Just when you think 2020 couldn’t get much worse, Kim K goes and announces that Keeping Up With The Kardashians is ending. I mean seriously Kim, read the room! So as we all tackling this mourning process in our own unique way (ice cream binge/Series 1 marathon/week off work – whatever works for you!), we’ve been getting nostalgic about our favourite eps and have rounded up all the best Kardashian-Jenner Middle Eastern moments.

October 2011 – Kim and Kris’s first trip in Dubai
Kris and Kim land in Dubai and stay at The Atlantis for their trip. Kim opened the Millions of Milkshakes branch at Dubai Mall in a red dress that is still Pinterest board worthy. She said that it was this event which made her feel like she had ‘made it’, saying “So I’d say 2010, 2011 was like, 'I’ll do anything'. Cupcakes, milkshakes. So I go to a milkshake place in Dubai, thinking, ‘Oh, it’s just, you know, some little milkshake store’. Maybe like 250,000 people showed up to the Dubai Mall”.
Wow I'm in such awe over Dubai! My hotel is so insane,can't wait to do some blogs & show u guys! Too much to tweet! I'm obsessed with Dubai!— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) October 12, 2011
