The closest I can be to outer space. Packed light, but not forget to bring something you can enjoy on an arduous long flight (9 hour flight manila to dubai). Spent 12 days on that bustling city. Hate the smell but loved(! and still love) the food, or should i say the serving~ money well spent.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, unfortunately, I only read this on my way to DXB, after I landed I’ve never got the chance to pick this book up again.
Cheese croissant (love it!) and cheese platter (loved it but I need that served with a beer and they don’t serve beer not after lunch time).
Met with a former classmate whom I’m not really close with but have a mutual friend, so there, went around Dubai Mall and watched the first show of the infamous Dubai Mall fountain.
And of course, Kinokuniya. Do I need to say more?
Hardee’s! Loved their burger but sadly didn’t enjoyed it that much because I was already pretty full that day! It was only my 2nd (or 3rd?) day in Du but a lot of acquaintance wants to treat me. Hey, its bad saying no to grace. 😛
Slow sunday. After 2 days of non-stop eating fast food, my tummy kind of went ballistic and I craved for something that tastes like home, and ta-da, Mami. As usual, it’s delish~
American breakfast, yum turkey bacon yum.
Went back to Dubai Mall bc I need some me time surrounded nothing but books 😛 You are free to read everything in here. I wept happy tears inside.
Public beach near the ( i forgot what’s the name of the building, sorry)
Woke up to a terrible sand storm! Which they say could last up to three days which caused me panic bc the hl~ of my du 3p is happening in 3 days time. Luckily the sandstorm only lasts a day.
Everything is swell.
SO MANY FEELS. DON’T LET ME START.
Judy (whom we’ve just met on the queue to the concert) and Quennie! I met Q on twitter when I was asking around when will the tickets to the concert will be distributed. She replied and the rest as they say is history.
Thanks again Q for the treats. Instant big sister! 😀
Desert Safari which is a little bit depressing because there are litters all over the desert! What a shame.
Authentic Arabian food which I do not like. The best food that I’ve tasted while in Dubai is in Chickenow. I super dig their tenders served with grandma sauce (??) I miss it 😥 (I also like the katsudon in wagamama)
Don’t let the opportunity to try something new pass. My last dinner in Dxb is at Nando’s, Niall’s favorite 😛
And that concludes my short but felt like a lifetime trip to Dubai. Doesn’t really have that much to say 😛 IDK not in the mood to chitchat.
thanks mom! U DA BEST 😀
P.S. These pictures are from my iPod 5th gen (except the first two) edited in hashtag VSCOcam. This is not everything.. I’ve got to sort the one’s from my other camera
which is a job I’m kind of dreading to do…what a lazy daisy.
