Dubai

we went to dubai in january, 2016. the last week of january. it’s already been two whole months.  have been meaning to write about our time there before. but man, does time fly…

it will forever be one of my most memorable trips with the husband. yet.

we didn’t do much. mostly just ate really good food. shopped at the dubai mall. swam a lot {does jacuzzi count as swimming?} and spent quality time with few of our favorite people.

we stayed at husband’s friends house near downtown dubai. very close to the burj khalifa. which was great as that’s where most of our friends stay so everything was walking distance. also they were just moving in themselves, so helping them unpack and sort the furniture was a fun and new experience.

the dubai shopping festival was going on and they had a beautiful outdoor market at the burj khalifa park, all the days that we were there. husband and i walked by the outdoor market on our way to the khalifa.

on this trip, we finally got to try  pappa roti! AND it’s gone right to the top on my list of favorite foods. i liked the regular bun. but husband liked the nutella one better.

one night we kinda ‘crashed’ a bachelorette and chandni and i  had an amazing meal at zuma. inn my previous visits to zuma we mostly just had their cocktails. but guys their truffle mushroom rice?!? i’d go back just to have another bowl of it ;)

we tried out cafe habana and the mexican food there was surprisingly good. so were their drinks {a.k.a the blow job shop. no seriously}

we also went for the arab health expo importers meet at the habtoor grand beach resort and met few of husband’s colleagues from germany. post dinner we had a few drinks at buddha bar with chris and anette. it was a night that we would never forget. our last one  with chris {r.i.p. chris, you will forever be in our hearts}

although i left early. was there just for 4 days. husband stayed back a few more nights for work. it was sad leaving him behind. and just leaving dubai. over time i have grown to really like the city
