dubai again <3

went to dubai this past weekend. for a bachelorette. mehak’s bachelorette. though honestly it was more of a fun, chilled long weekend and less of a bachelorette.

we dint do anything crazy. or wild. we went out, all in all, just for just one night. but it was still so good and i realised that once i was back. because of a serious case of ‘the monday morning blues’. in my mind i’m still there. partly because all my other friends have stayed back for a few more days {perks of not being a lawyer??}

and now. here’s my trip in pictures..

^^ let’s start with food? .. we had the most amazing lebanese food at khan murjan. at the wafi mall. the food was SO good. we had the beiruti hummus, falafel, batatas harra, grilled chicken and zatar {arabic bread}. along with the food this place has a great ambiance. casual. open air. and this very middle eastern vibe going for it. ^^

^^^ we stayed at the marriot marquis the first night we were there. the hotel people were very nice and upgraded us to a suite. which had the most amazing view {i am noticing a pattern here too. but i do not exaggerate when i tell you that almost all the places i’ve stayed at dubai have had such great views that i feel the need to mention it. again and again} this is alifya and i trying to ‘pose candidly’ . know what i mean?. we obviously do realise that we are not fooling anyone. it was such a fun morning. the marriot has a very good heated pool and a beautiful pool side area. ^^

^^ the last 2 nights we spent at the burj khalifa. our friends chintan – chandni live there on the 50th floor. they have a beautiful view from their apartment {here i go again!} and this is the hot tub on the 73rd floor. which is open to all residents. it was breathtaking. the picture says it all right?? oh and the view …. ;)^^

^^ here’s all of us. our ONLY night out at zuma. zuma reminds me a lot of the wink bar at mumbai. the crowd was So friendly and good. it was a crazy night which makes me realise time and again that my friends are SUCH a fun lot. oh and pretty. but then you already know that^^

^^ the dubai fountain outside the dubai mall and other pictures of the mall. because i KID you not we spent 80% of our trip at that mall. but that’s what you get when you have 4 girls  and the worlds largest mall all in one place^^
