When it caught fire! #NewYearinDubai

Salam!!
So a new vlog is up

and ofc I’m about to follow it up with some pictures up in here!
So day 3 in Dubai was NOT as I thought it would be. We imagined it to be one of the funniest days there and fancy chamncy but naah.. It was so not.

We started of the day with pool chill (oh yeah). After that we took our time to just hang out and get ready for our dinner and fireworks.

We split up in two groups and went to Dubai Mall. We romed around for a bit and ate cold stone ice cream, yummy!
It was five mintues between these pictures.↓

After that we had to have our new year photoshoot by the Dubai mall entrence duuh.. Lol we just stood there and took a bunch of photos and then we headed to Al Hallab, the restaurant we booked for new years. Their food, at least the first part that we got to eat, was delicious. I absolutely love lebanese food!

And then in the midst of our dinner Sofia is like: “I think they started a little celebration earlier, isn’t that fireworks?” And we turn around to see sparks falling down and we were like… ? And after about six seconds we see material burning and falling down a building. The sparks turned into flames and we started seeing a little bit of smoke. We realized that the building in front of us and in front of burj khalifa was on fire.. I went out and the fire spread faster than Usain Bolt, I was in chock. After ten to fifteen minutes all 20 floors were on fire and there were bigger pieces of material falling down in flames. We decided to leave and started walking towards the exit and in that moment they started evacuating the restaurant.

We went to the other side of the mall, outside the main entrance, and just sat there for two hours (until midnight) since we couldn’t get home anyway. There were no cabs or buses, the roads were closed etc. We watched the fireworks and started walking home. We walked for TWO HOURS(!), without shoes (!), on the high way (!). The whole night was just surreal. The roads near Dubai Mall were closed so there were A LOT of people walking towards their direction. We wanted to get home to JBR and let me tell you something, IT IS NOT CLOSE. So after walking on empy highways, crazy busy highways and on dirty roads, we found a cab… I’ve never felt so at ease after finding a darn cab! When we got home we were hungry, ofc, so we changed clothes and went to Operation falafel.

I will never forget our new year in Dubai, it was the opposite of what we had imagined and planned but then again God is the best planner. Anyway if you are still reading, props to you my friend!  I hope to see you in my next post iA. 🙂

May Allah bless you 2016, may He keep you and your close ones healthy. May God shower you in succes in dunya and deen. May God keep you happy and safe, always! 
– Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤

The time Africa was a country!

Salam!
Here is the vlog for day two and some pics, I forgot my camera home that day but my phone for the rescue lol. So I got some pics and for some reason they don’t want to load up on the vlog so you only got a few.

This day was super relaxed and fun, we tried to relax but still get in as much as we can in one day, as usual. We went to:
– the pool,
– to eat breakfast,
– to the beach,
– dinner at Jedoudna (best libanese food ever!),
– global village.
There were a lot of people in Dubai and it felt like everyone was in Global Village lol. After that we went to Operation falafel where we lived and just hung out even more.

I could not have asked for better weather or company, our days were so fun and filled with laughter alhamdulillah. I absolutely love  Dubai and everything that goes with it.

Day 1 – Dubai + Vlog

Salam!
Soooo my first blogpost this year, 2016! 🙂 I’m so excited to be back. I rang in the new year in Dubai and therefore  the first blogpost should be about Dubai hihi. I will post a vlog together with a post of what we did there everyday, we were there for 10 days and we absolutely loved it as usual. I do think our company is what makes the trips so wonderful. Love the girls.

Our first day in Dubai was so much fun! We were like small children trying to do everything in one day and we were super duper happy lol. We woke up in Sharjah, went to JBR to our apartment and also stayed there for lunch, went to Dubai mall and then to Dubai Marina.. It was a long day that went by fast that’s for sure. Here is a vlog and some pictures that sums up our first day.
