Hey Beauties and happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a great week!
So, if you’ve missed the last few blog posts on my trip from Orlando, Florida to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Singapore and now to Dubai, make sure to head on over to my blog and check out those posts so you’re updated!
When we finally reached Malaysia from Singapore, we instantly checked into the same hotel we’d stayed at prior which is Berjaya Times Square hotel!
Since it was still around 10AM in Malaysia, we decided to make use of it. So, of course the first stop was at the Mama Kadai Shop to have a well needed iced coffee and then we decided to have a taxi drive us around little india to purchase a few head pieces for our stay in Dubai. This place was filled with tents and each tent was filled with beautiful clothing.
When our taxi driver was heading back to drop us off to the hotel, he decided to show us a building that will takeover as the tallest building in Malaysia. It’s supposed to be finished building by next year summer, but let me just say that this building was massive!
He also recommended a restaurant that was across the street from our hotel to have dinner at because he seriously loves the portion sizes for the price so that’s exactly where we had dinner at.
We ordered a kabob platter and we also ordered a mini cake for our daughter because her birthday was also during that month!
We had everything already packed so we decided to call it a night before our early flight tomorrow with Emirates on the A380 which I was beyond excited for!
The next morning, we headed to the airport and once we boarded the plane I was in awe at how big it is! Also, much credit to the Emirates flight attended because they maintained great service even though there was a ton of passengers aboard.
When we were approaching closer to Dubai, the view was amazing. A big desert and beautiful blue water that followed. I really didn’t realize how developed Dubai was becoming, but I just couldn’t wait to explore!
After the boring process of immigration and luggage claims, we headed straight for our hotel since it was getting pretty late. We stayed at Al Jawhara Gardens Hotel and it was beyond beautiful! We literally had our own apartment in Dubai. There was 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a full sized living room, dining room, kitchen, a laundry room and a balcony! It was only about 5 minutes from the Airport which was convenient as well.
Being that we’ve always heard people mention Jumeirah, we wanted to see what else Dubai had to offer and I’m really glad we did because Dubai is absolutely beautiful and not only rich in the finer things, but also rich in culture and hospitality.
Since the night had quickly came upon us, we decided to sleep in the next day and start exploring the places near the hotel. The first place we decided to explore was City Centre Deira because we needed a few grocery items and that mall had a grocery store which was insane! While we were there, we decided to have Charley’s Philly Steaks because it was seriously cheap!
When we left there of course we had to visit the highly talked about “Gold Souk” and it was seriously worth it! My husband and I’s 5 year marriage anniversary is August 2 so we had an idea of upgrading our rings in Dubai. I’m not a big gold wearer, but when in Dubai right? Haha.
We shopped quite a bit at the gold souk and we didn’t only buy gold, but we also bought Kaftans, the emirate traditional wear for men and tons of jewels, etc… Before we knew it, it was dinner time and everyone recommended that we go to Karachi Darbaar for their food because it’s delicious. Ok, let me just say that restaurant was not only delicious, but we were blown away by the portion size! Oh my gosh, let’s just say that we had leftovers for later that night and for breakfast the next day! Haha.
After dinner, we decided to get a taxi back to the hotel and we wanted to rest up for our day tomorrow.
The next day, we decided to visit Jumeirah! Lookout for details on our day at Jumeirah on Friday!
