Happy new year to all! Wishing you all more success, joy and peace in 2014. Anyone has a clue of where I am? This is my stay I had won for my blog review πŸ™‚ and so I thought it’s important to share my experience with all you wonderful viewers. After all I won this treat with some of your votes πŸ˜‰ I had actually won a room but then I upgraded it to a suite which made the experience even more wonderful. The suites are located in the 19th, 20th floors only for that wonderful view of Dubai from the top.

Above is what we exactly saw when we entered our luxury suite. Of course then you know, everyone surrounded the arabic sweets and it was all over in a minute :D. The Sofa and the living space was wonderful. We had 2 televisions in our suite. One for the bedroom and the other for the living room. By the way, all their televisions were from Sony and good ones ;). This hotel is just one year old hence the furniture is still as good as new.

There was this photography competition by the hotel to share a moment in their hotel and win prizes. So here I took them in action and enrolled this photo for their Perfect Moment competition. I did get some decent vote so i am now just waiting for the results. The grand winner get air tickets to Europe :d

The best room in the suite was their bathroom. It was the biggest room and mind blowing design. But I didn’t take any picture of it πŸ™ It had all that you needed. So that’s where i met the weighing machine. I noticed I gained 5 kilos this year. To my height I am supposed to be only 70kgs. The weighing machine says 75.9 where 0.9 is the weight of my camera.

How lucky can we get. The next day we wake up and it’s a rainbow just as we open our curtains. By the way, Our view was facing the Deira palm and on the right was the airport. So you could see planes every 3 mins flying by in the sky. Children really enjoyed the view from our window. We could also see the sharjah high rise buildings. Overall it was the best view you could have asked for and in the night with all street lights below, the view is special.

So you see. Even though i was having a great time I did think of all of you and ensured that I took my gadgets so I continue with my blog work and let my vacation not be a delay for the next post. You know it’s really easy to go to a restaurant and eat your tummy full but then there’s lot of work after that for a food blogger like me :p
