Weekend in DXB

My BFF walked into my office and said "Let's go to Dubai for weekend." And just like that I filed my short leave. I was a bit hesitant coz first, my department is under staff and second, I just deposited my money to my Philippines bank account. Anywho, we were able to travel to Dubai last January 24-27 with a lot of drama on the side. (I might share it to you next time).

We boarded United Airline and arrive Dubai very early morning of January 25. I have to say, we were surprise as the weather is not as cold in Doha. We were sweating when we exit the airport.

We checked in Holiday Inn Express Airport using Maribel's priority club points. (woot-woot). We were assigned in room 26. We are a bit shocked as there were no amenities in the room. Yes, yes, yes... this is our first time to check-in a Holiday Inn Express. We don't know what to expect. Being the girl scout that I am, I have my own toiletries. hihihi...

Without further ado, my short Dubai trip:
We stayed in Holiday Inn Express Airport
