Hello 2013!

Hey guys, Happy New Year! So, how did you welcome 2013? I hope you all had a blast just like I did! I gave 2013 a grand welcome in  the middle of a busy highway, strange but true! :) 

My husband and I had a good New Year's Eve dinner at Red Shrimp, a restaurant with a terrace, which I thought has a great view of the fireworks display at Burj Khalifa. We were surprised when we arrived at the table reserved for us; Burj Khalifa was nowhere in sight! There is a thick layer of glass blocking the view. Due to the zero visibility of the tower, we hurriedly went to the main road after dinner, 10 minutes before midnight, to see the annual fireworks show at the world's tallest.

We were supposed to be up there (in that terrace after the green glass of the mall's facade).

Watching Fireworks Burj Khalifa
See that little red glitters? That's the fireworks bursting around Burj Khalifa! :)

I really think I should buy a better camera this year! :)

And because I want you to appreciate the fireworks display, which I know you really can't
on the photos that I took, here's a photo from www.gulfnews.com. You can also watch the video here

More travel tips, more foodie adventures and definitely more sweet escapes coming up!

    1. The fireworks were awesome. But of course, I still felt incomplete... NYE could have been perfect if we were able to spend it in the Philippines.

  12. Happy New Year! the fireworks must have looked amazing! I missed out on seeing lovely fireworks on NYE, because I was at work. The ones I saw weren't that great, or maybe it was just that I wasn't witnessing them with family and kids around me all in awe.
