Hello 2013! | Lady & her Sweet Escapes

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.

for the fireworks to start.

Red Shrimp Terrace
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! :)
