Day one stories : (Dec 2015) My flight supposed to take off at 15:15 (3:15PM) but delayed for 4 hours due to operational problems. Luckily I managed to contact my airport pick-up transfer to re-schedule pick-up time. Thanks B.K
Still at home ~ Super excited

Sitting for 4 hours doing nothing leads to doing selfies

 

Finally boarded at 6PM but only take-off around 7PM
BUT anyway,
It was a dreamt come true. Finally I managed to set foot to one of the most artificial country on earth! Well ~ in a  good way of course.
What nature didn’t gave you ~ you creates!!!

I stayed for 6 nights at Ramada Downtown Hotel. Room types : 1 bedroom Suite Facing Fountain.
Part of the reason I stayed here is to experience it first hand for future travel business arrangement.
My Rate : 5/5
My Room at Ramada Downtown Dubai
A bit pricey but it served the purpose of my staying there. For info, most hotel in Dubai Downtown are pricey because of it’s posh area. I like the fact that I can walks to Dubai Mall and the Boulevard in approx. 10-15 minutes and safe for walking alone. Their staffs are all very courteous and welcoming.
Enjoy my selfies on the night of arrival. Mind you ~ its 12am!
Dubai Fountain 2015
I’m so teruja (excited). Then I go to bed. Same as now.
Good night. Wait for my next entry.
