FAMILY WEEKEND

Last weekend, to celebrate our reunion, Poy surprised me and Mimay with an overnight booking in Emirates Concorde Hotel. It was something I am looking forward talaga, to spend more intimate time with my mag-ama. Thanks bibi for again, making me and Mimay very happy with your surprise =)
We were extra happy because Mimay was very delighted with our room. As in super hilata agad sya when she saw the bed and was jumping excitedly here and there. Our room was in the 6th floor and overlooking Dubai creek. The place was very serene and the interior was really beautiful. After some playtime, Mimay immediately fell asleep. Enjoy yang anak ko sa malamig eh, very same like her dadee and I’m their opposite. Super comforter tuloy ang drama ko.
After we got some rest, we headed to the hotel’s rooftop swimming pool. Our Mimay was happier when she saw the pool, kinilig talaga sya! Swimming is our daughter’s ultimate favorite activity. I am the happiest momma on earth seeing the hubby and our one and only baby playing happily together. It was priceless!
We had our dinner after in The Wok House located in Burjuman Centre. The hubby is craving for something spicy so I thought of Thai food. It’s our first time to dine in this Asian restaurant and it was really sulit.
For the starter, we had our all time fave Tom Yum prawn soup. The asim and anghang is perfect. Then we ordered the fried rice mixed with chicken, egg and prawns. Rice pa lang ulam na! Nyummy! For the main course, we had crispy beef and roast duck. Both are so tasty and the orders were very generous that we had to take home some left overs, ang dami nya kasi talaga. Even the drinks are highly commendable. I tried their Quick Hit which is combination of tea, cranberry juice and other fruit juices which I forgot na. I only asked kasi which is their best selling drinks and this is what they offered to me. Poy naman settled for Sprite. 
Mimay loved their fried rice that we had to give her, her own plate and utensils. Aside from their yummy food, they have the friendliest staff ever. We give ‘The Wok House’ 10 thumbs up!
The following day, we enjoyed the scrumptious buffet breakfast served in the Creek View restaurant of the hotel. It’s included in our overnight package and it’s sulit as well. There are a lot of options to choose from in the buffet. I loved the different variants of freshly baked croissants. I also had French toast, fried & boiled eggs, potato wedges, mortadella, ham, donuts, fresh orange juice, coffee and fruits. PG lang haha!
Right after breakfast, we went to hotel’s rooftop again for another round of “miming!” It was scorching hot that we had to stay only for 30 minutes and make uto of Mimay that we will swim in the bath tub instead. Buti pumayag hehe.
We checked out at 1pm and went straight to Dubai Festival City. We had Charleys Grilled Subs for lunch. Calories galore talaga ko since I came back from vacation. Promise sa August diet na ulit ako, promise! I had Philly Steak while my bibi tried their Chicken Teriyaki. Whats good about Charleys is that Subs are grilled right infront of you. Kaya nakakalaway talaga as you wait for your order.
After lunch, we went to Ikea to get the cabinet hubby is eyeing for. He wanted it for our room since we have no more space in our closet for Mimay’s clothes. Since we have a very skimpy room, we decided to transfer our closet inside our toilet and place Mimay’s new cabinets in our room.
Nice our new cabinet no? Kulang na lang yung 42’ TV ni poy ;)

On our way home, bangenge si Mimay. Ikaw na magkaron ng magulang na galgal haha! There goes our perfect family bonding weekend. Hay I love weekends talaga!
Kayo, how did you spend your weekend?
