Long Weekend Getaway

Road trip on Thursday, 17th February 2011. Yeah U heard it right today is a public holiday for us… good thing that govt. moved the date of the commemoration of Prophet Mohammad’s Birthday instead of 15th. This is our chance to explore and enjoy our journey.
Me & my housemates decided to go for a trip to Abudhabi. First time of Ate Sol to see the sights in Abudhabi…She’s working for almost 3 years  in UAEbut never been in this place. Well I’m so excited as well even though I had lived and worked for 1 year and 3 months. For me this is some kind of a travel getaway I will treasure and a memory to keep in my online journal.
From Dubai (getting ready…) 1:30 P.M
Arte naman boo need muna pic before lumarga:))


ALDAR HQ - The world's first circular skyscraper - Abu Dhabi


Sheikh Zayed Mosque – the largest mosque in the country and the eight largest in the world. It was named after Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder and the President of the United Arab Emirates and who is also buried next to the mosque. (The tomb of the Highness is not allowed to take photos)

Thanks naman to Ate Sol she brought her SLR & Tripod:)
I was so amazed with the structure of the mosque even from a far… I appreciate it more when I was really there. There are lots of people entering even European, Chinese were there to visit and walk around. But before you enter the exciting part was the wearing of their Cultural cloth which is the Abaya. (black long dress)

Bagay ba???
We are feeling hungry so we dropped by at Marina Mall to have dinner in IKEA. It’s good to eat here if you’re on a diet in terms of weight coz they serve pasta and of course a diet to your budget. J JJ
After our cheap yet satisfying dinner we stayed and take a walk to see the nice and beautiful view of Abudhabi Corniche.  We bought Saj and Krispy Kreme (yum yum yum!)

can't open... need some help!!!

Kuya Landz to the rescue...hehehe:)

Let's start..:)

It’s getting late…. Let’s go to the next and last destination….
Ferrari World
It was fun and joyful ride! We reached home at 12 midnight.
So long for now… till my next travel blog. (xoxo)
