When Friends Meet

Having been here in Dubai for a month now, one would think I have met a lot of people already, well, I haven’t. I have friends around but we never really get the chance to bond. Yesterday though, exactly that day I am celebrating my 1st month here, I met up with a long time friend at Dubai mall to do quite a number of stuff. This was also the day we went to get our personalized Nutella jars (which explains the same outfit). Read about that here. She’s celebrating her birthday in three days and since she lives in Abu Dhabi (a different city), she decided to do a pre – celebration here in Dubai.

First stop was the nail spa session (review on that soon!), followed by a visit to the brow bar of Benefit inside Sephora. You can try visiting Sephora branches and see if they have it near you if you’re tired of the usual threading for your brows! It costs 80AED, though I suggest you either call or drop by to book your slot in advance since they’re normally packed. Happy that the “brow master” was a Kabayan (we call other Filipinos that) so we got a free mini-makeover too!

We also saw “The Other Woman” – really hilarious, it actually gave us both “life pegs” and a whole new desire to go to Bahamas! If you haven’t seen it, run to the nearest cinema – it’s worth your money! 🙂

Up next was the highlight of the day: cooking “Filipino” dinner for AIESECers all over the world. We made a mad dash to the grocery for the ingredients and as soon as we were able, we started making the dishes. I don’t have photos of the food though. We prepared Chicken Adobo, Adobo flakes, Beansprouts with Tofu and Turon (baked banana).
