DFT in Dubai Part 1

Okay, so this a little late, about 2 months late :p but I would still like to share some of my adventures in the Golden City of Dubai where I was not only able to eat different dishes but also enjoyed picturesque scenes, not to mention quality time with my siblings.

Lucky me that I was able to sample some of the best dishes and experience different culture in one vacation!
