Dubai Hotel Special Deals

I spoke with my cousin who is working in Dubai as a bartender. I told him that we want to have a vacation in Dubai and we also want to meet him there. Of course, I asked him about the hotel accommodation and what airlines he can suggest. He suggested two airlines, Etihad and Emirates.

Tourists usually visit Dubai in events like IRB Dubai World Rugby 7's and that is the season when I want to see Dubai. We are planning to take Emirates Airlines from Emirates to Dubai. I heard that it is a good airline. Now that we already have Airline to take what's next to figure out is what hotel in Dubai we should rent. Hotels in Dubai aren't that expensive as what others thought, that is according to my cousin. You can actually find reasonable hotels specially if you'll book the last minute in Jumeirah Beach hotels.

I have seen pictures in Dubai and it is truly a place that must see. I can't wait to explore the place and have fun with my cousin in Dubai.

America's Best Dance crew Season 5 just started two weeks ago. I love watching that show and of all the groups in this season, I like the group "Poreotix". They are funny, I like their style, they are entertaining and they easily captured the audience by their charisma on how they present their performance. Watch how they danced Taylor Swift's Love Story.

I am getting so addicted to online shopping. Why not? It is very convenient for me because I don't need to go to the store to buy things that I want. I also don't need to be in long line to pay the item that I am buying plus it is much safer to shop online specially when the weather is bad.

At first, I was hesitant in buying stuff online because I thought that it is much expensive compare to buying in store. My hesitations faded after I got into Extrabux website on accident. Extrabux is a website to combine comparison shopping with coupons and cash back rebates every time you shop using your credit card. So the more you shop on their website is the more savings you will get. This website also offers lots of online shopping deals which make you feel like you are really in the shopping in the store.

Our economy is tough right now so almost all of us wants to save money. I think that shopping online with combination of discount coupons and cash back rebates will save us more and it makes us wiser in spending our money.

My Valentine Gift

Hubby called me and said "I'll be home late because I'll go to a store" I asked "What store and what will you buy in the store?" he replied "I'll buy you a gift which is none of your business" we both laughed. After few minutes, he called again, "I am buying you a digicam, what kind do you want?" I was happy when he said he is buying me one but I was hiding my happiness from him on the phone LOL! I replied "Why are you buying digicam? that is expensive besides we still have digicam" he answered "Let's send it to the Philippines or its up to you on what do you want to do with it" he continued "Listen, I am buying you a gift. So, what kind of camera do you want?" I replied "I want Nikon touchscreen" (yeah, pakipot pa ako sa umpisa LOL!). Hubby said "There is no Nikon here, all is here is Canon, Sony, Casio, Kodak, Philips ,.,". I was browsing Nikon camera on net while he was mentioning those brands. I shockingly said "Oh my! Nikon cost almost $300" hubby replied "Oh baby! you are not that worth it" LMAO! So at the end of the conversation we decided to just delay buying digicam and think about it more.

He came home carrying plastic bags full of baby stuff and he handed me chocolate in a heart shaped box. He said "I don't want to give you my Valentine gift" I said "What is your gift?" he replied "Something you can wear". When he said that, my first thought was a sexy lingerie so I told him "No way! I love my granny panties". We both laughed and I said to him "Common show it to me, where is it?" he said "Ok, stay here". He then went to his truck and took my gift. He gave me a rectangular red box and I opened it. I was happy because it was a beautiful sparkling bracelet. I looked at the price and I was shocked. I asked him "Where did you get money for this?" he said "I was paying that bracelet since September which you don't know" I was still stunned. "It was suppose to be my Christmas gift to you but I just fully paid it now so it turned out to be my Valentine Day gift". I usually jump up and down whenever I am happy or something makes me excited but this time, I was stunned lol! The bracelet has 16 topaz stones. He said "When I saw it, I know it describes you and it belongs to you". Awww! I so love it :)

Thank you baby for this gift :) I love you so much and Happy Valentine and you are the sweetest eveeerrr!!!
