You know I love having a festive, relaxing and entertaining weekend and most of all to have a new experience. Nothing brings me more joy than having to experience or see something I have never before. I feel like good ambience is everything!!! So starting this month I will have monthly guide to places you can visit in Dubai. I will do my research and make a list of every place I feel like is cool, unique, hip and interesting. If I find something along the month I will add that too.

If you haven’t already heard DFC has started Water, Light and Fire show which is pretty cool. You can see laser lights, 3D images on building and a guy dancing in water not literally but you will get it in the picture below.
I’ve read that this person is actually in a room dancing live while he is being projected out in the open. Pretty cool right? Dubai broke the Largest Water Screen projection Record on Monday, 26th December 2016 with this. Dubai!!!! just breaking records like I break my mugs and plates while doing the dishes (every other day).
