I mentioned in my last post that the whole of last week was spent celebrating my birthday. As indulgent as that might sound, it simply meant that I celebrated each day with thanks - I never expected to be able to visit any part of Asia this year nor did I think that I would enjoy my move to Dubai as much as I have! I am particularly grateful for the amazing new friends I've made since I moved! So naturally, on my actual birthday (20 October), I chose to have dinner with some of my favorite friends - new and old!
We went to Thiptara at the Palace hotel in Dubai and it was spectacular! Our laughter and banter was punctuated with good food and an amazing view of the fountain shows. I was really pleased we had a table overlooking the fountains, Thiptara appeared to be fully booked but found a spot for me and my friends when I mentioned it was my birthday!

It was also my first time at the Palace Hotel and I was completely taken in by how beautiful the grounds were. I will definitely be returning to have some sheesha by the pool!
My favourite part was definitely the fountain show, I've seen the fountains so many times now but it definiely never gets old!
