I would like to say that the reason I booked our hotel stay is to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary.
But the truth is I reserved a room way before we went to Philippines/Hong Kong because I know that I will need another holiday to recover from my holidays.
As it turned out August 4 happens to be our church wedding anniversary.
And I now have a very valid reason for a staycation. Yes!
(Before I get condemned: we were married twice (civil and church) and years apart. Remembering dates is one of my weakness. I can’t even remember my brother’s birthday who was born 30+ years ago! Sorry Gibson and RG. It’s not you, it’s me)
I used my Airmiles points to book a room in Westin Al Habtoor but when we checked-in, the reception told us that due to on-going construction in the hotel, we were moved at W Dubai Al Habtoor City. As we’ve stayed in Westin before, I don’t mind trying W Hotel.
I read that W is generally marketed to younger crowd. It has that futuristic, modern, hip vibe.
Very us. Choz.
Around 5pm, it’s time to hit the pool.
Gibson, as usual, abstain from exposing his porcelain skin so it’s just the kids and me.
Overall, it was a nice two days. The service is as good as you expect in any 5-star hotel in Dubai.
It’s another happy experience to be added on our memory bank and celebrating our 11th anniversary with our kids is more significant than if we celebrated only as a couple.
