Flying out via Qatar Airways at Al Maktoum International Airport in Jebel Ali, Dubai. The airport is one year old and not that busy (yet). The drive from Jumeirah Lakes Tower to the airport was smooth and no traffic at all. There’s a lot of space at the parking area in front of the airport; A rare in UAE.
What fascinates me with Dubai is that they have to be the first, tallest, biggest and most expensive. First they constructed the tallest building in the world, then they have to build the biggest mall (please correct me if I’m wrong if it’s still the biggest), lots of luxury cars and now the First Tram in the Gulf Region at a cost of $1.2 Billion.
Dubai Tram Phase One, a 10-kilometer (six-mile) light rail system ,was built by French and Belgian Companies and was inaugurated on November 11, 2014.
It was a nice Friday weather here in Dubai and perfect for a road trip on a weekend. I’ve been in Dubai for more than a month and I have not seen much except the area around where I’m staying, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach area and the malls (I like the latter part LOL). Kidding aside, I was really excited with this road trip, it’s something new to see and experience and I’ll be able to tell you about it here.

Happy travel to all of you my beloved readers and friends.
It was past lunch time and I have not eaten yet except for a cup of brewed coffee from home. Famished and craving for some protein since I started my low carbs diet and thought of driving to the restaurants near where I was. I went to Quad Nepo in Angeles City and decided to try K Cafe’. I wanted a steak and was curious with their Bulalo Steak. I wonder how this meat with big bones can be sliced into a steak size and cooked as a steak. For all my readers who are not familiar with Bulalo. Bulalo is the meat and knee cap of a cow and is typically cooked as a soup (Bulalo Soup) and it’s mostly an after party meal. It is one of the famous dish in the Philippines.
I also asked myself how I did that. I was surprised as well. As I am not a resident of United States of America, I took a chance to apply for a tourist visa at the South Korea Consulate in Dallas, Texas and fortunately I was provided a single entry which is valid for 90 days.
