Live, Work, Explore

I have so many things in my head lately and so far those things are still in my draft folder and unfinished.  That's why I couldn't post anything here and it has been awhile.  Forgive me.

I just thought now to post something, some blatherings or some non-sense, just to keep this blog alive.  Anyways, I've been staring at this magazine named, UAE Live, Work, Explore.  I like it, the images are amazing and the information are helpful for people like me who need a break.  I mean, something to try out while living, working in the UAE, I should explore the place as well.  I hope that in my future posts, I will be able to share with  you interesting places that we can both enjoy.  Meantime, it's time for me to work to able to live!

Love Peace and LOL!

People-watching is the greatest therapy for a lonely soul

I know how it feels when you suddenly have to change your lifestyle. I have been living in U@E for 10 years now. It was like coming to another planet. From the Airport, I felt like I was just dreaming, I can’t take my eyes to look around with the elegance design of the place. It was like a 5-star hotel. As I approached to the Immigration, the Arab officer greeted me “Magandang umaga po, Salamat and Welcome to Dubai”. I was delighted with their hospitality. I gave him a smile and replied “Magandang umaga rin po at Walang anuman”. Since Dubai is an “Open City” we (expat) are not forced to wear their national clothes. However, here you’ll see Arab Men and Women wearing Candura and Abaya, respectively (their national clothes). But only a quarter of the population are Arabs; almost one third are from India, and about the same from Asia and the Far East; the rest are Europeans.

Life in Dubai is not as hectic as the other foreign land, here just one job you can survive for the daily expenses,…

Madinat Jumeirah at night

Last week, was a busy week, I took my car out of the casa*, and she look gorgeous. Collected the clearance certificate from the bank, went to Majlis* office to get my shoe voucher and went back to the flat* and stay online. It was a fruitful week.

Unfortunately, with all those “things to do” list, I was unable to update this blog. So I have to catch up, since I promise myself that I have to post 365 informative blogs for 12 months.  I hope it is informative :)

Anyways, in my previous post "Madinat Jumeirah the Arabian hotel and resort in Dubai", I've posted pictures of the place while the sun was up and thought of sharing how Madinat Jumeirah looks like at night.
