Ramadan Kareem! Next to the Christmas season, this is probably one of my most favorite months ever since I came here in Dubai. Aside from the shortened office timings (9AM to 2PM), we also get long holidays, and lesser (if not zero) workload for one whole month. In addition, I get to fast which actually means good news for my current game plan to eventually shed off these unwanted flabs. :)
A lot of you have asked me in the past what it's like to live here in the Middle East. To be honest I'm not a big fan of the scorching hot weather that we have 90% of the time, but in a nutshell, I feel very lucky because life here is actually very laid-back and fun. This country also boasts with some pretty amazing and record-breaking structures.
This is Dubai's Dancing Fountain located in the manmade lake right beside The Dubai Mall. Its performances are magically set with lights and music and can be seen only during the weekend. Really breathtaking and I even got so emotional the first time I watched it during my first Christmas here away from my family and friends back home.
This is one of my very first photos here in Dubai last 2010, and behind me is the very famous Burj Al Arab. It's a luxury hotel shaped like a sailboat and considered as the fourth tallest hotel in the world, which actually stands in a man-made island along Jumeirah Beach. An overnight stay here can cost you a whooping $1000 minimum.
Unfortunately, I'm such a lame bee and have just been hibernating at home for the past months when I don't have work, but I'll try to show you some more peeks and snapshots of Dubai once the weather gets a bit cooler. Just want this long summer to get over and done with so I can once again enjoy the great outdoors.
How about you? Anything special or interesting happening in your part of the globe? :)
