Christmas, New Year and UAE!

PS: I know, I know. Wondering that its been 3months we celebrated Christmas and of course we are done with Easter vacation as well, and I am still with my Christmas vacation post? This post has almost been dying in my drafts. So I decided to get rid of this today. I can't ignore posting few posts - How much ever late they are!

My ideal/dream Christmas and New Year time is to celebrate with:
Heavy snow, making snow man
Decorating christmas tree
Inviting friends for dinners, parties
Become a santa, gift children
Eat a delicious cake. 

No wonder I failed one more time in last 3consecutive years. Every time I had a chance, I had something else popping up suddenly. Well this time, it happened again but in a different way. Infact in the totally opposite way. 

There wasnt snow, there wasnt cold. But there was Sun.
Couldnt decorate a tree but could get fresh air from it.
Friends, dinners, parties could never be missed.
Whereever I go, Shopping follows
Became a buddy to my niece
Ate loads of delicious food

And all this happened in UAEEEEEE *Ok, there should only be one E. That was just my excitement.*

How good that can be! I wasnt expecting this trip very soon as I thought I am just settled in this place. But it happened and in an awesome way. My long lasting wish has been fulfilled as well with mom and dad visiting at the same time. We all were together having fun for straight 2weeks. There wasn't a single day which I regret of not spending well. We roamed everyday, everywhere. Dubai, Abudhabi, Sharjah, Ras-Al-Khaimah, Oman. These are the emirates we could cover mostly. 

Desert Safari, Dubai: One of the famous and popular things to do in Dubai. Going in those high ride safaris, camel ride, belly dancing, good OK food etc.

Beach: Who doesn't love the blue waters!

Acquariums: This is the most beautiful fish I have ever seen.

Dhow Cruise, Oman: We quickly included Oman and this cruise made our trip exciting unexpectedly. We got a private cruise for our family and it made it more special.

Masjid, Abu dhabi: I am wondering why is this not in the World Wonders when Taj Mahal is. This one of those beautiful pieces.

Malls: For all the shopping freaks, 2 things would happen to you. 1. You are going to go mad with loads of shopping at worthy prices. 2. You would feel jealous or be bored looking at the malls at every corner of the roads. 
Dubai Mall, Dragon Mall, Sharjah Mall, Center Point etc etc. Even kids are so much used to these names. My Niece loves the 2-Dirham store which is like the Dollar store.

Global Village: A huge shopping and entertainment place where they represent many countries, their culture, food, clothing etc. It could take more than a day to cover the place. And more than a week to cover all countries. I could visit many countries except India as I know what's going to be in there.

Tall buildings, Dubai & Abudhabi: These are the most beautiful huge and tall buildings I have seen ever. This a very clean place at one end and could be dirty at other end like New York.

There are many more miscellaneous places to go around. It was such a worthy trip!


  1. Nice travelogue! BTW, I love white Christmases too! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Remember the Fearless girl facing the Wall Str…

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

What is L.O.V.E.?

The four lettered happiest, hurtful, mysterious (and what not!) word causing happiness, pain and loads of confusion in lives of people. While I started to write something about it on this "so called" special day, nothing popped up in my mind. Like nothing. Nada. 
I questioned myself - Can we really say/write about love? Can we really define love? Isn't Love a feeling to experience and an expression to let someone know about your feeling? There are SO many kinds of love that words alone can never do it justice. Probably that is the reason they simplified it to the phrase 'I Love You'.
Love towards our parents, siblings, husband/wife, kids, family, friends, pets, acquaintances, and even to a stranger, we show our love and respect. Each one of us has our own feeling, experience, definition and obviously our own ways of expressing it.
Love is like a sneeze, I feel.. you know.. the restlessness before and the relaxation after. Its exactly the same. And you cannot explain…
