we're trying them all...
and we're trying the lebanese stuffs too!

the gold souq experience

it was one of those days when we had the urge to just go anywhere... agreed, dubai has its wonders yet to be explored. and the 4 of us were the adventurers. not willing to bring out a dirham out of our pockets but very much willing to challenge the heat and the map. so off we went to Gold Land.

we met at my office. it's a few minutes away from Gold Souq, but i told you several times that one could not trust me when it comes to directions. it took us a few more twists and turns than necessary before we reached the market. "souq" by the way is the arabic term for market.

so enjoy prowling over the pictures and help us pray that one day (inshallah) we will be able to get to that point when we could afford a gram or two of these precious metal.

want some?

the adventure of the 4 dreamers...
how do you turn your eyes off those glittery items?
together we dreamed of that day when we would be economically free and able to buy ourselves and our families all these things.
but not now yet.
these are all for our eyes only in the meantime.
come have a look!

after the goldful night, back to reality...
tired faces while waiting for the bus


i want to write something...

... but it's not easy when ugly people are beside you, distracting you, and just becomes "impediment" personified. geezuz, how i wish to throw them out of the door and simply live my life on my own. i'd rather spare you the details (hekhekhek)...



... was a very tiring day. without jaya, i had to be 'Multitasking' personified. there was so much to do and it seemed like i didn't even had time to breathe. i was near breaking point and i had the urge to go to the manager's office to complain. every single negative feeling was with me as i updated our gulfnews and internet ads, attended to candidates and gave them the tests, and updated the database. needless to say i felt so harassed and so abused yesterday. this ill feeling comes once in a while. when jaya's back from his vacation then i'll have my time of day too but for a month i have to stretch my back each day.

whew! but at the end of the day, i left all my worries and pains in the office where they should be. at the end of the day one has to feel fresh and beautiful as she was when the day started.

* just to show the cute uniform and the cute sandals that go with it



it was one of those many days when i had the "Macbeth" complex. i wasted so much time thinking whether to go to Nida's party or not. it was late and i had to go alone. due to the usual friday traffic my officemates who were supposed to pick me up from my place were not able to come and instead had to take another route to get to destination. it left me only three alternatives: one, to call for taxi and go alone or with lucy and jasmin. two, call friends who could take me to al qusais. and three, not to go to the party at all.

but it would be a sorry event for yessa who made me up, for jasmin who fitted the sandals for me, and for lucy who took out all her scent/fragrances collection for the said occassion. even melani who cheered for yessa's artistic touch would be feeling bad had i decided not to go. so off i went to wonderland.
