FRIENDSHIP GOALS

Finally, summer is about to end.  While the Starks from Game of thrones prepared for the winter with warning and vigilance, for us, it is the most anticipated season of the time.

Since the weather in UAE is starting to get cooler especially at night with less humidity, the gang decided to have our first change season outdoor activity away from home.

We headed to Umm Al-Quwain open beach which is perfect for a night-time barbecue, crabbing, swimming and storytelling with friends.

 

Such a wonderful feeling to just lay on the sand, thinking nothing else for a while.

Beachside around 8:00 in the morning. No one was able to meet the sunrise.

 

This little guy woke up before us and enjoying most of his time walking, swimming and playing in the sand.

 

Happiness is walking on the beach.

 

 

If you were stung by a Jellyfish, I’d totally pee on you.

 

 Relationship goal.

 

Clear your mind of CAN’T.

Be your own kind of beautiful.

If you don’t drink how will your friends know you love them at 2:00 am?

You don’t need too many people to be happy just a few real ones who appreciate you for who you are.

FOREVER HAS NO END

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend.

Someone who changes your life just by being part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop. Someone who makes you believe that something is really good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.

When you’re down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Someone who changes your life just by being part of it.

Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows.  If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay.

Those are forever friendship.

If you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend and forever has no end.”

SEOUL GARDEN DUBAI

This is not a paid advertisement.

If happens you are in Dubai and you want to go to an authentic Korean restaurant, well,  I recommend this place, Seoul Garden Dubai Restaurant. It was clean, with the decent price, the Korean foods are lovely and the taste was unexpectedly better.

The serving is huge which is good for sharing, the ambiance is quiet and there is a room for privacy.  You may choose to sit on a chair or experience sitting on the floor in partitioned rooms too.

AJMAN, UAE

Ajman is the smallest of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates. It’s located on the Arabian Gulf coast of the northern part of the UAE. Approximately 95% of the population of the Emirate resides in the city of Ajman, possibly because it’s away from the hustle and bustle of the larger Emirates like Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Ajman’s quite scenery

It was 39 °C with 53% humidity.

Ajman is near to the ports of neighboring Emirates. This was taken from the Fish Market.

We booked Ewan Tower Hotel Apartment which was more affordable. What I liked in this 3-star hotel is the huge space in the living room, good enough if you are in a big group and for a party held. I think the room is sound proof too, at least no one was complaining when we are loud. It was a very comfortable place to stay.

And of course, everything will be memorable if you spend the day with good friends.

Since the temperature of that day was super hot, we decided to stay only at the hotel. But in case, if you want to visit Ajman, here are the fun things to do and best places to go.

  1. Ajman Museum
  2. Ajman Dhow Building Yard
  3. Beaches
  4. Mowaihat archaeological site

  6. Sheikh Zayed Mosque Ajman
  7. The forts and Castle
  8. Corniche
  9. Ajman City Centre

Be Proud Of Who You Are

Photo by: Badong

Come with no wrapping or pretty pink bows.
I am who I am from my head to my toes.

I tend to get loud when speaking my mind.
Even a little crazy some of the time.

I’m not a size 5 and don’t care to be.
You can be you and I can be me.

I try to stay strong when pain knocks me down.
And the times that I cry is when no one’s around.

To err is human or so that’s what they say.
Well, tell me who’s perfect anyway.

AGE DOESN’T MATTER

img_3315

This picture that I posted to my Facebook created a little discussion within our group. Well, my father also has spoken about my short-short. I'm in the middle with these two young and vibrant girls.  I think I am 15 years older than them, to be exact.

There are some people who are bitter enough to think that we should belong to a group based on our age, which I think is really nonsense. I believe, if you don’t have the list of friends that are older and younger than you, then you’ll be missing something good in this life.

Well, I have friends who are older and younger than me.  I have an oldie, but goodie and young, but lots of fun. Oldies are full of experiences and bring certain wisdom to me while the youngsters offer involvement in the current situations and create new ideas, plus, they will release your energy, bring you to life that you have almost forgotten.

So, I don't see any problems with this, having “all sorts of people" give me balance. I enjoyed being with them because I always have the liberty to learn something vast and new. I don't care if some people will criticize me that I am "trying"to be young, what the heck! Don't break the fun, yo!

And I'm proud of my age too because God gave me this long to live.  And to my basher, please don't think you are younger than me, I can still be able to wear my "short-short" than you.

I am 38 years old but young at heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHOUT TO HEAVEN

On the road again, going places that I’ve never been. Seeing things that I may never see again. Go rest high on that mountain, go and shout to heaven, thank you Lord, your work on earth is miraculously done.
