Wishlist : Attractions of UAE

I was born in this wonderful city. Now I'm back here through matrimony. But I never got to experience this amazing place like anyone should. Scores of people pour in from everywhere to see and experience this city and its shameful that being residents we haven't ventured out anywhere in this city.

So here are a few places and activities  I would like to check off while I'm here:

  1. Dhow cruise  ( I know, don't judge me)
  2. Desert Safari/ Camping  ( Now, you see what I mean?)

  4. Ski Dubai ( Penguin Encounter)

Im just being overly ambitious here. But then there is this saying, " Only if you dream as high as a hill , will you achieve as high as a heap"

P. S : I suddenly feel I need an Insta cam - so that I can click and paste then and there into my journals!

Wee Problem

My 13 month old got circumcised today.

Babies......  I wish I could be like that! He must have gone through a lot of pain, who knows? He can never tell. But wasn't he more than excited about having Mum and Dad being with him all day or what!

The whole surgery went by very smoothly. I always believe that my baby is so blessed to receive such wonderful service from his Doctors.

The annoying part came after the surgery though , once we got home.
Everyone wants to see how it was done. Then they feel sick after seeing. Now they feel it was all a very bad idea.  " They circumcised like they would for Muslims!! Did they have to chop off so much skin? "...... And thus came on the colossally idiotic plus nervous comments .

I hope they all see some sense and appreciate that it was done for my baby's own good!
