Thirty in Dubai

I bid farewell to my twenties and said hello to another chapter of my life. Yes, I am old. But I don’t feel like I am. As the cliche goes : Age is just a number. True! Our age should not define us and limit us from what we want to do. There is no rule that says that people in their 30’s can’t do things the younger people do. My new journey has just begun. And I decided to jump start my journey in Dubai. The rest of the travel destination shall wait for me as I am ready to explore and experience the world. They say 30 is the new 20. I will not argue with that. 😀

In this post, I will be mainly sharing my pictures and show you how much I enjoyed my short stay in Dubai. It might help you plan your itinerary just in case you too would like to visit. Not much information here as I have forgotten the details of the trip ( the cost and how to get there info’s). So for now, enjoy Dubai through my pictures! 🙂

Visiting the Dessert Safari is a must. You should experience the Sand Dunes, of course!


My encounter with a Falcon! Falcons is one of the status symbol for people in Dubai or in the Middle East. The Falcon is the national bird of UAE and is a symbol of force and courage, recognizing the importance of falconry in Arab tradition and culture.

Camel Ride across the dessert! The ride may have been short but it was just the experience I needed. I couldn’t dare ride longer as somehow I felt the camel was tired, or at least it looks like it was.

So that’s how I celebrated life. Ain’t bad, right? 😀



Random Thought: A Little of Doha

They say you have to love what you have. Well, in my case, I have to love where I am.

Where I am right now may not be my first choice to experience being an expat. Admit it, most of us wants to be in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia or somewhere colder ( and poshier) than HOME. But hey, it ain’t bad here at all! Doha is not just all dessert, sand storm, camels ( I’d like to ride one soonest) and extreme weather. It may not be as open as Dubai but Doha still offers entertainment (places to go to and activities to do) that makes your stay worthwhile and helps kill homesickness. Its rich culture makes the place interesting. One just needs to know where to look. It may not be much for some but these places we have been to made us a happy expat.
