Next on the list is Dubai's Desert Safari! Yep, I had to experience the ride!!!

Remeber Yanie? My friend who's been my tour guide in Day 1? Yep, she booked me a Desert Safari Tour. And yes, I was accompanied by my great traveler friend Des, with Sy and Ate H.

But, before we went to Desert Safari, I had a trip to Dubai Museum and the Old Dubai Structures. Amazing, how the two worlds are in the same Emirate. Yep. There's a glimpse of the old Dubai.

The next day in Dubai, I agreed to my very good friend and brother who also have a lot on his plate. Quite a busy man, but was able to manage to squeeze me into his schedule.

This remarkable man has done great things following God's lead. He is also one of the reasons I was able to visit Dubai, he processed my VISA to Dubai. According to testimonies of the people around him, he's done wonders in their community. Truly, praise God for the life of this man.

I agreed t attend the service where he also serve as a Pastor. After that, there was a fellowship (salo-salo) of the members of the community. I enjoyed their warm welcome. There is an upcoming event of the church so I also agreed to tag along with them to have their practice in one of the hotels in Dubai.  ...continue reading

One of the motivations I've had in deciding to visit this place is the thought of seeing my friends in Dubai and experiencing the life they have there. Years ago, after graduation, I have heard about the tallest tower in Dubai Burj Dubai or Burj Khalifa. I have since wondered how it looks up close. I have seen photos of my friends being there, going up at its top, and yeah, enjoying the scenery.

I have then started planning the visit. One of the kick off step is to book a ticket. It has always been my personal tradition that, I book flight tickets ahead of time, even months before the trip. And yes, it has always worked for me. Resources get allocated and I was able to make it work, somehow. Although, I too, wonder how I managed it. But, that's not the issue, thing is, Dubai happened last November 2016.  ...continue reading

Maafushi is a bigger Island than Gulhi. It's our second destination island. In this island, you'll be confident that there's a bank, you can buy the stuffs you'd need, and you can choose from several inns and guesthouses. Although, we stayed at one guest house for the whole duration of our stay here in Maafushi.

More than two years ago, I believe, a friend of mine, out of the blue, reconnected with me. He said he's up to something, and he wants me to join the group. I was curious, but I do have my reservations. I went with him in a so called "meet-up" and was introduced to a bunch of crazy beautiful people. Meet-ups were followed by more incidences of get-together. Until so much have been shared and I was educated and learned a lot. There's one thing in that group that has lead me, somehow, to realize this dream. I was affirmed that "I can".

Soon as we arrived in Male', we looked for the beach, and there really was a beach. But I was looking for something serene and relaxing. I planned something out, and first stop, Gulhi!

We are currently in Gulhi, Maldives and we've just been from a family holiday in Singapore. Some people are asking about details of our trip. I wasn't that eager to write a new blog about it since it's my second time in SG, but.....because Mom is with me and the GF and the youngest sis, I will be writing about it now! Read below. 🙂
