Dubai Parasailing at Habtoor

I am someone who's tired of doing the same old routine all the time and feels ready for a new adventure. The moment ate Roxanne ask me to come, I didn't have any second thoughts in saying YES! We went parasailing last Saturday at Nautica Watersports - Habtoor Hotel and Spa together with my mom's colleagues/friends and yes I became their friend too hehe. It was totally fun experience and to be honest I didn't feel any  scary moment (too bragyy) haha. Too bad I don't have go pro to document how its like being held so up in the sky.

Its another check from my bucket list BTW, I'm excited to make a new one since 2015 is coming very soon and of course it should be achievable in a year. And I'm planning to make a Bucket list Scrapbook so that I can see visually the things I've done.

Coffee Thursday

I was thinking of something new to write in my online diary and I came up with the “Coffee Thursday” (I like coffee, btw if you didn't know) where I go to coffee shops and just enjoy a cup and plate of goodness by myself for like 20 minutes or so whenever feel like leaving.

blueberry muffin + toffee nut latte

Last Thursday I went to Starbucks since my work ends at 2 pm every Thursday. I was really bored at that time and I think I needed a moment alone. In my hometown, I don’t usually do the “alone time” because people see you as a loner and no friends. And I am used to be with by somebody/someone wherever I go out. The good thing living in other country, you get to go places alone without thinking what others think.

I was just reading the Paulo Coelho book entitle The Winner Stands Alone I never finished it actually, it’s almost 2 months in my hands then Instagraming and chatting, since the people here are really not into wifi (they prefer cellular data) I never have the guts to ask for the wifi password kasi nakakahiya naman that’s why I settled with my very slow cellular data (booooo).

My Fifteen Songs on Repeat

My dad always reminds me that whenever I feel sad or I’m not in my mood (yes! I’m a moody type of person) I should always listen to my favourite songs (I have zillions of favourite songs and it changes from time to time). Music really can change your mood.  Before I go to sleep I got to listen on the songs I listed below, 15 to be exact. It’s the routine I’m doing for quite some time now aside from reading books or writing random things (if you know me I like writing in a cute notebook and write whatever I feel like to write a.k.a diary). Sometimes my ears are so sore using headphones and I have the lyrics on my phone so that I can sing along haha and a playlist so that I don’t have to skip the songs that I don’t feel like listening at the moment. BTW, the photos were taken at Dubai Festival City weeks ago.

1. Break free -  Ariana Grande

2. Best Mistakes -  Ariana Grande
(I became Ariana Grande’s fan lately)

3. Blank Spaces - Taylor Swift

4. Maps - Maroon 5

5. Rather Be - Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne

6. Stay with Me - Sam Smith

7. New Flame – Chris Brown ft Usher and Rick Ross

Change is Good

I want to expand my style and able to dress accordingly with my age and with my work. It’s hard when I have my own idea of style while everybody has their own as well. I don’t want to transform in a drastic way, I want it slowly because my goal is just to expand and experiment my choice of clothes. I don’t like the idea of changing for the sake of change because sometimes it will not fit me or doesn’t make me look good as I wanted it to be, it’s like I am a total stranger of my own self and I don’t want that to happen. Right now, I’m in a stage where I’m figuring out how to transform myself to a better me, better style and better taste of clothes.

So much with the change thing and right now as you can see, it’s the old me, always sticking to what is comfortable and feeling pretty with my clothes. Always go for your style, fashion trends is just always there to help you enhance your style. Just remember to be you, be comfortable and feel pretty in every single day.

Gold Souq

It's the world's biggest gold ring. 

It was a hot afternoon in trying the Abra (water taxi) and with a climate like here, sunglasses is a must but in my case I didn't bring any sunglasses at all or even something to wipe my sweat off. I (but it’s “we” my mom and a bunch of friends) went to Gold Souq, It’s a place of different  stores selling gold. You can reach Gold Souq by riding a bus or any land transportation but if you like something new and a little adventure, you should try the Abra. It’s the second time I went here and still I’m fully amazed of all the gold’s that I can see. If you want watch, belt, necklace, ring even clothes name it and its there, the thing is it’s made out of real gold. Watching every piece of the shiny yellowish thing was such a horror. It was really a jaw-dropper. It’s also considered as a tourist spot in Dubai, a lot of tourist went there actually, I've seen a lot of Korean/Chinese/Japanese (not sure but either of the three) people there. It’s easy to remember when you drop by in Dubai.
