** Read on, there’s fun at the end! **
Today marks our 3rd year since we first stepped foot in Dubai. I look back and remember the things we did, the way we were (team of three, roaming clueless in a foreign land) and think we’ve come this far, things will only get better. M and I are still the same – almost – he has lost weight (as if he has more to lose!) because of work. Pristine’s height and hair growth have been impressive. She shot up at least 20 cms in three years, hair is beyond her shoulder blades now (it’s still curly). She also talks a lot now too, even in her sleep.
We are still loving our stay here and will stay here for ” a little more while”.
We’ve lived in the same apartment for three years. While it’s not the ideal place that I would want my family to live, we’re pretty much contented. I mean, most of us are, because clearly, I am NOT. I could live with a small living room, bedrooms and no bath tub but the teeny tiny kitchen is killing me and I’ve struggled with it for three years. I’ve had enough.
All I wanted for Christmas is a big, or at least a decent sized kitchen that’s more than 2 meters wide! You’ll be shocked if I post a photo of my kitchen here. Well, three Christmasses have passed and I’m still juggling in our small kitchen that’s fit for cooking for one person, not family and clearly not for someone like me who loves to cook. I am SO ready to move.
We plan to live here for at least another 3 years so if we’re going to move, it better be good right? We’ve looked for flats around the area and found good ones but had to drop some of them out of our list because of ONE single reason/thing. Like we found one or two with a good kitchen area but then because of this one single reason, we won’t consider living there because it would be just stressful not just for me but for ALL of us. Sounds like a riddle?
Stay with me, this is going to be fun, I promise.
Since it’s our third anniversary here, I’d like to give away something – a prize, a token, a small Dubai-themed package* for someone who can correctly guess the reason why we have to erase a certain apartment in our choice of place to live.
- One person can comment up to three times with different guesses
- This contest is open to everyone, wherever you live!
- If no one guesses correctly even after 3 days, I’ll give a hint then you can comment again. So be sure you’re subscribed to my feed to catch that hint, ok?
Ready? Go hit the comments! I’m excited to see all your guesses (the possibilities are endless) !
* If the winner is from Dubai, I’ll have a Japan-themed small package ready or a 100 dhs certificate from Bur Juman, whatever works for ‘ya! 🙂
