That law of attraction moment

Ramadan is almost coming to an end and I thought – wouldn’t it be nice to go to Atlantis’ Asateer tent for Iftar? For those of you who don’t know, Asateer is a spectacular Ramadan tent that looks simply magical. It’ s like you’re transported to a different world – of beautiful Arabesque colors and decors, lavish food and entertainment.

We had a chance to go there last year because I won an Iftar dinner voucher from the Foodiva blog. However, we arrived late and wasn’t able to enjoy the food and the place because the staff were already preparing the place for Suhoor (meal before Muslims start their fast at the break of dawn).

So last night while lying down with the baby, phone in hand, I thought: I’d really like to go to Asateer again! But it is expensive and since there weren’t any contests I joined to win, I decided to just sleep. But just before putting the phone down, I checked my email around 11:30 pm.


The email started with:

My name is S** and I’m a social rep for *******  Middle East here in Dubai.  I’m emailing you to let you know how much I love your blog, Sandier Pastures, and I wanted to extend an invitation to you for Wednesday evening as our special guest.

I’ve been an avid reader of your blog for quite some time and I’m happy to say it actually helped in my decision to move to Dubai from New York City.

Because your posts are such an awesome mix of adventures both in and out of Dubai – it made me think you should be invited to the Suhoor dinner at the Asateer tent in Atlantis.


I’m a huge believer of the Law of Attraction – you know, you attract into your life whatever you think about.  Your dominant thoughts will find a way to manifest. It could only be this and only this. Otherwise, who gets lovely surprises like this at midnight??


  1. Wow! sounds wonderful. I love the tent, went this year for the first time when brother was visiting and we had a great time. I do think Suhoor is a better option as you’ve got more time to enjoy the great ambience and ofcourse the food. Shisha smoke is a bit of a problem but the overall experience is just fabulous.

    Hope you had a great time 🙂



  2. Hello Grace, I’m also a huge believer of the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction works without fail, but reflects our dominant and most practiced thoughts. We can’t spend 5 minutes on a new thought and 23 hours and 55 minutes thinking the old thoughts and have anything change. We must also understand that the Universe works at its own speed. Although instant manifestation may sometimes happen, our desire will manifest in the universe’s timeframe rather than ours! It could even be that the universe knows that we are not yet ready to receive our desire.
