What did you do with the long Eid Al Adha weekend? I've been cleaning the house and the files on my PC (and my phone). I actually spend more time in the digital cleanup part, because I tend to look at photos and get stuck there. I'm actually looking at old photos again now. So, the … Continue reading How do you spend the day in paradise?
I must admit, in my years of travel, I've never been so nervous about packing than when the time we were headed to the Maldives. Why? Because there is nothing in the island except for the resort - meaning, there are no grocery stores, malls or convenient stores or pharmacies (although there is an on-island … Continue reading What to pack?

As working parents, my husband and I juggle too many things at the same time so once a year, we hit that point where we tell ourselves we need to get off the rat wheel. We need time to decompress.

There are actually no words. That place is just beautiful, truly heaven on Earth. If you have followed my … Continue reading Where we stayed: The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives
Hello, we just got back from our short vacation from Maldives and Sri Lanka last night. It's funny when vacations end and you find yourself neither here or there. Add jet lag (and piles of laundry) to the equation and you have one really disoriented self. While I am happy to be back home (nothing … Continue reading Back to Dubai!
The blog is not dead. Sorry for the long silence, my family and I were traveling and it was not easy to open the PC and sit down to write (especially with no mouse! God, I am half useless without a mouse). My last post was a little update about the kids. Well, the bored … Continue reading Arriving in paradise that is The Maldives!
Same time NEXT WEEK, I will be dipping my toes in one of the world's most beautiful waters. We will be guests at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi (formerly a Hilton property) in The Maldives to enjoy five glorious days of sun, sand and sea. Oh yes, I had to pinch myself so many times to believe … Continue reading We’re off to The Maldives!
