Loving Abu Dhabi

The F1 (Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix) race will start 2 hours from now and Abu Dhabi is all fired up.

I need good lenses πŸ˜‰

Tickets are sold out for today’s finale and if you didn’t get one don’t fret, Β you can still enjoy Abu Dhabi……

Such a lovely place.
Amazing architecture. Here beauty transcends religion.
Best Korean restaurant in town!
The 24K Gold Cappucino, a must try.
Lots of vintage finds here.

On Being Original And Unique

So I came up with an idea, a brilliant one I believe and I start googling to back it up.

And the minute Β I clicked the “search” button I was flooded with if not the exact same idea, something much better.

But wait I haven’t clicked “image” yet.

Then there’s youtube, need I say more?

Reality is with the kind of technology we now have and the way we exchange and handle even the tiniest information, it’s hard to make a claim on something that is natural, obvious or given…how can I say

this quote is mine

this pattern is mine

this title is mine

this photo is mine

This thought came to me while waiting for someone in Marina (I got inspired); I’ll be posting this maybe day after tomorrow (today is Tuesday October 16th–it took me a while). Β I am 101% sure that if I google, someone out there has written something in the same context years back.

I breathe the same air as everyone else and best I can do is to just keep on doing what I love to do. Β Be it penning down my own crazy quotes, crocheting here and there, writing every now and then, or taking not so professional shots of sightings that in my eyes are breathtaking.

I wantΒ to believe that I was born not to please but to share.

Marina Walk

The wind brought me here last night by chance,

the setting is so perfect I didn’t mind walking alone.

Harbour lights and luxury yachts moored nearby.

Friendly people doing casual walks and kids so free and giggly.

Soft music playing here and there…it’s something good but not Wael’s.

And yes that fruity sheesha Β aroma

mixed with the salty scent Β of a gentle breeze that brought me here.

Marina. Marina.

“Winter Is Coming”

Scheduled to premier on March 31, 2013, Game of Thrones season 3 is quite a long wait but definitely worth it I am certain. Β While waiting Β I am keen on experimenting with the following projects:

1. Crochet my way around- do some really nice pieces and sell it online

2. Bling it on- I have a good source for chic fashion accessories that I want to sell online

3. Comfy wedges- bought a few samples of the most comfortable wedges straight from the factory and yes I want to sell them online

4. For the not so skinny- just made a good deal with an importer who is willing to supply trendy loose clothes that I can sell online

Think..think…….anyways, yes “winter is coming” and I just finished this snood for my daughter Rain. Β She loves the color blue and the yarn ball I got has all shades. =)
