No, I’m not Ms. Dubai. I just miss it. 😛 And I think I need to take a quick break from talking about Nepal (will probably continue tomorrow :P).
Well, I used to live there. My plane arrived on June 24, 2009 and 3 years 5 months 3 weeks later, I left. So even if I only say that “I liked living there because it’s… convenient”, I know deep within, there’s so much more.
Enough with the drama. Huhuhu
Here are a few random stuff I had back when I was still living there.
1. Directions to my old flat, October 2010.
A very detailed map I drew off MS Paint in roughly 15 minutes for a friend that I met in Barcelona (2010) who’s crashing at our place for a few days for a “vacation from a vacation.” Yes dear friends, if you’re not psycho, I’d let you crash in too. 🙂
It was funny because I told her that it is impossible for her to get lost with my map. Well, had I added an extra detail, she might already.
2. Jumeirah Beach and the Burj Al Arab, May 2011.
As viewed from a restaurant called Pierchic in Madinat Jumeirah.
A friend of mine had a birthday celebration in Pierchic. The whole trip to the restaurant is quite an attraction itself (both the hotel and the restaurant) which I hope to share eventually, once I get to that part of the post. Please, stay with me!
3. The formerly known as Burj Dubai, which is now known as Burl Khalifa, December 2009.
At that time, it was less than a month before it’s inauguration… And then they changed it’s name! I think it’s for His Royal Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi and president of UAE. I’m not sure if the “rumors” as to the reason why were true. Anyway, what do I know?

4. MALE TOILET without the letter “i”: MALE TO LET, July 2010.
Any takers? Not me.
I can’t remember where I took this photo exactly. Probably in the Mall of the Emirates (by process of elimination). I only took notice when a friend of mine pointed it out, asking me if I needed a man, because there’s a “male to let.” It took me a few seconds to get it.
5. Something yummy from a restaurant called “Social House” in Dubai Mall, October 2010.
I deeply apologize if I can’t remember what it’s called. You see, I eat like a hard laborer and I eat almost anything! I just know this one’s really yummy, and even better because one of my bff’s bought this for us. 😀
Can I call this Random Fridays? 🙂
***I wish that… May this post also guide you to some of the “must see” places in Dubai. 😉
