Begin Again Beta Version (Hello 2015!)

Warning:  this is not a movie review. A few more hours we will all begin another year. Am I going to celebrate? Absolutely. Why? I love fireworks. Period.

I don’t want to go UBER sentimental on how my 2014 went, trust me it has never been this bizarre. I don’t want to over analyze things either, go back and reflect on what happened each and every single day of the past year, when all things have already been said and done. Lessons learned on wanting more and giving back. On pleasing people. On putting yourself first. Blahblahblahblah.

Christmas In Dubai 2014

Christmas in Dubai

Just a quick post to greet everyone a very Happy Christmas! Been here in Dubai since December last year and it's my second time celebrating the yuletide seasons in UAE. I missed my family and friends in the Philippines but my current roomies made Dubai a little bit close to home.

DIY - Recycling Chocolates

Chocolate Leftovers

If there's something that I should be excited about Christmas, it's the sweets. I told a good friend earlier that I don't celebrate the festivity, not that I'm a Grinch but there's something about the season that makes me feel really sad. Maybe it's the weather being cold and freezing, I really don't know. I just sometimes don't see the point of celebrating it and so I stopped few years ago.

But every time I see beautiful Christmas lights around me and think about how many packs of chocolates I will be receiving this year, my heart jumps with joy. CHOCOLATES MAN! No one can ever be depressed with a handful of yummy chocolates. Really.

Bottled Salt Water - Review for Yassat Gloria Hotel

Yassat Gloria Hotel Review

I worked in the travel industry for roughly 2 years and recommended Yassat Gloria Hotel Apartment  to my colleague because the location and facility seems to be perfect if you're in Dubai - along SZR and very near Dubai internet City Metro station. Price sure is way affordable compared to other deluxe hotel apartments but to my surprise, the service is also way below standards.

How Far Can Your Fifty Dirhams Go?

When people say Dubai, top-of-the-mind words will be luxe and glamour, shopping and gold, Ferraris and parties, and the list goes on. I've been here for almost a year now and trust me, it's not always like that.
