Who would've thought that we have this kind of view in the UAE?
Guess who's back online? Yes, it's me! And it's been a while since I have uploaded something interesting here. If you've been following my updates on IG, you will know how much of a busy bee I am on weekdays. I am still exploring a lot of things in aviation (yes, I've shifted industries but doing the same function) and I guess I will enjoy it here.

How To Get (Legally) HIGH - In Dubai!


And just before I get tons of email to take this post down, let me tell you one thing: IT IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS. First and foremost, Dubai has zero tolerance for illegal drugs - any form of use or distribution of illegal drugs in the UAE is a criminal offense and is punishable by law.

So rather than taking the risk of getting in jail or worst deported, I have listed below my over-the-top (like literally) experiences of how I tasted the Dubai high life without getting caught!


How to Experience the Best of Dubai - On A Budget!

That's me, going around Dubai on a budget.

Okay so I live here, and for me, a budget experience in Dubai is very different to a tourist’s. Heading to friends for dinner certainly takes the sting out of a pricey restaurant cheque, and taking a long drive with grammer friends – in their cars – into the desert or anywhere off the beaten path is an inexpensive way to relax. But for visitors flying into the city, Dubai can appear very expensive indeed. Fear not, there are tons of ways to make the most out of your trip to this magnificent city without breaking the bank, here are my top tips in experiencing Dubai on a budget!

Fly With The Falcons Of Dubai...On A Hot Air Balloon!

Finally gotten over my El Nido, Palawan trip with occasional separation anxiety on my island living in the Philippines because the little miss is an island lady by heart. As soon as I arrived in Dubai last Nov. 28, hustling and grinding continued and you will surely be excited on a few upcoming Dubai posts because the events I went to for the past weeks are waaaay over the top and even ticked of a few of my bucket lists - one of them is riding a hot air balloon.

Eid Al Adha Mubarak everyone! A few weeks back, I have listed a few short trip ideas from Dubai for the long weekend. As flights got a little bit pricey 4 weeks before the holiday, my roomies and I decided to 'stay-cation' instead. I have much to explore in the UAE anyways so I think now is the best time to do a little exploring.
