Halloween Costumes - Dia de Los Muertos

No comments:
Dia de Los Muertos

This is a post-Halloween blog but I'll put it up anyway for keepsake.

I'm just glad I did it. To put that face paint on and enjoyed the celebration coz everyone came to the party.

Halloween Costumes

A few days to our Fright Night with PONG, I was still hesitant whether I'd put that Dia de Los Muertos makeup on. I've been looking for ideas on Pinterest for so many days. There were so much beautiful and extravagant makeup and costumes, it is so tempting to splurge.

We bought the props, masks, face paint, and yet I wasn't hundred percent sure I'm going to do it just because it was so inconvenient to clean up the makeup after. But I did it anyway in the end. This is but a rare occasion. We are not big on Halloween parties in our country as we have a different tradition to commemorate our dearly departed. 

Ate did the work for me even though I got her so pissed off with my nagging, she put on a smile and finished my look. Thank you ate, love you lots. 



It was yet another successful PONG event in the desert.

Choosing a Ball Gown for Desert Rose Parade

Blue Satin Gown

Out of probably 20+ gowns we tried, she only liked one. A simple blue satin gown. I was hoping she would want something more lavish. Although we were thrifting since it is going to be a one-time use, there are many nice gowns to choose from at the thrift shop. Borrowing was another option but we found it difficult due to size constraints. The blue gown cost 65 dirhams only. Not bad for the price but design-wise, it was not good enough for me. I was actually hoping she would choose the green one as it has a nicer cut but nope, my persuasion was in vain.

It's been eighteen long years but it still feels like yesterday since we got married. That's long if you would think about it and yes our wish is to forever. Cheese! Haha!

Having been able to raise our own family here in the UAE (with its ups and downs) and having survived covid last year, was for me, something worth celebrating.

Khorfakkan, UAE's Hidden Gem

No comments:

Khorfakkan has grown popular in the last couple of years. Thanks to the Sharjah government's initiative to revive and redevelop this unique part of the city, we have new places to explore.

Khorfakkan means “Creek of Two Jaws”, is an enclave of Sharjah, tucked into the emirate of Fujairah. It centers on Khorfakkan Bay, home to the curved Khorfakkan Beach and a deep-sea port.


If you want to get the most of Khorfakkan, I suggest dedicating a full day or two to it.

Your Khorfakkan itinerary sightseeing must include Shees Park, Wadi Sheesh, Rafisa Dam, Al Miqsar Village, Al Rabi Tower (Al Rabi Hiking is optional, or do it the next/another day), Khorfakkan Park & Open Beach, Boat Trip to Shark Island, Khorfakkan Waterfall, Khorfakkan Amphitheater and Khorfakkan Fish Market. There is so much to see and do in this not so sleepy town. You wouldn't regret seeing Khorfakkan. The best time to go is from November to March when the weather is good.

Highest View Lounge For A Romantic Pre-Valentine Dinner l Gevora Hotel Dubai

No comments:

Gevora Hotel Dubai holds the Guinness World Record title of the Tallest Hotel In The World. With the tallest title comes the Highest View Lounge, the highest restaurant in the Middle East situated at 280m from the ground with 360-degree views of the Dubai skyline. It is at HC Level or the 75th floor.

Ferald surprised me with a pre-Valentine dinner date at this restaurant last Thursday. Trying something new, something quite fancy this time. A welcome change from the usual daily errand dates we used to make. If you get what I mean. (hahaha)

It was a lovely night, all of Dubai was twinkling. It was an incredible view. A bit chilly since we are only in February but I am not complaining. It was actually great up there and since we were dressed for the occasion, we didn't need to ask for a blanket but if you ever need it, it is provided. All you need is to ask.
