What's in a Dream?

I hate waking up in the middle of the night to go to the W.C. I really wanted to continue with my sleep but the urge to go was stronger than my sleepiness. Even while half asleep half awake I was still contemplating wether to go or not to go. In the back of my head its says "I do not want to have urinary track infection just by holding it" so I decided to head to the W. C. with my eyes half shut. Back to bed and I am trying to put my self to sleep but the annoying thing is that all kinds of dream started coming. It keeps coming and I would wake up with each thirty minutes or every hour. It seems that from 2:30 I am no at all sleeping. The last dream I dreamed was... It was in the porch of my late Lolo's house in Malolos with all big and small crabs on the floor. I was with someone I dont remember but we were using a kitchen thong to catch each one and put away. I bravely thong one of the big crabs and went to the kitchen to put it aside on a big red pale. I try to op

Corporate Birthday Celebrations

Today we celebrate the birthday of two of our dear colleague and friend Ehsan (one of our office boy) and Syed (our IT officer). I was in charge of ordering the cakes. I ordered two chocolate cakes since everyone in the office like it. We used to send the drivers to pick up the cakes from the confectionary store although today I have to make a call at Caesars for delivery as we lack of drivers in the office…they are out and busy. I pick up the handset and called Caesars, I don’t have their number so I check it out on the internet. Finally I got it and an Indian male voice answered me. I ask for the flavors they have then I decide, they several chocolate cake flavors. I gave our exact office address and it was delivered on time, 3 o’clock as promised. Two cakes for the cost of AED 170.00 This was not the first time we celebrate birthdays in the office, it becomes a company tradition that we celebrate the birthday of each one of our officemates in the office apart from an extra celebra

Crabbing and Craving

Friends were asking us to join them this coming Friday early morning to go crabbing in Um Al Quwain. They had been there last week and the treasures of the sea are bountiful, they had a full basket of fresh live crabs. When F told me this, I actually jump into conclusion that we are going with them for the crab hunting this weekend. F told me that mama can’t come (I am not allowed to stay up late for some reason) and I felt too upset, how come that I can’t come where all I can think of is to eat crabs and prepare them into different dishes. I am not sure if crabs are good for me this time of the year. Crabs have high mercury content that’s why I have to eat it in moderation. Um Al Quwain is the best place for crab hunting. Most of the tour companies offer crab hunting for tourist in Dubai. You can cook your crabs in many different ways. I always wanted my crabs steamed with little salt and served with vinaigrette. F loves it with squash and string beans in coconut milk with a li

Forgive and Forget
