Sharjah Open Beach

We experienced foggy mornings twice last week which only indicates the changing of the season.

This week was a bit humid though. We are happy to welcome this change for we know that the best is yet to come.

WINTER - our favorite season here in the UAE. But before we cover up and add layers to our clothing, let us first enjoy the milder summer weather by hitting the beach. Now is the best time to go swimming without the fear of burning your skin, it is advisable go there early morning or late afternoon.


We took our kids to an open beach in Sharjah two Saturdays ago at around 6 am in the morning. The wind was cool and the water, still warm and calm. Small waves crashing on the shore and were only made because of the boats passing by. An early morning trip to the beach is always a good idea.

Our little Prince is a brave young boy. He wasn't scared of the water at all. Mica was hesitant but couldn't resist the water and joined us.

We stayed an hour and left just before the sun was up. We picked some nice sea shells for Mica's scrapbook and headed home.

Days like this with the family is just incredible.

How to Apply for Children's Residence Visa Under Mother Sponsorship in Dubai 2019

Dubai, 29/09/2019 For expatriate married women living and working in Dubai especially those earning less than 10,000 dirhams salary per month and whose job description is not allowed to apply for visas for their family, sponsoring their children has never been easy until the recent changes in Dubai immigration rules that took effect mid of 2019 this year. The rule now allows any UAE resident (those who have a valid employment visa) male or  FEMALE can now sponsor family members provided that he or she earns a monthly salary of AED 4000 or AED 3000 plus accommodation according to the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship. Back in the day, when I tried to sponsor my husband, my experience was completely different. You can read about it  here . Just this month, a friend of mine applied for her children's visa in Dubai. It was approved, and the visa was issued and stamped on her children's passports. We shared below the documents required and the step-by-step

Sinampalukang Isda (Tilapia/Sea Bream) Pang-alis Umay!

 After Christmas and New Year holidays, do you feel you've had enough of the leftovers? I feel the same way. I needed something to break away from it. The first craving I had was a very Pinoy fish dish.  Sinampalukang isda. Some would think of it as sinigang but it is not sinigang. It is a soup dish of fish in tamarind broth, ginger, chilis, onions, tomatoes, radish leaves or pechay, and of course fish. Okay, it is like sinigang (hahaha). It usually calls for tilapia but I opted for sea bream. It is a completely hearty meal. Of course, to be eaten with hot steaming rice and sawsawan (a mixture of fish sauce and green chili) The original dish calls for fresh raw tamarind but since it is hardly available where I am, I used powdered tamarind. The difference is that fresh raw tamarind gives this dish a thick broth distinct from sinampalukang isda my parents used to cook for us, unlike powdered tamarind. (oh well ex-pat life) So, how to cook it? Ingredients (serves 2) 1 medium-size sea
