Micaela's First Holy Communion

One more thing I like about Dubai and that one thing that is special apart from the millions things I like about this country is the liberty to practice religion. As a practicing Catholic I am glad that we have our own churches here in the UAE and the people are allowed to practice their religion inside the church premises. There are a couple of churches in Dubai that I know, one is St. Francis de Assisi in Jebel Ali and St. Mary's Catholic Church in Oud Metha where we usually attend the holy mass, it is also where Prince was baptized . There is another church in Sharjah, the St. Michael's Church, it is where me and Ferald exchanged vows and where our first child Micaela was baptized. Micaela recently received her first holy communion at St. Mary's Church after two continuous years of attending her catechism classes. Unlike in my home country, it is not included in her school program so we have to enroll her in a separate catechism class in Dubai. Mica and her fr

Pizza Making Birthday Party

We were invited to a pizza making birthday party a few months ago. Micaela's classmate was celebrating her 10th birthday and what a lovely idea to do a pizza making birthday party for the birthday girl. A long table was arranged at the middle of the party hall. The children lined themselves up next to the tables, they are all very excited about the activity, my son was a little hesitant and unsure of what's happening and refused to put on the plastic apron.

After a short introduction about pizza, the kids were told to pat the dough using their palm and then they were told to put their pointer and middle finger together and use it to push the dough further to the side of the pan. Pizza sauce was poured into each pizza dough an

Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience in Abu Dhabi

Couple of days before I won the best mood board of a concert outfit , my husband and I were talking about missing our road trips and long drives to other Emirates of the UAE. Then suddenly I got lucky :D, the people of SIVVI sent us two tickets to the Justin Timberlake concert in Abu Dhabi Du Arena International DJ Freestyle pump up the music an hour to the concert. The crowd was shouting Justin's name by nine pm. He came down from the stairs with spotlights on him accompanied by the shrieks of the crowd. The concert venue was full and the approximate number of people was at 20, 000 Justin's performance was electrifying and engaging, all through out the concert, he was asking the crowd to sing parts of the song with him. His music and songs are all familiar since we've been listening to it over and over again on the radio almost every morning on the way to work. I love the songs Cry Me A River, What Goes Around Comes Around, Summer Love from his 2002 album J
