Beautiful Hue

The weekend was gloomy and today was no exception all because of the sandstorm. I hope you are all safe, let's avoid rough seas and drive carefully on the roads, hope it will soon clear up and we will see clear blue skies again.

This morning while I was going through some of the pictures I took from the last two weeks of frolicking, I saw our days at the beach flying kites in two different occasions.


The weather was lovely and the wind was high, it was a perfect weather.




I thought I'd share it with you and hope it could brighten up your day too.

The kids were simply happy to be outside and so are we. It was so nice to feel the ocean breeze on our skin and the sand under our feet. We watched in awe as thousands of migratory birds soar high in the sky and we stared to admire the golden hues of the sunset until dusk.




These kites were from Daiso and Dragon Mart, price ranges from 20-50 dirhams depending on the size irregardless of design, the bigger the kite, the longer the string that comes along with it.



I know that photos say a thousand words but still it is nothing compared to be present in time. 



The sandstorm that wrecks havoc this weekend is the first sign of summer. It will soon be on our doorstep so we need to enjoy the cool weather while it last.

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
