You know why I love Dubai? Because, Dubai is what you want it to be.
You want to live a peaceful life, you get it,
you want a hectic life you get it!
beach? shopping? heritage? food? culture? nature? night life?
you get all that you need.
why, you even get a boring life if you want one!
And to think, all this is man made! It is just fascinating.
I come from a country, where God saw no limits in his blessings. we have a rich wonderful land, that today sadly is exploited. and NOT to our advantage.
Whereas, Dubai, that was just a desert, not even that rich in oil... is a twinkling wonderland thriving in all that world has to offer made of all that man could think of!
Sniffing history, I strolled through the old spice market untill I reached the creek,which apparently is man made too! Gently rocking my senses alive, the abra carried me across the glimmering creek, outlined by the skylit monsters, to the heritage village where I was mesmerized by their folk dance, architecture and food.
The juxtaposition of untouched heritage with unmatched modernity is indescribable for me right now.
yea, I'm just in awe!
This place is different EVERY TIME I come here!
Btw, Dubai is warm during the day and chilly during evening/ night. so the light material of my dress layered over a chiffon blouse made it very day appropriate. whereas, my subtle bling collar necklace, chanel earrings and cuff bracelets definitely gave it the night time oomph!
Not to mantion, my leggings kept me warm and patent oxfords kept me comfortable throughout my day! :)
I want to shout out a special thanks to Shahid Mohammad for being kind enough to take me around and snap some amazing pics.
