Happy New Year 2020

OMG! I can’t believe it’s already 2020. This is insane!!!!!!

Happy New Year Guys

2019 had it’s ups and downs. The down part was that some of my family and friends moved abroad and left the U.A.E for good. Other than that, Tim and I had a wonderful year together. We managed to travel to Philippines, Beirut, Taiwan, Indonesia and Ethiopia.

Here are the 2019 recaps:-

One of the highlights of 2019 is that I started a new job in Abu Dhabi. It isn’t my dream job and it isn’t my favourite but it does pay the bills.

I am no ‘New Years Resolution’ type of girl because it never works but I did write a few things in my journal that I would like to focus on.

Here is my “New Years Resolution” list and I will keep you updated on my blog, Instagram and Twitter.

  • Read more books.
  • Attempt to read books in other languages such as Arabic, Spanish and Tagalog.
  • Save money. (laughing inside)
  • Work hard to get closer to achieving the bigger goals.
  • Sign up for a writing class.
  • Blog more.

So far this is what I would like to achieve or “try” to achieve hehe! Actually there are few events happening in 2020 which I’m looking forward to.

  1. Expo 2020
  2. Our condo handover.
  3. Whatever comes in the way. 🙂


Anyway I would like to wish you a wonderful 2020 and may it be a prosper year for you all. 



December 2019 Recap

Honestly, I haven’t blogged at all. I decided not to be active on social media but I couldn’t resist Instagram lol. I wrote a few drafts of our trip in Ethiopia but other than that I really did not work hard.

I have a love hate relationship with the month of December. I love it because it has UAE National Day (Public Holiday), My Birthday, Brothers Birthday, Friends Birthdays, My Dads  Birthday, Christmas and New Years but then I hate December for the same reasons.

So here is a quick recap of what happened in December.

Destinations I’ve visited

  • United Arab Emirates

Highlights of the month

  • I accidentally ate bees in Ethiopia.
  • I had a quiet birthday at home. I turned 31.
