Souk Madinat in Dubai – A Little Arabian Town

Souk Madinat in Dubai is a built like a little Arabian town, a clean version of a town. Don’t be intimidated by it’s grand entrance, fort-like walls and detailed arches. They’re designed to make you feel that you’re in a different realm in the Middle East. And once you step inside, you’ll forget the world […]

Burj Al-Arab Dubai.

Burj Al Arab Dubai is Not a Seven-Star Hotel

Burj Al Arab Dubai is not a certified seven-star hotel in the world. You read the title right. No one ever rated it as such. In fact, its website doesn’t boast itself as “the only seven star hotel in the world.” No, they don’t use that, too, in their advertising anywhere. Also, the hotel doesn’t rate […]

Sunset in the Desert (Dubai, United Arab Emirates).

Photos: Desert Sunset

Desert sunset is breathtakingly magical. Behind the sea of sand, the orange ball goes down like a ball of fire, leaving an impression that makes us all sigh, hoping to see again the next day. As a sunset whore, I made sure that I had less time taking pictures than watching the setting sun itself. […]

Sunset in Dubai / Dubai Skyline.

Dubai Sunset

This is not really Dubai sunset at its best but these photos were taken close to sunset. I took these while on a bus on our way to a desert sunset safari somewhere 45 minutes drive from the city. Since my camera isn’t that great in moving situations, I had to filter the colours of […]

Arabian Nights in the desert outside Dubai.

Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights is, perhaps, associated with talented belly dancers showing off their dancing prowess to the delight of the crowd (mostly men?) while breathing their hookah in and out. Throw it with an rhythm of the inviting arabic music and the air is filled with amorous desires for mid-eastern beauties with hypnotizing, tantalizing gazes that would stick […]

Burj Khalifa is the building with most floors!

Burj Khalifa Facade- The Tallest Building in the World

Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the world’s tallest building. Or tower. From a distance, it looks like a futuristic spire that goes or points nowhere but up. It is Dubai’s most-famous structure, eclipsing Burj Al-Arab, the world’s first 7-star hotel. It is Dubai’s centre of attraction or the city’s “apple of the eye.” It is the most […]

Ski Dubai - Your Fake Winter Wonderland in the Desert.

Ski Dubai – Your Winter Wonderland in the Desert

Ski Dubai is a proof that in UAE, everything is possible in the desert. It’s the first indoor skiing park in the Middle East where it’s associated with unforgiving heat of the desert. It is nestled inside the Mall of the Emirates, one of the largest shopping malls in the world. Ski Dubai is your […]

Jabel Hafeet – The Snake Mountain in Al Ain

I’m gonna call Jabel Hafeet (also known as Jabel Jafeet or Jabal Hafeet) as the Snake Mountain. No, don’t get me wrong. The mountain doesn’t have millions of snakes but there should be some lurking somewhere. I call it as such because when you’re driving up to the top, you’re literally snaking your way up, […]

Dubai at Night

Dubai at Night

My guest photographer is CAR. No, its not some fancy name of something nor the thingy that moves or brings us to far distances. Its the combined initials of a doting single mom who has a gorgeous daughtah and a young heartthrob son (Im a fan!). Oh, well, like me, she’s a camwhore–that means, we […]
