SHARJAH MUSEUM OF ISLAMIC CIVILIZATION

Sharjah, UAE - 2016

My love for Sharjah is no secret, but visiting this museum made me love this city even more. It covers everything about the Islamic Civilization in a non-biased way. From inventions, to architecture, fashion, weaponry, to advances in medicine and agriculture, and so much more. 

It's brilliantly organized, and everything is so neat and informative. This wonderful museum is a must visit when you're in Sharjah. One area you better not miss is 'The Dome'. I was so overwhelmed in the best of ways, and could stay there forever.

Thank you, Sharjah.

ANTIQUES MUSEUM

Dubai, UAE - 2016

One of the coolest places I've ever been to. Dina took us to the 'Antiques Museum' in Dubai. It's a ridiculously huge warehouse in Al Qouz. Going through the entire place we had someone with us so we don't get lost because it's designed like a maze. There's everything from furniture, items from around the world, and they do custom work (pins, shirts, caps etc).

WALKING AROUND BUR DUBAI & DEIRA

Dubai, UAE - 2016

On this trip, I got to hangout Reem Falaknaz, Layan Attari, and Layla (Reem's cousin). Reem parked her car in Bastakiya and we started walking. I thought the heat and humidity would ruin this for me, but it was one of my top 5 outings this year. Towards the end of the day, we had good food and played a game where we said words that had the letter ق in them. I don't remember how this started, but we kept playing in the cab and the driver joined us. 

Thank you for the nice tour, food, vibes and laughs, ladies.

NEW CAM DATE - PANORAMA

Abu Dhabi, UAE - 2016

I still haven't found a proper way to document the films I'm using, and I'm so angry I don't know what film roll this is. I bought this camera online ages ago, and completely forgot about it. I only received it a couple of weeks ago and thought it was best to take it out on a date. 

I was expecting something completely different, but I like how these turned out.   

BON GA RESTAURANT

Abu Dhabi, UAE - 2016

When my sister found out that I was going to Musaffah, she asked me to pass by the Korean supermarket to get her some ingredients to make BBQ beef. Since she was awake, she said she'd join in, and we can check out a Korean restaurant right next to the supermarket. I've been to 4 different -exclusively- Korean restaurants, and this is by far the best one I've been to. It's very cozy, and everything taste divine. The owner/manager was very nice, and the staff were sweet. They also sold their Kimchi and other appetizers. We bought these dried anchovies (something we never thought we'd like) that were mixed with some sort of sweetish sauce, and they're just incredible. 

BAHIYA'S ROUNDABOUT LIL MOSQUES

Abu Dhabi, UAE - 2016

Bahiya is the area I live in and there's a lil mosque next to every roundabouts. All of these were taken in the car, to test out the zooming in a new point & shoot (but also because it's too hot to get out of the car)
