We went away for a few days to beautiful Fujeirah for the Eid holidays last week. Gorgeous beach, loads of sun, mountains and endless amount of fun. But let me tell you folks - outside of Dubai, the other emirates in the UAE are not so welcoming to shorts and tank tops - atleast not outside of the resorts. I wish I could understand the words people were muttering under their breath (and i'm sure out loud as well) when I walked into a grocery store in Fujeirah with my cutest pair of yellow shorts and a v-neck tee. I imagine they were saying "wow, nice legs" or "whoa, that girl has gorgeous hair" or maybe even "i love those shorts on her - wonder where she got them" or "the colours yellow and salmon are surprisingly a great combo"
.. yea, i'll keep dreaming.
Women in their traditional garb were literally covering their children's eyes and men stopped mid-sentence to stare. I have never been more uncomfortable in my life! This is officially the moment I realized I live in a conservative Muslim country. Hope y'all enjoyed the show Fujeirah.
Other than the events that week, we got a new TV and like all customer service in Dubai - this was no different.I can't, I'm over it now...it was from SharafDG #justsayin
The christmas tree is up and the carols are on loop, but we're still decorating
Time's flying right now- can't believe November is almost done! Nothing really significant has happened but I have a lot to look forward to...
The next two weekends are jam packed with Rugby Sevens, Akon and Creamfields and CHRISTMAS! Stay tuned folks.
Enjoy the rest of my bloggity blog for the next little while. xoxo

|Stupid yellow shorts. I still think I look cute at the very least.|
|Ok, so we climbed a whole lot to get to this point and there were snakeholes EVERYWHERE. I'm still surprised we didn't get hissed at by a desert snake.|
