    To remember or to forget?
    There are things on my mind that I just can't shake off. Some good, some not so good. Some pretty awful. Memories that at times make me smile, at other times they make me angry at myself. That depends mostly on my mood, but lately I feel like there is a "disk full" popup dancing in front of my eyes, and these memories just take a lot of space in my brain. I really don't know how to explain this, but these gymnastics are wearing me out. Today I just wanted to hit "delete" button, and wipe a slate clean. Then again, our experiences (and our memories!) makes us the people we are, shape our characters, empower and enrich our existence. So what should I do with them, then? I am fed up with looking back for answers. I want to experience things without fear of getting hurt, I want to risk and lose my cool without regret. Or maybe it's not about memories and experiences at all? Maybe I am just getting old?

    note to self: ranting about getting old means you're getting old. Stop. Rant.

    In other news, I am THAT close to registering for the ID, but the #*$&%^$ registration number is at home and I need it (of course). So have to wait till next week, when I won't have any time at all for this.

    Remember my "Gone Fishing" post? I actually did go fishing, we sailed all the way around the Palm Jebel Ali and towards the JA port, then out to the sea. Atlantis looks fab. Out of 10 people on the boat I was the only one who didn't get sick, imagine that. And we caught fish which I got to keep as everyone else was too sick to care, hahahaha. Some management team we have.

    Mom is coming here on the 5th of December, I can't wait. Finally someone who will sort the house out! We still have half of our stuff in boxes.

    I don't think I'll be updating this blog anytime soon, I think I have lost interest ... again. Anyways, if you miss me, you know where to find me.

    Buh bay, buh bay now, buh bay!

    Definition of success
    "I like people who have no regrets in life, especially women - whether a big bulk of their life is spent at work, family, travelling or school, as long as they don't whine about 'the things they think they had missed' - I think that's a big success. Women who have acquired vices and successfully kicked them off and discovered new areas in their life, loved and laughed hard, cried for all their worth and still emerged from it all without bitterness - that's my definition of successful life; those who are able to shape their lives and characters instead of having the circumstances dictate theirs... big fat bank account does not hurt of course, but it's icing on the cake, not the cake itself - unless it is really only money that you want in life - that's kewl too - and of course if you get a Nobel prize and stomp your foot in Louboutin shoes, that's also pretty awesome."

    Qatar ties

    Qatar embassy is being established in Cyprus. Woot!

    They are renting one of our properties for the embassy premises.

    There is simply no escape from those Qataris :P
