    My mom is in Dubai for the holiday season, and we explore the city whenever I have free time, and on the weekends. I finally downloaded some pics here. You can see my house, too! And also the new Atlantis Hotel with some pix from the Lost Chambers (with all the fish!), Dubai mall, Burj Al Arab and areas near my house - Festival Centre and Uptown Mirdiff. Enjoy!

    All I want for Christmas... UPDATED!

    And so I replace the sad with the festive, and announce my wish list for this Xmas :)

    1. Nokia E66. I got it right this time. I got this a bit earlier, for my nameday, and I love it love it love it!!My last few were a bit of hit and miss (the last one mostly miss). I adore all those Nokia shortcuts I know so well! Can't live without my new toy.
    2. A VIP ticket to Doha men's tennis tournament! Yay!
      I can't go there even if I get a ticket, so why ask??Ugh ugh ugh...
    3. A box of Marqués de Cáceres gran reserva.
    4. Nice potted plants for my patio.
    5. Chanel Eau Première :) - Scratch that. I got a sample, wore it for a couple of days, and meh, in about 2-3 hours it turns into soapy bathroom smell! Delicious, but soapy nevertheless.
    6. So, replacing the entries above, welcome my new addition to the wish list - 24 Faubourg by Hermes! ;-) And since I am taking three entries out, I would throw in perfume, body cream AND shower gel!

    And so I leave you, my readers, with best wishes for a festive season, and hopes that the crisis hasn't reached your doorstep. Have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
