1) VISIT THE BURJ KHALIFA:

The Burj Khalifa- the worlds tallest building is a sight worth seeing for. At night when the Burj comes to life with the various embellishments in the form of lights is a mesmerizing sight. You can even go to the top of the Burj to view the wonderful Dubai skyline. At the base of this huge tower lies a fountain where every hour different genres of music is played and the fountain comes to life, dancing to the rhythm of the song.

2) VISIT THE DUBAI MALL:

Adjacent to the Burj is THE DUBAI MALL – the worlds largest mall – which you can’t explore possibly in a day. It requires at least a week. Really!!! For shopaholics ‘like me’ it was heaven on earth. Continue reading

What is Feminism?

What is Feminism?

“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.” – Pat Robertson famously said this in the 90s.

5 things that you face when you move into a big city

It’s strange to leave the comfort of your home and step into an unknown world. At the same time it’s exciting and adventureous, and we can’t wait to explore this undiscovered world that is buzzing with enthraling activities all around. That’s how we feel when we enter a big city, probably the capital, the centre of business activities, maybe the crossroads of social classes. From a city that had two malls to a capital that boasts infinite number of shopping centers; its scary in an amazing way.

So here are 5 things that are different about a big city from your hometown. You might move here to study or to work, we are sure you will face these!

Mistakes.

JOINT POST TIME:

WHAT CAUSES THE MOST PAIN: THE MISTAKE OR THE CRITICISM FOR THE MISTAKE?

As I dwell on the depth of the above statement many thoughts come reeling into my mind. ‘MISTAKE’ – a word that carries a lot of weight in our own lives .Everybody makes mistake isn’t it? Mistakes may be small or huge,  it is the realization of that mistake that matters the most. Some can easily accept their mistakes while some dwell on it for too long…

I feel that even if you are accepting your mistakes it is big achievement . Really! In my opinion accepting your mistake takes a lot of guts . He/She may get a lot of criticism for their mistakes but trust me if hadn’t made  a few mistakes in your life you may be nowhere cause this thing known as ‘mistake’ not only makes you realize that if had not made them you wouldn’t be where you are now.

Only in Dubai, what?

Today I’m going to tell you all about a very bizarre ice cream. Yes! Who doesn’t love ice cream? But wait, because this ice cream will cost you a fortune.
It’s not your ordinary ice cream, it’s a $816 scoop of ice cream. You read the correctly, a $816 scoop. Dubai’s Scoopi Café has launched a $816 scoop of Black Diamond flavor ice cream, which contains the world’s most expensive Iranian saffron, black Italian truffle and 23-carat edible gold. The ice cream comes in a Versace bowl and spoon, which the customer gets to keep. Wow.
I know it’s unbelievable, I couldn’t just my own hands while typing this post. But it’s true.
So if you’ve got money in your hands, that you’ll really like to blow (do not ask me why I just wrote that. No more Bieber references! #sorrynotsorry) then go on!
But, you should know that it isn’t certainly the world’s most expensive ice cream.

#DubaiDiaries: Part 1.

Dubai_3050265k

Hot, glamorous and elegant were a few words that came into my mind as i set foot in Dubai. Being fascinated will be an understatement. I was in awe as i watched the city go by me, people bustling, sexy cars around each corner on the way to my Hotel apartment – The Golden sands.

One of the few reasons  of my visit to Dubai was not only exploring the culture and touring spots but to visit a few of my relatives who are currently residing there. My uncle who trained young aspiring pilots was an immense help to us To say that this trip although a bit short consisting of 5 days was fantastic would be an understatement . I truly enjoyed my stay. Continue reading

#Travel: Rolling in comfort on a Budget.

unnamed

While many of us love to travel we also know that it comes with a heavy expense. We all love to travel to different places and experience different cultures. Unfortunately most of us have limited income therefore in order to make our travel comfortable and at the same time affordable we need to set a budget. After all travelling on a budget is all about playing your cards right. 

ACCOMMODATION: While booking for your accommodations in a country always keep in mind that while hotels can get expensive, they are luxurious , although renting an apartment or staying at a B&B is always cheaper.
– Booking a hotel/apartment near the city centre is always expensive but I feel that it is worth it as all the main points of attraction are within a few kilometres of your reach thus you can cover more touring spots within a short span of time.
– Always keep in mind the fact that most of the time you will be out touring the city thus spending less time in your room, therefore booking a decent low-priced 3 star hotel room / any other less glamorous apartment is more than fine.
– If you feel the need to indulge on a more luxurious lodging while at the same time remaining within your budget you may opt for booking a room at a five-star hotel on the last day of your travel visit. Not only is it really relaxing but totally worth it even though it may cause a bit of strain on your pocket. Continue reading
