Before 2017 ended, we were blessed enough to have been able to visit the newest museum in town, Louvre Abu Dhabi. Coming from Al Ruwais, it took about an hour and a half before we reached the venue. Good thing my aunt was able to book our tickets online so we didn't have to line up amongst the long cue of people by the entrance gates. The area is truly attractive from the outside, and the washrooms along with the perfect greenery for photo-shoots are situated outdoors. The museum's dome-like structure is already a work of art in itself — bravo to the ones who came up with its construction and design. So genius!
We spent last Sunday (June 25th) with our family in the farthermost part of the UAE (I guess) which is Al Ruwais. Al Ruwais is a 4-5 hour drive from where we live in Sharjah. Since it was a special holiday because of Eid Al Fitr, an Islamic celebration after Ramadan, we had the time to travel and meet up with our cousins, aunts and uncles. We left Sharjah at around 8 in the morning and reached the capital (Abu Dhabi) at exactly 9:35 am. We quickly dropped by in one of my uncle's home there and headed to Yas mall right after. The mall was jam packed with people that it took the rest of us hours to find parking due to the #Megasale.
Hi there! I hope you're having a great week so far. As promised, here's some of the snaps taken when we visited the Heritage House in Bur Dubai. We were given a treat by one of my dad's friend not so long ago in one of the café inside the heritage itself, which gave us the chance to take photos of the amazing art that surrounded the culture of the older Arabs. I have been living in the UAE for God knows how long, but I haven't really indulged that much on its culture that I really treasured the time we had. I hope you enjoy this photo tour. I would like to apologize, however, if there had to be a lot of faces in the photos. I didn't realize that I wanted to put it in the blog earlier, so please bear with me! My bad.
Thanks for making it to this portion of the internet. I am truly grateful to each one of you for reading my entries! Most of what I've written here are unspoken words — words I wish I could've said or shared with anyone in person but has remained in my heart until I was able to write it in here.
My life's full of downs than ups, but through it all, I have seen and tasted the sweetness of God's grace and love. With that, I can tell you with a convinced heart that God is faithful, He is good and He never runs out of love for you and for me. Hope you enjoy your read(s)!
Rest if you must, but don't you quit!
