Celebrations & Blessings !

The last two weeks have been a true blessing. We celebrated the National Day (37 years of unity) on December 2, 2008. The celebrations were all across the country. In streets, schools & universities, shopping malls, workplace, media. It was a true festival to celebrate the unity of the seven emirates who came together as one in 1971.

On the 8th of December, Muslims celebrated Eid Al Adha. You can feel the true spirit of Eid when you see your relatives whom you don't get to see that much, take the trouble of dressing up and visiting you with their children. It could be a bit tedious, especially when visitors are coming non-stop from morning till night, but it is all worth it =)

In between the two celebrations, the UAE was blessed with rainy days that lasted around 5 days, on and off. I love driving in the rain and listening to the sound of rain on the car. It is music to my ears. I was lucky enough to be driving around Dubai when it poured heavily that it was so difficult to see. Yet, I had a big stupid smile on my face all the way, and of course I didn't forget to take pictures =)
