Got a glimpse of some trailers and masterpieces of the artists for 2018 and may I just say, they’re worth the time to see and appreciate.
The Festival opens with a networking reception allowing visitors and artists to connect and interact in an extraordinary atmosphere of the evening during which an awarding ceremony for Visual Arts and Photography categories will take place.
Remember the action movies you’ve seen so far? Those dramatic, tear-jerking scenes when you’re about to take your last breath and your whole life flashes right back at you. Well, it’s really not always like that. Or at least on my assumptions.

I’ve always been the type of person who never gets tired of the water. I sometimes take a day off from work when I feel exhausted and you’d find me by the beach. 2017 has been so great to me, giving way to new experiences and adventure. This year marked the very first time I have properly explored the water. This as well marked the time I have decided to take diving lessons and eventually aim for diving license, and I mean PADI thing.
Before this experience, I thought of diving as purely something part of my bucket list, but I ended up knowing it is so much more than that. It was more than just getting into the water and seeing all sorts of fish pass-by you. Discovering that such type of fish or creature is silently beautifying beyond the surface.
I have found my type of luxury in life. We call it, EXPERIENCE. As I grow older, I aim more to forget my fears and embrace chances. The moment I ended my very first diving experience, I knew I left my heart underneath. I knew as well that I’ll be coming back for more.
So, I’ve been hearing and seeing a lot of fuzz about Armenia and its beauty. I have decided to look for the cheapest way to get there. Been searching left and right then I found several options including Holiday Factory
I wasn’t really the cheapest I guess cause the 999AED was no longer available plus, I preferred to stay in a 4-star hotel so there was like about 400AED price difference. The way it actually work is that once you purchase the travel voucher, you are suppose to submit an online request for your travel date through their website. Now, I have indicated my first name and last name on the online form and submitted hoping that they can inform me when I can travel. 3 days later, I received a voucher and invoice confirming that my alternative travel date has been approve. Mind you, it was all find with me. I later realize that it was only my first name and last name which was on the ticket which kind of freaked me out. I tried getting in touch with the holiday factory team to get hold of the situation, but the conversation started to heat up when Sally from their team called me up to say that I have to pay AED 500 to add my 2nd name which appears on my passport and said that I may not be allowed to travel because the name on the ticket is a different person. Guess what, IT’S NOT! It is the exact same first name and exact same last name that is in my passport. I have decided to get hold of the Fly Dubai social media team to have much better assistance and better understanding as you can see below.
As you can see on the image, Fly Dubai has confirmed that first name and last name are the most critical information. What I don’t understand is why Holiday Factory did not even manage to inform me about this (which I am pretty sure they already know) instead, tried to make me pay the amount of AED 500 just to add my freaking 2nd name on my ticket?
I just hope nobody falls into this kind of trap. As a consumer, I sort of felt as if I was attempted to be robbed. Considering that it was my first experience purchasing a holiday with them, I might be 200% extra careful next time. I hope you are too.
We all had our own experience of being excited to do something, which you thought would take some more time or years for you to do.
I’ve always been the adventure seeker kind of person. Not that I am very keen on adrenalin rush, because really, I have my own fears and restrictions on my definition of adventure.
Anyway, I have living about 4 years now and Ras Al Khaimah and believe me, it’s only now-a-days do I get to discover most of the active things you can do in this northern emirates of UAE.
March 4, 2016 my colleagues and I had a chance to experience one of the countless awesome things you can actually scrap out of your bucket list. One on my list is canyoning. Man, was I excited, really excited to the point that I woke up at around 5am despite the fact that we had to meet at around 8:30am. Challenging Adventure‘s headquarters is situated at Wadi Al Beih, Ras Al Khaimah, this is just about the same way as going to Jebel Jais (Tallest Mountain in the whole UAE).
The have a lot of professionals who will be able to guide you on your experience and ensure your safety. Before we went for our adventure, we were oriented and properly briefed. Then out we go to the starting point and then again, we were taught of how we can be the support for each other to ensure that no one gets hurt and for us to be cautious of what we should be avoiding.
Up we go, our group was mostly girls and of course, it didn’t stop our group to have fun, share laughters and enjoy the experience. We all started having our own set of fears but as we went on, we get to take turns and realize we don’t have to be scared but rather enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the nature. At the end, we were all very proud of each other that we all did it from start till the end of the journey.

How often do we take each day of our lives for granted?
How often do we fail to appreciate every single thing that comes our way?
How often do we fail to acknowledge every single opportunity that faith gives us?
How often to we fail to thank every single person that comes into our lives and make a change?
I know for myself that often meant more than what it is suppose to. Clearly, I’m not a perfect person nor am I anywhere near that perfection. Often, I fail and I forget. But one thing is for sure, I wi
ll never fail to remember how precious life is and I will never forget how beautiful life is. I have been brought here as the being that I am with a purpose and no different than anybody else.
Al Hamra Village (Al Hamra Real Estate Development LLC) Ras Al Khaimah had launched the “Before I Die”project which I myself never knew it existed. It took place last April 16 & 17 along with their Al Hamra Market at Al Hamra Marina Royal Yacht Club. This project actually was done and put up for a great purpose. For every single person, may it be a UAE local or expat, to realize that life is precious. Reminding every being that each day has to be lived by heart, embracing both success and hardship knowing that everything happens for a reason. Just keep the faith up and running, smile and keep fighting the battle you are destined to win.
On a personal note, seeing this board makes me remember the people I have loved and lost. Asking myself what could have been their last goal before departing. Remembering how much they have influenced me as a person and my life. In my heart I could only end up to one single thought, they have inspired me to be the person that I am right now.
I know I have written only one thing. “Before I die, I want to be somebody”. I want to be someone who have touched at least another person’s life. I want to be someone who will always be remembered by a smile that hides all the pain and hardship. I want to be someone who could be successful and being accountable for it alone. I want to be someone who simply dreamed of proving my worth in this earth. How about you? What do you desire in life before you die?
