My fellow Lasallians. My batchmates. A real good friend and a new bonded friend. 
 
One weekend not far from today. I had a few visitors from California and Dubai.
 
Surprisingly they were the visitors I never expected to have at my paradise home.
 
Rawlin is a good friend of mine back in highschool. Since she migrated to California, (I think) I never had the chance to see her or spend time with her. 
 
While Ivan on the other hand was just a random friend in high school as well  whom I just say “hi” or nod my head a little whenever we bump each other at the hall way of our classrooms or by the discipline office. Just a typical batchmate to make it short. 
 
So there it was, an afternoon to spend and have some fun with this two along with Ernan and Grace whom I also met here in UAE.

Few bites of chicken by the Sea shore. Few gulps  of cola from the plastic cups. Few pieces of french fries. Then comes a moment of fun by the sea of such a wonderful place where I live. 
But then again, it didn’t end there. We then went on for a dip by the pool. Then it was time for the ladies to sit back and relax as the two chefs we were with do their thing at the kitchen. 
 
It’s one of the priceless things in life I really appreciate at that very moment. Sharing stories while having dinner and having a few drinks after. Appreciating a renewed friendship and the new ones. 
 
For once which hopefully won’t be the last I have shared my relaxing then with a good old friend and the new. 
 
I appreciated life more as I took a few relaxing moments with them. 
 
 
 
 

The home I have found in the Rising Emirate

I have been living in UAE for a little more than a year now. 

I have spent those days and months living with people I barely know. Yet they showed me kindness and sense of belonging and I will forever be grateful to them. I have spent those resting moments in the lower level of a double deck. I had to wake up early to be able to take a bath with less pressure that someone is already waiting outside for his/her turn to use the bathroom.

I have spent those days and months away from my family yet never did my father’s advice left my mind, heart and soul. He used to tell me “dream high, aim high” and he would also tell me how big of a dreamer I was for a lady. I kept it as a reminder by heart.

So there I was, I tried spreading my wings as I let go of the things I already have. Hoping that I may find my shift in destiny by any chance. Just like any other person, I got bruises along the way, and in each of them is a life’s lesson bound to be learned, by me.  I came to a point that I have almost lost hope by I never stopped flipping my wings up and down praying for the wind of my path would start to calm. It did.

God was so great he blessed me with the light which made me see that doorway which leads to a bigger world of challenges and growth. A place where I can see my dreams turning into reality.  I have found a less expensive yet so adorable baby blue car, and that covered parking area by my workplace. A big building with a private access I can enter. That brown desk to work at and a boss who trusts his people.

Finding that perfect work, made me found a paradise. But never be blinded with the word for I have my own description of it.

Paradise for me is a place so high I can see almost everything that surrounds me day and night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Al Hamra Village

Paradise for me is a place with a balcony where I can calmly enjoy my hot cup of coffee in the morning. Where I can just close my eyes and play with my thoughts of life and every day. Reminiscing a little of my past thinking what the future may hold for me.

Paradise for me is a place surrounded by the sea, where I can just spend a moment worrying about nothing in my life. Where I can enjoy taking a little walk or jog just to clear my mind.

As I turn a year older in UAE, away from my family. I have come to realize how blessed I am.

For I have found a new home in the rising emirate, Ras Al Khaimah.
