The Magic of the Dubai Fountains

I’ve just returned from an amazing trip to Dubai (stay tuned for future posts!!!) – the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the country.

There’s lots and lots to tell you about Dubai but I wanted to take the opportunity to share the magic of the Dubai Fountains which are timed to energetically “dance” to the beat of beautiful cultural music.

People wait in large crowds just to witness the show – and there is different music for each “performance” – but you get to sit back and enjoy just over 60 seconds of liquid lines of gold, moving against an awesome city skyline.

My Visit to Tokyo: How’s This For Food Display

Upon arrival in Shinjuku one of the first things we did was to check out a restaurant or two for dinner.  Imagine my surprise to see what appeared to be actual dishes, standing upright in beautifully made display cases, invitingly showcased in several windows (complete with prices and what looked like descriptions)!

Upon a closer look, I realised the very realistic looking dishes were actually made out of moulds. Yikes! Looks as though Tokyo restaurant owners fully believe that variety is the spice of life!

It was hard to choose but in the end, this is what I decided on having for dinner 🙂

Old Glory; New Perspective

I visited New York City for the first time in July and made sure visiting the Empire State Building was on my NYC bucket list. Although it was a kind of foggy-ish yet sunny day, suffice to say the views were amazing and you really appreciated the scale of the buildings when seen from such a different perspective.

Guess that’s why it’s good to apply such experiences to our life in general, meaning how you see a situation as being positive or negative will depend on whether you are looking up or looking down. Something to think about 🙂
