Hygiene is important..



Dubai is great place for food lovers. You can find various style and price range.
I took this photo around Bur Dubai. The restaurant has a open window to the pavement. it can be used as a display area and/or place to sell food for takeaway.

In these days, I am in a routine home - office - home
so the picture from my archive.

the scene club: Four Lions


The Scene Club is the first independent non-profit film club in UAE. Founded in 2007 and since then, they are growing rapidly. Till 2015, there was screening monthly basis. After getting more popular, this year, they increased the number of screening up to twice in a month. In Feb we had a chance to watch Argentinian movie  "Wild Tales"  about 6 short stories, kind a black comedy. We loved it a lot.

This month's screen was also comedy but more dram and crime involved. It is  Four Lions about 4 incompetent British Jihadists. While watching we laugh most of parts thinking it is caricatured but the sad part is, most of those scenes were real in some how.

Art Dubai

Last weekend there was 9th Edition of Art Dubai. One of my favourite event in Dubai. Unfortunately I was out of town and missed this year. Still I want to share one of art from last year's exhibition. From this size of picture it might not be visible but the model has calligraphy on her face, arm and feet. 





missing desert


It has been for a while I haven't been in desert. I wouldn't think that I could miss desert.
yes, I am.. That's why we have one picture from my archive.
I would prefer to sit silently and enjoy the peace at desert but these guys had different preference..

Full Moon behind the tower


This morning I woke up very early, planning to walk at the beach with friends taking advantage of winter (still) time in Dubai.
I saw Full Moon between these two towers. It was great moment to see in that angle.
I went inside to take my camera. Moon was moving so fast. the moment I got my camera, it already hidden behind the tower, Couple of seconds later it was gone out of my view totally.

Emirates Post


Every country has their own mailing system. Also United Arab Emirates has one, called "emirates post"
 I see these red letter boxes many places, Even I like their looks, I haven't tried them. I have no idea how to find stamp,

Some of my friends were using happily, were saying it works very well,
some other friends were saying tried once, that's enough. no need for the second.

I only received mails from Europe it was working well. If you are not in urgency and want to have some nostalgia, it is good to try it.

Ruben Sanchez in JLT


Last week, I shared Ruben Sanchez's work at Rehlatna. This week, I have something recently finished in February. This wall was nearly empty, there was only written one word without any artistic touch, I was hoping to see graffiti on that wall last 2 years every time I look at outside from my office. Thanks God, I was not alone thinking the same way. Finally there is art.

Posted for Monday Mural.

PS: I will continue posting from Rehlatna (world Longest graffiti scroll. ) There are still plenty details waiting to be posted here.

Ageing - Theme of the March


Last ten days, I was thinking what would be the best picture from Dubai about the ageing theme of March.
I found this theme much challenging, till this weekend. :)
While I was walking around at DIFC (Dubai International Financial Centre) I saw this bar. Immediately I like it a lot. Finally have the picture for the theme.

That would be the best way of ageing; having fun with friends till the end.. or even after "the end" :)

Please have a look other pictures for the theme "ageing" 


Have a nice sunny Sunday to all.
