*** Congratulations to Edez Maranan for winning my last competition, one free session of Aqua Radiance Facial by Kaya Skin Clinic! ***
It’s the second day of my Eid holidays and I’ve got two more left before going back to work full time – working until 6pm. I could’ve made some short exciting trips here and there like what we used to do but after five years in Dubai, it’s amazing how one can say at the top of their breath, “I’ve been there already” or “the bed is more appealing right now” because you’ve done the desert trip, seen camels, went to other Emirates like Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, etc…
So, at this point in time, I’m leaning towards the bed statement.
And it doesn’t help that my pregnant belly is getting really heavy to carry around, that I couldn’t possibly survive walking without my maternity belt. The bed is indeed more appealing. I always wake up telling myself “I can’t believe how tired I was and how refreshing that sleep was!”
First Eid in 2007, we went to the beach.
Abu Dhabi in 2008.
We went to Al Ain and saw camels along the way in 2009
Last year, it was Abu Dhabi again. To the Grand Mosque with my cousins who haven’t been there and to that tall tower at Marina Mall.
So it’s just proper that we stay at home in 2011, right?
Besides, tweets from people all over Dubai are pouring with news about the traffic, crowd congestion, etc. I can’t imagine being stuck in traffic for long, not in this condition where I feel the need to pee every hour or so. Reports say that Dubai police have closed all roads around the Dubai Mall because of heavy traffic – which means the husband might be coming home really late after work tomorrow if the same thing happens (as he works there).
Have you found yourself actually have nothing to do on short vacations? Me, I’m happy with a little TV, small talks with my daughter, lunch outside and lots of sleeping.
What do you do on your “staycation”?
