A Perfect Saturday

Husband gets me up at 6:30 in the morning on a Saturday morning and requests ( because I am not a morning person :)) if we can go on an early morning drive. I agree and we leave at 7:15.

Since husband has recently got his driving license and we are new to Dubai, hence not so familiar with Dubai Roads so naturally we get lost a lot :) :) and that is what happened, we got lost, yet again. Anyways I had an Artist's Meet for an upcoming Exhibition at 11 am and the coffee shop where this meeting was scheduled was in a Mall  located on Jumeirah Beach Road which is at least 30 minute ride from our home. And we only returned home from the early morning lost drive at 10 so naturally we were late for the meeting. We got ready super fast and left home at  around 10:45.

Now we use google maps for navigation, so I got directions for Mercato Mall and reached a mall in some 30 minutes but it was not the one where we were supposed to go. So what do we do now????  All this time, husband was saying that he had checked on the internet for the location of the mall and that we had taken a wrong turn, but I did not pay attention because I had navigated nicely almost all the times before so as usual I was over confident :). Anyways, we decided to follow husband's instincts and reached the destination at around 12 ( yup an hour late, but we are not to be blamed, its the google maps and crazy dubai roads to be blamed :))

The meeting had just started so did not miss out on much. I showed them my Art Work and they had never seen anything like it before and then obviously I was all happy and proud :). By the way it was great meeting so man artists with so many different things to offer.

So meeting gets over and well it was a mall so I had to check out some shops. I refrained myself from buying a footwear but then ended up buying a shimmer top ( most likely I will be wearing it for New Years Party :))

We had our lunch at Mc Donalds and then we thought that its only 3:30 and since we have come to Jumeirah Beach Road, we might as well see the Jumeirah Beach. It was calm and beautiful there. All you could hear was the sound of the wind and the waves and to see there was Dubai's Skyline on one end and beautiful blue waters on the other end. It was perfect. I think the following pictures will do the explanation :








We spent some 2-3 hours on this beach, simply walking, talking and clicking pictures :)

We came back home, ordered Chinese, watched a movie and slept :)
So all in all a day spent well in my books :) :) . An early morning drive, getting lost then finding the way back, meeting some talented people, walking on the beach, relaxing at the end of the day with great food and a movie... Simply PERFECT :)

What would your perfect day be like ? How would you like to spend it ????



And Yes!!!! here is a sneak peek into one of my new Art Work :) :) 
By the way, this one has peacocks in it :)



P.S: In UAE, weekends mean holidays on Fridays and Saturdays. Sunday is the first working day of the week, just like mondays in the rest of the world

  50. I know how beautiful Dubai is.I visited last year in December and want to see more of it. My sis in law lives just across the Beach very close to Burj. I stopped to write a comment because white is my favourite colour and you look elegant in that white dress plus your pictures reminded me of Dubai.
