thanks girl! hugs! :)
to all my sisses in n@w, i share this with you.

he picked me up after work, and since our reservation for dinner was at 7:30 pm, we both decided to have coffee at the Starbucks outlet at the DIFC Balcony Level to pass the time. we just chatted for about an hour, lazily checked out the other outlets nearby after having our drinks, and watched the juggler perform in the Spanish Steps.
when it was time for dinner, we headed to the nearby Shakespeare & Co., a local café that has the ambience of a chic early 1900’s coffee shop. picture this on your head: on the indoors, they have granny doilies and French-laced decors that match their wooden antique furniture, with low volume soft music, while on the outdoors, they have this ginormous outdoor terrace that has a refreshing look – thanks to those billowing sheets and floral upholstered sofas that could literally hug you when you sit.
although the weather was so enticing to dine al fresco, we chose to stay indoors since we wanted to stay away from the smokers. as soon as we got seated, i was handed a long stemmed red rose by the maitre d’, while hubby was given dark chocolates on a small platter. hmm, so valentine-y!
i’d have to say that besides the great ambience, our dining experience was superb! the Shakespeare Co. special and salmon fillet they served totally stuffed our bellies that we no longer had room for dessert after the main course. after our dinner, we headed straight home as we had to pack for the next day’s trip to Al Ain. as a gift to my loving husband, i treated him to a tour of Al Ain, which is located in the eastern region of
kwentos of our trip to Al Ain will be shared in another instalment, so hang in there for details of our out of town weekend. i promise, there’ll be loads of pictures!
until then! :)
with the “eclectic mix of art and culture” in our organization, i thought it’s only but timely to write about the upcoming Chinese New Year for our Thought of the Month column for February. i actually wasn’t expecting to receive any token for my article, so i was surprised when i found out from my friend at work, Abbie that i will be getting an iPod Nano for my published piece of writing. yey! another free Mac stuff...not bad :)
sister, happy birthday to you! i pray for your continued happiness and success in life. you deserve only the very best! we may not be connected by blood, but by soul, we definitely are. i hope you bear in mind that you have a family in us – Ryan & myself, together with my parents and siblings.
love you loads!! mwah!
