Gwadar Bay, Pakistan.
Gwadar Bay is located in the Gulf of Oman on the maritime border of Pakistan and Iran. It is an inlet of the Arabian Sea indenting the sandy Makran coast at the Iran–Pakistan border.
Gwadar’s location and history have given it a unique blend of cultures. The Arabic influence upon Gwadar is strong as a consequence of the Omani era and its close proximity to the Arabian peninsula.
Derawar Fort, Pakistan.

I experienced different moods of Dubai like; The sand storm, the drizzle, the dense fog, the heat, the cleanliness, the fashion, International brands, different cultures, the movies, the cruise, the dancing fountains, the global village, the security, the excellent management, tasted food, fruits and veggies of different countries. I enjoyed everything to the fullest but the gift I brought from there is painful and will take time to make me forget it J I got flu and chest congestion so much so that I had to cut short my visit and came back home. Not back home but straight to the family doctor from the airport. All through night I coughed with fever and body pain. I smile to myself when I hear my own husky sexy voice J I got so much love and care from my niece and daughter and their families. They did whatever they could to soothe my pain. I was treated like a princess or to say queen is better because of my ageJ I got so many precious gifts from them. To be honest it’s all part of adventure!
I’m honored to have met my dear sister in law, my nephews and their families after 15 long years. They spent thousands of dollars just to meet me. I’m humbly grateful. I learnt that love is supreme and most powerful!
I came to Dubai on 20th of March with my son Ali for a one month visit. We are staying at my youngest daughter and her family. She lives in a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor. She has maintained it very well. Very clean and comfortable!
Dubai is famous for its biggest artificial beach Jumeirah, tallest building Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, biggest shopping Dubai Mall, most modern and expensive cars on the roads, chain of all brands available, and you name and you have it. It is most secured and looked after country. Pavements, railings are dust freed after midnight and not only that but the beaches are constantly cleaned by the sweepers. Sand is sifted by the machines so nothing unwanted thing is left behind on the beaches. A woman is safe in Dubai. She can wear jewels and gold and carry as much cash as she likes and go by taxi and any hour of night. She won’t be robbed, raped or kidnapped. Dubai is amazing, safe, peaceful and harmonious——-but—–
There’s no cross ventilation as far as I know in the malls. I may definitely be wrong, but every time I go to any mall I feel suffocated. I caught cold, sore throat and congestion. It may be due to air-conditioning as Dubai is advanced in all respects so they must have thought about it too. Being old having weak resistance and not used to live in air-condition rooms most of the time. I like to breathe in fresh air and have cross ventilation in my home so maybe it’s my outlook!
I landed Dubai on 20th March 2015. my daughter Nadia is here with her husband and son and so is my dearest daughter like niece Erum, who is very dear and close to my heart. I’m so lucky to have them. everyday we went out to different malls, watched movies did window shopping and had fun This is my second visit to Dubai. I like the peaceful safe and secure Dubai. its very clean, well organized and developing everyday. May it grow more to provide opportunities to unemployed.
one evening we went to Mall of Emirates. after some window shopping and enjoying we went to food court. I love to watch people of all races, religion, region and color beautifully casually or formally dressed going here and there least bothering what others do. Sitting in food court and enjoying Thai food i enjoyed every moment there. after finishing i got up forgetting my cell phone to pick up from the table. While going back home i remembered that i had no cell phone with me. We had reached quite far from the mall and it was late too so my son in law called on my cell number. Someone picked up and assured him that its safe with HR and can be got anytime. I was surprised and doubtful at the same time.
Next day we went and got it! I wonder whether it’s fear of punishment that no one took it. people of all nature but no one dares to steal———–
I’m very thankful for the security system that i got my dear cell phone. I’m not friends with smart phones so I love my old simple cell :)
Thank you Dubai
The reason for coming to Dubai this time is to meet my dear and great lady, my sister in law, her two sons with their families.w’ll be seeing each other after 15 long years. I feel humbly proud to acknowledge that they are just coming to see me.
