Who would have thought that there is a garden of flowers in the middle of the desert. I mean, not really in the desert. Come to think of it, I’ve been living in U.A.E for quite a long time and perhaps whenever someone would ask me anything about this place, the first things comes to my mind are hot, desert and buildings.
HOW TO GO
In the main bus terminal of Abu Dhabi, you need to ride a bus going to Ibn Battuta, Dubai. Then, ride the metro train going to the Mall of Emirates Station where there are buses going directly to Dubai Miracle Garden.
Entry fee for adults is AED 45/- for children below 12 years of age is AED 35/- and infants below 2 years of age is free.
This year the park’s theme is “Sunflower Lovers.”
The garden also features a life-sized replica of Emirate plane A380. Just imagine how many flowers needed to plant to fill this plane.
This is absolutely perfect for families and friends who wants to escape the bustle of the city.
Aside from a bunch of flowers, there are also several food and beverages stalls inside the park. Strictly, they do not allow visitors to bring food from outside.
Dubai Miracle Garden located in Al Barsha South 3 opens everyday. It is best to visit during cold season from December to mid February as they close on summer.
Considering that we only have a day off at work, long holiday weekends are little things we surely look forward to. That’s why our group decided to have a day in Dubai. Continue reading “One day in Dubai”
Unplanned trips are certainly those which pushed through.
Just before the office hours is over, the team decided to go on an overnight stay in a resort and hotel in Fujairah – Sandy Beach Hotel & Resort. Fujairah is one of the seven emirates that make up United Arab Emirates.

It is actually my first time to go to a mosque, not to think it will be a grand one. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque must have been on the top of the list of the most visited place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Continue reading “Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, AUH”
It was Big Eid or Eid Al Adha – the Feast of Sacrifice in Islamic tradition. But the only thing we sacrificed that day is a little amount of AED 150 to enjoy an afternoon full of adventure and a night full of fun.

I came with high hopes.
Hopes that were slowly fading away like the wind blowing the sands of this desert land.

Time is really flying so fast.
It has been exactly a month since I came here in this sand land. It has also been a month since I made a post. I focused on job hunting with a bit of… wandering.
Continue reading “Happy First Month, UAE!”
It was morning of March 18, 2016 when I first set foot in the sand land – United Arab Emirates. I wanted to shout right after I got out of the plane’s door, raise my hands, jump out of joy, and welcome myself in this country. But of course, Continue reading “Day 01 : Feels like home away from home”
I never really thought of working abroad. Travelling? Yes, that is on my list. But working overseas, away from families and friends, and starting a life in a different country is another story. So why am I here in this situation? Haha! I don’t really know. Continue reading “My thoughts on going to UAE”
Sometimes a flower, often a person.
A person that is…
Quite most of the times but with lots of thoughts going on their mind.
Hates to be alone but not confident being with a lot of people.
Struggles to blend in.
A listener more than a speaker.
Prefers writing than long conversations.
Who wants to be noticed but don’t want the attention.
Shy, uncomfortable and awkward.
Who wanted to try to be different but afraid to get out of comfort zones.
Someone who is just like… me.
I’m a wallflower, a nobody.
And I hate it and love it at the same time.
