Dubai Canal Boardwalk – Echoes of my Neighbourhood

This city is constantly changing its aesthetics, adding new attractions and relaxation points each day. The new Dubai canal boardwalk offers a beautiful waterside walkway that runs about 3.2 km each way.

We went there on a Saturday night there were loads of families were out for a stroll, several joggers pounding the pavement, selfie-takers indulging themselves, people sitting around chit-chatting away, boats with happy party passengers cruising up and down the canal.

Interestingly,  there are USB chargers installed in the streetlights so you can charge your phone for all those snaps. Two of the pedestrian bridges are open and the views are amazing.

Some work is still ongoing to turn the place green, however, the total ambiance like the French would say ‘C’est Magnifique.’

Oh, my word! Lady Lee knows how to lay a table that would make you drool and the snowy shots of Munich are simply enchanting. They look like postcards. Take a peek 🙂

If you would like to participate, the challenge is quite simple and you can find out more about it through this link.

Cityscape Dubai – Echoes Of My Neighbourhood.

On Thursdays, I share pictures about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple and you can find out more about it through this link.

Cityscape Dubai is the largest and most influential real estate exhibition in the Middle East/Gulf region. This years’ exhibition concludes today, 8th September and over 300 companies from the UAE and abroad showcased their ambitious and beautiful building projects.

It’s a key event during which developers, architects, investors, real estate professionals, city building authorities and interested citizens gather in one place. Investors get to buy properties off plan or almost completed and resell or rent to turn a good profit.

I have always believed in property investment, but I am not yet fortunate enough to afford the steep cost of investing in property over here. Who knows, maybe when I sign that bestseller of mine, then I may just be rolling in enough wad to invest, but hey, it doesn’t hurt to look and know what’s available out here.

What I marvel at is the precision and beauty of the architectural designs on display. There was so much to look at that I could barely get around in my hours of attending the exhibition.

Lady Lee takes us briefly to India through her doors 🙂

I love seeing where people are visiting or staying and would be glad to see your neighbourhood.

Have a good weekend ahead. Just a day to go 😉

Ambition – Everyday beautiful people 96

“There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.” W.E.B. Dubois

Ambition[1]

“I would like to be an architect,” she told me in her soft melodious voice and I listened.

“I am starting my course at the University this September and I am so glad.”

‘You see, I am from Yemen and it’s not easy for us as women. There’s a lot of gender disparity,’ she continued in her lilting tone

I could see the shining ambition in her eyes and the beautiful smile on her clear pretty face and I felt such pleasure just knowing that she’s getting the opportunity to pursue her passion and ambition.

The saying that when you raise and train a woman, you raise a village, a town, a nation came to my mind.

Jacqueline writes from her heart on passion, pain, suffering, loss and LIFE. I have been incredibly moved by her poetry and I know I will return to “Out of the Silent Breath” again and again.
