UAE 44

Happy National Day, UAE!
It’s been Forty-four years in the history. Long weekend celebrations for us from Dec. 2 to 4. While other went out of town, I/we choose to stay at home, quick visit to mall, food trip and observe the holiday by doing the most simplest things.

To commemorate the 44 period, I listed here the 44 simple, bloopers, funny things I/we did during our day off:

1. Reading devotional mini-book while in bed.
2. Paratha for breakfast.
3. Urgent clean up because someone is dropping by to your house.
4. Meeting new friend.
5. Chit-chatting with your cousin’s officemate.
6. Re-using leftover as ingredients to home-cooked bow pasta.
7. Catch up some episode of tv series on your mobile.
8. Helping your cousin in preparing meal for dinner.
9. A Patchi chocolate wrap in UAE color as pasalubong.
