My 5-day trip in Jordan visiting Petra, Wadi Musa, Wadi Araba, and Dead Sea, and reuniting with my childhood best friend in Amman

The Phantom of the Opera is one of the longest running musicals in history. In its 33rd year, it had finally arrived in Dubai. Initially, I thought that the ticket was almost as expensive as Broadway (if not more) so I thought, with a heavy heart, I'd pass for now and...

Anyone who grew up on Bible stories will find it interesting to know that Noah's Arc apparently landed on Mount Ararat after the Great Deluge. Armenians are said to be Noah's direct descendants and as it transpired in history, Armenia is also the first country in the w...

Here comes round 2 of Summer in New York City! There's still so much to do and so much to see in this vibrant city that's becoming one of my most favorite in the world. There's just nothing like it!

Although it was more of a relaxing trip (after months and months of bac...

I think homemade gifts are the best as they are thoughtful despite the fact that they don't look anything close to store bought. I find there's beauty in rustic, imperfect efforts; and family and friends seem to appreciate homemade gifts more. Plus, you can make them p...

This is my Daisy. 🌼 She was rescued from the streets of Dubai. My best guess is she was abandoned by an Expat who had decided to leave the UAE for good. It’s unfortunately common here, which is why it was recently made illegal. Irresponsible pet owners who don’t regis...

It's the lucky number 7 for Dubai Miracle Garden when it recently received another Guinness Book of World Record for its 7th season's tallest topiary, an 18-foot 35-ton Mickey Mouse (made up of over 100,000 flowers) to celebrate his 90th anniversary. And lucky for me,...

Without a doubt, like many, I am a Disney kid and a Potterhead. So, naturally, part of my trip planning would include finding places and activities that have to do with Disney movies and Harry Potter. And New York City is the perfect place to do that as there are many...

I will keep this simple and sweet like Halloween candies. No ghouls or ghosts, black cats or boiling cauldrons, spooky spells or haunted houses. But perhaps a few pumpkins. And definitely, a girl and the memories she made in her favorite city at her favorite time of th...

The acclaimed American journalist and author, Tom Wolfe, once said, "One belongs to New York City instantly. One belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years." This was personally true for me after I took a 17-hour flight from Dubai through London Heathrow to...

It usually takes me a while to put a post up after traveling for a vacation.


Getting back to work and in the swing of things usually sets aside the selection of photos and editing footage; much less putting it all together. 

I kind of surprised myself with this one. I hope I get to keep it up for next time. 

"Armenia: the Land of Noah" is up on the blog! Enjoy the video. I enjoyed editing it.
