National Day

Tomorrow is national day here in UAE, my plan is to stay as close to my house as possible (can't risk going out and getting stuck in the maddening traffic).

Planning to spend a quiet afternoon at Sahara Mall near to my apartment.

Anyone who has tried to find sharjah police office location will agree with me that its a pain to find the location below are the co-ordinates which can be used with any GPS or Google Earth to find the exact spot where you need be.

Latitude : 25°21'29.26"N
Longitude : 55°26'37.37"E

Shop till you drop

Sharjah Traffic

Fun for everyone

Sharjah traffic - today i had a close encounter of the "Time Wasting" kind, had a little scuffle in the al-nahda park roundabout crowd and got a scratch from another

it was a contest between camry (meooo) and corolla (some idiot).... well when you get into trouble there only one winner that is police. well they took their sweet time to get to where we had the little accident and 2 hours got wasted. In the end i got a "no fault" ticket, but wasting 2 hours is not worth ...

bottom line get up early like 5am and start for office by 5:45am - live the shit life.... Working in Dubai one should not look for comforts.

Gold Souk

Before Real Estate and tourism took the first place, one of the things Dubai was originally famous was its Gold Souk.

It is still one of the money grosser for Dubai, Yesterday i went down to Gold Souk and as usual found the parking impossible to fine. If you have to go please plan before and reach there just before shops open say at 3pm on saturday or 3pm friday... there will be plenty of parking and peace of mind as there will be less shoppers.

happy shopping.

While you are here .... please click on the google ads on the left hand side

Weekend in Dubai means only one thing Shopping Malls and traffic. Well i am gonna get plenty of both of them as i plan to shop around for my vacation this weekend.

Caution : There is some fireworks display planned @ Dubai Mall, don't bother to go around that area today - but if you like to spend lots of time stuck in traffic then off you go, its supposed to be a good event.

Free At Last

Hey guys... me going on leave in December, will be going to the heavenly Hyderabad. I can almost smell the air, the chatwalas, bawarchi's briyani, two wheeler traffic jams, Charminar, Old City, RTA Busses, familiar roads, cheap books (can be purchased on sunday @ Abids Footpath :) ) and last but not least Meenakshi Paan.


A word of advice for all new parents, if your toddler is having trouble with digestion - try Isabgol which is a natural vegetable (sort of) better than anything pharmacy has to offer.

More info about Isabgol

Isabgol is the husk obtained from Psyllium plant. It is a natural vegetable product obtained from the seeds of this plant by milling. This product is mainly used as a bowel regulator. Isabgol absorbs water and swells up to give increased bulk in the intestine. It also increases the moisture content of the stools. This promotes the normal peristaltic movements and the bowel mobility. Isabgol is the age-old medicine used in ayurveda for the treatment of problems associated with constipation. Most of the people do not get sufficient amount of fiber form the daily diet. As a result more than 75% of the population are overweight and have problems related to indigestion, gastritis, high cholesterol levels and some times may also be the cause for colon cancer.
