Look Who is One!
In just one year, our love for you grew, to one for all time, that none could undo. From Dad
Joyeux Anniversaire joli papillon. De Maman
She is one today. What a day! The excitement started 10 minutes before the party...She actually decided to make her first step! Michael and I both looked at each other with a massive grin on our face!
Hmm, yummy, her first taste of chocolate cake.
A rainbow cake for a colourful little butterfly.
One, two, three...Blow...
Skye received so many wonderful gifts, thank you all, from pretty dresses to home made cookies and hand knitted clothes, to books, toys and a hilarious funny red stuffed toy camel dressed in a devil. Then, you can imagine the rest: a room full of balloons and cakes, oh, and yes, I almost forgot to mention the screaming children hooked on sugar and sweets. Everyone had fun. Wish you were here.

What a significant word, a word which I despise so much. I try not to think about it, whether it is noise pollution (which is the one that annoys me the most) or the smog, not to forget the garbage, etc...and the list goes on!
In very polluted countries, youngsters could develop asthma, pneumonia and other lower respiratory infections.
The sad fact is that Cairo is currently on top of the list for the most polluted city in the world, number two is Delhi then comes Kolkata.
I still believe that one person cannot change the way the universe think but governments and leaders should start applying strict rules and regulations or else our children will never have what we had. The planet will vanish sooner than expected.
I remember once watching a futuristic movie about the end of the world and through all the mayhem, a child lays his eyes on a magnificent creature which he has never seen before. You can obviously feel him questioning his father who in return answered: " A bird...a bird".
Visitor of the U.A.E.
Michael's sister dropped by for a few days. So we decided to play tourists. My advice to the visitors of the U.A.E.is if you are here on a short visit, here are some of the places you should see...The Burj and the majestic Burj Al Arab of course, the Sharjah aquarium, AlBastakiya with its galleries and don't forget its spice shop, the Gold Souk, the Karama souk, there are so many malls, it is hard to pick one but my favourite has to be the Emirates Mall. If you are a seafood fan, you should visit a fish market and experience the hustle and bustle of the local fishermen. I just love it.
A visit to the U.A.E. is never fulfilled without a picnic or even a camping trip to the desert, a drive through Sheikh Zayed Road's highway or a walk on the beach.
Well, my head is spinning right now from going around all these places. Hope to catch there. See you all.
