I’m Back to Bring You the Weather Update
On my way to work earlier today, I saw a bus full of tourists who clearly appear to be regretting the day they decided to visit Dubai during this time of the year. The travel sector has lowered air fairs, hotel rooms are on discounted rates, 50% off on desert safari and cruise dinners, thereby luring tourists in the middle of the desert with this unforgiving heat. Summer has just started. The picture above has nothing to do with this story, except that I am fascinated by those date trees and thought I’d share them.
But I’m not kidding about the heat, you guys. Here’s the latest weather forecast:
No, I did not make this up.
How are we coping? Oh, don’t worry about us; we’ve acclimatized perfectly so that we don’t even realize it’s summer already. Here’s proof of how comfortable we are in the desert:
I know. It’s that time of the year again when, after mysteriously disappearing from the blogging scene for sixty two years without any explanation whatsoever, Nadia resurfaces so that she could rant about the weather. Regardless, I’m still here in the U.A.E. after all these years simply because I love it here.
We had dinner at my parents’ a few days ago, and my sisters cooked some amazing meals! I love their idea of serving bite-sized chickpea salad on crackers and probably ate around forty pieces.
But the winner was called chicken tangri kabab, drumsticks that were marinated in spices and then broiled or grilled (I’m not even sure), but they were so delicious! I ate ten pieces and took another twenty home with me.
There’s a I’m-so-in-the-mood-to-bake-cupcakes bug in my household these days, although it’s pretty apparent that only I am infected. I bought muffin trays and cases a few days ago. The plan is to bake chocolate banana cup cakes.
Obviously, no cupcake has been baked yet. I have a valid reason: we’re waiting until the bananas are over ripe; the recipe strictly calls for that.
Oh, and I’ve lost four kilograms. I celebrate my weight loss and generously reward my efforts by eating these:
Have a great weekend everyone!
