Things to do in Dubai

Here is the the list of things I plan to do in Dubai
* Shop till I drop - even if it's window shopping (keeping in mind how much luggage space I have)
* Visit a Cousin who I haven't seen in person my whole life; why am I that keen to meet him now god only knows?
* Visit Satish (Thatha) who's moved there a few years back. He did come back to Bangalore last year but then I was in US at the time. So seeing him after a good couple of years.
* Visit the Sharjah Cricket stadium
* Go on a Desert Safari
* Revel in the Arabic Music and Belly Dancing (Had been treated to one such performance on my Atlanta Visit)
* See some Camels and maybe a Camel Race (a traditional sport of the UAE)

And of course, finish the planned business with Mr. D :-)

I am obviously open to any other suggestions by people who've visited Dubai / Sharjah before too!!!

Getting back to Reading!!!

This is another of my short term visions for myself. Want to get back to my reading best - what better timing than my long flight back to India.

Once upon a time not too long ago - I used to do 2-3 big fat ones o'er a weekend!!! Before you get any ideas - still on the topic of books and reading!!!

Me waiting for your suggestions!!!

Badminton Days

Tue/Wed/Thur are good sporting days. 2 hours almost of wholesome Badminton. Really - nothing like it. Especially if I'm lucky enough to play singles. Otherwise more often than not end up playing doubles with one or two weak links in the game and rallies getting over in no time.

And nothing beats a cold beer relaxing in front of the Pond infront of our balcony after coming back from Baddie!!! One more of life's simple pleasures!!!

Since the next couple of weeks the rec center is supposed to be closed, last week was my last day of Badminton in US. Will I get to play in India? Will I have enough time between all the Traffic Jams and stuff to step out and play?

One of my end of year targets is to find work at some place within 20 mins from home so that I can continue to enjoy these simple pleasures of life!!!
