It seems like a lifetime ago now but we recently visited Georgia for the first time. Georgia the country in Europe, not Georgia the state in America. It’s one of the Eurasian countries where Filipinos can travel without requiring a visa, that is if you have a valid residence visa in the UAE, which we have. Yay! We are allowed to visit visa-free for up to 90 days. We only needed a few days so that was great for us. In fact, there were quite a few Filipino holiday-makers in the same flight as ours. Why not take advantage of visa-free travel, yes?

The first Middle East Film and Comic Con was supposed to happen in 2011. It was cancelled due to the Fukushima tragedy in Japan as it affected some of the visiting artists. We thought that was the end of it and Comic Con would never actually happen in Dubai.
This is the 4th year of Comic Con here but the first time that I will actually go. Last year, my son was lucky recipient of a VIP Pass from a friend. No photo or signing sessions with any of the stars but he had a great time.
This weekend, Patrick and I will be making our way down those hallowed halls and hopefully get into a photo op with Capt. Kirk and Agent Carter. I am going to bring my GISHWHES flag and have Capt, Kirk hold it up with me.
Have you ever seen the fog rolling in in the Empty Quarter?
Have you ever wanted to make sand angels and end up with sand e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e? I mean, everywhere?
Have you ever thought, walking back away from the open desert, that the sand shifts and creates deep wells that make it hard to walk without falling on your hands and feet and thought that wa sit, you were going to get buried in the desert and die out there?
A very short throwback as this is a recap of last Friday’s 10km road race.
It begins with one step. In my case, that first step was to get up at dawn on a Friday when I would normally have a lie-in and get down to Jumeirah to participate in the Standard Chartered 10km Road Race. Up until the moment when Bernie, Patrick and myself arrived, huddled together to ward off the morning cold, I was not entirely sure that it was happening. It was surreal. I had my highlighter pink shirt on, track pants, sneakers, long sleeve shirt underneath and a light jacket to combat the cold, sunglasses and my 10km playlist on my iPhone – oh I was ready alright!
