Christmas : It’s the best time of the year !

What’s your favorite month of the year? Why?

Many people find Christmas special due to the festive atmosphere, the joy of giving and receiving, spending time with loved ones, and the sense of goodwill that often accompanies the holiday season.

The joy of visiting everyone’s house and singing Christmas carols makes me feel overwhelmed and blessed. Before Christmas we gather at our native chapel and dress the kids with cosplay depicting the birth of Jesus. The group includes Joseph, Mother mary, a doll as Jesus, Shepherd, 4 Angels and Three Kings.

After reaching at the house we sing carol singing with guitar and drums to spread the joy in the family,followed by a short dance by the Santa clause along with the family members. That is the best moment to watch out for.

Houses are often decorated for Christmas with various festive elements such as lights, wreaths, ornaments, and Christmas trees. Indoor decorations may include stockings, garlands, and other ornaments. Outdoor displays often feature lights, inflatable figures, and other seasonal decor. The style and extent of decorations can vary widely, allowing individuals to express their unique holiday spirit.

During Christmas people often prepare variety of festive snacks and treats. Plum cake, Ginger bread, are my favorites.

Many churches offer Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, typically starting around midnight to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Additionally, some churches have Christmas Day services in the morning. It’s common for people to attend Mass during these times as part of their Christmas celebrations.

Christmas snacks !

I like Christmas because it creates a festive atmosphere. Decorations, lights, and festive music create a joyful and celebratory ambiance. Christmas often brings loved ones together, strengthening bonds and creating cherished memories.

8 Rules of Love !

What book are you reading right now?

I am currently reading a book of ‘8 Rules of Love’ by Jay Shetty. I became a fan of Jay Shetty after reading ‘Think like a monk’. Here’s the overview of the book ‘8 Rules of Love’.

The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Think Like a Monk offers a revelatory guide to every stage of romance, drawing on ancient wisdom and new science.

Nobody sits us down and teaches us how to love. So we’re often thrown into relationships with nothing but romance movies and pop culture to help us muddle through. Until now.

Instead of presenting love as an ethereal concept or a collection of cliches, Jay Shetty lays out specific, actionable steps to help you develop the skills to practice and nurture love better than ever before. He shares insights on how to win or lose together, how to define love, and why you don’t break in a break-up.

Inspired by Vedic wisdom and modern science, he tackles the entire relationship cycle, from first dates to moving in together to breaking up and starting over. And he shows us how to avoid falling for false promises and unfulfilling partners.

By living Jay Shetty’s eight rules, we can all love ourselves, our partner, and the world better than we ever thought possible.

Always being Cheerful.

What’s the first impression you want to give people?

Smile is the first impression I give to people when come across them. I learned this from tourists and people from western countries.

Dubai attracts more than 1 Million tourists per year. Beautiful beaches, record-breaking attractions and experiences like no other – Dubai is the place to be in 2023. It’s no wonder we’ve been named Tripadvisor’s #1 Most Popular Destination in the World for the second year running. (Source : Visit Dubai)

Whenever I come across any foreign tourist and if i randomly made an eye contact , they give a smile while passing by. That lights up your mood. Imagine you are greeting a person who doesn’t know you. That shows your personality to others.

So next time you put a smile on your face when you come across anyone then will surely benefit you in future. The first impression plays an important role in building relations with the stranger. Whether it is in your career life or personal.

So always make sure to smile. Thank you.

Geography : My favourite subject in school !

world map illustration

What was your favorite subject in school?

Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments.

Geography was my most favorite subject in High school. During school whole subject was covering with information related to different countries in the world. Different cultures, tradition, peoples with information were covered in this topic.

During school days books were the only option where I would learn about the geography of the world.The subject was the combination of Geography and Economics where 32 marks questions consist of geography and rest other related to economics.

I was not much fond of economics as it was about social science that focuses on the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services, and analyzes the choices that individuals, businesses, governments, and nations make to allocate resources.

But now it all make sense now. Today’s government system and everything all based on economics. Elections, Politics is everywhere now.

But all I can say is that I am grateful that I got to learn about the interesting information about the world. Do check my other blogs on


Buying Iphone 14.

Name the most expensive personal item you’ve ever purchased (not your home or car).

There was a time when I would not even think of buying an iPhone. When I was in Higher Secondary School I got my first Java phone Nokia 1800. During my diploma in engineering , I had a black berry 9800 which was a classic phone as that phone had both touchscreen and qwerty keypad options.

As I started receiving stipend of 5000 INR, I got my first ever phone which is Micromax. Little did I know that the storage was only 8 gb of which 2 GB is consumed by apps itself. It was difficult but I managed to use it for 4 years.

Then once I got by first job, I bought Lenovo P1M40a. That phone I still use to watch cricket matches.

And now I bought first iPhone 14. This was the moment where I felt that my life is going good.After all these years of struggle, I am finally earning a decent income to get iPhone. And I pray that in next coming years I will be growing in my career and get something more expensive than smartphone.

Visit to Miracle Garden, Dubai

If you are looking for a natural and peaceful place Dubai, then I suggest you to visit ‘The Miracle Garden‘.

The miracle garden is the world’s largest natural flower garden. The 72,000-square-meter attraction has more than 60 million flowers on display. It is located in the Al barsha south,Dubai Land.

The Miracle Garden was opened on Valentine’s Day in 2013 and now attracts about millions of visitors every year. You ll get to see the blooming different flowers with different shades of colors. Tall structures of horses covered with grasses and Disneyland setup covered with flowers make you guys fall in love with this place.

  • For Adults and seniors – AED 95 (12 years and old)

My favorite part was the Emirates Airbus A380. The aeroplane is decorated with different types of flowers. Also, the Emirates name displayed on the plane has been made of flowers. The turbines keep rotating which give the feel of real aeroplane.

The best time to visit this place is during winter this place is opened only during winter season . You ll get to see the colorful blooming flowers in winter. So next time you plan with your family, then make sure visit this garden. Thank you.

A visit to Hatta dam, Dubai.

bird s eye view of two people canoeing on body of water

If you ever visit plan to visit some best places in Dubai , I’ll recommend you to visit Hatta. Hatta’s main economic factor is tourism and water. Historically the area was able to grow date palms; the fruits were used as a food source, while the tree was used for building material. It has a popular heritage village, including a collection of reconstructed traditional mountain dwellings and is popular for weekend getaways with both people camping in the winter months or staying at the Hatta Fort Hotel.

Hatta Kayak Selfie point.

I visited this place with my team of 15 colleagues and I had the best experience there. Our journey started by picking up my colleagues from different locations around 8.00am. Then we left for Hatta around 9:30 am from Dubai Investment Park 2. It takes around 1 hours and 40 minutes reach at the spot. We carried with us with breakfast mid way so that we don’t get hungry while exploring the beauty of the place.

When we reached there, I noticed tall mountains of rocks which made me thinks that its impossible to climbs. The mountains were perfectly in shape like a triangle ike how I used to draw in school. But, the view was beautiful. At the dam, we got to see the crystal green lake between the mountain range. The bridge was filled with tourists. The place was silent, cool and relaxing.

I never did Kayaking before. This time I decided to try Kayaking ! The Hatta Kayak is a unique tourist destination in Dubai and UAE. The vast lake formed by Hatta Dam and its surrounding mountains is becoming so popular among those who seeks relaxation in a natural place and looks for a new experience of practicing kayak sport in UAE. There were around 100 Kayaks and boats readily available. We 15 persons decided to get into single Kayak each.

The water was calm and the lake was peaceful. We wore life jackets for the safety incase the Kayak flips. You need to maintain correct sitting position and make sure not to tilt on one side. The movement of the row will guide you the course and movement of the Kayak. But it was fun, Once you get hands on it, you ll seamlessly cruise it. That was the best moment in my life.

Scenes near Hatta dam

After exploring the dam and the Kayaking. We sat on a carpet making a rectangle and they served us with the dish name Mandi. The Mandi is served with a big plate of rice mixed with gravy and two half chicken pieces. One fried with different spices and other boiled. A group Of four people ate in one big plate.

We then visited the Hatta Park which is 20 mins drive from the restaurant. Hatta Hill Park is an elevated oasis in Dubai’s exclave town of Hatta. Just a short drive from the region’s heritage village. The green space also includes running tracks, sports fields and a children’s playing field. We played football on the turf which was fenced and explored the view from top of the hill. By exploring these, places our day came to an end and we decided to head back to Jumeira Beach in Dubai.

About my experience, I would recommend you to visit this place one as you ll get to explore the place without tall skyscrapers and digital entertainment like in city. The best time to visit this place is between October – February. As the temperature is cool. While kayaking make sure you put your mobile phones in floated plastic bag so that if you fall inside the lake then you mobile can be safe from drowning. There is a very less chance that you ll get it back as the lake is almost 35 feet deep.
