Mural Culture

Murals are painted art on a wall, ceiling or other permanent surface. Murals are usually in harmony with the architecture of the building or wall it is painted on. In the days of civil unrest, artists used murals as a means to speak their mind. It soon also became a way to vandalize property, but today…

Standing Tall

A beautiful view of Burj Khalifa from the base of the magnificent building. The tallest man made structure in the world at a total height of 829.8 m (2,722 ft) will soon be over-shadowed by the Creek Tower that is under construction (estimated height of at least 1,000 m or 3,300 ft). Burj Khalifa was designed by…

Gastronomic Delights

      When you travel outside your country, much like outside your own city, you will realize the true meaning of migration. Food is a great leveler, and people who turn to greener pastures for their sense of success home food becomes comfort-food. In fact, you realize how local cuisines from far away lands…

Up In The Air

I’ll be out of my mind and you’ll be out of ideas pretty soon. So let’s spend the afternoon in a cold hot air balloon. Leave your jacket behind. Lean out and touch the tree tops over town. I can’t wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down. ~Owl City, Ocean Eyes

Golden Rain

Many years have passed since those summer days, among the fields of barley See the children run as the sun goes down, among the fields of gold You’ll remember me when the west wind moves, upon the fields of barley You can tell the sun in his jealous sky, when we walked in fields of…

Starry Nights

  I seem to have a strange affection for boat-shaped buildings. First there was the Marina Bay Sands (Singapore) that caught my fancy, and then this seven-star affair. For some strange reason, I could never remember it being called Burj Al Arab, it was always the yacht shaped building for me. Before you think two…

Standing Tall

  Don’t believe in all that you’ve been told, The sky’s the limit you can reach your goals. No one knows just what the future holds, There ain’t nothing you can’t be, There’s a whole world at your feet. I said reach! Climb every mountain Reach for the moon, Follow that rainbow and your dreams…

No Wrong Turns

There are no wrong turns, only unexpected paths. ~Mark Nepo Life is incredibly unpredictable, and it shakes you out of your sleepwalking slumber when you least expect it. We tend to become so familiar with routes we take everyday, that be it night or day, you’d know exactly where to go, and how to reach…

Private Haven

To escape and sit quietly on the beach – that’s my idea of paradise. ~Emilia Wickstead

Alcohol-free Beer

The last few days I spend taking in the sights and sounds of Dubai (locally refers to as the capital of Kerala). Being a theological state that embraced Islam as its official religion, finding alcohol in UAE is rather difficult. However there is root beer available that you can enjoy, sans the addiction or high….
