Handling Love in Dubai and Beyond :-)
Well, handling romantic and love situation at times may look to be very tricky and sometimes difficult to handle but following some basic steps could be very useful!! :-)
Handling Love :-)
If you find yourself in love with someone who does not
love you, be gentle with yourself. There is nothing
wrong with you. Love just didn't choose to rest in the
other person's heart.
If you find someone else in love with you and you don't
love her/him, feel honoured that love came and called at
your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot
return. Do not take advantage, do not cause pain.
How you deal with love is how you deal with you, and
all our hearts feel the same pains and joys, even if
our lives and ways are different.
If you fall in love with another, and she falls in love
with you, and then love chooses to leave, do not try to
reclaim it or to assess blame, Let it go. There is a
reason and there is a meaning. You will know in time.
Remember that you don't choose love. Love chooses you.
All you can really do is accept it for all its mystery
when it comes into your life. Feel the way it fills you
to overflowing, then reach out and give it away.
Give it back to the person who brought it alive in you.
Give it to others who deem it poor in spirit.
Give it to the world around you in anyway you can.
This is where many lovers go wrong. Having been so long
without love, they understand love only as a need.
They see their hearts as empty places that will be
filled by love, and they begin to look at love as
something that flows to them rather than from them.
The first blush of new love is filled to overflowing,
but as their love cools, they revert to seeing their
love as need. They cease to be someone who generates
love and instead become someone who seeks love.
They forget that the secret of love is that it is a
gift, and that it can be made to grow only by giving it
Remember this, and keep it to your heart. Love has its
own time, its own seasons, and its own reason for
coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it, or
reason it into saying. You can only embrace it when it
arrives and give it away when it comes to you.
But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the
heart of your lover, there is nothing you can do and
there is nothing you should do. Love always has been
and always will be a mystery.
Be glad that it came to live for a moment in your life.
Don't deny love just only you don't want to be hurt...
2nd Hand Bookshop
If you love reading and can't stand the expensive malls in Dubai, you should go to the "House of Prose". There are 2 shops in Dubai.
One is on Jumeirah Beach Road, in the Jumeirah Plaza (when you get in the main entrance, walk all the way to the back, and turn left...it's almost on the exit of the little mall)
The second one is at the Ibn Battuta Mall (A bit farther from the city, you should only go here if you are staying nearby). It's harder to find, as the entrance is actually outside of the mall. You have to go to the last parking (after Geant supermarket) and walk to the end of the building and it's just on the corner.
ON OTHER GREAT SHOPPING EXPERIANCE!
150 LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL BRANDS UNDER ONE ROOF! Audio Vidio, Bags, Books, Cards, Coffee
Shop, Cosmetics, Crystals, Electronics, Entertainment, Fashion Accessories, Footwear, Handicrafts, Houshold, Ladies wear, Luggage Parfumes and the list goes on...
Make yourself at home...
Many moons ago, there once existed a small, bland & boring sports bar on the ground floor of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. One day, Dubai's glitz, posh & sensual interior designers got their hands on the little sports bar and "voila!": the Apartment Lounge & Club was born.
With a capacity for 400 people this is just large enough for fun, and small enough to seem somewhat cosy and exlusive... and we danced happily ever after...
On a weekend (Thursday & Friday evening) mostly Dubai's beautiful people, the bored & wealthy & also the wanna-be's come here for drinks & a good time. But on a Wednesday, be prepared to step into a time-machine of cheesiness, for it's 80s night :-)
I love 80s music - it's perfect for dancing & singing along (come on, admit it... you know the words ;-) I've been to loads of "retro-parties" but this was truly one of the best I've experienced in a long time...
Even though this is a 5-star hotel, even though many of the patrons looked like fashion models, the atmosphere was relaxed & extremely fun! Nobody gave anyone any disapproving looks, 90% of the patrons were women & half of the men were gay. Literally EVERYONE was on the dance floor immediately.
There's something fantastic but also something universally weird about a group of women in the 21st century shrieking like teenagers, as soon as they hear the first few beats of a Wham! song... haha!
Wednesdays: "REWIND" - Ladies Night & 80s Night!
No entrance free and 2 free cocktails for ladies from 09:00pm - 02:00am. Try the Berry-Fizz-Martini; it's gorgeous.
There are various special events nights throughout the week, and this club has also seen a few of the internationally famous "Miss Moneypenny's" Nights as well :-) Smart-Casual Club wear. Designer T-shirts, jeans & trainers accepted. No sandals, no shorts, nothing "too worn & torn". Make a little bit of an effort!
I've also been here on other evenings, and the DJ plays a mixture of funky and deep house music.
Opening Hours: Tuesdays to Saturdays, 08:00pm - 03:00am.
You can easily get dinner in every street of Dubai. You can choose between local food in little cafe or in Mc'Donalds, in Wuick or in Chinese restaurant. There are so many cafes and restaurants that it seems it is big competitive and prices are not high in my opinion.
