REMENISCING.. MEMOIRS...

THIS WAS LAST APRIL-JUNE 2006

(5 yrs bgo ko naisipang ishare.. hahaha=p)

Middle East.. ( Al Ain and Dubai UAE)

I'm only 16 by that time.. and all i know is play... play... enjoy.. enjoy...

I'm with my cousin "Ana" to enjoy the gift vacation from mother dearest..

At kasama nmin si mommy during this travel to Dubai

i dont have lot of pictures... (coz' i dont love camera at that tym.. hahaha)

1st stop over - Hongkong (for the connecting flight in Cathay Pacific from Philippines to Dubai

I regret this moments.. (kasi ala ako pictures sa hongkong eh!! =( dont know why i didnt took any picture of ours!!)

First time to experience Airport Express Train and MTR ( Hongkong's version of MRT.. . pero sobrang bilis nya eh!!unlike ours..)

Free Duty ( Hongkong's version of Duty Free?!? =p)

2nd stop over

- DUBAI AIRPORT -

Then, sinundo kme ng stepdad ko to bring us to AL AIN, ABU DHABI UAE. (where we're going to stay =)

Actually, we dont have tour guide, we dont have itinerary per day... just gala, bahay, gala, mall hopping with family members..

We went to:

1.== AL AIN PALACE MUSEUM==
This palace has so many rooms, sa dami,na malilito ka kung ano at alin uunahin mo.. hahaah..
sometimes, ana & I would argue where to go first (dito muna tau!! hindi dito nlng, cge jn nlng muna!heheh!)
BUt i think napuntahan naman namin all the rooms, we just dont have all the pics to post it in here..

(this pics are just the remnants of our experience!!)

- the picture speaks itself; this room is for social gathering.. for sheik's visitors... as one of the caretaker told us.
[di ata kme pinapasok dito na may shoes, but nung tumalikod ung caretaker, we sneak in with our shoes!! hahahah!)

antique well.. not a wishing well.. =p

antique well.. not a wishing well.. =p

- super old well.. actually wala n siyang water.. and it was filled sand and soil... its just for display purposes.. near this well is the kitchen
where you could see extra large pots and pans! [hope i could find that picture]

- inside the museum hallways leading to the different rooms are the pictures and family tree of the Sheik's family
