It is really tiring moving from one apartment to another and this is my 5th apartment after living a decade in Dubai. I move almost every 2 years, it seems like a thing here, but this is the place that my sissy and I made it our own style. I love going home to it.

  1. It’s brand new yet not very expensive. Who doesn’t love to be the first person to use the bathtub and toilet? I enjoy my relaxing lavander salt bathe.
  2. I wake up and sleep with Burj Khalifa view.
  3. It’s very close to Dubai Mall (my fave go-to because of the Emirates miles earned every time I shop) and City Walk neighborhood.
  4. It’s a spacious one-bedroom apartment with its own laundry room and a balcony. It has its built-in closet too.
  5. Our mirrors are all fixed on the wall.
  6. Shelves were installed, yes, I’ve put holes in the walls, that I definitely need to ensure they are made up when it’s time to leave.
  7. We can finally use our oven again because the unit is ready for the high voltage installation. We have roasted chicken that was well-brined too!
  8. I felt so luxurious adding a half-glass cover at the bathroom instead of using a shower curtain.
  9. Our indoor plants have grown from three to nine including a succulent that my sissy allowed me to buy finally, a tall Dracaena that draws the eyes up, and we got pretty cool pots from West Elms.
  10.  I also like the dining table that we got from Ikea.

The apartment isn’t too perfect. It would have been better if the tiles’ colors and design in the bathroom sink is not black and yellow, or the installed bedroom airconditioning unit is a larger one, or that I have to sage the bedroom for three consecutive days to keep the lingering heavy energy out, or that some things they’ve overly done that feels like compensating to the things that were totally wrong… there’s that but the good far outweighs the bad so I am really happy with the new apartment. I felt so at home.

What’s your favorite home ever?
