[1: 889 of 10,000] What Fat Stray Cats Signify About a Country?

Stray Cats in Jordan

Having stray cats in the first place would mean they don’t cage animal but having fat stray cats mean there are a lot of food to be scavenged around.

The photos shared above were taken in Jordan from the recent trip although UAE has the same story, there are lots of stray cats here and Garfield would be so at home in both countries for sure.

Will Garfield entertain either Biryani or Mansaf?

[1: 885 of 10,000] Trusting a Donkey for My Life

In Journal on January 4, 2013 at 8:55 PM

I never ride on a donkey before. They say going to the Monastery of Petra will take about 2 hours by walking (knowing my baby steps I might reach longer) and 30 minutes on a donkey. I want the experience and I don’t want to get so tired so I say here here for a donkey ride. With the spectacular view on the ground, I could only imagine what up ahead is something more grand I supposed.

Petra Donkey Experience 1The owner of the donkey instructed me with three things: (1) lean forward while going uphill, (2) relax, and (3) hold on the saddle. With the word relax, it sure made me a bit nervous; it means the fine animal would be able to sense what I feel and I was being optimistic the moment I rode on it all because I wasn’t expecting what the road looked like.

Petra Donkey Experience 2By the time we started the journey, it was okay. I hold on the saddle so hard. It was comforting to know that they say the donkey knew exactly the way and it knew the shortest way. I was thinking, the owner of the donkey will be holding my rope or he’ll be beside me throughout the journey, no no no I was alone and I guess I just let the donkey do its thing. I didn’t make sound, I didn’t direct it, I just let it walk.

Petra Donkey Experience 3Oh boy, it did know the shortcut of dying young!!! It liked the plane way even if it means it is the edge of the cliff. The way to the top was steep and scary. Going up costs JOD 15.00 and going down cost JOD 5.00 – I was holding to my life going up but I think going down with a donkey is a complete suicidal mission. I was holding my breath for the whole journey!!! I was so scared but I try to calm down, remember Rule No. 2 Relax. I kept saying to my donkey, “Don’t be competitive and just slow down.” I guess the fine animal absorbed my clumsiness because at one point it stumbled but got up just fine like nothing happened! I was in panic at that point but I kept my cool.

The greatest feeling was when I stepped down. Saved!

The view at the top was not disappointing at all but I would probably think a million times before I will ever do it again… trusting a donkey for my life.

Cute Dog

I can’t believe it but I may bring back my love for dogs.

I’ve been seeing 2 beautiful dogs ( not the photo above – actual photo are kept in strictest confidence 😀 ) for 2 straight days with their kind master and I can’t stop liking them.

I may actually overcome my fear of holding them soon. We’ll see, we’ll see!

How can I say “no” to loving them when they are so sweet especially the little white one that comes close to my feet while I am working or gives out a cute bark when I arrive and the big one approaches me when I give him a smile.

[1: 683 of 10,000] In Its Natural Habitat

In Journal on July 14, 2012 at 8:11 PM

I wanted to visit Dubai Atlantis and play with the dolphins, that’s was last year, but after watching a documentary about animals being depressed for being apart from their family and natural habitat, I thought it’s the end of dreaming.

Now, I want to enroll for scuba diving and head to the big happy blue sea and play with the dolphins in their natural habitat.

This photo was taken while I was on my way to the office. Yes really friendly, they are not afraid of people and not afraid to be taken its photo.

One of my favorite things right now is the birds freely walking and flying all over Dubai. They were fed by the people and not cage them. I can hear the birds sing in the morning; it’s a lovely nature in a big city.

Will I ever hold a shark? It's never too late.

Chinese Eyed Fish. I'm watching you watching me!

So far the closest I can get to Shark is at The Dubai Aquarium, Dubai Mall.
