I’m so happy today.Knocked off from work early. While waiting for the bus, I saw this lovely sky. I was so lucky enough to capture it.Why? Here in UAE, it is very seldom that we see clouds in the sky, most of the time it is just simply clear blue sky.
In this area, you will find the polyclinic of the Tawam Hospital and the Faculty of Health and Science-UAE University, about few steps away from the Main Hospital Building,VIP and Royal Building.
Word of the day: samaa is the arabic word for sky.
You will find this along Khalifa Ibn Zayed Street (street 135). It is a statue of Sheikh Zayed with four palm trees. As you can see , the statue is fully covered and adorned with colorful lights in preparation for UAE National Day Celebration on December 2. Two weeks or a week before the UAE NAtional Day, you will find the roundabouts, selected palm trees and gardens of Al Ain are adorned with colorful lights, usually with the pan arab colors.
Word of the day: yawm or yo'um is the arabic word for day.
Been to Al Jimi Mall yesterday night with hubby.It's pay day and we decided to treat ourselves. Of course I pampered myself with clicking for some nice sceneries and streets of Al Ain as Eid Al Adha celebration is just around the corner. Clicking is such a satisfying relaxation technique.
I have seen these stone camels for the nth time and never bothered to appreciate its uniqueness, but this time around, I decided to clicked my camera to share it with you.Nowadays, I appreciate even the little things around me.
Maqam has stone deers whilst Al Jimi Mall has stone camels.
Word of the day: jamal is the arabic word for camel.
Have a nice day ahead fellow bloggers. Maasalam(a)!
While wandering around the hospital gardens, I saw these birds and as usual I clicked my camera for a memento. They looked ordinary but these are migratory birds. During the colder months, usually from October to January, I often see them and hear them chirping. From the hospital gardens, roundabouts, date trees, downtown Al Ain and Green Mubazzarah...they can be everywhere.
By the way, falcon is the national bird of UAE and it symbolizes force and courage. One of these days, i will post an entry about the falcon.
Word of the day: tayr is the arabic word for bird.
Its design is quite obvious.Mosque is the house of worship of our Muslim brothers and sisters. You will find these fences along Central district in then Sheikha Salama Mosque Roundabout which was replaced with a three-lane bricks road with traffic lights monitored by radar.
Word of the Day: Sheikh or Shaikh is an arabic word for elderly male members of a tribe or a term of respect, it is comparable to elder in English language. Shaikha or Sheikha is the term for elderly female leader. UAE rulers are Sheikhs including their offsprings whereas in Kuwait they are called emirs.
Al Ain is known for its wonderful zoo where you can find the different kind of animals, of different family..be it aves, mammals or reptiles.
These deers are one of the symbolic representations of Al Ain City. You will find these along Al Maqam District just right after the Twam Roundabout. The landmark in this area is Tawam Hospital, the Oncology Center of UAE; A JCI (Joint Commission International) accredited facility and affiliated with Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Word of the day: maasalam is the arabic word for goodbye. We say maasalam to bid goodbye to a male person and we say maasalama (take note of the letter a after the word maasalam) to bid goodbye to a female person.
Dwar Al Baladiya means the municipality roundabout. Dwar is an arabic word which means roundabout, Al is The and baladiya is municipality.
You will find this beautiful roundabout along Al Jimi district of Al Ain City where in the government buildings and offices are located. It is about 5 to 10 minutes drive from my place; the Al Mutaredh District near Dwar Jabal. There are few hotel apartments nearby and Al Jimi Mall is about 5 minutes drive from this roundabout.
On our way home, my hubby and I decided to checkout the ongoing road renovation and construction along the Baladiya district. I decided to take some pictures and share it with you.
Hey, this is your nurse on call, allow me to share my photos. I have to warn you that this click and shoot thing of mine are imperfectly captured by an equally imperfect and frustrated photographer. Am doing this just to satisfy my imperfectly perfect desire to appreciate every pixels of my photos.
There you go...enjoy! I hope that you will appreciate my imperfect photos as much as I do. Have an incredibly perfect day to all of you.
