Travel: dubai - the rendered city

Only when I pulled up this shot from my camera onto my screen I realized how significantly industrial and digital is the look of Dubai. On our way to Bangladesh, we had a day long layover in the city and I managed to take some snaps while sweat dripped down my back in the humid 40 centigrade dusty heat. So high the dust was that day, that buildings got lost in the horizon as if there was fog. Most images looked to me as if it was a three dimensional rendering. There is hardly any green. Everything is paved. Roads look just recently painted. It seemed like I stepped into my architecture school computer screen. The food was mouthwatering since you will find any cuisine there. Also very interesting was the mix of people. NY's melting pot is nothing to the mix of Dubai. You will see a burqa clad woman right next to one in a bikini and that is not the interesting part. What is amazing is that nobody is judging no one. Nobody is staring at the other. Everyone from all over the world are walking past each other happily. I will stop here and let you see just a few shots from all the frenzied ones for you to get a glimpse of the sky-scraping city.

Food: spicy eggplant

Yes, I have been away from posting...but believe me when I say that I am trying my best to come up with new posts every week. I have been busy with Ramadan ending and the series of celebrations that followed after that. Here I am trying to keep onto my promise of posting more vegetarian recipes. I am not a big fan of eggplants, but this recipe makes it quite delicious. And it hardly takes time to cook.

Product Review: Firmoo Spectacles Review

I was contacted by Firmoo to receive a complementary pair of glasses (spectacles or sunglasses), and I thought what an excellent opportunity. I will jot down some simple facts that really enhanced my experience with Firmoo,

*Firmoo is a online company. Their customer service was excellent which was only done through emails. I didn't even have to call and wait on hold to ask a simple question.
*They sell prescription glasses and sunglasses. There are a lot of choices from plastic, titanium, mixed material, reading, prescription, bifocal, computer, progressive, retro, designer and the list goes on and on. 
*The website is very interactive and informational in directing the purchase to find the perfect match. Personal photos can be uploaded and the glasses can be tried on in a fun virtual manner.
*The shipping was very quick. 
*The glasses came with a wonderful atlas themed case, along with a cloth bag, glass cleaning wipe, and extra nose pads.
*The glasses are very sturdy yet wonderfully lightweight and elegant. 
*Prices are affordable and with sales and giveaways it is even lower.
