Time flies so fast that I didn’t notice it’s just four days and my parents are both coming back home after spending their vacation in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Two of my brothers are both working in Dubai and our eldest brother’s family is with them as well. My sister in law gave birth to a healthy bouncing boy last February of which was why my mama traveled first then papa went there last April 6 as well.
So, yeah time is super fast and they both had enjoyed their stay there with their grandchildren. They still have not taken the metro train in Dubai because they usually travel by car so today, mama said they’ll try to hop in to check it. When I was still working in Dubai, the metro train is my best friend, everyday it takes me from home to work, everyday I get to have a view of Burj Khalifa and the entire city of Dubai.
Anyways, since they are indeed coming home, I have asked them to bring me some of my favorite stuffs from Dubai.
- Paratha – I don’t know if you are familiar with this, well perhaps my Indian friends here are quite familiar with it but its a kind of bread which is really cheap and I remember eating it whenever I am almost broke. My brother and I had added nutella and banana slices on it which turned out really good.
- Dates – This is an edible fruit which is really healthy and full of nutrients. Unfortunately, it is rarely sold here in the Philippines so I always ask them to buy packs for me. It is best to add this to my oat meals to add extra flavor and texture.
- Alokozay Green Tea – I drink coffee but I prefer tea. And I love Alokozay’s green tea but it isn’t available here in the country. So I also requesting them to buy me boxes of these. They are pretty cheap in Dubai so I guess they’ll be buying me four boxes!
- Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab Figurines – Well this is because I have not bought one and I regret not buying so now I am asking them to send me two of these figurines.
I am still thinking of the other stuffs of course chocolates are SOPs so I didn’t add them on the list.
