eid 2007 (part 1)

First day of Eid fell on a Friday, and it was announced that there will be a two day holiday so our holiday was Saturday and Sunday, plus the Friday so 3-days holidays kami !!!

We've planned to go to out-of-town for the week-end. Yani (Mama Aleen's eldest son) and wife, Aizel invited us over to their place in Ras Al Khaimah - second to the last emirate of the UAE. I was surprised coz we arrived earlier than I expected - thanks to the new Emirates Road, made traveling easier for us staying in Dubai to visit the other emirates.

So ang naging plano, Friday morning head to RAK, tapos pahinga tapos punta sa beach, overnight dun, ihaw-ihaw, kainan, games, at kung anu-ano pang scheduled activities na prepared by Aizel and friend niya. Next morning swim sa dagat tapos head back sa bahay, have breakfast, freshen up (dami yata naming naka-line up magshower!!). tapos, punta sa shooting range. kaso mo nagkatulugan na! paano ba naman, 2 am na nag ge-game pa kami ano! at me nag continue pa nang bbq - chicken wings, hotdogs, kaya naman after the games - tsibugan na ulit, sama na ang kantiyawan ulit ng mga kapalpakan sa mga games.... madaya daw kami (?) hehehe kami kasi nanalo eh.. pero later na yun... sa lahat nang nag-camp dun kami pinaka-maingay yata :)

On the way to their place we made a stop at the Al Manar Center coz they have to buy some stuff from Carrefour. While the others do the shopping, me and my friend, Mai, went around and took some photos outside the mall.


si ako... o di ba me dolphin pa raw !


wala lang - aakapin ko sana yung puno - hehehe....hiya lang ako kasi me dumating na mga arabo at patungo sa amin - nagpapa picture din - kasama daw kami ?!?!?! hindi siguro ano!!!

mai - posing at the back of the mall facing the lagoon.

pagdating sa bahay ng mag-asawa, siempre gutom na, so galit-galit muna habang kumakain. kaya nga walang litrato kasi lahat abala sa pagkain :) tapos pahinga muna. marami nang tao sa bahay nang dumating kami kaya naman abalang-abala ang mag-asawa sa pagluluto. meron pa pala sa kuwarto na nagpahinga muna at galing sa duty - mga nurses kasi. kaya naman nang handa nang lumarga - nag 2 trip pa yung van na hired namin from dubai. ang saya-saya kasi kalog naman sila (although di yata talaga maalis na me "kj") parang matagal ng magkakakilala kung magbiruan - tawanan...kantiyawan.... masaya....

first pics taken around 5pm at the beach. as expected, marami nang tao and dami na ring nakatayong tents. siempre nag-save na kami ng puwesto namin, labas ang mga tent at tinayo na. first time na nag-pitch ng tent ang ibang kasama namin at kakatuwa, pabale-balentuwang yung tent! hehehe... pati yung aso - remember the doggie we found? " husky" ang name niya ngayon at kasama namin... pati siya excited sa mga tawanan habang itinatayo yung tent


ang tropa from dubai: dexter, mama aleen, si ako, mai, vangie, cora, ann, jo, may-may (w/the sulo)


the same tropa minus may-may, but now with husky - "the doggie who wouldn't bark" !!!


while waiting for the others ...


si cora sa loob ng tent namin... hmm... balak na naman matulog....

hohummm, time out muna ako - antok na me.. aga ko pa ring nagising kanina. kung bakit naman kapag walang pasok, dun ako maagang nagigising.... :(

abangan ang kasunod ha...
