Encore, une fois!
Ten years ago: We just arrived in Dubai, UAE for my father's last foreign assignment before his retirement. Quite a revelation for me to discover such a liberal city in a region known for its strict Islamic rules.

Five years ago: Still in Dubai, living it up in the grand 'diplobrat' way, happy with traveling, a steady boyfriend, carefree, no worries in the world.

One year ago: Slow job, more time to pamper myself with spa treatments and out of town sojourns, a zero lovelife but that meant less worries too.

Yesterday: was my cleaning the house day. Mopped, dusted, cleaned the 2 aircon filters & the electric fans (would you believe I have 5 fans in this loft - no wonder my electricity bill is equivalent to the salary of an executive!), floor waxed the stairs and my most hated cleaning chore - making the bathroom spanking clean! Evening - I relaxed by watching "RockStar:INXS" on Star World and "CSI" on AXN.

Today: I've responded to several personal emails. I am doing some work online (taking a break to blog this) Tonight's TV fare includes "Rockstar:INXS", "Lost" and the finale of "The Apprentice" Season 2 (I already know who won but still ...)

Tomorrow: I need to get some banking transactions done in the morning, grocery shopping for the weekend and next week, schedule my derma appointment and maybe head off to my parents' place for the weekend.
