I'm in Abu Dhabi now, on the computer in my dad's office. We were supposed to go out, I think, but there doesn't seem to be much to do here in Abu Dhabi - we already visited most of the places to visit two days ago.
Dubai yesterday was a tad bit more interesting, got some pretty good pictures! I love my genius-inspired shot, taking a picture of the reflection of the Burj Dubai (or was it the Burj al Arab? - whatever, either one hehe) in my sunglasses - which I made my brother put on.
Went for this desert safari thing in Dubai as well, which is basically sitting in a four-wheel drive and the driver going up and down sand dunes. Quite fun, really, but pretty scary when you're going down the sand dune. What else, what else. Oh I got a Henna painting thingy on my hand! It's so cool how the lady did it so quickly. Now the imprint is there and will probably be there for the next two weeks or something uh oh. Haha. Usually people (Islam religion?) do it when they get married, I think? Or something like that. Heh.
Anyway. Oh yes, New Year! Hmm. To tell you the truth, I slept through the transition between 2009 and 2010. Heh. Whaaaaaaaat? I was tired. But that is kinda sorta sad. Ah well. What can you do when most of your friends are half a world away?
That being said, New Year doesn't really feel like a new year for me. In the sense that.. I don't know, it just seems to be a continuation of the previous year. Or something like that. I don't really know how to describe it. But then again, I'm not even really keeping track of the days and dates, so...
OH MY GOSH. Lightbulb moment. REVELATION!! I just realised that I'm going to be T.W.E.N.T.Y. this year. How... old. But then again I only just turned 19 like, 5 days ago, or something like that. I can't be bothered keeping count. =p BUT STILL. Twenty. That's like, TWO DECADES OLD. Ohmygosh. I'm ancient. =/
Okay, I'm really just wasting time until Alastair decides to reply my online messages (MSN).. stupid boy grrr. Haha. Why can't he spend the whole day sitting in front of the computer waiting for me to come online!!! Hmph. Unreasonable much? =p
Right. I'm off to look for other things to do to occupy my time.. probably going out for lunch soon anyway (it's 1.20 PM here in Abu Dhabi). Oh right, and I'm flying off to London tonight! My brother is going to study in Concord College so we're all going with him to help him settle down and whatnot (good excuse for going on holidays).
TTFN, tata for now!
I miss you.
