Dubai Cola

(click to enlarge)

I took this pic last October 22, 2011 on a canteen of a driving centre in Dry Docks, Dubai UAE. I wanted just to have a bottled water when I saw this cola drink inside the refrigerator. I was like, really, Dubai Cola? So I grabbed one and click first before opening it. Ahhhh, twas great, the fact the its main ingredient is from dates. You could really taste the true flavor of dates with a mix of sparkling soda effect inside your thirsty mouth. The new Dubai Cola, grab one one now!

Did you know: that dates provide a wide range of essential nutrients, and are a very good source of dietary potassium; the sugar content of ripe dates is about 80%; the remainder consists of protein, fiber, and trace elements including boron, cobalt, copper, fluorine, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc; and Muslims break fast in the evening meal of Ramadan, it is traditional to eat a date first?

Foggy Fog Fog Road

One foggy morning all over in Dubai UAE. This one was in Sheikh Zayed Road taken with my bb mobiling on my way to work. There are times that roads are covered with thick fogs  which causes pile up.

Did you know: that fog forms when the difference between temperature and dew point is generally less than 2.5 °C or 4 °F? And that begins to form when water vapor condenses into tiny liquid water droplets in the air? Source: wikipedia.org

Pic was taken last October 12, 2011, before these little sneakers were brought home by a friend and handed to my Little Man who is still in the Philippines while this blog is posted.

Did you know: that sneaker collectors, are called "Sneakerheads", use sneakers as fashionable items and artistically-modified sneakers can sell for upwards of $500? Source: wikipedia.org

The Place for Worship

This is the Al Ghurair Mosque, taken from a window of our former place in Al Satwa, Dubai UAE at 5:45 pm 2nd of September 2011. Almost every prayer time, this mosque is filled with Muslim devotees.
I am always fascinated with architecture, and in this one, I love to see how evenly designed those domes are and how visible the minaret is.

Did you know: that the earliest mosques were built without minarets, the call to prayer was performed elsewhere; hadiths relay that the Muslim community of Madina gave the call to prayer from the roof of the house of Muhammad, which doubled as a place for prayer? Source: wikipedia.org
