Girls day out

Today I took some time off from home to meet up with my girlfriend, N.  I haven't seen her since I came back from Rome which was like almost 3 weeks ago!  Since she herself had just gotten back from her vacation in the Maldives, we had so much to catch up while spending some 'girl time browsing the mall!






I met N when I moved to Dubai about 7 years ago and slowly we became good friends.  We share the same hometown and even more bizzare, were in the same high-school!  Even though we never met in high-school (she's a couple of years my junior) but that never stopped us from getting along.  On top of that, her husband and Captain are colleague.  Cool, isn't it?

  



Even if N and I are different in many ways, we managed to stay close because we accept each other just the way we are. We do not critisized how we differently decided to live our lives or dress up but instead support each other and celebrate each others fortune and success and in tough time, lend a helping hand and be a family to each other when our own families are so far away from us.




She might not be my best friend and vice versa but I truly appreciate her friendship, time and sincerity and for that I can never thank her enough but hope to be the same to her.




So, what happen whenever me and N meet?  We raid the stores!  And for this I decided to put on something simple and casual, easy for me to get in and out in the fitting room.   After a few hours of browsing and a dozen of phone calls from our homes (yes, the kids they hunt us down whenever we go out) she ended up buying a nice pair of leather jacket, after looking for a perfect one for quite sometime and I came home with a little something for myself too :)

  5. It's wonderful to have a friend like yours. Moving to a new country and leaving behind family and friends is difficult enough. It can be a lonely and bewildering experience. You're both very fortunate to have found each other.
