Hey everyone! Bring on the holidays!! I am off work until next week and plan on getting some serious R & R during the next few days. Eid at last! I haven't had a holiday since .... 23rd of July weekend? Before I sign off, I'd better warn you against going out anytime after 8 p.m today, tomorrow and Tuesday. The streets are crazy, the traffic is nuts, and it's just not worth it. If you need to buy stuff for Eid, go out at 9 a.m. Oh, and if you're an expat and have noticed signs popping up all over Salalah with photos of semi-dignified looking men on them, it's Majlis Al Shura elections time and all those photoshopped men are candidates. I've never heard of any of them before, so they'll have to earn my vote. I'll probably end up voting for Khalid Al Haribi, the only candidate with a Twitter, YouTube AND Facebook account. Campaigning in Oman is moving to a whole new level :)


Off for now! Need to plan my home goddess Iftar menu for the fam. How are you spending Eid?


  1. You right it's very crowded these days.....

  2. It looks that Al Haribi got some outstanding people out there..

    I won't vote for anyone cuz I don't know any of the candidates. I'm afraid I don't trust the educational qualifications they're bragging about because I know sometimes they mean nothing when it comes to Dhofari men.

    wa Allah yustur! I mean I'm worried about Oman..

    I love the pic. Eid mubarak.

  3. Eid Mubarak Nadia!
