Happy New Year
Having lived in Dubai for 20-something years, it's a bit surreal for me to be frolicking around in the snow. Nevertheless, it's exactly what I did on New Year's Eve. I spent two and a half hours in Ski Dubai, cold and feeling quite naked without a beanie on my head. But it really was a lot of fun and a perfect way to end 2005 (Starbucks never looked so good on my way out). A cup of hot chocolate and an eclair later I was able to feel my fingers again and my ears were slowly begining to come out of hibernation. I should really re-think my big migration plans to Canada which is really one big ski dome in itself. I could barely walk around in a place that's -8C, just imagine if I walk out when it's -40C!

2006 is going to be a good year - my year. Happy New Year to everyone...best wishes and God bless.

We've got a couple of things in common, dahling. I've also spent the bulk of my life here, with only a brief stint out in N.America. And like yourself, I'm also weighing the option of heading westbound permanently.

And then I'm reminded about my fabulous life in Dubai and how good the city has been to me all these years - and it leaves me in a right ol' tizz.

But then I realise, the west offers me a certain freedom and opportunity that I could never achieve in this country. And although I'm charmed with the majesty, allure and materialistic lifestyle, I know there has to be more to life than a little short-term bling.

Hope everything works out for you, and hope you have a wonderful 2006.
