My day started happier than the usual because I finally completed again an 8-hour sleep. Thanks to the Islamic holiday (i.e. Prophet Muhammad’s birthday), it saved my (and everybody else’s) longings whatever those are. While we planned to visit the recently opened humongous Yas Waterworld today, we postponed it for things that matter more as of the moment — sleep, listening to Morning Rush podcasts (particularly listening to the Badtrip sa School babbler) while munching on home cooked barbecue and sisig, random chats, and more.
The weather has also discouraged the driver in me. In my 5th year in the UAE (wow, imagine that!), this is the first time we have braced this much of fog weeklong. Like yesterday, the traffic lights can hardly be seen as I drove little J to school and then to work. While in the office parking (the one in the open area), it was eerily funny that we were startled by people waving/ walking towards us. We practically looked like angels bursting out from the clouds-like fog. At work, some colleagues impossibly lost their way to the office due to wrong turns, some preferred not to drive.
With this kind of weather, why go out when you are surrounded by the people and things that you really need in life.
