Market Day at Arabian Ranches 2011

We have already entered the fair (events) season, with the first one being the Arabian Ranches Market Day which was held on the last Friday of October. I was participating in the popular Arabian Ranches Market Day, last year, but this year, my schedule was too tight with the inlaws visiting us from Saudi and all the transformations I am working on at home presently.

 As always the Market Day was excellently organized.  We spend a lovely afternoon finding some amazing stuff and enjoying all the activities organized. Not only did we have over 100 stalls selling clothes, shoes, decoration items, cds, electronics, toys, books, games,  furniture and heaps of many more things, but we also had stalls for games, face painting, rodeo rides and ofcourse tons of more activities. I managed to click a few lovely photos which I am sharing here.  As a community, Arabian Ranches, always amazes me with friendly and mostly helpful residents.

Needless to say, I bought myself a heap of lovely stuff from the table top sales !

 

 

Halloween in Dubai ??

  1. What IS with Halloween ?? I mean, celebrating the devils / demons / witches !! And all in the name of calling it childish costume parties ???
  2. If a muslim man/woman wishes to carry out any of his religious practises in a western country, he is easily targetted as being anti-democratic ! However the very same westerners bring and introduce these weird practises here and we are to just accept it ??? As a muslim, I find it appalling.
  3. As an artist, I am even more appalled, becoz Whats worse is the thorough lack of creativity involved ! I mean, if you look around at the Ranches decorations, its really pitiful. Seems like everything is clearly just bought off the Le Marshe shelves. Sad.

Sharing with you’ll the ghastly celebrations !
