I am Cristina.
I got married to my boyfriend of 6 years in 2008. Since my ultimate destination always involves fine, white sand and deep blue waters, we decided to wed on a picturesque island in El Nido, Palawan. What was planned as intimate celebration with a few family and friends proved to be, as they said, “the best wedding they’ve ever experienced!”
We quietly settled in a nice home with a sprawling garden at the foot of a mountain. Fresh air, exotic birds, and a lot of greenery were abundant all year round.
My hubby continued with his passion of law. And I opened a home spa. We decided on a long honeymoon. My hubby and I have toured so many countries, sometimes just the two of us, other times with our families and friends. All these travelling have made us Shangri-La Golden Circle Diamond members and Hilton Honors Diamond members, and now we can’t wait to use our points 🙂
After a couple of years, I gave birth to our first baby. He’s a squiggly, snuggly, happy (and messy) baby that seems to have inherited our excitement for the new and unknown.
Four months ago, my hubby accepted an expat posting with the Middle East arm of his company. So here we are now, new and eager to explore Dubai and it’s neighboring countries.
In this blog, you will find several posts on moving to Dubai, which for me would have been helpful had I known them before.
You’ll also get a lot of reviews on resorts, hotels, restaurants, and the many new places my family and I will soon discover.
This diary is an attempt to document our new lives in this Arabian emirate.
Feel free to leave a comment, ask me a question, or give me suggestions.
