Hey Guys
Hope everything is well with you.
Right now I’m sitting in our Crew Standby lounge at Headquarters waiting for a potential flight.

As you may have read in the news, a Volcano erupted yesterday in Bali, and the airport closed immediate due to ashes and such in the air. I was actually supposed to go to Bali right now, but my flight was cancelled and instead I have a night of mystery ahead of me. Basically I could end up anywhere in the world as of right now, or back in my bed by 5am ๐Ÿ˜ด.
I have a standby shift of four hours where I can just hang around. In this lounge we have sofa chairs, computers and a black out room for sleeping.
I have actually never been in this quiet sleeping room. I would feel so stressed knowing they can call me any minute and I have to rush to the plane. I would be so confused waking up to that call haha. I think I’ll stay awake.
I had a three hour nap before I came here so sitting here till 4am if I don’t get a flight isn’t too tiring. It’s like a night out partying right? Haha.
I got myself some snacks for these four hours and I’m also free to go to the cafe if I want. As long as I have my phone with me and I can pick up as soon as they call.

I got my December schedule, not that exciting but I’ll post about that later because it’s not December yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just wanted to wish you all a great uuuhh, Tuesday(?)... night, and I hope you’ll sleep really well while I sit here and roll my thumbs ๐Ÿค“

Where in the world do you think I might end up? Personally I’m hoping for Europe!

‘ello loves!

Current position is that I’m laying in my hotel bed in London and being lazy! Nothing better right? I just had a huge hotel breakfast and now I’m watching The Holiday (Favorite movie!!!!!) whilst wearing my Christmas PJs.

Yesterday I had the best room service of my 3 year hotel living life!! It was spectacular. I ordered the amazing Burrata and Prosciutto starter followed by Spaghetti Vongole. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ words cant describe. I think I’ll have the same today haha.

I’m starting to feel stressed now that December is approaching quicker than quick. I wanna do one of those 24-gifts advent calendar for my man. Not just a chocolate one, but I actually wanna buy 24 small gifts and wrap them. Any ideas what those 24 gifts could be for a man? I know I gotta get started if I’m gonna be able to find these 24 before December is here. Stress!
Also I have ZERO decorations because my lovely man decided (accidentally) to throw them all out after last years Christmas. We had the most beautiful ornaments and even one important boot ornament I’ve had since I was an itty bitty little girl. Oh I was so sad. Men....

Please write any ideas you have for small gifts. I don’t want them to be expensive so anything affordable is good with me.

Have a continued great Tuesday everyone ๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿผ

It’s been a few days now since I blogged last, but I haven’t had much happening lately.

My trip to Manila was great, spent three hours in the beauty salon at Mall of Asia just getting pampered! One of my favorite things to do. I also had about three portions of Chicken Adobo in less than 2 days. I just love it! So good!

Yesterday I went to the beach in Jebel Ali, in the outskirts of Dubai. We went there when the sun had set to bbq and hang out with friends. It’s actually quite chilly in Dubai now, so I regret not bringing a sweater. Once we got the fire started it was all good and no more shivers! ๐Ÿ˜„
I actually didn’t take any pictures because I was so in the moment just enjoying the company and the food, so you’ll have to forgive me. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Today was just spent doing lovely tasks such as cleaning the whole house, making food and soon I gotta go do some food shopping at Dubai Mall. I need to buy supplies for Tony as well (my cat) since he is out of litter and soon food as well.

Tony is obsessed with this grey backpack we use when we travel. It’s become his comfort zone for some reason. It doesn’t matter if it’s laying on the floor, in the bathroom, under the bed or wherever, he will always be found on that backpack. And it’s the most adorable thing you’ll ever see!

Have a great Saturday everyone. I won’t be putting on my dancing shoes tonight. Movies night always comes first! Haha

Hey lovely people!

Today I’ll be traveling to Manila as a passenger. In Manila I’ll stay for 2 nights before I work the flight back to Dubai. It’s not everyday you get to relax while getting full pay so you bet I’ll enjoy it to the max here in business class. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Anyone been to Manila? I’ve been once before but all I did was go to Mall of Asia and order Chicken Adobo from room service. How can food be so good?! I looooove Chicken Adobo. If you haven’t tried it please do.. sooo good ๐Ÿ˜‹

The flight is 7.5 hours long so hopefully I’ll have time to both sleep a bit in the flat bed and watch some movies. But first, breakfast!

I’ll talk to you guys later,

๐Ÿ˜˜

Hey guys! Lovely to see you again, haha.

I’m all better now, just a bit of sniffles left so today I worked a flight to Muscat, Oman. It was a quick turnaround so I came back to Dubai around noon.
My plan was to go to the pool and cool off, but I ended up passing out on the couch. I was soooo tired! ๐Ÿ˜ด

The plans for tonight is the cinema with mi Amor. He’s been dying to see Thor, so finally we have time to go see it. I’m mostly excited about the popcorn actually.
In Dubai the popcorn has all different kinds of flavor. My favorite mix is Caramel and Pizza flavor. Sweet and savory at the same time and just a lovely gourmet combination.. ๐Ÿ˜‚ you can also choose from Cheddar and salt. I miss the butter popcorn they have in the states but until we move back to San Diego I’ll enjoy my pizza poppies ๐Ÿ˜‹

Has anyone here seen Thor yet? It’s not my kind of movie, I mostly enjoy chick flicks, true stories, romance, drama... but not so much action. Let’s see!

Also I’m in full Autumn mode here in Dubai. As the weather cools down (I mean 30 Celsius average is cool compared to almost 50 right? ๐Ÿ™ƒ) I’m loading up with scented candles, hot apple cider, sweatsuits, socks, blankets and movies to keep the cosy feeling alive. And I more than love it! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‚

Fingers crossed this movie is good! Take care

Good evening from Dubai!

I made it back safely despite my cold! Yes I decided not to call sick, and instead push through so I could get home to my family.

It was a rough 9 hours. I sat on the plane with a whole box of tissues and I used special earplugs for landing. I was so nervous but thank god my ears didn’t block.

My cold is still very much living in my body, so unfortunately I’m gonna have to call sick for my flight to Guangzhou tomorrow morning. There is no way I can handle another flight that long while being this sick. I’ve been there before so it’s not too much of a loss for me.

Needless to say I didn’t do anything in Singapore except eat, sleep and watch movies. Typical sickness style for me ๐Ÿ˜†

I came home this morning at 8am and woke up at 4pm. Tonight will be spent with my man on the couch watching series and drinking tea. I ordered a burger from five guys when I woke up and oh yum! That hit the spot!

I hope everyone will have a great Friday night, and if you don’t feel well like me, TAKE CARE!

Isn’t this view just great?
I just wanted to show you the colorful sky we had tonight, unfiltered! It’s not often in Dubai that you get to see these amazing colors because it’s always hazy here.

Hey Guys,

Currently in Singapore where I landed last night. It was a smooth flight and I felt fine the whole way. After landing however I couldn’t stop sneezing and blowing my nose. I felt so congested, and had such a hard time sleeping.

Waking up this afternoon I had a sore throat, congested nose and extremely itchy ears! If you don’t know, itchy ears are signs of an infection creeping, yikes!

I got out of bed and went down to the pharmacy in the attached mall to the hotel I’m staying in. I got some medication for congestion and some weird Asian oil to relieve headaches and congestion as well.

Also another fact for you is don’t ever fly when you have a cold. I did that twice and twice it ended badly.

However I don’t wanna call sick today because I wanna go home. I don’t like to be sick in another country, although I’m glad I’m in Singapore and not China or some other country where they barely speak English.
I wanna go home! I don’t know if I should take the chance and fly home, or stay another day and see how it turns out. For me it feels strange to call sick for just having a cold, because everyone works with their cold if you have a normal office job. Since my job is 40.000 ft up in the air it brings a whole new set of challenges, and sometimes you have to call sick for just having a silly common cold.
Looks like I might stay in Singapore another night and hope my sore throat and congestion approves. I don’t wanna be stuck here for a week!

Anybody has any natural remedies in their back pocket? I got a fresh vitamin C juice boost from a juice bar in the mall, but if you have any other tips please let me know!

This medicine kind of smells like Tiger Balm or a Vicks Stick. Love it!

Hey Guys!
Right now I’m sitting in Starbucks at Dubai Mall enjoying a nice warm coffee. Getting all kinds of Autumn feels as I sit here and smell the fresh crisp scents from Bath and Body Works next door! Cosy cosy ๐ŸŽƒโ˜•๏ธ

Ever been to Singapore?
If you haven’t and you are gonna go some day, check out the review I did on Singapore under the category destination reviews.

For those who have been, I wanted to ask if you have any tips on what I should do there when I go in a couple of days? I’ve been 9 times already and this will be my 10th time. Singapore is like my third home! Haha! I’ve done so much there that I’m simply out of ideas on what to do. I was thinking to do something more calm and maybe take a yoga class or something in that style. But of course I would love to hear some tips for you guys as well.
Singapore is a great place, especially this time of the year so if you have tips please give them! It’s simply too beautiful to stay in a hotel room all day ๐Ÿ˜„

I can also start taking tips on Beijing! Of course I have been to the Great Wall of China, but maybe somebody out there knows another great place to visit in Beijing? It was November 2 Year’s ago that I was at the wall so I wanna visit it again in summer time, but now it’s November again so I won’t be going to the wall this time. Any tips are highly appreciated!
Also I tend to be vegetarian in most parts of China as I’m not very experimental with their food, so restaurant tips are welcome too!

Hope everyone has a great day, and if you want tips on any destination around the world you can just ask!

Love,
Louise

Right now I'm on the hunt for the iPhoneX! I know it sounds silly but me and my man have both been waiting to renew our contracts until the X was released. It's released today so right now I'm struggling to get the upgrade!
I went to Dubai mall and oh my they had it in stock! So I started the process of renewing when he asked for my salary certificate. Of course I didn't have it so now I'm on my way to my work to go print one out.
After that I have to go back to the mall and hope they haven't run out of stock. I'm so stressed ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜†
Takes about 30 min to get to work, and 30 min back so that's over 1 hour before I'll be back at the mall!

Aaaaaaaah!

Wish me luck hahah
