Feeding Stray Cats in Abu Dhabi

There could be more than a dozen of things that needed to be written here as I have been missing in action for at least a year but let me write about yesterday's event. My sister has been talking about feeding stray cats in a park in Abu Dhabi. She has seen a couple of expats around the area who spend time in the park and feed stray cats! And she thought maybe we could do the same thing.

Of course I am all for it. I was once a cat person and I still am. If you ever ask me to choose between cat or dog, I would not probably give an answer but I would recall the time when I used to have a lot of kittens and cats when I was a kid. Dogs were also there but the kittens were easily accessible for me. 

This happened yesterday:




I can say that around a third of the cats we have fed came to us and rubbed their body against our legs! I guess it is there way of saying thank you!


We started around 5 in the afternoon and spent time around the park and walked along Corniche. I don't have a correct count of how many cats we fed but there are a lot along the way for sure!

We had coffee at Seattle's Best coffee shop and enjoyed the view of the Marina. Decided to go back home along the same route and got back home at around 11 in the evening. If I remember correctly, my step count reached 17,000 steps! It was a great day to walk around the capital city, feed stray cats, and see strangers/tourists smile at us! I hope we inspired them to feed stray cats as well if they have time!  =)

Stopping By To Say Hi!

To be honest, I find it difficult to write in this space these past few months (years, maybe?). It's saddening that I prefer to write business e-mails than writing for my personal blog. It's good that I am focused at work but I know my boss would want me to have a life. I remember her telling me to not stop writing when she asked about my blog a year ago.

Here I am again, on vacation, trying to populate this blog with one more entry. Trying to keep the ball rolling and hoping my thirst for writing more comes back! It's a shame. I don't remember how much writing made me feel sane. Isn't it scary to not feel anything you used to love once? I think I need to write more but I also need time for it. These past few months, I always ask myself how did I ever write so much content in my blog? How did I write poems, stories, whatnots? How did I manage to create things and even collaborated with different people around the world through digital media and endless e-mails? How did I manage to have always an idea in mind?

At 27, I think I need to go back to the time when I was 21 when I told myself that "at 21, I am undecided but just fine". It's true though - I am 27 and I am undecided and fine but I want something more. I want to go to the next step but I don't know what that is. Funny how at 27 I still do not know what I want but I know there has got to be something there. Something that makes life more meaningful. 

I have so many things in mind that I want to do and the more I think about those, the more I find myself scattered everywhere. But I can't just let myself stay still in one place - that just ain't right. Therefore I choose to be everywhere and keep it that way because that's how I have lived my life for years now and I am still doing okay, I guess. This is why I am back here again... I am writing again. And I will try to keep stopping by.
