Trip to Dibba, Khor Al Fakkan & Fujairah

The trip was actually a result of no other available option, all the Airlines, Hotels booked, so one of  the only options left to us bachelors and forced bachelors was to take the road to Dibba, Khor Al Fakkan & Fujairah.
All these places are not too far from Dubai, total driving time was about 1 hr 45 minutes one way. One can stop on the way at the carpet market (where a pathan brethen tied the head scarf for me). There were total 4 of us, Myself, Santhana, Charan & KC. We were lucky to get a 1 bedroom chalet for 850 aed for a nite (all the places were running full) at HBM (Highway beach motel) at the Start of Dibba-Fujairah Highway.
Daru, Dance bars, Snooker and Hamsha (the smart morroccan waitress) were the highlights of the stay. Also santhana had some rare james bond style pics clicked in the sea.

Stop after Masafi

These were the breakwaters at HBM
KC was the surprise discovery for the photography and was perpetually glued to D 3000. Santha was the daredevil Jet skier of the day.

Diwali visit Home-Nov 2010

Its happens once a year on Diwali that our entire family gets together. Parents and brother's family              had come over from Faridabad (around 40 km from my place) and sister's family was able to join us too. We opened a champagne bottle but it had turned sour to everyone's disappointment :-(
Nevertheless a chivas was just handy :-)..... all of us managed a wink at about 3 am in the morning yet everyone loved the feeling of togetherness.
Here's a picture of the entire family
