It is not only the mandatory use of mask when going out to guest areas that makes me feel strange but everything about the new normal. Adapting to change takes time. Just the same, the world will take its time. Continue reading “Love, Hope and The Color-Changing Fish”
I lied down on the day bed. Face to the sky, looking at the bits of clouds in between the spaces of the coconut leaves. It was like looking at pieces of the sky cut by sword into thin slices. Continue reading “Static”
We started our Eid Al Ftr with a sunrise video shoot. We all got up at 5am and completed the session by half past eight. We had to do it that day just because the weather had been very unpredictable lately so the shoot can’t wait. Continue reading “An Eid To Remember”

Day 10: Ebe Dancel’s Music
I couldn’t sleep that night. It was already late. But since I couldn’t sleep, I took my phone and started searching for Ebe’s music videos on youtube. So random. His songs are timeless. And as I listened to song after song after song, I felt different emotions. Heartbreak, joy, hope. And finally, I wanted to play the guitar and sing his songs.

Frequently asked questions about sharks and why they should not end up on your plate.
I left the island at 8am and headed to Male’ to join a fun dive. It was a warm, sunny morning, the last Sunday of 2019.
I reached the meeting point at 9:30am and as I waited for the instructor and other divers to arrive, the bright blue sky suddenly turned gray. The round swollen clouds are ready to spill anything on it at any given time. The wind blew hard. Continue reading “Year End Dive”
Living in an island in the Maldives and still wanting to visit islands might sound strange to you but it is really my goal to see as much islands of the Maldives while I am here, while the islands are still in their natural state (before a foreign company takes over and turns it into a resort and changes the entire island).
