What Korean tourists buy in Dubai

Todays is my lazy day and while I am on local leave I have decided to make few blog entries on my long forgotten page.

I currently live and work in Dubai. This year in September I have visited my family who is currently relocated to Korea and my sister was about to marry a Korean man. Before I left Dubai I have decided to make a research of what should I buy as a present for my friends and my soon to be brother in law and his family. I have read in one blog posted by Korean tourist recommending few things it was a soap, cream and of cause some sweet dates. In my opinion it wasn’t a good choice so I purchased other things to present.

In November my sister came to Dubai with her official husband for a honeymoon sort of time. They have spend a good two weeks here and it was a time for me to learn about my new family member.

There  are few things I have learned by the stories and explanation my brother in law gave me and I have noticed that several times my brother in law ignored my advise of opinion, not in a rude way ofcause. I have made hotel booking for them as a present in a very expensive 5 star hotel resort and when I have told them the name of the hotel for him to make a research in the net he told me that it is not expensive it is only 190 usd per nights. I told him it is not possible because I am a travel agent and I know what I am selling and what is the real coast of the room per night at that hotel. The name of the hotel is Jumeirah al Qasr and average room rate in November is about 600 to 800 usd per night. He showed me a site in Korean where the same hotel is only 190 USD for the same dates I have booked for them, he would never believed me if I would not told him to try a book a room to see the original price. Ofcause in the end when he pushed book, the site gave him and original rate of 800 usd per night.  I have as well offered them to go and watch a La Perle show which I have enjoyed a lot, my sister was excited and they went for a show, when he came back he was so amazed by the show and first thing he asked, why Korean tourist never mentioned anything about this show in their blogs. I offered him to write one but he was to into this.

So a few days before their return, we have decided to go shopping, I wanted to buy some gifts for my parent and send them with them to Korea and brother in law wanted to buy some souvenirs and gifts for his family. When I asked him what he will buy he said that he had read in the net that he should buy this and this. And this is when I was shocked and realised that he is about to buy the same things I wanted to buy after reading the blog.

So these are three items that all Korean Tourists buy in Dubai


  1. Ladubag Soap original.jpeg

2 Fade Out Cream


3 Himalaya Cream


It was almost impossible to offer or suggest to buy other things, plus he would even know where to buy those items cheaper.

I send them back to Korea and few days later me and my friend went grocery shopping so I wanted to show my friend what exactly my brother in law had purchased.  When we have approached the place where all those items were displayed I have noticed a group Koreans mingle in the same area, so I told my friend that I can bet the tree items this group of Koreans will buy and I have told her all three things and we just watch them to pick up exact the same soap and creams,  I could not stop laughing and my friend too.

So my conclusion is simple, Korean people trust only Korean people, and they will only follow the blogs written by Korean people.

I would like to hear your opinion on this one


I wonder if you keep it

you broke a heart

and gave me half

of pendant that we shared

you said its our love

and chained it on your neck

now years had gone

and half of love

been kept away and hidden

because its other half

i wonder, if you keep it

shall I return

or ask to give me

the missing part of love

because the broken heart

i wanna fix it

so i can try again to love

To a Soldier …….

I looked at you right outside the window

you were just stepping of the porch

and suddenly i felt the shiver

from thought that never should be heard.

I run to you before you reach the cab

and i did screamed your name so loud

and my bear foot were cold and numb

and we could her the both heart pound.

you swift me of the foot and took me back

and told me just to think of other new life

that was just couple weeks away

that growing slowly, right inside me

the new life born, and its a boy

with everything that says about you

and now he hanged your army uniform

above the folded flag in his room

Streetlight…… and a shadow

I see your shadow at the corner

the street light is my spy

why did you come again

I wonder

just to be sure that i am ok?

I will pretend that you’re unnoticed

like all the other days

the streetlight later gonna show you

you way from me away

I hope your shadow wont be here

tomorrow and the other day

i hope that you will finally get over

what done is done, now it’s my pain

now we are strangers, just two people

who share the planet earth

without light there is no shadow

with out you there is no hurt



while i was waiting for the rain to hide my  heavy tears

your brought her an umbrella and sheltered her from fears

and all what i was thinking and crying our loud

why couldn’t God had made me, the one with you so near.

Beauty by The Shivers

i live off love
i feed off love
i breathe off love
i think of love
i drink of love
i sink in love
and in the middle of the night i need my love
i need to grieve and need to need and be in love
my love is gonna come to me

i give my love and all my love to you, my love
i feast on love, a beast for love, release my love
you’re scared and unprepared for love, don’t care my love
cause youre the only woman i’ve been dreaming of
i swear to god i’m loving you for that
i swear to god i’m making you my wife

and if you ever leave me
i never will be sore
i’ll love you ’til you’re lonely
then i’ll love you some more just before

beauty beauty beauty, there’s nobody near me,
there never was
beauty beauty beauty, there’s nobody near me,
there never was.

Hope…. For falling star

Those billion of stars that shine

to make us feel so fascinated

and we just wait for them to fall

for wish that never will be granted

Another start had fallen hard

and broke into a million pieces

and take away the wish I’ve made

yet one more time to no existence

Again I left with nothing but a  hope

while looking at the dark sky

that other star will start to fall

so i can make a wish that can be granted

Вопросы и Ответы 

за окном уже рассвет,

а я глазом не сомкнула

В голове ищу ответ

На вопрос из неоткуда

То ли жизнь сплошная мука

Толи мука зто жизнь

Не могу найти ответа

И ворпоса тоже нет

За окном уже светло

А я только засыпаю

И во сне как на яву

На вопросы отвечаю

Present…. is Today


is day that over

and tomorrow

day is yet to come

may be it’s a present

that you need to open

to find out

what you have right now

if somebody could have told you

day and time when you will die

you would cherish every second

every second will be live

think of present as a last one

you will never get it back

live it so you can remember

every day of your own life.


Narrow … Walk

Image result for narrow streets with bricks walls

the narrow street

with side tall lights

it takes me to nowhere

and I just walk

and i just wait

for lights go off

for sun to rise

then i will see

that street still narrow

and all i have is bricks on sides

the side lights soon

come back to live

while i still walk

my walk to nowhere

will never change

there’s no way back

because the road

that left behind me

is long enough

as long as life

has been too long
