My Bucket List ... Things to do before I die!

A few days ago I watched The Bucket List, it was my first time to watch it but I knew the story beforehand. However, watching the movie was a real delight still, though the story is so simple and may be tackled in several movies before, but I couldn’t help being so touched by it. Perhaps the story affected me so much because lately I find myself consumed with the idea of death and what we will face after we are buried under the dust. Are we going to feel anything? Are we going to miss the people we leave behind? I know it's so depressing to think of such issues and I can't count how many times did my husband ask me to discard such ideas out of my head ... but I couldn't.

I am not going to tell you that watching the movie completely changed my mind and that I stopped thinking about death, but it kinda opened my eyes to the fact that I am not thinking at all about life and living it. Now I don't know about you guys but I have to admit that most of the times I am caught up in a vicious cycle of working hard, saving money and taking care of the house that I hardly realize how time flies quickly.

So inspired by the movie I decided to write my own bucket list, things that I want to do or achieve, hopefully before I die. So here it goes …

My Bucket List

- Learn a new language

- Visit at least one new country in each continent with my husband

- Take Sharp Shooting lessons

- Memorize at least few parts of the Holy Quran

- Take care of an orphan

- Going to Pilgrimage

- Doing something good enough to inspire others and be remembered by.

- Building my own house with a garden and pool

- Riding a bicycle again (had an accident when I was a kid and stopped riding bicycles ever since)

- Meet Andrea Bocelli

- Play with real snow

- Lose weight and staying fit

- Learn water treading (I can swim but if I stopped in the middle of the pool I would drown in a blink of an eye)

- Learn cross stitching

- Starting my own business

Well ... that's all I could think of so far, I am sure as I grow older my life will change and I will add more things to this list, and hopefully I will come back and scratch off few things that I would have accomplished.

So guys, make sure you write down your own list as well, live your life and enjoy it before it's too late.


  1. Learning a new language before you die is very good task...Learn a new language at the best place in Dubai.

    Quba Training Center JLT, Dubai.

  2. Great list!

    You could combine visiting a new country with the snow? Sweden or somewhere in northern Europe is almost guaranteed snow.

    And I really hope you get back on a bike - I taught a 26 year old friend of mine how to ride a bike last year, so if she can do it so can you! :)

My Painful Experience with IKEA Dubai, UAE

I know that IKEA is the favorite furniture destination for lots of expats living in the UAE but I have been living here for 5 years and managed to avoid buying furniture from there till yesterday … and I wish I hadn't!
Yesterday I went to IKEA in Festival City and bought a 3 seat sofa bed with mattress and cover, then I went to customer care and agreed that that they will send a team to deliver and assemble it today at 5:30pm.
My husband had just arrived from work, looking so tired and hungry when the delivery team arrived.  I started heating supper as they started unwrapping the sofa bed, we figured it wouldn’t take more than 20 to 30 minutes maximum to be done, then we can have supper and relax and boy we were wrong!
The two guys spend almost an hour trying to figure out how to assemble the base … just the base!! My husband kept asking them if there was any problem or if this is their first time to assemble a similar sofa bed but they kept saying “no no all ok”.
After an hour t…

Arab Media Forum Disappointment!

Yesterday was the first time for me to attend the Arab Media Forum. I had a meeting at the morning but luckily I finished just in time to catch the session I was really interested in attending; “Daily Newspapers: Crisis in the West, growth in the Arab World."
We have all been arguing about the death of printed media and the rise of digital and social media. Yet one year ago, The National newspaper was launched in the UAE and a couple of months ago Alrroya Aleqtisadiya newspaper did. In Egypt I honestly lost track of newspapers launched as every now and then I hear of a new one. My colleague just read that a new printed newspaper will launch in Oman. Does this look like a growth in printed media or what?So I was really looking forward to the session hoping it would shed the light on the reasons behind this growth or proving the death of printed media, especially with the prominent media figures speaking and attending. I was expecting a great debate and a heated discussion among all…
