Things I like about Middle East:

Bidets in every toilet
Good quality shishah
Mango/Agave/Strawberry juices with pulp
Fresh Mangosteens (I first tried them in Abu Dhabi)
Delicious pastry (mango mousse, chocolate cake with real Belgian chocolate frosting)
Authentic Arabic and Indian cuisines
Excellent service
Can order any food online/phone and it will be delivered to your house
Premium delicious dates
All kinds of beauty services for reasonable prices (waxing/threading and keratin treatments. moroccan baths are all nice and cheap)
Aromatizers with a very pleasant exotic/arabic smell (can be used for rooms/houses, clothes, even hair)

I will add up anything I forgot to mention

I keep noticing more and more that while browsing great decoration/design/beauty/etsy blogs-  I like the photograph of some item more than the item itself. There are amazing pictures of beads, fabrics and cakes. To me, the picture itself is an art. I fall in love with it and I want that item. But do I really? Is it an item I want or a professional photograph  of it?

It's nice to have some free time and browse internet for decorating ideas. I think below image from lonnymag via a cup of Jo is a neat inspiration to make a bar cart at home. Having No alcohol here, in ME, I'm looking forward to have some spirits on display and making holiday theme cocktails.
