I Miss...


Chocolate Chip Cookies:
I am craving chocolate chip cookies. Soft, gooey ones, like they have in the USA. I went cookie-shopping in AD but it wasn't the same :'( 

The cookies here are crumbly and brittle and the chocolate chips are too sweet. When I dip the cookie into my glass of low-fat milk, it disintegrates and sinks to the bottom. Ana sad jiddan (I am very sad)! 

Pizza:
I've been here almost four months now and only had pizza once! The pizza joints are few and far between- no Papa Johns home delivery... Pizza Hut is too greasy and they reduced the size instead of hiking up the prices so one teensy slice costs around AED 15.

Public Transport:
Other than taxis, public transport still has a long way to go... the buses are overcrowded, stop at arbitrary points and don't service half the places I'd like to visit. Streetcars might be a good idea (like the ones they have in Toronto).  

Online Shopping:
I miss being able to order anything and everything online... Amazon rocks my socks :) 

Squirrels:
I really miss the squirrels! Didn't appreciate them enough when I was there... notice its wistful expression...
