Sunday Musings #26: One About My Visit To The Gold Souq

Yet another Sunday and here I am to update the happenings in my colorful life from Dubai.

We have guests staying over this month and that means you may get to see more of the places we take them to visit around Dubai. I love this time in Dubai when it is not too cold that we have to bring out the sweaters nor too hot that we can’t walk around the city in the noon. 

Last week we visited Gold Souq which means Gold market and as I have told you already, we in Dubai are the definition of Over the Top. Yes we are and when I say Gold souq, imagine a spice market with wares displayed out in the open and sellers calling out to you but with gold. 

Too hard to believe? I, for once, remembered to take pictures for you guys. Here I go:

Gold Dress
Gold leopard
Gold shoe
Gold souq
Gold souq jewel
Gold diamond doll

I will try and bring more updates and pictures from my city in the upcoming weeks. 

If you like what you see, you should consider following my new Instagram account (yes I finally jumped in) where I will post more of these and books as well. At least, I plan to do that.

On the blog

Here is a quick recap of the week that went by:

Did you share my frustrations on One About ‘Why Is It Christmas Already?’ in our Sunday Musings post?


On Monday I reviewed Mindy Kaling’s Why not me?  

Why not me?

We discussed the Part 2 of the Plot holes: Watch out for these inconsistencies! on Wednesday.


I was lucky to have Camilla from Readers in the Attic to talk straight from the heart of an Italian in this week’s Flyaway Friday edition.


I also had Author Greg Hickey post his choice of the Cult Favorites Of Philosophical Fiction.


Around the blogosphere

While there were so many awesome posts that I read this week, these are some of my favorites. If I don’t follow your blog yet, let me know and I will make amends right away.

I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.

  1. Thank you for sharing your city with us, those pictures are amazing. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Dubai. Wow, so much gold! I’ll make sure to visit some of the discussion posts you mentioned. Have a lovely week.

  2. Wow the Gold Souq sounds amazing! Love the pics! And hope you’re enjoying having company and showing them around. 🙂

    Have an awesome week.

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of amazing jewelry (and other gold stuff)! Over the top, yes, but much of it is also beautiful. Is Dubai home for you, or are you living there temporarily? An acquaintance of mine, a teacher, spent 4 or 5 years teaching in the UAE; they moved back here about a year ago. She and her family enjoyed their time there.

    Have a wonderful week!
