Last week, we celebrated the 49th National day of the UAE with a lonnng weekend. Yes we had a 5 day weekend to mark the National day and Commemoration day. And it has been a fabulous holdiay!
With the Covid restrictions, we had a few events cancelled, some at the last minute. But we did have a spectacular show of fireworks and we drove down the beach to get a better view of it.How was your weekend? What are you currently watching and reading?

Of course there were several huge sales and discounts and as expected, the retails and the malls were filled with somewhat socially distancing people.
How has your week been?
What I read this week
I finished reading Anxious People by Fredrik Backman and I loved it, unsurprisingly. And I will be reviewing it very soon.
And I have currently picked up Ziggy, Stardust and Me by James Brandon, as a part of 2020 A to Z Reading Challenge for the letter Z.
Any book suggestions for the remaining letters – Q and X?
What I watched this week
I caught up with Undoing from HBO last week. And I was not particularly happy with it. With such powerful cast like Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant, I expected better.
I also watched Safe, (created by Harlen Coben) on Netflix. Another unsatisfactory crime thriller.
I finally started watching “This is US” as well, but I am gonna go slow. What other award winning shows should I be watching already?
