Life is like a carnival ride. You can play it safe and ride the merry-go-round, it’s predictable. But, myself personally, I will ride the rollercoaster, for all its glory and thrills, its ups and downs, twists and turns, and rushes. – Unknown
The Dubai Shopping Festival comes around every year for a month. And with it, the month-long celebration of fireworks, street parades, stilt walkers, the circus and the much-awaited rides! For one whole month, the city is transformed into a joyous carnival. If you’ve experienced the rush brought by a carnival at least once in your lifetime, you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, it’s time you experience one. While we can’t have the festival running all-year round, we can capture its spirit within our lives forever. So here’s to the sweetness of candy, splash of colour and diversity of rides – may they always, ALWAYS thrill you!
