I am so happy and grateful to share another wonderful moment in my life.
Waterfront Market in partnership with Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) has chosen my work and I won the competition. I’m so grateful for the opportunity and I deeply honored to receive this award from respected judges Khalil Abdulwahid Hassan, Director of Fine Arts Department at @dubaiculture & Arts Authority; Maitha Al-Marri, one of the UAE’s upcoming visual artists; and Lachlan Gyde, Executive Director for Retail, Residential, & Commercial at Ithra Dubai, the developer and operator of the @wfm.uae . And my heartful thanks to Waterfront Market team for all the love and support.
I’m pretty sure that if Armenia had a Ministry of Magic, it would be hidden at the Cascade. But this complex - which has a 572-step staircase running up 991 feet, gorgeous fountains and architecture, plenty of sculptures throughout the gardens creating an outdoor gallery of sorts, and exhibit halls on the inside (where there are escalators if you don’t want to climb the steps) forming the Cafesjian Center for the Arts - is still pretty magical in the Muggle world. ✨ Visit at sunrise or sunset if you can - the golden light makes it look exceptional and once you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the city and the mountains beyond.

Astronomers and astronomy lovers are preparing to observe a meteor shower that occurs every year on 14th December.
Mohammed Shawkat Odeh, Director of the International Astronomical Centre and Member of the International Meteorological Organisation, said that the “twin meteorite” was named because it appears to have originated from a fictitious point in the “twin group,” where the asteroid, “Phyton,” releases dust particles into its orbit.
When the Earth approaches the orbit of the asteroid every year, the dust particles are attracted to the Earth, and when they enter the atmosphere, they burn to create meteors, he added while noting that the peak of this phenomenon will take place on 14th December, 2018, at 16:30 UAE time.
Nearly 60 to 120 twin meteors are expected to be visible during peak time this year, but they do not pose any threats to Earth, he further added.
