On May 14th, my family and I traveled to Abu Dhabi, UAE for a much awaited-midyear break. For the last nine months of working endlessly, I felt the need to unwind and go somewhere where I can relax and enjoy a quality time with my family and friends. When May 17th was declared as a holiday in Oman on the occasion of the blessed anniversary of Al Isra’a Wal Miraj, we all decided to visit our close friends in the United Arab Emirates. Gladly, they spared their valuable time to accommodate us and tour to magnificent tourist destination in the country.

We arrived in Abu Dhabi at 11:00 o’clock in the evening  after the inconvenience and hassled that we encountered in the borders. It was 2 hours late of our expected arrival because the Police in Oman border didn’t stamp our passports with exit details. We only found out the incident, when we came to Khattm Al Shiklah Customs Centre between Buraimi and Al Ain. We reroute back to Oman and have the passports stamped.

But the trouble instantly vanished when I meet again my good college friends and savored the sumptuous dinner they have graciously prepared for us. I bought a chocolate cake for Elle and Shaun’s 13th Wedding anniversary which they celebrated a day before. We had some nice conversation while catching up the latest happenings in our life after a year of not seeing each other. Then, they made a plan for our itinerary the next day.

On the morning of May 15th (Friday), we drive to Khalifa City, the blossoming hub of the new Abu Dhabi 2030 Plan, where Al Forsan International Sports Resort is located. The Resort is just a 10-minute drive from the Abu Dhabi International Airport and the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

I should say that this is a world-class sports resort that offers motor sports, paintball, shooting, equestrian, water sports, and fitness and leisure. There’s also various restaurants and cafes for anyone to dine in their preferred diet and cuisine. In the information desk, they have an electronic machine where you can personally enter your profile upon registration. The system can also tap to your social media account like Facebook. Before entering the premises, there’s a security checkpoint. As part of the Shooting  Range  Safety  Rules and Security Regulations; guests are kindly advise to bring the following: 1. Valid UAE ID (resident ID) and 2. Original Passport or Passport Copy

The little boys and I tried the Archery that costs 100 AED for 30 minutes. It was truly difficult at first and needs a precise measurement to hit the arrow to the right spot on the board.

After some practice and tryouts, I was able to get the technique and score high. Woohooo! Later I realize that my arms and shoulders were painful because of the strength I have exerted while playing Archery.

It was blazing hot at noon time when we were at the field. We hurriedly went back to the main building with the big boys and Joan have to try live bullet shooting.

Each of them paid 200AED. They have tried all sorts of the gun. They all said that live bullet shooting can be addictive.
