Ooo Chile...

It has been over three months since I've updated this blog.  I decided that since I skipped out on my gym workout today, I needed to do something constructive, like update what has been happening with me in my travels abroad.

So much has been going on!!  Where do I start?  Well, I am most excited about my progress as a singer here.  Last month I sang at an Open Mic here in Abu Dhabi and that was fantastic!  It just reignited my love flame for music and singing all over again.  Be sure to check me out at www.reverbnation.com/satirah for a sneak peak at what my singing is like.  I am currently the #1 Jazz Singer on the ReverbNation charts here Abu Dhabi and I am so grateful to all of the people that have supported me with visiting the site and listening to my music for the past month.  Plus a short video clip of me performing 'Bella Vista' with music composed by Jazz Musician Monzell Dunlap  is on YouTube!  There is sooo much more to come! Ooo chile!  I'm excited!

Let me know what you think!

I  have also been travelling! I went on a seven day cruise through Italy, Greece, and Croatia and oh the marvelous places I saw with my very own eyes.  Places I have read about, taught about I have seen for myself and I call it a blessing!  Amazing!  Oh, and I also sang in a Talent Show on the Costa Magica cruise ship to top it all off!  Ooo Chile!  Ain't God good?

Venice, Italy!  Liquid streets...travel by boat only!

Olympia, Greece...where the Olympics was born!

Athens, Greece

Athens, Greece...the Acropolis...standing in front of the Parthenon...temple of Athena!  Bow down peasants...LOL!

Chillin in Santorini!

All smiles on the gondola ride in Venice!

I've traveled some of the world and I can't wait to do it again and hit up Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, and Hong Kong just to name a few.  I will keep you posted!!
I still have lots more to share!  I have truly been living a life I never dreamed!!!

I can't even begin to tell you about my first experience at an Emirati wedding last weekend in Abu Dhabi...Ooo chile!

Let's just say it was something to see and extremely interesting!  I enjoyed myself, ate, danced and happy to have gotten that cultural experience under my belt.  When is the next wedding?  I'm there!

It's on like popcorn now!  I'm singing again on Friday, April 26 here in Abu Dhabi!  If you're on this side of the world...be sure to drop in and give me a HOLLA!!

There is so much going on in my world...I can hardly keep up!  But tomorrow I am going to the gym!  I'm not playing!  I gotta be bikini ready for Summer cause...Ooo chile!
