in mombloggersplanet, it's stated that;
"Yes, if you have a picture of your baby outdoor – at the beach, in the park and even back in your village… you can enter this contest. The greener the environment, the better! Why nature? Because nature is good for babies!"
this picture with kahfi is certainly lacking of the green color, (i hope the judge won't mind! hihi) but why confine ourselves with only greenery as a source of nature when there's the blue sea, the red summer leaves, the grey cascade of waterfalls, the white snow, the orange sunset and, in my case - the brown desert sand!
"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous."
~ Aristotle (B.C. 384–322)

this picture was taken in the middle of winter in the united arab emirates where we're currently residing. the vast desert invites us to explore its rich texture of its sandstone, granite rocks, boulder, pebble and endless sand.
the desert can be very hot during the day, and extremely cold at night - so we took cautionary measures to make sure kahfi was comfy in his thick wooly rompers, complete with headgear to keep his head warm too!

dubai is a very fast moving city with honks of noises and heaps of carbon monoxide from the ever increasing traffic. they don't have tropical rainforest here, but they do have the vast desert to bring my baby kahfi;
- to enjoy the peaceful silence of the desert
- for babies to enjoy the calming scenery of endless sand as far as the eye can see
- they can feel the different texture of sand in the palm of their hand, as a stimulation to the sense of touch
- they can enjoy the sight of animals like camels and the arabian oryx, which are hardly seen in other natural environment
- develops a deep sense of curiosity as babies are introduced to new environment away from the confines of home
- this provides a good moment of bonding between kahfi and i, as well as with his big bro khaleef and with bapak mr. khairul as all of us golek-golek and tread the sand together
