I just love Ryken's expression here and how I wish this was really taken in Dubai. :)
But no, this is the La Paz Sand Dunes of Laoag, Ilocos Norte (famous setting of the movies, Panday ni FPJ and Temptation Island Remake). Hubby and my in-laws went on a 4x4 ride here and they did the sandboarding, too. We spent the Holy Week in Laoag and Batac, the hometown of my parents-in-law.
Friends who've been to the Middle East say that this can easily pass as a Dubai picture. Astig! :)
