This wonderful “Brown” family farewell gift (beautifully framed) was presented to me by my good friend, Geoff! Thanks, buddy! This gift shall take a place of honor in our home in the Philippines. 🙂
If you want to order your own family name plate in Omani-Inspired letters, check out the order page from my friend’s blog here. It’s quite easy: you just order from his website and the picture will be printed and framed for you! This would make a perfect farewell gift, for yourself or for anyone you know leaving Oman.

Totem Boutique is now open in Muscat Grand Mall! We were there at 6pm on Thursday for their official opening.
If you consider yourself a “fashionista”, this is definitely a shop for you.Even their changing rooms are incredibly fashionable!They have all kinds of jewelry at Totem, both on the wall and also laid out among the clothing items. They have these great one-of-a-kind watch pieces (not pictured) that my wife really liked and so she picked one up for something like 19 OR.My wife loved the items in the store and we ended up staying a lot longer than I expected, haha! She picked up the cute orange handbag pictured at the top of the rack in the picture above for something like 34 OR.That’s Susan (the owner, in the middle!) pictured with her employees, Riazal and May, on opening day.Cupcakes on opening day from Cake Gallery!Totem is a great addition to the Muscat Grand Mall.
