You have reached Muscat Mommy, one of the many blogs owned and run by Shirley Parabia. This website was specifically created to chronicle my adventures and experiences as an expatriate wife, mother and career woman based in Oman.
I have been blogging since 2001 and living in Muscat, the Sultanate’s capital city, since 2007. However, believe or not, this is the first time I have put together a journal specifically focused on living in the country I have called home for so many years now. It’s about time, I say, since my husband and I will be celebrating our 14th year as Oman residents on the 1st of October 2017!
As for the site title, please do not be misled by its seemingly generic, alliterative nature. Muscat Mommy is far from being your run-of-the-mill “mommy blog.” Indeed, I am a very proud mother, but I am also a full-time career woman, a sports enthusiast and an author. My adventures of late have taken for the most part in Muscat and throughout Oman, so why not blog about it all?
Rather than offering a long-winded introduction about myself, there is a static page on this subject to peruse at your leisure. For more on what I love and what I do, please visit my blog and website collective.
