The Muscat Mommy is Shirley Siaton-Parabia‘s blog on her experiences as an expatriate mother, wife and career woman in the Sultanate of Oman.

This website has been live since 30 June 2017 and part of The Honor and Blood Network. My main personal blog is located at Shi Bytes.

The domain was purchased from NameCheap on 19 June 2016. It spent more than a year dormant in my control panel before I finally decided to bring my idea for an Oman-centric online diary to life.

As for the site title, please do not be misled by its seemingly generic, alliterative nature. The Muscat Mommy is far from being your run-of-the-mill “mommy blog.” Indeed, I am a very proud mom, but I also work full time, write books and have a whole slew of sporty pursuits . My adventures of late have taken for the most part in Muscat and throughout Oman, so why not blog about it all? I do consider the Sultanate as my second home.
