It’s May, or May not ..

Well It Is May.. Excuse me for trying to make it sound like a discovery. But.. you may or may not know about the existence of a Dubai Flea Market, did you ? It’s an awesome concept whoever came up with it. Personally I ‘discovered’ it only last week from dubai-shopping-secrets.com and the website was a discovery in itself.  Check it out and you’ll see why.

Here’s some news for May, while I’m waiting for my brand new BMW.. well from Splash you know.  I’m expecting it anytime, I bought a trouser and they’ve got 20 BMWs to give away on it. I was passing by the shop and I was tempted, I must say. So I may or may not ever wear that trouser, may or may not see my BMW when I open my eyes. But, it’s worth a try or a trouser let’s say!. If you didn’t get yours it’s too late now, it ended on 4th May.  And here are some more things that’s about to end in May.. so you may go get your last minute deals right now.

Keep up the Style !

Dubai is back in style ! The buzz around the globe is on about Dubai police in their Lamborghini cars. Now you even get arrested in style. And you thought we had enough landmarks, buildings, hotels and malls in Dubai ? We got more coming. Check out Ahmad Dubai’s Blog, he keeps you up-to-date with happenings in Dubai.  I hope he’ll also keep us posted with photos of these developments on his photography website.

So In Dubai style don’t stop, and you gotta keep up with the city. I know, it’s pay day, it’s weekend and you’re going to feel like spending. You don’t want to be wearing an Armani suite with empty pockets by next week. I can understand the pressure on the style but spend prudently, okay. So, here are some picks for you this weekend.

Who wants to be beautiful eh?

Have you noticed, the word ‘b-e-a-u-tiful’ has a complicated spelling, that you can’t help misspelling it. That tells you something, Beauty, it’s hard to spell it out.. BTW Is there anyone left in the world who hasn’t seen the youtube video of Mr.Forensic from CIA doing sketches.

My concept of beauty is simple. It’s simply good health. That’s why I call it Health & Beauty. Beauty is relatively proportional to health, physical and mental. Notice how people look best in their youth, or, people look better when they are into fitness, and the opposite when sick… People who migrate from 3rd world to more developed countries look better than their counterparts back home.. it’s simply change of food and lifestyle. A beautiful person is the sum of it’s parts, i.e. healthy skin + bright eyes + quality of hair + shape + etc..

Summary, focus on health, and beauty will follow naturally.

Having said that, it’s also expensive to maintain such a lifestyle. So ..

Home & Decor

My building in Dubai Marina has beautiful penthouse apartments.. 4 bedrooms on the 48th floor, with own terrace and beautiful views to the palm island. No, that’s not mine, mine is 3 bedrooms less and 35 floors below that.. so I still have some steps to climb up till there.. but hope to get there someday.  So who does live there I was curious.. who is living my dream ? obvious question.. I found out that it’s a rich Russian gentleman who owns the penthouse apartment, but he hasn’t moved in since 2 years that he bought it.. What ?? well, he’s still furnishing it.. it’s undergone everything from a Mediteranean theme, then switched to a jungle theme, and so on.  So i’m not the only one with an obsession on redoing my interior.. but mine is limited to moving the furniture around and switching the wall hangings.. you can only stretch your legs to the length of the blanket you see.. So, if you are like me, with an appetite for home design but not the cash to match, we have to wait for the time when these fancy showrooms go on sale.. and that’s just happened.. So here’s a list.

By the way I’d also planned to make a post on Kids, but I’ve got to say sorry Mom’s out there, I don’t have much right now, but it’s coming soon.. But I make up for it by recommending you another blog.. it’s Dubaioursandbox, a beautiful blog on kids and family life in dubai, written by a mom, of the mom for the moms. I enjoyed reading it even though i’m not a mom.. If you didn’t notice it yet, my pen name is dxbboy!
