Be Happy...

She's doing indoor sales at the Deira City Centre. Her best selling item is the "outfit" she has to put on daily...for at least 8 hours. It is actually a blow-up camel and it gives the impression you are riding on it once u put it on.
" I am very happy putting on this outfit...EVERYDAY!" she exclaimed proudly. She has an infectious smile.
" Really? Sorry but I feel bad for you."
" Why? I am able to make both the adults and kids happy. They take pictures with me. It's ok if they don't buy." Again the smile.

Mohammed has a barbershop just 5 mins from Musallah Tower (my residence). The other day, I accompanied a friend who wanted a haircut....
"I have lived in Dubai and works in this shop for the past 25 yrs."
"Beginning, we were the only shop but now many shops here and there."
"Wow! you must have seen history in the making. On the average u trimmed 15 heads per for 25 yrs...that works out to 130,000 heads!!!!!!!!!!!" He smiled and took out a little blue booklet where he keeps a simple accounting.
"Are u happy here?"
"YES! and I will be retiring in 2 yrs time...going home to India."

Help! the aliens are coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am looking forward to this fun project...just 10 minutes from where Im staying. And the park is one of the bests in town....well maintained.
"The main attractions are spread across five domes of fun, each one offering a unique experience. Inside one dome is 'D3D' hi-tech edutainment theatre offering laser shows, 2D immersive video, 3D shows, 3D interactive games and corporate events, whilst 'Lunar Snow' leads children into a world beyond imagination where they can have fun with real snow all year round. They also have 'Zero Gravity' kids zone where kids can enjoy rock-wall climbing, roller-skating or the ultimate in soft indoor rides. There is also 'No Speed Limit' a high-speed electric Go-Karting and a head-spinning family rollercoaster appropriately called the 'Spinning Earth' along with the '9D Journey' a 2D + 3D + 4D virtual rides in a row with one admission. Other features include, the Children's Academy, the Bermuda Triangle of hi-tech mazes and the fun filled Leisure Triangle. An ideal social rendezvous, Stargate offers a multi-cuisine food court under a magnificent glazed pyramid which provides a natural ambience, both day and night. A combination of internationally recognized cafes and health bars are also located throughout the complex. Five corridors or wings of the spaceship provide exhibition and retail spaces on various captivating themes. The 500 meter 'Foot Coaster' is Dubai's first completely indoor jogging, walking and cycling track in a climate-controlled environment. "
Hope ET will grace the grand

It is so hard to give up....i need help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only a few friends knew about this secret of mine. For the past two got worst! I had punched, poked, slapped, threw a turkey violently at someone...even howled like a wolf in the night...some nights i turned into a blood thirsty vampire...attacking my victims while they were sound all started when i joined FACEBOOK not too long ago.

Currently, Im undergoing "cold turkey"...slowly making my way back to Blogger. For those of you facing the same dilemma...i have a quick fix for you.

Go shop till you drop in Dubai...I love the "twisted" shop in Times Square...near Al Quoz. So apt!

The Wagamama japanese restaurant at Crowne another place to chill out for now...and get a beautiful T...packed in a nice little box to end off the meal!

Or have a "detoxifying" lunch at Saladicious Cafe..value for money!

Excuse me....will be back shortly...need to punch, slap, kick someone!
