The Spirit of Giving

Now that the month of THINKING about the needy, and giving to the poor over, we can go back to what we do best..BUYING and TAKING! Even though I donated many thoughtful gifts to my driver, housekeeper,  and dry cleaner, some people really never thought this whole giving thing through. As I was walking through the mall by the charity bin, I saw the following items donated by my fellow fabulous Dubaians to the needy…..

Designer sunglasses…there’s nothing like last seasons shades for working in that hot summer sun.

A nice array of DVDs including a full season of friends…what are those plastic things on the bottom?

Boxed perfume gift sets galore! poor people smell!

Face steamers and hair straighteners….for all that frizz, grit, and grime.

Who needs encyclopedias…last but not least, some intellectual beach reading. In conclusion, when sometimes there’s little light at the end of the tunnel for some folks, its the small comforts in life that can really keep them going…keep on giving Dubai.

Mr.Dubai 2011 Crowned

Ok normally I would NEVER EVER post the below as it will only encourage these people but I thought you should know as fellow Dubaians. Your Mr. Dubai has been crowned. Apparently 19 contestants competed for this lucritive position, with prize money of *drum roll please* ……. 5000 AED (1,300 USD) grand prize. I didn’t bother reading the rest so not sure what else was involved but if your dying to know click HERE.

Check out the poser in the green, he looks like a winner… The contest claimed “20 able bodied Dubai men will strut their stuff for the final round.”

Did you guys even know this was going on?? Some type of final dance off.

Who are these judges? Why didn’t anyone call me.

It was a real NAILBITER, these were the finalists…

The winner…He wanted world peace and is an aspiring Bollywood actor. Someone definitely lied to the poor guy. As a closing statement I’d like to add this…Dubai is a cosmopolitan metropolis of wealth, fashion, and travel for the region. It is now on the world stage as a destination and a city to be reckoned with. Does the above really make us proud? For more on this story click HERE.
