Slow news day?




Today's front page of Emirates Today is all about "Dubai's most expensive villa", and how it can be yours for Dhs 57 million.

Seriously? Who is the editor of this newspaper? Is this really a front-page kind of story? Yeah fine, it's cool to see pictures of the villa, but this is more of a lifestyle/feature kind of article that I really wouldn't have placed on the front page of a newpaper.

Oh well....there was one piece of good news however: Cirque du Soleil will be heading to Dubai sometime next year! Amazing! I've already seen 2 of their shows and I really hope to be able to catch this one...these shows are really spectacular.

Why am I up so early on a Friday morning after a late night out? Whyyyyy?

Oh, wait....I know...it's because my sister woke me up, invaded my bed, and fell asleep! Thanks Sky!

CDC is amazing. Hopefully it will get appreciated in Dubai.

The new performance of Cirque du Soleil is called:
Dubai Sunshine and Sky.

Emirates Today has become a totally irrelevant, bland and vapid rag. The management must be proud.

Well - at least you got to read about CdS hitting town! :-)

Let me know when you're purchasing a ticket, you know why :)

You beat me to it, I was planning a post on it and whether the editor of EmTod really thinks this is the most important thing happening in the world today.

Trying to go back to the old days of nothing but bland and sanitised stuff in the papers ain't gonna work - we now have overseas newspapers on sale and the internet for our news.

Grapeshisha...Not sure sure that the Dubai Sunshine and Sky show will really sell lots of tickets :)

I really still can't get over how silly this front page is...it's really ridiculous...

Mar, welcome! Yalla get settled in and call me!

I wonder if their shows in Dubai would have the same stages they have in Vegas... these stages cost millions!

CdC is absolutely amazing, we will definitely be first in the queue for tickets.

Congrats on reaching your 20K, keep on blogging!
