I was at the Coldplay concert last Saturday, and all I can say is WOW! What a show!

We got there early so we could secure good spots...and what amazing spots they ended up being! Chris Martin was so close, we could almost touch him!

The rain, lightning and thunder show that accompanied the band only made the whole experience even better in my opinion.

The band was incredible...they looked like they were having fun on stage, they interacted with the crowd, they improvised, and they sang their lungs out! Their rendition of "I'm a believer" was amazing, and Chris often burst out into spontaneous rain-related songs such as "Why does it always rain on me" and "Raindrops keep falling on my head".

He even invited a girl to go up on stage with him to celebrate her birthday. Lucky b*&^h :)

The venue at the Emirates Palace was perfect once again (although more traffic on the way out this time around, and it seems that the wristband section was a bit more chaotic).

Abu Dhabi has proven once again that when it comes to attracting the big names and putting on a show, it beats Dubai hands down!

What's been happening?

I'm averaging out a post a month. Not good at all. I really should pay more attention to my blog...

Not that there's been much happening lately.

Totally busy: which everyone tells me is a good thing. They did lay off a few people though, but not too many. I know it may be sad to say, but at least this financial crisis has helped weed out non-performers, and provided a kick in the butt to those who were granted immunity (myself included!).

Totally unrelated: why is it that Saih Ash Shaib (right at the border of Dubai and Abu Dhabi) has now become Saih Shaib, with the "Ash" erased out of all the signs? Who is it that woke up one day and decided that the "Ash" had to go?

Totally random: How often should one take a vacation to remain sane? Every 3 months? 6 months? Once a year? Why is it that I've felt like I needed a vacation ever since I came back from my last vacation? Huh?

Totally annoying: will traffic in the Greens ever get better? EVER?

Totally serious: looking for a 2 bedroom apartment around the Media City area. Greens, Springs, JBR, Dubai Marina, Barsha...Just NOT Jumeirah Lake Towers. Hate that area cause it feels like a ghost town, although I know deals are pretty good there. I also know that Discovery Gardens is a nice area, but I feel it's kind of deserted. Anyone got any leads?

Totally tired: off to bed now...
