Freaky Fridays: Dubai Edition

This one is old news, but still pretty freaky.  Some ad agency in Dubai made this for local Chinese restaurant.
It didn't run.

BTW, i don't find it offensive, but then i'm not Chinese.

Things I Covet

1.  Peace in the Middle East

I wish this region peace and prosperity.  I want to go to Syria and visit ancient Allepo and Damascus, experience famous Syrian hospitality and perhaps, buy a piece of gorgeous damascene furniture.  I want to go to Beirut and enjoy it's sites without being constantly security-checked and re-checked at most entrances.  Is it too much to ask?

2. Barbour Quilted Jacket

This is probably temporarily insanity, but since i came back from France a week ago, i've been obsessed with Barbour jackets.  It was nice and cool 15 Celsius and parisians looked tre chic in their black scarves, black boots and black quilted Barbour jackets.  Girls had those ugly doctor-bag looking satchels hanging from their shoulders, some in brown distressed leather, some black and some (horror!) neon colored.

Satchels i don't care for at all, but quilted Barbour jackets rock my boat!

3. Pastel Colored Jeans

Is one ever too old for pink colored jeans?  Is there cut off date to apply to the pastel-loving club?
Am I past my baby pink-jeans wearing exparation date?
Oh, the conundrum!

Plus, I'd like to purchase an ass and legs like Christina Millian's

Dubai World Cup 2012

So, back on March 31 Dubai held it's own World Cup 2012.  Ruler of Dubai won the race this time, so my belated congrats to him.  Also, Tony Braxton was dragged out of the attic box, where she is being stored together with some moth balls and sang some songs.
Umm, what else... Oh, yeah, ladies wore hats.

In order to provide some meaningful commentary - because, after all you can just see the pix anywhere - i've broken this down to several categories:

Mad Hatter Couture (speaks for itself) :

Looks like this one is made out of hair.  Gross.

Also this one

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (and grabbed some feathers):

I like this one - something that Evil Queen from Snow White would wear to the races.
Also, the woman is beautiful.

Someone's excited

Girl, This Is Not a Hat :

Greek Goddess

My Personal Faves:

I like them because some of them are understated, yet pretty; some unusual but classy at the same time and some are just playful.   To be honest, i also like everyone's head gear in "Girl, This Is Not A Hat" category, but technically, they are not hats.

So, here you have it folks.  
Whadda ya say?
