Dubai skyline

Last time I went through Dubai, it was during a dust storm and I could hardly see much. Today I was amazed to see these pictures of Dubai skyline. It is interesting there is no oil money in Dubai, it is all international trade that has caused sprout of this magical place in desert.

Have a nice weekend.

Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce and Gabbana have recently shown their future collections (2012/2013), and these are stunning. Colors of the spring collection and gold embroidery on the fall/winter collection are breathtaking.

Most of us may not wear these clothes but they are a pleasure just to look at and inspiration for artistic minds.

Hyacinth, bow tie and a sunny weekend

It seems spring has arrived early this year, Hyacinths are already in bloom. Temperatures are in 70s for the last few days. We had a wonderful weekend, though my better half and I had plans for a low-key weekend but it turned out to be otherwise. However I still managed to spend some quality time in my garage. Got my new bow tie and Pocket Square in Saturday mail that I ordered a week back. On Sunday chickened out at the last minute from watching “A Separation” the best foreign film Oscar winning Iranian movie. It was such a beautiful day it was a crime to sit in a theatre for two hours.  Instead drove my yellow SL that has been sitting in the garage for some time and was begging to see some sunshine.
