Vacation Mode ON

It’s been a day in Lebanon and I feel so chilled and fresh. Despite the humidity and the country as a whole you can always enjoy the small things that this surviving country has. I recommend for those who haven’t visited Beirut yet then you must make sure it’s on your travel plan this year.  


Best fireworks show in the world…

Kuwait entered world Guinness book for the best firework show celebrating 50 years of constitution.

Jennifer Lopez soon…

November 22 is the date where the pop star JLO will rock Dubai. Tickets were sold out very fast upon the announcement of her coming to Dubai. However I managed to get one from my lovely friend. Hope this time it will be organized well.

In the past two years Dubai has become the ultimate destination for fabulous night life and even international stars are happy to perform in this part of the world.

Obama for another 4 years…

After a tense and bitter campaign, Obama rolled to reelection Tuesday night, winning a new chance to repair the nation’s economy and fulfill the promises of hope and change he made four years ago. Obama is the 44th president of the United States and first African American to hold such a position.

I really hope the US will change their foreign politics towards ARABS.

The Grand Avenues…

Too much hype recently going on regarding the opening of Avenues Phase 3 which will be tomorrow morning at 10am. The new phase is going to be huge in space and retails outlets brought in. Reviewing few blogs about the opening was really impressing to see the brands that Al Shayea is bringing to Kuwait. Apparently no need to shop outside Kuwait when everything is here. Some of the major stores opening are Harvey Nichols, COS, PINK, JO Malone, Cheesecake factory, Red Lobster…and much more. I think I will be able to go next week only just to avoid the massive crowd that will invade the new avenues.

Another Empire is on the way to Qatar…

London-based private equity fund Permira is in exclusive talks with the Qatari royal family over the sale of Italian fashion house Valentino and a decision is expected by the end of the month, four sources close to the talks said.

The Qataris, who also own London’s Harrods department store, have been one of the world’s most active investors with assets ranging from stakes in German sports car maker Porsche to shares in British bank Barclays.In March, Qatar Holding bought a 1.03 per cent stake in luxury conglomerate LVMH.

A sale of the entire Permira stake in Valentino would however be the first acquisition of a top fashion house by the Qatari family, where the wife of the Emir, Sheikha Mozah, is known for loving Valentino dresses.In a statement on Monday, Valentino confirmed it was in talks with a potential buyer but did not disclose its identity.

The deal is around 927 million dollars!
