MoWrOw’s News and Funz BLARG!!!: 2012 in review

This is pretty neat, custom site stats in the shape of a wondeful animated brochure; thanX WordPress!!!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

The best Burj Khalifa 2013 fireworks I can find sow far, plz comment if you have better footagez.

JibJab Year in Review 2012: The End is Here

I was at JBR beach, and there were some shellingz 8|

OK OK it was fireworks, but they were real close, only around 30 meters from me :O Sow close that I felt like I had to retreat to avoid possible injury😛 My cell was low on battery and mom called at the same time of filming sow this is all I got haHah.

Anyway I was not too far from Atlantis’ 2013 fireworks and some other place’s too. Sow had 3 firework shows in 1 row haHah😄

Other than that, I walked around JBR for 3 hours, and witnessed some of the celebrations.

Hilton hotel had half the beach blocked for some live concert:/

Meydan Beach’s Cafe Del Mar had some fire joggling, along with the some House music. THey said they sold out all seats, with 1,800 tickets sold a day before the event, and were closing off sales at noon the same day, standing tickets.

Habtoor Grand and Royal Meridien weren’t sow annoying; they were playing some oldies and swinging 60’s, with a huge screen with donowot on it.

Live Cooking Demos

Attended the first live & real cooking demonstration in my life, this time at Taste of Dubai in DMC, on March 16th 2012.

First Live Cooking Demos - Taste of Dubai

Especially liked the demo by Jason Vale (The JuiceMaster), who makes juiced veggies an essential part of his life, and by doing so, claimed to have lost the title “fat flaky boy” cause the juice not only made him loose loads of weight, but rid of his skin allergy. Juiced veggies (without any sweetners) taste sow good, even kids loved it 8D

There were loads of delish samples from fresh veggie juice, energy / relaxation drinks, bread dips (pestos, oils), flavored nuts, flavored grape juice, chips (like falafel chips!), oat cookies, cheese (e.g. flavored Lavachkiri’s), instant meals, etc.

The paid food & beverage was sow darn expensive, at 3-4 times the regular price due to the small portions😯 One interesting dish was the Broccoli Pot, which is a basically broccoli pudding (not too sweet or creamy) 8]

The only real bummer was the cooking class queues. Those were around 30 to 45 minutes long, and one had to stand in them for the entire duration without reserving space for anyone. What happened for me was I was waiting in queue with a friend for around 20 minutes until a second friend arrived. I had to escort him in from the entrance so when I came back I went back into the queue where my first friend was standing.

When the group behind me noticed our size increase, they complained to the staff. Soon after the staff refused to have another person added to the group, I left the queue just to realize that my first friend actually left on an emergency call without telling me, and we lost the whole spot anyway 8/

Finger Flashing Epidemic!!!

There’s a new (well since March 5th) epidemic in the UAE, and it is serious!!! A Finger Flashing Epidemic!!!

Image

All reports were made by police officers (mostly in civilian clothing), and none of the defendants jailed yet, though one has been charged for 6 months (also for driving dangerously) but has been acquitted.

2 were forgiven (sincere apology, insufficient evidence), and 2 are still being investigated (1 claimed that finger was itchy, the other claimed that if done then would have been with left finger since the plaintiff was on the left).

Tanura Dance

Went on an organized desert safari for the first time, this time with ATNT by dune bashing, tanura show (amamamamzing!), belly dancing, and a loooooooooooooooooooooooong queue buffet at a desert camp spot

What really amazed me was the tanura (dress in Arabic) show. Absolutely not what I thought, though the dancer does keep turning (FAST and for over 10 minutes 8O) in colorful dress,

it’s more like a magic show where the dress suddenly seperates into mutliple layers and lights up, cloth & babies start coming out of nowhere, and discs keep multiplying, which are held in such ways that make them look as if they were glued togetherz 8S

The video shows multiplicity, super-speed-split, light-shows with rainbowz, & a baybeh?!
