Airplane Suite Anyone?

Behold the new addition to Singapore Airlines: The Singapore Suite.

The suite is a private room which costs upwards of $15,000, aboard the plane.

The Singapore Suite features a traditional bed—not one converted from a seat—an armchair that was made in Italy from Italian craftsmen Poltrona Frau, a 23-inch TV monitor and a full-length wardrobe. For the passenger’s dining pleasure, the Singapore Suite offers gourmet dining and a choice between Dom Perignon or Krug champagne.

It’s a suite life.. Get it? HAHAHAH

French MPs vote to ban Islamic full veil in public

So, the French have actually voted against the veil. There were 335 votes for the bill and only one against in the 557-seat National Assembly I don’t know how I feel about this actually. I mean, I don’t like it when my doctor is veiled, I wanna see her face. I don’t feel there is something wrong with veiled women walking around Paris, it will bring out the architecture lol. No seriously, I think that people should have the freedom to wear what they want.

What do you guys think?

Sunkissed, rested and ready to do it all over again

Royal-Mirage-DubaiSo, I am back from Dubai. I am extremely tanned and sunburned in a place or two, dreading the peeling. I stayed at the Royal Mirage.. Stunning. i hardly left the hotel.

I went to this amazing Lebanese restaurant in Downtown Burj, Bait Al Mezza and I got burned with sheesha fa7am! It burned my lovely outfit. But, I am OK, no harm done, physically, emotionally : I am devastated.

Saddam’s Bedroom is the Honeymoon Suite


A bit too unconventional for my taste. But believe it or not, the former Iraqi dictator’s bedroom at the presidential palace in Hillah, Iraq is now a honeymoon suite. The ornate palace is being renovated and the bedroom, complete with Roman columns and chandeliers, can be had for £150 (around $220) a night.



My colleague Ali took my advice and went to Rival in Paris last week.

He enjoyed the best burger ever with his Orangina !


Land Looking Sharp

One night business trips and party weekend trips leave you looking less than fab when you land back home. Thats about to change with YSL’s “edition 24” collection which can be put together creating 24 different looks.

Key words are “timeless-ness” and “versatility” which translate into pieces such as patent trench coats, cool safari jackets and tailored tuxedos jackets. There’s also oversized sweaters and chiffon dresses that can be rolled into a ball and tossed into a roller suitcase.


This collection will appeal to a broader and younger clientele.
