A splendid cheap eat place in Jumeria.
The seriously surreal tiny Thai restaurant is called Smiling BKK. It's a tucked away in a small side street, but it is worth finding as it's quirky decor and authentic Thai cuisine are fantastic.

Just back from camping on Jebal Ali beach - the last time before the summer gets too hot - it's about 37 deg C currently during the day.
We had just set up the tents when a visitor buzzed in from the skies. This is a powered paraglider. It was very graceful and looked pretty easy to maneuver. I want one...

Another iBO shot - and another blurred image - however, again I really like the bluring on this.
Is it revolution or is it marketing? Is Paul Frank your friend? Or is it time to over throw?
Ask Paul here : Paul Frank

This is a shot of Dom from Stanton Warriors playing a top DJ set last night at Dubai's very best club iBO.
It's a huge loss to the city that iBO is to be demolished to make way for the new Dubai metro. The guys from 9714 (the promoters behind iBO and the owners of the great shop Five Green) are making Dubai a far more trendy and fun place to be.
May 31st - iBO R.I.P.

It could be classed as vandalism I guess, but I quite like the texture that these home made bill ads give to the street corners in the older parts of town.
It's like the street classified section. You can find many things here, homes, jobs, education, food and more...
I've also seen some pretty odd requests such as "Computer technician required - must be able to play music keyboard"...

I've no idea if you'd call this worthwhile or not... I like the results and the totally random nature of the shots. This was taken with a candlelight setting in a room with 2 bright light sources.
This shot was taken using the camera toss method of photography.

Any plant experts?
These feel almost alien species to me - take near Margham - which is the only oil field in Dubai and will run out soon.
Not to worry though - Abu Dhabi (the capital of the United Arab Emirates) is still sitting on 10% of the known world oil reserves...

Ordinarily I'm not the biggest child fan... however this kid is way too cool for school!
I love the fact he's going nuts while his parents are pristine perfect scarlett and rhett... frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

Yesterday was The Dubai World Cup. This is billed as the world's richest horse race.
Over the day there are 7 races with a total prize fund of US$21 million. The final race is worth US$6 million alone...
