I don’t know if it work well or if it’s just advertising but honestly I would love to see that in Dubai! If we could surf all the time here I think I would never leave the country!
I like the advice of Steve Jobs! Hope they cut the crap and get nice product only (Quality!!!!)!
You know I love Nike as footwear and product and here is an example of their creativity
but I hate when they do things that are against people well being! Don’t make kids work, don’t throw away homeless because politics are afraid to do it! Leave the people of Miyashita park leave there and make sure that you leave together! live with them not without them!
I’m currently fighting with some challenges with my hard drive and that is why I’m not posting! I might have lost all my pictures and music because my hard drive are not answering anymore so I’m upset…
It might be back soon but for the moment I just don’t feel it! But keep on your toes! I have a trip to Liwa with the visit of the craziest car museum ever and soon the UFC weekend to come…
Well I’m back from my trip so have to cope with work which is taking me a bit of time. For this reason I don’t really have time to look outside and the only thing that came to mind was that Flo Rida was there.
Honestly who cares of Flo Rida? It’s just radio music to drive you to the ads I think… But anyway how is the emirates nowadays? Well I don’t know!
I missed wakestock and 2 Many Dj’s, Elton John and Carlos Santana are playing to end the World Cup at the end of the month, David Guetta is playing sometimes soon, yes ok there is a Bboy battle on the 25th at the Shelter! That might be interesting! I will have a look… Maybe…
Well I miss the crazy Pop energy of Dubai! Before the crisis it was pop but funny but lately I don’t feel that.. don’t know as all the rest (Sports and job) is fine! Ah no I need to find a girlfriend too… Well let me try something this way
I always liked how casual he looked at the end of his fashion show! Dude enjoy your time there!
This is a post that is a little bit of an open letter to his Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nayan.
When I move to UAE about 4 years ago my favorites past time were drinking alcohol, going out until late at night, eating, complaining and chillin. At work I was working hard but was always nervous, thinking that I was the most clever guy and always impatient. In resume you can imagine that I was not the most pleasant guy and that life was maybe not so happy for me as I was driven by materialistic view and self destruction threw a pretty unbalance lifestyle.
When I came to UAE I started learning what is patience, respect and what could be a healthy lifestyle but was not willing to compromise on my smoking, drinking and partying! Even when doing Muay Thai it didn’t stopped me!
I will always remember the day I step into the Equestrian Club hall and look at the training. The first one, I was not really attracted but I decided to come to have a second look and decided to try then. I remember talking to a coach (Sid) who told me with a strong Brazilian accent “if you like Ju Jitsu too much it will change your life!” and it did!
My first training was hard, my second one was horrible, the third one I nearly throw up! I was like what is that?but carried on! The coaches were killing me just during the warm up! I found all the excuses like “they are all in the army” or related but didn’t give up! In my mind I said I will manage to understand and practise this sport whatever it takes!
In my first 2 month I got injured twice… then once or twice in the next two month again but didn’t give up! In the meantime I decided to quit smoking! More than 15 years of smoking and it was it in a day! No more cigarette!
Slowly slowly my life start changing due to Brazilian Ju Jitsu. Only once a month I would go out and drink. In term of food I start paying attention. At work I become so patient that all my challenge became a fight that I had to win with my brain and not my muscle (Big mouth)! It changed my life for the best and what I am today is the result of all the pain that I had to learn what I call The Chess of Martial Art: Brazilian Ju Jitsu.
Then about 3 month ago I moved back to Dubai for professional reason and all my friend asked me if I did find a club? I was so happy to say yes because it was not only a club it will become soon a family! Everybody here love so much the sport and the Brazilian coaches that Emirates team send us are our parents! We love them for all the love that their share with us and all the techniques that we learn with them.
Just as an example this weekend I run the 10km of the Dubai Marathon and I finished it without walking at all! It is such an accomplishment for me who didn’t run more than 45 minutes in a row in his life!
But tonight when going training I learned that for political reason Carlos Santos the head coach of the Emirates Team is not allowed to send them anymore to teach us the right way! We will probably have someone else, not from the Emirates Team so it won’t be anymore the Emirates Team it will be Abu Dhabi team and Dubai Team but for a country that just celebrate the union with Burj Khalifa it is sad.
So as I said I was in a business trip lately threw Germany (Frankfurt, Cologne, Baden Baden, Duisbourg) and Czech Republic (Prague). To be honest it was a really nice one even if I didn’t really have time to go sight seeing but I had a lot of fun! Like I said you need to build relation so party is work… no?
Anyhow I will come back on my trip but one of the city I had time to enjoy as a tourist was Koln (or Cologne?) so you will find know the picture that I took in the city! I liked it a lot because you find there a right amount of good architecture, nice history, well furnished shops and street or other arts… have a look…
The (Short) general view of the city
The streetart was really nice and it’s part of why Koln is so modern! Nice pieces all over
And the shopping options were really good!
The following video (In French) is about the brasserie were my dad (You can see him in the video) has been visiting for the last 40 years on nearly a daily basis and me for years at the same rhythm before I moved to Paris then the UAE.
Just a bit of nostalgia
From time to time I like to remember myself how bad is the night life in the region! To be honest there was few nights when the DJ saved my life (Mainly some D&B gigs) so when I see that! Bam this is Bam!
Guys bringin on! Let TwentyTen be the year of HYPE in the UAE! I want to move I want to get crazy I want to make love on the bit!
Well just do it because I’m sick of becoming fan of David Guetta because my hears doesn’t hear anything else anywhere else than my Ipod!
