I Love This Movie…

My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me
That I must love a loath├Ęd enemy.

The end still makes me so sad. Then again, practically every Shakespeare play makes me sad at the end, especially King Lear.

3 more sleeps until I’m packing up and heading back to Australia!

One More Week

So this time I’m heading back to Australia, next week. Last week my Mum and I went to an Emirati wedding which was AMAZING. This is the invitation, the whole ballroom was done in the same floral design and the stage where the bride eventually appeared at 1am was in the shape of the flowers. Wow.

RIP McQueen

Honestly, I’m kind of heartbroken, he was the most creative, talented, innovative designer. I might shed a tear at any second :(

Beautiful Textiles

I love the Satwa area of Dubai. Satwa is one of the oldest suburbs in Dubai and has tons of great textile shops. I’ve become particularly obsessed with one little shop called Fida (opposite the Satwa Clinic if you’re ever in the area) that has beautiful big cotton scarves for 10dhs and huge ones for 20dhs. I plan on getting some kimonos made out of them now I have extra time here but deciding what fabric to use is so confusing. They’re all so bright and cheerful!

Currently watching Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers. It’s about the private security forces and contractors in Iraq and the money behind it all. Absolutely fascinating. I feel that it’s always important to know how your government is spending your money.
