Being in Dubai for an extended period of time has allowed me to enjoy various aspect of the Dubai lifestyle – from the tourist and business side to the extravagant over the top lifestyle. Nothing beats the private pool and massage rooms at the Burj Al Arab. Tammy and I enjoyed her 7 star b-day present last week with amazing views of the Palm. Another of such events was the Top 100 Gala. Ahlan!, one of the top magazine’s here in Dubai, publishes yearly a list of Dubai’s Top 100. They identify these people as the trendsetters, style icons, unsung heroes, and the up and coming. This year was their 5th annual party and they made it a big splash.
Dana Jallad, the owner of Sugar Daddy’s Bakery, was elected as one of the 2009 top 100. She was out of town during the event so Aaron Brown and I went in her place. We enjoyed partying with the “who’s who of Dubai.”
The celebration was at the Westin in the Marina district and was a top red carpet affair. Upon entering we had to walk the red carpet for a photo shoot (photo credit ITP Publishing) then we partied the night away. It was great to network and meet various Top 100 and we enjoyed the delicious food. They had various bars set up for drinks, fruits & veggies, Shwarmas, and of course dessert. Our wonderful Sugar Daddy’s mini cupcakes were among the amazing sampling of sweets.
