Ahlan's Hot 100?!?


You have got to be kidding me... I was passed a tape of a documentary made and screened by the BBC about Dubai's Hot 100 according to Ahlan Magazine... Ofcourse this hasn't been aired here, but some of our friends abroad decided to record this one... So I slip in the tape and watch..
half an hour of absolute uhm... how do I term this without being offensive...I can't.. it was absolute BS...

If these are the top movers and shakers in Dubai, man we're in trouble..

If a blonde model who opted to take her pic in a bikini (who changed her mind and wore a loose shirt on it) by mina alseyahi, and who mind you I didn't think had the looks,or the BRAINS, just the body... is a mover and shaker in Dubai...
then boy oh boy aren't we lucky to be in Dubai...

If a french party organizer who had organised the hot 100 party at the one and only royal mirage is a mover and shaker...
then my oh my aren't we lucky to be in Dubai...

“I love throwing lavish parties and equally enjoy attending great evenings like this one,” said His Excellency Kenyan Consul General, Prem Prinja, who is famous for his fabulous parties, thrown in the Emirates Hills.
He's a mover and shaker alright...
I guess he moves and he shakes with this 'lavish parties'..

We also have another club owner on this "HOT" list....

Gives you a great impression of Dubai..
How shallow can we get..This is appalling..

but then again... We are talking about Ahlan... UK's equivalent to 'Hello' Magazine... Now picture this... if Hello magazine decided to throw a party for the Top 100 in the UK, I really wonder where they'd get?!? actually I don't think Hello! would ever attempt such a thing...
This list was created for 2005.. I wonder whether they had one for 2006..

so read and weep...

I see you got your hands on BBC's Dubai Dreams eh?

Well, there are 6 episodes and some of them are floating on the net you see..

Anyway I wrote something about one of the episodes here. DISCLAIMER: This is purely my opinions, and I hope it does not offend!

Anyway I've seen this Ahlan programme, and it's totally disgusting. Thank the sweet Lord I have never come across those people in Dubai, and inshalla never will.

For surely God will punish me for wasting my time like that!

Hey Buj...
yes I also got the 'pleasure' of seeing that episode as well...
and for some reason.. I got the feeling that he had directed the documentary himself..
I think he's using his only good asset... he knows how to talk and sway people to the way he's going.. But very very few know that..
I think the funniest part of that documentary was the meeting with the Lawyer and Armani.. ' tell HIM this and tell HIM that...'
YEAH RIGHT... you SHOULD have told him YOURSELF...
I rest my case...

well well ya cosmic..

i really don't like the guy.. and if he tried to sell me a rolex from karama then i'd expect it to break down in front of him and he wouldn't care!!

i trust him as much as i trust a 2nd hand car dealer.

i agree the armani part might be funny.. but the rudest part was right at the beginning when he totally ignored this guy sitting with him.. and who was he? none other than the british ambassador. how rude. wallah, how rude!

inshalla he was the ambassador of israel, he's still in your office and i think u need to respect him and not talk to your stock broker about your stupid shares!

he just annoys me.

i heard that once (haha this is apparently secret) he told some ppl in his majlis that "ni7na shyoo5" and none other than sheikh mo (when he was crown prince) came up to him the next day and slapped him!

hmm, did i say too much?

Cosmic girl said...

hmm.. did you say too much...
dunno.. dunno who're you're talking about!!.. hehehe
by the way.. I checked out the Ahlan! website to check if they came up with a hot 100 this year...
looks like no one was moving or shaking this year...
:)
I missed out on the british ambassador part, it wasn't recorded from the beginning.. though I'd love to see all of the 'Dubai Dreams' .. very curious to see how we're being portrayed on the outside...

I also went to Cannes to see just that and I was utterly disappointed... as usual!!..

I wonder who's to blame really!!

I saw that last year the listng that is in their mag and my sister brought it home ..

I was disgusted and I said to myself, dude I know people better looking, smarter, and a hell of alot more relevant then this bunch of monkeys and they are so worth the title ..

A part of me was jealous I wasn't on the list lol

Cosmic girl said...

babyK... it looks like there was no HOT 100 this year...

maybe we should have our own... that way we'll always be on that list..
:)
