Something about the hat, the shirts, the chest hair suggests Festrunks from Saturday Night Live.

Craving for something sweet? Want to throw caution to the wind and tuck into some baked goodness?

Then you need to come down to #BakeFestDXB - the event for community bakers here in Dubai. We had a lot of fun when we did it last year, and we're going to hold it again at the new and improved Wild Peeta which can accommodate a LOT more people.

So if you're hankering for some homemade cakes, pies, cupcakes, and other melt-in-your-mouth wonders, then book your attendance via the Facebook or Twitter links below. We are all booked out for tables, but you are still more than welcome to come down and buy some of the wicked treats on sale :)

Need a recap of last year? Video here, photos here, here, here, here, and here.

RSVP through Facebook or Twitter!

Paris Hilton's Dubai BFF Episode 3

More groundbreaking television content....

Obviously after bagging on the consumption of alcohol in a previous episode, they logically visit a night club to go clubbing which obviously the first place you go to where alcohol is definitely not consumed under any circumstances.

On the Capture of Osama Bin Laden...

The question is not whether or not Pakistani officials knew about the whereabouts of Bin Laden, but why were they harboring him. Obviously, he was being kept safe in an ISI safehouse. The US was being taken for a ride for all these years. Good on Pakistan and shame on the US for being so feckless up till now.

Sorry, I know not UAE news, but its a story with some relevance here nonetheless--we're part of the larger geopolitical sphere.
