Monday Links For The Week …

Hello everyone … have you all had a good weekend? we sure did … even though I was suffering with Tonsilitis the end of last week and spent the whole weekend on antibiotics and feeling abit rough … we still had a great time and a very packed couple days … On the Friday we were invited for a BBQ at the home of one of Perry’s colleagues …

So we show up and expect a normal BBQ some burgers and maybe a few kebabs etc … you know standard BBQ stuff … but what greeted us when we walked into the garden was this …

photo 2As fully catered garden BBQ … with waiters so attentive as soon as my drink was finished I was holding another one before I’ve even had time to ask …Only in Dubai would this not be considered as over the top!

The food was great and it was the first time I met the people Perry works with … everyone is lovely and very friendly … we spent the afternoon eating yummy food and chattering away with everyone … before leaving once it started to get dark …

photo 1We did a whole bunch of other stuff over the weekend but I’ll save that for another post later this week …

Anyway back to the point … below are a selection of stuffs I’ve been perusing on the internet this last week … a few funny things … and a recipe or two thrown in for good measure … enjoy …

  1. PEOPLE ARE LIKE CATS – INDOOR OR OUTDOOR? … hmm … interesting comparison … I’d have to say Perry and I are probably tipped more towards the Indoor Cat type … not a bad thing really …
  2. BURNT MATCHSTICK ART … pretty pictures …
  3. DIY EASIEST CARD HOLDER EVER … not a bad idea … and you can customise it to any colour you’d like …
  4. 25 OF THE MOST INGENIOUS UNIQUE WATCHES YOU’LL EVER SEE … some of these are pretty awesome!
  5. BABY ELEPHANT AT MELBOURNE ZOO … such a little cutie elephant!
  6. THE PERFECT PAIRING … quite a cool idea and an interesting photo series …
  7. MILESTONE BABY CARDS … a somewhat unique idea for a baby gift … both practical and different from the usual toys/clothes …
  8. ULTIMATE CARAMEL POPCORN … this sounds pretty yum actually …
  9. GLUTEN FREE CORN FRITTERS … been looking for a good corn fritter recipe … will have to try this one …
  10. WHITE KNUCKLE AIRPORTS … some pretty terrifying photos of some of the most precarious airports you can fly into … if your afraid of flying I’d avoid visiting these places …
  11. 25 YEARS IN THE MAKING … After posting his painting of a Lion head which went viral on the internet the 25year old Hong Kong based Artist posted this article online documenting the development of his artistic skills from the age of 2-25 … pretty amazing to see actually …

Thanks for tuning in … and of course if you have something interesting or random to share please leave a link in the comments below …

Till next time …
