    VIP Lounge Martin Sheen DIFF

    Ever wonder what a VIP celebrity treatment would be like? All last week during Dubai International Film Festival, Al Qasr Hotel opened the VIP Lounge, a suite showcasing numerous UAE based brands for the celebrity guests from around the world.

    The closing weekend up DIFF flew by faster than the whole week before it. Both Madinat Jumeirah and Mall of the Emirates were packed all day on Friday and Saturday with people trying to see the last film screenings of the festival.

As much as I love seeing movies, I could see how sitting in a theater for up to 12 hours could be exhausting. ...

    particle fever

    Unfortunately I was only able to see one film each day for Day 5 and 6 of DIFF. However I'm thankful both films were really enjoying and exciting to watch. They offered me a little break from the heaviness of Day 4.

    Although I really wanted to take part in the honoring of Nelson Mandela's life by attending the gala screening of Mandela:Long Walk to Freedom, the film was completely booked. So I got the chance to ...
