Arabian Night

I'm involved in a major UAE project. As negotiations are drawing to a successful close, one of the key project managers decided to hold an Arabian Night party at her home, instructing us to turn up in "something Arabian".

Not having anything remotely Arabian, I popped home after work to glue on some fake lashes. After all, one of the things we've noticed are the gorgeous lashes of the Arabs. The sales reps at M.A.C. told me these lashes were the "most natural-looking" of the lot, so I thought why not? The lashes, a pair of gold toned dangly earrings, and a sheer black skinny scarf around my neck bought my entry pass into the party.

The thoughtful hostess prepped the whole week to serve us copious amounts of food. As I was not familiar with many of the guests, and new to the group dynamics, I kept busy observing how the table quickly filled up with beautiful platters.

It was a pity everyone left so early. I planned to, but was surprised everyone else did as well. Especially since it was soon after the thumping of belly-dance inducing music came on.

Ooh, I love the fake lashes! Coincidentally, I'm into them recently but still at the trying-to-get-the-hang-of-putting-them-on-nicely stage. :(

Haha, I know you are the one on the bottom right, but (coincidence again!)I've the same pair of earrings as the ones worn by the girl on the top left pic! I just love dangly earrings.;P

CDR: I had the sales rep put it on for me, and I watched every step. I can do it very carefully and slowly. Haha, those black earrings are mine too. I lent it to a friend.

lms: You clever girl!
