By George!

I think I’ve found the ultimate fat-busting, cellulite-banishing remedy!

Ready for it?

Enter Dubai Mall, (largest mall in the entire universe) and get lost for 3 hours! All while pushing a pram with a 12kg sleeping baby-log and a 6-pack of Evian. Whew!

Ok, so the ‘getting lost’ bit is totally subjective. It is a pleasant disorientation, at the very least. For once, Sticky Baby actually slept his entire 2-hour nap in his buggy, giving Papadada and I an unprecedented leisurely shopping time-slot. Ahh, the joys of wandering in and out of shop after shop after shop after shop. Flagship Manolo Blanik store anyone? Don’t mind if I do! (window shopping, of course...boo, hiss). Papadada ummed and aahed over Carrera sunglasses as I ducked in and out of an obscene amount of retailers. Result? Nada! Zilch! Super-fun, nonetheless.

Still loving Dubai. Still hoping to cross paths with a camel, a sheikh prince, or Sarah Jessica Parker on a re-shoot of SATC2.

Speaking of which, I am doing my utmost to channel the fashion of the Sex & The City gals in their latest flick. Harem pants, full-length play suits with colourful wraps, chic sandals. I die.

Heading to the hotel pool for an afternoon swim with my very own Mr Big (and my Mr Small too).

وداعا! Salam! (I think that’s goodbye in Arabic)
