AROUND THE EMIRATES

Travelling the globe and living like locals, this is @gran_tourismo’s Dubai take on a weekend breakfast. “Scrambled eggs with Arabic sausage and Za’atar toast, the #Dubai edition of weekendeggs http://bit.ly/N6qXLK #recipe”.

We know it’s summer and oh man it's hot, yes that hot, @DubaiNameShame “Just been to Garhoud and back and it’s so hot even my car was sweating!”

We’d love @maximumwasta to let us tag along for a laugh: “One of these days I’m going to cruise by a club with my windows down blasting NKOTB - Step By Step”.

PROMOTIONS

The Diet Coke bottles are very cute. @DXBConfidential: “Win Limited Edition bottles of Diet Coke, designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier! >> http://www.dubaiconfidential.ae/food-drinks/win-6-x-limited-edition-bottles-of-diet-coke-designed-by-jean-paul-gauthier/”.

We wouldn’t say no! @carolineindubai: “So who would like to win a trip to BKK from Dubai, including flights? http://t.co/3rUv30FQ”.

Give them a treat and help the fur babies survive the heat. @LivingSocialUAE: “Pamper your pooch with our latest offer from Shampooch:?http://goo.gl/bXJFJ”.

NEWS

@NicRidley: “Two deaths of children in hot cars in one week is two deaths too many! http://shar.es/tHfho via @TheNationalUAE”.

Having seen quite a few cars being towed away these past two months, we think you should take note of this advice from @TheNationalUAE: “Follow our step-by-step guide in dealing with an impounded car in the UAE http://bit.ly/N6P7XH”.

@TheNationalUAE asks you to tell us what you think about this growing problem: “Lack of parental supervision the biggest factor in rising gang violence in #Dubai say 42% in our poll. What do you say? http://bit.ly/Mbmc12”.

TRENDS

We are still loving the #AStories trend. Started by @abdulla885 and @ADHashemi, the #AStories have grown into a humorous look at Emirati life. Keep them coming.

@sultandarmaki: “He never knew how much his long hair and pink Nissan Super Safari makes him look like a creep...and he never will...that’s life #AStories”.

@manar_alhinai: “She told her friend look a 2 digit plate number go closer! When they reached turned out to be a RAK plate. #AStories”.

@Reem096: “He stalked her on Jumeirah beach road. He came closer, threw his number inside her car. Turn out she’s his sister. #AStories”.

@abdulla885: “His hair is longer than hers, she asked him for few hair care tips plus his blackberry pin, they lived happily ever. #AStories”.

@ElhamAlArif: “She said ‘baby let’s have a romantic dinner’, he picked her up in his fully tinted windows all around & had mcdonalds in the car #AStories”.
