Big Night Out
Last year's auction (of fibreglass camels) raised Dhs 4.7 million, and this year's event should easily outdo that.
The only snag is that the invitation says 'black tie or national dress'. Since I own neither a tuxedo nor a Beefeater outfit, and my dishdasha's in the wash, I had to go to Satwa and rent a tux. Seems a bit weird going out to a posh do wearing somebody else's clothes.
