The one on Alpha Females

I always complain about how women make the worst managers/ heads of units et al. CUZ THEY DO! and i feel strongly about it because i have seen how cranky they get, professionalism doesn't mix well with PMS, i presume.

ANYWAYS. so there i was today (with 3 hours of sleep and back to back meetings from 7 AM).. and at around 12 pm, having witnessed a mini dispute a la cat fight, i was really at the end of my rope. Bear in mind that i am still sore from an encounter earlier this week with my in-charge. Totally uncalled for, totally unjust! So when a similar thing happened today i couldn't help but announce to everyone that: women will always be women, it doesn't matter if ur in a hospital (work environment) or a meelas (socializing).. they would still gossip, take things personally or just try to make your life horrible... its what they do.

Our supervisor, another woman, heard the whole thing.. and went like: and what are u? aren't u a woman?

I wanted to tell her that I do my best not to be sucked into the pettiness.. But it seemed inappropriate. We just kinda laughed it off.. But i do feel strongly about this.

Correct me if i am wrong, but isn't having a woman as your boss the worst possible case scenario?

Maybe its a cultural thing, I'm not sure yet, but I'm pretty positive it applies to women en generale..

The nancy gonzalez event and the heart break associated with it..

Ok I have to blog about this, I don't have a pic on me but nancy gonzalez was in harvey nix dubai with a preview of the spring summer collection.. Here's what happened..

1800: spotted a gorgeous croc tote, it was huge, it was navy blue, and I loved it. Was told nancy is going to be here in half an hour.

1805: got a call from my cuz, wanted to do tea upstairs..

1830: we went down, the bag was sold out.

Only in dubai!

I am too bummed to take pics n blab about what was going on, u guys should check out her new collection on her webbie tho.

UPDATE: after a get together with the girls who told me that if it was meant to be then its gonna be mine, and that a better bag will come along.. and a recession talk that kinda got me thinking (although i do believe that the economy will be better off with us shopping) I felt that i can look up the bag online, BUT i could not find it online in that colour, also.. it was the first bag to go at the trunk show.

Its the Drawstring tote:

in blue..

I am not a huge Nancy gonzalez fan, but trust me: that bag was HOT! I thought the line would be a tad boring, mais au contraire. Her bags were flamboyant and fun.. Do check them out when they hit stores!

- to moving on :P xx.

Organisers claimed that the fireworks display for the $20m party could be seen from space."
