Nope. Still Can't Properly Open Ketchup Packets.

I feel I've become more self conscious and inhibited.
For example, anything I think is worth blogging about turns into a 'no one wants to hear about that!'-type internal dialogue minutes later.
Like right now, I'm thinking: What are you typing? No one wants to read about your insecurities.

I'm afraid this is all I've got for the moment.
Anyway.

Today there was a piece in the paper about a mufti denouncing "faking one's virginity."


Last week there was another one talking about how women should not be allowed to go on the internet without a male guardian present.

It amazes me how these people handle issues of this magnitude with such grace.
I mean, really?
That's what you want to talk about?

What will it take for these people to wake up?
It's not cute anymore.


Saudis will get me on this;

Why is everyone in this country so angry about the Dubai metro?

I know we're jealous of the progress the UAE has made, but really we need to stop hating.

Rofl, shouldn't be allowed to go on the internet without a guardian? oh dear.
Sometimes they don't try to give a solution, but instead just shutoff everything to avoid the hassle, "aaahhh.. i can't be arsed.." or something like that. x_X
And haha, Saudis are angry about the metro in Dubai? Jealousy sure know its' way around with us Saudis.

Why are they angry about the Dubai metro? I've been out of the loop for a while - well, out of the country, and haven't been reading the local news.

Feeling the hate sister.

Also, who's mad ? Hell this should drive people's asses top them and do something better !!

And, having the same "No one wants to hear about that" blogging thing. Blech.

IF YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT KIND OF PROGRESS THE UAE HAS MADE READ MY LATEST POST. IT WAS WRITTEN BACK IN APRIL AND I FORGOT TO PUBLISH IT UNTIL NOW.

BY THE WAY SAUDIS ARE NOT JEALOUS OF THE SOCALLED PROGRESS OF THE UAE. ACTUALLY EMARATIS SEEM TO BE JEALOUS OF SAUDIS. THEY ARE TRYING THEIR BEST TO BE THE SUPERPOWER OF THE KHALEEJ IN WHATEVER WAY THEY CAN. WETHER UNITING WITH QATAR AND BAHRAIN, TRYING TO BUILD A BRIDGE BETWEEN THEM AND QATAR. TRYING TO CLAIM LAND THEY THINK IS THEIRS EVENTHOUGH THEIR EXLEADER SHEIKH ZAYED 35 YEARS AGO SIGNED AN AGREEMENT WITH KSA THAT IT IS ACTUALLY SAUDI LAND. THE UAE IS HEADING INTO SELF DESTRUCT MODE JUST TRYING TO COMPETE WITH KSA. AND IN A COUNTRY SO SMALL THERE IS A LIMIT ON WHAT YOU CAN SELL BUT BY THE LOOKS OF IT THERE WON'T BE MUCH LEFT FOR THE EMARATIS ONCE THEIR GREEDY LEADERS FINISH ''MODERNISING'' IT'S ACTUALLY ''PROSTITUTING'' THE LAND. YOU JUST HAVE TO SPEND SOME TIME IN THE UAE TO REALISE THAT WHAT I'M SAYING ARE FACTS.
BY THE WAY THE METRO SUCKS. I DON'T SEE EMARATIS USING IT. ONLY THE FOREIGNERS. IT WAS ACTUALLY BUILT TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT DUBAI HAS A METRO TOO AND THAT DUBAI IS A MODERN STATE. WHAT DA FUCK! WHO CARES ANYBODY WITH MONEY CAN BRING INDIAN LABOURERS AND UK ENGINEERS OR AMERICAN OR WHATEVER THEY WERE AND TELL THEM TO BUILD A METRO FOR THEM. I WOULD RESPECT THEM MORE IF THEY ACTUALLY DESIGNED AND BUILT IT THEMSELVES BUT JUST LIKE ALL ARAB STATES THEY WORSHIP THE WHITE MAN AND HAVE NO FAITH IN THEIR OWN PEOPLE.
THE UAE IS FASHIONABLE NOW BUT WILL BURST SOONER OR LATER AND QATAR WILL BE THE NEXT FASHIONABLE GULF STATE AND THAT WILL BURST TOO ETC.....
I FEEL SORRY FOR ALL THE LAZY EMARATIS THAT WILL GET HIT REALLY HARD WHEN THAT BUBBLE FINISHES BURSTING. WE WENT THROUGH THIS IN THE 70'S AND 80'S PRODUCING LAZY SAUDIS AND THEN BANG WE WERE HIT REAL HARD IN THE 90'S AND WE HAVE LEARNT FROM OUR MISTAKES AND NOW YOU DO SEE SAUDIS WORKING REGULAR JOBS TO MAKE A LIVING.
JEALOUS? NO.
WE JUST FEEL SORRY FOR THEM BECAUSE THEY KNOW NOTHING YET.

HRH KING AL RASHID.

"Faking one's virginity?" "Women not allowed to go on the internet without a male supervision?" I just don't understand why they have to be such big issues to be on the paper.

Ubergirl, I always enjoy and appreciate your opinion in your blog, so please keep posting though you feel "No one wants to hear about that". I think there are others who feel the same as I do. I look forward to your next post.

Fatwas are getting more and more ridiculous with each passing day.

Hey ubergirl87
I'm a Canadian university student currently procrastinating on writing my final paper for my International Media course. It's due tonight (aaaaaahhh). Anyways I'm writing an essay about blogging in the Middle east and I'm using your blog as one of my sources. I've been reading through a lot of your posts, and I find them truly inspiring and fascinating! I just wanted to tell you to keep doing what you're doing. If someone like me, in Canada, is reading your blog, than chances are, there are many others who are interested in it as well. You're getting your voice out there, in a country where it's difficult to do that, so good for you! I'm officially an avid reader of your blog and will be checking back regularly.

Sounds frustrating Uber.
Don't think no ones interested I am. I wish you updated more often.
You could get a hand held devise and write your thoughts really easily.
Ketchup is full of high fructose corn syrup and you don't want to eat that stuff anyway.

The male guardian on the internet. Ha ha ha, that is really funny. Well I know I can't be trusted on the internet.

Also, Jeese louise the commenter going on and on about the Dubai metro being built by foreigners. Reminds me of those England for the English people. Come on guys, expertise travels all over the world. That's how things get done.

That's just plain ridiculous, are they so blind to see that a man can do more damage than a women when it comes to surfing the internet?

I mean, seriously.. What are they afraid that she would do? Ugh, lack of freedom!

Hello, I just blog hopped here...

These fatwa-issuing bigwigs don't realize that it's men who are more dangerous on the net! And hey, maybe they don't know that their own sons, nephews, grandsons, etc. are ogling cam-girls in chat while their ever-honorable bearded ancestor is issuing rulings that are so un-Islamic, preposterous, not to mention ridiculous.

I believe that religion loses its meaning when the followers are swayed by narrow minded people like that.

Dubai metro? Yeah, the expats use it because they're used to public transportation. The natives would rather take a ride in their own cars, thank you. I'm not an economist, but Dubai can really slide down in a short time if the people there remain indifferent.
