Culturally Inappropriate Product of the Day: “Lolly Dolly”

Can’t people just sell a camera bag and keep it at that?  What on earth were  the people at Crumbler thinking when they decided to sell this camera bag with a photo on it like that ?! And then add a lovely name like “Lolly Dolly” to go along with it?!  A dude dressed up like a lady?!  This product would have looked strange enough to me on a shelf in Vancouver, but in Emax in Muscat, Oman? Bizarre! And even the product description on Crumpler’s website is odd: found here.  You never know what you’re going to see next!

Does the Crime Fit the Time? 3 Months /3 Years

From today’s edition of Muscat Daily’s Legal Roundup (on page 3).  3 years for stolen phone.

Here’s a link to another jail sentence report from the same paper dated March 31st of this year.  Death of a 4 year old girl forgotten in school bus – 3 months in jail.

Someone we know is leaving for Dubai in a week and is hoping to sell their VW Touareg as soon as possible.  She doesn’t want to sell it to one of the 2nd hand dealerships as they never give you a good deal for your car.  I told her I’d post it on the blog to help her out.  Here’s the info:
