My fabulous Friday
The UAE-based YouTube personality – with over 21,000 subscribers – occasionally enjoys disconnecting to live in the moment
I enjoy Emirati culture. I’ve been making an effort to learn Arabic for a while now. It’s a struggle trying to fit it in, but I pick up bits at work and interacting with friends. We’ve installed a new majlis area at home inspired by local Emirati seating – it’s my happy place. I love spending time playing with my son on the weekends and that also acts as a cardio workout (try running after a two-year-old kicking a ball). I also make time to go to the gym for some high-intensity training and when the weather is warmer, swimming.
During the day, I’m a lecturer. It’s an interesting balancing act and it can get overwhelming at times. Sometimes I haven’t uploaded a video as I needed to just be me or focus on my family. Weekends are also spent catching up with British TV, which both my wife and I enjoy. Nothing beats a dose of or
with a nice cup of coffee.
