My fab­u­lous Fri­day

The UAE-based YouTube per­son­al­ity – with over 21,000 sub­scribers – oc­ca­sion­ally en­joys dis­con­nect­ing to live in the mo­ment

Friday - - Up Close And Personal -

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.

MOON­LIGHT­ING

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.
