Kari posted message below on our group wall: “Calling Martha Stewart Fans!!! Martha Stewart is coming to Dubai! FIA is invited to the launch and signing of her new magazine at Tavola MOE. It’s on Saturday 18th June at 14:00. Please arrive a little earlier so to purchase a magazine and form a line for the signing. Magazines will be available at the store. Who is in?”
I got excited and was the 3rd one to reply and immediately called C announcing that Martha is coming to Dubai. We checked our weekend schedule and confirmed that the children’s party that Saturday will be at 5pm. Lucky me!
We arrived at MOE around 12:30 noon headed to straight to Tavola to make sure that we arrived before the scheduled time which was 2pm. Vierte by then has been asking where his friends are and why are we at Mommy’s place. Coy suggested that we eat something first, Vierte immediately announced that he’s hungry.
It was nice to see that not only women lined up to see Martha Stewart, a few men with the newly launched Food and Wedding magazine in hand waited as well. I also met some FIA members Mishti of Stovetop Dancing and Kari of Chef and Steward.
Martha entered the room with a big smile on her face and apologizing that we had to wait for her. I didn’t realize that she was tall maybe as tall as I am, even Coy was surprised how tall she was.
She asked if we waited to long for her and how was my day. I already felt that we had a special bond.
A big THANK YOU to Tavola for bringing Martha Stewart to Dubai.
What a moment. I don’t know much about Martha Stewart and it doesn’t help that I read a book about her penned by her best friend. It was full of nasty. Still, seeing all the books she has written I still believe she’s one very talented lady.
I didn’t know about that nasty write-up. Despite the negative things that has happened to her she still is an inspiration to many. It’s just a matter of seeing the good in one person (which is sometimes hard).
looked like a great afternoon!
Hi Abby, I thought that was exciting,meeting Martha for the first time. I was excited when she followed me on twitter how much more for you … to see her in person is awesome!
Thanks for dropping by. I hope to see you around!
wow Martha following you on twitter! I think I’d have a little tea party to celebrate the occasion.
I was there, too! Didn’t get a photo opp though. Nonetheless, ain’t we lucky!
It’s always nice to read blogs of other Pinay expats here in Dubai.
Hi Gracie! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Are you blogging too?
