Mariah Carey's Diamond Gift

Mariah Carey's Diamond Gift (Photo)

Some fans send flowers and some letters, but the gift sent by the Sultan of Brunei's son to songbird Mariah Carey is sure to top her list of fans for a very long time to come, for he sent her ₤3 million worth of diamonds.

24-year old Prince Azim, who is third in line to the Sultanate, showed just what a huge fan of the singer he really is when he gifted her an eight-carat flawless diamond and platinum necklace and matching ring, reports the Mirror.

And, the gift was delivered by private jet to the 'Emancipation of Mimi' singer just before she performed live in front of 20,000 fans at New York's Madison Square Garden recently.

"We were sent by private jet to deliver this gift," a representative said.

The gift certainly seemed to have the desired effect, for fans and guest performers both left the concert raving about the singer and her voice.

World's Greatest Driving Road

Just have a look What they have created in a desert...
The Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the greatest driving road in the world. Stretching for 7.3 miles and climbing nearly 4,000 feet, it boasts 60 corners and a surface so smooth that it would flatter a racetrack. It could easily be described as the eighth wonder of the world, but almost nothing is known about its creation.

The road is cut into the Jebel Hafeet mountain, the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates , the oil-rich Persian Gulf state. The mountain spans the border with Oman and lies about 90 minutes' drive southeast of the thriving city of Dubai . It looks down upon a dusty, desert landscape that belies a nation of astonishing wealth.

Why men don't talk to each other in public toilets ..

I needed to pay a visit, so I found a public toilet that had two cubicles.
One of the doors was locked.
So I went into the other one, closed the door, dropped my trousers and sat down.
A voice came from the cubicle next to me: "Hello mate, how are you going?"
Although I thought that it was a bit strange, I didn't want to be rude, so I replied "Not too bad thanks." After a short pause, I heard the voice again "So, what are you up to?" Again I answered, somewhat reluctantly, "Just having a quick poo.. How about yourself?" The next thing I heard him say was ..... "Sorry mate, I'll have to call you back. I've got some d*ckhead in the loo next to me answering everything I say."

Everything I really need to know, I learned from Heather Locklear

  • If your "significant other" leaves town for more than a week, sleep with whomever you want. After all, you can't be expected to wait around forever.
  • When selecting a partner for casual sex, don't overlook your boss and coworkers. They're close, convenient, and best of all, you know exactly how desperate they all are.
  • A good way to unwind after a hard day at the office is to build a fire, curl up with a good book, and rapidly drink seven large glasses of straight vodka.
  • Every once in a while, just go ahead and slap somebody in the face, really hard.
  • Pretend you're pregnant.
  • Feeling a little insecure? Buy a gun!
  • If your marriage isn't working out, don't bother with a lengthy and embarrassing divorce proceeding. Just fake your own death.
  • Don't walk too fast when feigning blindness.
  • Never base a relationship on lust alone. Always combine lust with calculated self-interest and, if possible, revenge.
  • When you leave someone to die of carbon monoxide poisoning, be sure to shut the door tightly on your way out.
  • Don't date drug dealers...unless they're really good-looking...or have a lot of money...or unless you can gain something from it in some way...or...oh hell, go ahead and date drug dealers.
  • Don't get too close to people in comas. Sometimes they wake up and try to choke you.
  • If you get fired, get drunk.
  • Call your ex-wife, "Baby."
  • If you've got to fix your Harley, you might as well take off your shirt and do it by the pool.
  • Randomly insult the people around you.
  • Parents will be parents. Sometimes they'll nag. Sometimes they'll be judgmental. Sometimes they'll commit you to a miserable insane asylum where you'll be bound in a straitjacket and heavily sedated.
  • If you lose your job, wait a few minutes and you'll get an even better job at twice the salary.
  • Your sister's husband always makes an ideal mate. After all, you have so much in common -- he hates your sister just as much as you do.
  • Just because you're in the midst of ruining someone's career doesn't mean that you can't carpool to work with them.

28: There is no reason for guys to watch Ice Skating or Men's Gymnastics. Ever. We've all heard about people having guts or balls. But do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definition of each is listed below:

"GUTS" is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being assaulted by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to say, "are you still cleaning or are you flying somewhere?"

"BALLS" is coming home late after a night out with the guys smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the ass and having the balls to say, "You're next!"

We hope this clears up any confusion,
