Still a part of Dubai Summer Surprises, The Collectors Exhibition, where the Emirati collectors shared their unique collectibles.

Ahmed Mohamed Saleh Al Aqeeli - took up collecting vintage sunglasses two to three years ago where he mentioned that he has glasses worn by Saddam Hussein.
Azza Al Marri - her collections includes old times like authentic radios, bowls, precious antiques, daggers, and precious stones.
Fathya Al Qassab - proudly owns more than 1500 pieces of toys inside the Kinder Surprise chocolate.
Salem Al Shaqsi - well known throughout UAE for his unique craft of modifying cars.

I've got a photo of this 1972 Mini Moke Car at Burjuman Center. Mini Moke is a vehicle based on the Mini and designed for the British Motor Corporation. The name comes from "Mini" the car with which the Moke shares many parts and "Moke", which is an archaic dialect term for donkey. (Ref - Wikipedia)

The Collectors Exhibition lasted July 24 and I was glad to see some of those Emirate collections. I was supposed to post here one of the garments worn by Sabah (the Lebanese singer known as the "singing bird" across the Arab world) but the photo i got was not good.
