I have been smitten with Absolutely Fabulous since I saw the New Year's episode on a Singapore Airlines flight on my way to Korea. The misadventures of Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) and Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders), the dry wit of Mother (June Whitfield), long-suffering Saffron (Julia Sawalha) and daft Bubble (Jane Horrocks) are a DVD away from lifting my mood after a long day.

The diversions to Harvey Nichols department store and brilliant satire of public relations (I PR things! Lulu!) are just the beginning. I had always felt the need to pay homage to Eddy and Patsy at Harvey Nicks in the United Kingdom. But I think Patsy will eat again before that happens: I haven't been to London since a couple trips to Eastern Europe since 2000.

Well, on the way to another coffee meeting last month at the Mall of The Emirates in Dubai, I stumbled upon Harvey Nichols. I just had to snap a picture. With AbFab celebrating its 20th anniversary with new episodes and its hilarious Sport Relief skit (watch a hilariously tragic clip here), the timing was prescient. After all, even though the first episode of Season Six started slowly, Patsy redeemed the episode in the end, and the next one was wickedly funny. We cannot wait for the Olympics special, and rumor has it BBC wants another season.

What these delirious dames really need to do is film an episode in Dubai. But I am afraid the United Arab Emirates would never be the same.
