The arab royals may have the money but they certainly have no class.

I read once about a travel organiser who said that Indian royalty of the early 20th century had class but these arabs (despite all the money)have no class at all.

Parlez-vous anglais? Read my most with open eyes, a sober mind and patience... I said it doesn't look royal to me and I did underline the "to me" bit knowing that someone would quote me in the fashion you have.

Wear a miniskirt, wear a neon green kurta, hunting boots and grow a moustache like the Indian cops do and trust me, you will not only make heads turn, grab attention and (as you say) show others you have the "power to do anything", but also put a smile on many faces. I wonder how many Arab royals are already considering this... LOL.

Read more in Maharajas of India by Ann Morrow. She quotes someone who has dealt with Indian royals and arab royals and he is of the opinion that they shower money at everything but have no class.

now there has been a try at not using the SMS lingo, but still you really need to do it more consiously to ... not discouraging you or something, but just that we follow a bit of rules.
