With Rob Schneider and Solaire COO Thomas Arasi, after Rob’s show
Even I can’t believe that I woke up in the relatively blissful peace of a beautiful boutique hotel by the sea in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania the other day — and then I finally went to bed in Manila after the very successful Rob Schneider stand-up comedy show at Solaire Resort last night.

And somewhere in between waking up in Dar es Salaam and going to bed in Manila, we had a very nice last lunch in Tanzania at a place called Cape Town Fishmarket.
DAR ES SALAAM’S MOST STYLISH RESTAURANT
It was simple but chic, with good seafood and a stylish vibe.
Cape Town Fishmarket is perhaps the best place to eat and hang out in Dar es Salaam, and it was full of expatriates that day.
We shared everything, and we ordered lobster, fish and chips, and assorted Japanese sushi to start.
And then finished off with an incredibly good brownie topped with homemade vanilla ice cream.
The coast of Tanzania is famous for lobsters, and so we ordered lobsters whenever we saw it on the menu.
BACK TO REALITY.
HELLO, ROB SCHNEIDER.
After lunch, we went back to our hotel to pack, and then it was off to Doha on Qatar Airways, to connect with the flight to Manila.
Upon landing in Manila, it was literally straight to Solaire Resort to catch the preparations for the Rob Schneider comedy show that Travelife Magazine partnered with Solaire Resort and Establish Events to produce.
A FULL HOUSE OF LAUGHING PEOPLE
We had a full house of nearly 2000 people last night, and everyone was laughing from Minute 1.
The front acts were great, and Rob Schneider really brought the house down.
He had two standing ovations at the end.
Emcee: Eri Neeman
Front acts: Mike Unson and Alex Calleja
After the show, Solaire’s new COO, Thomas Arasi, and myself, went backstage to say hello to Rob. We’d all enjoyed the show and I’d laughed way more than I had ever expected to do so.
