GPS Carlos Melia two AMAZING weeks in Thailand

GPS Carlos Melia two AMAZING weeks in Thailand  |  And we are back in New York, after spending two AMAZING weeks in Thailand, planning and producing Rubin Singer‘s Fashion Shows in Bangkok and Koh Samui. Always a treat to spend time in Thailand, a country I carry close to my heart and always draws a BIG smile in my face. So many old and new friends there, could not be happier. On this trip, my fifth time in Thailand, we visited and spent time in Bangkok, Golden Triangle and Koh Samui. OMG so many photos and videos to share, that will take me forever, therefore I decided to do this summary of our time there. You can read more on the individual posts I have been doing pre/post and will do after our stay at the category Thailand. (photo above at the Four Seasons Koh Samui, where we were hosted for a full relaxing day having spa treatments and lunch at the beach)  Continue reading GPS Carlos Melia two AMAZING weeks in Thailand

Beyonce Life is but a Dream Premier NYC

Beyonce Life is but a Dream Premier New York  |  New York, United States  |  Last night we, Rubin Singer and I, were invited by Beyonce and HBO to the avant premier and after party of Beyonce’s HBO documentary ” Life is but a Dream “. The movie premier hosted by Beyonce herself and Oprah, took place at the Ziegfield Theater. Later on the after party, which BTW was lots of fun, took place at Christie’s.
A brief intro and presentation hosted by Oprah, set us off to a 90 minutes documentary on the life of Beyonce. Lots of backstage, onstage moments, and a very interesting introspection to Beyonce and her entourage world. The path of a child becoming and superstar. I really enjoyed the movie, just thought it was a bit too long.
Once the avant-premier was finished, a few of us were invited to the after party, which took place at the Christie’s building in Midtown. Beyonce ” Life is but a Dream ” a film by Beyonce Knowles premiers Saturday, FEB 16th at 9PM on HBO. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

To TIP or not to TIP is the question America

To TIP or not to TIP is the question America  |  United States  |  This week on a rage after a unfortunate incident at the curbside of the Delta Airlines Bags Check IN area at the Louis Armstrong Airport in New Orleans, I posted this comment on my Facebook Wall. A comment I have been holding for over 8 years, and it came out of my last Monday without any filter. I must say that I am guilty of generalization, and I publicly apologized for that, but despite of that I still stay firm on my believe that the TIPPING situation in the United States is ridiculous and blown out of proportion. What do you think ?. If you want to see the whole thread, I invited you to check my Facebook Wall @ Carlos Melia Facebook Profile. There is over 40 Comments and 55 Likes. What I like and most enjoy about this open platforms is that everyone can express how they feel and their point of view, in a polite and respectful way. As I always say Agree to Disagree , correct ?
And for the RECORD everyone what started this comment was not a waiter. Was my taxi driver and the Delta Airlines guy checking my bags at New Orleans Aiport. After he tagged my bags, he looks at me and says… We work on tips here. Really man.!!! You just charged me USD 60 to check my damn bag, after I paid USD 644 for a RT Ticket NYC / MSY / NYC and you still expect me TO TIP YOU.? Hell NO. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

GPS Carlos Melia LIVE from New Orleans

GPS Carlos Melia LIVE from New Orleans  |  New Orleans, United States  |  SUPER Morning New Orleans. Hosted by the Beyonce‘s Team and along with my partner Rubin Singer, as said by The New York Times, the Man who gave Beyonce a Super Style (read more), I flew yesterday to New Orleans where I will be spending the next few days till Tuesday.
 I spent the entire day yesterday at Beyonce‘s compounds watching the rehearsals for the Half Time Super Bowl XLVII performance of tonight… and I just have to say SHE WILL KILL IT. Such an amazing professional, perfectionist to the last detail, kind, charismatic, BEYOND sexy and most important of all, same as all her family including Miss Tina – her mother – beautiful humble human beings.
My partner, Rubin Singer, has designed the entire outfits which Beyonce along with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child and 150 backup dancers will be displaying and moving with incredible energy and power tonight live from the Mercedes Benz Super Dome in New Orleans. Time to put my EGO aside and let them shine, as they well deserve.

I am staying at the Windsor Court Hotel, former Orient-Express property, right on the French Quarters, till tomorrow night, and then moving for my last night to the International House Hotel. Unfortunately, since I am in charge for the Social Media for team Rubin Singer, I don’t think I will have much spare time to explore New Orleans as I would have liked, but this will be an amazing preview indeed.
Thank you Beyonce, Miss Tina, and Team Beyonce for the front row vip tickets for the Super Bowl XLVII tonight. I will be there taping and taking photos to share them with all my followers. The styles for tonight, are still kept in secret.
So this is for now, LIVE from New Orleans. Busy busy day and looking forward for tonights show and after parties. Stay tuned and have a lovely Super Bowl Sunday. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
