Back

I am on my way coming back. I miss home, bed and EDGE. I was away for 9 days and sick for the last 5 days. You name it and I had that infection. Fever, flu, cough, headache and finally when I though I am over it I got attacked by severe stomach ache. Another 9 hours and I will be back.

Ants in the Desert


This ant leaves home today morning at 7AM to pick up a news editor. Gets out of the house to find insane cockroaches(Bus), Spiders(SUV) and ants(sedans) on the road. In patience he looks at other impatient friends at the rood but is still in a good mood. The sun roof open, breathing the fresh air and thinking this is a pollution free world while listening to BBC world which is one of his favorite radio station. 15 minutes at the first intersection and 30 minutes to cross 10KM's drives him crazy. He still is smiling and looking at the positive side of the day till one cockroach cuts him off. That was it!!! This ant becomes a fast and freak like others on the road. He starts the swearing session with the cockroach then moves in and out of the lanes...left....right...center ..in the parking of burger king..crossing all the others...then crossing all the others by taking the inner road from Hard Rock cafe to Shaab till all of a sudden he looks on his left lane to see he is side by side the same ant with he started moving with at the start of his trip. Now that was hard work for no reason. He starts hating every ant on the road. The old ants (married females) are too slow and deep in the thoughts of the hard time their partner is giving them at home. The old ants (married males) are starring at young ants(females) and young ants (males) are going insane chaising any ant on the road. The old ants (married females) are pain in neck as they are too slow. I flash at one I flash at the other and the third one shows me a finger. With shock I ignore this ant and think she is crazy and go on with my worse road trip till I reach my destination of 30 KM's in 1 hour and 30 mins..This ant is @@##$$ and not liking this this this traffic any more...This ant will take the same route tomorrow but on EDGE.

A gift from Switzerland


I got a call from Aramex that there is a box for me from Switzerland. I was surprised to see that a big box with some Swiss chocolates, a beautiful hand made and really creative card that has my motorcycle picture on it, I pod, a small key chain with EDGE written on blocks, a block pad, and a small note from my best friend. I was really surprised and extremely happy as I was so busy and tired with work and then all of a sudden this big box with so many small little cute items and a lovely card to make me smile.









P.S. For some reason everything that is red is appearing pink in the pictures up.

Busy Weekend...

This weekend has been really busy so far. I have been really spending a lot of time at my business which means I am not back home before 12AM. Its fun though because I don't realize when the clock strikes 11PM. I am learning a lot of new things from my dad so we are constantly in touch. I ask him for advises and then call our suppliers and tell them what we are looking for.

Last night I went out with my friend in his corvette and guess what we always used to speed up after Bnaidar thinking there are no cameras or the police wont really stop us. Last night there were surprisingly a lot of police cars and they were chasing every car they found over speeding. We were one of them ;p All i know is that we were on 270km/hr but the police guy said that his radar caught us on 170km/hr. So he goes like usually we have to take away your license but I will just give you a ticket. We didnt argue as we knew we were wrong :D but the most funniest part of the story is at the end when the police returned us back the registration book and the license. He was like do u want to sell your corvette? Then he goes btw which model is your corvette? Now the first question was ok to ask but the second one was the most dumbest question he could ever ask. I mean when he took our registration book to write the fine the year was on it!!!

After getting a ticket we went to the newly opened starbucks in Nuwaiseeb. It was really crowded there. I never expected it to be like this. There were a few other guys in their sports cars but I didnt feel that I was in the middle of the desert. I felt like I was somewhere near Marina Starbucks. I just hope in future I get to see less people there as I hate crowded places.

BTW a guy hit on me....OH I should say he is a gay. Last night I was feeling hungry so I went to the KFC in salwa where this gay boy works. He was talking to me in a flirtish way but the worse part is when he gave me my meal in a bag he touched my hand. I was like WTF!!! I mean fine ur gay and I respect that but why the hell you have to touch my hand. I was really pissed at him as this is the second time he did that...If he does it again he is will get good ones from me!

How was your weekend? I have been missing on riding so I will wear my gear and go for a ride now :D

Resignation Letter

Dear Boss,

You know why I want to resign?

Since I worked for you, I have no time to blog anymore. When I don't have time to blog anymore my readers hate me. When my readers hate me they don't visit my blog anymore. When they don't visit my blog anymore, my hits drop. When my hits drop, I become unhappy. When I become unhappy I will eat a lot. When I eat a lot, I will get fat. When I get fat it will effect your company's image. When your company's image is effected your business is no good. When your business is no good you become unhappy. When you become unhappy you eat a lot like me. When you eat a lot I am afraid you will become fat like me.

You see Boss, it's a vicious cycle. I did everything for your own good, because I care for you Boss.

So the conclusion is I want to resign. Please let me go la.

Yours Cheesily,

Amu

Resigned


Its been days I have been thinking that am I making the right decision? Will this effect my future? How will it effect me? Will I be able to have a stable income with my future decisions? All these thoughts really kept me busy. And its been one last busy year managing my job and business together by spending 15 + hours every day and returning back home with headache or body ache.

And finally today I resigned looking forward to a much more hard working future and developing my career. I know I will be having much more stressful days in the near future but at least I will be concentrating on my business. My aim in life is much more than a job and that's what I will be aiming for. I know its a tough decision but I have trust in myself that I can do it. Its been over 5 years since I started working. First as a teacher (where my love for kids started), then moving to Kuwait University as an computer engineer and then finally to my present job from which I resigned today. I would never regret these 5 years plus of great days with a lot of experience that I am taking with me to put in my business. Not to forget some of the great colleagues at work and outside with sweet and sour work relationship. Some became friends and some hard core enemies. Its all part of great experiences in life!
