Back

I am back from the longest...most peaceful and relaxing vacation. I had a really good time and I have to say Turkey is a very nice country and one should visit if you get the chance. The weather was really nice there but I didn't really enjoy their food much or maybe I am just typical with the kind of food I enjoy eating. I guess thats it for now...should be back soon !!! :D

Country Cookies


I am a big fan of cookies and often I need to munch on something with a different taste after any meal. I was shopping at Giant last month when I picked up Country Cookies and they turned out to be really tasty.

I am looking for something different this time. I have been looking around to find some crunchy chocolate chip cookies. I like them to be filled with chocolate and hazelnut. I don't recall the name but I have had some really nice cookies in London. They were freshly made and really finger licking.

Do we have any nice places around here for cookies?

Outdated Road Advertisements


While driving I have noticed a few outdated road advertisements on the streets. I would say they dont give out a good image. Like the one above I took it yesterday when I got out of J.Marriott. The date on it shows 18 - 20 April 2010. I wonder who is responsible to take these off once the event is over!!!

The Yas Hotel





During my recent trip to Dubai/Abu Dhabi last week I decided to stay at the The Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi. I landed in Dubai, rented a car from the airport and drove to Abu Dhabi. The hotel is beautiful and the design is amazing. The staff is very professional. Its surrounded by the Formula One track and to be opened soon Ferrari World. The hotel is 15 minutes drive from the city depending on the traffic. The only bad side is the area is still under construction/bad direction signs to the hotel and back to the city. One wrong turn can take you all the way 180 degrees tour of Abu Dhabi before you can find another U turn. Overall I loved the place and wouldn't mind if its a bit far from the city I will definitely stay there again...

Happy Blog Birthday


The past week I have been so busy with work that didn't realise how time passed. While at the airport now before my departure flight to Dubai I just remembered that today its been 3 great years I have completed with my blog.

Great good days from ranting to sharing experiences about my daily life and the lovely bloggers I have been around. I would like to thank all of you who have been with me all these years...

Caught By The Weather

I had been really sick for the past two days. I have had severe body ache and fever which didn't seem to get better even after taking pain killers. I felt as if every inch of my body was in pain. I was in bed all time with the most weirdest feeling ever and now that I am getting better I just feel I am drained out and I need a break. I feel as if the world has fallen apart and I am not liking things around me.

I just hope this dusty weather goes away and this heat gets a bit less...

Interesting Friday

This weekend started a bit interesting and different from the usual. I woke up Friday morning at 5AM to join a friend at Early Bird in Jabriya for a quick breakfast. I thought we would be the only ones having breakfast there so early but I was wrong! They had a pretty decent crowd considering early morning. Had a Spanish omlette and orange juice which was good but a little heavy for that early morning. Didn't mind that knowing I had a long drive ahead...

My friend had just recently bought a new Ducatti Monster and wanted to break-in the engine with some extra km's. So the plan was he is supposed to ride while I follow him in my car towards south. I had my play-list on and had the cruise control setup and that was one relaxing 150+ km's drive and back. We stopped on our way twice..once to take a small break and second time to fill up petrol before heading back to Bid3a Starbucks for some drinks.

This wasn't the end!!


We then planned to watch 'Shrek Forever After' @ 360 mall after Friday prayers. I have to say I love that cinema and the crowd there. Its a bit different from other malls. Don't you agree? We had small sandwiches from Kurdos and rushed to get our tickets as we didn't book in advance. And there we were munching our popcorn while enjoying the movie. . .

My Teenage Crush


My mom thinks I am crazy since I told her I like her and the way she presents herself. I dunno whats there about her that makes me like her so much. If I see her on TV I am not moving away. I listen every word she speaks out. Knowing that I am not a type of person who would ever even say a word about any actress or TV presenter that she is cool or even complement how good they act. I guess I am having a teenage crush on her :P

So here I shout out LaaaaaaaaaaaaaaauDDDD ...... Iman Najem you RocK !!!

And the good thing is when I was checking on her picture in the gallery on Al Watan TV website her picture has the most views ;) More to come ....

Morning Traffic


Every morning no matter how early I leave from home it almost takes me 2 hours before I could get to my office. An hour on the road and the other 30 mins to an hour before I could park my car in the car park. The only solution I have is to leave at 6:30am which will take me then 45 minutes to get to Kuwait City and that's when I don't have to wait outsite the car park for another hour. But I am not lucky with that always as I have things to do almost most of the weekdays.

With this summer and the boiling weather I wish we had better bus service so I would either hop on it and get to my business or I would love to ride my bike and get to work. That would just make things much better. This is what I miss about London and their bus and underground network. Its just so convenient and the best I have seen so far. Even back in my college days there I would just be able to do everything on time as the buses and trains have a fixed time to arrive at the station.

Can't wait till September when the weather gets better and the riding season picks up again!!

Songs Playlist...

Do you link the songs while listening to them to the person who first recommended you to listen to it? I do a lot..At times I feel its weird but its just me...


90% of the songs on my play list are from people around me who are still with me today or I have known them in past. While driving when I am listening to them I often remember that person. No matter what memories I have with these people I always recall the good ones while listening to these songs...

Is that strange? Is there anyone out there like me?

Caribou Breakfast


One of my almost daily breakfast place is Caribou. With this summer heat I just want to have their coolers and a sandwich. But today I couldn't stop my self from having their cheese cake.

I have to say it was the best cheese cake I had in sometime. It was so soft and tasty that I finished it off without any pauses. It was *YuMMY* . I would recommend all cheese cake lovers to try it...

Dusty Afternoon Movie


As the weather was dusty and I didnt feel like working I decided to go and watch Prince Of Persia. The movie is really good and I recommend everyone to watch it. I cant wait for the 3D version of this movie as that will be worth watching again...

The New Ugly Porsche Cayenne


I was driving towards Marina for some business to finish when I spotted the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo. The rear lights look ugly. I feel they look like any Korean made SUV or like a Nissan Murano.

I am a big fan of Porsche but didn't like the new look at all...

To The Lady In Red Cadillac and 112

First you tale gate my car.

Second you cut my car missing it with few inches.

Third when I ask you to drive safely you scream at me in return.

Forth you have the guts to come behind my car and raise both your hands and show me your fingers.

WTF!!

What did I do?

Called 112 to complain (I must say they have an excellent customer service and I am really impressed)

They asked me to go to the police station and complain.

Arrived at the police station and the policeman asked me if I wanted to file a case.

Thinking what has happened a few weeks back I just didn't want that females to be pulled in court.

Left from there went to Caribou had a cooler to cool my self!!!

SHAME ON YOU WOMAN!!!

Iron Man 2



This is one movie that I am seriously waiting for to watch in 3D. The Iron Man 1 was really nice and looking at the trailer I feel this one will even be better than the first one.

No No No


I am sick and tired of fast food. It just takes me no where apart from making me sick in the next few hours!! I had already stopped Soda (Pepsi/Coke) for sometime but lately I started drinking again.

So I decided from today onwards no matter how much I crave for this junk food i will never have it. I will keep updating here with my progress... and if I break my own rules I pay the same amount of money I spent on getting a meal from any of these places to a poor.....DEAL!!

Cravings


Before I used to have these cravings after any meal when I want to eat something sweet. But lately it has turned into something odd. All I want to have is Ice Cream and Chocolate Molten Cake. Give me a bucket full of Baskin Robbins ice cream and I will finish it off in a blink. I have tried to slow down my self on these sweets but with no success especially when every second person in my family is diabetic. These cravings are so odd and annoying that now I can have ice cream even before any meal :s

I hope I get over them soon!!

Some time it means you are strong enough to let go...

Hassan Opticians


I have been running around to get my glasses fixed for the past two weeks and I finally received them. The way Hassan Optician has dealt with my request I feel ashamed that such a big company with such a good name deal in such a lousy way...

I bought prescription glasses from them last year and didn't wear them till mid of last year for the first time. Just recently I noticed that the coating on the lenses was peeling off. Since I knew that I had one year some warranty on the lenses I took it to them to get it fixed. The initial greeting at Al Manshar branch was really good. I was informed that I can drop my glasses at any of their brances and it will be fixed as .

I visited the Muthanna Complex Branch of Hassan Optics and the manager refused to receive my glasses for repairing. He said I need to go back to Al Manshar branch. We ended up in an argument and I asked him to call the manager in Al Manshar branch as he asked me that I can drop my glasses here. He called the manager and finally after few minutes gave me the time to come and pick them up after 3 days.

I went after 3 days to pick the glasses up and found out that the coating from the other lens was peeling off now. The manager said that this time I need to go back to Al Manshar branch as I got these glasses from there and both the lenses need to be replaced. I told the manager since it is your branch why cant you change the lenses here. He said no we have a policy where you buy the glasses from you take them back to the same place for any repair.

I picked up my glasses went to Al Manshar and GUESS WHAT??

The staff there had completely changed and they started blaming the old staff. To cut the story short they said they need 3 more days to finish my glasses. I said OK.... I went back to them after 5 days...this time they blamed the workshop people...they said they will finish it the same day. I told them I will pick it up after 2 days as I want them to do the job properly. I called them yesterday and they didn't finish the glasses still...This fumed me up and I was literally screaming at them. Finally got a call today that my glasses are ready. I went and picked them up and will never go there again!!! All in total 15 days to finish my glasses....PATHETIC!!!

Strange Incident


I came in my shop and before going to the office I opened the drawer which is next to the cash machine to find out a pack of cigarettes. I asked the salesman that who the pack belonged too as I know non of the guys that work for me smoke. They said a lady was crossing from here smoking cigarette when all of a sudden she stopped and gave a pack to us. They said that they even told her that they don't smoke but she still gave them the pack and walked away!!!

Strange Yet Funny :D

Al Kout @ 9AM


I had some work in Al Kout today morning so left early thinking might find heavy traffic on my way. To my surprise it was empty and the weather was beautiful. I kept walking as I reached early and taking pictures.

Sorry the pics are not the best quality as I took them with my Nokia E71.

Pinkberry

I had a lot of things to do in the in morning, went to the warehouse, then got back to my office in city and then to the GMC dealership in Al Rai to get my car service. All this took a chunk of my time and by the time I was done with the service it was nearly 1pm. I didnt have breakfast so I was starving.

After finishing with the service I went to Avenues and had a lunch at Fridays and then wanted to try Pinkberry for the first time. I was excited about it till I took the first spoon to find out that its not some vanilla ice cream. Its Yogurt!!!! I took mixed flavor with raspberry's, banana, mango and bluberry's. It was something different for me to try but I wont be going there again sadly because I am not a big fan of yogurt.
