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!!

Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak..

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.
