Outdated Road Advertisements

While driving I have noticed a few outdated road advertisements on the streets.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!!
