Late night run

Post by Mark

cone

For some reason 2 nights ago I decided I would start running every night and today was my first run. I left my house around 11:30PM, 3 and a half minutes later I was out of breath and feeling all dizzy and disoriented. I knew I was out of shape but I didn’t know things were this bad. After taking like a 5 minute break I decided I would run back home. 2 minutes later I was taking another break. When I finally made it home my total running time without the breaks was 6 and a half minutes.

Last time I went running was 2 years ago and back then I could run for like 40 minutes. I wasn’t in the best of shape but compared to the state I am in now…

I got home 20 minutes ago and took a shower and I have yet to catch my breath. I am still breathing heavily and I am feeling kinda dizzy. I feel numb. At least my sneakers still work.

Lots of information on calling shotgun but surprisingly no mention of the “shotgun breaker”. [Link]

List of faux pas

Post by Mark

In Saudi Arabia, it is considered polite and a sign of friendship to hold hands when walking. This does not have the romantic connotations it does in the West.

Ah that explains it… [Link]

KDD Cola Lolly

Post by Mark

keep cold

Finally got to try out the KDD Cola Lolly. They are nearly impossible to find because those KDD ice cream sellers on the streets don’t sell them and the bakala’s also don’t stock them. Today though I got a call from Nibaq telling me he had found a bunch at KDD in Shuwaikh. So he came by to Salmiya, popped open his trunk and pulled out a Keep Cold fridge. Inside it was stocked with lollies of various flavors including the hard to find Cola and Passion Fruit flavors. Now it seems the Water Melon Lolly is the only one remaining to be found.

By the way, the Cola Lolly tastes like frozen gummy cola’s. So its good.

New York Friez

Post by Mark

new york friez

When I was in Canada I got introduced to Poutine and ever since its been a favorite dish of mine every time I visit Montreal. Around a year ago I found out New York Fries had opened up in Kuwait so I went to check it out because I knew NYF from Canada and they used to have Poutine. NYF had opened up next to Souk Salmiya and my first experience was a mess. Firstly it turned out they were called New York Friez not Fries meaning they were just copying the name and look of the original franchise. Secondly although they did have poutine on the menu they couldn’t make it right. Poutine is french fries topped with cheese curds and brown gravy but I got served french fries with chili and cheese. According to them it was because they had run out of gravy. I was like fine but you should have told instead of trying to pass me chili cheese fries as poutine.

Anyway that was the last time I went to them until today. I was meeting up with Nibaq near Johnny Rockets Salmiya and I noticed New York Friez had opened up right behind them. I was like let me give them another chance. I go in and ask the waitress if they have poutine, she was like yes and she showed it to me on the menu. I tell her great can I have one. Then I was like wait, how do you make your poutine, whats in it? She was like chili and cheese and fries. I was like thats not poutine, poutine is cheese, gravy and fries. She went to the back asked the cook and came back and told me no poutine is chili, cheese and fries. I was like no thanks and walked out.

Things like this piss me off. If you look at the picture I took from their menu you will notice they can’t even spell poutine right. In UAE they have the official New York Fries but sadly they don’t have poutine on the menu. But at least there they don’t try passing chili cheese fries as poutine to their customers.

Here is info on poutine at Wikipedia. [Link]

Just random pictures of you guessed it, hotdogs.. [Link]

By the way, who has the best hotdogs in Kuwait? I have only tried Fudruckers (here is the review) and Hardees. I heard Johnny Rockets makes good ones also.

How much of your favorite energy drink or soda would it take to kill you? Turns out it would take 336 cans of Pepsi to put me down. [Link]
