Yesterday was my last riding lesson. After a total of 10 lessons I am now ready to take the riding test so I went today morning to get an appointment. I was expecting the guy to give me an appointment for sometime this week or worst case an appointment for sometime next week. The guy took my learners permit and started stamping it and writing down my riding test date when I saw him write in Arabic 12 October. So I told the guy nicely could you please make it earlier then the 12th, the guy looked at me and said this is the 21st of October not the 12th. I was like shit, ok could you make it earlier then that, he replied no and gave me back my papers.
Now I have to wait 3 weeks before I can get my license. I was really hoping to get it now so I could use the month of Ramadan to practice on the streets. The Gulf Road is deserted at around 6PM which would be perfect for a newbie like me. By the time I get my license now, Ramadan would be over.
I passed by TriStar today again since a friend of mine wanted to buy a jacket from them. Nat was with us and I wanted to show her “my dream bike” which I posted about yesterday but turns out it got sold on Thursday night right after I left the place. It was originally parked between the red and yellow Ducati’s in the picture above.
Nat has had her eye on this phone for a while now and it just got released. Barrak the local dealer dont have it yet but Xpress Cell do and are selling it for KD145. The price is bound to go down soon though once it becomes more available. I am going to pass by and check it out tonight. If you want to call Xpress Cell their number is 808880. [Link]
There is a girl who hasn’t changed physically or mentally for 12 years now. The girl is still 9 months old even though she is supposed to be 12 years old. She has a condition that has no name and no other person has this condition. She is stuck being 9 months old forever. There is a video of her and more info after the jump. [Link] #

I just updated my Baba Taher Restaurant review. I was there over the weekend and I managed to catch the place when it was empty so I took a picture of the inside plus a picture of my dish. If you haven’t checked out the review yet now would be the best time. [Link]
Ok, I still don’t have my riding license yet and I know I haven’t even ridden my bike yet but already I am dreaming of my next bike, the Ducati 749. I was at TriStar yesterday and I saw a black one and it was really really really cool. It was matt black so it looked really aggressive and the front end is just super sick. The bike reminds me of Airwolf for some reason. The price was around KD4,700 but they would probably drop it to KD4,500.
Whats cool about bikes is that for KD5,000 you could get something really amazing but if you were buying a car you would end up with some low end shit like my Wrangler. Anyway everytime I pass by the dealership I fall in love with a different bike. Its crazy, now I understand why Brad Pitt has so many bikes, he probably buys one everytime he visits the dealership.
