I finally went to the charity photography exhibition yesterday at Beit Lothan and I was really impressed. The pictures on display were really fascinating. For some reason I was expecting to see photos of Cambodia as if taken by a tourist but practically all the photos on display were works of art. I am glad I went.
My motorbike license test is on Wednesday so today I went to bike practice with Nat so I could train a bit before the exam. It was my first time back on the bike since my crash over a month ago. I wasn’t on the Ducati today, I was back on the Bajaj Pulsar. At first I was afraid I had forgotten how to ride but I managed to get a hold of things quicker then I had anticipated. My wrist is still killing me and it was hurting quite a bit while I was riding but its not that big a deal. I just want to pass my test and get the license and then I can give my wrist all the time it needs to heal. Can’t wait to get back on the Ducati and ride again.
Alghanim Automotive sent me an email today informing me that they will be launching three cars tomorrow. The three new cars are the new Lumina, the new Caprice and the new Epica. All the car models will be on display including the S, SS and Royale versions. I will probably be going so I can check out the new Lumina SS. Here are some pictures they sent me.   
On my way to work today as I was passing Souk Sharq on the Gulf Road I saw a few police cars parked on the side and an ambulance. They were parked on the curb near where all the old wooden fishing boats park and it looked like something bad had happened. There was a large crane also parked and I figured something must have gone wrong. So I parked my car and walked towards the crowd. As I was passing the police barrier to get to the other side two cops stopped me and asked me if I was “joumhoor” meaning crowd in Arabic. I used my Miskan technique and just pretended I didn’t speak a word of Arabic, pointed towards my camera and then towards the sea. They were like OK and they let me stay in the restricted area.
Anyway turns out they were salvaging a boat that had sunk. Their were scuba divers in the water and it seems the ambulance was there just in case anything goes wrong. I snapped a few pictures and then left back to work.
you seriously want the best hot dogs that u can prepare in 5 minutes?
Wrangler smoked hotdogs
those are available in Sultan Center ready made except the chopped onions
Pan grill the hot dogs in butter. Place in bun wrap in paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds. Add condiments and enjoy!
So I went to Sultan Center, I couldn’t find Wrangler hot dogs but I found Eckrich Jumbo Franks. I also got brown mustard, hot dog buns and onions. I don’t like relish or saurkraut.
I tried to pan grill the hot dog in butter which I figured meant heat a pan, put some butter in it and then put the hot dogs. I think I messed up because I ended up burning the hot dogs nearly instantly.
Three hot dogs gone to waste but I still had more in the pack. I decided to play it safe. I ended up boiling water in a pot, then throwing in three more hot dogs, closed the cover and then removed the pot from the heat and left it for 9 minutes. When it was done I took the hot dogs, placed them in the buns and then put the mustard and onions on them.
The result? BORING! The hotdogs tasted average, the buns were dry, I think I put too much onions and maybe not enough mustard. In Conclusion… I am going to stick to eating hot dogs in restaurants because I can’t cook to save my life.
Was coming back to the office today on the Gulf Road when I spotted these bikers. They were performing stunts right in the middle of traffic. Once we got to the area just before Fuddruckers I decided to record some of their stunts with my camera. You can watch it above on YouTube.
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.
