First time back out

Post by Mark

Me in Gear

I just came back from a short ride on my Ducati. It was my first time back out on the public roads since my crash 2 months ago. I was kind of nervous which is natural but not afraid which is a very good thing especially after a crash. I rode in Salmiya in the area around my building but there was a bit more traffic then I thought there would be. For my first ride I think I did fine.

Before I rode out on the streets I rode my bike a bit in my buildings underground parking. I did some 8’s with the bike and also some braking and moving, braking and moving. I still need to get the hang of my bike.

My wrist by the way still hasn’t heeled healed. I passed by Razzi Hospital two days ago and they told me I had a torn ligament in my wrist and still needed two months to heel heal. They told me I should rest my wrist for these two months and I shouldn’t ride the bike. Thing is in Kuwait there are only like two months of the year where you can actually ride the bike so I am not going to waste them giving my wrist a rest.

I am going to do a bit of riding everyday, small sessions not to kill my wrist but also just enough to get me the hang of the bike and give me some practice before I decide to go back out onto the main road again. Can’t believe I am riding again, it feels amazing..

Shuffle is soooo tiny

tiny shuffle

Finally got my iPod Shuffle from Amazon. Its really tiny, a lot smaller then it looks. You need to hold it in your hand to really understand how small the thing is. The package should really contain a spare shuffle since it would be so easy to misplace one.

Badar Al Badoor 2

I passed by Badar Al Badoor 2 today and the branding of it doesn’t resemble the original branch. This could mean it might be a fake Badar Al Badoor.

This is how the original Badar Al Badoor looks like [Picture]

Badar Al Badoor 2

Someone told Badar Al Badoor opened up in Salmiya in the restaurants road. The new branch is called Badar Al Badoor 2 which is pretty cool.

Here are the driving directions:
If Platinum gym is on your right, drive towards the sea side. After Platinum there should be a speed bump and a left turn. Take a left and drive straight and you will get to Badar Al Badoor 2.

I don’t know how many cookies exactly I had today but I know I had toooooo many. Final results are in though and here are the cookie rankings:

First Place: Oreo Cookies
Second Place: White chocolate chunks cookie mixed with Nutella
Third Place: Plain cookies with a Nutella core

The results were based on my personal favorites and the reaction of fellow employees

Cookie Night

Post by Mark

cookies

Tonight me and Nat passed by the Choowy Goowy bakery to make our own cookies. Originally I had planned a whole variety of cookies to make but due to the fact I am extremely lazy I didn’t get all the ingredients I needed plus the lack of a deep fryer at Choowy Goowy meant I couldn’t fry any cookies anyway.

The result of two hours of baking were the following types of cookies:

– Chocolate chunks cookie
– Chocolate and white chocolate chunks cookie
– Rice Krispies with marshmallow cookies
– Oreo cookies
– Cookies with smacks and a Nutella core
– Plain cookie with a Nutella core
– Cookies mixed with Nutella and white chocolate chunks
– Cookies mixed with Nutella and Frosties cornflakes
– Plain cookies with chocolate fudge on top

I tried a couple of them and they are really really good. Its going to be hard to choose only one to produce. I got a whole bunch of jars filled with cookies I am going to take to work tomorrow and share them. Really delicious cookies.

The Irish Car Bomb

Post by Mark

irish car bomb

I just found out what an Irish Car Bomb is. I was telling my friend about the Torpedo, which is when you drop a shot of vodka into a pint of beer. In return he told me about the Irish Car Bomb which is when you light on fire a shot filled half with Baileys and half Irish whiskey and then drop it into a pint of Guinness. You are supposed to drink it as fast as possible before the Baileys expands and reacts with the Guinness curdling it. How did I not know about this??!
