SPOILERS AHEAD

The movie’s title was “The Golden Age”, a thing we never saw throughout the entire movie, there was no golden age in that movie. the whole freedom and prosperity were enjoyed after we left the theater, coz it ended when england prevailed. all we saw was the terror. the terror of a catholic king, trying to force the nations around him to submit to Christianity as He knew it, claiming its God’s will. see here is where the new (more efficient) form of terrorism first came to the scene IMO. not individual terrorist, not a group of people, But a whole nation of terrorists! killing and invading countries with the excuse of following God orders (more like following the nations’ interest imo). in the old age it was about whatever threatens Catholicism, and now its about what threatens certain nations’ national security… History repeats itself.. I guess..

Anyway! King philip of spain, a real catholic, wants to invade England and restore christianity in its most pure form. he’s doing so by plotting a very evil plan of letting Queen elizabeth execute Queen Mary of Scots (Mary Stewart) and by doing so, he’d find an excuse to invade and kill Q.Elizabeth. Mary was, according to the movie, writing secret letters to help plot the assassination of Queen Elizabeth. the letters were intercepted by Queen Elizabeth’s people and were eventually used against Mary, which ultimately led to a swift trial that ended with the beheading of Mary. And the war began.

overall I liked the movie and recommend it. I generally like movies that have historic events (I like them less if there were lots of killings), Cate blanchett did an oscar worthy job. She was nominated for an oscar in 1998 for the same part (this movie is a sequel, in case you don’t know).

We went, me and loco, to an egyptian restaurant, Grand Abu Shaqra. its my first time in Dubai’s branch, I went many times with my family and friends to Egypt’s branch. I liked it back then and I was curious as to how good its gonna be in Dubai. I remember loving their bΓ©chamel sauce.

abushaqrah2.jpg

We ordered many things.. loco ordered lentil soup (he always order soup for starters.. i7ib i7is inahwa birmothan). we shared makarona bil bΓ©chamel (which was amazing!). and then we ordered the main dishes πŸ˜› 2 white rice (shown above) and 2 tajins, molokhiya and bamya.

We liked it there (loco not so much). I liked the atmosphere (we sat out) and I liked the service. I would definitely go back there again πŸ™‚

I loved using torrents when I first knew how to use them. but with time it got harder to find the files i want, especially with my service provider (Etisalat) blocking every useful website out there (they blocked flickr. the reason? still unknown!). But now with the new Xtorrent, I can search for the files without looking for any torrent’s site, it has a built in search engine to find the best possible torrents. I just launch Xtorrent, type in the file I want and I’m done!

Search Everywhere,
Easily Xtorrent is all about search. Type keywords in and the results show up right in Xtorrent. One click later and you’re downloading your content. It’s ridiculously easy… and it’s only in Xtorrent.

jazeera_airways.gif

we were still in sheikh zayed’s road at 7:25, so obviously we weren’t going to catch the check-in’s dead line (7:30). I told my sister in law to call the airport just to check if there were any delays on their plane’s schedule.. we were desperate! and my brother prayed for their flight to get delayed by 1 hour. and what do you know!! his prayers got answered! their flight was indeed delayed until 9:30! which means their check-in’s dead line was also pushed an hour to 8:30!

We called the airport again to check if the check-in too was open for an extra hour, just in case, and they said YES. so, now that we can finally breath better and take our time, we thought of using the extra time to go for a quick dinner at The Noodle House in the emirates towers. that plan was immediately shot down by my brother, “we don’t have much time!” he said.. πŸ˜€ saj wallah! lol *i don’t know what we were thinking, I guess we were just so happy with the delay*

at 8 o’clock we were at the airport saying our goodbyes. I called loco on my way back and told him all about the deadlines and how it all worked out at the end. 20 minutes later I was very close to my apartment and then.. BANG! I got this sms from my brother “we missed the plane”. I immediately called him and it turned that although the plane’s departure time was pushed back for an hour, the checkin time stayed the same!! it stayed at 7:30! the guy in the Jazeeraairways said that they should’ve checked in by 7:30 no matter how many hours the plane gets delayed…. can you believe this? I mean what if it got pushed for 4 hours?? why on earth would I want to check in and then wait in the duty free for HOURS to board the plane? jazeera airways suck. BOYCOTT anyone?

anyway, I turned back and picked them up. we wanted to waste some time until their 2am flight (on emirates airways this time) so we ended up having dinner in The Noodle House afterall! 3ala ra’ey ilmasal, “God works in mysterious ways” πŸ˜€

CradlePoint brought out a portable router that let you turn your 3G Network mobile into a wi-fi router, Just Connect your 3G mobile or USB modem to the PHS300 and you can share the connection with any Wi-Fi device. As well as the Li-Ion battery, you can run it off the mains, both of which give you enough juice for a USB modem.

My brother and his wife are here for the weekend. I went out with them and we had dinner in Segreto, an italian restaurant in souk madinat jumeirah. the food was great! the service was nice but they were slow with the courses. they had to offer free “courtesy of the Chef” samples just to keep us from eating their heads off.

today my brother called me and told that he forgot his credit card in the restaurant! and the state of emergency began! I called the the restaurant many times and they assured me that they haven’t received any lost credit card. I even talked to our waiter and he too said that he’s sure there were no credit cards in the lost and found and that we took the card for sure.

the calls were non stop between me, my brother and the restaurant.. but when my brother called me the last time, he started talking about how he never really put the card back in his wallet after paying.. and that he called the NBK and deactivated the card…. I was tracing back my thoughts as he was talking and thinking about the things we were doing while he was signing the bill..

i remember looking at his signature.. I was standing… we were ready to go.. but he was looking at the bill… i was looking at the credit card….. I picked up the card… the card is in my hands… i slipped the card in my pocket….

. . . YALALHAAWL!!!

Instinctively I rammed my hand in the pocket.. and there it was.. the card was in my pocket the whole time!

canon-logo.jpg

I finally bought it!!! πŸ˜€

Its not what I originally wanted.. not the D40x (which apparently a little less featured than its competitor’s the Canon EOS 400D, A.K.A. Rebel xti).

I went to Jacky’s the electronic store in Emirates mall yesterday. its the official agent for Nikon’s cameras. I went there and annoyed the hell out of the sales person, I asked about everything, the warranty, the features, the free gifts πŸ˜‰ and spent 20 minutes just bargaining with him and trying my best to lower the price. he won ofcourse…

Earlier I talked to Mishary and his brother about which camera should I go with, coz seriously I was torn and couldn’t make up my mind. Mishary was very straight forward “the canon has more features? go with it!”, INM on the other hand was like “you’ve spent months just researching the Nikon and trying it in stores, so you should go with it.. you obviously want it more”.

later when I bought it Mishary said “congratulations”, while INM said “WHY!!! I wanted you to buy the Nikon so I could buy the Canon!!”. . . . thanks a lot INM for the precious advice… NOT! πŸ˜›

ultimately my thanks goes to Ahmad for his educated advice (even though he admitted his bias toward Canon himself) but I think I made the right choice πŸ™‚

Here are the unpacking process

I played with it for hours. my first thoughts were “what have i gotten myself into!” but after the first hour I got used to it.. I still think there is a very LONG way for me and so many things to learn about my first DSLR! but I’m happy that I can finally begin the real learning process. πŸ˜€

Ellen was interviewing Jenna Bush, the president’s daughter. She asked her if she can call her parents at any time and Jenna said that she can. Ellen then put her on the spot by handing her the phone and asked her call her “parents”! Jenna was worried about getting in trouble.. President Bush took it very well.

There is a rumor that Virgin Megastore is going to open two more branches in Kuwait, one in the Avenues Mall and one in the new (under construction) 360 Mall.

it is said that the Avenues branch is going to be the largest Virgin store in the middle east! and the 360’s is going to be the second largest. As of now nothing is confirmed, its still just a rumor at this point.

I like simple games ! The object of this simple game is to click on the light colored dots to create a barrier that prevents the kitty from getting away. Each time you click on a dot, the kitty gets to move from one dot to another. (Walla u will get addicted to it!) i finished the first level ONLY πŸ™‚
