I went to Nino today, I ordered the fondoto* (which is a starter only available at their gulf road branch, that consist of spinanch, prawns, mushrooms, and fondoto sauce (cream sauce) gratinated and topped with parmesan cheese.) and then their angus certified steak for the main course. I told the waiter twice that I want a medium steak, not a well-done, not a medium-well, but a medium! twice! He brought it over to our table, it looked weird and flat, as in hammered flat (It looked, felt and tasted like a big round burger). I cut it and it was a well done. I called the waiter and complained, he couldn’t believe it coz he said he made sure to tell the chef himself. I said no problem, just replace the steak and this time I want a medium. He goes with my dish, returns 5 minutes later with another well done.
Now I got upset, I called the manager and he came over all nice and smiley and I said I’ve got one question and I need a one word answer. just one word, either yes or no. Does this look like a medium steak to you? He wanted to talk so I interrupted him “Either yes or no.” He then take a closer look and said No this is a medium well.
I asked him to take it off the bill coz I refuse to pay for something I did not order and he did. He was very apologetic too, which is good, made me less upset. But then he called the chef over. The chef came over and he was trembling. I don’t know what happened back in the kitchen for him to come out shaking like that (even my friend noticed. It was weird), and I asked him the same question, is it a medium steak *pointing at the steak* and he said Yes this is a medium steak. So I said ok I have nothing else to say to you, if we couldn’t agree on something this obvious, then there is not point in arguing. But that didn’t stop him. He kept telling me that this is how “their medium looks like” and then branched out to explain about their streaks and (read this carefully) how they Hammer the steaks, yes they hammer them just like a scallop, to make them look larger, and that is why it looks like this. After arguing a bit over how they’re not supposed to hammer a steak, and him not caring for what I had to say, I gave up. Now that I’m thinking about it, I don’t know what hammering the steak got to do with it being overcooked, but at that point I was just nodding him off.

I’ve been attending diving classes for the past 3 days at Bubbles diving center. I don’t know how my friend bo9ale7 convinced me to join, I’m not the sportish type; I never really think of ‘activity’ when considering an outing… coz well, let’s just say I’m more of a restaurants person 😛 But I wouldn’t have thought that I’d enjoy diving this much!
The diving lessons started on Monday and will be ending on Saturday. Over the last 2 days we were studying the basics of diving with Captain Abdulrahman AlSarheed over at Bubbles diving center. The classes were very informative, and have done a nice job preparing us for the real thing.
Today, the 3rd day into the course, we got to practice what we were taught. We went to a huge swimming pool in Al Araby club in AlMansouriya. The experience was magical. Going in with all those diving gears and breathing under water was one of the most special things I’ve done, ever.
I’m too tired to keep writing after the dip in the pool, but rest assured a full review of the experience and Bubbles diving center will be published once I get my Beginners License.

I don’t know if this ever happened to you, but yesterday I was heading to the Avenues for lunch and just 3 minutes before reaching the mall I looked at what I was wearing and discovered that I was wearing my house slippers instead of a real decent ones! It was hilarious discovering that. I was about to turn back home but thankfully my friends were there ahead of me, so they bought me a pair of Crocs and brought them down to me in the parking lot..
Just got this video by email from my wife, This is supposed to be showen next Ramadan inshallah which i think is another one of those hidden camera/Sadaouh type of shows. Checkout how Mohamad Sayrafi is fabricating every thing and how the whole thins isn’t real at all!
Alshaya got a franchising agreement to get the American eagle to the Middle east:
“The company, headquartered in Kuwait, plans to open a series of AE stores throughout the Middle East in the next several years, CEO Jim O’Donnell told investors in a conference call. American Eagle won’t have to invest any capital and will have minimal involvement in operations, he said, but the deal could generate “significant” returns. ” – SOURCE
“Alshaya will open a series of American Eagle Outfitters stores throughout the Middle East over the next several years. The first store is slated to open in early 2010.” – SOURCE
Since the last month i was in a blue amber mode, so i was busy contacting some sellers for making blue amber misbah, I even bought 2 rocks of blue amber to get it done here in Kuwait, at that time my wife was watching me quitly until i decided to get into the second step which was buying a new misbah from one of my online friends, which was kind of very pricey. At that point specifically before transfering the amount of money to my friend, my wife saddenly says WAIT! dont buy it… i said to her why? she said open the drawer and look there.
We went to Garoh island last weekend, it was my first time to go to Garoh, and let me tell you how would you feel if you ever went there:
1-On the way there and just before you get to the island, the sea will smell like you’re at a gas station. The sea reeks of gazoline. Big circles of transparent oils are floating everywhere. And just so you know, thats why it was called Garoh. Garoh is a word derived from Gar, which somehow meant Oil/Petrol long time ago. Read the rest of this entry »

“I can officially say I’m a Real Madrid player. My professional link with AC Milan finishes now, but my sentimental link will never end,” he said.
“Real Madrid intend to build a great team, with historic players such as Raul and Casillas. We will make history again, both in Spain and Europe. I guess the sport project is very good.
“Now another chance came up and AC Milan is in a big crisis (financially). For me, the sporting project (at Madrid) is interesting and will be an important boost to continue my career in the highest level.”
“Kaka could now become the first of a new wave of ‘Galáctico’ signings, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, David Villa and Franck Ribery all linked to the Spanish giants since Perez’s unopposed re-election as the club’s president last week.”
