I love Vrods. I really do. Never been a bike lover before i saw the vrod from Harley Davidson. What a bike. Harley lovers hate it. They call it a honda with an HD branding. But now the question is to buy a bike or a car.

The Canon 5D is Real

Turns out that the 5D is real. This morning Canon officially announced that the world’s lightest and smallest full-frame digital SLR (the full-frame thing is a very big deal for anyone who is serious about digital photography), the new 12.8 megapixel Canon 5D. Should retail for under $3,300 when it hits stores later this year. With the X360 and the 5D, there goes November's salary. Nibaq I think will soon follow the train. Here is the link

Went for dinner at peppes after work tonight. it was nice and had lots of Windows (my kinda place). The food was also nice and their promotion runs as get a large when you order a medium. The place was spacious enough, good smell, good reception, good prices, good seating and good food. The price was medium and I would go there again.
PS: they have a parking spot for like 500 cars. That is such a rare thing in kuwait.

Going to the sea and spending a full day away from land, made me realize onething which was totally new to me. Never even thought of it.
The temperature at Qobbar island during mid day was like close to 34 degrees and it was a cool breeze and under the tent of the boat it was easy to stay a full day without an AC and without getting annoyed. Leaving after sunset and approaching land, you can feel the heat increase like you are coming into an oven. Why don't we all move to Qobbar????

We went to Edo tonight for dinner, japo place in Al Shaab, Kuwait. The food was ok, nothing special and i felt its a bit not fresh. presentation, service and the interior was great though.
The people we went with were mostly bloggers I never met before appart from nibaq, rampampered, patch and my misundazstood. I enjoyed their company and it was nice to see people away from the keyboard for a while. The shot is of the sushi bar they have and Nibaq, ready to expose their weaknesses in supplying his demand for something out of this place.


Catch of the day

catch of the day
Originally uploaded by fadibou.
So I took off today and went with my friends fishing. What a day, it started at 8:30 where I was sick and called to cancell my trip. Things got better by 10:30 and I decided to join them and went to Fahaheel beach club or something. We left with a mild sea and went to Qobbar island and we stayed around it. I was too sick to start fishing and everyone was catching fish except me, lying on the deck and enjoying the sun and the sleepy mood I was in. After lunch I got myself ready to fish and took corner and started throwing the line. I verbally threw my line like 50 times without even a fish hissing near me. Everyone started to make fun of my fishing and they were saying that I am like the owner of a restuarent, feeding the fish for free so they can come again. At 4:00 i decided to try something new. I mixed the squid and shrimp baits to make it kabab style bait. And there you go, my customers turned out to like Kababji style baits. I started by fishing the biggest She3ry of the day. Then some cat fish and 1 hour later, something big hooked in my line that almost cut my fingers. It was too tough, 5 minutes of wrestling at the depth of 50 feet and it snapped the line from the hook, everyone said its a big barracuda as it cut the line from the hook with its teeth. Three more cat fish and another big catsh, I spent another 5 to minutes to get it out but again it cut the line, I started feeling bad then . We moved to a new spot and another big pull and I started to take it out. It was too tough for me to handle and my friend who is a kuwaiti and used to those fish too the line and started playing along with the fish till we got it out. and there you go, catch of the day, a Dil3a, thats what they told me the name is and its 15 lovely pounds ready for my lunch tomorrow :)

My 7th mobile this year and I am full of hope this time I will not change this one for a while. It's got all that I need. Organizer, Calender, a lot of contacts. The winning points are:
- It's fast and small.
- It's got a 2MP Camera
- It's an mp3 player
- It's a radio
- It's easy to use.
and It's miiiiiiiine.
bye bye Nokia and as an advice, please make those menus faster, they are bloody damn slow.

What a day, been to The Palms and had a shy tan with the misses, rampurple was there and then back home, dinner, a lot of sushi, and then watched a movie.
First I wanna say, (((((The Island))))) is the best movie you can hope to watch this summer, at least for my taste, its the best ever. The acting was good, the cast was also good, The Director and the story were a massive hit.
IN BRIEF, GO WATCH THE MOVIE:
I BET YOU WILL LOVE IT.
ah the story is of the boat at Radisson SAS Kuwait from a view from The Palms

Well I was supposed to be in Dubai taking photos like this, but instead I am back to Kuwait. Had problems with my resident visa of the UAE and I was denied access to Dubai and it needs 10 days to sort this issue, so I slept overnight in the airport and got the first plane back to Kuwait in the morning.
What a vacation!!!!
More Bad luck, my car broke down and the 24 hour assistance from KFH, don't work in the weekend. Ammazing. Its called "24/7 - weekend"
Regards and good luck to all of you, I don't seem to have it those days.

Had a farewell tonight for a colleague, Mohammad Helmy, leaving us to Canada. We had it at Villa Fayrouz, the famous Lebanese restaurent in al Shaab area in kuwait. It was great food as usuall, I smell like an ashtray after it as usual. I hate cigarettes. I love the low light inside this place but it needs a tripod to capture the real magic of those lanterns. Hellraiser was there with his camera, the mediocre Olympus, and I have nasty expectations about his blog for tonight.

For anyone who has been to Salhiya Complex in Kuwait, you will notice that the bottom of the balconies is a chess board. Its very similar to the Escher Paintings like the relativity. A lounge on top and a chess board on the bottom. I don't know if it was intentional by the architect. But still its great.
