Tour in Oman..

Wednesday, December 15, 2010 5
Due to your comments that I have taken into consideration and I have studied the appreciated feedback and after much thought, money and power that I have invested in this tour, I decided to share with you where Karamilah been taken by ME when she was here.. (the visit is not in order, cant remember the order)

Express Highway
While we were at the express highway, we saw a side road filled with palm trees and decorative lights so we said why not follow the road and see where it leads.. We ended up in front of guards with gun, and when we asked were told that it is “ma6iqa 3askariya”.. Why on earth would you have a militarily place decorated so nicely like that??

Al Bustan Place Hotel
Karamilah requested to see this hotel as she heard about it but never saw it, so we went in to tour and they refused and said everything is off limit and it’s for the hotel guests only so we used their toilet and left to our next destination! (7 star hotel toilets rocks =p)

Souq Mattrah
A traditional market in Muscat where they sell old stuff plus weird stuff.. this was the 3rd time I go there hehehe.. 1st time went to stitch an abbaya, second time, went to take it and 3rd time played a tour guide to people loool…

Cornish
This along side Mattrah were you sea the ports and the yachts and the lights and the sea and the fish and the cars and the people and the shop and you get my drift!!


Marina Bandar Al Rawtha
Passed by it, entered the wrong turning, saw the view from the wrong turing.. Gave up and left hehe..


Qasir Al 3alam (The Sultan’s Palace)
I cant remember when was the last time I saw it which means it was a very long time ago, I wont be surprised if it was over 15 years ago.. So this was the educational bit for me where I saw the palace, saw how the place changed.. The lights the road and how its crowded with people.. Reminded me of Buckingham palace in London.. The only thing we didn’t have pigeons hehe..


Bawabat Muscat (Muscat’s Door)
A very interesting thing to stop and see.. Now here I really got educated and learned shwaya of the history of my country.. I know the original door was replaced but I have never been to it and saw it up front.. We also discovered that there is a museum that I have never knew existed.. Quite educational.. We didn’t enter the museum coz its was at night but definitely its on my list of things to go and see..

Mashakeek
To end the semi half day tour, we went to Athiba beach and ordered mashakeek (meat on stick cooked bbq style) and had it in the car and that concluded our amazing tour =D



Some private/public replies =p

Swear: Since you are my dear amazing Kuwaiti fake blogger friend, I would gladly make for you a fake tour, where you have to come and transit in Oman airport, I’ll meet you there, take you to the nearest coffee shop available in the airport, fake my smile and genuinety, show you pictures of the places that I will so fakley take you to.. And then take you back to the plane =D how do you like my super fake amazing plan? (plz ignore my creative words that doesn’t exist in the dictionary =p)

Mean B: laish inshallah are you disappointed in me?

Bint ilKuwait: I loved the way you came up with the story of my life and now I owe you a tour here in Oman =)

Reema: Was that detailed enough =p

Eshda3wa: 7ayaaash wallllah.. you have to come here =D


The thing about Oman, is that its too big and you cant see it all in one day and everything is all over the place.. So you need at least a week so you can cover the places that is a MUST to see =)

I like the idea of preparing a tour for my jealous blogger friends loool as quoted from Reema.. So I asked Mery (the driver and the guide who is my bestfrined) and she goes like “I will agree on if it is 10Rials per hour” =S .. Speak about having expensive friend!!!

Anywhoooooo… whoever comes to Oman and wants a tour don’t hesitate to contact me and I shall try my best to make it worth your while and maybe quit my job and become a tour guide or wazirat wizarat el siya7a fi 3oman =D

A Visit From UAE

Monday, December 6, 2010 7
Last Wednesday I get a call from my dear blogger friend karamilah who tells me that she is coming to Oman on Thursday.. It was a very refreshing call and I knew I would have a extraordinarily weekend and indeed it was..

Couldn’t meet her on Thursday coz I had a wedding to attend and she was busy sightseeing with her family.. Nevertheless she fell in love with my country =)

I met her and her sister on Friday and we had a blast, we laughed we toured. I asked my best friend Mery to be our guide and she did an amazing job in giving us a tour.. One thing I learned is that I am not utilizing what I have in hand. Oman has lots of places and yet I have no idea about., This tour/trip was an eye opener, it was a tour for me too.. I learned stuff and as an Omani I should have KNOWN them loool..

Karamilah, thank you for visiting Oman and being the amazing person that you are.. I had a blast and I really cant wait for you to come again.. This time, it will be fully planned and more of a party than a trip..

Say hi to your sis for me and tell her thank you for making me talk Arabic ;)

Attention Bloggers..


The link to my dearest blogger/friend has changed due to the corrupted net corporation where they just decided to deny her the right to her exclusive website name which mind you she's been using for the past 2 years..



Her previous link was

Her current link is

Please update your readers and blogrolls accordingly =D

5 Days later!!

Saturday, November 20, 2010 6
Exactly 5 days was the off of Eid.. Monday to Friday.. It was VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY yes I am stressing on VERY to show you how VERY SHORT it was.. Honestly, it wasn’t enough.. And today is SATURDAY!! But when is enough really enough?? Nothing seems to be enough to anyone anyways lool..

So Eid was hmm.. Not bad I can say but not very organized from my side. This is the first Eid I have spent here since I got married.. So you understand how different it is.. Last Eid I flied my way out of Oman and went to Zanzibar.. Hmm speaking of Zanzibar, I need to post some pics.. hehe.. Will do that later!

So first day Eid, left home by 9am got back home at 5pm and visited only 5 houses!! It was a VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY yes stressing on how it was a VERY LONG day!! At night I didn’t want to see the sight of outside so I camped inside =p

Second day we ignored everyone and everything, me hubby decided to make it our day and we went out for lunch, then to the movies, then visited my and his parents then it was home sweet home…

Third day, it was “sheewa day” hehe.. Having the meat that was cooked underground at his parents place, so that was nice and we also managed to squeeze another 4 houses to greet on this day..

And surprise surprise the last day was Yesterday, I decided to do NOTHING at all.. So I just cooked and watching my series and a movie!



The things that made me happy in these past 5 days are:

1.My brother is here for end of the semester break, so that was exciting for me, as he’s abroad studying. I already told him to come and play PS3 with me hehehe..

2.My husband managed to pamper me to the max which was a very relaxing and much needed thing.

3.Had a great talk with My Doctor and all I can say is that my spirit is “rejuvenated” LOL =p

4.Watching a movie with Swera on yesterday. Although the movie sucked BIG TIME, it was fun watching it with her and we made it interesting. Thank you Sewra for an amazing “movie date” ;)

The movie was called “Harsh Times” it was more like “Wasting Our Times”.. I am not recommending it to ANYONE! Seriously, the movie had no story or moral to teach you..



Standy, Over and Out!

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious..

Saturday, November 13, 2010 3
"A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down.. The medicine go down.. The medicine go down.. A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down.. "

I woke up today with this song in mind.. Its from “Mary Poppins” one of my favourite childhood movie.. I never got tired watching it..

Since I got married and I cant seem to stick to a plan.. Nothing works and things keeps on changing.. I miss my routine days.. The times that I manage to get home by 4:30-5pm is a blessing otherwise I know I am not back before 6 or 7 which sucks!! As it is I wake up 5:30am!!

Weekends are not so great either these days.. IF I am not invited for a wedding or a gathering or a lunch or something, I have to be a Cinderella and start cleaning the house and cooking and its not so great.. I don’t mind cooking, I enjoy it, it’s the cleaning that I hate.. Its takes too much time!!! By the time i finish its already end of the day and i feel like it was a working day and then friday comes and BAAAAAM is saturay again =s

Work, I feel like sleeping when I am at work.. not from the lack of work, just because I feel exhausted and tired.. I can’t say I enjoy my work but I manage =)

I am currently reading a book called “getting things done” by David Allen.. Its very interesting and so far it pointed out so many things that I used to do wrong. Hopefully this will make me more efficient and organize in my life..

One thing I am happy about is that I am semi back to doing sports. I joined the basketball girls and sometimes we play football so its all good.. Trying to diet but hehe aint working so I try to eat less and maybe balance my food..

Today is Saturday but somehow I don’t mind it coz tomorrow is the last day working lool..

Its almost end of the year.. Cant believe how this year passed so fast..

Have a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Day =)

Mc Evil Confused as usual!!!

Wednesday, November 3, 2010 6
My Friends never fail to make a boring meeting or conversation very interesting.. The things they do, or happen to them speaks volumes of hilarious..

Examples:
http://stand-alone7.blogspot.com/2009/05/funny-conversation.html

http://stand-alone7.blogspot.com/2009/05/funny-convo.html

http://stand-alone7.blogspot.com/2009/11/story-of-month.html

Here yet again, i am going to share with you a story.. My dear lovely confused friend "Mc Evil" always and forever puts herself in situations!!


Mc Evil is suppose to pick up her cousins from dubai airport..
(Please Note, that she has NEVER met these cousins and she only knows a name of one of them which is "Ifrah" and all she knows, is that she is looking for someone who looks like her.. 2 girls and a boy)

*pause*
looks like her coz she was told, plus her whole family kinda looks alike.. once in a wedding i almost went to great a girl thinking it was Mc Evil lool!!
*un-pause*


As she is waiting in the airport, people started getting out of the gate, so she starts to scan the area with her fake eyes (she is wearing contacts!!) and then she zooms on 2 girls coming out of the gate..

Conversation with her mind
Mc Evil: is that them?
Her mind: the boy is missing
Mc Evil: but its 2 girls coming
Her mind: the boy is missing
Mc Evil: shall I talk to them
Her mind: the boy is missing
Mc Evil: Oh what the hell
Her mind: THE BOY IS MISSING!!!!


Mc Evil despite the voice of reason, she goes and approaches the girls and....

*pause*
let me first explain to you a little about Mc Evil.. Plain and simple she is a LOUD person and says 100 words in 10 seconds.. She is the type that would great you like you were her long lost friend and when you leave she'll ask "who the hell was that"????
So imagine what happened when she approached the poor poor poor girls...

*un-pause*


Mc Evil: HHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII How are you *extending her hands to greet them* I am Mc Evil, what is your name?
Girl No.1: lookin at her weirdly, hi, I am Sarah
Mc Evil in her head *hmm, that aint my cousins name* Turns to girl No. 2 : what about you?
Girl No.2: uh, Marwa
Mc Evil: looks at them blankly…
Then starts giggling like a 5 year old girl *note she is 28 years old*
Mc Evil: Oh sorry, I thought you were my cousins that I have NEVER met…
(we can make a movie out of this =p)
Mc Evil:Anyways HAVE A NICE DAY *runs the other side*

Now goes back to scan the area with her fake eyes searching for 2 girls and a boy.. She saw 2 girls and a boy looking lost and then she.... Yes yes she approached them i mean really, didnt she learn anything?? but why was she so sure, coz the girl Looked like her.. (the one advantage of marrying within the family = NO confusion)

She looks girls with her evil eyes terrorising them: What is your name?
The girl said : Ifrah
And then they hug and live happily ever after!!!!

THE END!
=p

TINY Kitchen and the HUGE spider

Saturday, October 30, 2010 4
So I was chatting to my American sister Tiny Kitchen and she got all excited and was like “DID I TELL YOU ABOUT MY SPIDER INCIDENT” lool.. Too excited that her words almost popped out of my blackberry lool..

So the story goes something like this:
Tiny Kitchen was all alone at night, watching TV and eating popcorn (as you all know its that time of the year as in HALLOWEEN) poor little HUGE spidy was feeingl all bored and lonely in the bathroom window gazing at the stars feeling left out coz spido (his wife) decided to have a ladies night out..

Bored with the scene already, spidy decided to walk on the bathroom floor and cruise around abit and that is when TINY KITCHEN decided to use the bathroom..

*EE EE EE EE * --> horror movie theme music, you know like a squeaky door or when someone is holding a knife coming right at you loool..

Moving on!

So as she entered the bathroom, spidy got excited coz now he can have some fun.. so as soon as Tiny entered the bathroom spidy jumped on her with his fangs aiming at her shoulder, luckily Tiny saw that attack coming and in a quick defence mode she held him by his 3rd feet from the left side and threw him out the window where unfortunately he was squished by a car the moment he landed on the road!! Tiny managed to saved her self from being the meal of the night to spidy and she was astonished by her bravery.. PRAVA.. I have never been more proud of you sister =)

The only down side of the story is that, when spido came back home and she didn’t find spidy she assumed that he left her for speda (a Spanish cute little spider that lives across the country) and sometimes at night, Tiny swears that she could hear someone singing (all by myself) in her apartment..

THE END!!!


And now, here is the FICTION version of the story written by my sister on what “ACTUALLY” happened that day *rolling my eyes* =p


Ok, so the story is pretty boring in retrospect, but i was obsessed with this literally ALL day yesterday.

so this story requires a little background. for whatever reason my bathroom is an advanced eco-system of cellar spiders and rolly-pollys, plus some other assorted smaller insects and spiders. Occasionally when it's raining out or really hot/humid, a cockroach will wander in. now the most common roach in DC is a palmetto bug, which is pretty dark and beetle like.
Anyway, i wander into my bathroom yesterday morning, still somewhat asleep. i turn my sink on to wash my face and notice what looks like a roach on the floor near my toilet. since i had just woken up, my eyes weren't totally focused yet, so i look over to attempt to squash it when i notice that it is no roach at all but rather a huge dark disgusting spider. the spider then kind of casually crawled under my toilet. UNDER MY TOILET.

now, i'm happy to admit that spiders are not my most favourite of things, though i try really hard to leave them alone since i know they eat stuff that i don't like (hence the huge population of cellar spiders in my apartment). But this.. This was no cellar spider. This (to my barely awake eyes) was a gigantic monstrosity of a spider, almost a grotesque mutant spider. i was so freaked out that i took the fastest shower of my life and got out there. Because i didn't know what to do but felt compelled to do something, i went upstairs and got a glue trap to use in an attempt to catch said spider monster and then left for work.

The whole day i obsessed over what i had seen and spent a disproportionate amount of time researching what it could have possibly been. i told myself i just wanted to make sure it wasn't poisonous, but really, i was just consumed by the sight. Anyway, i figured it had to be a parson spider. which are horrible and ugly looking, and though they bite, they're not deadly. i tried all day to convince myself that was ok and i was a mature enough adult to handle sharing my space with some benign hunting spider. (By the way, i'm totally not mature enough to do that)

so, i got home later that evening and obviously the first thing i did was check my trap. i assumed it would be empty because these spiders are nocturnal. BUT I WAS WRONG. there was something on the trap. Something disgusting. it was a quarter sized reddish spider, stuck to the trap. oh, and guess what? it's fangs were stuck to the trap too. They were huge. HUGE AND DISGUSTING. Anyway, i obviously took photos and covered it with a glass because i didn't want it to escape but i was also too scared to kill it.

After another round of obsessing, i learned that the spider i caught was a sac spider rather than a parson spider. Both are gross. i'm still not totally convinced that the one i caught was the same one i saw in the morning, but whatever. Eventually i smashed the spider and went to bed. Though the spider was dead, i still fell asleep with unsettling feeling of being covered in crawly things.

THE END!!

Jargon much?

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 11
They always say when are using technology, especially in chatting, you should keep up with its shortcuts and famous words.. For example, if I say LOL” you know I mean “Lots of Laugh” or Laughs Out Loud” However you interpret that its ok, coz it still refers to what I mean..

Now when I say something like GM (Good Morning) and you go saying (General Manager) you should know that you are too invested in your work and your brains cells are beyond damaged..

Now let me give you LIVE examples of people who are with me in my BBM list..

A Med Student
It was after 12pm and this is what the conversation went:
Standy: GA ( I was in a hurry, so I didn’t fully write GOOD AFTERNOON)
Med Student:?????
Med Student: General Anaesthesia?
Standy: 0.o


A Marketer
Her DISPLAY PICTURE was changing like every 5 seconds so I go like:
Standy: what is up with you dp?
Marketer: ?????
Marketer: Distribution Point?
Standy: o.O


A Banker
She stole a picture from Mean B and made it as her DISPLAY PICTURE:
Standy: lool @ ur dp
Banker: dp ???
Banker: Diposal?
Standy: 0.0



Now back to the med student, I had to test this DP thing.
Standy: whats up with your dp?
Med Student: shfeeha?
Standy: do you know what dp means?
Med Student: display pic? (shaka, she ain't sure ya3ni)
Standy: Are you sure its not a medical thing?
Med Student: Dopamine?
Standy: x.x


You guys need a break!!

Expensive Friends..

Wednesday, September 29, 2010 7
Is there such a thing as an expensive friend?

I was chatting with my friend HTMCF (Hamda The Mini Cooper Freak) and i was telling her that I am sending her something..

Me: I am sending you something bas I am sorry that money value isn’t much put on the gift..
HTMCF: Money value never made a gift special, the value of the thought is what makes a gift special (yeah sometimes she can be such an wise guru)
Me: aww, now I know why you are my friend, but I want a 1000 Rials and expensive gifts..
HTMCF: hahahaha don’t be such an expensive friend!!


LOL!! EXPENSIVE FRIEND... but then it got me thinking and I came up with definition for an expensive friend..

An Expensive Friend is a friend who drains you out financially, doesn’t accept low budget gifts, doesn’t like to go to cheap restaurants and always brags about what they have and how much they got it for.. They are the people who suck you dry and leave you cold!!!

Can these people be nice people? I mean can they be good friends? Do you consider them good hearted friends??

I categorized expensive friends into 2 type;

The Show Off
These are the people who have it, know it, and shove it in your face!! I don’t think they make good friends as they are so fake and superficial..

The Sorta Genuine
These are the people, who have it, know it, but try to hide it and are sweet and considerate but sometimes el 3irq ye6la3 and you get an expensive brag from them.. They do make modest friends though..


Then you have the poor friends like me.. I want a thousand rials and I cant seem to get it.. Do you think if I made friends with expensive friends they will consider me as a charity case and give me 1000 Rials?


I NEED EXPENSIVE FRIENDS to use and abuse looool.. I don’t need expensive friends to use me.. As it is my poor friends are doing that job already!!

Anyone interested to take me as a charity case and adopt me as their expensive friend and pamper me like there is no tomorrow?

SATURDAY

The Plan: Executed

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 9

I will start by saying I am proud of myself for executing my plan which was to exercise in Ramadan and eat healthy and all that..

18 days into Ramadan and I finally did it =D
I exercised =D

But 3ad when I came back home I was broken, tired and exhausted but my sweet sweet adorable amazing lovely husband gave me a surprise massage =D

I walked into the room and he had candles lit beside my bed and he was like “this way please” lool.. Isn’t my 7amani CCCUUUUTEEEE.. Me love him :*

It was something like this =D

So I got the best massage EVER!!

The next day Ramadan 19, I went again.. This time it wasn’t pretty at all!! And after that I retired and I exterminated my plan coz there is no point.. Plus I discovered its not healthy to workout..

Let me tell you WHY its not healthy to workout!! Your back, leg, hands and hair hurts and you get muscle pain for days and you also start craving for sweets and chocolate!! Before I started working out, I didn’t want to eat anything!!

On the plus side, I somehow managed to loose weight, not sure how that happened but I am happy =D

How is your workout plan working out for you???

He Looks Like My Boss!!!

Monday, August 16, 2010 17
Sitting in a meeting today bored and feeling sleepy, my boss was sitting next to me and when he talks i cant help but look at him and pretend that i am interested in what is going on with the work that we need to do lool.. While looking at him, i was saying to myself that he looks very familiar then it hit me!! MY BOSS LOOKS LIKE THIS GUY!!


For those who don’t know him.. His name is Michael Emerson and he plays a character called "Ben Linus" in the series "Lost"..

I would have uploaded the picture of my boss but that wouldn’t be ethical now would it ;)

Monday, August 9, 2010

The Plan

Monday, August 9, 2010 9
The more I wash my clothes the more they shrink.. They are trying to play games on me and indicating and assuming that I am getting FAT, which is clearly NOT the case here, coz we all know that heat makes things shrink!!!

My Clothes HAS Shrunk, I am so sticking to my story!!

So here is the plan.. Oh no, my clothes aren’t gonna win.. They want to trick my but the joke is on them.. Oh Yeah.. I won’t replace them; i won’t give them the satisfaction of seeing new things in the closet!!

Back to the plan..
Since Ramadan is only few days away, it’s the perfect time to loose I mean to START.. Yes START having a healthier life style.. Less junk food and healthier home made food… Start engaging in any type of available sport.. Since football is over, i think I will join the basketball team if they will be having any activities, if not, I might gather the football girls and just do our own training or anything.. Or simply find a partner who will go jogging with me =)

The plan sounds simple and nice =D
Now executing it and implementing it is where I need a kick start!!

To all my clothes that have shrunk, I say BRING IT ON!!!

And soon, I will be telling you IN YOUR FACE!!!!


Ramadan Mubarak everyone,, yen3ad 3alekum bialf 9i7a o salama.. Taqabal Allah 9iyamakum..

Monday, August 2, 2010

This is it!!!

Monday, August 2, 2010 12
When I first got introduced to you I was so happy… Actually beyond happy…I remember when people were telling me about you.. I was hesitant on the idea of you.. The way that you are, the things that you can do.. It was all too good to be true.. Little did I know that my life with you would be happiness and torture in the end..

The first few days I was the happiest person on earth.. You were glued to me 24/7 and I LOVED IT!! Would tell anyone and everyone about you.. The most important thing is that I felt so pretty and easy when you were with me..

The only time we’d be apart is when I go to bed..

Now, I really cant wait to get rid of you.. Nowadays you are requiring too much attention.. You are not as good as you were.. I have to keep you up to date or I suffer by a headache or I cant work.. Its just not easy.. I’ve complained A LOT about you, and everyone knows your story… I think its time.. 10 years is a life time. This relationship between me and you must end..

There is a way to get rid of you once and for all.. Not sure when I will be able to do it but I have to.. I’ve reached a point where I NEED YOU OUT OF MY LIFE..

Now it all comes to the 1000 Rials..

Once I get the 1000 Rials it’s gonna be the time I kill you..
And that day will go into history as
“The Day That Standy Got Rid of Her Lenses”

A Note From Mc Evil

Wednesday, July 28, 2010 6
This is a note that was sent to me by my dear friend Mc Evil and i would like to share it with you guys..



Confessions of an overweight girl!
My beloved sisters!
I thought I should share!

We all have struggles with weight and once you lose it is hard to keep it off I don't know why!!!!! But I found out its all related to stress! If you are stressed out or uncomfortable (mostly with work) you need to start having ways to relax yourself and step away from the everyday stress ...... This sounds like a book right!! looool..... But trust me it is working for me and InshAllah it will work for you!

Don't stop eating!!!! our bodies are like machines we need fuel......... (just not chocolate lol) don't' miss meals, have whatever you want but don't miss a meal and have a snack between meals to (lessen cravings) preferable fruits or nuts whatever u like (not chocolate n fired foods) forget them its poisons!

Okay basically this isn't for everyone, but do 4 days a week just body bump and afterwards 20mins on the cross trainer or treadmill ( your metabolism will kick start and burn fat 24hrs). The rest of the days only do yoga or Pilates or anything to do with stretching and relaxing or even a brisk walk. I promise you will see your body transforming into a sexy kitten. Start with the light weights and work your way up!!! Your body will hurt for a week or more its fine it just means your body is actually using its muscles.

Okay what is the benefit, while I am sure you all know if you work with weights your metabolism starts working faster and burns fat for 24hrs.

I am sure you are all in my stage sick of feeling sorry for yourself because of weight! Well its time we start and start together!!!

One more tip DO NOT I repeat DO NOT WEIGHT yourself anymore!!!! As you might gain muscle and lose fat!! And Muscle weights more just keep checking your outfits, and warning don't eat sweets unless you know you will go burn it off!!!!!!!

Its time to take action and care for our bodies!


In the end I say:
If Stress Burned Calories, I'd Be a Super Model By Now..

Have a nice weekend ya’ll =)

The Dubai Trip

Sunday, July 25, 2010 12
7amani calls me on Monday and asks me to take off from Wednesday till Saturday from work.. I was surprised, I asked why and he refused to tell me why..

On Tuesday after work, he says to me “yala pack, tomorrow we are going to Dubai.. Its your birthday gift from me =) I am taking you on a break =D

Its that SWEEET =D


Wednesday morning, I packed anything and everything lol.. Got ready and by 10:30 am we were off on the road..

I cant remember much of the road coz I was sleeping most of the time.. Cars, plains or anything that moves for a long time make me sleepy =p

So we finally reach to the hotel.. We stayed in Movenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach and it was GORGEOUS..

Here some picks of the room












We didn’t do much on this trip.. of course we got lost A LOT on the road and somehow we kept passing the same buildings over and over again no matter what turn we take.. Dubai roads and signs SUCKS! Driving there felt something like this..



The funny/weird things that I encountered in this trip are:
A Kuwait Street Sign


A Transport Company


A Funky Style Building


Friday at midnight, 7amani surprised me with a cake and a gift =D


He got me an anklet =D



3alay bil 3afiya =p

And that was the perfect ending to an AMAZING trip!

My Birthday’s Wish List

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 8
The year has passed so fast that I don’t think I managed to accomplish anything!! Yet here is another birthday coming and this time I am not greedy at all..

All I want for my birthday is a thousand rials.. So people, start collecting from others and this will be the best gift EVER =D

No..
Really?
You guys cant?
Shako??

FINE!! You want me to be MORE realistic!!!
*rolling my eyes*

FFIIIINNNEEE!!!

Ok, here is what I really want for my birthday..
A birthday card - or note with something personal written for me..


If you want to put anything extra in it, say like money or ya3ni, 3adi feel welcome =p

No really, to be honest.. All I want is a card.. The rest of the gifts, I already told who asked me what I want.. They weren’t many =)

20,000 Dollars!!!!!!

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 11
Imagine.. My company paid 20,000 Dollars to another company just for them to create an excel sheet that will convert a word documents that contain data into tables!!!

Do you get how absurd that is??

I mean seriously, TWENTY BLOODY THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR A LOUSY EXCEL SHEET.. (Yes it’s a complicated excel sheet but believe me its not worth 20,000 dollars) any may I add that the excel sheet is not even working probably and its full of bugs and it doesn’t support the measurement format that we use and now they are supposingly fixing it but they are taking like forever to do that, well I guess coz they have already been paid the money oh oh and now they say its coz our computers are not supporting some MS components and we need to upgrade it!!

Sometimes I am beyond shocked on how this company operates..

I forgot to reply “Eshda3wa” on a question that she asked me.. Who works is a port-cabin.. ME.. My office is in a port-cabin.. I mean a multibillion company and all they can afford to give us is a bloody cabin!! Its been 4 years and they say soon we will move lool.. I give it another 2 years but I am not really keen on moving to an open office.. It sucks.. its nice to be alone here.. A department that is so far away from the other departments.. if someone has a complain, they will think twice before coming to us lool..

Oh and the same or another company (not sure) want 110,000 Dollars so they can add “a code” in a software so it can match our requirements and do what we want..

20,000 equals to:
7692 Omani Rial
7532 Bahraini Dinar
5810 Kuwaiti Dinar
72820 Qatari Rial
74994 Saudi Rial
73460 Emarati Dirham
15936 Euro
13202 British Pound
936100 Indian Rupee


and all i wanted was 1000 Omani Rials!!!

Royal Standy

Sunday, June 20, 2010 7

Here by I declare that Standy has been crowned and from now on should be called “Sir Standy” lool =p

Ok ok, I am WAY over my head with this!! It’s nice to dream though =D
Plus it feels so real…


I’ve been crowned with the “Sultani Crown” by the lovely Zabo0o6a =)
Thank you your highness for the amazing crown..

Here is the deal.. I have to list down 6 secrets that no one would notice or know upon meeting me for the first time…


1. I am a very shy person.. When you first meet me, you won’t get that impression about me as you will see me all over the place, but I am a shy person =)

2. I am still obsessed with getting 1000 Omani Rails.. I mean come on! Its been almost year already.. Can someone just hand me the money?? Please *sad puppy eyes*

3. I am racist and adopted ;)
(Not true but this is what my friends and mom says about me)

4. I have cucu syndromes and at times I am very slow to understand although I am smart lol

5. Most people get shocked when they know that I know how to cook considering I am not the most feminine/girly person ever (Sexy lips, I owe you prawns and Inshallah will get it for you before your fetus is born =p)

6. I am a sucker for cartoons.. I am so childish when is comes to that, and I can watch them for hours without getting bored =)

I know they only asked for 6 but since I don’t like the No.6 and I am a fan of No.7, so I decided to add one more secret..

7. I pushed Humpty Dumpty =D



Now i have to tag 6 bloggers and I tag:

Confused..

Tuesday, June 15, 2010 10
I am so confused.. Somehow I am behind a day from the rest for the world.. I thought yesterday was the day before yesterday and today is yesterday and tomorrow is today? Lool. Confused much??

I woke up today thinking its Monday, and making Monday plans and actually counting the 2 more days till the weekend only to discover that today is TUESDAY and tomorrow is Wednesday and its one day to the weekend!

Now to make the matters worse, apparently its not only me who has cucu syndromes, somehow my phone has it to.. Not sure if it felt sorry for me or if it is actually as cucu as I am, but my phone date setting was also a day behind..

I go more confused coz my PC at work showed the date that I thought it was which is 14 but its actually 15.. Not sure if my eyes is also part of the cucu conspiracy and the master mind behind “the one day behind” scheme or is it actually following my cucu brain and allowing me to see what I want to see…

I knew I shouldn’t have stopped taking my pills!!

A Simple Gesture Goes A Long Way

Saturday, June 12, 2010 8
Its always the little things that matters.. I order to live a happy life and have good karma I realized that its always the small things that leads to a better day..

When was the last time that you said “Thank You”, “Please” or shared a “smile” with a total stranger or your maids at home?

When was the last time you called or smsed an old friend and just said “hi” without expecting a reply or wanting a favour from them?

These things might seem like nothing but in reality it is a great deal. In my office, I always greet the cleaning guy with a smile and a good morning and sometimes if I have a sweet or a chocolate on my desk I do ask him to take some.. I never knew it meant a lot till I realized that I was the almost the only one in my department who actually takes the times to actually acknowledge the existence of this cleaning guy, therefore when he cleans my desk, its always cleaned nicely, and when he sees me from a far approaching the office he’d always hold the door for me..

Now I always say “please” and “thank you” with a smile to people.. Believe me, it does make a difference, and if someone is not smiling back, you are not loosing anything and that doesn’t make you less of a person.. And i realized that it feels good.. In away it give you some sense of "i did a good deed today"..

This is just something that I was thinking about and I wanted to share it with you guys.. “Thank You”, “Please” or shared a “smile” with a total stranger or your maids at home?


On a very different note.. World cup is here.. Who are you guys supporting???
ITALY ALL THE WAY =D
(just coz the guys are HOT =p)


Finally, I am wishing Dr.Cullen, Doona and My Dumb Twin Fiath all the best in their exams and modules and all the clinicals tests.. Bil tawfeeq and Inshallah you guys will ace it all and pass with flying colours =)

And Then They Called Her A….

Tuesday, June 8, 2010 11
1 message received..
“To think that i did something really REALLY wrong somewhere in the past 3 weeks its unspeakable of.. To feel that i will be doing something else in the coming weeks, something that i might regret doing or i might not its really none of your concern”

Reem couldn’t believe what she read… Shaking her head she replies back
“I can’t believe that I once called you a friend”

Message sent.. To think of it.. This friend really had nothing to lose in life and she choose to do it and face the consequences, whatever they are.. She was always the daring and wild one at work.. She was a co-worker who worked her way up to be a good friend of hers..

Maryam laughed at the message and mocked it, she instantly replied back
“Until when should I be holding back and not experiencing life???? This was just something that I had to do.. Judge me all you want, if I could, I’d still choose to do it all over again!!!”

Stunned by the stinging words of once upon a time my friend, Reem threw her phone on the wall..

Sighed..
Irritated..
Indescribable anger hitting her hard..

A year ago she was happy.. She had just started a new life.. She got married to this wonderful man..

2 days ago..
She discovered that he married her friend and she was invited to the wedding..

Ignorant enough she didn’t bother to know who Maryam was getting married to..

Ignorant enough to trust her husband when he said I am off to another country for a business meeting..

Ignorant enough to not see the signs that were laying infront of her eyes begging to be noticed..

Ignorant enough to be so caught up in life..


And then they announce the groom is coming in.. Only to see her husband waking directly to her friend flabbergast with lose of;
Voice
Words
Strength

Feeling she was in a bad dream.. Suddenly she was fighting for what is hers and cursing the groom and bride.. Only to be held and let out side the hall..

And then they called her a…

BITCH

1. For ruining the wedding
2. For not understanding
3. For being too close minded
4. For not being able to keep what was hers
5. For ruining her life with her own hands
6. For introducing her friend to her husband
7. For having trust in both of them


Most of all..

They called her a BITCH, for defending what was hers….

p.s Due to all the phone calls and messages i've been getting, i would like to say that this story is PURELY FICTION!!!
p.p.s This is a short story and there will not be any other additional chapters!!

Saturday AGAIN?

Saturday, April 3, 2010 7
WHY WHY WHY WHY????? Laish ya3ni Saturday has to come and ruin my weekend mood??? WHY??? I demand an answer..

You know, I think they should change Saturday and call is “Happy Day” at least we start our day with
1) A nice name
2) A lifted spirit


Or you know better yet,, just cancel Saturday from the weekdays yekoon a7san.. No need for Saturday.. Ba3deen what kind of a name is “Saturday” blaah.. Such a depressing day with a horrible name..

I don’t think I will ever get over my hate for Saturdays..

Saturdays sucks!!!

And my fingers are freezing… All the A/Cs in the office are set on 16 degrees and I am feeling so cold and no one cares and I BLOODY HATE SATURDAYS!!!

If Saturday was a man enough he would just disappear from my life,, BUT NOOOO Lazim 3inad.. Each bloody week it has to show its face to me..

*sobs* I hate Saturdays..

I *heart* My American Sister =D

Sunday, March 28, 2010 7
Dear Emily..

You have no idea how happy I was when my brother called me telling me that i have a package from the US.. I was over the moon flying =D my hubby was like what are you so happy? I told him my American sister sent me something.. A wedding gift =D.. Of course he was confused till I explained to him how is it that you are my sister hehe..

Moving on.. I had trouble getting it coz it was in my name and my brother is the one who went to get it and they wouldn’t give it to him so I had to give him my I.D so he can go and get it and long story short I GOT IT =D

Of course as usual, the had to open the box since it comes from the US to the middle east, I guess they wanted to make sure no bombs were in there lool.. I really don’t get why you have to open it?? I mean you can bloody see it from the scan.. Anyways.. MOVING ON!!

So I get out of work and straight I go to my mom’s house practically jumping over the cars to reach home fast lool..

And the gift was this =D

A gorgeous crystal plate.. I LOVE I LOVE I LOVE IT!!!

p.s the whole box was filled with newspaper I forgot to take a pic of that, it was so funny,, I had to dig in to get the plate out lool..

Thank you so much for the wedding gift.. it means a lot to me.. It’s sad you couldn’t make it but don’t worry I will so photoshop your face in my wedding album =p

Hopefully I will be able to see you sometime VERY soon.. And you still owe me the road trip and you are not off the hook =p

I love you dearly and I miss you heaps..
Xoxox
Your Sister Standy

Movies anyone?

Saturday, March 20, 2010 13
I had the worst movie experience EVER last Thursday!!

Like seriously I vow to NEVER EVER go and watch a late night show EVER again in Bahja Cinema..

Let me tell you the story..

Me and 7amani at 10pm we decided to just go out, have dinner and hit the movies.. So we buy the tickets for “Bad Lieutenant” and we went to have dinner by the time we came back it was almost time for the movies

11:45 we walk into the cinema which was like suq samak and filled with badooz (Bedouin)

11:50 we are waiting outside the door that is yet to be open.. Me and hubby and 1000 guys around us.. it was awkward.. We stood for like 10 min then I told 7amani lets just walk outside and come back in after 10 min or so when the doors open..

The movie is suppose to start at 11:55 and till 12:05 the doors where still closed..

When the entrance was quite we entered the movie and I wished if I stayed home and just rented something to watch rather than being here in the movies with a punch or air heads..

I pay my money and I expect to enjoy it right?

WRONG!!!

The men in the theatre were just ridicules, every other scene they clap or they whistle or they throw rude remarks in the air.. It’s like it’s their living room and I am invading their space!!

Don’t even ask me how the movie was coz I really did not enjoy it one bit! And hubby set next to a guy that smelled like oil and vics lol.. I could smell it, it was just horrible..

So never again I will go to a late night show in Bahja… I do want to try Shatti Cinema, I heard the people there are more civilized than the hoosh that was in Bahja..

When did I become such a girl?

Tuesday, March 16, 2010 18
Like seriously, what the hell is happening to me? I don’t recognize ME anymore lol..

1. I go out with a handbag
@@ SINCE WHEN???!!! i used to carry a wallet, my phone and the car keys.. now the least thing to take with me when I am out is a handbag lool..

2. Least thing to do before going out is powdering/foundationing my face, eyeliner and a lipstick/lipgloss!
OMG is this even me???? what the hell happened to natural beauty =p

3. My hangbad has all the necessary girly stuff from sanitizer, to hand cream to a perfume!LOOOL!! Funny how before my handbag consisted only of my wallet and a bunch of ATM receipts lool..

This was mentioned to me yesterday when I went out with friends of mine who haven’t seen me for quite sometime, of course they had a laugh on my expenses as they never thought they would EVER see this day where Standy is acting all girly…

To all the girly girls out there “WE ROCK” hehehe

Even my football girls are surprised lool..
Actually I am more surprised than anyone else..


But to be honest, I am “secretly” liking this =)
It feels good to be a girly girl sometime =p
