Oula Station Supermarket now Open!

25 Nov


So, seems Oula have opened their supermarket! I think this is great, BUT, what if people start sitting outside ‘beeping’ their horns like they do at the baqalas, this will be a nightmare.
SO, PLEASE, I’m BEGGING you, GET OUT OF YOUR CARS, form an orderly queue and start using the brain that you were born with.

TopGuest App for Iphone!

25 Nov

Just thought I’d let you all know about another iPhone app that is fantastic!!

Topguest combines social media and traveling for the roaming nomad. When you create an account on Topguest, you also choose to connect to any number of location-based social media services. This includes Foursquare, Gowalla, Loopt, Brightkite, Yelp and Google Latitude. Topguest then flags check-ins at certain places and shows you how far away you are from gaining a reward.

You can download it here, this is the main company website.

Soooon!

I’m traveling soon! I can’t wait!! I’m counting down the days!

I need a break, it’s been so long since I smelt air other than kuwait…I need that fresh, clean, breathable air that other countries seem to have that we don’t!!

I can’t wait to walk, climb mountains, drink water from waterfalls and have moonlight strolls on the beach!!

Ahhh…………….

Is anyone else traveling soon? I know many of you traveled for Eid, I wasn’t that lucky. I’m heading away for the Winter for around 5 or 6 weeks, stopping by London, Ireland and then ending up in France! Can’t wait!!

LOL .. This Asian guy boarded a plane to Vancover as the old white guy on the right and left the plane looking like the guy on the left… lol

The unnamed man boarded the Vancouver-bound flight on October 29. At some point during the flight, he went into the bathroom and took his mask off, emerging as the young, Asian man. – Was it a Hallowe’en Special? Or was he just seeking refugee status as they say? LOLOL

It took 4 years, but it’s finally here…Hydropolis

11 Oct

The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel and Resort is situated just off Jumeriah Beach, Dubai. Don’t believe it? Well, it’s true. Dubai have taken the X out of Extreme and created the first underwater hotel, ever!

Not sure whether I would actually stay here or not…something just feels slightly ‘the day the earth stood still’ freakishly scary about it. Are we taking things to the extreme a tad too much?


The hotel includes three areas; the land station, where guests will be welcomed, the connecting tunnel, which will transport people by train to the main area of the hotel, and the 220 suites within the submarine leisure complex.

It was due to open at the end of 2007 but is infact opening this week…they started in 2006, 4 years later and they have finished, better late than never I suppose.

My verdict: I’d rather stay above water, although, I suppose this could be the way forward…avoids all tsunamis, hurricanes, tornados…any world disasters really….2012..hmm..
