A bad hair day

Posted in personal at 2:17 am by Salah

Recently, I’ve been relating myself with this statement a lot. There are days when my hair would look weird, and I would have no other way to fix it but to wear a hat.

Not today though!

P.S: I’m not very fixated with my hair or my looks, I’m just blogging!

It was a long day.

Just walked in my house after a one day trip to Dammam KSA that started 4:30 AM, and ended at 8:30 PM same day.

Man, after such a trip, nothing is like taking off the clothes i’ve been wearing and standing under a nice shower before going to bed!

Quick debate: Captain America

Posted in movies, review at 4:30 pm by Salah

Had this discussion with my marvel-fan brother who loved Captain America movie:

Me: Captain america was a disappointing movie.

Bro: give me a good reason, or point to the parts where you thought it could be better.

Me: First of all, I didn’t buy the part where Chris Evan was weak before he was pumped up to C.A. It just didn’t fly like it was supposed to.

Bro: well, acting as a whole is considered fake, if that’s what you’re getting to. And do you know that what you saw is actually chris evan’s real body but edited graphically to look smaller. It wasn’t like his real head stuck on a different person’s body.

Me: and what’s the deal with captain america and his super hero powers. What are his powers? He just kept kicking people in their chests or guts to make em fly off his way. Once a while in the movie he would hold a guy from his shirt and throw him in the air, but that barely showed any super powers.

Bro: Captain America’s power is not so outrageous like Hulk or spiderman; he’s rather slightly stronger than the most athletic person in the world. That’s why you see him jumping higher than a normal human being, but not as close as spiderman.

Me: hmmm, i think we better save the good talk about it for another time (needed to head out).

The debate is absolutely not done, and more is coming up!

GMC thing

Every GMC car I entered that was used for a while, has the same scratched-out ac button. Is it something that GMC is trying to cut costs with?

Unexpected NOT so great movie

Posted in movies, review at 12:21 am by Salah

Postponing posts I want to write is not what I had in my mind when I started to blog again; but the fact that I need my laptop to write a detailed post, is what’s making me do so. So, this is not a full review!

Best 2 parts of the movie, and I believe they wanted it to be so, is when C.A wakes up to find himself 70 years away from his life as he knows it; and the after credit part where they reveal to you the avengers’ preparing-for-war clip.

Out of Thor, Iron man, Hulk, and Spiderman, Captain America was definitely the weakest movie. Maybe I set the bar high for the movie? And why not, just look at the poster!

At last I’m going to watch Captain America: First Avenger. It’s going to be one glorious movie night (4:30 AM actually).

Maki Kuwait, keeps disappointing me

Posted in food, kuwait, review at 4:35 pm by Salah

20111026-232048.jpg

The first time i visited Maki was 3 years ago at marina. Although the place was great, the service wasn’t something to be proud of. To this day, i remember the dull face our waiter had the whole time he waited our table. The reason, however, that made me decide not to go there again was the bad pricing. It was just for a person who tried many sushi places in the states, too expensive.

For some reason, few years later, i decided i want to give Maki another shot after i have tried places like wasabi and osaka. Guess what, Maki still beats them with the rediculous prices, and the food wasn’t special or even worth the price.

Today (2 years since my last visit to Maki), a friend of mine suggested we hit Maki. i didn’t want to bitch about it, so i agreed. However, the prices are still the same, and the food as well. Next time anyone, and i mean ANYONE, who suggest to me Maki, i will easily turn down and refuse. It’s official, the place is just overpriced compared to osaka, which is way cheaper than Maki and the food is just as good if it wasn’t better.

Sorry for the vague review, but I’m blogging from my ipad, and I can’t go into so many details using it. Maybe I will review it and compare it in detail when I’m on my laptop.

My subway sandwich

Posted in food at 5:47 pm by Salah

A lot of times deciding what sandwich I want and what ingredients on it drives me crazy! Of course choosing the ingredients (veggies and sauce) is the hardest part.

That’s why i decided to contribute on helping everyone standing in Subway line by giving out my special sandwich recipe.

Type of sandwich:

Tuna on a parmesan oregano bread

Cheese:

Both american and cheddar

Veggies:

Tomattoes
Black olives
Onions
Jalapeno peppers

Sauce:

Both ranch and southwest sauce with a sprinkle of oregano on it.

Take the sandwich as it is and don’t toast it in the oven!

I call this sandwich “The king of short pump.”
