a different experience for cheese lovers but this event could have been better.. the music was very cheesy, some kind of instrumental remix of an old egyptian classic, abdulwahab if i am not mistaken! come on guys!! why?? and this VIP gate? apparently people have entered a competition whereby the winners gets access to that VIP gate.. quite lame.. i asked whether this event was to promote that the cheese is light, but the answer came negative, this is only to promote the unusual breakfast experience with philadelphia.. so final verdict: the kids had fun but the best side of this event was these pouffes where one could sit and chill in this lovely weather - oh and by the way, no one puked!
some of the early reactions i've heard this morning at the audi stand to be unveiled shortly at the avenues
future mobi is a new product that will invade your mobiles and your lives very soon, whenever you get into a mall – future mobi is a device that is set in different mall locations and will:
1- bombard you with ads in various formats, pdf, mp3, movie player etc..
2- junk you with news and offers through the future mobi app loaded with participants’ from different categories, from banking to restaurants etc… – these participants will be displaying special offers and news for you to get access to while you’re inside the mall
so you walk into a mall and your mobile starts beeping with special offers from future mobi’s ads service, then you open the app and read through various categories on news and offers, isn’t that great? now you can forget about going out for shopping or drinking coffee you’re your friends, just get your eyes fixed on your mobile for more junk news and if someone calls just ignore!
according to friday times, 3 female expatriates (2 syrians and an egyptian) were referred to the criminal investigation department, to be deported after being caught begging under the pretext of being ill - the egyptian woman had a valid residence and the syrians were in the country on family visas - an official said that the women arrested from a famous mall where they produced medical documents indicating that they were seriously ill and sought money for treatment from public - there no doubt the culprits are guilty but is the punishment proportionate to their crime? that’s like killing a fly with a cannon…
i came across this weirdest sign while walking out of arraya mall - flabbergasted i was for a few minutes, until a security man comes forward to stop me from taking more pictures so he goes "why do you want to shoot a man throwing garbage with a hammer in his butt?" thank god he did not see what i saw!!
I have recently spotted this cool solar-powered desk lamp at ikea, but apparently the latter is only the tip of the iceberg as the retailer is on a mission to save energy - back in august ikea began to phase-out all incandescent light bulbs in their US stores and recently introduced a halogen bulb which can be used in a standard light socket, this is called a retro-fit halogen bulb - by only putting good options on the shelf, retailers can make it easy for customers to do the right thing, in this case, help them live an everyday sustainable life - hope ikea's initiative becomes contagious!
and an hour later most of it was gone!!
rumaithiya’s police station witnessed one of its strangest events as a woman came forward with a complaint against a shoe shop owner who refused to change a tight pair of shoes she had bought just over… a year ago! the rumaithiya’s police refused to raise an official complaint as the ministry of trade is the legal authority for such matters, nevertheless the woman was not discouraged by this minute hurdle and went on to raise her complaint at that ministry – I’d say the lady gained a few pounds in the wrong places but her running around will soon sort things out with her tight shoes, and consequently the evil shoe shop owner
