Tourbillon

IWCBP.jpg

It is basically an extremely well crafted type of watch, quite a few manufacturers make tourbillon type watches and one of my pet peeves are these types of watches. I usually like my to be industrial looking, and rough so that I wouldn’t be afraid to use and I do like nice watches. A good watch always catches my eye, and some of them really amazing.

The pricing of these watches reflect the amount of work going into it. The price range of tourbillon watches is between $90’000 up to $1’000’000 and these watches most probably do not have any type of jewellery attached to it. I extremely dislike any male watch that is literred with jewellery I think they are very tacky.

New Years Anyone

Bigapple.jpg

Im most probably chilling in Kuwait for New Years. I really dont think that Im going anywhere, and I have spent a few New Years in Kuwait and you have to pretty much provide your own source of entertainment. New Years in Kuwait is just like any other day, no real feel to a new year. And thanks to all the religious MPs that we have they banned all types of concerts in Kuwait, which is ludicrous but it is still in effect. The events done at restaurants are horrible, and I went once and I wont repeat my mistake. I have spent New Years in different parts of the US and its extremely entertaining. Things were pretty good in Kuwait until the MPs wanted to intervene, for some reason every time they intervene they usually do something dumb, but they were voted in and nothing much can be done about it.

We were previously planning to go to Lebanon for New Years but that went out the window, and I hope things settle down soon. I havent been to Lebanon in over 4 years, and I was looking forward to seeing how it has changed. And going to anywhere in the Gulf is out of the question.

So I just hope for good weather on New Years day because I will be riding. I dont care how cold it is I will be riding New Years morning!

Washing Up

After a good day of riding in the San Francisco and around the 9 me and Eric headed back to the apartment to wash up the bikes. It was fun as hell riding around all those corners, but the one thing that got on my nerves was that the bikes weren’t clean. So we parked the bikes next to the car wash area and we filled the buckets with water for the sponges. I was using a grime spray on the bikes that sits for 2 mins then we wash it off with the hose and then we go over it with the sponges. It was great getting down and dirty, also a little wet… well very wet. I had a good spray that I got from the San Jose Yamaha Dealership, the sprae parts guys there are great, and it gets all the oils spots off of any engine part, cleans it right off. After about an hour of cleaning the bikes were sparkling and I was happy as hell! I wanted to give them enough time to dry off. We finished just as the sun was setting what a perfect day!

ETC – Shuweikh

For a while I was complaining that there arent any high quality A/V shelves or funiture available in Kuwait, and Panasonic in Salmiya has Denon home theater electronics. But there is a home theater company in Kuwait which is run by a man who is passionate about Audio Visuals and high quality equipment. They also carry Onkyo A/V equipment, Mirage Speakers, Meridian speakers, and other theater type equipment. I cant recommend this place enough if your looking for the right type of equipment, and they will install and configure your equipment for you. I like dealing with them, and I have not had any problems working with them. I have two theater rooms setup for feeling the sound of a good theater.

They also carry Omnimount racks, wall mounts, and stands. These are high quality mounts with extreme amounts of flexibility, and a real solid build. Their pricing is pretty reasonable for the real good service you recieve so I dont haggle too much regardin pricing. I really do enjoy going there every once in a while.

Fuse Short Circuit

Lightning.jpg

It has been strange weather the past couple of days since it could get cold and warm in the same day and we are in the first week of december. I wanted to make sure that people wouldnt freeze in the house so we took out all the heaters of storage and started putting them where they used to be. But I hate having a heater so I never put one in my room, and sometimes because of the weather I sometimes switch on the A/C if no one is in the other rooms that is connected to this A/C system. I love sleeping in the cold!

So after putting each on in its specific location I was slowly switching each one on to see if everything was on. Then I went for the fourth heater, and then boom and a really funny smelling burn in coming out of the heater. It tripped the fuse box for the floor so everything went out and I was going to go nuts beacuse it switched off items on my PC that I didnt save. After a little flip switching in the fuse box I got things working again and I checked that all the other heaters were ok, but damn it stell smelt of a burning after that broken heater. Then I spent 20 mins selectively switching items on in my PC armada! It was funny seeing what happened!

Photo Blocks

This is a pretty cool idea, I just saw this product on Uncrate and I think its really a cool thing to do with your photos. I used to hang a ton of photos in and around my apartment, and in the house Im thinking of doing that but I have to choose specific pictures to put up.

Review: Talladega Nights

talladega.jpg

I heard that this movie was funny, but I wasn’t expecting much since Will Ferrel doesn’t make a great movie everytime. I had a feeling it would be funny, but I wasn’t sure how funny though. The movie was better then I predicted because Will Ferrel fit the character like a glove. It was hysterical since everyone’s lives revolved around racing and their attitudes towards racing and the american way. The part that was hilarous was Ali G’s part in the whole movie, he was Will Ferrel mortal enemy and this whole movie is just funny as hell. It was well made, and the actors fit their parts. If you like Will Ferrel then you will love this movie, and love him in this movie.

Workout 51206

I was slightly drained that day but really really looking forward to hitting the gym. I changed at home and went in the Land Cruiser because I wasn’t sure if it was going to rain but I wasn’t going to try my luck. So I head over to the gym and I see a bunch of cars, and Arjan Complex filled with people like usual.

Im already in my gym cloths so I go up and I head straight to the elytpical that I always use. The funny part is that I have been using the same elyptical for the month and a half that I have been going to the gym. So I think Im sticking it!

On my left there was an elderly lady, and on my right on a treadmill there was an elderly man. Then I remember that they are couple and they are very nice. Last time I went on my bike they told me they like my bike, and like my gear! They were a very cute couple and even though they are pretty old they came to the gym together. It made me smile! Now you can’t ask much more then that.

After 30 mins on the elyptical I went to the machine which targets the back muscles and started from there. The salsa class was going at full swing and this time it was more organized, everyone seemed to have specific partners and do their thing. After that I was rotating between all the back machines, and started with some leg excercises. And just kept on going until I felt exhausted and I finished all the reps that I had to do. Then I went straight home for a nice shower and passing out for work.

It feels great after a nice warm shower!

Halo 3 Trailer

halo3.jpg

The one game I am looking forward to more then any other game. Halo is so good it should be classified as a genre of its own. Forget the PS3 this is the game that of 2007. No other reason to buy another game!

Halo 1 is so good that it keeps getting sold out in Kuwait, and Halo 2 can only be found in low quantities. People buying X-Box 360s still buy Halo 1 and Halo 2. What does that say.

Just look at the trailer!!!

Funny Envy

So the other day I went to Kuwait airport to pick-up my mother from the airport since she has been away for the past couple of weeks. She was arriving on an early flight I was at the airport early in the morning expecting the plane to be early too. I thought I would just wait in starbucks and take a look at the magazines in and around there.

As I walk in I see that the plan is delayed for 34 mins, so I decided to get breakfast before going to work. As I walk in there a was a young man on the right who has a decently long religious type beard. My assumption here is that you wouldnt grow it out to the extent where you could measure with a ruler except if your going for the religious look, or maybe the Chuck Norris 1980s look but a little more shaggy, I dont really but it was long.

I saw that he was working very intensly on his laptop and I was curious as to what he was doing on his laptop. So as I am walking up to the sales counter, lined with 4 to 5 starbucks employees, I turned to the right as if looking at the mugs but Im really looking at the guy’s laptop screen. I was in such a shock that I got a closer look, as I got a little closer I was interrupted by one of the starbucks employees seeing if I want a mug or something I told him in a sec. The first time I saw his screen he was playing a game, as I got closer it was a real time strategy game! I was envious of the guy! I wanted to be playing too! It looked like a Command and Conquer type game! I love those types of RTS games, especially with the modern weapons. He was highlighting here, attacking there, building overthere, and sending troops to support the attack! I was watching him intently until I noticed I was pretty damn close to the guy and left to order my breakfast! I was laughing at my self because I wanted to play video games early in the morning too. Now that was a nice shock in the morning! It really entertained me, and after a while my mother arrived, but I was still laughing at my self for being somewhat jealous of the guy who could play video games from 6:50am in the morning, and by the time I left the guy was still playing. I need to play some games!
