GulfRun 5 Coming Up

I have been waiting for this for some time now, I got a text message and I saw the update on my google RSS Reader. GulfRun 5 is coming up in January 2010, that does give me enough time to plan out a few modifications I have in mind. They also mentioned a few different things coming up, I’m curious to see what else is going to be coming. I really want to rip that track apart again, and I have a few ideas in mind, I’m anxious to get behind the wheel and go nuts, getting it all out on the track is perfect, and I’m also curious about the people coming in this year. Last year the Mitsubishi Evolutions were the scary monsters, they were anything but civil, Auto Cross, Drag, Inner Circuit, and GP Circuit they were always on the top 10 or top 5. Just even remembering the whole thing it was a hell of a lot of fun.

Ride to Sav3 Event

Dar Al Shifa Hospital and Kuwait BMW Motorcycle Club will hold the first Ride-to-Sav3 drive on Saturday 15th November, starting 3pm.

Bikers from the club and other fellow bikers (BMW motorcycles, Ducatis, Harleys) will drive from the Green Island to Dar Al Shifa Hospital to donate blood. The convoy of bikers marks the support towards the importance of donating blood.

This event is taking place this Saturday and everyone is encouraged to participate. Tristar motorcycles sent out text messages to its customers and I got the email above. I will hopefully be riding during this time and so will a few other people. Its for a really good cause and I think its important for people to give blood, there has been situation when people do need blood that I know off and they have asked for people to donate. Hopefully there will be a big turn out for this event.

Blooming @ Avenues

After running around a bit in Shuweikh, some of our friends were having an early breakfast at Avenues so we ended up there at 9:20 am. It was the first time for us to be in the Avenues that early in the morning, the place was empty, I had the urge to put on some roller blades, I would have most probably fallen flat on my face.

They seemed to have this big event called Blooming for Life taking place and every company was sponsoring a flower bed. This was the first time for me to walk into the Avenues with my very large camera and snapping away, I had security walk up to me about 7 times throughout the time I was there. Each security guy asked if I worked for a magazine or a news paper, and many of them told me its usually not allowed to take photographs inside the mall but this time its an exception but only of the flower beds. As I was taking pictures one or two of them was always following me around, they would always ask me not to point the camera in the direction of the mall. There was almost nobody inside the mall so it made no sense to stop me. I knew they weren’t the bad people and they were just doing their jobs so I didn’t argue too much with them, but I continued to snap away and I snuck in a few photos.

Some of the flower beds were amazing, it gave life to the whole mall and I think they needed more. The worst flowerbed was the one around the car, it looked it was starved for water. Overall some of them were very nice, they were very colorful smell and gave a fresh feeling to the whole mall. This was the first and only time that I have seen multiple empty Starbucks in the mall. The guys were ordering breakfast at Paul while I was snapping away, we had an early break fast so I just had some cake instead. It was very nice that the mall was completely empty and we forgot how dusty it was outside the mall.
