A Day @ The Beach

The one thing I have to look forward to every week is getting to the weekend. Since its too hot to go riding or do anything else that involves outdoor activities, water sports is your best option. We have been going to the shalaih every weekend possible, even when its an insanely dusty we still go out and relax their, even bbqing with a little dust in the air.

The last weekend the water so pristine and clear it was amazing, I still think that Kuwait has one of the best water fronts in the world and I love it. The one thing that drives me nuts is people not taking care of the beaches and trash in the water, thats not even taking out the damage our waters have taken due to the government’s neglect and our crappy water treatment plants. That aside I just can’t believe how nice the water was, even when we were a good 700 meters into the ocean you can see clear down. And luckily this weekend the water didn’t feel so hot that you are swimming in soup, it felt normal for once with some cool undercurrents. Wakeboarding is still on the map for me but I haven’t had a chance, we are just enjoying swimming and relaxing as much as possible.

The best thing in the shalaih after swimming to chill, get something to eat, and watch show after show, nonstop until your either done with a season or move on to a movie. Now Ramadan is coming up in this heat, its going to be interesting to see who comes back to Kuwait, and if people still go to the beach, I remember last year we still went to the beach house and got in the water and went wakeboarding, but damn we got thirsty.

Food @ The Chedi – Oman

While in Oman I tried keeping to this diet, or trying to eat light throughout this whole trip. I just made sure that whatever I ate that was really good I would walk it off, and I took the opportunities to enjoy the fish and all forms of crustaceans. To say that the food at The Chedi hotel in Muscat is exquisite is a huge understatement. The service itself was top notch, probably one of the best service I have had in a while, they were all very helpful and accommodating on all forms but the food was just something else.

Breakfast in the morning was a large selection not including what you could order from the kitchen. I had fresh cheeses and turkey, labnah and breads, all kinds of juices. Then came the scramble eggs, they turned the food into an art form and it tasted so good I wanted more. The lunch was amazing, I can’t remember the last time I had lobster and since having it there I kept asking for it. The meal was amazing and the each dish was better then the other. Their Tiger Prawns were huge, bigger then normal and everything just tasted so fresh. I’m going to have to visit their again just for the food and this time not on business so I can enjoy it and relax while their instead of running back to the hotel and eating then heading back out again.
