Water Damaged – Nexus 4

WNexus1

Liquids are one of the things that I keep far away from my desk, but every once in a while I have a bottle of water there, and even that I am very conscious of it. There have been a few incidents but luckily nothing has been damaged. Until the other day I was working late into the night on emails and posts, and I had a bottle of water next to my Nexus 4 and Keyboard. I turned around and I knocked the bottle over, I could even see it in slow motion, I was saying “Nooooooo”. I tried to grab it but my mind was operating on fumes so that didn’t work. I quickly lifted the bottle removed all electronics from the vicinity.

I got some water on the screen of the Nexus 4 and the keyboard, everything else was fine. I soaked up the keyboard quickly and the Nexus 4, the keyboard didn’t have any issues. When I used the Nexus 4 it was fine but the speaker by the ear pieces sounded like a radio from the 1950s. I tried drying it with a kleenex and forcing it in but didn’t work, still sound crappy 15 mins later. There was only one solution that I knew off, I got a small glass flower pout and filled it with rice and stuck the phone in it all night long. Next day I used the phone crossing my fingers, and it was perfectly fine, no issues. I don’t know why but I always remember that rice can soak up water and humidity from electronics, they tell you to take the battery out but in my case I left it in there and charge it over night too, worked perfect the next morning.

Mawash Emrabyan

One of the most satisfying dishes that anyone can have after a long day. Mawash tastes very good and I love Mawash with Shrimp, it really tastes so good and so warm. This dish isn’t easy to get right but once the recipe is perfect it tastes so good and especially the small shrimp.

I love these jumbo fried shrimp, I can eat them like popcorn, and especially with that sauce. The thousand island sauce or simply Ketchup and Mayo, and I add a bit of hot sauce to make it a bit spicy. I had a very nice nap after this meal.

Muchboos Deyay

After a long week this is one of the rewards I look forward to at home. Muchboos Deyaay is one of my favorite dishes and I try to have it at least once a week, and every time after coming back from a trip it is a must to be the first meal as soon as I get back home. Nothing fills me for the rest of the day as much as this, and losing weight doesn’t seem to be on the horizon at this point in time.

Pure Hunger

Usually I try to eat earlier in the day so that I don’t get too full at night, I try to keep it light at night as to maintain or lose weight. I did a pretty good job of losing the weight I gained going from 96 KG back to 93 KG. Last night was a different story, I got so caught up with work and then a few social events that I forgot to eat and didn’t manage to get home until 10:45 pm. At that point I didn’t care what the hell time it was and decided to eat a very late lunch. Did I love the muchboos laham and kubbah bil laban, yes I did very much, I enjoyed every bite and then laid down in front of the tv for a good half hour before deciding to move again. This rarely happens with me but last night it was a much needed meal.

Meat for Lunch

Every once in a while I feel like a hearty meal, its more on the often side, and the other day I felt like Muchboos Laham just before traveling. I have this reasoning that I prefer to get on a plane with a full stomach then eating airplane food even if it might be good. Came back from work early around 5 pm to have a meal before heading to the airport. I love the smell of muchboos rice just as it leaves the kitchen, its this filling smell thats make just want to taste the rice on its own. As usual I ate more then I should have but I felt good about it and laid back to watch an episode or two of anime before heading out.

Deyaay & More

Coming back from work I called ahead and told them to put lunch, as soon as I came in dropped my things in my room, I could smell the rice from two floors up. I was trying to remain calm while heading down to eat but that composure didn’t last long, I was hungry as hell and I wanted to eat like there was no tomorrow. This is probably my favorite dish, its an automatic that I have this dish after every time I travel, its a very satisfying meal and that is what I was looking for right after work.

I was watching Lie To Me while eating, I managed to catch most of the show but my attention was initially with the food. I don’t like it when its too oily or when it isn’t cooked right but this time around it was perfect, I’m a leg man so I enjoyed those drumsticks. After I was done with the meal I did what came naturally, laid down on the couch and passed out while something was playing on the tv.

Food At Last

After a long day at work I was happy to come home to stuff myself. It was one of those long days where you don’t get a chance to eat, and as soon as I got home I dived right in. It has been a long time since I had muchboos laham, and this tasted damn good. As soon I was done I wanted to pass out right in front of the TV, I did for little while before deciding to get up and head out for a change of venue.
