The Stig car again..

I will bore you with pictures of my old car.. just because I regret selling it..

And watch the video.. to see me when I used to be a kid.. 

What would the world be like if everything has to be practical?
What if everything was made to satisfy a need ?
Would there be a room for dreamers ?

Here's to the dreamers!

Ferrari SA Aperta in Kuwait

I am lucky again, I saw a Ferrari 599 SA Aperta here in Kuwait. one of only 80 cars made.

The SA Aperta uses the same engine used for the 599 GTO, due to its heavier weight and body dynamics. It is the only topless 599 so far, just like the last 575 Panamerica.

I love Dubai..

Dubai is my destination when I think of a quick escape..
Why ? 

First of all, I would like to congratulate The United Arab Emirates of their 40th anniversary of their union of the 7 Emirates. 

I would like to share with you some of the pictures in Dubai..
Dubai Convention Center

Dubai World Trade Center .. I guess ;p

Algarhoud bridge, 6 lanes each direction! just like the new fifth road between Rumaitheya and may dan hawalli!!!

iSound test - Mobile charger

In november alone I travelled 3 times.. so I needed a charger to be with me everywhere.. especially in Hajj.

So I asked how2q8 about chargers, and he recommended it. So I went and got it for 45 KD. which is almost triple the price in Amazon.

details : 
  • 5 Powered USB Ports allow you to charge up to 5 USB Electronics at a time (like iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Droid, ect.)
  • LED indicators let you know how much charge you have left on the battery
  • Adds 30 extra hours of usage to iPad
  • Charges any device with a maximum current requirement of 2.4 Amps

In order to review the charger, we abused it.

During Hajj.. I used to charge my BB and iPhone 4 for 10 days without recharging the battery. and it did last the whole period.

And as you see in the 1st picture, we did abused it in Dubai too during my trip to the motor show. we had more than one device hooked to the iSound at all times.

Currently it is the only portable charger with 5 USB ports. and LED light.

It comes with 4 small indicators to tell what's remaining so you know when to charge it.

All in all, The best available in the market and highly recommend it if you're a traveller. or for camping and long fishing trips.

GulfRun 26 Hours Karting Endurance Race - Part2

The last hours of the GR Karting endurance race are getting faster and faster with three teams battling for the first place.

And I gotta get some shots before its dark again..

Isn't he cool!
I would've asked him to stop and have some tea.. but he was busy.

Wataniya Team cheering  

One hour to finish!

There were lots of sleeping bags and caravans for drivers and team managers to rest a bit.. but eventually, no one did!

Agshar team in 3rd place

I forgot the name of the 2nd team! I am getting old!

And first place Gulf Cable Team.

A Picture of all the teams together.

Top 3 teams done 2700+ laps in 26 hours. This is not easy by the way. 

All in all, GR Management.. Job well done..
Great effort as usual.

GulfRun 26 Hours Karting Endurance Race - Part1

The first of its kind in the middle east.
GulfRun really and finally did it with their 26 hours Karting Endurance Race in Kuwait. No one can say it ease to manage or even organize such an event.

The race Started at 3 pm Kuwait local time during one of those cold cloudy November days in Mishref fairgrounds. I could not attend the opening and starting of the race due to some commitments.

I will share with you some of the pictures, since the total of pictures is 1000+

I guess I distracted this guy!


Thats how small the tires are..

Marshalls did a great job by preventing any accidents and being alert for 26 hours, working in different shifts. some of them even didn't get an hour of rest. Great Job!

Wait for Part two soon, with more pictures of the second day, and some funny moments along with the ending ceremony.
