A day to be remembered

So today is Friday. I was going to take today off and post tomorrow but I just had such an interesting day today that I wanted to share what happened. So I was on my way to the graveyard as usual when I found a guy who was stuck in the sand. I asked him if he needed assistance as he was deep inside and no one else was around. I remembered that recently I went to the desert and got stuck and it is a scary experience especially when you're alone. I will post about the desert later and my trip to the north later. Well from what I remembered, it is important not to dig yourself too deep inside the sand. So with the help of my brother we started to dig the tires out of the sand and pushing the car out and success at last. The man was grateful for the help. It is a great feeling to finally help someone but I regret I didn't take any pictures of the process :p

I checked Google Images to find a decent image for this post but to my surprise I found these:

Bentley Continental stuck in Desert Sands

Bentley Flying Spur Stuck in the Sand

Pink Range Rover stuck in the Saudi Desert

The picture of a Rolls-Royce stuck in the desert is something unique and extraordinary though

Inpiration is back on track

I remember the day when I read this post on 965malls blog and was told to email my number and possibly get a chance to meet the blogger. Well that day came by so quickly and it was a great day indeed. The location was at Nestle Marina Mall for coffee and we both arrived at the same time. Usually it is difficult to socialize in Kuwait as everyone is so focused with their family and friends and their immediate circle that usually it doesn't allow mingling with others especially strangers. We aren't in the US or UK where you can meet someone at the Pub either. Work also is another factor that takes up most of our valuable time. Nowadays we spend life more on our smartphones then with people and doing what we don't rather then what makes us happy but that is for another post another day. Anyways, I was a bit nervous at first but I decided to just be myself and it turned out to be a fascinating day. Sometimes we just need to take the time and get to know the people around us literally and you never know what can happen. It was an honor and a pleasure to meet such an interesting man and to learn of the experiences he has had in life and how the experiences has made him who he is today. Well today I was ecstatic to see this:
