Bounty Hunter

February 11, 2010

Just saw a bounty hunter taking a guy away in cuffs from an apprenticeship college right next to my work… It was bizzare cos you normally see people in cuffs with cops.  The funny thing was the hunter was wearing duck hunting camo – in the city

Just found out that  Craigslist.com is now available in a Kenyan flavor!

Just my luck to find out after I left…

The site has been a saviour to me since I moved back, I got a job, a car, furniture and apartments all thanks to Craigslist!

Found this amazing Expense Calculator from XE.com. A very useful tool for those of you who travel to different countries a lot.

“Lara Croft” Alison Carroll In Mall of Emirates, Virgin

October 30, 2008

I walked into Virgin yesterday, and saw a huge stage with Tomb Raider Posters around it. It turned out that the new Lara Croft, Alison Carroll, was going to show up there. So wifey, cousin and I got invited to the VIP section and sat around till she showed up. Alison is the new poster-woman for the franchise starring in the upcoming Underworld game.

I haven’t seen any other real life models around which the game had been developed, so I am not an expert on commenting; however, Alison looked like any other girl that you might bump in the bar or the train, but a little glammed-up. Anyway, she was nice enough to answer our questions (I am sure she’s paid to do that ….) and we took a few pics with her and were even interviewed on MTV.

All in a day’s work, this is the second celeb I have bumped into in Mall of Emirates.
