A new camera

February 22, 2008

I may be one of the few backwards people that haven’t ever owned a camera. Well, not counting the people that live from hand to mouth on a day to day basis, just counting the people that fall in my demographic.

I have been using cameras that are on my phones for a long time, and after living in Kuwait for a year, and checking out the great pics that everyone else has on their blogs(Dita), I finally got around to going out and getting myself a decent camera.

I was thinking of getting a SLR camera. I come from the “go big or go home” mentality, and believe in going straight for the higher-end market stuff.  However, this time around I had to reign the impulsive buyer in me, and I have been shopping for all kinds of cameras .

I finally decided on the Fuji S8000 FD. It is a higher-end digital camera, and it satiates my need of having a bigger lens and zoom and at the same time not being a complicated(for me at least) SLR camera.  I am now taking it everywhere with me so I can capture as much of Dubai as I can.

Jerked Off

Just picked up a bottle of Jerk Sauce from Sultan Centre in Salmiya. Pretty unimpressive considering I’ve been waiting to get my hands on Jerk Sauce for a long time. This one was sweet like bbq sauce …. My search continues…


Lifestyles of the Rich!

July 17, 2007

Walking through the Avenues mall today, I came upon this Bugatti. The company was actually featuring a launch of a new men’s cologne valued at KD. 975 ( CDN $ 3600 approx.) for a 75 ml bottle. Yes, you read right, KD 975. For that price the cologne should act like the pied piper lynx 😉. It included a solid gold ingot. The listed price SANS gold ingot = KD 27. Not sure why they’re selling the gold ingot with the cologne anyway. I didn’t get a picture of the actual cologne, because I was distracted by the fine piece of machinery featured above.
