global village

last year i didnt really enjoy the global village...inno it was so crowded, really hot...i just didnt like it...so i wasnt looking forward at all to go to it this year...evnthough i heard this year its a lot nicer...its totally in a different area which is huge....

my friends wanted to go...i wont stay on myown in the dorms, so i went with them...last year the parking was a horrible thing...we spent almost a whole hour till we managed to go int...but this year it was much easier...it didnt take us five minutes...maybe its also cuz we went after the DSF has ended...

on the entrance i found maps of the place....i loved the maps...it was really helpful...everything was orginized in a better way....to be honest i enjoyed my time there....

we went into the saudi corner, lebaneese, syrian, palestanian, jordanian, kuwaiti, chineese, japanease, german, italian and swiss corners....of course i have liked the saudi corner the most :p....i just love my country :D...the thing i like in the saudi corner...that it was the only one that has covered the whole floor with ceramic...it was sooo shiny :D

ksa

the german corner was really good...i actually wanted to buy some stuff from there...

we stayed there from 9 till 12 and we enjoyed it....if u havent been there...go u wont regret it...the global village will stay on till the 31st of march so dont miss it...1 month more to go :D

today i have decided to go out with a friend...first of all i have struggled for a whole hour trying to find a free taxi (i have to get a car soon :@)...and when i find one, he tells me that he will be here in 30 minutes...and he never comes...i got so pissed that in the end i called four different taxis and decided to go with who comes first...5 minutes later i found a free taxi in front of the dorms so we went with him and ditched the others....i was soooo pissed...

the 2nd issue is to find a place to go to...we went almost to every where and we wnna go some where new...we always end up going to the city center but this time nop...cuz as i have said before i hate crowded places...soo we decided to go to lamcy plaza...i have never been there so y not :D

it wasnt bad after all...its full of indian ppl but its nice and different than all the other malls....

after that we went to a thai restara called lemon grass...its next to lamcy plaza...to be honest the restaurant's logo made us go in...its a very cosy, nice & romantic place...really quiet, not crowded...its just amazing....their menu was soo cool...its all in light green (cool color btw)...

the service was really good, maybe cuz not lots of ppl were eating there...and finally, their food is really really good...i enjoyed it to a limit that i started to eat uneatable stuff :S...let me tell u wat happened exactly...i have ordered this kind of chicken that comes wrapped with smthg that has to do with a tree (i didnt understand wat was it, but it was a tree)...well the thing is i didnt know that until i have eaten almost all of it :S...it was soo embaressing...but it was delicious :S...my friend started calling me tree eater :@...

tree

the right side is the original size of the tree...and the left side is wat was left after i ate it :D...

after that dinner...back to uni...btw it was really coooold...and i was wearing a t-shirt only...then i wore a scarf ;)

subway @ 5

yesterday was a really nice day...well first of all i went out with the guys to watch a movie in the city center...but we ended up having dinner in china times cuz we were so hungry to watch a movie...and we kind of saw all the movies in da cinema...u know china times?? its beside chilli's and coco's...its a good restaraunt if u r sick of fast food...but there are lots of better chineese restaraunts...

after we came back to the dorms...we played cards...a game called trix...it takes at least 2 hours to finish...it needs lots of thinking and lots of practice...i always lose but am learning...only 4 ppl can play this game and yesterday i was ranked 4th :D

we ended playing @ almost 5 am...and we were really sleepy and hungry...we choose our stomach's over sleeping...we had to think of a place that opens 24/7...so we went to subway :D...all of us looked miserable...
