Back from Riyadh

Just came back from Riyadh last night. It was my Bro’s official engagement.
The weather the great, nice during the day and cold at night.
I couldn’t belive how crowded the streets were, even in the weekend… that was too much.

Ittihad vs. Ittifaq

Went to see the football match last Thursday. Our team "Ittihad" didn’t play well and lost the match 1-2. The weather was great. It was fun despite the loss.
I’ve add some pics from that day.

PASSED my IT1 Exam

I took my IT1 Exam last week. it was very challengin 51 question exam.
I did 76%, I really messed up the IEEE names!!! Why should I know the name of a certain plug if I already know what it does!!! Somethings are common and okay to know their names. But why do I need to know the name of the power supply of the CD-ROM drive???
Anyway, I might do the CCNA exam sometime this month, wish me luck.

2001 Odyssey

Finally we have a decent family car.
It’s a 2001 Honda Odyssey. It’s standard version. Has a traction control, cruise control and a DVD Entertainment system.
Here are the pics:
Even though what I wanted was the all new 2008 Hyundai H1 (Starex):

Happy New Year

Finally 2007 is over. It has been a very long year…
@ work, we wated the whole year, and finished most project in the last 3 months… they were stressing… this year i’m planning to start early, but still waiting for the 2008 budget to be approved.
@ personal level… not very satisfied. I have to be better this year. My trip to Indonesia and Abu-Dhabi was like a dream come true. Haven’t travelled for 7 years then. It was refreshing and mind-opening.
My son joind the school, 1st grade, this came sooner that i thought Confused
Lost few loved ones, but this is life, I can only pray for them.
Hoping that 2008 to be a good year for all of us.

Back to Work (AGAIN)

Eid holidays are finally over… long and boring 9 days… was sleeping most of the time, been online yet "Away" most of the time.
Didn’t go anywhere, just hanged out with the guys for a night…
This time I’m really back to work, I really can’t work in Ramadan, it not the fasting, but the lack of sleep that troubles me.
Now I’m fresh and ready to go, have 7 projects (I THINK) to finish before the end of the year!!! Not really sure that we can finish them.
Almost 55K on my Camry’s odometer, it has lots of scratches and dents now Confused I really need to fix them, but changing the tires earlier this month did un-balance my budget, and I have to wait untill the new year before I can fix anything.

Last Day

OK… this was supposed to be published last week on 10th of October 2007:
Today is the last day @ work before Eid holidays
Got a 9 days (hopefully relaxing) off. It should be good as Ramadan was very tiring, it not the fasting that makes it tiring, it’s actually the lack of sleep.
Hit 54K on my odometer last week. Been to Makkah several times since I came back from my vacation. BTW: you may see my vacation videos here.
Made a new friend this week, nice and kind, soft and sweet Smile
My bro and sis are going to Indonesia for Eid holidays, leaving today, I hope them a safe trip…
