In one of my previous posts I've mentioned about the order I have placed from Zchocolate to one of my friends.. and I was pissed of! I wanted to surprise her but instead the chocolate last in the customs for 4 days! an entire period of 8 days a way from the receiver address which I believe that make the chocolate in totally bad condition, I was so embarrassed! I've been told it will reach her house within two days with DHL service, and the chocolate was perfectly packed with special boxing to prevent it from heat.
I was tracking my order number and I find out that it was finaly released from Kuwait customs, I called the DHL to ask them if they deliver the gift? and guess what:
Me: I want to ask about my order ?
DHL : what is your order track number Ma'am?
Me: it is #
DHL: ohh the driver went to deliver the order early morning today, but it seems no one there!
Me: how come you didn't call them, their number already mentioned on the delivery address?
DHL: there was no any telephone number provided with in the address!
Me: come on! I am sure the telephone number is there!, please send my gift immediately!
DHL: let me check again.. yes I think they call her.. emm... aaaa.. but I am not sure what happened then!, Ma'am I want you to know that there is a custom charge to be payed within delivery.
Me: WHAT... ohh thats make the things even more worse! it is a gift and I have already payed for everything when I placed my order!
DHL: I understand your situation... but an amount of 7.750Kd should be payed withing the delivery.
Me: ohh god! OK donot ask her for the payment! I am the one who will pay!.. Now I want you to call her to send my gift.
DHL: Ok... I will call her now do not worry we will send her gift immediately.. please accept our apology.. We are really sorry for the inconvenient.
Later on.. I spoke to my friend and she told me it was a very cool gift speciallly the way it was wrapped and engraved.. except that the chocolate was totally melted! "do not worry Techno I will put the chocolate in the fridge" .. And then I told her the whole story.
Later on.. I sent an email to Zchocolate informing them about what happened.. and for a response to my complaining.. they told me that they well send me another chocolate as a replacement for the damaged one!
Today I have received the replacement.. honestly it was really tasty and this time it was not melted! even though.. from now on I will never send any gift containing chocolate! to prevent my self from being in bad situations!

Databases have built in tools for manipulating and managing structured data. However, to manage unstructured data, backing it up is a challenge.
The FANs (File Area Network) overcome the problems involved in managing unstructured data, File area networks organize, switch, and route and manage an organization's unstructured data, without interrupting user access to the information. The FAN concept is built through the namespace concept that virtually presents directories, folders, and files that hold the complicity of data physical location in the network. It provides users uninterrupted access to their data. As Brocades Evans explained names space separate the data's logical location from its physical location. FAN's usually use either Microsoft's Distributed File System, which lets administrators group shared folders located on different servers by transparently connecting them to one or more namespaces or their own proprietary versions.

I have placed an order as usual from MAKI "Spicy seafood & Mushroom fried rice"and "Prawn Plum Sauce" while watching my favorite TV showtime "Ghost whisperer".
Ghost whisperer is one of my favorite TV Show Series, I have receives it last week from Amazon. Season 2 is similar to season 1 except that Melinda Gorden have been experiencing unusual ghosts that they can reside in dead human body so people can see them and talk to them. However both seasons 1 and 2 are cool and worth watching.

Finally I bought my dream car :) after waiting for the right moment to get it.. I wanted to have this car without monthly payment or any interest.. in fact if I am not able to buy this car I won't have it at all!! I don't encourage people to spend like 3 to 5 years paying 300 to 400 KD every month, with 3000 Kd interest or maybe more!

I am so into sweets and beverages, My Favorite cookies are Mini Chips Ahoy! soft & crunchy. Plus I love the roasted Nuts (Rifai mixed nuts) where they drive me nuts! and now since Ramadan started, I am not able to eat more from these stuff, as after having my Fotor I feel full and can't have more from these things, maybe in weekends while I stay awaked since I don't have work in the next day, I spent my time eating from these stuff and watching movies as usual.
The two fanta on the lower left was not mine :(
they only take place there for one of my friends who adore Fanta , but for me I don't like Fanta at all! My favorite drinks are ( Coca Cola Lime , Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino, A&W Root Beer, Budweiser and Oceanspray) .

Breakfast is the most important meal during the day, it should contain multi-fibers, fruits and dairy.
You can skip your dinner, eat light lunch, but never skip your breakfast, it is important to start your day with energy and to be healthier.
fruits are advisable to be before 2:00 PM as if you have it later on you wont benefit from its vitamins, I don't know if it is true or not but that what I've always read about it.
You can choose your Nike ID even for the watches and shoes.
