Propaganda shower caps

Sometimes you need to take a fast shower while you want to prevent water form entering your hair.. Some people use to shower twice a day or maybe three times a day.. However we should use a good shower cap in order to keep water away from our hair, specially if you've made your hair in the salon and do not want it to lose it shape! Those shower caps are unique in their design and the way they are made to prevent from water entrance! You can find them in Limelight but they have a very small collection of those shower caps and every so often they are sold out! I used to get them from Thailand before during my visits to Bangkok.. On of my Friends calls me while she was in Thailand for Eid holiday and told me that she found a shop that provide different color and design from those shower caps.. I was like waaaw get me the entire collection!

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!

I used to keep some Mcvitie's Digestives biscuits in my office drawer in order to have something good and fast when ever I felt hungry! but certainly that was long time ago. Since two years I stopped keeping biscuits at work and instead I kept having multi brown flakes with milk early morning for breakfast. Today I went to the Co-Op and I find different kind of mini McVitie's biscuits which were distributed from the UK .. I bought the Milk chocolate digestive and the choc chip cookies and both were t a s t y! Now my point why it is not possible to have the good things in our Co-Op? because those things are rare and you barely find them from time to time in our country.

From time to time it is useful to meditate, fill your room with candles, Aroma , and soft music. Relax..breath a good air.. try to forget everything and concentrate on the nature of life.. take a deep breath e x h a l e & i n h a u l.. repeat it once again. Imagine your self facing the sea side..hearing the seagull,feel the breeze.. free up your brain.. back off from your daily routine.. close your eyes..Take a deep breath... think about all your dreams .. try to reach them one by one.. imagine your self there where you can find the peace of mind..touch them.. hold them.. delete all the bad memories in one click .. imagine that there is a delete button.. start pressing this button.. delete the dark side of your past,your negative thoughts.. and restore your self with hope,energy,and bliss. Who said we can't forget? you are the master of your life and with a little of hope and faith you going to reach all your aims..all the negative feelings will vanish.. keep concentrating on the good things.. smile.. yes smile! and remember there is a better life, there is a glorious place.. with a little of courage and hope you will reach your dreams.. your life is you.. your future is you.. god gave us the brain to distinguish between the right and wrong.. choose the right path and you'll never regret. Ask god he like to hear you! ask again he like to hear you asking again, god is here he is the creator.. god is everywhere, when ever you fail remember "never giveup!" try again.

Data Accessibility improvement with FANs

Various companies have complex information systems that hold unstructured data which contain information that is not categorized in fixed categories such as Doc, PDF files.
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.

The secret

I've been reading through "the secret" book and it sounds interesting! The secret is about the law of attraction that says "like attract like" and goes through three steps which is: (Ask, believe, receive). Your thoughts become things that's what the book mentioned. it is similar to the law of gravity, the law of attraction does not compute words like (don't , didn't, not), like for example if you thought of something like "I don't want to see Sam" it will be translated as"I want to see Sam"!! as your inner part will receive it as it is without the negation words! You should clear your mind from the negative thoughts.. you are a magnet and your thoughts have a frequency that increases with your thoughts.. whenever you have bad thoughts try to remember the good things in your life, always smile and laugh! attract the good things to your self, be positive and make the universe a beautiful place filled with happiness. to know more about the secret read the book or watch the movie, it is really amazing!

MAKI & Ghost Whisperer

MAKI & Ghost Whisperer, originally uploaded by MissTechnogal.

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.
