Seriously Gosh Darn-it! I so miss writing, I was just looking through some of my older posts back when I was completely oblivious to how he world works and I kind of loved reading my trail of thoughts. Who knew that keeping a blog not only allows you to connect with people but to revisit your past and just cherish it a bit more! Back in 2008 around this time I had just arrived with my Dad (pre-heart surgery) and was going through a different kind of adventure, not the great kind but one where you know how tough you are from the experiences you go through. I also remember back in 2008 the iPhone 3G came out and I stood in line for it just to SEE IT! I couldn’t even buy it back then LOL! The adventures I had to get that iPhone 3G were insanely awesome and interesting really. But enough about the past.
Have you missed me? I know very few of you still read this dusty little blog but I kind of hope that many of you still do check back from time to time. I’ve been more active on Instagram than on this blog simply because I’m just too bloody damn lazy! I will not promise my usual promise (the one where I say I will promise to write more) simply because I haven’t been doing that these past few months but I guess I can promise to come back every so often and share my thoughts and things I’ve gone through.
I recently had experienced a couple of “firsts” but more on that in the next post which should be very very very soon. To tell you the truth I write a gazillion posts in my head right before bedtime, then I sleep and forget them all and wake up with nothing on my mind LOL! I should copy Louis Litt from “Suits” for those of you who don’t know him, he’s a character on that show and he’s simply awesome he has that Recording Device to record his thoughts and daily events hehe and later on he listens to himself, that’s insanely awesome!
So what have I missed in the world? Who can’t wait for the release of the latest iPhone, the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air. Rumors point to it being available between September 19 – 25 hehe and I kind of believe them based on history :P

Gaming has taken the world of mobile devices by storm, and tablets are no exception. Tablets have swiftly proliferated to a point where they seem to be everywhere; The TabTimes reports there are an estimated 70 million name-brand tablet devices in the hands of American consumers and 300 million name-brand tablet devices worldwide. With tablets in the hands of so many gamers, tablet manufacturers and designers have realized the potential for tablet gaming.
It doesn’t matter what operating system you currently use, there is a tablet designed for playing games. If you are a Windows tablet user, the Rolls Royce of gaming tablets is the Razer Edge Pro, a powerful tablet outfitted with Windows 8, a 10.1 inch display and 8GB of DDR3 memory. Designed for gamers by gamers, the Razer Edge Pro is streamlined for gaming and has many optional accessories for different titles including clip-on steering wheels and keyboard docks.
Fans of the iOS architecture can turn to the Apple iPad Air with its beautiful 9.7 inch Retina display and access to more than 475,000 apps through the iTunes store. In stark contrast to the Razer Edge Pro, the Apple iPad is nearly a third of the cost and, while not specifically designed for gaming, is still a powerful tablet device capable of many functions. Apple has always been friendly towards gaming on its mobile devices, and game developers have flocked to get their games on the iTunes store.
So, this is the final list, there will be no amendments, if I had one or two messed up timings not my fault, its only because networks decide to air shows during the prayer timings and thus as the days pass by the timings change. I do hope you guys enjoy it. I have updated the design slightly (just because I want to :P) And you can find four smaller iPhone-Friendly Images (I don’t cater to Android :P).
All timings reflect Kuwait’s viewing time! (GMT +3)
[UPDATE: FINAL VERSION AVAILABLE NOW!]
Ramadan Kareem! It’s that time of the year when everyone stumbles across my humble little blog in order to see if I have posted this year’s Ramadan TV Schedule and although I had some doubts this year about whether I would prepare one or not, I was peer-pressured into creating one. As this is the night before Ramadan all timings are subject to change because each network likes to change its mind whenever so be on a look out for an updated version soon. My left hand is numb right now because of all the typing and my eyes are shot out hehe but then again the things I do for my amazing followers and readers!
You remember the drill this year? Two years ago many of you chose to steal this list and slap on your own watermark and call it your own, well I’d like to see you try again this year. The watermark is seriously all over the place and short of you being a magician and making it disappear I don’t think it’s possible. There are empty timing slots, and there are some shows with no timings at all on any network but that’s only because not all TV networks release their timings until the day of Ramadan. So for all intents and purposes this is a preliminary list until all timings are released and finalized.
Last night, June 2nd was the opening keynote of Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Convention (WWDC) 2014 Edition, this convention being the company’s 25th held special surprises for developers as well as the end user consumer. Tim Cook took the stage to introduce us to the new Operating System (OS X) Yosemite which was so close to being called OSX Weed :P as well as the iOS 8 both of which will be coming to everyone this Fall and will be available as a free upgrade.
So you’re probably interested in what each update contained, well I will summarize it to the bone (hopefully) and this should be easy for you guys to follow along. Although Tim Cook was the main keynote speaker when it came to announcing the new software products, Craig Federighi was the man of the hour who took to explaining what each OS had in terms of “What’s New” and made us laugh hilariously along the way.
One of the most interesting things is how this universe works, its so weird sometimes that you never know when you are given a chance to do something it in fact is in your best interest. Being unemployed for the better part of the year had me exhausting my savings fund to a point where I am now in debt to others. I am so in debt that I just cannot feel happy about receiving my new paycheck because I know I have to replenish everything I have exhausted (and that means putting a hold on enjoying and spending money on things I might love or want). I know it takes time for things to get back on track and nothing happens overnight but that doesn’t stop me from going to bed wishing to wake up in the morning and find out that I have won a lovely amount of cash to put me out of debt and restart my savings.
Are you a saver? Or do you live from paycheck to paycheck? I personally try to save at least 30-40% of my salary for that rainy day. Sometimes I would save a lovely amount and then blow it off on a trip to NYC, other times I would just keep on saving to either purchase a car I wanted or just to have that little nest for when I wish to not depend completely on my salary.
If you do save, do you find yourself digging into that fund during the month and using some of the amounts you have saved? I sometimes find myself in trouble and have to dig in (i.e. When you take your car in for service and find out you have to pay an arm and a leg to have some parts changed :P)
Ten years, ten freaking years of existence in this cyber world! Who knew that back in 2004 when I first began this blog that I will actually stick with it for 10 years. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would accomplish what I have done with this blog. To tell you the truth the moment I started it I felt that it will be like my other failed attempts at keeping a diary where I would give up 5 pages in. I am now 10 years into this blog. I have lost my way a couple of times, went into hibernation mode (still am in a way but I am slowly shedding that agoraphobia I have acquired in the past years with my blog) but in the end I am staying true to myself.
This blog has always been and will always be a personal space where I unleash my thoughts, ramblings, rants, obsessions and more. My obsessions at the moment revolve around technology, gadgets, and television shows. I shy away from a lot of the “journalistic” reporting of events and such and try to be unique. I feel if I am not unique then why even bother writing that one piece I wish to share with the world.
