Pull & Push

Baskin Robins

I was having lunch as usual at al-faisaliah food court because of our head quarters there (Kash5a 9a7), So I was in the middle food court, the one behind Baskin robins, While I was enjoying my Kudu lunch I saw this sign on the baskin robins door, I was wondering how could such mistake come out from such place … Dose it mean both can be done (Pull & Push) or is it a translation misunderstanding.

Our Radio Stations

We are one of the biggest countries spending our time in our cars …are we hearing something useful … Na … we are so poor in our radio stations … like for God’s sake who here’s Riyadh station (Program 1 and 2)??
You feel in 1905. Even the Quran station … the content is good but “sadly” you just don’t feel the Quality of the Sound you here … You can see the difference in Abu Dhabi or Sharqah Quran Stations.
MBC FM is a 24/7 Music station 24/4 of them are adds, The quality of sound is O.K but the content “booooo”.
Panorama was good in the begging it had great on air shows, but also “sadly” it took the direction of MBC FM.
I always wonder why don’t we have such good quality stations that present fun and educational programs in a professional way.
I always here Car talk on NPR (103 FM) but it only works clearly in the north of Riyadh what makes you so “Close the Radio & get a CD” … I always ask my self what are we missing so that we can’t present such programs with a lot of Saudi youth who are not given such chances. (Gahar)

Can you read this?

I leave you with this amazing text that shows the capabilities of the human brain (Sub7an Allah)

Amazing: cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg.

    1- I think you should have checked the door to c if it opens in both directions.

    2- Sad fact. Our media (TV,RADIO and most newspapers) is behined the Gulf States and the entire world in quality.

    Thumps Up Rooob

    Sami: 7mdllah 3la alslamah … How was the NY-LA trip ;)

    Will if there is 4 million of 22 million chasing girls or boys, It’s just not fare to ignore the rest of the community.

    Even the 4 million I considered if they switch on the Radio and find some educational thing in a new style … “believe me” it will attract at lease 2 million of them, So we are making some progress here :)

    Most of this chasing cycle going around is from (Al-f’9awaah)
    Some body has to move to fill in these gaps … It’s either me or you or the Minster of transportation or any Saudi.

    In my point of view we just need to keep moving.. talking.. bloging
    ..Working with each other more and more.

    Believe me one day it will make a difference.
    Two Thumps Up SAM :)

    lol Ruba stop embarrassing us on national internet!

    Anyhow, I'm VERY angry at the translation mistake. (yeah huh!) THEY SHOULD HAVE HIRED ME! YUM a job at Baskin Robin's! Ruba, that means free icecream.. LET'S EMAIL EM!lol.

    As far as radio stations are concerned, the one thing I hold against MBC Fm is how they khaleejified it. Ok, ok, so I like khaled 3abdelra7man, doesn't mean I want him ALL THE FRICKIN TIME!
    In the meantime, Ab9emlik 3la al 3ashraaaa...woooooh I (HEART) that guy... sigh
