Happy 2007 January 5, 2007

Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Bahrain, Culture.

Last day in Bahrain today. It has been really nice being here and yeeeaaas my mind is blocked and no other word than “nice” can exit. Went to the Autumn Fair yesterday. Packed with stalls selling spices, artisanat, clothes, food and plenty of other goods. Bought a bit of this and that. Just had to get some Iranian saffron since I find it to be the best. Why is it called the Autumn Fair anyway? Here’s me thinking it is winter. If this is not the winter then when is it?

We went for a visit to the souk the other day. Now, I know what it would be like to visit Bangladesh or India. It will be packed with Indians and Bangladeshis. I always wanted to go to India but I am not sure I could handle these crowds. I would have to take 23 valiums before I land and every time I leave the hotelroom. Don’t think it would work in the long run. Anyway, the visit was interesting but I can’t say I found too many things I wanted to buy. Checked out some of the Baharani jewlery with tiny pearls and found them to be really beautiful.

Had dinner at the Lebanese restaurant Zahle in Gulf Hotel last week. They have a show with some musicians, singers and a dancer. I had never seen a oriental dancer live before and was looking forward to it. Now this lady, was nothing but downright scary. I really can’t understand what kind of dancing this was. Sometimes it seems she was jogging and some other moves were nothing but spastic. Seems some people think having a cleavage deeper than the Grand Canyon is enough to be a dancer. Here’s me wanting to see a more hmm sensual dancer, ya hotter even. Not cus of her looks or what she is wearing but cus of how she moves. This one reminded me of Chuckie the Doll. Grrr and buhuh for me.

Saw “Borat” the other day and aaah what can I say, as I expected both tasteless and hilarious. The wrestling scene with Borat and his partner, both naked, in the hotel is like ooooh so disgusting and funny you don’t know whether to laugh, look away or simply cry.

The closer I get to my due date the more I feel like my mind and body has been hijacked by a strange alien force. I have no control over anything these days it seems. Strange thoughts, pain, odd pains and I don’t know what. Eeenyway hamdulilla all is well I guess and it’s just getting closer and closer to the end.
