Yesterday I completed 5 years in Kuwait and my current job! (My longest stint in 1 job till date). I have had an amazing time here with 6 new countries explored, 15 India Trips & 7 Motorcycle Rides! We set up our new home here, made so many friends and to top it all, Abhay was born here which has been the most most important milestone of our lives without doubt…Thanks to God for such amazing 5 years and hope the good times continue…Cheers to Life…Jai BoP…

Meri Christmas Weekend…

Good-Old busy weekends are back again, and boy ain’t I happy!!! Kuwait never was more fun than this weekend; I had a whale of a time, 2 days full of fun…

The mood was festive as the weekend was the Christmas Weekend, some of our teams went for their Christmas Team Lunches, we were allowed to wear Jeans to Office, and I left home also on time on Thursday, went for Jogging, had my dinner & slept early…

The “Back to School” Party

I hated my School Uniform in the Summers as it was pure white & my mother used to scold me like crazy everyday when I used to come back home for soiling it like real bad; everyday it was the same story- me coming home & listening to my mother shouting at me & I making faces as I was the most obedient kid around with my head & shoulders dropped & showing real concern on my face!!! But when I got the invite to go to a Theme Party here in Kuwait through Barry – Senior Manager Recruitment at my Organization and we had to be dressed in School Uniform, I got all excited & gave my confirmation in no time as I was sure it would be great fun to re-live my school days again. The occasion was “The Irish Ball Christmas Party” which was to be held in Hilton Resort-Kuwait & apart from the school uniform excitement there was some nice dinner & much needed intoxicants as part of the deal!!! I couldn’t have asked for more…

Itravelled to Kuwait in early February for my face-to-face Interviews & was taken to the Biggest GM Showroom owned by our company as part of my Kuwait Orientation Tour & saw all GM Cars – Chevrolet, Hummer, Cadillac & SAAB. Chevrolet was the brand which I could afford based on my expected salary here and I liked the 2010 Chevrolet Cruze and planned to pick it up if I got the offer to join. I had seen it on Indian Roads as well & it looked quite impressive, the difference between the Indian & Kuwaiti version was that the Kuwaiti one was a Left Hand Drive & a 1.8 Litre Petrol Engine whereas the Indian one is a Right Hand Drive & a 2.2 Litre Diesel Engine…

The relationship between me & the wide-open roads is a romantic one and since I have relocated to Kuwait this romance has halted for a bit and I was itching to go back on the roads albeit this time not as a rider but as a co-passenger in a Car!!! And I didn’t mind it a single bit as at times enjoying the roads while sitting is also a great experience and I did the same during my July 2009 Mt. Abu “Abu AlphaMales Trip”…
