It’s midnight. It has been raining since 6 pm today and the temperature has dropped to 15 C.
Earlier, at around 10 pm, Masood asked me whether I wanted to take a walk and have lamb chops for dinner from a nearby restaurant. We went downstairs with an umbrella in hand and started to walk. Few minutes later, the rain got heavier so we hailed a cab and got to the restaurant, The Americana Chicken Tikka, which was full with people of all ages. There was even a birthday party going on.
Each plate comes with one piece poori and costs 24 dirhams, excluding drinks. Both the lamb chops and chicken tikka were well-marinated and tasted really good. The order takes around 20 minutes to be served.
We walked on our way home.
The Shoe Rack
In other news, take a look at the shoe rack in the prayer hall at our office building. Slippers are provided for those who want to remove their socks and shoes to perform ablution. Notice how people didn’t return the slippers in the rack after using them.
Last weekend, I wrote in Weekend Review about our restroom at work and how the lady who cleans it had filled the vases, with the artificial flowers, with water. When I asked her, she told me that the water makes the fake flowers look real. Two days later, she put some real small bamboo plants in those same vases. “There you go,” she told me the other day with a smile, “there’s a valid reason to put water in there now.”
And finally …
I’m done with the huge pile of laundry. Yay, mission accomplished!
Have a great, funfilled weekend, everyone!
