Yesterday was my first day back in Dubai. I didn’t get to talk to the one person that usually always wishes me a safe flight home so I was kinda bummed when my plane took off, but I soon had a sweet old man sit next to me and sleep on my shoulder so that kinda made up for it :P. This time I didn’t fly with Royal Jordanian as I usually do, I chose Emirates flight instead. The service was better, the plane was better, the food was better (yes, you get served food even if it’s Ramadan) and best of all the in-flight entertainment was a LOT better. I watched “The Soloist” for Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. and trust me it was one hell of a good movie, go see it!
I arrived at 3 pm at the lovely Dubai airport and apparently the guys re-decorated the whole place. It was stunningly amazing! I don’t have pictures because I couldn’t be bothered to take any, [google it maybe you’ll find something] but it’s a hundred times better than how it used to be.
The best thing about going back to Dubai is seeing my family. Nothing beats a good vacation with your family. Of course the arguing and the fighting starts the second we get in the car when mom asks me why I’m dressed like crap with a yellow t-shirt that says “Chagfeh”, or why my beard is too long or why my hair isn’t fixed. I just give her “the stare >_>” and continue fighting in the back seat with my 2 brothers. I get home, have lunch and me and my brother immediately battle it out on PS3 with “Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe”. He kicks my ass 12 times in a row then we go out for foosball, our prime ritual.
Then my mom drags me to the mall to buy clothes for next semester [I’m going to be starting clinical practice at the hospital so I have to dress up in formal clothes]. “If you don’t buy clothes now bi a5er el ijaze ma bidal fi sizes ya bagara!” says mom as she notices my ever-expanding waist-line [waa3]. Here’s the cool thing about having two brothers: you can go out shopping with mom and still manage to have fun and laugh your ass off. Yeah, she annoyed the hell out of me by making me try on 15 pairs of pants, but we made enough fun of people around us to balance it out, haha! [If anyone has seen the movie Superbad, the part at the end when Jonah Hill is buying pants for college and he’s doing “College Poses” with really tight pants. I played out that same role in front of the saleswoman and a young boy trying on pants and they both were like 😐 as my brothers and mom laughed their asses off, hahah!] We ended the night with some billiards and then some mouth-watering Haggen-Dazs ice-cream [Orgasms].
It’s good to be back! I don’t miss Amman yet but I’m sure in a few days I will. I’m trying to get the most out of my vacation and when that starts happening I’ll blog about it, but till then it’s just going to be boring posts of how my day went. Toodles.
