Rewind

In case you're one of the 2 fans of this blog who actually knew of its existence more than a week ago, I remind you of this post from January: Good news for the no-life freaks , in which I wrote: "I wonder if kids are gonna steal from their parents to buy Hayyak cards". No, it hasn't happened in Oman yet, but check this out:
A seven-year-old Jordanian boy stole his father's hard-earned salary to buy prepaid phone cards to vote for his favourite female candidate on a TV reality show, Petra news agency reported. Jamal was so enamoured by Algerian candidate Salma al-Ghazali, who appears on the Star Academy reality show on Lebanon's LBCI satellite channel, that he decided to steal his father's salary to pay for his declaration of love. (source: Jordan Times via Natasha Tynes)
Of course this can never happen in Oman. For one thing, no one here actually gets their salary in cash. Everyone has their's assigned to the bank since they have loans and they only get a fraction of it left.

Thats really sad. I think arabs have the crappiest shows ever, and I really cant believe people watch and are obssesed by the shows, it all just shows how shallow most arabs really are.. i mean come on, instead of spending hours watching one of those crappy shows they could be like blogging full time! :p

who would want to watch people, who think they are talented, sing? blakh!!

Do I detect pessimism?

Do I detect pessimism to the loan scams? Shame on you Muscati, don’t you know that it’s the Omani way our source of bread and butter. We ask for a huge loan then when we cant pay for it we ask for an even bigger loan. I don’t see why people should purchase things when they simply do not have the finance for it.

Life goes on. (Another blog idea)
