Car Accident

Well, I managed to go almost 8 years without getting into a car accident. For Qatar that’s pretty impressive to not have an accident in such a long time, I guess it was my day. I'm not hurt or anything. It was the usual, I was waiting at a red light when a car came up from behind and didn't stop in time. The back of the car is damaged somewhat but thankfully not enough that the lights aren’t working or that I'm going to need rope to keep the car together.

So I got the name, phone number, and license plate of the other driver and we agreed to meet at the police station tomorrow to file the report. *Sigh*, “how to file a police report after an accident” was one blog post I didn't want to have to do.

Qatar Car Show 2014

I'm back from vacation now but I'll post about that later, the Car Show is on right now at the Exhibition Centre at Education City so I stopped by there with some friends for a look at the latest and greatest cars (well, except for the Twizy which is just odd). Here's some pics.

I'll update about the vacation once I sort through all of the pictures.

Las Vegas

On my annual vacation to North America. This time I'm in Las Vegas, a place I haven't been too for at least 6 years.

Turns out it was both Superbowl weekend and Chinese New Year so the place was packed. I was at the MGM watching the game and the lines to place bets were massive.

Did go see Penn & Teller at the Rio, one of my favourite magician acts. They put on a great show and afterwards meet the crowds in the lobby for pictures.

As expected so far I'm losing at the tables. Hopefully the luck turns around.
