"Riyadh Vacation" :p Thursday

*Pink - So What


I arrived at King Khalid airport in Riyadh at 7:15 pm on Wed, got to my friend's (my BFF) apartment at around 8:15 pm. BFF came from work very late, at around 11 pm. Me and BFF slept very late that night because as my sisters slept, we kept talking in the dark till 3 am. Next day (Thursday), BFF had to work again till 5 pm.
I woke up at noon, and I called my friend M who came to Riyadh on a recreational trip (!) organized by the recreation guy at work for the weekend, and we went out for lunch.

We ate at a chinese Restaurant called "Diamond" in Localized shopping mall; I just loved the place and I enjoyed the meal. We ordered the "Diamond shampagne" just for fun, which is like a huge pipe that stands vertically on your table, with a faucet (LOL!!) from which the waiter kept our glasses full! I think it contained something like 2 liters of Saudi shampagne, and we left more or less a third of a liter.
I loved Diamond, and I always ignored chopsticks and ate with knife and fork until today! :p waiter said I was doing it right :)



Appetizers


Main Dishes


 Plain rice! I needed this because the food was spicy, and it cooled things down :)


The Diamond Champage tower!!


This is one of the other tables in Diamond, it's so dark with a spot of light on the center of the table, cool!

 
That's me chopsticking! Awful pic, was taking it with my other hand (doesn't this picture kinda makes you feel that I had nothing better to do? *which was true* LOL)

Then we spent the whole day shopping, we visited three different shopping malls, and we didn't buy much. Just a few pieces all together. We also ran into recreation guy and his group from work in one of the malls, recreation guy seemed thrilled to see me; we were in a five days course last week together and I think he feels like he "knows me" now :p whatever..

Later, BFF joined us and we went to dinner in Copper Chandni, which wasn't a big deal because all Indian restaurants seem to serve the same foods with slightly different levels of spiciness.
One of the waiters had a crush on BFF and he almost wanted to sit with us! He kept coming and going and constantly asking if we "needed anything" :p.. He looked anxious when he brought in the bill, and he was shaking when I paid the bill and he brought my CC back; he just stood there as me and the girls were talking.. Just looking at us as though he was supposed to be there. I asked him if he needed anything and he made some incomprehensible sounds and he pointed at BFF. It was so rediculous how many "get lost, go out, go away" hints we gave him, but he just stood there staring at BFF looking anxious!! We really tried to hold it in until he left and as soon as that happened, we cracked up! Stomach hurt so much!! :D We think he was waiting for her number or something! WTF!!??



Samosa was my favorite dish in Copper Chandni, I like Indian food, but I guess I just got bored!!

Later, M ordered us all to have dessert in Chilli's because she was craving that nutty, overly sweet pie thing dessert that I don't like and I honestly forgot it's name; I, on the other hand, was and will always be (I think) loyal to the good old MoLteN CaKe! M said she doesn't like it!! Who doesn't like Chilli's MC!! Come on! :/
Surprisingly, Khobar Chilli's make a bigger cake (and more sauce) than Riyadh's, that is good news for me ;)

We commuted by taxis, and I notice that I started to know my way around *bows as you clap*.. And it was hilarious how each time we wanted to go somewhere, we'd stop a taxi and try to figure out how to stuff the five of us in one cab, we were very creative I'm telling ya! But we did use two taxis twice!
There isn't much to do in Riyadh other than shopping and dining really, the girls want to go play on Star City tomorrow. We'll see...

Hmmm, yes, I think it was a good idea coming to Riyadh, it definitely took my mind off of you-know-what, and I feel good hanging with friends.
Next trip on the agenda: ... hmmm, better not jinx it by talking about it :p

Mad Art
I join your dad I LOVE it in caps as well! :)
We didn't get a chance to visit Miraj or have breakfast at Laveda due to some much expected and unwanted last day drama that you will read about in my next post :D
But thanks for the recommendations! Next time I visit Riyadh I will defintely try those :)
~I'm starting to hate Indian food :s

moosquestions
It is so! :)
Well, I wouldn't recommend it as a vacation, I'd recommended as a huge shopping mall for people who hate humdity.. LOL!
~Next trip, after I book the tickets we can talk!!

nosa
I did :)
Babe! Don't feel bad, I never been to Bahrain! LOL!!

Jundi
Hmmm we got the plain SR 6 rice :D .. no cardamom (thnx for the translation!), it was a good tongue reliever.. spicy food!
~Next time, choose rice wisely :D

C
mmmMMmmm your last line is unbelievably tempting :o!! I am already planning the next trip, and inshallah redoing London next year hehe.. ;)

Jundi said...
