Annoying auto-play videos

On January 27, 2015 in Anything Goes

I honestly hate auto-playing videos on Facebook, and I’m sure many of you do too. With the most recent update of Google Chrome, it’s more messed up, so now you get stutters on every auto-playing video. Here’s a quick tip on how to stop this annoyance.

I’ve come across a number of people who come to the UAE for job hunting… usually it is their first time round and they expect too much, or perhaps they are desperate and want to get in somewhere.

One thing is for sure, the market currently does have the capacity to take in more people but it doesn’t stay the same all the time. It’s always useful to stay aware of what’s going on and to understand if you are what the market is looking for.

Yesterday my father and I were visiting Al Ghail, a freezone industrial area of Dhaid City. This is an industrial freezone at the start of Ras Al Khaimah. Needed some product samples so we traveled across these cities. Apparently the directions weren’t clear enough, and despite calling the person multiple times, till the end we didn’t get a clear landmark we could refer to.

Let’s Take A Shortcut

On December 26, 2014 in Anything Goes

I’ve been saying this for quite some time but over the years the realization has been far stronger than ever. Especially since I moved out of the country, and when I return I cannot help but feel it all around me, making me feel that I’m doing something wrong if I’m not taking a shortcut.

Recently I’ve been trying a lot of things. Some that I previously wouldn’t have bothered with, now I am and it does feel different.

The first of them is to go out more. Feels liberating sometimes. That includes going out for a movie, be it alone or with anyone. But you have to go out. Then again that the summer is here, probably not that much. But being among people is good.

Kicking off 2014

Haven’t written in quite some time, so thought it might be a good idea just to type in some thoughts.

Been in Dubai now for 5 months, the city rocks I tell you! Let not anyone tell you or deter you from visiting it, the opinions will vary with every single person, their perspectives on life and of course what they are here for.

As for me, I am glad to have landed an opportunity within the first month of being here, working full time since then as a Project Head for a really dynamic digital and communications agency in Dubai. Really love the team.

Islamabad ka Sikandar

On August 18, 2013 in Reviews

You’ve all probably seen the entire joke of the year lasting a good 5 hours on the streets of Islamabad, Pakistan, streamed right to your tellies. A few of my friends even commented that probably cinema crowds may have reduced thanks to the live action movie on the streets.

Here’s my take on the entire scenario, and I’ll be brutal about the entire scenario since this is how I see it.

The mind of each man…

The mind of each man is a Savage Garden

– Anne Rice (The Vampire Chronicles)

I’ve constantly found the need for people to be taught customer servicing. Its quite strange that despite us asking of others treating us properly, we ourselves tend to outdo how others treat us. This is quite disturbing.
