Needless to say, the view was absolutely fantastic! It'd been some time since I had been even near anything alcoholic and I got drunk pretty fast (I also blame the altitude), but it was just as well, as it's quite an expensive place!
There were 5 of us, and when we got there we found the place was full and there were no tables free. Also, they didn't have any waiters there, only waitresses.
Soooo... for the first time in my life, I flirted with a girl!
"Haaii! Umm... Do you think you could get us a table for 5 for my friends and me?"
"Oh I'm so sorry ma'am, all the tables are filled right now."
*very small pout* ( with women, I'm thinking you shouldn't overdo the pout, cos they'd get wise to you immediately)
"Aw okayyyy! But could you give me the next free table please"?
Oddly enough, it worked! :D
We got the next free table and we all celebrated with sambucca shots (which had a few coffee beans in it, for some odd reason. Can anyone tell me why?!)
I proceeded to get good and drunk and after a few drunken phone calls I was singing and swaying to the music and in extremely high spirits (pun intended).
Around 1 am, we all got hungry and decided to go to the madinat to get something to eat. Unfortunately, none of the places were open for dinner at the time. So we went to this small Lebanese joint in Karama called Al Reem, and gorged on some delicious cheese and meat manakeesh and I finally stumbled home around 2: 30am.
This is one of the pics I took when I was drunk and up there.
Ok ok, I know you can hardly see anything, but humour me. It's taken on my cell-phone camera and I was very drunk.
Another one to add to my list of “Things I’ve Lost”
My credit card.
Now how did it happen? I don’t exactly know, but if I had to guess… I’d blame it on my car.
See, when I checked my account history on the website to see if the card was stolen (this was on the 12th of June, *ahem* that was when I realized that I’d lost my card in the first place, till then I always just used my other and assumed that the one I lost was just inside my wallet somewhere) I saw that the last transaction I’d made was on the 5th of June, at ENOC, to buy petrol.
Which means, I paid for the petrol, signed, took my card and (I think I must have) put it on the passenger seat instead of inside my bag (I know I know, I shouldn't have done that) and then the card fell into the Bermuda Triangle that seems to exist somewhere in my car (I’ve lost my lip-gloss and comb to it before).
I think that’s how it happened. But of course, I can never be sure. I’ve blocked the card and they’re sending me a new one soon enough. So it should be alright I suppose.
Except I know what’s going to happen next. I'm going to get my new card, and then the old one will turn up.
