PF Chang’s overpriced Shrimps

Kung Pao Shrimps is one of my most favorite chinese dishes. That’s why I was a bit shocked to notice PF Chang charging KD 6.250 for it. And that’s without rice or drinks.

I think it’s a bit expensive for a place like PF Chang, which is only supposed to be an above average mall joint. I expect prices like this from standalone properly situated restaurants.

Kuwait’s goal on China in the Asian Cup games هدف الكويت على الصين الغير محسوب في كاس آسيا

Kuwait scored a goal on China, but it wasn’t counted. As you can see, the ball is clearly inside the goal.

Update: I put in 2 new pictures (the ones on top) that clearly show the ball inside the net, many thanks to QuestionQ8 for the pictures. These new pictures might stop the furious discussion going on in comments.

However, the Chinese goalkeeper hid the ball between his legs, away from the referee and the lineman’s sights. No wonder we lost, we can’t beat this uncounted goal and Musa’ad Nada’s red card.

Also, I was watching the game on Kuwait Sports channel, then I noticed that the commentator Hamad bu Hamad stopped talking or commenting during the game’s 2nd half. It now appears that he got upset from all the bad refereeing, and decided to stop commentating and left the studio.

Kuwait vs. China: Musa’ad Nada’s red card طرد مساعد ندا

Kuwait is playing vs. China in the Asian Cup games in Qatar. The Chinese are kicking, biting, and scratching left, right and center… And yet the referee keeps giving them the blind eye.

Musa’ad Nada engages in a mutual tackle with a Chinese player, and yet he gets kicked out!! Esh hal mesa5a!

 

Chinese build a 15 story hotel in just 6 days!!

Watch the chinese build an entirely new 15 story hotel in just 6 days. That’s quite amazing!

Funny freedom of Speech on China

I got these pictures by email, and I thought it was hilarious. This is how you conduct a live TV interview in China, and still be sure of what comes out of people’s mouthes.

What a great move China, it’s actually very smart of them.

Thx K.F.

China’s 100 kilometer traffic jam has just vanished

The guys at 4th Rind Rd and Some Contrast had posted about a major traffic jam in China, that was more than 100 kilometers long and lasted for days. However, it now seems that the traffic jam has just vanished. The roads have miraculously cleared and traffic is on the move again.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m sure glad I’m not in China. I know we complain and growl about the traffic jams here, but thank god they’re measured in mere minutes or a couple of hours tops. The China jam lasted more than 9 days, btw.

Anyways, this is an older post about China’s future plan to fight traffic:

The future of buses

This is the future of buses.

China has come up with this futuristic concept for over coming the traffic problem in its major cities. The bus will have a speed of 60 km\hr and will carry 1200-1400 passengers. Cars with heights of less than 2 meters (i.e. like most parking lot height restrictions) will be able to pass from underneath the buses’ midsections.

The buses are going to be powered by a mix of electricity and solar powers, and so are environmentally friendly.
