New waterproof phone from Sony

Sony Xperia z1

Waterproof phones are not a new technology. Sony and other phone makers already have a few models out for 2 years now. But the new Sony Xperia Z1 is the best one so far. Its best feature is its ability to take photos and record videos underwater, something you couldn’t do with previous models. What’s more impressive is its 21 megapixel camera, which takes great night time no-flash shots. That’s something I look for in a phone (and camera).

Sony SmartWatch2

It was announced yesterday, same day as the new Samsung’s Note3, that’s why it didn’t make noise. It’s expected to be released this month, with a price tag of $730 £56o and €650. What’s even better is if you pre-order it, you get the new Sony SmartWatch 2 for free (worth $260).

No more Jumeirah Sceirah at Wild Wadi?

 

When did this happen? I never liked the Jumeirah Scairah much, and took a few embarrassing years to finally ride it, but I’m still sad to see it go.

It was such an amazing and exhilarating ride, that holds some dear precious memories. It’s such an important part of Wild Wadi, that I don’t think the park could be the same without it.

Does anyone know what they replaced it with? I assume with something even scarier.

Weekend Fun: Marina World’s Water & Beach Sports Carnival

(Twitter, Facebook, and website)

Marina Crescent and Marina Waves are having their first Spring Fling Carnival. It’s a weekend of fun, filled with lots of entertaining sporting and water activities like: beach volley, beach football, tug of war, kiddi activities, live entertainment, competitions and prizes.

But best of all, they’ll be having an exciting water rafting competition (tomorrow from 9 am to 4 pm), which I think will be the highlight of the whole carnival.

Going Fishing

I’m going to take advantage of today’s beautiful weather and venture out to sea for some good 7adag.

Don’t pay too much attention to my pic here, I usually catch much bigger fish. Hoevere, this small fish nagged the hell out of me when scuba diving a couple of years ago… She even latched on to me when I got back on the boat. So serves her right elsara7a (I threw her back at sea btw).

Anyways, have a great weekend. Thank god the weather is ok, we can finally start to enjoy our sea and beach. Make sure you have fun today.
