Places I want to go to


The perfect restaurant for meat lovers

When I was in Riyadh last week, my friends insisted that I try out this delicious Brazilian BBQ restaurant. The place is called Il Terrazzo, and it’s in Al-Faisaliya Hotel.

The restaurant follows 300 year old Brazilian BBQ traditions, where they slow roast meats on huge skewers in an open fire oven, and then serve them right to your table where they cut the meat with large swords onto your plate. They keep on bringing you the meat till you get full and tell them to stop.

The meat variety is very huge, between 13-15 on any given night, hot to your table right from the BBQ grill. The meats we tried that night were deer, duck, chicken, veal, turkey, camel, hamour, shrimp, a couple of weirdly named meats, and a lot of other ones I can’t even pronounce.

Mind you, I only had the fish, shrimp, veal, chicken, turkey, and lamb. I wasn’t very sure that my stomach would be ok with the other fancy meats, so I stuck to what I like.

I’m not much of a meat eater, so I thought that I won’t enjoy my time there. I was wrong, I ended up having one of the best meals in Riyadh in that place. You get a huge fresh salad bar, soup, different meat sauces, and multiples of side dishes. The place was a success for me, and I would definitely want to go there again.

To all you lovers out there

This is a really great song by the Righteous Brothers. Just listen to it. I know it’s sad, but it’s also very true.

Elvis Presley sang this song too, check out his version here.

I’m really hating the new Yogi bear movie

Yogi Bear is my most favorite cartoon character of my childhood. But I have to say that I am hating this new Yogi Bear movie more and more with every new trailer.

I was so excited that the cartoon was being made into a movie, but now I’m not that sure. I don’t care that it stars Justin Timberlake or Dan Akroyd, I think the movie is just a disaster in the making.

Little tiny fact about NBK Credit cards

I bet not everyone knew that you get free travel insurance, whenever you buy a plane ticket using your NBK credit card.

You get free travel insurance whenever you buy a plane ticket with your NBK credit card, it’s that simple. The only difference is the amount of coverage you get. It just gets bigger the bigger card you use; therefore Gold, Titanium, and Black have a bigger coverage when compared to the regular classic NBK credit card. But the fact is you do get coverage, no matter what your card is.

All you need to do is use your NBK credit card to buy airline tickets. You can check NBK’s website here for more details.

Want to know which side ur gas tank is?

If you’re like me, have two cars, each made in a different country; then you would love this small tiny fact. If you ever wondered where your gas tank is, all u need to do is look at where the small arrow is pointing to.

The arrow points the way to where to gas tank is. For example in the picture above, the arrow is on the right side of the car; therefore the gas tank is on the right side. If the arrow is on the left side of the car, then the gas tank is on the left. It’s that easy.

I always get them mixed up, so it’s always good to get a look at the arrow.

I hope you enjoy this small tint fact, like I do.
