Jazz with Lotsa Pizza

Last night, the Dubai office held a special dinner party at Jazz@Pizza Express in JLT. Aside from spending different type of night with the colleagues, its primary reason was to meet Agathi Kentoni and Odette Blondiau. Both ladies had a very special meeting with Sharon and Maria about HR and finance stuff and other things (by other things I mean I am not really sure hehe) that's why they were in Dubai.

Well the entrance to the place was a bit difficult to find and the parking was a mess (good thing I didn't bring my car). The Dubai office entourage whould have been complete last night if Eldar and Maxim didn't take their annual leave hehe (for sure they are enjoying every minute of their vacation). It was a first time for the "new guy" Robby to be included in an OWME dinner event.

Basically the foods were great especially the spicy pizza but I heard that Eugeny didn't like spicy foods. Fouzan and Rajeev skipped on drinking wine while Roman was busy recording the musical performance that was going on that night. Our other visitor was Alexey (well he is not from Dubai office but we were glad that he joined). Hans was the last person to arrive but definitely the most important man that night (I saw him paid the bill).

My Israel Itinerary

My trip in Israel took a lot of planning and trust me, it was fun. During the initial phase of creating the "procedures" on how to roam around this country, I felt a lot of excitement (as always). Anyway, as you may know, there was a huge change in this itinerary. My original plan was to rent a car and as the rental companies require credit card, I can't provide one. The story was that UAE credit cards are blocked for any transactions in Israel. So instead of crying all night because of that unfortunate situation, my sister and I used the public transportation (mostly buses) and it turned out to be a lot better. We experienced the "local feel" on how to commute. Below was my itinerary and the amount was in AED. Forget about the route, use Google maps to plan your public transport and hopefully this can help you if you plan to visit Israel.
