We were invited by Ministry of Transportation to try the new public transport bus and I must say I was amazed of the new technology, routes & system.. And I was shocked of the previous buses and their systems..
Previously there was only 35 buses, by August the new buses will be 141 (3 different sizes) there was only 12 routes!! By August there will be 32 routes (includes Bahrain Airport & University of Bahrain) allowing 77% of network coverage in Bahrain, were the previous system covered only 35%… Not to forget about the:
– free wifi in every bus
– air conditioned
– digital destination displays
– Low floor easy access
– fully compliant with international accessibility and disability standards
– Priority seating area for women, families, elderly
– Ramp Access for wheelchair users
– Dual door operation fir efficient / safe passenger flow
– CCTV system on each bus
– and later this year a mobile app & smart ticketing… Ticket price 500 fils for unlimited day pass.
Later this year, a mobile app will be launched and smart ticketing
Special thanks Ministry of Transportation & Telecommunication for the exclusive event and tour, Thanks to HE Engineer Mariam Ahmed Jumaan, Under-secretary land transportation and post, Thanks to Maysoon Sabkar and Thanks to Mark Kipling

#FindSalt – Dubai

Here’s DUBAI’s latest burger joint “truck”… Located in Kite beach (Public beach) right before Burj Al Arab, it’s a food truck that sells 3 types of burgers only ( hook, cheese & Cheetos), they are not mini burgers but they are small! Each order has 2 burgers, yes so u can’t have one only! We have tried the hook & chicken Cheetos, and they are SOOOOO GOOOOOD so juicy & mouthwatering! Yes, by saying Cheetos I mean the Cheetos we but from the cold stores… It gave the burger a unique flavor, LOVED IT. They have a nice seating area, unfortunately we went at night so it’s too dark for pictures. So yeah, next time you r in Dubai make sure u visit it, but bare in mind there are no taxi there (at night I’m not sure about day time)…

Any questions ?? 😁😁😁

Masaya Lounge

I was invited to by Masaya Lounge to try out their food and dining experience, so here’s my review:

Newley opened Masaya Lounge is located in Adliya “restaurants area” next house boat Restaurant, I went on a weekday for dinner, but yet adlia is crowded almost everyday now!

I was welcomed by a friendly smile of a nice waitress.

Masaya’s menu is a galaxy tab, that show a variety of international selections, there’s almost everything for everyone

IMG_5669.JPG

After placing our orders, we got this lovely basket of bread and butter

IMG_5670.JPG

For appetizers, we have orders “Risotto Balls”… Tip: the more you dip it in the sauce the better taste it gets🙂

IMG_5671.JPG

Our main dishes were:
1- Alfredo pasta
2- grilled hamour
3- grilled salmon

My favorite was the Alfredo and the sauce of the grilled salmon🙂

Unfortunately, there wasn’t anymore space for dessert, so if your going, make sure you make some space for it🙂

Masaya Lounge also offers SHEESHA, on the second floor! I’m not a smoker so I will only go there for FOOD

Note that their staff are very friendly and their service is excellent😉
