What Are You Looking At??


Today we've gone to 7awasna to get some 9awaree'7 (rockets :p)... a name given to huge shawarmas. We basically decided to eat them in the car... we didn't go through a few minutes before we realized all those around us were actually watching!!! Every passer by turned his head to look. It's the first time I experienced something like this being shown so openly. And it didn't seem awkward to them to watch people eating. One of them Indians even pointed at us while talking to his friends...Finally we decided this was too much to be watched and went to park somewhere quiet... when we realized we were followed by an Omani guy who parked right before us in order to watch. Now that was an ultimate shock to me!! Yet my friends said this was nothing... if I go to university here I'll experience many things of this sort coming from guys over here. There my usual thoughts mapassed my mind. Have they nothing better to do? Or is watching girls eating that interesting to them?...I seriously thought how shallow could a mind get?...Maybe I'm beginning to know... cuz honestly... I've never seen anything like this before...interesting

Another weird theory here in Oman:

If a guy is walking with a girl, people will look at them and think that if they beat up the guy, the girl will come with them.. rofl!!

LoL! 9awaree5 will rule the world one day.. You'll see..

Muscat is filled with such people, unfortunatly, I don't think I've met any male here who can't wait for a chance to look at girls..

Welcome to Oman TT *rolls eyes*

lol @ degoat... well if you're actually gonna pay me for that... I'll gladly accept :p...
I know I'm a bit unaware about every habit here since I don't go out much...
but Thanx for the input :) at least I'll be prepared

Solidus: funny you stayed here long and don't have that mentality eh solidus? :p...
I'm pretty sure you know these habits better than I do... it was just quite a surprise to me I had to note it down...lol
I've been physically here my dear... but right spiritually away... so I'll thank you for the welcome :p...
You might find more weird stories to come...

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL@ triple tee..hahhha..well, i see that you are experiencing what all we women experience..men will ...or should i say omani's will find ANY excuse to stare...just to keep them busy..and they like to have these imaginations..like for example....you were eating the shawara right? well, i can't really explain or tell you exactly what they are imagining in their heads but i hope you can guess..i mean..when you are eating it..it looks like(to them)that you are...ahem ahem..i can't really say...do you get what i'm saying? LOL..anyway,i know exactly how you feel..welcome to the world..omani world that is!! it's pittyfull!

TripleTee said...

Angel_Eyes... your psychological capacities are taking too much effect :os....

For those of you who still don't really feel how lame it was, you should've been there with me and tee. I'd like to point out that what those people did was bullshit and I'd love nothing more than to punch the guy who came after us as if we were some kind of criminals just because we were eating. I don't get it! Omani guys were improving and then all of a sudden they started going back to being obnoxiously "mentezqeen".
It's nice of guyz to take time away from watching stupid football matches and gossipping about their tragically common cars to drop by the parkings every now and then just to remind us that we're never going to be allowed to "eat" peacefully.
