The Camel & The Train!!

The job hunting is still going on, I have now officially received my letter of redundancy from my current employers, I have been in this job for 6 years, I have enjoyed being here and got on with my work colleagues but it is time to move on.
I know I need to start tidying up my desk soon but I just cant be bothered at the moment, there is so much stuff that needs sorting out but it can wait a bit, a lot of it will be binned anyway!

When surfing the Internet, I found this new Luxury Chocolate makers called Al Nassma from Dubai that sell their really nice and delicious looking chocolates online but this chocolate comes with a difference from any chocolate I have ever seen or ate, it is made of Camel milk and supposedly it tastes really nice, I wonder if the big London department stores will be selling it soon, I really would like to try it.


Many people complain about the heavy traffic at rush hours when going to work or school, be it driving, on a bus or a train (I do), it can put us in a bad mood and we start thinking how bad it is for us blah blah blah.... well spare a thought for those people riding on a train in Pakistan, surely our rush hours are never like that :o)

I wonder if any people actually fell off the train and if any one had noticed!!

بالنسبة لموضوع الشغل ما عندي الا ندعيلك وبالنسبة لموضوع الشكلاتة من حليب (الجمل) تفكر فيا القول اللي كان منتشر في ليبيا فترة (جمل وطاح في باسطي)اللي قاعد في عقولنا احنا بس انه سفينة الصحراء وياكل في الشوك ويصبر من غير امية وهنا في نقطة نحب نبهك ليها ،جدتي تحكيلي في حكاية قالت الطليان كانوا يجوا يجلدوا في الراعي ويقوله(احلب الجمل يا عربي)وهذي قعدت مضرب مثل ضد الطليان لان الجمل هو ذكر ولا يحلب وانما تحلب الناقة فهل في اللغة الانجليزية الجمل والناقة سواء يطلق عليهم ذات الاسم دون تفريق
وهذي شكلاتة من حليب الجمل

Nassma & Nasim

as far as I know the word Camel applies to both male & female in English although you can say Camel bull and Camel cow.
after reading your comment, I checked Al-Nassma website but sadly it is only in English!!
thanks for the Duaa.

oh my god! wow!
are you sure this pic is for real? i mean, how come all those people can hang themselves up like that!?

in portuguese, there is both female and male gender for the word camel! it would be "A camelA"for female and "O camelO" for male!

ok .. I just read about your "jobless" situation and it stuck me .. I thought that all this credit crunch bla bla is only to be heard in media but to see someone affected ... it really hit me...
I can only say that everything in this life happens for a reason.. and this could be a chance to have a better job ..I would pray that you get a new job as soon as possible .. I know it is not only about money but also about self-esteem and enjoyment...
I heard about this new chocolate ..there is a rumor that it is miles away better than any chocolate we have ever see...
the train scene was hilarious... I saw a similar situation in Cairo where you could see a men-filled moving thing .. it usually turn out to be a bus...!!!!

Salam, Anglo-Libyan
Actually the female camel is called she-camel in english; and in my experience Libyan women in the gebel gharbi region whose families own camels, have been known to use camel milk in their cakes! I've tasted some and there's the slightest taste of sourness, like if yoghurt were used to bake the cakes.Good luck with your job hunting.

I wonder! Is it possible to order nassma in the U.State :)

Yes as Um Dania said, it hits when some one u know is affected by the crisis... it just feels different, feels real, bitter, and painful. But we believe that everything happens for our best right?, we might realize it's benefit now or later, but the bottom line is that it happens for our best.
at least we got the chance to read ur posts more often :)

I wish u the best of luck.

Camela & Camelo, sound very cute, I like it :o)

hello Um Dania
thanks for wishes.
I have seen those bus thingy in Cairo, a real nightmare :o)

salam Um Salwan
she-camel, reminds me of He-man, thanks for that :o)

salam enlightened spirit
I cheched their online order page but they only have a phone number, you probably can order it but at a high price.
thanks for the wishes :o)

thanks as usual Musiclover for the links.
$34 for a 16 piece Moonstruck chocolates is quite expensive, it must be really good :o)
I have never seen the film Chocolate but I would like to.

I am sorry than you have to seek a new job. In fact, after I read an earlier post of yours where this prospect appeared first, I even didn't dare to open your blog for a while. Our papers report that many Bulgarian finance dealers who had worked for years in the London City have lost their jobs and are now returning. I wish you to find a new job soon, and even better than the old one!
