I'm not a businessman?!

I know a couple of ppl that have their on business in Oman. Some had to close down, some are in the same level when they started and some are doing a bit better. Out of curiosity I ask them to make their businesses grow, larger, bigger but they all have the same answer. The big fish will eat the small fish alive. I personally think that’s bullshit.

Our system here in Oman is not so bad. I’m sure we’ve heard of a story or two, about big Businessmen (Mr.A) eating an other big businessman (Mr.B) and he is still trying to recover from his lose. That shit happens but it happens everywhere. I say Mr.B trusted Mr.A when he was not supposed to and plus we all know that even your bro can cheat ya when you are speaking big ching ching.

Our system/the business law in Oman is not so bad!! i say it again. You can open a grade 4, grade 3, grade 2, grade 1 or even a grade excellent business if you want, depending on the business u r trying to open and the requirement needed. But there are some things you should read just to educate your self instead of just jumpin in a river that you have never heard of before. Read the law we have here in this country so you could know whats your limit.

Everyday I wonder, why aren’t we like Dubai?! Why don’t we open up our own businesses instead of depending on a fixed monthly salary and complain its too little?!
Questions cloud my head with why!!!

Businessmen here don’t believe in investing in the same country. They go outside as it’s a quicker way to make money. We don’t have too many tourists and the locals we have aren’t enough to keep this business runnin’. Or maybe we just have a fucked up mentality and business is just not our thing.

First Aid

I went for a First Aid/ Basic Life Support course in OTI (Madinat Al A3lam). My boss came to me in a sudden and was like you start your course tomorrow and its for 3 days. The course was to help ppl have the needed skills and knowledge to perform emergency first aid support in the first few minutes after a life-threatening incident occurs. Sadly the course I took was only focusing on adults and not babies (below 1year old) and kids (of +1 year old – 9 years old).

It covered good theoretical & practical elements in it, how to do the Breath Rescue, CPR and positioning the victim in the recovery position. It also explains the right way to support internal and external injuries + some1 in shock and a lot of other stuff.

After taking this course i really believe that everyone should actually take this course or at least should have one or two members of the house take this course. I’ve seen lots of accidents, being to lots of trips and helped lots of injured ppl. I was shocked to know everything I did before that was wrong. Wither it was a friend that got injured playing football, someone in shock after a small car accident or someone that fell of the steps, what I did to help him/her was wrong but I’m glad to know that I now know what to do the next time such things happen.

The course only costs 65 R.O for every indaviual which I think is a pretty reasonable price. The course was from 8-4 with a one hour break for three days, and now I’m a certified First Aid madri shoo esamuna.

In early 1900s a scientist defined shock as “a state when a body dies temporary”. Now they say that when the body or human is in shock, the blood cells in a humans body dies due to lack of oxygen therefore the mind sends the wrong signal/commands to the body. We usually give water to ppl in shock thinking it will cool them down, by doing that we might damage the persons body since we don’t know where the water will end up.

The course covered the below illnesses:

· Anaphylaxis

· Animal bites

· Black eye

· Blisters

· Bruise

· Burns

· Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

· Chemical burns

· Chemical splash in the eye

· Chest pain

· Choking

· Foreign object in the nose

· Foreign object in the skin

· Foreign object inhaled

· Foreign object swallowed

· Fractures (broken bones)

· Frostbite

· Gastroenteritis

· Head pain

· Head trauma

· Heart attack

· Heat cramps

· Heat exhaustion

· Heatstroke

· Human bites

· Hypothermia

· Insect bites and stings

· Motion sickness

· Nosebleeds

· Puncture wounds

· Severe bleeding

· Shock

· Spider bites

· Spinal injury

· Sprain

· Stroke

Camping in Oman

Before I say anything bout camping let me advertise a new camping trip happening this weekend. {Discover the beauty of Oman, convoy will move from Muscat to Quriat, Ras Al Had, Ras Al Jinz to sharqia Sand Dunes and finally stop at Bidia Waheba Sands. All include food accommodation only for 35 RO.}

Now this is one trip I would love to go to. My best trips that I’ve been to was in Ras Ruwais, as soon as we get there a rain storm had hit us just as we were fixing up our tent. It took about 11-15 ppl to hold on to the tent as it was drifting away from us. Both genders boy and girl suffered and not only the guys :P hint ladies = u gotta get ur ass dirty too when u out in the desert.

One of my favourite ones was when I went to Ras Medraka, we caught lots of fish over there but the best part was the night before, we camped over there before we started the tough part of the journey, digging the car every after 10 minutes, we got stuck like it was no mans business.
Other places I camped in were Wahiba Sands – I’ve been there many times and planning to go there again some time soon. Ras Al Had, Jabal Shams – it was in May but the temp was 14C. Jabal Shams a couple of times, Wadi Shab, Wadi bani Khalid, Snack Gorge , etc…

One pic that im gonna post is a pic of us fighting over the last bar of chocolate. We didn’t carry enough with us. The best way of camping I think is camping in the middle of no where. I hate it when someone suggests we go camp in one of the resorts hnak. Why camp if that’s the case?! We are better off going to the farm n sleep there.

Most ppl in Oman have second thoughts when it comes to camping worried that they might need to use the bathroom or somoething. PPL yes, you will have to suffer for 24-48 hours. Or maybe you can dig a hole and dump your master piece there. We do carry water to clean your self up. But trust me the last thing you think off is doing number ONE or number TWO when you are out there. The whole atmosphere and everything is different when you are there.

Bikes & US!!!

After cruising around town with my cousins bike, I have now decided to get my on bike. The new Honda Fireblade 1000CC beast. But ever since I mentioned that, have been on my case trying to stop me from buying the beast

Recently ppl have been in lots of accidents, most bikers blame the car drivers since we have no respect to ppl on bikes here in this part of the world. I myself have noticed how ppl seem to think its kool or its okay to stick near a bike rider like glue, maybe that will boost him up and he will show us what's he working with. PPL that shit is scary and when you are on a bike, a small reaction can lead to be a very bad accident.

When you get your license here, the ROP never mention anything about riders in the street, and whats the safest way to drive around them. I remember when I got my driving license, i didn't even have anyone explaining to me the famous 2 second rule of safe driving.

In the states you get penalties from careless driving and you have to go through driving lessons depending on how careless you were. I think that would be really useful in this part of the world.
