Zain WiMax Inet

*click on the pic for the full size

I guess now we can say the long awaited competition has started!! I think Zain's offer looks promising but needed to be tested. Although, they don't offer unlimited down load but the speed and pricing is good. People can argue what is the use of the speed when its limiting your download? i agree with that, but for me, i just want to download Prison Break as soon as its out and i need it to be downloaded quick!
Other providers like lightspeed, do offer unlimited package but when it comes to the service level and the reliability, they basically SUCK!!
The word in the street is that MENA telcom will offer WiMax too. Lets hope all of this is the start of cheap, highspeed, no limit inet service.

What is the Favorite Bahraini food in Ramadan?

You would imagine Bahrain’s favorite food in Ramadan would be something traditional, say Harees or Threed or something similar, BUT NO!! Its not!!
Jasmis is the Favorite food people eat in Ramadan!! Everyone I know had at one point Jasmies in Ramdan. Just go to the drive thru at any Jasmis in Ramadan and see how many cars are lined up!! Be honest did you eat Jasmis this Ramdan???

Bahrain’s strategic National Development Plan

We are hearing a lot these days about Bahrain’s strategic National development plan. Apparently the EDB has the study and it has been ready for a while now.
This strategy is supposed to solve our housing problem and set the strategy for the next 30 years. I have talked about this before (
My question is why the delay?? The strategy was developed a while back and the EDB keeps promising people it will be released soon.
Head of EDB says “Shaikh Mohammed said only 20 per cent of Bahrain's lands were structurally planned whereas the target is 100pc to facilitate the delivery of basic services to citizens.”
So that means 80% of the land is unoccupied. Now, consider what the housing minister said a few weeks ago about going vertical because we don’t have enough land.
Conflict huh??
Another point worth mentioning is that there is an important change in strategy, the government is aiming to move away from building new towns to the expansion of currently existing villages so that citizens will remain in the area they have grown up in.
Nice one!! No new town huh?? This needs a separate article, I will let the viewers judge.
