Office Chill

My office

My office is sometimes almost home to me since I spend more time here than in any other place (excluding sleeping areas). Since its very difficult to find a decent spot nearby to have quick escape that really feels like its an escape. Unfortunately we do not have a proper city center that serves people that work later that 1:30. I guess city planners thought that everyone somehow is an employee of the Ministry of Affairs (Shu2oon) and other malfunctioning ministries. I do not call Starbucks and the likes an escape, if anything its adds more distress than releif. I guess I dont like to see a copy and paste places. Anything that has quiet and unique atmoshphere with really good lunch offerings.

So I though, ok i can make my own office an escape. Add a bit of music selection and order some good lunch niblets and voila!

My Office Music Selection:

Sabah O Masa -Fairuz
King of Sorrow - Sade
Live with Me - Massive Attack
Meditation - Tom and Joy
Life in Rain - Quantic
Sueno Ideal - Agnes Jaoui (highly recommended)
Rhum and Coca Cola - Arielle Dombasle
Bang Bang - Nancy Sinatra
Legrimas Negras - Bebo Valdez, Diego Elcigala & Alicia Keys (highly recommended)

My Food Niblets:

Lobster Gyoza with ginger, chives and orange zest served with a sriracha and mirin rice vinegar sauce.

Dimsum of braised lamb shank with satay sauce in mini puff pastry parcels.

Crostini topped with a black olive and sundried tomato tapenade topped with ricotta cheese and roasted pine nuts drizzled with truffle oil.

Mixed green salad with goat cheese, fried almond slices, pan roasted balsamic pear cubes and a honey-pear vinaigrette.

Banana Mousse with cinnamon, coffee and caramel swirls

P.S. Get your hands on the awesome JBL Speaker called creature for KD 30 and turn your office into a musical experience filled with deep bass and crisp sound.
