It's a sad day for fast food lovers everywhere, when the amount of time it takes you to get your food is substantially longer than the time it takes people who ordered 'normal-speed' food.
I went into the Dana Mall food court today with three people. I was hungry, and made a quick decision; walked over to Burger King, ordered my meal, paid, and waited. The other three took a little longer to decide, but as they did, the first went over to Isfahan (Iranian food), the second to Quiznos, and the third to Yum Yum Tree (to order some Japanese dish thingy). Now, I must add that food ordered in each of the above three places requires a reasonable amount of cooking time; Isfahan was a plate of rice with meat, Quiznos make your sandwich on the spot then 'oven-toast' it, and YumYum Tree cook the Teryaki plates right infront of your eyes. Wow.
So we all sat down on a table as we waited for our food, and one by one each restaurant called to pick up their dish, except for me. As the third person sat down ready to eat, I looked over at Burger King. Where the hell is my food? I walked over and asked them if it's ready, to which the lady there rudely replied, "No, you wait No?"
I would understand if they were busy, but there was only one person infront of me who had ordered a coke, and I doubt that would delay my order by much. Anyhoo; few minutes later, my food was ready, and I sat down as the others had already begun and were half way through their meals.
I think this means that every single benefit of 'fast-food' has been killed off. Even being a pile of totally unhealthy junk, it was convenient and quick. Nope, no more. I signal today, the day fast-food died.
Never mind that; If you haven't already checked it out, take a look at BahrainTalent; it's officially been launched as of today with the first artist, Ed Buzzerk, being featured. On another note, I managed to get together with one other person yesterday and get the movie filmed and over and done with; sure, we were supposed to be a total of six, but like I previously said, getting a few people in the same place at the same time is sort of impossible here. Anyway, should be done with the editing tonight hopefully, and will be posting it up. Stay Tuned!
