PF Chang’s| The mystery of the missing Horses

A while ago someone posted about the missing horses outside PF chang’s Avenues .. Last weekend I had Lunch over there and I just had to ask the question .. What Happened to the Horses and why were they replaced with those trees? The manager (although am not quite sure so  lets just say he was the guy in a suit) told me that they are opening a branch in Dubai and shipped the horses over there .. It did not make sense to me at all specially that the horse is their trade mark .. I remember in the USA every branch had a big stone like horse near the entrance ..Well I told him what I’ve just said and he said that they wanted to change and liked the trees better .. so I got my answer and it was in polite terms .. don’t ask , non of your business!

while being served at the table I thought I’d give it a shot with the waiter and asked him what’s the story behind the missing horses .. he smiled .. then my friend laughed and said “ba3ad meno akeed ilbaladeyah” (translate: after who off course the municipality) .. the waiter then said to me “you got your answer” .. 

Although I already suspected that to be the reason … part of me just wished it wasn’t .. I wish that the municipality invest their time in improving our beloved country rather than continue dragging it down the drain..

    Very possible the missing horses were replaced for a certain religious belief. I personally (and willingly) had to exchange a figurine of a stallion I got my ex boss as a farewell gift to a non-living item for the same reason.

    InQuestOf: Should any religious belief be enforced into our lives by those with power, or it shall remain a personal choice?!

    • the law is not based on one’s beliefs only … but the problem in here is if I was in charge i can make my own decision coz unfortunately there’s no one to look into my decisions … thats the way the municipality works in here … If there’s a clear cut law then we will respect it regardless of our own beliefs..
