Mohamed used to create fun. When we go to the mess house, Mohamed would say that he can eat more than anybody else. Mohamed would say he would eat ten apples, ten eggs, ten tomatoes, he will put all together, ten, ten, on the table and he will eat everything. So we used to have eating competition just for fun at the base in the auditorium. The winner's gift - the trophy that we gave to the winner would be a crate of canned soft drinks because there was no alcohol there. The canned soft drinks that we would give, we would contribute one each, canned soft drink, until it sums up to a crate and we would put that on the table. Any winner would take that as a trophy. So Mohamed always won. He would eat the ten apple, the ten eggs and the ten raw tomatoes. He used to create fun. That was how I knew him.
