A year ago I’ve been driving in Hawalli when I saw a big old house with men wearing traditional guards costumes standing outside. As I got closer, I could make out the sign over the door, “Bait Al-Outhman Museum” it said in Arabic! I wanted to go inside but back then it was still not [...]
See-through clear bags are not new per say, they’ve come and gone on the fashion scene several times before. I remember sporting a big see-through blue on my first day of college back in 1998. These days everyone is
I’ve been unpacking some moving boxes, something that’s about a year over-due but it’s better late than never I suppose. One of the boxes I opened was labeled “books” and what was inside? My old Baby-sitters club books!

The earliest memory I have of chocolate was in some family party in the early 80′s. In the party they were distributing small bags of Macintosh, otherwise officially known as “Quality Street” and I remember myself with one of those bags. I even have a picture of
I’m a big fan of Armani Cafe and I couldn’t wait for it to open in Kuwait. The day it first opened I wanted to go right away but I was told that their menu wasn’t complete and that their pizza will be available in two week’s time so I waited for a few weeks [...]
