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’m still unboxing my moving boxes and in my process of doing so, I realised that I might very well have the entire collection of my childhood VHS tapes intact, not missing a single tape. Not quiet so surprising given that I was fiercely protective of my VHS tapes, even writing “owned by” on some [...]
I’ve been waiting quite impatiently for Iron Man 3 to arrive on the movie theaters for he’s my favorite Marvel character plus I had this feeling that the third -and I believe the last- movie was one worth watching. My instincts proved to be right, for I watched Iron Man 3 yesterday on IMAX 3D and it was awesome, [...]
The good weather season in Kuwait usually starts at the first of November and ends by the end of April. April is known to be the season of Sarrayat, which means heavy spring rain and the very last day of good weather. We’ve had some gorgeous clouds this year but I was very surprised to [...]
Dear Hala Abu Al-Hasan, aka Dudette, was kind enough to send me an invitation for the launch of Luscious Boutique’s retro collection. All black and polka dots and quirky little girly thingies and I was sold at the word “Retro”.
Someone should name 2013 the year of sequels, for Hollywood seems to finally be making up for its past years of lame movies. The movies coming up next are less of children’s fairy tale re-writes and more sequels to popular movies. The can’t-wait-for-it-to-show-again movie parade seems to be starting with the month of May, given that [...]
Ever since Véranda’s opening in March 2013 I’ve been there several times for different occasions and each and every time I’ve had a lip-smacking meal and an excellent time. The last time I was there was last Thursday with my friends. People were just out of work starting their weekend, the Avenues was filling up [...]
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!
Missing the weekend during the work days is normal. Day dreaming about the weekend every single waking hour of your work day is borderline obsession. I wonder that should be interpreted as as a sign that it’s time for a vacation? Now that’s Wednesday, my
They say if you count the numbers of your real friends using the fingers one hand, then you can consider yourself lucky. I was blessed by many friends, some close and some distant, some good and some barely make the requirements of a ‘friend’. But then I have “twin” friends that keep surprising me with [...]
A while ago I’ve been walking in the Souk district of the Avenues mall when I saw a boarded up coming soon restaurant under the name of “C-Omar”. C is a word used in Egypt for mister and if I’m not mistaken there is a black and white movie by the name of C-Omar. Therefore [...]
I love to surround myself with beautiful things and one of my favourite things are scented candles. I adore scented candles, they are whimsical, romantic, smell nice, and add a warm glow to every corner of my home. Whenever I travel I always take a travel sized candle with me to make my hotel room [...]
It’s no secret that I’m a star-struck Alphonso mango fan. If you’ve been reading my blog for the past few years you’d know that my love for them is fierce and that I celebrate its arrival every single year. If you follow me on instagram you would have already seen me
One of my favourite played MSX games in the 80′s was Athletic Land. It was kind of special to me, partly because no one else liked to play it and when I did I had it all to myself without other children nagging for their turn to play.
