For the past few weeks whenever the Top US Box Office segment comes on TV between programs and I watch the rating of The Call, I tell myself that this sounds like an excellent movie and I must watch it if it ever made it to Kuwait’s cinema. It finally did and I finally did [...]
Yesterday afternoon I woke up late. It was a Saturday and my husband was out running errands. I was thinking about my lazy Saturday and my breakfast when I heard my husband call out to me”Come, come see the baby cat outside!”.
Unless you’ve been under a rock in Kuwait or something, you’d have already heard about the senseless murder of the young dentist in the Avenues mall. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain and suffering it caused his family and friends. A young man enjoying an outing on the weekend only to be stabbed to death [...]
If you remember my previous post about our stray cats (post) you’d know we’d gotten attached to them and began feeding them and they played with us all the time. Last week, one of the cats, Toto the cowardy one, was unable to walk. She was
The other day I saw this taxi parked in Kuwait city with a hugest amount of bird droppings I’ve ever seen! Now who in his right mind would allow this to happen to his own car? How long have that car been standing there exactly? Shouldn’t there be a rule against these ugly dirty sights? [...]
About an hour ago I was in Kuwait city when I suddenly noticed some light pale grey smoke in
How to protect your little blog’s content from being stolen? Do you know how many time someone had borrowed my entire posts and had them displayed on their blogs WITHOUT asking?
My favorite external hard drive, one that had taken many abuse from me over the past year, fell down yesterday. It was a tiny fall, nothing major, like 30 cm from the desk to the carpeted floor. But now it won’t work.
When you work hard, for years, to create your own brand and reputation in the market. When you create something out of god given gift. When you are successful and loved, you are bound to find copycats popping
1- The Salamat: The cause of 90% of the crowding in any expo! Two women with their entourage meet in the middle of the narrow aisle and start kissing and saying hello and exchanging the gist of their past 25 years since they’ve last met while people are trying to walk around them to no [...]
Yesterday evening we were sitting outdoors in our tiny corridor/make shift tiny garden. Drinking tea and enjoying the post rain weather when a white car pulls out in front of us in the street and the driver honks to grab our attention while
Fresh out of the press comes the latest book by Jojo Moyes: Me before You. The story about Louisa who was very comfortable in her small town working as a waiter in a small cafe and dating an OK guy for 7 years when suddenly she
1- The vain driver: They cannot stop looking at themselves in the mirror. A comb will come out to fix a stray hair, a kohl pen to pop the eyes even more. Then suddenly the iPhone is whipped out and click click it goes taking pictures of them pouting or posing because their beauty at [...]
Its been a while since I did a do you remember this cartoon post! I suddenly remembered this cartoon that I’ve seen in 1992 or 1993 maybe and I googled it. In Arabic it was called Seeta El7anoon -don’t ask- but it turns out that its a Japanese anime movie called “Grave of the Fireflies”. [...]
What first pulled me towards this book is the book cover. So serene, sweet, and romantic. Actually I liked it so much I bought it more than once -I have two brand new copies in my bookcase!-. I wish I knew how to take pictures like that! I wanted my Dathra book cover to be [...]
During the National & Liberation day holiday we decided to go to the cinema and watch the highly acclaimed “Woman in Black”. The woman in black is a horror movie, period. As we settled in our seats we heard “Gaa gaa aghoo” as always. Some mindless parent had decided to bring their infant into a [...]
In case you’ve been really confused as to what a blog is, I have taken the liberty of retrieving its definition from wikipedia (link) and publishing it on my very own personal journal published on the world wide web. Therefore, dear illiterate jerk, there is absolutely nothing wrong in Danderma talking about Danderma on Danderma’s blog, all [...]
In my 31 years of living on the face of the earth, specifically in Kuwait, I’ve never ever seen something as outrageous as I’ve seen last weekend! As a matter of fact I did once, last year standing in the Qa6ar St. and Salem Al-Mubarak St. traffic light in Salmiya I saw a young man, [...]
Ever since I could remember I have seen this horrible ugly chair in Kuwaiti homes. I’ve always hated it and thought it was the ugliest thing ever. Who cares if its comfortable? Who care that it can arch its back and extend its legs? Who cares if its called a lazy boy and is intended [...]
Remember Abdul Kareem (post)? Through a pledge we sent out from out blogs we managed to find a generous and kind sponsor to save Abdul Kareem’s cancer infected leg by providing treatment for him. The amount of people who were touched by his case and wanted to help out in any way possible was overwhelming. [...]
Poor Pheobe Philo. Had she known that her Celine Boston Tote would end up as a toddlers bag for Kuwaiti babies she wouldn’t have bothered creating it. What goes through your head when you see a little baby barely past the age of two holding the micro size of one of the latest it bags [...]
Does privacy mean squat to people in Kuwait? If you know me, and I trust you enough with my phone number or any other personal details that doesn’t give you the right to act on my behalf and distribute it to other people. If anyone asks you about my phone number for any reason on [...]
I was trying to read something in Wikipedia when all of a sudden this black page comes on and won’t budge! What legislation? What happened? I thought the politic turmoil was concentrated in the Middle East? Has it reached the USA and effecting the internet?! I am already imagining life with limited internet and I [...]
