About Me

If I’m to stand next to the nearest mirror, and ask “Mirror mirror on the wall.. who is the fairest of them all?” The creepy creature trapped inside the mirror would sigh deeply, shake its head, open its mouth to say something, decide against it, then simply lift up its hands and go “No Comment!”

Ok I’m sorry I asked! Just to elaborate more on behalf of the wretched mirror that had gone mute on me, I’m a Kuwaiti woman. An 80’s child and a 90’s teenager. I’m married and I have a job that I love in a field that I’ve wanted to be in ever since I was seven years-old. I also have several coffee machines, a big library,  a DSLR Canon that goes everywhere with me, and a passport that I want to have stamped with as many entries from around the world as possible.

I also want to state that I’m a fussy a vegetarian foodie that’s always on a diet and interested very much in photography which I may pursue professionally one day, specifically food photography. I love to read, I’m told I have a unique writing style therefore I have self-published two book that can be found in Amazon and the third book is in the making.

I’m a strong willed person and I know exactly what I’m, what I’m capable of, what I want for myself, and where I’m going in life. I live my life the way I want to live it, the way it suits me and not others. I urge you all to do the same and go with your heart. So that 20 or 30 years down the road, if Allah grants us to live until then, you wont look back sadly saying “Had I done that, would my life turned out differently?”

No time for regrets, el 3omor mashee!

Cheers!

Why all the sudden media interest? Well, it started ever since I’ve published the first volume of my humble book called “The Chronicles of Dathra: a Dowdy Girl from Kuwait”. Available from Amazon and select bookstores in Kuwait and Kinokuniya, Dubai :)

  17. […] As i see her blog, it has alot of personality, she has been around for so long and definitely made a huge fan base over the internet (and maybe some freaks in real life :P) whether it’s on her blog, Facebook or twitter. She shares alot of life experience and complaints. The name of her blog itself is enough to catch attention as i find it cute and interesting! You can read more about her here. […]

  19. Big fan says:

    I love your blog but what I really hate is when you use this weird language that is writing Arabic with English letters? Why? Why don’t you just type in Arabic? Please!

    • danderma says:

      Big fan: thank you but that weird language is used by everyone who speaks Arabic and uses the net… ill see if i can try to post more in Arabic…

      • Mary Ann says:

        Came across your blog because my mom is no longer living and I was looking to see what’s been written online about that and Mother’s Day. Nice post. And fun description of yourself in About section. I’d like the “weird language” to be translated into English so I could understand it.

        • danderma says:

          I am so sorry for your loss hon. May she rest in peace :(

          As for the weird language, I will see what you mean and try to translate it.

  20. Saju says:

    +1 to the wierd language part. Great blog! Keep going… G’luck! :)

    • danderma says:

  31. Haleemah (Cynthia Clouser) says:

    Asalamu alaikum Sister…love your bio…I happened on your blog by Googling “futoor”. One of my facebook sister’s commented on her page and showed a type of sandwich…wasn’t sure if futoor was the name of it or what..anywhooo..I stumbled on your blog and saw your recipe for futoor.

    • danderma says:

      Hi Haleema, futoor can mean two things in Arabic. Futoor can either mean breakfast or is a synonym for Iftar which is the meal used to break the fast in the evening during the holy month of Ramadan :) I’m glad you love my bio and welcome as a reader to my blog :)
