I was flipping through my 2010 pocket diary when i saw the above page… apparently the Identity Card in Arabic is Raqam 7afethat il Nofoos… which absolutely makes no sense! 7afethat il nofoos 3ad!!!! Laish!!! So far the biggest badliya i have every seen!
As I escaped from my dentist last week, I was feeling so down I needed a nostalgic pick me up. Wandering in Salmiya, I suddenly remembered a dusty childhood memory with a lingering flavor, took a wrong turn, and finally I was there for my nostalgic Read more »
Fi Amreka wa Oroba wal dowal il mota7athera… there is an invention called a Self Service Kiosk for all your picture printing needs. Simply take your pictures in a flash or a cd, or even via your phone by bluetooth, and voila! 5 minutes later you can have an array of merchandise with your pictures on them… you see them, you edit them, you crop them, you do whatever you want with them and then you pay and leave. Private, Secure, Good Printing Quality, Instantly Fast, Hussle Free, Minimal Interaction with nosy people, and Well Priced!!!
I want to know why is it that 20 years after it’s release in the modern world, it still doesn’t exist in Kuwait? I want to use one now! Do i have to take a flight into Dubai to use the next available one for a few pictures?
Have you ever seen one around?!
According to our laundry service… the correct English translation for the Arabic word “Konya” is… Lakab!
Reminds me of Saif El 3arab’s Play with the Konya Part!
My Alphonso… My time Capsule… My fast track lane to my 80′s childhood… is BACK!
Last year i ate one only. This year insha2 Allah i might go on a one month Alfonso Mango diet: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner! Might spend sometime on my MSX Emulators while i am at
How do you eat yours? I eat mine like this
I spotted those cans in the refrigerator section of the Co-Op, apparently a new product by Nescafe: Nescafe Original, Nescafe Latte, and Nescafe Mocha! I was happy for one moment… i chose the one i wanted to try (Nescafe Original) then thought “why not take a look at the ingredients?” and to my surprise i found “Hydrogenated Palm Oil” in the list :S
I don’t know about you… but i am not willing to eat/drink anything with Hydrogenated oil in it. The modern world do not use that anymore… Nestle in the UK doesn’t use it so why should Nestle Middle East?! Until the day they change that i am not trying it. If you want to try it you are more than welcome of course it’s a free country after all
Are you going to a zwara or a gathering this weekend?! You want to take something with you? I have got just the thing!
I got a comment from the owner of Butterfly Sweets who wanted to send me a box of their product and have me try them and post about them. I agreed to do so under one condition: i will Read more »
I noticed that in some places when i see Nowwair i see this new orange
warda right next to it… how Pretty!!! Chanzain all new flowers are as big and colorful as this one
I found out that there is a new Kit Kat Chunky flavor: With Hazelnut!
It has something like Hazelnut Cream inside… i am not a fan of Kit Kat Chunky but this one was fine… kinda like Kinder Bueno… worth trying out…
Available wherever you see the Kakao London Sign
I was in the Co-op the other day when i passed by a box of Macintosh… being a fan i had to stop and look at it longingly before moving on… when i noticed that the box indicates that Read more »
I saw this very strange sign… another sign where the English is comprehendible while the Arabic is … well weird! Do you think there are some letters missing to make the word smch or does it actually mean something?! I am completely lost in Translation!
The other day i saw a Fico Cardboard box of some potato chips and on the box there is a picture of Floona Bufak! I have not seen this bufak in AGES! Maybe since 1992! When we were kids in the 80′s we loved bufak a lot and tons of girls loved floona -i hated her wayed de3la- so Flona bufak was very popular! I think it’s discontinued now… Who eats bufak anymore now adays?! The things we used to eat… UGH!
Do you remember this bufak?!
Since the start of my teeth problems i have not been eating much… mushy food mostly. I was cleaning out my blackberry pictures when i found some shots from one of my favorite restaurants in the UK: Zizzi! Since i miss London and i am very hungry i thought i would share it with you here…
Whenever i visit the UK i must go Read more »
I went to Taste of Kuwait yesterday. If you are not familiar with the concept yet, it is an event where you can order from one menu that belongs to several local restaurants and dine in stylish setting while you watch people around you. Some of of the proceeds go to the Kuwait Thalassemia Society which Read more »
The last time i was in Dubai i found a box set of CD’s for the complete Lady Lady series… and for most of my favorite 80′s popular cartoons! The quality was amazing too! I don’t know why we are not blessed by selling those in Q8… instead of selling perfumes in Virgin Mega Store!
How many of you, in 1992, cried over Lynne being tortured by her evil step mother? I still do!
The movie will be out June 30th! Can’t Wait!!!!
I saw this in Jabriya Co-Op and couldn’t believe my eyes! Bobby Veal! Min sejkom?! Why Bobby veal y3ni? I tried to find one good reason for the word Bobby bel mawthoo3 ma legayt, all while remembering “Haza Laham Chalb” from Darb Al-Zalaq!
Would you care for some “Bobby Veal”?!!
Underneath the Shuwaikh Port Bridge, there is some construction work going on AND this very stupid sign…
In English Go Slow ok comprehendible… in Arabic Serr Khafif means NOTHING! Y3ni in an Arabian country having a road sign that makes sense in English but not in Arabic is very fashla!
Why is it so hard to have a correct road sign? Just say قد ببطء or سر ببطء!!!! Min sjkom! Hmph!
Chef Daniel Angerer from NYC’s Klee Brasseries came up with the idea of using his breast-feeding wife’s milk to make cheese! Apparently readers have liked the concept so much they wanted to try it and BAM a Human Milk Cheese Canapé with Figs and Pepper are available on the Menu!!!
Would you try it?! Did you every try your mothers breast milk as a grown up? My cousin did… i would rather fast for eternity to be frank but some people do not mind at all… it reminds me of the Friends Episode with Carol’s breast milk! Thank god becoming siblings via breastfeeding stops at age 2…
Happy Hippo… or as i once heard them in a European TV ad … 2appy 2ippo… is one of my fav. chocolates i used to bring them home with me whenever i travel but now i found them being sold BELOW my workplace!!!! I love the chocolate ones more… you should try them if you haven’t … i am always 2appy when i see those little fellows!
Suddenly overnight, wherever i go, i see the freaky orange buttefly looking at me, flying and fluttering it’s nasty wings at me, challenging me…
Yesterday as i got out of work, the weather was nice, i almost but ran to my car because of those butterflies flying around all around! I swear they were conspiring against me… i get in my car and i suffocate, i cannot open the AC since it’s too cold, and i cannot open the window to enjoy whats left of the good weather because those friggin butterflies are flying EVERYWHERE like dandruff on the shoulder of a jet black jacket!!!
The bad thing is, the birds seem to have taken prozac just to challenge the butterflies in their mania! You are birds not butteflies you cannot run a race in the streets! Go to a field full of flowers or something! Leave us in Peace!
One of those butterflies was waiting for me as i got out of my house today! Eshtabeeen! I almost went back inside because it just won’t stop fluttering infornt of the door!
I wish there was a giant fleet to take the ALL DOWN! When do these die?!
and yes i am afraid of any living animal, be it small or large…
I am very very sorry… i should have bought the kit above when i saw it in Sainsburys the day your filling fell out… i should have filled you and gone to the dentist immediately when i was back to Q8… i should have taken better care of you, conquered my fear and took you to be mended and fixed.
Now you are gone, removed, and in your place an ugly wound that is stitched up and a a gaping hole. Because of that, i will have to wear braces while approaching middle age for the SECOND time in my life. I don’t know how to feel, like an overgrown teenager or a youngish old lady…
Do you know any orthodontist in Q8 that is worth visiting? i mean a real no-nonsense cut throat cutting edge ace one? Please help!
P.S. Why don’t they sell similar emergency kits in Q8?
P.S.2 Eshda3wa if ur reading this, this is a really good time for a comeback y3ni!
