The 1001 Inventions Exhibition

I love museums, and history, and everything related to previous civilisations from bygone eras! I have this thirst to know how people used to live in the old days, before our modern day inventions, and what impact did their surroundings have on their lives. Were they different persons, or just like us, and how? What was daily life to them, and was it enjoyable? How did they come about knowledge, and what did they do if they were sick or sad? The past is a mystery to me that I’d love to unlock, I actually wanted to be an archaeologist when I was younger, that’s how much I love history. Read more »

Just before I left for Australia I received the “rosiest” invitation to the opening of Kuwait’s newest Lebanese restaurant, Joori from Beirut. I wasn’t able to attend the opening, but I’ve watched the beauty of the restaurant via my fellow bloggers pictures of the place on instagram and I knew I wanted to try it as soon as I was back home, which I finally managed to do last weekend.

I’ve always wanted to go strawberry picking!

In the UK there are many farms where you can go and pick strawberries but somehow its been years since I’ve been to the UK during the strawberry picking season. I’ve never been myself but I’ve heard tales and seen pictures of people who did and I simply am envious! Read more »

I’m still in Ramadan preparation mode, I can’t wait till the Holy month of Ramadan is here and I usually celebrate by buying new set of tableware, trays, and tea servers. I’m always  searching for funky tableware and tea/coffee sets that are not overpriced or too fancy for daily use. Lately I’ve had a sneak peek of very different, very funky, quirky, and durable colourful acrylic trays designed for the very first time by f2o designs and I Read more »

My Newest Buys at the f2o Shop

By | June 13, 2013

On f2o’s instagram account I saw that there are new summer sketches to be printed on T-Shirts and other things so I passed by, a tad too late for many of the designs were already sold out. I did manage to get me the gorgeous Afro Dude loves Sunkist T-Shirt above and Afro Dude loves KDD ice cream sandwich in black below, I think the ice cream sandwich is becoming the classic star of summer 2013 for some reason. It is that good. Read more »

Since the good weather doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon we decided to have a good lunch outdoors. We thought long and hard of the perfect place to enjoy the weather, the atmosphere, and most importantly the food and finally drove down to Spoons Complex to have lunch at Pizzetta. We were thinking of ordering our old and usual favourites, which include the Truffle and Fontina pizzetta I’m very fond of and was craving then. Read more »

A while back I posted about an Instagram competition by the talented local Kuwaiti artist Fatima Al-Othman (post). What I didn’t post about was that I was one of the competition judges. By the end of April we did our thing, judging, and it was quite fun. I’ve never been a judge of something before! The fun didn’t stop there though, for f2o had one last surprise up her sleeve: a personalised gift for each of the judges!  Read more »
