The holy month of Ramadan is almost here and for the past three or four years we’ve gotten used to receiving a big box chockfull of Ramadan supplies from Mishref Co-op where my husband has an account. I arrived home yesterday to a big fat colourful box tied with a pink ribbon, so heavy you couldn’t lift it on your own. At first I thought someone had sent me a gift box but looking closely I realised it had the Mishref Co-op logo on it! Never before have I seen a local Co-op distribute such a beautiful and well thought of gift before! Read more »

Picture of the Week: The Vimto

By | July 16, 2012

Insha2 Allah this time next week, it will be Ramadan, and we would all be thirsty and many many of us will be dreaming of drinking an icy cold glass of Vimto. I am not a Vimto addict like my fellow Kuwaitis, I drink it bel sena 7sena, but my husband is a big Vimto fan and every year he brings home two bottles to drink during Ramadan and we make one pitcher and it wouldn’t taste good and we would let it gather dust on the kitchen counter.

Yes, I confess, I don’t know how to make a good glass -or pitcher- of Vimto. Are you a Vimto fan? Do you love Vimto in Ramadan only or all year round? and would you please teach me how to make Vimto? Much obliged!

My husband has an account in Mishref Co-op and today he went and picked up their Annual Ramadan Gift.

Every year the gift is not all that, nothing noticeable or worth getting. I can’t even remember them to be frank. This year however the gift was one big huge box! Filled with: 4 Bottles of Vimto, 2 Bottles of Orange Nesquick, 2 bags of 67een, 1 bag yreesh, 1 bag harees, 11 bags of different and essential spices, Kleenex Boxes, Aluminum Foil, boxes of Clear Foil thing, and hand soap!

Shensawe fehom el7een? Ele yabe minhom shay 7yah 3ndena! Kil hathee Hadiya?
