I was invited by His & Hers to attend the First Social Media Day in Kuwait! An event organized by them, Q8 Stig & Omarker. This day is celebrated world wide & this is the first gathering of bloggers to acknowledge this day.
It was very coyz and limited to some bloggers. No media was there nor sponsors & that’s how the organizers wanted it to be! It was supposed to start at 2pm but people as always get late therefore it was delayed til 2:40pm! But the wait was worth it because we enjoyed the talk of some bloggers!
The event is meant to gather bloggers from the country so we can socialize and get to know each others! I hardly pronounced my name revealing my name! I’m no longer anonymous to some bloggers :P
Husband attended this event with me to show me his support (he knows about the blog ;)) but he got pissed off when it got delayed :P but anyways, we enjoyed the event & thanx to Laduree for their sweet gesture giving each individual a bag that contains a box of macaroons :D
Thanx for His&Hers, Q8Stig & Omarker for this lovely event :)
Take a look at Q8Stig :)
and finally His :)
The Three Musketeers :D

Thanks to the lovely lady Danderma again for this lovely list (June\’s Top 100 Blogs In Kuwait According to Alexa) and her amazing effort to let us know about it.
My blog has moved 9 points up woohooo, i’m really happy for this progress :D
Here’s the list:
I can never ever ever express my addiction to this lady & her amazing way of writing. Her romance novels get through your heart and touch its weakest point where you feel agony & passion at the same time.
Ella Barron a single mom, running a business in her house trying to provide for her autistic kid. Mr. Rainwater comes along and turns her life up side down. Also the town’s people are affected by Mr. Rainwater.
Too bad it has a very sad ending but very realistic.
Which one do you prefer buying?! I like both, Hardcover for it’s shape and feeling, it makes you reading a real book but it’s too heavy to carry with you everyday! As for paperback, it can very light to carry wherever you go!
Hardcover or Paperback and why?!
Believe it or not, I started reading this book this morning at work around 10 am. and finished reading it just now around 3:30 pm! This is a record for me, I’ve never finished a book in 5hrs & 30 minutes! I just couldn’t stop reading & the only break I had was only a couple of minutes when I had to go pray noon prayer.
We all know Steve Irwin (If you don’t then you’re now from our age)! We all lived watching his crazy adventures catching crocodiles & snakes, saving them from hunters & keeping them safe either ins his Zoo located in Australia and run by him and his American wife or send them smwhere safe.
We all felt very sad and upset by the news of his death when he was diving! and how it affected his family deeply. I got this book written by his wife Terri Irwin once it was published, probably back in 2007 or 2008 but I only managed to read it in 2011 (I just have so many books).
*sigh* It’s written with passion & love, you can feel Terri’s love for Steve from the way she’s talking about him & my eyes teared when I reached the last chapter talking about his death :( so sad!
If you remember Steve Irwin then you must read this book & what a great man he was. May you rest in peace.
Everybody made a big fuzz out of this restaurant that I was dying to visit and try their food as many have recommended but to my surprise it was an average restaurant and food was regular, nothing WOW about it! I wanted to enjoy eating their food so I picked the day I was fasting! Husband asked me where do you wanna eat Fu6oor & i told him Cafe Bazza!
The place & the decoration was lovely & also the music, but the seating was very annoying and uncomfortable! either the table was very high or the chairs were very low! The service was somehow slow, we had to ask for everything by ourselves! The staff wasn’t efficient even though the place wasn’t crowded.
The menu lacked some essential Kuwaiti food like Harees & Jereesh! & they didn’t serve ma3booch with our meals neither pickles (These should be complimentary). Husband wanted Meat Machbos but the waiter told us it’s not available (finished) and it was only 6pm! What will happen around 9pm?! Nothing will be served i guess.
Now, let’s talk about the food. We ordered Oriental salad which was a HUGE disappointment. It only contained: cucumber, tomato & babeer (dunno what’s that in English) and the portion was hardly enough for 1 person. 3ayzaneeen etzedoon el5ethra?! and it was worth KD 1.800, wonder for what y3ni!? The Musakhan Tanoor was very delicious & we loved it el7mdellah. Their Vimto was very refreshing & i enjoyed drinking it even though I’m not a vimto person but it was recommended by my lovely friend Marawie :) The main courses came: Meat Biryani & Meat Rajan Joshi! The portion was also very little and our kidz in the family won’t feel full from such quantity! Seriously guys this is supposed to be a Kuwaiti restaurant not French or Italian! lesh el quantity like this! We like to see the plate full & I was fasting *sigh*! Oh yeah & the quality of the rice wasn’t that good (take a look at the last picture). But to be honest. The food was nice and cooked in a good way.
Wish they will do something about these things.
Not crowded at all
Oriental Salad :/
Finally, I’m done with this book *sigh*! I’ve been reading it for 3 weeks. Almost 500 pages, half of them are useless.
The story was good, a nice thriller and unpredictable but it was stretched far beyond imagination for no good reason. Wish it was shorter, many tiny details were added for nothing.
I’m not reading any book again for this author.
Today, we went to try the new cafe/froyo that has opened in K-Town! I’m addicted to frozen yogurt and l’m planning to try all in town (i think 2 left :P). Anyways we headed to the place according to their map posted on their Website
& it was easy to find, but we had problems with finding a good parking!
The place looks very neat and lovely! and the staff were very friendly ;) I asked for the flavors they have and they told me they have a new one called BillBerry (don’t ask me what it is, but it’s smth berry) which was very delicious! I had the choice of 3 toppings! Husband ordered mocha which was very delicious. We enjoyed our time there & next time nshallah we’ll try their sandwiches.
My verdict: everything is perfect BUT the price of the coffee is exaggerated! The mocha was for KD 1.550. Now, we would pay that kind of money for Starbucks or Caribou but for a new cafe, it should be less than that, and the cup was small! They just need price fixing and also mug sizes.
Oh yeah, the price of the froyo was just perfect: KD 1.500 for the small cup ;)
Model “K5” for KD 30/-
Model “K6” For KD 25/-
Model “K7” For KD 30/-
New models have arrived along with the previous ones :) call 99082292 for more details.

My very lovely husband is teaching me how to be a good housewife & one of my tasks is to learn how to buy seafood from the Fish Market (as if I’m gonna go :P). I’ve never been there, it was always either Dad or bro who go and buy some stuff. The smell just kills me whenever I go to Sultan Centre (Sharq) & actually being there inside the market wasn’t pleasant at all.
In the parking, I got outside the car and covered my nose with my hijab (veil), he looked at me and laughed! but the horror movie started inside the market itself, blood on the floor with dirty water and omg the smell, i was breathing from my mouth the whole time :/
We bought shrimp (2 kilos) & calamary (2 kilos). I asked him to let them cut it and clean it coz I ain’t doing so. Thank god they had that service!
I’m never ever going there! no matter what :S
P.S. Hubs called Dad and asked him to come have lunch with us on Friday. He told him that I’ll be cooking seafood without telling me about it first! Poor baba, he might suffer because I’ve never actually cooked seafood before except for Fish Fillet in the over :P

My sister got me this camera as a Birthday gift! Well, she didn’t know what to get me so I told her gimme the money, I wanna buy a camera :P It’s an analogue toy camera (ayam gabel, ta7mee’6)! I saw Shayouma get one (Another model) and I loved the packing! She asked me to check their website Lomograhy and I went crazy! OMG, it’s another world wallah, just go there n see for yourself! The effect of the pictures is just marvelous!
I’m gonna struggle in learning how to do double exposure (y3ni ekon fahma) n how to get it done the right way but this lovely lady called Nada is more than willing to help me out! So nshallah I’ll be an expert :D
Look how stylish it is :D
