Mini Ghabqa #Take2 غبقة حضرتنا

1

Last Monday, we gathered at Jumana’s house, you all know her as The SideTalk. I haven’t been to her house before but this lady is so kind and nice, I’ve know her ever since we were pregnant with our babies and we’ve kept in touch. She’s one of the few people that I feel comfortable with so we all gathered at her cozy place wearing somehow fancy Darra’as (not THAT fancy). The gang members were DandermaJacqui, and PinkGirl. It’s always fun gathering with these girls.

Jumana’s house was so whitish and full of coziness and comfort. I felt so happy entering her house and sitting on her huge sofas and facing a huge bouquet of mini pink roses. The lady was so busy going and coming back from the kitchen preparing the table. We decided not to eat a lot on Fitoor so we can have fun together eating delicious food, yes we can have lots n lots of fun eating food lol :P

She made a delicious Syrian Taboulah, it was so yummy :P we ate Caesar pizza, hummus, fatayer and a lot of desserts. Aaahhh the desserts were awesome, heavenly awesome especially the Turkish Muhalabiya which I posted about on my instagram account (check it out if you want more information @crazyyetwise).

At the end of our mini ghabqa, Jumana had a lil surprise for us all. Her baby”s Gerge’an. How cute is baby Yuyu? ha? Soo damn cute :D Thank you Jumana for having us in your beautiful house. We loved everything :*

Thank You iFUNity for The Gerge’an

1

A couple of days ago, I received a huge Gerge’an package from inFUNity play area which is located in 360Mall. I love the place because it has games for all ages. I used to take Juju there ever since she was 9months old and she would enjoy her time to the max. The people who work there are very friendly and active, they will definitely draw a huge smile on your child’s face once you enter the area. And sometimes they make nice offers, like charge for 20KD and get 8KD extra, something like that.

The Gerge’an package came with delicious sweets from NagwaKuwait (Hail o Zaafrn before). I loved the packaging and the sweets, very delicious and yummy.

Thank you inFUNity for the yummy Gerge’an and for the gift :D I’m sure Juju will enjoy her time to the max :)

Gerge’an Party

3

Every year in Ramadan we celebrate Gerge’an with lots of candies and chocolates. It’s a very special occasion that children have fun and enjoy their time. You see mothers getting creative with their Gerge’an ideas. This year I didn’t want to make for Juju anything and want it to be quiet but I found some boxes hidden in my wardrobe and thought why not use them and make Gerge’an for Juju. It was very simple and small. Because I have other arrangements I decided to make it simple. The other arrangements you’ll know about it in 2 weeks :D

 Here are some pictures from the Gerge’an party which we attended and had lost of fun. My sweet heart is all grown up now as you can see in the pictures :)

Mini Ghabga غبقة حضرتنا

photo 4

Finally, my beautiful fat macbook pro is alive with a new heart :D It’s been more than 2 weeks. He was dead for no reason, I tried to revive him, but nothing worked until I called fixaid (tried them before for my iPhone) and they’ve informed me that they have to take the pc with them to the workshop. The idea of your pc away from your sight is kinda scary, so i waited for another idea or way to fix my computer but there was nothing. I called them again and they’ve fixed the problem in 4 days. The hard disk was dead and they had to replace it with a new one (512GB upgraded).

Of course everything was gone, but the most important things were backed up on an external hard drive. I’ve lost my blog watermark :( all the programmes I used to work on were all gone (need to install them again). And I’ve lost Juju’s 18months pictures :( *Sniff* and my school work *aaaaaahhhh* which I didn’t back but i can get it from my colleagues when the academic year starts again.

Now, I’m back to writing and this time, i’ll be talking about our mini Ghabqa which was hosted by our dear Danderma aver les amis Jacqui and PinkGirlq8. I love these girls, they’re the closest to my heart and I can say whatever I want in front of them not worrying what will come out of my mouth at all. I can act freely and easily. I can wear whatever i want in front of them, and that exactly what happened in our mini Ghabqa which we called غبقة حضرتنا quoting the name from Saray Abdeen TV show which we are addicted to.

In Kuwaiti Ghabqas (Ramadan gathering after Iftar) you have to wear a very elegant Darra’a and wear jewellery and make up. We didn’t want that in our Ghabqa, we wore house Darra’a and sat on the floor facing the table full of yumminess and watching TV.

It was a very nice and cozy Ghabqa where we had lots of fun together. I love you girls :*

Zain’s Social Media Day

1

Every year, Zain Telecom Company celebrates Social Media Day with bloggers, and social media influencers. Each Year they celebrate it on the 30th of June, the international day, but this year it was on the 25th of July just before Ramadan but I believe next year it will be in Ramadan :)

I have to talk about their invitations, every year they shock us with amazing and creative events. This year, a customised song to invite us to the Social Media Day and it was really nice :D

The invitation says “Hala Crazyyetwise” but on youtube it doesn’t :/

Every year they choose a new location and this time it was at Prestige Ballroom-The Avenues. I was really eager to see the ballroom itself. Got ready and left the house around 6:30pm and reached there around 7pm, the street were really crowded :/

The ballroom was kinda small yet cozy, I don’t think you can host weddings or big events there, but you can have big meetings or such events like the Social Media Day. The decoration of the place was really nice. The tables settings and silverware was beautiful and elegant, I really loved the birds theme. The food was delicious.

The event started around 8pm, Mike Embalta3 was the presenter along with a new guy (forgot his name). Mr. Mohammad Almuhaini gave us a funny light speech as always. The event had so many sections, talking about social media experience, presenting some influencers, talking about the most followed people on instagram and what they represent etc. Also there were 2 huge screens showing the world cup matches which we didn’t miss.

when we first entered the the ballroom, a nice lady gave us numbers for some draws, they held a draw for 3 winners every now and then, and guess whaaaaaat? I won, my prize was iPhone 5c :D I just love winning. Oh and when I went out to pick my prize, Mike Embalta3 asked to chat with me a bit, I was nervous because this was my first time talking under the spotlight. He asked me about how bloggers turned to instagram and forgot their blogs, an oh boy, this was it. I told him “blogging is about writing, not just posting pictures, instagram is like a mini blog just for photos and some comments not a real blog and it’s that many bloggers deserted their blogs and now they’re only posting on instagram” :P

I went back to my chair shaking, it was such a nice experience.

Thank you Zain for the lovely event.

Hello 31 ^_^

A couple of weeks ago, I completed my 31st year and i’m actually loving the 30s experience. I feel blessed with all the love and respect I’m surrounded with. I’m speechless with all the cakes, gifts, sms etc from all my friends and family. It was really special and I’m really thankful.

Our Graish Party

1

Every year, we celebrate garish (pre Ramadan feast) at my grandparent’s house, with our family members and friends. The gathering begins around 7pm and continues tip midnight getting in the mood for Ramadan timing. My aunt takes care of the decorations and activities, my grandma takes care of the food, she has a great cook, and we other family members bring desserts with us.

We wear darra’a because it’s Ramadan theme and we get to talk and chit chat with everybody we haven’t seen for a while. We also play some Ramadan Kuwaiti songs and dance a bit, my beautiful Juju loved the whole atmosphere, she didn’t stop dancing. We had lots of fun :D

The food was amazing, my grandma’s cook did an amazing job, we also brought a lady that does Rgag bread in front of our eyes with a variety of stuffing. DELICIOUS.

Ramadan Kareem

Kidzania Kuwait First Anniversary

1

I received a lovely gift from Kidzania Kuwait. It was a Vita doll (which we were wanting to buy) and 3 tickets to enter Kidzania and enjoy their celebrations. We went on Friday afternoon, it wasn’t that crowded because it was still exams. Their staff were friendly as always, they explained everything to us in details, gave us a map of the place and informed us that some new places opened but they’re not listed in the brochure.

The tickets they gave us entitled Juju to a check of 50 kidzos, which gave Juju the chance to play more, and I told them that she’s 2 years (white lie) because I wanted her to try new places. She got the chance to play in the Fire station, House of Urbano and she loved playing with Vita character which came to greet kids every hour or so. Juju also had the chance to create her own perfume at Alqurashi with the help of the lady in charge.

I really loved seeing Juju in the Fireman costume, she was so cute and lovely. She enjoyed the celebrations very much, dancing with the staff and the characters. It was a lovely day well spent. I’ll wait tip Juju is a lil bit older so she can enjoy her time and try more places/jobs.

Thank you Kidzania for the lovely day and wish you more success in the future.

@KidZaniaKuwait Experience For The First Time

1

I was dying to take Juju to Kidzania ever since it opened its doors in The Avenues. But she was too young to enjoy or understand the concept of the place. To be honest, I myself wanted to visit the place and explore it but I had to have a reason for my visit :P Now, that Juju is 1yr 6months, I decided to take her and take a look at the place.

Because she’s under 2yrs, she entered for free but I had to pay for myself and my help. Booked our tickets online and entered easily and fast. The staff were very very helpful and sweet. They were smiling all the time, and greeting us whenever we passed by them. Juju didn’t receive any Kidsoz but she earned some, around 16 Kidsoz :P

When we first entered, we witnessed their famous song and dance which Juju enjoyed to the max, she didn’t want to leave Vita at all. She was hugging her and going near her all the time :D I wanted to buy her a Vita character but it was out of stock :(

Too bad Juju didm;t enjoy a lot of places, she only went to the police station to investigate 2 incidents and she made an aquafina water. She also enjoyed her time at The House of Urbano and didm;t want to leave the kitchen at all. Also she enjoyed her time painting and drawing at AUS.

I have to say that we enjoyed our time for 5 hours but then Juju became grumpy and we had to go back home. Our next visit will be when she’s older, around 3 yrs so she can enjoy her time.

Elmo Makes Music

1

I received a VIP invitation to attend the musical show “Elmo Makes Music”, coming all the way from USA to entertain us for few days. The VIP show was on Wednesday, just one day before the original show. I took Juju with me. This was her 1st musical after turning 1 year and a half. I was kinda worried she won’t sit down or enjoy the show. I was totally wrong. Once the show started, she stayed put in her chair, enjoying the show, the music, and clapping all the time. She was so calm and focused. But when the show stopped for a break, she got grumpy and I believe she wanted to sleep because it was around 8pm at that time. Yes the show started a lil bit late, after 7pm.

The show was marvellous, the stage, the colours, the songs, the music and oh my my the characters were totally amazing and fun. I really loved it and enjoyed singing with them. I love it when companies start taking care of such events in Kuwait, we need more of this and I hope to see and nice built stage with lots of events and shows.

Thank you Even Mania Co. for the invitation <3

The Oz Land – The Dome Mall

1

I’ve heard a lot about this place. My colleagues/teachers talked a lot about it but I wasn’t sure where it was located until one of them took her kids and then told me where is it exactly. It’s located in Mahboula, just next to Kuwait Majic Mall. You’ll see a grey building, the place is inside.

What does this place have? Well, it has lots of things; your kids can enjoy 10 minutes with several animals, cats, parrots, rabbits or turtles. My Juju enjoyed her time with the cats, she loves them and had fun brushing their hair as you can see in the pictures below :)

The place also has many games, playground and a sand playground. Juju didn’t want to leave that place, we had to pull her out of it making a lot of noise :/

The ticket for everything costs kd 5/- which is very reasonable and the time is unlimited for the sand playground and other games except for the animal houses.

Take your kids, they will have lots of fun :D
