1001 Inventions Exhibition-Scientific Centre

1

I received an invitation to attend the opening of 1001 Inventions Exhibitions organised by The Scientific Centre but unfortunately, I couldn’t attend. I really wanted to go because it looked interesting.

I managed to go last Friday and drop the place a visit. It’s not that huge but still not that small. Decent. You start with a mini movie that gives you an introduction to what you’re going to explore. Many people think that the Romans and Greeks invented everything, and not everyone know that Muslims invented a lot of things back in the Dark Ages.

After the movie, the curtain is pulled up and you get to explore the whole place. Major inventions and how do they work. You see some people talking about each invention in Arabic language. The exhibition is good for children above 6 years old, as it’s kind of difficult to understand the Arabic language and how such inventions work.

As you get deeper inside the tent, you’ll find a place where you can dress yourself or your children like they used to dress in the past and take some photos. I really loved this corner. Dressed Juju with a very loose dress and took some photos for her, they pictures were really cute :D

There is a gift shop at the end of the exhibition where you can buy some books and other stud. Also there is a corner for kids’ activities; colouring, painting and other things.

Thank you Mr. Nawaf Al-Rudaini for the invitation :)

Kidsville Carnival-Wahran Park

1

I’m loving what’s going on in our country Kuwait in the past couple of years. Carnivals, parades, celebrations and so many things start from November tip April. So many activities and things to do or enjoy for kids. Every weekend, I have a place for Juju to take.

Last week, there was this beautiful carnival organised and arranged by @Kidsville_Kw (instagram). It was held in Wahran park in Shamiya. To me the place is kinda small, I prefer Discovery Mall garden which is more spacious and it has a huge parking. But this one is also okay.

We went there around 3pm and the place mashallah was full. Kids running every where, enjoying their time. Parents resting on chairs or floor pillows enjoying a cup of coffee. Other kids were eating from the delicious kiosks around the garden. And Juju’s pre-school was there which made Juju very happy seeing her picture on the TV :)

It was really fund, and what made it extra fun, the Zumba dancing with Rana Al-Omani. She is really amazing with kids. Juju kept dancing and clapping all the time. She made the children very happy.

We enjoyed our day to the max :D

Winter Festival in @KidzaniaKuwait

1

After receiving the delicious invitation from Kidzania Kuwait. We couldn’t go immediately because Baby Jana fell very sick and we had to wait few weeks to drop the place a visit. And we weren’t disappointed at all. The place looked so wintery.

When we first entered everything looked dazzling. Artificial snow comes down every few seconds, songs played every where, white and light decorations are all over the place and there’s even a new place made only for winter festival with lots and lots of winter games. You see penguins everywhere, up and down. Juju enjoyed looking at the lights and kept saying “letat letat” as in “lights lights”.

I took Juju to the painting studio to paint on her face and she enjoyed it a lot. I chose a wintery drawing to suit the mood and the decoration. It also matched her clothes.

There’s also a Frozen Pass where you can enjoy shows and some events but it’s not suitable for Juju’s age. I believe from 4 or 5 and above.

We loved everything <3

Kidzania Winter Festival continues tip the 24th of Jan 2015. Don’t miss it.

I received a huge colourful basket from Kidzania Kuwait full of sweet, candy and chocolate. All the products in this basket are being sold in Dean and Deluca.

Of course, all the candy and chocolate are meant for Juju but I couldn’t resist, beside she’s sick and candy makes the cough worse, so I’m keeping some for her when she gets better :P

I also received tickets for Kidzania Winter Festival which started on the 11th of Dec 2014 and will end on the 24th of Jan 2015.

I’m going this week and will be posting about it soon nshallah.

Happy Belated Birthday @Jacqui

9

She’s the best friend ever. She will make you happy just with her genuine smile and white heart. She knows what you like and what you hate and she wouldn’t bring the thing you hate close to you ever. She’ll make your life as happy as she can with all her gifts, designs, or ever just her whatsapp chats.

I’m talking about my T.V. Shows junkie friend Jacqui or as Juju calls her “Samoona” as in “Jumana” lol :P She has turned 31 last Thursday *Old Woman* :P and I wish this year will bring joy and happiness and more success nshallah as I’m sure that she’ll shine one day and become this big person in our society with great power.

As we wanted to make something in return for all her efforts and gifts to make us happy. We decided to throw her a surprise birthday party before her actual birthday without her noticing anything. So we created a whatsapp group behind her back to plan everything. I took care of the food, Danderma took care of the balloons and decorations and PinkGirl, well the whole thing happened in her house/tent and she took care of decorations and food also.

She came very late and we were very hungry on that day because we didn’t have lunch, we were saving extra space for all the food we were going to eat on that night. Of course she was surprised and didn’t know about our plans :P We bought some Elevation Burgers and made them as a cake for her and another cake but this one is the delightful orange Kenafa which was really delicious, I loved it.

We love you Samoona, may all your wishes come true. I know one is coming within few days ;)

IKEA Soft Toys Campaign

1

Every year in November & December IKEA holds a campaign for Children’s Education around the world and donates 1 Euro for every toy sold in all IKEA stores around the world. The donation goes to Save The Children & UNICEF.

“The projects improve education in Asia, Africa, and Central and  Europe. With the funding, our partners help schools become more child-friendly with well-trained teachers for all children, girls and boys, including those from ethnic minorities and those with special needs.

A couple of weeks ago, we had a small gathering, just 4 mothers (bloggers) and their children. We had light lunch and got introduced to the whole idea of IKEA Campaign to improve education in undeveloped countries.

Our children are blessed enough to have proper education and we are thankful for that. Go to IKEA, buy your kid a soft toy (which doesn’t cost that much) and help another kid get proper education.

The Opening of Hello Kitty Spa @The_Avenues

1

A couple of weeks ago, I’ve attended the official opening of Hello Kitty Spa, located in the first floor of the 2nd Avenue. To be honest the place was crowded with media & they were very annoying so I didn’t get to explore the place that much or even try one of their services which I’ll try soon nshallah. But to be frank, the place is HUGE. Like really huge, I didn’t expect it to be like that.

For now, just enjoy the pictures, but soon i’ll be posting a review about the services that i’ll try there :)

Fun Fair Everywhere Carnival

1

Remember last March? Click Here

Well, they came back this season with a better and bigger carnival. The people who are in charge of the Fun Fair Everywhere Carnival organised the event this time in a bigger place. It was held in Discovery Mall Park which was really huge.

The event took place from 12 tip 9 pm but we arrived there around 1pm. Took Juju & my help with me, my blanket, basket and coffee :P What I liked this time was that almost all activities were out of charge, free. So many kids enjoyed their time in the arts and crafts sections. Some games that didn’t cost much .500fils and also some booths offered free of charge activities for kids.

Juju enjoyed her time in the snow pool and colouring. She also enjoyed her time dancing, running around the place and just walking here and there. Also the weather was really cool.

Don’t miss this event when it comes back again. Make sure to follow their instagram account to be up to date with their activities @Funfairkw

Happy 2nd Birthday Sweet Jana

1

Having a healthy beautiful child is an amazing blessing from Allah. Baby Jana is the best thing that has ever happened to me after I’ve lost my dear mother 9 years ago. Everyday I wake up thanking god for what I have. I’m trying to be the best mother for Jana and I want to make her happy all the time. Whether to take her out, buy her new clothes or toys, playing with her or even telling her bed time stories. And giving her the best birthdays ever.

This year, her birthday was 3 days earlier because of Eid and people travelling so we had to make it on Thursday 2nd of October but her actual birthday is on the 5th. This year’s theme was Sofia The First. She became attached to this Disney princess so much that she keeps saying her name all the time “Sopeya,,,Sopeya” :P So it wasn’t that difficult to think of the theme but the preparation was very tiring and the weather became so nasty :/

I ordered Sofia The First Party decorations from a website and they were delivered within 10 days, then I got to think of the setting. I chose my grandparents yard which is huge and a good location for taking pictures. After that I got to prepare the setting of the tables. I went to Caramel and ordered and 2 tiers special cake that matched the theme of Sofia and cake pops and cookies from Luscious. I went to Hawalli to get other kinds of decorations and purple fabric to cover the tables.

On the day of the party, we started getting the yard ready for the celebration. Everything screamed Sofia <3 I’m in love with this elegant and feminine princess. Lanterns, balloons, confetti and so many things hanging on the ceiling.  The DJ people came to set their stuff and everything was ready by 5:30 pm. Imagine working from 11 am tip 5 pm in a very humid weather. I couldn’t breath after the party finished but i didm’t feel a thing while the kids were dancing and having fun.

People started arriving around 5:30 pm and the fun started immediately. All the girls wore Disney princesses and they looked so adorable <3 They loved and enjoyed everything even though the wether wasn’t helping. my dear Juju was enjoying her day to the max, dancing and playing around. She wasn’t keen on playing games with the other girls, maybe because she’s too young to understand winning competitions and games but she loved playing with Sofia stuff that were every where.

The time came for Juju to blow her 2nd birthday’s candles. Everybody was singing Happy Birthday but Jujus was in another place, eating her marshmallow pop and smiling :P The cake was so delicious yum yum. All red velvet and dark chocolate.

My sweet Baby Jana, I hope one day I’ll see a grown up woman full of beauty inside and outside. Successful and smart. Married and have beautiful kids. Amazing career and life. I love you mama and I wish you all the best.

P.S. Everything has been arranged with the help of @eventful_kw <3

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 :)

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.
