A Great Friend @Jacqui

1

Having a good friend is very common these days but having an amazing friend that showers you with her love and generousity every now and then is very rare. A friend that thinks of you everyday is very rare. A friend that knows what you want and love without even asking is very rare. A friend that helps you whether you need it or not is very very rare … And that’s my beloved Jumana, you all know her as Jacqui.

She’s the sister that my mother didn’t bring, she’s the friend that I rely on and blindly trust. She’s my anchor. She’s an amazing and sweet person, evil and nasty at the same time which is what I really love about her :P

Even when she’s out of the country, she thinks of her dear friends. The 4th of December was her 30th birthday (I just had to mention the number lol) and believe it or not i still didn’t give her, her birthday gift (my time sucks). She was at the United States before that date and she thought of an amazing idea to celebrate her birthday. Customising a birthday gift to her special friends. This girl always gives and never waits to receive back. She’s beyond generous.

The birthday gift was really simple, but it had a big meaning. A letter that spoke from the heart and  hit a spot. I love you Jamoooon. God bless you woman :*

My Best Birthday Gift Ever

1

Having friends is an ordinary thing. But having great, loving, honest friends is very very rare specially in these days. One of the great friends I have is my dear Jacqui. I can’t tell you about this girl in words because it won’t do her justice. The sweetest, kindest, most honest loving girl on this earth. She would give you the globe on a gold plated tray if she could (Only the people she loves, can’t tell you what she’d do for those she doesn’t like hehe :P )

When I had Juju, she was out of the country but she managed to send me flowers congratulating me for having my lil duck in this world and when she came back, I was shocked by the amount of gift she got for Baby Jana.

And again, she was out of the country when I celebrated my birthday 3 months ago but when she came back, she passed by my home with a huge heavy box. It was really huge (I still have it). I was speechless, without even knowing what was inside it. This girl has the kindest heart ever, spontaneous and free.

Here comes the most shocking part. The box didn’t have 1 gift only, oh no, it had lots and lots of gifts individually wrapped just to make me crazy while unwrapping them (she might be evil sometimes).

Let me show you what she got me in pictures :D

Thank you my dearest and loveliest friend Jumana, I know I will never have or find such a great friend like you at all. Therefore, you’re stuck with me forever :***

A couple of days ago, my dear and sweet friend passed by to give me something. An Arabic Coffee Cup with my name written on it. The cup is sooo beautiful and cute, I don’t know whether to keep it as a memory or use it. And i’m thinking of getting the whole set with my family names (husband, daughter etc.)

Thank You 6ayooooba manen7eremsh ya 3sal :*

Mini Ghabga @Danderma’s Resort

DSC_3359

Last Friday, we gathered at our dear friend Danderma‘s house (3asa beit 3amer nshallah) just to catch up and have a chito chat. We haven’t met and sat with each other for a long time and we really needed the time to enjoy our time together. We were wearing PJs Jacqui & I, Danderma was wearing a training and PinkGirl was dressed up because she came from an outdoor Iftar :)

What I loved about this gathering is the simplicity. We sat on the floor, infront of the the coffee and tea and lots of savories and desserts. We couldn’t stop our mouths neither from talking nor munching :D

We discussed lots of things. What happens in Danderma’s resort, stays in Danderma’s resort *wink*

It was supposed to be a simple gathering but then we named it a mini ghabga at Danderma’s resort :)

Thank you Naddoooya for the lovely gathering :*

I got back home FULL! Couldn’t even breath nor sleep! We really had fun talking about the good old days when we were in highschool :P

Good Friends Are Very RARE

Everybody knows that good friends are very hard to find these days & they’re really very very rare. It’s not a new issue I’m talking about but somehow after chatting with Jacqui early morning, I felt like I needed to write about this subject.

You meet new people everyday & people are used to calling them “friends” but the truth is, they’re not! You can call them “mates”, “colleagues” or whatever you want to but no one deserves the word “friends” except REAL friends!

Sometimes you get fooled by close ones thinking they’re your friends but they’re not! No true friend would wanna hurt you if you really mean something to them. True friends will always be there for you no matter what your mood, attitude, religion or color is!

What annoys me the most is when those you think they’re your friends, get jealous from you because/from silly things! and they get really envious when actually what they have (sometimes) is better than what you have! Why can’t you just be content and wish your friends well?! If you can’t do that, then you’re not a good person & you’re not a true friend.

This post is dedicated to the amazing people in my life . . . you know who you are ;)

Morning Walk+Prime & Toast

Yes we did it! The plan was for us me, NoonWrapping Mania to wake around 5 am, pray and leave around 5:45 to enjoy walking in this lovely weather and enjoy the lovely breeze! I slept around 2 am and woke up at 5 am :/ so you cant imagine what happened later on! It was somehow cold, good thing I was wearing smth warm! We walked, walked , talked, talked & enjoyed taking photos from here & there! It was very very refreshing to walk at 6 am in the morning . . . You don’t get this weather everytime in Kuwait!

Then we decided to have breakfast at Prime&Toast, which was my 1st experience and was ok! I ordered Waffles with Nutella & Maple syrup (Which I realized later on i forgot to take a photo of)! They were fine, I prefer Dean&Deluca’s!

After that, like around 8:45 am, we weren’t ready to get home yet! So we went to Starbucks Kaifan to meet up with another friend of ours (Dalooooool), she’s the Queen of Craziness, madness is her middle name hehe! we laughed like there was no one around us & enjoyed our time drinking coffee and talking about things that are not appropriate to post about LOL :P

Cheese Omelet

Pancakes

Cup of Cappuccino

Praying For You!

My dear ex-colleague turned great friend Ahmad is going through tough time these days! He’s hving MRI right now and they’re suspecting a tumor in his lower back! I dont know what will happen or when will the results come back! But i’m praying for him it wont be anything serious!

I remember when we used to work together, he used to come sometimes late to work saying he was at the doctor suffering from back pain! but you’d never ever see a frown on his face! He’d always be laughing, talking, interacting with all kinds of people & even those who hate him, he would sit down with them and just talk as if they didnt try to harm him before! He’d ask about me & I’ll always complain, but you never see him do that! Even though he has more troubles in life than I hv, but does he come and whine about it?

I’ve never seen such a respectful, generous, kind, white hearted, sweet man as Ahmad is! He doesn’t deserve this! Nobody does actually! I being a bad friend, didnt check on him after all these years, didnt ask about his back or his health or anything! I just kept on whining to him or just being silly and tease him about stuff! That’s me, and I admit it, I was a bit selfish! But now I really hope that nothing serious going on with him and that it would be treatable enshallah! Please pray for him!

Bnaider Party

Happy Sunday morning people :) I’ve just realized that when you have incredible weekends, Sundays happen to be beautiful & full of energy and positiveness! So let’s start with the crazy/luntic stuff that happened Friday night! but before that let me start with smth, that day I felt really awful for going to a party, music, dancing & laughter, because on that same day 5 years ago, it was my mom’s 47th birthday & on the same day she was diagnosed with Myeloma! I teared a lil bit but the devil in me whispered and told me, you have to enjoy your life to the max and that crying, weeping or feeling sorry for yourself won’t bring her back! My devil is wiser than me ;)

My bestie Wawa picked me up around 2:30 pm, her kidz were with us (yakhty) and we headed to Bnaider, reached there around 4 because we stopped at McDonald’s to hv light lunch! When we got there, we settled in and started organizing the place, the sofas, the snacks and other things! around 6 pm we headed to our rooms and changed our clothes! The music started playing outside, so we hurried and got out to find the DJ is there and already in the mood!

Me and Wawa were the only stylish girls when we first came in, it felt weird lol! The other girls were dressed for a Chalet party but we dressed for Posh Party, we just wanted to feel the luxury in us :P Than god later on, other girls (I don’t know) came in dressed like us :P Anyways, from the first song Wawa hit the ramp lol but me I had to get in the mood, good thing it didn’t take that long, the 2nd song i was among the crowd :D We started dancing like crazy girls on the loose, doing silly dancing moves with our hands, heads and smtimes hair! It was like we just got out the Psychiatric Ward :D Oh yeah, and later on, in the middle of the party, I changed my clothes and wore my Pjs, it felt more comfortable than the dress and I danced freely in them :P

Stylish, waay too stylish girls got in later on but never heard them say a word nor even move from their place! they were just looking at us and I felt like they were gossiping about us saying what kind of a lunatic set those girls free & in bnaider! h3 h3 h3! Actually we didnt care who was looking and who wasn’t, we just wanted to enjoy ourselves and we did :) When it hit 10 pm sharp, dinner was ready! We ate a lil bit and went back to continue dancing before the DJ leaves the Chalet! We asked her to play for use one last song to have a group dance! It was hilarious! :D

Later, we got outside, sat down infront of the moonlight and started chatting about nonsense topics! But we all weren’t in the mood for it, very tired, drained and out of this world! We literary didn’t stop dancing at all, so around 2 am we went to sleep, I cant even remember when did I put my head on the pillow! It was a very deep sleep, couldnt feel a thing, except Wawa’s son Barhoom waking up crying just for few seconds, then I was back to sleep again!

Woke up next morning/same morning around 10 am (Don’t ask why) together! It turned out we were both awake but being silent lol! The living room was very sunny and bright, breakfast was last nights food! Love leftovers! We munched on cupcakes, cookies and mini cakes (best breakfast ever)! then we spread our legs on the sofas and just sat there watching TV & talking about stuff, kidz going outside and inside the Chalet! It was great doing nothing at all, just looking and eating!

Got back around 6 pm, was very super tired! but had to sit a lil bit with Dad, coz I haven’t seen him for 1 day! He also seemed happy seeing me happy and that i actually enjoyed my time! With no warning, i saw myself hugging my pillow around 9 pm last night and woke up today around 6 am! aaahhhh best sleep ever :D

Saw this guy flying his boat or whatever you call that and it looked just amazing! I wanna fly that thing too! Dunno if he did it or bought it but I’m sure it brings lots of fun!

My 1st SleepOver

Believe it or not, at this age (27) I’m going to have my first sleepover! Yes, my 1st. Well my mom (allah yer7amha) was very strict in a very horrible way smtimes but now I can understand why she was like that! She never let me sleep outside the house except at my grandma’s house and she was very clear that I only sleep in her bedroom! She even didn’t allow me to sleep at my cousin’s house, NEVER! and I always felt am an outcast because of that, friends & cousins stopped asking me to even come to their houses because again mom made difficult rules! and i thank her very much for that, now I have the best friends ever who stood by my side in good & bad situations, & even when i did smth wrong, they were there for me to make it right!

My bestie Wawa, called me a couple of days ago telling me the girls in her family are going to have a party at their Chalet in Bnaider and that I’m going with her for sure. Wooooot Wooooot, we’re gonna have a party at their Chalet, all girls and no elderlies or chaperons aha aha aha :D This is not the 1st party they do, I’ve been to their parties before and let me tell you, she has the best cousins ever, all of them are awesome and I can be myself and not judged at all! That’s why I got the new dress :D

Then Wawa called me yesterday telling me that all of them will be sleeping there and that she will be sleeping too! She asked to check with my father! I was like *OhGod*, I was too scared to even think about asking him to sleep out of the house and not to mention in a chalet! I call my dad “yuba I wanna ask your permission for smth”, “I just gave you money, what do you want now?”, “Dad I said PERMISSION, not need or want! Wawa will be sleeping at the chalet on Friday and she asked me if I can sleep with her too?”. “OK” <– just like that?! “Really? thank thank you babaty :*”, “On one condition, they pick you up” <– always conditions and rules! hehe, who cares?! I’m having my first sleepover with my best friend for the 1st time after having the raziest party ever with a DJ rocking Bnaider-hood yeeeepppeeeee!

It’s my 1st party in yrs, never been to one in a long time! Had one last yr and called it *Kaifan Disco* but i couldnt be myself completely because there were lots n lots of new people! Didn’t wanna give them the impression of who-is-that-lunatic?! So i kept myself a lil bit crazy n wise at the same time! but now I’m having the opportunity to be myself and more! I even told her “look i know ur cousins know how crazy i am, but i might just lose it coz it’s been a very long time since i had a blast”! she laughed and said “I’m the one who is gonna lose it, i’m the one who’s with 2 kids and never had fun in a very long time”! Oh yeah and her lil baby boy Barhoom will be sleeping with us in the same room, yeeey I love babies alot :D Can’t wait for tomorrow!
