Dallah’s New Pistachio Ghuraibah

1

I got this love package from @DallahKuwait that had delicious stuff inside it. And guess what? Pistachio Ghuraibah, yummy. I honestly love their stuff. They offer old Kuwaiti food yet modern. They have their special touch in every dish and that’s why they keep experimenting and bringing us delicious desserts.

The dish was big, full of mini ghuraibahs topped with pistachios. It;s very small that you can’t feel yourself eating it. I assure you that once you open that box, it will be open in not time. it’s flu of cardamom which I like almost in everything.

Of course I had to add my special touch :P I got my Hershey’s Choco Spread and dipped the mini ghuraibah in it and it was beyond yumminess. Imagine ghuraiba+pistachio+chocolate=???? You tell me the word :D

Thank you Dallah and wish you all the best :)

Burger Fuel Is In Kuwait

1

Last week, I came to know that Burger Fuel is about to open in Kuwait. And few days later I received an invitation to the grand opening. I was very excited because I tried their burger last year in Dubai Mall and fell in love with it. So imagine the whole chain coming to my home town *dances*

We went there around 6pm and we were greeted by Stewart from South Africa & Stacy from New Zealand which is the hometown for Burger Fuel. They introduced us to the place and explained what they have on the menu. I asked about the special burgers, they said that they wouldn’t be available now but they’d be coming after a month or so.

We ordered The Monster, BackFire, Pumpkin Balls and Fries. The Monster was heavenly delicious and the pumpkin balls were very yummy and mushy, you have to try them. I admit the burgers were really heavy but it was my cheat day and they were totally worth it :)

Bazza Cafe Breakfast Experience

1

A couple of days ago, I went with my family to try the new menu of Cafe Bazza. As you all know, my first experience 2 years ago wasn’t perfect so this time I hoped it will be better and it was. Many people told me that their breakfast is amazing but I didn’t listen because of my first experience.

Last Tuesday, my father, brother, his wife & I went to Cafe Bazza West Mishref branch around 9am. It wasn’t that crowded but around 9:30am and mashallah the place got jammed in no time. We  chose the table next to the window because i love the sunlight <3 We ordered various dishes from the new breakfast menu such as; Dasman Breakfast, Fereej Breakfast, Eggs with Creamy Cheese, Eggs with Truffles, and Truffles Hamsa. The best were Truffles Hamsa, Dasman Breakfast, and the Eggs with Creamy Cheese. I  loved their Labna and Falalafel, amazing. But the Chicken Kidneys weren’t that cooked, that was the only thing that we didn’t like. But everything was so delicious.

Their Karak and Milk with Cardamom were superb. Loved the whole thing.

Mezzo Experience-Kipco Tower

1

1st day of Eid, we have lunch at my grandparents’ house, but on the 2nd day we go out. This time we wanted somewhere away from the crowd, somewhere quiet where we can enjoy lunch. We picked @Mezzo_Kw (instagram) which is located in Kipco Tower. I love Kipco because it’s in the city, quiet and away from everyone especially now it’s a public holiday so even employees aren’t there. All for us.

We booked a table for 3 persons because they didn’t have baby chairs which was very annoying :/ This is my only complain about the place, they must baby chairs for kids. Many families were struggling with their toddlers when we arrived there, I was one of them. It’s hard to keep a 2 year old on a regular chair.

I love restaurants that welcome their guests with complimentary food. They offered us Mushroom Cappuccino Soup (even for Juju) and some kind of Nachos with 3 kids of dressings to enjoy. They were really delicious. Now, I’ll leave you with the pictures and the dishes we ordered:

Complimentary nachos with dressings and Mushroom cappuccino

Verdict: yum yum

4

Jalapeño Almond Glazed Shrimp Salad

Verdict: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This is one of the best salads I’ve ever tasted. I thought it’s going to be spicy but it wasn’t at all. I loved the texture of almond and I think there was a lil bit of honey. Yummy.

5

Beef Brisket Sandwich

Verdict: So delicious and messy. Note that when you want to eat this dish, you’re gonna mess the whole place :P but it’s worth it.

6

Prawn Green Curry

Verdict: This dish was ok, nothing special about it and it was very spicy, didn’t eat that much.

7

Mushroom Tartufo Pasta

Verdict: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Very creamy, juicy, moist and delicious. We enjoyed eating this dish a lot, full of delicious and fresh mushrooms.

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

Sweet Twins 2 Official Opening

1

Last week, I was invited to attend the official opening of Sweet Twins 2 chocolate shop by the sweet Amira Al-Shaalan. The chocolate boutique has opened in Omnia mall just next to Little Treats. The opening was really nice and somehow quiet unlike other openings which I liked very much because I’m not all-media person so this one suited me.

We were introduce to all their kinds of chocolate but I got to try only 3 of them because you can’t have a lot of chocolate at once. All the samples i tried were so good, specially the ones with marshmallows and caramel, yummy. The interior of the place from the inside was so rural and vintage with all the beautiful flowers surrounding you and seating area was so calming to the eyes and mind. Loved everything about the place and will be heading there soon nshallah.

Oh and I took Juju with me to this event and she rocked the red carpet hehe :P she went saying hi to the people there, taking photos with others and even trying the chocolate herself ;)

Wish you all the best <3

Sultan Centre Gift Basket

1

A couple of weeks ago, I received a huge basket from Sultan Centre through Chaliah Technology that was filled with lots of delicious and healthy goodies. Almost everything inside the basket was organic. If not organic, it was healthy in a way or so, like dark chocolate and products with less sugar in them. The basket was really huge and heavy, I was wondering what was inside it and it didm’t take me that long to open it :D

So many things to try and decide what’s good and what’s not (if there’s something not good which I doubt). I tried the Acai smoothie which was amazing, you think it’s small but it fills your tummy and makes you full. I also tried the dark chocolate bar, not my thing but it was good, marshmallows were also good, made them as pops for Juju’s birthday ;) The corn ships was really good, i’d finish any normal chips bag in a minute but this one is still full, why? because it makes me full fast :P I tried the pasta good which turned out to be good but needed salt which I added while cooking.

I’m looking forward to trying the other stuff specially the organic white bean, soon nshallah.

Thank you Sultan Centre & Chaliah Technology <3

Night Out in Omorfia Salon

1

The owners of Omorfia Salon arranged for a night out in their place for me and my friends (Pinkgirl & Danderma). As we arrived, we saw a beautiful door coloured in blue. And when we entered, the whole place is decorated as if you are in Mykonos, a Greek Island. All white & blue with a lil bit of pink. The owner welcomed us to her salon, she showed us the way around the place and what they offer or do in the salon. They’re still working on other treatments which will be added soon.

We drank our blueish welcome drinks and then we started our hair treatment. Mine was with collagen with gave my hair some texture & it looked really nice. Then we had a manicure, I chose lavender & 6yob chose ice cream, both smelled really nice and we enjoyed the treatment very much.

The food and drinks kept coming tip the very end of the night and we loved everything about the food and the place. I wish you all the best dear Abrar & we’ll be seeing you soon nshallah.

Omorfia is located in Jabriya, the same building as Alkindy Pharmacy and this is their instagram account @OmorfiaKW

Dinner By The Pool

1

Last weekend was one of the busiest weekends I’ve ever had yet it was also one of the best. My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and we named her Noura <3 On the day that she gave birth, we were very tired after all the hassle, going up and down in the hospital, feeding the baby, helping my sister with stuff and so on. We really needed and break and we had a very beautiful one.

At night, we were invited to my aunt’s friends house that has a huge outdoor area with a beautiful relaxing pool and Jacuzzi. As we entered the house, we said Hi and immediately jumped in the pool. What I enjoyed the most was watching Juju swim from the Jacuzzi to the pool and back to the Jacuzzi. She had a fantastic time, she didn’t want to leave the pool at all, we had to pull her out with lots of screaming and crying :P

Then we had a very delicious light dinner by the pool. The atmosphere was a killer. What was missing a romantic movie and it would have been the perfect night. But anyways, it was the perfect night because we had lots of fun. Around 10:30pm we got out of the pool, changed Juju and off to our house. Juju didn’t say a word when I put her in her bed, she just hugged her lizard and fell in a deep sleep :)

Wok-Hay Experience

1

We got the chance to try the newly opened Asian Cuisine restaurant called Wok-Hay which is located near Green Island entrance. When we entered, the place was very quiet and we were served immediately. The staff were very helpful and they helped us choose the best dishes they have as we don’t have an idea about the place but we also chose some dishes from the pictures displayed on the iPad menu.

The food didn’t take that long to be served. The soup that we chose was very delicious (sorry forgot the name) and the quantity was more than enough. I think it’s good for 4 persons. The best dish was the Coconut Honey Shrimp which we adored :) it was very yummy. The texture of coconut and honey together covering the huge shrimps was heavenly delicious. The prices were very reasonable.

The place is highly recommended everything is good about it, except the decoration. I didn’t like that much.

Thank you Ghaliah Team for the invitation <3

Book Review-The Maze Runner

DSC_5080

Okay, so now I’m back to reading, finally. I stopped reading for so many reasons; work became really hectic at the end of the year, then Ramadan came then I travelled then I came back home, and now I’m reading :) so here’s my review of this book.

If you liked The Hunger Games, then you may like this book and you may not. I’m having mixed feelings about it. I think the writer tried so hard to make it as good as the Hunger Games but somehow failed in few points. Like trying to make a unique language for the characters, nicknames and so. I kinda felt it was poor. The story though is intriguing with all the experiments, diseases and WICKEDness. It has a plot but it starts weak then it gets stronger.

While I was reading the book, I said to myself “I won’t read the other books,I’ll just watch the movies”, but after reading the last page I changed my mind and I’m hoping Book 2 will be much better. I hope the characters will develop and be stronger.

I’ve written about this account before and I’m still writing and will always write. It’s an instagram account that I enjoy looking at and exploring the new goods posted everyday. Remember Juju’s Birkin which I bought for her last year in Eid? Read Post and this year’s Juju’s Gerge’an outfit along with the head peace were from the same account Read Post. And this Eid I got Juju these Chiara Ferragni’s look alike loafers :D Aren’t they cute? Wallah I’m in love, I can’t wait for Juju to wear them.

I woke up around 3pm and as always, I tend to check instagram once I open my eyes in bed, I was scrolling down and voila, so many Chiara Ferragni loafers for babies and toddlers :) I immediately contacted the sweet lady and asked her to deliver them today before futoor asap and she did :D I’m so happy, I just love dressing Juju with the latest trends.
