Ramadan gifts are one of the things we await because they’re filled with lots of delicious goodies. One of these gifts i’ve received from the people of Dean and Deluca. The basket was really huge and heavy and wrapped with D&D blue ribbon. I was so excited opening it and exploring the things inside that basket.
You can win my heart with Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar, these two are precious to my heart, just add sun dried tomatoes and you have a sexy meal. There were also coffee and green tea *yum*, delicious chocolate bars with rose and pistachio, and filled dates and baklava :D yuuummmmyy
You can find all these things at D&D, their Baklava is very delicious and light. And you can enjoy Fotoor or Sohoor in their Avenues branch.
The perfect Ramadan gift basket:D Thank you guys
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.
Juju and I matched clothes :D
Lots of funny gifts for our guest :D
The rgag bread lady
and I won :D
I’ve always heard of this place and have been wanting to try it but didn’t get the chance. In the last week, before closing schools, we decided (teachers) to go out and have breakfast together. We decided to try Breakfast Club Fintas branch because it was closer. The place was very very small and crowded, but we managed to secure 2 tables for 4 persons. The service, quality, quantity, and prices were perfect but one thing we didn’t like,,,all plates were broken from the edge, we asked them to change our plates but they kept bringing us broken plates, it seemed that almost all of the plates were broken which was kinda disappointing. I wish they’d pay more attention to such thing because their food is really amazing.
The whole breakfast turned out as a surprise from my colleagues for my 31st birthday :D I was speechless, it was a very nice surprise. I love you guys :*
Verdict: Delicious, loved the raspberries.
Verdict: It was good, the mango sauce added a lovely flavour to the whole thing
Halloumi Club Sandwich
Verdict: Not a fan of Halloumi but this one was ok.
English Muffin Egg Benedict
Verdict: A must try,,,HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Verdict: OMG, this one was the winner, a dish I never expected to be THAT delicious, highly recommended.
مبارك عليكم الشهر
Thanx http://couchavenue.com for the avatar :*

I’ve actually never heard of it before but my sister has and she knows it’s delicious. Last week I’ve received this dessert platter from @Nestle_Coffee1 instagram account. I was skeptical of trying this platter because it’s sweet and salty at the same time but i’m into trying new things, why not?
It was really good and delicious, yet very very heavy, 2 fingers are more than enough. This dish is delicious for your Ramadan gathering specially after Iftar, you’ll need all the extra sugar :P
Thank you Nestle_Coffee
I’ve received 4 cans of Good Night drink from @GoodNightArabia and @Ghaliah to introduce me to this new drink hitting our K-Town. The drink doesn’t make you sleep, it makes your sleep relaxed. I’ve tried it the first day and didn’t feel anything, but on the second day, I felt my sleep was more relaxed and good,,,lately i’ve been having troubles in my sleep, so this one helped a bit.
The taste isn’t bad, it’s like a fruity soda…This drink has a plant in its ingredients that helps you be more relaxed, it doesn’t make you sleep (again). And it might help you and it might not help you, depends on your body.
Finally, it’s the first weekend that’s not a real weekend, for us teachers of course. I can’t believe it’s finally summer holiday :D It has been a very stressful academic year trying to prove myself to everyone and doing lots and lots of tasks at the same time not wanting to say no to anyone (bad). But it was totally worth it because I got what I wanted. The love of almost everybody (LOL some hate me and i know who). I was able to prove myself to the school administration and to my supervisor, which was very hard at first but then it got easier because they knew who I was.
The year was very difficult because I had to do new tasks, teach 6th grade which was very difficult especially when teaching them new grammar :S A.C. wasn’t working so it was something unbelievable for both students and teachers, proctoring and correcting exams … etc.
Now, i’ll relax and sleep more and wait for my next trip (coming very soon). I really can’t wait for this one, won’t tell you about it now, just wait for it :D
A couple of days ago, I received a very nice and so-elegant Ramadan Gift from Atyab Almarshoud and Ghaliah Technology. I was very happy just looking at it because it lots and lots of goodies (our, bukhoor etc).
Everybody knows Atyab Almarshoud, I really don’t have to mention who they are and how long they’ve been in the market or so> Their goods are really good. So if you’re looking for a decent, elegant and beautiful Ramadan gift for your loved ones, head to Atyab Almarshoud and choose one, they have a variety of Ramadan gifts.
I came upon this instagram account called @FreshMozzarella that sells fresh mozzarella cheese all the way from Italy. You order, wait a week, and then pick up your order the very next day after its arrival. The cheeses looked tempting and I’ve been seduced to try some of them, so I ordered the Stracciatella, Burrata, and Burratina cheese. My order came around KD 13/-. Somehow too much for only 3 kinds of cheeses but who cares, they’re coming all the way from Italy and I’m in the mood to have some :D
I’ve been informed via whatsupp that my order is ready for pick up, went immediately to the address and picked up my order. I received it at night so I didn’t get the chance to try any of them until the next morning when I had one Burratina for breakfast …. OMG :D It was delicious…I added my own sauce (Olive oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Honey and Fresh Rosemary), some tomatoes, lettuce, and toasted toast fingers in the oven. Yum Yum,,,,one of the most delicious breakfast I’ve ever had at home.
I kept experimenting with other cheeses. The stracciatella was really good when added with fried eggplants over toasted toasts, that was really good. The Burrata was very big unlike the Burratini (small version).
They are fresh, healthy, delicious, and can be eaten in any way you like,,,very easy to create a recipe for them.
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.
On the night of Italy’s match against England, I received italian flag semi-pizza (mashrouha) from Manousha. They’re having this special dish just for the FIFA World Cup. Each country has its own special mashrouha, each mashrouha differs from the other. From the taste to the colours.
The Italian Flag mashrouha was delicious and yummy, also very light. The country’s mashrouha is available on the night of the match. You can order it and enjoy a special night with your family or friends supporting your team :D
Thank you Manousha.
Last week, was the official opening event for Vapiano Kuwait and it was organised by both Obai and Hill company from Bahrain and Ghalia Tech from Kuwait. I received a mini rosemary plant as an invitation to the opening event and was really looking forward for it. As always, I arrived early because I hate taking photos when it’s crowded, i feel uncomfortable doing it with lots of faces surrounding me. Gotta say it got crowded fast, but it was after I’ve finished taking photos :D
The concept of Vapiano is self service, even paying your bill. You get a card, order from the stations they have; Pasta, Salad, Pizza etc and in each station there’s a machine where you swipe/scan your card in it after ordering and it will charge/add the price of your order in it. After you finish eating, you take your card to the cashier, pay and then leave. When we tried it, it was lots of fun, I really loved it.
The food was great. Tried a new kind of pasta, the name was kinda difficult to pronounce but it was delicious. It was called Pollo Picante (just checked their menu online), it was made with orange chili sauce, amazzzzzing, i really loved it. We also got to try 2 kinds of pizzas, Margarita which as soft, tender and light, and we also tried the Bruschetta one, it was the best. Try the dishes i’ve mentioned if you’re into Italian food, you’ll love it.
Our host was Ascia, she was very sweet and easy to talk to. Thank you all for a very beautiful night.
