I received an invitation from the lovely Sarah Alsaleh to attend the opening of Orogold 4th branch in Kuwait which was at Symphony Mall. I arrived late to the opening because i had to wait for Juju to wake up and then for my aunt to come and sit with her at Missoni Hotel to my luck they were running a bit late so I didn’t miss a thing.
The store was a bit spacious, it has 2 rooms for customers’ facials but not more than that. They also have all their products available in store and if you want to know about any products, the ladies will help you for sure. I will be trying their facial soon in Hilton Resort-Almangaf and I will let you know how it went.
Breakfast: 3 slices of brown baguette bread, white cheese, tomato, cucumber and yogurt with mint.
Lunch: meat kofta with grilled carrot and peanuts soup.
Snack: Blueberry french toast.
Dinner: Mushroom Frittata and all red salad with greens
I’m a big fan of this Japanese brand which is available in Kuwait in The Avenues phase 2 owned by Al-Ostora. Whenever I go shopping I head there because I always find suitable clothes for me. And they are very colourful and beautifully designed.
When I was shopping in this bookstore in Hong Kong, I came across this diary that was had the brand name, I was like “Yess, that’s I what I want to have”. I bought it for now reason, I just have a thing for Chisato. I kept it with me not knowing what I’d be doing with it later on, but when I started dieting and I mean it this time, I thought why not use it as a diary log and keep all my records in it. Write when are my cheek ups with my dietician and how much I’m losing and so on. It sounded as a good idea.
I’ve just started using it and it’s so elegant from the outside and the inside. I’m loving the feeling of writing on it
The 3rd and last phase of the 21 days detox challenge with Diet Center started today. The phase will last for 3 days, so we are almost done. Saturday will be the last day and on Sunday I will write a report of my experience with the detox and what happened during this challenge.
The last phase will include meat, chicken, bread, and cheese with with mini portions until the body starts getting used to them after a long break. I gotta say I was kinda waiting for this phase because I missed eating chicken and bread.
Breakfast: 2 cheese balls, rice cakes, coffee, green tea and citrus juice which I didn’t like.
Lunch: Brown rice with quinoa and goat cheese salad with eggplant and beetroot salad (delicious).
Snack: Strawberry cheesecake
Dinner: Chicken with mushroom sauce and baked potato, and chickpea salad.
Coming home from work to find this amazing personalised gift from one of our dear friends. A tea thermos with my name on it aver Karak. Karak is an Indian Chay with Milk and lots of sugar. You can add to cardamom or whatever you want. I honestly don’t know how to do it, but I love drinking it. Before, I wasn’t a fan, but then I started loving the taste.
The tea thermos was full of Karak. My whole family went nuts over it, they almost finished it before I had the chance to taste it, thank god I managed to take 2 sips (remember I’m currently on a strict diet). It was really yummy, full of tasty aroma. The gift also had Or chocolates which I didn’t touch but I kept it in the fridge so I can eat it next Sunday (my free day )
Thank you my dear Hiba for this lovely gift :*

I received a beautiful yummy invitation full of delightful things to fill my hungry tummy with. Unfortunately, I couldn’t touch any of the sent stuff because I’m on a detox program, I’m saving it for my free day which is coming very soon nshallah
The official opening event was almost 2 weeks ago. I went there early because I was really busy that day, unfortunately the event didn’t start until later on when I left. I managed to take few pictures of the place but I honestly don’t have much to say except that we all know how Lotus biscuit tastes like, even Baby Jana became addicted to it. Every day she eats 2 fingers

Our last stop was Bangkok. We stayed in it for a couple of days, a kinda long transit before we go back home. I’ve never been to this city before but my husband has. He didn’t recommend the city because it’s dirty, crowded and full of Arabs, but we had to stay in it, we didn’t have a choice. I suggested we visit the floating market because I’ve always wanted to see how it’s there, buy from them and get to feel the atmosphere. We had to make use of our 2 days stay.
We arrived late at night, so we headed to bed. We woke up early in the morning, had breakfast and got ready for our long car trip to the floating market. Almost 1:30 hrs by car. We reached the place where you take the boat and head to the market, I was surprised to see Thai people speaking Arabic, my husband wasn’t. We got the boat and headed to the market.
The water was very polluted, don’t even think of putting your hand in it :S but the boat was fine, we got the whole boat for ourselves. Our guide/boat rider did a good job in giving us a tour around the market, took almost 2 hrs. The market was big, so many alleys and places to go through and stop by, I loved how he parked the boat near the shops when we wanted to buy things
Thai people were very friendly and full of joy and humour. I loved dealing and talking with them. I haven’t seen one Thai man angry or not in the mood, all of them had this vivid spirit. Even when you bargain with them, they make you laugh hysterically My husband knew how to deal with them and how to make them lower the price with a huge smile on their face.
This trip was so much fun, I felt like we’ve achieved something in our short stay. The floating market is a must visit if you’re staying in Bangkok for few days.
This was the end of our short yet amazing trip. Until we take off again, stay safe.
After Macau, we went back to Hong Kong International Airport to fly to Bangkok and stay their for 2 days and then back home. This time, we wanted to try the suits on Emirates A380 which so many of you have heard about. The flight was already booked 3 months ago so we got a pretty good deal. I was really looking forward for this flight, even though it was short but we had so much fun. The feeling was so overwhelming that I didn’t wanna leave the plane. I still remember every moment on it, the excitement, the joy, the feeling of so much luxury was cool.
We stayed 3 hours in the huge lounger of Emirates airlines, and I don’t have to talk about the quality of the food, yum yum. The service was very good, staff were friendly and everything we needed was there.
When we entered the plane, the air hostess welcomed us and showed us the way to our suits (it feels so good saying it ). As you can see in the pictures, the seat or the suit was really huge, only 16 seats in the first class. The door closes with a remote control on your side and no one can see you, so if you were a lady with veil, you can take it off and sleep comfortably. The food was so fine, as if you were dining in a hotel and Oh the toilets, they were really big and spacious, both had a shower (for long flights).
I really enjoyed my time on this flight and would love to go on it again in the near future.
After walking for probably more than an hour, we reached this alley where we kept on going up until we saw the wall of St. Paul Ruins which I’ve seen only in google and as I mentioned earlier didn’t know how to get there but it was a mere coincidence. The place was crowded with tourists, people from every where came from all over the world to visit this sacred place (to them).
We went up the stairs thinking there will be something, all we saw tombs of I-don’t-know-who because the sun was really sharp, it was hot and I wasn’t in the mood to go around the tombs reading to whom it belonged but we enjoyed the view from up there, it was just beautiful seeing Senado Square from the top and the tiny people
Breakfast: Rice cakes with Zaatar, orange juice, green tea, coffee.
Lunch: Sweet & sour fish with vegetables and Squashed Lentil soup.
Snack: All berries salad
Dinner: Bamia with brown rice and Orange salad
