From Our Lives: Salhiya Cobblestone Nightmare


One of the things I really love to wear as I have mentioned before is High Heels, but stopped wearing them to work because of an incident here . My office in the city is in a walking distance from Salhiya Complex , walking from the office to Salhiya in heels is not the problem , Its the darn cobblestone used  in the street between were the Parking entrance and the Mall entrance. Its one hell of a nightmare. I wish they reconsider realigning the road just like the mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno.

Want to know what I'm talking about , read here

From Our Lives: The Bird Poo Yard


Welcome to my everyday disgusting, filthy, smelly, slippery and annoying encounter. The Pigeon yard where I have to cross everyday from the car parking lot to the office. I am an animal lover and I have nothing against these Pigeons, but it has gone way too far. The shops at the soog, next to the my office building, sell bags of food for these Pigeons and every other day I see people bringing their kids and feed the Pigeons. The result of all the feedings of course a filthy place covered with the Pigeon poo. 

I really , really , really miss my Heels , yes I love wearing heels but stopped wearing them to work :'( , because one time I slipped , I bet you know because of what, and broke one of the heels.

From Our Lives: The Flat Tire




Years and years have passed and I have always taken the same rout to work even when I switched my job . I wake up early so I do not get caught in Traffic, because it stresses me out a lot and I really do not need that at work. Everyday there is  someone parked in the safety lane weather they have a car problem , an accident or  changing a flat tire. I have prayed not to have any of these happening to me , well who wants anyway, but the inevitable happened.
 
A flat tire  and at 4 PM, just finished work and heading home after a long hectic day at the office. I have never thought of that. I stopped in the safety lane , stepped out of the car and stared at the tire, I had no clue how to change it so my only option was to call home for help. Honestly I did not think that anyone would atop to help, it was hot and sunny, and everyone just wants to mind their own business. As I was about to make the call a car pulled over , a guy stepped out and asked what was wrong  and I answered him its a flat tire, and he offered help , but I did not want him to change it, because I know its a messy thing to do and he must have had some place to go or something to do, but he insisted  and ended up changing the tire ( wallah fashlah ). All I can say thank you a billion .

The Dead Tire

Music: Sade - Soldier Of Love

Food: Khanfaroosh


Khanfaroosh is a traditional sweet like a cake from the gulf made with cardamom and saffron. I tired the Khanfaroosh but this time with a twist , its covered with chocolate, made by kuwaiti girls. They make a great companion with coffee which is my favorite hot drink or even tea.

The small box contains a half Kilogram for KD7.500 and the large a full kilo for KD15 ( Love the packaging)




The yummy treats wrapped like candy
There are two different color wraps because there two types one with coconut and the other without but both covered with chocolate.




All I can say is that I could eat the whole box .

If you like this kind of sweets you can place your order by calling : 67701052

Food: McDonald's Delivery Service


One of the advantages of working  in the city is that we get what ever we want delivered to us with just a phone call . My favorite fast food restaurant McDonald's only offers Delivery Services in the City. so today as usual our breakfast menu was McDonald's . The food always arrives fresh and hot ready to be devoured.

My friend and I only had these babies ( yes only hash browns). My only issue when we want to order from McDonald's is that we have to call several times before they pick up the phone. If you have to happen work in the heart of the city and want them to deliver to your office call: 22472221.

Celebritiez: Truth or Dare by Madonna



Madonna has launched her first-ever fragrance, Truth or Dare, Thursday night at Macy's New York. She wore a black Dolce & Gabbana dress and black peep toe Christian Louboutins.



I wish she hadn't wore peep toe shoes ,closed pumps would have been great .  If she really wanted to wear these shoes why, I can't understand, why she didn't hire a pedicurist  to do her feet while doing the make up and hair. To know what I'm talking about scroll down.



Food: The Spice Club

One of the things I like about my job is that they give you your Birthday off and since my birthday was yesterday which is a holiday I got today off so I had a three day weekend how awesome. My parents, my baby brother and I went to 360 Mall at around 11 AM and the mall surprisingly was not as quit as I expected.
