I was sitting in the living room when I heard my door swing open. I thought it was teresa. called for her but no one replied. I went downstairs and saw a sand storm. I quickly locked up the door. Shut the windows and shutters. Called mimi to tell her to stay indoors (she was at a friend’s place). Then it started to rain so much. It hasn’t rained like this in ages. mashallah

Yesterday some workers took down our neighbour’s tree and in the next few days our trees will be cut down too. I saw many of our neighbours out of their homes looking at the mess caused by urbanization!Men shook their heads in sorrow. Others got their cameras out. Others refused to do anything about their gardens and cops were called on them.
Our back gardens don’t look the same anymore.
It has been robbed from its beauty …
It got so hot at night I couldn’t sleep. I wanted to turn the a/c on but it wasn’t cleaned so I was sweating all night long. Sadly it’s time to say goodbye to winter and welcome to summer.
Good things about this country:
1. It takes less than 5 min. to see a physician without taking a prior appointment.
2. Price of gas is cheap.
3. No taxes.
4. Bus fares are so cheap (150fils from Kuwait City to Farwaniya).
5. No charges on land line phones.
Ps. Salons are so cheap, ex. if you go to farwaniya you’ll find many salons who charge only 1 kd for any job done.
Bad things about this country:
1. Gyms are so expensive.
2. Lands are ridiculously overpriced.
3. We don’t have Barney.
4. Private education is very expensive.
5. Physicians prescribe antibiotics like candy.
Why boycott Danish products when we should really be boycotting KDD products, not only for raising their prices but for selling a pack of 40 mini juices (125ml) for the insane price of KD 3.400, while a pack of 24 regular juices (250ml) is sold for the price of KD 3.600. Silly silly silly!!!
I know co-ops have started boycotting them but I’m so disappointed with other places such as Sultan Centre because they continue to encourage such brands by buying their products. It shows they approve of their prices and consumers are the last thing on their minds …
Ate at nando’s today opss I meant yesterday. First time I had nando’s I was in Dubai. Food here is way better than Dubai. It was so tasty I left no crumbs! I had lemon and herb chicken sandwich. It’s the same order I always have when I eat there. We ordered the meditteranean and portuguese salads. Let me point out something here both are the same only difference one had feta cheese on top while the other didn’t but the dressing was not bad at all. I had chicken and mushroom soup for starters, I have to say it was the best I’ve ever had, really yummy just right. Prices were quite reasonable too. One thing I disliked about the whole place was how stuffy it was.
That’s their take-out menu
Nando’s – taken at 3pm
My order – chicken burger
I did go to the event but I didn’t stay too long. It was over-crowded it felt like Eid and Rami had a hard time finding a parking space and when we did it was 2:30pm! So we missed Imperial 27. I called Chika but the signal was so bad, I didn’t get to see anyone, all I saw was harakat bahlawaniyah!
Ps. Rami took the picture above.
