If Your BMI is More Than Healthy!

I am not sure about you, but I am not finding it clear…

“If your BMI is more than healthy please pick up one leaflet”

Something is not right… no?

Ghetra Stand

I saw the above ad somewhere and I saved it. I wanted to get one for my dad. Shortly after my sister got it for him! Great minds think alike 😉

I asked my dad yesterday about it and he said he likes it a lot 🙂 I think its great to have guys!

Recommended – Kabab Ji Lahme Baajeen

Kabab-Ji‘s Lebanese Lahme Baajeen (small) – AKA Safayeh. One order is a dozen of small soft flat bread topped with specially spiced ground beef and wrapped in like tacos, and it taste SO GOOD! Price? KD1.400

I sometimes prepare a yogurt/cucumber dip as a complimenting dish to this order! Try the two together… hmm hmm GOOD!

To place an order, call 1861616

Al Jazeera Perfumes

I love Al Jazeera Perfumes… specially their Montale Perfumes line; Black Oud, Pure Gold, and Rose Musk. I go in and spend LOTS of money there, and I could not help but notice how stingy they are with gifts… unlike other stores, specially Al Qurashi, who in my humble opinion are the kindest with discounts and gifts!

Oh well… that does not change the fact that Al Jazeera perfumes are amazing! Too bad they are out of (and will discontinue) Al Jazeera 3, the best out of 5 – again- in my humble opinion! Gotta go check if other branches still carry the last bottles of #3! Why on earth do they want to discontinue it! I LOVE it 😦

Caribou Coffee Daily Trivia

Whenever at Caribou, I always try to answer their Daily Trivia 100 fils off questions! I always end up making them laugh!

I know its just 100 fils, but its just so much fun for me to tease them about it and how I earned it… I really do take my time in answering specially when there is no waiting line. So do you know the answer to this one? My sister was with me and she helped… yes, she guessed it right with their hints.

But really… all of Caribou staff at all branches I have been to in Kuwait are so friendly and full of smiles 🙂 Dont you agree?

BONUS QUESTION: What did I order that day -FOOD wise-?

Post Wedding Breakfast

We stayed till almost dawn that night! I was exhausted, happy but exhausted…. I did not sleep till it was around 5:00AM! Yeah, I got home, took a warm shower, changed, and after 60+ bobby pins I got to sleep, just to be wide awake at around 8:45AM! Grrrrrrr!

I switched on my phone and checked my text messages, then I sent a big thank you to our BlackBerry group of girls… I was hungry and asked if anyone was up for breakfast at Dean & Deluca or Au Bon Pain! Two of my friends were up for it, I picked one up while the second decided to meet us there! We ended up at Au Bon Pain since Dean & Deluca was full… I heard so much about this place and their bagels. So of course, I ordered a bagel sandwich with black coffee

Honey multi grain bagel, with emmental cheese, poached egg, turkey, and a hint of mustard spread on one side. It took me for ever to explain my order that I had to repeat it like three or four times. It came out really good, although it was more than just a “hint” of mustard spread, I loved it so much! My friend ordered the roast beef sandwich from their menu

She also had to repeat her order quite a few times. Her order wasnt custom made like mine, it was just straight of the menu and still had to repeat it a couple of times. My other friend opted for Parmesan bagel with turkey, cheese, and mushrooms. She also asked them to have it toasted

At first her order got to her with poached eggs, and it wasnt toasted so they took it back and fixed it… she also had to explain it few times.

All in all, the food and the bagels were really good, but the staff have an attention span problem! They really cannot concentrate for a full minute. They kept interrupting us before we finish and still got mixed up! Our total came to around KD11.

Anyways… we later on went to Dean & Deluca. We met the new manager and managed to get a table out!

When we asked for the check, they said its been taken care of for that I am a very loyal customer! Although I insisted to pay, they would not take no for an answer… How can I NOT love Dean & Deluca! Gotta love their customer service and for them to recognize their loyal ones is just great ❤

518 Hotel Room

A lot of our family members from Dubai joined in last weekend to celebrate my little sister’s wedding with us! And guess what? One of them snapped this picture of their hotel room just for me ❤

Reminded me of our room in Mecca last year!

Thanks Saroona 😉
