Caribou’s New Logo

Back in March, 4thRing Road posted about Caribou Changing their logo, but a couple of days back I read more about it in AlRai Newspaper (link) .

Besides what the 4th Ring Road explained -that the the new design incorporates many elements that relate to the brand.. i.e. the Caribou body is a coffee bean, the antlers make a โ€œCโ€, and the shield is like a park sign- The caribou is now facing right which shows-according to AlRai- reflects a brighter vision to the future ahead for the company. Plus his color now is closer to the coffee bean color (deep brown)! The blue shield is in fact inspired from a National Park – Denali in Alaska to be specific, a park that I have been to in 1998 ๐Ÿ˜‰

So which logo do you like more?

BT Date Muffins <3

My friend Alia wanted to have a brunch at her house, and she was out of time and ideas so I suggested she get stuff such as muffins, bread loafs, sandwiches…etc from Baking Tray. I did not specify anything except for the cookies. She went ahead and did the order – Next day she tells me about Baking Tray Date Muffin! I have never tried this muffin, but kept day dreaming about it in the office all morning till I decided I have to give it a shot… and I did ๐Ÿ˜‰ – THANK YOU ALIA!! I am now going almost daily just to get this muffin!! LOL – I blame you and thank you at the same time ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let me tell you something about me.. I am more of a cookie person than I am for muffins & cakes, I actually am a SUCKER FOR COOKIES that I have been nicknamed “Cookie Monster” since a very young age hehehe. This muffin is another story now!! Another thing about me is that I have always hated dates and anything with dates. My dad tried so hard throughput the years to make me love it but only manged to few years ago! Why did I hated dates without even trying them? They are SO GOOD!!! So good that I feel sorry I hated’em all those years… now back to the subject – Baking Tray Date Muffins….

They are fabulous! Golden brown in color, topped with some actual date shred, and with date rich content. I usually eat muffin tops but I eat this whole sucker! It became my daily snack at work! Hell yeah, I packed some for home because I kept talking about it and my sister wanted to try some – she also -not a cake person- fell in love with’em!

Still soft and yummy the next morning!

They are dangerously addictive!!

Baking Tray is located in Burj Mishaal in Sharq and their tel # is 22251544 (Map)

Thank you Hamad, my sister’s friend ๐Ÿ˜‰

Special Parking for Pregnant Ladies

I

My twitter buddy @A_AlBaDDaH snapped this picture in Discovery Mall! I find it really nice since the mall is directed towards a specific audience/segments (families with kids) and its way better than having special parking for being a lady! A pregnant lady can get a special treatment, no? ๐Ÿ˜‰
