Java Detour – AlBida’a

A while back, Java Detour opened another branch in AlBeda’a (their first branch is in Kuwait City).

It is located in AlBeda’a new Arjan extension right next to Melanzane. I loved it so much that I made it my new stop for all meetings I have in the afternoon. I also met a couple of my friends a couple of weeks back there… and I was able to snap a couple of pictures at that time 😉

I must say that I am in love with their Ethiopian roast (their signature), iced tea, soy lattes, and I also like their avocado chicken salad!

Fresh food, aromatic great coffee, and friendly staff!


My friend Alfa+ sent me an email full of pictures taken at the Papabubble candy factory. Ever since I received that email, we could not stop thinking about those candies… so I went ahead and ordered some for us online from New York. The price of which was okay, but the shipping was ridiculously expensive, although I was warned by the store owner – who was super nice and very friendly Thanks Fiona 😉 – I ordered them anyways… SO GOOD!

As you can see, I ordered two kinds of candies; fruit and NY

We used to have those in Kuwait back in the day… the size was a bit bigger if I am not mistaken, but I cant find them anymore… any idea where I can get those from? Oh and below are some Continue reading

Napket’s Lychee Icy Yogurt!

A while back I posted about Baskin Robbings Lychee ice cream flavor in Bangkok… I was hoping we can get something similar here in Kuwait! I guess my prayers been answered 😉 Napket introduced Lychee Icy Yogurt a while back (and I forgot to post about – but its never too late)

I loved the exotic taste! It was as good as ice cream only its healthier 😉 I am happy to say that lychee and frozen yogurt make a good couple 😛

Out of Town ;-)

Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop a quick hello to you all… so “HELLO” 😉 and tell you that I am currently not in Kuwait. I am on vacation (and have been for the past few days) and will be back in December! That is why I am not replying to email and blog contact messages in a timely manner! I have prepared few posts here and there for you (as you can see) but will try to update you with more once I get the chance to 😉

Till then, have a good one!


Eid’s Eve Chez Amna ;-)

I love those outings where one of my friends would call and ask “What are you doing RIGHT NOW? Do you wanna hang out” – where we end up doing basically nothing, but sit back and relax at either my or her house! I have a few friends whom I keep doing this with and we end up having the greatest times ever! On Eid’s eve, my friend Amna called and was like… “Wanna have green tea at my house?” I was in… with effortless look, sweats and flip-flops… I grabbed some fruit flavor (mango, strawberry, and lemon with mint) Gelato Italiano I got from my friend Dalal (of Gelato Italiano) and headed there.

I got in there while she was busy painting a corkboard frame…. she set it aside and we sat down by the pool… enjoying red velvet cupcakes, ice cream, green tea, biscuits… and a GREAT company!

I just love those random out-of-nowhere outings!

Gelato Italiano New Flavor – Peanut Butter <3

My very kind friend, Dalal, always spoils me with ice cream from her store… She would send me endless samples, and few kilos of ice cream here and there every now and then! She would also take the extra mile sometimes when I am not feeling well, pass by my office, pick me up on my break and treat me to some gelato! How can I not LOVE this girl!

Well anywhoooo… she got me some last week; a box of chocolate, biscotto (her favorite), and their new flavor ❤ Peanut Butter ❤ (read more about it here)

To order, visit their branch in Sharq on Ahmed AlJaber – St. Gaz Tower. Their tel # is 22434434

Thanks Dalal 😉

Eid Cakes by Mimmi

Check out those cute cute cakes done by my sister Mimmi 😉 – Actually, they’re to cute to be eaten but we ate’em LOL

She said making cakes, decorative ones, is her new hobby and she doesnt know how long it will last (I hope she does not stop – Mimmi, DONT lol)

She started off last May when she made some Sushi mini cakes for my birthday at Edo (link)

She made another for our friend’s birthday not too long ago

She also made one last month for my sister’s birthday, and it was a BIG hit (link)

Love you Mimmi ;-*
