Lost in Translation – Mr. Grosvenor House

H.G. sent me (stole for me) his friend’s DP on BBM about Grosvenor House sign in Dubai… Its translation in Arabic reads: “Mr. Grosvenor House” – Why “Mr.” LOL!!!!

27

My little sister told us once that there is something about the number, 27!

This number pops up everywhere she looks…. at least (YES! AT LEAST) once a day!

She would look at the time and it would be xx:27

She turns on the TV and there it is… the temperature in the weather forecast is 27

She would have a conversation with a someone she just met, and she’ll be like “How old are you?” the person would answer “27”

She buys a jeans… whats the total price? KD27!

I can go on and on about it…. she thought she was alone! The 27-everywhere-syndrome!

And then…. one day I meet Ahmed (who designed my new logo) and he branded his car and artwork with the number 27 – also he keeps the reason of his love to the number private, it is still there! 27!

Maryam, one of The Proteges I met last year – same story! The number 27! It does not stop there, she tells me the same story with one of the mentors in the program, Mr. Yarub!!!

I googled it and came across this Continue reading

The Recipe Exchange Experiment

My friend Dalal sent out a very interesting email titled “Recipe Exchange”! Its a concept in which you send out an email with a recipe to people that you may not even know… but in the end, if they all participate, you will end up with 36 recipes *I got two recipes so far and waiting for more to come ๐Ÿ˜€

I am thinking of trying all of the recipes I get and sharing them with you on my blog like this one here (link) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Kuwait’s 1st Social Media Forum – Day I

I was invited by Zain to attend Kuwait’s 1st Social Media Forum. Yesterday was the first day of the forum, which will last for four days and I will try to update you as much as I can…

The MC of the day was Mr. Omar AlOthman (@OmarAlothman)- veryย charismatic (even Mr. AlMutawa who took his place afterwards).

The event was fruitful and I enjoyed it so much… they talked about the social media tools, focusing mostly on Twitter.

We had many guest speakers for the day… Mr. Abdulrazag AlMutawa (@Razag_AlMutawa)ย and Mr. Nasser AlMutawa (@NasserAlmutawaa)ย – who both singled me out from the audience! That was hilarious and funny in the same time (Thank you guys) – I could not stop laughing for a minute or two LOL

They also played a short movie made by Zain team about Social Media… was kinda cool ๐Ÿ™‚

Later on more guest speakers got on stage after the break; Ms. Haya AlShatti (@hayaalshatti), Mr. Abdullah Boftain (@AbdullahBoftain), Mr. Abdulwahab AlEssa (@Awahab_Alessa), Dr. Abdullah AlMutawa (@DrAlmutawa), and Dr. Sajed AlAbdali (@DrSajed)

It was very interesting to hear different points of views, pros and cons, experiences, and much more!

Many of them gave examples of how useful Twitter is, specially with the weather crisis the day before – how some people stuck on the road got saved!

Every single speaker had his/her own way but all of’em were easy on the ears!

Thank you Mr. Mohammed AlMuhaini, of Zain, for inviting me to the event and providing me with the pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

The Conference of the Bird

A while back at the Baking Tray Cafe, I ran into one of my friends, Mohammed S. and as we were talking and catching up, he asked me if I heard about The Conference of the Birds book for Farah K. Behbehani (ู…ู†ุทู‚ ุงู„ุทูŠุฑ ู„ูุฑุญ ุจู‡ุจู‡ุงู†ูŠ).

According to Amazon, the book is written in the Continue reading
