I <3 Froobie & Choowy Goowy Cafe

Every time I go to 52 Degrees (every single time) I have to get myself a medium size cup with two side-by-side icy yogurt flavors from froobie!

First time it was watermelon and peach

Second time it was watermelon and original – I ordered espresso this time too (check out the cute cup) and LOVED it… I think they use illy coffee if I am not mistaken! One of my favorites ❤

And last night it was again watermelon and Continue reading

Human Rights Watch – Walls at Every Turn

I was invited to attend the Human Rights Watch press conference a couple of days back to talk about their newly published report on human right abuses faced by migrant domestic workers in Kuwait, highlighting the sponsorship system in Kuwait. The representative of Human Rights Watch; Sarah Leah, Nisha Varia, and Priyanka Motaparthy talked about the topic giving brief description of the region with some stats on their organization, the problem itself, findings, problems, and suggestions. They also opened the floor for Q&A at the end.

So lets focus on Kuwait now…. All in all, Kuwait is a country with Continue reading

Should Ladies Get Special Treatment(s)?

Okay so ladies dont go on all attacking me for betraying my own kind here, but I didnt see this right! First 360DEWAN posts about Ladies Cashier, showing special cashier lines for disabled and another for ladies!

And then someCONTRAST posted about Ladies ONLY Parking!!

Now let me explain my point of view here!

There are special treatments for the elderly and for the disabled… and those with special needs, right? So are we ladies in need of such special treatment? Seriously? And a separate parking for ladies?

What happened to us calling for equality and women’s rights? So do we need specially tailored women rights? Come on!!

I can see this leading to bigger mess and creating problems rather than solving. What if a man is with his wife doing their grocery, he would go get the car and ask her to stand in the less crowded ladies line? What if a woman is there with her son? Same goes for the parking… I can go on and on and on!!!

And in the end, when in Mecca, the holiest Islamic spot on earth, we see men and women performing Umra and Hajj in the same place at the same time with no segregation!

Whadya think?

Different Words – Same Message!

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet.

He held up a sign which said:

“I am blind, please help”

There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man walking by took few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat.

He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words.

He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up.

A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.

That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.

The boy recognized his footsteps and asked,

“Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?”

The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.”

What he had written was: Continue reading
