I woke up really early yesterday – I was in Kuwait City to take pictures for a client early in the morning! I passed by the grocery store, our local coop, to get some stuff….. so by the time I got back home it was around 8:00AM… I decided to prepare breakfast for dad and I, since I was home alone with him ๐Ÿ˜‰

My aunt sent us Girs Egaili (ู‚ุฑุต ุนู‚ูŠู„ูŠ) the other day – a traditional Kuwaiti cake… It was the trigger to prepare such breakfast actually, what goes well with it… and I went from there ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I added Darabeel (ุฏุฑุงุจูŠู„) or what I call, Kuwaiti dry cinnamon rolls ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I sliced a multi-grain French bread….

Darabeel goes well with hot Continue reading

My friend Manal snapped those couple of pics last March during the sand storm.. I thought they were worth sharing! Scary :S

Souq Albuzooriyah – Syria

On my second day in Damascus (last February) I had the grand tour with a local! My friend Sandra was going out of town and she arranged a day trip for me in Old Damascus alleyways with her driver…ย He is actually from Old Damascus… he knows the alleyways really well – lucky me to have someone like Sandra who arranged for it all AND for Mohammed, my amazing tour guide for taking the time to take me to this tour in the old city – I had a great time that day!

He picked me up from the hotel! We headed to Old Damascus, parked the car outside The Khan (click here, here, and here for a full review of The Khan), and we walked around in the alleys!

We started of with Souk Albuzooriyah (ุณูˆู‚ ุงู„ุจุฒูˆุฑูŠุฉ) – a famous historical market located to the south of Umayyad Mosque. The souq is consisted of different vendors selling all kinds of spices, herbs, herbal medications, handmade soaps, dried fruit, candies, coffees, and much much more!

During my two weeks stay I have visited this market numerous times snapping different pictures each time I go

So it is basically a post FULL of pictures… and as the saying goes; “A picture is worth a thousand words” so let me take you into a Continue reading

More on The Royal Weddings

Here is Salwa AlMutairi’s very special way of congratulating the Royal Bride and Groom! She is planting a special palm tree on the occasion and Thanking Prince William for respecting Friday! Hmmmm

Oh and announcing that she now have a YouTube Channel (link)

Thanks Mariam A. ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOL – Thanks Mimmi ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

I also took some pictures and info from Ali AlArbash Sonย Jewelers Facebook Page ย (link)

What was her โ€œsomething newโ€?ย The earrings worn by Princess Catherine, as she is now called.ย A gift from her parents, the drop earrings were shaped like oak leaves with a pave diamond acorn suspended in the middle. Sister Pippa wore a similar pair, both sets were made by Robinson Pelham, and said to be inspired by the Middleton familyโ€™s new coat of arms, which includes oak leaves and acorns

Kate chose to wear the Cartier โ€œHaloโ€ tiara, which was made in 1936 and purchased by the Duke of York (later King George VI) for his wife, Elizabeth’s mother (also Elizabeth). Queen Elizabeth received it as an 18th-birthday present, at which time she was Princess Elizabeth. The delicate headpiece, which is as understated as a headband of diamonds can be, was lent to Kate by the Queen

The Leaning House on Med’hat Pasha – Syria

I first got the grand tour of Old Damascus alleyways (ุญุงุฑุงุช ุฏู…ุดู‚ ุงู„ู‚ุฏูŠู…ุฉ) with Mr. Mohammed – one of Sandra’s staff members (Sandra, ofย The Khan), who is actually from those alleyways… So I was lucky enough to get this tour from a local! Now I got hooked, I just go there and try to get lost from one alleyway to another… its just beautuful

Anyways… while we walked to Med’hat Pasha St, he told me to check this house out…

Its a leaning house with people still living in it ๐Ÿ˜‰

An interesting site… not to be missed while walking towards Med’hat Pasha market from the main road ๐Ÿ˜‰
