Enough is enough

What happened in Gaza cannot be described in words.. it's a massacre.. and the world is standing still!

We may not have alot that we can do.. some may say this post is silly and doesn't help, but I think that with a simple post we can show the world what inhumane act Israel has took.. show them what they did under the cover of fighting "terrorism".

Never under estimate the power of words.

There is a reason why they didn’t make it to the future. Send this to everyone u don’t want to loose in 2009, including me, if u care. Try to collect12 it’s not easy”

Why do policemen enafsoon 7ail when they give a ticket!?

Walking down memory lane- Part 2

this box file showcases my pure love and affection towards..


yes, i used to love everything about football.. i knew all the players' names, which nady they played in, their t-shirt numbers.. everything..
i was better than most of the boys out there.. my cousins came to me for refrence!

i used to open the sports section bil jareedah everyday and cut out players' pics and organize them in my file.. 1st comes 9uwar jama3iyah for il munta5ab.. then individual pics of each player..

after that comes a whole section dedicated for nadey il Qadsiyah..

la7thaw il diqah fee rasm il shi3ar ;p

my love for them didn't stop there, i had the back of my door fully covered with posters of players that i used to take out from "il riyathy" magazine (yes, i used to buy that mag weekly!).. i was a hardcore Qadsiyah fanatic illy i even had this sticker saved for my future car!

adry, 7alty 9a3bah! heheh ;p

now i have no interest at all in football.. yimkin i only watch the world cup, that is if i have nothing to do ;p

Walking down memory lane- Part 1

Ever since i got married and moved out of my parent's house my mother always asks me to come and declutter my room oo take the rest of my stuff illy i left over there..

she does that bcoz she wants the room to be an extra room for my nieces and nephews, or coz she might break down the wall to expand il living room! ("3ashan entiwasa3" she says!!!).. well i'm sorry mom but that will never happen coz it was, still is, and will always be my room..

but every now and then i like to go through my old stuff.. i always find things that make me laugh or things that i compeletely forgot about..

i came across my collection of "alghaz" that i used to LOVE.. u know, ta5ta5 oo louza oo il majmoo3ah! i so wanted to be one of them.. to be ta5ta5 in precise 3ashan ohwa athka wa7id feehum ;p

i used to atbadal with my friends qi9a9hum.. i've read all the ta5ta5 alghaz i could find in kuwait! i bought them min maktabat that il salasil oo min a6las oo il3jairy where they put them fee very dusty arfuf outside.. i searched for them in every year's books exibition.. i even called il muwazi3 here in kuwait once to get my hands on the books i coudn't find! that's how addicted i was to them!

so addicted that i used to stay up past my bedtime and read them under the covers so that mom doesn't find out enny i'm still awake!
heheh! ... the good old times =)

i went to see the new 007 movie and guess what?!

a 4-6 months old girl was there "watching" the movie too!!!
la oo she was sitting right infront of me =/

la ya3ni come on!
why ya3ni why bring an infant to a movie?!

aside from the fact that her crying during the movie annoys me oo prevents me from enjoying il film, all that noise and loud sounds of bullets and machines crashing is not healthy for a baby!

oh and u parents..
if u have nowhere to keep ur child, do u really have to see the movie?!
doesnt't ur baby's safety concern u?!
oo ba3dain shame on u! having fun 3ala 7sab il other people illy bil cinema =@

some people are just too selfish..

If cats can laugh

.. then this kitty will be laughing her heart out!

i love cats.. alot.. ( i don't own one bcoz of the stupid allergies =/ )
i don't yell at them when i find them standing right behind my car wana ba6la3 min il garage..
i stop and honk the horn when suicidal cats cross the road at exactly the moment i pass by ( don't they always seem to do that?! ya3ni 7abakat eb hal la7tha etmureen?!)

i'm usually never mean to them.. until today!

there's this cat that always sits on top of hubby's old car.. oo kil ma eshoofha he throws an empty bottle near her 3alashan ti5tiri3 oo tgoom.. so today he was holding a half full bottle oo he was gonna throw what's left of it at the cat.. ana ehny eshta6ait.. "la la let me do it!"

JE tifta7 il bu6il oo tirfa3 eedhaa ab3ad ma yumkin (for the water to reach masafah ab3ad) oo etrish il maay eb kil quwat'ha..

3/4 the contents of the bottle was spilled on me oo il 1/4 il thany on the street oo wala 7attan 7ash il ga6wah!!!

6ab3an hubby MAT min il thi7ik while i immdediately start looking around checking if anyone was watching, with the right side of my shirt and jeans soaking wet..
on only that, but i managed to stain my fav eel skin bag.. a HUGE part of it got wet.. bs ashwa now that it's dry it doesn't show!

lesson learned: min 7afar 7ufra le a5eeh il ga6ow waqa3 feeha!

Um 3ali

One of the desserts that i really like (il sheraton does the best um 3ali i have ever tasted!) fa laman legait hal kind of easy recipe, oo dam il 6abaq waayd ramadhany, qarrart ajarbah..

all u need is :
4 guwa6y milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup coconut powder
1 can of condensed milk (the small size)
4 croissants, sliced bil nu9 then cut into like 4 pieces
pistachio(as much as u like)
1 1/2 tbs maay ward
2 gaimar kdd

to garnish:
1 tbs coconut powder
1 can of condensed milk (the small size)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup almond slices

start with pouring the milk in a large pan..

add the sugar and coconut powder..

1 can of the condensed milk,

cook until it's just starting to boil.. then take 1 1/2 cups and mix them with il gaimar..

in a bowl that u can put in the oven, place the croissant pieces, pour the rose water and the pistachio over them..

pour the milk illy min '3air gaimar 3alaih..

then the milk with the gaimar..

b3dain etrishoon il 1 tbs coconut powder foogah, oo u take the other can of condensed milk oo et9boonah foogah 3ala shakil 5yoo6.. etrishoon il cinammon oo etwaz3oonah eb a fork..

u put the slightly roasted almonds on top then u put it in the oven to cook for 40 minutes..

the result was very satisfactory..
6ab3an still la yu3la 3ala il sheraton's..

the recipe is from 3abeer il-rashid's "the gourmet 3" but i've altered it a bit.. coz my sis did it mithil ma ohwa maktoob bas 6ala3 too dry..

Sep 20, 2008


i have two of the bangle shown above in different colours.. i love that they actually fit perfectly and don't fall off when i put my hands down (believe me when i say thats a rare find!)

but there's a problem with them.. whenever i wear them i get a rash dayer madayer eedy minhum =S
i do have allergies min il accessories il 5arboo6a oo il mo real gold.. (bent il baik ma talbis illa il real deal ;p) bs usually that happens with earings oo sometimes chain necklaces.. but i never had a problem with bracelets and bangles until i wore those two bangles .. but since i love them so much, i don't mind the rash and wear them from time to time oo put some cortisone afterwards ;p

but i think i've found a solution!
i read somewhere enna "to prevent rings from leaving a green stain on ur fingers paint a sheer polish on the inside".. and that's when a light bulb popped above my head.. maybe it'll work with my bangles!

and so i gave it a shot!

i brought my essie top coat and paintied them from the inside..

a bit messy as u can see below but it won't show ;p

i still haven't given them a try,, but i'll test them later oo i'll let u know if it works.. hopefully it will =D

Update: i wore them yesterday.. and so far there is no rash.. yaaaaay! =D
