A 30 min walk along Shuwaikh's seafront

A couple sitting on a bench facing the sea.. heads close to each other.. watching a mobile screen held in the girl's hand.. when all of a sudden she stands up, throws the mobile on the floor (zain ma 7ashna!) and walks away from him angrily.. he follows her with a pleading look on his face as they pass us by to head to the dark parking lot.

An older couple sitting on the concrete fence with the man looking at his sinnara intently as if to encourage it to catch a fish while his wife impatiently pours him yet another cup of tea.

A group of 8 guys sitting in a circle on the sandy beach with one of them playing il 3ood and having a lousy little samra that no one seemed to enjoy except for themselves.

A man wearing only emkassar shouts as the cold water touches him while he wades in the water.. he seemed to be chalanged by his friends illi were standing on the shore laughing at him.

3 women in abaya's sitting on another bench.. one of them raises her mobile and gives the screen a long kiss and sighs while her friends look at her with what seemed like envy in her eyes.

A little girl giggling as she runs away from her brother who's trying to catch her.. even though it was 11:00 PM on a school day and u can't help but wonder why r they still not asleep.

Those were some of the diverse scenarios that passed me while walking at night along Shuwaikh's seafront.. an interesting night indeed!

Spring cleaning – Part 2

Illy ektishaf il space bags is a genius! Nuq6a!

I got me some when I was on a trip abroad from a store called " the container store" which has everything that u can think of when it comes to storing and organizing ur house. Everything u can imagine is there! It's like u died and went to Monica's heaven!!

I stored the winter clothes in those space bags and vacuumed the air out of them. What was a huge bulk was neatly slimmed down oo easily stored away leaving so much space for my summer wardrobe.

I wish someone brings this shop here to Kuwait. It's just so amazing!

Spring cleaning – Part 1

The past few days were hectic with me doing some spring cleaning and letting go of the clothes that have been hanging in there for more than two years without being touched once.

Parting away with some of my clothes was really hard! As much as I try to stick to that 2 years rule I can't help hesitating and thinking enna laaa I might need it later on.. fa usually I fail miserably in getting rid of them!

Bs this year was different. I came across words of wisdom that i found on a post on Re-nest that were so good it made me star that post for future refrence.

It said that u must practice SHED. Which is an abbreviation for "Separate the treasures, Heave the trash, Embrace your identity and connect to who you are without your stuff, and Drive forward"

So I wrote SHED on a paper and put it in front of me to motivate me everytime I had doubts, o it worked! i finally got rid of some of the items that i had for (gasp) 6 years!! =D

bye bye u once-upon-a-time loved pieces. hope u find a better home where u be of help to a person in need..
