Childhood in Q8 Means: Katakeet Arth El Ma3areth!

It’s the Weekend! So time for some happy nostalgia! Ever since i could remember… whenever it was time for the Food Exhibition at Mishref… it meant we had to go look at those little chicks (ketakeet in q8y) and marvel at their cuteness… then my siblings & my cousins would get a box each and i would scream bloody murder -im frightened of them until now- and they would go home to play with them and within one week they would all be dead 😦

I remember there used to be colorful ones… pink and blue and green… but my mom and aunts would complain about the poor chicks and how they were mistreated by dousing them in color that would eventually kill them… now adays  i don’t see much colored katakeet which i guess is a good thing

The last time i was at the exhibition… i couldn’t stop my self… the memories are too strong and they are just SO CUTE… and they go wee9 wee9 wee9 😀 if only they didn’t scare me so much and they didn’t smell so bad 😀

See how cute?

    I was wondering why they didn’t survive for long! Could be the paint…
