How are you spending this New Year’s Eve?

With 4 days left to go i have absolutely no idea what to do this new year eve… i usually am in London this time of year celebrating by staying home and having a good meal and watching telly… i used to love the idea of celebrating in a restaurant that is until i realized the food they serve is too overpriced and uncustomizable to my needs and somehow the service deteriorates and the food is less appetizing than usual and you end up cranky rather than enjoying your time so i stopped.

How will you be celebrating this new year’s eve? I really wanted a nice family gathering with a good BBQ outdoors and people enjoying their time and eating till midnight. SInce that is not going to happen i think i’ll settle on utilizing the roof top of our house by putting my chair there and having something really good to eat… i am wishing on a mini vegetarian friendly BBQ for one person (aka chai o kastana o qer9 moqla) to follow afterwards… sitting down under the stars eating and counting my blesssings: I am alive. I am healthy. I have a roof over my head. I have enough money to feed and dress me. I have a family that adores me and friends i cannot live without.

Maybe i will add a tub of ice cream to spice things up. I am not sure what to order for my dinner yet.

What are you going to do on New Year’s Eve?!

Things to do in London: British Museum’s Book of the Dead Exhibition!

One thing i love most about London is the vast amount of interesting exhibitions they have year round! As i am a sucker for anything historic and related to the ancient Egyptian dynasty i couldn’t wait to visit the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead Exhibition in my favorite museum in London.. The British Mesuem! Continue reading

Ako Recycling in Q8?!

I have been receiving emails and bbm broadcasts about recycling in Q8 followed by the address

I was very happy for there seems to be a proper recycling initiative in Q8… about time! We are like 20 years behind in that area! I went to the website and browsed around and to be frank i saw nothing relevant to an actual recycling programme to start in Q8 amongst us common people in households and malls or schools… or how if we did have a recycling programme at home would we be able to grab our stuff and take it to them for recycling…

Now let me ask you this… if there is a proper recycling initiative in Q8… would you actually take the time and make the effort to recycle your bottles or cans and separate your waste? Or would you think it’s too much of a hassle?!

When did you stop receiving a 3ediya?!

Up until i got a job my grandparents gave me a 3ediya. Up until i got married my parents gave me a 3ediya. Now i have not seen a 3ediya since 2003 and i have to say 3eed is so much less fun when you don’t have bank notes blessing your wallets. Then again i felt a bit stupid walking to my grandparents and getting money when i am all grown up!

Do you still get a 3ediya? What time is the right time to stop getting a 3ediya? Did you miss getting a 3ediya?

What are you doing this weekend? Nothing new? Same old same old? I have got just the place for you!

Earlier this week my husband was telling me about a newly opened historical cars museum in Q8 and insisted that we pass by. I thought to my self “How many Historical Cars in Q8 are there anyways? and how far do they go back?” … i thought there would be 2 3 cars maybe and all dating back to the 40’s or something. Little did i know that i would be blown away by those cars… Continue reading

The Effects of the New Tomato Prices…

We read that the prices of tomatoes in Q8 are on the rise… we heard that people are boycotting the tomatoes being too expensive and all.

What we didn’t see coming was the effect of the price increase on the “Quality” of our fast food burger! If there is one bonus to ordering a burger from Hardeez or Mcdonalds it’s that they always add one huge crisp and juicy tomato slice in the middle. Same goes for the lettuce. However, when my husband ordered a Hardeez Big Delux for lunch last Friday… and for the first time in our lives… we witnessed the tiniest saddest slice of tomato EVER! It was neither crisp nor very fresh either!!! He had to grab a tomato from the fridge and slice it to add it to the burger!

What’s up with that? We know the prices of tomatoes have increased but seriously?! That sad excuse for a tomato slice?! What is happening!!!

Have you noticed other restaurants reducing the amount of tomatoes in their dishes?!

Right before Eid i recieved this lovely elegant box from Continue reading
