New Theme Poll Results…

The poll on the new theme is now closed with 60% of voters liking the new theme… i would say it passed 😀

Now for the next few days i might be a bit slow on posting since i would be spending my time trying to customize my theme and make it more *me* and change some stuff here and there, add some cool plugins… by the way this theme is a FREE wordpress theme that can be used and customized by anyone and you might have seen it somewhere else before… it is NOT specifically made for me and i do not posses the ability to build themes from scratch (yet!)…

What do you think of the new theme?

I am still playing around with the new theme and trying out stuff… i think it looks pretty good but needs a bit of tweaking here and there…

Now check the new theme out by clicking the picture above to enlarge or by going to the new site  (click here) then please come back and click the poll below to let me know if you like it or not.

By the way when i am done with the new theme and i officially open it i am having a big lovely surprise for my readers… kinda like a home warming gift 😉

Stay Tuned and help me out by giving me your opinion… the sooner i am done the better 😀

I am going on a diet! Which Diet Meals Provider To Choose?!

I am tired of feeling fat andbarrell like… i am looking in the mirror and i am NOT happy!!! Recently i have gotten too comfortable around food consuming and craving all kinds of sugary fatty concotions!!! I have decided to make each day in 2011 count and worthy… there is only one 2011 to live in this lifetime… Mo?

So i have decided to cut out all the unnecessarily sugar/flour/fat from my life and join a diet program -after i wash down my Starbucks blue berry muffin with a tall caramel macciato that is-. Currently i have decided to go with Regime Bu Gowa6ee as q8ys call it… I am thinking of subscribing for a breakfast/lunch deal for around two weeks and i am choosing between Lo Fat, Diet Care, and Diet Center… Hopefully it will help me keep my food balanced for the next two weeks so help ease me back into my regular more restraint diet and if i see it’s beneficial i would extend it for a month or so…

Have you tried Lo Fat, Diet Care, or Diet Center before?! What do you think of their services?!

Would you stay at your in laws this case?!

The other day we were talking about marriages in q8. Particularly about couples moving into a wing, apartment, or a floor at the in laws residence… when a matter i found confusing arose…

Many Q8ys build apartments in their houses for their sons to move in when they get married especially considering the current state of exaggerated rental rates in the country. Nothing strange there.

What’s strange though is that when a woman decides to start looking for a bride or actually finds a bride, she decides that preparations for his sons marriage includes furnishing the whole apartment with her own taste and all he has to do is marry a woman, bring her to live in his already furnished apartment and expects her to live with him happily ever after!

I was aghast at the idea. Starting my life in a bedroom and a living room that i didn’t get to choose? That his mother chose for me?! Why?! For gods sake the apartment is theirs but it should be furnished according to MY TASTE as i am the one going to live there!

People once chewed a girl for insisting on refurnishing the apartment according to her taste. I thought she was right in her move and that the mother in law was being inconsiderate & selfish getting angry at her daughter in law yet others thought i was deluded?! That furnishing the apartment was a great and very generous thing to do and the wife should have been grateful!!!!  Another girl i know thinks who cares? It’s not i will live there forever let the mother in law furnish it as she pleases… i am confused here… am i the only one who thinks it’s the wive’s absolute right in furnishing her apartment according to her taste? Not the kitchen or the bathroom per say but at LEAST the bedroom?! Especially considering the 90% of Q8y ladies think that Louis XIV style furniture is the way to go while i strictly hate that style and prefer modern?!

 My late mother in law heard i was saving for a Kenwood Major system so she bought me a mixer system in another brand that was fine but i couldn’t keep it for one second in my kitchen and i exchanged it and paid extra for the Kenwood Major i wanted… and that was just a mixer!!! How can anyone live in a furnished apartment and stay there happily when they get married is beyond me…

Would you stay in an apartment at your in laws furnished entirely according to your mother in law taste!? How so?!

Things 2 Get 4m London: Carluccio’s White Truffle Oil

One thing i always wanted to try is Carluccio’s White Truffle Olive Oil… i actually always grabbed it and tried to sneak it in the cash register but my husband would catch me and lecture me on the fact that we cannot travel with a bottle of olive oil back to Q8.

The bottle is TINY though! Very small and no taller than the palm of my hand! So at last i managed to buy it behind his back, hide it, and smuggle it back to Q8 with me and guess what? Not one drop is spilled!

Now i am searching for a great recipe to match this great tasting white truffle oil… insha2 allah i will be posting about it soon… oh and Butootee will not be allowed to taste any 3eqaban lah 3la na7astah 😉

Do you have any suggestions?!

The ten types of women I cannot Stand…

1- The girl who is all over you when you have an upcoming family wedding/reception acting all sweet and friendly and your BFF… then when a family 3aza happens she disappears without even a 3atham Allah Ajrech

2- The girls ele when she laughs teg3ad tetka3ka3 ib a3la 9oot.ha regardless of her surroundings… laugh as loud as u like at home but bel 9ekka ako shay ismah 3aib…

3-The girl eletetshay7a6 24/7 about her designer clothes, designer jewellery, brand new car, and she must let you know how much her outfit costs at any given moment. 3lamich mo shayfa khair?!

4- Om Shallakh who tells tall tall tales that no one can believe just to get people’s attentions.

5- The girls who talks about nothing but how men run after her all the time and following her home and leaving her gifts and calling her number at the middle of the night and falling at her feet asking for her hand in marriage. La o she would be jaikara b3d.

6- The girls you don’t know who adds you on Facebook just so you would see o comment on her one million pictures and tell her she is wow etshaweq o wow etyanin o mowa mowah… shofoone ‘3a9eb 6eeb! Shasaweelich ana!

7- Botamba girls who insist on wearing the tightest clothes especially leggings and skinny jeans and the shortest of shirts so everything is bel 9ekka… la o foogha itkoon met7ajba b3d… el seter zain este7aw!

8- The sneaky girl who would befriend you at once, gets all chummy with your girl friends, then you find out they’ve been meeting behind your back. Then suddenly you are the pariah of the group!

9- Girls who scream at the help/salespersons/waiters and treat them like slaves. Dismissing their service  without even saying a simple thank you or please.

10- The girl ele when she is out with her husband would run away from you and act as if she didn’t see you even though your eyes have locked… eshda3wa ib nakel raylich? Min dara 3ankom?!

3ndi more bs b3d mali kholg… what kind of girl can’t you stand?!

I like those glasses!

I’m sick and bored and sitting on my couch this morning… i flip to alwatan TV and there is a man i don’t know talking about some financial thing i don’t understand. I was just about to change the channel when i noticed his glasses…

They are SO COOL! I have never seen such glasses before… they would be perfect for people like me who break their glasses constantly… those are already split in half so they won’t break as much 😀

Have you seen those glasses before?! Would you wear them?!

Are u a fan of Monopoly?!

I am a big fan of the board game Monoply… We used to play it all the time when we were little kids although my brother would always lose most of the little items in the box and we had to buy new ones to play with… but now we hardly ever have the time to play… I miss the old days 😦
As a fan of monoply I went through a phase of buying limited edition board games… I have the lord of the rings Monoply where the areas are named after places from the movie and the ring also moves along with the players… The internet edition is also amazing and is very technical, chance cards are called emails and such…

Do u like monopoly?! How many monopolys at home do u have?
