Months ago, when I was having massages like crazy, I came across this piece of info and was excited and about to post about it.. till I discovered that the spa is for girls only. So here we go girls, for those of you who don’t know about the Banyan Tree, click HERE to get a better idea. It’s in Royal Hyatt hospital in aljabriya.



The official opening of this restaurant is going to be this sunday, the 1st of February.




We were all at our friend’s yesterday, invited to his house for his melcha-dinner gathering. I don’t have much to say except congratulations (again) πŸ™‚ and to show the rest of you some of the things we had for dinner..

The MPS held a convention/celebration to acknowledge Hamas’ perseverance.

Literal translation:
Woman: This is Kuwait’s Ghetra. You MPS sold Kuwait. You’re all hypocrites. This is the Kuwaiti’s Ghetra.

Implication (in my opinion):
People at the convention were wearing the palestinians’ Ghetras or Keffiyeh, as a sign of support for Hamas and palestine. The woman felt offended and was opposing the whole thing, in a very unsubtle way.

I’m hoping there is a full video somewhere of this incident so we can get a better idea.

Thanks Khalid


Guys i thought the salaries were supposed to only increase but i got shocked once I read this.

I’ve received this via email from my friend, and apparently I wasn’t fast enough to post it since atleast 2 blogs did so far. But anyway better late than never. For those of you who cannot read arabic I’ll make an attempt to give you the gist of the letter:

In a nutshell this is a letter sent by the Emir of Riyadh, Salman Bin Abdulaziz, to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, stating that the way the Emir Sultan was behaving was inappropriate and that calling the TV station and reprimanding the TV hosts in public and on live tv was not in line with the kind of tone the Saudis have come to expect from such public figures.

The Emir of Reyadh also mentioned that Emir Sultan was overstepping his authority when he called Abu Athnain, who is from a well-known family, an ill raised. And then finally He asked the King to try to stop this kind of behavior, pointing out that this wasn’t Emir Sultan’s first time, but that He had done similar things in the past, and some were in public too.

This keeps getting better πŸ™‚

Thanks Khalid


So AlArabiya published a statement by saudi officials denying the whole content of this letter above and they said it’s all fake and fabricated. Personally, I don’t think it’s fake coz I think If I ever did something similar and sent this letter and it reached the public, I’d deny it too.

I just checked Buzberry and it seems me and Alvaro are on the same page πŸ™‚

Thanks HBZ and Fawaz for the link.

Today my wife found out that Nespresso is offering a new flavour which is Caramel.. So we went ahead and ordered some but unfortunately we haven’t tried them yet. I’ll let you guys know all about it once I get a taste πŸ™‚


A week ago I received my Vodafone branded and unlocked Blackberry Storm which i bought from Ebay. I’m not a fan of touch screens phones, but since i found this with an unbelievable price of KD160 including delivery expenses plus shop&ship’s, I became a fan. Just to give you guys an idea on why i thought this was a good deal, a quick comparison is Kuwait-Mall.com, they’re selling it for KD297, almost double the price.

UPDATE: Have anyone tried to send mms with a Blackberry?

Homemade pretzels

Mishary posted about the home made pretzels last week and we’ve been getting requests to post the recipe. Well, guys & gals, wait no more, here is the recipe:

  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tea spoon salt
  • 2 table spoon sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package yeast (khameera)
  • 1 table spoon margarine (it’s a butter substitute. You can use butter)
  • 1 table spoon water
  • 1 egg yolk (beaten)
  • Coarse salt (mil7 khashin)

Mix the 1 cup of flour with the sugar, salt and yeast. Heat the 1 cup of water and margarine (butter) to 120-130 degrees, then add it, gradually, to the mix. Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed, then add 1/2 cup of flour. Beat again at high speed for another 2 minutes. Then add some more flour till you make a soft dough (zeedaw 3almix 67een lain ibnetharkom t9eer 3ayeena layna.. mayabeelha ‘3isham). Take the soft dough and put it on floured board and work the dough with your hands for 5 minutes, then cover it and let it rest for 40 minutes.

Divide the dough to 12 equal parts. Roll the parts to form ropes, and then shape them into pretzels or any other desired shape. place on greased baking sheet and let it rest for 5 minutes while you mix the egg yolk and the 1 table spoon of water to brush on the pretzels. Finally sprinkle the coarse salt on top. Bake for 15 minutes at a 375 degrees.

Thanks Saleya


I heard and read a lot of raving reviews and praises from bloggers and friends alike about The Early Bird, and wanted to go there for a long time now but the restaurant’s location and it’s opening times didn’t make it easy for me to try it out sooner, but thanks to bu9ale7’s persistence, we finally managed to pay a visit this weekend.

Remember this post? well, right after that phone call and the insults that flew, the TV station, suspended the 3 guys from work,Β adding insults to injuries.

And today, according to Alqabas, Abu Athnain, one of the newsmen, filed a lawsuit against Emir Sultan bin Fahad. Abu Athnain’s family considered the matter deeply insulting and contacted a few lawyers whom were willing to take on the case.

This should be interesting to follow…




This was written in one of AlMubarakiya’s elevators. *sigh* remember the old days when spitting in an elevator wasn’t a big deal… simpler times.. πŸ˜›

Half an hour ago we started receiving emails and some commented that they couldn’t view our main page and that it’s been changed temporarily to pattymezzo.com. I’m glad to say that the tiny technical problem seems to be solved and that it might had something to do with our hosting company.

Thanks for your patience. Everything is supposed to be back to normal now.
