I remember seeing a video just like this one on intlxpatr’s blog a while ago. It’s hilarious and so true 😛

After two years of talks, the Apple iPhone will be available in the UAE by the end of this month through a deal announced yesterday by Etisalat. Whether it would release the phone locked or not is yet to be decided. Also it will be released in KSA by Mobily later this year.




Well, as you all may have known already, Dean & Deluca (fancy name huh?) has opened in the Avenues. My  brother went there and liked what he saw. He said that he liked the idea of having a fancy gourmet grocery store in Kuwait.

The place looked very fancy and spacious (attached to a relatively small cafe) and the products were of premium quality and most of them were the hard-to-find types in other groceries.

It has many things to offer including fresh fish, crabs, cheeses, fruits, veggies and sweets. Also a bakery and a wide variety of packed sauces (for pastas and stuff).

The place is a gourmet grocery store, so the prices.. yep you guessed it.. are high compared to other places like carrefour and sultan center, But you know, you get what you pay for.

I still haven’t checked it out. I want to go there sometime.

Thanks INM & HNM

AlQadsiya football club received an invitation to participate in a major tournament held in Spain this summer (The real madrid friendly tournament). Other participants include elite European teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Ajax, Lyon among others.

Mr. AlHassawy, The clubs vice president, said that choosing AlQadisiyah to participate in this tournament had to do with the club’s reputation and the fact that the team had won many titles in the last ten years across the region.

He also added that their acceptance of this invitation isn’t final as of yet and is pending Alqadsiya board’s approval.

*AlQadsiya is the first club in the region to be invited for this tournament.

Thanks Fawaz

I was just asking my friend the same question and he said he likes the nescafe 3 in 1. For me, I’d have to go with water.. I drink 4 to 5 glasses of water and I’m enjoying every sip :p

What is YOUR favorite drinks at work?





I thought the Sheraton’s Mhammara was the best till I tasted my in-law’s version. They got the recipe originally from fatafeat.com.

You’re going to need:

  • 4 red peppers (flaifla/felfel barid)
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts (joz)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 lemon’s juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of dibs ilroman (someone tell me what it’s called in english please)
  • 1 cups crispy, oven-toasted bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

Now to the part where we learn how to mix the above to create one of the best starters:

-Grill the red peppers till they turn blackish. Then put them in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, and when they cool off, peal the skin, take out all the seeds and cut them up to pieces.

-Put the cut up red peppers and all the rest of the ingredients, except the olive oil, in the blender, and mix them till you get a thick texture. Then start adding olive oil while you’re mixing till you end up with a creamy texture. Voila! you’re done. Whip out a slice of bread and start dipping 🙂

Thanks Ahmad and Saleya for sharing the picture and the recipe.
