Late last evening (July 11) I was invited by the amazing Danderma to attend a special gathering geared towards the launch of Book II of the ‘Dathra’ series also known as “The Chronicles of Dathra – a dowdy girl from Kuwait” (Yawmeyat Wa7da Q8eya Dathra). Now that the book is out from the printers edited and beautifully designed by the amazing Fatima Al Othman from F20 Designs some of ‘Dathra’s’ fans and close friends gathered to celebrate. It also was a mini-early birthday celebration for Danderma as her birthday will take place next week.
In the past two years I have re-met a lovely wonderful amazing young woman called Swera, we reconnected via a mutual friend (Thanks Swair for that Baby Shower of yours years ago!) and rekindled our non-existant friendship which should’ve occured during our college years. You see both Swera and I went to Kuwait University and studied English Literature the only thing was we never ran in the same circles, we had similar classes (Shout out to: Dr. Jamal Bouresli’s class I want to say Modern Drama but I forget :/) but we never saw each other, other than for the occasional hello.
The moment I found out she was a blogger we started to rekindle our relationship and establish a friendship I am proud to say that is so strong (mashalla, knocks on wood) that I consider her my sister more than my friend. I am very proud to have known such an amazing woman, proud of the person she has become, of the obstacles she has surpassed and will continue to be proud of the woman she will be, the loving mother and so much. It is on this lovely day that said friend is turning a year YOUNGER! And I would like to be one of the first to wish her a “Happy Birthday” in my special way! So without further ado!
Happy Birthday Babes :*** I wish you the happiest 19th Birthday ever! And may all your wishes come true! (Not that you need anymore since you have me in your life :P Hehehe)
A few weeks ago, the peeps at Chef Boutique launched a secret campaign called “Project X“, not much of a campaign but it was something secretive and fun. Bloggers were competing with each other for the title of Best Cook! Not really but still, that’s basically it in a nutshell. I contacted my partner in crime, aka Swera from Crazy Yet Wise and we decided to sign up together as partners!
It has been a while and I’ve been meaning to write but I kept procrastinating and postponing the transfer of the photos from my camera to my computer and when I did, I enjoyed my Instagram shots more than anything else but I’m slightly off topic here. Let’s start over.
Earlier this year, the blogging team from 7ajidude invited us to celebrate the winner of “The Cutest Baby Blogger Instagram Challenge” at Vinny’s which is located in 52 Degrees in Al Tilal Complex. So on a Thursday evening of January 5th Lujain, my sister #3 (aka Your Battlefield) and I headed over there to have a lovely dinner with friends and well I can honestly say that they are more like family as well.
My sisters and I arrived very early, even Dudette wasn’t there yet but nonetheless we took it as an opportunity to walk around a bit and have both sisters of mine get scared from a cat (yes they don’t like cats). But soon enough Dudette made it and started setting up when we were just walking in. The place was beautiful and all ours! We monopolized the place to the final extent, Vinny’s had provided us with lovely name badges (not that most of us needed them) but Dudette did the most awesome thing by placing comments underneath each one :P I was known as “The Sabyak Baby with Garfield Touches” (roughly translated as ‘The Tomboy baby with Garfield touches’).
Earlier this week, our good friend Salem from The Fixtures Q8 conducted an interview with me and published it on his blog. Unfortunately I went on for too long but for those of you who want to know more about me and the blog head on over there and read it!

Thanks Salem for the awesome Interview and for being amazing as always!
