Happy Eid 2012

August 18, 2012  |  Greetings, Holidays

Dear All Couch Avenue Readers,

I would like to take this moment to wish you all a very Happy and Joyous Eid.  And hope that you and your family will celebrate it with lots of great food and company.  I have been quite off the scene these past few weeks but now that our schedules will go back to full productivity I will be seen more around here.

I can’t believe that Ramadan has ended, mashalla time sure does fly by it seems as if it was just yesterday we were anticipating its approach and today we see it closing its doors.  Enshalla God brings us another Ramadan next year with all our family and friends.

Best Regards,

Jacqui

P.S. To all my family and friends I hope you have a great Eid filled with lots of food and cash! #Omnomnom!

Ramadan Kareem

July 19, 2012  |  Greetings

So it was announced a short while ago that tomorrow (Friday) marks the first day of Ramadan 2012.  I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my loyal readers a Happy Ramadan (a.k.a. Ramadan Mubarak) and hope that they have a blessed month ahead.

The list you have all been waiting for will be uploaded shortly. So bear with me, it has taken me literally 8 hours to compose!

Happy Social Media Day ’12

June 30, 2012  |  Greetings

It is officially June 30th and thus the third annual Social Media day!  You might be wondering what is “Social Media Day” well to answer your wandering mind, back in 2010 Mashable decided that since there was no official Social Media Day that they would dub June 30th as such a day.

It is a day set to connect with other enthusiasts in your area by arranging meet ups.  Shortly afterwards the world heard the social cry and Canada officially named June 30th as Social Media Day.

If you are constantly found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Pintrest, Tumblr, Blogs, YouTube, Google+, and any social platform then today is a day for you.  It’s a celebration you have to partake in because seriously without those social platforms your life will be a boring potato.  So I’d like to wish you all a very “Happy Social Media Day” and keep on socializing digitally!

His & Hers Q8 Welcome Theirs

September 12, 2011  |  Friends, Greetings

Who knew the day that I came out of “semi-hibernation” (let’s face it I will still hibernate because deep down inside I am a nice cuddly teddy bear) will be the day that we welcome a blogger baby into the family!

His&HersQ8 have officially become parents! YAY! *throws confetti and does the chicken dance*

Let’s all join together and share their joy and happiness and welcome their awesome cool munchkin “Baby Mishari”

Dear His & Hers,

Mabrook Ma Yakom Dears! O Yetraba Eb 3ezkom Enshalla! Enshalla Ya rab ebaleghkom feeh El Thereya El Sal7a!

Sincerely,

Jacqui (the lazy bugger)

Happy Eid Al Fitr 2011

August 29, 2011  |  Eid, Greetings

A month, (well almost a month) passed by again and we are now saying Good bye to Ramadan again! Sorry for the laziness and lack of posts during the end of the month but it’s the busiest but don’t worry the posts are scheduled to roll in very soon.  I couldn’t find a better image than the one shared by Zain’s Social Media people which to me says “Happy Eid” in the happiest way possible!

So to everyone out there my loved ones, family, and friends I wish you a Happy Eid and 3asakom Mn 3awada :)

Thanks to Zain’s Social Media Team for their lovely connection during this holy month it was awesome and regardless of everything I loved it for the family feeling it sent rather than any commercial ideas/feelings.

 

Ramadan & The Never Ending Gifts

August 5, 2011  |  Greetings

I love getting gifts, especially food & gadgets! And this year I experienced the receiving of gifts from our friends at VIVA, Zain, and Danderma! I love you guys!

I woke up the first day of Ramadan to find that both VIVA & Zain had sent me these beautiful gifts.

Later on in the day I got this awesome package from Danderma!

All the packages were awesome and welcomed in my home hehe especially since both my parents are suckers for the traditional arabic sweets :D Thanks guys!

Happy Ramadan TV Series List!

July 31, 2011  |  Greetings, TV

Update: Due to some last minute re-scheduling some shows have new timings and one of which is “Banat Al Thanaweya” it’s at 9:10PM on Dubai I will update the list and upload it ASAP.

So it’s that time of the year where productivity goes down the drain and everyone goes to work like a Zombie, no one does any major work because we are all either too cranky or half asleep because we stayed up watching those TV Shows that seem to bombard our TVs during Ramadan, or if you are one of the others you stayed up too late worshiping in the Holy month.

It’s finally Ramadan Time! And that means new TV Shows are here! I tried to do my best and compile a list of TV Shows that I was interested in watching or that I knew friends who were interested and the networks showing them.  I remember last year I made that list while I was at work LOL! This year I did it at home! Time does change! I wish you all a happy and holy month of Ramadan and may God fill it with good health and good news.

Without further ado here is my list! Hope you guys love it, I will be attaching a PDF version for those who wanna download it and add it to their iPads :D And to check out more shows and updated timings I found this awesome forum post with the Khaleeji TV Shows (I am missing however Al A3maq, Al Serdab, and 7areem Oboy) couldn’t find what networks they were on or the timings. [Link]

This year I will for sure be watching “Saher Al Lail 2” & “Al Maleka” the other shows are up for grabs I might also watch “Forsa Thanya” simply because my man-crush Hussain Al Mansour is on that show! Seriously I love that dude! Many thanks to my Twitter peeps (aka Tweeps) for their help and their encouragement! Enjoy!

P.S. For those of you who want the list organized by the timings of the shows instead of the Show name, I created that list and attached it below not to mention kept it text only :D Be sure to spread this and share the love.
