Happy New Year 2013!

January 1, 2013  |  Holidays, New Year

It’s official, 2012 has ended and 2013 has just opened its doors to us, a blank page in a brand new book, a new beginning, a new story to tell! I can’t believe we’ve survived the Mayan Apocalypse and more!


Now if we were living in China or the Asian part of the world 2013 will be a lucky year for all of us, since they believe that 13 is a lucky number but then again others think that the number 13 is bad luck.  I personally feel that 2013 will be something in between, a mix sort of, the good and the bad; the lucky and unlucky but mostly lucky!

Happy 2013 readers and may you have an awesome holiday! I know I’ll spend most of mine asleep, no no I will actually try to wake up and have a New Year breakfast outside (although breakfast might be at around 11-12 lol I’m lazy like that!)

Happy Bah Humbug Day!

December 25, 2012  |  Holidays

It’s that time of the year where holidays get evaluated by how much money you spent on that special gift, unfortunately Santa wasn’t good to me this year as I haven’t seen any new gift well other than that Artist Doodle Man that Father seemed to have purchased for himself but when he thought my “keychain” gift from Houston was lost and so he decided to give it to me.  I don’t blame him really, just Lujain, my little sister, whom lately has been getting most of the gifts (bah humbug).

Merry Christmas

It’s been a lovely morning really, what with all that rain and I can’t believe how much it poured.  Is it wrong that I am more in love with rain than the next person out there, one thing I love to do when I hear it raining is to grab a book and just sit down and read it whether it’s on my comfy chair in my little cozy library or it’s cuddled up in bed all warm and cozy.  I also seem to get a craving for some hot chocolate what with the chill that comes with that rain.  Mother hates the rain but only because she worries a lot and about everything, if we are outside driving she worries about our safety; if we are home she worries about leakages and the whatnot.  It’s crazy really but I find rain so soothing I just want to go outside and re-enact “Singing in the Rain”.

Happy December 2013

December 1, 2012  |  Holidays

It’s that time of the year, when the best month is here!  It’s December everyone! Time to put on your red hats and go do all the good deeds you can do! Bah I can’t make any sense right now but I am so happy that December has begun!

Personally, I’m so happy that December has arrived and that my birthday seems to be only 3 days away (Dec. 4).  December always comes with a nice feeling of freshness, of wishes turning into realities, of colder weather with awesome barbecuing, rainy days and simply just awesome days! I hope that this year December proves to be even more gentle on my little soul than the previous years.

So if you’re reading this right now, stop.  Get up and go outside, enjoy the beautiful cool weather and live the last few days of this year as if it were your last.  Who knows in 21 days it just might be the apocalypse (just kidding).

Happy December!

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,


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

Happy 4th of July

July 4, 2012  |  Holidays

A year ago today I was in the lovely state of New York celebrating the 4th of July by lazying around in Sister #4’s studio apartment.  I wanted to go out I believe we might have gone out but I don’t remember it really.  All I remember was going to an off-broadway show the night before and probably staying in the next day.  Yes I wanted to stay in to watch the fireworks from the window since it was going to be crowded as hell but I ended up lazying around as usual! Boy do I miss that bugger!

Anwyays so back on topic? Happy 4th of July to all you USA-ers :D Hope you have an awesome day and enjoy the fireworks!

[Mother’s Day] Zain & The Personal Shot

March 21, 2012  |  Fun, Holidays, Shout Outs

I am a huge fan of Zain not only because of my phone line being one of the oldest ones available and from them but I am a fan ever since I was a tiny little inkling,1987 to be exact, or even slightly before that. I was 4 years old and living with my grandmother and uncles and one of them had the old In6alaq 1 (Mobile Phone that was stationary in the car) and I used to take pictures and pose with it. Don’t believe me? Then check this shot out!


Back to the main topic: Today Zain will be available at the Avenues with a lovely Mother’s Day Photo Booth in Dome 2. This booth will allow you to take a memorable shot for your mom, express the way you feel for her, show her how much you love her/miss her/respect her, and everything that is a mother. All their asking is for you to express your feelings in a shot.

Mothers day 2

You can personalize the image with a written message and any pose you’d like. You can also bring your mother along for a photo shoot.

Now the fun part, they are running a small fun competition on Zain’s Facebook Fanpage in which they will upload the pictures live on Facebook and the Top 5 pictures with the most “likes” will win an iPhone 4S for their mother (of course it goes without saying that only the people who give Zain their permission to upload their pictures will be live on Facebook so your safety is ensured).

All the terms and conditions are uploaded on their Facebook Page.

So what are you waiting for? Hurry up get in your car and go!

Available: March 21st (Today)

Time: 10 AM – 10 PM

Happy Mother’s Day from Zain and myself. Thanks Hala for the information.
