The One Where Jacqui is Unmasked

October 9, 2014  |  My Life, Shout Outs

Contrary to popular belief, I am not some fat girl-dude (curvy maybe sometimes when I overindulge in burgers and pizza) but I am a human being.  Many of you my faithful readers might have imagined I would look something like this:


But in reality I am far away from it.  I have given you the image of being lazy, over weight, living on a couch, and just existing online and in your imaginations but I am real.  This month Bazaar Magazine decided I was interesting enough to interview for their “TRUTH OR DARE” segment and at first I was reluctant to come out with the real me, but then I was like “Bah humbug!”

November 27, 2012  |  Shout Outs

Ever had a problem with your mobile, computer, or any other electronic gadget? You’re probably wondering what kind of problem, right?  I guess did your mobile phone ever fall right out of your hands and shatter its glass? Or did it ever jump into a large body of water or even a small one? Not to mention did you ever face technical issues that just left you baffled trying to solve them?

Well wonder no more because believe it or not, there is a brand new Doctor in town, you know one that takes care of our precious gadgets (not our bodies). FixAid to the rescue!

FixAid is a Kuwaiti project that works with absolute credibility and honesty.  This project consists of a mobile workshop that fixes any problems related to mobile phones and other FixAid devices such as computers, whether its a technical failure, programming, or even a hardware issue.

What’s different with FixAid is that the devices are received, repaired and handed directly at the door of your house, in other words you don’t have to go searching for them, just one call ensures they arrive to your house pick up the patient, take them to get it fixed and bring it back.

For more information, check them out on their social networks they’re quite interesting.

Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah Premieres Islamic Art Movie

September 27, 2012  |  Shout Outs

Most of you by now probably know that my father works for the coolest place, Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah (DAI), and well I am so proud to announce this cool event they will be hosting on the 1st of October at 7:00 p.m. at the Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah’s (DAI) al-Maidan Cultural Centre in which the newest documentary “Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World” narrated by Academy Award winning actress Susan Sarandon, will make its debut in the Middle East region.

The showing will be open to the public with free admission to everyone.  The 90 minute film, from executive producers Michael Wolfe and Alex Kronemer, “takes audiences on an epic journey across nine countries and over 1,400 years of history.  It explores themes such as word, space, ornament, color, and water and presents the stories behind many great masterworks of Islamic art and architecture.”

But in the words of my great awesome talented father Abdulkareem Al-Ghadban, who happens to be the DAI Director of Exhibitions and Educational Programmes “We are pleased to be hosting the first showing of ‘Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World’ outside North America, I know the original intention of the film was to share the beauty of Islamic art with people in the west; to give them a sense of our world well beyond the stereotypes.  But the film is equally valuable for viewers in this region.  Periodically we need reminding of our heritage and culture.”  But wait he says more amazing stuff regarding the premiere and how “it is exciting to be screening the Middle East debut of ‘Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World.’ But it’s more exciting to be able to share such a beautiful production with friends of the DAI and with visitors, Monday night will be a very good night.”

So, what are you waiting for? Save the date on your calendars!

When: October 1st, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.

Where: Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah’s (DAI) al-Maidan Cultural Centre (right next to Sha’ab Park)

What: Middle East Premiere of “Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World”

[Shout Outs] Rice Pudding’s Ramadan Offer

July 28, 2012  |  Food, Shout Outs

A short while back I was notified by Rice Pudding of their special Ramadan offer.  When it comes to food everyone goes crazy and with Rice Pudding they’ve announced a few new flavors for the holy month of Ramadan.

Their newest flavor is “Rose Water” with a choice of toppings such as: Saffron Cloud and Pistachio (they try their best to introduce a new concept of toppings) And for the month of Ramadan they are offering a set of 18 mini containers in a “Ramadan Box”.

One other thing is that they just started a home delivery service however they prefer if the customers were to call in advance considering the Ramadan traffic.

And the last bit of new information is that they have started a Catering option for the Ramadan Ghabgat in which they will cater for any event as they consider their “customers are our celebrities”.  So if you’d like that then be sure to contact them on the below information.
