Earlier last week, I became the proud mother of a brand new MacBook Pro Retina Display, on July 23rd 2012 to be exact. I couldn’t describe the happiness I felt at the prospect of holding my own customized child (yes I refer to my gadgets as children I’m weird like that). For those of you following me on Instagram and Twitter you got to deal with the whole conception process (the act of me placing the order on June 22nd) all the way until the credit card was deducted, the packages were shipped, the moment they arrived at my DHL Borderlinx box, all the way to the moment it got delivered to my home! It took 1 whole month but it was well worth the wait.
I have had a week to play around with it and I am basically in love, everything looks crystal clear on it and it’s super fast! Super thin and light as well it doesn’t really feel as heavy as my MacBook Pro 17″ but at the same time not as light as my MacBook Air 11″. In an upcoming post I will write about what I fell in love with in regards to the device but as for the moment I would like to share with you my unboxing pictures.
It seems to be that Ramadan is the holy month of eating as well as worshiping God hehe every restaurant is outdoing itself with their Ramadan offers and Lenotre – Gulf Road branch is joining the crowd if not leading it. This year they have a superb assortment of platters, desserts, traditional sweets and drinks that will extend the joy of the holy days.
So why don’t you visit them and enjoy their Ramadan Buffet.

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.

Earlier this week I was invited to try out Zafran’s Iftar Buffet. Zafran is a contemporary Indian restaurant which is located in Centerpoint – Salem Al Mubarak Street (across the street from Al Fanar Mall).
I arrived there with Lujain (as usual) at 6:45 and the Maghreb prayers had just sounded. The place was beautifully decorated and spacious enough. We quickly chose a table and proceeded to the buffet area to pick from the mixture of mostly Indian foods and some lebanese items such as Hummos, Tabbouleh, etc.
I am not a huge fan of spicy food so I tried my best to steer away from those and Lujain as well. But it was kind of difficult as everything is mildly spicy.
A few days back young Sarah H. Al Thekair contacted me to educate me about her non-profit organization which is called “Al Zebeel”.
The concept of this project is that you buy “Zebeel” for Gergain and all the proceeds that are collected will go to charity, the Kuwaiti orphanage to be specific. It is available in more than one size.
Sarah H. Al Thekair is a 17 year old girl who is love with our culture and traditions. She has come up with this brilliant idea to make gergain more exciting and cool. So why not support her with her endeavors?
Be sure to contact her on the following channels.

You should always change your mattress once every few years, because some mattresses either become lumps and lose their shape or you need something more comfortable to sleep on. “The Bed Shop” is the shop you need to get to as they are having a cool campaign for Ramadan.
They are offering their customers an additional 5% discount when they donate their old mattresses/beds for the needy through them. In addition, a certificate will be issued from the Charity Organization to the customer, confirming the donation. So you don’t need to worry whether this is just a publicity stunt or not. So what are you waiting for? Purchase a new mattress and donate the old one to the less fortunate.
Offer is valid from July 25 – September 1 2012.
