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.

UPDATE: A friend of mine on twitter @Nalmulaifi linked me to a much simpler way to create a Mountain Lion USB Thumb Drive which unfortunately didn’t work well with me, but it might work better with you. So give it a try. [Link]
It literally took me more than 6 hours to download it on my crazy slow connection but at least it’s downloaded. Anyways I’m here to tell you about the method to create your own OS X Mountain Lion USB drive.
Before installing Mountain Lion just make sure that you backup your machine with the “Time Machine” that way you can guarantee it doesn’t mess anything up and if it does you will have a backup to resort to. I have created a Lion Installation Drive and am currently creating a few Mountain Lion ones, so this method is tested and works great. Anyways let’s go onto the process.
What You’ll Need:
- Downloaded Copy of Mountain Lion (Do not install it yet just download and keep it there)
- USB Drive (at least 8GB)
So the wait is finally over, as of less than an hour ago “Mountain Lion” appeared on the Mac App Store and is available for purchase and download. I am currently downloading it for my insane amount of machines and later on this evening I will point out a way for you to create a Mountain Lion Installation USB Drive so you can install your copy on a number of machines you own.
Available now for 19.99$ [Download Here]
Note: If you purchased a Mac anytime in between June 11 – July 25 visit the following link to enter the Serial number of your machine and get your free copy of Mountain Lion. You basically qualify for a free upgrade from Lion to Mountain Lion. [Link]
The wait is finally over! Those of you who are anxiously waiting for Apple’s latest Operating System release (OS X) Mountain Lion the wait is finally over. Apple has announced today that Mountain Lion will be offered for sale on July 25 for 19.99$ on the Mac App Store (I believe 10$ cheaper than last years).
The release was announced by Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, in which he reconfirmed that iOS6 will be out this fall. Being that I’m a huge Apple fangirl (yes I admit that I am, and everyone is calling me right now “Mother of Apples”) I have found TUAW’s list of “Getting Ready for Mountain Lion” quite helpful. So be sure to check them out here. [Link]
Look forward to the following new features:
- Preview gets a built in minimal image editor and is more than just an application to view photos.
- Messages are now available on your Mac machines, so you can carry on your iMessage conversation on your desktop/laptop.
- Dictation is available and works similarly to Siri in terms of you speaking the text and your computer will type it.
- Sharing comes built in with iWork, Safari, and almost everything on your system.
- Notifications are there just like they are on your iOS device.
Tim Cook also hinted out on some amazing new things coming our way soon by stating “We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we’ve got in the pipeline.” I can’t wait to see what they are, most signs point to a smaller version of the iPad and of course the next generation iPhone.
