[Apple] Happy iPad HD Day

March 7, 2012  |  Apple, I want.., iPad, New Products

So 4 hours are between us and the announcement of the next generation iPad.  Some might call it “iPad 3” but so far all signs point to it being called “iPad HD” and honestly they have the same ring to it ;D I personally can’t wait!

I have told myself over and over again that I don’t NEED to get the new iPad HD but personally I WANT IT! Yes I do! Just looking at the Invite to the event has made me want it even more! Yes I want me a White 64GB 3G model one!   

Check back tonight after 9PM to get the latest scoop on what Apple has announced.  Also I have a feeling that iOS 5.1 will be unveiled today with availability starting moments later! Not only that but it will make Siri even more Siri-ously awesome!

P.S. If all the signs are correct we can expect a March 16th shipping date and availability of the beast since that is exactly what happened last year with the “iPad 2” and Dear Sister #3 (Dudu) I love you! :P Hint Hint!

Lower Braces Installed Today

March 6, 2012  |  Health, My Life

When I woke up this morning; little did I know that I would be getting my lower braces put in when I visited my dentist for my monthly check-up.  I guess it’s because my teeth have been fixing themselves and moving around (the naughty little buggers) and so I was able to get the lower ones put in at Bayan Dental.

Knowing myself; the minute I heard “Lower Braces” my heart sank to the pit of my stomache and I got nervous all over again.  I knew it wouldn’t hurt much but something about hearing the words makes it seem real and scary.  The process is not scary at all it’s just that I hate dealing with all of this that I get scared sometimes.  A short while later and everything was installed and ready and I started feeling the pressure again on my teeth.

So now my old plan of using my lower teeth to eat food has been blown out the window and I’m back to soft foods again until I learn how to deal with the pressure.  Which ideally means losing another 5 kilos (hurraaaay!) but still I will miss my favorite foods!

Sister #4 (N) has been calling me “Brace Face” ever since I got them back in December and well little did I know that was an actual TV Show/Movie thing for kids and the girl you see above is “Brace Face” so now I am officially completely a brace face until further notice and let’s see a thinner me soon.

Toodles!

The Real Housewives of Disney [SNL]

March 6, 2012  |  Fun, Links, TV

So this past Saturday; Lindsay Lohan hosted “Saturday Night Live” and she didn’t do that great of a job especially since they were all calling it her “comeback.”  She clearly was reading off the cue-cards the whole night and didn’t put on a great show.  The only sketch that I loved and absolutely cherished with all my heart was the short “The Real Housewives of Disney” and if Bravo was to produce that I would totally watch it 1000000%!

Imagine if Cinderella; Snow White; Rapunzel; Jasmine; and Belle were all in one show talking about their Princes and lives?! I would totally watch that shit! Check it out below!

The Making of: Zain Kuwait Flash Mob

March 4, 2012  |  Link Surfing, Music I Love

So we all know that the Zain Flash Mob was a hit, and that it took two months to plan and organize to give you that awesome final result.  Well Zain Kuwait has decided to share with you more of what went behind the scenes to get you that final awesome result. This is one video that we will never get sick of, I just wish we get more Flash Mobs or something better even because I miss having a fun time in Kuwait, it’s all politics and shizzle lately and I want to branch out from that.

So here you go, enjoy the video and enjoy learning how hard it was to plan something this big.  And see if you can spot a fellow blogger *ehem*P0ach*ehem* :P God Bless You Zain for making us smile again!

P.S. I still got goosebumps even while watching it for the millionth time!

Wasel What? Wasel When?

February 29, 2012  |  Shout Outs

You might have seen this all around Kuwait billboards and on television but apparently something is “wasel” (aka coming) soon. It could be a national campaign for the national celebration of Kuwait but no one can be sure until the details are revealed.

And the only thing I know about it is that Abdulhussein Abdulreda (a famous Kuwaiti actor) has something to do with it somehow somewhere.
