On Tuesday April 3rd, I was invited by the lovely Ms. Arwa Behbehani & Ms. Nada from Q Cafe Restaurant to attend a lovely evening filled with good food at their newly opened restaurant cafe located in The Village (Abu Al Hasani) the coolest thing was that I could bring a plus one and who better to take than Swera along especially since she took some amazing shots :P (Most of which will be seen here :P) I should take her with me every where :P
So how was my experience? I am a picky eater and I don’t like the some things like spicy foods or anything with onions, pickles, peppers, etc. So this is my experience and therefore before you read this I am just a regular person who enjoys good food and a good dining experience so this is mine.
It’s been a hectic week I’ve had one engagement after another (no not the ring kind but another kind, get your minds out of there!) I have a few posts lined up for this week but of course if you follow me on Instagram/Twitter you will know what I will talk to you about here, I think I share too much of my life there (note to self: limit time online (note to other self: don’t listen to the first self)) so yeah back to the main topic, I haven’t felt this pushed to the limit in a long time hehe and it’s kind of nice but tiring at the same time.
One of the things I’ve been disliking about this week is the fact that I wake up really early (i.e. at 9/10AM yes that’s early for me!) and I get home late because of things I have to do during the day. When that happens I come home and barely am able to chillax in front of my sexy 27″ Cinema Display (read: Nasser it doesn’t have dead pixels but both of yours will!) watching the latest shows of the day, having dinner right there, and afterwards continuing the TV-athon on my Display of course while skimming blog posts on “Reeder” (the Google Reader app on my iPad) and checking instagram afterwards. I sometimes get too exhausted and decide to give up but by the time I head to bed it’s almost 4/5AM and that’s sad because a few hours later I’d have to wake up!
I can’t wait for the weekend to arrive simply so I can catch up on some sleep and since “The Vampire Diaries” is on a break I will definitely get a chance to do that. Gosh darnit I’ve missed this place! I missed having a chat with you little Bloggie! You know what we’ve been through thick and thin these past few years I’m glad you’re always here when I need you!
Yes if you have reached this point in the post I believe you have realized that this post does not contain any advertisements, reviews, or anything that might “benefit” you guys really. It’s my place to vent I am having fun at the moment sharing my thoughts with dear ol’ bloggie! But if you did and enjoyed this part then be a dear and say hello :P It’s fun sometimes to reconnect.
So the main subject of this post is that I am tired, exhausted, and sleep deprived after this hectic week but otherwise I’m peachy fine! :D
P.S. Back in the day this is how I blogged, just words no pictures and allowing you the reader to imagine my life. Yes I am cool like that! :D
Today, April 2nd, marks the International day for Autism.
I am glad that most TV shows nowadays are raising Autism awareness and showing the public (or those who watch the shows) different ways to deal with autistic children and more. One of those is “Parenthood” which shows you a kid dealing with the issues and how his parents deal with him being autistic. But that’s beyond the point.
A little information I received about “International Autism Day” can be found below.
Kuwait Center for Autism (KCA) is a non-profit charity organization established in 1994 by Dr. Samira Al-Saad which aims to relieve the country’s shortage in Educational Training, Diagnosis and Treatment of children with autism and strengthening all the amenities needed for these children.
Gulf Autism Union established by Dr. Samira Al-Saad in 1994 celebrates the International Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd 2012 by conducting different activities throughout the Gulf countries to highlight the understanding of “AUTISM” for the better future of all children and adults with autism.
Be sure to educate yourselves and spread awareness. Ignorance is definitely not blissful.
Ever since I got my first iPad I was excited about being able to watch my TV Shows on the go. And with the first generation model I had to wait a decent period until an app was available that allowed me to do that without shelling extra $$ for the shows I watched (i.e. without having to purchase Season Passes on iTunes for my Shows)
I recently got my Dad hooked onto this craze I’ve been on for the past 3 years and everyone was shocked as to how I was doing this. Therefore I will share my secret.
Just saw the best deal ever and thought to share it with my favorite readers.

So visit a branch nearby and grab one or call them up and have one home delivered.
Gulf Bank has been improving all its services from the ones provided to the customer to the ones provided to the community. One thing everyone should take in consideration is the “30 minutes to Save 3 Lives” campaign.
It might take us all 30 minutes to drive from your home to the mall, 30 minutes to enjoy a quick massage, 30 minutes to have lunch, but did you know that 30 minutes is all it takes to save 3 lives? So what are you waiting for? Head over to the nearest Gulf Bank Branch (Currently available at Nuzha Branch) and donate blood today to save the lives of many other people who knows someone out there might be saving yours soon.
For more information about the “Blood Donation Movement” visit their Facebook Page.
But wait that’s not all, did you know that Gulf Bank not only is good for your community but takes care of its customers and clients as well?! How is that achieved well I’ll leave you with my favorite TVC Ad one which I saw at the movies earlier this month and I looked over to my Aunt and said, “Now that’s true dedication.”
So if you don’t have an account with them, head on over today and enjoy the extra benefits of being a Gulf Bank customer.
So as most of you know I’ve been recently hit with the “Room redecorating” bug and I wanted to redesign things and change out of the dull brown/beige get up. Almost 5 years ago I was in love with the color Brown because well I don’t know I felt that it was nice but now I’m glad that I went with a gray + red option. I will not unveil the entire room but rather a small portion. The Apple Portion of my room. You see, everyone knows how obsessive I am, and how much I like to purchase new Apple toys even if its just iPods so I thought what better way than to incorporate that into my room and below is what happened.
In the corner near my bed I went with two of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes above a Magnetic White Board and a medium sized bookshelf. The top quote speaks very close to my heart and says “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, You’ll know when you find it.” And the second quote simply tells me to “Stay hungry… Stay foolish…” Both quotes are very dear to my heart.
And in the other corner behind my door above my shoes I went with the “Think Different” decal.
I am very happy with the way things turned out and I’m glad that my room now has a tiny extra piece of me in it.
Next time will unveil the library of the room although some of you have seen it on Instagram.
