A Full Day 9AM-5PM ! Eid Mubarak ^_^

October 13, 2007 at 1:36 pm (academic, General, Lifestyle, Personal)

Eid Mubarak for all Muslims who are celebrating these holy amazing days and the end of Ramadan. How did I approach Eid’s news?? Well, I didn’t take the news very well, I love Ramadan and enjoy Fasting, so I wasn’t happy that Ramadan was for 29 days only. ( I asked my Mom, to pray that Eid will be on Saturday)>_<.. It didn’t work apparently (&_&)

Another reason for the disappointment is that I had a full day on Friday, Yeah , a Full day on my Eid … (Ahhhhh!!!). 3 hours of lectures, then an hour meeting with my group (discussing dental cases==> Boring) followed by 3 hours of observing anxious patients being treated under sedation. What an Eid, *_*

…… Eid Mubarak…. and Ensha-Allah all of you are having a great time with your loved ones ^_^

happiness.. Why & How ?!

October 2, 2007 at 10:40 pm (food, Health, Lifestyle) (, , )

Happiness is one of multi-million things that we want and strive for. We thrive so many things and without any doubts , happiness is in placed on top of any {Wanted List}. I came across some people mostly patients who wants this and would love that, but sometimes you encounter some odd ones who seek happiness by doing socially unacceptable behaviour. This week I had my first session with one of those patients. In general, she was a beautiful young lady who was skinny, actually too skinny for a woman in her age and height. She’s been complaining of sensitivity form her teeth, and unfortunately her problem is what we call ‘tooth wear’ due to erosion. In lay-man terms our teeth like any thing we touch & play with,, would sometimes get worn down and that can be due to certain factors… I’m not going to indulge you with details but with this particular patient, her teeth were worn down due to erosion from her continuous vomiting habits, she is/was suffering from an eating disorder. How did I know? Clinical signs and her vague answers towards my questions as well as her obvious nervousness..She is in denial and I can’t do anything about that. My duty is to inform her of the cause of the problem but if she’s not bothered to address the problem, I can’t do a lot of this that I would do normally.

It’s sad to see people who would torture themselves to be happy. Is that happiness? In their mid, it’s the ultimate goal that would lead to a happy life or so they say? Why, Why would she do something like that. neglecting her health and her body needs, just to be skinny, why? I guess I can relate to her, I do feel the pressure to be thin and I hate it when somebody points that I gained weight and that’s why I enjoy losing weight because I hate the word ‘Gain’. Yes, I admit that I’m skinny and and well below the ‘Healthy weight’ for my height but I’m influenced by media, friends and family. Overall, I learnt to love my self and be happy nevertheless. I learnt to accept my body without depriving it of it’s needs but I’m still afraid of gaining weight. I hate it but I try to enjoy food whenever I can.  I didn’t want to write about myself, I didn’t aim for that.

Funny thing: 87% of the British population believe that they are happy because of their hobbies, 90% of which, stated that their hobbies involved gardening!!! Do you think that we should consider gardening as a therapeutic way to relieve stress!! Might consider it ^_^

Media Rants…

September 12, 2007 at 7:48 pm (Entertainment, Home & Furniture, Humor, Lifestyle, Movies, Music, News, Photohraphy, Trends, Video)

Oh Brit.. I have never been a fan of your music but I wanted you to successed. Your roller-coaster life is depressing and as a gentle human being (That’s me.. Ahem), I wish happiness for everybody and that includes you. It’s sad how a young artist who’s been in the business for more than 5 years, always on top to get to this low point of her life & career. You control your own life but you are lost, can’t guide yourself and as a result… A wreck who I hope that would be saved ..(One Day )….

Skull-A-Day

August 11, 2007 at 11:11 pm (Humor, Lifestyle)

 

I came across this blog whose owner wants to post a skull’s image everyday for a whole year. The project started on June 07, so there’s a long way for the Skull Lady (That’s the owner Nick-Name) to go. It’s interesting to see how a person can be dedicated for a project for a whole year. I remember 2 years ago, I was checking a blog for the same reason, I’m checking this one.. which is; Will they be able to do it? That person mission was to take a picture a day for a whole year. Same concept.. Different styles and difficult missions…^_^

P.S.: The picture is one of the images posted on the Skull Lady blog ..

Reynolds Chairs of Yew Wood

August 10, 2007 at 10:31 pm (Home & Furniture, Lifestyle, Shopping)

These are rare 1950’s yew wood chairs designed by Alan Reynolds. They retail for 95£ (50KD approximaltely) each. I don’t find them elegant but if you want a contemporary look to your dinin/living room with a link to 1600s; their style can deliver. Not for everybody taste, but they can be, if they are used and placed wisely.

I was looking up Yew wood and found that they were used widely in the world during 1960s, especially in Europe. Nowaday, It’s hard to find this type of wood becaus most countries managed to enforce laws to potect their forests and the wild life (Well Done to that). One thing I found which is very interesting; The Yew tree is known as the Tree of Immortility…?!?!?!

Dual Mixer watch

August 8, 2007 at 9:40 am (Gadgets, Japanese, Lifestyle, Shopping)

One of the coolest watches I laid my eyes on recently. The main feature that caught my attention is the ability to set 2 time zones at the same time… That’s perfect for me as I can have Both Manchester + Kuwait’s time without adding/substracting hours in my mind (Hate maths).. check the watch and the glowing magic.

The watch is a product of ‘We are Gang’ brand, designed by Perry Yu.

Not cool enough… Check the price Tag…. 10.900 $ … 10.900 Yen which equals 25.900KD ..

…. To make the deal more accessible, If you spend more than 10,000 Yen .. You get Free shipping .. and they have a discount if you bought more than 5 watches…

I ordered one myself today .. They have a modest list, with amazing prices.

The disadvantage is that destracting japanese sympol.. but for 26KD.. I shouldn’t complain. My dad thinks it’s very trendy and can be a perefect present for a close friend if I didn’t like it.. But I will learn to like it ^_^

My MARUKAWA chewing gum

August 2, 2007 at 2:34 pm (food, Japanese, Lifestyle, Shopping)

The one and only chewing gum that I wouldn’t live without. I didn’t think that they are popular in Kuwait and according to the manufacturer, Kuwait is one of 5 countries that they ship to, in the middle east.

In the UK, were it’s easy to buy Sushi’s ingredients and certain other items form the Far East, MARUKAWA’s products are not sold there. Actaully, they are not sold in the whole continent of Europe?!?!

I couldn’t order from Amazon, as the UK’s customs can be your best friend sometimes, and the last thing I wanted to happen, is to have a problem with them over few packs of chewing gums that are not worth more than 1KD which might jeopardize any shipment that I order.

So, Plan 1 for my summer; Buy as much as I can for September.^_^

Did you know that ‘The Tatto Buble Gum'(Check the following picture) is made by the same company ???

They have so many flavours but the ‘Melon’ Flavour is new to me!!!

Cinema: GO or Not TO GO

July 31, 2007 at 1:16 pm (Kuwait, Lifestyle, Movies, Personal)

I have never been a fan of ‘The Simpsons’ but If I came acros it on tv, I would leave everything and freeze inforn on the TV until the end of the episode. As everyone aware of the film’s release worldwide (which include Kuwait), Do you think I should bother watch it in Kuwait? I’m not a mall person, I’d rather spend time with my family strolling the beach, go to the farm togother and have quality time rather than visiting the mall like most kuwaitis. So, to go out with a group.. It’s movies time and at the moment.. there is nothing worth to spend money on. Fracture/Harry Potter/ Vacancy/ Stupid arabic movies and a couple of indian movies.. That’s what’s currently available, which is pathetic in a country with over 30 screens… My only option is ‘The Simpsons’ which I know for a fact will be censored and it’s running time will be reduced by 30 minutes minimum…

——

On a side note: why did they block a number of torrents sites again ??? and why the internent speeds here is very slow.. I  have DSL (512 kps) and I’m already complaning to my father in a daily basis ..

Tarsheed, slow internet , hot+ humid weather …. It’s too much *_*

Nando’s & Kuwait !!

July 24, 2007 at 1:15 am (food, Kuwait, Lifestyle, Restaurant)

Nando’s restaurants are one of the best restaurants that specialize in chicken (Not burgers, Thanks God) around the Globe. Well, that’s what I think anyway! I love their recipes that range from salads to grilled chicken. In addition to veggie burgers to our vegetarian friends. Didn’t I mention their specialized sauces. they vary from very hot, hot, medium & lime + herbs. Love it!  The food is tasty, fresh and pleasant especially under the dim lights with your friends ( A cozy feeling).  I don’t want to give a history lesson about the franchise but what’s bothering me, is that all most of the Arabic gulf countries have Nando’s Branches. That include; UAE, Qatar, Oman & KSA. Where is Kuwait from the list? I understand that the Burger industry is ridiculously escalating in Kuwait but why can’t we have well established restaurants being integrated within our community. It does hurt when my non-Kuwaiti friends talk about Kuwait inability or lets say lack of decent restaurants and in the same time, some Kuwaiti business man announce to the world that he’s opening ‘Hooters’ in Dubai. Well, We had a heated discussion today and I didn’t know what to say about that? They laughed, I was angry but I couldn’t reply because of that headache which wouldn’t go away. I’m thinking too much about my flight and I’m starting to feel agitated which is normal for me before any flights I take. I really hate flying. Anyway, Have you tried Nando’s? and if you tried it, Do you think that it should be opened in Kuwait anytime soon? And what’s your opinions in opening a new restaurants in Kuwait? Do you think it’s healthy attitude/ approach?My opinion is a little biased because I like Nando’s… although I think it’s funny how each country embrace different objects/ things ? In Kuwait, we love Café and restaurants; let’s not forget malls as well. In UAE, huge towers are being built and amazing fascinating resorts. In Qatar, A combination of what Kuwait & UAE are doing.
