Check out these architectural designs from the outside… I wonder what the floor plans look like on the inside.
So this American guy named Brian that I just met last month (Dec. 2012) gave me these candies yesterday that he got from Kuwait. He was telling me how different they look and taste but little did he know I used to live there. You probably already know this but some stuff found overseas aren’t […]
When the construction crew starting working outside of my Mahboula, Kuwait apartment; I thought they were going to build a new high-rise building next to mine. I lived on the 5th floor and didn’t have the best view in the world to begin with but at least I wasn’t looking directly into someone […]
“Happy Hump Day” I’m sorry but I just had to post that, lol. Here’s a few souvenirs I’ve collected, while traveling. Do you notice a theme? The reddish camel below is the only one that I didn’t personally purchase. My sister Monica gave it to me as a gift after her visit to Egypt.
This is what the immigration line looks like at the Kuwait International Airport (KWI). For work-related reasons I’ve traveled in and out of this country eight times and went through the same process each time I returned; which was four times by the way. Oh boy what fun, uhh yeah that was me being sarcastic. […]
This was a fun activity day at the school. Each classroom dressed up like they were from different countries. The children made a colorful dragon in art class. In Kuwait school/work days are Sunday-Thursday. Friday-Saturday is the weekend. The majority of the population Muslim. Jumu’ah (Friday Prayers) are done inside the Mosque. Muslim men […]
I can always appreciate beautiful architecture when I see it. There’s a restaurant inside where I ate dinner once with my sister & her friend. Here is another photo that I took while visiting “Cartoon Network” (an indoor theme park in Kuwait City) so you can see both painted towers & real Kuwait Towers in […]
My dad likes Pepsi, my mom likes Coke, my BFF likes coffee, and I like watermelon/fruit juice. In Kuwait fresh fruit stands are not hard to find. Pat & and I visited this one place and they blended fresh fruit into vanilla ice cream. That smoothie shake was so delish! It’s nice dining out […]
My sister Ace is the general manager at Starbucks so I asked my BFF to stand in front of this sign so I could email it to her. It reads: STARBUCKS COFFEE in Arabic. Pat looks so silly rubbing his belly and pointing to the sign. Talk about playing it up for the camera…
I haven’t ever really been into purses but what else looks cute that can hold my stuff? I prefer one that is medium to large that way everything can fit inside. I usually wear the same purse until it literally falls apart then it’s on to the next one. This is by far the cutest bag I […]
This is stuff I found while browsing the net. Check back every Monday for more… Joke of the Week: A friend and I were standing in line at a fast-food restaurant, waiting to place our order. There was a big sign posted. “No bills larger than $20 will be accepted.” The woman in front of […]
I’m not a big soda drinker. I’ll occasionally drink a Vernors Ginger Ale but I usually just drink water and juice. In Kuwait they have lemon mint flavored juice that tastes really good or at least I think so. Last December the stores in America had eggless soy nog which I liked as well. I don’t […]
My sister Monica treated me to lunch at a restaurant in Kuwait called Slider Station. I haven’t heard of this place before eating there today. I ordered some chicken sliders. One was named Barack Obama and the red color bun slider was referred to as Michael Jackson. They were both tasty but I enjoyed Obama […]
