40 Tons of Food Items Seized

24 Nov

According to Kuwait Times

”The Director General of Kuwait Municipality Ahmad Al-Sabeeh said yesterday that the capital’s municipality seized foodstuffs unfit for human consumption amounting to 40 tons, the biggest in the governorate’s history. Al-Sabeeh said in a statement to KUNA that the municipality’s emergency team seized the quantity in a sting against some depots in which they thwarted an attempt to promote the items among consumers through popular markets or groceries spread among the desert campers.”

Apparently some of the food dates back to 2001…that’s just gross.

Speaking of foods being seized. Could someone let me know if they see Aptamil AR milk, anywhere? Or, has it been seized too?

I have searched high and low and haven’t been able to find it anywhere, switched my baby to NOVALAC but it really isn’t agreeing with him. Would really like to get the APTAMIL AR. I have spoken to the Aptamil Supplier here in Kuwait and they have told me, ‘we have it in stock, it hasn’t been signed for release by the balidiya’….-that was three weeks ago and the situation has still not changed. 😦

You know, I’d just like to say, this isn’t ‘shampoo or cream’…it’s baby food, it’s vital that it’s available.

 

The real reason behind Morning Sickness

19 Nov

Guys, you can skip this post and move on to the next OR you can read it and share your thoughts.

Morning sickness, that dreaded thing that creeps up on your when you are pregnant…if you are lucky you will experience a few weeks at most but unfortunately for me, I had 9 months of it. At one stage it got so severe that I had to go to the hospital.

On average I was vomitting 9 times a day…on one particular day, I recall 15 times.This is a condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum (severe morning sickness). My obstetrician could give me no reason as to why I was being sick so much. I was prescribed with anti-sickness tablets which I was reluctant to take. It wasn’t pleasant and was quite scary. My throat felt raw, the enamel on my teeth was starting to erode. It was a truly horrible experience and that upset me. Pregnancy is supposed to be one of the best experiences of your life, all I have to say is I was glad to see that delivery room.

It got me thinking this morning, what IS the reason behind it?

Looking back, I had a normal diet, no different than any other pregnancy woman. I craved chocolate and all the other bad things you should crave but I also ate veg, fruit and had a ‘somewhat balanced diet’. I gained around 15kilo during my pregnancy -yes, alot. the average is 10…my baby arrived and was a dainty wee thing. Weighed just over 2kilo and I was full term when I delivered.

My reasoning for this post is …my baby is now lactose intolerant and it has got me thinking. Is that why I was sick so much? At the time, my baby was refusing all the ‘dairy products’ that were going into my body?

Anyone else had similiar experience? Did you eat alot of something and very little of something else? Was there anything particular that made you sick?

I always seemed to vomit after having tomatoes. I cut those out after my first trimester.

It’s an interesting angle to ‘morning sickness’…what if it is caused by a lactose intolerant foetus?

A simple search on google will bring you up thousands of questions:

‘Did you become lactose intolerant during pregnancy?’ – What if the answer is simple, it’s not you that is intolerant, it’s your foetus.

Just a thought to all women out there suffering from morning sickness, try cutting out your dairy products, you might be pleasantly surprised. I wish now I had thought of it. Next pregnancy it will be no dairy for me and calcium supplements!

 

 

IMO: This ANIMAL should get the death sentence

19 Nov

Bully isn’t the word that should be used here.

Monster seems better fitting.

”A 6ft 2in “selfish bully” has been jailed for life for the murder of his partner’s 15-month-old daughter.”

It seems that the child started to cry while he was playing his Xbox…this angered him…he then proceed to stamp on the 15month years old’s head.

A post mortem confirmed she had at least 35 separate injuries on her face and body, rib fractures and brain damage.

I hope this ANIMAL never gets out of jail. This is when the death sentence should be in place…for animals like this who don’t deserve to walk the streets ever again.

Gary Alcock and Claire FlanaganThis is him. This is the mother. She stood by and watched as she quote ‘didn’t want to lose her boyfriend’. Remember these two faces and should you see them in 10, 20years, don’t forget to SPIT at them.

Review: The American

16 Nov

Well, I’m not quite sure where to start. Hubby and I thought we’d have a romantic night in, put kids to bed early and watch a movie.

Well, George Clooney as an assassin- hmm yummy, or so I thought..

This movie is HORRIBLE. Absolutely HORRIBLE.

There has been more nudity than what you would see on a beach in Spain. And, I honestly feel like it should be X Rated. It’s horrible.

Word of advice; don’t bother watching it.

The story is typical- guy has to kill girl/falls in love/mission impossible. As for the acting, I’m sure the kids in our local schools could act better.

George Clooney has definitely lost his mojo.

 

On a scale of 1-10, how angry would you be?

15 Nov

So, above we have three cars, an aston martin, a porsche and Ronaldo’s famous bugatti crash pics. Three beautiful cars…so, on a scale of 1-10, how angry would you be?

The interesting thing about this post is…men and women are going to view it differently..

Men have already said, 10…oh, definitely, 10…and would have been moaning, ‘I can’t believe I crashed the porshe…damnit, I’m going to have to get it completely ‘resprayed’…

Women are saying the opposite…not 10. We would just be ‘thankful’ that we got out safe and alive and requesting that the car be towed and that we never see it ever again.

Right or wrong?
