I actually *vomited*

*Be warned*

360…nice shops but tacky decorations!

9 Nov

I’m sorry but, what happened after the architectural stage in 360? Nice building bes seriously, the decorations? This one was the only one I could get a shot of that had a clear view. What is it?
Even worse, a few metres from this there is what looks like a giant orange cabbage? Or was it supposed to be a peach?
They seriously went ‘classy’ on the stores, no MAX to be seen in there! But, what about the decoration? 100fils shop have nicer. LOL
I like 360 but really, sometimes I wonder… Why pay 70kd for trackie bottoms if you can find them for 8kd elsewhere? Lol.

a random thought

8 Nov

Why is the big red, white and blue country spending billions sending troops to afghanistan/pakistan/ (goodness knows where else) when there are children in africa starving to death.
How is it that so much money can be spent on wars and destruction, destruction that is not actually needed. Why not fix something that is actually ‘broken’? Instead, YOU, yes, YOU being the *blank* *blank* are spending millions on crap, basically.
Michael Jackson was right. We need to save this planet, protect it, make it better. How about by starting with the poor? Feed them. Give them clothes and fresh drinking water.
How about troops going on strike? Refusing to join? Why do these guys keep going to fight unnecessary battles? There is no war on terror. Leave these countries alone and maybe they will leave you alone too. What do you think? You reading this, Mr O?

Bye Bye Pen and Paper

6 Nov

What happened to pen and paper? Internet has taken over.

I miss pen and paper.

It’s sad to think, my daughter won’t have a diary. I had a diary since the age of 8. It was Winnie The Pooh and it had a lock on it. I kept it under my mattress and funnily enough, my mother never ever ‘sneaked’ to read it. Every night, I wrote down what I had done that day…what I had achieved, what I had found difficult… my daughter’s diary will be right here, this…a blog… I’m sure of it and I suppose, that’s ok.

Hell, my diary has become my blog to a certain extent. Years ago, when I first started off, in my late teens, my blogs were horrific…tears….tantrums…crushes…breakdowns…heartache…all rolled into one. I don’t know how my readers stayed with me for so many years. I hit 150,000 views in a year and stopped. It was a good blog. And, no, before you ask, not a chance am I telling you what it was called.

We all need to just ‘vent’ sometimes. This week, a friend ‘passed away’, well, it was suicide. Scary thing is, I’ve just got more details and apparently he didn’t trust anyone and thought that the majority of people that surrounded him were infact, ‘spies’….lordy lord, im not joking. Sad, tragic, infact…

I will encourage my teenage daughter to blog, venting is good, expressing oneself is always good. Blocking everything up inside is bad…really bad.

So, all mums out there, let your daughters blog… and to all ladies out there, say what you want, say how you feel, remember, it’s just a screen, no-one actually knows who you are 🙂

And to all those other mums with young daughter, get your daughter a diary and a pen!

Is gray hair ever fashionable?

4 Nov

Apparently so….

For decades men and women have been trying to mask signs of aging, but a new wave fashionable gray hair is reflecting a shifting attitude regarding the physical effects of getting older. Celebrities with gray hair are letting their natural roots show, and for their spring 2010 shows, Gareth Pugh, Giles Deacon and Proenza Schouler paraded models down the runways with silver locks.

I think I’ll stick with my Clairol number 7…

 

Arabomber on Girls…

2 Nov

Remember a few days ago, I posted the ‘How to be Kuwaitia’ …well…guess what! This guy has FINALLY got a blog AND it’s up and running RIGHT NOW! Yayy!

And ladies…he also did an interview with Desert Blvd..

Here’s what he had to say:

What do you see in your Future Wife? Personality and looks wise

VA: Oh man… here we go with the tough questions lol. It’s like how to be a millionaire the higher you go, the harder it gets.
Ill sum it all up in one step baby.
– A lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets. WOO!
Ok long pause… awkwardness fades slowly.
No, seriously.
Just off the top of my head, of what I see in the perfect wife.
1) Loving & caring to kids (I love kids, if I had a choice the more kids the better.)
2) Open-minded but respects her culture and her roots.
3) Someone who seems to fit in with my family, juuuust right. Like a missing puzzle piece.
4) Not a party girl. Hate them. Miami too many, ble5.
5) Not your typical Kuwaiti girl, I like them casual, none of that dress up EVERYDAY crap. I would love to see one day in Kuwait, a girl that just wear a pair of jeans and a shirt. (Sexiest thing ever in my book) It’s nice to dress up for sure, but everyday… is just pushing it.
6) Doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty, kick it and play some ball.
7) Hate, hate, haaaate make up. Just like you don’t want to be touching a head of hair filled with gel, I don’t want to be wiping off your mask when I touch your face…. I know girls that are absolutely beautiful without makeup, and they just have to ruin it. Once again, don’t mind it once in a while. It’s the everyday that kills it.
8) I hit the gym, I do my part, tend to be pretty active. Would be nice if she kind of put in the effort too. Put in your fair share of squats you know what I’m saying, keep that booty tight LOL. (Ugh.. a lil too much info..) I don’t eat any fast food, pretty strict healthy diet. So yeah.
9) When you say physical trait its tough to say, Cause I honestly don’t have a specific requirement. All I want is someone who looks after herself. How big your cha-chas play no role in being my wife.
(Man… I hope my mom doesn’t read this lol.)
10) The last step and most important one: “Good hearted.” Underline and bold this baby.
Maaaaan this is sooo important. Truly believe that this world is created with two types of people. People who are evil selfish, and just plain evil! And then you have the good-hearted compassionate people, its something I can just tell off the bat, I call it the “vibe” If I get a good vibe from you then we heading the right way. Just Good hearted.
Ok now I’m speaking gibberish.
To sum it all up: Personality:
-Goodhearted.
-Open minded.
-Loving & caring.
-Honesty. Have to be honest with each other.
Physical:
-Takes care of herself
-Not always dressed up, casual wear.
-Make up = Icky

 

So, there you have it……… NO makeup, not always dressed up ( I DITTO THAT (VA) I HATE GIRLS THAT GO SHOPPING IN HEELS!! WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THAT?! FAKE, FAKE, FAKE …and I am a girl ! ) LOL

Viva…sort it out

2 Nov

Why the hell are VIVA blocking out websites that aren’t even pornographic?! There is nothing wrong with them!!!

Tried to get on http://www.expatriates.com as sometimes they sell stuff there which is actually pretty decent, western expats selling stuff that has only been used once or twice because they are leaving.

This is just silly.

SORT IT OUT VIVA.

Update: Ok, pretty impressive, VIVA got back to me within 10minutes of posting this, with this………

”Dear Babble

Thanks for your interest in VIVA internet , we will check and get back to you shortly.

Best Regards
VIVA Online Team”

THEN I GOT THIS

”Dear Babble Q8

we Have this Blocked by the ministry Of communications

Thanks again for using viva internet”

Now, here is my question. Why are the Ministry of Communications blocking websites that are actually helping others?

This particular website is one which is very useful to expats who have recently arrived in Kuwait. This website gives advice re: malls, locations of churches/mosques and other tourist attractions………MOC- WHY ARE YOU BLOCKING A FAMILY FRIENDLY WEBSITE?

5 little letters…

1 Nov

There is a word that we all may say, that we don’t hear often enough. Sorry – an expression, a regret.

What does it mean to say sorry? Why should you say sorry? When should you say sorry?

First and foremost, saying sorry shouldn’t come naturally, it shouldn’t fall off the end of your tongue like please and thank you. You cant fuck up and then say sorry. The world doesn’t work like that. America didn’t bomb iraq and then say, ‘oh, we’re sorry’. You must face the consequences of your actions.

People get hurt. People feel ashamed. People feel neglected. People feel all sorts of things when you make a mistake. Saying sorry doesn’t make it all ok. Life can’t just ‘roll on’. You can’t just ‘pick up’ where you left of.

Sorry is an easy word. You bang into someone in the supermarket, ‘Oh, I’m sorry love’.

When it comes to relationships, it is different.

Here are a few examples:

A friend told me: I found my husband ‘chatting’ with girls online but he said, ‘sorry’. – and that makes it ok? sorry, makes everything ok? No, it doesn’t.

Another friend found her husband had lost his job and was leaving the house everyday and going to a cafe to ‘pretend’ he was going to work. When she found out, he said, ‘sorry, but I didn’t want you to feel ashamed of me’. – this ‘sorry’, is ok. This ‘sorry’ came from the heart. The reason this man didn’t tell his wife was because of shame. In the above story of the ‘online flirt’, the husband didn’t tell the wife because ‘he thought it was enough, he thought his little online obsession would never ‘get out’.

Well, gentlemen, sometimes SORRY isn’t enough. why? Because there is so much more that sometimes need fixed.

You forget that men and women are built differently.

We aren’t meant to feel the same. Women are much more sensitive than men, why? who knows? perhaps, it comes down to the fact we are the child-bearers. We are the queens of the house.

There is TRUST, LOYALTY and RESPECT. Those need FIXED also during a time of betrayal.

A two hour long arguing session cannot end in, ‘I’m sorry’.

A discussion needs to take place. Two people must have the floor to talk. It must come from both sides and the problem must be addressed. The reasons behind the problem must be address and the conclusion as to how to get ‘over’ the problem must be attempted to be accomplished. Things don’t get fixed in five minutes. They aren’t supposed to. Sometimes they take months. Sometimes there isn’t always an answer. There has to be a mutual agreement. One person cannot make a ‘flat out’ yes or no answer.

Yes, to some extent there should be a decision maker BUT it’s hard to choose who. Some might say, it’s the male’s choice, some might say, no it’s the females. Religion and Culture should not even enter the equation.

What you both want from your marriage, your future and for your kids should be the equation.

Your family and her family shouldn’t enter the subject either.

Whether she respects your family or you respect hers doesn’t even matter.

Your family is YOUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY. That’s a husband, a wife and children. NO INLAWS OR OUTLAWS.

Marriage is more than a piece of paper. It’s a contract. Bound for life. In sickness and in health. For richer or for poorer. All marriages have ups and downs. Life has lots of crossroads…it’s your choice which road you choose to take.
