Oula Station Supermarket now Open!

25 Nov


So, seems Oula have opened their supermarket! I think this is great, BUT, what if people start sitting outside ‘beeping’ their horns like they do at the baqalas, this will be a nightmare.
SO, PLEASE, I’m BEGGING you, GET OUT OF YOUR CARS, form an orderly queue and start using the brain that you were born with.

This includes Foursquare, Gowalla, Loopt, Brightkite, Yelp and Google Latitude. Topguest then flags check-ins at certain places and shows you how far away you are from gaining a reward.

Thanks to Fahad

24 Nov

So, everyone knows that Fahad went LIVE and it’s great news for all of us.

I want to personally THANK Fahad for the time that he takes to help all of us and answer those questions that we need answered.

Please remember, Fahad is doing this FREE.

He has a business to run and spends alot of his free time giving out tips/advice. We really appreciate it Fahad and thanks for shedding light on diet and exercise and making it not so ‘taboo’ to talk about.

We shouldn’t be ashamed if we have gained a few kilos (or more!!). We should be happy that we realise we need to change. We need to go ‘back to how we were before’.Without you, it might not have been possible. Thanks again.

Fahad has some great articles over on his site on how you can achieve your goal. Be nice to him and always remember to say THANK YOU!

Yum Yum: Rhubarb Crumble

24 Nov

So, I always run out of ideas, never know what to make my hubby for dessert and boy, does he love his desserts! So, tonight, I decided to try Rhubarb Crumble. It went down a treat! He loved it! Brownie points for me!!

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Cut the rhubarb into 7½cm/3in long sticks and place on an oven tray, sprinkle with the water and caster sugar and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the oven, sprinkle over the ginger and mix well. Fill an ovenproof dish about 4cm/1½in deep with the rhubarb. Rub the butter into the flour and sugar to make the crumble topping. Sprinkle over the rhubarb and bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes, or until the crumble topping is crisp and golden-brown and the rhubarb filling has softened and is bubbling. Remove and allow to cool slightly before serving with double cream.

Here’s what you need:

  • 10 sticks of rhubarb (you can get this in LuLu Hypermarket!)
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 8 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger
  • 4 ounces of butter
  • 4 ounces of demerara sugar (you can get this in Sultan Centre)
  • 6 ounces of flour

As a child, I didn’t watch much TV

24 Nov

First of all, I’m a mum. I let my kid watch TV. I don’t see the harm in it. Of course, I would never let him/her  sit in front of the TV all day but, he/she does get 30minutes in the morning and 30minutes in the afternoon.

How do you feel about it?

I have researched alot on this subject and too much television has been linked to ADHD, OCD, Autism. So, what’s your view?

Does it? Is it detrimental to your child? Is it my responsibility to not let my kids watch TV?

I think 30minutes a day does no harm when they are young and when my kids are old enough to go to school, I will reward them with 30minutes TV a day IF and WHEN they finish their homework.

As a child, I didn’t sit and watch TV after school, I went out for walks, rode my bicycle and visited friends houses and played ‘teacher/pupil’ or ‘families’…On a Saturday, I was allowed to watch TV from 8 – 10am and that was it, I was sent outside to play. I’m glad that my parents did raise me that way, even now, I’m not a ‘TV’ person. I rarely sit down to watch anything. I have, of course, my favourites series which I would never miss, but I would never sit down at 5 in front of the TV and spend the night in front of it. That would drive me crazy. Instead, I go out with hubby shopping, go for walks, blog, read a book or listen to music.

Anyway, I’ve kind of gone off what I was talking about, what do you think?

Does TV do more damage than good?
