Diet Baby Food

14 Oct

I am DISGUSTED.

Today, in lulu, I was browsing the baby food aisle………………………..yes, you guessed it, I spotted BABY DIET FOOD!!

HARAAAAAAAAAAAAM TO ANYONE THAT WOULD GIVE THEIR BABY DIET BABY FOOD!

FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!

Let your child eat fruit and veg and EXERCISE!!!!!!!!!!

ANGERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR AAAAAAAH 10.10.

SHAME ON YOU LULU – GET THIS OFF YOUR SHELVES!!!!!!!!!!

Not just our tomatoes…there goes the Zubaidi too….

11 Oct

So, we aren’t only paying 800fils per kilo for tomatoes…our fish prices just soared too. When will this stop?

We are turning into the UK…soon Kuwait will be introducing tax.Look at the above picture, for those that don’t know the conversions…that’s around 2.2kd per kilo……..good aul harrods eh? Charging that much for French tomatoes………………LOL. Ridiculous.

Zubaidi is now sitting at about 12kd per kilo.

For goodness sake, it’s just fish!!!

So, we’re all to stop eating meat and ‘fruit’ (since Tomato is actually a fruit not a veg) and eat what exactly?

It’s green beans from here on in.

Perhaps we should all just try the baby diet………..pureed broccoli and potatoes.

You can read more about these price hiked here over at the Kuwait Times and another article, Zubaidi or Gold.

I’m back!

Sorry guys, completely mad weekend! 

Kids sick and I had a fight with a blender.

All back to normal now though, well, almost. Typing with a bandaged thumb is proving quite difficult.

Mais Alghanim

12 Sep
Mixed Grill

So, on the 1st day of Eid, family and I had lunch at Mais Alghanim in Abu Halifa.

Thought I would share my experience with you all.

So, when we arrived, it wasn’t that busy, plenty of empty tables and we were seated within two minutes, no hanging around which I love.

The only downfall was that I had my stroller with me and there were about 25steps to climb up.

We ordered within a few minutes and our ‘appetizers’ arrived about 5minutes later.

The only downfall was that, for some reason, there was no music on in the background until about five minutes before we left. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes it is nice to eat without music being blasted through the place but there is no harm in low volume background music unlike Applebees who insist on having their speakers turned up full…and it’s so loud that you can’t hear yourself speak………

The food arrived quickly and was delicious. We ordered a whole variety of everything yani, taboula, fatouch, baba ghanouj, Khiyar bil Laban, accompanied with a mixed grill.

Comparing Mais Aghanim to Villa Fayrouz and Al Balad, I would say, Al Balad’s Potato with Corriander is definitely much nicer and Villa Fayrouz’s Fatouch is better too.  Each to their own though.

Overall, it wasn’t a bad experience and I would definitely go again.

More bargains at LuLu!

5 Sep

Stopped by LuLu last nite… I was amazed, yet again, they have restocked. By that I mean, there was so much more than there was before, yani, more english food and more american food!

Right now, just above the bread aisle they have put a new section.

They had literally everything english you could think of… munchies, alpen, quavers, muesli (in every flavor), ambrosia custard, ambrosia rice, slim fast drinks, a whole variety of new crisps, remember salt and shake? Well, yep, they have those now too…

I really wanted to just take a video as I walked around but they have the whole ‘no photography’ up now, which is silly really…

What was interesting tho was the huge amount of fruit that they have! I found all sorts!I did take a few pictures as some looked really unsual. I found this thing and there was no name on it, im going to try and find a picture on google and let everyone see…it was really weird.

They now have those sauces , Coleman’s ones… I noticed, curry sauce, parsley sauce, sausage caserole and spaghetti bolognese…all Coleman’s. I hope they get more. I love these!

Safe to say… I still HEART LuLu…
