afternoon naps during ramadan

Don’t you just love afternoon naps during ramadan. Around 1pm, I always decide to have a nap. The problem is: my naps turn into 4 hour sleeps 😦 and then I can’t sleep at night. Sucks to be me.I can’t help it, I totally heart my duvet and bed!

My children are hyper!

Jujubes candy

The above leads to hyperactivity in my children...

So, every year, mid-ramadan we have Gurgian!

Gurgian is now finished and we have far too much candy in our house! I’m thinking we should take some down to the orphanage in Kuwait and give to the kids there..

Next year, I’m going to limit the amount that I let my kids eat………….

One is climbing the walls……..the other jumping over the sofa…….and the third is screaming at the TV…….definitely too much candy!

God help me.

So fish’n’chips has hit Kuwait- I remember a few years back there was one for a while near La Baguette in Salmiya- whatever happened it?

Anyway there are two places to head to this Ramadan for your chip buttie feast- Organica in Mangaf and Morning & Evening in Fahaheel-  the former charging 5KD for a portion of fish and chips and the latter only 1KD800…….take your pick. Eating out at Organica will set you back a staggering  25KD for a family meal- better be some damned good batter for that price.

What’s burning in your house this Ramadan?

20 Aug

Is it the muchboos? Katayef? Taouk? Or…is it the latest craze to hit Kuwait? Yes, you’ve guessed it… Oil Burners!

Is it time to say good-bye to our beloved bakhoor?


I noticed recently that my mil has stopped burning bakhoor and has not got herself a beautiful, little red oil burner. I was shocked to say the least but after speaking with friends it appears their mothers are doing the same thing! It’s nice to smell something other than bakhoor to be honest, sometimes I just find it too strong! Last night after my regular visit for fatoor, I came home smelling of jasmine! Nice! You can find these oil burners in sultan centre, centrepoint and even Ikea. The prices range from 1.500kd – 9kd depending on shape, size and decor.
