To Fail Miserably

My Friend F is working with a few people running for the KDA (Kuwait Dental Association.)

A couple of days ago she held a gathering at her place in which a Dr was going to speak.

All week long soos and I helped her plan the whole thing.

She did a fantastic job!

I loved the set up. F. went to a lot of trouble.

Everything was perfect. Except for the fact no one showed up.

Less than 10 people were there in total.

We invited over 100 people. 75 of them told us they were coming for sure.

The first time we invited them they told us they'll be there. And when we double checked two days before the actual event, they told us they'll show up.

Then suddenly on the day of the event. Poof! everyone got food poisoning, had a meeting to go to. Lost their fones.

It was so damn RUDE. My god seriously what is wrong with people!

Ya3ni if they had told us from the beginning they cant show up then they would have at least spared F the time and trouble!

When will people learn!

I'm so disappointed in everyone!

3aib wallah 3aiiiib!

Rice - Cheese

Anyone know where I can find rice- cheese in Kuwait?

Rice cheese is a cheese alternative (rice based instead of milk based).
Since I cant stand real cheese, i decided to give rice cheese a try.

Its an excellent source of calcium without cholesterol, trans fat or lactose.

Has anyone ever tried it before?
or even heard of it for that matter!

I cant stand rude people.

I was in the coop today.
As i was standing in line waiting to pay an Indian man stood behind be with only two bags of bread.

We waited for a good ten minits.
As i was paying i heard the Indian man say No No mayseer.
I looked behind me and saw a man in a dishdasha has cut in front of him
and placed 5 bottles of barbican on the counter.

I was in front of you said the Indian, you cant cut in.

So the dishdasha guy answers I only have these 5 bottles.
The Indian said no i go first.

there was no one behind him by the way, all the guy had to do was wait for the man to pay for his bread.

Then the man, as if he wasn't rude enough, grabs a pen that was in the Indian mans pocket and told him if you don't shut up I'm going to shove this down your throat.

HEY! i said loudly without thinking.

He was behind me and he's gonna go first.

The man looks at me and says i only have 5 bottles.

I told him so what theres something called a que, and if you would have stood behind the man like your supposed to we would all be home right now.

I grabbed the two bags of bread from the Indian mans hand and told the cashier to ring em up.



when i told my mom the salfa she told me to never get involved!
cause people who are rude, are rude to everyone, and i should never put myself in a position like that again.

I get where shes coming from, but i was so angry i didn't think before i spoke, and 7aram no one would have stood up for the man if i hadn't!

I Feel The Ground Move Under My Feet

There is only one specific moment in my life when i felt my whole world tumbling down.
when i felt everything i know and hold dear shatter to a million pieces .

I remember the date .. july 2nd.
I remember where i was sitting, what i was wearing.
I remember how slowly, very slowly, the room went blank.

and all i wanted to do was cover my ears with both my hands and scream.
Scream till i had no voice left. Scream till i fall over from utter exhaustion.

I never wanted to feel that way ever again. Ever.

But today, my world shifted again.
My head is pounding, and for the first time in 3 years im struggling to keep my anger at bay.

I want to bang my head against the wall and split it in half like a ripe watermelon just to stop the pounding.

I'm scared and confused.

When did this happen. How could i have ignored all the signs?
and i did ignore them. Until it hit me right in the gut.

The sound of fist to flesh woke me.

I could taste the blood in my mouth, although no one laid a hand on me.

In times like these i never underestimate the power of prayer.

اللهم لا أسألك رد القضاء ولكن أسألك اللطف فيه

i need your prayers. I need this to go away. I need it t be nothing more than my imagination. I need to fix it right now.
Please God.

Mothers Day Gift

Every year I try to get my mom something extra nice for mothers day.
I usually have something picked out weeks in advance.

This year i have absolutely no idea what to get her!
and im totally BROKE!

I have to check how much is available in my account, but i know its not much.

I was hoping to get her something from Hermes that she had her eye on for sometime.

Id be lucky law i can get her something from the coop! (ok its not that bad, but its bad!)

I usually buy my aunts something every year too, something small but meaningful.

I'm all out of ideas!


What are you getting your mamas for mothers day?

Inexcusable Excuses

People always find a way to make excuses for themselves
rationalizing their behavior.
Their angry reactions or rude responses.

I was under a lot of pressure
I didn't sleep well
I don't know what I was thinking.

Bottom line is no matter what the circumstance that lead u to behave the way you did, it doesn't matter.
No one cares.

You still behaved like a total ass.

Just bite the bullet and apologize.

Why is it so hard for people to say the word sorry?

7- home cooked meals in the desert. when i visit my families camp site and they cook machboos or something i cant eat it. i just cant. barbecue maybe

8- since i started work i never once used the kettle to make myself tea. I dont know who washes it or how often its washed.

Dealing With Free Time

For the first time in my life i have nothing to do.

I leave work and then .... nothing!

I don't have to study, prepare for an exam, get ready for class.

I don't need the 67 calenders I usually have all over the place.

I don't have to run on a strict schedule.

My mind is free, and it feels so WEIRD.

I'm having a hard time adjusting to this feeling. This emptiness.

Its one thing to be on vacation. Even then I'm thinking of when i get back to school.

I'm seriously thinking of acquiring a hobby.

My god, med school never gave me time to do ANYTHING.

And now all this damned free time is messing with my head.

Did anyone else go through this?

Luxor & Aswan: A Series Of Bad Pictures 2

(dental instruments)

My friends and I took a four day Nile cruise to the ancient Egyptian temples, graves, and ruins in Luxor and Aswan Egypt.

There is nothing like seeing these things in real life. Nothing like being up close and touching them.

Those Egyptians were geniuses. how they managed to build all that with no machines whatsoever is truly a wonder.

If you have a chance to go, don't miss it !

We had a great time!
