The Worm is Full

I have always prided myself in being a reader; a bookworm.
I'm always reading. I carry my book with me wherever i go.

But lately I've hit a dry spell. My book worm is full. Or my brain is dead.
I miss passionately reading. Where i cant put the book down. Where id be fighting sleep just to get to the last page.

I need my reading mojo back.

This summer i found a jewel of a bookstore. Ill post about it later.

What was the last amazing book you guys read?

Persimmon aka Kakah

This is NOT a tomato!
I was surprised by the amount of people that did not know this wonderful fruit.
You guys are missing out!!

The fact that i took time out of my day to actually write about it, should be a great testament to what a great fruit this is.

Kakah has many many health benefits. It is rich in fiber, iron, vitamin C & A, just to name a few.

If you have never tried this fruit go out and get yourself some. They are available in any of your local coops.

Make sure the fruit is ripe and soft. (not brown)
If the fruit is not ripe it'll have a bitter after taste & you don't want that.

The skin is edible too, although i don't prefer it.

It is in season so go knock yourself out and tell me what you think of it .

عاصفة الصحراء

i was so excited when i found out about the documentary on the invasion of kuwait.
Starting august second and ending on the day of liberation.

I thought wow finally something of significance. I was only 5 years old when the war took place, so i was looking forward to educating myself about it. Reliving what my country has went through.

I asked all my little cousins to watch. This is our history i said. Watch and learn. Since our schools barely touch on the subject.

I am EXTREMELY disappointed. Its the same 3 scenes played over and over again.
I wanted to see the Kuwaiti people. their day to day lives.

The political scenes are so monotonous. there was nothing pulling me to watch.
Me, a citizen of this country, so i can only imagine people that weren't affected by the invasion.

I have watched a dozen documentaries on world war II and loved them.

but this ... its sad how mediocre it is.

Id rather they made it short and interesting. Than long and bromidic. bromidic

Healthy Life Style

In my never ending attempt to eat better i started using lactose free milk.
The thing is, directions on the box clearly state consume within 3 days of opening.

Im not a big fan of milk.

I'll have a little with my tea, and pour some over my cereal.
I CANNOT finish 1 liter in 3 days.

And i hate wasting food.

I tried finding lacto free in smaller packs. But to no avail :(

By the way, its not easy turning your eating habits around, and its way more expensive than i thought it would be.

I know its worth it. maybe. perhaps.

i also discovered many things i was unaware of. Its a whole new world out there!

and a very long learning process.

I found fellow bloggers organickuwait, and fahad to be a great great help, and very inspiring.

check em out !
