*عــــــــــيــــــــــدكـــم مبــــــــــــــــــــــــــــارك*




و رحل الحبيب... 
 إن القلب ليحزن...
و العين لتدمع...
حزناً...
 لألم الفراق و الإشتياق...
و فرحاً...
 بالطاعات و التقرب من الرزاق...
عسى أن يطيل المولى في أعمارنا لنلتقيه من جديد أعواماً عديدة...

و كل عام و أنتم بخير

What's Wrong with my Pictures??!!!



What's Wrong with my Pictures??!!!



So, here I am, after a long time off my beloved blog, and after a hard-working semester, I come, with all my love and passion, missing my dear blog, to find this!





What the hell is going on??!!!

Please, someone tell me! My heart is already aching! I thought it was just my browser, so I checked my blog on my mobile and I got the same thing! What is that?? Why am I missing my photos! I was just checking my blog a day or two ago and everything was fine!

I tried opening and saving a picture but it was saved just the way it is appearing on the shot! Black with that warning sign!




It seems like the pictures are only ones not appearing; the videos and the pics in the links are still visible:







OH!!!


Waaait a minute...



I think I know what happened!!

I must have deleted all my pictures from my Picasa album!

OMG!!!!

But what the..., I thought I was deleting those from my mobile memory only! Not from the actual online Picasa album!!

OMG!!


OH MY GOOOOOD!!!


How do I restore them!!

How! HOWWWWW! I LOST EVERYTHING!!!


Ahhhhhh! I want to cry now!


What a way to start my short one week summer vacation!!!

Ahhhhhh!!!


Please! Anyone!!


HELP!!!!

R.I.P Meow! They Didn't Really Care About You!



My mom just informed with the saddest news; the death of Meow, the acclaimed heaviest kitty in the world. Immediately I was fluctuating between feeling sad and angry.


(picture credit: bestweekever.tv)


Right now I'm crying.

How could they let him get so fat? It's not like kitties would naturally be overweight! And he was obese?!! This is just infuriating me! Did you know that he was just two years old? HE WAS JUST TWO!!!

This is NOT ACCEPTABLE! 

NOT ACCEPTABLE! 

NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!



Picture credit: sfhumanesociety.org)


Poor Meow, they didn't really care about you*...

I hope you rest in peace <3



*****


I would like to thank all of those who cared and loved about this precious kitty, people at the Santa Fe Shelter and all other animal shelters around the world. Truly, people who work at these places, and everyone else who genuinely cares about the care of animals, you guys do a great job. I salute you.



Read more about this story here: sfhumanesociety.org



________________________________________________________________

*I'm not incriminating a specific person here, I'm only saying that whoever let that kitty get into that miserable shape must not have really cared about the possible consequences of overfeeding this helpless animal.

New Blog Template!




I think it's about time I changed the blog's template! LOL


Old

New


What d'ya think? Like it? Hate it? Personally I loved the previous one's colors most, but the layout was a bit of a problem here & there. The biggest is that it wasn't that adjustable. So, it had to go...

The Watermark template is what's it's called, & baby it's so adjustable! I'm in love with the bigger space! I'm still not so sure about the colors, though. Well, guess I just need to get used to it! ;P

Rambling Thoughts...




Okay...

I don't know... How to describe what I'm going through right now...

I'll just type away what comes out...

I feel happy, sad, and agitated all at the same time??

I feel like crying but with a smile upon my face...

I feel like laying down resting my aching stressed-out body...

But I... *sigh*

I guess, I know what causes these stirs of emotions...

I just refuse to acknowledge it...

It's so sweet... like chocolate...

Too beautiful... too delicious...

But too much of it can leave you sick...

*chokes up*

I hate getting emotional...

I hate it!!! I HATE it!

Damn it, where are the tissues!!

Oh, it's getting hot in here... 

I need some fresh air...

*sniff*sniff*


*****


Why there is so much injustice in this world??

Why do innocent people have to suffer?

More importantly, why do I care???

WHY DO I CARE???

I hate this feeling!! I just feel all choked up and helpless...

There are so many things I wish I could do... 

But I can't... I'm helpless...

I just cry...

And feel even worse...


*****


There is so much beauty in this world...

I don't always see it...

I'm too busy taking it for granted...

The rare moments when I slow down or when I'm hurt...

Is when I realize I missed so much...

I wasted years of my life just not being as productive as I wished...

People shower me with mountains of applause and compliments...

But I don't see justice...

I know I can give out more... 

But I don't...

I'm too afraid...

But why am I so afraid?!!!

What is it that others have and I don't?

I know I am far better than so many, but they have reached far much than I did...

Why???

Am I so slow?

But is it speed I need?

Are we in a race???

Am I being the bunny and they're the tortoise? 

Have I been sleeping my way to success?

Perhaps so...

But my egotistic confidence have long gone...

I'm too confused...

Too scared to move another square...

I might go back to the first again...

*sigh*


*****


I need to have faith...

Keep what's buried under all these demons...

And get even more...

I need to be stronger...

I'm too sick...

Too sick of keeping my eyes shut...

Too sick of these heartaches and anxieties...

Too tired of being too tired...

Great... Now I have a headache...

Hee hee that made me smile...

Okay... 

Enough venting...

*Takes a deep breath*

Mom's Love


Today is Mother's Day...

To a lot of people it's a day where they would shower their moms with gifts, flowers and such. That is sweet, indeed, but what about the rest of the year? Most people won't even bother to pick up the phone to check upon their moms.

But no matter what we give, it won't ever be enough.

If we just show a little more respect, then wouldn't be that the kind of love every mother deserves?





I remember watching the same story shared on the video above on a AbdulAziz Al-Mussalam series one day; I wonder what's the origin of that story...

It's wonderful regardless.

It just shows that no matter how badly you think of your mother, and how much you can never understand her (even if you have kids of your own sometimes), you can't truly see the way she cares about you, let alone ever repay here deeds.

For all those times you've kept her awake at night just for a stupid meaningless thing (mostly, just in your own eyes), remember that you hold the greatest treasure to the road to heaven.

Don't lose the key.

On a funny note...





Allah Bless All Mothers & Fathers...

I won Danderma's 20,000 Comment Giveaway!









Dear Danderma was having a special giveaway for the 20,000 comment owner...





And...




I...











WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!








OH MY GOD!


I still can't believe it!


I'm not the type of person that usually wins free stuff! heehee

Let alone stuff that are worthy!


So, it feels so FUN!!


Thanks to Danderma for conducting such a beautiful giveaway! I wasn't anticipating winning. I wasn't even looking closely at the picture that well to begin with! When I realized that "I",  Just A Bunch have really won, and I wasn't hallucinating (I was really feeling tired and needed to sleep), I went back to the site (I first saw the notification post on mobile) to check what I have won! LOOOL

An Apple TV!

Then it hit me, I was like, oh, yeah, I think I have spotted some gadget thingy going on when I first saw the special post earlier today, but I didn't really focus and it's as if I never saw what the prize is!

To be frank, I still have very little knowledge about what an Apple TV is really like! LOL All I know that it's an Apple product, related to TV, and Danderma is giving away one, so it must be great!



THANKS DANDERMA!

:D


*****


Would you like to win something cool too? Well, why not hop over to Danderma's, be a dedicated reader, and stay tuned for future wonderful posts by the lovely Danderma? Who knows, maybe YOU will be the next winner of a cooler giveaway one day! :D

Customs Strike Affected My Salad Dressing Preference!! >:(






Thanks to the strike at Kuwait customs, I had to season my salad with the artificial salad dressing (which I happen to dislike) instead of my preferred fresh yogurt which had run out of stock*. 


When will this ridiculousness end???

Seriously? 



*According to Kuwaitful and word-of-mouth.

Dusting Off, Already??



Picture taken today


Good morning!! How's everyone doing in this time of year? ;D

The time of dust and (soon) Sarrayat??

In the past few days, I've locked myself at home (not deliberately; I just didn't have anything to do outside), so I missed most of the worst of the dusty weather, but even with staying home, I could still face the outcomes of those tiny little specs of dust!!

It's just AMAZING how dust covers everything in what seems like the speed of light! Freshly wiped surfaces quickly swift into surfaces that seem to have not been dusted off in weeks! *cough!*

I could smell the dust everywhere! I could feel it on my face! I feel like dusting off everything in the house just to let all the dust come out! *cough!*cough!*

But if there's one thing I love about dust, is that it smells so incredibly addicting when it's mixed with water.... oh... my... God... I just LOOOOVE that smell!!!!

I always feel it should be made into a perfume! heehee


Picture taken a few days ago


But today seems like a good day! The dust is visibly wearing off (it's still there, though), and hopefully it will be even better in the next few hours.

However, that doesn't mean it's off for good; this type of weather is tricky and unpredictable, so be careful.

I hope everyone takes care during dusty days, especially those with respiratory problems, try to stay away from dust as much as possible.

Aaaaannnd for Allah's sake!!! Stop "complaining" about the weather, people! It's Allah's doing and he knows best! And in case you didn't know, dust has many benefits! Go educate yourselves!

Peace!!!





Purina Ad Made Me Cry :'(



I'm in tears now...

I never expected to be crying while watching this:





I miss having cats around!!! :'(((((

Happy National Spirit Continues + Special Thanks



Happy Liberation Day

Hope everyone is having fun celebrating! 




How's everyone celebrating the national holidays? :D Where did you do yesterday? What are your plans for today? I wished to attend the Maseera yesterday, but due the rainy weather it was canceled, so we stayed indoors. Saturday is our weekly family gathering, so for sweet time we made sure to celebrate with special patriotic delights!




For those of you who follow me on twitter, you might have read that I've been craving some Chocolateness!! Yep, those super delicious pieces of love! So, I HAAAAAD to have some for today! I just loooove those yummy little monsters! In celebration of the country's beloved festivities, Chocolateness is having a wonderful offer, for any 10 K.D transaction, you get half a dozen FREE! Isn't that awesome, or isn't that awesome? ;Pp Perfect for gatherings indeed!!



Mmmmm... Mmmm.... Mmmmmm!!!!! Aren't your mouths watering just by looking at the picture? 
*heart-drop*


Besides those killer monsters, we also had two cakes, one from Mr Baker (الخباز) and another from Cake'n'Bake. I'm not a big fan of Mr. Baker's (since I've had enough of it each and every week for yeeeeeaaaars), so I was eager to try the Cake'n'nBake's for a change, (especially since it was decorated with the flag baring the symbols our beloved countries, God bless 'em ^_^). It was good. But I'm not a cake lover to begin with, so I cannot really judge.




Even though I didn't go out (as I wished), I still enjoyed the day. I was too busy snapping pictures and sharing my humble writings around. My previous post received great feedback, thanks to Allah, which highly encourages me to keep practicing and write more in Arabic. But the most AWESOME moment of the day definitely has to be the special surprise I received from my all-time favorite magazine, Bazaar! I was completely taken aback by their little bomb-drop! hee hee They featured my special national celebration post on The Bazaar Daily!!! ;D I was super ecstatic; I literally started screaming of joy!! So, again, thanks to the wonderful team of Bazaar, you guys ROCK!

And thanks to all of you my beloved silent readers, and those of you who share their thoughts with me either here or elsewhere; you help a great deal in making an aspiring writer step even faster on the ladder of her dreams! God bless you all!

So what are your plans for the today? Going out? At the chalet or desert (or Dubai)? Staying indoors watching TV coverage? Whatever your plans are, be safe and sound, and remember that the true celebration of love for our country lies in the true service for it through out the whole year and not just on its national days.


Peace & Love!

I'm sure lots of you have watched this amazing skydive video already, but have you read Khaleejesque's special article about the guy behind the jump? ;)



His name is Mohammad Al-Refaie and you can learn more about him and his love for skydiving on the special article on Khaleejesque: [click here]


That is just AWESOME! Wouldn't wanna try it for real, though! Ha!

Would you??

كل عام و أنت بخير يا وطن النهار




عاشت لنا الكويت .. الكويت
و عاشوا أهلها
و اللي يحب الكويت .. الكويت
يضحي لأجلها

***

أنا كويتي أنا
أنا قول و فعل
وعزومي قوية

***


ياحماة العرين
لقنوا المعتدين
درسنا باليمين
ضربة لن تلين

***

عيدي يا كويت يا أحلى بلد
أنا لج رديت بروح و جسد

***


وطني
وطن النهار
أنت النهار
يا وطني

***


تلك مجموعة بسيطة من الأغاني الوطنية التي تربيت عليها ، كلما تبادرت إلي مسمعي مقاطع منها (لاسيما "أنا كويتي أنا" و "وطن النهار") تختلج مشاعري و تتبعثر أحاسيسي معلنة مراسم إحتفال بتراقص ذكريات متناقضة ... فأجدني تارة أبتسم أو أضحك ، و تارة أتنهد أو تدمع عيني (و قد أبكي) ...

ف"عاشت لنا الكويت" كانت من الأغاني الأكثر ترديداً في صغري ، كذلك "أنا كويتي أنا" و "حماة العرين" اللتان تثيران فيَّ الحماس فأجدني ، في خيالي ، أقف كالمجندين أحيي العلم و قلبي يقفز فرحاً ، تماماً كما كنت أفعل في طفولتي ... (إلا أني كنت أقوم بالغناء و التحية فعلياً حينها) . أما "عيدي يا كويت" فدائماً تذكرني بالأعياد و بهجتها . 

لكن "وطن النهار" لها مكانة خاصة في قلبي ، فهي تتربع على عرش كل الأغاني الوطنية التي أحبها ، لوقعها المجلجل على نفسي ... فقد نحتت آثاراً أبدية ، اختلطت بمشاعر طفلة في حالة عدم استيعاب كلي ، ثم انتقلت إلى غور شجون قلب شابة مبعثرة روحها ... فكانت دائماً تنادي أعماق روحي سالبة تلك الدموع المختزلة التي عادة لا أحس بوجودها ...

قبل عدة أيام كنت في السيارة أستمع للمارينا أف أم ، أترقب برنامج "الديوانية" الذي عادة ما يسهم في رسم البسمة على محياي مشكلاً عامل نجاح في تسهيل عملية السياقة في ذلك الوقت العصيب من الظهيرة ، فتفاجأت بأغنيتي المفضلة تصدح ...  كالعادة ، امتزجت مشاعر الفرح و الألم و تراقصت في داخلي ...

لكن ، و لأول مرة ، كلمات الأغنية كان لها صدى جديد:

... ياللي انولد من جديد ... غصب على الآلام ، ترجع وطن من جديد

أحسست و كأن هذه الكلمات تحاكيني بالذات ... فإني أمر بمرحلة حساسة في حياتي الخاصة حالياً ، فكانت تلك الكلمات بمثابة قلب حنون يواسي و صوت عقل حكيم يناشد و يشد من ازري مذكراً بأن "مع العسر يسراً" ... فعلاً ، إن مع العسر دوماً يسراً ... فلا بد من أن تشرق الشمس بعد العاصفة و لا بد للظلام أن ينجلي و للضباب أن ينقشع . فمهما تكالبت علينا هموم الدنيا و تشابكت ، لابد أن نستذكر القوة الكامنة بداخلنا ، و لا نترك لشبح الخوف و القلق مجال ليترعرع في أنفسنا ، فلابد أن نتحلى بالإيمان دائماً و نستمر في المقاومة و الدفاع ، حتى "نولد من جديد" .


تماماً كما ولدت الكويت من جديد مرات عديدة ، فاليوم و غداً تستذكر بلادي يومين من أروع الأيام في تاريخها ، فبعد إحدى و خمسون سنة على إستقلالها و بعد إحدى و عشرون سنة من التحرير لا يجب أن أستسلم لألم بعض الذكريات الحزينة ، بل يجب علي أن أديم الابتسامة على محياي و أرفع رأسي عالياً ، فلو لا لطف العلي القدير لربما ما كان حالنا كما هو الآن ، ننعم بأمن و أمان قد نحسد عليه كثيراً ، فيجب علينا جميعاً أن نديم السجود لله شاكرين و نرفع أيادينا للكريم راجين منه أن يديم علينا نعمة الأمن و الاستقرار و أن يمن على جيراننا و إخواننا المسلمين بالمثل ، آمين ...

و كل عام وأنت بخير يا وطن النهار ، يا أرض المحبة و السلام ...



***

video

هذا مقطع بسييييط جداً من الاغنية أثناء استماعي إليها في السيارة ، عذراً لقصره الشديد فلم يتبادر لذهني تصويره إلا مع قرب نهايتها... أعجبتني مشاهدة الأعلام ترفرف و كأنها تستمع معي و تستمتع ...

***

كالعادة ، يتحفنا Google بابداع جديد :)





***



وطني الكويت سلمت للمجد
و على جبينك طالع السعد

Literature World Celebrates Charles Dickens 200th Birthday: My Personal Thoughts





Today marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of the most celebrated writers in the world, Charles Dickens. As an English Language and Literature student, I have the privilege to indulge in learning more about such authors whose works have surpassed generation upon generation only to become an essential part of any English literature student or fan's journey of learning and enlightenment.

Whenever I read such wonderful creations by authors such as Dickens, I cannot help but feel the "awes" and "wows!" escaping my thoughts. I guess, anyone who enjoys writing knows what I'm talking about. I often wonder if those authors knew the amount of impact their creations would have on the literary world while they were creating them; would they have produced them differently? What if the Brontë sisters knew how truly passionate readers can get over their beloved novels (I just adore Wuthering Heights), or if Dicken's Oliver Twist would be played in thousands of theaters around the world, or if Shakespeare knew he'd be the iconic symbol of the English literature?

I can only imagine!

I wonder if any of today's writers would be as symbolic as Shakespeare in the far future. I wonder if Arab writers would leave an infinite impact. I wonder if Kuwaitis would leave such a historic trail.

I wonder if I will ever leave this world with a timeless classic that would be taught to generations to come.

I wonder...


*****


So, it fascinates me when I see other countries proudly and continuously acknowledging and celebrating their writers, even if centuries go by since the day they were born! (Check out Dickens2012.org and be inspired!)


And as usual, Google celebrates with a special Dickens doodle! (Read more about this on Los Angeles Times)





Will Kuwait celebrate me 200 years from now? ;D

We will never know... 

(but if there's anyone from the future, they can answer me! ;P) 






*****



So, what's your favorite Charles Dickens novel? 


Share your thoughts! :)

I Finally Met the KHALEEJesque Team!



Last night I posted about KHALEEJesque's first print issue launch. Here are my thoughts about the experience! :)



Photo Credit: KHALEEJesque


I'm blessed to have my hands on the first print issue of KHALEEJesque! I was really excited to finally meet the wonderful people behind this lovely e-zine! I'm always on the look out for such interesting and enthusiastic magazines to read (and also hopefully be part of the their wonderful teams). So, when I learned that KHALEEJesque, one of top favorite e-zines were launching their first print issue, I was thrilled, and made sure I never miss it.




When I arrived at the launch installation located at the atrium at 360° mall), I took my time to carefully indulge in what I'm looking at! There were several gorgeous ladies which I gathered had to be part of the KHALEEJesque team (and they were!). I made sure I let one of them kindly help me with my meet-the-team discovery and give me my goody bag, which looked so beautiful! I was then delighted to meet Fouz Al-Sabah, creative director and co-founder of KHALEEJesque, whom I enjoyed chitchatting with and who was more than welcome to answer all my questions.


Ghadeer Al-Otaibi and Fouz Al-Sabah


There is a fun photo-booth for readers to take memorable photos with their beloved KHALEEJesque copies! I highly enjoyed the idea! I've always wished we'd have similar photo-booths in Kuwait! The company is called "BonkerBox" and they specialize in transforming an ordinary photo shoot to a crazy out of this world! I so would love to rent the box for our parties! You can too! Check their FB page for more details. 




The general feel was filled with proud accomplishment! The team showed such class and prestige the magazine shows, so I wasn't really mistaken, I WAS meeting the real team! ;P 



People gathering around! :)



*****



Alright! On to the goody bag! 




I really loved the colors and design of the bag. The black, white and red are always a great combination! Wished if there was a green too and we would've have the colors of the Khaleeji spirit, but I know that these are the colors of the magazine's logo ;)

Besides the copy of KHALEEJesque, here's what I found inside:



A beautiful 2012 planner, some chocolates, and a cookie. I really fell in love with the planner; it caught my attention instantly. It has some beautiful quotes spread around the months and even a poem in the first few pages! How cool is that? :D

Here's the surprise cookie I got. From the feel of the yellow bag, I felt like there was a cookie inside. I was half correct about my guesses and assumptions. There was a cookie alright, but I was kinda disappointed when I saw the orange-colored sugar coated cookie; I was expecting a chocolate chip cookie ;P I wonder if all the bags have this orange cookie. Don't think so, I'm sure there might be a mixture and it's my luck to have this orange one...  





Anyways! I can't wait to fully read the whole issue! Last night I flipped through most of it with a continuos smile on my face! I'm really proud of the whole KHALEEJesque team for this wonderful establishment! The first issue is specialized in everything culture-related; really is worth getting as it's timeless and will be a lovely addition to anyone's shelf ;)

*****


So, hurry up, and get your free copies, people! You still can pass by today at 360° mall; the team will be happy to see you!

And happy KHALEESesquing! ;P

Lost Cat at Mishref


Just spotted this over Twitter: Prof Kaeml AlSaleh tweeted:






He's in Mishref, block 4. 

For more information, kindly contact Prof. Kamel AlSaleh (click here)


*****

Personal thoughts:

It saddens me when animals get neglected, I really hope this kitty was NOT thrown out, and that he might just dropped this diwaniya a visit. I really hope he gets back home safely if indeed he's lost. 

If he wasn't, then I hope he finds a loving home soon!

Kuwaiti Flash Mob! (Continuously UPDATED)


So, how are you doing post-election day? ;)

Shocked? Surprised? Frustrated? Numb? Pessimistic?

Well, I'm still keeping it positive! :D

And I know I'm not the only one; Zain and Cinemagic are keeping it positive too!







AMAZING!

If your spirits weren't lifted; then you might not have any!

I never thought I'd watch a flash mob video that actually happened in Kuwait! We so need more of these!!
I got tears in my eyes! The patriotic songs used are my top faves! Especially "Ana Kuwaiti"! Oh my God, I used to sing this one repeatedly during the times of the liberation! :'D

3ad I was planning to go the Avenues today but I couldn't! Wish I made it, maybe I would've seen this!!! Flash mobs aren't supposed to be announced, so nobody would notify me! Hopefully one day I'll witness something like this!

Shout out to all those souls who keep spreading positivity around! You guys rock! Kuwait has faith in those who have faith in it!

NEVER lose hope!



Updates:

I shall be adding more videos as I discover them ;)


Reactions were hailing all over the place since the videos went viral! A simple search with the words "flash mob Kuwait" over Twitter would get you hundreds of tweets praising this new national celebration! Bloggosphere could not miss this too; here some links:



Check out The Avenues twitter page for a lovely set of pictures of the flash!


*Special Thanks to Bloggylife for sharing the first video!
