Going..Going.. Gone.


Well, I guess this was coming. I’ve finally decided to shut down this blog. It was fun while it lasted, but I don’t see myself committed to it. And there’s no point, really, when you’re not blogging on a regular basis.

Thank you to those of you who emailed me or left comments asking about my absence. I was deliberating whether to blog again, but I’ve lost my mojo and it’s not coming back anytime soon.

I don’t want this blog to stay suspended in the Internet space, and I don’t want to quit without saying goodbye.

If, after all this time, there’s anyone left reading this.. well, I guess I should say thank you! I’m still going to be around of course, reading blogs (I’m addicted) and commenting (sometimes).

Big HUUGE hugs and kisses,


PS. I’m going to leave the blog up for a while and then I’ll delete it.

The F-ing Weather!

This is absolutely hilarious! I urge you to visit this site: It’s a weather site, where you basically get a weather forecast and the temperature in your area. It’s not as fancy as most of the well-known weather sites, but it’s pretty cool!

When I first heard about it (thank you WendyB) I thought “Think of all the obscenities it would say about our weather over here?” Well, there’s no need to say, I got my obscenities all right!

Check it out:

F Weather

In the small print, it says “Do you have life insurance?” LOL.

I tried to write this post many times. I'd write the first sentence. Then hit delete. I'd write another sentence. Then I'd delete it again. I'm trying so hard to say what's on my mind and what's in my heart. But words fail me..

With tears in my eyes, thoughts on my mind and the utmost joy in my heart, I'd like to thank each and every single person who voted yesterday. It's because of you that we were able to change more than 40% of the parliament members. We made four women members of the parliament. Not one, not two, but four!

I would sincerely like to thank each and every one of you. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the women especially. We make up 60% of Kuwait's population. We can change this country. Literally. And yesterday we did.

Though you and I may be different, and though we might share different opinions, we still participated in one of Kuwait's most important events. We took matters into our own hands and we went and ticked the names we wanted on the ballots. We did not give up, we did not despair. Although Kuwait experienced the lowest turnout of voters ever to take part in the elections, many of us still went there and did their duty.

We can't sit and home and complain about a situation and then refuse to take action when action is needed. We, the people, hold the votes in our hand. We have, and always will have, the power to change things. And when change is due, change must come.

And finally, change has come. It might be small to begin with, but gradually, things will change for the better. We can't expect whatever needs to be mended, to be fixed right away. With time, and with a lot of hard work, we will get there.

I love my country. It's not perfect. It might never be. But it's my country. It's given me so much, and I'm so glad that I never ever forget that. And I hope that as long as I live, I will be able to give back to Kuwait what it has given me.

I love you, Kuwait. Always and forever.

Hi everyone! I've been such a bad blogger, I completely forgot about blogging. Actually it's not that I forgot to blog, it's more like I didn't have time to blog. I don't even have time to read blogs. And I LOVE reading blogs! I've been so busy with a million things: Helping out in the election campaigns (which is so hectic) and I've also been busy with some family stuff.

Anyway, I'm here to say a public service announcement. From me to you. It's for all the Kuwaitis out there who read this blog or who might have stumbled here. I urge you please to vote on Saturday! It's been a rough year for us Kuwaitis. The political scene has been a disgrace. It's going to take some real men and women to clean up the mess that most of the MP's left us with this past year. I am so disappointed in our parliament these past few years. Most of the members were there for their own good, or for some hidden agendas. And those who were good, were so few, that they couldn't stand a chance against the corrupt majority.

We have a chance to change the parliament. Please don't say that no one can change it. It's we who have the upper hand, because we get to choose who sets foot in the National Assembly. Never underestimate the power of your vote. Every vote counts.

I don't want to bore you with all the stuff that I keep saying to people over and over and over.. But I will say this: PLEASE VOTE ON SATURDAY. And please vote wisely. Don't vote because this person is related to you, or that person seems nice, or this person did you a favor, and that person seems religious. Vote because this person is putting Kuwait first and foremost on his agenda. And because that person is thinking about you, your children and your family before they pass any law.

This is our country we're talking about. This is our life! Please please PLEASE vote on Saturday. VOTE FOR CHANGE. If America did it, don't you think we can too?

Here's to getting our old Kuwait back!

I'll be back soon. I'm going to take a break after the elections to get back to my regular schedule. And hopefully, I'll get back to posting like the old days.

Note to Hasan.B: You're right I haven't been so politically active on my blog because I've been neglecting it for so long. But I'm still active in real life :)

My Girl Friend

Back when we were in school, one of my girl friends (not girlfriend) had her heart broken by a guy. No surprise there. BUT, then she decided to swear off guys and turn lesbian! What the hell?? Why??! Because of a stupid guy who said he likes you and then changed his mind? It’s not like dating a girl will guarantee you a heartbreak-free relationship!

As a matter of fact, I’d rather be asexual than homosexual. No offense to all you gays out there, but I can never ever be with a girl! I mean, girls are pretty, sweet, kind and nurturing. I should know, I am one after all! But man are they we unbelievably weird at times.

If I wanted to be with someone overanalyzing, overdramatic, and full of drama.. I’d date myself! Why would I want to go through double the PMS times, double the crying, and double the emotions!

I believe men and women were meant to be together for a reason. Men are simple (not simple-minded) and logical. We, on the other hand, are complicated and.. and.. complicated!

This is not to say that all guys are easy going. I knew a guy who was emotional, sensitive, and a think tank. He wanted to be with me. I wanted to RUN!

I mean, come on! I do like the opposite sex, but for God’s sake that person was the male version of ME!

This lady thinks that if there’s going to be one drama queen in the relationship, it’s gotta be her!

[Sorry if I’ve been blogging so randomly and not visiting your blogs more often than I usually do, but I’ve been busy job hunting. It sucks. Big time]

My Mistake Is Your Lesson

Do you believe in learning from other people’s mistakes? I know I do. My sister is a few years younger than me. I give her advice. A lot. Sometimes it might be too much (for her not for me). But I don’t think there such a thing as too much advice to dish out. There will never be enough advice floating around in the universe.

There are always lessons to be learned. My sister gets angry sometimes, and says that I’m negative, demeaning and controlling. But I’m only trying to help! I’ve always wished I had an older sister to tell me where the shortcuts are so I don’t have to take the long route. So I don’t slip on an icy path and fall.

I’ve been there and done that. I just want to spare her the trouble. A few years difference might not be much, but when she’s just past her teen years and I’m smack in the middle of my 20’s, that’s a lot of lessons learned, and a whole lotta wisdom gained.

Sure I want her to live her life and make her own choices. But there are some things that are just not worth doing. I’m saving her the energy (to go and do something less stupid I hope).

This lady believes that her mistakes can be your lessons learned. And vice versa, of course. How about you?
