From here and there

An appetite to blog, I don't know if such a thing exists? But life can be crazy, tonight I would like to read something instead of stacking books and staring at them, I still prefer magazines to them I could not get rid of some of the ones I have I guess I like collecting them :)

الجو مو طبيعي، اجازة هاليومين بالكويت ممتعة :> ، طلعة الضحى مو طبيعية، الناس يا مسافرين يا محكورين بدواماتهم او منخشين بالبيت ما يبون البرد و الكويت حلوة

UMA

أطلقت على دايسو محل الشيء اللي يبيع شيئ لزوم الشيئ اللي ما له شيئ، هذا الموقع اعلااااه مثل هالسالفه ،، فيه اشياء حلوة و عصرية و تونس بس فيه اشياء تقول ليش يعني؟ شنو فايدتها الحقيقية ! بس انها تونس



A list of some of the items I liked:














Cube wall clock :D
to visual tricks lovers!












A new definition for a rubber duck :D ,, Jackie came to mind instantly, although she moved to Couch Avenue, still the RubDuckie is mentally attached to her image in my mind ;p



Cube Alarm Clock ,,, Nibaq came to mind this time, he likes clocks! this one too is nice :D


This is a wonderful decorative piece!




I instantly thought of THING ,, the moving hand in Addams family! Pretty creepy...




Who can live without an olive spoon?



Now this one is FUN :D City Squirties Bath Toy

This was brought to you frooooom

UMA : Urban Materials + Accessories online
cool site check it out, although I doubt that I left much to be seen ;p

Hiro Nakamura





Hiro Nakamura will only sound familiar if you are into the series Heroes! A recent addiction of mine, Hiro along with Matt Parkman & Peter Petrelli are the cutest of them! there are a lot of other addicts to Heroes, world wide, there is even a Heroes WIKI !!! Also Heroes Revealed is a great site.

Regarding the background of the actor performing Hiro moodless said it first :}

Although I am liking the series & following it up but I prefer movies ,, they have a beginning & an ending in a few hours :D the story stretching is not always done well! even if it was as long as The Lord of The Rings trilogy still it ends in less than a day.... I wouldn't have to wait for the network, ratings and demand to stretch the series if they are earning well :> I am still in season 1 episode 13, lets see if I will stay interested for long.

Oh the reason for this post is that when he started looking for a samurai's sword, the samurai is real & he is called "Takezo Kensei", there was a peice of reality in the sword's story, check this link out, where the writer of that post thinks that Takenzo Kensei is "Miyamoto Musashi" who is well known among the Japanese samurai [the wiki link I inserted is not highly trusted!] how ever back to the Kirainet:

he suggests

"“Takezo” is an alternative reading of Musashi 武蔵, and “Kensei” is the highest rank a samurai can hold, only legendary samurais are considered “Kensei”. “Kensei” could be translated as “Heroe”."


Which adds credibility to the story by mixing history & fiction, that is also a good combination for a perfect lie, the best lie is the one that is half real, using real things/ facts/ people to insert them in a fictional story will make it more believable. Just like the girl with a pearl earrings :D although in the girl with a pearl earrings case, the painting is an inspiration for the novel.

Girl with a Pearl Earring




Originally, is it a novel or a painting?
Which came first?

It's originally a painting that had no much information about, no story no background on it nor on the painter, he is Dutch called Johannes Vermeer ,, I love wiki

Then in 1999 a novel was written, by the American Tracy Chevalier, who took the painting as an inspiration to write that novel about a young girl called "Griet" who had to work as a maid in the Artist house "Vermeer's" ,, afterwards he paints her wearing his wife's pearl earring which caused her to be fired, then married a man who she was in love with "Pieter",,,, the rest can be seen in the movie! Produced in 2003

Three things made me write this post:

1- I liked the painting
2- If the reader, movie watcher did not know that the novel is built on the painting but does not relate to its real story "which is unknown, and there might not be one! it could be a simple portrait noting attached to it" ,, then that lack of knowledge could build a base for who might say the novel tells the story of the painting.
3- I do not like the fact that most artists, are not well appreciated in their life as much as they are in their death.

Colbie Caillat - Bubbly

Can't get it out of my mind :}

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PWfB4lurT4

a very cute song, hear it the house, on the way to work, at work ;p

off the mood ,, I do enjoy this one too!

نمر بن عدوان و الجانب الرقيق من الرجل

المقالة متأخره لكنها افكار تلازمني ،، و اخرجها للسطح بريد الكتروني قمت بحذفه بعد حملة تنظيف شاملة قمت بشنها على صندوق بريدي الاكتروني ككل

نمر بن عدوان شخصية عربية قديمة "بدوية" يلتصق بها اساس الجملة التي يقولها بعض الناس، اجمالا البدو "هذا بلا ابوك يا عقاب" و المقصود بها الاشارة الى خصلة تميز شخص ما و ارجاع محبة هذا الشخص الى تلك الخصله ، اي ان هذه الخصله هي سبب الحب بمن قيلت عنه

المثير للاهتمام بان البريد الالكتروني الذي حركني لكتابة هذه المقالة قد وصلني من رجل ،، على الرغم من افتتان النساء بشخصية الاعرابي الذي يتخطى الاعراف المتداوله و يظهر عاطفته لزوجته التي يحب الى الناس اجمعين و ان يمتد هذا الحب الى ما بعد وفاتها، الا ان لشخصية نمر بن عدوان صدى لدى الذكور على حد سواء و اعجبوا به، مما يغاير النظرة بأن الرجال عموما لا يحبون الرجل العاطفي

اثبتت هذه الشخصية بان الرجولة و اظهار العاطفة لا يرتبطان ببعظهما كالماء و النار و ان احدهما لا يخمد الآخر، بالعكس يمكن لرجل ان يعبر عن عاطفته و ان
هذا الشيء ليس به اي انتقاص للرجولة

و افتتان بعض الرجال به بنظري هو فأل خير :) فالتعبير عن العاطفة لم يعد حكرا على النساء عموما، هذا لا يعني انكار عاطفة الرجل ولكني اتكلم بالعموم! ذلك لان الرجل عموما يتحكم بعاطفته اكثر من المرأة "بشكل عااااام و ليس خاص" و لعل نمر بن عدوان سيكون رمز لتجديد العاطفة بين الازواج و التعبير عنها بحرية اكثر و بلا خجل و بكل احترام؟! الشيء الذي يندر وجوده و في بعض الاحيان ان وجد تسمع الاصوات التي تقول:

"ليييييييييييييييييييش تبي اتفطن الناس علينا و يحسدونا @@ لا ويه لا تقول لاحد"

و في بعض الاحيان باصوات اكثر خشونة

"خرووووووووووووووووف"

صحيح ان للأشعار الغزلية نصيب الاسد مما يقولة الشعراء على مر العصور و بالاخص الذكور منهم، و لكن التغزل بالزوجه لم يكن من غالبية هذه الاشعار ،، حسب وجهة نظري ،، ولا املك اي شيئ ضد هذه الكتابات فللشاعر حرية ما يكتب به،،

و نعود الى نمر ،، فإن كان العامل المحفز هو نمر بن عدوان او غيره! شخصياً يسعدني وجوده و انتشاره،، لان التعبير عن المشاعر لمن نحب بوقت وجودهم في هذه الحياة ظروري فكلنا زائرون لهذه الحياة و سنتركها بوقت ما ،، فلنخلف ورائنا ما يسعدنا و يسعد من نحب

A quick dish!

Yesterday:

When I got home, lunch was not appealing, looked into the fridge found some useful things [mushrooms - coriander - Parmesan] and did the following:



Took out some garlic & coriander



Butter in the pan



MUSHROOMS


Crushed garlic with coriander, added some salt when squashing them, it makes it easy to squash them :D this is my mother's tip! Then added some pepper "I prefer freshly crushed" and some dried rosemary



Added the mushrooms to the mix



Did not have time to cover the pan & wait for the mushrooms to sweat so i added a little bit of water ;p then after a minute or two added some cream over



A few minutes to simmer, the mushrooms with the fake white sauce mixed along well :D finally added some Parmesan cheese just before serving



Annnnnd :D I was DONE, it was ready to be eaten



This sauce with the mushrooms fits a pasta or even with some grilled chicken or steak ,, am a white sauce + mushroom + chicken lover :D thats why I made up this dish, although am not a garlic lover but with the white sauce it works well!

Mistakes:

It was a bit salty, I forgot that I added salt to the garlic & coriander mix :/ but I ateeee it along with my sister & bro,,, and they are FINE :D el7mdillah

a lot of cream and water added, a lot of sauce was produced :D which made it fit a pasta more than to be eaten alone ;p

I ate it with some brown toast. All in all it was a good quick Q80-ChillGirl'ie meal :D "that did not sound nice! too long"

Sharq




I went to see the Sharq movie premier here in Kuwait tonight @ 8 pm......


The Cancellation:

A few hours before the show my sister & friend could not attend the premier with me but I went there :D alone and it was not easy for a shy person like me, yet I had fun.

The Family mixup:

When I stood for a while near the gate, a family stood in front of me, yes not beside me but in front of me LOL it was hillarious how people looked at me as they came to greet them and wondering who was I ??!!

The Early Bird:

I came there early! too early, 45 minutes before the show, and we did not get in till after 8:05, Arabic timing, Although I liked the fact that I came early still the wait is not for me! I could not stand still for more than a minute! I went here & there, up & down, I can not handle waiting well, if only I took that book with me at least I have read a few pages!

The Salfa:

مو قادره انسى سالفة اثنين يهبلون تخاتيخ من عمر العشر سنين او بداية التعشات ،، يقول للي معاه ايييطقها بالكتاب و قالها انا كنت بطق الذبانه او طق المدرسه او مادري شصار المهم شكله و انفعالاته تشوق :> و اللي يشوق اكثر انفعال اللي معاه لوول حدهم مختبين على السالفة

و هم كان شكل الصبيان اللي لابسين دشاديش يونس،، انتشروا بالساحة اللي جبال السينما ذكروني ابيت عمي العود بالعيد ايام اول ،، لما كانت الدشداشة اللبس الرسمي للصغار

The Faces:

Saw a few familiar faces :D they made me smile :D although some of them don't know me but they made it easy! with the net's aid that is.

The Organizing:

Was good, except for the delay in the playing time, I had a busy day so every minute counts! especially that was dead tired!

The movie, My review:

All in all I liked it, its not something extraordinary but very worth producing, I have always felt that there is this poor one Kuwaiti movie that counted as a try in the cinema world, Bas Ya Bahar, of course EXzombie's latest article proved me wrong & informed me with a lot of facts regarding the kuwaiti cinema and movie industry, an article worth reading it is a documentation of a part of the Kuwaiti culture. Still it is young, and done by amateurs "majority" but its there.

Sharg is a movie about a group of kids who want a new football after theirs being ruined! so the search for a new ball begins, in an other part of Kuwait far away from where they live, my most enjoyable part is the scenes in the middle of the movie where they flash back around the places they went to in Kuwait in their search for Sharg!

I enjoyed the movie a lot, the editing was very nice, script and enjoyed the movie as a whole, it was funny, I would give it 4/5. If you did not see it, or hasty to go & see it, DO NOT !! this is so worth it and its only ALMOST 22 minutes long :)

The Ogre:

She did not look anything like an Ogre but I wanted to use this discribtion in particular to describe her impoliteness! let aside the laughs from here & there, the comments for no obvious reason! the repeating of lines! she kept doing, when a scene of poor/ simple houses came, which I assume is in the "Taima" Area in Al-Jahra district, known as "Al-Sha3beyat" since the movie started from Al-jahra, Al-Sh3beyat are one store houses built originally by the government to house Kuwaitis until their real/ bigger houses are built but this project failed as "Al-Sawaber" one did! they are located in two areas of Kuwait: Al-Sulaibiyah & Al-Jahra.

Nevertheless some have not seen them before or took a closer look at them, I did, it was not a pleasant scene and I do not wish for them to exist in Kuwait I wish that every one has a nice house to fit them, what if they don't?

But to say: umbeeeih hathe El-Jahra chetheee !!

It's a shame, a woman with her age "mid - late 20s" does not know how Al-Jahra looks like, or heard or seen how it looks like? even if you have never been there, have you not known any one living there? haven't you heard about their houses? Personaly I do not live there but I know a lot who do, and you my miss :) should take a trip over there just to sea how things are.

I liked a guy's comment who was close by when he said "this is how Al-Sh3beyat in Al-Jahra looks like" to him I say thank you, to her I say, spare us your comments, true its not a library but to me watching a movie is the same as reading in a library :)

Tomorrow is the last day! do not miss it, book now :D

My day ended with a bag & a brochure of the movie beside me on the ride back home,,,,

The Son of man & the Thomas Crown affair!

The other day I watched a movie I REALLY like, the Thomas Crown Affair, a wonderful movie where thrill, wit, art, love is there :) a perfect combination to keep me hooked. Although its a 1999 production but still one of the movies I still like to see.

In that movie the painting below is displayed, since 1999 I wanted to dig up information about it, enough to fill all the blanks I have regarding this painting but never got to it until last week when I saw the movie again,,,, annnd here goes nothing !!!


picture from



++ Son Of Man from a Wiki point of view:

"The phrase son of man is a primarily Semitic idiom that originated in Ancient Mesopotamia, used to denote humanity or self. The phrase is also used in Judaism and Christianity."


++ However the Wiki says more about the painting above
:

"The Son of Man (French: Le fils de l'homme) is a 1964 painting by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte."




This is for the information related to the painting and its name, now to my butter!

The artist is classifies as a surreal one, surreal in my tiny presepective is un-real, meaning it is real because the artist could use real thing/ places/ objects/ creatures! but in an unreal way, like the master Dali :) "which will have his own post if not posts"

So pretty much the word explains that kind of art, and I also like to explain it as :
painting a dream

now if you see the picture above in a large view "click it" you will notice that his eyes are not totally hidden behind the apple, still one appears more than the other, the one exposed more, the right one for us, corresponds with a shaded hand! mean while the other eye, the left eye corresponds with the not so shaded hand :D

3rd button un-buttoned

ears not symmetrical

those observations I had when I first saw it, the artist could have done them deliberately or not, but the only one I think might be not deliberate is the ear one.

I think it symbolizes the Adam and apple temptation that the son of man still faces till date! and will ever do. If life was the apple I would say it makes a lot of sense to me :) although we can see through the apple, it still hides the big picture from us!

From here and there

فوضة ولا موضة ،، فوضى مو فوضة !! ولا بس علشان تمشي مع كلمة موضة؟ بغض النظر عن الهدف الدرامي من العنوان و من الرغبة في جذب الجمهور لمشاهدة البرنامج ،، لكن لهذا العنوان خطورة و بعد لغويين ،، من اكثر الاحرف التي ينالها اللغط اللغوي باللهجة الكويتية حرفي الضاد و الظاد و اعترف انا اعاني من هذه المشكلة حيث يبدو لي كل ما يشابه الضاد هو ظاد! و القراءة هي المنفذ الوحيد المساند للخروج من هذه العلة ،،
فالقناة بذلك تكون على غرار من يكتب "آنه" بقصد ان يقول أنا باللهجة الكويتية ،، متناسيا بان الكلمة تبقى أنا و أنه على المدى البعيد قد يتأثر الناس و يتساهل كتابة آنه بدلا من أنا و قد نصل الى مرحلة الجدال حول ايهما الاصح؟

فكيف اطلب من امة اقراء التي لا تقراء ان تقراء و تفرق بين الضاد و الظاد،، و اعميها ببرامج تتوجه لجمهورشاب به نسبة لا يستهان بها من جاهلي متى تستخدم الضاد و متى تستخدم الظاد ،، لست بصدد ان اعلق على محتوى البرنامج فهو لا يهمني الان ،، ما يهمني هو تعديل المسمى ليكون صحيح لغوياً من قبل اداة اعلامية لا يستهان بها ،، فالاعلام المرئي اقوى من اي وقت مضى ،، و أعتقد بان اللفض يكفي ولا يجب ان تتخذ الكلمات نفس الاحرف و ان يتم تغيير كلمة لمجرد ان يكون شكل اسم البرنامج جذاب :) النطق يكفي و يوفق و الدعاية للبرنامج كلها نطق

و خلال البحث عن رابط للبرنامج او للمحطة لقيت هالموضوع عند فرانكوم ،، قديم من بداية ال 2006 بس شدتني الردود!!؟

Wondering weather I should publish a story online or keep it in the notepad that I store it in? The mental debate is the copy rights in the first place & in the second is harsh judgment since am not really that perfect in English but for some reason feel the urge to write in that language....

الجو مو طبيعي هاليومين! بالذات الصبح بالدرب للدوام شي مو طبيعي ،، نفسي تنفتح للدوام و ودي امشى على راحتي و ما ادوس و مستانسه اني ما احتاج التكييف مع اني من اكثر الناس اللي ما يتحملون اقل ارتفاع بدرجة الحرارة ،، جو يستحق الاستمتاع به لانه بالكويت لا يطيل المكوث

Stressed, is the best word to describe the current situation of the work load combined with crappy people around you, in every work place there is the good & the bad, be smart and become neither! This should reduce the stress a bit :D

Dubai One ,, tonight 12 am




Dubai One TV will show the movie "Vicent & theo" which will not be a full biography about the artist however its a movie I must see, Van Gogh is not an artist I knew about for long ,, about 7 years ago my interest in art & artists grew he came into the picture 2-3 years ago, and the key to me loving his work was "Starry Night" an amazing painting that made me admire him & look up information about the Artist & had lead me in late 2006 early 2007 not sure when! to buy a diary dedicated to him & his work that I carry with me all day long, along with an other diary for Dali which I will take a whole other post to write about, he is too one of my top listed artists.


This video is for a song done by Don McLean who wrote & sang it as a tribute to the Dutch Artist Vincent Van Gogh.. One day I hope to visit his museum : }



Now in that slide show a lot of his paintings are there and what I like about Van Gogh's work, his simplicity & you can see clearly in most of his work that he does not reflect a perfectly well painted image of life, he does not get the lines really exact & fine in drawing different thing like flowers, houses, people's faces, they are not symmetrical as most art work that generally people like, because of that I like his work & feel that its very true & close to the heart. His work's imperfection is very natural & the key to my admiration :}

The sad thing is that he had a sad life ,, and his art was not well appreciated in his life but after his death. It is sad that people do not realize that time does not go backwards, if you find something you like in life appreciate it the moment you see it, not after its gone!

Links that I will go through "meaning not just shuffle but read all the contents in all pages" when I have enough time & will talk about the Artist more:

1- Van Gogh Gallery
2- the Wiki page, Vincent Van Gogh
3- An other Van Gogh Gallery except this one is "endorsed by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam"
4- A page for Van Gogh in web museum,, which is fromibiblio.org logothe public's library and digital archive. A site I truly enjoyed.
5- Artchive dot com has a page for Van Gogh with some nice resources ,, cool site didn't go through it all but is worth reading it all up if you are interested in art.
6- The Vincent Van Gogh Museum, the most important link of all, his work's home, not all but the biggest collection of it is there.


All of that information about a single artist is just amazing! and if it wasn't for the INTERNET I wouldn't have known so much!! I love the internet :D & books...

From here and there

Woke up misunderstood, not a nice feeling.


Today, I will skip the Arabic line.


Allergy hit home, for some reason I thought that I wouldn't be allergic to the weather,,, ever.


For some reason people think that swearing is ok in English but not in Arabic, its not any less of a bad language you just hear it more often in the media as an expression of anger, so I advice the people who use swearing in English as an escape from Arabic, try translating it before you take it out of your mouth.


I'm getting bored of facebook, What made it fun is all the applications in it, the movie one (flixter?) and the Tetris game are my favorite.

Pat & Stanley

It all started late 2004 when some one sent me this video



At the time I did not know where to start my search & for some reason got busy & didn't do it, today while I was searching something in youtube I found a video for the cute Hippo & Dog with their names! Finally I got a piece of the thread :D




For some reason I did not think they were French! Through the search I found out that who made the video is a French guy named Pierre Coffin, This is his new site, Click on movies from the side bar on the left & you will be up for a lot of fun, this guy is TALENTED mashallah, great work, funny & I didn't think he was French, due to the latest 3D Animated productions being from the USA & the movie industry is huge there! However Pierre Coffin flipped the table & proved him self "in my opinion" as a great artist! I don't know more information about him but he made me laugh for more than a year on the cute Hippo & Dog ,, Pat & Stanely now :D

Paula Lima .. Só tinha de ser com você

It all started at the beauty saloon this Saturday, when I heard an amazing ring tone in a woman's mobile. I'm usually a very shy person but I liked the song so much that I asked her about it & I dared to ask her to send it to me if she can, which is not a very hard thing to do but for me I had to be brave :}

She had no idea about the song, its a new mobile I just used it "she said" The persistent me asked to have the name of the song & I did get it from her, she was so sweet to come to me and let me see the name of the song. There the search began for the song entitled com você which literally means "with you" in Portuguese, I immediately found the video in youtube, link in the title of this post, the singer is Paula Lima a Brazilian. Her voice is amazing, the genre of the music is very close to me as I am a chillout/ Lounge lover too. Still I did not get the mp3 file and might consider to get her CDs somehow at a point of time! When am a little free.

Janet Monheit, an American artist who sang the same song too, her voice/ performance is nice too but did not capture me like Paula Lima's.

On the other hand, I am looking up photoshop tutorials at the moment in youtube, youtube is becoming a daily visited site along with google & wikipedia.

The trip to the MAZE

I'm not referring to the blogger Maze :D but to a building!

It all started when I acted smart & thought that my memory "that mainly consists of short term memory, long term memory doesn't exist in my brain" can help me through the place, I was able to figure out my way through the parking that I visited once more than a year ago, I did! then came the super hero me that wanted to explore a NEW entrance! saw a few employees walk in the direction to wards the "main entrance" sigh I recall seeing a few minutes back & went straight forward not making at least some distance between me & them to see where is the entrance exactly!! I ended up very close from getting into a wall, then when I looked back there was a man that looked at me with a smile & turned right & disappeared! "to him I say المعياب عند الباب", unfortunately I skipped the main entrance that was on my right a few feet before! I said to my self "yes the door was in too deep to be seen",,, it was! its like a mini hall then the door.

Any how, went inside like I was super woman walking confidently through the maze that had hallways over looking the hallway that I was looking at while walking in the hallway. Reached the lobby with my weak memory, then asked the security guy who was busy reading:

me: Excuse me I'm looking for this & that department.
him: "with a hmmmm look" قسم إيه
me: This & that.
him: " with a hmmmmm'er look" بتاع ايه
me: .............."I was speechless for a moment",, its the This & that department!
him: اعتقد القسم حيبأه بالدور ال3
me: thank you

اول ما صعدت ولا وحده اعرفها معرفة سطحية ،، البيبان بهالمبنى اتدزهم ليش لما شفت هالادمية و المسكينة ذكرتني و بتسلم علي سحبت الباب ماااااااااادري علشان اهي تكمل مشي و انا انحرج بكفخة الباب اللي مالها داعي بالذات اني كنت حيل مشتطه و انا اصك الباب على روحي،، شلون بناديها و اسلم و انا اصلا مو ميانه ،، طاف الموقف ومشيت وصلت لي السكرتيرة علشان اكتشف ان مكتب فلان قبل مكتبها بمكتبين و ان اللي صار لي الموقف العبيط معاها عنده :> قلت خيره بالمره اسلم عليها ،، و لفشلتي اكتشفت اني خربت عليها سؤالها او انه خلص بسرعه و فعلا خذت الجواب ولا انها انحرجت مني و خلت لي المكان على الرغم من اني عرضت اني انطرهم يخلصون موضوعهم ،، ليش ما نطرت برا المكتب لين تخلص مادري ،، كنت حيل قافله اليوم ،، بس ياحليله فلان قالي بالعكس انا ناطرج لانه عندج موعد اهي دشت تاخذ كلمه و راحت ،، مادري استحيت :>

و بعد المشاورات و المحاورات رجعت بخفي حنين تقريبا ،، و اكبر حسنه بالموضوع انه "انت يا فلان" شجعني على اني امشي على الفكره اللي ببالي اللي فيه مقاومه قوية لردعها لانها على زعم احدهم بتفتح علينا بيبان مسكره


From here & there

Thinking of the shift to wordpress ,, not sure yet ,, I kinda get attached to my things/ places I live in a lot.

تبداء حياة الانسان بدموع و صراخ، و تنتهي بدموع و صراخ، منه و من ثم ممن حوله ،، الفرق بين الولادة و الموت هو الوقت ،، بنفس اليوم وصل حفيد و غادر حفيد آخر ،، الله يرحم و يبارك

Organizing my books FINALLY, still going through magazines to clear some of them out, the biggest challenge is how to get rid of all the Vogue issues I have, I love them so much, starting from late 2004! and yes I do buy issues for the same month but for different countries :D I reached a truce with my Vogue obsession is that I would tear out the highlights of each issue I have & only keep the really really special ones! With In Style it is not as hard, although In Style is great with their mix & match pages where they give you great ideas for the every day wardrobe. Alef is a no way to be thrown kind of magazine, although the content needs more! still what they offer in it is unique.

باولا ليما - جين مونهيت ،، قريبا بهذر عنهم ،، بس على ما اخلص بحثي

كنت كاتبه فقرة بتكلم فيها عن الاضافات الصامتة بس حسيت ان الموضوع ماله اهمية :> فاااااا قررت اني اشيلها

Fracture, did not disappoint me, Antony Hopkins is GREAT in the quiet but genius type of character, I loved how he played things around, the grand court scene where he surprised them all! was my favorite, I do enjoy movies that make me think and make me smirk. One more note about this move is that Ryan Gosling's performance, he was excelent I recall him as Noah in The Notebook, however in Fracture I liked how he really pulled of the ego-filled young ambitious man that took a slap and learned that ego can take you from the high tops to down below.

Ocean's Thirteen is a big disappointment! Although making a hotel appear out of no where "replacing PH in Las Vegas Blv." was impressive ,, in IMDB a lot of interesting notes/goofs! :D

الترشيد ،، طاعة

الترشيد طاعة ،،،


لما تقولي ،، من حبنا لها نوفر لها ،، و تعلل هالشعار بنقص بمصادر الطاقة و انت تملك اكبر مخزون للنفط بالعالم و اعلى عائدات لاغلى و اهم انواع الطاقة الكربونية بالعالم و تملك الدولة التي تسيل الخيرات على الدول الاخرى و بكل صراحة تهدد بالمؤشرات الاستهلاكية بانه سيتم قطع الطاقة عنا نحن مواطني هذه الدولة الجميلة ،، اسمح لي بس صعب استوعبك و افهمك

لمّا هل رمضان صار الترشيد طاعة! انتقلنا من الترهيب الى الترغيب بس بلمسات دينية! و برمضان تم اخذ هذا المنحنى "الديني" بالتوجه الحاث على الترشيد ،، عجبي!؟

فهل تعتقد يا صاحب الشأن كائنا من تكون ،، لو بدءت الحملة بنصحنا بالترشيد ببساطة لانه "طاعة" و لانه تصرف "صحيح" بكل المفاهيم و التوجهات لن نفهمك!؟ ،، فالتبذير مرفوض دينينا و اخلاقيا هل تعتقد باننا لن نستجيب لك ؟ اضعف الايمااااان و اقل ما سيحدث ان الوعي سيزيد و ينتشر

صعب ان لا اتخيل بانه تم استغلال الدين ،، صعب ان لا اتخيل هذه الحملة التي تعتبر الحل الامثل لمشكلة دولتنا من حيث توفير الطاقة
و نحن من اغنى الدول بانه لا دخل للسرقات بها

بعيدا عن خيالي و عودة لزبدة الموضوع ،، الحمله كل مالها تزيد ملاقته ،، على الاقل خل نواكب المنطق ثم العصر و التقدم من ناحية النصح و الارشاد الوطني بطرق و شعارات اكثر وطنية و عملية و غير متقلبة حسب المناسبات الدينية او الدنيوية

Here I mark the end of a hectic day

Things not achieved due to lack of time:

1- Dinner pickup, BLESS home delivery
2- Hallmark to get a big biiiiiig card for our colleague who will leave us :(

Things to be done tomorrow:

1- Early morning ,, pick up baked goods :D

And yes Raju is highly missed, today I realized how crucial he is, tomorrow he will be back from his home town. Yes all of them are busy bees, one of them took two tasks off my back! thank you :D

I hate it when my sleep mode gets turned off, I have this odd biological system that wants me to sleep at a certain point of time, if I fail to reply its demand at that exact time, somehow it does not let me sleep! I can not get a hold of my "sleepiness" again...

And for some reason I seem to have an appetite to write!

مقتطفات من اسبوعي الماضي



The works around the area behind the Church in Kuwait city & very close to HSBC bank surprised me when I got to that area to pick up a salad I craved from Casper & Gambini's "I haven't been out a lot lately thats why the surprise"

Slimline Chicken Salad ::
tender chicken breast, crisp iceberg lettuce, tomato wedges & light mozzarella, shredded carrots, croutons, corn & our lemon mayo dressing



After a hustle to find a parking, began the delivery hustle, then I needed a lot of waving & honking on the horn until the gentle delivery guy found me, just before the minute I was about to jump out of the car & whistle to him ,,, or turn on a loud ring tone in my mobile since I don't know how to whistle! hmm 27 & till now ما اعرف اصفر!!

--++



بالليل بعد يوم طويل ،، مريت اخذ حبيبتي ،، سيارتي! مؤخرا اكتشفت اني احبها حيل ،، غير اني اسولف مع سيارتي بس بعد ما اتطيح الميانة طبعا! مو من اول شي اسولف معاها! لازم اعرف مايتها و طبيعتها و هم اهي اتعرف علي و اتطمن لي ،، المهم اني بديت احبها و اوله عليها

و بالاستقبال كانت الحجية! اللي عيونها تبرق بهالصورة و عاد وين عيونها عليكم الشغل دوروهم ،، قطوة دواعيسية اصيلة متربية بدواعيس الجراجات بالشويخ ،، شعرها معففففس، مصعوية، قلقه، مالها خلق و ضعيييييفة يعني صج صج تكسر الخااطر ،، بس فجأة حسيتها ناقده علي انا و اخوي و احنا نصورها ،، كانت نظرتها غريبة حسستني اني كائن فضائي و صورنا كلها فاشله بمعنى الكلمة لاني عن نفسي كنت اظحك و ما ثبتت عدل و بعدين اهي اخترعت من شافت كائن بشري يقرب منها ،، و المشكله اخوي يقولي لاتخرعينها

قلت وعليا صاج حرام ،، اي حرام اخرعها

لاااا لا تخرعينها على شان لا اتشمخ لج السيارة و اهي تنزل

و خلص يومي

A week & a day

8 days,,, is the period I was away from my blog, except for publishing comments, I have been totally away from the blog-o-sphere. The enormous work load will fade away with the beginning of tomorrow, which is the first Sunday in the new work week in Kuwait, with the decree that took effect from the 1st of September, 2007 our Saturday is counted as a day off from now on, instead of having Sat-Wed we will live with Sun-Thurs. Its not the poor English that made me write this way, its my mental distraction. Bare with me.

A commenter that moves around by the nickname "Anonymous Coward" that comments rarely but comments in a very wonderful way, this totally Anonymous person comments in an excellent way. He "as I assume, but he could be a she! never the less I will stick to my assumption & refer to him as a he" comments when he really does have something to say or add, the latest comment I read for him was in K.the.Kuwaiti's blog. He writes true thoughts, he does not comment for the sake of saying he is here nor for making the topic writer happy by his nice comment. This commenter in particular stayed in my mind & since I thought about him & the common ground we see his thoughts in is the blog-o-sphere, I wrote this paragraph to say, I appreciate you and do not like to say the other part of your nickname ,,, so to you Anonymous I say you are noticed & do make a difference with your comments.

Moving down in as the week days pass & I undergo the growing pressure at work that I try to manage, I realize that the work load is killing my ideas, keeping them captivated in my mind and the blue file where I keep all my ideas. I am only requested to finish up my work, with the load that I'm handling there is barely enough time to scratch my head, let aside improve work. Along with the rising pressure, the idea of this work place not being proper arose, in a place where I can not develope any procedure I find my self very lost & alone. A spot of light shed on me when a woman offered a place under her management for me to work in, she will be the last door I will knock in this place, if what I find behind it is not different, I will not waste my time there. The work depression hit me very soon! to cut the story short المحسوبية is the reason behind that.

Then the day that her image broke came "this is a different woman than the 1 I was talking about a few lines up", she was like a mentor to me, with her long experience she gained my respect. To find out that there is more under the table between her & some outsiders, was depressing, I was sad to discover that ugly fact. Although I thought that after all of this time & the many people I met with masks on their faces, I thought that I would be immune to such things, apparently I'm not & never will be.

He is taking things up a notch, he wants war, he will get it,,,,,, A man that thought that I would bend the rules just because he said so!




Meet the jelly fish we made in Waterlemon - Kuwait - Marina Mall. They don't only have these small water filled mattresses they put under the plates, now they also have a table FILLED with colored water for meeeee to play with :D now its not only their CHOCOLATE FONDANT, THE TABLE MATRESS, ITS ALSO THE TAAAAAAAABLES that will keep me going there. I love this place.

Propaganda

I have always hated politics & did not like to get into it at all, when I decided to do so recently, I based my opinion on a statement, one that came from a Journalist. After a while an other statement from the father of an other Journalist shattered all the facts "or claimed to be facts" in the first statement.

A journalist holds only his honesty as a shield, when its lost, his integrity is lost too. Until we get more facts on the table,,,,, all the stated above stands firmly as my evaluation of the Propaganda I went through.

Facts will be my main motivation to act from now on, with all do respect to what any one might claim, facts are nice to deal with.

Ironically I'm at work facing a vicious fight, because I took an action that I based on demanding facts and not claims! to make some paper pass by :)

I love Kuwait

Therefore I will base my actions on facts not claims!.... From now on.

P.S: I hid all the posts related to the recent events, kept only the last one, the one based on facts & official statements.

P.S (2): To louis, hope my post makes more sense now ;p

From here & there


FINALLY the weekend is here, this one to me was anticipated the most! not because I have something interesting, but because I will finally get some sleep

مع احترامي للي اقصدهم بكلامي، بس بالايام اللي فاتت و حماسي تجاه مسألة كرامة الكويتي واللوية و المواضيع اللي كنت اكتبها من خلال يومي المعفوس،، شفت شي ودي اعلق عليه،، للي يكرر تعليقه بكل مدونه نففففسه بالظبط و التعليق لا يملك خصوصية تتعلق بالموضوع المكتوب بالمدونة، صحيح كلنا تكلمنا عن موضوع جاسم و بشار بس لكل منا محوره الخاص ومنظورة الشخصي للموضوع، فا التعليق لمجرد التعليق ما منه فايده بنظري، التعليق اللي يضيف على الموضوع و صاحب الموضوع او على الاقل يحسس صاحب الموضوع انك يا اللي معلق عنده مكلف خاطرك و كتبت حرفين تعبر فيهم عن نفسك ابرك من نسخ التعليق و نشره يمين و يسار،، شنو الفايده؟ زيادة الحماس؟ الكل كان جدا متحمس للموضوع و كلنا منفعلين "اقصد اللي مهتمين بالموضوع طبعا" فااااااااااا رأيي الشخصي بالموضوع ،، يا انك تقول كلمه سنعه ولا لاتقول شي،، هذا انا و رأيي ،، لان مادري ليش كل ما شفت حاله مشابهه للي وصفته اتذكر المظاهرات العربية و الشعارات الرنانه اللي على غير سنع ،، نفس لما كنت مؤخرا بعرس و من قبل فرقة فلسطينية سمعت اغنية فلكلورية عن انهم بيقتلون اليهود و يحررون دولتهم ،، كل هذا و اهم يغنون و يرقصون باحد فنادق الكويت ،، الحماس حلو و التعبير عن النفس احلى بس الواقعية و المنطقية هم حلوين


Next weekend will be 3 days :D
a good chance to escape ,, or just relax


جريمة التلاعب بمشاعر الغير كبيرة ،، و شلون اذا كان الملعوب بإحساسه شخص يعز علي؟ و الموقف البايخ اللي انحطيت فيه اني ادري انها جذابه و انه مصدقها لانه طيب، بلحظة إنفعاله ما قدرت اقوله الصج، لاني بالبداية تأثرت حالي من حاله ،، بس لما حسيت ان الموضوع مو طبيعي و ان جذبتها جايده بديت اجيك و ادقق بالموضوع لما اكتشفت انها جذابه ،، ماقدرت اقول بنفس الوقت ،، حسيت بالذنب لاني ماقلت له بس ما كنت اقدر اقوله و اهو بقمة تأثره ،، لان التفاصيل اللي انا اهتم و ادقق فيها حيل بوقتها كانت تعني له اني مومهتمه لا فيه ولا بالموضوع المطروح،، مع ان العكس صحيح ،، لاني مهتمه انا دققت هالكثر



I'm so into Hello Kitty lately, more than the usual I think its the effect of seeing all the SANRIO shops in the US?
Another thought, is why are they so into blackberry over there? every one has one, and most of the blackberry users have other "simpler" mobiles along!

كنت اسمي البلاك بيري هناك "العنبة السودا" -ادري غلط بس هذا اللي اسعفتني فيه سرعة بديهتي- علشان اقدر احش انا و اخوي بظاهرة كثرة استخدامه بأمريكا بدون لا نحرج اللاجانب بهالشي ،، لانهم من الله كانوا يخزون فما بالك لو بقولهم اني اتحجى عن شي معاهم خاصة اني اتكلم بلغة ما يفهمونها غالبيتهم


The Never Ending Movie Quiz, is the only thing that made me back off from canceling my facebook account. I'm not active in it & I am so puzzled with why would total strangers add me to their friend's list & not talk to me nor get to know me?!! One case was a person I know by the nickname only through the net, so that person "female or male" adds me to their list, we know each other & that's it !! no interaction no nothing?! it felt so weird to me, why add up people when you don't have any thing in common with them, don't talk to them, don't do any activity with them !!?? Final result, I removed them from my list.

Which is very similar to the people who add me on MSN's IM and not talk to me, nor introduce them selves & they do not tell me what do they want!! They are just an added number/ contact & that's it!! others might think its ok to pill up people, but to me it doesn't make sense :D Therefore tonight will be cleaning up night :D



ما ادري شنو قصتي مع العطساااااات ،، خلق الله يعطسون عطسه عطستين و خلاص انتهى الفلم ،، انا ان عطست لاااااازم 7 او 8 عطسات ورا بعض ،، ساعات يكون اكو فجه بسيطة بينهم بس عموما مايطلعون الا مع بعض

Pillow Talk & Anti-Reason





Once there was a dear blogger around, his nickname was Anti-Reason, I used to like his blog a lot & loved his quizez even more, also there was his contribution with Esetch in the Red Danube novel to be :) which was amusing, and there is a blog dedicated to it, an other blogger linked to him is the dearest Kuwaiti Demon, all those 3 great persons/ bloggers I follow silently due to lack of time to comment, which is a thing that makes me lose contact with a lot who might think I don't visit their blogs, sorry to all :) who know I read for them or don't. Back to Anti-Reason who I miss so much in the blog-o-sphere, latelly he has been on my mind a lot, I wish him happiness & good health at all times & in any where in this world :D

Anti-Reason once recommended an old romantic comedy, since I like this genre and spoke about it in the post that I linked just a few words back from those, he advised me to see it, time passed by & I got to see Pillow Talk. I liked it so much that I kept seeing the recorded tape with the Channel 2 logo on all the time "ANYTHING other than the movie appears on the screen, gets on my nerves" & the ADs which I have to fast forward because I left the VCR recording & saw it later :P I enjoyed this movie and since that day it became one of my all time favorites. Today I downloaded it, although am waiting for its DVD :D but couldn't resist when I found it through uTorrent. I love this movie & recommend it to ALL romantic comedy lovers.

Last but not least, Anti-Reason like Pillow Talk drew a smile on my face & on many other bloggers/ blog readers faces :D may he be well at all times, and all other bloggers I miss.

Random thoughts

(1)

In a simple event that went on a while ago I saw how much our attitude can make a problem big or small! Through an issue I thought was huge and turned out to be not so big! Exaggeration is a problem breeder.

Virtue ,, EXAGGERATION is bad when it comes to problems! hmm I don't know if its ever good in any way?


(2)

In a try to reply with the same amount of fire that was in the message sent to me, I found my self failing to send the even more fiery reply that I wrote & intended to send simply because I'm not convinced with it, after a conversation with my bro. who is a Leo too, that is as stubborn as I am but with age he is becoming more flexible than I am, I realized that I will take his advice! because replying quietly to that message will smooth things, turn off the fire and still keep me on the track I want to be on. Now with this brother in particular, the closest one to me, we are so close yet so appart, from that I belived that two people with the same characteristics DO NOT get a long well (Opposites Attract is so true, suddenly I hear Paula Abdoul's in the background of my head).



Yes we understand each other WELL, but when it comes to making things we both want to but in our different distinct ways, we get stuck!! you see I know that what he is saying is right OR he knows what I'm saying is right!! Now he knows that I know that its right OR at times I know that he knows that I'm right!! but because he said it OR I said it, we "depending on who gave the advice" have to modify it! although he OR I "again depending on who gave the advice" know that what he OR I say is right! and that we both think the same... but because he OR I said it "the adviser" we will not do it the EXACT way the adviser among us said it because he OR I thought of it too! in that same way...... It's a never ending battle that makes me realize by the day how much I love my brother & need him. Thank you ;p you got me & my car back on track.

and if you read this post up to this line, then you are my hero LOL....

NOTE
*1 am* I just noticed the post time!!
:D I love it

To my K750i ,, كفيت ووفيت



ِِA serious fall right on the asphalt caused the screen to get broken on the side, which was the only reason that spared the poor device the agony of it being my mobile. The K750i survived ME for more than a year, which is with a regular user comes to be 10 years! Falling down is one of the many activities any mobile I own should be used to, however this last fall caused the screen to be broken! which made me buy an other one, although am waiting for the K850i with 5 Mega Pixel camera OR the T650i ,,, tough luck



The broken screen up close and the things on the screen that appear like dust are actually scratches that grew over time on my poor K750i



An other view of the bends & scratches spread around the mobile cover along with the lost "Quick Share" sticker that used to fill the space under the Zero in the keypad



The Sony Ericsson word printed beside the logo also faded away, which is a thing that I till now can not explain how did it happen


Last but not least my choice for the time being was the SonyEricsson K810i. So far 0 falls, days elapsed 2, a Q80-ChillGirl record...

For the record, the K750i is still working, the only thing that made me get an other one is that the scratch in the screen bothered me & almost sliced my cheek ;p

From here & there

Busy week, work mostly, it seems at times that the 8 hours I spend there are not enough! I barely sleep, I hate it when my brain becomes too busy that sleeping turns into a hard task. Hoping that by next week the work load is less or I get used to it :D

السبت عطله وناسه بس هم ببالي الشغل و احس هاليوم اللي بفقده بيأثر على كمية الشغل اللي ممكن اخلصه ،، وصلت الفكره اشكثر انا ببالي الشغل؟؟

It is fascinating how some people take lying to be a profession :D to the extent that they are not afraid to tell you that you are NOT you! A person who is at a high level is actually lowering him self, shattering his image in front of people with his lies! Poor him


تفاجأت بيوم الخميس ان اهلي مسوين لي مفاجأه اللي خربتها عليهم امي لانها بطت الجربه لما قالت لي اييي ترى لازم تشكرين فلانه "بنت خالتي" لانها جابت لج كيك بمناسبة عيد ميلادج!!
بنت خالتي جابت لي كيكتين بنكهتيني المفظلتين (كاكاو - منجا) و الالذ بالموضوع انهم من البرررررررررررررردد!! كيك عايسكريم
و بناء على طلب الاخ اكزومبي و نحاستي مدموجين معاً هذي صورة من قطعتيني من الكيكتين :> و الكيك تشطب عليه بحزتة لا و المشكله ما تذكرت اصور الا بعد ماكليت من الكيكه!،، اي و اخوي عطاني لعبتين "بقرتين" هدايا وحده منهم تقول "موووو" بس بدون نفس لوول

هالسنه غير، ماتعودت على ان احد يحتفل فيني و انا ما القي عيد ميلادي ذاك الاهتمام اصلا ،، و هم من بعد الغزو ماقمت اهتم كللللش بهالشغله ولا اختب و اذا كلش كللللش يمكن و مو اكيد نجتمع على كيكه او عزيمه بس مو هدايا و اغاني و مفاجأه و خبه ،، و حتى ربعي بالدوام اختبوا :> احبهم كلهم



الكيكة البنية بنكهة الكاكاو وجلي عليها عوارض الافتراس من قبلي، بلشت فيها بما اني مدمنة كاكاو


Dinner out is what I plan to do tomorrow, an early one so I can sleep early, I miss sleeping well!

قريباً ،،، بتكلم عن هالكتاب

B-Day

I'm 27 :D

In the year that passed by, I changed a lot and my life too, a major change has occurred, a good one. I still can't escape the fact that 2.8.1990 is the worst day in my life by far, it was the day that the former Iraqi president Saddam Hussain ordered his troops to invade Kuwait.

To every thing there is an up & a down, my b-day might correspond to many with a bad date, and then again it is the date which I came into the world & use to know how much time did I spend on this planet.

3 days back, I celebrated my blog's 3rd b-day, now its my 27th :D
both odd numbers!!

Eternal Champions

A blast from the past


Eternal Champions was my most loved fighting game, unlike most people who at that time "early 90's" liked Street Fighter more.

"Plot

Nine of the greatest fighters throughout history have met untimely and unjust deaths. They now compete against each other for a chance to face the "Eternal Champion" and reclaim their souls. The victor will return to Earth with the chance to avenge his or her own death and restore balance to the universe."[from Wikipedia]

My Favorite character which I used to LOVE fighting with was, of course a female! called Shadow Yamoto,



She was an assassin working for "the black orchid" and was thrown from the 101st floor, after she tried to quit working for them. TI used to & still like her character the most, I found her fighting technique Ninjutsu to be the most interesting of them all.
