** The End **

"Endings are just beginnings in disguise."

::: The Unsolved Mystery :::

Men always brag about being simple and straight forward. They brag about knowing all the right moves at the right time. They brag about their capability of making "things" under control. They brag about their different talents and amazing skills whatever they are. They brag about being on top of all areas of all aspects of life.

HOWEVER, The ONLY area they fail to succeed at; the ONLY area that they won't brag about even if they are on top of it; the ONLY area that they rather hide their skill than flaunt it.The ONLY area they fear is:
"" The area of "Showing Emotions" ""

:::Unsolved Mystery::: Men & Emotions:::
Last thought: Why is it always either "too soon & too corny to be true" or "too real but too late to have that magical effect" ?

Action Vs. Reaction

Day: Sunday
Time: 7:05 P.M
Location: Arraya Center

The scenario:
It was a nice day after a long weekend. Well, to me it was still the weekend since I didn’t go to work, (Salute to the “Kaifi Kuwaiti” motto *giggles*). I was having late lunch (or early dinner) with my friend at Burger boutique. Such a quiet evening; we were talking, laughing, munching on juicy classic burgers, fighting with the dynamite fries and simply having a great time. All good, all fun and fine AND THEN out of the blue a LOUD ALARM/SIREN went off!!! It was so freakin` loud and it felt like the whole building was shaking! For a minute there, I thought that an airplane was flying right on top of Arraya. All I remember is my friend running towards the parking lot (I had the car keys so, DUUUH!); people had this terrified look on their faces, while I had this big chunk of burger in my mouth and thinking Daaaamn! I can’t just run and leave without paying the bill! So, I ended up staying until everything was back to normal. We finished our dinner peacefully.

Now, whenever I remember that scenario again, imagining that a war was on and it was real; I hear a voice screaming in my head, saying:


Last thought: Was that my natural reflex? Was it my conscious? Or what the hell was it? And above all, what would be the “right reaction” in such cases? *rolling-eyes*

** My Beloved 3antar **

I just realized that My 3antar (or "3antar Wachini" as I always call him), passed away two years ago, 22-August-2004. I miss those hazel eyes looking at me as I pass by or when I just try to piss him off :( He had those killer sad eyes that would make your heart melt. My mom HATES dogs, but she got attached to 3antar. He definitely knew the way to the people's heart. He was joyful, playful and a hell of a biter (yup, used to bite me all the time, he thought I was his chewing toy). He was amazing, nevertheless.

"" Miss you 3antar Wachini ""

Last thought: I can still imagine him wagging his tail and jumping joyfully whenever I sang his song: "3antaaar wachiniiiiii, 3antar 7abeeeby, wachinniii wachiiini chinniii chinniiii"

My "To-Do-List" :)

A couple of hours before we reached the millennium, I created this "to-do-list". My goal is to check all the points on it before I turn 30. It's not impossible, nothing serious nor have any fancy schmancy stuff. It's just me; and things I wanna do to enjoy life. It's like my constant reminder that I should have some fun.. I am working on it. And lovin` it :)
So, here goes:

1- Get a golden tan at the Delano's pool (check)
2- Celebrate one of my birthdays in Las Vegas (check)
3- Go sky-diving.. (Had to cancel it due to my mom's begging and crying :/ )
4- Swim with dolphins (Not yet..I missed my appointment at the aquarium)
5- Get my scuba-diving license (check)
6- Ride a motorcycle and enjoy the speed. (Not yet)
7- Horse riding on the beach (Not yet)
8- To fall completely and madly in love with someone (Hmm this belongs to my WISH list hehe)

10- Learn Spanish and Italian (semi-checked; as I learned a little of both :P)
11- Learn to dance Salsa/merengue/bachata (check)
12- To have a well-established career. (working on it)
13- To be "excellent" in squash (Not yet! I still suck at it)
14- To control my mood swings (Not yet!)
15- To be able to check as many from this list. If not, then I should be happy with what I accomplished already.

Yup, so that's my fun list.. What's yours?

The "Other" Final Question!!

Before announcing the name of the A+ student, who got the FIRST (and in this case, the ONLY) CORRECT answer of the “Final Question”, I want to tell a story. A true story. Well, it’s another “Final Question” story. Probably a lot of people heard/read it before. Anyways, the story went something like this:

In one of the universities in California, 3 arab students (2 Saudi guys and 1 kuwaiti, if am not mistaken) were torn between attending a final exam or hitting a big party/event in Las Vegas. Obviously, being guys and all *wink*, they decided to ditch the final exam and attend the event instead. They planned to lie to their nice professor. The professor was known for being nice, forgiving and giving the same exam for re-takes. The guys went to Las Vegas, had a blast and enjoyed their time. On their way back, the agreed on telling the professor that they missed the final because they had a flat tire. They told him and begged for a re-take. He agreed. They memorized the answers and went to the final exam with full confidence. He told them that since it’s a re-take and he didn’t feel like giving them the usual test, he would give them “one question”. They agreed with a grin on their faces, thinking “what a dumb a$$”. He placed them in 3 different rooms. He gave each of them a small piece of paper with the question: You told me you got a flat tire that stopped you from coming to the test, so, What tire was it?"

The big announcement:
The A+ Student. The One . The Only.. The Smarty

------------ “ The Simper”------------

**Based on the story. The right answer to the question “Why?” is “Because!”

**Congrats "The simper", and yes, everyone who made an effort to answer passed as well ;)

Last thought: Just in case, you're wondering, the three students FAILED the class .. That's what you get for cheatin`;P

The Final Question!!

A Psychology professor walked into a classroom, where he’s supposed to give his students their final exam. He told them that it was going to be a "one question" final. All answers are right. However, only ONE CORRECT answer would get the “A+”, and only the first student to come up with it would get that grade. The students were thrilled and super happy; especially that he added that the question would be written on the board while he would go sit in his office until they were done. They couldn’t be happier. So, he walked to the board and wrote the following question:


All students looked puzzled at first; then they started writing whatever they thought right. Of course, one student got an A+. My question now is:
Can you come up with the CORRECT answer and snatch the only A+?

Sleepless night...

Usually I have no-to-light dinner, and at least 4 hours before I head to bed. Tonight, my brother challanged me to have 3 slices of Pizza, which I DID (big mistake!) :/

Feeling: Soo full and stuffed.

Needing: To ZzZzZzzleeep (I just cant lay down when feeling full, sad no? ) :/

Wanting: To kill my Brother

Thinking: My brother challenged me to have those slices as a failed attempt to kill me. He is after the 32.75 KD I have in my Bank Account *light bulb* (I knew it! its all clear now .. it makes sense!)

So, the question is... Shall I sue him?!

A Real Dilemma !!

If have to choose between:

"Never to have a luscious kiss!"
"Never to have a delicious meal!"

What will you choose?

Sunday, August 13, 2006


I got this via e-mail.. I thought it was funny yet sad and sooo freakin` true.. Well emm at least most of `em :)

"As I matured...

* I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.

* I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes.

* I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

* I've learned that you can get by on charm for about 15 minutes. After that, you'd better have a big willy or huge boobs.

* I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are more screwed up than you think.

* I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.

* I've learned that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades, and there had better be a lot of money to take its place!

* I've learned that people you care most about in life are taken away from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away.

Pass this to others.. Trust me, they'll appreciate it. Who knows maybe something good will happen . If not.... Tough shit (a.k.a life)"

Last thought: She says her love won't cost a thing.. But a house, a car, two maids and a big diamond ring.. And she insists that it won't cost a thing..wow.. Then what would you call all that bling bling?! ;)

I still wonder... I still remember ..

I still wonder why you broke my heart..
I still wonder where it went wrong..
I still wonder why it felt like we belong..
I still wonder how it would be now..
I still wonder about every broken promise and vow..
I still wonder about the" love" that vanished somehow..

I still remember how I survived..
I still remember the day my heart died..
I still remember the river of tears I cried..
I still remember the time when "love" left my side..
I still remember how my life went on..
I still remember the day when you were gone..
I still remember you saying you loved me and that I was your number One..
I still remember your smile when I said that you were my only one..

I still wonder how I lived for years without a heart..
You see, my heart stopped beating the moment we were apart..
I still remember my emotional drain .. all the agony, the sorrow and pain .. and I smile .. because..
I know that I loved you and I would love you all over again..

Last though: After all being said and done.. I'm gonna Let it Go! Let it burn! The pain shall go away and never return! (sounds like a black magic spell *giggles* )

Brain Vs. Tongue

I went to Starbucks with Patoota the other day. (please note that both brain and tongue in the story belong to moi)

Starbucks Guy (SG): Hello :) May I take your order?
Me: hi .. well, I need one coffee frappuccino.. Runny please
SG: Sure ma`am, what size?
(brain: Tall please..)
Tongue: Latte, please.
SG: You want a latte?
Me: NOOO, I want a runny coffee Frap.!
SG: Ohh Ok, what size?
(brain: Tall..)
Tongue: Latte..
SG: Do you want a latte? or a Coffee Frap.?
Me: I want a coffee Frap!!.. Sheesh! *frustrated!*
SG: and the size .. ?
Me: Latte!! Latte!! *pissed-off tone*
(brain: you've been saying Latte instead of tall size idiot!!!)
*NOW it hits me!!*
Me: Ohh I meant Tall size please :/ *super embarrassed*

I turned to Patoota and she had a wide stupid grin on her face, "yeah that's what you get when making fun of my Monalisa hahahaha", she said it with full satisfaction ...

Last thought: Don't you just hate it when your brain and tongue dont agree?! Your brain says something and your tongue just say another thing... Your brain wants to keep mouth shut, but your tongue let it all out?! Slip of a tongue haaa ? :/

Girls.. Girls.. Girls..

I just hang up after a long dramatic conversation with my friend a.k.a Drama Queen... We, girls, are smart and sharp. The thing is, we dont act like it. We know more than we give ourselves credit for. But girls are girls and boys are boys.. We are different and we are supposed to be different. Once we, girls, understand and accept that, we would lead a happier life..

He loves you. He cares for you. Dont be greedy. Dont ask for more. Dont push it. Dont be extra sensitive. Let him take it step by step. Let him embrace the idea of you being together forever. If he wants it, he'll go for it in a heart-beat. Don't hint about it. Don't talk about it. Once you do, Opsyyyy.. You scare him away. Do you want that?! Ahhhhhhhhhhh-Nope.. So, please girls memorize this simple equation.. and UNDERSTAND IT GODDAMIT!

Let's see the final result of bringing up the "M word" by us, girls...

M = Marriage = Zawaj (in arabic) = starts with a 'Z'
Z= end of alphabetic order and used to describe the 'end' in many situations

so, we get to conclude that:

M = Z = END of your relationship

So, to my friend and to all girls, If you like your guy.. If you love your guy.. Give him the time you think he needs. If the time is up and he didnt get to step forward. Then the chances are,HE'LL NEVER WILL.. Bringing up the subject will only make it worse (bad break-up).. So, please girls Understand the idea and accept it. Move on! :)

Last thought: M = Z = END of your relationship <--- a great way to break-up with someone if this is what you are looking for *evil grin* Neyaha ha ha ;)

"Darling, sweety,honey, would you please please please STOP BEING SUCH A DRAMA QUEEN?!" That's all, thank you .. wuv yew :* *kisses & Hugs*

Last thought: True
Friendship lasts FOREVER :)

I've been "Cupped" !!

Ok, so here's the story.. I love massages sooo much that I'm actually addicted. I mean who doesnt love those long relaxing massages after a long day at work or after a fun weekend full of activites? Mostly, I go to spas to spoil and pamper myself BUT sometimes I really NEED those massages coz my back would freakin` hurt. I love trying out new places and spas, different massages and techniques and new ways to make me feel spoiled *wink*

Anyhoooo, after a long exercise at the gym the other day, my back was killing me. It was nothing like the usual post-exercise pain. It was waaaaay worse! *sniff* Whenever I moved my shoulder or try to reach out to something, I would feel a sudden painful pinch! It would come and go as it pleased. For no freakin` reason other than me moving. So, what the heck was I supposed to do?! Not move at all?!?!?!

So, I decided to have a massage which might set me free from all that awful pain.And I did, I went to this chinese woman, had two hours of great massage, had that specific spot massaged and pressured and I was all happy and ready to go. I was done, right?! Ahhhhhhhhhh-NaH!! Once I moved from that massage table and that F$#&^@ pinch came back stronger that ever!!! My eyes were all teared up... Yup it was soooo painful that I was gonna cry right then and there (dont you be calling me cry-baby until you suffer like I did :P)

The chinese woman suggested the fire-cupping therapy. She was so damn sure that it would be the best solution. At that point, I was like what daa hell? Fire or no fire, I need this to go AWAY! So, I got cupped! I expected the cups to be hot and burnin` but it wasnt like that. She would use the fire to heat up the air in the cup or something then squeeze the cup into my back to the point that it would stick. After 5 minutes it started to hurt, as its been squeezing more and more. However, IT DID THE TRICK! I felt no pinch. I had no pain. I was free all over again. *GRIN*

I went back home, telling mamaty all about the experience bs once I showed her my back, she started crying! I didnt see my back.. I didnt know why she was crying. I took a look at the mirror and it was all bruised-looking like someone had beaten the *beep* out of me. I was ok with that, am pinchless now *grin*. My mom, however, started lecturing me about me being my worse enemy and that I always manage to hurt/burn/bruise myself and always finding new ways to do it, Cupping being the latest heheheh (Love you Nooni :* , u're sooo cute! *Umwah*)

Last Thought: Why is it that whenever I decide to take you off my mind, heart and life, it's the same time you decide to show up again with ur love and care?!

I Love Being Broke...

Here are my reasons... I Love being broke because ....

  1. I would spend more time exercising at the gym. (cuz I don’t have any other place to go to and waste ma money.. emm but but I love the wasting-money part *sigh*)
  2. I wouldn’t go to restaurants as much as I usually do. So I get to enjoy some home-cooked meals. (yum yum)
  3. I would actually lose a couple of vanity kilos due to reasons #1 and #2 (yaaaay!)
  4. I would do more of those family visits and “passing-by-to-say-hi” thingy… Family thinks am adorable, they love me, I get my #1 spot in their favorite people list. (And again.. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!)
  5. I would spend more quality time with Nooni Mooni (ommy). I would tease her bs she always end up making me the laughing-stock. (Thanks Nooni :/)

Last thought: Who the heck am I kidding! I HATE being broke .. Now show me the moneeeeeeeeeeeeeyyy !!! $$$

The Mona Lisa & the shopping Spree...

Yesterday, I fulfilled my promise to Patoota and gave her the birthday shopping spree she wanted. We went to Souq sharq at around 5 and ended it at Al-Fanar (enshalla finalizing it at Burjman soon - that's another promise *wink*). We had a great time and a major laughing stomach-ache.

I will always remember these moments,
  • The way Patoota looked while trying the "kimono thingy" LOL. Still wondering how she got it on at the first place.All I remember is her laughing and almost crying while screaming "Get me out of this" and her arms sticking out next to her head hehehe

  • Patoota wanted to say "Mona Lisa" at some point, but it kept coming out as "Lemon-iza". She was trying hard, she knew its "Mona Lisa" but whenever she say it its always "Lemoniza". She got pissed and turned red while I was wiping my tears laughing hehehe. She then said it right (Thank God!).. BUT!! when we got home and she wanted to tell the story, she was like "tathkereen lama ma 3araft agool "Lemozina" ?" .. Huh? Lemozina? where did this come from? hahahaha Patoota. Upset again. No "Mona Lisa" for you :P

Last thought: Why? Oh why? Why is it that whenever I go to a shop that has an on-going sale, I ALWAYS end up buying the "not-included-in-sale" items?
