Pocket Full Of Sunshine

Ne me quitte pas

Sometimes being in this country drives to you to a point where you pack a bag and get on the first flight to anywhere, it’s only understandable. To keep your self sane in Kuwait you have to do things here and there to keep yourself busy like going to the gym or taking a dance class somewhere or horse riding. Whatever it is that makes you happy with the people that make you happy, thank God I’ve found the right people that understand me and we fit together like peas in a pod. Someone I love dearly (R) once told me that “Your hapiness lies in your hands” and that “God does not help those who do not help them selves” In a nut shell they mean the same thing and I really believe in these two quotes. Sitting at home saying how you want to get out of Kuwait and you hate blah blah blah and so and so won’t change anything. I’ve learned to appreciate Kuwait and what I have here, you have to learn to really read between the lines to find something to do because if you don’t, you will end up stuck every weekend going to malls and driving aimlessly on the streets in search of sanity. On the other hand, if walking back and forth in Avenues and driving up and down the streets makes you happy then so be it.

What makes YOU happy?


I cried because I had no shoes, then I met a man who had no feet.


A few days ago I took a bad fall whilst wearing my favorite heels and the front of the shoe (where my toes are) scraped the floor.. Thankfully my mobile saved my face from the floor because it was in my hand and my hand slid… I don’t think they’re reparable (click on thumbnail to see the damage :/ )

I usually use ultra super petrol for my car but yeserday I was at a petrol station where it wasn’t available so I used super, it seems to last longer than ultra super. So why am I paying more for petrol that finishes really quickly and is more expensive? Does it really make a difference?
What petrol do you use and how many days does it usually last you?


The Simpsons go to Paris with Linda Evangelista

I got this email yesterday, very creative concept but it’s old (Harper’s Bazaar August 2007) enjoy the pics. If anybody wants the high resolution ones leave a comment and I’ll mail you them!







You can’t help that, we’re all mad here!

These are just some random pictures I took of my cats while messing around with my camera a while ago…


(Priceless expression!)

The quote in the title is from Alice in wonderland… Remember The cheshire cat?

Paint Ball


Went paint-balling on Thursday with colleagues from the office. The place I must admit isn’t the cleanest thing in the world but it’s fun if you’re going with a big group of friends,  make sure to take at least one guy with you because there are all sorts of weirdos that sit there and watch.. Over all it was a fun experience minus the bruises the next day.. I took one shot to the head that left me with the biggest bump ever (ouch!)

It costs 7.750 KD for a regular rifle already filled with 200 bullets

100 extra bullets cost 2.500 KD

200 extra bullets cost 4 KD

PaintBall is located behind The Kuwait Towers

(Thanks Ricky for the camera otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to take my fabulous picture!)

Watch The Sunrise

I’ve had about 4 hours of sleep I’m literally dosing off at my desk, this is where my electronic drug music comes in handy!

I don’t understand why people do weddings when people have work the next day. In a nut shell the wedding was nice but the arabic music and the bride walking in left me nostalgic and kinda depressed, it reminded me of how badly I wanna get married! I left my shawl on the whole time because I felt my dress was so revealing in the light. Driving at 2 am on the high way is amazing the roads were practically empty!
