Pocket Full Of Sunshine


Words are useless especially sentences…

Interesting weekend… Went out with family to Colour Me Mine, I made myself a mug and I painted something for my sister which is a surprise until I see her in August, I know she reads my blog. While waiting for my other sister to finish painting the most detailed ceramic in the entire store I painted a peace sign, my mum added ‘of shit’ lol.

Different to my usual weekend routine. You have to keep the ceramics there for an entire week because they put them in some sort of an oven. I will post the pics when I get them.

 

I made chocolate cake with cream cheese and cinnamon. I got positive feedback from it…

 

 

I also made pasta with garlic and tomato. I put two small portions aside, one for work on Sunday and one from Monday and left the rest for everyone else.

 

 

 

Does anyone remember International Velvet and National Velvet? National Velvet came out in 1944, the sequel came out in 1978. My mum used to watch them then when I started horse riding she passed the video tapes down to me, I watched these movies over and over and over and over again. I used to watched them so many times that I memorised the lines, scenes, everything. Sadly though I lost the videotape when I was about 11. Which is when I stopped horse riding. I wish I could start again, I think about it alot. I found them on Amazon and I will be ordering them very soon.

Why me?

I’m suffering from the worst case of migraine ever. It’s never been this bad. The whole left side of my brain is KILLING me, it feels like someone is putting a screw driver through my head. This happened last night when I was in bed too. I hate this. I’m at work and can’t leave. I’m so frustrated.

Too much negativity in my last 3 posts…


Ini mini miny moe…

I have the Kuwait Arabic Advertising Awards tonight at 7. It sucked so badly last year, we’ll see if they improved. I was told to dress formally, so I was thinking a black cocktail dress.

LBD 1 is a short bubble dress that is ribbed with uneven velvet. Very plain very blah! But I could add a waist belt. It’s above the knee and the sleeves are long and fall loosely.

LBD 2 is also a short bubble dress but not as bubbly as LBD 1 it’s much shorter and is basically diagonal strips of different types of material all black. At the neckline there are a couple of large black rhinestones.

 

Little black dress 1? or little black dress 2? Up-do or leave my hair loose? My natural curls or straighten it? Red nails or pink nails? I’m so confused… I’m not good at making decisions, I tend to let people make them for me…

 


Incinerated

Ok maybe not incinerated, but it sure feels like it…

I was baking a cake for mama as soon as I got home. All went well until I picked up the baking rack to flip the cake. I forgot that I’d just taken it out of the oven which was 180 degrees. I instantly dropped it.

So now three of my fingers are burnt and bubbling, I didn’t get to finish making my cake, I’m angry, my fingers smell like tomato. And I was in such a good mood when I came home, I was gonna make cookies 😦

I’ll put up the pics of my finger tomorrow…

Bombay Bombay Ka Deewana

Bombay Bombay… Where do I start?

The restaurants we ate in were beautiful, the hotel was amazing but walking in the streets was disastrous. All in all I loved it! I fell in love with the city so quickly but the amount of poverty brought me to tears, literally.
When we were driving to the hotel from the airport I was crying so much. It really made me appreciate what I have. There were families of 5 to 9 people living in 4×5 houses made of cardboard and plastic sheets. The children were naked. The same bathroom was used by over 100 homes. Piles and piles and piles of crap on the road. It was a really sad scene.
There’s so much diversity in the culture, when you walk in the streets it’s full of homeless people, beggers, cows, dogs, rats, random people peeing on the side of the road, then you walk up stairs and out of nowhere you’re in a 5 star boutique hotel surrounded by beautiful people in suits and gorgeous diamante studded sari’s.
I got sick on the first day and was always in a mood because of my stomach cramps but managed to have a good time.

We missed our flight by a minute, we had to sit on the side of the road beside the airport for a couple of hours. As soon as we got in to buy our ticket we found out it wasn’t a direct flight. It was Mumbai – Bahrain – Dubai – Kuwait. We found another flight that was leaving in about an hour which was Kuwait airways. I haven’t flown Kuwait Airways since 1999, in a nutshell the airlines hasn’t changed since. They still play the crappy old films, serve crappy food. The only good thing was the service! We had the nicest stewardesses. The guy checking us in even upgraded us to first class. The take off was terrible, the pilot thought he was in an air show. The flight was full of turbulence from the moment we took off till we landed. Landing was more like an emergency crash landing.

I loved Bombay soo much that it was quite sad leaving it… The only draw-back was the amount of dirt that I faced.

I will be adding a new page on my blog very soon with photos. More later.


Inspired by Amethyst

So everytime I go on Amethyst’s blog there are all those funny little quotes her and her friends say, I have a list on my computer that we add to on a daily basis! Here are a couple:

 

 

D: Do fish sleep?
Me: No.. They don’t have eye lids
D: Awww… How do they put mascara?

Me: If she’s bubbles then what am I?
R: You’re cuddles
Me: You’re snuffles!!

(Driving on the high-way)
D opens car window
Me: where are you going?

 

D: Say it like you have no roof in your mouth

 

Alarm goes off in Krispy Kreme
Me: It’s Saddam bombing Kuwait!!
Weird Kid starts crying
Weird Kids Mom: Saddam is dead!
Me+M(in unison): Oh!

 

Waiting for valet to bring our car
Random guy comes right up to my face: Momken at7arash?
Me: Ummmm no!
M (starts laughing the lizard laugh)

Feedback

The hotel we’re staying at with ‘Mumbai’ written in Hindi on the billboard

I posted around two months ago claiming D and I were leaving to India in 2 weeks well 2 weeks turned into 2 months. We finally decided to leave tomorrow, we’re really excited! I’m taking my camera with me which should turn out to be interesting. We’re gonna be there for 4 days and 3 nights, which should be enough to run around and get everything we need. The name of the hotel is The Taj Mahal Palace and Tower I heard it is one of the cleanest in Bombay, I wouldn’t stay anywhere until I’ve read ALL the reviews on Trip Advisor.

R, D and S were explaining to me how dirty it is and that’s the only thing I’m scared of… I’m going to the co-op tonight to pick up about a litre of hand-sanatizer and detol wipes. I’m dead serious.

I’m looking forward to meeting R’s family and friends since we hear so much about them but I’ve never met her Indian family only the Kuwaiti ones.

I can’t wait to eat dosa and drink gola!!

Where can I find out what vaccines to take before I go? I searched online but I get different answers. Does anyone know what to take from personal experience? And where do I go get them?
