Finally I visited Qout market for the first time on last Saturday. At the first sight the place looked very spacious and very organized.

For those who doesn’t know what is it exactly, it’s an exhibition for small businesses-most of them are food business- established on the first Saturday of each month.

Compared to other exhibitions I’ve visited before, Qout had different, new and unique ideas in food, fashion, home accessories, food supplements and kids’ toys.
I tried there some Afghan pickles which was very tasty, watermelon juice -was very refreshing in the hot weather-, some biscuits and ice-cream.
The good thing about it that it had categorized booths, all booths under same category in one place. Some booths also had playing area for kids and activities like painting and puzzles so your kids can enjoy their time while you are shopping.
I posted below some of booths pictures which caught my eye yesterday.

I liked the idea that loyac were selling a re-cycling bags  for people to use while shopping.

looking forward to the next one!

Last Wednesday I was invited to live station grilling night in Jumeirah Messilah beach hotel under name Chill & Grill night. Weather was amazing although it was little bit hummed but because it by the  sea and pool side there was a cool, amazing, refreshing breeze. The setup included live band playing  oriented music all the time, food, shisha and drinks. The first setup with the band was including the food  and by pool side. Food available was appetizers (taboulah, fatoush, hommos, mtabbal, baba ghanouj,  potato salad …), main dishes were different barbeque flavors (shrimp, lobster, sheshtawoq, steak, lamp,  fish, Hamour…) except beriany and packed potato. For me the best was the shrimp, lobster and steak. If  I will evaluate the food I would rate it to get 8/10.







The second setup was by sea side including only shisha and hot drinks. It has two types of chairs couches  and bean bag chairs, which were very comforting especially with the sea wave sounds.






Overall experience was good and would rate it to be 9.5/10. Food could be better but service, atmosphere and setup makes you condones the food taste.Chill and grill night happening every Wednesday from 7pm to 11 pm, worth a visit!

لقد أطلق على ملكة جمال سويسرا 2013، لقب بيليجانزا كرونو ليدي لساعات اليد المذهلة من ماركة بالمان. وعلى نحو مماثل للكرونوغراف، تقيس الفترات الزمنية القصيرة – لغاية 30 دقيقة – فضلاً عن عرض الوقت واليوم. ولكن على غرار الكرونوغراف العادية، فان هذا التصميم يقوم بعرض قسطاً كاملاً من السحر الجذاب.

إنها ولدت في عالم حصري لآخر صيحات الموضة الباريسية وتأسست على يد  المصمم الشهير بيير بالمان. و جلبت بالمان التقاليد القديمة التي تتميز بالذوق والأناقة إلى عالمنا الحديث. واليوم فهي تتمتع بالروح الأصلية التي تقود المجموعة الداعمة لمصنعي الساعات السويسرية الرائدة – مصدر من المزايا الفنية والتسويقية التي لا تقدر بثمن على قدر الاستفادة من ساعات بالمان.

The talented Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed their first wedding dress for their long time friend, stylist Molly Fishkin, who tied the knot with, producer/director, Asher Levin in Los Angeles just recently. Their dress was featured on this month’s issue of Vogue.

Molly had known Mary-Kate and Ashley for over 15 years, and once she had told them the news of her engagement they immediately said that they wanted to design her wedding dress. Molly of course accepted their offer and was extremely happy with the whole designing process and she expressed that the Olsen’s and their team were very patient and calm throughout every step of the way.

This was Mary-Kate and Ashley’s first time designing a wedding dress, and after looking at the pictures of the masterpiece, I dare say that it will definitely not be their last!

Everyone seems to be Snapchatting these days!

snapchat 1

So how did this popular app come about and by who? Here are the deets.

It all began when these young men met at Stanford University in 2008, Evan Spiegal, Reggie Brown and Bobby Murphy.

snapchat 3


One day, Brown had this idea where he wished that the pictures that he was sending this girl would just disappear, and that is when it all sparked.. They all started working on and coming up with the logo, which is still that same one used today, during the Summer of 2011. It was originally called “Pictaboo” and was finally launched in July 2011.

The team of then called “Pictaboo” got into a dispute about the name order that would appear on the technology patent as well as the equity splits. Evan and Bobby then decided to boot out Brown from the company and changed its name to “Snapchat” in the Fall of 2011!

snapchat 2

High school kids got hooked on the app and by April 2012, the number of users grew to 100,000 users. Evan dropped out of University just a few weeks before he was meant to graduate once he got all the money put in his bank. Kind of a shame but oh well!

In February 2013, Brown, who was the guy that they basically kicked out of the company, filed a law suit against Snapchat for Breach of Joint Venture. This law suit is still going on now and they have yet to make a decision or settle!

So anyways, Snapchat got so popular that Facebook offered three billion dollars for Snapchat, however obviously they refused the offer as they were doing really good on their own! To prove this, by May 2013, the number of users went up to….150 million users!!

nutelllaaa crepe

How would you like this as a dessert after your futoor? Oh believe me I know, I mean look at all that nutella in there.. Well It’s pretty simple to make and I will be taking you step by step.

Firstly let’s get the ingredients, you will be needing:

1 cup of flour

2 eggs

1 cup of milk

2 teaspoons of white sugar

2 teaspoons of butter

2 teaspoons of vanilla

1/4 teaspoon of salt

Now for the Crepe filling, you will need 3 medium bananas sliced and as for the nutella…I’m just going to leave that for you to decide!


1. Mix the eggs, vanilla, sugar, salt and milk really good together in a bowl.

2. When you see bubbles add the flour and the melted butter! Now mix together until it looks creamy and beige.

3. Now you’d want to melt some butter on a pan and add the mixture and cook for a few minutes in low heat. Don’t forget to flip it to cook it on the other side!

4. Now it’s time for you to fill ‘em up!!
