Crave Craze

Since we're still on the subject of food, wanted to share this dish I always have in Dalag S'hail in Mubarikiya. Kinda kids' play I guess, but I crave having it from time to time.

Mishaltit with icing sugar.
Next time, its the honey & creme mishaltit. They say its too good!

Second Visit to 86 Bistro

7aneen! This is for you.
I have taken a digital camera rather than a professional one. The restaurant was empty at the time. 6ala3t 7ariti!

86 Bistro is fast becoming a favorite of mine.

We went more than a week and ago, and I just had the pictures transferred to the PC.

Do you remember me mentioning that there burger was really popular. Well this visit was mainly aimed to satisfy my taste buds based on recommendation.

The girls I have gone with have never even heard about the place, so as usual it was me, lib6ainiya, to formerly introduce them to the bistro. I ordered practically everything on the appetisers section. So no one was upto any main dishes except for two of us. I got the burger and she got the ravioli with tomato sauce.

Fancy Seeing You Here

I love perfumes. Who doesn't?! But I mean I take my time choosing a scent.
It has to be sweet smelling. A lot of people hate sweet I know, but these are the smells that are clean and not too strong yet it attracts you when you catch a whiff of it on another girl.

I also love Amber. Really love it. Would go for Patchouli too if I'm going for an arabian powdery light smell.

My all time favorites:

Victor & Rolf's Flowerbomb
L by Lolita Lempicka
Vivienne Westwood's Boudoir
Reminiscence's Amber Reminiscence's Patchouli
Dior's Addict
Dior's Hypnotic Poison
D&G's The One
Laura Mercier's Amber Passion (out of stock)
Aljazeera Roses Musk

My sister, on the other hand, buys any perfume, ANY! She likes it she buys it. Homme and femme. Everything goes. So its rare that I find something I like in her room. But today she came in from shopping smelling extra sweet!

It's Jessica Sompson's first fragrance, Fancy.I love it, for now. I have to wear it once and see how it goes. I may change my mind if the smell turns into something else if you know what I mean.

Last week she brought th spin-off of this perfume and its called Fancy Love, which is also not bad, but very light that when we compared both perfumes on both hands, the latter was barely visible next to the first.

Two perfumes that I loved the smells too, not too new, but are recently released are Delices de Cartier and Gucci's Flora. SWEET! At first they don't seem that good. Smell them after a while.

What are your favorites?

a thought to share

Never assume the obvious is true...

My Visit to Wagamama and Choc & Mac

I had finally visited Wagamama. The place was super packed and I'm glad we girls thought of going there to have our dinner earlier than usual. 360 have sadly turned into one of those malls! Why now?! Because the three coffee shops in the ground floor have opened. I tried Fauchon a few weeks ago and just imagined how the mall would turn out to be if the two coffeeshops nearby opened at once. Oh and for those of you who haven't heard, The Meat Co. have opened. I loved how huge Wagamama was and the variety of seating rather than their original long dining tables putting you near complete strangers. I had appetisers, 2 main dishes, and dessert!  And I have to say the Chicken Katsu have made come out as the best dish yet again!

Another place I have been dying to visit since I love their food especially their main dishes is Julaia's Chocolate & Macaroon. I love the one in AlRaya, but I just had to try the one in the shalaih area since we always want a good non fast food to eat rather than the occasional barbeque and machboos! Its been a while since I tried their dishes, so I had different ones that what I was used to. I'm a big fan of their Nutella macaroons and so I had to have some and added the new flavors Kitkat and Digestive macaroons. The Kitkat was amazingly good! The pink pasta was good too and ofcourse the mini 1-inch burgers is always a must!
(I love their green painted chinko iteriors)
