Heavenly Bagels

Ordered Heavenly Bagels as something new to have for breakast at work. Although too heavy, the bread itself is, it was delicious. I chose the Simple Scrambled, Sunny Side Up, Twisted Halloom, Luscious Labnah, and Chunky Crunch (which is crunchy peanut butter and jelly)breakfast bagelwiches. The favorite of the bunch was the Sunny Side Up which consists of a sunny side up egg, melted cheese, and sprinkled with zaater. Divine! The halloom bagel was the next favorite. You can choose from bagel types and choose how you want them to be, whether crunchy or warm soft. You can also choose from a list of spreads you want the bagel to include. Bagels aren't only for breakfast, they've got chicken, meat, and fish bagel sandwiches.

Bice Ristorante - Kuwait

Milan's very own Bice restaurant opened in Kuwait about a month ago.  You probably have been or heard about their other branch in Dubai, which I haven't been to yet.  We lack fine dining in Kuwait, although we have a few good restaurants like the ones in Sheraton, we need to have something new and elegant.  Bice was that and more.  Located in the extravagant and new Al Hamra, the food and service was impeccable.
قبل اسبوع تعشينا في مطعم من ميلان "بيتجي" والكائن في مجمع الحمرا.  المطعم في قمة الرقي وكنا نفتقد هالشي في الكويت والبعض يمكن سمع فيه من قبلأو جربه في ميلان أو دبي.

Kitchenette - Istanbul, Turkey

Kitchenette is the best place to catch brunch or a quick bite in Istanbul, Turkey.  You will find a branch of the all day rustic bistro practically everywhere including their international airport.  Like The House Cafe, the atmosphere is homey and warm.  My favorite Kitchenette cafe is the one in Bebek, I think its the largest in space, we went there for breakfast, which is the best meal to grab there, where we sat on their huge terrace.  Other known branches are the ones in Ortokoy, where I had lunch in, and Kanyon Mall among others.
 مطعم كتجنيت أحسن مكان حق ريوق وغدا سريع  وهو موجود تقريبا في كل مكان في اسطنبول في تركيا حتى في مطارهم الدولي. أمن رأيي أحلى فرع هو الي في منطقة بيبيك ةهة كبير والقعدة على بلكوناتهم الكبيرة واللي تطل على الشارع الرئيسي والبحر مو  طبيعية.  أنصح بالريوق ألذ وجبة في المطعم.  أفرع ثانية معروفة لكتجينيت هو في اورتوكوي وكانيون مول.

Kuwait Celebrates Golden Jubilee Anniversary of the Constitution

Yesterday, Kuwait celebrated and went in to the Guinness Books of Records for the biggest fireworks show ever as relief from all the political unrest we've been suffering for weeks.  Hours of national unity and awe from the beautiful fireworks show changed all ill feelings as the Kuwaiti nationals enjoyed the day like no other!  I was lucky to be there!

Sakirin Mosque - Istanbul, Turkey

A mosque worth visiting and praying in if you're Muslim.  I've been adamant about visiting Sakirin Mosque even though the driver said it was in the Asian side of Istanbul and was rather far from where we were.  I didn't care, I read so many great things about the design of this modern mosque, said to be the first modern mosque in Istanbul and the first Islamic mosque to be designed by a woman, that I had to see it to believe it, to the dismay of my group.  Everything changed once we arrived to the city cemetery, where the mosque was located in.  Even more was our surprise once we went inside just in time for prayers.  I took as much photos as possible, and they still didn't show the beauty of the place.
 مسجد ساكيرين  هو مسجد مصمم بطريقة حديث يقع في الناحية الآسيوية من اسطنبول في مقبرة مدينة اسكودار.  وهو جميل ويستحق  الزيارة. هو أول مسجد يصمم بطريقة حديثة في اسطنبول وأول مسجد اسلامي تصممه امرأة.

The House Cafe - Istanbul, Turkey

I confess to going to The House Cafe everyday of my trip in Istanbul, Turkey.  Repeating cafes is something I never do, but this one's an exception.  The reason is, that we went to a different branch every day.  We couldn't have enough of their double chocolate brownie, which is one of the best I had, thus to why I've been heading to the shabby cafe this frequently.  They've got other great yummy dessert like their lemon lemon and poppy seed pound cake, their chocolate tart, and their cheesecakes. You can also have traditional drinks you came to Turkey to enjoy, like Turkish tea and Turkish coffee.  And they're exceptionally good.  My favorite branch is Ortokoy's and the most visited one is Nisantasi's just because its really close to our hotel.  There's a branch practically everywhere, a total of 13 branches around Istanbul.  There's even one in Istiniye Park (best mall there) and Kanyon Mall.  I recommend staying at their sister boutique hotel The House Hotel (3 branches in Istanbul).
كنا نروح قهوة ذا هاوس كافيه في اسطنبول كل يوم من كثر ما نحب الحلو الي عندهم.  نادر ما أكرر مطاعم أو قعاوي لكن كنا انوع كل مرة نروح فرح من أفرع القهوة.  حبينا البراوني طلبوها مسخنه مع آيس كريم.  قهوتهم وشاي التركي زينة والقعدة برة ما تتطوف خاصة في شارع نيشانتاشي. القهوة لها 13 فرع في اسطنبول يعني موجودة في كل مكات تقريباً.
