Sundayz Gossip - Kim is engaged !

Well aren't we suprised? Kim Kardashian is getting engaged to Kris Humphries ! The news was covered only in People Magazne. I was so shocked that she got engaged, not that I thought she would never get married. But it definately was unexpected to me. I don't watch "Keeping up with Kardashians" daily, but I watched almost all episodes of "Kim & Kourtney Take New York". It was nice seeing Kim and Kourtney bond more, because Kourtney was always with Khloe. Ahh ! I am happy for Kim right now, Good for her !

Happy Birthday Ibn Khaldun ! :)

Ibn Khaldun was one of the great philosphers that came out of the Arab World. His theories is appreciated and used by many countries now and before ! He is best known for his Muqaddimah (known as Prolegomenon in English).

I made Truffles - YAY !

Well, I am a pretty bad cook. I am very bad with food - except eating it afcourse -. At Wednesday, one of my close friends brought for us Truffles, and they were delicous ! She told me the recipe wich is
-Oreos (The original one)
- & Galaxy
She told me to break the oreas and melt the butter and mix them together in a processor - is that what the electronic mixer called? -
and then melt the galaxy and scoop some over every oreo ball.
Sorry if this is Upside down :P

It didn't turned out as good as my friend's afcourse ! But it is edible ! My friend told me because I used the caramel oreos and a lot of Butter !! which made it a bit salty and quite hard !
But I really did love my first "dish" - If I can call it that - !
I never succeeded in any of my cooks ! They all ended up in the trash, but this ended up in our stomachs !! :P

Khaleejesque: Hind Beljafla

Well, I decided to start this Weekly Post called "Khaleejesque". Featuring influential and stylish women from the Gulf and almost everything Khaleeji (Anything that relates to the Arabic Gulf)  !!. The name was inspired by the famous Khaleeji Website, and adding something from us "Kahleejees" is a nice idea!

 The first woman who is featured in this program is Hind Beljafla. The stylish arabic woman behind the gorgeous Abayas of DAS collection. Her collection is now sold in many Hot places - like Harrods ! She is known for her trendy abayas and beautiful face. Here she is !

Lunch at Burger Fuel

So, a couple of days ago one of my relatives told me to go try a burger at Burger Fuel a New Zealand fast food restaurant. I went to the Burger Fuel at The Walk - Dubai. The restaurant was designed for Monster Truck drivers which I liked because I actually consider it as an "exotic" restaurant - for Dubai -. Iwas pretty hungry so I ordered the "BF Monster" A burger with almost everything in - even Mango ! Well I know you would think - ewww - but I wanted try something different and I thought of trying a burger with Mango ! I also ordered potatos -It doesn't come with the burger- and Coke! They got me the burger in a paper bag and the potatos in a like a mini Popcorn box. Very monstrous?! Haha.  The burger was delicous but I was full after the first bite !!

TREND ALERT: Thigh High Slits

Today is May 21, Is it really the end of the world?

As a Muslim, I don't believe that today is the end of the world. As a matter of fact, I am laughing at these people who think it is the end of the world, and how disappointed, embarressed, and stupid they will feel when they go back home safe and sound. Ironic isn't it?
ONLY God knows when is Judgement day.
