Yesterday my brother's work permit request was rejected. His employer will apply again. Of course my brother is furious at this moment because he has been waiting in Lebanon for his Visa for more than a month, but fear not my fellow bloggers he has the answer to this dilemma. A Zambian Passport. Yes, you read it right. He is applying now for a Zambian Passport because any non Arab passport is now on the fast track. With this clever come back plan he is sure to be granted the work permit and the work Visa and he will surely be here before the end of this year.
After a year and a half it happened to me. Today morning I got a stone chip on my front glass, right in the middle. And being a positive soul I'm taking it as a sign from heavens above blessing my belonging to the City as this tiny chip has completed the last piece of the puzzle...I'm bound to blend/unify with my surroundings, go with the flow and eventually become part of the City... But will the City ever become a part of me? Will I be disturbing the City's harmony if I would to ask for diversity? A pinch of international culture? A taste of refined art? Souls need to be nurtured to mature and progress. During one of her episodes Oprah invited a few women from around the world to share their countries culture and daily routine. Women came from the edges of the world including Kuwait. I don't remember the name of the lady who represented the City but all she had to say is that women in Kuwait enjoy luxury shopping!!!! Would a little bit of Klimt, Rodin, Vivaldi, Shakespeare, Hugo... hurt our children more than the speeding bikes and the careless drivings? During the week when I was in Paris there was more than 25 theater plays, 30 exhibitions and 5 concerts being held around the city. Need to ask, need to try, need to move, need to react....

Today I had absolutly nothing to do. I hate when that happens. Well partially it's my fault cause I finished all the pending stuff yesterday and to my luck nothing new came up today. It's almost 5 which means I get to leave in almost 1 hour, yipeeeee. You know what's weird that I can't access my hotmail from work. MSN is working fine, but not hotmail, and it's getting on my nerves cause I see the e-mails comin in and the number in the (..) on the top of the window increasing but I CAN'T READ them. You know what's that like for me, not to be able to get something I really want? It's like a really irritating itch under your foot that u can just get rid of. Lately (about 3 months maybe) my blog has turned into a personal journal. Not that I'm complaining, at least not yet, but the whole purpose of this blog was to talk about Kuwait, it says so on the box up, look "the truth about the CITY". Well who can blame me right? I can't go on forever talking about the traffic, and the annoying RKFM DJ or the fashion rainbows in Marina Mall... I'm off now, going to get me somethin to eat then go clean the house (hubby was not here for a few days so its quiet messy) then pick up hubby from airport sleep wake up and do it all over again.
1- Why do you keep on watching the same movies over the years? Do you keep on reading the same books? 2- Why do we have to get a book (magazine, any reading material) with us to the bathroom? Does that help? 3- I think that birthdays should be celebrations of parents/mothers and not of the child born. I mean come on what did he actually do? 4- I can never recite the alphabet backwards. Does that make me drunk? 5- A3 bigger than A4. A1 bigger than A3. Isn't it just easier for the larger number to be the bigger size and so on? 6- Do people in Australia call the rest of the world 'up over'?
That's all I could come up with, any question botheirng u?
Cutting down on all the frou frou and keeping to the minimum all the emotional cry out's my 1 week vacation in Paris was ...(drum roll)...AMAZING....it was like a trip in time to a different dimensional universe where all makes sense and everything functions in perfect harmony for the good being of the individual....that's practiclly chinese mythology for this part of the world.
In more local terms... i got to practice my French (language), got me some Louis Vuitton's, stuffed myself with baguettes, croissants, moules, cheese and wine, saumon and jambon....in a few words,I had the time of my life. tankou Baby :)
To be on the safe side, yesterday I stayed in the office till Iftar to finish all my work, since a few sources claimed that Eid would be today. But it turned out to be on Thursday so today I have nothing to do. Soon it will be 3 and I will go home to prepare our backpacks. Our flight to Paris is tonight. I am so excited. The weather is freezing there and it will be raining too. I love winter vacations they make everything around us look so Romantic. Sipping a hot chocolate cuddling on the streets whispering Je T'aime....
To fall in love. To laugh until it hurts your stomach. To manage for a vacation at some pretty place. To listen to your favorite song in the radio. To go to bed and to listen while it rains out. To leave the shower and find that the towel is warm. To clear your last exam. To find money in a pant that you didn't use last year. To laugh without reasons. To hear accidentally that somebody says something good of you. To wake up and realize it is still possible to sleep a couple of hours. To hear a song that makes you remember a special reason. To make new friends. To be part of a team. The first kiss. To feel butterflies in the stomach every time that you see that person. To pass a while with your best friends. To see people that you like, feeling happy. To use a sweater of the person that you like. See an old friend again and to feel that the things didn't change. To have somebody that tells you that he/she loves you
