New PinkBerry in Jabriya

I just passed by a new food building in Jabriya.

Pinkberry, Starbucks, and Pizza Express will be opening here soon.

The building is in Jabriya, you take the first right just before Gulf Bank’s branch there, and it’s on the same street as Buffalo’s.


Starbucks’s Trenta super large size

Oh my my, the might huge Starbucks Trenta.

Starbucks are changing their logo, to celebrate their 40th anniversary. The new logo is simple, with no borders, and doesn’t have the Starbucks name. Check out their site for details and a video.

Coffe at Free Trade Zone

3eedkum embarak ya jama3a w ayyamkum sa3eeda.

I’m at the Starbucks FTZ, and the weather is super super nice. I advice everyone to go outdoors and enjoy the weather while it lasts.

Coffee Republic rocks

I went to Coffee Republic today for an after fe6oor latte and frappa, they were both great. And they had the cuttest small mint boxes. I couldn’t stop myself from taking pictures of them.

We had two Carmel macchiatos, two after mints, and a bottle of still water for KD 5. I think it’s a lot cheaper than StarBucks. The Macchiato was delicious. We then had a chocolate chip frappa.

Aren’t those lips adorable?

A regular non-ramadan morning

I used to love going to Marina Mall early in the morning, to enjoy a fresh cup of coffee looking out into Kuwait’s beautiful shoreline. This is one of the few things that I actually miss when Ramadan is here. Almost all other times, I just love Ramadan, even when I’m starving and thirsty like I am right now!

Where to feed your friends when they Visit Kuwait

We all have GCC and Arab friends that come visit us for a few days. We try to make them come during the wonderful months between November and March, in an attempt to deceive them about our devilishly hot weather.

If you’re like me, I don’t mind having them come visit during the summer months. I like the sea, enjoy the beach, and love water activities. Therefore, it goes without saying that if anyone visits me in the summer; be sure we’ll be spending most of out time in chale. Only problem is the unpredictable dusty weather. That would be the only thing stopping us from having a good beach\sea time. (Insert an sincere apology for my Saudi friends whom witnessed 3 full days AND nights of dust last week,, sorry girls, so so sorry).

Anyways. There are a few places, i.e. food stuffing places, that every visitor asks to go to:

  • We have to start the day with Breakfast at the Early Bird Cafe (have no clue why, even though I’m gonna head there after this post to have breakfast and Coffee).
  • Go for dinner at the ever so trendy Slider Station or the recently opened Open Flame Kitchen.
  • Enjoy the view at Marina Crescent and Marina Waves.
  • Have a late Lebanese lunch, after swimming, at Al-Mijana in Al-Koot Mall.
  • Have a very late night Milk shake and apple pie ala mode in Johnny RocketsManshar Mall.
  • Enjoy an early evening snack and dessert at Chocolate Macaroon in Jlai3a.
  • Now if your friends are shway classy or pertinacious, then you obviously have to take them for breakfast at Dean And Deloca in Avenues.
  • Enjoy a cup-a-joe at Starbucks Free Trade Zone, and just watch all the cool bikers with their cool bikes. What a sight.

Bon appetit, mes amis…
