Last Friday Morning…

On Thursday night, my flatmates (1 guy and 2 gals) and I planned to go out on Friday morning just for breakfast, spend time by the sea and a little bit of road trip. I was skeptical about the plan because first, one of the girls is on graveyard shift, she’d definitely want to sleep once she comes home at around 6:30 AM. Next, the guy and the other girl would prefer to sleep on Friday morning rather than go out. And as for me, I don’t want to go to the sea. It’s definitely not my kind of thing.

Surprisingly, among us three at home that morning, I was the first to wake up. After half an hour or so, I’m still the only one awake and definitely ready to go out. Guess I was excited after all. 🙂

The gal who’s on a graveyard shift texted me and was asking if we’re ready because we have to pick her up at 6. So I tried calling the other two coz I don’t want to knock on their doors. So the guy woke up but the other gal decided not to go. And so the guy and I drove our way to the airport after some time to pick-up the other. And we got lost! Our home is very near the airport and we could have reached it in 5 minutes but instead arrived there more or less an hour late. But our roommate didn’t seem to mind because she even bought for us these delicious cinnamon rolls.

And so off we go for a place to eat.

We ended up here…

We had breakfast at Prime & Toast. It’s the only one we saw open at the time so we didn’t have a choice and our tummies are growling already.

Afterwards, we went inside the Movenpick Hotel and had a view of the sea from there. I was thankful for the really hot weather at the time because my flatmates gave up on going to the seaside! 🙂

Afterwards, we drove for a few more minutes and went back home because it’s becoming scorchingly hot again. Temperatures here in Kuwait these days is still between 42°C – 48°C though it feels hotter than that.

Anyhow, it was a wonderful Friday morning with my flatmates. I don’t normally go out on Friday mornings because I prefer spending it in the comfort of my bed but it’s nice doing something else once in a while.

A Reason for Everything

remember these words. let them fill your mind and soak into your thoughts. there is a reason for everything.:

Found this and thought it would be nice to share to everyone. Everything happens for a reason. 

Happy weekend, homo sapiens! 

To-read

I was trying to arrange my books earlier and here’s my to-read shelf. (I overlooked A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I’ve read it already and it’s a very good book.) IMG_7500

Thai Food Thursdate

I love Thursdates! Yes, Thursday dates with anyone (it really doesn’t matter with whom) as long as we have interesting conversations and good food, it is just good enough! Better if we can share a drink or two, but since I’m in Kuwait, that’s hopeless. So whatever we lack for drinks/alcohol, we just try to make it up on food and stories to share with each other.

So today’s Thursdate is with my friend (you know who you are) who just came back from vacation and yeah, Happy 1st Year Wedding Anniversary to you and your husband! We went to Sabaidee Thai Restaurant in Salmiya. Sabaidee in Thai means be well or be fine.

It’s just a small restaurant with only two or three staffs I think but that didn’t matter because we definitely enjoyed the food. There were a lot of food to choose from in their menu and we opted for these few:

Gai (chicken) satay

Peek Gai Tod (deep-fried chicken wings, Thai style)

Khai Luk Khaei (fried hard-boiled eggs with tamarind sauce)

Flat rice noodles with seafood

Pad thai (Stir-fried noodles - with seafood)

All the dishes tasted very good and the servings were more than enough at very reasonable prices.

So if you happen to be in the mood for some delicious Thai food, you can check it out. I personally recommend their branch in Salmiya because I haven’t visited the other branches yet. You can also check out their website here.

Happy weekend!

Woohoo! It’s Thursday and it’s time to wrap up the week again! (Weekend here is Friday & Saturday.)

It was pretty much a boring week for me so I’m really looking forward to a productive weekend but I have no idea what to do, haha! Except for the usual Inday duties. 🙂 Do you have special plans? Please feel free to write your weekend plans in the comments section.

Happy weekend! 🙂
