Just read it!

YasminFarmEarly morning of last Friday I drove down to AlWafrah Farms. I knew there is a special Farmers Market organized every weekend.  It was my first visit to Yasmin Farm owned by AlBan Dairy and couple of investors. Well, it was really late when I reached the farm as I got lost during my way. I used Google Maps and my car navigation GPS till I lastly reached the farm.

However, I entered the farm and parked my car in the parking permit area of the farm. Guests mostly welcome to have a tour in the farm. Therefore, I paid 1KD/per person for our tour inside the farm. Myself and my family members went inside the golf car with a tour guide to the main factory area.

The farm attractions are AlBan Dairy Factory, Cows, Sheep, Goats, Vegetables and Fruits.

FarmersMarketOn the way out guests can buy Yasmin Farm products from Yasmin’s Store. Different products are available such as vegetables, fruits, diaries, Honey, Spices and Olives. I enjoyed the visiting the farm, but got stressed of driving down to the farms and getting lost for hours. Don’t get stuck from what I experienced.

To reach the farm go to Google maps on your smart-phone and type your destination to Yasmin Farm [map].

Chanel innovated in Paris Fashion Week Show by transforming the runway into supermarket. Chanel Shopping Center provided the backdrop for Chanel’s 2014/15 Fall-Winter Ready-To-Wear collection. The sprawling supermarket, constructed for the occasion beneath the glass roof of the Grand Palais, made for a tongue-in-cheek setting that evoked the consumerist culture imagery of Pop Art as well as the concept of easy everyday luxury. More than 3,400 guests browsed shelves stocked with goods renamed and packaged especially for the show Chanel-branded beverages, groceries, fresh produce and home improvement supplies – before taking their seats as the 79 models began their sweep through the aisles. As well, all the food and products are  donated to charities.

Karl Lagerfeld’s collection resonates with his resolutely modern take on the Chanel vocabulary, electrified by a distinctly urban vibe. Sneakers are the footwear of choice, paired with blazers, dresses and coats, and in knee-high lace-up boot hybrids; the models, freed from heels, had a definite spring in their step.

I really find it interesting to use Supermarket theme to promote their products at Paris Fashion Week Show.

DietCareNewMenuLast month I tried a trial period of Diet Care new menu lunch dishes.  Diet Care is a healthy centre that  serves a great variety of healthy food delivered to your home.

DietCareKuwaitHere what I had for lunch from Day 1 till Day 5:

Day 1 Lunch: Spaghetti with Meatballs, Caesar Salad and Broccoli Soup.

Day 2 Lunch: Chicken Beryani, Persian Yogurt Salad, Chocolate balls.

Day 3 Lunch: Chicken with cheese mushroom sauce, potato, pomelo mango salad and greek potato salad.

Day 4 Lunch: Fish hamour, Caesar Salad and Soup.

Day 5 Lunch: Chicken Shish Taouk with rice, Persian Yogurt Salad and Strawberry Cake.

DietCareFoodRegarding their food tastes it is quite good. But I disliked the fish hamour dish because it was exhale with fish smell and not cooked well. Otherwise all the other meals are fine. I also liked diet care desserts they are tasty and delicious to have after your meal. Having a 600Cal lunch everyday is healthy and great management to manage our daily calories.

IloveKWOn my way to Sharq last night. I saw a beautiful red sign “I Love KW” similar to the one in New York City Love sign placed at the main entrance of AlHamra Tower. What a great idea and I think it is the best place to snapshot your photo beside the sign.

KWTNationalKuwait Celebrates the National Day (25 of February) and the Libration Day (26 of February). It is a long holiday this time starting from today night till Saturday night. Most of the people are spending their holiday by traveling, going to chalet or camping. I’m spending the next five days in Khairan with my family.

Happy Kuwait National and Libration Day!

KuwaitNationalDayIt looks like this year the most decorated year of celebrating Kuwait National and Libration day. The LED lights and decorations all around Kuwait areas, homes, companies and streets inspired me. I really love them to be kept for all the year and not only for February only.
