Young Kuwaiti Classical concert in Dar Al-Athar

I went yesterday to the Young Kuwaiti Classical concert that was held in Dar Al-Athar in Maidan Hawalli. It was actually my first time in Dar Al-Athar. It is a small building located inside Abdulla Al-Salem school. I really liked the place, there is this boutique that sells eastern and oriental accessories, books, gadgets, and those nice useless expensive things that you buy and don’t know where to place them later on. I got myself a really nice notebook and a book called “Islam and Romantic Orientalism” which I can’t wait to read!

The concert started at 7 sharp (which was amazing as I don’t recall any event here in Kuwait that ever started on time.) and ended exactly at 8. It was an hour of amusement and serenity. Little Lolwa Al-Shamlan played beautiful pieces in the Piano followed by the talented Faisal Al-Buhairy who did Solos on the Piano and other notes with the Loyac Music team and other musicians.

I really enjoyed my evening yesterday.

For more information about the up coming events in Al- Dar Museum, you can check their website or like them on facebook.

Bloggers union second meetup

It was my first time at bloggers’ union, so I didn’t know what to expect! But I could feel from the moment I walked in the warm, cozy, and friendly atmosphere that meetings usually lack.

The meeting was taking place at the Movenpick royal suits building in Free trade zone. It was noon so the sun was sneaking throughout the windows and the whole room was peachy colored =D

We were welcomed by His who introduced Lana AL Rasheed, the Director of Marketing and sales in the Royal Suites Building, who was nice enough to open the doors for any up coming meetings!

Then it was Q8stig turn to update us with a new, nice raw idea that I will update you with soon!

And of course no one leaves without eating =D

Mama Pamela’s Juice, yummy yummy

Pastries from Kiwi

and again, no one leaves without eating Gelato Italiano’s ice cream =D (I did, I had a late lunch after that with friends and didn’t want to ruin it =/ )

Oh and Pick Yo frozen yogurt!

I really enjoyed everything, the place, the people, the food, and of course the creative chatting screen created by the wonderful organizers. All the bloggers were able to chat using their phones or tablets.

Then there was this lovely contest between bloggers through asking specific questions about Kuwait blogs, which I barely answered few (ok that’s embarrassing) and then there was a raffle which BlogLaish were lucky enough to win a blackberry =D Congratulations!

In a nutshell it was such a lovely gathering! And I didn’t take many good pictures. Since I was too lazy to do so, some of the pictures above are taken from Froyonation & 7ajidude you may want to check their lovely posts out.

Many thanks to His, Q8stig, Omarker & Botamba for all the effort they put in this event to be just perfect! And of course to the lovely food providers  Kiwi Bakery, Crunchy , Mama Pamela’s Juice & Gilato Italiano.

Looking forward to the next meeting =D
