Happy Easter to Everyone!! I cannot believe it’s been so long since I visited myself over here. Last couple of weeks have been crazy from travelling to live concerts to Spring break and then stressing over my son’s results (Yipeeeee). All in all it’s been a crazy week – of course not to forget the festive season of playing with colours and water fights “Holi” and Easter egg Hunts in the park…  Family Bdays, breakfast mornings, movie nights – a lots of fun and too little time ..

Amongst all this I finally received my Bamboo case for iPhone 5 after about approx. 10 weeks. But it was totally worth the wait and I love it. This is the second time for me to place an order with them and I am so thrilled. Normally it takes lesser time however mine had to be customized hence the delay… They have some very unique designs and all of them are hand made.

Look what i got

love the packing

love it!

Pizzeria Amami

March 13, 2013  |  Rants and Raves  |  No Comments

Well the weekend is almost here and you must go and try the new Pizzeria “Amami”..

Recently they had a soft opening and I went there with my son. I just loved the ambience, the music and the lighting effect in the restaurant. And what was even more interesting is that all the staff are Italians, from the Chefs, the Manager and even the server … so you get a complete authentic feel as if you were in Italy…

The unique thing about this place is that apart from they set menu, they stick to the real meaning of Pizzeria, which is recognized round shape, made to order, fresh vegetables (everything from potatoes, zucchini, melezane (eggplant), bell peppers etc and cooked in a Traditional Wood Fired Oven.

Amami 1 (9.5) Amami 1 (10) Amami 1 (11) Amami 1 (11.5)Since my son loves pizzas, I suppose normally all kids do, he ordered the MARGHERITA (Pomodoro, mozzarella) and i ordered the ORTOLANA (with lots of char grilled fresh vegetables) the Chef then treated us to this delicious Tiramisu. Apart from pizzas they serve Pastas, Calzone and Focaccia also.

Just to help you guys out – they are located in Salmiya, on Salem Al Mubarak St, behind Olympia Mall.

Oh! btw – if you want to start learning Italian – do it now… with Amami which means “Love me”..

Ironic?

Prayer of Forgiveness

March 4, 2013  |  Reads  |  No Comments

The tears I shed, I forgive.
The suffering and disappointments, I forgive.
The betrayals and lies, I forgive.
The slandering and scheming, I forgive.
The hatred and persecution, I forgive.
The punches that were given, I forgive.
The shattered dreams, I forgive.
The dead hopes, I forgive.
The disaffection and jealousy, I forgive.
The indifference and ill will, I forgive.
The injustice in the name of justice, I forgive.
The anger and mistreatment, I forgive.
The neglect and oblivion, I forgive.
The world with all its evil, I forgive.

Grief and resentment, I replace with understanding and agreement.
Revolt, I replace with music that comes from my violin.
Pain I replace with oblivion.
Revenge, I replace with victory.
I will be able to love above all discontentment.
To give even when I am stripped of everything.
To work happily even when I find myself in the midst of all obstacles.
To dry tears even when I am still crying.
To believe even when I am discredited.
