Cupons in Lulu | Cupones de descuento en Lulu Market

What kind of cupon is this? I got it las 23 of  February after doing my groceries and when I started to read it I couldnt believe it. Whats the offer? what is a Wagon R b Sho Trly? From today to today? now that I am leaving the supermarket... no no no, this is not an offer at all. Nice try Lulu, but next time make it clearer!

¿Que clase de oferta de Lulu market os parece que es esta? No esta claro el producto y es de hoy para hoy, buen intento pero así no vamos bien Lulu Market.


Fresh Anar, healthy choice for your breakfast



I found a sort of Queso de Burgos in the supermaket, its very low in grease, you can see in the picture that ir didnt melt. Perfect for dieting

He encontrado un queso tipo de Burgos, no se funde y es sosito por lo que creo que es perfecto para dietas. Yo lo tuesto en una sartén y lo como sobre pan de espelta que hago en casa. (Sigo gorda así que no es la única solución..... pero bueno  )

4kd el kilo de Pechugas de pollo!!!!!!!!!

Ando un tanto despistada con los precios pero hay cosas que todavía me sorprenden. Dentro de mi compra semanal siempre me toca comprar mucho pollo, como sabéis no hay cerdo por estos lares así que el menú de cada día se resume a pollo, un día carne y otro pescado (si por mi fuera todos los días pescado pero con tres niños protestones es bastante difícil)
Bueno, al grano que siempre me enrollo mucho. Pues resulta que las pechugas de pollo están a 4.2 kd el kilo o lo que es lo mismo 12,6 euros, lo que me parece una burrada ¿alguien puede contarme a cuanto pagan las pechugas en la ciudad donde se encuentran? mera curiosidad.




I may seem crazy but I can´t believe the kilo of chicken breast is now for 4.2kd, almost 13 euro!!!!. Prices are rising at an unbeliveable speed, how much do you pay in your countries? mere curiosity

KIngdom of Bahrain with Ghadeer and Fay Part 2

After visiting the National Museum of the Kingdom of Bahrain, that I already told you that it is incredible, we went to one of the most nicest restaurants we have been in this visit. It's called "Villa Mama" and it belongs to a Bahraini lady that cooks the typical food of her country with a twist of modernity. The place was crowded and luckily we contacted her through her Instagram account @villamama and we were able to book a table. The food was delicious!!! too sugary the juices ,next time mafi sugar! and incredible cakes. Another "must" in your visit to Bahrain but the pity is that it is a little far from everything. Some extra tips, expensive and dry restaurant * no alcohol.

 Villa Mama, with its cosy decoration and fantastic food


After that we needed a break and we rested at the hotel that has fantastic views of the sunset and the we got ready for "La Fontain" a splendid old building for multipurpose. A Gallery, a spa, many ballrooms for different events and a fantastic restaurant. The food was not my favorite but the ambience was fantastic for a dinner date with friends.


La Fontaine, nice place for a visit and a romantic dinner.


Masso, impossible with out booking
Woke up in the morning, light breakfast and quick visit to the supermarket in the Amwaj area for some pork/souvenirs. Very good prices, by the way.
Brunch at "Masso" the coolest place in Bahrain. Only weekends for brunch but breakfast, lunch and dinners everyday of the week. Don't forget to make a reservation if you are a big group. The food was also amazing, the place nicely decorated and clean, the service incredibly good educated (didnt hear one single sir/madam) and all you can eat or drink included (I took Champain all over the meal)
And after that quickly to the airport, my Gulf Air plane was waiting for me.
Last thing, I can not say enough times thank you to my dear Ghadeer that invited me to have this wonderful experience, she was not only my friend but also the best guide in the city. I will never be able to thank you enough. Also many kisses to lovely Fay who made the weekend a peaceful experience. She is full of all this calm that I have a lack of. I love you both.


The three of us! Love you girls!!

Kingdom of Bahrain with Ghadeer and Fay Part 1

Bahrain here we go!


Last weekend was holiday in Kuwait, National and Liberation Day... Not much to do but sit at home watching tv o playing video games with the kids, thats why when Ghadeer invited me to go for a quick break to Bahrain I couldnt say no.

We stayed at the new hotel Art Rotana at Amwaj Island, not far from the airport. The hotel is new and its a fantastic place to go with family and Friends. It has a long beach and two Swimming pools to enjoy during the day (the time for the daylight is the same as in Kuwait, by 5.45 pm it starts to get dark).

The hotel has a bar where you can take some drinks but be aware because it was full of Saudis and other nationalities and its just a lounge, not a place where to celebrate parties. The rooms are big and comfortable and breakfast ok!, I always eat the same in this places, my Brown toasts with olive oil, but if you love salad, eggs or sweets there you´ll find everything.


Street art Adliya
The first day we decided to go to the Adliya área, cool área full of nice restaurants, I´ve heard that a Kuwaiti guy living in Bahrain owns all the area and he really did a good work. There is art every where and a good spot where to charge batteries. We stoped at Café Italia. Nice, clean, good food and good drinks but a Little expensive. after that we went to Al Muharrak, the souk of Bahrain to take a look at the old constructions, a couple of nice places and a tea at a classic in the souq, and then some beers at the restaurant mall just infront of our hotel.... Back for a rest because we needed it.
Street Adliya




Cafetería and Gallery in Adliya

Yes, We love Bahrain!










Early breakfast (toast and coffee) at the hotel and a must in your visit to Bahrain: one of their old forts that was renovated a couple of years ago and of course the National Museum, fantastic Building in a super big área infront of the sea.

Cinemagic Kuwait Schedule for March 2015


Raul (Skount) Garcia exhibición

"Visual Therapy presents "Projections: Searching," an exhibition by Spanish artist Skount opening at 6pm on Monday 9 March 2015 at AlMakan.

"Projections: Searching" brings together new artworks by Spanish artist Raul "Skount" Garcia Periera in an exhibition inspired by the study of psychological projection. For the first time, Skount will showcase photography along with 11 new works and a short film.

Skount's early encounters with Spanish theater inspired the exploration of the mask in his artworks as a metaphor and transformative element. Historically, the mask served as a ritualistic object of both disguise and protection. Over time, the mask began to take on a more symbolic role, manifesting certain aspects of our true self, while concealing our fears and desires.

Skount's fascination with the mask is further explored within this exhibition.

Although the mask conceals one's features, it also creates and reveals new qualities, which also remain hidden. The projection of these inner feelings creates narratives of self-identity within Skount's work challenging the dichotomy of self and identity."
