I will live without regret.
I will embrace my gorgeousness, my magnetism, my
magnificence, my effervescence.

and inspire me to go higher.
I will listen to great music and I will sing.
I will continue to learn.
I will practice yoga.

I will let myself be happy.
I will have faith in the order or the world and
I will stake my place in it.
Because no one can do this for me.
I must do this for me.
I am for me...others will follow.
A Mantra is something you keep repeating to yourself until you believe it..got any of your own you'd like to add to the above?

Weighing the Issue
Recently, I've lost the stubborn pounds that have been hanging on to my body for quite some time. The funny thing is, I was making the least effort. How you say? It's simple. At the tragic moments that I date someone (Oh my God, I'm so in love and we're going to live happily ever after), to my horror, I notice that I'm putting on weight! Frantically, I start my diet, go the gym religiously and then finally look at myself in the mirror and see nothing happening.
The moment I break up with the (oh my God, he's such a jerk!) candidate and fast forward one week with not a moment spent at the gym, I lose the extra pounds!
I've become so convinced of this diet that I now find myself preferring to stay thin than get myself involved with someone who's just going to make me fat! Thank you very much!
How about you? What's your weight style?

Wishing and Hoping....and Dreaming.....
Have you lost hope in Love? Did you ever believe in it in the first place? If not, why not? Where you born not believing in it or did someone go out of his/her way to make you stop believing in love?
Would you ever marry a marriage of convenience? Can you wake up in the morning knowing that you don't love the person sleeping next to you? Have the crazy stories of failed love in Kuwait made you believe that love no longer exists?
Are men and women in Kuwait so bitter towards each other that the ugly head of vengeance leaves no hope for love? If mind is over matter and the loss of belief in love is everywhere, does love even have the chance to exist?
Realistically, when you wake up in morning on a sunny day in Kuwait, do you think today I might fall in love or are you one of those who bitterly sits at Marina Mall bitching about the opposite sex with not an ounce of ra7ma in your heart?
Did the battle between Love and Hate in Kuwait mean that Love has lost the war?
Al Arabiya news: Death of a four year old girl because of female circumcision in Sudan. They showed her picture and said that she was chopped not only externally, but internally too.
I know this issue is not new, but seeing her picture really affected me. I searched for this news online for posting but found nothing, maybe by tomorrow's news? Anyway, check out these links I found on the topic:
Definition and types of female circumcision
A specialist midwife's view who offers support
Oh and while searching for news, I found this <click>
P.S. it's in arabic.
Special thanks for my friend who loves Kuwait.

Blood Test Before Marriage
This blood test is an obligation in some Arab countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Bahrain. Do you think it should be forced in Kuwait too?
I think that forcing it would save the woman from the big request, the man from humiliation, and marriage from diseases.

I saw this movie and I loved it. The story is romantic (read the summery below) and starts with an arranged marriage which for the first time :P gave me a good feeling about such marriages ;p
Here's a summery I got from <this link>
Blue-tinted, eye-ball-popping, maggot-infested beauty Emily (Bonham Carter) has become known as the Corpse Bride after waiting for her fiancé where the couple planned to rendezvous before getting hitched. When her groom arrives, he kills her, and she rests in the ground to wait for her soul mate, whether he knows he is the Corpse Bride's groom or not. It's a cold dark night, the moon is full, the stars are bright and the forest is a little bit creepy. Wandering through the black mangled trees, Victor (Depp) just can't memorize his wedding vows. Victor's hesitance towards marriage causes him to jumble the words. Two prominent families have arranged their children to be married in order to overcome financial difficulties. As the objects of betrothal, Victor and Victoria (Watson) met for the first time the night before their wedding. It only makes sense that Victor, a groom with cold feet, would have trouble remembering tedious wedding vows. Thus Victor ends up in the dark forest ringing his hands and muttering his vows, the vows that the Corpse Bride hears, bringing her out of the grave. Victor suddenly finds himself married to another woman, a voluptuous bombshell bride who also happens to be dead. Whisked away to the Land of the Dead, Victor finds out that living amongst corpses is not as easy as it seems. Heads easily loose their owners and eyes never seem to stay in their sockets, an adjustment that Victor seems reluctant to accept. Once taken into the Land of the Dead, it is nearly impossible to return, causing Victor to choose between risking Victoria's life or giving up his own.

Mother in Law Dilemma
Would you marry an only child?
Would you marry an only child whose mom passed away?
Would you marry a man who wants to live with his mom for the rest of his life?
Do you mind living with your mother in law, always?
Or do you want your own space?
Would you risk your marriage just because you can’t take living in a shared house?
Would you agree at first hoping for the night you strangle her to death?
Or would you just give in for the sake of your man?
Or would you just set your rules and never fall for a man only if he has his own place?
Don’t tell me his mom is an angel. Living in the same house would eventually cause friction. Would you risk it?

Triple W's to Happiness
Women are being really sensitive recently I thought it was only with me (in my own head) but now I noticed that its being a universal thing, Women are trying to survive in their relationships, hardly focusing.
Sex factor newsletter are working on this issue and psychologically solving female life complicity called what "what women wants", solving all kind of issues female fight for and complain about ;) (Don’t worry women we don’t complain : P )
This is a little example take a look I loved the way the explained how much effort it should be done in little things that we don’t really think they need that much offer. I believe this is really tiring it would even take the whole idea out of my head, even this you need to work on? Mako facha! mako ra7a! ( . Thinking about it actually its not that much effort it's like buying a matching tank top to your new outfit (that’s why I hate shopping).
Enjoy. And let us know what do you think?

How Low Will You Go?
With all those Ramadan episodes full of deception and betrayal, I was wondering how far a woman would go when she finds out that she's been betrayed.
I recall a true story when a girl caught her then boyfriend with another girl. She picked up the first brick on the ground and slammed it right into the front window of his car. Nobody got hurt but I couldn't say that about his car and a fancy, sports car it was or used to be in this case. Then there was this other girl who faced the same circumstances and ended up heading straight to the "other" girl and soon it was a cat fight much to the man's joy. Ugh!
So the question is, when it comes to betrayal from the love of your life, how low would you go?

My First Post as a Member of the Kuwait Single Girls Society
Yay! I'm so happy to be part of the team, I feel so special! I'm part of the 'In crowd' as MissCosmo put it. Thank you girls for inviting me to join.
Big kiss for: Flamingoliya, Blossom, LittleBig, MissCosmoKuwait, Shopaholic Q8eya, Sloth, Spontaneousnessity and Salted-Caramel!
My post is inspired by the sweet Papillona's post about Guilt & Regret. This question is going to be more focused on relationship's and relationship doodee's to be more specific. I'm sure most of us have gotten ourselves involved in relationships lacking in affection and aspiration, while the other party feels the exact opposite. It is a very sticky situation to get yourself into, and you end up contemplating the different strategies of rejection. Be gentle? Or be truthful about the whole matter? You could always take the easy route and be deceitful by hiding behind juvenile excuses you know are inexcusable. Another approach could be the cruel tough guy/girl act. This is where you push yourself to be as brutal and nasty as possible, in the weak attempt to push the person into hating you and just moving on. I call this the 3abdel 7aleem Method (remember Ma3bodat ilJamaheer?) There are many other methods of destruction that I can think of, but I'd like to hear your views on this matter. That said, my question is obvious.
What is your strategy?
What is the worst you have done to end a relationship and why?
Hehe it turns out they are more than one question, but you'll forgive me I know :)

When it comes to being SKF (Single Kuwaiti Females) which one of the following attitudes should one follow:
(1) One day my Prince will show up on a white horse and I'm going to concentrate really hard in my own imagination to make it happen...
(2) There's no such thing as a Prince with a white horse, only a dishdasha with a car and he's never going to show up anyway 'coz life sucks!
(3) I'm having a great life, going out with friends, going to the gym and doing plenty of socializing...Prince?...who needs him?
(4) Oh my God...I'm still single...call everybody and get them to set me up with anyone...I can't stand one more minute of being single!
(5) I've heard enough sad stories about marriages and divorces and I think the whole marriage concept is overrated...I say staying single is actually a blessing in disguise
(6) Sooner or later the committed phobia man will finally pop the question and I'm sticking to him till he does
(7) Men are like Persian carpets..the more you step on them..the more precious they become...and the nastier I am the more likely he'll end up marrying me
(8) The more I party with my single friends, the more likely I will bump into my soul mate
(9) The more I socialize with my Mother or married friends, the more likely I'll meet my future mother-in-law who will lead me to him
(10) The more frogs I kiss...the more likely I'll find myself kissing the Prince

When I was a kid I wished I’d become so many things when I grow up. At an early age I wished I’d become a nurse. I enjoyed playing with my medical bag toy. Lots of relatives, friends, and neighbors were injected by baby Flam. I don’t want to tell you where, you should know that since I am too shy to say it.
As the years went by, I developed other wishes like becoming an astronaut. The sad thing is that I am now none of what I wished to be.
So did you have dreams? What was your dream occupation when you were a kid? Are you now what you wanted to be?

Weaker Gender :p
A:- Only male humans consider female humans to be the weaker sex...in ACTUAL fact, females are the superior sex ....just take a look at wild animals, say, lions....the lioness does the hunting whilst the lion just stupidly eats and mates...
Q:- Why do we see that gals often dresses in guys dressing like pants, etc and not visa-versa..?
A:- Because we gals are not afraid to try anything, unlike the other sex!
Q:- Why do ladies usually cry during a wedding...?
A:- Cos she suddenly realized that she's stuck with the ... beside her for the next 50 years or so..... Boo ! Hoo ! Hoo !
Q:- Why do guys gives flowers to girls....?
A:- Because guys are too cheap to give their girls diamonds or even cold hard cash.... and the worse thing is that some may foolishly believe the florist's claim that flowers are supposedly romantic !

Police.. But Also Human..
Do you consider police friend or foe? I said our police were creatures with issues, I mean it, I think they should go through a psychological test before they give them the tickets book, I have suffered a alot of times for no reason and I remember one particularly pulled me over because I gave signal switched lanes for no reason, according to him I should change lanes ONLY FOR EMERGENCY! I still remember his name E. S. Z. I'll never forget such a scumbbag, then I ran into this!! and I was like .. we should have even if only 20 of these in our police or guard force I'd be grateful!!
Talk about difference huh!! =~}

Sometimes I don’t like an item much, but the salesperson who happens to look gorgeous tries to convince me that the thing looks beautiful on me.
Do you fall for that?
Have you ever bought something just because the salesperson is gorgeous?
Have you ever reassured yourself that your friends' opposing opinion doesn’t matter as long as the gorgeous salesperson thinks it look nice on you?
Do you think they mean it when they praise you?

What? How? Why?
It took him a month to work out that he could play it at night too.
Why did the totally stupid man stand in front of a window during a thunderstorm?
So that he could take photos without using the flash.
Why did the totally stupid man stare at the can of frozen orange juice?
Because it said “concentrate”.
1. If a totally stupid man is going to London on a plane, how can you steal his window seat?
2. What do you call ten totally stupid men standing ear to ear?
3. How do you keep a totally stupid man busy?
What Nationality Were Adam and Eve?
A Briton, a Frenchman and a Russian are viewing a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden.
"Look at their reserve, their calm," muses the Brit. "They must be British."
"Nonsense," the Frenchman disagrees. "They're naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French."
"No clothes, no shelter," the Russian points out, "they have only an apple to eat, and they're being told this is paradise. They are Russian."

Fat Fat Fat
This morning, the weighing scale showed that I've lost a total of 1.5 kg since the first week of August. So what does that tell you? CHEATING IS GOOD? Not really.
I suppose taking the stairs, jogging a lot and aerobics exercises I've been doing is working great!
I need to lose another 5kg by end of September, I don't really 'need' to but I want to lose 5 kg, especially that in Ramadan I can't help but gain weight I should really have self-control and avoid Ramadan gatherings (aka ghabga) and that's another issue I could write a whole post about but now I want to concentrate on how I can lose 5 by the end of september?
any ideas? ladies and gents..

To Babysit Or Not To Babysit!
okay this one is dedicated to the ones who got stuck with babysitting :) specially to Sarah and her lil dude since she's been suffering the most! hehe it's worth a try and if it doesn't work with him it'll defiantly work for you! enjoy what's left of it ;)
Friday, August 05, 2005
Who said Babies are Angels?
I had enough! .. 3 days of babysitting and I'm going insane!!!
I'm not used to this kind of life.. I feel selfless!! My life was ALL about ME!!! but NOW, it's all about him! It's all about the baby!
He watches cartoons all the day and when he gets bored, he cries and wants me to dance and sing to him, otherwise he wouldn't stop screaming, so I have no choice. I hate it when babies cry, especially in the middle of the night. It is pretty frustrating to deal with a one-year-old baby.. He can not talk so how would I know what he wants or how he feels or if anything hurts him!!! How can one communicate with a baby? This is too hard.
So this is the third day I think he misses his mom. He keeps biting me, pinching and punching. you should see the marks he gave me. I didn't sleep well.. Excellent!
Today I realized something, I want my single life back I want to go out whenever I want without worrying about my lil-Dude.. without feeling guilty that I left him home.. This is one tough lesson, I learnt I don't want to have a baby, atleast not anytime soon. I also learnt that being a mother is the hardest job ever! EVER! I mean it! I totally mean it!!
conclusion: this job is disappointingly unsuccessful, I don't think I'm doing good at all. 4 days left.. (allah yastir)
Baby sitting for one day.. or should I say for a few hours?
I like babies but only when they are clean, fed, and well dressed. There are times when I have to baby sit my nephew. I miss him when he’s not around but when he’s here under my supervision, I don’t miss him that much. I mean, he needs constant supervision. I can’t do anything else without watching him. He may fall, he may touch my stuff and break them. So I found helpful tools to occupy him. I am not proud of them as I know that I should be more of an aunty but they help.
When I’m exercising in the living room, I let him watch Telly Tubbies. I hate them and never liked them in fact I detest them. But guess what? They are handy at such times. When I turn the video on, he sits still on the couch and gets hypnotized.
The times I’m in my bedroom blogging. Some links help too like:
He loves old Mcdonalds a lot. I’m ok with this song cos it reminds me of my childhood, Telly Tubbies don’t.
Here’s a list of baby songs with their lyrics
I think Telly Tubbies are stupid. All what my baby learned is saying ba-bye and to laugh the way the sun-kid laughs. But I realized that I was just looking at it my own way. He enjoys them, so what’s the harm.
But comparing Barney to Telly Tubbies, Barney whom I also hate seems to be more educating. There are older kids who sing, jump and dance. So I recommend Barney too.
I hope these tips can help you in baby sitting.
One last tip, if you smell something awful, call his nanny. That’s when she becomes most handy.
Oh and one more thing, if the baby is a few months old, electronic rocking chairs make them dizzy and you can find them sleeping in less than five minutes.
Thank you Barney, Telly Tubbies and last but not least, Space toons for your hypnotizing help.

Once a virgin girl came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said that her father had married her to a man against her wishes. The Prophet gave her the right to repudiate the marriage.
Divorced women are also given freedom to contract a second marriage.

A good Man
I'm one of those who never believed in Mr.Perfect. I am NOT Ms.Perfect after all.. Maybe "he" really exists, but that does not mean that I'll have to look for him, He'll find me!!!.. no seriously, I am just trying to be positive, why should a woman look for Mr.Perfect??!! a woman simply needs a good man. so stop whining about it and think..
Good men are indeed all around us. We pass them on the streets, in the malls and the halls at work or anywhere else. Most we can't see because we don't know what a good man really looks like. He usually isn't flashy enough to turn our heads. But, as you mature, you realize it's better to find someone who's got your back than someone who turns your head.
A good man doesn't necessarly agree with everything you say. He doesn't just tell you what you want to hear. He doesn't show how sensitive, sweet, caring, sincere he is, sometimes he won't have to because it shows. He has his own opinions and you may clash, but he doesn't have to degrade you to prove he's right. He even admits at times to being wrong, especially if you are willing to do the same.
A good man is not going to be everything on your "checklist". He is human with weaknesses and faults mixed in with all of his wonderful, strong attributes. He needs your love and respect. He needs to feel that you don't live to "catch" him doing something wrong so you can say, "Ahha! I knew you were an asshole!!"
A good man doesn't necessarily give you an expensive birthday or Valentine's gift. He shows his love in the ways that are comfortable to him. Don't judge him by "TV standards". No one is living a fairytale for real. You'll miss out on your own fairy tale by buying into the myth that "all men are no good". It's just not true.

Every Woman Should Know
what every woman should know..
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW how to fall in love without losing herself.
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without ruining the relationship.
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW when to try harder, and when to walk away.
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW that she can't change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or "the nature of her parents".
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW that her childhood may not have been perfect, but its over.
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW what she would and wouldn't do for love or more.
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW how to live alone, even if she doesn't like it.
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW whom she can trust, whom she can't, and why she shouldn't take it personally.
- EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW what she can and can't accomplish in a day, a month and in a year.

Because I'm worth a lot
She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye and asking, "Do you really want to know?"
Reluctantly, he said "Yes."
She began to expound... "As a woman in this day and age, I am in a position to ask a man what he can do for me that I can't do for myself. I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man...or woman for that matter. I am in the position to ask, "What can you bring to the table?"
The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money.
She quickly corrected his thought and stated, "I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for perfection in every aspect of life. "
He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, and asked her to explain.
She said "I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection mentally because I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don't need a simple-minded man. I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection spiritually because I don't need to be unequally yoked... believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster. I need a man who is striving for perfection financially because I don't need a financial burden. I am looking for someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded. I am looking for someone who I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who isn't taking care of his business. I have no problem being submissive...he just has to be worthy. God made woman to be a help mate for man. I can't help a man if he can't help himself."
When she finished her spiel, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said, "You are asking a lot."
She replied, "I'm worth a lot".

Red carpet moment
The art of flirting
as you all know.. we usually go out wearing nice clothes.. sometimes u don't feel like it specially if you're going out to buy dinner.. so one glorious day .. i went with my friend at 10 pm to buy dinner and cruise around .. we were so messed up and were laughing at each others looks.. suddenly a reddish car.. with some creature inside.. came infront of our car and pulled over sideways.. (ista3rath) with his window facing us and he started blowing kisses and making funny faces .. we gazed at him.. then at each other.. and we burst into tears laughing !!!
all the cars behind us were looking at him and then us in disbelief .. pointing fingers and laughing ! ah it was really embarrassing ..
now i am sure that everyone of us had a memorable experience... will you be kind to share? :)

While all these are important in some ways, today people forget what's more important, The Real 'C's:
If a woman loves you for what you are, not for what you have, she'll stay with you through thick and thin. A lot of men fail to realise that, I think.
Any opinions, gentlemen and ladies?
