My grave lack of interest in Christmas this year recently prompted a very serious conversation between me and myself. Not out loud, though I have been known to talk to myself. “Wanna go shopping?” “Nah. It’s too hot.” “Wanna decorate and start a fire in the fireplace?” “Nah. It’s too hot.” I think I was …

Networking and small talk.

After what felt like a super long week filled with business meetings, studies, research papers and networking, I was finally able to relax a little late last night and catch up on some reading. While browsing for interesting and relevant articles about networking I came across this piece in Entrepreneur. Small talk; probably my biggest …

Happy Birthday, America! [2014]

*All rights reserved

July 4th is one of my favorite holidays and I look forward to creating some kind of little celebration every year; whether it be with friends, family, or just partaking in some public event.

Ramadan TV schedule [Jacqui — CouchAvenue re-post]

*Click image for source

Every year one of the things I really look forward to during Ramadan are the fabulous (that’s debatable) television shows. I prefer the ones that are filmed locally in Kuwait so I can say, “Hey! Look! I lived there.” or “Look, honey! There’s our favorite restaurant”. They feel more personal to me. And though I …

Ramadan Mubarak [2014]


Wishing you all a wonderful Ramadan with family and loved ones. Remember, Kuwait is an Islamic country and eating, drinking, chewing gum, or public displays of affection could result in a month in jail, a 100 KD fine, or both. Be respectful of the law and those who are fasting. We’ll be celebrating the Holy …

Ramadan is coming! [2014]

Every year around this time I get super excited about Ramadan. I always love the preparations; having dara’a made (loving the Emirati ones this year), preparing the menu, reviewing fasting times, and shopping for necessities.

The US Embassy Kuwait will be conducting a webinar to provide information to US Citizens regarding their IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and tax filing requirements.

Happy Liberation and National Day! [Kuwait – 2014]

Wishing you all a fabulous celebration, vacation, and safe travels! For the past several years it seems all the locals travel out of Kuwait during the holiday, making room for those from surrounding countries. It’s always nice to see others join in the celebration but sad that many Kuwaitis leave and don’t participate. Hopefully this …

Happy Valentine’s Day! [2014]

Every year men all over the world (or at least in countries that celebrate Valentine’s day) are running around, making plans, ordering flowers, picking up the chocolates, and purchasing jewelry. All in the name of Valentine’s Day. My husband is no exception. Our first V-Day together was still ‘honeymoon’ phase of our marriage so it …
