Quick Inspection in Fahaheel by Al Daman

I'm a little late on this discovery but I did see it a few days ago and renewed by vehicle registration yesterday. I was dreading the process in Jabriya, especially in this heat so I was happy to see this place. For women it's extremely easy, you walk in with your CID and registration and someone will take your documents to be processed while you sit in the small waiting are for females. He will come and ask for your number and the cash for the process, if you don't have cash there's an ATM close to the door which is very convenient.

Once the process is completed you will follow the guy to your car and leave out the back, so quick and easy!

I guess the building has been there for a while and it's right beside my car wash place I've been going to for 11 years. I never noticed it before, I guess that's what I get for making a bee line dash to get out of that area.

Archery in Kuwait

Have you ever wanted to be like Robin Hood or just want to do something different? The Kuwait shooting club building now includes archery, which opened around six months ago and hasn't caught on yet but after giving it a try I am hooked and want to try again as soon as I have time.

 My first shot was a bulls eye, it was all downhill after that

It was 10 KD for I think 18 arrows? There are guys there who will teach how to do it but it will take practice!

Don't forget your guns!

Not bad for shooting a gun for the second time in my life. The guns start off at 6 KD depending on the model.

Sadu Weaving Course

Sadu house brings you their awesome Sadu weaving course, I've always wanted to try it but I don't know if my back can take it. You have to sit on the floor in front of the weaving machine. I took a doll making course with my daughters and it was really nice. I love Sadu house!

Life in Kuwait Blog #39 on the list of Top 100 Middle East Blogs

I received an email about my blog being included on the Top 100 Middle East Blogs from Feedspot, I  guess that's cool even though I don't really know how they determine the winners. Thanks Feedspot! You can find the complete list here. The n/a is for Facebook and Twitter, I have a FB page and thought about using Twitter but it's difficult to focus when you have to take pictures for Snap, the blog and Instagram and I have no idea how to use Twitter. I don't think my life is cool enough for all of those platforms.

Extreme shakes from TGI Fridays

I saw this on IG and took the kids to try it out. After finishing our lunch we ordered the chocolate shake. It took 15 mins to prepare and when they brought it to the table it was a a huge dessert.

They tried their best to make it the same as the picture but the whip cream had melted and the brownie bite was inedible, the shake itself was pretty good but it was a one time thing. They had another flavor that had bacon with chocolate included with the shake. I'm still looking for these types of shakes so if anyone has one in mind do let me know.

Thrifty M.E. - Thrift store in Mahboula

I found this place on Instagram and thought I would stop by. After volunteering with Operation Hope for so long I really miss thrift shopping. It's in a little space of a building where the haris has a key and he takes the money and gives you a receipt. I kind of thought I would meet some American lady who would show me around but it wasn't like that.

There are clothes, shoes and some really expensive purses. I get it, they're LV but it's still a thrift shop unless they are consignment then I would understand but 195KD for a used purse is a lot. Some clothing items were 20KD while others were 3KD.

They have pictures on their IG @thriftymekw where you can also find their location. I did pick up some items as I support charity businesses. I will keep watching for more bargains.
