My family and I laughed so hard when my sister read to us this article after brunch!!

So sorry this time its going to be in Arabic so for my English reading followers I apologize I wont translate it because the cunning of the words in it can only be expressed as they are in its original written form.. but its basically about a popular Turkish " Nour " translated series into arabic that is being aired on the Arabic TV channel MBC, and it talks about the main male heroin in it and how that now Saudi girls are so taken by the Turkish man character because he is such a gentleman and how Saudi men are rough in the way they treat women.. and it was written by one of my favorite TV presenters Turki Al Dakhil..
It was written in Al Watan Newspaper today:

تركي الدخيل
مهند (مزيون) نور!
قبل أسبوعين تقريباً ذهبت إلى مقر قناة العربية لتسجيل إحدى حلقات برنامج إضاءات. كان الوقت عصراً، غير أن مدخل مقر مجموعة mbc في دبي كان ليس المدخل الذي اعتدت عليه منذ أن انتقلت المجموعة إلى دبي من لندن في عام 2001.
كانت جموع من الناس وأرتال من البشر تتجمع عند مدخل المبنى.
فتيات وفتيان وشابات وشبان تبدو على عيونهم اللهفة والترقب. أوقفت سيارتي ونزلت أحاول أن أتعرف على وجه أحد الزملاء علّه أن يساهم في تسهيل دخولي إلى مكتبي بين ازدحام الحاضرين. بعد أن انسللت بصعوبة بين المتجمهرين، علمت أنهم جاؤوا لمشاهدة نجوم المسلسل التركي (نور) الذي تعرضه مترجماً قنوات المجموعة.
رأيت في العالم العربي معجبين بنجوم، لكني لم أر شيئاً كما رأيت. مهند الشاب التركي الذي تغزلت بجماله النساء، سرق الأضواء، وكان نجم النجوم.
الحقيقة أن مهند فتح للنساء السعوديات بالذات، على اعتبار أنهن أكثر مشاهدات mbc، مجالاً للنيل من الشباب السعودي، الذين حملوا باستحقاق لقب (الضبان) بالمقارنة باللي ما يتسماش.
لقد وجدت الفتيات السعوديات في مهند رداً على عهود من سحق الشباب السعودي للفتاة السعودية، وإطلاقه تعليقات تنتقد جمالها، ليس أقلها إشارته إلى أنهن صاحبات (الركب السوداء)، وكأن الشباب ذوي ركب بيضاء تشبه ركبة مهند!
ثمة من يرى الموضوع من زاوية أخرى لا علاقة لها بالجمال، بل تركز على جفاف المشاعر لدينا، مقارنة بالإخوة الأتراك.
وهنا تأتي الرسالة التي زارت معظم الجوّالات تحمل رسالة إلى إناث السعودية مفادها: "معاً يداً بيد، حملة لمقاطعة الشباب السعودي، والمطالبة بفتح المجال للزواج بالأتراك... من شاف دموع مهند ويحيى ما رجى من هالضبان خير"!
ختاماً سأقول تعليقاً على الرسالة: أها بس! وهي كلمة زجر وردع، تعني أن جمال الثوب أن تكون رقعته منه وفيه، وسلامتكم!

The funny thing is that me my self I don't watch it but almost every body I know watch this series... including my sister who originally was the one who watches it and now my mother as well..

Did you know that May 24th was Fun Lilliy 1st post Birthday!!!!!!

I didn't even realize it till today I knew it was in May but I didn't know that it had passed... I am sorry Fun Lilliy.. actually originally the blog I opened it in Feb but I hadn't placed anything on it at that time and it was only because my friend IYM had a blog and had being enjoying posting on it the things that she finds interesting and she was telling me that I should try but I didnt know what to put.. till I placed my first post and it was because I found Uzbek songs that I wanted to share with my friends.. and that's how it all began.. Fun Lilliy has been my friend.. that I can tell anything that my hearts wants to say out to the world and that's how by her being my trusted friend she had connected me to all of you.. the people that I had lots of chats and interesting discussions and a lot of times encouragements during some difficult times.. I have neglected my fun lilliy when I was very busy but she sat there patiently waiting knowing that I will always come back and telling me that she is always there for me when I need her.. so... HAPPY BIRTHDAY FUN LILLIY!!!!!! and Thank you!!!! for all that you gave me... and forgive me for taking this long to say Happy birthday.. I know you will understand.. :) hugs and kisses...

Doctor I want your mobile phone number.. Me: Why?

I am always surprised when I get asked that question .. when did patients think they have the right to invade the privacy of the doctors personal life and think that they should have accesses to them 24/7 .. doctors are humans as well and have privet lives and families that they need to have away from their patients.. don't get me wrong I am not saying that if an emergency arises patients shouldn't have an access to a doctor but in every hospital they always have a system that there is a doctor on-call that can handle emergency situations till the next day when the specialized doctor is available and that doctor on call is the person that can decide if the situation needs a more specialized opinion that precise moment or if that can wait till morning when the patient can get to his own doctor.. all the doctors can be reached during working hours and through the hospital but being a doctor is a job like any other job and we need to be away from it as humans and have our own lives away from it like any other person.. its a very human job and very giving I know.. and we never want to lose that aspect of it and we never underestimate the needs of our patients .. but the patients also have to remember that we are human as well and we have lives to go to outside the doors of the hospital that we have to attend to as well.. so why would a patient think they have a right to invade it in the middle of the night or during dinner time with the family when its not an emergency and even if so there is a doctor already that is specialized to handle it in the hospital..

Sex and the city Movie - Official Full Trailer HD

I know the whole series by heart... word for word.. and I am not kidding :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE the series.. and I cant wait to see the Movie.. I am a little skeptical but I don't think I will be that disappointed I always enjoy the style and New York..


Fun Lilliy Cooks "Chicken Noodle Hold The Soap" from Rachael Ray

This is the recipe from Rachael Ray's Official Website:

Chicken Noodle Hold the Soup
Serves 4
Submitted by
Rachael Ray
Yum-o! Family Friendly
on 04/04/08
1 rotisserie chicken
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2-3 carrots, cut into matchsticks
4-5 ribs celery from the heart, cut into matchsticks
2 small zucchini, cut into matchsticks
Freshly ground black pepper
1 pound extra-wide egg noodles
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped (about a handful)
1/2 box frozen peas, defrosted (10 ounces)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat for the egg noodles.
Discard the skin from the chicken and remove the meat from the bones. Shred the chicken meat with your
fingers or two forks and reserve.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with the EVOO, about two turns of the pan. Add the onion,
carrots and celery to the pan and cook until the veggies begin to get tender, about 3-4 minutes. Toss the
zucchini into the pan along with some salt and freshly ground black pepper, then cook another 2-3 minutes
until all the veggies are tender.
While the veggies are cooking, drop the noodles into the boiling water and cook to al dente, according to
package directions. Drain the noodles and return them to the pot they were cooked in. Add the butter and
parsley to pot and give everything a good toss to melt the butter and coat the noodles.
Add the shredded chicken and peas to the pan with the veggies and cook until the chicken is heated
To serve, spoon some noodles into bowls and top with the chicken and veggie mixture.
This is one of many "Yum-o!" recipes – it's good and good for you. To find out more about Yum-o!,

I am a fan of her daytime talk show which airs ( KSA 18:00) on MBC 4 before I started working I love her recipes like she says "Figure Friendly" mostly Chicken and Turkey in the ingredients.. since I have been off this week.. I take small breaks when I rest my mind and I like to take it around the time of her show is on and I got this recipe out of it so I am going to try it.. it seems very healthy.. and " figure friendly" with an extra health value with the added zucchini.. will get back to you on this one...
This coming clip is actually an interview with Michael Buble on Rachael Ray, Its actually a fun interview to watch..

added: mix the pasta when done with a mix of Kenors Thyme and Vinegar use it as your seasoning.. we made this yesterday for dinner and its DELICIOUS that is if you are a Veggie fan and the other thing is I made the chicken breasts in the oven wrapped in foil seasoned only with black pepper then forked it.. its very healthy try it..

Just read this article and listen to the video..

I read this in the NYT and also listened to the video, just to tell you how still some of the new generation is still thinking with that kind of mentality..
Love’s Rules Vex and Entrance Young Saudis

Published: May 12, 2008
Young Saudis may chafe against the rules, but they often condemn mercilessly those who flout them too brazenly.

They finally opened LUSH!!

This is one of my favorite body products stores when I was in Canada.. I always buy one of their "BATH BOMBS" as a gift for my self, as a pick me up, or when I need to pamper my self and take care of my self.. I have been passing buy both stores in Tahlia Shopping Mall and also the one in Roshan Mall and they have been closed for quite a while.. its finally open again and I bought my self a BATH BOMB and two others each for both my sisters to try.. I have a gut feeling that I will get at least one of my sisters addicted to them as well.. They are so feminine these BATH BOMBS.. if you haven't tried them or your girl didn't try to get you to take a bath with one of these bombs in the water get to it.. its really romantic.. just soak in it and forget the world..
For my self I bought SAKURA

For one of my sisters I bought SEX BOMB

My other sister I bought THINK PINK because she likes Vanilla scents

and don't go economical when you use these BATH BOMBS you have to use the whole ball to really enjoy.. I know its a splurge but aren't you worth it? I know I am :)
check out also LUSH Website they have PDF files to download with tips on skin care and news regarding their products.. its interesting to brows through..

Treadmill Kittens

OMG this is soooo cute.. I love cats.. they are the best.. spoiled always and independent..

Fun Lilliy Visit to "Coach" with her new hand bag, and what else was eye catching?

It started with this bag that I needed for work last month which is a great bag its strong colorful goes well with my flowery abayah that has white and pink embroidery .. I Love this bag I even took it to Dubai last month for the Dubai Derm conference..

THIS IS MY NEW BAG!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!! its my daily hand bag I fell in love with the color Turquoise is one of my favorites it was this color or red I choose this it reminds me of the color of the sea.. Patent is in this season and so are bright colors very spring...

I had sat and debated between this bag and the one I got for quite a while but I opted for the convenience and the comfort on the above bag at the end since it will be my daily hand bag i need something that is quick and easy to get my unglass and wallet from and close securely this I couldn't close properly without a bit of a struggle with the zipper so I didn't take it..

This collection and this particular bag has become popular in Jeddah with young working women and I can understand why its big enough to carry file s and important papers and maybe even your laptop but at the same time it gives a casual comfortable summer/spring colorful look to you as your off in the morning.. to me as I am leaving to my clinic it looked too casual.. that's why I had chosen the above instead.. i think what had put me off it for a work bag is the handle it was cloth too casual but if I was going to the beach its ideal or shopping on the weekend...

Part of that collection is this one of the kind of bags that I really like when I am travelling and sightseeing it frees your hand while your taking photos especially that it would carry the essentials for the day this would look great with any sexy jeans and a nice T while you are wondering around in one of those hop on Hop Off buses which i usually take when ever I go to a new city it gives you time to see every thing as well as have stops at important sites to walk around or have lunch and stuff.. and with this bag you don't have to worry about forgetting it on the bus because it would be side ways hanged on you.. this is "COACH HERITAGE STRIPE SWINGPACK"

I had seen this bangle in the catalogue before I went and too bad it wouldn't fit into my hand without hurting me.. I have a wide bony area in the mid of my hand so not every bangle fits..

Now this was something I really liked and most likely it will be bought in my next visit unless I get distracted by another key chain that is as cute as this one.. the seller was trying to sell me one of those key chains with a locked in it.. but I think I ve grown up for those romantic sentimental buys.. I am not as sentimental as I used to be...

and here is another key chain that was really nice and elegant "HERITAGE DISCS KEY FOB"

Don't worry I am not the kind that gets dressed from head to toe in one label like a sheep being stamped with one of those iron tattoos.. it happened that I like the work bag and the hand bag at the same time they were both right for a certain purpose..
