Freej

Freej is a cartoon from UAE that follows the lives of 4 emirati ladies that go on crazy adventures and sometimes get themselves into trouble in cute ways. The cartoon has become very popular in the gulf region and the ladies even star in their own airline safety video: 


     

Besides being cute watching Arabic cartoons can also help you to learn words and phrases as well as a little bit about the culture in the region the cartoon was made.




My favorite character on the show is Um Khammas, she is funny and always makes me smile.



Also the Freej ladies always wear their burg3s, with the increased popularity of the show more people have become interested in wearing the burg3 and some take photos and create art emulating the ladies from the cartoon

Abaya Of The Week



I think this one looks really classy and elegant, the fringes along the sides of the abaya and shayla make it look exquisite. I would want to wear this one to a fancy special occasion.

Kuwaiti Wedding Cakes


















These royal wedding cakes were made by Omar Addihaoui, he is an executive pastry chef in Kuwait and makes some amazing cake creations!! I would never want a cake this large or expensive at my wedding if Im ever lucky enough to get married but I do enjoy looking at such extravagantly designed cakes.
