message 2: by Iman (new)

Iman btw, I like how you divided the "to-read" list into further categories!! Very smart, and I shall do that :P

Carina I was at a bookstore the other day and this book grabbed my attention - it was probably the cover with the beautiful blue beach shore - Gorgeous! Then I read the back and fell in love with the story concept.. 3 girlfriend leaving everything behind to explore the world and discover adventure! Who wouldnt love that?! I immediately imagined you and I doing something like this :) One can dream, right? :D

Im probably going to download this book tonight and start reading it. Some of the books Im currently reading are a bit of a "heavy" read; requiring personal reflection. Sometimes I need a light fiction book to break up the seriousness. Plus Im currently obsessed with reading anything travel related - travel books, travel blogs, travel memoroires, etc. This book is perfect! I also loved Eat, Pray, Love. If you havent read it, its about a woman in her early 30s who realizes shes living a life that isnt "hers" and that is causing her a lot of misery. So she embarks on a year long journey of self discovery to 3 countries (Italy, Indonesia and India). Unfortunately the book gets a lot of bad reviews because the author is a bit "self-absorbed" but I loved it and in many ways, it changed me. Anyway thats off topic. Basically I love travel memoires :p

Ya I needed to create the shelves coz my "to read" shelf was a mess and it was hard to find books. Now If Im looking for a travel book, its easier to find :D
I feel you creating the shelves tho is secretly an excuse to spend more time on this site :p I dont blame you though! I spend all day at work browsing books on here!

Lunch time for me here at work - msg you more when I get back :D

Iman hehe...Any "productive" time to spend on here is a good thing XD

That's exactly what I thought too when I read the summary on here. And I imagined the both of us doing a Eurotrip!!!!! hehe

I still didn't read the book Eat, Pray, Love but I saw the movie. You're right, I heard/read so many bad reviews about the book. But I will read it if you liked it that much

Sa7ten!! What did you have?

Carina I ended up buying Thai food. Ever since I went to Thailand last year, I fell in love with it. I love green thai curry. Have you ever tried Thai food?

Oh btw, I did a bit of research online and since you once told me that you have never had sushi before, I became determined to make sure we have sushi together one day and I found a highly rated sushi restaurant in lebanon. So thats gonna be one of the things we're gonna do together :D
I hope you havent tried sushi yet... have you? lol

message 6: by Iman (new)

Iman I tastes Thai food when I went to Australia 2 yrs ago. And you're right, it's delicious!!!!

Which restaurant? I'm curious :p there are sooo many sushi places here. Well the only thing I tasted was the cucumber in the middle of the rice and rolled in seaweed. I don't even know what it's called!!! Lol. So I'll build up the courage to actually eat sushi when you come here. Just for you!!!! <3

message 7: by Carina (new) - added it

Carina Hahahah its probably a cucumber roll, or a california roll! Dont worry, we will start you with baby steps and advance you to real sushi eventually :D
Did you like it when you tried it or were you completely disgusted by it?

I dont remember the name of the restaurant but I read the review on a lebanese blog (+961 -- thats what the blog is called lol).. Ok I just went back to the blog and the name of the restaurant is "Oceanus" in Achrafieh. Have you ever tried it? Or heard of it? Or do you completely try to stay clear of all sushi placeS? :P

message 8: by Carina (new) - added it

Carina Btw u gotta read this blog post.. I couldnt stop laughing!! I kept thinking that youll enjoy this! Although its about Lebanese men/women, it applies to most Arabs

message 9: by Iman (new)

Iman I like baby steps :P
I actually liked it...I found it a bit heavy, maybe it's the seaweed...but, like I said, I shall try them when you get here!!! :D
btw, did you get my e-mail? I was asking you some questions about your stay here

Yep, Oceanus and another one called Tsunami are the most famous ones in Beirut. Or so i hear. And Achrafieh is close. It's about 5 mins away by car from where I live :D

Any special plans for Easter holiday? How is fasting this year?

message 10: by Carina (new) - added it

Carina Ahh work has been so busy the last couple of days.. no time to read my book or reply to your msgs! :(

message 11: by Carina (new) - added it

Carina Regarding my stay in Lebanon, Im still figuring out some details.. and I have a bit of "news" to share. But I dont wanna share before everything is confirmed, I dont want you to be disappointed if things change :( But dont worry, I will give you at least 3 weeks notice, I promise! (I hope thats enough time, please let me know if you need more of a notice - but I do promise I will not interfere in any way with your work - you will know what I mean in a while).

Btw when does your summer vacation start, and what are your plans for summer?

message 12: by Carina (new) - added it

Carina Nothing too special planned for Easter.. My dad is arriving on Monday, so we'll be spending it with him (as every year lol). Just church, family, and lots and lots of food.. lol, very typical Easter!
(And Im not fasting.. so its going great lol.. Shame on me :(

Its my brothers birthday this weekend as well.. He is turning 19!! Can you believe it?? I feel OLD saying that!
At his request, he wants to go to an Arabic restaurant for dinner (coz he misses having shish tawook!) and then he wants to go for shisha! Then next weekend his friends are taking him to Niagara Falls to celebrate. Turning 19 is a big deal here because its the "legal" age (you can now drink and get into clubs lol). So theyre going to go clubbing and go to the casino (among other things, Im sure).. Imagine that!! lol Doesnt it feel just like yesterday that he was 6 yrs old?! Ahh

message 13: by Iman (new)

Iman i have no idea how i missed these msgs!!! Although I'm sure I read the bit about your brother's bday, because I clearly remember remembering the small kid he was when I first met him!! This is soooo terrible of me not replying on these sooner!! Sorrrrrry!!!!

So is the news in your 2nd message the same news you sent me in your facebook message? And I really can't wait to know what it is!!!!! So hurry & confirm everything!!! know i'm just showing my enthusiasm here :P Take your time (but not too long :P) <3

message 14: by Iman (new)

Iman My summer vacation starts at the end of June. Usually around the 25th of June. I haven't planned anything yet for my summer. A complete month will be dedicated to me sleeping since Ramadan starts on the 20th of July!!! Ahhh, that means iftar will be at 8:30 PM!! Can't you believe that! Add the humidity and heat to that! I think it would be better if I go and fast in Australia, lol
I'm hoping that by the time you get here, I will be finished with their monthly tests. I hope!
