I have to say I had 3 great days!! My friend came from Kuwait with another 2 guys on Thursday and they left on Saturday noon time… Yes 2 days only!! 😦

I was worried! I kind of felt comfortable with my friend that I didn’t know so well… But the other two guys I didn’t know at all and I was literally freaking out… I was so worried they would remind me of the bad side of Kuwait and how my husband would react to them… But those guys proved me wrong! They reminded me of the good things I loved in Kuwait and they made my husband and daughter fall in love with them! Ok not fall in love but really happy to meet… 😛

2 days is such a short time, and the day they left I was so sad and almost cried few times… But as I told myself I will see them again and how lucky I was to know them I didn’t really get depressed for them going so early! I think the funniest part of the day when they left was when I told Iida (my daughter) that the guys are leaving… she got this really sad face and asked me why did they stay for just one day (she only saw them on Friday) and why can’t they stay for ten weeks!!!! I think she meant ten days not ten weeks…

I want to thank the guys for making me so proud of Kuwaitis and Kuwait and making me and my family so excited and happy for the time they stayed here! I hope to see you all again soon!!

A friend from Kuwait is coming to visit! Tomorrow!!!! 😛

I don’t actually know how to feel! Sometimes I’m so excited that I could fly, but other times I’m so nervous that I’d like to die!

This friend I met through my blog! And we do share our love to Kimi!! My Ice Man!! I’m so glad my husband is getting to meet some Kuwaitis and all I’m hoping for is they leave him with a good impression about Kuwaiti guys!

Now if you don’t know I’m half Kuwaiti and half Finnish and I live in Cyprus! So I am a very multicultural person! I’m not a Muslim but then again I’m not real Christian either even though I belong to the church and was baptized as an Orthodox Christian! I wear daring cloths! You can ask Emmi (my best friend) about how daring I could get! I sunbath topless and my husband hates it if I have anything but a string bikini on! He says I would look nicer with less tan lines!

So I was not accepted with my ways of thinking in Kuwait! Because they have a different way, which I do respect! So meeting after 10 years some Kuwaiti guys just make me wonder what will come out of it!? Am I going to remember the bad experiences I had? Or is it going to bring back to me the fun and good times I had? Are they going to be judging me? Or will they accept and respect me the way I am?

All these question will be answered after 1 ½ day!!!!

I know I disappeared again for 1 week! I thought I won’t but it was out of my hands!!!

Friday 15th. I came home put my PC on and started smelling as if there was something burning so I had to close the PC!

Saturday 14th. I was fully booked at work! And people just kept coming in and trying to get me to squeeze them between my appointments which were impossible!! I was supposed to finish at 8pm and I ended finishing at 9:30pm! Now the there would have been any problems if I didn’t have to be in Larnaka at 10pm! And driving normal speed would take minimum 30 mins on a normal day!! 45 mins on a Sat! So what I did is jump in the car, time was 9:35 I got out of Agia Napa traffic by 9:40 got to the high way and started doing my hair while controlling the wheel with my knee and got it done by 9:50 then was eating my lunch that I never had time to eat before and all that driving 140-160km/h! I got to my destination at 9:58!!! 😀

What was I doing in Larnaka? I was modeling for body painting! I got my whole face breasts stomach legs and behind painted!! It was so cool and I loved it and would do it 100 times more if I get a chance! I’m posting a picture from the face! Not the breasts!!! 😛

Sunday 16th. I was trying to get over Saturday!!!!

Monday 17th. Took the PC to get fixed and just continued with my full stress week!

So Monday – Thursday. I was stressing about the graduation ceremony that was on Thursday! And I haven’t found a dress or shoes for it!

Thursday 19th. I went to school in the morning and got with my group our model ready!! She looked amazing! Stelios came to Larnaka to help me look for the dress for the evening. After 1 ½ hour later we found a dress! But they didn’t have my size! They call the supplier who was delivering some clothes at that time to the district close to where we lived! He said he had one and we made a plan to meet him close to our place! We got there in time picked the dress from him, went home and got to bed to relax! Yes right I relax on my graduation day! So I wake up at 2pm have a shower brush my teeth and drive to work so my boss would make my make up! RED!!! I was beautiful!! Man my boss is so talented!! I did want the red lipstick and was happy that it went well with the dress I bought! Now the shoes I went to fin some as soon as I left Agia Napa… Nice simple black sandals were my choice!

Now I got back home at 4:20pm and had to be ready at 5! I was happy I didn’t have to worry about the makeup and I just jumped in to the dress and shoes and got my hair done in a very simple way and was ready before 5! Got the ceremony that was amazing! And I wasn’t very shocked when I was called to get rewarded for the best written project of the year! And my second reward was half scholarship and a trophy for the second best in the year 2006-2007!! I graduated with 98%!!! And the only reason I wasn’t first was because I missed 3 weeks from the studying year because I had to go to Finland 2 times and my girl fell ill once and few other personal probs I faced through the year! And the girl who got the first position was less than a point higher than me as my teachers explained to me!

So that was about it for what happened to me through out the last week!!!

60 laps… Amazing full of unknown and unexpected events!

Rain was expected and it did start a minute before the lights went on… Massa takes over Alonso which made me so happy and Hamilton got from 10th to 4th but lost it in few seconds because of the tyres that got him back again!

The heavy rain caused a huge mess and change in positions! As Räikkönen missed the pit he had to go for another lap that caused him his position to end up 7th while Winkelhock drove in the first position his first time in his F1 carrier!

On the third lap Hamilton, Sutil, Rosberg and Speed got off at the same point and it was seconds for Liuzzi to join them! Than ended up with a red flag and the race was stopped till things were fixed for the race to start…

Starting the race again with Button, Sutil, Rosberg, Speed and Liuzzi out of the race… Ice man was 7th, Winkilhock first, Coulthhard from fifth and Hamilton being a lap down but showing the giving up does not exist in his vocabulary!

By the 16th lap Räikkönen got to Alonso’s tail and started to push hard for the second position… But that kept going for a while but no overtaking!

At the 20th lap Ralf gets out because of a contact made with Heidfeld and left very angry pushing the F1 marshal that came to the scene to help him out of the track!

22nd lap and Hamilton keeps setting a thither fastest lap after another! The boy is not showing any slowing down!!! He just keeps going!

On the lap 35 my man got an intermittent problem that makes him slow down and interring the pit and he was pushed towards the Ferrari Garage by the marshals! What pisses me off most is the last few years every time he was racing in the Grand Prix of Europe he got some kind of car trouble that made him get out! And this time his grandmother was there watching him that just breaks my heart!!! 😦

Rain started again and made the cars get to pit to change wheels again and the wet ground got Massa bit unstable giving Alonso the chance to pass him and take the first position! That didn’t make me happy of course!

Long and full race! But not the results I was hoping for!! 😦

So Kimi has been climbing back up the ladder to the top as I hope! I’m waiting now for the Race that will be on in 30 mins!!! And my Ice man will be starting in the pole position!!! 😀

Just keeping my finger crossed!!

I went to the beach with my little family! Laid down topless and got some extra tan while Stelios read his newspaper and Iida fooled around making friends! I enjoyed the beautiful Mediterranean water! It’s so clear and beautiful here in Cyprus! That was from 10:30am – 2:15pm… Then I headed to catch up with Stelios… who left 1 hour earlier to go home to take a shower and change for work… in café ‘Liquid’ to watch F1 which I really enjoyed! 😉

Räikkönen does it 2 in a row!!! 😀

He took the chequered flag to win for Ferrari! 😀

So Hamilton now leads with 70 points, Alonso second with 58 points and Räikkönen kicks Massa to fourth and take third position with 52 points and leaving Massa with 51 points!

I see a lot of hope that Räikkönen is bringing back to my heart with his performance in the last 2 weeks! I have to say thank you Ice Man!!! 😀

Yesterday was a long day!

We got our bike! 😀 I’m in love with it! I just adore it! It’s a he but still haven’t named him! I will be getting driving lessons from Panayiotis, Iida’s Godfather!! He is a real biker, which makes me really excited and comfortable!  

So our bike is a Honda… Honda X4! It’s candy blue customized colour! It’s been having a lot of extras! It goes as fast as 215km/h and it takes less than 15 second to get from 0 to 190 as my husband tried it today! I don’t think I’ll be trying to do that anytime soon! It’s 13 horses or 1300cc as some calls it! It’s bit heavy but because Panayiotis said I’ll manage just well and will get it riding right I feel comfortable and ready for my first lesson!!!  

Stelios been really over welled even though he has never been a motorbike person! He was like a little child couldn’t sleep for days because he was so excited and of course he tried his best to keep me a wake with him for few nights!  

But it was all worth it now that I have my new family member in our garage safe and sound! 😀





Stelios passing me on the way out of Larnaka;


Then I over take him before we get to the highway!! 😛



Then our new baby stays safe and sound in our garage;

I want apologies for not posting for such a long time! This is why: 

1. I haven’t been getting any sleep so I’m so tired every day! I don’t know why, just can’t get a good night sleep!

2. I’ve been running around from Larnaka to Nicosia to school to work continuously for the last 2 weeks!

3. My graduation ceremony is coming on the 19th. July, 2007! That in one and half week, and I’m going crazy trying to cope with 3 other girls on the model and the hairstyle we will present on that day! In other words I just gave up went back and let them do what ever they want, Just cat handle the migraine I got after every single time we were talking and doing a trial!

4. I was participating last Sunday in a beauty competition!! NO!! NO!! I was just there to fix the girls’ and boys’ hair! I couldn’t even stay to see who won! It was nice and fun but I did get really tired!

5. I haven’t been seeing Iida! I see her in the morning while she’s a sleep, then I’ll see her again after 9pm when I go to pick her up and take her home! I’ll be in bed by 10pm because I would be so dead tired!

6. I had my final practical exams last week! Now that went well but won’t know the results till end of next week or the week after!

7. Work has been going smoothly except for every Thursday when I have to travel 1 hour to Nicosia and 1 hour back for Goldwell and KMS training!

8. The only 1-2 hours I have for myself every day in the last 2 weeks have been in the gym! I have that time like 5 days 2 weeks ago and 3 days all last week!

9. We were also at the same time looking for a motorbike and we did find one!! 😀

That’s about it for my reasons, so would you forgive me?
