Eat and Drink Australia : I’m lovin’ it with Mc Lamb burger!



I am lovin’ it even more with this lamb burger. Mc Donald’s is almost the favourite childhood memories for most of us. Yours truly is no exception. I remember looking forward to Sunday mornings very much because father would take us to the Kids club in McD’s and that’s when we get our favourite burger (well they only gave us one choice back then), the Mc Egg. That might be just the reason why I love McEggs so much. Probably because very much connected by those good memories and fun times I had with the rest of those kids every Sunday. I am so glad that the McEgg is back with the deluxe version. Read about Mc Egg Deluxe here

Iced Cappuccino (DIY)

Iced Cappuccino (DIY)

Just like many other Canadians, Tim Horton’s Iced Cappuccino is one of the drinks we enjoy in summer (sometimes even in fall & winter). One day while brainstorming what we should experiment next in our Blendtec Blenders, we thought of Googling Tim’s Iced Cappuccino recipe.

Yes I am American and I was born Muslim

All American Muslima

This is   the type of thing that happens everyday. Well, maybe not every day but quite often. So I’m sitting in the Masjid with my sister watching our kids play and Arab woman enters. She asks a few questions concerning when the program will begin and I answer her. This is the first time I am seeing her. I neither know her name nor exactly where she is from. All I can tell about her is that english is not her first language and she has features of an Arab. She sits down across the room as the kids play. She looks at me and asks me if I am American. I answer her and then ask her if she is new to the community and her name. She answers and then asks my name. I say “Aneesah” and then surprisingly she says “Oh you have an Arabic name”…
