The Burj Al Babas housing development started life with a rather unusual concept - more than 700 identical chateaux (on a small scale, of course) to be built in the countryside of central Turkey, with prices starting from around £280,000. Now the dream of owning your own Turkish chateau is in jeopardy since its developer filed for bankruptcy.
The estate began construction in 2014, and the houses are all at different stages of completion. The developer, Sarot Group, filed for bankruptcy in November with debts of $27 million, according to Bloomberg.
The development would have been quite something, with a central complex including Turkish baths, fitness facilities, sports pitches, a cinema and shops. Sarot Group believes they may be able to rescue it, however, and claim that they only need to sell 100 of the villas to restore the project. So if you fancy living in an oddly Disneyesque new build somewhere been Istanbul and Ankara, there's no better time to buy.

So my kid's school had a situation whereby some exam papers were stolen before the exam. How it happened? And is it fair to make the kids re-sit the exams? Are not important to me. Sadly, this is not an uncommon occurrence globally. What is important to me is that the school deals with it accordingly.
1. Have the kids re-sit the exams. Sounds good to me, it would be unfair if even one of those kids had gotten an A* from cheating.
2. Investigate and discipline those concerned. Firing any staff or expelling any students involved, making an example of them and sending a clear warning to any who may consider such violations in the future.
3. Ensure that strict measures are put in place to avoid this happening again.
Thank you KES.
Life is unfair, and rather than allowing my daughter to whine and feel sorry for herself she is back at school today re-sitting Chemistry with the other kids, and Maths tomorrow.
Yesterday, I was talking to someone who happily told me about a person he used to pay to write his essays, presentations and dissertations to whom he paid KD 20 for his services. Apparently, this is rampant and there are even online websites where you can find someone to hire, just Google 'write my dissertation cheap'.
We do not live in a perfect world. At the end of the day it is core values that are at stake; avoiding corruption, encouraging accountability and most of all your good reputation and integrity. A lazy, dumb ass that cheats is still a lazy, dumb ass. Oops sorry no, they are a cheating, lazy, dumb ass.

Gorgeous Covent Garden
Tower of London. I managed to drag two young Kuwaiti friends
along with my daughter to see it
The Reality: Peggy Porschen THE most Instagramable bakery in London
with a queue around the block
|Ya gotta love Soho|
This made me chuckle. London already moving on before midnight on NYE
and advertising Valentine's Day.
|'Is This Just Fantasy'|
|It could say, "Have they gawn yet?" But it doesn't.|
London was invaded by Kuwaitis this Christmas and this meme made the rounds. The Kuwaitis are very welcome, they are well behaved and spend an absolute fortune.
Luckily for us Sterling is so low against the Dinar.
|Fabulous family memories made at the National History Museum |
and Winter Wonderland.

A wonderful time had by all. The only thing I can not recommend doing at this time of the year is shopping. It was a nightmare. So we didn't, or rather my husband and I didn't, but my daughter braved the queues, bustling and tax-free forms and she loved every second.
Château de Chillon, aka Chillon Castle, sits just on the eastern shore of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Chillon is technically an island fortress, built on a small stone outcropping with the lake forming a moat. The castle dates back to at least 1150 when it was under the control of the Counts of Savoy.
A magical moment from summer 2018 followed by a trip to a chocolate factory.

My darling niece introduced me to this after I complimented her on her glowing skin. She then, very sweetly, sent over a box of goodies from SeoulKool, curated K-Beauty by the lovely Ascia. I've been using it for 3 weeks now and can really see the difference. I have never treated my skin so well and my skin is thanking me for it. I know the 10 steps sounds a lot but you're worth it.
1. Oil cleanser to remove dirt and make-up
2. Foaming cleanser (Neogen Green Tea is fab)
3. Exfoliator (Neogen Bio Peel Gauze Peeling in lemon are amazing)
6. Serum, Boosters, Ampoules
7. Mask (usually a hydrating or brightening one)
8. Eye cream
9. Face cream
I'm eager to get down to their recently opened store and stock up on some more goodies.
You will immediately notice your skin looks plump, feels soft and clean. After a week or so it looks clear and more youthful and your make-up goes on easier and way better. Skin looks and feels really hydrated but light, not sticky, just very happy. I'm a convert and have to say this is a regimen that I wish I had done a long, long time ago. And as if you need more than this; it is well priced. Yayyy!
Items can be ordered online and delivered to you via their website Seoul Kool [link] or purchased from their new store, Seoul Kool, which opened today in Sama Mall in Eqaila.
PS. You can start with just a few items and then when convinced invest in the rest. The website and staff in store can help with choosing a plan that suits you.
