Liquorice and lingerie February 18, 2007Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Culture, Food, Saudi Arabia, Saudi culture, Sweden.
As I took a bath a few days back I was hit by high fever. 40.5 celcius to be exact (since I’m Swedish) . Went to the dr the day after and turns out I had an infection which needed some antibiotics. I was told to take antibiotics and panadol for some time (I never take panadol and hardly ever antibiotics unless I have to, sooo grrr) and now to my biiig excitement (screaming like I won a million dollars!!!) I have an allergic reaction to the antibiotics.
It’s getting warmer here but my busy baby days pass so fast I don’t have time to go out. Inshalla soon.
I been thinking about why on earth men are selling everything from womens make up to lingerie in this country. It just doesn’t make any bleeding sense. Is that to promote men and women mixing or what is the idea? I am all for a mixed society but since Saudi Arabia doesn’t work that way I am a little puzzled. As a woman, you go into a clothes or make up shop and what do you find? Hot, young Lebanese, Egyptian and probably even Saudi men (and plenty other nationalites) offering their assistance. They are polite and all but to be honest and I really don’t want to sound chauvinist BUT I DON’T want to ask dudes for things when I’m buying lingerie! Surprised? Duh!
Where is the common sense God gave us, “you people that invented this corrupt system”?? Bring it out and use it! It’s not too hard!
Ok, there are no changing rooms for women of course (don’t know if it is the same for men) so sure we don’t have to, have guys fitting our bras and getting other sizes for us. Good. Instead we only have to guess if the item will fit us and look good on us, buy it and then if it looks like shite we can return it and pick another item from the store. And what if I don’t want anything else from that store? Well tough shit.
God help them please.
Yes, why is Sweden one of the few countries in the world that sells salty liquorice? I know Denmark and Finland does as well and some other European countries. Everyone in the whole world likes salt so why not salty liquorice?
Not to mention the best crisps (chips if your American) in the world ….Swedish ones of course. Estrella and OLW. Why aren’t they sold all over the world?
I give up.
