Saturday Dewaneya



I passed by my cousin’s Dewaneya like every saturday, always looking forward to it at the end of the day! This time I decided to take my time and not show up at 8:00pm instead I showed up at 9:00pm and I’m happy I wasn’t the first person there. I have been annoying my cousin about his unfashionably late arrivals at this dewaneya, I think after a few years he has gotten a bit of the hint!

This night was a very good night, for the first time I wasn’t feeling sleepy by 10pm, its probably because I slept early! We were only a few guys eating dinner but just as we were finishing more and more people showed up and it was fun. Conversations flying left and right, covering multiple topics, and a good amount of fun. I wish I could stay longer but having to wake up early is a killer. Always good to go to a dewaneya with a good bunch of guys.

  1. I’m going to own Dewaniya at my backyard here in Countryside Egypt. I think it’s a nice tradition.
    bon appetit

  2. Muh’d M. Mansour: very nice indeed .. This is one thing I like about Kuwaitis. The Diwaniya thing is common in Kuwait.

    Too sad we don’t see this here in Oman as much as Kuwait. We do have some of them, a diwanya is called Sabla in Oman. And that’s seen in countrysides more than the city, Muscat. But it’s nice anyway!

  3. N.: Alah e3afeech!

    Muh’d M. Mansour: yeah its a good tradition! Thanks

    Amjad: yeah its always a nice thing, in Kuwait we have a lot of them!
