Milcha… Milcha… Milcha..


This was a pressure built up over the summer and over Ramadan, the next couple of weeks are filled with milchas (engagements) and I have a card for almost everyday for the next three weeks. It was an insane day, it felt like work because I just managed to get home and get a quick bite to eat before having to head out an hour later. When you have a milcha know there is going to be traffic where ever your heading because a lot of people are going to be invited there too. I met up with my family and headed to each one with them, except for the last one. You spend the first 10 – 20 minutes either waiting because of the amount of people or saying hello to people you haven’t seen in a while.


Its funny in Kuwait you have friends that you know well but because of work and other things taking up your time you don’t see them as often as you used to, so you start seeing them at all these milchas, one after the other. And no matter how organized the people are there is always going to be a huge amount of traffic. It was like running a marathon, and it was fun seeing people you haven’t seen in a while and just catching up. I’m just happy men just have to wear dishdashas it simplifies things for the guys having to run around.. These are things that I love about Kuwait, even though you are exhausted at the end of the day, its well worth it.

  1. I love it when I’m invited to weddings and you’re right dishdashas are so great for men, they look so good too. Though it hurts my eyes when they switch from winter to summer dishdashas.

  3. You know I just saw one of those cards in my house. Dad was invited to a milcha and I couldn’t help wondering: do all milchas use the same invite card? Women have gotten really crafty with their invitations but with men it’s really simple and they seem to all be using the same card!!

  4. pearls: I like both Winter and Summer dishdashas for different reasons! Both are good!

    Corolla Man: When we get rid of a few more!

    1001: Men are very simple, and I think he might have been invited to the same milcha. When it comes to men, they can’t go to crazy with the design because it would look really bad. Getting creative in Kuwait is a fine line!

  5. at least you don’t have to spend hours and hours doing your makeup, hair get into different outfits just to go spend an hour at the wedding.

  6. i love milchas and parties, bs sometimes when they are all cramped one after the other it can get exhausting!

    and i hate not going cause daddy always says when someone goes thru the trouble of inviting u lazim etwajboonhum and you go!

    but u have it reeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaal easy compared to us!

    well. these are the things i hate about Kuwait
    i always hated weddings but especially local ones , i don’t know why but i just do

    i wounder why don’t they do parties when divorce happened? because thats how those things end up usually…

  9. shopa: very true! I have about 10-12 dishdashas of different shades of yellow and white! So it makes it siimple!

    eshda3wa: very easy compared to you guys! And if they invite it doesn’t mean you have to go really!

    Laialy: for sure!

    A: lol!

    Damin Dash: I really like that it brings a lot of people together and your happy for them, so I don’t mind really. Not all of them go bad really, many are doing well!
