On September 28, Mera came over and brought lunch. Afterwards, I got dressed in my H&M Grey Mom Jeans (hauled here) and we went to The Avenues.
We were going to check out the new Hilton Garden Inn (which had just opened up at the time), because we were thinking of taking the kids and spending the night there. We wanted to pretend we were traveling abroad (because traveling for fun wasn’t a thing anymore, on account of the pandemic).
The rooms were pretty basic and the view was abysmal (you can see the room and what I was wearing, here) so we opted out. Instead, I suggested we make dinner reservation at Trapani, one of my favorite restaurants in Kuwait.
While we waited for them to call us for our reservation, we browsed around the mall. We hit up Boots (tiny store), but didn’t get anything from there. Then we went to Etude House, which I knew had opened up some time ago, but had never gotten a chance to visit.
The place looked like it had been ransacked! Shelves were half-empty. Everything had been picked over. Just what exactly had happened here? Undeterred, I managed to snag a few items.
