Why does it keep getting worse, worse, worse?

Arabic designers take note: there’s a new awesome tool called Font Face that will greatly improve your life. Get access to tens of nice Arabic fonts, optimized for web.
It’s really simple and really awesome to use. Just filter through the styles on the sidebar, and then you have the option to either download the web font or embed it in your website for loading.
You can also view fonts as headlines or body text in each font view.
I encourage everyone to share a link with their designer friends to Font Face. You’ll make their day, promise! :)
The best burger in Amman these days is the gourmet burger at Brisket. It isn’t a cheap burger, but it’s so good it doesn’t matter. The husband/wife team really know their smokey business. Ali, chef/owner/smoker, is like Seinfeld’s soup Nazi. He cuts and spices his own beef, and you really should listen to his recommendations.
What I love about Brisket is that it’s a hole-in-the-wall. I love that you can count the menu items on one hand (brisket, burger, brisket on burger, steak, and wings). I love how involved the husband/wife team are in the business. I love their crazy working hours (7:00PM to 11:00PM).
Best. Burger. In. Amman.
What to try: Personally, I like sharing half a gourmet burger and half a brisket sandwich with someone, to get the most yum factor possible. I always leave Brisket with happy birds chirping in my tummy. Ask for the homemade mayo, not always available though.
Where to find: Brisket is next to Abella Shmeisani
Although I’m really not a wintery person, December is always nice because it’s full of feasts. This December was extra special though :)
Kitchenette’s AWESOME calendar
This December, I wore this beautiful embroidered Palestinian dress that my grandmother made for my aunt in the 60s, when my aunt was 14. I love the simplicity of it, and the white fabric. I dropped by to show it to my aunt and grandma before my dinner. I was bequeathed this dress when I was 14 myself (’99), and they forgot all about it. They were so ecstatic!
So excited for 2015, aren’t we?
