Double the Trouble

One baby is hard to handle, and when two babies come at the same time, chaos is sure to ensue. Though there will surely be tough times, twins equals double the blessing. In Bahrain, Shaik Nasser bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, son of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, was blessed with twin boys.

HM King Hamad received a letter from King Mohammed VI of Morocco to congratulate him and his family and to bless the newborns. The Moroccan king expressed his joy and wishes health and prosperity upon the Bahraini people. He prays that happiness is to ensue the delivery of the twins.

Congratulations HM King Hamad!

Quench Your Thirst

What’s the best type of drink on a hot summer day? Some may say water while others may choose their favorite drink, but there are numerous who would vouch for iced tea! Have it sweetened, unsweetened or any mixture in between. Pour some lemonade in it and you can have what we call an “Arnold Palmer”, named after the famous golfer.

June is National Iced Tea Month, and it’s important to get the message out before the month runs out! Now is the perfect time to try different types of iced teas from green tea to raspberry tea. The best part is that you can make the tea all your own or even decide to mix the teas together.
Iced tea is made like regular tea, by brewing it, but the difference is you allow the tea to naturally cool or pour ice in it to cool it down making it the perfect cool drink.

This summer grab yourself a nice cold glass of iced tea, in any flavor that you like. It’s the perfect quench for that summer thirst.
