A friend to our blog has sent us this short clip showing the waste and trash left over from Ministry of Awqaf & Islamic affairs after removal of their spring camp. I thought Baladiya & K-EPA wouldn’t allow for such uncivilized acts go unpunished! I’m shocked to see such an irresponsible act from an official govermental body that supposedly represents Islam.

Thanks [Nawaf]

20140128_084515 (Large)Spotted this Manhattan Taxi Cab on King Fahad highway sometime back and I was like “Huh, what is it doing in Kuwait?”. Isn’t it cool if they launch a taxi company with yellow cabs like those we see in NYC instead of those annoying Yota Corollas? I mean just looking at it would take me where I really wish to be! Yeah you guessed it, Times Square!

We all have those friends who drive waaaay too fast for no reason, (I’m guilty of it-sometimes!). Some of us have also lost love ones, family members, or witnessed accidents first hand. I got into my first accident last week and I’m still traumatized. A man ran into the side of my car at a roundabout and pushed me half way down the road before he took his foot off the gas. I am so thankful that my car is so friggin old because otherwise, I would have died that night.

Anyway, here’s a video of people who thought they were meeting a friend or loved one somewhere and instead where invited to their own funeral. The video is in French, so make sure to have the subtitles on in English. Click on the little icon that looks like a letter on the bottom right hand of the video, click on and make sure it’s in English, (This is better known as the CC or closed caption, but if you’re computer illiterate like me, you’re welcome:P)

So. Saad Lamjared is a Moroccan singer who is nothing less than adorable, I’ll admit. But what happened over the span of the last couple of days is ridiculous. He became ridiculously famous around this region after his song ENTY went viral.

It’s a pretty good song, no joke!

Anyway. He was in Kuwait, or is still in Kuwait, for the opening of TFK in Hamra Mall. We has basically assaulted in the middle of the mall. There are a million videos going around of what happened and the swarm of girls (and guys) around him.

Here are some of them. Enjoy!

Poor man is probably traumatized. People need to learn how to not act in public and be civilized lol. Too funny!

This video came up on my news feed on Facebook, and I thought I would share it. We see modern day slavery everyday in Kuwait, and just because they come from third world countries, no one cares. Those people you disrespect everyday at restaurants, gas stations, on the streets, in the malls, in your own house, virtually everywhere, is someone’s family. That’s someone’s mother. Someone’s father.

Throw a piece of garbage on the floor then bend down and pick it up. Throw it again and pick it up again. Do that 10 times and see how good your back feels. Then imagine someone the age of your father or grandfather doing it for 12 hours a day 6 days a week for about 12 KD. Then being cramped into a room the size of you bathroom with 9 other people.

ElhamdilAllah, we’re so fortunate and blessed to have a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs. Respect one another. These people have left their entire life behind in search of a better life only to be treated like cattle.

This weekend I was invited to witness first hand stunts, drifting, and intense rubber burning at the Infiniti Red Bull racing event. The day consisted of Carlos Sainz Jr., who tore up the streets (literally!) in a Formula 1 racing car sponsored by Infiniti, Abdo Feghali, a Lebanese drifter who currently holds the world record for the longest drift and is the Middle East Hill Climb Champion, and finally Chris Pfeiffer who left the crowd in awe at his amazingly executed stunts on his motorcycle.

A whopping 20,000 people showed up to the event to cheer on the athletes and feel the adrenalin rush! Gulf Road was closed from right before the Kuwait Towers in order for this event to take this place.

Carlos Sainz Jr. was so extremely fast that I couldn’t really get that many pictures of him. Here’s the best I could do under the circumstances. (Some of these photos were sent to me from Red Bull)
