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.
Afraid of heights? Well then this is definitely not meant for you! The above view is looking-down from the 78th floor trestle from the tallest building in Kuwait, Al Hamra Tower. We can see the top of the Luxury Center and the parked cars as tiny dots. I wish the same photo can be taken at night!
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)
It’s finally thursday!! Here’s an amazing amazing song by local Kuwaiti talent who goes my the name Arabique! Be sure to check out more of his music on YouTube and remember me when he’s the next big thing out there
There’s been so much backlash from domestic violence cases in Lebanon (mostly) but in the Middle East as a whole. Now, more than ever, we are hearing about so many murders carried out by angry, and extremely abusive, men beating their wives to death.
An organization called MARCH organizes peaceful protests and rallies in order to show the severity of the issue and ensure the government passes a law protecting women against domestic violence. There have been so many recorded cases of women being beaten to death with a kitchen appliance, being shot, or just being physically beat until they were no longer breathing.
For mother’s day, they launched a campaign with very powerful images that honestly gave me goosebumps. What if it was your mother or sister that was being beaten? It’s a very very sever form of abuse. Taking your anger out on a woman doesn’t make you a bigger man, it makes you a coward.
Women’s Day was used for the good of this campaign where thousands among thousands went down to the streets to protest against what is going on in the country. When there is so much wrong happening, it’s easy to get lost in the turmoil of the chaos in the country.
Men, please man up. Use your words, not your hands. Don’t raise your voice, raise your argument, your knowledge, your respect. It’s so sad that all of this is going on at home.
These are only some of the victims who have fallen in the arms of abusive men who have been abusive, and ultimately killed their wives.
All expecting mothers are terrified of knowing that they might have a baby with down syndrome. Having a baby later on in your life increases the risk of this happening, but all it is really is in an extra chromosome.
It may make their life a little harder, especially since people are so mean, but they’re still human beings, and being a mom is scary regardless of how many chromosomes your child has. Thought I’d share this video with you, make sure you keep a tissue box close!
I heard that Arwa (owned by The CocaCola Company) implants had been using sewage water in the water they’re selling? I know water treatment plants treat sewage and waste water till it’s safe to drink, but apparently there’s backlash as to how clean this water actually is? A friend of mine told me that all the water has been recalled and thrown up because it’s unsafe.
