The recent rumor about Kuwait intention to install gay detector (did they call it Gaydar?) at the airport is becoming so viral around the world. Actually it’s being used for the sake of sarcasm. In more detail:
“Kuwait is seemingly working on a medical test that will determine if you are gay. It plans to install these devices inside airports in order to block homosexuals from entering the country.”
Wait, I mean seriously?! I never knew there’s such a test ever existed on planet earth. I hope this is only some sort of misunderstanding. “Face-palmed”.
The students in the Media Department at Kuwait University has created this inspiring documentary about a couple adopting a baby in Kuwait. The footage shows a Kuwaiti couple, Hesham Al Tawari and Safa Al Failakawi, talking about adoption and how it totally changed their whole life forever.
I remember we posted about their story when they first intended to adopt (or foster as they prefer to call it) the baby from the orphanage home two years ago [link]. I can see how the baby ‘Hamoody’ is growing up healthy and happy.
It looks like the photos for Michael Jackson’s son enjoying ice cream along with a teenage Kuwaiti girl have gone viral. I remember TMZ posting an article about little prince Jackson inviting his presumably Kuwaiti girlfriend (it wasn’t confirmed that she’s actually his gf) over for a fancy Hollywood dinner. personally, I’m not interested in celebrity gossips but it’s plain funny how many of the commentators were accusing the young girl of being a gold digger, seriously! Well I don’t want to sound mean but a closer look at the photos clearly shows how young Prince Jackson was cheaply dressed considering his wealth. I mean what’s with those shoes and socks, let alone his hair? Besides, it seems the girl comes from a very wealthy family.I’d be more concerned about Janet Jackson and her multi Billionaire Qatari hubby as long gold-digging is concerned. Though I can’t deny the clear affinity Jackson’s family have for Gulf people.
I came across this interesting story on AlWatan paper for a Kuwaiti couple that decided to break the norm and mores and simply get married underwater at the Scientific Center aquarium among the fishes and sharks, daring don’t you think? So instead of going for a fancy ballroom in a fancy hotel and spend thousands on marriage preparations and bringing bands or singers they decided to go for something so simple yet so memorable. I wish if I could read their full story or get more pictures for their non-traditional marriage.
I’m pretty sure most of you have read or heard about this humane and touching story though I really wanted to share it with you. Apparently, a grown up Kuwaiti has decided to embark on a long journey to Sri Lanka in search for his old nanny that served at his house during his childhood for so many years and helped in raising him, and after a long adventure he was finally able to find her. I got to admit that reading this story and seeing the photos of the man happily hugging his nanny made me emotional, we can notice how the old nanny was actually happy.
This is the humane spirit that we need (or lack thereof) in treating our house maids. I read numerous horrific stories about maids being tortured and abused but hopefully this will change. Does anyone know what’s his name on twitter?
I stumbled upon this interesting article on the paper, it’s basically a local study that discusses how marriage and relationship/dating scene has drastically changed in Kuwait in recent years due to many factors. Let’s admit it, Kuwait is indeed one of the most flirtish countries in the world, a quick drive on 2nd Ring Road or Gulf Road can show you what I mean. However, the article focused on the seriousness of street flirting in comparison with other ways/places to start a serious relationship like work place, campus…etc. Apparently, relationship and social experts all agree that street flirting in Kuwait rarely end up in marriage or serious relationship rather than playful short term type of affair.
“Clearly many are now against the arranged marriage (the traditional way) lest that such way doesn’t give enough time or space for potential partners to get to know each other better, but getting to know someone on streets is even worse” states social experts. So I suppose the so called “Love Street” can be called “Bluff Street”, what do you say?
I was in Sharq a while ago and saw that Al Hamra Tower lights were all pink, then it hit me! It’s October, and it’s the time of year when pink pops up everywhere in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. I’m glad to see that Al Hamra Tower management has taken such a simple-yet-humane initiative to show their support. What I did is shot a small video that I wish to share with you all to raise the awareness level to help millions of ladies out there.
The message we would like to convey “Please even if you are living healthy without any symptoms, get checked regularly and advise others to do the same”.
I always enjoy watching short films, they help demonstrate the acting skills, the director’s talent, and screenplay quality. Latest is the short Kuwaiti film, Al Salheya, which is the 3rd Kuwaiti film that participates in Festival de Cannes. The film is by young Kuwaiti director Sadeq Behbehani, and the story revolves about a man who lost his beloved wife in year 1954 due to the heavy rain (known as Senat Al Hadama or Destructive Year), and decides to live nearby his wife’s cemetery in Salhiya for the rest of his life, touchy.
The film stars reowned Kuwaiti actor Mohammed Jaber and young actor Hamad Al Omani.
