Missed The British Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, air show yesterday afternoon? You’re not alone because I also missed it. Actually I didn’t even know about it beforehand and thanks to the low profile press media! Such events shall be publicly announced on media like TV, Radio, Newspapers, Blogs, and even Google ads so people can know and get the chance to see it in person. I came back home from work at 3:30 pm and heard the roar of jets but I thought they were just moving from one air base to another.

It’s not everyday you get to see British Air Force in action. I was always a fan of Britsh Air Force, well since I ever watched documentaries on World War II, and it seems that they gave such spectacular show in Kuwait sky near Marina Mall shoreline. No wonder since they are one of the world’s premier aerobatic teams.

Luckily enough, one of our blog readers shared with us such a long video for the whole action. Also, I managed to find some shots online.

New BLS Winter Bazaar Poster edit

It’s the time of the year where we witness a surge of Christmas Bazaar’s in Kuwait. Besides the popular one that is usually held at Marina hall, there is also one held at BSK which is also annual and hosted by the British Ladies Society.

I love these bazaar’s because of the variety and diversity of booths and the number of activities that are there for the entire family!

Where: British School of Kuwait (BSK)

When: Friday, November 29th 2013


Looks like fatal fights in Kuwait are not only happening in shopping malls but are also invading football courts! I’m observing that the re-occurrence of fights in sport events are on the rise in Kuwait and no one is doing a thing!

Latest was a knives fight at Kuwait premier league under 20 that started after the last night’s match between Arabi and Kazima sports clubs. To my surprise the fight started between the players themselves and escalated by the crowd, and to make things even worse the police were non-existent to contain it! How can they even play without police or guards? I’m so sick of this chaos.

20131125_090935When I saw this news headline in the Arab times yesterday,I found it strange that the traffic department would act surprised at these news.

Any body who has driven on our roads in Kuwait, without taking into consideration the accident rates, would have wondered if half of the drivers on our roads actually have a license or rather how they got to have a license to begin with.

I definitely feel that this is huge contributing factor to road incidents in Kuwait.  What do you guys think?

Yes there’s at least one burger joint opening or closing here or there every a few weeks or so. I received an invitation to attend the opening of Big Smoke Burger at the new restaurant court located right next to The Village restaurant court in Abu Al Hassaniya (I think it’s called Divonne restaurant village). It’s a Canadian franchise from Toronto.

Unfortunately I missed to try out their burgers so I can’t tell whether they can manage to compete with all the other burger joints. I’m planning to make a new post in which I’ll compare popular burger joints over Kuwait to see who make it to the top, the score will be based on taste, price, beef quality, waiting time…etc.

I awoke earlier than usual today to a very foggy weather, it was so foggy to the point that I can’t see thing 10 meters (30ft) ahead. Coupled with strange silence it reminded me of the survival horror video game Silent Hill. I read on the news that air flights were delayed and that the fog may last for several days.

I advise you all to be extra careful while driving because of extemely poor visibility. Do any of you have any high resolution shots taken for Kuwait City, Kuwait Towers, or Al Hamra Tower in the fog?
