Out of curiosity, I was checking how Kuwait is doing in the recently updated Corruption Perceptions Index 2013, and it truly depresses me to tell you that things are getting worse. I recall our last year’s ranking was 67/177, while the new ranking is 69/177 (see above). Also according to the Transparency International Oreganization, we are the mostly currupted country among the GCC countries. Sadly I can relate to this worsening ranking in more ways than one.
Seemingly, most of the curruption is ocurring within the public sector (administration, political) and it’s daylight clear that so far we’ve done nothing (or at least not enough) to fight it back. Well, I remember reading news about Kuwait intention to appoint an anti-corruption chief and to set rigid Anti-corruption penalties that can go up to 7 years in jail, but nothing as of yet.
The Regency hotel has recently added to their list of gourmet food outlets,their very own pastry store which carries a variety of desserts from cakes to fancy,creative cakes.
The Regency Gourmet, as the new store is known, is located inside the hotel adjacent to the lobby. It also carries exclusive flavored Olive oil including the the new tea trend; flower blossom tea and naturally flavored teas.
What attracted me the most about is is that, I don’t have to to sit and have my sweets at the hotel, I can call and order in advance and it will be ready for me to pick up and leave. My favorite choices have to be the red velvet,Opera Cake and Black forest cake which has to be cracked open like an egg!
The prices are surprisingly reasonable for a place like The Regency Hotel.
I’m sure you all heard about the tragic death of Fast & Furious hunky actor and star, Paul Walker, on Saturday. He was 40. Frankly, this was a shock to me and I’m sure to all of his loyal fans and will undoubtedly leave a big gap in one of the world’s most successful movie franchises. Apparently, he died after a Porsche Carrera GT 2005 crashed into a light standard and burst in flames near Los Angeles (see below), he was the passenger.
I can’t really imagine how horrific the accident must have been since the Porsche has turned in a complete wreck, seriously scary. Now who would have ever imagined that his death would be caused by a supercar since he was all about furious and death defying racings in F&F movies. There’s no such a car that can save us from certain sudden death if we’re not always careful, million of things can go wrong at any moment of time. Farewell Paul.

Oh well, the proof is in the pudding on this one! shocking to see that a popular food outlet would do such to its loyal consumers and is still operating without having been shutdown by the health inspectors in the area. What’s Baladiya doing? Should we always wait until something really bad happens to take an action?

While passing by the Prestige at the Avenues last night I saw what seemed to be a mini museum showcasing some super expensive clothing and accessory items that were worn by celebrities. I saw under each item there was a brief description and photo of the celebrity that worn the piece. However, I’m not exactly sure if these stuff are for sale or just show.

Every year we publish about the ladies yearly racing event RoadRush which takes place at Bahrain International Circuit. This year however, a different kind of rush will take place tomorrow. The RoadRush Carnival will be held at the new Sirbb Circuit next to Ford in front of Tilal. It seems really exciting so do not miss out.
Sports direct, a new athlete clothing outlet, opened last night in Al Rai across from the avenues. The main attraction for the night was not their drop dead low prices but soccer legend Micheal Owen from England. The place was packed inside and out with fans from all ages waiting to get their chance to get a picture with the footballer and poor air conditioning didn’t really make it a pleasant wait.
While there I go to have a look at there footwear price range and must say that is it beyond reasonable. For adults the foot wear prices range between KD 5 t0 KD 39 for adults and between KD10 to KD16 for kids. So do you guys think the prices are competitive compared to other sports shops?
