On more than one occasion I’ve noticed some buses with really reckless driving that could really cause a bad accident ! Ok I know hyper speeds, crossing red lights, using messaging and car flirting are also major reasons, but reckless public buses seem to be another arising reason.

Today on the 3rd ring road, I was waiting in-line for my turn to take the U-turn, when a bus that I thought was going straight suddenly turned to get into the line, it seemed as if the bus driver didn’t want to wait, I had to push on  the brake quickly to give him clearance other wise he won’t stop !

What made it worse is that he was careless enough to not even give a  turning signal, thankfully I was alert. Beware of reckless buses !

Hard fighting gamers will enjoy this news ! Freeze Club at 360 Mall will organize a competition in the fighting game Marvel Vs Capcom 3 next Thursday at 6:00 pm, competitors of all ages are welcome.

Guess what the prize will be ? Its going to be the new Nintendo 3DS with 2 new games ! I really wish I can play and win :(

I spoke with the organizer today and he said you can either register by phone or in-person, he also said that interested people can come to play the game and prepare for the competition. If you win, give me the 3DS and enjoy the glory ;)

As we all know that environment, water & electricity conservation have all became so vital to our future in Kuwait. We suffered really bad in the last few years and we had electricity and water automatically cut on many areas in Kuwait.

Does summer 2011 have a surprise in the closet for us ? To answer all these questions, we paid a little visit to the Environment, Water, and Energy Conference and Exhibition at Kuwait International fair today at 10:00 am.

First am glad to see that companies and authorities are starting to adopt the green concept and participate in green exhibitions. There were new technologies for producing cleaner energy such as using the windmills and solar power.

There were also companies with smart green solutions to help our environment such as using bio-degradable environment friendly materials and encourage the re-use concept.

Though it was sad how people paid little attention to attend such an important exhibition, my point is no technology can help us if we can’t help ourselves first, we must have that sense of responsibility toward all these challenges.

Also I liked this idea from a new car washing and detailing company called “WALESS”, they use minimal amount of water and environmental friendly cleansers to wash your car and make it shine like glass, excellent idea !

If only car wash centers in Kuwait use the same concept then we will really save millions of water gallons ! The Environment Public Authority and Ministry of Water should encourage such companies.

I believe the most powerful solution to preserve energy, water  and environment lies within “US”, if we start to learn how to be responsible and thankful enough, then only we can save our Kuwait, our home !

Note: The exhibition will continue until tomorrow.

I came to know that soon they will have Metro and Rail Conference & Exhibition in Kuwait on 19th and 20th of April. I have posted about the insights for the upcoming Kuwait metro project before.

As we can all see, the traffic congestions in Kuwait are reaching unbearable level, and government temporary solutions that include the re-design of the highs ways and ring roads (Such as the 1st ring road in-progress project) to sustain higher traffic volume will not completely solve the issue.

Ithink the time for metro use in Kuwait had come because in less than 10 years and based on the yearly increase of autos in Kuwait we can no longer rely on cars with the terrible traffic jams.

Personally I’ll make sure to attend the exhibition to get more idea on this essential project and its vision and mission.

Where: Radisson Blue Hotel

When: 19th 20th April, 2011.

Time: 09:30 am

“The Bloom” is a short Kuwaiti film made by the creative group BioFilms, and was one  of the films that competed in Kuwait Young Film Contest. Even though it wasn’t on the winners list, I find it very creative.

I’m happy that Kuwaiti 7th Art is developing fast, we wish to have true Kuwaiti cinema.

This must be one of the longest days of my life, going in detail will take forever ! But let me tell you about the weird part, our super computer stopped working for a reason I can’t yet realise.

I took it to the workshop but again he couldn’t explain what was wrong, and you know all of our important files are stored on it, Also we could not post anything, it seems computer and blogging just don’t mix :p :(

Well, I wanted a quick solution, so I headed to Al Ghanim Payless electronics store in Shuwaikh to buy a computer.

There were good laptops with reasonable prices, I also saw a MacBook Air for 350 K.D but I still prefer PC’s :)

So I found a good HP laptop for 280 K.D and decided to buy it. I made a short video for the laptop and the unboxing. I tried to transfer the old hard disk contents to the new computer, buy guess what ? I keep getting a message “You don’t have permission to access files”, so the game ain’t finish yet !

54 year old, Cindy Jackson, takes plastic surgeries to the extreme with over 52 procedures with total cost of $100,000 (30,000 K.D), including 14 full-scale operations as well as cuts, pulls, peels and jabs. She also had Botox, five face-lifts and liposuction, and  her eyes have been done – twice !

This brings an important issue in Kuwait because I’m seeing more and more girls with really bad plastic surgeries done. I’ve seen girls with really odd looking noses, ugly dimples, odd looking botox injected lips and cheeks, and badly tattooed brows.What really impresses me though is that most only care about the cheaper price to decide which surgeon to choose, neglecting how dangerous this could be.

I think many girls are having issues with insecurities and vanity rather than big nose, small lips, cheeks. Surgeries using the knife should be the last resort, because it may actually end up looking worse and its also very addictive. Remember, if someone can tell you had a cosmetic surgery, then it means it was a failure because it has to look natural.

We went for to the newly soft-opened “THE CONFECTIONERS SHOP” today at Al-Tilal complex in Shuweikh area. The Confectioners Shop is a new Kuwaiti-based concept for Confectioneries.

The shop had opened a few days ago, and it is run and managed by two young energetic Kuwaiti girls. I had a nice chat with the owners and had asked them several questions about their idea.

Their story is fairly unique, they started making sweets like cookies and dips as a hobby, then they found that their sweets were admired by many, so they had chocolate classes in Switzerland.

When they came back to Kuwait, they opened their own shop. I liked how one of them works as a manager and other works as the chef.

Currently they serve the following:

Cookies: Honey nut and oat, mint chocolate, chocolate chip, chocolate nut.

Dipped strawberries: Marshmallow and cookies, dark chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate.

They said that they will soon have more Confectioneries added to their menu.

I tried their cookies and dipped strawberry with milk chocolate and cookies and it tasted really delicious. I also liked how they had homy and cozy interior design with nice decorations.

Their packaging looked cute and neat.

Currently, they are not fully opened , but am sure when they are 100% opened, the shop will look amazing. As for the prices, 1 dozen of dipped chocolates costs 8 K.D.

Address: Tilal Complex -Shuweikh.

Phone: +965 97736445

Opening times: 6 pm – 10:00 pm
