A post for the ladies

So recently I was asked a question but one of the ladies on one of the social apps. The question was simple and it was with the following picture.

Which one do you like?
Well firstly I understand that women want to look incredible as they should but most women don't realize that each men have their own preference. I for one told her that I would prefer the 30% or 35% and can even go over that. She said that quite a few of the guys gave her the same answer but then she said that most women think that what they see in the magazines of a woman's body between 15-17% is what men want to see. Well it does depend on preference but wait a minute why does looks have to matter? I understand that you want to look like a model but is that really normal? I had a friend back in school and she was thin and beautiful but she suffered from Body Dismorphic Disorder. She was thin but she felt she was fat and kept on dieting until she lost it one day and fainted. Be happy with your body I guess :)

The lady talked to me further and asked me what if the woman is excessively obese. I believe at this point I told her that size doesn't matter and sent her this that I found from one of the other users.

Now what I believe: A persons look can change easily through exercise and diet but what is inside is hard to change. Truth be told it varies as a guy can at first have wanted to fool around with a woman and take advantages of her vulnerabilities but then actually ends up falling in love with her. There is a very old story that was when a boy met a girl online and they fell in love without looking at appearance when they finally met he was scared that he wouldn't like the way she looked and when he seen her from afar he hid behind a tree for a while as he wasn't attracted to her. In his mind there was all those thoughts about how much they loved each other and that looks wasn't everything. When he approached her he found out it wasn't her but her friend who was waiting to deliver the message that she was going to be late. When she finally showed up she was beautiful. Anyway I got carried away :p back to the post.

Final point is on the picture here. Beauty comes in all sizes and I am sharing it with you all as I agree with it. When it comes to myself *yeah yeah I am chubby* then I think about the words below which bring a smile to my face.

A question to all who read this. What is your input on this subject?

Inspiration from an Inspiring individual

Abdullah Malik
I have realized that most of my posts have been on a negative side but today is a whole new setting. I have recently found out about a long distance runner named Abdullah Malik. He is a Kuwaiti but he lives in USA. So now what is so special about this individual? Well simply put he has a passion for running after his dreams.
The picture to the right is of my friend before and after. He used to weigh approximately 140 kilos when he was 17 years old and then he dropped down to 80 kilos. The secret is simple: Atkins diet. Abdullah didn't have it easy but his passion for focusing on his dream made him become who he is. The article below talks about how he met the man who he considered to be the 'fastest runner in the world' and this builds up ones hope to do something extraordinary in life. I have had that feeling before and it drives you to feel that everything is possible. Need to get my mojo back in the words of Auston Powers :p This my friends proves that there is a lot of potential amongst the generations of young adults in the world. When you have a passion and have a commitment then you should not stop until you attain what makes you happy. We live life once so why not live it to the maximum.

Below are two English articles and if anyone is interested to share their story please do let me know.

Kuwait going downhill

Just as you think things will get better you seen something that really works on your mind.

I haven't shared this on the blog before but I was searching for true love in the wrong places. I ended up on social apps like eBuddy XMS, Kik Messenger, Palringo, Nimbuzz, WhosHere, Say Hi!, Skout, Badoo, Banjoo, Live Profile and the list goes on and on and on.

Here is the problem. You will find out that many of the women are Arabs and cannot really marry an Expat. These women are mainly there because they're bored and have nothing else to do. Some of them are horny and will sleep with almost anyone for a certain amount of money. (Not if you're a bedoo or a police officer) You will find Filipinos who have a nice personality but don't trust easily and this is because of all the lies the Arab guys feed them. A major problem I go through daily is the racism from people who have brains the size on the seed of an olive. Many of the guys and gals I have had the opportunity to speak to have immediately judged based on looks. I am Arab. My mixture is so complex that I can easily state I am a global citizen and since when has nationality become a big part of who people are. I fear people are lost and don't know how to think right. A person like me is not limited to one part of the world as my family originally used to be philanthropists and thus my background is spread over most of the continents which go from Europe, to Africa and into the Middle East and Asia. Please don't judge with your eyes.

Another thing I have noticed in Kuwait and the GCC is that due to the sick segregation which slowly is starting to cool off but still present in society is causing the society to become sick. I don't know if families are proud of raising lesbians and gays? Because the percentage of lesbians and gays in comparison to countries like the US are higher among the Arab regions. This is becoming worse as there is something known as Booyat which are girls who want to be boys and she males which are guys who are becoming girls.

Finally and this is the most depressing, a young lady on WhosHere had a question to the members of the app which I screenshot to prove we are living in a weird society.
Translation: Please respond !!
                  Please whom ever knows a doctor or clinic that closes an open woman should tell.

This is a shocker! To see a 20 year old girl who is asking for this.

Based on A True Love Story

This was something I heard from someone I know and it is based on a true story but from my perception.

So it starts off with a guy who one day decided that he wants to find his soul mate. He always imagined her and dreamt of her regularly but every-time he was out and about he didn't seem to find her. One day walking through an alley way in a market he stopped as he looked into a mirror which reflected a woman who was from his dreams. He was shocked and wanted to know more. Walking through the alley way his heart began to beat faster and faster as he tried to spot her. Reaching to the end of the alley he was shocked to see she was gone. He kept on walking back and forth trying to see if he may have passed her but this day his luck ran short as she left. His heart felt the missing connection of his soul mate who he was anxious to have in his life. The feeling of his heart longing to be loved and taken by another. The mutual love between the right two people. Day and night he couldn't stop thinking about what he seen in that alleyway. It was a drive for him to go and try the next day and the day after and the day after that as well. This carried on for about one year where he would go back to that alleyway and pass by that mirror to see if he could see her. After one year of passing by he finally seen a glimpse of her once again on the mirror and this time he ran through the alley way looking at all the sides and cracks to find her. Well he did finally lay eyes on her beautiful bright face and that was when his heart was at peace. He went up to her and introduced himself to which she was surprised as she felt that she saw him before as well. She didn't tell him though. They walked for a while and he told her about how he first saw her and for the past year he would come to this place to see her once more. She was flattered by his pursue to find her and in return blushed and smiled while they were walking. They were only acquaintances but had a bond together that gave others the impression they have been together for a very long period. The relationship grew as they met each other everyday and started to truly fall in love their hearts joining and becoming one. She could sense when he was thinking about her and he could tell when she missed her. This was a match made in heaven and he felt he was ready. Ready to go to her father and ask for her hand in marriage. At this stage the girl had known of her fathers plans to give her to another and wouldn't accept any other man and especially when the man is a simple person. She was scared of her father finding out or even worse. Breaking her soul mates heart for good. She tried to tell her family but in a society where a man and woman who are seen loving one another out the sanctimony of marriage was seen negatively and could ruin her status as well as her families. With the pain brewing in her heart she decided to end the relationship with him even though she knew she couldn't live without him. He was heartbroken if not worse and couldn't imagine a life without her. Love is all about risk no matter what the end result. Soul mates are meant for each other and eventually they find each other. He couldn't accept it but he had to say yes. It was the end of the relationship but they were unable to live apart. He said he had to try and thus started to search for her father. She could sense him and she herself couldn't cope living without him but knew that there would be major consequences. He approached her father and asked him for her hand in marriage. The father was devastated when his daughter also came to him and said I love him and he is the man I am destined for. In this instance the father had the son executed as well as his daughter. This is the ending to the true story. I believe that they got what they wanted as surely they are in Heaven together forever and true love prevails even if the ending in this life isn't exactly what we expect.

City of Life

I recently got the privilege to watch this film and I must say it is a real eye opener. Produced in 2009, I was told it wasn't allowed to air in cinemas. It is an Emirati film based in Dubai and directed by Ali F. Mostafa. The film revolves around three people, one a young Arab man who is rich with his street smart friend; the other an Indian taxi driver who who has dreams of becoming a famous film star and resembles one of the famous Bollywood stars; finally a flight attendant who used to be a ballet dancer and is in search for love and companionship.

The film talks about how in one city there are different cultures and livelihoods similar to what can be experienced in any Gulf country. Dubai is the city known for opportunities and growth where dreams are encouraged and come true. I won't give any more details as you need to watch it for yourselves.

The long wait was over. I have been waiting for grandcinemas to open up for a long time and when I heard it was supposed to open up during sometime last year I went only to be disappointed and escorted out of the building because it was postponed. This time I waited until it was certain and it was. The best thing about it was that they were showing the new James Bond film Skyfall. We all know what a fanatic I can be when it comes to James Bond (You too The Godfather :p) Well anywhoo, I had an argument with mother and decided to patch things up by taking her out for a great day. We started the day late by having dinner at the Green Apple in Sharq. The food was exquisite, we had Lebanese food. It wasn't busy and the atmosphere was just like you felt you were sitting somewhere elegant.

After the food we had a short drive when we realized Kuwait is busy during Eid. I must admit there is a lot to do in Kuwait so we decided to leave the busy streets and head for Al-Hamra Tower. It is the tallest tower in Kuwait as well as looks beautiful with the pink lights. We had a walk inside and realized hey they have a film and why not watch it. We chose the film for 12:45am which is late but the crowd was bearable. Waiting for the film we decided to go to Chocolate Bar to grab dessert only to see it packed jam and guys standing around waiting for a table to sit at. We decided maybe some other time and went upstairs to Gelatissimo which was yumm yumm. After that we went and watched the film. I loved it apart from the censorship. I hate censorship and that is why I stay out of cinemas in Kuwait. I would prefer if the cinemas had the age group rankings like 18+ and so on so that we could watch the film in peace. I was glad mum had a blast and I am sorry to have started an argument with mother dearest. Hoping everyone is having a grand Eid.

Update: To know more about their timings you can visit here but as their website is under maintenance you can find their schedule for next week here. Courtesy of ilsul6ana.

What's New

Ok so I was bored last night and decided to try and work on an interesting header for the blog. As you can see this is the new header for now and I am not impressed with my skills.

I want to thank reader S for his support in helping me out. I will be working on a better header but it needs some time. Any suggestions/advice or help would be greatly appreciated from the readers.

You may also have noticed that there is a search tool now to help out in finding specific posts in my blog as well as a short list of the commentators on the blog. I am thankful and appreciate all the comments that I receive from the lovely readers of TKG.

TKG wishes you all a happy Eid Mubarak and the days to come to be filled with happiness, joy and fun. Have a great day with your family and friends.

I found this picture that best explains the problem in Kuwait and that is MANAGEMENT. I just graduated from university and find it appalling how if something goes wrong there is always someone else to blame and the other blames someone else leading to a whole line of blame. If management was better in Kuwait like it was back in the days then Kuwait would be on the way of becoming a country that is better then any other place on the globe. It is time to change this problem and to improve management by reducing the amount of incompetent people businesses employ. What do you think?
