iPhone 5 Hype Begins!

So now it is here ... iPhone 5 starts to hit the markets at ridiculous prices. Prices range as you can see from the ads below:

My advice is to wait as I have read that some iPhone owners have had complaints that their devices have scratches on them. You can read about that further over here.

Help Stop Animal Cruelty in Kuwait

So last night I got an opportunity to speak to a brave and extraordinary young girl who share with me heartbreaking stories about animals. Being 18 years old and having her own problems in life she still tries her best to inform people in Kuwait that animals are living things and need to be treated with love and care.

She has seen guys running over Kittens and thinking it is funny whereas it is a sin even in Islam to harm an animal. She found out that there are causes like K'SPATH shelter, petzone and Kuwait PAWS which work on helping out animals.

This brave young lady has taken care of many animals that she has found stranded and shared a story of a kitten she found stranded on the street
... The Kitten in the picture ... Is an abandoned one from the streets ... I got him at the age of 2 weeks but now he is older ..... His mom left him in the heat for 12 hours with no milk or anything
She is a hero and an inspiration to others to show compassion to animals
I once rescued a dog from our neighbor ... It was a 3 month old puppy .. He was skinny .. And he chose me .. And I took him in but they came lookin for him so I had to give him back but then 2 weeks later the puppy ran away from them again and came to me (much more skinnier) ... And I decided I won't give him back again so I kept him and named him JACK ... Took care of him and gave him some proteins ... Vitamins food and he got chubby. Taking care of Jack is hard as I had to study as well so I gave him to my cousin for a few months ... I felt bad because my cousins neighbors hated mutts and threw Jack (GSD MIX) Off the Roof ... Jack was 6 months old at the time and fainted for half an hour. I got so pissed and yelled at my cousin ... And then again ... The neighbor killed a dog by forcing him to drink dettol ... Yeah he's an Ahole!!! He killed his own female pitbull and killed a husky by hitting him so BAD. And he tried to kill Jack but couldn't as Jack is an angel and survived being hit badly. People here don't care and I don't like that. I got Jack after he was hit .. When he saw me he barked and howled and whined and I felt bad for him but now I got a good home for him. Gave him to Americans .. And not long ago I seen them walking Jack and he was happy and healthy and I was glad I gotta chance to help. Because there are too many heartless people in this World and if not me?? I don't know when will people here speak up. This needs to be revealed and the truth must come out.

You know ... I lost my puppy and he went missing for 11 days and I didn't give up because I love him too much to give up on him ... And I found him .. After finding Igor (my puppy) I micro-chipped him and got him a new collar and a Tag which has his name and my number from behind so now I won't loose him ... I love all my pets ... Jessie (white terrier mix), Moki (the abandoned kitten), Taffy (my Siamese), Igor (my pitbull puppy) and all other animals. I am still 18 ... And I have my own problems in life ... Having problems I am still standing strong ... Helping others. My Pets keep me strong. I was saved by dogs twice .. And know I am ready to put my life in danger just to save a pet. My relatives whom I live with hate animals and yet I fight SUPER HARD for them. They are the ones keeping me happy, safe and alive all of them. I have rescued 1 angora bunny, and my pets are 2 fish 2 cats 2 dogs and soon I'm getting 2 mice.
This little girl is such an inspiration and amazing to say the least. Most 18 year olds aren't as matured as she is. It is true that many people in Kuwait are ignorant but there are some who have tried to increase awareness as to what is happening. LWDLIK, AGW, DG and bananaq8 are some examples and there are many more. I was actually looking for one in specific but cannot seem to find it. Oh well this will do for now. I wish her the best of luck and I want to help her out as best as I can :)

Update: The story continues as the brave girl would also like to share the videos she made :)

Stick with ONE

So recently read Expat and the City about having a second, third or fourth wife. I thought that it wasn't a big deal as it is allowed in Islam for a man to marry another woman under certain specification of course. Then I read this recently in Arab Times:

Man comes home to wife and in an intimate moment she takes out a knife and stabs him in the shoulder :/
KUWAIT CITY, July 11: A case of murder attempt has been filed against a Kuwaiti woman after she allegedly stabbed her husband with a knife following reports he had married another woman, reports Al-Shahed daily.
In his complaint to the Jabriya Police Station the husband said his wife stabbed him in the shoulder and that he managed to escape from her.

A police source when the husband arrived at the police station clutching his hand blood dripping from his shirt, fainted at the entrance and he was rushed to the Mubarak Al-Kabir Hospital.

The wife will be summoned for interrogation.

I was shocked but then I remembered that I heard a similar story before. As a guy I would recommend most men to communicate with your spouse before getting into trouble. Don't you want to live a peaceful life, stress free?? And as you own one heart it is clear you can only truly love one woman. I am still trying to think about how she could have stabbed him that way. She must have been really mad to be the last one to have found out.

Fires ... A mystery to say the least

So Walking around in the city looking for a job. Tower after tower giving out CVs and learning how tough it really is to get the job you want. Anyways after a while I came to this tower which looks pretty new. Wow it's empty? :O Entering the building I notice the doors are locked. Maybe a back entrance? Let me see!! When I was at the building I thought it must be some Men In Black cover up you know: CIA undercover/Alien protection agency since no way no one can be in a building.

 Anyways, it turns out the building is burnt. O o It is a mystery to me how so many building end up burning and how come this one didn't have any safety signs to inform others that it isn't safe to enter.

I wish no one got hurt and good luck. Ironically this is an insurance company and they cover damages.

I have been curious about a mystery in college that puzzles me until today. Having spent 4 years in college I never expected to find this on my car:

Yes you got it right. A NOTE :O lodged under the flap that opens the door. I was shocked and yet intrigued that someone fancied me in college. I wanted to know who? where? how? what? ME?

I am not a guy that sticks out in public or someone a woman would look at and feel like she would find me interesting. In this World these days looks count for everything and that is something I don't have. (I have been called cute and handsome but that's just friends trying to bring my moral up).

Well unfortunately this note is an investigation case that I can't seem to close up. I have had it analyzed by a friend and he thinks it's a prank one of my friends are playing (97% male) and that the person who wrote it is left handed. Oh wait I think I might know who it is? :O No it can't be ... I asked him :(

Anywayz, this note is going into my box of memorabilia of things that I have collected that are private and personal (I used to be a kid once and heck yeah in love like crazy but it never works out and why get hurt or hurt someone else?).

How would you go by finding out who it is? What would you do?

Keifan Bridge Under Construction

It looks like Keifan Bridge is under construction unless Godzilla was in Kuwait and I missed the whole thing :p

It would have been interesting to see how they dismantled the bridge but maybe next time. I wonder how much is being spent on this project, anyone any ideas??

Something to do: Jet Ski

 Jet Skiing is something very fascinating to do in Kuwait. I admit i cannot swim but I enjoyed going to the sea with my buddies on the jet ski. (Although at one point I somersaulted three times in the air and landed in the sea :p) Damn it's hard to get back on the thing when you're out of breath, heavy and tired but you can do it.

The Good

  • You're having fun with your mates and you don't feel the time pass by.
  • You get the tan you wish if that's what you want (Use Bananaboat)
  • Did I mention it is extremely fun if the weather is right.
  • Doing something different for a change that isn't as boring.
    Just a note: Keep your life jacket on at all times! If the coast guards see you without one you could get fined

The Bad
  • If you're a girl you'd expect to be chased by guys (not me but others)
  • The sea isn't as clean as it should be
  • Keep in the sea and take caution when close to the shallow areas.
  • Don't go alone, rather go with a group of friends
  • Wear something to protect your eyes (sunglasses/goggles)
  • Protect yourself from the sun-rays (Sun Block)

With all my experiences I would say that I will do it again and again just not as crazy the next time. As you know Kuwait is known for being on sex steroids. I have heard stories where guys take the gals on the jet ski and have intercourse with them in the middle of the sea where no one can say anything. So women please be careful.

Just some other pictures to go with the topic that I find very humorous:

I am unsure if this is in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi or Oman but it is a fully covered woman on a jet ski. How awesome is that.


Honestly mate I like where your head is at.

I'm sure many girls wouldn't mind being on the jet ski with him hahaha :p


Other water entertainment though I think this is fake.

A day of Adventure

So a few days ago my brother and I didn't feel like sleeping 4 AM so we decided to go out :p We started the adventure with a walk on the Gulf Road to get some fresh air and to plan what to do next. I couldn't believe how relaxing it is to watch the sun rise with just the hint of cool breeze brushing on the skin and messing my hair up :D Anywayz we were clueless (oh yeah and there is a lot of litter and cats on thee beach side) Well just as we got in to go back home I decided the time is not to learn about Kuwait. So I filled up the tank and we were off driving on the 5th Ring Road or was it 6th Ring Road all the way to the End. Here are some of the picture I took ... I know the pictures aren't as great as they could have been. I used my Blackberry :p

This is an awesome architectural construction but I don't know what it is.There was a lot of sand on the road too and I don't recommend going alone as we did get stuck and I had to push us out or else we would have been left in the middle of nowhere

The desert was all we could see with what looks like small hills

There is a lot of land and yet I don't get why we need to live like squashed human beings? And don't say because this is how it is in Arab countries ... United Arab Emirates !!!

I wonder what my mum would think if I ended becoming a Shepherd ... Most likely she would get annoyed as the degree is worthless in the desert unless you needed toilet paper xD Hahaha

If you see closely I think you can just about see a bridge that is going to be used by many business men in 2022 to go to Boubyan Island to visit the new Silk City that is under construction ... can't wait

After driving towards Boubyan Island there was a dead end due to the Subiya Power Plant. Only way was to come back and then go straight the other way towards Iraq. I guess we got to the border but I won't be going to Iraq anytime soon. Though I want to go ... beautiful country to say the least.

Short detour to Abdaly Farms where we seen .... wait for it ...... CAMELS :)) Yaayyy for me

After about 6 hours in the desert we decided it was time to return to Kuwait and go home. What an exciting adventure :) I will be doing it again someday I hope.

Job Hunt

So as some of you may know I have graduated from university ... finally. I have been very busy these past few days reading up on how to get myself a job that is worthy of the degree and the knowledge and skills that I have learnt and developed. I have worked on creating an online CV here as well as working on a hard copy CV to better my chances of success.

I have already submitted my CV to several reputable corporation and await to hear from them soon In Shaa Allah. If anyone can help me by pointing me in the right direction then I would be very grateful. I thank one of the anonymous readers who gave me a link to a job vacancy and that's all thanks to the publicity of 965malls.

I know for a fact that the job market in Kuwait is very competitive and influence (wasta) plays a major factor in getting the right job but lets see if I can get something without that just for now.
