I posted 9 months ago that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be coming to Kuwait for the grand opening of Gold’s Gym. I sat with Gold’s Gym staff yesterday touring the place before they open a few months from now (they even have a Carido Cinema). They’ve confirmed they are still under negotiation to bring Arnold and possibly a few more celebrities like The Rock for the grand opening.
According to officials there are more than 1.2 million cars in Kuwait, and that’s way too much for a country this small. Their solution is to limit cars owned per resident. Each Kuwaiti gets up to 2 cars and each expat will get one car. An additional car over your limit will cost you KD 100. I still don’t know if that’s a one time fee or not.
Officials also mentioned this isn’t their only plan, “there are several short-term and long-term plans and strategies as well”. I guess most Kuwaitis wouldn’t care, if you can afford three cars, you can afford a KD 100 fee. I really do hope this cuts down on traffic, although I doubt it. [Source]
To be frank I wouldn’t go about hugging strangers in Saudi Arabia so I’m sure he knew he’d likely get in trouble for it. He was arrested on the charges of indulging in exotic practices and offending public order. It’s worth noting he was only hugging other men and the majority looked accepting of the situation.
“I liked the idea and thought it could bring happiness to Saudi Arabia.” - Mr Swed
I guess stuck in jail wasn’t what he had in mind when he was thinking about happiness. You have to spread happiness very discreetly my friend.[Source]
It was just a matter of time till what happened in Riyath happens in Kuwait. Jabirya has it’s electricity shutdown right now. The picture I’ve posted right now are from
Jabriya and Ahmedi all over Kuwait but I’m sure each area it’s going to take turns in getting flooded. Qurtoba’s streets are also flooding, filled with cockroaches I might add because the rain went in and out the sewage taking all the cockroaches out with it.
Here’s what the Avenues looks like:
This is much more serious than I initially thought. I’m getting images from twitter of users taking photos in Riyadh right now and it looks like the entire city is drowning. Weather experts are saying Kuwait is going to rain heavily for the entire weekday so I can’t imagine how bad it’s going to get.
Here’s a gallery of photos being shared on twitter:
- I understand you are upset over Ethiopian rape crimes in Saudi but please don’t generlize an entire country based on a few people’s actions.
- Most of your comments I cannot make public as they’re either rude, too biased or insult Islam (over 50 comments)
- I am not the Saudi Government so please do not address me as such, I’m a blog in Kuwait.
- This weather is going around the GCC area and is not limited to Saudi Arabia
For new teachers that come from another country to pursue their career, they might be surprised how undisciplined some students are. One of the new teachers got so upset with a student chewing gum she stuck the gum in the student’s hair and later got fired for it. I understand students need to be punished, but not humiliated in front of their friends.[Source]
When I wrote about Omar I questioned the credibility of the news and as it turns out I wasn’t too far from the truth. After becoming well-known worldwide and touring the world (along with getting a Mercedes as a gift) he recently admitted to a Mexican magazine he was never deported for being too handsome.
“Really I was walking around, I ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time,“
After Mutawa Alkazi got stripped from Honda franchise which was given to Alghanim they recently bought a new car brand. The SUV above at Mutawa Alkazi showroom was manufactured by GAC, they’re a Chinese automaker that also manufactures vehicle parts for Fiat, Honda, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, and Toyota. Might grab one to review soon.
