Funny how any app that gets popular in Kuwait either becomes a store or a show. Like when the fun run game become popular you would see fun run shows in Eid. This ‘Snap’ store is actually a juice store and was spotted by a friend who shared it on snapchat, the irony. I’m not looking forward for the next store that’s based on a popular app, normally they’re too cheesy.
Arabella (the food complex area) installed a handicapped elevator and the way to get there is by using the stairs. It’s like having a room that has a window showing a wall. I wonder if the guy behind the design got sacked or if any action was taken to fix this issue to begin with.

You find a lot of funny ads on the popular al waseet newspaper but occasionally there’s something extra special. Not only is the Kuwaiti family looking to cook an Asian driver but they are required to, gives a whole new meaning to cannibalism. For those that still didn’t get it, this was obviously a grammar mistake and the family was just looking for a driver. Newspaper was published on 7th February.
A lot of times I’m peacefully driving my car to my destination, then read what the sticker on the car infront of me says and go “wait, what?!”. Some sticker texts are beyond my limits of imagination to explain. It will always remain a mystery why a guy driving a Raptor is explaining something his gramdma has that you don’t.

Update: Mystery solved! Well that way quick.
It’s a Kuwaiti saying I didn’t know about that was translated in English, which made very little sense. The saying is “اللي عندك عند يدتي”
The meaning of the saying isn’t clear, I had 3 people explain it and each one had a completely different meaning for it.
There’s a roll-up at Kuwait’s Airport (I assume) that was done by the Ministry of Health. It’s suppose to give you tips on how to stay healthy, one of the tips stands out though. It recommends not hugging altogether, specially if you have a chronic disease. So there you have it guys, no hugging from now on and don’t forgot to avoid crowded places.

You know how when there was an app boom the sentence “There’s an app for that” become popular. Well in Kuwait, “There’s an instagram account for that” is getting there. Khe6ab announces the names of newly married couples on instagram and it’s pretty active with 1,000 likes on some of the announcements.
I think if the developers of the game Fun Run knew someone was making an entire show based on the game in Kuwait they would fly over to see it. I guess when a game goes viral, everyone tries to cash in on it. I’m guessing tickets will be sold for Eid this year in a few months.
