I sometimes wonder if Kuwait is the only country with embarrassing spelling mistakes in government domains. I was browsing the government’s Public Prosecution website when I noticed this. The website has been supposedly running for more than 4 years now, surprised no one pointed it out to them.[Link]
Well this is interesting, a restaurant that only serves 1 person per table just opened up in Germany. It’s almost a taboo to go have lunch at a public area alone, people say it just feels wrong. The whole objective of the restaurant is to break that taboo and show people there is nothing wrong with eating solo.
I was one of the first to switch telecoms after number portability was enabled between telecoms in Kuwait. To my surprise after reaching UAE my line didn’t switch to Etisalat or Du, it just had no signal. I tried everything, including manually selecting a telecom but nothing worked. Turns out if you switch to another telecom you no longer having roaming or data roaming services, and I don’t know when this issue will be resolved.
I read on CrazyinKuwait about supplies being stolen from M.O.H, likely by workers there and later being sold at the Friday Market where you don’t need a permit to sell. You can just showcase what you have available and someone will pass by and buy it from you. The adhesive plasters above show items labelled “M.O.H Kuwait”. There were also cervical collar and X-ray detectable swabs being sold.
I wrote about this shirt and the NASA heat regulation technology it uses a few weeks back, you can read more about it [here]. I’ve worn the shirt a few times and before talking about the heat technology it’s worth noting the fabric is very unique, the shirt is anti-odor and forever wrinkle-free. Feels great on skin.
As for the heat absorbing fabric, I did feel less heat walking outside when it was around 40 C but what I didn’t feel was the shirt releasing the heat when in a cold area to balance my body temperature, to me it did the important part of absorbing it. Maybe I need to try it more to really feel the difference, not sure.
What disappointed me was right after I wore it a few times with light duty some threads of the fabric started distorting, right now there are at least 3 distorted threads. The shirt was suppose to withstand heavy duty with no problems.
I haven’t spilled coffee or juice on my shirt but I found this video on YouTube of a guy that did. Any stain is easily removed by pouring water on the shirt and rubbing it for a couple of minutes with some soap. For those interested in buying one, the shirt comes in light blue and white.[Website]
I found out about Small Q8 recently, it’s a website that lets you showcase and sell your product/service if you own a small business. I asked them about fees and they said right now everything they offer is free of charge. To apply as a business click [here]. This can come in handy for small start-ups.[Website]
This is such a confusing subject. First you read some expats are having their phones searched for skype or viber by authorities, if found they get deported (source). Then you have the Minister of Communications announcing no VOIP apps will be blocked from smartphones (source). I’m using KEMS at home and Skype is blocked, although I heard some internet providers don’t have it blocked.
الحكومة تزيل السيارات المهملة اذا تركت سيارتك في مكان ما داخل الكويت حتى و لو كانت مصحوبة بمعلومات عنك بهدف بيعها فمن الافضل ان تقلها فقد بدا تنفيذ حملة ازالة السيارات المهملة و المعروضة للبيع. لم تمت ازالة ٤٢ سيارة من سوق الجمعة تتضمن تلك المعروضة للبيع. (المصدر)
