Since today is national day, thought it was relevant. There are over 100 360 degree images of Kuwait in 360 cities website, some of them are really good. Those who have never been to Kuwait can take a good insight on what it looks with a scent of Kuwait’s atmosphere. To browse the 360° images click [here].
As a guy, I get really annoyed when someone flirts in front of me while driving. They block the road with their car, they generate traffic and they act like idiots for the most part. So I can’t even imagine how annoying it is being a girl that’s tailed for 20 minutes and getting signals from the guy behind you to stop.
That is what happened to one girl who couldn’t take it any longer. She stopped her car so the guy assumed she was ready to take his number. When he reached her door, she lowered the window and stabbed him 3 times then waited for police to arrive. The guy was taken to Al Mubarak Hospital.
I don’t support violence or how she handled the situation but I can understand how frustrated she was, specially with some girls having to deal with this on a daily basis. I guess the guy won’t be giving out his number any time soon.[Source]
According to Gulf News the average Kuwaiti family spends KD 3,723 every month, 14% of that budget is spend on food, nothing new there. Families also spent less than 4% on health care and education, mostly because the government pays for both. I wonder what’s the average of the other GCC countries.[Source]
The Breakfast Club’s first branch was in Fintas, they were open until 3p.m everday serving breakfast. They’ve now expanded and opened a new branch in Kuwait City a few weeks back, so I passed by to review the place now that they also serve dinner and lunch. I like how they somehow managed to have pancakes as main courses with heavy sauces. continue reading»
They use to be an online store but they’ve expanded to opening a store a the Avenues. I once posted about them when they released a new collection that included the cool red rooster. When I passed by yesterday they have just released their summer collection which includes “Greetings from Arabia” shirt. Their prices are pretty reasonable and I like the fact that owner is doing most of the designing.
To celebrate Kuwait’s National and Liberation day Wataniya turned their new building into a huge screen showcasing a video about Kuwait. The video starts at 7p.m everyday and will go on until the 28th of February. No idea how they pulled it off but looks much better when you’re there seeing it live. I wish I could play Battlefield 3 on a screen this big, I would never lose a match.
When it’s not summer holiday, and all the electric supply is working fine; Kuwait looks stunning from space. The closer you get to Kuwait City the brighter and more crowded it becomes. You can easily notice the curly line of the 7th Ring Road. The photo was taken by NASA on August 9th, 2012 with a Nikon D3S digital camera using a 400 mm lens.[Source]

Spotted this the other day while heading to Kuwait City. I’m not sure what the government is using it for but I guess they’re testing running low energy lights or scanners using solar energy? I’ve never seen it before so I’m hoping it’s something we’re going to see a lot of soon. Instead of receiving an SMS every week saying Kuwait has maxed energy consumption why doesn’t the government work to push solar energy in the hottest country on this planet?
