A friend shared this photo on Facebook, spotted in UAE. Some stores are giving away necessities free of charge for those who can’t afford to pay for them during the holy month of Ramadan. Places like Sultan Center and Carrefour should be contacted to have something similar, I for one am willing to donate for this cause.
I don’t know what the connection is between animals and Qurtoba Co-op but it’s strong. Two years ago I caught a cat running around the same co-op and took her home with me. This time it’s a dog just sitting there while security and management are confused on why he’s there and how to approach him.[Source]
Two years ago I posted about Co-Ops in Kuwait stopping Kinder Surprise and switching to Kinder Joy. The reasons weren’t clear but Kinder Surprise does pose public healthy risks since a kid may unknowingly choke on the object. I was surprised to find it in Qurtoba C0-Op for a hefty 295 fils. The stock they’re bringing is from Belgium, so it won’t be lasting long.
I noticed Alpha has been pushing to open convenient stores in their gas stations. Oula was supposed to have a burger king and supermarket in their gas stations but that never happened. It’s about time we have a mini-supermarket in stations. I think Kuwait is the only country lacking behind on this. Wonder how long it’ll take before it’s functional.
Not only do we have to go through a dusty weather, now things are going out of stock because of the customs strike. I did recommend earlier each person buys a cow and keeps it in his Dewaniya, but that’s not very practical. What saddens me is the lack of locally made products on market shelves. We don’t even have dairy products any more.
I decided to get a ready made dessert from the supermarket rather than having home-made(link) dessert. I’d say it’s really not worth it, this small plain trifle cup from Diet Care costs 990fils. I passionately hate it’s plastic packaging, its the type that gets you so aggressive trying to open it you end up cutting yourself. I’m going with Kanafani next time.
It was around 2:20am when I passed by the supermarket to get some cold Netscape. When I went outside I saw an old man that appeared to be talking to himself shooing an animal. When he came closer turned out a kitten was following him all the way from his house, and we was freaking out about it. The kitten was so attached to him I think she thought he was her mother. He held my arm and told me to take her away from him.
He went inside the supermarket and she followed him inside. So then the staff tried to capture her and I pulled out my phone to shoot a video. I eventually took her home and would love to keep her but can’t as cats aren’t allowed where I reside. She was water starved and exhausted, sleeping right now. Please adopt her if you can.
Update: We took her to a veterinarian doctor yesterday for a check-up to see if she’s well. Decided to go to the one that’s next to the Friday Market and it was much better than I imagined it to be. Fortunately she was not infected with any diseases but she does have a fever which should go away soon.
She also needs more food containing vitamins, he said she looked pretty pale. He also cleaned her face from dust and injected her with two needles. I’m not sure about giving her away anymore, I keep getting more attached day by day progressively. Might call her fate, since it best matches her story.
