Sorry you had to scroll down so much, but I wanted everyone to see how much Zain wants me to get their Ramadan offer. I don’t know if it’s just me, keeping in mind that I’m unsubscribed from all Zain ads and promotions, yet I’m spammed with this. There’s a lot to like about Zain, this not being one of them.
It’s one thing to build a game inspired by a popular game, and another to have a complete in-your-face rip-off of a game. I’m a big Clash Royale fan and was shocked when I found out about Tribal Mania, which is basically the same game except they hired a graphic designer to design different characters, to not, you know, have it as copy-paste and risk being taken off the Google Play Store.
I was just tweeting the other day, how I was walking from my car to the office only to realize my ice cream disappeared and I had a milkshake instead. It’s crazy hot, and this only makes it worse for the cleaners outside, please sympathise with them and help them in any way whether it’s a small tip or cold water. The only hotter spot ironically is called Death Valley, in California.
Last week the temperature reached 54C, which is a very common temperature in Kuwait, I’ve personally seen it go higher. It is so hot that you can literally cook an egg using nothing but sunlight (post). You can read more about Kuwait’s scorching hot temperature [here].
Next year, Kuwait will likely be announced as the hottest inhabitable country on earth.
For those that don’t know what a Khataba is, it’s a woman who matches two and gets them married based on their preference. Ever since Snapchat became a thing (I’m a guy), I’ve been getting women from all over the world asking how do they get married to a Kuwaiti, some of them just jump straight to the specs they want and expect me to ride a horse and go search for their prince charming.
If I share screenshots of some of the requests I get, you’d laugh hysterically, but the last person that talked to me about this asked me not to share any of the conversation, and I’d like to stick to that. I feel I need a category on the blog that lists the things I am NOT. One of my weirdest encounters was with a Russian girl that wanted to marry a khaleeji, she spoke fluent Kuwaiti even though she has never been to Kuwait. I get the impression they think every Kuwaiti has an oil well under their house.
If you want a Khataba, please contact [Khataba Om Ali], she will do you good. Seriously, check out that blog post it’s hilarious.
In other news, you can add me on Snapchat if you have no plans of asking me to look for your prince charming, username: x.u
I have probably never been as annoyed by ads in my life as I am from AUM’s recent campaign, it’s aggressively everywhere and it’s driving so many of us crazy. I’ve heard they have a million KD budget. I don’t know why I didn’t do this earlier but today I’ve finally blocked them from twitter to stop ads, the next objective is to block them from my life.
The number one thing I don’t look forward to in this holy month is an unholy one by all means. It’s basically those TV shows where you get to see what beauty operations did the actors do this year that they didn’t have last Ramadan, bigger lips? chubby cheeks? you name it.
Of course no show is worth watching if there isn’t wife-beating, serious slapping issues (sarcasm disclaimer) and drama that gives the worst impression of Kuwaitis and GCC in general. They make it sound like cheating and beating up relatives is something one does as part of his day-to-day activities.
Those that have been following me for a few years know that I love chips, Doritos Cool Ranch being my number one. For some reason (more money probably) some brands have been increasing the chips size while decreasing the amount of chips inside. There was like 20% chips of this bag, the rest was air, complete rip off?
Few months back the Environmental Police set a booth at the Avenues (Phase 3) where they issued a ticket for any smoker they could find. It got me really excited, almost felt like change is finally taking place. Passed by the Avenues on the same day, the booth was already removed and people were smoking everywhere again.
I rendered the whole thing as a CSR stunt that barely achieved anything. Going to the Avenues now is just like going last year, smoke is everywhere, ashtrays are offered by restaurants and I’m sitting in the middle inhaling all this unnecessary toxic. Which isn’t to say this is only exclusive to the Avenues, all malls are pretty much the same.
