In 2015, there were 30,000 sick leaves right after Eid and I was wondering back then if there was a sudden massive diarrhea virus spreading in Kuwait (sarcasm). This year it’s over 31,000 and I’m wondering if it’s related to fecal (feces) bacteria found in Starbucks’ Iced Coffee that’s making the internet go crazy, it’s not though, just bad ethics for some probably.
It appears there has been a huge portion of people who suddenly went sick coincidently for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday that are right after Eid. Who knows, maybe there was a massive diarrhea virus spreading in Kuwait, or everyone just decided they wanted to take the entire week off. More details [here].
The Atlantic have posted a gallery of this years Eid Al Adha celebrations taking place all over the world and some of them are just a beauty to look at, others are filled with blood and sacrifice. It’s fascinating seeing how this ritual is celebrated all over the world. You can see the entire gallery by clicking [here].
This is why I keep saying “your driver to not a robot to people”, he needs to rest and can’t be working around the clock. In Sharjah, a father and his son died after their SUV crashed into pedestrians because the driver fell asleep at wheel. The driver told police how tried and stressed he was after Eid holidays. I hate driving while exhausted, first thing I do is grab some coffee.[Source]
Ramadan this year went so fast, still feels like we’re on the second week. I hope everyone took advantage of this holy month with more prayers and good deeds. Please don’t waste food this Eid just because you have extra money to spend. Khwater had a great episode on wasted food and how wrong it is[link].
عيدكم مبارك وتقبل الله طاعتكم
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.
I must admit the name was kind of funny at first. I wish I knew about this before the Eid holidays, it’s a nice concept. Basically has Muslims travelling worldwide reviewing Muslim-friendly hotels. They show hotels who are alochol-free that offer prayer rooms and mention whether halal food is served. A website to keep in mind before the next travel.[Website]
Telecommunication companies should really find a way to stop this. I’m getting tired of getting these random spam messages from Estonia(+372) and Somalia(+252). I even kept getting them after Eid was over. I normally use a Wataniya sim card but I know all Telecom’s face this issue. I am aware that you can block contacts, but there’s no point in doing that when I keep getting the message from different numbers.
