Today mark the 2nd of August, Its the 23rd memorial of the Iraqi barbarian invasion to kuwait. Speaking upon myself & many Kuwaitis, we would like to declare that: we didn’t & will never forget nor forgive!

A couple of pictures have been leaked showing off a blackberry Porsche Design Z10, could this be the next blackberry Porsche design edition for the Z10 !!!!

Personally I think the rumor/leaked photos are true since the Blackberry P9981 sold like crazy ( as a luxurious mobile) and specially in the GCC. On a personal level I can’t wait for the official announcement and an Q10 Porsche design edition also.

Is This What You Call Parenting !?

by Mohd in Bla Bla Bla, Kuwait

sad child bad parenting 619x409 Is This What You Call Parenting !?

Its been along time since my last post and there is no excuse I was so busy at work lately and took a vacation not to mention my laziness but something happened that triggered my train of thoughts and pushed me to start writing again.

 

Yesterday I casually passed by a fast food restaurant, McDonalds to be exact and while I was there I noticed this cute little girl that her smile captured my heart coming in the restaurant with her 2 brothers & sister followed by the maid (of course no Kuwaiti child nowadays doesnt have a couple of maids following him) and their father. The oldest kid among them maybe 7 years old (Im only assuming that they are siblings and they are with their father)  the father (as i assumed) ordered some junk food for the kids and while I was waiting for my order to finish suddenly I watched the father took off in his car leaving those kids alone with the maid. I thought to myself maybe he had to buy some stuff quickly from the Co-op or the pharmacy and he will come back for his kids, but the kids were sitting on a table eating with the maid so maybe he (The father) did not order for himself. Any way I took my order and went on my way to hang out with the guys in Gahwa which is by the way 15 minute drive without traffic and guess who I see sitting in the table next to my friends ?????

Yup its the Father of those 4 Kids, to my shock I couldnt resist starring at him even had a crazy thought that the guy sitting in that table is his twin but my logic kicked in and remembered his clothes so I became so sure that he is who I just saw 15 minutes ago.

 

I kept on wondering what the hell is this guys doing ? could there be a logical explanation to what I just saw or maybe someone was gonna pick those kids up !!!!

 

Although Im single and have no experience in parenting but Ive always felt that feeding your kids junk food is like feeding them small doses of poison and at the end we wounder why the hell we have a high rate of child’s obesity in Kuwait, smart community I know.

 

Anyway back to my story, I spent almost 3 hours with my friends and that guy was still sitting, one of my friends wanted to go get dinner from McDonalds. It was like a hidden invite for me to join him to answer that burning question I had going on my mind. We went to the same McDonalds, deep inside I was wishing those kids were gone by now  and I overreacted upon something I dont understand but as we all know not all wishes come true. I saw the same 4 kids sitting around the same table & youngest girl who her smile captured my heart were resting her head on the table almost sleeping with their maid bored to hell not to mention the amount of junk food that went into their system.

What the hell is happening to the world…..correction to Kuwait ?

Am I overacting cause i dont know anything about the stress parents suffer from everyday ?

Does that stress give the parents the right to ditch their kids and go have fun alone ?

Some times I think that some people dont deserve to have kids since they lack the responsibility to care and provide for them.

Im throwing my story out there for all of you to share your thoughts on that matter, please correct me if Im wrong does that seem normal to you or acceptable throwing your kids at a place with the maid and you go hang out with friends ??????

Zombie Apocalypse Survival Gear

by Abdul-Aziz in Bla Bla Bla, Movies

Found this survival gear guide while browsing the web yesterday.

Our fears & fantasies have changed over the years. When thinking of zombie apocalypses, I too often think of what the world would look like. Is it worth surviving if you are in a constant state of fear like many of the Zombie movies and TV shows present characters in these situations? How would you remain hopeful in a situation that seems so hopeless? It seems the scariest thing to me about zombies is not that you have a chance of your brain being ripped out and torn to shreds by chomping teeth, but rather knowing a person you may have known is now that flesh eating zombie who has nothing human about them left. For me, the scariest thing about a zombie outbreak would be seeing the people I know and love turn into something without any humanity, something without life.

So be fully prepared to defend your own Humanity

BBM Will Be Available On Android & iOS

by Mohd in apps, News, Technology

20130514 194441 BBM Will Be Available On Android & iOS

Announced a few hours ago in Blackberry Live that the famous BBM Messenger is gonna be across platform app which means that iPhone & Android users gonna be able to simply download BBM from their App Store.

It’s a bold move from Blackberry to gain more users back on BBM but My initial thought that they are slowly killing themselves coz other than security Blackberry had this unique feature which now can be available on iOS & Android.

Save #Kuwait On Instagram

by Mohd in apps, Art, Bla Bla Bla

3009340 poster instagram 619x403 Save #Kuwait On Instagram

Yesterday out of boredom I searched #kuwait on Instagram and I hope I never did. All the pics were mostly out of Google, Cheap Ads, Food or texagram ( a stupid app for sharing Notes on Instagram ). Instagram gained a huge number of Kuwaitis since it launched and I won’t be exaggerating if I assume that more people are using it than Twitter nowadays. Twitter became a feed for sharing Instagram pics, with the huge amount of instagrams out there I thought that by searching #kuwait I would have been indulged by some awesome local pics but to my disappointment now I know anyone abroad searching for some images that represent Kuwait he will have a hard time finding a decent one.

Instagram kuwait 619x408 Save #Kuwait On Instagram

Everywhere in Kuwait there is someone either posing for an Instagram pic or holding his mobile in a weird position trying hard to get the perfect short, not to mention all of those teens walking around in malls holding their DSLRs. All of the pervious observation and I would expect finding some decent pics when searching about Kuwait.

Of course I know no one would care about saving our country’s hash tag on Instagram by posting good pics, am I the only one who noticed this !!!

Would you even care about saving #kuwait???
