Ever since android was announced and became popular and till this day some people still think Android is a Samsung based mobile OS and they dont consider any other mobile manufacturer when thinking of owning an Android device. In my personal opinion Samsung has the worst Android skins ever not to mention how heavy it is when multitasking, the main purpose of owning an android device that you tailor the software to your use from choosing the launcher and the main apps also icon packs but unfortunately people just use whatever is installed on the device by the manufacturer regardless on whether its a good or bad app and at the end they blame the mobile device if the app crashes. Rarely I’ve seen people theme their android device or shall i say Samsung device to their needs which basically breaks the main purpose of owning an open source mobile OS.
What really drove people to consider Samsung as a dominant mobile manufacturer is the lawsuit between Apple and Samsung back in 2010 and Samsung flooding the market with cheap Android device even their flagship devices were made of cheap plastic yet most people ignored all the other Android manufacturers and ran to Samsung.
I wont blame it all on the simple consumer cause Samy also have the biggest marketing campaigns among mobile manufacturers, I just hope Android users start considering other manufacturers like htc, LG & Sony I not prompting for recommending a certain brand but Im so fed up with people buying cheap Samsung devices as if its the only mobile out there other than Apple’s iPhone.
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 ??????
Iwish simply the most annoying reality show you might ever come across in the arab world. I didnt get a chance to actually write about it cause each time i try to watch an episode it drives me mad, how shallow, untalented the participants are not to mention some of the judges.
We live in a community were the more you act like an expert even if you words doesnt make any sense the more follower you gain and if you throw an english sentence now and then in your conversation you are a sophisticated intelligent person even if you dont have the right accent. Im not denying that we have some talents here is kuwait but they are all over whelmed by the actors and shallow idiots around them.
Let me start by talking about 52 degrees a business that claims supporting youth and young talents while infact they are just feeding on their blood. Have you ever passed by 52 degrees?
I believe most of us have done that and ended up regretting it, just walking around their show room 90% of the products are way over rated, stolen designs or even freaken ugly and not even worth looking at not to mention the catastrophic price tags on them.
So here is how I think the idea of Iwish came to life, years have passes and 52 Degrees suffered from the lack of things to offer and they came up with the iwish idea, a reality show to promote them and remind people of 52 Degrees but it actually back fired at them and ended up highlighting everything that is wrong in our community and how some businesses support the untalented shallow actors who claim they wanna build their career. I dont wanna make this post long so I’ll end it here and make room for your comment to express what i have might not mentioned.
What do you think of iwish ????
