Screwed both ways

Post by Mark

If I post something negative about a place in Kuwait, some people get the impression that I am out to hurt that place. If I post something positive about a place in Kuwait, some people get the impression that I was paid to do so. It’s pretty fucked up really.

Last week I posted two negative posts about Sultan Center, one regarding their eggs, the other about how they stole the Kellogg’s mascot. One reader told me if I hated Sultan that much I should just stop shopping there. What kind of mentality is that? Its kinda like how if I post something negative about Kuwait people come and tell me to get the fuck out if I don’t like it.

I only shop at Sultan Center and I have been a customer ever since they opened up their Salmiya branch back in the 80’s. When I encounter a problem at Sultan Center I complain, I have the right to as a customer. If I complain it doesn’t mean I hate the place, it means I want the place to improve.

Same with my Bazaar posts, some people get the impression I hate Bazaar. I don’t.

One reader asked why I don’t contact customer service when I have a complaint instead of posting it on the blog? Well three reasons. First the obvious which is I need content for the blog. Second is the fact that I am used to sending emails to customer service only to have them ignored and the third and final reason is that problems get fixed quickly after I post about them on the blog.

So from now on if I say good things or bad things about a place or product I hope there will be no misconception.

Out for Christmas

Post by Mark

I will be going down to Lebanon tomorrow for 2 nights. While I am away Nibaq, K.thekuwaiti and zDistrict have access to post here as usual.

On a side note, traffic this holiday was the worst I had ever seen. Every year it just keeps getting more and more packed. And where did this freezing weather suddenly come from??

Gulf Run Tomorrow

Post by Mark

gulf run

Right after work I will be heading out to the airport with a friend of mine where we will both be taking the Jazeera Airways flight to Bahrain. Gulf Run will be held tomorrow at the Bahrain Circuit from 8AM to 6PM. I will be taking my cameras so I will be probably posting pictures once its done and maybe even video if I have the time although I doubt. I don’t think I will be blogging much until I get back Friday evening but I will probably be doing some picture blogging using my phone.

Vacation

Post by Mark

Prince Charles

I will be out of the country from the 19th of October to the 27th on vacation. Me and Nat will be heading to London and Paris and so I don’t know how often I will be updating the blog through out this trip. If I don’t update it daily I am sure you can understand why. This is my first proper vacation in a long time.

Three new blog features

Post by Mark

With the new redesign of the site I’ve also added three new minor features.

Print option
Say for one reason or another you want to print a post, there is now a little print icon at the end of every post (after you click on the post) which will take you to a printer friendly version of the article. You then have the option to print the post either with or without the user comments.

Email option
Again for one reason or another you want to share a post with someone you can now email it to them. There is a little email icon next to the print icon at the end of every plost (again after you click on the post).

Page navigation
At the bottom of the main page there is now a more advanced page navigation system. Before it was just “Previous” and “Next” now its a bit more than that. My favorite part is the “Last” button which will take you to my first posts on this blog.
