No more scooters at The Avenues

Post by Mark

Not sure how serious the scooter problem was at The Avenues but they’re now banning them. Personally I would rather they focus all their effort on the no smoking policy.

Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?

Post by Mark

A couple of days back I found the image above of Lionel Richie on a website and it cracked me. So, I decided to replicate it and put it up in my office. But, I then decided to print a couple of more copies and paste them around town (check an example below) since I figured it would put a smile on the face of a stranger when they saw it.

Now I’m sharing the PDF of the flyer I did in case you want to print and paste it somewhere as well. It’s a silly little thing but it’s fun. [PDF]

This has to be the strangest thing I’ve read in ages. According to Badoo the compilers of the world’s largest ever study on online flirting, Kuwait ranked 3rd in flirtatious behavior online. 3rd place out of 200! Isn’t that so very weird?

Top 10
1 Athens
2 Moscow
3 Kuwait City
4 Baku
5 Tunis
6 Kiev
7 Beirut
8= Turin
8= Rome
10 Bari

Lost & Found

Post by Mark

A reader sent me pictures he took at one of KPTC’s bus depots. It seems that losing passports, civil id cards and driving licenses is very common, so common they’ve actually setup a display of all the lost and found id cards.

Thanks Adil

Crazy Taxi

Post by Mark

I thought I spotted a car on the Gulf Road a couple of weeks back that looked like the taxi from the video game Crazy Taxi. Turns out I wasn’t imagining things since I spotted the picture above on the blog Hunny Was Here. Lots of cool pictures of other interesting cars as well check them out [Here] and [Here]

Event: 16th GCC Stamps Exhibition

Post by Mark

For some odd reason there is a stamps exhibition currently taking place at the Avenues. I say odd not because I am not a stamps fan but because it’s 2010 and I thought stamp collecting was dead. I still have my stamp collection tucked away somewhere in my bookshelf and I should probably pass by the exhibition and see if I have anything that’s worth something. The exhibition is going to be there until the 27th and they’re located in Phase II opposite Diesel and Marc Jacobs. It’s a stamps exhibition!

Request an ambulance online

Post by Mark

Did you know you could request an ambulance online? I didn’t until a few moments ago when I read it on Q8-Dewaniya. Just go to Kuwait’s EMS website and click the link at the bottom that says ambulance request. [Link]
