It was either this video or someone performing the dancing cane trick at Avenues. I thought this one had a funnier title. [YouTube]

Where did they go?

Post by Mark

The other day I posted about the new bollards (poles) that were being installed in the area around my office in Kuwait City. They really didn’t fit in with their environment and it looked like a lot of money was wasted on them. Well one of my blog readers just made me realize that they’re not there anymore. I saw some guys working on them this morning when I was coming in to work and figured they were just properly fixing them but it seems they were removing them. Strange, just like that they’re gone, not a single one left behind. Hmmmm…

Teddy On The Go

Post by Mark

Teddy On The Go is an interesting social experiment by a Kuwaiti architecture student that recently moved back to Kuwait. To keep herself in check and out of a routine she decided to start the website Teddy on the Go as a way to motivate her into doing something interesting or new everyday and also as a way of expressing her opinions subtly through the bear. Her project is going to last for 365 days only after which the bear will be sold for charity. Currently she is at day 11. Check out her experiment by visiting her website www.yearofteddy.com

New thingies (poles?)

Post by Mark

They’re installing these new thingies (forgot what they’re called) around my office block in Kuwait City. Someone must have seen them in Europe and thought oh these would look great in Kuwait lets get some. They don’t, they look weird and out of place and I think they’re going to install them all over Kuwait City. Would be interested in what re:kuwait have to say about this.

Update: re:kuwait has commented on these bollards you can check his post [Here]

The Failed Escape in Abu Halifa

Post by Mark

360Dewan posted this messed up video that was shot here in Kuwait of a pickup truck dragging a car behind it. When I first watched the video I thought the car in the back was pushing the truck but then I realized the car in the back had the brakes held down most of the time. By the end of the video it turns out the pickup truck somehow crashed into the car (probably reversed into it) and then tried escaping but the car got attached to the truck and was being dragged alone. In the end a woman comes out of the car screaming asking people to help her out. [YouTube]

Green Grass

Post by Mark

I was at Souk Sharq when I noticed their beautiful grass. It looked perfect all nice and green on a very hot sunny day. But sadly, on closer inspection it turned out the grass was fake, a really good fake. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t real until I pulled up the grass from one of the edges to reveal its carpet like application.
