Wagamama opening Sunday

Post by Mark

I passed by and spoke to the manager today and he told me they were opening on Sunday. He said they “might” open Saturday night but he can’t confirm since they still have some training to do.

Negro brings the perfect shine

Post by Mark

A friend of mine found this at the supermarket. According to the website it’s “Middle East’s Number 1 Steel Wool”. It’s a Lebanese company which makes sense since racism is still pretty widespread there. [Link]

Thanks Farah!

BBC needs your help

Post by Mark

I met this cool BBC director a couple of days back who’s in Kuwait to film a documentary about people who are pursuing a healthy lifestyle. She’s looking for young Kuwaitis who would be interested in appearing on the show and I told her I would help out by posting their request on my blog. Here is what she sent me to publish:

BBC– 4x Part Educational & Health Series/Travelogue

BBC3 is working on a series of one-hour long observational documentaries looking at young people who are trying to pursue a healthy lifestyle.

In each episode two young people from the UK who are struggling with their weight will travel to a different country.

As well as an hour on Kuwait, the series will also be filming in the USA, Argentina and Greece.

The programme will be used as an educational tool to discourage young people from leading an unhealthy lifestyle as well as giving viewers a unique window to the country we visit.

In Kuwait we want to show Kuwaiti traditions, lifestyle and culture – including weddings, malls, restaurants, diwaniyas, a trip to the desert, etc.

At the moment we are looking for young Kuwaiti’s who might be interested in appearing in the show, and we would love any help and guidance that you can give us in this matter

Bean bags!

Post by Mark

I found a place that sells bean bags for cheap in Dajeej. The place is called Banta and they’re selling the bean bags for just KD13. It’s not really a nice place and kinda looks like an IKEA wannabee but the bean bags are cheap. Here is a link to their website [Link]

Desert Storm

Post by Mark

I am always on the lookout for photos that were taken either during the 1990 occupation of Kuwait or after the liberation and with flickr finding them is pretty easy… if they’re tagged properly. Below are a few links of photo sets I found that were mostly taken by soldiers during Desert Storm. If anyone has photos they’ve taken and would like to share them [Contact Me]

287 high school students participated in this one cut lip sync to Grease. I like how they all got dressed up for this. [YouTube]
