Benjamin Boring Button

Post by Mark

Just got back from watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It was toooo long and verrrrrry boring. Maybe if it was an hour shorter, MAYBE it would have been interesting but it just dragged and dragged. On my way out I overheard a group of girls talk about how much they loved the movie and I guess thats how it got an 8.3 out of 10 on IMDB, its a chick flick!

On a positive note before the movie started I watched the trailer for Watchmen, now THATS going to be one helluva movie! [Link]

P2BK

Proud to be Kuwaiti is a foundation that was formed to recognize and encourage the youth of Kuwait to depend on themselves and establish their own business by giving their skills and talent a chance to shine. I posted about them last year when they had their first event and tomorrow the event is back for the second time. Like last year a ton of small local start ups will be participating. I won’t be able to attend since I am in Lebanon but Nataly will be going for sure. Here are some event details:

Proud 2 be Kuwaiti
Location: Al Raya Ballroom
February 22nd from 6pm to 10pm
February 23rd from 10am to 2pm and 5pm to 9pm

Event is open to everyone and more than 100 small Kuwaiti businesses will be featured. Here is a link to their website. [Link]

The Almond Tree

Post by Mark

Was up from 3AM because we had a 3 hour drive to the middle of nowhere today. I experienced temperatures ranging from freezing 2 degrees all the way up to a hot 20. We had heavy rain, heavy fog, light snow and sizzling heat all in one day! Anyway in one of the locations we were in there was an almond tree. I took a few pictures of it but the one above was my favorite.

Was at a semi-abandoned park today and managed to capture a lot of interesting shots with my Sony W300 which you can check below. I regret not having my D90 with me…

Car on fire

Post by Mark

A reader spotted a car on fire early morning in the evening while out cycling and managed to capture some pictures to share it with everyone. Looks like there was a big crowd.

Thanks Hamad!

Dubai is Dead

Post by Mark

Looks like a total meltdown over there. On the plus side, there will be less traffic and cheaper rent once it turns into a ghost town. Here is a link to a really harsh (but probably very true) article entitled “Goodbye Dubai”. [Link]
