Posted by Mark

Just got 2 invites for the Mardi Gras event that will be held at the US embassy on April 18th. It should turn out to be a lot of fun but what I am expecting will be even more fun is the dog show event at the British embassy tomorrow. I will take pictures and post them up when I get back home.

The Zoo

Posted by Mark

I just called the Kuwait Zoo to find out until what time they were open today and the guy was like 12PM. I figured that was because today is Thursday and maybe the Zoo have half day. So I asked the guy how about on usual days, till what time are you open? He was like 12PM, we are open till 12PM everyday except for Saturday when we are closed.

I find that a bit strange to be open till just 12PM, I know I have been there past 12 before like 5 or something. I guess this is their new summer time although I don’t count this weather summary yet..

Kuwait Zoo telephone: 24733389

Update: Here are pictures I took the last time I was at the zoo [Pictures]

Update2: Opening hours are now 8 to 12 and 4 to 8.

Cop vs Dog – cop uses the taser

Posted by Mark

This is a cool video showing a cop getting attacked by a dog (looks like a Rottweiler) and then his partner uses a taser to get the dog to back off. I am surprised the taser didn’t kill it. [Link]

Alghanim IndustriesFor the next three months Alghanim Automotive will be the main sponsors for the website. As you can see they have purchased the banner space on the top of the sidebar and they might be swapping their ads every 2 weeks or whenever they have a new offer.

Alghanim Automative are the dealers for Cadillac, Chevrolet, Hummer, Opel and Saab and around every two weeks I will be invited to try out a certain car. That should turn out to be really fun since I haven’t done anything like that before. Most importantly they will not be interfering in the reviews which is also a cool thing.

This support by Alghanim Automotive is a good thing for the site because the money from this deal will be reinvested into the website. I met the Alghanim marketing team last week and they are a nice young group who are great fans of the blog so I am glad to be working with them.

The next few months will be very interesting and filled with surprises so enjoy the ride.
