The coolest thing about Firefox is all the various extensions you can get. This site has over 200 extensions and they are listed in a way that makes finding what you want very easy. If you don’t know what Firefox is, its basically one of the best browsers ever made. [Link]

So help me win second or third place by voting for my blog. Click the link to go to the voting page, it will just take you a second. [Link]

The KREA

Post by Mark

Krea

Yesterday night I attended the KREA which stands for Kuwait Rewards Excellence in Advertising. I hate attending such events and yesterday was actually my first time attending one. I prefer being low profile and as Bruce Mau says, “Don’t enter awards competitions. Just don’t. It’s not good for you”. But, yesterday was an exception and I had to attend. A good friend of mine was one of the judges at the event and he was only in Kuwait for a few days and the only 2 days I would be able to see him were the night before the event and during the event. So, I ended up attending the event so I could see more of him.

Unlike what I was expecting, the event turned out to be pretty fun. I ended up seeing a lot of old friends and the whole thing felt like a high school reuninion. I was sitting with Nat and some friends at work on a table on the first row and we spent most of the time joking around and having some fun. The event honestly was a disaster although people were telling me this one was slightly better then the Kuwait Awards that was held a few months back. There were a lot of presentation mess ups and the whole thing didn’t feel very organized. There were also some fishy moments which didn’t help with the awards credibility. Agencies were only allowed to submit work that was from 2004 up till now yet there was one agency I know of that submitted work that was prior to 2004 and they ended up winning awards! I found that very shady.

Overall though it was a good night for my agency, we won a whole bunch of awards and I actually got on stage to receive a couple.. not a smart move for someone who would rather remain low profile. But it was fun and I was dressed up very formally which I only do like once every blue moon. The event finished before midnight but by the time I got home (it was held at the Hilton Resort) it was past 12 so I just quickly hit the sack. I don’t think I will ever attend another awards ceromony but atleast now I know incase I do it will probably be fun.

U Shop We Ship Update

Post by Mark

I ordered the Philips Body Groom the other day from Amazon and today it arrived into my U Shop We Ship mailbox. I found out by an email I received from USWS telling me my package had arrived. I logged into my account and noticed that the item had already been shipped from the states and is on its way to Kuwait. I checked the shipment details and got a full description including the vendor name, whats in the package, the size of the package, how much it weights, and how much the shipping costs. I then went to my payments page and saw that I have 1 outstanding payment which was for the shipped package, I clicked a few links and paid for the package with my Knet card and thats it. Now I just wait till they deliver it to me. So far this seems really practical and cool.

Dog Beach

Post by Mark

Dog Beach

Today I took Geo to the Dog Beach. Its a beach where every Friday morning dog owners take their dogs there to interact with each other and play. They usually get there around 8:30 in the morning but since I stayed up late last night I woke up around 9:30 today. We got to the beach around 10 and everyone had left except for one dog and his owners. Geo played with the dog a bit and then we went down to the water. We have taken Geo to the beach before but he never goes into the water but today he walked all the way in until he was nearly fully submerged. He still doesn’t know how to swim so he spends most of his time jumping around in the water. He’s completely exhausted now so he is sleeping. The picture above was taken by Nat today at the beach.

Toyota FJ Cruiser in Kuwait

Post by Mark

Toyota FJ Cruiser

While leaving home today to come in to work I saw a 2007 yellow Toyota FJ Cruiser parked at one of the second hand car dealers in Salmiya (next to Mr Baker, near Kababji and Shaab Park). I thought these cars were coming out in 2007…

Update: Here is a picture of the FJ I took on my way back home [Picture]

Update 2: I called the guy on 5629429, he is asking KD13,000 for it.
