We went this time without Yousef. We used to go with him almost every year since 1998. He didn’t want to go because we were going early in the morning and returning the same day at night. He wanted to stay atleast for a night. I don’t know why He doesn’t enjoy the exhibition.

My friend was in Avenues phase II and took the picture above. He said it looked like another big food court is about to be opened in phase II.

Thanks HKR

 





The hotel is Elite Resort & Spa, It’s near the Diplomat hotel and right next to Novotel Aldana hotel. It’s an all suits hotel.

Our booking was for Elite grand hotel, and when we first arrived there, the guy at the front desk, 3abd ali, said that they have no rooms left for us, and according to the booking’s agreement they could transfer us to another hotel of theirs with the same kind of rooms. He said they have rooms ready for us at the other hotel, Elite Resort & Spa, we weren’t happy with the change at first and started arguing. 3abd ali won the argument with flying colors.. He even had us laughing by the time we left for the other hotel. It turned out to be a nice upgrade too.

We were 16 and then we were joined in Bahrain by Weld el-ma6aba. 17 chaotic guys. Very unorganized trip which made the whole thing that much better. I loved not knowing where we were going.

I was told that the gas stations in Kuwait won’t be operating tomorrow due to a strike. I don’t have anymore info about this. We just filled up all of our cars’ tanks.

Update:
The strike was only in KNPC stations, and Mr. Solutions just said that it has ended coz the KNPC management agreed to give the union what they want.

We’re on our way to Bahrain. We’re a group of 16 in 5 cars about to leave Kuwait and into Saudi right now. We’re going there for the weekend and to attend a friend’s wedding in Alkhubar, which is 30 minutes away from the hotel.

 





My brother told me I should post about this PS3 game. Apparently it’s something a lot of guys have been waiting for 😛 It’s available now in AlRehab in Hawally.

 





Our friend got his neck hurt while playing volleyball in the chalet and we rushed him to Al Adan hospital.

The whole Adan experience was a sad one. I went in expecting the worst kind of doctors with the worst attitudes. I expected to have a bad experience as a result of incompetent staff. But that wasn’t the case.. that wasn’t the case at all. The doctors were doing their jobs to the best of their abilities and the nurses were running around to help as much as they could. I’m not going to talk about the receptionists because, simply, they do not qualify as human beings (inshallah ma3ashat’hom zaqqoom bichbood’hom) so i won’t mention them (again).

The one thing that was bringing the whole thing down.. the one thing that was wrong with the hospital (aside from the building itself) was the people. The patients and their families. As soon as we were by the doctor’s door the shoving and cutting inline started. We saw our number flash on the screen and went to the doctor to find a whole other family entering before us and taking our turn. And when they came out, another women wanted to cut inline and even had the nerve to feel offended when we refused to let her go in before we do.

When we were in the doctor’s office and our friend being diagnosed, there was atleast 5 attempts to open the door. The nurse had to lock the door.

There are always people complaining about the doctors in Kuwait and how they’re not doing their job. How they get misdiagnosed and stuff.. But now I know, in my opinion, the main cause behind such complaints.

The Kuwaiti people need to take lessons and be parented all over again before we are let out on the streets. We should go to some sort of a facility with courses where they teach us how to respect our own boundaries.. and then a whole set of other courses to teach us all about other people’s rights. How do you expect the doctor to give you a fair treatment when the nurse has to block the door by force as to not let other people in while you’re being diagnosed? How do you expect to get the doctor’s full attention when there is some idiot outside the door banging like a maniac wanting in? What goes through YOUR mind when YOU cut inline??

I think the state of Kuwait’s hospitals perfectly fits the state of it’s People’s mentality.

My friend Talal who is a student in Dubai just wrote us saying there is a big issue going on with all the Kuwaiti credit cards (Visa, Master, and even Visa electron) that’s been used in Dubai within the last 6 months. He said they’re suspending all the cards and issuing new ones due to recent theft incidents. Make sure you always do a credit card comparison.

He also said that NBK is going to send him his card via DHL, and that if someone who’s in dubai and in desperate need for cash, they can lift the block on his card just temporarily in order for him to withdraw some money and then block it again right away.

Did you guys know about this thing? I didn’t. All I know is that they’re replacing all of their cards with new ones with a chip in them. Sort of an update and not something serious.

Thanks Talal.

Update:
I just spoke with someone from NBK and he confirmed that there have been many pretty big hacks and theft incidents on credit & debit cards used in Dubai in the past 6 months. And it’s happening with all the other banks too, not just the NBK.

Today i found out HNM wearing these weird looking naked slippers, It may look difficult to walk around in without the straps, but the slipper sticks to your feet like magnet. There are lots of colors to choose from too.

So Apple’s long awaited event took place this evening around 8pm (our time) and the following are some of the results:

  • New revamped macbook pro with many new features.
  • New silver macbooks that look exactly like the pro line have been introduced, and dropped the black ones.
  • Macbook air. upped the harddisk to 128gb and added a mini display port.
  • New led backlit Cinema Display with a magsafe to power notebooks, a 2nd USB port and a display port.

Personally I was most concerned about the new macbook pro line, since I just bought mine 6 months ago, and honestly, I thought I’d be a bit more jealous, but I’m not. I’ve always hated the black keyboard on the Air’s, but then again, I’m really impressed with the new mouse button (now THATS innovation) and the new improved battery life.

To know more about the event in details se ENGADGET’s live feed.
