Keep Kuwait Clean !

garbage 2

Today the climate was good, so as usual I went for a walk but what I found was astonishingly sad. The bridge near Kuwait Tower which is always neat and tidy was a mess.

Cleaners are doing a great job keeping Kuwait clean especially in this summer but what saddens me most is the people. Whom to be blamed, of course us but why?

Garbage

If single member of this society (includes Citizens & Expatriates) takes care of their garbage instead of throwing them away in a random place you are making the job easier for the poor hardworking cleaners. In kuwait where ever you turn their is a place to throw your garbage but what’s the point, atleast think about the cleaners. I know some of us might think that cleaners will clean it up but why cause havoc, If you yourselves can keep it clean.

Admiring the Sunrise

Starfish KuwaitLifestyle

I usually sleep early as possible because I’m an early bloomer, but for about past couple of weeks I had trouble sleeping and I couldn’t ‘t focus on my work and studies.

I took a month off which I usually get every six months and started to hang around with my childhood friend who is an egyptian, he will be traveling back to canada soon so I thought If I can’t take a proper nap then I better tag along with my childhood buddy who have a lot in common to what I think.

Today we thought to go to the beach as early as possible to see the sunrise  and the weather was amazing too. So our planning went better then expected. To be honest there is nothing to do in Kuwait at 2 am so whats better to do at that time of the day especially in summer then fishing which was boring but exciting if you are doing it with a friend. Here is some of the snaps I took after the sunrise.

The Avenues, Biggest mall in Gulf

Kuwait Avenue

When I usually feel boring, I go for a walk but today I took a turn and went to Avenues because I only go mall for purchasing that also for special occasions.

I kind a felt to try something different and it was nice because its monday the place was less crowded compare to weekend which is obvious. The images I’m sharing are from Grand Avenues. I really like the architectural design and the way they thought of it.

It really feels like a mini Europe. Correct me if I’m wrong, it’s the biggest mall in the gulf and it stands 16th in the world at least that’s what I heard, still the construction is going on so the mall will expand more.

Pokémon Go might be Banned!

 

Pokemon_go

Clearly you might have been playing this game and love it especially if you are 90’s kid, even if you have no idea about the app you will go for it because the Pokemon Go is an exercise game app which is fun way to loose weight.

Unfortunately its banned in some parts of Kuwait due to security reasons. The game is solely through Pokemon characters which means you have to roam around finding the anime

Although  the game is fun, it’s also dangerous because if one uses the application  for finding his favourite character and if he cross the street without acknowledgment of passing vehicle, it might lead to death.Pokemon-go playstore

It seems like new users can’t download the app through AppStore & PlayStore. You might have guessed it, all coming together now and its better that way, well that’s  my opinion.

The Interior Ministry issued a statement Friday warning users of the smash mobile phone application from taking pictures of any vital government, military or security location.

It also warned users not to pounce on Pikachus or chase Charmanders at mosques, shopping centers, malls and oil installations.

According to the Director of Al-Azhar University Dr Abbas Shoman, the game makes people look like drunkards on the roads.

He posited that the game could deceive children to the extent that they will start believing in it.

Dr Shoman wondered what has happened to the intelligence of adults who follow the illusion to such an extent that somebody hit a car due to his inattentiveness over the movement of vehicles.

The United Arab Emirates warned on Friday that criminals could exploit users of the smash hit virtual reality Pokemon Go game and other apps to hack their phones and spy on their movements.

The warning comes after Australian police said that a couple playing Pokemon Go were threatened at gunpoint in a park south of Sydney and blamed the game for a wave of crimes, traffic violations and complaints.

The wildly popular mobile app, which is based on a 1990s Nintendo game, has created a global frenzy as players roam the real world looking for cartoon monsters.

The game requires the phone to transmit its location via GPS and uses its camera which the UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority warned “violates the user’s privacy” and could lead “criminals” to spread viruses.

The TRA said Pokemon Go could result in users being spied upon and urged players not to activate their phone cameras at home or in other private areas.

Pokemon Go works in the UAE but cannot yet be downloaded from local app stores (Source)

It will be one of the longest in the world and I heard it will stand in fifth place but I’m not certain about that, The causeway will be having two main bridges, one will be 37.5 km and the other one will be 16 km. It will also consist of two man made islands. The construction work is still going on and It is said to be completed in 2018. Below are some pictures that I gathered to post.

Unique Breeds of Arabian Horses !

K1

I have visited a friend of a relative who owns a yard, where he have about fifty camels and an Arabian horse, which made me wonder what was the different between other breeds because if you have noticed the British Police Horses you might see them to be bigger in appearance.

Here is what I found. Throughout history, Arabian horses have spread around the world by both war and trade, used to improve other breeds by adding speed, refinement, endurance, and strong bone. Today, Arabian bloodlines are found in almost every modern breed of riding horse. well thats amazing.

Kuwait’s  Arabian Horse Center known as Bait Al-Arab doing a great job in breeding of unique arabian horses.

Bait Al-Arab plays a key role in breeding of the unique Arabian horses, numbers of which have dwindled in the Arabian Peninsula. The center, run by the Assistant Undersecretary at the Amiri Diwan, Sheikha Sara Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, was founded in 1980 to preserve breeding of these horses and promoting the raising of the beautiful animals in the country.

that the center hosts more than 100 heads of genuine Arabian horses. The center, located on a 300,000-sqm plot of land in Subhan, regularly hosts Arabian beauty horses contests.

The Arabian horse was born and evolved in a desert and was prized by the nomadic Bedouin tribes. Historical studies indicate that the Arabian horse was strongly linked to humans. The animal was even brought inside family tents in order to be protected and sheltered. This close relationship with humans has created a horse that is a fast learner, good-natured and a faithful companion. The Arabian horses developed the high spirit and alertness that are essential in a horse used for purposes such as war. — KUNA( Source)
