Project # 2's name is Wiesmann

Extinct Dodo was the first one to name the brand and won the two invitations for the official launch in late summer. I didn't think that somebody would find out so fast!

So it's a Wiesmann!

The Roadster

and the GT

I will post some more pictures but I don't want this to look like advertisment.
So I will not only post about those two beauties and their big brother who will be released by next year. I will not only talk about the amazing BMW technologie that drives this trio. Or the unlimited color choices... the high skills and the deep knowledge when this car is being hand build...

No... I just did it and should I sometimes repeat myself in the future, then please forgive me! The words would come from my heart!

It's the things inside that count...

All leather ... color you wish ... instruments in color you want ... various options for the storing compartments and the audio system ...

No limits to your leather color choice!

Over 600 cars produced so far (two different models) and NONE is like the other!

Take a look at me now

How can i just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
When i stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
You're the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me,
When all i can do is watch you leave
Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain
and even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, oh there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me,
Just the memory of your face
Ooh take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what i've got to face

I wish i could just make you turn around,
Turn around and see me cry
There's so much i need to say to you,
So many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Now take a look at me now, cos there's just an empty space

But to wait for you, is all i can do and that's what i've got to face
Take a good look at me now, cos i'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
It's the chance i've gotta take

Take a look at me now

Phil Collins / Against all odds (take a look at me now)

He says what I feel...

Ok ... I think I will make something like a game here!

Launch will be in September or October...

Party / Food / Give Away's / ...

More on project # 2

I promised to post pictures of "project 2". Here is the first one...

Since I try to keep some tension here, I will not tell you the manufactures name... if you know it... please keep it for yourself.

Thinking like a Kuwaiti

Daily Column
Thinking like a Kuwaiti
Published Date: February 21, 2007
By Dr Sami Alrabaa Mohammed

Al-Saleh writes in his column in Al-Qabas, Feb 19 the following, implying/referring to Kuwaitis in general:
Work is something sacred. Do not touch it. Postpone your work until the day after tomorrow if you can't postpone it until tomorrow. Do as little as you can and make the others do the job for you. If you feel like working, take some rest until that wish evaporates. Work is healthy. Therefore leave it to the ill. I would add, also implying/referring to Kuwaitis in general:If you have Wasta, (if you are well connected), why bother with the law. If you have Wasta, why bother to learn and exert yourself. You will get the job you want and the others (expats) will eventually do the job for you. As a Kuwaiti skip work. Because you are a Kuwaiti you will never be fired. Wear an Islamist mask and behind it do whatever you want. As an Islamist you must be pious. Pretend you are a devout Muslim. Go to perform noon prayers. From there go home. If people ask where you are, we will say you are praying. Make a list of excuses from "work". One day, your wife is ill, the other, it is your son Mohammed, the other Ali, etc. If you are a high profile official, do what Islamists tell you. They would love you and leave you to do what you want. Make debts, borrow a lot of money and buy whatever you want. One day, these debts will be wiped out. Carry on asking what Kuwait can do for you, but never what you can do for Kuwait. Do not forget to sing: I love Kuwait. Throw your litter out of your car. Litter all over. Public places are no-man's land. Why do we have Bangladeshis? They would be jobless without your litter. Leave all your bulbs and A/C on all the time, waste as much water as you can. Only the dumb pay their electricity and water bills. Do not read. Do not inform yourself. The more you know, the more depressed you get. The more you learn about other societies, the more you are convinced, you live in a mad house. Wrong are always the others. Although you are as corrupt as the others, as lazy as the others, blame it on the others. You are perfect, but not the others. Committees made out of Kuwaitis spawn only other committees. They are not built to propose solutions. In public, condemn Western "decadence", but in private enjoy its products. Praise local traditions, no matter what anachronistic they are. If you employ an expat, exploit him/her as much as you can. They should be thankful to you that they earn a couple of dinars. Back home they would die of hunger. When international human rights organisations blast Kuwaitis for ill-treating expats, refer them to the humane labour laws in Kuwait. Do not learn from expat colleagues. Punctuality and hard work do not pay off in Kuwait. Expats are there to do the job and not to learn from. Never teach your kids "Do it yourself". Otherwise, they run the risk of learning independence, discipline, and creativity. It is cheaper to get all these things for KD 30. It is not worth it. Have you ever seen a Kuwaiti reading a book in a public place like, parks, cafes, or libraries? What kind of books do Kuwaitis buy? Books about deciphering dreams and cooking. If Kuwaiti women were free, really free and not shackled to the rules of tradition, not to say suppressed by men, they would expose men and prove that they are simply paper tigers. Men know this. Therefore they subordinate women to their will, arbitrarily. Do you know why Kuwaiti men, for that matter most Arab men, walk at least two to three steps ahead of their wives? They want to shield them from the lusty eyes of male strangers. Men-women relationships are abnormal in Kuwaiti society. This abnormality is justified by anachronistic norms and pseudo-Islamic rules. Roman women envied their Muslim counterparts for being allowed to fight and conduct business transactions. Nowadays, most Kuwaiti and Arab women need the blessing of their men for every movement they do.
Now, expats are addressed:If you are an expat, just do what makes your Kuwaiti employer happy. Never disagree with your boss or Kuwaiti colleagues, even if they do not have the slightest clue. On the contrary, keep flattering them. Honesty does not pay off in Kuwait. Keep your advice and frustration in yourself. Lock them up. If you are an expat teacher, do not be demanding. The more students complain about you, the shorter your employment chances will be in Kuwait. Students must have enough time to play video games and watch TV. At roundabouts and queues give way to Kuwaitis, regardless of traffic rules. Do not rush Kuwaitis at government departments. They hate speeding at work. In some areas, the speed limit is zero. Besides, the poor Kuwaiti employees, they stay up late at night fulfilling their social duties. Do not expect a "thank you" from a Kuwaiti. You are doing your duties. Kuwaitis are not racist. Assigning demeaning jobs to Bangladeshis and Indians is simply a kind of division of labour. Generally, a Kuwaiti man does not bring his wife to your mixed social gatherings not because he is misogynist. It is because she does not want to. She prefers to stay at home and wait for her husband. Some Kuwaitis believe that their maids are robots. Indeed, some maids show no feelings, never complain, and speak like robots: Yes, no, ok, etc. That is why some Kuwaitis make their maids work for 24 hours.

Do you find yourself?? I do in some parts and I am an expat living here (maybe too long already)...

This is sick!

Shoot me should I ever be so stupid ...

Lustige Videos – Gratis Fun Video – Deine funny Videos bei Clipfish

One year has passed ...

Hey there!

I was gone for so long that I could hardly remember how to log in ... :o

So many things have happened in over 1 year of bloggins abstinence. Too many things to mention them all.
Most important is that I am still in Kuwait and I am still driving with no further accidents... :P

So short update on my situation:
- New Job (since 4 months)
- good position / prospect
- great projects
- Private life very messy right now
- Family coming over to visit me
- My wheels changed to something... hmmm... ok ... but not as nice as before...
- Sourrounded by families with children (3 other apartments on my floor with a total of 7 kids!)

Since I don't want to spread my private life here, I will tell you about two projects that are coming up that are very much in line with this blog... cars / road rage / traffic caos ... :P

Project number ONE:

Nano. Ever heard of Nano Technologie?!? Sure you have! If not ... google it! :P
Ok... I (or better we) bring a product on the market that will help you to raise the resale price of your car dramatically ... and not only this ... you have noooo troubles keeping it spotless clean with minimal work while owning it.
The secret?!? It's a coating that we apply... It seals your car from any outside effects (dust / water / ...) and gives the color a tremendos boost in shine.
Basically it's very small Nano molekules that build a shild that acts like the leave of a lotus flower. No idea what this means?!? Lotus flower effect?!? Google it ... :P
Try to find a short movie explaining it ... if I'll find one I'll post the link.
Boring project?!? Well ... wait ...

Project number TWO:
Wie***** (edited to keep the tension). I am pretty sure you never heard this name before ... and if then you have either met someone in Germany that coincedently had the same name or you are a car fanatic!
Wie***** is a car manufacturer from Germany. Very exclusive, beautiful, powerfull cars... hand build, with unlimeted color choices that makes each car unique.
Ok... no reason to google it: (stole the link ... follow my blog instead)
Take a look and give me your opinion... would really apreciate!
And if you are seriously interested or just want to see the car in real life then let me know so I can give you an invitation to the official launch in Kuwait in September (en shallah).

My internet connection here sucks... so I will post some pictures of Wie***** later with a better connection.

Till then... take care and let me pass!! :P
