Kuwait Cartoons

I am about to start a series of cartoons that are portraying life in Kuwait from the perspective of an American contractor living here in 2003-2004.
Unfortunately I am not blessed with painting skills ... but therefore I have Internet! :)
I found these a few years back and kind of forgot about them. Now I would love to give credit to the original artist but I have no clue who/where he is.
Anyways ... give me the credit for showing them and him the credits of making them ... :)

Where to BBQ in Kuwait

I BBQ'ed at home on my balcony, on the beach front in Salmiya, in a 'traditional' tent, on Kubbar Island, at various chalets... but somehow I haven't found the perfect spot yet.
i was thinking about going to Muttla Ridge for a change. Trying to find a spot where you can see downtown Kuwait (if the weather lets you) and the sea. Or maybe somewhere towards Bubyan Island on the beach (I could fish at the same time...)?

Where is your favourite BBQ place in Kuwait?!?
And what's your favourite BBQ food?? (and can I have the recipe please?!?!)

Get In Terms With It!

free⋅dom [free-duhm] - noun: The power or right to act, speak or think as one wants WITHOUT hindrance or restraint

Do not oppress bloggers for they seek freedom,
Do not harass bloggers for they seek support,
Do not verbally abuse bloggers for they expect respect.

We don't mind criticism. We enjoy your feedback's and comment almost all the time. But resorting to personal attacks and threats is not acceptable. Thinking that you have a say over what topics we can and cannot post is delusional thinking, you do not have a say when it comes to that.

Blogging is fun, let's keep it that way.

Stolen from here.
had some problems with the arbic part so i took it out ... :)

Wataniya followed!!

After Zain and Viva, Wataniya now followed!!
I just received a message from them stating that all incoming call (local and international) are without charges for the called person!

Here is what it says:

"Dear Customer,
Wataniya is proud to accompany you into Kuwait's new telecommunication era in which all your incoming National and International calls are free!"

I LIKE !!!! :)

New phone?!?!

I want a new phone!
I currently have the Nokia E90 and I am not happy with it anymore... Maps stopped working properly (and yes... i do have a valid subscription), generally slow in response, ...
i never had a mobile phone that was not Nokia... if I remember right, my first one was a 2110 (back in '95!)... loved it!! Simple and indestructible!
Ok ... today I obviously expect more from a phone then what I did back then...
So now... should I take the step and try another brand?? I am thinking of an IPhone 3G or maybe another Nokia... maybe the N97 that was just introduced...
Maybe you can give me some alternatives to my current E90... it should have bluetooth, GPS, WLAN, 3G or 3.5G, Quad Band and maybe UMTS, a decent cam for pics and video, compatible with MS Outlook, BIIIIIG memory for music and stuff, ... well ... in short .... I want the meanest mobile on the market! Any ideas?!?!

I stumbbled over this ...

Funny how they emphasize the experience with Volvo Vehicles in his past ... he never did work for Volvo before!! I hope all the Volvo owners made sure that their spare parts are really new and not some used crap! And if you are a female Volvo owner ... don't give too much on his flirting ... he does that with every woman that's not out of his sight by the count of three.
Anyways ... Volvo got smarter now ... even though they should have seen it long time ago ...

Taken from the Arab Times Online. See the full article with picture here.

P.S. Can you tell that I really don't want him to stay in Kuwait and continue with his bullshit!?

Don't you ever learn ?!?

Who used to be a good friend of mine long time ago got fired AGAIN...

He was caught stealing used tires from his employer and there was another issue of using the company driver to take care of his personal bullshit... (Volvo / Kuwait)
Before he was fired, being the GM, for making promises he couldn't keep / bad mouthing the CEO in public, with suppliers and customers / abusive language against the owners daughter / trying to take the business away from the owner and jump to another employer to continue the same crap just for better money / basically for not performing at all... (Wiesmann and Nano Refinement / Kuwait)
Before that he was fired for not working together with the rest of the management / for making deals at the side with customers and suppliers / bad mouthing his company / for not keeping his work times / for failing to put in reports / for fooling customers / for not complying to standard company procedures... (Aston Martin / Kuwait)
Before that I think he was fired as well ... but I don't know the reason ... but I bet you it went along with all the other Jobs he had... (Mercedes Benz Trucks / Kuwait)
Before that he was fired for not performing / bad mouthing / racial comments / and a few other things ... (Oshkosh Trucks / Kuwait)
Before that he left Germany with a few thousand Euro debt that the German Government would still like to collect from him ...

It's unbelievable how little you learned within the few years that I know you...
2 years ago I would have done as much as I can to find you something. Now, being smarter and having my fingers burned on you, I hope no one makes the mistake of hiring you again. Kuwait is small ... very small in fact... and you caused enough damage for the little German community that we are here! You ruin our reputation with your non existing ethics... Besides that ... there are not too many Car Dealerships left in Kuwait who don't know you! I think you are trying with Bebehani right now?! Good luck ... because if I know whats going on with you ... they should know as well!

And I better not start with your private bullshit that you fabricated in less then 5 years!!!
I just hope that you treat N. the way you are supposed too and you are not playing games like you did before!

Sayonara *** !!

P.S.: Sorry to everyone except *** ... just had to vent out a little ...
