Car Accident in Kuwait

The other day I was reading when I heard a loud bang outside the window, I rushed to see what happened fearing someone had hit my car as the luck I have had with it lately includes getting hit twice while parked outside the house so I parked it in the dirt area only 5 feet from this accident. It wasn't my car but the OSN guy had hit the back of the neighbors FJ when she pulled out from the parking, her car had a scratch and his car, well, as you can see suffered.

It was so hot and considering the police department is like 5 minutes one would think someone would arrive quickly, right? Nope, not in Kuwait, even if it happened in front of the police station it would take forever for someone to show up. Finally, after 40 minutes the cops come, park their car, get out, take a  look at his car and obviously told them to go to the police station.

As usual, the cops wait a minute and then take off to station, maybe. The poor OSN guy's car was trashed and couldn't be moved. The female rode off in her and the neighbor's driver was nice enough to give a ride to the OSN guy. The police just leave you in the street and don't care if your car is damaged or not.

I've had it happen to me before, a Kuwaiti lady slammed into my car pushing it into the median and tore it up. Once the cops came they looked and yelled at me to go to the station as they escorted the Kuwaiti lady leaving me behind. I had to pull out the fender because it was rubbing my tire but no one cared because I was an expat. Once I got to the station I was questioned by some huge muscle head guy asking if I spoke Arabic and throwing my CID at me to go make a copy. It was an awful experience as usual when dealing with police departments as an expat.

If you can avoid an accident do it as to avoid the police station!!!

Americans caught taking pictures of mosque in South Surra

The Hawally police have arrested two Americans clad in Afghan costumes, reports Annahar daily. They have been handed over to the State Security because they were caught taking pictures of a mosque in South Surrah.

The arrest came after a citizen complained to the police. During interrogation the Americans have reportedly told police they were taking pictures for sale.

Seriously?! They should be deported for stupidity!

Kuwaiti Kid uses bird as a kite

I heard something going on downstairs and this is what I found. The landlord's son or grandson using his bird as a kite. I yelled at him but he kept doing it, finally he took the bird inside but I could hear the poor thing squawking inside as well.

Paris Hilton Plane Crash Prank


Now she's suing over the stunt because she's afraid to fly. I guess no one will be pranking foreigners any time soon because they can sue, the Arab folks just laugh but not Paris Hilton.

'Paris Hilton is telling business associates ... she will sue the people responsible for putting her on a plane that appeared to be in crash mode ... just to get a rise out of her. 
We're told Paris is furious over the stunt ... in which a TV crew got the pilot to pretend to shut down the engines in her plane, and then nose-dive to the ground. Paris says she was in mortal fear for her life ... something the video pretty clearly shows. 
Our sources say she's "totally freaked out" over flying anywhere ... something she's required to constantly do. She's already called her lawyers to find out who's responsible, and they told her she has a solid case for emotional distress.
Paris tells them she had absolutely no clue this was a prank ... she wasn't in on it. She also doesn't believe anyone in her camp was involved.
An Egyptian TV show host engineered the prank as they flew over Dubai.
And Paris says ... it was a lot worse than it looked on video. She says the plane almost hit the water during the dive and then steeply pulled out of the dive, almost doing a loop as it ascended.'

Lu & Lu- Rotten Produce

Once again when I get home from shopping at Lu & Lu in Qurain I find the produce is rotten. Last time it was the potatoes and onions and now tomatoes, I wonder how they store the produce? The top of the box looked fine and once I look at the other side they were rotten. I guess I will have to stick to buying loose items instead of boxed ones, Has anyone else had this problem?

Plan details of terrorist group in Kuwait

KUWAIT CITY, June 25: The Criminal Court adjourned until July 9 the issuance of a verdict on State Security Case Number 8/2014, known as ‘the Islamic State in Kuwait’ case, in which eight people are involved.

At the same time, the results of investigations unveiled dangerous and surprising information that the most treacherous terrorist group is not too far from the country; hence, the necessity to issue laws to control the situation.

It has been discovered that among the aims of the group is to destroy the ruling system in Kuwait, expand its power to neighboring countries, and commit all forms of hostilities to confront anyone who stands against them.

These developments seem to prove the members of this group are planning to make Kuwait a launching pad for their plan to wreak havoc in other countries. According to State Security officer, two of the accused — Ali Al-Hubeishi and Nassar Mohareb — travelled together on July 31, 2014.link
