Ikarus Marine- Ocean Activities

I met the Mustafa, the manager of Ikarus company one night at Marina Crescent while looking over his neon fitted boats. Ikarus Marine is a new company in Kuwait trying to bring the feel of Dubai to the people here. He has boats with neon lights that take people out on the ocean for hour tours, at this time it doesn't include a buffet but food is available for purchase. 

There are characters that come out and entertain the kids as well as music. As I was taking pictures I also noticed his company rents out jet skis and water crafts. The location is Marina Waves if I am correct, I've only seen jet skis being rented but the water crafts are there as well.

They have a website but it is under construction, you can find more information and pictures on their IG @ikarusmarine and snapchat ikarusmarine or call them on 98920706/98921171/61. I really wish their were dhow rides like in Dubai where you go cruising which includes entertainment (guy with albino python and a bird), food and a lady who does henna. That was the best time I had in Dubai which also included wadi bashing.

Husband caught with GF

A woman in Kuwait was shocked when she she saw her husband with another woman in a shopping mall and fainted on the spot.
The husband, who was also shocked, not only ran away, leaving his wife to be attended by the mall’s paramedics, but also fled from Kuwait.

This incident went viral on social media.

Many said that the husband’s reaction is worse than his shameful affair.

Mubarak, a Kuwaiti man, said that no matter what the consequences, he should not left his wife in that condition and run away. “He should have expressed regret and begged her to forgive him. Not run away. He is a coward.”

Abeer, a Kuwaiti woman, felt sorry for the wife. “I can imagine her shock. It must have been difficult for her to see her husband with another woman. How dare he cheat her and how dare he do it in a public place. He doesn’t deserve her and if I was in her place, I would never go back to him. She should seek divorce.”

Noura, another Kuwaiti woman, said the incident shows that the husband is a mean person and that she deserves a better man.

“Good that she found out what kind of person he is. She deserves a better husband, a real man, not this coward.”

-----Oh hell no! If I was the wife, the paramedics would have been called to pick up his battered body, not there to pick me up from fainting.

Kuwait zoo moving to Mutlaa?

“The zoo will be transferred to Mutlaa from its present location in Omariya. It will be much bigger there. I don’t think that the distance will stop people from visiting it, as today the roads are modern and a long drive is part of a picnic far away from the city. Also, Mutlaa will be a residential city and to have the zoo there is better than in a crowded area,”

---Seriously? I don't think I will travel to the border of Iraq to see some animals!

I watched a girl get Kidnapped

I can now add seeing a girl get kidnapped to my experiences in Kuwait.

Last night around 10:30 pm I was out with my friend and her family, we decided on Hardee's by Shaab Park. The weather was nice so we were sitting down outside waiting for our food when I heard a female screaming like she was fighting or something wrong was going on. I turned on my video and headed over to Sultan Center where everyone was looking.

I see a guy in dishdasha picking up his ghutra and agaal heading towards the drivers seat while a second guy in dishdasha was in the backseat holding onto a fighting girl who was screaming and wrestling with the guy in the back, everyone was watching but doing nothing. The guy jumped in the seat and sped off past me as I glanced at the poor girl in the back, he had his hand over her mouth.

As they sped off jumping the curb 4 or 5 guys dressed in jeans ran past me after the car yelling and looking like something was really wrong, about 3 cars sped off after them. I called the police and gave them the tag number and description of the car but I am doubtful they did anything.

It sucks that because of traditions and people being scared to intervene when they see a woman being thrown into a car they think she might be doing something wrong and perhaps it's her relatives taking her. I was a minute too late or else I would have tried to help, it might not be my business for I will never stand by when a female is being beat or manhandled by men.

I do hope she wasn't harmed but it was definitely shocking to see and it leaves me wondering what happened to her.

American busted for Drugs

KUWAIT: Criminal detectives arrested an American expat working at Camp Arifjan with 1,400 envelopes of the drug “chemical”, in addition to KD 72,000 he made from sales. He confessed to receiving the drugs by courier at Camp Arifjan. He said he also manufactures the drug at home.

----I guess he should've remembered the quote 'quit while your ahead.' Now he will disappear for years in the central jail before being deported. The central jail is a scary place for criminals who think they are tough. It happened before, an American got caught with a small amount of drugs and disappeared for years before anyone knew what had happened. Good luck bro!

UPDATE: It seems the other American guy who got caught for drugs was the above guy's friend and they work for Honeywell. They were getting their drugs via APO to APO and obviously some more people in the post office are going down soon. He also had a meth lab set up in his apartment selling meth to the crackhead contractors, drug tests coming soon although meth only stays in the system for around 24-48 hours unlike weed which can take 30 days to clear out.

Side note while we are on the subject of illegal items:

In another development, DCGD busted a network selling imported liquor in Ahmadi, run by a Kuwaiti citizen and four Indians. They had 850 imported liquor bottles. The arrest was made after an undercover agent was sent to buy 10 boxes (120 bottles) of Black Label whiskey for KD 10,000. The Asians used to supply the citizen with the liquor and he sold it.

---That's premium liquor! Check out the huge bottles of Black Label! Someone is going to have a hell of a party in their chalet soon, I mean it will be destroyed by a bulldozer (yeah right).

Saudi husband caught in the act with maid

A Saudi woman could be jailed for up to one year for publishing a film showing her husband flirting with his housemaid in the kitchen, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The unnamed wife had caught her husband flirting with the maid in the kitchen at their house in the Gulf Kingdom and secretly filmed him with her mobile phone.

She then published the film on social media and wrote a caption saying: “the minimum punishment for this husband is to scandalise him.”

‘Sada’ newspaper said the film went viral on social media networks in Saudi Arabia and said most viewers supported the wife.

It also quoted well known Saudi lawyer Majid Qaroob as saying the woman could be jailed for upto one year on defamation charges.

“She faces up to one year in prison or a fine of SR500,000 (Dh500,00) for defaming her husband in line with the law on information technology crimes.

“This law includes stiff punishment for anyone using mobilephones with camera or other equipment to photograph others and defame them,” he said.

----Tisk, tisk! And to think, they want to bring house helpers from Bosnia and Morocco. Men will be men and this will continue to happen not matter what a female looks like. A friend of my sister had a house helper who was quite old, she had stomach pains and when they took her to the hospital they found out she was pregnant. I'm not sure who's husband did it but it was a scandal.

Platinum Gym closed and Ransacked

I took my friend for juice the other day next to Platinum gym on Restaurant street when I looked over at the gym it was dark and destroyed. I don't know what happened only that they have been rapidly expanding or maybe the owner of the land wants them off because they want to build something more lucrative? 

My favorite restaurant Grillo has also been closed down, so many memories. 

If I remember correctly we used to hand out at the bowling alley down in the basement, the good ole' days!
