I took my mom and daughter to my favorite museum Bait Al Othman on our family outing since my mom had never been there. There are some additions to the museum starting with the parking lot, they have added an area that looks like old Kuwaiti houses and it is awesome. I'm not quite sure what they will be once they are completed but I love the idea.

I went shopping at LuLu in Qurain exit 208 and after finishing I stopped by Saveco looking for my protein ice cream only to find the store in chaos with empty shelves.

I started this blog for the expats and those outside of Kuwait who wonder what we do here. So many things have changed, some good, some bad but I miss the early days of first arriving here on February 14, 2004. What a wonderful place and time to be here, not a lot of people, simplicity and nicer people.
Here's to what's to come, cheers!

New year, kids on vacation, not much to do in Kuwait, take a trip to the zoo. That's was our schedule last week since there isn't much to do in Kuwait and we had lunch already. Everything is pretty much the same as the last time we visited last year. There's a lot of construction going on and the elephant's area has been closed and metal siding has replaced the fence, no idea what's going on with them.

I finally got around to seeing a movie at Sky Cinemas in Salmiya, we watched "The Commuter" which was a bad choice but I did enjoy the surround sound system in the theater. The cinema was a little on the small side but it was easier leaving when you don't have 100 people trying to get out after the movies are over.

I use both of those but I'm still not showing every move that I make. Social media is a cut throat world and I see those that succeed if that's what you want to call it and those that are abused by trolls, I would rather watch from the side lines than be a victim. I still don't understand how youngsters look up to social media people, most of them have not achieved anything but acting like they are so happy and buying up ugly "couture" items that make the average person sell their soul just to have what they display.
What an ugly place the world has become, I'm always thankful I grew up before internet, cell phones and social media. I lived by my mom's words "be back by dark" and if I wasn't I could hear her whistle for me a mile away and would run home as fast as I could. We would save up quarters for ice cream and dimes and nickles to make calls from the pay phone.
I often wonder if anyone even reads what I post, does anyone actually care? I do miss getting invitations to events but now those go out to the 'popular' Arabs on social media. This is a new year and I feel some changes coming on that will give me more time to write even if it's only my mom who reads my blog.
For those who continue reading my random posts I thank you and I hope to more blogging, volunteering and general things I like with the normal working hours I will have.
