I took my mom and kids to visit the Ahmadi park and zoo provided by KOC and stopped by the new complex to see if it had opened or not. Pinkberry, Starbucks and IHOP are open while Raisin Cane's and Blaze Pizza are due to open soon. There's an entrance on the side where the security gate is, I'm assuming it's open for everyone not just KOC employees.

When I called from my phone it went thru and she asked for a manager in which the guy replies, there's no manager until Sunday, she proceeds to tell him about the missing items and he says she will get a call back which never happened. She called again yesterday morning and has not received her items or money even though she said she would call beladiya.
Has anyone else had this happen? My concern is that there's a lot of people who don't realize they have missing items and maybe their helpers receive the items and never check for missing things which means this company may be ripping off people without them knowing. FYI folks, if you order anything from online make sure you check them out before the guy leaves!!
UPDATE: They finally reimbursed my sister the money for the items they had out of stock but more than three days and several phone calls isn't customer friendly.

As Ramadan approaches make sure you follow the rules of the month which include:
-No eating/drinking, smoking or chewing gum during day light hours or you will find yourself arrested, 100 KD fine and sitting in jail for the entire month.
-Nothing will get done in the Ministries as work slows down to about 1% if you actually find someone present it doesn't mean they have the energy to process anything and might tell you to come back tomorrow.
-Be careful on the roads when sunset approaches, people are speeding home to break their fast and have no consideration for others
-Restaurants will not be open during the day
-Most businesses will now have a Ramadan schedule so call ahead to make sure they are open

One would have to make many trips to the connecting Al Shaheed Park to see everything. Even though I went to the recent location of the park I missed the back section where the small scale model of old Kuwait was. I showed my daughter how the landscape once looked like and how her grandparents lived.
People who live close to the park are lucky, they get to visit it more often than those of us living in the opposite areas.

The other day while visiting my friend in Boulevard park her daughters surprised me with churros and chocolate, yum. There's a cute little coffee stand near the dangerously steep bridge that leads to the park areas.

This is what happened when I applied for an admin job with a new nursery in Egaila, not only does she discriminate against women wearing hijab like myself but also against Kuwaiti children and yes, she is Kuwaiti as well.
