The new mall strip in Mangaf has opened, filled with coffee and pastry shops. Al Ashira Mall is a nice open air place with a drive-thru Starbucks, Tiger Cookies and Koobs along with random restaurants still being opened.

In June 2015, Monstarium added some of his characters to the wall of the Central Blood Bank in Jabriya. I always thought it was cool and added some color. Recently as I drove by I noticed it had been painted over and is no longer there.

Everyone knows about the fire in Shuwaikh that took a long time to put out, it destroyed the famous upholstery shop, Ehsan and several cars that were inside at the time being worked on. One of them being a Honda NSX which belonged to the owner.
This picture was taken during my visit to the Old Amiri hospital many years ago which shows how the shop looked before it was destroyed.

Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed, ruler of Kuwait from 2006-2020 has passed away after being sent to the US for treatment. May he rest in piece, إِنَّا لِلَّٰهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
I was here in 2006 when Sheikh Jaber passed and now Sheikh Sabah, may Allah haver mercy on them.

This is the first time in my exploring that I found an old Kuwaiti pigeon tower and it was cool. Standing alone surrounded by garbage and piles of sand lies this piece of history. I'm glad I got to take some pictures before it will probably be demolished like most historical buildings and houses in Kuwait.
