So. Saad Lamjared is a Moroccan singer who is nothing less than adorable, I’ll admit. But what happened over the span of the last couple of days is ridiculous. He became ridiculously famous around this region after his song ENTY went viral.


It’s a pretty good song, no joke!

Anyway. He was in Kuwait, or is still in Kuwait, for the opening of TFK in Hamra Mall. We has basically assaulted in the middle of the mall. There are a million videos going around of what happened and the swarm of girls (and guys) around him.

Here are some of them. Enjoy!



Poor man is probably traumatized. People need to learn how to not act in public and be civilized lol. Too funny!

This video came up on my news feed on Facebook, and I thought I would share it. We see modern day slavery everyday in Kuwait, and just because they come from third world countries, no one cares. Those people you disrespect everyday at restaurants, gas stations, on the streets, in the malls, in your own house, virtually everywhere, is someone’s family. That’s someone’s mother. Someone’s father.

Throw a piece of garbage on the floor then bend down and pick it up. Throw it again and pick it up again. Do that 10 times and see how good your back feels. Then imagine someone the age of your father or grandfather doing it for 12 hours a day 6 days a week for about 12 KD. Then being cramped into a room the size of you bathroom with 9 other people.

ElhamdilAllah, we’re so fortunate and blessed to have a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs. Respect one another. These people have left their entire life behind in search of a better life only to be treated like cattle.

So, this video was on the news the other day. Basically, it’s a heartless “teacher” beating his students with a ruler because they haven’t done their homework.

This, obviously, is illegal, and he’s been fired, and honestly should be burned alive. I’m sure there are still schools in the region where kids are beaten with a stick or what not. I just thought I should share this.

Not for the faint hearted!

I was sent this action shot from the Red Bull racing event that took place last weekend. I can see myself! Lemme know if you spot yourself, too! Amazing, amazing footage!

There’s been so much backlash from domestic violence cases in Lebanon (mostly) but in the Middle East as a whole. Now, more than ever, we are hearing about so many murders carried out by angry, and extremely abusive, men beating their wives to death.


An organization called MARCH organizes peaceful protests and rallies in order to show the severity of the issue and ensure the government passes a law protecting women against domestic violence. There have been so many recorded cases of women being beaten to death with a kitchen appliance, being shot, or just being physically beat until they were no longer breathing.



For mother’s day, they launched a campaign with very powerful images that honestly gave me goosebumps. What if it was your mother or sister that was being beaten? It’s a very very sever form of abuse. Taking your anger out on a woman doesn’t make you a bigger man, it makes you a coward.



Women’s Day was used for the good of this campaign where thousands among thousands went down to the streets to protest against what is going on in the country. When there is so much wrong happening, it’s easy to get lost in the turmoil of the chaos in the country.


Men, please man up. Use your words, not your hands. Don’t raise your voice, raise your argument, your knowledge, your respect. It’s so sad that all of this is going on at home.



These are only some of the victims who have fallen in the arms of abusive men who have been abusive, and ultimately killed their wives.

If you follow Hashtags on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve come across the recent uproar for the “NoMakeUpSelfie”.


This began as an effort to raise money for breast cancer research in the UK. It was a very very successful attempt at the beginning where more than a whopping 800,000 donations were made, almost 2 million pounds have been donated thus far. Amazing! All someone has to do is text BEAT to 70099, and they will have donated in 3 pounds.


Girls take a picture (or 50) of themselves with no make up on, upload it with the hashtag #NoMakeUpSelfie, and tag their girlfriends to nominate them to do the same. Of course- this soon turned into girls ultimately looking for attention and fishing for compliments.


Don’t get me wrong-I think the initial idea behind this campaign is amazing. It’s a fun way to get people, mostly women, to donate to a great cause we can all be effected by (men too). But the whole point is lost when selfies are being posted and no money is being donated.


I’m all for natural beauty, but the entire point is being lost. No one is being helped other than the ego of the person posting the photograph. I say we go out and start out own campaign and raise money for important issues in Kuwait. Let’s all make a difference and help one another-in a way other than taking photos of yourself.

Everyone’s always so concerned with all the good they can do for the world, but it always seems like no one ever does anything, right? Wrong!
The amazing team behind OXadventure does just that. Everything they do is for the sake of those less fortunate that us. They plan trips to different places like India and Africa (among others) and spend their time and effort to help people through doing good.
OXadventure was initiated by Kuwaiti youth in August 2013, with the first project under their name completed in December 2013 in India. The organization focuses on globalizing the youth through volunteer work, travel, stepping out of typical comfort zones and educating the youth on the global and local issues that need attention and support.
The ultimate vision of OXadventure is to influence the youth of Kuwait to begin to make positive changes in the world as well as in their own country by shaping their attitudes to stand up and be globalized citizens. OXadventure anticipates a movement amongst the Kuwaiti youth after participating in OXadventure programs, coming out of it with a newfound respect towards humanity, nature and equality. By traveling abroad and by getting out of their comfort zones, the end result will be a team of potential future leaders for Kuwait. There is intent to have an international and a local program, with collaboration amongst universities, high schools, companies and the public.
Over the course of 100 days from April 6 to July 16 1994, an estimated 800,000 to 1 million Tutsis and some moderate Hutus were slaughtered in the Rwandan genocide. A recent report has estimated the number to be close to 2 million.
OXadventure team will guide 10 youth volunteers , in collaborating with SURF (Survival Funds of The Rwandan Genocide) and Dr. Nick Scull (AUK professor and psychologist from FSRI) to help the survivors of the genocide by restoring homes for the victims. This would include painting, cementing, and roofing, supplying furniture or repairing old ones, and generally creating a better quality of existing life in rural Rwanda just outside of Kigali. For half of the day, participants will be restoring and interacting with the locals. During this time they can get to learn the local women’s crafts and daily lives. In the evenings they will work closely with the Rwandan students to work on their CV’s and business proposals.
Amazing, right?
The Highlight of trip is that they will be working with academic media students in AUK to do a documentary for the trip as internship for the students. We will show the amazing effort of the Kuwaiti youth as they help those in need to live more comfortably. At least two professional Kuwaiti youth photographers are coming along on this trip to capture the experience in every step of the trip through photographs on high-resolution cameras.
Once the volunteering project, documentary and photographs are done in Rwanda successfully, OXadventure will organize a highly promoted event in which we will debut the documentary and showcase a photo gallery of the trip. Professional speakers and experts will attend the event and give a presentation, discussing the genocide and sustainable development, followed by speeches from the participants who will share their experience in Rwanda.
They’ve made efforts to reach out to fellow Arab countries, like Syria, in this dire time of need. Guys, what you’re doing is amazing, and I am so proud that local youth have accomplished so much on their own!
Anyone and everyone who has ever wanted to do good should sign up with OXadventure. It is 100% nonprofit organization.
For any further questions, or to ultimately sign up to go on this trip and help recreate someone’s life, you can e-mail them on [email protected] or visit for more information on the trip and what exactly this adventure will consist of!
