رصدت الكاميرات الرئيس التشيكي فاتسلاف كلاوس وهو “يســـرق” قلــما أثناء مؤتمر صحافي ويخفيه في بدلته أثناء مؤتمر صحافي في امريكا اللاتينية.ا
وقام كلاوس بفتح علبة القلم الذي كان أمامه ثم التقطه بيده اليمنى ومنها إلى يده اليسرى ثم أخيرا إلى جيب بدلته. وظهر هذا الفيديو على اليوتيوب الشهير وبلغت نسبة مشاهدته أكثر من نصف مليون مرة, اضحكتني الموسيقى كثيرا ا

HUGE billboards posted by fundamentalist American Christians across Dubai proclaiming that the world will end on May 21, 2011 (Judgement day) according to the Bible, which shocked many and frightened others.
I was little surprised that Dubai government had allowed such billboards to be displayed. Though they have decided to have them removed.

If you thought that Burj Khalifa (818 meter) in Dubai is the tallest structure ever, think again. Apparently, there are several taller than Burj Khalifa towers are currently in-progress. In Kuwait, the proposed Mubarak Tower at Silk City (Hareer City) will be 1001 meter high !
Again in Dubai, there is a new massive tower called Al Burj (1050 meter high) in the pipe-line.
Finally, this one beats them all. In Saudi Arabia in Jeddah city, they have started the construction for prince Al-Waleed’s Burj Al-Mamlaka (Kingdom tower) which will be 1 mile high (1600 meter) with cost of 30 billion dollars !
This makes me wonder if this is a way to show the technology structural engineering had reached or simply a matter of vanity ? I’ll leave the answer to you.

We had a really enjoyable visit to Dickson House Cultural Center at Sharg area today. Its located opposite to Sharg Market and the entry is free.It’s my first time to be there, and I’m sure that many have not yet visit it even though its been there since Kuwait’s semi-colonial history. Dickson House was built in 1870, and its the house of the first British political agent Colonel Dickson (1929-1936) in Kuwait, who then worked for the Kuwait Oil Company after he retired from the British government.Colonel Dickson passed in 1959, but his wife, Dame Violet, also known as Umm Saud stayed in Kuwait in their family home on the Gulf Road until she passed away in 1991 at the age of 92. Many people in Kuwait still remember Umm Saud, as she was a fixture in Kuwait up until the invasion.Stepping inside, took me back decades back and me feel like am living in the past with all those artifacts photos hanging on the walls, old books and of course the original decorations and interiors.The house had ground floor with rooms containing photos of British agents, and the Amir Sheikh Ahamd Al-Jabir, also old currency notes and old swords and rifle.Outside there was a small courtyard with classic car parked, I think it belongs to Colonel Dickson. Upstairs was the Dicksons’ living quarters, it reflects how this elderly English couple lived among Kuwaitis back then, really interesting !I hope they do their best to preserve such a precious historical monument. If you haven’t yet visited Dixkson House, do because you’ll enjoy it

On more than one occasion I’ve noticed some buses with really reckless driving that could really cause a bad accident ! Ok I know hyper speeds, crossing red lights, using messaging and car flirting are also major reasons, but reckless public buses seem to be another arising reason.
Today on the 3rd ring road, I was waiting in-line for my turn to take the U-turn, when a bus that I thought was going straight suddenly turned to get into the line, it seemed as if the bus driver didn’t want to wait, I had to push on the brake quickly to give him clearance other wise he won’t stop !
What made it worse is that he was careless enough to not even give a turning signal, thankfully I was alert. Beware of reckless buses !
