Oula Station Supermarket now Open!

25 Nov


So, seems Oula have opened their supermarket! I think this is great, BUT, what if people start sitting outside ‘beeping’ their horns like they do at the baqalas, this will be a nightmare.
SO, PLEASE, I’m BEGGING you, GET OUT OF YOUR CARS, form an orderly queue and start using the brain that you were born with.

Students in UK protesting because University Fees have been increased……..

I’m not going to say anymore, I think the title of this post says it all!

Time for YOU to help!

24 Nov

The Ministry of Interior has urged blood donators to heed to the requests made by the Central Blood Bank, In a recent statement issued, the bank stated that it suffers from low inventories in blood.

I also received a BB Broadcast and a Whatsapp re this…there is a massive blood shortage.

It could be your child that needs it.

Anyone above 18 years of age can donate blood, provided you produce your CIVIL ID. The blood bank is located behind Mubarak Hospital in Jabriya.

Did you know?

You can donate blood three times a year.

You only lose about 470ml, which is just under a pint.

Donating blood reduces high blood pressure.

You can get more information from here and here.

40 Tons of Food Items Seized

24 Nov

According to Kuwait Times

”The Director General of Kuwait Municipality Ahmad Al-Sabeeh said yesterday that the capital’s municipality seized foodstuffs unfit for human consumption amounting to 40 tons, the biggest in the governorate’s history. Al-Sabeeh said in a statement to KUNA that the municipality’s emergency team seized the quantity in a sting against some depots in which they thwarted an attempt to promote the items among consumers through popular markets or groceries spread among the desert campers.”

Apparently some of the food dates back to 2001…that’s just gross.

Speaking of foods being seized. Could someone let me know if they see Aptamil AR milk, anywhere? Or, has it been seized too?

I have searched high and low and haven’t been able to find it anywhere, switched my baby to NOVALAC but it really isn’t agreeing with him. Would really like to get the APTAMIL AR. I have spoken to the Aptamil Supplier here in Kuwait and they have told me, ‘we have it in stock, it hasn’t been signed for release by the balidiya’….-that was three weeks ago and the situation has still not changed. 😦

You know, I’d just like to say, this isn’t ‘shampoo or cream’…it’s baby food, it’s vital that it’s available.

Where will you be Spring/Summer 2011?

17 Nov

Well, I hope I’ll be somewhere watching The Royal Wedding.

That’s right. Prince William is FINALLY going to make an honest woman out of Kate, or Katherine as he made the announcement to the world, yesterday.

So, here’s my question. Is the lady going to do a flip reversal and start dressing and acting like a ‘royal’?

Here’s Kate in 2008- note: this was for a charity, roller-blade party!

Here’s Kate Wearing a neat skirt suit, she was joined by Prince Harry and Camilla Parker-Bowles at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, when William received the Knight of the Garter – becoming a Royal Knight Companion and the 1,000th Knight in the order.

 

Will she remember to take the labels off the shoes when she gets married? I do hope so.

I wish them all the best. I think they make a lovely couples and she seems ‘normal’.

 

To VIVA or not to VIVA

17 Nov

VIVA have confirmed that they will be opening a branch at 360 Mall! Thank goodness! My internet is with VIVA and I’m really happy with it. I never have any problems, except for the recent ‘blocking’ of ‘family-friendly’ sites…but they confirmed that was not their fault and was a decision by a higher authority…

It’s got me thinking, my cellphone network is with Zain and well, I’m just not happy with them at all.

I’ve been a loyal customer to Zain for the last 5 years but really, perhaps it is time for a change.

I need to find out the offers with VIVA, if they offer any ‘freebies’ and get some feedback on their service… Anyone have any feedback for me? Goor or bad appreciated…

Kuwait hospitals on alert

16 Nov

According to the Kuwait Times Kuwait hospitals are on alert for possible outbreaks of swine flu (now known as H1N1)

Well, a worker from the hospital has anonymously spoken to the Kuwait Times…well that’s just silly because, aren’t hospitals ALWAYS on alert?

Of course, winter season is coming in, flu season hits us all hard so I think instead of reporting ‘silly’ things, the Kuwait Times would be better printing an article ADVISING the public to be on alert and INFORMING them of ways to stay safe…yani, wrap up warm,use hand sanitizer where possible and trash all used tissues.

Here’s some of the article

”Hospitals in Kuwait have been put on alert for a possible resurgence of the swine flu (H1N1) virus, according to a hospital official. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the staff member at a local state hospital told the Kuwait Times yesterday, “The hospital is on alert because there is one confirmed case [of swine flu], but I don’t want to mention where or what hospital the patient is being treated in right now.” The hospital worker added that a memo was recently circulated to all the country’s
hospitals advising all medical staff to expect possible swine flu cases, especially at the onset of winter.”

On a scale of 1-10, how angry would you be?

15 Nov

So, above we have three cars, an aston martin, a porsche and Ronaldo’s famous bugatti crash pics. Three beautiful cars…so, on a scale of 1-10, how angry would you be?

The interesting thing about this post is…men and women are going to view it differently..

Men have already said, 10…oh, definitely, 10…and would have been moaning, ‘I can’t believe I crashed the porshe…damnit, I’m going to have to get it completely ‘resprayed’…

Women are saying the opposite…not 10. We would just be ‘thankful’ that we got out safe and alive and requesting that the car be towed and that we never see it ever again.

Right or wrong?
