Kuwait bans photography, pictures only to be taken by journalists

21 Nov


Late last night I found this article, I’m not sure how credible it is since it’s the LA Times but…they are reporting that in Kuwait, the government has announced plans to privatize phone and mail services while at the same time increasing censorship. It has begun shutting down all pornographic websites, and on Saturday, three ministries issued a joint ban on photography cameras with large lenses in public places.

It seems they got their info from here.

This is sad and very disappointing for all of us.

What I don’t understand is, why are we allowed to use mobile phones? They do the same thing. We can all take pictures with those?

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?

Gadgets, gadgets, gadgets…where would men be without their ‘toys’?

For those that are TryingtobeFahad you’ll love this one!


The Adidas miCoach uses heart rate zones to create varied, complete and personalized workouts—it’s essentially a more advanced and personalized Nike+ system. This little fitness gadget also gives you real-time feedback. You can sync miCoach Pacer to adidas.com/micoach to analyze your stats and get coaching feedback online. This is priced at only 70 US Dollars which is great!

 

 

 

 

So, It’s the Nikon D5000 – need I say more?

 

 

 

And this next one, is for all you music lovers! I’m so hyped about this! I can’t describe to you the quality of sound that you get from it! I picked one up in the UK back in summer.

It’s the JVC-RV-NB50 KABOOM! If you love sporting a retro look, then this new iPod/iPhone speaker dock by JVC will really suit your style!

 

Mr Amazon is a genius for creating this next one, when I first saw it on Oprah, I was super excited! It’s Amazon’s EBook Reader, Kindle.

The fantastic thing about this is, when the Kindle first came out, it cost somewhere around 500 dollars, the price has dropped dramatically (which is surprising as it now comes equipped with wifi) to about 300 dollars.

 

 

 

 

It’s the blackberry playbook…nothing like the ipad but hey, give them a break, they are trying…

 

 

So, this year’s gadgets havent been up to much BUT…here’s what we’ve got to look forward to in 2011/2012…

Iphone 5!

3D Sony VAIO

The Verizon iPhone

2011 Nissan LEAF, an ambitious 5 door hatchback car that runs on electricity and purportedly can go 100 miles on a single charge. It will cost around $32,000!

and possibly…another world war..

We really are moving forward…………..scary eh?

Just think, 50years ago, TV’s were black and white.

Iphone just got Icy!

How cool would it be to charge your phone in a charger that looks like ice!!! These are actually made of premium crystal glass, these crystal chargers are each carefully handcrafted It takes several days to completely finish a beautifully clear and polished crystal dock. The charger also works with iPods too.

and now, for the best part, they come in different designs!

The Aurora Limited Edition is a fantastic price at 99kd and the others at 56kd which are just as cute! Let’s be honest! We ALL NEED ONE OF THESE! You can buy them here

It’s almost, Summer!

5 Oct

God, I’ve been sooo busy, it’s ridiculous. Anyway, I’m back now! I promise!

Decided where you are going next summer yet? No,I’m not mad but you need to start planning! It’s almost December! Really! It will be next year before we know it!

Make sure you go picking out the right outfits though……..

The Balmain Spring 2011 collection filled the Paris Fashion Week runways with a variety of punk-rock styles that shocked its viewers. Featuring more safety pins than stitches, the models strutted down the catwalk in ripped tees, studded biker jackets and stained jeans.  – safery pins, ripped tees and studded biker jackets……..so, how exactly are Kuwait going to make this one work? Hmmmm…

What you think? Thumbs up or down?

Zero is NOT a size.

18 Sep

Recently, I noticed mark@248am had blogged about 10 Fattest Countries in the world re: Girls.

Well, here’s what I’ve got to say to ALL of you. Ladies and Gents.

I’m sick and tired of people going on about wanting to be a size 0, a size 2, a size 4, a size 6.

We are ALL different shapes and sizes. AND No, I’m not FAT. I’m not jealous. I just don’t want to ever be smaller than a size 12. Curves are sexy. Big Bums are sexy. Big breasts well, those are annoying BUT…my point is, stop f^&*ing moaning at us about our weight.

Curves don’t equal fat, truth be told, many girls in this day and age are scarily thin and end up with anorexia. If all we have to worry about is a little extra meat well, we should be proud of ourselves.

As for you, MEN, the majority of you may watch your weight, may take pride in your appearance but truth be told, most of you are Jerks and it isn’t your wives that you do it for. Yes, that’s right, I said it.

It’ s very, very hard being a mother, a wife, a daughter and the person that we are expected to be by our partners/husbands/boyfriends. We may not live up to your expectations but do you ever think, you definitely don’t live up to ours??

Ladies do NOT have it easy.

We have to put up with double emails, two phones, calls in the night, un-named names in mobiles……….sound familiar girls? Yes, we have ALOT to put up with ……SO, if we feel like gaining a few pounds and eating a bar of chocolate, leave us the hell alone. We deserve it.

We don’t want to be like this………….

Marilyn Monroe was a size 16 and she was gorgeous!

Please note, the above model is Brazilian Fluvian who is a plus-size model size 16/18 for Elle, isn’t she gorgeous?

So ladies, no matter what anyone thinks of you, PLEASE know that you ARE beautiful.

It just takes one thing to make you a fighter.

This post is DEDICATED TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. You know who you are.

I love you. No matter what anyone else thinks.
