Sometimes I think it is completely useless to own a sports car in Kuwait. The dealerships rip off you off for every drop of oil, spark plug and faulty light (but sir, your car will explode if you don’t change your brakes every month). Then you have the budding Schumachers of Kuwait; who are usually […]

Someone left a comment on my previous post about the non-existence of Hala-February. The first comment: Hala February Festival 2007 is launched again after establishing itself as a distinctive feature of both tourism and shopping at the local and regional level. An overview of the events and activities achieved previously and sizable public interaction proves […]


Have you gotten your loved one a Shani today?


I finally got the time to post my pictures of the ‘Ferrari Anniversary’ on my Flickr page. My camera ran out of battery and I started using a friends camera; I will be adding more shots when I get the memory card. Al-Zayani had a ‘Ferrari Day’ to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Ferrari worldwide […]


Hala nothing.

02Feb07

I got a phone call from one of my Saudi Friends asking me about Hala February. And to be honest, I don’t know much about the ‘festival’ itself. So, I turned to my primary source of information for all things important, google. I googled every possible combination (and typo) of the words: hala, February, festival […]


I just got back from Bahrain/GulfRun.. and the trip was a blast. The road to Bahrain was allright; I would rate it a 6/10.. they are working on a full two lane road which should be open by them time we do this again next year. The borders were semi-busy; we managed to get by […]


GulfRun is a yearly ‘rally’ that starts off in Kuwait with the cars going to Bahrain and back for the weekend (think mini-Gumball). The F1 circuit has been reserved for a friendly competition between the participating cars. I just finished getting my car ready for this years Gulfrun; although Aramex didn’t deliver my roll bar […]


I had a chance to stop by the Red Bull 25 Hour Go-Cart race yesterday. Overall, the event was not as organized as the previous year. Some points for next year, if anyone in charge is reading: 1. Get clean gas, as teams found sand in some of the gas gallons. If sand was put […]

I was at the airport this morning to bid farewall to a family member .. but you probably don’t care about that. Anyway .. I was at starbucks, talking to family; then I see a bunch of people running out of the departure gates with large bags and tons of Camera Equipment. I realized it […]
