Kuwait had a Japanese Pop culture festival 10 days ago. It was held at Kuwait’s National Library, and was a smash hit.
The festival was organized by Fikra, a local company, with the help of other Kuwaiti youth. The Ambassador of Japan came to the event because of his prior relations to Fikra, and he was the one who supplied the venue through the Cultural council. While the M.O.Youth just sent an undersecretary, and that was the extent of the ministry’s involvement in thr festival.
Anyways, the M.O.Youth took credit of this hugely successful event, and claimed it organized the whole festival. Reducing the efforts of Fikra and friends to that of associates or volunteers. The ministry later half tried to correct this, slightly amending their claim to a more honest one.
The festival took months of hard work and expenses to get it organized successfully. Contacting people and businesses, getting the cubicles and booths setup, organizing the costume and anime contests and prizes, and getting the display objects. All that took a great deal of effort and money.
If this festival was in Dubai, it wold be the kind that gets the personal appearance of Sh. Mohammad Bin Rashid. But here in Kuwait, the Ministry shamelessly robs the efforts of the young youth instead of supporting them. Shame on you.

This is a collector’s item, if it doesn’t spoil or melt on you.
The new version of Android’s OS is called KitKat. Nestle will sell 50 million KitKat Android-special bars to celebrate the deal. Prizes will include Android phones like the Nexus 7, Android shaped KitKat bars, and Google Play credit.
I don’t know if the cars will be sold in Kuwait; but they will be available in Dubai, the UK, and the US among 20 countries.
All pics are taken from Nestle’s Android KitKat Flicker.
Here is the sequel to Viva’s first commercial featuring Kuwait’s golden football team. Here we seem them in top shape, ready to beat Man United. Again, this is another good commercial from Viva. Makes you feel so proud of Kuwait and that golden team.
We’re on a roll today, with a string of amazing commercials. In addition to NBK’s newest one, we now have another great one from Viva. It features Kuwait’s golden football team, that made it to the World Cup in 1982.
The commercial is funny, lighthearted, cute, and adorable all in one. All the old players were legendary, their acting performance surpassing their football one. I strongly suggest you watch it, it is so so funny.
My all time favorite football player from childhood is Jassim Yaqoub, and I was lucky to meet him a few years back . He was charming in person as he was in this commerical. Again, I so urge you to watch it, it’ll remind you of Kuwait’s great days.
The story doesn’t end here, I got the feeling there’s more to come. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
This commercial is much better than NBK’s first Ramadan one shown last week (which you can watch here). It tells a very beautiful story of good old Kuwait and the great rewards you get out of good deeds. I guess you can say I really liked this new commercial.
