Kuwait’s Stunning Golden Jubilee Monument النصب التذكاري لدستور الكويت

  

  

  

 Chose HD for best pic vid quality.

Sh. Sabah Al-Ahmad, the Emir of Kuwait, unveiled tonight the new Golden Jubilee monument of Kuwait’s Constitution, located at Martyr’s Park in Kuwait City.

The monument is stunning, breathtaking, magnificent, world class, and 100% superb. We haven’t seen structures this amazing in Kuwait in a really long time. The only other thing I would compare this to is probably the opening of The Scientific Center some 20 years ago.

The monument is located at Martyr’s Park (also known as The Green Belt area), on both Soor Street and the 1st Ring Road, and directly across from the new huge Tijariya tower. The park is public and open to everyone for free, during opening hours of course.

The monument consists of two huge golden slates, located at the apex of a beautiful garden with colorful water fountains. It has several natural looking benches to sit on. I would suggest you visit the park evening time and onwards, to experience both the lights brightly lighting the monument and the colored light shadows on trees and plants.

Note: All pictures were taken with a samsung Galaxy note II. I am really impressed with this phone. Its camera and vid are both great for spontaneous shooting, especially for night time photography.

Lowering a BMW car on top of a high mountain

 

It’s not an easy task lowering a real car on top of a 600-meter high mountain. This vid shows how difficult and dangerous that really is. Artist Jeff Koons created this beautiful BMW art car, which is a real BMW car that’s going to race in the Le Mans next year.

He wanted his car to get the most exposure, so he chose the Pulpit Rock mountain in Norway, the home country of the famous Scream painting. By putting his car on a 2,000-feet high mountain, he made sure the car earned great publicity and exposure, basically guaranteeing him huge fan foot traffic and news.

Marc Jacobs Pretty Little Pink Dress

  

I love Marc Jacobs, but this dress is just silly. I first thought it might’ve been a costum party, but no, these pics were taken as he was leaving the Louis Vuitton – Marc Jacobs: The Exhibition show in Paris.

Shurooq Amin’s “It’s A Man’s World” Art Exhibition

  

The brilliant and hugely talented Shurooq Amin has an upcoming Art Exhibition called “It’s a Man’s World”.

I’m a huge fan of Shurooq. I see her as our greatest modern Kuwaiti artist, who produces the most amazing art, and who is probably the most open artistic talent in the country.

She’s a pure genius, and I’m very proud she’s a fellow Kuwaiti. Her art has really took off in the fast few years, with international exhibitions in many of the trendiest cities in the world. Her pieces are now sold for tens of thousands of dollars.

Shurooq Amin is the artist who doesn’t need any introduction as in the past few years she became the absolute leader of Kuwaiti art vanguard . In her previous show “Society Girls” she unveiled explorative scenes from one half of a hidden society’s world and it was an unexpected revelation that had a strong resonance on the public. In her exhibition “It’s a Man’s World” she interrogates many issues and explores the part of society that had been previously untouchable and non-debatable for its moral and social integrity, focusing on the Man, his habits, his lifestyle and his dreams. It is concurrently an unveiling of man’s hypocrisy as well as a celebration of man and life.

The exhibition will be shown in Salhiya Complex, in AL M. Gallery, from March 5th till April 1st. Click [here] for more details.

Update: An art show of Shurooq got shutdown in March 2012, you can read all about it [here].

Some of the Cars at The Concours d’Elegance

Here are a few pictures I snapped last night at The Concours d’Elegance. I was inside the closed area, while organizers brought the cars in, and were getting the show ready for tonight’s official opening.

When I came back home, I went through the pictures, and I was like wow. There were a lot of amazing cars there. The whole Marina Crescent is filled with beautiful gorgeous cars.

  • The classic cars and the Zagato are in the closed off area, in the area just before Starbucks.
  • Then you’ve got the Bentley race car, the Alfa Romeo super car, some LeMans race cars, some tiny small engine toy looking race cars all show cased around the Marina Crescent cafe area.
  • There’s also a Muscle cars section, a Disney\Pixar stage, some really old (maybe even first generation) Astons and Bugattis all displayed in the area between the Marina Crescent and the Marina Hotel.

I regret not going to Aston Martin’s official Zagato launch, which was going to take place at Salwa hall nearby. But I was late for an important thing, and was already getting bored, and so not in the mood for some stuffy press conference thing. Now I’m bummed. I didn’t know that Kuwait was having Zagato’s world premier launch!

Anyways, The Concours d’Elegance is fun, and has tons of stuff to entertain everyone. You can easily spend a lot of hours around the place, for a really fun day and night. We’re definitely going there again.

Do You Know What Car This Is?

   

  

Update: This is the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale. Thank you Al-Mash3an, Bob, and nameless for breaking my mystery.

I’ll give you a hint.

The guy on  the left, the one with the glasses, is with the Aston Martin team. At least, I think he is. I can’t really remember.

It struck me as odd, because I frankly thought he was Italian. Then again, I could be totally wrong. I’m not very good at remembering stuff, especially when I’m freezing or having a headache, like I was tonight.

Either way, I don’t know what this car is. I’m hoping that one of my readers is fully up-to-date with super-important-cars, and still feels sweet to share the car’s name with us.
