This is a video about the Saudi Women’s campaign to drive of Oct. 26. I saw it over the news here in California, along with the religious guy who decided that driving will damage women’s ovaries.

I brought 3 cartons of KDD chocolate milk with me to the USA a few days ago, but customs confiscated them all. This isn’t the first time we bring it, but it was the first time it got taken. They said it had to do with the sugar in the milk. And this being the US, there’s no point in arguing. Plus, it’s not that big of a deal with me. I had empty bags, so I asked if anyone wanted me to get anything from Kuwait, and so the chocolate milk wasn’t for me.
Word of advice, it’s not worth taking KDD with you. It weighs 7kg a carton, and takes up a whole lot of room in the luggage.

Britain officially canceled entry Visas to holders of Kuwaiti special and diplomatic passports.
Diplomatic passports I can understand, but to cancel it for special passport holders is unfair to other Kuwaitis. Most special passports are held by members of the ruling family, and they surely can afford to pay the fees like us and also wait in line like us. What’s good enough for us should be good enough for them too. If visa is cancelled for non-diplomats, then should it be canceled for all Kuwaitis too.

2 bedouns and one Kuwaiti. Security at majors malls, especially on weekends and holidays, is incredibly unsafe. Shopping and dining is risky and dangerous. Young men are rude and aggressive. They walk around flirting with non-interesting girls. They walk with their hands down their pants, doing all sorts of indecent stuff in public. We’ve already had a few murders in the past couple of years, next crime will be public rape. And I shudder to think of the consequences of that.
The Police must start patrolling the malls from the inside, have their officers leave chales and private stakeouts of weekend partyers and go work where they really are needed. Around and in malls.

Pope Francis thinks the Catholic Church is too hung up on birth control, gay marriages, and abortion. He wants the church to be more of a “House for All”, rather than a smaller purer church like his predecessor. He’s advocating love and serving the poor.
What a lovely lovely plan. You think we can expect something similar from our own religious leaders? I don’t think so. Not when neighbouring Saudi is still debating whether to allow women to drive or not. Not when Syria’s Free Army beheads Assad’s soldiers in the name of Islam. And definitely not when a Sudanese woman gets whipped and lashed for wearing trousers or not wearing a head cover. Not lovely at all.
His surprising comments came in a lengthy interview in which he criticized the church for putting dogma before love, and for prioritizing moral doctrines over serving the poor and marginalized. He articulated his vision of an inclusive church, a “home for all” [link].

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.
