Saudi Telecom co., Mobily, just announced that it will offer free data roaming in Egypt and the UAE for its data plan subscribers. Prices are very cheap compared to Kuwait: 1 Gb for kd 8, 5 GB for kd 17, and unlimited data usage for just kd 30. These packages are the local plan packages, with the added benefit of using them abroad.
When will be getting this in Kuwait? All of our local telecom companies operate in neighboring countries, so we should at least get GCC and Sham area coverages with Zain (Bahrain, Jordan & Saudi), VIVA (Saudi), and Wataniya (Qatar).

In this new version, there’s a lady singing. She appears twice in the video, which in my opinion is a much better version than the “all men” one we saw a week ago. I didn’t like that version very much.
Kool effort Zain.

Zain achieved a net profit of $1.03 Billion for the 2011 fiscal year, vs. $1.02 billion in fiscal 2010. Despite Zain’s inability to positively increase its profits for last year, a billion dollars is still a billion dollars. It’s a super major achievement in these terrible economic times. Way to go Zain, Congratulations.
Word is Zain intends on distributing cash dividends of 65 fils per share, so congratulations to all Zain shareholders.

Update: Several people have informed me that only VIVA and Zain are authorized by Apple to sell iPhone in Kuwiat. I wasn’t sure of this, but then I found the confirmation on Apple’s KW site. Here’s the [link] to confirm.

تم الغاء صفقة بيع زين السعودية الى تحالف المملكة و بتلكو، و ذلك لرفض البنوك تحويل مديونية زين السعودية من شركة زين الأم الى التحالف الجديد
و بالتالي نرجع مرة أخرى الى المربع رقم واحد مرة أخرى…. و أتمنى من شركة زين الكويت الكف عن محاولة بيع زين السعودية، و أن تعكف جديا على محاولة تحسين أداءها و تطويرها الى مصاف الشركات الناجحة و الرابحة…. و ربما بهذه الطريقة الصحيحة بالعمل سوف تقوم بجذب مشترين جدد و الذين يسعون بجد لشراء الشركة

Before I begin commenting, I have to express my sincere admiration with the setup, props, customs, and lighting. What we saw today was a magnificent play, done so nicely and to a really good standard. I don’t think we are accustomed to this level of standards in Kuwaiti theatre, especially not in the past few years (or decades).
The stage had huge props, with even bigger setups. We saw a train, a full market, water fountain, palace, huge bedroom, small forest, an orphanage, and a whole lot more. The play pays homage to Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, but with a musical flair and a happy ending. The play has a sweet storyline, that nicely develops as the play progresses on. This is a musical, so expect everything to be sang out. There’s no dialogue.
Zain: To a Beautiful World musical is a fun, super kiddy friendly family musical. It has one of the best stage setups I’ve seen in a long time here in Kuwait, and is very entertaining to watch. It’ll be shown 5 times a day, and I highly recommend you book for it. Click here for booking details. Click here to view a longer segment of the play.
As for the stage, we sat in the 10th row (center) and the view was amazing. I would say the view would still be as good even at row 15 or perhaps even 20 (just make sure you stay center). So don’t worry if you can’t get front row seats, because even the rows down further are good.
One last thing: Thank you Mr. Mohammad Al-Muhanini for this kind invitation.
