Lotus Car in Kuwait

This is the first time I see a Lotus in Kuwait.

My Baby After it’s Bath

   

What a royal shame. The day I decide to give my baby a good scrubbing is the day we get 40 km\hr dust winds. Look at my baby. There isn’t a trace of cleanliness anywhere on it.

But seriously speaking. I am more interested in its interior cleanliness; seat washing, carpet shampooing, and all the rest of interior cleaning works. Well, I got the car back and it only cost me KD 20, which is  a damn great price. But hey, you get what you pay for.

Ok, here’s what I like: The seats, the carpets, the dashboard, and the steering wheel are all polished and shiny and back to their original colors; especially the carpets and seats. The wax scratches on the exterior are now gone; the car has a faint, but beautiful, shiny body. I love the price and the fast friendly service. They even asked us to get the car back to them when the dust settles down, so that they could give it a good polish.

Now here’s what I didn’t like: The seats, dashboard, steering wheel, and A\C vents are all greasy and shiny; they look like they’ve been oiled. And the car has a weird “air freshener” smell. For someone who hates perfume and only likes great quality dehen 3oud; I found the smell sickening.

I’m going to need a couple of good clothes and a vacuum to get over those small negative stuff, and I’m hoping that the smell will fade away in a day or so.

Sorry I couldn’t get any interior pics, the weather is just too damn dusty. I’ll update the post with interior pics once I get the chance to.

My Baby is Getting Washed Today

I haven’t ever gotten any of my cars detailed before, like in terms of shampoo washed seats, carpet, etc…. So I really don’t know if they do a good job here in Kuwait or not.

Anyways, I felt that this particular car, which I fondly call my baby, needed a really good wash. I take her with me through torturous beach and desert adventures. So it’s no wonder that it needs a good scrubbing.

A friend of mine took her to a washing station in Shuwaikh last night. I’m really nervous about the seat shampooing, because I don’t know if it’s going to negatively affect the leather when exposed to the hot Kuwaiti sun. I’m so scared that the leather will crack in the next few months, with Kuwait’s strenuous heat. Or that the carpets would smell of mold. I don’t know what to expect.

I’ll let you know how it goes. The garage needs a whole day to clean it.

Saudi Kid Making Fun of Women Driving

WTH is wrong with his parents. Is this a way to raise your kids, teach them to be nasty and intolerant at this young age. They say the kid is Al-So3ood. If that’s the case, then I say let his parents adopt this narrow point of view; and leave the rest of the Saudis out of this nonsense. It’s time for Saudi Women to drive already!

Watch Fahad Al-Butairi make fun of this kid:

In Support of Our Saudi Friends

(CNN) — Saudi women have been encouraged to challenge the status quo and get behind the wheel Friday.

The initiative is called “Women2Drive,” a campaign demanding the right for women to drive and travel freely in Saudi Arabia.

Though there are no traffic laws that make it illegal for women to drive in Saudi Arabia, religious edicts are often interpreted as a ban against female drivers. One female motorist spent more than a week in custody in May, supporters said.

The day was expected to be a test of wills, and authority, between police and the campaign, which has been publicized by Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

Flying Objects Waiting to Happen

The pickup truck has a lot of stuff that are just waiting to fly into my windshield. I don’t think those stringy robes are going to hold anything in.

I’m just going to let him drive far away from me, or let him pass the traffic light while I stay back. Better to be safe than sorry, if you ask me.
