My Prize from the Baby Shower

20110705-102748.jpg

I went to my friend’s baby shower today, and we played a few games there. This was my prize. Even though someone kept on stealing my prizes, smother someone kept giving me her prizes. Of course, those prizes got stolen too, but I did manage to hold on to this one.

I love candles, so I’m super happy this was what I won.

Social Media Club Is Now in Kuwait

I just came from my first ever event with the Kuwaiti branch of the international “Social Media Club”. They were nice enough to invite us for breakfast.

I got to meet a lot of exciting people there; like TV presenter Hessa Al-Mulla, Social Media Queen Hind Al-Naheth, and VIVA’s Head of Communications Ms. Sara.

It’s nice to see people take social media professionally like this. I’ll have a more detailed post later on inshalla.

Good luck guys, wishing you all the best inshalla.

I’ve Got a Surprise For My Readers عندي مفاجأة للقراء هذه الاسبوع

عندي لكم مفاجأة هالإسبوع، انشاءالله تكون حلوة بعيونكم… لأول مرة بتاريخ مدونتي، شخص ثاني غيري أنا بيكتب بمدونتي…. أنا ماني شخص أناني بالمرة، بالعكس، أنا حدي كسولة و شان زين في أحد من زمان إقترح انه يكتب بوست بدالي…. عالأقل أقدر انسدح و أتونس بكتابتهم، بس للأسف ماحصل لحد دلوقتي

انشاءالله يعجبكم بوست الجماعة الجدد…. ما أتوقع نكتب عنه قبل محاري اسبوع، بس انشاءالله يعجبكم… أنا شخصيا جدا سعيدة إنه فيه أحد غيري مهتم انه يكتب هني بمدونتي…. فحيالله زوارنا الغاليين، متى ما شرفونا

Please don’t get over excited, it’s not a competition, and there are no prizes. It’s just, this coming week, I’m inshalla gonna get my first ever ghost writing post. It’s a post written entirely by and at the mazaj of a ghost writer. I have a feeling you, my dear readers would maybe perhaps prefer someone else to write a post every now and then. Let’s see how this one goes, I’m personally excited about it.

Facebook is Losing Millions of Members Every Month

Facebook lost 6 million US members last month alone, while Canada lost 1.5 million members. UK, Russia, and Norway have all lost more than 100,000 members last month. I bet it has a lot to do with the new facial recognition privacy issues Facebook is facing right now. Check out these links (here and here) to see how controversial the facial recognition thing is. The EU has begun investigating it.

So go the reactions to a feature on Facebook that uses facial recognition technology to help users tag their photos. It has people so upset, in fact, that it’s just sparked a probe from European Union privacy regulators.

The uproar revolves around a feature that’s been around since December, so the technology itself isn’t particularly new. But regulators are only getting upset about it now after a Sophosreport pointed out that Facebook has recently turned the setting on by default, apparently continuing the social network’s habit of encroaching on user privacy without asking for permission.

Except this time, the complaints seem to be about issues that aren’t new — and humans are still very much involved in deciding who gets tagged.

In case you’re wondering if this feature is dangerous, Facebook has this to say when you try to disable the feature. Read it and see if you’re comfortable enough with it:

This feature uses a comparison of photos you’re tagged in to suggest that friends tag you in new photos.

You’re always in control of your tags on Facebook:

  • Only friends can tag you in photos
  • We’ll notify you when a friend has tagged you
  • You can remove a friend’s tag at any time
  • Tag suggestions are based only on photos you’ve allowed yourself to be tagged in

This video shows you how to disable it if you want to:

**Happy Birthday to My Dear B**

My Beach Buddies

Speakers, camera, drinks, book, beach, beautiful sea… These are all necessities of a great day.

I woke this morning to the unmistakable humidity smell. That spells a great beach day for me. A quick breakfast at McDonald’s seaside confirmed the perfect water. This meant chale and beach time.

With all the dust we’ve been getting, it’s a wonder to have a good beach day; so might as well enjoy it to the max whenever we can.

Going Fishing

I’m going to take advantage of today’s beautiful weather and venture out to sea for some good 7adag.

Don’t pay too much attention to my pic here, I usually catch much bigger fish. Hoevere, this small fish nagged the hell out of me when scuba diving a couple of years ago… She even latched on to me when I got back on the boat. So serves her right elsara7a (I threw her back at sea btw).

Anyways, have a great weekend. Thank god the weather is ok, we can finally start to enjoy our sea and beach. Make sure you have fun today.
