Zain Celebrates Social Media Day

July 1, 2012  |  Events, Social Media

Zain Kuwait being one of the first companies in Kuwait to fully utilize the true use of Social Media held together a gathering of social media activists whether they were Bloggers, Tweeters, Instagrammers, YouTubers, or simply professionals running their own Social Media companies to celebrate the Global Social Media Day on June 30th.  The event was held in Al Hamra Tower 55th Floor in the Sky Lobby, so not only do you get awesome an awesome socializing event but you also get one with a view!

Upon arriving, Lujain and I met with our friends the other bloggers, hell if I was going to list the number of people I said hello to it will truly be a long post.  But anyways *waves hello to everyone!* The event was beautifully set and catered by local small businesses, there were literally many to list a few: Gelato Italiano, Rice Pudding Factory, Neqsa, Kiwi Bakery, Pick-Yo Frozen Yoghurt, The Pantry, Gathering, Al Foz Kitchen, and Vinox Chocolatier. [For a full list and contact information my pal PinkGirlQ8 has more information of course it’s in Arabic]

Our host for the evening was the amazing, the awesome, the cool (I think I went on enough right? :P) Omar Al Othman or as I like to call him Omarker!  Who gave us interviews with Fatima Al Othman from F20 Designs, Yaqoub Abdulla (the actor), among other individuals.  There was also a raffle that was held in which I actually won something.  I couldn’t believe it really (more on that later).

After that segment one of the amazing individuals on the Zain Social Media Team Mohammed Al Muhaini came back on stage to give us bits and pieces about what this event was about and to introduce the final segment which was the “Sheno Ya3ne” Stand Up Comedy team. We literally had a lot of fun and laughed our heads off.

Once the event ended we continued to socialize and had some awesome num num’s hehe (aka food!) And by that time Instagram came back on (oh wait didn’t I tell you, Instagram was down for more than 12 hours on Social Media Day!) Before we left we got a chance to view a cool video made by Ali Mubarak about Bloggers and Blogging in Kuwait it was hilarious and for all intents and purposes just a parody of what happens in a Bloggers life.

Back to me winning, I was the prize before last and when Omar was calling out my number “584” I actually heard it as “581” so I was ignoring it a bit but Swera nudged me and told me “it’s you go get up there!” so I headed up on stage and picked up my prize which turned out to be an Android Tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, talk about Karma hehe Apple freak winning an Android.

All in all it was an awesome day, I did not snap a lot of pictures simply because I wanted to enjoy myself and mingle around but still I am proud with what I have hehe.  Thanks to the Zain Social Media Team: Hala, Nasser, Mohammed, and everyone else for this lovely evening and hope to see you again next year!
