My Little Sister is Published!

April 25, 2012  |  Doing Good, Family

I can’t believe it but I’m so proud of my little sister! No not Lujain, the real little one, the one called “Graphics Face” she is also the artist formerly known as “Sister #4″ Najeebah! The one and only who designed a majority of my headers and is the author of that couch up there, she made it from scratch!

Anywho, back to the main topic, Lil N or as I call her Jeebs is now published in Imprint an Online Community for Graphics Designers for book covers she designed.  Checks them out!

I see this one going places.  I am proud of all of my sisters equally and definitely hmm what was that word, gosh darnit I forgot in short I’m uber proud and insanely happy to have them share my DNA :P Yes idiots you share my DNA and since I’m the oldest it means that all your genius is part of mine HAHAHA! Seriously every genius thing you did I get a share of because I gave you the modified gene :P

So join in me in giving Jeebs a hand and hoping to see more publishings of this little one!

[Events] Wataniya’s Give Kuwait Campaign

March 20, 2012  |  Doing Good, Events

Last week on the 12th of March I was invited by the lovely people of Wataniya Telecom to find out more about their new “GiveKuwait” campaign. It was a nice event held at the Japanese restaurant Tatami (I have never been a fan of Japanese so I opted out of eating anything that night). At the event we met the lovely team behind this project and were briefed about the major points in a short format, we were also able to ask questions and have a one-on-one chat with different team members.

Technology Sunday

February 12, 2012  |  Doing Good, My Life, Things I Love, Work

Every Sunday you can check out my Technology page in the Al Watan Daily Newspaper (English Version of course) and well I’m proud of it, I love doing it.  Picking out the awesome stories that you see, choosing the App of the Week (it’s based on what I think would trend or something you guys miss out on not necessarily based on anything else).

This week I just loved how the page looked and thought I’d share it with you! With an exclusive interview with the General Manager of IT Sales of Samsung Gulf Electronics.  You know you guys should pick up this newspaper whether online via the website or physically it is cool.  During the week I prepare the Entertainment news and I instill as many TV newsbits as I can! [Check out the online PDF of the Tech Page]

So don’t miss out.  Seriously don’t or else!

I’m not kidding.

No seriously I’m not!

Bon nuit :D

Proud of the Avenues Flash Mob

February 8, 2012  |  Doing Good, Fun, Kuwait, Reflections

Last week was filled with election hoop-la and stress but what most of you have probably heard about a lovely thing happened on Friday afternoon at the Avenues Mall.  A group of Kuwaiti youth (I think they all would classify as that) men and boys and with the inclusion of a girl who lip-synced a part of the song were seen performing a “Flash Mob”.

Most of you probably know about Flash Mob’s from YouTube and certain movies (read: Friends with Benefits) and thus this wasn’t a new phenomena to see.  The new thing about it is how it was beautifully put together.  My colleague and friend at the Newspaper (Onilda Fernandez) [Article] wrote a lovely piece about how it all came out to be.  Did you know that it took 2 months to put together and that the young men were all too stressed out from rehearsing but the day of the Flash Mob they felt happy because of the interaction that happened with the audience?

I for one am proud of what they did; the only thing I missed out on was some of the Kuwaiti Songs that I loved while growing up and having a bit more of a musical ooomph (you know ranging from slow to fast to slow to fast again :D) But nonetheless I wouldn’t have wanted it to be any different.

Pledge: Help Save Baby Fahad’s Life

February 8, 2012  |  Doing Good, Shout Outs

Our dearest friends Danderma and Q8Rain have once again brought to our attention another child in need.  Remember little Abdul Kareem who was facing amputation due to the lack of funds to have his surgery well Danderma has brought it to our attention through an email that there is yet another child, a baby who is merely 7 months old and needs your help.

Fahad

Remember the last time when we tried to help the cancer patient Abdul Kareem and we made quite a buzz and he actually got several sponsors?  Well today there is another case.  Having a sponsor is their last hope.  Check out this little adorable little baby, his mother is a Kuwaiti and his father is Syrian.  He has leukemia and needs bone marrow transplant to live but none of his family members are a match.  Therefore his only hope is a donor, which has been found in India yet he needs a sponsor to donate 37,000 KWD (Thirty Seven Thousand Kuwaiti Dinars) so he can have the surgery.  Please spread the word, your help can give this adorable child a chance at having a healthy life Inshalla. (Danderma)

If you want to learn more or know anyone who is interested please check Danderma’s post or contact Q8Rain on her blog or by emailing her directly at Q8rain@gmail.com or via Twitter @Q8Rain.

Note: A generous donor has already donated the amount of 9,000 KWD but we are still short the rest.  This is for a good cause so let us help this child.
