Zain released their TVC of the Zain Flash Mob that happened earlier this month in the Avenues and it brought back the goosebumps; not only that but I loved loved all the angles! Gave us a better view than those other YouTube videos :P
Check it out!
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.
For those of you who have been complaining about Aramex these past few weeks well I have news for you! Aramex is the lesser of all evils! At least I know that when I have a problem I can contact them via their Social Media and get instant answers (that happened with me when I ordered my iPhone 4S) also I know that once I order something it will come to Kuwait most likely on time and not like these losers!
Posta Plus SUCKS MAJOR BUTT!
Seriously the worst service I have EVER EVER USED! Once you hear my story you will just be outraged by how bad their service is. So here goes:
Back in August I decided to subscribe to them after hearing some (and by some I mean 1-2 ) good reviews and there were no bad reviews out there. I thought “Wow! This might be a service which I can get behind and actually use, its fast and cheap!” And boy was I wrong! The sign up process was easy but the rest was horrible. The only good thing that came out of the whole ordeal is that my bill is the lowest ever!
[WARNING: Long post rant ahead!]
A few days ago I received an introductory email about one of the newest Kuwaiti businesses out there “Not Yet Vintage.” They provided me with a small brief synopsis on the website in order to get us to understand the idea.
Not Yet Vintage is a community for vintage lovers. Buy products or sell your own through us, whether new or a bit used, we do it all for you and all you have to do is RECEIVE. People acquire products that may be used or still brand new, but instead of throwing them out, or keeping them in storage, you can make $$ through us!! If you have products which have prospects of being vintagy, (having that classic flair), contact us through our HELP page or email@example.com, and within 48-72 hours your products will be available on our website, for the whole world to see! The process is so very easy: first you price your product/s and send them to our office; second we determine the condition; finally if we think they are NYV (Not Yet Vintage), you’re in! Off to hair and makeup they go! We photograph your products, market, and ship them off! If your product/s isn’t sold, you have the option of getting it back. Can we hear a win-win anybody? If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, ‘Beauty never fades, it only goes vintage.’ -NYV team
In short, I believe the concept is similar to having an eBay account for vintage items, so if you have an item out there which you don’t use anymore and feel that it might have the “vintage” seal on it be sure to send it in and see if it sells. Everyone appreciates an easy way to make some extra cash for that one thing you want but can’t have.
Thanks to the NYV team for sending this in!
So I’ve been back for the past week and a few days and I have been ever since jet lagged to the limit! It’s either that or I am the queen procrastinator (which I also am) you see ever since before I left my clock has been whacked out at the time I was telling myself that I was preparing myself for New York time and the shift there but I think I’m just being too lazy, spending so much time watching shows and turning my brain into a cabbage patch kid than doing anything important but I’m not sure the jury is still out for that verdict.
I came back to the heat, and although I hate it hehe I get to hibernate and that I love hehe until the a/c stops working! Then I start hating everything and everyone. I am really trying to find a solution to my sleeping patterns you see even if I wake up at 10 or 11 and then stay up all day without a nap I can’t seem to sleep (even though I’m dead tired) before 4AM! I don’t know why, maybe I should change the clock on my MacBook Air from New York time to Kuwait time. But I kinda like the New York time since it tells me when my shows are out without having to convert time in my head LOL! :P
Anywho, I hope I get back to this thing called “blogging” I really do! I need to do something useful and I should but I don’t wanna promise myself because I worry that I won’t keep it up. Otherwise, I’m happy to be home (until I start craving some good decent Max Brenner’s Chocolate!)
The second I saw this video via 2:48AM I laughed my head off and started imagining Marzouq as Hitler, I can also be substituted basically whoever did the video is a genius because they covered all the grounds for it except perhaps the censorship!
But in the end it’s absolutely genius!
I have finally come back and I am not really ready to leave my vacation mode :/ I am not ready for work or any of the hassle and heart ache I will experience for now I will simply relive my beautiful days in the US and try to deal with my jet lag and such!
Stay tuned for everything that happened in the US, I promise to write ASAP.
