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!
Craving a new gadget? Do you want to smell a brand new gadget being unboxed? Want a new Apple to play with? :P (Of course my own answer to all of the above will be YES YES YES!) Then join the new Zain Instagram Competition to show your love to our lovely shmexy Kuwait!
Yes you heard it right, the top three prizes are so awesome that first place will be a MacBook Air 11″ (must start to gather ideas for taking a picture like right now! I want a new toy to add to my family! Seriously my room is where all gadgets crave to be! They really do they wrote about it on their secret blog :P Seriously!) So first place is a MacBook Air 11″ and second and third place prizes are a Canon EOS 550D Camera. Now who can say no to that?
A week ago (February 5th 2012 to be precise) I was invited by the lovely people from Khaleejesque, one of the first online “Khaleeji” lifestyle magazines to unveil their very first print issue at 360 Mall which is now available practically everywhere.
The event featured printed pages from their magazine showcased in 360 Mall with everyone going around checking out the beautiful artwork/photography and getting a chance to meet with the lovely creators. I arrived that day early and got a chance to speak to most of the lovely people behind this venture. I spoke with Fouz Al Sabah one of the main team members and the creative director, and got to understand that they are aiming to release this magazine as a quarterly issue aimed at being more of a “coffee-table” magazine rather than a time-bound magazine you see everywhere. They want to give their readers pieces which will always be there and have some amazing pictures to go with them simply so you can save that magazine and refer back to those images and well they didn’t fail in that area at all.
Seriously it’s Vampentines! No flowers, no candy, bah humbug! I’m the Scrooge of Valentine’s Day but I did get something awesome, smoking hot pictures :P
Damon Salvatore (a.k.a. Ian Somerhalder) wishing me a Happy Valentine’s day by telling me that he finds me ‘compelling’ seriously OH EM GEE! *Swoons*
But wait that’s not all….
Growing up in the 90s I was surrounded by amazing singers (well not surrounded in the physical sense but more or less the non-physical for lack of a better word) I grew up listening to Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Tupac Shakur, Ja Rule, DMX, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Craig David, Brandy, Monica, and so many more but my ultimate favorites in my early teen years was Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. I distinctly remember going home from school popping in Mariah Carey’s latest cassette album “Butterfly” increasing the volume and singing along (off tune of course but still I loved it). But we’re not talking about Mariah Carey here, we’re talking about Whitney Houston whose voice was truly indescribable and who will always be remembered as “The Voice” as well as “The diva to end all divas.” Whitney gave us classics such as “I Will Always Love You,” “Greatest Love of All,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (who loves me),” “I Belong to You,” “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “My Love is Your Love,” “When You Believe,” and so many more.
Her album “My Love is Your Love” was and always will be my favorite of them all. Whitney, you will forever live in the songs you have left behind. On Saturday at around 3:55 p.m. Whitney Houston was pronounced dead by the paramedics in her room in the Beverly Hilton hotel. The hotel where she was staying on the eve of the Grammy Awards. The cause of her death was unknown but an investigation was being conducted to attribute the cause of death. Her death came as a big shock as she had just performed 2 days earlier and was seen to be in good spirits. But one never knows. I was preparing a Tribute Page dedicated to her at work today with my colleagues and came up with the beautiful gem you see below. But one thing stood out while researching her life and reading the different articles out there, a quote Whitney Houston once said to Diane Sawyer in an interview, it stuck and resonated with me, and made me think of how true it was on all accounts.
The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy.
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
It has been a while and I’ve been meaning to write but I kept procrastinating and postponing the transfer of the photos from my camera to my computer and when I did, I enjoyed my Instagram shots more than anything else but I’m slightly off topic here. Let’s start over.
Earlier this year, the blogging team from 7ajidude invited us to celebrate the winner of “The Cutest Baby Blogger Instagram Challenge” at Vinny’s which is located in 52 Degrees in Al Tilal Complex. So on a Thursday evening of January 5th Lujain, my sister #3 (aka Your Battlefield) and I headed over there to have a lovely dinner with friends and well I can honestly say that they are more like family as well.
My sisters and I arrived very early, even Dudette wasn’t there yet but nonetheless we took it as an opportunity to walk around a bit and have both sisters of mine get scared from a cat (yes they don’t like cats). But soon enough Dudette made it and started setting up when we were just walking in. The place was beautiful and all ours! We monopolized the place to the final extent, Vinny’s had provided us with lovely name badges (not that most of us needed them) but Dudette did the most awesome thing by placing comments underneath each one :P I was known as “The Sabyak Baby with Garfield Touches” (roughly translated as ‘The Tomboy baby with Garfield touches’).
