Nouman Ali Khan coming to Kuwait

If you are interested send an email now as the seats are filling up and once capacity is met no one else will be able to attend.

Al Salam Mall Salmiya

Al Salam Mall is opened with a few stores so far. ICONIC, New Look, Fun City, Riva and a coffee shop are the only places open at this time.

 Lu & Lu is still under construction but from the looks of it they should be opening soon.

There's parking out back but I don't know if there's any underground or not of course once the mall is up and running I think it will become crowded as usual in Kuwait.

Hal Feb Fashion Exhibition 2015

Fashion exhibition taking place at the Hilton from January 28-31

5 died and 47 injured in accident in Abdali , Kuwait.

This happened yesterday, may they rest in peace.

Arabella Complex Kuwait

The Arabella Complex close to bid'a roundabout is another location to visit some of the restaurants only located in Avenues without having to travel the distance. Although the complex is open for business there are some construction going on with fountains and escalator. Of course there is the parking problem that comes along with every new constructed building. It seems the people think parking is an after thought, I mean who would want parking on prime retail space?

 This was the jam on a Tuesday night at 9 pm.
Nice place, horrible parking.
