That’s the questions everybody asked me, since I was living in Kuwait for a period of time I got used to the maid so much, I relied on her for everything that when I came to Australia it felt so weird to be doing chores. My Australian friends thought it was so strange to have a maid and thought of Arabs as lazy but in Kuwait most of the people I know couldn’t survive without one. My grandma owns three and all my aunties have one but here it’s different, if you tell western people that you have maids back home they call it slavery and cruel. Anyway check out this article that I found on the internet about maids, it’s very interesting, the gulf bank asked as their question of the day on their website.
Looool this picture reminds me of my maid when she tries to take control of everything. I hate when she used to do that!!
Everyone knows that there are a lot of people that do not abide by the road laws in Kuwait, and remember im not stating all of the Kuwaitis, just a certain amount! There really needs to be something more done about this issue because it’s getting even worse by the years. So far in 1 week there have been 5,100 car offences including 78 offences for jumping the red lights.
I don’t think some people understand the level of danger they are putting themselves in …..What’s even worse is that there has been 201 people charged for using mobile phones while driving, that is such a huge number for only 1 week and it has to decrease or a lot of people would be at danger. Arabs are so lucky to be living in Kuwait rather than a western country like me because you don’t have to worry about drunk drivers recklessly driving on the road but it’s still really sad that even if the offences in Australia are compared to Kuwait, the numbers in Kuwait are still higher.
I believe road safety is very important and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. This post was just a warning for all you people living in Kuwait to awaken you and hopefully something would be done about this issue.

Yesterday I went to my brother’s final season soccer match. I had soooo much fun. The score was 5-1, bro scored 4 and assisted the other WOHOOOO sweet victory baby. This is some pictures I toke:
Brothers team lining up to get the medal and the cup
The medals and the cup, brother got best player of the season, he got 68 goals this season while the rest of the team members got only 20 goals and less (see the difference, hehee I’m so proud of him)
After we had a barbeque with the rest of the team’s family, this is the coach cooking the sausages
Finally take a look at that video; this happened after the match, 0.12 hilarious (the guy with the number 10 shirt is my brother)
LMAO, yes that’s totally normal in the middle east *worried face*
OH god I remember the first time I tried green tea, I’m not even going to go into detail….let’s just say most of the day I was in the bathroom vomiting. I don’t know why this happened to me but I’m guessing because I wasn’t used to it or never tried something that tasted that disgusting! I forced myself to drink it each day until it was included as one of my daily routines, why you say…well I’m a health freak and as soon as I researched green tea up I found out so much benefits which is why I fell in love with it
I tried a lot of brands of green tea, some tasted just HORRIBLE while others were so much better in quality. So far my favourite is the Nerada Organics Green Tea, but don’t know if they sell it in Kuwait.

Kuwait contributed $50 million to the World Bank fund supporting the Palestinian Authority Reform and Development plan just yesterday. The donation was made to support the Palestinian people and help them get a better future. Established in 2008, and supported by Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Norway, Poland, and the UK as well as World Bank resources, $657 million of the $706 million fund has already been disbursed.
“The budget support is crucial at this juncture of time and the PA should be able to preserve and carry on with its institution-building and delivery of better public services,” Amb. Sheik Salem Abdullah Al Jaber Al-Sabah said.
Many Australians observe Father’s Day on the first Sunday of September. It is a day for people to show their appreciation for fathers and father figures.
I love you because you’re my father,
But you’re really so much more;
You’re a guide and a companion;
You and I have great rapport.You pay attention to me;
You listen to what I say.
You pass on words of wisdom,
Helping me along the way.Whenever I’m in trouble,
You always have a plan.
You are the perfect father,
And I’m your biggest fan!
