No Entry From Back

Backstabber + Liars = $$$$$

I hate such people and the worse is when you see such people to come from people who are related to you. When they come and attack you for no good reason and try to spoil your relation with your friends.

Do the backstabbers think they will get 2 extra medals or do they lie thinking they will reach the highest mountain but no...excuse my french your place is under my feet!

Stop for Prayer!

A Kuwaiti advert to encourage people to pray, whatever they may be upto! The campaign was called 'Pause and Complete After Prayer'. I really like it as it gives a positive message out.

GITEX Dubai and Back


A trip came up and I had to travel to Dubai. I stayed there for 12 hours and traveled on the Metro, argued with a taxi guy, visited GITEX exhibition, went to the launch of Windows 7, visited Mall of Emirates, Dinner and back and that was fun but now my bones are aching.

Three things I loved about this trip was their Metro which is very nice and reminds me of the London underground in some way, GITEX Technology exhibition and Windows 7 launch. I will leave you with the pictures for now...

How I saved KD 100

I have always been asked by so many friends to advice them how can they save money once they receive their salary. I keep advising them and they keep failing simply because they cant get out of shopping or spending money on anything and everything or a simple answer I always receive and hear is I am Single and no responsibilities why shall I save?

Well first of all one needs to keep in mind whats the purpose behind his/her need of saving? You need to have an aim behind that saving and then work on it. Most of the times what happens is people save for a month or two and then give up and start spending again.

I was from the beginning advised by my Dad to save some money for any unexpected bad time. Even though el7emdella I knew that my parents are always there for me but my Dad's advices were really good and made me work on it. Below is a small example for how one could start saving...

You always start saving with an amount that you personally would consider as peanuts but don't be sad about that. Suppose you have decided that you want to save KD100. You open an account and deposit KD1 in it. You feel that this amount is very less and its not worth it and you are not happy about it but trust me as this will increase with the coming months you will be happy and want to save more.

So the first month you saved KD 10
Next month you added KD 10 to that saving.
then KD 20 the month after.

This month you will feel happy as you have a total of KD40 in you account now. If you keep it up like this the more months pass the more you save till you reach your target. Just a few months before you reach the target you had in mind you will have a feeling that you want to increase the target amount and you will feel proud of the money you have saved till that date.

And remember from a personal experience I feel the more you save the more your expectations increases. Before you started saving you could maybe just think of buying a Toyota Yaris but few years on the line you will think I want a Land Cruiser and then who knows maybe a Bugatti :p Its funny but this is how it goes with me :D

Good Luck to everyone :) and thanks to eshda3wa on inspiring me to write this post...

Where is the end?


I am riding fast on this roller coaster - falling .. then riding again - hurting other passengers and being hurt.. still not giving up - Because I am hopeful that this ride will run smoothly someday.... and waiting!
