The Alchemy of Wisdom

I found this book at work, a gift for my boss, it was such a nice looking book I  had to open it and see what is was about.
It was actually published in 2012:
Inspirational, album-styled book showcases some of Kuwait’s greatest achievers and achievements
In a first for Kuwait and the Middle East, Lulua Publishing launched a one-of-a-kind book aimed at inspiring Kuwaitis, young and old alike, and invoking in them a sense of pride for their country.
Titled Alchemy of Wisdom, the book showcases a number of remarkable personalities that have risen from the Gulf state, and the many achievements they have inspired, directed and executed, in Kuwait and across the Middle East. Penned and compiled by Sheikha Intisar Al-Sabah, Lulua Publishing’s founder, and accompanied by stunning photography from world-renowned photographer Cristian Barnett, Alchemy of Wisdom highlights these Kuwaiti pioneers and features inspirational quotes and words of wisdom that have guided them on their distinctive journeys.
“Alchemy of Wisdom is a unique undertaking to raise awareness of the great people – some illustrious, others little known – who have distinguished themselves and the country,” explained Sheikha Intisar about the inspiration behind the coffee table-styled book. “Born from a tiny seed of an idea, as I began speaking to Kuwait’s notable pioneers, I found myself leaving a discussion with one prominent Kuwaiti inspiration, only to have two or three more added to my list.”
“All 46 of the singular personalities included in this edition have been profiled with a bio showcasing their many activities, their personal mantras, and striking photography that in itself says it all. Alchemy of Wisdom brings these individuals together to show what Kuwaitis can accomplish and to encourage pride, ambition and a positive attitude in our society.”

Nice table book.

Vehicles we should be driving on Kuwait Roads

Every morning when I go to work I wish I had one of these to drive.

Have you ever had the feeling of wanting to ram someone who has blocked your car or purposely parked their car taking up multiple lanes?

Pork in Abu Halaifa Restaurant

Pork found in Abu Hlaifa restaurant
KUWAIT: Ahmadi Municipality officers busted an unspecified amount of pork inside an Abu Hlaifa restaurant during a recent campaign. The meats were confiscated and referred to the investigation department. The restaurant’s owner was summoned for questioning.

From Another post:

Meanwhile, Ahmadi Municipality officials collaborated with their counterparts from the Ministry of Interior to confiscate and destroy a quarter kilogram of meat whose origin was unknown and some quantity of pork inside a restaurant in Abu Halifa. It has been reported the items were found in the basement being used as the central kitchen of the restaurant.
I wonder if it was one of the restaurants run by an American? Pork comes from Camp Arifjan, you can even buy a whole pig if you want. FYI people there is no alcohol being sold in the PX, the only illegal item would be pork, so if anyone attends an American bar-b-que be aware that pork may be cooked alongside your beef.

Flat for Rent

My sister found this ad which says something along the lines of:

Rent- 120 KD, 3 bedrooms, broken floors with cement. No electricity, kitchen ready with a pot and lid. First floor, no elevator, you leave from a rope. The bathroom is across the street in the masjid.

I bet you have to pay the haris his share as well as paying the agent.
