Define "Obsession"

Two words... Angry Birds. If you have an iPhone, iPod, or even Nokia N900 you probably have heard about this addictive game. If you haven't then you have no idea what you're missing.

Angry Birds is a funny challenging logic game involving lots of destruction. With cartoon-like graphics, unique gameplay, perfectly composed soundtracks and hilarious sound effects this outstanding game is definitely the best of the best on the iPhone.

Don't get me wrong I am not promoting the game I'm just admitting how good it is. I also want to brag about it too. Yes you read right, BRAG! I've succeeded in becoming number one on Kuwait leader board managing three stars in all levels and completing the game %100.

"I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast. But I'm like hot butter on your breakfast toast." -Someone.

Now that I have documented my success and got that competitive obsession out of me feel free to knock my off the leader board because I quit. :)

Kuwait Postal Service & Airport Cargo

This shows how convenient-1 Kuwait postal service and airport cargo are...

Lately I started ordering directly to Kuwait without having Aramex ripping my pockets off. It takes less time to get my packages delivered and in most times it costs even less but that's limited to my options on the seller's site. Though on this unique occasion I had ordered two packages separately, one was posted on 19/2/2010 and the other was on 1/3/2010. Both packages were carried by UK Royal Mail and been forwarded overseas to Kuwait Postal Service for delivery.

The funny part is, the second package that was shipped almost two weeks later than the first one had been delivered on March 5 2010 while the first package whereabouts is still unknown. I went to KPS at Keifan, gave them the reference number and after 20 minutes the guy came back telling me they haven't received it yet, "It might still be at airport cargo or your local postal service office" he said.

All in good will I went to airport cargo asking around about my package only to find out that they have no way of knowing whether it has been collected by KPS or not. I realized I've wasted two and a half hours of my life and half a tank of gas through traffic jam on absolutely nothing.

If anyone knows how to track shipments forwarded to Kuwait postal service please enlighten me on how to understand this mess.

Blog Stats

Blog stats declined severely in the past few months.

Tuesday, March 09, 2010


I had no intentions in deserting my blog yet I did, and I had no intentions to get back to blogging yet here I am.

For the past few months I kept thinking "Now that I got married, what else have I accomplished in my life so far?" Honestly, I couldn't recall a single thing, beside getting married of course. I saw myself as a miserable teacher who lost his voice over the so-called generations to come, labor for MOE examination committee, and a contractor back at home waiting for this construction work to finish. That's until yesterday when I opened my blog and started reading years back.

I kept reading and reading for hours. I grinned, I mourned, I saw the lost side of me. I saw myself as this happy youth who's full of passion for living. Computer addict and self-proclaimed tech-savvy. Automotive maniac, enthusiastic photographer, and last but not least a loving son, brother, husband, uncle and hopefully one day a father.

This blog has become part of me, part of who I am. It barely skims my entire life yet it underlines a lot about me and how I managed to go through all those years with their ups and downs.

With that said I am happy to be back to blogging and I will do my best to keep it thrived with many good years to come.
