  • Boy oh boy, you're gonna get flamed for this post :p

    - I don't wish we were like the US. We're much better.

    - What's wrong with being an engineer? jelous? :p

    - A guy I know uses the word 'americanized' to refer that he & his *current* GF have sex (they were in an american school).

  • dont stop with those lists i luv them

    By Blogger A3sab, at 28.9.05  

  • we're not like dubai because we dont allow alcohol Beverages , night clubs , prostitutes and all that !

    in dubai u dont feel that u're in an arab country ! , its so westernized !

    my emarati friend once told me "e7na a'3rab w elajaneb asyad bderatna" they dont rule in their city ! its the "others" who rule and thats shown

    now guys if u do allow the stuff i've mentioned above i guess kuwait would look even better than dubai ! but would it be the perfect place to rase ur children ?

    well i would encourage the business investements ! , but tourism i dont think so !


    b3deen e7na let us settle down first , kilshway wa7ed nagezlenah
    first sadam now rabe3 '3loom !!
    3salla ye7afethna !

  • Temetwir - it wasnt hard, i'm not kuwaiti but i can read it perfectly and understand fil nihayaa kilna bald wa7ad. but seriously loved ur lists! could work for us down south too. especially "why cant we be more like Dubai?" cliche

    but its like mother courage said, dubai lacks any identity, and trafffic that can make u want to commit a crime! it takes 2 hours to go a less then 10 km distance! things happen there too fast.

    By Blogger Kay, at 28.9.05  

  • Temy, Nooooo not EVERYTHING'S purple... 3ad I'm not geeziyah!

    The walls, the paintings..etc Ya3ni purrple accents. The major stuff's wood or steel...

    By Blogger samboose, at 28.9.05  

  • Funny bs walla 7aram u made me feel uncomfortable about myself :P I have a mass communications degree o maby afta7 my own ad company, I like pink, I wear chanel sunglasses, and I REALLY do like the coffee at starbucks and NOT the guys (ma arta7 aslan lemma there are a lot of ppl there, the whole place goes quiet all of a sudden when someone walks in or out of the place)...but of course, I'm an exception! I think i understand why noor aka om siraj didn't enjoy the post :P

    By Blogger Ms. Milk, at 29.9.05  

  • a3sab taamreen

    mother courage well said, but the others dont "rule" .. dubai is where it is now because it has no parliament

    wicked yeah am sure some of those cliches work all around the gulf! never been to 3omaan, but i hear that the scenery there alone could turn it into a tourists' heaven

    samboose heh thats what i said! anyway its still unique i guess

    ms milk what ur saying is exactly what the list is about, cliches heh .. nah just playin :)

    By Blogger Temetwir, at 29.9.05  

  • temetwir... you typing up such a list makes you the biggest cliche of all. No offense.
