Kuwait’s “lets forget 2009″ List6 Jan 2010 17 Comments
On a more candid note after my post about 2009, somethings that might have been around before 2009, but may have gotten slightly out of hand.
Number 1 : RIM’s breakthru into the Kuwaiti market with their Blackberry’s. Its hard to have a conversation with an owner of these devices without being interrupted by furiously rapid texting or beeps emerging from the phone. Do they realize they can have the same data plan with any smartphone and use any social networking/chatting program to the same effect?

Number 2 : Swarovski covered cars, especially for the guys. I may understand a girl (maybe not even a grown lady) doing this, but when a guy goes and takes his SUV and bling bling’s it all out with the glittery type crystals, thats just uncalled for. Of course at the same time, in a similair parallel universe to where they live in, they continue the “lets-chrome-the sh*t-out-of-my-car” attitude as well. Some people need to be told that we dont live in a rap video.
Number 3 : This one is more complex, and needs dividing into different parts. Its a mix between the spikey, blow dried hair, and the i-wanna-be-david-beckham look. This follows of course the max-the-crap-out-my-scalp-with-gel fad a few years back. Male hairstyles have gotten out of head, use any mall restroom and you will find all the pushing and shoving around the mirror areas with people puffing up their hair and putting subtle touches. There is nothing subtle about your hairstyles.
Of course the bulk of it has come from a single culprit. Able to twist the minds of our youth into the biggest and loudest as well as the weirdest hairstyles…. the discovery of the hair dryer!
Number 4 : Our beautiful ladies were determined not be outdone by this bold move from the masculine side, so they introduced the alien hijab. I have heard they place yoghurt cups inside to hold the position, my conscience doest want to believe that. They would have made Dan Aykroyd and Co. in Coneheads proud. Behold the masterpieces to come.
Number 5 : Facebook. When your boss at work is a 50 year old man with no tech/social networking background and adds you as a friend to Facebook, then something is acutely wrong. I dont see you or talk to you outside of work, why would i want to be your buddy on facebook? The social networking scene in Kuwait has boomed in 2009 along with the hair styles.This post is in no way meant to offend any of our readers or anyone, else….. alien or human that is.
