Picking up the Slack!

15 Apr 2013  3 Comments

Yup. I’m here to keep you guys entertained while “N” starts to be doing more than a monthly post. Or who knows, might end up taking over this blog should he retire. WE WILL NEVER KNOW!

Anyways, I’m Trance, pleased to meet you all.  I’m the uplifted and multi- interest and hobbies type of guy who’s going to be posting a lot of stuff, I hope, as long I do find lots of “interesting” stuff. They may be in any category whether it was music, video games, random news..etc. So pretty much the mini-version of “N”, till I start taking over..I mean…getting used to the blogging thing back again. I usually write lengthy posts in general when I get carried away, but for now, I’ll resist the urge to do so and just keep it simple so you guys won’t hate me on the first day.

So that was pretty much an introductory post, hope to see more involvement and comments from you guys here. Catch you peeps in another post~

P.S: Will update social media Networking links once I get a proper time with “N” again should it be needed. And by needed I mean “N” has got to stop slacking and do it already. ;p

P.P.S: If you thought I was kidding about writing serious “non-very useful” long posts, here’s a sample during the good times:

Souq Al-Mubarkiya – سوق المباركية

11 Jan 2010  4 Comments

Yesterday i took my random yearly trip to Souq Al-Mubarkiya, one of the most historic places in Kuwait. I wasnt looking for anything, just a little walk around since the weather was nice and there wasnt much to do last night. It was nice to see some foreigners (europeans/americans) walking around and enjoying a taste of our history. I took some quick snaps of random things with my phone which you can find below…

I saw this canon-like Courvoisier Cognac bottle in a random store with lots of old and vintage stuff. I regretted not buying later actually because it does look pretty cool. I also found some really old wind up record players that still work which was also interesting. Click below to see the rest of the pictures. Continue Reading

Airport Screening Procedures Leaked Online

9 Dec 2009  2 Comments

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) stupidly posted online their 93 page brochure on airport screening criteria. It included lists of items that did not require screening, as well as stating that during peak times security is lessened.

The aforementioned passport-holders automatically targeted for secondary “selective” screening are, by the way, from Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Yemen or Algeria.

Two thumbs up, one to the TSA, and one to the Cuban with the massive moustache in the retro photo above.

Kick a Ginger Day!

7 Dec 2009  4 Comments

A redheaded sixth-grade girl victimized by a Facebook prank calling for students to participate in “Kick a Ginger Day” says she was scared that the incident could have gotten worse.

Sheriff’s investigators say the Facebook message may have been inspired by a “South Park” TV episode that satirized racial prejudice by portraying a campaign against red-haired, fair-skinned “ginger” people.

Its incredible what you will come up with if you search for “kick a ginger”. Even Prince Harry’s girlfriend and colleagues give him a hard time by calling him big ginger!

You gotta love being called a “conglomerate”

A very sad story.

A former U.S. Army Major stationed at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, his wife, sister and niece were sentenced for their participation in a bribery and money laundering scheme related to contracts awarded in support of the Iraq war

More Iraq war conspiracies out of Kuwait.

As you can see most articles these days relating to Kuwait are either to do with money, military, conspiracies, or all the 3 put together.
