Quote of the Week

Love Me Tender at Thouq, SoMu





And more intrepid, playful artwork by Ahmed Alghanim can be found for sale at Thouq.com. Thouq is a tongue-in-cheek gallery/shop next to Caffeine in SoMu [map] and well worth a visit when enjoying South Mubarikiya during the cooler months. All work is designed and made in Kuwait. Love, love, love it! 

I do believe that Ahmed is the also owner of my favourite coffee shop in SoMu, Bayt Ahmed. which is a MUST visit.

Did you guess who they all are? Elvis, Shei-kh Guevara, Audrey & Marilyn, Bob Marley and Edina & Patsy.

Wife Exposes Husband's Fake Kuwaiti Citizenship After 22 Years




A Syrian national who had fraudulently acquired Kuwaiti citizenship 22 years ago has been arrested by the authorities in Kuwait.

He was arrested after his wife, in a fit of anger, reported about him to the authorities. She revealed that her husband was originally a Syrian and had forged documents to obtain Kuwaiti citizenship, and also took up a job in the public sector as Kuwaiti.

His nationality was ascertained after a DNA test and investigations revealed that he had entered the Gulf state with a Syrian passport, reported Kuwaiti daily Al Qabas.

The wife in her conversation with the police authorities made a revelation that her husband had lied about his nationality before getting married. She didn't divulge it to anybody after her marriage but could not longer restrain herself after he began criticising Kuwaitis.

After his Syrian identity is exposed, he and his children stand to lose their Kuwaiti status as per the Kuwaiti law.
