Last Friday we attended the Wayans Brothers comedy show by Mad Stand. The event was great and thought I’d cover some of my thoughts about the events.
Venue: Mishref International Fairground
I think that was a bad idea, as the place is large the sounds included a loud echo and it was a bit hard to listen to the show. Let alone the parking spaces is a nightmare due to another expo next door. It is hard to find a good venue to host such big events in Kuwait. A venue where is specialised for theatre acts with high quality equipments. Who knows more events like this and it might trigger some new venues to open up.
What do we have to say here. It’s the Wayans Brothers. However I got to say that Marlon is the one who made the funniest jokes. He really did some great acting that just got you laughing out loud. Although it was like “mini” censored the jokes were open. I can’t share any of the videos because technically it was not allowed. I say technically because this is a show and they did not want to ruin the show for others around the world. I respect that really.
This is the second event I attend for Mad Stand. The one before that was the Comedy Hangout 2 which featured Fahad Al-Butairi and the guys from Sheno Ya3ny TV. I really did enjoy the local talent in the Comedy Hangout 2. I got to say that they made a huge jump getting Wayans Brothers to come to Kuwait. Its not easy to get such great acts to Kuwait and we have to wait for an event in Dubai to see some entertainment.
A job well done. They did set up the standard now and I hope they will get more stand up comedians in the future. I have a list!
I know its been a while since we wrote here, we are just waiting for some renovations to be done with the website and of course our life work that takes most of our time.
Also, the blogging has changed and it doesn’t get that interesting anymore. It’s like reading the same content on different themes.
However, that is not what my post is all about. My post is about living a movie. Here the movie is a lie, where everything is setup to look good yet at the end its not but a good illusion. Sadly that’s what we see in our daily life. A big movie from people who we think we know.
It’s funny how things change and that change is fed with denial. People try to compliment people, companies, social figures, celebrities, employers and even family just because you want to reach the top. Or maybe just don’t want to be “the only one” who says the truth.
People who kiss *** to live are the ones who I say are degrading. It’s like getting paid for something unethical yet you do it anyway just to go on top. A lovely word that “ethical”. Something we barely (if never) care about. As long as I reach the top, I don’t care if you are better than me and worked harder than me to reach the top.
Looking at all the Instagram celebrities, I keep thinking.. Why are they celebrities? I follow some of them and I really admire. Yet the ones that I don’t follow have me confused. See I believe not every celebrity is talented. Some are just the ones that got famous because people made them famous for nothing. Like those cheap reality TV celebs if you know what I mean.
Hey, we all have the right to follow and unfollow people, its all good. Hey thats freedom isn’t it? Yet when I sit here and watch untalented people get famous and people just believe everything they say just because they have a few hundred thousand followers? If only talent is measured by followers!!
Just say “I Don’t Care” with one squeaky voice and suddenly you are a model, say one funny joke out of a million ones and you will be the “best” stand up comedian in town, or buy some Khazan burger and make your own “burger recipe” and you will have the best restaurant in in the middle east (waaaaaay).
It’s always been my thing to rant. It’s kind of my “thing”, yes yes I know its not a talent. It’s more of a Kuwaiti thing don’t you think? However, there is talent out there (most of who I follow), yet those people get overshadowed by overrated Instagram celebs.
This movie keeps me entertained for a while really…it just gets boring when you see it over and over again.
A couple of months ago we had a photo shoot session with Ahlam Raffi, who specialises in family photography. We met at Anjefa beach to take some shots there. Mesho has a thing for beaches.
She captured some really great moments for us while we just enjoyed the beach. She knows her ways with kids and brings great captures that included the whole family. If you want to have your pics taken with your family. Just contact Ahlam:
The packaging is really great, with a few printed shots and a CD that had all the finished pictures. Make sure to give her a try for any of your family photos.

It has become the norm in our society to have house keepers and nannies living at our homes. Its almost impossible to see a house with no maid in Kuwait. A lot of those house keepers or nannies , not all of them of course, are uneducated and come from a very rough life conditions. Some of them were abused and mistreated in their country and might have lots of psychological issues. We don’t know anything about them or their back ground. And there we are having them in our houses living among us and trust them with the most precious things we have “our children”.
Over the past few years we have heard the most horrifying stories about nannies abusing children sexually and some stories ended with the house maids murdering innocent babies. I have seen maids with an infant at the general hospital dropped by drivers to get a treatment for that ill baby! we have seen drivers abuse children in malls accompanied with nannies, no parents! babies are left every day all alone with these unqualified maids for long hours with no supervision.
Please note that the nannies job is to help us. Not to raise our children this is our job. Don’t ever trust them 100% with your babies. Do not leave them with nannies all alone in houses unsupervised, ever. It would be a lot better to leave them at daycare if you have to work, at least they will be safer there with a lot of peoples to watch over them. if you had to leave them at home and had no choice but to do so ,you can always put nanny cams and feel free to tell the nanny that they are being watched.
Our children are the most precious things to our hearts, they are our responsibility, and if they got harmed by some one we will always be the one to blame.
The idea of this post came to me after an incident have happened to a relative of mine. She found out that her house keeper ,whom she considered to be her trusted one, stole thousands of KD’s from her safe over the year she had worked in their house.
Once again, What I’m saying does not apply to all house keepers and nannies. But here in Kuwait there are no standers or requirements of any education level for the maids that are brought into the country.Therefore you should be really careful and know who are you letting into your house and life.
All I wanted to say is please do not give complete trust to strangers when it comes to your children, homes and families.Please ,be safe.
