If I Die Young

Wayans Brothers .. Live At Madstand

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.

Wayans Brothers:

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.

Mad Stand

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!

SelfieKW – Cyber Bullying?

r4r4r

I heard about this Instagram account a while back and passed through it then. I really did not see the point of it and wasn’t interested at all. I mean who cares how you take your “selfies” and what horoscope you are. However it’s their life at the end.

However, we received an email this morning about how this was all made up and it is created to make fun of people. So I went and checked back again on the account. Personally I don’t think the owner of SelfieKW did this on purpose as his profile is full of selfies of himself. I guess he just wanted to make something out of selfies. Plus the people who submitted their selfies did it with their own will. No one forced them and no pics were taken from accounts without permission. They submitted it, they should take what is coming to them.

However, I have to point out that cyber bullying here. As bullying is not considered an issue in Kuwait and it’s only called “child’s play”. We need to understand that we live in a society where people tend to talk. However our talk can be considered very harsh at points that could lead to ruining some lives due to traditions and the culture its self.

A I noticed most of the people on SelfieKw are kids. Yes I consider them kids. When those kids are exposed to harsh comments that could lead to things we really don’t want to see. We have heard many news of teenage suicide due to cyber bullying. It’s not really a joke.

We really have the ability to create some really stupid trends. Whether these trends are accepted or not, people tend to do things because they think its the “in” thing without taking in consideration the circumstances. This is just a friendly advice, sending your name, date of birth, accounts, etc can lead to things you really don’t want. You have your own Instagram account that you control, why have it in public where people might attack you for nothing?

Living A Movie

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.

On My Mind Lately

stop-child-abuse4

 

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.
