The Diwaniya of Kuwait

Ramadan Kareem Everyone. Kuwait during Ramadan gets quite active in terms of nights out with family and friends visiting diwaniyas and other family gatherings that makes us have no time for politics or any international matters.

So the issue about Kuwait normalizing ties with Israel has not come up in any of the diwaniyas. Even when members of parliament visit it is never mentioned, not to be polite but seems the people don't care much about the issue.

One hot topic that always comes around ever Ramadan is the shows. Such as Stallion asking what is hot, and not? Yet it seems there is a consensus that the shows are pretty much crap but the commercials are great. Q, Zaydoun and Bo Jaij are demanding a boycott of the MBC1 show Gergeegan. Which even got MadM2000 to blog again.

Ayya also shares with us her true feelings about Ramadan and how it is one of the most hypocritical months of the Islamic calendar.

We also had our 10th Kuwait Blogs meeting.
