Kuwait: Busy with Activities

It seems as if it's activity week in Kuwait. With cooler weather, Kuwait's bloggers are out of the doldrums and writing about their everyday activities.

We start with bb q8 over at Kuwait Advertiser, who shares with us his pictures of an event in the Light House Church in Kuwait.

Today at the Light House Church in Kuwait City, a Harvest Festival was held.
This fundraising event is held once a year as a Thanks-Giving Festival.

Marzouq over at zdistrict brings us the latest from Gulfrun, an annual event in which Kuwaitis drive their sports cars to Bahrain and race over there.

My hat goes off to the gulfrun organizers for making this happen, I was really surprised how many cars there really were, you can’t tell how many there are when its at night. I came directly from work to the parking lot on the Gulf Road but it turns out I am one of the few that came directly from work, everyone went home and changed, then came. Many cars met up on the way there and you could hear them coming. I met up with one of the support vehicles and a Monster of a Porsche, and we were searching for the parking lot.

Yo_ghurt over at stillkuwaiting informs us about a new environment friendly change in Kuwait.

Maybe I just found out, as I don’t shop at the big Co-ops much: I was in Mishref Co-op yesterday and I’m glad to see that they are offering a choice of paper or plastic bags now. The paper bags are made of recycled paper and are sponsored by various companies under the Environment Friends Campaign

Meanwhile, Hellraiser is going on a road trip on a bike from Kuwait to Beirut, Lebanon, and started a new blog and named it Kuwait to Beirut to document everything that happens to him on the trip. He has just reached Beirut but that's not the end of it. We are awaiting for his return trip.

Well I guess my plans on resting went out through the window, the gang decided to go to Beirut, I guess this is why I am able to blog again. We left marmarita at 13:00, and arrived to Beirut around 17:00.

EXzombie over at exzombiesm draws to our attention another event – Project Turtle 2007.

As always, same as every year since 2000, Project Turtle is now a 7 year old Kuwaiti/Japanese project that is carried out by the Japanese society in Kuwait……!!!
same as last year the Project will target Shuwaikh Beach Park, where all the Japanese people in Kuwait JOIN in to clean the beach in order to enhance Kuwaiti people’s awareness of environmental protection…..!!!

Last but not least,
Forzaq8
wonders why there wasn't any attempt to advertise that there is a book fair at the Kuwait Fair grounds.

As far as i know ,, and according to the Kuwait international fair company [ KiF ]
The book fair is from 13th till 23 of November
of course i haven't noticed any ad or even a small bit in the newspapers
