It was a crazy month all around – from crazy weather to nutty Internet connections and price hikes.
Insane is how Marzouq, over Zdistrict, describes the weather. He further explains:
What has been going on for the past couple of days has been nothing short of insane, it has gone from cold to warm back to cold. I look forward to the weekend just so I can go riding but that is shot because of the 25- 37 Km/h winds. It has made it difficult for people to be outside so most of everyone is staying in or going to the malls.
From the weather, we move to a crazy price hike in cinema tickets. 3baid writes about the price hike on cinema tickets from the the country's only operator.
From the official Cinescape website:
Effective 7th February, ticket prices will be KD 3.000 except on Mondays.
Way to go Cinescape! It’s now even less attractive to watch movies there.
Pearl too has another price hike to report on and writes about a Kuwaiti juice company increasing the price of juice.
raising their prices but for selling a pack of 40 mini juices (125ml) for the insane price of KD 3.400, while a pack of 24 regular juices (250ml) is sold for the price of KD 3.600. Silly silly silly!!!
Bureaucracy too is having its toll on blogger Yousef at somecontrast who is hating himself for:
Yesterday I went to Shuwaikh’s port near Kuwait University. I wanted to tell everything in details, but that proved to be impossible… so many little annoying details.. most of which were intangible.. you’d have to go there once and know what i’m talking about
yes Blame Egypt for it
In other non-crazy posts, Qais over at Io81 writes about how a local business works:
Many have heard or used 6alabat.com, its a simple website where you log in, browse for a restaurant and order. Then 6alabat.com takes the rest, i wont talk about the miss hap that 6alabat has like making incorrect orders etc etc…but i will explain how he makes a profit for other to understand
Meanwhile, Fonzation writes about a decision to close seven private schools in residential areas that has finally been implemented in Kuwait and thinks it may reduce traffic. He explains:
This will definitely minimize the extreme traffic we are witnessing on the 4th ring road everyday! Just like there are residential area, industrial areas, office areas, and so on, there should be areas designated for schools.
