The Kuwait Towers, the country's major landmark, marked their 29th birthday without much fanfare. But one blogger did not forget the occasion.
IntlXpatr notes it with one entry. He writes:
In today’s Kuwait Times is a notice that today, the Towers turn 29 years old
Meanwhile, Forzaq8 follows up on the case of an internet news publisher, who is getting a big boost in a case in court. He writes:
they haven’t published the final report , but it would mean that online publishing does not fall under the publishing law YET

Outlawq8 complains about films being screened in cinemas, the high costs of cinema tickets and food in this post. He writes:
the movies are mostly late and show old movies that some times been over a year since the movie is released in the US, and pick the silliest movies ever i don't know why! and they'll give you a movie discount,,, i know you're wondering how's that?! if the movie's runtime is 120 minute you can see it in 60 minute only in Kuwait :D now how about that? no other country can serve that kind of offers to the viewers :P
lately they've increased the price of the tickets from 2.5 KD to 3 KD, and in Monday's 1.5 KD i guess they knew there's going to be salary increasing BUT WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY SELL A CHOCOLATE FOR 500 FILS?! i mean com on : a pack of Maltesers for 500 fils? the prices are getting ridiculously high and someone gotta stop this
Babbler too is unhappy – and can't seem to find the olives she likes in the market. She explains:
I think that there is a serious olive crisis in Kuwait. I always thought that Kuwaiti super-markets have good reserves of nice olives. This notion remained there, albeit it was getting increasingly difficult to find the same quality olives everywhere. With the current increase in products prices, good olives seem to have disappeared completely.
A couple of days ago, I was completely disgusted when my significant-other pointed out that the olives he purchased, though were fine to eat, were preserved in cooking oil! I got so turned off that I binned them the next day.
And last but not least, Chillnite writes about a photo shoot contest in Kuwait.
