Wash Away ;-)

With all the dust we’re getting, and no matter how much you try and “seal” your car… dust will find its way in!! Now I usually take my car to Mansouriya gas station, they are awesome…. only problem is that its always crowded and I have to wait a while for my turn… So why not do it from the comfort of my home? Pamper my car a bit 😉

Fadi, a friend of mine, invited me to a group on facebook called Washaway, a home service for car cleaning and washing. Interesting group and brilliant idea!


I have finally decided to call them and schedule an appointment to clean my car. The first time they were late and I canceled! I was upset and told my friend Fadi about it… who in return called the owner!

Later, the owner himself called and apologized and scheduled and appointment for me… That was really nice of him to do so!!! I was looking forward to try their service and have my car cleaned… mainly from the inside… its been almost 3 weeks since I have last done the inside cleaning… so check my car’s inside before they started… Continue reading

Well Done Kuwait Scuba Team!

I love it when I read such news in Kuwait!

Kuwait Scientific Club (KSC) released Sunday at Umm Al-Maradim Island a giant turtle that was rescued at Sabiyyah power station by the Kuwaiti scuba diving team on July 5.

The 55-year-old turtle is 85 centimeter long, and was the seventh turtle rescued by KSC, said head of KSC’s scuba team and the marine ecosystem department Talal Al-Sarhan.

It was hard for the team to rescue the turtle which was trapped in one of the power tanks and for turbines to be shut, an official order must be issued, so scuba team used special techniques to deal with the operating turbines to save it, he said.

The turtle, which had wounds on its back and head, was treated by Dr. Salem Al-Hindi, who put it under a special treatment and diet two weeks ago after taking the blood samples needed, he added.

As for the location of which the turtle was released at, Al-Sarhan said that Umm Al-Maradim Island was the most suitable for the turtle.
