“Limited” – “The First” – “The Only”

Whats up with those catch phrases! Why do people take them so seriously! I keep reading things like..

“The First Giant Cupcake in Kuwait” well sorry you guys, Sugar & Spice were doing that since forever!

“The only place in Kuwait that sells……” How come you are SO SURE? I have seen this item before in store “X”!!

“Limited Edition” makes people hurry to get their hands on those limited editions items! I mean I never got something just because its limited edition.. as a matter of fact, I have bought the Fendi Moncler Spy Bag few years back because I loved the feel and look of it

Fendi Moncler Spy

and then one of my friends tells me that its a limited edition and not available in Kuwait! SO WHAT! I bought it cuz of the color and the feel of it! I loved it… it was love at first sight hahaha

Now here is the reason why I’m writing this post! I was invited to join a group on facebook for an upcoming event for a flea market! I joined in and read in the poster something like

“The First Flea Market in Kuwait” I mean COME ON!!! Why write the first in Kuwait??? Whatever happened to Friday Flea Market? And then I mention our FIVE60 Flea Market last year!

FIVE60 Flea Market

Even someCONTRAST,Β Mark, rwatan, and Kuwait Paper Dump posted about it last year! I also posted about it so many times on my blog!

I just mention that to them on the group but then I go on to their group album and write them good luck wishes and commenting positively on the posters… just to show them that I support them and mean well.

And guess what happens next? My comments/link regarding FIVE60’s flea market get deleted!! They send me a private message saying “At least support us”…. Well… I did! I wished them all the best and said I loved their poster! Why do people only see the negative? The bad? Assume the worse! WHY!!

Oh well…

Home Remedies!

Natural Home Remedies sit gives you treatments using household items and techniques! Most recipes on that site have been tested by people who provided them. In most cases they are safe to use πŸ™‚ Check it out! I am in love with it.

An example of something I tried as a home remedy for flu/coughing was onions! Β And I have found the recipe for that home remedy on YouTube!

(link)

On the site I gave, if you click on cough, you will be given a list of suggestions to try out! On of those suggest using onion as a cure for cough!!! The site suggest that you chop onions finely and extracting their juices, then you mix one teaspoon of onion juice with one teaspoon of honey and let it sit for five hours. It will then form some sort of a cough syrup!

Thanks Anand πŸ˜‰

What do you think? Does Kate’s sense of fashion make no sense when it comes to this? Would you let your little girl wear heels?

AL

A couple of years back I posted about signs and how the AL doesnt really need to be added in every single name of the areas around K town! Here is an old pictures I have taken at the time with Sharg area spelled as Al Sharq!!

SharqSign1

Few days back I saw another sign spelling Burgan with AL!

Burgan Street

Burgan was never spelled or pronounced with AL in Arabic! Its always been Burgan! Not AlBurgan oil field, not AlBurgan Bank… Just BURGAN πŸ˜‰

No-No!

To this kind of art and use of bad language in public!!

No-No
