518 Here, There, & Everywhere

Got more of 518 pictures from my awesome readers 😉

Lets start, shall we?

H.G. snapped this picture at Marriott in Monaco – his friend’s room # – of course 😉 518!

At home… a couple of weeks back, when we were BBQ-ing at home, I got a bit carried away with burger buns art 😉

Narine, of Kuwait-Music, sent me a snap shot taken on February 27th 2011… Kuwait Music rank was 518 😉

Oh and another KFH wait-ticket from OmarR 😉

And last but not least, His & Hers‘ screen shot of Tiny Wings with the score 518 😉

Kuwait’s 1st Social Media Forum – Day III

The last day of the Social Media Forum -March 28th-was quite light and nice! It started of with -bloggers- guest speakers Mr. Khaled AlOtaibi of حاكي عقالي (@EnterQ8) and Ahmed AlHaidar. They talked about their blogging experience, different styles of writing, how to gain publicity, and talked about Frankom as one of the examples 😉 – I kept tweeting about the forum the whole three days! I was enjoying it so much – as mentioned before, you can follow it on twitter’s #KWSocial.

Then they opened the discussion floor for Q&A and shared some of their tips with the audience before they break for prayers.

After the break, Dr. Sajed AlAbdali (@DrSajed) who talked about twitter more! He talked about his opinion about the styles and patterns.. I did not agree with him on so many points, but it was interesting -nevertheless- to hear different opinions 😉

Overall, it was a good experience and I enjoyed the event. I met quite a few people, had quite a few coming to me and saying hello (was wondering if the special mention on the first got me exposed somewhat LOL)… the funny thing is I did not get to meet bloggers!

Again, thank you so much Mr. Mohammed AlMuhaini of Zain Telecom for the invite and for the pictures 🙂

Pregnancy Clothing!

I have seen many female family members/friends and how they dress up while pregnant! Some would gracefully show their baby bump, others will wear loose clothes to hide it. Some shop in the pregnancy clothing sections at the malls, others will refuse to go to those isles…

But Halima… I have nothing to say about her style/taste since I never liked it before she got pregnant, but this is just too much for my taste – I am disturbed! Honestly – Skinny jeans was not made for this type of bodies.. too much makeup on (not that this is unusual for her) – let alone her whole sense of fashion! Her taste is dropping SO FAST 😦

Beside all that… I wish she delivers a healthy baby and take good care of it him/her.


Frankom also posted about it (link)

Kuwait’s 1st Social Media Forum – Day II

Day II of Kuwait’s 1st Social Media Forum was as fruitful as day I (link).

The first speaker was Mr. Mohammed AlDallal, lawyer (@maldallal)

Very informative and useful presentation, talking about the laws and regulations of the Internet usage in Kuwait (Find the summary here).

The funny thing is that this conference lets everyone use their mobiles, laptops, iPads freely… including the guest speakers, even when they’re on stage! Its a social media forum after all – and I love it every time someone mentions a tweet received during their speeches (Yes, there is a competition going on between me and @dukeq8! That’s an insider joke by the way 😉

Then Ms. Hind AlNahed (@Hindrelations) and Mr. Khaled AlZanki (@KhalidAlzanki) both spoke about their experiences, work, and gave many examples of how to utilize and better use those tools into marketing…

You can follow up the event on twitter at #KWSocial

Again, thank you Mr. Mohammed AlMuhaini for the pictures 🙂

I look forward to tonight’s speakers 😀 – will update you tomorrow!
