I was invited by my friend Marzouq to attend GulfRun 6 Meetup in Shuwaikh. Being the gentleman he is, he sensed my hesitation since such events would be flooded with stags and no hens, he asked me to come and check the preparations before the event 😉 I gladly accepted and went there with my camera

I must admit that the efforts put into making this event were remarkable! Turning a storage area into Continue reading

Movember

A week back I saw my friend with his new look – a mustache! It was never a look for him, and to be quite honest, I laughed a bit too… but he told me he was growing his mustache to raise awareness about Movember, in aid for prostate cancer

The Mo -slang for moustache- & November month come together each year for Movember awareness! Growing a mustache challenge men to change their appearance – Its a bit late now, but I just came to learn about it.. November first, you start with a clean shave, and then you’re supposed to grow a mustache for the entire month!

So guys (my male readers) – who’s going for it this month?

WTG Q! And for all those who are doing the same to change the face of men’s health 🙂

Human Rights Watch – Walls at Every Turn

I was invited to attend the Human Rights Watch press conference a couple of days back to talk about their newly published report on human right abuses faced by migrant domestic workers in Kuwait, highlighting the sponsorship system in Kuwait. The representative of Human Rights Watch; Sarah Leah, Nisha Varia, and Priyanka Motaparthy talked about the topic giving brief description of the region with some stats on their organization, the problem itself, findings, problems, and suggestions. They also opened the floor for Q&A at the end.

So lets focus on Kuwait now…. All in all, Kuwait is a country with Continue reading
