We always post songs that we like from around the globe but one thing we truly appreciate is local talent and Aziz AlNasrallah and Mohammad Al-Saeed have loads of it. The following is the video for the track “Amoot Alaik” sung by Aziz AlNasrallah, which roughly translates to a mix between I adore you and I’d die for you in Arabic (its a bit hard to explain), but even if you don’t understand the words ...

This is the latest animation to be used for Kuwait TV as a brand redesign, and I am officially in love! The animations are centered around the Kuwaiti culture as well as the wildlife featuring camels and horses made of calligraphy as if they were stories brought to life. The quality of this creation is absolutely superb and the whole concept is really creative and deserves praise. Even the logo has been rebranded with ...

We haven’t posted any rewinds for a while now, and we are back to refresh your memory and remind you of the awesome past. One of the most compelling movies back in the days was The NeverEnding Story which came out in 1984. At the time it was one of the most expensive movies to produce outside the US, it turns out it is originally German with American funding. As a child this movie was a ...

This house, or should I say mansion is currently being built somewhere in Kuwait. It is a five story house (which is very large) and is being constructed for a single family. I’m not quite sure how how many are they but this house sure does look nice. The images you are about to see are concepts but they are being created right now. The house from the outside looks nice, I especially like the windows, ...

Kuwait might not be the best destination for skyscraper sight seeing but it sure has its fair share of beautifully designed houses. One particular house is this that uses clever white and gray geometric shapes creating this sort of harmony that results in a great looking house. Designed by architect Issa Taha, this house is a unique demonstration of beautiful use of simple shapes and colors that creates outstanding results. I’m mostly interested in the visual ...

To start of, this video is a very well crafted production created for the Muslim call for prayers. TV channels usually have different approaches but are all indeed very challenging to create mainly because it is a video that will be aired 5 times per day, every day and it is important to keep the video watchable over and over, of course for those interested. One particular and creative video is Kuwait TV’s latest athan prayer ...

There are many amazing Kuwaiti business and this is definitely one of them. The business is an online store called The Yard, and I am in love with their products.

I’ve wanted to post about this site for a while now. Its a local Kuwaiti online store called The Little Joy Shop. We’ve previously posted about some items we liked from Photojojo, and getting them to Kuwait takes time but we were overjoyed when we found out that a lot of our favorite products are being sold locally through this site. But the site has a lot more to offer than just photography related items, if your ...

These newly released ads by Wataniya Telecom are hilarious. I loved how they had a certain theme for all these ads and they were original in the concept and the way they put their message across. The ads are about “the adventures of Bou Aloraif” and I loved them. You have to watch a few of them before you can understand the whole concept, and they managed to put their point across clearly yet in ...

I’m pretty sure we all have seen this cafe in Kuwait at 360 mall due to its distinctive location and pretty design. What I did not know is that this design was created by the very talented Jassim Al-Shehab, whereas I initially thought with such a franchise the design kind of came with it. Anyway, I’ve been very fond of the design of this place even though it is surrounded by two other cafes since ...

A few days back I posted about a very great project by Perkins+Will designed for the new Kuwait University College of Arts. Part of this ongoing project is the creation of a better college for the College of Education, and I must say this looks outstanding. If you have seen the current college of education then you’d know how this building is lightyears ahead. This whole building is amazing from every angle especially the little fins ...

Back when I was at college, a few years back I kept hearing about the long awaited unified Kuwait University that houses all colleges into a single location. If you are located in Kuwait then you’re already familiar on how Kuwait is such a little country and colleges of Kuwait university are scattered all over. I don’t know why would anyone want a university and all of its colleges to be in one place knowing ...
