InstagramSpamSince Instagram announced their will clean up all spam/fake accounts. This message was placed before a while. I did not believe that Instagram can not control the spam accounts, but today I discovered many celebrities in Kuwait and worldwide lost hundreds and thousands of followers in minutes.

instagramfollowerskuwaitKuwaitiful posted List of Celebrities That Lost Thousands of Followers on Instagram. This time Instagram done a great work on managing the followers.What’s funny, accounts had lost over 10,000 followers in onetime. Actually, we compare number of followers and clearly estimate who bought followers.

VerifiedInstagramMoreover, Instagram will move soon on verifying all accounts. This step will be announced soon by Instagram community to make sure their is no any spams/fake accounts in future. Instagram done a great job and I think it is a great strategy applied by end of the year.

Gulf Cup 2014 started a week ago. Qualitynet Company created this TVC to motivate the Gulf Cup. Our national team (Kuwait National Team) played three matches. The last match was with Oman. The match ended with (5 Oman and 0 Kuwait). I’m sorry to see this poor effort from our team which kept us to lose the Gulf Cup 2014.

I don’t think their is any issues with our players. From analysing the match and listen to the players feedback. The main issue were with the couch and management. Hard Luck Kuwait!

Things To Do In Washington DC

November 15th, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Others | Personal | Reviews | Travel | World Life - (0 Comments)

TheWhiteHouseWashington DC is United States of America Capital State. DC formally known as the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, “the District”. I stayed a month in Washington DC and Virginia the state next to DC. I almost visited every part of DC. There are no much to do except museums, cafes and restaurants. The weather is almost wonderful. I liked the people, weather, atmosphere and culture.

madame tussaudsMadame tussauds – Washington DC brand, is the first museum I visited. Madame Tussaud’s is a wax museum founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud and was formerly known as “Madame Tussaud’s”; the apostrophe is no longer used. I actually, disliked the museum it doesn’t worth to pay $45 for a small museum, were every character is closed and have to pay money to take some photos.

GeorgeTownGeorge Town Market is the only popular market in Washington DC you can find luxury brands and stores in this street.

WashingtonDCChinaTownChina Town is a rush place in Washington DC. You can find china stores, restaurants, cinema and more.

I stayed one month in DC and suffered from finding Halal Restaurants/food. Virginia got many halal food stores, but I need a long journey to reach there. However, it was a lovely trip to Washington DC and I already missed DC.

GoogleXPillGoogle announced their new innovation project Google X Nano Pill. This pill identifies if this person got cancer or any other diseases. Still this is under experimental stage. The pill is packed with tiny magnetic particles, which travel through a patient’s bloodstream, search for malignant cells and report their findings to a sensor on a wearable device. What I think is Google is moving to a great path.

NewYorkJust few weeks left till I return back home. I’m still in WashingtonDC, so I thought to enjoy my weekend in New York City. This is my first visit to NYC Times Square. I booked a three hours train from DC To NYC via Amtrak Rail Transportation. Actually, the train cost cheaper and faster ($280) per person.

New York is a wonderful city, but it is so busy compared to WashingtonDC. I disliked the environment in times square, but liked the activities and entertainments. Still I haven’t been to many places, but I have to get back again to NYC in future.

ICFJI shared about My Location: Washington DC last week. I’m still in Washington DC for one month participating in Profellows exchange program and internship, organised by United States Department of State and managed by International Center For Journalist (ICFJ). This program is about “Unlocking the Economic Potential of Digital Media” were we are hired in different digital media firms all around the states, to observe the way of how this firm operate. We are 15 candidate in this program and I’m only the person from Kuwait.

Dan and Sameen the program officers are the people which I’m in contact with. I really loved the way they cooperate with us and help us to any issue we face in this program. I’m directed to work with GVHLIVE Digital Media Company for a month to observe their way they operate in United States.

Finally, I’m really happy to work the program group and I believe I will generate more knowledge from this program.

sixsenseszighybaySix Senses Zighy Bay got really popular this year. Last month, I had a chance to stay in Six Senses Zighy Bay resort for short period. I done my reservations through Six Senses reservation department. To reach Zighy Bay, I booked a transportation service from Six Senses, that took me from Dubai Int. Airport. It is a long 2hrs drive from Dubai to Oman border reaching Six Senses Zighy Bay. But that really worth it.

I was welcomed from the reception, checked-in and walked down to my lovely villa. Six Senses Zighy Bay offers different types of villas, but what I booked is a private swimming pool villa with sea view.

The place is really fabulous. As well as their services, I loved the way they help us with our wants. On the second day, I waked up with flu and called them for assistant. They cooperated with me till I felt well.

At the end, I loved this place and I wish I could stay more than three days. I am planning to be there in mid of March next year.
