AUSKuwaitOne of our readers emailed us a long story about American United School. The story is she registered her kids for the next new academic year at AUS. However, their admission policy require the kids to do assessments. All kids done their assessments and after days she received a call from the school that all of her kids are not require to enter.

The assessment cost 100KD and she asked to know the assessment scores and feedback. But the admission did not provide any information except they cannot enter the school and this our final decision. The next day she went to the school, they haven’t gave her any information. Except they said if you have a Wasta we can pass your kids to our school.

Focus Movie By Will Smith

Will Smith latest movie Focus is now showing on Grand Cinemas Screens. Days ago, I went to watch the movie and thought it’s interesting.

In brief, the movie is about Nicky (Will Smith), a veteran con artist, takes a novice named Jess (Margot Robbie) under his wing. While Nicky teaches Jess the tricks of the trade, the pair become romantically involved; but, when Jess gets uncomfortably close, Nicky ends their relationship. Three years later, Nicky is in Buenos Aires working a very dangerous scheme when Jess, now an accomplished femme fatale unexpectedly shows up. 

The movie stars are Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Rodrigo Santoro. I liked the action and drama scenes, but disliked the movie story. I don’t think their is any meaning of the title name.

From what I knew from a friend that works in Kuwait Airways is their was a bus transferring passengers from Oman to the another zone. Accidentally the bus collide the plane. The aircraft nose cone is only slidely damaged. This part will take days to be replaced either from Dubai or Airbus Factory.

Traffic Junction Law

JunctionKuwaitFrom last month I saw yellow lines painted in the traffic lights junction area. The traffic International law say whenever the traffic light goes green and their is a traffic ahead you should stay at your zone until the traffic moves on. I’m sure if this traffic law is accepted here.

However, I passed several traffic lights in the Gulf Road and saw new blue signs placed with a message of “Do not enter the junction until exit is cleared”. Just a question, would the drivers here accept and follow this International law?.

Officially today Kuwait Government opened AlShaheed Park. The new park turned out to a museum, theatre, memorial, entertainment activities and cafes. The doors will be open for the public to explore the park within weeks later. From what I heard their would be an entrance ticket fees per person. I have to visit it when it’s fully opened.
