Three years ago today, Instagram launched to the world. Since then, we’ve seen people all around the globe join Instagram to share their lives through photos and videos.
This year, the community experienced a number of important moments. We surpassed 150 million people who use Instagram every month, saw the first InstaMeet in Russia and introduced a new medium: video. We’re humbled and excited to watch the Instagram community continue to grow and thrive.
Yesterday, I created this design celebrating Instagram third year. The design concept is Instagram logo made of Kuwaiti traditional custom. Follow our account @q8path and find more.
Registrations are now open for RunQ8, the annual 10kilometer charity race to be held Saturday, November 2 at 9 am, starting and ending at Marina Crescent on the Gulf Road. RunQ8 2013 is organized by the Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute (FSRI) and Agility, supporting health initiatives and raising health awareness. We encourage socially responsible engagement in our community to improve preventative healthcare, standards for treatment as well as equal access to medical care. Previously, RunQ8 successfully supported Eye Health and Road and Traffic Safety community-wide projects in Kuwait.
In its third year, RunQ8 is supporting Children’s Rehabilitation through the new FSRI Children’s Rehabilitation Clinic. Caring for a child with a physical and/or cognitive disability has significant emotional, physical and financial effects on the child and the family. Despite parents’ best intentions, they often are unable to provide the care needed to improve their child’s quality of life, reduce his/her physical pain and provide for rehabilitation. The heartbreaking reality is that the children who are the most vulnerable require the most extensive, complex and prolonged rehabilitative care, which is financially impossible for many families. RunQ8 believes that no child should be left behind due to lack of financial support or quality medical care. With FSRI’s pediatric program, we strive to meet the needs of families without resources. This year we will be raising funds through RunQ8 to ensure that FSRI can continue to provide free comprehensive rehabilitative care to those children in the greatest need who have limited resources.

More cafes and restaurants will be opening soon at Arabella Complex. Arabella is the place hosts different restaurants/cafes with indoor and outdoor seats. Last Friday, I went to explore the complex and founded new restaurants/cafes opened such as Caribou Cafe, Olive Garden and Red Lobster.
The complex is constructed with basement, ground floor and first floor. As well there is parking area available in the basement. The location, architecture and atmosphere is amazing. Caribou Arabella branch is so classic and best place for me to work and meet up.
Location: Arabella, AlTaiwaen St., Sea Side, Next to Palm Hotel
Around 3.00pm I arrived to Kuwait International Fair main entrance and saw huge traffic in the entrance. So I tried to find a parking close to the event location. At that day, the weather is so sunny and hot. So I arrived to the guests entrance, I forget to bring my invitation car with me, so the entrance staff refused to let me in. After minutes, their were another lady holding a guests name and thanks god our blog name is listed.
I stayed standing around 20 minutes looking for a place to sit but it is so busy, hot and terrible to sit under this pressure. So I enforced myself to leave the event because first of all the place should be only for guests/VIP and everyone is entered, their should be extra places to sit, the organization of the event is not that good and the weather didn’t helped me much. So I had to leave back home.
Last year’s event Redbull Car Park Drift 2012 were much better. It is much organized and the event started at night were much helpful. If you need to find more about the event, check 7ajidude’s event coverage post.
White Expo organized their exhibition this year at AlHamra Tower in the last four days. Last Thursday, I visited their expo to see what’s new and if there is anything interesting to get for myself. However, the expo were bit quite and had time to walk all through the expo. I’m really happy to see new small businesses, projects and innovations in our country. I bought some new home made fragrance from one of the businesses their and I say the fragrance is absolutely professionally made. Compared to White Expo 2012 exhibition, I like last year’s expo, as it had much exposure and activities.
New innovation started with creating your dream garden into a glass jar. I followed Terra Garden on Instagram while ago and saw their products and services. However, I planned to visit Terra Garden Store located in Shuwaikh (AlRai Center). You can create your garden with any shape and items you need to add-on. I got inspired and thought to build my own garden and place it at my room. There prices start’s from 20KD plus.
I always prefer to choose KDD ice-creams. I saw an ice-cream man on my way to the chalet. Therefore, I asked him what do you have something new for me today. So he recommended me the new LuLu biscuit ice-cream either Vanilla/Chocolate flavor. Vanilla was my choice and it is absolutely the same ingredients as the ordinary LuLu ice-cream, but KDD made it as a biscuit cone. I liked it and prefer to have one anytime!.
October a pinky month were the global celebrate by spreading the awareness of breast cancer. Last year AlHamra Tower began their campaign AlHamra Tower: Pinky Month. I captured this photo last night and it look’s fabulous.
Yesterday suddenly Fries King logo published all over the internet and social media. I’m not sure yet if this is officially made or just a campaign for Burger. Burger is now rebranded as Fries King. I checked Burger King website and saw the website changed to Fries King.
