Roof on Fire

Posted by rotgold on January 18, 2007

Yesterday evening while watching TV I could hear sirens of what turned out to be the firefighters coming up the street I m living. Somehow I got worried that my building was the one which was on fire because they were so close – so I looked down my balcony and saw that in the opposite building one apartment was burning. Obviously noone was at home because there was no ambulance, but I felt sorry for the people living in that apartment … and I told myself never leave the heater on while being out again.

Wanna stir up Kuwait’s society life? Be “UNSEEN” wearing these Stupidiotic Black Bar glasses. On their own, Black Bars appear to be ridiculously silly looking sunglasses, on a photograph they look like censor bars. Find more stuff you don’t need on http://www.stupidiotic.com.

Advertising 1960

Posted by rotgold on December 20, 2006

  

It is interesting how advertising changed! I found the image on the website of the Arab Image Foundation, an organisation which aims to promote photography in the Middle East and to preserve the photographic heritage of this region. Maybe you might even find a photo of your great-grand-father ;-) http://www.fai.org.lb/

What a Girl Wants

Posted by rotgold on December 16, 2006

If a girl wants to go out in Sao Paulo her handbag needs to be big enough to carry a pack of cigarettes, lighter and a gun. A friend of my sister is Brazilian living in Munich and designing her own handbags – also fit for Q8 (think mobile phone instead of gun). Each bag is completely handmade and a unique piece. You can see her collection on http://serendipity-shop.de For the bag featured click on “Taschentick”, section “Mica Male”.

Future Hope Laundry

Posted by rotgold on December 16, 2006

I always wonder what makes all those small shop owners name their minimarkets “Lucky Bride” and ” Sabah Al Kheir Ya Salmiya”, a laundry ” Queen of Dishdashas” or a beauty salon “Birds Nest”? Yesterday I discovered that the small grocery shop next to my building is being transformed into a laundry including a brand new signage – the name … see for yourself ;-)

Sex or Chocolate

What can you have on demand, lasts as long as you want and always leaves you satisfied? If you answered sex, stop reading now. You have obviously no need for chocolate. For the rest of you – make a date with Chocolate & More, a Kuwaiti ambition to sell chocolates made in heaven.  There you will find confections for everyone … and you tell me what is better – sex or chocolate ;-) Check it out http://www.chocolates-more.com

Red rules

 Xmasflower

Stepping out of the elevator – red.  Walking down the corridor to my office – red. Going to pick up a cup of tea – red. All I  can see is red. Somebody turned our office into a sea of Xmas flowers – those which even my Grandmom considered as out-of-fashion since 1956 ;-)

Advertising hits

Advertising hits its target? Or is it the other way round? Somebody badly needs a new car – what about a Lamborghini – oh how can i forget, it is already gone! What about an Aston Martin? Or better a Touareg or maybe a Cayenne? Yabeela!
