Day 98



Teddy wishes he had thumbs...


Teddy got lost in the Salhiya area today. That area does not belong to Kuwait, I felt like I was in another country. Two countries: India and Philippines. It was such a trip. I decided to check one of their complexes out and there was not a Kuwaiti in sight. Very surreal. I watched a game of billiards that they seemed to take way too seriously but left soon after I finished my milkshake. I felt like an outsider.

Well some areas here in Kuwait aren't really a Kuwaiti area such as " Al Hasawi " and " Jelieb Al Shuokh" their residents aren't really Kuwaiti's ( Bedoon) and expats.

salam teddy, i hope you are aright where was your owner. you owner should help you find your way out. you are right with what you have felt. this area not for kuwaitis, this is for people who are not kuwaitis. it looks that the milkshake taste delicious, Bel3afeya. i felt that you are not an outsider when you left the complex. do you how i knew that? because i have a strong feeling about who is around me. il7amadallah allah gave me that na3ma. i hope to see you soon safe. inshallah.

Dear Teddy, Maybe you don't have thumbs but I am sure our thumbs are up all the time for you.. We trust on you, so use them wisely..
Yesterday, Thai cuisine .. Today, India & Philippines Communities!! Are Asian Cultures your cause this month??
Or, you are searching for a girlfriend from these nationalities??Unfortunately this is the new fashion in our small Kuwaiti society :/

teddy is doing the right thing...why do spaces have to be just for kuwaitis or just for expats? why do we have to have a segregated society,its great teddy is seeing all aspects, sounds and sights of kuwait.

Yasumi beat me to it! Any plans for the 100th post? It's like 'Obama's first 100 days in office'.. I don't know who's been more successful ;p
