Do you see how Kuwait is Black and White?


In 1979, when my mom first landed in Kuwait, she was amazed at the religious intensity of the nation. 
She ran around the airport asking all the reverent fathers for their blessings, as she's come to a new country speaking a new language, to start of her career, her life...
Only when she reached her hostel, made new friends and got talking did she realize, that all the men in white, she asked for blessings were nothing, but regular arab men! 
 oh well, life is an adventure!  :D


The national wear of Kuwaiti men (arab men, at large) is a long white tunic called the 'Dishdasha'.
Their traditional wear, goes on to show how hot the country is. The turban originally was a protective shield from the unforgiving rays of the sun, and the color white reflects light and heat, keeping the body cool.


whereas, the women, traditionally, wear a long black loose cloak, over whatever they're wearing, 
depicting their modestly, covering from head to toe. 

the new age, fashion forward ladies, get the same "abaya" , in a more figure hugging, form fitting silhouette. 

ANYHOOOO, this is how kuwait seems black and white and shades of brown. 
(watch my video "Wanna go for a drive?" on youtube to know more about the brown.. :) )


Now no body can argue about the fact that Black and white is a classic combination!

Thanks for reading.. See you soon :)

btw, what is the color of your country?

  4. The travel insurance sector is well known for its low premiums. But on the down side, the fine print can be restrictive. And 2014 could be the year in which premiums start to go up again. Steve Manton of Manton Associates, a consultant to the travel insurance sector, says: "As the economy improves, long haul is going to become bigger again ray ban sunglasses and that will push claims up. Claims are more expensive when the distances are longer."Thinking about similar issues, Vincent of Axa says the size of medical claims is rising. "If claims continue to go up, we need to charge more to cover the cost of them," he says. "So if costs go up, we'll have to look at the terms and conditions or at our rating."Lawyer Daniel Scognamiglio warns of fake ray bans the dangers – mainly to young men – of mixing alcohol and swimming pools.
    And spurious appeal. Sunglasses are so hot they're cool. The poster for Undercover Blues (reviewed opposite) asserts its with-it ways by picturing its principals looking dark around the eyes - groovy Ray-Bans adorn Mom, Dad and Baby. The image is cocky, which is why six Tom Cruise hits have our hero lazing in the shades, though rayban sunglasses Cruise seems a rank amateur beside Manhattan Murder Mystery's Anjelica Huston, who not only wears sunglasses indoors, but wears them indoors while it's raining. No wonder Susan Sarandon uses them to signal her transfiguration from schoolmarm to temptress in The Witches of Eastwick (1987) - they go so well with a dry martini and a low-cut bikini.
    Health and safety rules designed to prevent people from drowning have encouraged pool discount ray bans providers to opt for wading rather than swimming or diving pools in the past decade, according to leading manufacturer Aqua Platinum. Cases have been brought against providers under the manslaughter laws.Some brands have become such an accepted part of our daily lexicon that their etymological origins aren’t even questioned. Take Ray-Ban, for instance, the sunglasses brand was born in 1937 to protect the pilots of the US Air Force from cheap ray ban sunglasses the sun – to literally ban the sun rays. While sun protection is still paramount to Ray-Ban’s offering – as is the original aviator style – the brand has come a long way from those origins.With such an established product at its heart, it would be all too easy for it to rest on its laurels, yet Ray-Ban has long been as interested in innovation as it is in its fake ray bans own heritage. But when your starting point is an icon of its own, how do you pursue the new without attempting to reinvent
