Dear Al Shaya, Sultan Centre, Carrefour, Costa Coffee, Christmas Bazaars, British Embassy, Ahmadi Music Group, Staged In Kuwait and Other Retailers

On behalf of the many lovers of Christmas here in Kuwait I would like to thank you, and your wonderful staff, for making Kuwait so full of seasonal cheer this year. Never in my 34 years has it ever felt so very, very Christmassy... and it's only November 30th.

Breakfast With Santa at Santa Village, Salmiya Church

Really? A Yellow Ticket For Just Parking On The Street

As you can see there are no yellow and black stripes on kerb and there were no signs saying no parking anywhere along there. All the cars parked there had tickets and I warned the person who was just about to park about it. This is the street in front of Saveco, Salmiya. Not fair at all, definitely disputing this one. 

Feeling Super Christmassy at Carrefour, Avenues


More panettone, stollen and Christmas choccies for the kiddlywinks

Baubles, balls, bells and just about anything else you might need to decorate
and feel festive.

The Aston Martin DB11 in Kuwait

I got to see this gorgeousness up close last night at the British Embassy it's really breathtaking. Retailing for KD 79,000 it's going on my list to Santa as no good asking the husband. No doubt the new 007 will be driving this baby around shortly. Top Gear's glowing review here.

To my friend Debbie -  DB... Coincidence? I think not :O)

The Marvellous Red Arrows Acrobatic Air Display in Kuwait
