You Need To Watch This Now - The Magic Pill

I've been Keto for months now, nearing 5 months. I will never go back to carbs. I may not always be strictly Keto but I now know that sugar and carbs are poison for me. My Keto journey started with wanting to lose some weight, which I did, but I am staying Keto because it feels amazing. No frozen shoulder that my dr said would need 2 years physiotherapy, no constipation that I have had most of my life, no joint pains that I thought were just age plus wear and tear, no depression, no mood swings, great energy and mental clarity. 

You need to watch this movie it will change your life.

Festival of Lights at ASCC

For the first time in Kuwait, the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre is organising a Festival of Lights. Discover a world of colour and imagination in this uniquely-designed experience of light art installations. Light art is an applied art form in which light is the main medium of expression. The stunning ambience illuminates the Centre and enhances its architectural beauty. The installations are made by hand-picked talented artists. It includes projections, mapping, and virtual reality to name a few. Work by the Canadian “Irregular Studio”, titled “Control No Control” will be on display. The artists are also conducting workshops, talks and live performances throughout the festival.

“Floresta Encantada” is an interactive virtual reality journey through an enchanted forest filled with magical characters that lead you to a shamanic experience. Combining the latest technologies with the knowledge of indigenous people, VJ Suave lead us into a world which will respond to our gestures and movements.

Control No Control by Daniel Iregui
The Control No Control interactive LED sculpture installation by Canadian-Colombian artist Daniel Iregui happily combines everyone’s fascination for bright lights, sound, and interactivity. Using their hands, arms or entire body, Control No Control audience can control the graphic display and motion of the installation and its soundscape. 
The Sadu Matrix by Jawad Altabtabai
The Sadu Pixel Matrix is an installation that was conceived for the SADI 2019 artist residency program. The installation is a three-dimensional interpretation of common motifs found in traditional Sadu work. It is an interactive installation that requires the observant to view it from multiple vantage points.
VJ Suave Short Films
Mixing street art with video mapping, VJ Suave gives life to different characters and stories. Each scene is drawn frame by frame using the traditional animation technique. The characters are running, flying, swimming and generating depth effects in continuous motion. Through experiments, VJ Suave developed their own techniques and tools to design and capture videos.
The facades of the Space Museum and the Theatre will be illuminated with projection mapping animations. These large-scale projections are a collaboration between the Centre, the Festival of Lights (Berlin) and MP Studio. The Festival of Lights (Berlin) is an international event series and is one of the most famous light festivals worldwide. MP-STUDIO is an award-winning company who are pioneers in 3D projection mapping. The projections will have different themes using special effects and light techniques.
Perception by Hessah Al Zayed
Perception is a light art installation by Hessah Al Zayed, a lighting artist and engineer based in Kuwait. The installation uses different materials to enhance visual experience. It is inspired by geometric abstraction that interacts with lights, shadows and materials. It is a minimalist design that transforms the viewer’s experience of the object. The use of orange and blue mimics the extremes of cold and warm temperatures that complement each other in lighting design.
VJ Suave has an audiovisual tricycle adapted with a projector. It is used so that small narratives with characters can travel through open spaces, lighting the walls on a large scale. This projection conveys art to all audiences and creates unique moments for the viewer.

The GulfRun Karting Endurance Race at Kuwait Motor Town

The GulfRun Karting Endurance Race will take place starting on Friday 8th of March 2019 at Kuwait’s most advanced go-karting facility, Kuwait Motor Town.  Registration link.
This event was launched in 2011 to create an exciting motorsport competition in Kuwait, with the first edition being 26 hours long – the first of its kind in the region. Over the past 5 years, GulfRun Karting has evolved into a fully-fledged endurance race that follows International regulations from start to finish. With professionalism in mind, the race is marshalled by a certified team and the karts have been purchased specifically for this race.
The GulfRun Karting Endurance Race must be performed by teams. The size of each team must be a minimum of 4 drivers and a maximum of 12 drivers. Teams will have the option of competing in one of two categories:
  • Rookie: 50% of the drivers must be newcomers (meaning they have not participated in GulfRun Karting Race before)
  • Elite: More than 50% of the drivers must be experienced (meaning they have participated in GulfRun Karting Race before)
In addition to the exciting endurance race, the area around the track is converted into a fun carnival before the race. Several activities, local stores and restaurants will be available to participants and visitors of all ages to enjoy during the race. 
So assemble your crew and put your go-karting stamina to the test!

Fabulous Fun Farayya, we will be back.

A very enjoyable trip. Next time a Lebanese friend invites you, jump at the chance and go. It's not cheap but the adventure, service, food and hospitality are absolutely outstanding. 

Some excellent travel tips from Trip Advisor contributor, Raheyel.

Seasons in LEBANON
Explore Lebanon in Winter
From the warm Mediterranean coast to the snow-covered mountains, Winter (December-March) presents visitors to Lebanon with a host of contrasts. Winter along the coast is a mild affair, characterized by warm days and cool evenings, with temperatures ranging from 10-20°C (50-67°F). As such, it is a wonderful time to visit the many historical and cultural attractions along the coast, including the ancient cities of Jbail (Byblos), Saida (Sidon), and Sour (Tyre). Not only will you avoid the crowds, but you may actually find yourself as the solitary visitor to these ancient ruins.
The real draw during the winter, however, is Lebanon's winter sports. With six ski resorts catering to skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels, and kilometers of backcountry cross-country and snowshoe trails waiting to be explored, Lebanon has something for everyone. Winter is the rainy season in Lebanon, which translates into plenty of powder at the higher elevations where temperatures range from -5-5°C (25-40°F). If timed correctly, a visit during the tail end of the ski season affords visitors the opportunity to ski in the morning and take a relaxing swim in the Mediterranean in the afternoon.
The country's famous nightlife, entertainment, and shopping do not slow down during the winter months. There is also a popular classical music festival each February at the Al-Bustan Hotel which features renowned classical pieces and performers.
Near perfect weather and a display of colorful wildflowers. Soak up the beauty of a Mediterranean spring in Lebanon.
Explore Lebanon in Spring
Springtime (April-May) is one of the most pleasant times to visit Lebanon. The near perfect weather, 0-15°C (32-60°F) in the mountains and 15-25°C (58-72°F) along the coast, makes it a great time to discover Lebanon while soaking up the beauty of a Mediterranean spring.
Lebanon's archaeological treasures are on full display during the spring months, with snow-topped peaks in the background and bright wildflowers springing up amid the ruins. The Spring weather also makes it a fantastic time for outdoor activities. Varied terrain, scenic vistas, and historic environs combine to create unique trekking opportunities throughout the country. Particularly popular are hikes through one of the Cedar tree reserves (Al-Shouf, Horsh Ehden, Tannourine) or treks down into the majestic Qadisha Valley.
Lebanon also has great mountain biking, caving, rafting, and paragliding through spectacular mountains-to-blue-oceans landscapes. And, after a day of activities in the mountains or sightseeing on the coast, you can spend cool spring evenings sampling Lebanon's gastronomic delights at one of the country's many open-air cafés and restaurants.
With sun and fun, mountain escapes, and cultural festivals, Lebanon's summer offers something for everyone.
Explore Lebanon in Summer
Summer (June-September) in Lebanon is made for sun worshipping, beaches, mountain escapes, and cultural festivals. The clear skies and warm temperatures along the coast, 20-32°C (68-90°F), lure Lebanese and tourists alike to the waters of the Mediterranean. The atmosphere here is a mixture of trendy “see and be seen” and utter relaxation.
As usual, Lebanon offers tourists more than a traditional “sun and fun” vacation. When not soaking up the sun, visitors can soak up some history at a plethora of archaeological sites. For a change of pace, head to the mountains. Plenty of outdoor activities, including hiking, rafting, and mountain biking, await in the cooler mountain climes, 6-22°C (45-70°F).
For arts enthusiasts, summer is when Lebanon hosts a large number of festivals, featuring both local and international performers. The largest of these festivals are held at historic and archaeological sites, serving as breathtaking backdrops for performances. For example, the Baalbek Festival is hosted on the site of spectacular Roman temples; the Beiteddine Festival is held at a 200 year-old palace in the mountains of the Chouf, and the Byblos Festival takes place in one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.
The international festivals attract premier talent in a variety of performance areas, ranging from opera or jazz to renowned dance companies and famous comedians. For festivals on a smaller scale with more of a local flavor, many villages throughout the country host summer fairs or festivals.
Fall is harvest time in Lebanon, with cooler weather, fewer crowds, and scenic natural beauty.
Explore Lebanon in Fall
Fall (October-November) brings cool, crisp weather that is perfect for taking in Lebanon's rich historical treasures. Temperatures range from 5-20°C (40-68°F) in the mountains and from 15-28°C (60-85°F) on the coast. Since these months are outside the summer and winter high seasons, there will be fewer crowds and better deals on accommodations.
Leisurely explore the country's numerous archaeological sites and historic monuments. Go on a hike in the Cedars forest or one of the nature reserves. Take a gastronomical tour of Lebanon, sampling regional specialities at the great restaurants scattered throughout the country. Don't miss wine tasting at the vineyards in the Békaa Valley, the citrus harvest in the South, and apple picking in the North.
Hire a small outfitter to take you on a trip along the ancient olive route to see the harvesting of the olives, learn how olive oil is pressed, and purchase Lebanese olive oil and luxurious olive oil soap.
From the snow-covered mountains to the warm Mediterranean coast, Lebanon's winter is a season of contrasts.

Happy Year of the Pig

Brexit in a Nutshell

"From my experience living in both the UK and other EU countries the difference isn’t about British Arrogance or British media but is actually a part of the very make up of the British People.
British People like rules, and we follow them. When arriving in a new situation we will automatically look for the rules and if we do not find them we are quite lost. In contrast (Most of my experience is in France and Spain) people seem much more likely just to enter a new situation and start doing what they want until they are informed of the rules.
How this translates to EU is that in the UK we accept every EU rule and implement it 100%, in fact it is normally picked up by our own bureaucracy who ban anything that doesn’t follow the rules and anything that may break the rules - and anything that could be seen as breaking the rules in the future, plus a few things they just don’t like and could be in some way linked to the new rule. So we actually end up adopting the rule 110% going further than even the rule makers ever considered.
In many EU countries they look at the rule and think ‘this bit is ok, that bit doesn’t work for us’ and so adopt 50–80% of the rule. therefore there is much less change and as a result much less negativity is created. I honestly believe that if we took the same approach to EU rules as Spain we would happily still be members now as we would see the benefits but not see it as “losing” part of our identity - but as Rule Follower is our identity I guess that was never going to happen."
Adam Brown's answer on Quora. Which for me, at least, rings very true.
