    (Will post updates to the thread Surrey & Kuwait) We've been denied water for the past two days. Here I thought it was the gov't doing it..as if there was a shortage. But this morning, there was a big red sticker stuck on the building. It basically says the owner has not paid the water bill or something according to my husband's terse translation. Turns out, he has not paid it in over 17 years! And now he is increasing all of our rents by 70KD. He Is threatening not to pay the water bill unless the whole building pays the rent on the 1st. Is it legal for him to use water as a threat to get $$? Im so pissed...but have no idea what to do. This sucks with 4 kids and an 8 month old baby. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated AND replied to! xoxox ps. Does anyone know of a 2 bedroom apartment under 350KD?

    Guys to help and update you and save you some headache.All EMS and USPS express mail now goes to Hateen Post office. The post office is located next to the Hatten Co-op. You will see a small EMS sign outside the building. When you go in go left (near the stamp machine box) there is a room with some guys on the computer they will first check if your package has arrived. If it arrived he will write the date down on a paper. Give that paper to the front desk and tell them whether it's a box or envelope. After that he will go get your package in the back. You sign a form with a copy of your civil ID. Then you take your package to customs area in the back on right side. Once clear you pay the 1kd stamp from the machine. Much easier than traffic congested Khaifan. But remember it's for EMS or USPS mail. Normal mail still gets sent to khaifan

    So I've been vaping for a few months now and was wondering how is the vaping scene in Kuwait doing. I recently moved to mods from e-go cigs (because those things are too flimsy and whatnot) and I'm completely loving it, I've been a cigarette smoker for around 5 years now but vaping has more or less been keeping my cigarette usage down to almost nothing. Me setup so far: Sigelei Telescopic 13 with mini vivi nova tank, vaping on (pretty terrible) Dekang Cherry. What about you guys? What are your setups? How did you find the whole vaping experience?

    I have recently moved to a place very near this beach and would love to swim regularly in the sea, but everything I've read on this blog or other places on-line suggest this is a bad idea due to pollution. But, all that information is at least 4 years old if not older and much of it anecdotal based on no evidence whatsoever. Does anyone have any up-to-date information regarding water quality, I'm mostly worried about the dangers from pollution and sewage rather than jet skiis or kite surfers. I've been to the beach a few times and haven't noticed any bad smells or anything like that, but I haven't seen anyone doing any real swimming either, just standing around in the water. I've entered the Flying Start Triathlon, so I'm keen to swim in the sea regularly to improve my ability but don't want to spend half the time ill due to swallowing sewage! Any insight would be appreciated.

    Did you see the news on tv? They do not collect the garbage in Lebanon for almost a month and people are about to lose their mind that they even injured military members in the name of environmentalism.

    Is there anyway to claim the VAT back from these retailers?many websites automatically exclude the VAT but there are some who have no Idea about it and they ask me to contact the local tax office,any help on this would be really appreciated because the savings are like almost 20% when the VAT is excluded and the sneakers I'm looking for are deadstock everywhere except a few retailers in Europe and UK that dont exclude the VAT. p.s:Does anyone know about the courier service DPD?do they deliver to Kuwait?does anyone have any experience?like is it door to door or postoffice like? thanks

    Good morning folks This morning I drove all the way to the Saudi border in Salmy and came back. I wanted to cross the border but unsure of what really is waiting for me there. I want to drive all the way to Dubai/Saudi Arabia by car exclusively for the experience of traveling by car. Any recommendations on how to plan this itinerary? This site is useful for me, but not rwally sure how many hours/days it would take to drive all the way there: http://www.distancesfrom.com/kw/distance-from-Kuwait-to-dubai/DistanceHistory/909228.aspx?IsHistory=1&GMapHistoryID=909228

    I've been ordering shipments from the internet for the past 15-20 yrs actually, and I have a box id with aramex, before today I thought aramex should be the fastest shipping or one of the fastest because it is a running company and it should ideally be better than the goverments (usually free shipping). But I was wrong, and I couldn't believe it, until I tested it myself, you know what. If you order via a company like aramex it will cost double the money and it will take twice as long. Here's the story. On February the 4th, I went to a website to order two identical things for me and my friend, and I decided just for the fun of it to use two different carriers to see which will arrive first, and also to know for myself which is the best, the free one, or the solo company one, and I must admit I was sooooooo surprised with the result. So I bought two identical items, that weight the same, and from the same state in the U.S. the same store actually, different bills to different names tho, one for my friend, and one for my friend. I've used Aramex for one item, and I've used normal delivery option and the country address/code for the second item this delivery usually cost nothing or so little, and when it arrives to Kuwait you don't pay extra, as opposed to aramex where you pay also a little to deliver from America to America's aramex address, but then when it arrives you pay again here in the aramex office depending on the weight, usually for my item it's 12kd. Anyway, the result was shocking. #1 Goverment Free Shipping. 4th February both items departed from the store. Goverment delivery (free) took 3 days traveling from state to state On 7th of February it arrived to Dubai On 8th of February it arrived to Kuwait - Here it could take few days if the employee is slacking. But if you are current you can actually go ahead and take your shipment by yourself, which I did. So I received my item on the 9th of February using the free goverment carrier here. #2 Now lets see aramex. 4th February item departed store heading toward another state 6th February item now arrives to Springfield gardens, the aramex store in newyork. 7th February Still there (weekend) 9th February Still stuck there (weekend) 11th of February I called them, it should be in Kuwait by now. But no, It's still in America and he says they are still (Sorting) the packages. and I promise you it will still be there tomorrow, in America, in their aramex store. Point of the story is, guys you can use the goverment ship, and it will arrive sooner than you think it would. No need to use these 3rd party carrier companies. specially Aramex, avoid this one. I mean if you think of it, technically a 3rd party company should be faster, better, and arrives earlier, because it also cost more, or else WHY Should you use it right? If it costs more, and it arrives slower, it just doesn't make sense, and doesn't add up right

    I'm moving back to Kuwait towards the end of the year from the US and I have a 3 month old mini-poodle. I have no idea what Kuwait is like with bringing in pets, I'll be flying with Kuwait Airways from JFK. I'm hoping to be able to register Floyd (my pup) as a service dog, in hopes that it'd be easier to travel with him (except would Kuwait Airlines consider 'service' dogs a real thing? lol). thanks!

    Last night i passed by a checkpoint and got my car impounded for having a sticker in my door panels. The traffic police told me to go jabriya to settle my fine. Has anyone experienced this? How long would they impound my car? How much would it cost me to get my car back? Thank you.

    Yes you are getting ripped off unfortunately. The most critical factor is how aggressive you are driving. If you accelerate as hard as you can from stop lights and rev the car into oblivion every chance you get then you should probably change it every 3000KM to err on the side of safety. If you drive reasonably then you can go up to a interval of 8,000-12,000KM or more. It is preferable to change th filter along with the oil, but if it's an inconveniece then you can do it every other time, as long as the odometer has passed the first 10,000KM; anything less and I would change the filter along with the oil.

    helmet and full armored leathers winter is coming so no excuse, you will fall no maybe about it, then get the ninja 300, ktm 390, cbr300/500, yamaha r3 or the rtr 180, the only problem with the apache 180 is 120 top speed i cant ride it in the strechs or highways, i ride mine between 1am-5am, get one with abs and 250-500cc skip the apache, but its cheaper if you just want to learn on it and abuse it, practice locking ur front/back wheels it will save you later, never brake in a corner, the bike can always lean more, aviod target fixation i didnt think this was a big one but i learned the hard way always look where you want to go, one last thing people dnt see you at all and sometimes they do and just dont give a fuck so always cover ur brakes and have an escape plan.

    Look , we have established this many times before. Buying a car is like getting married.. and with marriage, you don't only marry the girl, but also her family. The Challenger's family (Dodge dealership in Kuwait) are unwelcoming, unhelpful and unpleasant to deal with. I don't see why would you risk so much money, effort, and time over what will end up as terrible relationship. You'll end up here like many before you ranting about their bad experience with the Dodge dealership and then try to sell the car for 6,000 dinars and claim you only bought it to sell it. Plenty of fish in the sea, move on. Maybe you'll get together in another life.

    Well the categories are meant to simplify things. When the section originally started "what people are selling" worked really well since not a lot of people were posting but over the past couple of years the section became larger and larger and much more difficult to control and keep updated. It was also getting difficult to find stuff and things that were still for sale were being pushed back pages because of the amount of new stuff being added. With the new market its going to be easier to find what you want, you don't need to register to post or even email the seller and more importantly it's going to be able to handle a lot more stuff. Give it some time, even I'm not used to it myself.

    Hey everyone. The new forum is up and it's ready to use. The old forum was using a software called phpbb while the new forum is based on one called Invision Power Board. Because of that I had to run a converter to convert the phpbb database to work with the IPB database and I don't think anything got lost... except for your avatars. But hopefully that shouldn't too big an issue. The new forum is much more user friendly to use, it's got a lot of nice features and generally looks better and works better in every way possible. I'm generally not a fan of change and the forum has been around forever with the same look so it will be a bit difficult getting used to the new look. I tried my best to use a similar color scheme so it doesn't feel too out of place and I'm hoping all of us will get used to the new forum very quickly. Finally, there has been one major change and that's with the name. From today the forum will no longer be called the forum but instead be called the community. I originally had to come up with a different name because I didn't want to install and test the new forum software under the same domain as the previous board but I've grown to like the name community better. Hope everyone likes the new board and I'm hoping this change will attract more users as well. Enjoy it!

    Hey, I'm going to travel to Dubai right after Eid so I've been looking and searching for a good hotel with a good deal and while searching, I found this "Booking.com" website, so, is it safe to book an hotel using/via this website? Did anybody have an experience (whether it's good or bad) with this website? Please tell me your experiences and opinions.

    The company I work is cutting costs and has terminated 70 people. They have promised us 3 months pay as per the labor law and any remaining payments the company owes us but hasn't specified any particular date. On the termination letter itself there is no date for the final working day, only the date when the letter was issued. But it has been announced verbally to everyone that the last working day will be 28th of February 2015. My passport is with them and they are refusing to hand it over until my visa is transferred to another company. They are refusing to include a final date on the termination letter as well. Now, according to the labor law if an employee is absent for 7 consecutive days without any reason: "An employer has the right to terminate an employee without prior notice and without paying the employee’s indemnity and compensation." Since the final working day is not included in the termination letter, I'm afraid the company can use this law against me to not pay my services. Knowing all this information, what can I do in this situation to make sure this doesn't happen? I would really appreciate any help from someone who can guide me on this issue. Thanks in advance

    If you can go upto 240 KD you can actually get a pretty decent setup. The main issue is getting the parts in kuwait. AMD CPU and motherboards are rare here and they are the actual best price to performance. Here is a part list and this one is going to be pretty much the best performance at that price range purchasable in ME region. I have a similar setup. Bought most of it on my Dubai trip lol xD AMD FX 8320 8-core 50 KD MSI 970A-G43 24.20 kD 4x2 GB DDR3-1333MHz Kingston HyperX Fury 24KD Seagate 1TB HDD Desktop 64 MB SATAIII 7200rpm 2RZ 20.10 KD MSI R9 280 GAMING 3GB 74KD THUNDER COOLERMASTER 600W 80+ Efficiency 14.80 KD Fractal Design Core 1000 Case 24.80 KD Total 231 KD This setup will be more than adequate for 1080p gaming at High/Ultra with decent framerates depending on the game All parts can be bought from http://gear-up.me/ They will take some shipping cost from UAE but its not too expensive. Id recommend buy what you can from here rest oder from there.

    In USA employees in electronic stores and businesses receive higher payments for example compare to employees in xcite stores, also building rents are twice as much compare to Kuwait stores, but still stores like best buy amazon Newegg and others sell at much lower prices and also has up to date latest items... companies in middle east scamming people with promos and cash backs on out dated electronic stuff

    Bought a king clone from jawi and popped my 18650 battery in it. Wasn't firing and the mod started overheating. Tried it with different atomizers to no avail, it doesnt overheat without an atomizer though. Any ideas? I know its not the battery, works with my VV.

    I thought the videos were allright - but they were way to long, lost interest about 2 minutes in. I would suggest chopping it up a bit more and spend less time on each scene. Check out these videos on how Edgar Wright does scenes/ close-ups and you get a feel for how quick they switch between fast-motion scenes and still tell a very interesting story (without words even)

    e- cigs have a concentrated liquid in a cartridge thats vaporized inside the device. A vapir system has a little compartment into which you can insert tobacco or the herbs of your choice and set the ideal vaporizing temperature. The Vapir device I've seen is about the length of a flute and thicker than a wireless microphone and has a built-in battery or you can plug it into the wall for party sessions
