Let’s continue with our tour inside the exhibition of Dubai Air Show 2011. The hall was divided into 3 parts; main hall, west hall & the east hall. Each one of them was enormous. I loved the booths of every participant, the designs & decoration were amazing. I kinda learned some stuff, husband explained few things, & when I was on my own, i had to ask the people who are taking care of their booths. There was a huge helicopter in the middle of east hall i think; I asked the guy if I can get inside it & he gave me the green light It was fun! Took lots of pictures
Now, we go outside . . . Where the real models are standing or sitting . . . whatever Anyways, the space outside was marvelous, huge, big, I can’t explain it! And so many giant & small models were displayed outside; Boeing, private jets, fighters, helicopters, army ones etc etc etc! We managed to get inside a private on which was amazing! Its price around 14 million US Dollars, damn it, we only have 10 Million in our bank account that’s why we couldn’t buy it
As I said earlier, we were heading to Dubai for the sake of this show which my husband is a regular visitor to it every 2 years! We purchased our tickets for this show last August & were ready for the show. I have to say something; The staff at the exhibition were very helpful, BUT there twitter account sucked because no one was answering me & the lady Sheena who’s supposed to reply to public emails completely ignored us when i sent her an email requesting a map coz we were supposed to drive there but then we decided to take the metro, more fun
We reached Terminal 1 around 10:30 & headed there by Taxi! The place was very organized & well prepared. Crowded but we managed to get our badges fast coz we already had Q-Jump numbers. The security was very high & the machines were very precise in detecting anything!
I took many many pictures, I want you to see every bit of that amazing exhibition therefore i’ll divide the show to 2 parts (Indoors & Outdoors) & each post also will be divided to 2 parts! What can I do, the show was big, huge & so many things to look at & take pictures of!
Let’s take a walk around the exhibition, shall we . . .
You insert your 3 Q-Jump number here

I almost or probably completely lost hope in attending Cirque Du Soleil! Coz xCite were very greedy and didn’t allow selling tickets! except when buying up to KD200 you get 2 free tickets, and if you buy up to KD600 you get VIP ones I guess! When I confronted xCite, they replied with this:
“Sarah , Cirque Du Soleil is not an easy troupe to bring down and they are very strict in many things and dealing with them is quite a feat in itself. CDS has requested us to remove all CDS info/videos/rambles/ threads from youtube & facebook and to only leave their approved Red Ad in our site , so it is not about not able to handle criticism .Even though its us bringing them down and paying them a huge amount of money , and as said earlier do you think we didnt want to sell tickets standalone ?….there are many things that are not logical and we agree.”
Ok, I still can’t believe that’s the case but maybe they’re telling the truth, who knows! Now about the show! I wanted to know which show is coming to perform in K-Town, so I contacted Cirque Du Soleil & god their reply was the shortest one I’ve ever received:
Thank you for your interest in Cirque du Soleil.
Further to your question, yes, Cirque du Soleil will be presenting performances in Kuwait. You will find more information by visiting a Xcite Electronics store.
Cirque du Soleil”
So I went back to xCite & asked them about the show, they gave me a lil bit of clarification:
“Great ! It is all the shows put together to one for Kuwait , therefore a mix of all the best by the Cirque Du Soleil Events.”
mmmmm that sounds interesting! I really can’t wait til I attend the show on the 25th! My best friend surprised me with the tickets by sending an image to me via whatsapp! I almost had a heart attack and called her immediately:”Please, tell me you’re taking me and not going with your husband, Im you friend, your best best friend, take me”! She was laughing alot and she said “Im taking you lady, I’d never go without you, it’s you and not my husband” LOL
The event will first start with Cirque Du Soleil for 1hr and then followed by Moscow Circus for 1hr also! It starts at 7 and ends at 9! It will be held in Doha “Entertainment City”!
This movie is a huge disappointment! and add to that, it was butchered by Cinesecape! Honestly, If the movie has so many inappropriate scenes, then why show it? I was expecting alot from this movie but got nothing! It was very very slow, the storyline has nothing special in it, you cant feel the turning point at all! It has an irony, the bible, the cheating, the wife! The movie is a complete chaos! The only thing I liked is Edward Norton’s acting, he was really good! Robert De Niro was awful, he aged alot! Don’t you dare and watch it!
Today I thought of watching this movie maybe it can erase the memory of last night’s awful movie (Stone) and the idea that I paid KD 3 just to watch bullshit! Guess what? it did, this movie made laugh alot, loved it, loved it, loved it! It was light, funny and very entertaining! Loved the script, the acting and specially the toilet scene LOL that made me laugh like crazy. The little boy is smth, he really freaked me out, so cute The actor Jason Bateman is a cutie also, this is the first time I see him in a movie but he turned out to be a well-known actor (Arrested Development)! Also Jennifer Aniston looked very fresh and lovely! Watch it and enjoy your time!
Don’t ask me why I even thought about watching this movie but i did and i regret wasting 2 hrs on it! I mean, who cares about gay rights? Seriously? I love Sean Penn alot and I enjoy watching his movies, he’s a great actor but in this one he really really disappointed me! Or maybe he did it because he’s becoming a political activist! It’s very long, it talks about the life of a gay guy Harvey Milk and his political movements for gay rights! Sean Penn’s acting was the only good thing in this movie and he really looked like a gay man, that’s why he won the Oscar for that role i guess!
Logan-Marshall Green. He’s the reason I watched this movie even after I read not so good reviews about this movie! I hate movies shot in one location! I mean the setting of the movie is just one place which is the elevator in this one! Devil coming to punish a man for his sins in an elevator? Are you kidding me? And it wasn’t scary at all! if not for the dark scenes where you don’t know what will happen and then BOOM! Hated it alot and the only good thing i got from this movie is that I got to see a new face (Chriss Messina) He’s a cutie
I’ve been dying to watch this movie ever since it came out in the US and when it got to Kuwait, everybody got busy and we couldn’t go but today we didnt hv much to do so we decided to go the cinema (me and sis) and took my aunt with us Unfortunately, I got sick this morning, my throat was hurting like sm1 was cutting it with many knives, my nose is blocked and at the same time running wild, severe headache and I can’t breath! But I wasn’t about to cancel the reservation! I knew I’d be fine once i see my babies on the screen!
Paul Walker, Hayden Christensen, & Matt Dillon along with Chris Brown and other cast star in this movie! Now how can I cancel it?! The movie was fine, not that good and not that bad! The plot is kinda regular, nothing unique in it but what makes it fun is the action scenes and the blue eyes of Hayden and Paul The movie is kinda like a mix of Ocean’s 11 & The Italian Job! Robberies, fun, action, plotting, bla bla bla!
I enjoyed watching it alot, I even cried at the end of the movie because one of the characters died *sniff*! well, many characters died, and I’m expecting that to happen coz it’s an action movie, but he was one of my fav will not ruing the movie fpr ya! Watch it and you will enjoy it, if you like action
The one & only, my baby, my partner, my wife & the love of my life *stop ur dirty mind* has just made one of dreams come true Jacqui the nerd created this TV Show blog and asked me join her as a co-author *jumping*! We are both tvholic and obsessed about what’s on tv and instead of writing about it on separate blogs, she decided to create a blog derived from hers and keep it just about TV shows! It will consist of shows reviews, episode reviews, news & interviews!
Tune in to TV@CoucheAvenue & enjoy lazy nights with Jacqui & Swera
At first, I didn’t want to watch this tv show, coz I thought it was very cheesy, silly & just plain boring! But I’m proud to announce that I was way too wrong about it! Saturday & Sunday are showless days for me right now, I was bored, nothing to watch so I downloaded the 1st episode of Glee & boy I got hooked to it
It’s more like tv musical with lots of fun and action, and not to mention the script is just hilarious and make you laugh from the bottom of your heart. The actors are just perfect, each for his/her role, though Rachel irritates me but that’s the point of it I guess! I love Kurt, he’s such a cutie and not to mention Mrs. Sue, she’s so funny & witty, love her! The show also gets music singers to act/perform in some episodes. I just started watching it, and there I find my baby Josh Groban in one of the episodes acting, he’s such a cute pie but unfortunately, he didn’t perform! Maybe in the upcoming episodes I guess
This show is highly recommended
Hawaii Five-O, Alex O’Loughlin *blush*, *jump*, *scream*, *faint*
All new TV Shows started to air and old ones are coming back & Monday is filled with awesome new TV Shows such as; Hawaii Five-O, Chase, LoneStar & The Event! Also there’s Gossip Girl which is becoming really boring but hv to continue watching it for the sake of a decent closure (One Day)!
Anyways, let’s start with Hawaii Five-O, they say it’s the remake of the old original Hawaii Five-O which was in the 1970s (wasn’t even born)! The shows starts non other than candylicious Alex O’Loughlin (Back Up Plan), Scott Caan (Into The Blue), Daniel Dae Kim (LOST) & Grace Parker (The Cleaner). The cast is limited and have a good sense of humor, it suits them all! The action moves are very very good, I liked them all! The setting of the show is in Hawaii (not like the one in LOST) and is very beautiful with magnificent view and scenery! Genre is action of course and the director of the pilot episode did a great job, loved the show and I will continue watching it even if it gets boring, Alex O’Loughlin will make sure not to let his viewers feel that way
Chase, Jesse Metcalfe
hhhmmm now this one was fine but not that OMG-kinda-show, it’s a regular police drama tv show that has action in its genre ofcourse but fails to impress you that much! Chase stars Kelli Giddish (no idea who is she), Cole Hauser (Hart’s War), Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) & Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives). The cast is also limited in here but they’re kinda dull, you cam’t feel the chemistry between them, it’s like they’re forced to act with each other! The setting is in the city od Texas Houston! I don’t see this show reaching season 2 but if it does, it won’t last long but hey who knows, maybe they will spice it up a lil bit
LoneStar, James Wolk
Moving on to LoneStar, now that is a TV Show full of mystery & drama. A con-man living a double life and conning people in various cities! Stars James Wolk (Never heard of him), Adrianne Palicki (Supernatural), Jon Voight (Angelina Jolie’s Father lol), Mark Deklin (The Mentalist), Bryce Johnson (Pretty Little Liars). The cast is also limited but with extra more actors than the above mentioned TV Shows. The pilot starts in a good direction, it shows you the life that Bob/Robert’s living which is a double one traveling between 2 houses and changing his identity while conning men! Oddly, things tend to change at the end of the episode, whether it is good or bad, we will have to wait til next week to know about it! All in all, this show is good and I think there is more to it than just a man trying to con people!
The Event, Jason Ritter
Now this show’s pilot was weird, confusing & full of MYSTERY which I liked very much. This kind of show leaves you on the edge til the next episode to know what will happen next and so on! The pilot was very mysterious, it gives you this feeling that there are poeple who are not normal or have sm kind of secret but only few know about it! The Event stars Jason Ritter (Freddy Vs Jason), Sarah Roemer (Disturbia), Laura Innes (ER), Ian Anthony Dale (The Bucket List), Scott Patterson (SAW), Clifton Collins Jr. (MindHunters), Taylor Cole (HEROES), and more and more. You can see the various actors in this show who each one of them has a story hidden deep down the ocean *thriller* lol. I liked how this pilot has been directed by going back to the near past and returning to the present then later going to the near past & after that going far away in the past to set things straight to the viewers, even though you will feel lost at the beginning, you will get to know where these events are leading to. and the ending of the pilot, OH BOY! I can’t wait til next week to know what happened! This show is a winner for sure *cross fingers*.
Remember my “I HATE YOU” post!? Well, I’m over that now but the comments I’ve received from all of you people generated discussions, ideas & thoughts! One of them is to start a campaign lol and it was Semsema\’s idea to create a poster for this campaign, just for fun! She cut my face n glued it to the poster of Kick Ass movie and let me tell you it looks cute! I’m seeing myself now in that outfit hehe so who’s ready to kick some asses?! and this campaign ain’t sexist! it will be Male/Female kick ass
I’ve been looking for this movie for a long time over the net and online dvd stores, but couldn’t find til a couple of days ago and ordered it! I’ve just finished watching! and the only reason why I bought this movie is because Kevin Zegers is in it *faint*
Anyways, the movie was ok, not that good and not that bad! Boring at times because it only has 3 characters and one setting, the whole movie is set in one place! Now, I will not go talking about the characters, the plot, the climax and how good the direction was but I will talk about the main aspect of the movie! Which is about taking life or death decisions, very tough ones in order to save your life and the ones you love!
Dan (Kevin Zegers) shows how sensitive he is and naive in thinking that he can save his girlfriend who you think he doesn’t love that much, but it shows as the events of the movie develop, and was ready to jump in order to save her life (ma testahel, s7ela)! Joe (Shawn Ashmore), Dan’s best friend also tries another way in trying to save their lives (will not go into details)! but the movie shows how scared Parker (Emma Bell)-the girlfriend, was and coward, she didn’t do anything! but at the end she thought of something to save only her life!
Now in that situation, i admit, i’m gonna be a huge coward and probably die of fear rather than trying to save my life! It;s a very tough decision and believe me the situation the characters were in was very difficult to think, decide or just have any rational ideas!
Watch it if you want, to learn how to deal with such situation if you get yourself in a similar one
