Ah, Ramadan. A time where bellies routinely spend about 14 hours a day hollow with emptiness, only to be filled up again for the rest of the evening until sleep. Muslims fast intermittently during Ramadan to fulfill a sp
Although Kuwait has developed a reasonably large number of influencers and social celebrities over the last few years given the size of the country, influencers have been around since the early 2000s, mainly in the form of blogs which were the earliest and most primitive forms of social media.

World Environment Day is June 5th, what’s your alternative to Single Use Plastic?
When thinking about single use plastics, the immediate example that tends to spring to mind is plastic bags.
