عليهم بالعافية الكويتين مغامرين جسورين من عمر.
كما يقول الشاعر
فاز باللذات من كان جسورا

الخرافي من المجاميع الاقتصادية التي احترمها حيث أن أخلاقياتهم في الأعمال والتجارة عالية جداً، وباستعراض المجاميع الاقتصادية في الكويت أجدهم الأنظف على الإطلاق

وإن كان خطهم السياسي لا يناسبني أبداً

Erzulie said...

GET OUT! KRISPY!? And no I'm not happy! As if we need another source to contribute to this country's obesity!

"نفتح نادي صحي يم كريسبي كريم جنه مو لنا" لووول حق اللي راح يسحون بتأنيب الضمير نفسي :-)

الله يباركلهم و يزيدهم و ينفع بهم الأمة

ee wallah 3alaihom bil 3afya
3ala fikra, the best tijara in Kuwait is always food related, and according to last years Times magazine, Kuwait has the largest obese number of people in the world.

shadyq80, I agree, doughnuts ARE evil lol :-)

Ms.Baker said...

iDip-

The important thing is: when do they open?

MsB, throwing calorie and fat caution to the wind...

xphobia said...

هذا اللي يروج السياحة بالكويت
الاكل والبلعة
وراح تربح نوادي الرياضة ومحلات المقاسات الكبيرة
وعلينا بالعافية

Last year, lo-carb diets were all the rage, hence Krispy Kreme's stock took a downturn (along with every other carb food seller - heck, they were even growing lo carb potatoes - OMG!)

Lo-carb is now absolutely on the outs, and carb-y comfort foods in moderation is in.

Hence, Al-Khorafi is smart.

P.S. To all the spoilsports: I'm a pretty healthy eater and love salads and soy, and I believe there isn't anything wrong with a having a doughnut once in a while... it's all about moderation and burning off what you eat. We Kuwaities are a nation of lazy bums who are used to instant gratification via mass consumption of whatever...

I mean, please, you might as well shut down some of the Burger King's, Pizza Hut, MacDonalds and Starbucks with their humongous whipped cream caramel coffees first, rather than take pot shots at doughnuts and one doughnut joint...

Ashoofkum sikketow about MacDonalds and BK? :P

Yours,
MsB, the self appointed doughnut defender who is in a cranky mood...

iDip said...

اللهم زدهم من لدنك صحة في النفس والمال والابدان
واعز اقتصاد الكويت بهم بعد فضلك يا منان

Guys,
Al-Kharafi bought %6.7 but I'm not sure if KK will open in Kuwait.

da vinci,
جسورين..نعم
مغامرين..الله اعلم

Walladah,
ولا يناسبني البتة :)

laialy_q8,
Since I'm always updated with business NEWS (tongue in the cheek), I don't know ;)

erzulie,
just resist!

judy abbott,
doughnuts almost taste the same, but KK is one of the best doughnuts I tried.

kila ma6goog,
indeed
يستاهلون وتستاهل الطيب يا طيب :)

search for the maverick,
lol
وللي ما يحسون بتأنيب الضمير محل بااااكة

Shady Q80,
I'm Evil ;)

hazolat,
I think -for some- eating is the best they can do!

xphobia,
may the resistant prevail!

Ms.Baker,
Balance is a virtue we all pray for!
pray for me :)

Dear iDip,

Sorry to comment on your previous post here, but I want to make sure you read it.

Bro, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I'm truely honoured and humbled by your mentioning me in the previous post the way you did.

Thank you very, very much for your encouragement and support, and thank you for the joy you brought me while reading your hillarious and eloquent poem! Rare skill...Simply brilliant!

Just got back from a weekend away from any technology (except, of course, a good CD player- yes, still no iPod!) to be pleasantly surprized by your post! Bro, I really can't thank you enough no matter what I write! :-) And no matter what I do..ma agayish ya iDip :-)

Thanks bro :-)

ScarlO said...

Doughnuts are evil, I agree with shady

Judy Abbott said...

Idip KK is about to open in kuwait... someone took its franchise

ZiZoTiMe said...

When man ?!
give us the time of the opening day
i can't wait anymore .. I'm starving !! @@

NuNu™ said...

YUMMYYYYY!! Wanasa!!

Erzulie said...

I agree, moderation is key (that rhymes).
But most Kuwaitis are unfamiliar with moderation; it's a foreign, untouched concept.
Of course, there's going to be Krispy hype. Remember when the first McDonald's opened? The huge line? Well, it may be the same for Krispy.
Once in a while is great, but I don't think people know how much cals are packed in that thing.
More fast food, more gyms, better business? Stuff 'em and then shrink 'em...

Hazolat said...

iDip,
You're right, for many, eating is a kind of an escape from life's frustrations. 7aram wallah, cuz then you'll not only be frustrated but overweight on top of it.

da Vinci said...

أخي iDip

القصد الكويتيون مغامرين هم آباؤنا و اجدادنا جالوا سواحل افريقيا و الهند و تعرف باقي السالفة رجال ذاك الزمن مغامرين.
مو مثل هذي الايام مغامرة بالبورصة و النتيجة خساير في خساير .

iDip said...

Zort,
You deserve more dear :)
When I read/see such a creative way of predicting the future, I can't do less.

Scarlo,
and I'm more evil!

Judy Abbott,
Good NEWS!
I think I should start a diet.

zizotime,
the same here ... waiting...

erzulie,
وعلى قولة المثل
رزق القطاوة عالخاملات

da vinci,
و ما اجملها من مغامرة :)
