  3. Have fun, 1001! 🙂

    Wooo HOOO, Deema! Thank you! So it’s OK if I go to your blog and steal stuff for my blog?? LOL! I love the way you keep us up to date on the arts in Kuwait.

    BTW, I am guessing that the people doing this are students – and they have managed to ignite a lot of interest in all the communities in Kuwait by getting the word out so effectively. Hats off to effective PR!
