Filed under: KUWAIT,LOVE,PERSONAL — by noracassandra @ 8:07 pm

I read yesterday from a girl; actually a very young girl saying there is no real love anymore today… it kind of broke my heart! So this is what I told her today!

So I’m taking this time to send you a message telling you about things people learn from life… ok not all but some people do!

I’m ½ Kuwaiti so I have lived there and know how things worked… I was married to a Kuwaiti for less than a year as well! Now from most Kuwaiti men I got the idea there is no love… they are all full of s*%^…

Now… love is not something you feel as they tell you butterflies and twinkles in your belly… it’s not you can’t sleep the nights thinking of him (or her)… it’s nothing as such! That is called excitement… just the butterflies you get before the teacher calls your name to give you your test result back… the same as when you get when you see a sex scene or a good kiss scene on TV!! That is hormones and excitement!

What they never taught me in Kuwait love is from both sides… you both have to work so fu*^#*@ hard to make it continue! Most men in Kuwait just come home ask for a f*^# and go to the dewaneya (place where Kuwaiti men gather) till 12am and expect you to make the love work! Now who said I fell crazy in love with my husband when we met?? I didn’t.. I lived with him for 1 year before he asked me to marry him! And I said ok but wasn’t even sure… then a another year we worked on issues… but I saw we were still going forward not back… so we married… and I have wanted to leave him like 100 times in the last 4,5 years with him… I wanted to have sex with at least 10 guys through this time (but i didn’t)… so is this what you thought love was? Fights, wanting to have sex with other men (or women), hating each other, and hoping to even die sometimes???

You see you need to learn how to love some one even if it is your child… you think children are born and loved by their parents (especially from their mums)??? Even that love is to be learned… you think it is because they told you it should be… there are mothers never wanting their children, not because they are bad women but because they just simply were not ready to love them! Love is to be learned… you learn to love your child, as you learn how to love your mum or dad, and the same way you learn to love a stranger (partner to be maybe)… even your friends, it’s not you are born to love them but you learn to!

Now between two friends… I mean good friends… I mean perfectly best friends… aren’t their fights?? My god my and Emmi (my life’s best friend) have had our disagreements, or different opinions… but why do we still love each other so much?? It’s because we learned, then we both worked on it… if I was the only one trying to work it out and Emmi has a stubborn head and wouldn’t do anything to help it work, do you think we are still friends??? Of course not! 🙂

Same thing with love and family relationships, when a man can’t afford to get a maid or a big 3 bedroom house, or simply pay the woman to do her hair every 2 weeks… and the woman on the other side will never take it as her friend has all that… so why can’t I have it too she thinks… will it work??? when a man comes home from work asking about lunch, then eats, get his afternoon sex, then sleeps and wakes up and goes to see his friends then come home at 12 expecting the wife to be waiting and dinner served for him then sex and sleep and morning goes to work… and he would do this every day… do you think it would work?

Life is communication… you give up things and the other gives up things! You keep time for each other… you fight, but then both think and solve it… both take care of the house, children and the food… both have own friends and still can sit with the other’s friends and be able to handle it or at least pretends for 1 or 2 times a month!!!

Who said my husband like musicals??? Or dance shows??? But he would still sit and watch and even talk nicely about it so he won’t hurt my feelings! Who said I care if Omonia (his national team) wins or loses??? But I still would sit and support them even if it means listening to him talking about them for 1 hour!!! I don’t mind when he goes out with his friends for drinks in Agia Napa (and if you know what kind of a place is Agia Napa you will understand how hard it is)… and he as well doesn’t mind babysitting when I go out in Agia Napa too with my friends!

Love is not forever happiness and safety!!! It is full of sadness, hard times and dangers! The trick is… can you make it last???

Ps; maybe this will give you the idea what you demand from the man (woman) you think of spending your life with…

So the race started at 9am my time! I was kind of happy to find out the both McLaren’s have lost 5 positions each for impending other drivers ending in eighth and ninth position instead third and forth. At the pole position was Massa, second after him was Räikkönen and third was Trulli with Toyota!

Watching what were all the drivers doing to try to cool themselves from the Malaysian heat was quite interesting… few putting cold water in their shirts, and another holding bag of ice on his head!

Seems Kimi has been giving some comments about him not being happy about his tyres! But I did hope they won’t be giving him a problem!

The temperature was 30 degrees Celsius and the track was 44 but knowing it most probably will be rising!

56 laps on a 5.543 km circuit giving the race a distance of 310.408 km… the lap record has been held by JP Montoya which was 1:34.223 in 2004.

Hamilton, Coulthard, Sutil and Nakajima were best starters… Räikkönen tried to take over Massa, but Massa cut him of on the take off!

Lap3; Rosberg seems having a problem after hitting Glock and got in pit early. And Glock was out of the race!

Still at lap 3 as I think Alonso’s car is bit heavy he was having hard time to take over Coulthard… ending up in a beautiful seen with three cars Alonso, Coulthard and Heidfeld ending up with Heidfeld taking both over then in few second Alonso has passed Coulthard at last!

Lap 6; Sutil runs off the grass and was out and the yellow flag is showed again.

Lap 9; Kimi Räikkönen holds the fastest lap… and going faster showing even faster than Massa… my hopes were getting higher! 😛

By lap 10 seems Vettel was going to get out of the race, and Hamilton fighting hard driving fast trying to get to Webber… and Massa takes the fastest lap away from Räikkönen.

Lap 11; Vettel picked up his pace again and Nakajima is has been giving a great show by passing every one and having piquet as his next target for the 12th position…

Lap 14; Kimi takes back the fastest lap, Fisichella was closing at Barrichello to fight for 15th position, and Hamilton was so close to Webber and seemed he’ll take him over any second!

Lap 16; both Ferraris lapped Rosberg.

Lap 17 pitting started… Massa in the pit, Kovalainen follows Trulli and Heidfeld too. When Kimi Räikkönen gets the lap record even harder to beat.

Lap 18; Kimi pits and get out right in front of Massa!!! Now I was almost jumping from joy! 😀

Lap 19 Kubica was leading, and Hamilton pits… and looses a lot of time by having almost 20 seconds in ending out in the track with 11th position!

Lap 21; most has pit but few more to go… Kubica leads, Kovalainen gets out of the pit to take 7th position and seems Kubica is going in the pit on lap 22 and so it seemed for Alonso from 4th position!

Lap 26; seems Hamilton is suffering… he was having very poor laps one after another, as he can’t pass Webber, and at the same time Heidfeld was closing up slowly from the back, while Kimi Räikkönen was flying through the laps to increase the gap between him and his team mate Massa…

Lap 31; I was almost having a heart attack but ended up just being bit sad when I was a Ferrari spun off and got stuck… it was Massa… but I was still glad it wasn’t Räikkönen. And it seemed to be an engine problem so that what worried me about Räikkönen’s car…

Lap 37; Kimi gets the fastest lap again, and keeps an amazing speed.

Lap 38; and Ferrari stops for the last pit. Gets out with softer tyre and get out taking second position behind Kubica.

Lap 41 cars pitting, but we saw smoke and a small flame from the rear of Vettel’s Toro Rosso and he is out…

Lap 43; Kubica pits and Räikkönen is 1st position again! And Kubica gets out to the track to take 3rd position.

Lap 45; Hamilton pits from 4th and spend almost 9 seconds in the pit… that was another long pit for the English… Kovalainen pits right after and gets out taking his 3rd position.

Lap 48; showed that Räikkönen was safe with the first position and Kubica on second… but the fight was between Trulli and Kovalainen for 3rd and on the other hand between Hamilton and Trulli for the 4th… but the closest battle for points was between Webber and Alonso for the 7th position.

Final lap; Räikkönen pass this finish line as first, Kubica behind him, Kovalainen 3rd and Hamilton couldn’t pass Trulli even after all the hard fight ending up 5th. And Heidfeld finishing 6th but taking a fastest lap with him for the day! 🙂

First F1 race of the season! The qualification was very fun to watch! But the race was getting me nervous! I couldn’t even sleep in my room! I slept on the couch dreaming of F1 like whole night! 😛

So sadly Kimi Räikkönen got a car problem in the qualification and lost the chance of pole position! He ended up 16th, but as Glock lost 10 positions so Kimi ended up 15.

Glock lost the 10 positions because of 2 penalties, one was the unscheduled gearbox change, and the other was impeding another driver during the qualification! So it was 5 positions for each penalty!

Räikkönen showed a beautiful start… he got away from all the horrible mess happened in the back and ended up jumping 7 positions! While Massa was got by the mess and got car problems and had to pit…

Lap 5 Hamilton is still in the lead after him Kubica in 2nd Kovalainen in 3rd Rosberg in 4th Heidfeld in Trulli 6th Barrichello 7th Räikkönen 8th Coulthard 9th Alonso 10th! And Massa has stayed in the back with the 17th position!

Lap 19 at last Kimi Räikkönen get to pass Barrichello that was pushing him back to get 6th position! In a beautiful soft corner! 🙂

By the 25th lap the two Finns were fighting for the second position… Kovalainen trying to keep Räikkönen in the back so Hamilton can get his way and have a bigger gap!

Lap 26 Massa into the side of Coulthard as he tried to take the 10th position! Coulthard car breaks and the safety car was sent out.

Lap 30 Kimi Räikkönen gets to pass Kovalainen at last just to run of f road and need to pit right after…

Lap 33… 11 drivers are out! Fisichella, Vettel, Davidson, button, Webber, Sutil, Trulli, Coulthard, Massa, piquet and Sato!

Lap 45… Glock pushes harder after Räikkönen almost took him over! And as a result he lost his control and had a big crash and the safety car was out again, and Kimi is 10th!

Lap 46 every one gets in pit and Barrichello ends up pulling one of the guys who fills the car with the fuel! It wasn’t his fault as the lollypop was taken off before the man was fully away from the car!

By lap 50, Barrichello had 10 second penalty because left the pit on a red light to get out last at 8th position!!! Yes almost every one will be getting points today! There are only 9 drivers left on the track!!!

Lap 52, Räikkönen’s car sounding strange! Seems a problem with the exhaust.

Lap 55 Räikkönen’s car gives up, and he retires! 😦

Lap 56 Bourdais retires!

Lap 58 Hamilton finish first, Heidfeld second and first time for Rosberg to be in the top 3!

7 cars finished the race every one got points! Such a messed up race… personally I enjoyed it even though Räikkönen got out… I think the cars are more difficult to control this season and it’ll be a season full of action and huge crashes!

One new team… Force India…with a Ferrari engine… let’s see what it does! 🙂


Three drivers might need introduction…


The Brazilian Nelsinho Piquet or as some call him Nelson Piquet Junior. He is the son of the great former F1 driver Nelson Piquet! Now he will be driving next to Alonso in Renault… All I’m hoping for is for him to be better than Alonso so I could see Alonso angry and upset again! 😛 I know it’s kind of evil but I can’t help disliking Alonso! 😛 any way I do hope he would do a great job and give even a better name to his dad’s! 😀


Timo Glock the German driver! He drove 2 races for Jordan-Ford in 2004… he got out with his first ever 2 points on F1 racing, but didn’t continue the year after till now… hopefully he got better training and is here to give us a good race!


French guy Sebastien Bourdais is the last one… he is totally new for me… I read some stuff about him and did find out he has been driving for Formula 3000, F3, Champ Car World Series, Grand Prix of Endurance, and few more… Seems as good driver… Hope he just adds action to the race! 🙂
