After a tense and bitter campaign, Obama rolled to reelection Tuesday night, winning a new chance to repair the nation’s economy and fulfill the promises of hope and change he made four years ago. Obama is the 44th president of the United States and first African American to hold such a position.

Too much hype recently going on regarding the opening of Avenues Phase 3 which will be tomorrow morning at 10am. The new phase is going to be huge in space and retails outlets brought in. Reviewing few blogs about the opening was really impressing to see the brands that Al Shayea is bringing to Kuwait. Apparently no need to shop outside Kuwait when everything is here. Some of the major stores opening are Harvey Nichols, COS, PINK, JO Malone, Cheesecake factory, Red Lobster…and much more. I think I will be able to go next week only just to avoid the massive crowd that will invade the new avenues.
