11 Signs You Grew Up in Kuwait

There’s something distinct about growing up in Kuwait that separates it from other GCC countries. If you’ve ever lived there, you’ll likely feel nostalgic as we take you down memory lane! 

1. Your childhood consisted of these treats

All your money of your younger years was spent on these.

2. You spent a lot of time watching TV

Spacetoon, KTV2 and MBC3 were your best friends!

3. Getting these mini-fireworks was your absolute favourite thing!

 Basically fun in a box.

4. Marina was “the” spot to be

You can plan all you want, but you always ended up in marina.

5. You used these as if they were Panadol

We all wanted to feel more like adults...
