NBK

Does anybody keep these t.shirts anymore?
I found it in our closet last summer and thought how the hell did this survive the war (ghazou) when my toys didnt for example!!
I decided to bring it to here (UK) and wear it indoors only for obvious reasons :P
Anyway i think its such a cute t.shirt.. not only is dark blue my favourite color (clothes wise), but also i think this logo is just so cool.. when i was a kid, this logo was part of my life.
I mean just look at that pretty happy camel :D

It reminded me of this song : "kan fee bint izgheeri te7lam inno yseer, 3anda sarwi kbeeri ow mal kteer kteer (btw why was it lebanese?) sarit tejma3 tejma3 be6aree'e 7ilwi, fee 7assalit tawfeer 7asalit il jamal..
yom kibrit shwayyi, ra7at 3asob7eye, 7ata tefta7 7saaab bank il kuwait il watani..
HALA HALA ZAINA be7sab il tawfeer.."

Mark, it was much much nicer wasn't it.. it was all what NBK was about infact

Sarah :D u have put a BIG smile on my face girl. u know the words well good :)

Georyhthm, i really would not know if it was before or after the war this t.shirt specifically. ITS A HYPOTHESIS I GUESS..
Point is, its so old that its colors are fading now..
The logo was the same before the war too :)



Purg, maybe next time then ;)

Hey Rah :)
Frankly, this t.shirt was not worn by anyone before LOL. and i can almost swear that my family did not know it existed.
It was a promotion from the bank along with maaaaaaany other stuff like pens and diaries (which i love) and little money box's .. etc
The reason i am keeping it though is because it holds the sweetest memories of my childhood.


I dont think anybody wears promotional t.shirts back home unless they were forced by their companies.

thanks for adding me on side-pane.

You guys are bad, now the song is stuck in my mind ;P

I luv the Tshirt ;P In kuwait Unfortunately if you wear this kind of Tshirts in public people will stare. I even got stared at for wearing my university T-shirt/sweater.
