Wave – Issue 32
Published March/April 2018
A note from our Managing Editor, Reham Alawadhi:
With summer approaching, we at Khaleejesque have realized we might have had our last outdoor shoot before the fall months draw nearer. Our cover shoot this month took us to Yasmin Farms – a quaint farm full of fresh crop, goats, cows, and ducks, among many more – where we shot cover star Nour Flayhan, who is an artist, illustrator, and storyteller that is illustrating a time before hers.
We came across Omniya this issue, a community organization focused on recycling and waste management who just opened up a recycling plant. Whilst writing about Omniya, we came across some staggering statistics regarding Kuwait and recycling.
Our photoessay, “The Language of Water,” falls perfectly under our maritime theme, with abstract expressionist artist Rana Al-Maghlouth painting stunning seascapes.
Over in the UAE, we have the UAE National Space Programme, which is putting the UAE among the big players as a hub for space exploration.
We also explored two exquisite hotels, in Bahrain and Oman, The Ritz-Carlton and Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa, as well as the newly opened Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural Centre museums in Kuwait.
- Distribution will commence from March 25.
