One of the main reasons why I love doing what I do is the fact that I get exposed to people from all walks of life.
The graceful and highly talented Ms.Dana Al-Otaibi is a breath of fresh air. Sits on the throne of PINK COFFEE marketing and PR company as a partner and operational manager, only 23 years young.
I met her twice, I remember one day when I went to their head office she held the iPad (back when it first came out) and was so proud of it, she and Shamlan gave me a semi-walk through on the intricate and different levels of sophistication the iPad had. I remember how nice and kind she was to me. She even gave me the iPad to try which pissed Shamlan off, HAH! I love them both, dearly.
Honestly though, for DANA to be involved in programs like The Proteges, Mtubtub and everything else PINK COFFEE does is a form of beauty. Why do I say that ? Because I sincerely believe that camps that raise awareness, entrepreneurship, health, well being and a BIG chunk of value back to the country do not succeed unless people running it are Philanthropists. To me, thats the highest form of beauty ever in existence. Then again you’ll explore her different talents as you read on. Not to mention she owns sole copyrights to a smile that heals all.
I hope her presence here will help nagging men and women who doubt our youth, stating through sharp, cutting edge facts, that those who can help, inspire, be there and uplift us with their energy, physically EXIST. Miss Knowles was never wrong with her latest effort “Girls Who Run The World” Women and young ladies like Dana are definitely a main inspiration.
I love the direction of Pink Coffee and will always be one of the main supporters if they allow me. One look at that mashed up piece of art you have up there says everything.
Dana is part of this creation.
Get to know her more …

Friday is an overall blessing for us all. This friday has an extra blessing/feel to it, one of the society’s sweethearts is gracing the front page of p0ach.com
I met him back in 2007 when we were in an Injaz volunteer program, we met for a very short period, we didnt talk much cuz we were in a meeting and everyone was throwing down what they have in mind into the table, yet, I knew he was a very kind and smart person. Oh and *cough* back off *cough* this one is married *cough* yes ? *snap*
You’v all seen him in each and every news article associated to only the best events and causes out there. Its really simple, you do the math, with over nine years experience in business, five of which in marketing communications, Shamlan is a marketing professional with a solid 360-degree all around marketing experience covering corporate communications, sales-tasked and brand marketing, consumer public relations, alternative and social marketing, and sell-side and buy-side media sales.
What are we talking about ? a genius, a humble genius I may add.
Let me pave way for the interview.

Net Worth: 1.8 Billion.
Chairman of National Bank of Kuwait, the country’s oldest public company and one of the most consistent performers among region’s banks.
Also involved in industry: Al-Bahar’s eponymous construction group is the regional distributor for Caterpillar heavy construction equipment, which is in high demand in the Gulf.
Part of FORBES billionaires list.
He is well known for his humanitarian efforts also.
Here is what the people at HILALIYA had to say, (Highly respected blog) :
“Mohamed Abdulrahman Al-Bahar is a humble, low-key family man who literally built his fortune from scratch.
In contrast to others of his league, he is righteous and decent enough not to use his financial empire to monopolize or impede others from achieving commercial success. He made his fortune and is happy to let others do the same – this is an unusual trait in the modern Kuwaiti businessman.
He is one of the most transparent, and overall most decent businessmen in the Gulf, his generosity is always behind the scenes, never meant to attract any attention or exploited for business purposes (unlike the ‘New Tycoons’ in Kuwait).
He is literally one of a kind and represents the dying ‘Old Guard’ – men with principles, wisdom and
generosity who helped build this state.”
THANK YOU GUYS !
