What a fantastic blog title... "Spend like a King." I'm glad you popped into my Kuwait Photo Blog to comment or else I'd have missed out on your blog. Superb idea for a blog too.

There are many who have boats and yatchs in Kuwait (The Kuwaities, I mean.) We Indians end up just clicking them, which is why I can really empathise with Mihir. Lol!
