Doowa is the coal warmer.)
These little tea warmers (coal plates) are traditional in Kuwait. They have been used for years in Mubarakia for warming tea. It was especially comforting in the winter months to go down to the souq and have tea at the end of a meal and have it served on little doowa at the table.
Now, the phucking baladiya (municipality) has made them illegal as they are coal burning and someone might get hurt. They never have before. Why now?
Is every little scrap of Kuwaiti tradition being destroyed by idiots?
I HATE what is happening to this country.
