Ini adalah cerita tentang ritual tahunan di Kuwait. Tidak ada yang menggembirakan melebihi Independence Day Liberation Day di Kuwait yang baru akan tiba tanggal 25 dan 26 February 2012 nanti. Apalagi yang ditunggu tunggu warga kalau bukan tambahan penghasilan diluar gaji rutin sebagai karyawan. Seperti tahun tahun yang lalu, hari ini berbagai media, baik koran dan TV sudah membuat berita berita tentang rejeki nomplok yang akan diberikan pemerintah kepada warganya. Arab Times memberitakan kenaikan gaji 35 % dan Kuwait Times memberitakan rejeki nomplok paling sedikit KD 250 untuk Kuwaitis dan KD 50 untuk expatriate (KD 1 = Rp 31.000)
Tinggal tunggu saja, apakah berita ini menjadi kenyataan seperti tahun tahun yang lalu atau ada kejutan yang lebih besar lagi dari Emir Kuwait.
