We went today to the Men Time spa in Almuhallab mall, Me, Mishary and my 2 cousins. We booked an appointment for 4 people almost a week ahead. The spa is much smaller than the spa I reviewed last week (The Day Spa) and a step down in almost every way.

As the topic said, 7asafa walla, it was really good policy. If no one know whats the policy is, then its simply that if you bought something from Amazon and its price on the site dropped within 30 days of your purchase then you could contact them and get a refund for the difference.

Thanks Ahmad

UPDATE:

Here is an email that confirm the above which Mark got when he requested to get a refund on the difference for his camera:

“Hello from Amazon.com.

Thanks for writing to us about the recent price change on “Nikon D90 DX 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S VR DX Nikkor Zoom Lens”. I recognize you have a choice of retailers and appreciate that you prefer to order from us. Unfortunately, we do not have a post-order price guarantee.

I’ve reviewed your order and see that the price change was significant and you just received this item from us. Under the circumstances, I’ll make a one-time exception for you and issue a refund for the price difference in the amount of $46.99.

Please understand that I’m issuing this refund because of the exceptional circumstances, and I’m doing this for you against our standard policy.

WHY DON’T YOU HAVE A PRICE GUARANTEE?

While we don’t always beat the best available price on every product, we do offer deep discounts on many thousands of items. From time to time, prices on some items will change due to special offers from suppliers and manufacturers or our inventory and sales volumes. When we can offer a lower price for new purchases we will, but we cannot extend these discounts to completed orders.

Thanks for shopping at Amazon.com. We look forward to your next visit.

Life Goes On… Drive Carefully

Now my question is: What do you think of this ad. .. Again are you convinced ?

 





This sign was on a small one room building near where we stay in france. For years we’ve been passing by without paying much attention. A couple of years ago Mom started telling me about this guy, who turned to be a great french philosopher. Apparently he stayed in our area when he was young.

I just googled and read about him. He wrote many books. I read that he invented modern autobiographies. I skimmed through his Confessions book and the first thing he wrote was a bit of a turnoff:

“I HAVE begun on a work which is without precedent, whose accomplishment will have no imitator. I propose to set before my fellow-mortals a man in all the truth of nature; and this man shall be myself.”

No imitator, huh? I bet he’s turning in his grave with the debut of every new autobiography and reality show.

Then I read a line that made me laugh:

“I believe no individual of our kind ever possessed less natural vanity than myself.”

I’m sure when this last line is put in it’s context may come off less self-absorbed/conceited, but still I find it hard to accept that someone would say something like that about himself and still think he has low vanity..

I love lattes. I’ve tried all the places in Kuwait with cafe lattes and au laits and I can say with confidence that nothing beats my own homemade latte. Well, its not entirely homemade, I use a nespresso coffee machine. The one and only place that used to make great cafe au laits in Kuwait was Cafe supreme in Alraya, and thats not there anymore. I’ve tried their other branch in Alkoot.. and for some reason I find their lattes bland.

My favorite nespresso capsule at the moment is the Livanto (the orange one). I loved their limited edition capsule too, the pink one, the one they released during the summer… Now why would they release such a good blend that everyone liked and then make it available for a limited amount of time!?

The ‘Great Kuwait Sunset Challenge‘ has been launched a few days ago by our fellow blogger, intlxpatr. If you have good sunset photos and you wanna participate in this challenge, you can do so by sending her an email and she’ll post your pictures and we’re all gonna vote, somehow, and she’ll decide which photographer has the best shots.

I’ve learned that photoshopping an image is considered cheating, and I also learned that I don’t have a single good sunset photo! except the one above, but that is photoshopped to death, so..

I will try and take some pictures of sunsets. You do so too!

For more information on the challenge or if you have a question, go to intlxpatr.

I’ve been wanting a massage for some weeks now. I haven’t had any massages in Kuwait before, but after hearing good things about the day spa I called them up and made an appointment for a swedish massage.

I called them the same day and just 2 hours before the massage time. The swedish massage was recommended by a friend and also happened to be the only one they had for 8 pm. I went home took a bag with some clothes and a camera. I got there 20 minutes early, and I regretted arriving early. I waited by the door, in the street for 20 minutes. I knocked and called them and nothing, no one opened the door and the phone was always busy. Not a good first impression. Even the waitresses at Pomodoro (same owner) came to help and then invited me to stay at their tables which were less than 10 meters away. I didn’t know what I was supposed to do. I’m waiting outside and they’re not returning my calls.. definitely not a good first impression.

20 minutes later a guy opened the door and poked his head outside. I got up and started walking fast toward him. I was angry and wanted to yell at someone. The guy was very apologetic and very very nice.. I couldn’t even stay angry at this stupid incident, which made me feel bad, I wanted to lash out..

The place was dark, and I mean DARK. I couldn’t see where I was stepping at first and had to wait for my eyes to adjust, and when they did.. wow. The place was very well decorated! they did the best they could with the limited space they have. It has this indian, buddhist, cave-like atmosphere, with eastern/indian instrumentals being played in the backgound. Very relaxing. I was escorted to the other room after filling a little form, and that room looked even more exotic. I was seated in one of the chairs (pictured above) and was offered to have a drink while I wait.

The room was dimly lit too. The guy told me I could take a shower now or after the massage or both, it was up to me. The massage lasted a full hour. I enjoyed every second of it. Aside from the incident with the closed door at the beginning, the place was perfect in every way. Full privacy, very clean, and they all were very friendly. I would definitely go back.

The swedish massage costs KD18. My bill was KD22 coz I bought a bottle of their shampoo. It’s located in the Jebla area, near the church and starbucks. Right behind Pomodoro restaurant.

Tel: 2496699
Time: 10am-10pm

PS It’s for Men only. Sorry ladies.

I’ve been listening to this song, changes, from Will Young’s new album for the past couple of days and I can’t seem to get enough of it. I like how the lyrics are light and somewhat sad but then the song comes off happy and uplifting.

Take a listen:

They’re going to release a new e-Go package tomorrow. It’s going to be a prepaid package, no fixed monthly fees and no subscriptions. the e-Go device (shown above) will be sold for KD 40 and then you can charge it by paying either through eezee cards or by going online and pay using your Knet or Credit card. You can choose to pay KD1.5 which equals either 500mb worth of bandwidth or 24 hours internet access.

The network connection speed is still 7.2mb for this new package.

 





I’m sure we’ve all seen Zain’s new backup ads by now with the old man and his old wife. It created quite a stir when they first aired during ramadan.

The ad basically used the old wife character to portray how she (the mobile) can be easily replaced by the old husband with another mobile incase of loss, damage..etc if he subscrib with Zain’s backup service. Most women (and some men) in my family found it offensive. My mother wanted to write a post on this blog and give Zain a piece of her mind. Other female members of my family were also offended and quite shocked by how degrading to women this whole ad campaign was. Other people had mixed reactions. Me and Mishary had our own little debate where one of us thought it is completely and utterly inappropriate to compare mobiles to women (wives) and the other thought they were funny. We even received emails asking us to say something about those ads. Here is an excerpt from an email we got:

“Zain should stop airing them immediately and apologize to all the people who felt offended by the Ads”

I also asked some of my friends and got different responses. Their responses:

  1. I LOVE it! I laugh each time I see them on tv.
  2. They’re hard to get.
  3. Sexist and offensive.
  4. and this has to be the best response and the most intriguing argument I got:

  5. The ads ruffle some insecure feathers. It plays on typical and old stereotypes. Our grandfathers used to think somewhat similarly about women; they’re replaceable. And this what annoyed the Kuwaiti females the most.. It would’ve been offensive if they hired a young couple to do the ad, but they didn’t, they made them old, and that is how (most) old Kuwaiti men used to think about women anyway.

    ma3alaina.. We’ll let you decide for yourselves. Participate in the poll on the right sidebar to answer this question:

    What do you think of the new Zain backup Ads?
