A new guest writer who wished to remain anonymous is writing her first movie review for us at somecontrast. Personally i find her takes and opinions on movies very good and on point. We hope you find this review helpful. Here it goes:

Eat Pray Love (2010)

Director: Ryan Murphy.

Writers: Ryan Murphy & Jennifer Salt based on the autobiographical book by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Cast: Julia Roberts, James Franco, Javier Bardem.

Rating: PG 13


Elizabeth (Julia Roberts), a travel writer, unhappy with her marriage and life decides to divorce and take a year off to travel to Italy, India and Bali and hopefully “find herself” and rekindle her passion for life.


Although i haven’t read the book this movie is based on, i was familiar with the story. I’ll be frank and say that the plot is cliche; hero finds love and happiness abroad. The movie starts slow but picks up the pace when Elizabeth goes to Italy. Now I might be prejudiced since I love everything Italian but this is my favorite part of the whole movie. The scenes were love letters to Italian food and made me crave spaghetti and pizza and wish I was in Rome right now. By contrast, the India segment is loud and stereotypical and although it was supposed to be spiritual it didn’t feel so to me at all. Next,Elizabeth goes to Bali where she finds love with Felipe as well as hippies and medicine men.

I must say that unfortunately Julia Roberts was not her usual charming self and was not looking her best. And although they are both great actors, there was no chemistry between Julia and Javier and I wasn’t touched by the characters love affair.

Another issue was the censorship by the ministry, which unfortunately affected the movie and made no sense since the movie is rated PG 13.


I totally enjoyed seeing a movie in the VIP section of the 360 cinema hall. The seat was so comfortable and the audience were quiet but best of all is that no one was kicking the back of my seat.

Bottom Line:

If you love Julia Roberts and travel movies, then walk to the cinema but don’t run.


But for women only.

Thanks HNM

We were invited yesterday to a Zain media event. The event was held at Sahara Golf & Country Club (Check post), and was basically a media gathering, where all of the newspapers, Kuwaiti tv stations, and some bloggers, were invited.

The event was light and quick. Me & Yousef arrived at Sahara at 7:30pm, we went in, chose a table and sat. It didn’t take long before TV presenter Iman Najim kicked off the event. Followed by a speech from Zain Group CEO, Mr. Nabeel bin Salama.

We were given 2 little coupons with numbers on them, and right after Group CEO’s speach, we were asked to take them out and prepare for the draw. Many valuable gifts we’re presented to lucky (ugh) winners. Tickets to london, tickets for any destination in the world, and many new Blackberries. Me & Yousef enjoyed clapping for each one of the 8 winners.

Some of the big people at Zain were at the event:

Nabeel bin Salama, Zain Group CEO.
Khalid Al Omar, Kuwait CEO.
Waleed AlKhashti, CCR Manager.
Abdullah AlJad3an, CCR Director.

We took many pictures of the event. Take a look.


It will be held on 20th of October. Let’s hope there is something about a new Macbook Air in it, I really need to update mine.




For those of you interested if on plane internet connection, you can check in advance here if it’s equipped with wifi or not.


Remember this? Its the limited edition 1KD that was issued for the second anniversary of Kuwait’s liberation on 1993. Its almost 20 years for this 1KD. It was a gift from my grand mother (RIP). For more pictures click below.

Just got an email from Aramex saying they’ve changed their working hours to 8:30 am to 9:00 pm, in one go. I like the new flexibility in schedule. Good move Aramex!

UPDATE: It seems they got the same timing but now they made Friday off for them.
