The new restaurant Pizzetta is finally open, but from 1pm to 5pm only, it’s kind of a soft opening until they have all their papers ready to officially launch the restaurant.

It’s on the same strip where Prime & Toast and Sliders Station are located, opposite the Seif Palace.


This has got to be the coolest way to get rid of your old iPhone. Now all I need is an old iPhone and a big weird ‘death ray’ lens!

How about we do some experiment with your new one, Hamad?


This is one of the most horrific things I’ve seen. The earth suddenly just dropped and swallowed a whole 3 story clothing factory and a house.

“A sinkhole is a natural depression caused by the removal of underground soil by water. Usually, it happens when the substrate is formed by limestone, carbonate rock, salt beds or any other rock that is easily eroded by water streams. The process could be slow, but sometimes the land just cracks open without notice. In this case, it happened suddenly, swallowing an entire house. The cause: Massive underground water torrents created by tropical storm Agatha.”

What do you see in this picture? I saw a lake at first!

A lady was looking to rent her house, so she took this picture for the potential renters, and they were excited to see a lake infront of the house, but to their disappointment, the lady contacted and told them: “unfortunately that is not a lake, it is a wall“

The iPhone 4 just arrived in Kuwait from X-Cite, the big question now is how much they are willing to sell it for? I’m thinking the price will be KD300 & KD350 for the 16GB & 32 GB respectively.

Thanks INM


Jimmy Kimmel’s show ran through some technical difficulties when a power outage knocked out the show’s control room, broadcast transmission center and tape operations. Jimmy found himself left with no cameras to record, but somehow managed to sidestep his problem by recording the entire show using his Macbook’s camera and the photo booth software.

Creativity at it’s best!


His name is Hikakin, a young Japanese guy who used both his mouth and nose to perform a melody of Super Mario Bros. I think it’s outstanding.

Thanks Ahmad


Incident: Lady Gaga was drunk at the Yankees stadium during a game, she wore bras and bikini bottom, yelled profanities and gave everybody the finger. She was mad that her front raw seat was too close to the photographers covering the game. She went away for a bit and then was upgraded to the empty luxury box owned by Seinfeld. He had this to say about Lady Gaga:

“This woman is a jerk. I hate her. I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for.

You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?

I wish her the best. You take one ‘A’ off of that and you’ve got gag.

I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers. I’m older, I’m 56. I look at Lady Gaga the way Keith Hernandez watches these kids when they pull the pocket out, they wear the inside-out pocket. … Do you think he understands that? He can’t understand that. That’s a new game, that’s kids.

I’m not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure — you could die of exposure.

She is talented, I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff.

Oh please, wake me when it’s over.”

“You’ve had enough of her?” Somers asked.

“Yeah,” Seinfeld said.



Yes, they’ve canceled it! without any introduction. They turned my credit card down coz it’s a French based credit card (I ordered from Apple France) so I changed it to a French based one and guess what? I was just sent an email telling me that my order was canceled due to multiple changes in the credit cards.

Here is the thing, I need an officially unlocked iPhone 4 at reasonable price. Anyone?


My friend owns a Sushi restaurant called OiShii Sushi, and they came up with a new addition to the Kuwaiti Sushi scene, The Sushi burger (pictured above), which wasn’t available in Kuwait until they included it in the menu. They made a big deal about it and most blogs wrote about the new sushi burger.

My friend was disappointed and surprised that a new restaurant would use that same idea just months after Oishii announced their sushi burger. He knows that it wasn’t an original idea, but he also knows that no one thought of having sushi burgers in Kuwait until they introduced it in there menu.

I can’t help but think of this saying “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” It means you’re good enough to have imitators!

I haven’t tried Oishii Sushi yet but I will soon. I’ve been hearing very good things about it from mutual friends.

Its really amazing.


Melenzane means eggplants in italian, and is also the name of the new italian restaurants that has recently opened in Kuwait in Albidaa area. I was told that one of owners cooked, and he cooks regularly at the Melanzane. Always a nice sign to have an restaurant owner who cooks at his place.

We went there today at 5pm for lunch. The interiors have an under-construction/industrial feel, with most of the furniture turned upside down (tables on the ceiling, drawers that open upside-down) basically, it had cool interiors. Also the place is tiny and cozy which made us feel like we’re in for a treat.

I had high hopes for the food because the restaurant gave that kind of an impression.. However, when it was time to dig in, the food turned out shockingly bland.

We had the following Click for the rest of the pictures and review


Before exiting the mall my friend and I were craving some frozen yogurt. It’s weird, I tried Pinkberry only once, and I didn’t find it that appealing, yet I can’t help but crave it most of the time. Anyway, my friend went for Pinkberry and I went for Ansam’s yogurt at Napkit.

Her choice of having watermelon flavored yogurt with pomegranates and rose water was intriguing. I thought I wouldn’t like it. I ended up loving it!

The tiny cup was bursting with flavors. The yogurt was very sweet and the pomegranates were fresh. The rose water, my only worry, worked well in that mix. I thought it was a nice twist. The whole thing was so sweet and very refreshing. Don’t miss it.

Good job Ansam!




Remember when Yousef wrote about it six months back, Well someone just sent me these pictures (Below you will find 30+ pictures) about Dubai’s latest Hotel, the Armani Hotel. Its in Burj Khalifa near Dubai mall. Its an amazing hotel but once you know the rooms prices you will be shocked. It start at KD222 for Armani Studio, up to KD715, and it’ll cost you a bit more once you add the taxes. For more pictures click below.
