Eureka is selling Tvs and other stuff that compatable with skype, I thought you can’t get any tool that deal with skype here in Kuwait since skype.com is blocked.

Thanks 9K2HN

 





On our way to the chalet on the Eid holiday we passed by Lulu Hyper Market. Lulu’s known for it’s low prices and offers. We usually get our stuff from Co ops and sometimes for Sultan Center (if we’re looking for special stuff), but since the Eid’s holiday is going to be a long one, and we would require need lotsa stuff, We decided that Lulu would be the best place to shop at for it’s low prices (o yokhob).

Aswaq AlQurain isn’t hard to find, you’ll see it on your right if you’re heading south on King Fahad’s highway, it’ll be right across the highway from AlQurain. The building is huge, with many gates and it’s not dedicated entirely to Lulu’s as I spotted one Costa Cafe in there and many small shops that are either opening soon or have recently opened.

The supermarket itself is very big, 3 floors, and we found everything we were looking for, well except for Sara Lee’s Turkey and KDCow’s Milk, but other than that it was nice to shop there.

We filled 4 carts for KD151. You see? It’s a bit cheaper than Co ops, and ofcourse much cheaper than Sultan Center, but ofcourse you won’t find gourmet stuff in there.

You know what was surprising? Their service. Their Service was top notch.

Good news I guess, the traffic-jams-causing schools in Kuwait won’t be back until the 26th of this month, which gives us a whole week and a half of Jams-free mornings.

I feel like I was left outta the loop. This Caramel Log thing is, apparently, a favortie among Kuwaitis (?) How come I didn’t hear about it until like 5 minutes ago? It looks old, tastes old, and has a nice after taste. It crunches like a lion bar and tastes like Bounty.

My collegue says it is best when accompanied with Sunkist.. huh.. gotta try that now.

 





I’m looking for a great pair of noise cancelling headphones, and I’ve read many reviews so far, a lot actually, and all of the reviews recommended the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 over any other headphone when it came to Noise Cancelling. You’d think that would make the deciding process a bit easier, but it didn’t. The Bose QC15 while best at noise cancelling they’re not the best in audio quality.

I went down to XCite and found both the QC15 and Beats by Dr Dre headphones there (Yeah the Beats headphones are in consideration as well, simply coz they’re best when it comes to looks). The employee at Xcite was amazing, he let me try every headphone with an iPod and let me take my time to compare between headphones. I’m almost certain now that the QC15 is what I want the most, coz the noise cancelling is out of this world. One reviewer said it best: “it almost feels as if you’re at the bottom of a pool, almost completely shut off from the sounds above.” –Review. And when I tried it, I was convinced that the review didn’t overstate it’s noise cancelling ability one bit.. I was completely shut out from my surroundings and I couldn’t hear anything but my inhales and exhales.

I don’t know why the sound quality is bothering me though. I haven’t sensed the shortcoming myself, actually I thought they were excellent, but the reviews aren’t agreeing with me.. Other than that, I think they’re perfect.

Any suggestions?

I’m sure some of you aren’t new to this dish, but I gotta say this is by far the best dish at P F Changs! Love at first Bite. It’s creamy, crabby and crispy all at once. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

The next time you’re there you’ve gotta try it, it’s called Crab Wonton, and it tastes much better than it sounds.

Just saw this picture in one of the tweets in Twitter and wondering if anyone of you guys saw this on Al Rai TV, if its true I’m not blaming her but I’m blaming Al Rai TV for Accepting it.

 





Have you ever wondered what would happen if money grew on trees? Well this video gave a glimpse of what would happen. Watching all the passerby’s reactions and the soundtrack somehow set me in very good mood. I loved this experiment!

“Some things just can’t be explained .. There is good all around us”

 





And Friday will be Eid inshalah, Eidkom Mubarak 🙂

Thanks Ali

Update:

Mishary I was just writing about it and you beat me to it 😛

So tomorrow’s the last day of Ramadan which makes our holiday one day LONGER!!! 😀

عسى الله يتقبل صيامكم وصلاتكم وقيامكم وصالح أعمالكم وتعودونه كل سنة بالصحة والعافية

 





I won a free line from Zain recently I wanted to it to be a Microsim, but today I recieved the Simcard but it wasn’t a microsim card and they’ve attached a letter (The one Above) telling me they are out of stock and that I can bring the current the one they sent at any time with the letter to replace it for free.

There must be a lot of iPhone 4s being used in Kuwait.. The last I checked there was over 700 units imported, I bet that number has quadrupled by now.

 





Just got it from them:

يسر وزارة الخارجية، وبمناسبة قرب حلول عيد الفطر المبارك وموسم السفر، أن تعلن لمواطني دولة الكويت عن إطلاقها لخدمات تقنية نوعيّة مجانية وذلك ابتداءً من اليوم الثلاثاء الموافق7/9/2010

وإستجابةً للتطورات التقنية المتسارعة، وإسهاماً منها في التيسير على المسافرين من مواطني دولة الكويت ومراجعي بعثاتها في الخارج وسرعة تواصلهم مع السفارات، وفّرت وزارة الخارجية لمستخدمي أجهزة الـ I Phone ، الـ I Pad و الـ I Pod ميزة الإنزال المجّاني للبرنامج المعنون “Ministry of Foreign Affairs State of Kuwait” عن طريق الـAPP Store للإستفادة من تطبيقاته وخدماته المتعددة التي تُرشد المستخدم إلى البعثة الدبلوماسية المراد الوصول إليها وذلك عن طريق خدمة تحديد الموقع، إضافةً إلى عنوان البعثة الدبلوماسية (سفارة / قنصلية) وساعات دوامها الرسمي وهواتفها وبريدها الإلكتروني

كما إن من شأن البرنامج أن يُؤمِّن استلام مواطني دولة الكويت لآخر الإرشادات الخاصة بالسفر والأخبار والتنويهات الصادرة عن وزارة الخارجية، مما يكفل الإطلاع الفوري على المستجدات والإحاطة المباشرة بها، وذلك في سابقةٍ تُعد الأولى من نوعها على نطاق الخدمات المقدمة من وزارات الخارجية في منطقة الشرق الأوسط.
و تعد النسخة المطروحة نسخة تجريبية حيث يمكن لمستخدميها التواصل مع الوزارة عن طريق البريد الالكتروني “i.mofa@mofa.gov.kw ” في حال وجود اي ملاحاظات و اقتراحات بشان الخدمة.

Thumbs up, a good move by the ministry.

 





I just learned that he’s got one. It’s decent, lots of information in his biography section.. Did you know that Darb Alzalag was the first colored tv production in the gulf? I just did! and that he has many plays (masra7iyat) from the early 60’s that weren’t recorded? How about how he go discovered as a potential comedian by Zaki Tulaimat totally by accident?

I think it’s a great source of information about this great actor. Check it out

Thanks Fawaz

 





We were at P.F. Chang’s the other day and the nice manager over there told us they’ll be opening a new branch in Kuwait soon. It’ll be located right next to the Corniche Club, in the ‘red building’. She told us that the new branch is a big one, 2 levels, and according to her it’ll look amazing.

Opening date: 14th of december 2010.

 





If you’re crazy enough, and interested, this number could be yours today!

Thanks Fawaz

 





The Kuwaiti notes from dinars to twenties, enclosed and presented like checks for Eid elfitir (Real Cash). It would’ve been a hit in my opinion if it wasn’t for the Central Bank of Kuwait rejecting the idea. However I was told that even if this was made available, it would’ve been available to select clients in KFH, VIPs Altamayoz’s clients and such.. I was also told that quite a few people got their hands on these checks/3ayady before they were rejected by the Central Bank.

Update:


^The KD1 notes

Thanks HalfCreamMilk

I just placed my first ever order with Taw9eel, and I’m gonna try OGO water for the first time ever, too. I know it most probably would taste like tap water, but I coulnd’t help it, I was lured in by the image on Taw9eel.com’s pages. I also got 9 Perrier.

I’m thirsty.. Can you tell?

This piece of news cracked me up!

Russell Stuart, 51, was woken when he heard his Peugeot car being revved up on his driveway in the early hours. Mr Stuart ran outside, opened the passenger door and sat beside the thief – not realising he had forgotten to get dressed.

“I said to him, ‘all right mate, where are we going then?‘ And he jumped out of the car and legged it. I don’t know what the guy must have thought when a large naked bloke got into the car next to him, but when your car is being stolen you don’t think about it, you just react.” As soon as the thief saw Stuart, he flung the door open and made a run for it.

Mr Stuart drove around the town looking for the thief but, still naked, gave up after a while in case he got pulled over for indecent exposure.
