According to Scope TV, They’ve just said that Zain’s Kuwait has ended up their relation with Bu Rashid service and even today I didn’t received from him any sms.

UPDATE:

Got this from Zain:

Mubarak 3alaikom alshahar, they’ve just announced it.

 





Just found out that my wife bought this Sholl HydraStep slipper which is basically got contains a special moisturising gel which nourishes the skin while you walk .

The gel in the sole of the sandal is infused with gentle natural emollients, vitamin E and a delicate fragrance.

You can order them from HERE for around KD 11.5

 





Remember I was asking for some thing like this idea before? Well now it seems its available but lets see if they allow me to get it as MicroSim or not because it comes with E-Go, Other than that I have to convert it by my self . It seems also its a good offer the eeZee line + E-Go + 1.5 KD in account will cost you 10 KD only.

Thanks Ali

 





Remember my previous post? Well it seems now Saudi has Settled it down and they came to deal which is unknown yet, but the service is back now and its fully functional.

Yes this is what do you call it creative person, out of the 16 pictures she draw a heart shape.

 





The above interview was with a guy whose sister was assaulted and almost raped by an intruder. A serious matter. Now, some very creative people managed to turn that serious interview into an instant internet hit by editing and auto-tuning the clip. Must watch!

I saw this steak at sultan center last weekend and I was thinking of buying one. The box contains only 1 steak each steak is priced at KD8.5. The price and the packaging were tempting.. Has anyone tried them before?

I’m craving a great home grilled steak!

 





The result will be …. JUNK

When Singore Sassi first opened in Kuwait we loved it. I even praised it in one of my reviews. It was a great new italian restaurant on the Kuwaiti scene. Unfortunately, as is the case with every Americana owned restaurant, quality control and food’s quality overall isn’t one of their concerns, and they let this amazing italian restaurant spiral down as the days went by.

It’s a shame in my opinion. I’ve been giving it a lot of chances, 3 chances actually in the past 2 months and it has failed to serve a decent meal in all of the last 3 visits. Today, we had it with the place, the last straw as they say, we’re done and aren’t going back there.

  1. It was with the risotto fungi which is a dish we used to enjoy at Sassi’s. Today it tasted like it was something off a magi ready made mix.
  2. It was with one of Sassi’s special dishes, the grilled sole fillet. It tasted weird. I don’t know how to describe it, but you know how a tea-soaked biscuit comes a part when lifted? it was like that. It wasn’t fresh.
  3. I left a comment card and the manager called me as we were leaving the parking area. In his apology speech he mentioned that the sole was indeed not-so-fresh, as they’ve changed their source and their attempts to get fresh fish all failed. They’re planning to take it off the menu because of the complaints and the ‘unfreshness’ issue. They had me order eat and pay for this unworthy dish that they all knew had to be taken off the menu.

The 3 points above were only regarding today’s visit. I think 3 chances, hoping that things would turn around, are more than enough. Evidently they don’t care enough to maintain a certain standard when it comes to food quality, and they probably think we have tongues made out of rubber and can’t tell the difference between good food and bad food.

What a shame.

It seems that Vimto’s management here in Kuwait liked Apple’s latest policy with the iPhone that its not allowed to buy more than 2 iPhone/person .. Yes since we’re close to Ramadan they allow buying only two bottles per person of Vimto here in any Co-Op.

 





Since most of time my work need from me to be in the field and facing these high temperature now a days, Just noticed one of my friends was wearing this cooling headband and he’s wearing it around his neck, So I’ve asked him whats the purpose of wearing it? The answer was really interesting, its simply remains hydrated for more than 8 – 10 hrs after you soak it in water for just 10 – 15 mins.

We got a message from Fahad² saying Fatburger is now open, and that they’re serving everything free of charge. My friends and I wanted to try it out, but we hesitated thinking it’d be packed since it’s their first day and that everything was free. We worried we’d find a huge line and end up wasting the rest of the day waiting. We ended up going there anyway. There was no line and the place was about 50% full.

This is my first time at Fatburger. I didn’t know what I was supposed to do, sit at a table and wait for the waiter? Go and order from the counter? I wasn’t sure, so I let my friend lead the way, and he led us to the counter. We ordered and waited at the table.

The waiters were extremely welcoming and enthusiastic, which was fun. Even when they yelled our orders as we were heading to the table. They do that, they get your order and yell it out to the rest of the team, and then all the team yell it right back. It was kinda awkward coz I ordered the double fatburger and everybody got to know about it. But then again they yelled everyone’s order.. many people got the double fatburger, which made me less self conscious 😛

Anyway, here is the deal. I don’t want to sound harsh. I seriously don’t. But I found the burger.. OK. The burger was nice, the bun was cold, the relish stood out with the mustard, and the mayo was bland. It overall didn’t meet my expectations. It’s better than Fudds’s, better than most places with burgers, but doesn’t come close to Johnny’s. Thats what I thought. Don’t get me wrong, I’d go there again, I enjoyed it, didn’t fall in love with it though.. I thought it was a nice juicy burger.

The fries was ok, too. I’d wait for the chili cheese fries since it was marked ‘coming soon’ on the menu. Oh, and there was a little problem mistake with the burgers, some were over seasoned, and turned out salty, and some were under-seasoned and lacked salt. Considering they’re still pretty new and have just opened, mistakes like these shouldn’t take long to be corrected and mastered.

The highlight was the Vanilla Milkshake. It rocked. Took me by surprise actually. I loved it and thought it was worth driving to Mahboola even if you weren’t in the mood for burgers.

We had a little chat with the owner, Mr. Nawaf, who was extremely nice and polite even when we criticised some of the things we ate. He explained that their Vanilla shake is made from a Kuwait made vanilla icecream. The icecream is brought over from 360’s Life with Cacao (same owners). Which really made sense to me, since I’ve had their vanilla icecream when I went there, and I completely and utterly loved it. I kept praising and recommending it to whoever is going there, coz it was perfect. Actually I was surprised that such an amazing icecream was made in Kuwait. You have to try it. Hat’s off to you guys for this amazing recipe.

To wrap things up, their burger is good, many of you will love it, I’ve had better in Kuwait, but overall it was a nice change.

Fatburger is now open everyday from 5pm to midnight. They’re located in Mahboola at Spoons food mall.

Just noticed that they’ve changed most of them to Mushrif. I think the old spelling was much better.
