Caution: Check Food Supplies Expiry Dates

Lately I've been seeing these billboards near Mishref from the Municipality of Kuwait which say "Caution: Check Food Supplies Expiry Dates before buying transaction".
Shouldn't they be taking care of these things by themselves ? I guess they are probably taking a supply checking break during ramadan.

I also captured a picture of this billboard which warns you from the dairies! They want us to stay away from people who sell dairies from the streets.

Sewage Plant Breaks Down in Mishref !

Flooding in the station causing poisonous gas in the air took place in Mishref yesterday. Three pumps in the station broke down and ten other pumps have been out of service for sometime causing up to 14 meters of waste water. Fadhil Safar, the Minister of Public Works, said that the fault came because of excessive heat.

According to Alwatan newspaper, this incident could damage our sea for almost two months until they fix the problem.

Update : It appears that the ten pumps were not working perfectly from the day they built the station, only three pumps were working until they broke down. This accident may cause the sewages to flood in the near-by areas, also swimming and fishing are forbidden in some parts of the sea because of the waste-water. Link

Kakawie

I ordered from Kakawie last night and I must say that I was fully satisfied. The order arrived on time and the packaging was very neat. I ordered 2 Karamicho which contains caramel and chocolate with biscuits and 1 Mu 9ij which contains chocolate and biscuits. All my order costed me only 3 KD which is very reasonable. I must say the Karamicho was extremely delicious and Mu 9ij was absolutely mouth watering.

As soon as I finished eating them, the first thing that came to my mind was when should I order again. I sent them a message and hopefully they will deliver for me 3 Karamicho in the next day.
There are a lot of other flavors you can choose from, you can check out their Facebook group to have a look at the menu and upcoming news.

To order you can text them at 65941080
Get your order from Kakawie with the most delicious and tasty flavors of chocolate.

Hayon

Hayon is a home business that sells cupcakes, giant cupcakes and cookies. I first discovered those lovely cupcakes at the Food Avenue Exhibition. They have those huge cupcakes which taste very delicious. Yes, the picture above you're looking at is 100% real. I also want to add how friendly and kind the owners are in interacting with their customers.

First time in Kuwait,
Giant cupcake, because you can't have too much of a good thing.
Mini cupcakes just don't make the cut, why eat 7 when you can dive into a giant one?
Of course, if you're feeling kind of generous... you may share
Giant cupcakes are made to order.
You can choose your flavor, topping and icing.
Contact us to place your order.

Jahra Wedding Fire Kills Dozens

Dozens of people were killed late yesterday when a fire broke out in a wedding tent in the Ayoun area of Jahra. Sources said all the victims were women. Rescue efforts were hampered because the burning tent collapsed on the women and the power supply failed. Many of the women were also killed in a stampede that ensued. Twenty fire trucks and dozens of firemen battled the blaze, while the injured were rushed to hospitals.

These are the bodies of the victims after the fire in the ground covered with a blanket tent.

Kuwait PK Jaguars


Parkour or "PK" is a the art of movement that first appeared in France. More similar to a martial art than to a sport, focused on moving from one point to another as smoothly, efficiently and quickly as possible using the abilities of the human body. If you have seen the movie "Yamakasi" you'll know what I'm talking about.

A group of Kuwaiti's managed to team up to create the first Parkour & free running team in Kuwait and the arabian gulf. The video above is an example of the abilities of Parkour Jaguars, they managed to do some of their moves in the Avenues mall. Click here to check out more of their work.

I didn't find the moves interesting however they are still young and the thought of creating a Parkour Team in Kuwait is pretty cool. I wish them the best of luck and a successful parkour future.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

It's been a while since I have bought a new PS3 game. Believe it or not the last game I bought was the most famous kuwaiti game Pro Evolution or as we call it "Al-Dawry Al-Yabany". Anyways, I went through the Play Station website to check out the latest PS3 games and I finally found what I was looking for. Batman: Arkham Asylum caught my attention. It is one of the most awaited games to be released. It will be released August 25 world wide but I bet Al-Rehab can get it before it's official release. Don't ask me how! The demo is already released and it looks beautiful. The thing I love most about the upcoming game is that you can choose whether you want to play as Batman or as The Joker.

Window Washers Rescued From High Building

Two window washers in California have been rescued after dangling from a high-rise building after their work platform tilted. Officials say the metal scaffolding slipped but the workers didn't fall because they were wearing safety harnesses.

I'm afraid of heights and this totally freaked me out! If I were him I would totally quit.

Review: GI JOE

GI JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA was awesome! It had great visual effects, excellent action sequence and fun story line. I got to see a lot of things blow up and some really cool air and ground fights.
*Two thumbs up*

Movie plot:
" From the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the elite G.I. JOE team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos. "

I would rate the movie 9/10

Replace Sunglasses with Vision Contact Lenses

Nowadays, wearing sunglasses is not just a fashionable step; it has become one kind of necessity for the projection of eyes from various harmful factors.
But it can be quite difficult to wear sunglasses when you are playing rough sports like football and soccer. If you do so, glasses can be broken easily if you fall off or if another player crashes onto you. Optimal Vision is a set of concept contact lenses that efficiently offer the functionality of sunglasses.
These lenses are available in four different shades; they are yellow, red, green and gray - each with different features and activities

Little Red Riding Hood & Dicaprio?

I couldn't believe this when I read it on Variety, especially the part about the Gothic twist on the story which makes it pretty intersting and it's making me wonder how would it turn out. I'm really looking forward for this project to happen.
"The best-known version of the story -- in which a wolf disguises himself to fool a girl delivering food to her sick grandmother in the forest -- was published in the 19th century by the Brothers Grimm." (Read More)

If you still didn't try it then I recommend you do right away!

I guess so !

Kuwait Black Market 3D

video
This summer I took an introductory 3D animation course on a program called Maya because it was required by my Multimedia major in GUST. Maya is one of two great 3D animation programs that Designers use in Movies and Video games, the other one is 3DMAX which was Maya's opponent up until Autodesk bought 3DMax to join their company.

To take this course in summer was hard work, even though it's an introductory course but there was alot to learn. I had a Project that required me to create a logo and animate it like they do for TV channels, So I thought why not 3D animate the blogs logo, which Mohammed created and so I did it. I really had alot of fun taking this course and recommend Maya program to anyone who loves designing and/or animation.
