The fisherman

I have received an email yesterday from a kuwaiti youth who are interested in film-making and cinema. They made this trailer for our readers to judge. It's a story about a father's journey to find his kidnapped son. My personal thoughts of the trailer is that what they did is a good start for a kuwaiti youth to publish these kinds of movies. It needs better graphics and acting and with this kind of story you will need a bigger cast. I found the trailer very appealing and will definitely look forward to your work. I am very proud of what kuwaiti youth is publishing and I totally support you. Keep up the good work and we wish you the best of luck.

Sheep on the Run

Imagine driving in the street, suddenly you see a running sheep escaping from his owner, thats what happened to my cousin and I'm very happy that he took a picture of the sheep while escaping from his owner. It's really funny since it is Eid and the sheep look like it knows what will happen next.

The picture was taken in Demashq Street.

Thanks Saud

Happy Eid



Kuwait Black Market's team wish you a happy eid and a wonderful vacation full of joy and happiness .. "Eidkom Mubarak o Taqabal Allah Ta'atkom"

IMAX Movies for Eid

The Scientific Center of Kuwait will have two new movies on first day of Eid for their IMAX screen, T-Rex 3D and Bugs 3D. For more information and movies schedule please click here.

To watch the trailers click here.

Marks & Spencer's Chocolate Stirrers

Marks & Spencer brought two kinds of chocolate stirrers or what we can call them chocolate lollipops; dark chocolate with mint and Belgian chocolate. They also added how you can have the best taste out of these chocolate stirrers. For example, it says "perfect for hot drinks" on the Belgian chocolate bag and "Perfect for after dinner coffee" on the dark chocolate mint bag.

The cost of each bag is 1.500 KD

Getting Warm

Since it's getting a little cold lately here in Kuwait I have brought out my best weapon to keep me warm. My favorite thing to wear during cold days is what I call my Big&Warm shoes I have bought from dubai. I don't know where you can find these things in Kuwait but it's a wonderful thing to have at this time and for the upcoming cold days.

Eid Movies

Alright so the movies during eid this time look pretty good, atleast it does for girls since they'll be showing the most talked about movie of the year The Twilight Saga New Moon. From what I've seen from the trailer I think the movie will be a more action sequence than the first one, hard luck girls. But I still might be wrong so I guess we'll have to watch it and find out ourselves.
Other Eid movies are as following:
Ma3toog in Bangkok
Walad Elam

Using Crocs in Kuwait

Crocs shoes has been a huge hit here in Kuwait lately. I've seen a lot of people wearing them wether they're going to the mall, supermarket, college or even at a wedding! Yes, the Crocs might be comfortable at times but it just doesn't fit with what you wear or where you want to go for example it just seems very wrong to wear a dishdasha while wearing a green crocs. You also simply cannot be wearing a crocs shoes while being at a wedding that's just wrong! People have been wearing the crocs so much that they simply wear them to every single place.

Wagamama Now Opens in 360

The most famous award winning Asian/British restaurant, "Wagamama", is now opened in 360 mall, 2nd floor near Inter-Sport. I saw Wagamama in two different countries, London (where it came from) and Dubai .. but I didn't have the chance to try it yet. Since they've opened their store here in Kuwait I guess it's time to try this restaurant.

Any recommendation ?

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham

While I was at the roof top of my house I found a dusty video tape with no title on it. I was curious to see what it was and when I played it I found out that it is one of my best indian movies ever! Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham which means in english "Sometimes Happiness, Sometimes Sadness" is a truly magnificent movie that you will never get bored from watching it. As I played the movie, 3 hours have passed by so quick that I had to rewind it and watch some of my best scenes again. For all of you people who haven't seen the movie yet well I invite you to watch a wonderful movie that shines from the start till the end.

Zenvo ST1

We all know that car companies give you a choice to choose if you want a turbocharger or a supercharger in your supercar. Guess what .. Denmark's first supercar "Zenvo ST1" has them booth in one engine. Just imagine that beneath your car's hood is a 1,104bhp of supercharged, turbocharged 7.0 litre V8 engine .. Smoking !

They're going to build only 15 car, so don't except it to be cheap ..

The exterior looks like a Maserati GT and Audi R8, but who cares about the look if you have that engine !

Maxtrax

I guess the weather in Kuwait is becoming more suitable to camp in the desert and we all know what we really love about going to desert .. exploring off the beaten track !
But sometimes it ends up were your car get stuck in the sand and you have to call your friends to pull out the car.

Maxtrax have the solution for this issue, just grab your Maxtrax, slide it beneath the tires and your car will move immediately.

The pair cost around 78 KD which is good. If you really want to explore the desert without having a thought that you may need help when your car stops moving, I recommend you to order Maxtrax it's very useful and simple to use.

Cat Under Car Hood

Did your car ever MEAW to you? Well, this happened today to my friend before leaving home. Before starting the engine he heard his car meawing, so after searching for the sound and lifting the car hood he finally found that small poor kitten stuck inside the engine of the car. I guess this is the result of the cool weather we are having lately in Kuwait that made the cat go inside the car just to be warm. Luckily, they managed to take her out safely without harming her.

Thanks Az

Review : Scholtzsky's

I felt like trying something new tonight and I'm glad that I did actually. When you read the name you'll reply it like 5 times until you pronounce it in the right way, I guess thats why they add this phrase "Funny Name - Serious Sandwich" to their logo. Anyway, I ordered "Chicken Breast" light sandwich with chips, cookies and Coke from "Scholtzsky's". The sandwich was extremely delicious and the secret behind this amazing taste is their toasted sourdough bread.

On the other hand, I hated their cookies .. I thought it was chocolate in those cookies but it appears that they're using raisins instead of chocolate which I really hate.

Am I going to order from them again ? .. definitely yes ! Specially the chicken breast, and of course no cookies this time ..

FCBarcelona in Kuwait !

For me, it's a dream coming true since I'm a huge fan of FCBarcelona. Barcelona's official site just announced that they will play a friendly match in Kuwait against Kathma Club on December 21, but the sad news is that "Messi - Ineista - Xavi - Henry - Ibrahimovic" will not play this match because they'll be attending FIFA's Awards Ceremony 2009 at the same day.

See-Through Bathroom

My friend recently went to the crown plaza festival city hotel in Dubai. The whole bathroom was see-through. Is this supposed to be sexy for a married couple? and what if bachelors checked in to that room. This is too weird.

Lofat's Lettuce Wrap

Since I'm sick and I can't eat food that includes lots of fat, I ordered grilled chicken lettuce wrap from Lofat. I really can't describe how much I love their sauce, it's unbelievably delicious and mouth watery!
Imagine grilled chicken breast, light cheddar cheese, onions, special lofat sauce wrapped in a crisp fresh lettuce.

I ordered also creamless creamed spinach but it wasn't good enough compared to the lettuce wrap.

If you're in a diet and want to try something really worth it with low carbs, I recommend you to try the grilled chicken lettuce wrap.
