Viva Loves Kuwait Black Market !

Viva was very kind to our blog by giving away their USB modem along with their fastest internet service ( 21.1 Mbps ) for a one year contract for free. What really made me happy is not the gift, it was their astonishing and stunning staff ! .. I was invited to their main branch in front of the Scientific Center of Kuwait and I was treated like one of the family, now I have a brother called Bader and a sister called Hind. Also I met Mr.Najeeb Al-Awadi ( Viva's CEO ), he is the most amazing CEO I had ever met. You guys really made my day and it was an honor to meet each one of you.

About the USB modem and the internet speed, this device is the bomb ! .. I used to download movies and TV shows at a speed of 200 kb/s, now the speed is up to 600 kb/s which is very awesome !

Surfing the net is much smoother now thanks to the new USB modem and internet connection. All I can say is thank you very much Viva for everything, you made this year a very special one.

Alien in Kuwait

I am really disgusted from the way girls are doing their hijabs. I have no idea what's the purpose of this immature behavior. I've seen a lot of alien hijabs but this is way too big! I hope this can end by 2009 and women can start wearing them by the proper way of islam.

Twitter .. Fun or Nonsense ?

Do we really have to tweet about every single movement in our life ? .. In Twitter, people are tweeting every minute about what they had for dinner, what should they wear today, what they're listening to right now and a lot of activities that a guy or a girl can do. So do you have a twitter account ? What do you think about twitter, is it fun or nonsense ?

Feel free to express your thoughts.

A Four-Wheel Mini Cooper ?

Yes, Mini Cooper will release a four-wheel drive car in next autumn called "the Beachcomber". It will debut at the Detroit Show in January as a concept to give few clues about the production style. In my opinion I think it will be the best car for your chalet, you know .. enjoy driving it across the beach specially when the car is doorless, with fitted plastic inserts and waterproof covers.

I *Heart* Caribou

What can I say ? .. This month is the best month ever, everyone is being so nice to me. First the BlackBerry Bold 2 from my very amazing friend, Viva's 50 KD extra credit and now I received a whole cheesecake from Caribou's "Cheesecake Factory" for free !

I was ordering from Caribou my everyday "Chocolate Cooler" with "Cookies & Cream" cheesecake, after the payment they asked me to write my name/number/home address so they can deliver a whole cheesecake to my house. I didn't understand the reason or why they choose me, but I wrote my information anyway. I was surprised when they arrived to my house, gave me the cheesecake with a big smile and waved for me while their car was moving away.

Thank you Mr. Amazing Friend, Viva and Caribou .. You've made my month one of the best months ever and it's a good way to end 2009 with.

Bu Qatada & Bu Nabeel The Movie

I have been invited by Cinemagic to watch a screening of the upcoming movie Bu Qatada & Bu Nabeel. Everybody probably knows Bu Qatada & Bu Nabeel by now since they have been a huge hit over the past 2 years of ramadan. The movie is under post-production and will be available in cinescape theatres as soon as it's done.

The movie is great in every way. There will be a lot of surprises in the movie and I don't want to ruin them for you, so I recommend you to watch it as soon as it becomes available in the cinemas.

For Real ?

Today while we were studying for our midterm at one of the cafes in free zone, I was shocked by reading this on their menu "Life is too short any way, enjoy it !" and beneath this phrase they draw hookah .. It hurts when you see young people die because of these things, and it hurts more when you see places encourage them to smoke cigarette and hookah .. or what we call it in Arabic "Sheeshah".

This is so wrong ..

Review: Avatar

What can I say about Avatar? People, the movie is a piece of art. I loved everything about it. The acting was superb. Direction was excellent, no doubt about it since he also directed the legendary movie Titanic. The visuals and CGI were breathtaking. The graphic effects are beyond anything I have ever seen. I also loved the background sound effects of the movie which was breathtaking.
I would like to mention one thing that really upset me, Why Cinescape, Why? There were a lot of normal scenes which were cut. I don't understand why the censorship keeps on doing this! These scenes were kind of important and made the viewers really confused! I was also very upset with the infants who were with their families inside the cinema crying most of the time. I don't understand why they would allow infants inside the cinema.

Anyways, the movie is just released in the US so it will take a lot of time to be released on DVD, so I recommend you to reserve a VIP screen and enjoy a 150 minutes of a masterpiece movie.
I rate it a 9.5/10

Review: Midget Burgers

I first saw Midget Burgers back at Ebda3ati Expo. and I wanted to try their burgers so bad but they had too many customers that I couldn't do anything except take their card. Well, yesterday I found that card and decided to give them a call. I ordered a dozen of mini burgers containing Original Midget, BBQ Midget, Mexican Midget, Chicken Midget, Buffalo Midget and Mr.Midget.
I received my order from them on time. I snapped a quick shot of the burgers because I was hungry. As I took my first bite, I felt so happy and joyful. Midget Burgers turned out to be so damn delicious. I loved the Mexican Midget, BBQ Midget, Mr.Midget and Buffalo Midget so much. This is for sure not my last order from them. I ended up very much satisfied from the kind service to the delicious midget burgers.

If you want to try one of the most delicious and mouthwatering burgers go ahead and give them a call or message at 55225052.

Bold 9700

Ok, This time is for real guys. I'm not kidding ! .. The BlackBerry fever finally reached me. As a person who knows nothing about BlackBerry, I found it very useful and easy to deal with ( After having trouble editing time and date ! ). However, Bold 2 has a 3.2MP camera, high resolution display, trackpad and more battery life. Also it's smaller, lighter and thinner than the old Bold. I didn't use the BlackBerry service yet, so I have no idea about it.

It's very nice to see how people spread the love everywhere by sharing gifts. BlackBerry Bold 9700 was a gift from an amazing friend, I won't say his name because I know that he'll be mad at me if I did, right ? :p .. Thank you very much friend, you made me very happy.

Reviews: Ninja Assassin + Old Dogs

I went to the movie with high expectations since the director of the movie is the same person who directed The Matrix, when It was over I came out very disappointed. The story line is absolutely ridiculous which makes no sense at all. The acting was bad. All I saw from the movie is some messy blood. I was expecting a really good ninja movie but this one let me down.
I give it a 5/10

Old Dogs on the other hand turned out to be an excellent movie. The movie is hilarious, I didn't laugh that hard in years. Travolta and Williams were fantastic in the movie. I highly recommend you to watch it. It's a light hearted movie with some extremely funny scenes. A movie that I will definitely watch again and again.

I give it a 9/10

Review : Wagamama

Since the opening, I didn't have the chance to try out Wagamama because it's always full of customers every time I go to 360 mall. Today, I had the chance to try it with Salem and we both ordered the same main dish which is "Chicken Katsu Curry" .. It's chicken breast, steam rice and a special sauce on the top. I was really amazed by the taste ( but not the smell, if you asked me about my first impression ), it was a little bit spicy which I liked and the chicken breast was very delicious.

However, Salem didn't like the sauce that much and he thought the chicken was dry, although he finished his plate ! :p

My advice to you, GO to Wagamama and try out their Chicken Katsu Curry .. It's the best ever !

Kuwait Black Market's Best Three Video Games for PS3

We as Kuwait Black Market team, have tested a lot of video games recently and we would love to share with our readers the best three video games for PS3 in our opinion.

Number one is the most famous and well known, the best first person shooter game in the world "Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2". We love it because it has a story line, an amazing story line that will attract you to play the game non-stoppable. "Modern Warfare 2" is the continue story for "Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare" not "World at War". We rate this game 10/10 !

Next is for sport lovers, specially soccer fans. All we can say that FIFA 10 is simply a piece of art ! .. We used to be PES addict but FIFA 10 just changed that all. Now you can create a player and improve his skills by doing some tasks and finishing your accomplishment book in the Pro section. Our rate is 9.5/10

Finally, "Assassins Creed 2" deserves to be in the top three because of the great graphic, story line, style of play and the amazing martial arts with using knife and sword. The game basically is about an assassin who disappears in the shadow, climbs building and help the good side by taking down enemies. Final rate is 9/10

We hope that you liked our quick review and if you have any game that you would like to share, please do.
