Illegal Parking At The Avenues

The Avenues mall have been taking it seriously on putting a No Parking sticker to whoever is parking illegally! I actually encourage them on doing that because they've been working hard on making the parkings much easier with the new parking system at the avenues mall.

Thanks Pancrazio

Sleeved Blanket

I just love the idea of a sleeved blanket. This is exactly what I need for bed. It is made for reading books but you can also use it for your laptop on bed.
... because it's really really annoying to have cold arms while reading in bed!

Review: Let's Burger

We were invited by Mr. Fahad Al-Nouri for the soft opening of Let's burger. I was beyond excited to try it out since I'm a huge fan of something called burgers. I've taken a lot of pictures so you'll be looking at a fabulous restaurant design with mouthwatering delicious food.

Welcome to the glorious world of Let's Burger!

I loved the design of the restaurant. It's so big and spacious with a cool funky and classic look. Dazzling!

We started our order with 2 kinds of appetizers which were (Bits of Everything) and (Boneless Wings) Both orders were very delightful

What's unique about Let's Burger? I'll tell you, they have something called "Have It Your Way" which basically you can choose your desired burger then you can go ahead to the topping bar and choose what can make your burger the best!

We started our main course with 4 different meals. Have It Your Way, Mini Musketeer Burger, Chicken Buffalo Burger and the country steak. To be honest everything was just perfect. We all loved what we got. Everything was so tasty and delicious

Before we start with the desserts I would like to mention that the staff were beyond amazing. They have an excellent service. I care a lot about restaurant service and I would just like to say that they nailed it.

AAHHH the desserts were so mouthwatering. I just loved how soft everything was and how they melted so easily in my mouth.

Overall, I have to mention that the food was very clean and everything was so amazingly delicious. I will definitely be a regular customer to them. They are now one of my favorite burger restaurant in Kuwait. I honestly left the place totally satisfied.

Let's Burger is located in 360 mall on the 3rd floor. The official opening is today 26 of February so go ahead and try it now because it is indeed like never before!

Huge Fire in Kuwait City

Weird Sign

My friend found this weird sign outside a baqala in Jabriya. It says "The smart one come down"
I have no idea what it supposed to mean!

Update: Apparently there's an old man working in the baqala and he wants people to go inside and buy instead of letting himself go to them and ask for the orders. Now that's a clever sign!

Thanks Mohammed

Happy National and Liberation Day

Facts: Nose Bleed Treatment

Most people know the right way to stop a nose bleed; lean the head back and apply pressure to the nose. WRONG!
When that happened to me I went to the doctor and she told me a whole different thing. Tilting your head back can create complications by allowing blood to travel to the stomach and possibly leading to irritation and vomiting.

The best treatment is to sit down, lean forward and keep your head above your heart, which lessens the bleeding. Leaning forward also helps drain the blood from the nose.

Never treat a nosebleed by leaning your head back!

Sunglasses Fail

That's why we advice people not to wear sunglasses indoor even if they wanna look cool !

You can notice that many people specially here in Kuwait love to wear sunglasses inside malls or universities. Sunglasses will definitely help to protect your eyes from sunlight, but if you are used to wearing them indoor they'll harm your eyes or put you in the same situation as shown in the video above.

Be cool, but not a fool !

Review: Merlin Home Multimedia Center

I recently bought a new device called Merlin Home Multimedia Center from Dubai Mall. What caught my attention about this amazing device is that it supports MKV. MKV means that you can watch your best movies on a a 1080p full high definition. That's not all, the device has a built in BitTorrent client that allows you to download your torrents directly from the unit without keeping your PC on. It also includes a DVD quality recording, WI-FI and built in LAN ports.

Merlin Home Multimedia Center supports the latest digital video formats including H.264, MKV, DIVX HD, MOV, FLV, WMV9, RM/RMVB, TS and HD DIVX supports up to 1920 x 1080p. It is very difficult to find all these formats supported on the same device.

You will get a free WI-FI Adapter with your HMC. It will make the WI-FI signal reachable and much more powerful.

Merlin Home Multimedia Center is without a doubt one of the best device for movies! It has all the things you will ever need. If you are a regular movie fan then I recommend you to get this amazing device right away!

Pottery Barn in Kuwait

Pottery Barn will be the first store to open outside America. It is located in the Avenues mall next to American Eagle.

I've known Pottery Barn from the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S. where phoebe despises pottery barn and doesn't like anybody to order from them. After a while Phoebe find out that both ross and rachel have the same apothecary table from pottery barn.

I wish that wouldn't happen here because I just hate it when everyone has the same furniture.

Review: The Wolfman

As soon as I saw the trailer of The Wolfman I've been having goosebumps and just couldn't wait to watch it. When I saw the movie I came out very disappointed. Despite the good actors in the movie like Benicio Deltoro and Anthony Hopkins, the movie was very poorly made. The story line was bad, script was very bad and the direction was just awful. The only thing that I liked about the movie was the special effects and the scary scenes which were few.

I would rate the movie 5/10

Review: Al-Sajeena Book

من اجمل الروايات التي قراتها وانصح في قرائتها
لواقعيتها وصدقها
فهي تتكلم عن سيره مليكه اوفقير وعائلتها من طفولتها حيث امضت احد عشر عاما وراء اسوار القصور الى هروبها بعد عشرين عاما من شتى الوان الاعتقال
هذه الروايه تاخذك الى عالم اخر لاتتخيله ابدا
تنقلك الروايه من حياة الترف والدلال الى حياة القهر والسجون والظلم وسلب الحريه
عند انتهائي من قراءه روايه السجينه حمدت ربي على نعمه الحريه
منعت هذه الروايه بالكويت لانها تتعرض الى شخص ملك المغرب الحسن الثاني
لكن تقريبا من سنتين تم السماح ببيعها بالكويت
رواية اكثر من رائعه منها تعرف معنى الحياة ومعنى الحريه وتعرف معنى النعم التي تعيش فيها وتحمد الله عليها

اشجع الكل على قراءه هذه الروايه

Thanks EKR for your kind review :)

Garrett Caramel Popcorn

I'm a person who is addicted to something called caramel and I've tasted almost every kind of caramel sauce here in Kuwait. Garrett Caramel Popcorn is a whole new story. Without exaggerating, I have to say that it is the BEST caramel I have ever tried and it has the best taste you will ever experience. I've bought 2 gallons of Garrett Caramel Popcorn from dubai and I totally regret not bringing more.

Inspite of the caramelCrisp, you can find a lot of other flavors like cheese-corn, buttery, cashew caramel crisp, Pecan Caramel Crisp, Macadamia Caramel Crisp and Plain popcorn.

You can also have the choice to choose the bucket design and the sizes of gallons. Garrett Popcorn is located in Dubai Mall infront of the Aquarium. The popcorn can last for up to 2 weeks which is awesome!

Autism Awareness "Walk"

Regarding to the " Walk " event that aims to spread the awareness of autism " Autistic " Under the patronage of H.H Sheikh Ahmad AL Abdullah AL Ahmad AL Sabah. Im going to make this short and clear, Their are many and i mean " Many " disorders around the world, And i am delighted and thankful that someone thought of bringing up such campaign. Despite That all health campaigns are important to as, the most health campaigns that i have seen here in kuwait are the cancer campaigns. What i am trying to say here is, many people do not now what autistic disorder is. therefor, i have done some research related to autistic disorder and id love to share that information with you. I hope what i have tried cover would fulfill your needs to understand such campaign " Autistic ".

What is autistic disorder?

Autistic disorder is also called autism, is a neurological and developmental disorder that usually appears during the first 3 years of life. A child with autism appears to live in his/her own world, showing little interest in others, and a lack of social awareness. The focus of an autistic child is a consistent routine and includes an interest in repeating odd and peculiar behaviors. Autistic children often have problems in communication, avoid eye contact, and show limited attachment to others.

Autism can prevent a child from forming relationships with others. A child with autism may resist cuddling, play alone, be resistant to change, and or have delayed speech development. Persons with autism tend to exhibit repeated body movements (such as flapping hands or rocking) and have unusual attachments to objects. However, many people with autism excel consistently on certain mental tasks.

What causes autism?

The cause of autism is not known. Research suggests that autism is a genetic condition. It is believed that several genes are involved in the development of autism. Research studies in autism have found a variety of abnormalities in the brain structure and chemicals in the brain, however, there have been no consistent findings. One theory is the possibility that autistic disorder is a behavioral syndrome that includes several distinct conditions. However, parenting behaviors are not the cause or a contributing factor to the cause or causes of autism.

What are the symptoms of autism?

1-kids do not socially interact well with others, including parents.

2-kids do not communicate well with others.

3- kids have demonstrates repetitive behaviors, such as rocking and hand or finger flapping.

4-kids are always preoccupied, usually with lights, moving objects, or parts of objects.

5-The kids do not like noise.

Alcoholic Mouth Rinse in Kuwait

As I was looking for a mouth rinse at the supermarket I found the Oral B on the top shelf, so I started to look at it's ingredients and I found out that it contains alcohol. I started comparing the other brands of mouth rinse to see if it's normal or not and I found that all of them are alcohol-free except that Oral B.

I have no idea why the suppliers would bring alcohol ingredients in Kuwait even if it contained a little bit of alcohol. I went home and googled the mouth rinse that contains alcohol and I found out that any mouth rinse containing alcohol could highly cause an oral cancer. It also causes a heavy cough and some other problems.

If you want to buy a mouth rinse be careful not to get anything that contains alcohol in it because it will be very bad for your health.

They Reached Facebook !

Most of us have Facebook account. We know that Facebook is made for us to be connected with our friends or make new friendships, but there are some people that went far away from the idea of Facebook like this lady "Al-Khattaba Um Hussain". Khattaba is a woman who affiances girls for men, people usually seek her in critical situations. For example, if they didn't find their other half to be married to .. They call this lady asking for help.

However, to be in Facebook and adding girls, thats just wrong .. Sorry but "Bnatna mo 6ay7een eb chabd roo7hom" !

The video is hilarious just watch the way they dance !

Four Parking Spots to Fit One Car ?!

We saw a lot of cars take two parking spots, but this time a car just broke the record by taking four parking spots at once. Where ? .. At the most crowded mall in Kuwait, the Avenues. How would you act in a situation like this ? Imagine if you have a movie to catch and there are no parking spots, suddenly you saw this car parked at the same way. What will be your reaction ?

He can park his car a little bit far from the mall since he got this huge generator in the back of his car. I hope he understands that what he did is wrong, and nobody would act like this guy !

Snow Blizzard

... and they say it's getting cold here in Kuwait!

Layalina For Kids

Layalina just released the first issue of a magazine called "Layalina Junior". It's a magazine that has pictures of children only whether it's a birthday party, graduation or a special occasion. It also has information on kids stores and events. The original layalina magazine has a lot of kids event so it's much better to put that category in a separate magazine. I'm a person who loves kids and I think that the kids magazine is a great idea.

Minute Made Lemonade

I am a big fan of minute made products. Ever since I was in the united states back in 2004 I tried the minute made lemonade and I instantly fell in love with it. If your looking for a great taste of lemonade go ahead and try the minute made lemonade from sultan center. It's simply the best!
