The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is my new favorite TV show right now, the first 4 episodes was totally a blast and I really can't wait to continue the whole season. It's basically a story about people trying to survive in a world full of zombies, so for those who love watching horror movies you'll fall in love with this piece of art.

This TV show is my new addiction after LOST, Heroes and How I Met Your Mother.

Oula Station's Super Market is Now Open

Yesterday I passed by Oula Station in Mishref to find out that they have opened their super market which is actually a combination of Sultan Center, Burger King (with drive thru) and Pellini. It's a real pleasure to see such improvements regarding gas stations here in Kuwait.
Well done Oula, hope to see more companies do the same thing in the future.

Kevin Clash as Elmo

The most adorable character in Sesame Street Elmo is guided by a man named Kevin Clash. When I first saw the guy I really wasn't expecting him to have the same voice that comes from Elmo specially after hearing his voice in the interview. However, it appears that the tiny cute voice of Elmo is actually coming from this guy which is amazing and funny at the same time !

Kevin is hilarious and Elmo always will be my favorite furry red monster !

It's a recommend to try it out if you're planning to visit Dubai soon.

Review: Express Wash

We were lucky enough to try the service provided by Express Wash. They are a home delivery car wash that targets dirty cars with many amazing services. My car hasn't been spoiled in a long time so this is a great opportunity to have my car super washed.

Express Wash has everything you would ever want for a clean car. This is a couple of pictures I took in action during their car wash.

I have to admit that they did an awesome job. They cleaned almost everything in the car which made it sparkling and dirt free. It took them 3 to 4 hours to shine my car from inside and out which is reasonable because they literally super washed it! The smell of the car is just wonderful and it now feels and looks spotless. All in all, I would certainly recommend them as a #1 car washing service.

What are their services?

QUICK WASH is a normal car exterior and interior wash
it costs 5 k.d for saloon, 6 k.d for 4*4 and 7 for limousine.

SUPER WASH is a detailing wash for each and every part of the car interior, exterior
it costs 20 k.d for saloon, 25 k.d for 4*4 and 30 for limousine

ULTRA WASH is the same as SUPER WASH with an extra full polishing of the car exterior
it costs 25 k.d for saloon, 30 k.d for 4*4 and 35 for limousine.

Award Winning Funny Commercial

That's one of the funniest commercials I have ever seen.

Calculator Prices

Why would a calculator cost 42 KD? I've noticed that most algebra calculators are over-rated.

Your Sense Of Taste

Have you ever thought about why foods taste different? It's really quite amazing. Your tongue and the roof of your mouth are covered with thousands of tiny taste buds. When you eat something, the saliva in your mouth helps break down your food. This causes the receptor cells located in your tastes buds to send messages through sensory nerves to your brain. Your brain then tells you what flavors you are tasting.

Taste buds probably play the most important part in helping you enjoy the many flavors of food. Your taste buds can recognize four basic kinds of tastes: sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. The salty/sweet taste buds are located near the front of your tongue; the sour taste buds line the sides of your tongue; and the bitter taste buds are found at the very back of your tongue.

Everyone's tastes are different. In fact, your tastes will change as you get older. When you were a baby, you had taste buds, not only on your tongue, but on the sides and roof of your mouth. This means you were very sensitive to different foods. As you grew, the taste buds began to disappear from the sides and roof of your mouth, leaving taste buds mostly on your tongue. As you get older, your taste buds will become even less sensitive, so you will be more likely to eat foods that you thought were too strong as a child.

What if you could not taste anything? Things like medications, smoking, not getting enough of the right vitamins, injury to the head, brain tumors, chemical exposure, and the effects of radiation can cause taste disorders

Review: SASO Restaurant

SASO is a fresh and funky restaurant specializing in a sumptuous variety of italian, Asian and American Cuisines. I've known SASO for a while but have never tried it until now. We were kindly invited to try out their food and reveal our honest opinions.
I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. The outdoor seating area were really amazing with the wonderful weather and the ocean in front of you.

Let's go ahead and talk about what we had

[ Electric Ocean Blue - Mohito - Freshly Squeezed Lemon with mint ]

All our drinks were refreshing however, the Electric Ocean Blue was the absolute best!

[ Buffalo Lollipops - Southwest rolls - The Fire House Fries ]

My personal favorites for the starters were the chicken buffalo lollipop with a cool ranch dip, it was really sticky yet so delicious.

[ Crazy Maki - Dragon Maki - Phantom Maki - Special Beef Maki ]

We loved all the maki's they offered along with the special maki they made especially for us because one of our friends didn't like sea food.

[ Smoke House Slider - Torpedo Slider - Original Chicken Slider ]

I'm not a fan of sliders and didn't enjoy their burgers as much as I did with all their other dishes.

[ Chocolate Fondant - Groovy Pudding - Caramel Cheese Cake - Oreo Milkshake ]

Each of us loved their desserts, they were hot, fresh and delightful.

I would like to thank Ms. Anwar Marafi for her invitation to the lovely restaurant. We had a really awesome time and will definitely visit SASO again.

SASO is located in Free-zone Ocean Groove, Sharq and Abu Holifa

Red Bull Flagtag Kuwait 2010

Video of Redbull Flagtag Kuwait 2010 that was held at Marina Crescent on Friday. Me and Salem couldn't attend this event due to the huge crowds. From the video it seems like everyone was enjoying the show.

Thanks Lujain for the nice report !

Aco Taco ?

We were invited to try out a very famous restaurant that will be open on next Thursday. It's basically a Mexican style restaurant ( Can't say it's name yet ! ) that serves the best tacos, nachos, crunchwraps in the world and we had the opportunity to try them all.

To be honest I loved everything, Specially the tacos and crunchwraps. After that we had the best cinnamons ever called "Cinnamons Twists" and caramel applepie.

Can't wait for the official opening on next Thursday at the avenues to enjoy the same great taste of Mexican food again !
