Food Court in Mishref

Some Contrast mentioned almost a year ago about the opening of a food court in Mishref, well it's been quite a while since the construcion so I had to sneak and have a look at what they were up to.

These are the restaurants which will be opening soon:
-UNO Chicago Grill
-The Chocolate Cafe
-Pasta Pasta
-Hambuger union
-Vitamin Juice
-Shanghai Dragon

The opening of the food court will probably be during the first quarter of 2011. Most of the restaurants are new so it'll be a new food court experience.

Maybach Xenatec Coupe

Xenatec is pleased to announce the launch of the Maybach Xenatec Coupé built by the Karosserie Manufaktur Weinsberg - a division of Xenatec Group - in cooperation with Maybach.
Maybach Xenatec is not built to sit back and let the driver takes the wheel, this time they built it for you to drive. Compared to the Maybach 57S limousine, major changes have been also made to the immensely strong bodywork, which has been completely redesigned and engineered and features new doors allowing for easy access to the rear passenger compartment.

The windscreen and rear screen are more steeply raked for a sporty silhouette, lowering the roofline without compromising passenger comfort. A full glass roof can be fitted if desired, as can almost all other options available for the Maybach 57S.

The doors and side panels as well as the front and rear fenders are new, as are the front and rear bumpers. Rear track is increased by 20 mm, and the standard 20-inch wheels allow for a marvellously supple ride whilst the optional 21-inch wheels sharpen handling to sports car levels - bringing the Maybach experience to the driver's seat.

It has a 12V 6000CC engine that gives you 621HP. The cost of this incredible piece is 205,702KD (€675,000).

Install "Advanced Task Killer" on Your Galaxy S Now !

Advanced Task Killer app for Android allows you to stop running background processes or apps in memory. The Android operating system can run multiple apps in memory concurrently and Advanced Task Killer will help you to kill these apps.

Why it's important ?
Well, I was having a problem with my Galaxy S which made my phone works very slow. It was very annoying and I almost .. "ALMOST" hit it as hard as I can in the wall !

Thank god I read some articles about people having the same problem with their Galaxy S and they fixed it by installing Advanced Task Killer. I did install the app in my phone and it became super fast and I'm very comfortable with it right now. ( Not going to hit it on the wall )

So if you have a Galaxy S I really recommend you to install this app since it's better than task manager app that comes with the phone.

The New Android Market is Now Available

The new Android Market is now available on HTC and Samsung mobile, as far as I have seen. It's simply amazing and attractive kinda looks like an XBOX Live theme. The problem is that they haven't placed the paid apps yet, so the only apps you'll find are the free apps.
You don't have to download or update the new market, it will be updated by itself.

Yesterday, since the dust went off I decided to try out Al-Oula car wash station, the one located in West Mishref. I was waiting in the line for almost 10 minutes until one of the guys came and told me in a very cold way "We can't wash your car" and left !

My car is Hummer H2 and I still can't find a place to wash my car using a washing machine, if you know a place please share !

Kuwaiti Film Heaven's Water

The Kuwaiti film “Heaven’s Water” by international award-winning director Abdullah Boushahri has been selected to compete for the Muhr Arab Award in the short films category at the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) 2010 edition. The film was written by Boushahri in collaboration with Emarati screenplay writer Mohammad Hassan Ahmad and starring the renowned actor Khaled Ameen and up-and-coming actress Haya Abdulsalam.

The 23-minute film takes place in Kuwait City and revolves around (Tawfeeq) a common peddler, who meets (Latifa) a pregnant girl in her second month at a local fish store. Brought together by their interest in a yellow fish, they endure the tribulations of her abortion, and his fear of water. Their bond grows stronger as they lose themselves in the bustle of the city.

I strongly encourage Kuwaiti films to be produced and BeyondDreams seems to have done an excellent job in developing a high quality standard film. We wish them the best of luck!

How To Upgrade Your Galaxy S To Froyo 2.2

Today I finished upgrading my Galaxy S to the latest firmware version Froyo 2.2 and it was kinda complicated since it's my first time to upgrade the device.

First of all you have to install Kies from Samsung's official website, then connect your Galaxy S to your PC using a USB and click on the icon showed in the image above. ( Note : The battery life should be more than 50% to begin the upgrade )

After finishing the upgrading process, the device will be rebooted by itself and coding will be displayed in your screen so don't panic and wait until it finishes.

Wait few minutes until the device restores all your applications and files, after that you'll experience major differences in your device and I'll be reviewing it very soon.

Click here to read my first review.

Review : The Next Three Days

Yesterday Salem, Kuwaitiful and I went to watch "The Next Three Days". The movie was incredible and really deserved to be watched, specially since Russel Crowe is acting in this movie. It's about a husband trying to help his wife to escape from jail after murdering her boss.
My final rate for the movie is 8/10 and it would be 9 only if it wasn't boring in the beginning, but overall the movie was amazing.

RssDemon : Android's Best RSS Feed Reader

The moment I switched from iPhone to Android phones, I was searching for an application that can group all my favorite blogs and sync by itself searching for new posts like the application "KuwaitBlogs" for iPhones. So I tried like five different RSS feed readers and loved only one, "RssDemon". It's fast and very organized, gives you the ability to star your favorite posts from each blog so you can easily return to them, and group each blog by different editable categories.

Since there's no KuwaitBlogs application for Androids, I'm gonna stick with RssDemon which is very useful specially for those who love to read blogs and don't want to miss any post.
