TV Show : Modern Family

Modern Family is one of the greatest TV shows I have ever seen lately. I've watched all the episodes from season 1 to season 2 till episode 13 and they were extremely funny that I won't mind watching the episodes all over again and I'll be laughing as if it was my first time to watch the episodes !

Modern Family has won the Emmy's award for best comedy. All the characters are funny and some how related in a great harmony to blast all the comedy they have to their viewers, my favorite characters are Phil, Gloria and Cameron. Can't wait for episode 14 to be released !

Watch Modern Family and thank me later *tongue out*

A very emotional video showing the violent clashes between police and demonstrators as over ten thousand gather on the streets of Cairo.

Star Size Comparison

This is a really interesting video showing a comparison of the largest stars compared to earth. The video is nicely made with visuals and examples so I recommend everyone to watch it.

Review : Beats by Dr.Dre Studio

Since I've just finished my finals ( Hope everyone got good grades ), I decided to buy beats by Dr.Dre Studio to spend my time when I'm at home listening to music, playing video games and watching movies using it.

For the past 2 years I've been hearing good reviews about the headphone and how it is the best around the world. I went to X-Cite AlGhanim at the Avenues Mall and found out that the price didn't change at all, it's still 99KD since 2009 ! .. The official site also sells it with 98KD ( $349.95 ), so there's almost no difference in the price.

Inside the box you'll have 2 AAA batteries, 2 Monster cables for the headphone, adapter and owner's manual. On the other side of the box you'll have the headphone's case which is really help full, specially if you want to keep it safe.

The performance is mind blowing as I was expecting because of the noise cancellation now you can enjoy your music as if you were in the same studio with your favorite artist, and when you hold the b button on your right side it mutes the sound so you can hear those who're trying to talk to you while listening to music. I would rate this headphone 9.7/10 for its incredible performance, it didn't reached 10/10 because of the batteries .. I didn't like the idea of buying batteries from time to time.

Overall, beats by Dr.Dre Studio is one piece of art that you will really enjoy having and X-Cite will give you a 1 year warranty that covers everything. If anything happens to your headphone they can fix it or replace the whole thing as long as it's still under the warranty period.

Thank you Dr.Dre !

360 Mall Celebrating 50th Independence Day

While I was at 360 Mall, I noticed a huge poster of Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah placed outside the mall. They are celebrating the 50th Independence day for Kuwait and the 5th year of Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah presidency.

Good job 360 Mall!

Being Organic : Biona's Organic Apple Juice

While I was in Qadsiya co-op, I noticed that they have a new section just for organic food and drinks. So I decided to try one product at a time since most people say that most organic food tastes awful and only few have a great taste.

This time I choose biona's organic apple juice. I really was expecting something that doesn't has a taste at all, but surprisingly it was very great like eating a real apple. The problem of organic juices in general that the expiry date is very short, as for the drink I choose the expiry date was within 3 days only after opening.

Next time I'm gonna try the apple and cranberry juice !

Very creative ad by Adidas, and Spain's newest jersey looks amazing!

Car on The Top of A House in Kuwait

That's kinda weird and never thought it will happen only maybe in Shuwaikh Industrial Area shops, but not in my area !

I really don't understand the reason of putting the red car on the top of the house. Is it some kind of a decoration ? they're turning their house into a shop ?

As they say in Arabic " اذا عرف السبب بطل العجب " or if you knew the reason you'll wonder no longer.

Mirinda's New Flavors

Mirinda recently released 2 new flavors that I had to try which are Pomegranate (رمان) which Mohammed posted about a few months ago and Tangerine (افندي).

I personally loved Pomegranate although the flavor was a bit strong. On the other hand, I didn't like the taste of the Tangerine because it doesn't taste that good as a drink.

The idea of new flavors were great and I hope they keep releasing new products.

A New Look

I think it's time to have some change in the design since we used to have a black background from the moment we start blogging. Our logo represents Kuwait Towers so we decided to choose our background to be close to our logo, and the result was a road that leads you to Kuwait Towers.

Hope that you liked the new look.

Music of The Week : "Imagine"

The performance is outstanding !

Review : Benihana

Today was my chance to try Benihana with my friends which is a Japanese restaurant located in the Avenues Mall phase 2, beneath the food court.

We selected the table that comes with a cooking surface so we can watch the chef cooks in front of us and enjoy their entertaining style of cooking. The good thing about this table that it comes with seven seats, thats almost enough for one family to watch how the chef cooks.

"Antony" was our chef for the night and he proofed to us that he's one of the best chefs in Benihana with his since of humor and amazing cooking style.

I had Nigimayaki as an appetizer and to compare it with Maki's Nigimayaki I'd really prefer Maki over Benihana. There was almost no taste for the beef and the sauce was weak.

Then we had soup, salad and shrimp. These three dishes comes as a complimentary when you order any of the meals in Benihana. I really loved the salad the most, the dressing was extremely delicious. Since I don't like sea food, two of my friends told me that the shrimps were very amazing and they enjoyed every piece of it.

For the main dish I ordered Teriaki Steak, it comes with steam rice and vegetables. What made it perfect is the teriaki sauce, so if you ordered the same meal ask the chef to add more sauce and you'll love it ! ( Sorry no image for the dish )

I had two drinks to be honest, plantation ice tea and the regular ice tea. Both were amazing specially the plantation ice tea, it's a pineapple ice tea.

If Benihana was you next destination you'll love the new hyper atmosphere and how the staff treats you specially the chefs. As for the food it's good not bad but they need to create some new sauces to add some taste to the food.

Why They Made Parking Lines ?

The answer for this question is very simple and everyone knows why they made parking lines. The idea is to park between the two lines by keeping a little bit space for the car next to you so you both can open the doors, exit and enter your car without struggling.

Now if you don't know how to park properly, why in the world you decide to park in reverse ?

Don't blame anyone except yourself when you see marks of a cat fight on your door next time buddy.

Bu Faisal vs Bu Faisal ?

As you can notice that P0ach and BananaQ8 already posted about the competition between Gulf Bank and NBK, and how the two of them used the same character for their campaign which is Bu Faisal.

Regarding this competition, we received the following :

"Guys did you notice NBK’s new ads this week? Did it remind yo
u of another bank’s campaign only last month? No? Does the name Gulf Bank trigger anything? Ok, well if you’ve been locked up somewhere for the past months, let me update you on life. Not really, but bear with me. Here’s the story, last month there were a few billboards, ads, etc. with pictures of “Gulf Bank clients” saying how Gulf Bank helped them, and how there lives are now fulfilled, and their dreams came true. Thank you violins, you can stop now. Now going back to our story. NBK was apparently ‘ouched’ and they acted fast. (A little too fast, I might say.) And so, NBK has new ads with pictures, also of fulfilled, happy “Gulf Bank clients”. Is it a ‘copy-cat’ case, or a ‘my daddy is bigger than your daddy’ war? Anyways, while the big boys take it outside, like good boys do. Let’s decide on whom we prefer, Gulf Bank’s immaculate Bu Faisal, or NBK’s ‘too real for my taste’ Bu Faisal?"

So what do you think of that ?

I wonder if KFH will do the same too, I smell banks fight.

Update: When I was at the Avenues Mall I passed by the NBK ATM machine and saw that NBK wasn't copying from Gulf Bank, NBK are using different names for their campaign not just Bu Faisal.

A reader "QtK" also wrote a comment about the same thing, so it seems like Bu Faisal and Bu Faisal wasn't a copy-cat case after all.

Garbage Cleaning Workers

My friend took a picture showing the amount of garbage being thrown outside the house during the garbage pick-up time. This is a really frustrating and unacceptable move towards the workers.

If you love first person shooter games that have lots of violence and killing, then BulletStorm would be you number one game in the near future. I'm very amazed by the game style you almost can do everything and humiliate your opponent with new skills.

Pizza Hut: Taste The World

Pizza Hut and Q8BlackMarket seems to be in love since this is their second give away promotion they gave us to try. The promotion this time was for five new flavors of pizza, each flavor represent a country of the world. They have American, French, Italian, Mexican and Indian flavored pizza.

The American "Mega Pepperoni" was delicious since it has Pizza Hut's yummy cheese and lots of pepperoni. Our rate for this pizza is 8.5/10

The French "Creamy Chicken Mushroom Pizza" has a special taste, the sauce inside was kinda like the sauce that we use for a pasta ( white sauce ) which is extremely amazing specially with the large piece of mushroom and chicken on the top. Final rate was 9/10 for the unique taste.

The Italian "Four Cheese Pizza" was my best pizza of all the five pizzas since it's filled with three kinds of cheese. My rate will be 10/10 since it was the first pizza to be finished.

The Mexican "Chicken Chipotle Pizza" also grapped our attention for its new taste, we thought that it will be spicy hot but it was not hour hot at all and for those who love tomato this might be your favorite pizza. Our rate is 8/10

The Indian flavor "Chicken Tikka Pizza" was spicy and we didn't enjoy it as much as the previous flavors. Our rate will be 4/10

Overall, we enjoyed the five flavors and would like to thank Pizza Hut for giving us the opportunity to try them all. The price of each pizza is 2.750KD

Give them a try and share your own rates for each flavor as a comment.

Cheestrings: Shallom, I'm In Israel !

Cheestrings is a company that produce cheese sticks and you can find them at Sultan Center here in Kuwait. The thing is I was very surprised to find this written inside one of the cheese sticks besides the flag of Israel "Shallom, I'm in Israel .. where you can dive in the Red Sea and go snow-skiing on Mt.Hemron all in one day! Make up a wacky sport that combines two others!"

Should Sultan Center remove this product or keep it ?

Motorola has just released their newest device XOOM that runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb. As far as I know this piece of art will be the world's fastest and best tablet ever since it has Honeycomb which is Google's powerful and latest operating system made just for tablets.

It has a 3G wireless access and can be upgraded to 4G, it is also powered by a dual core processor with each core running at 1 GHz, delivering up to two GHz of processing power.

Till now everything in this device says that it's the next big thing in the technology world, but does Motorola XOOM has the power to defeat Apple's iPad and Samsung's Tab ?

We have to wait and see, click here for more details.
