Al-Ghanim Entertainment, which is a new film financing and production company based in Los Angeles and Kuwait plans to make 2 to 4 movies a year with a budget that goes up to $15 million per movie. That is both huge and impressive, they’ve already started casting their first movie. I really hope it doesn’t end up like the other typical Kuwaiti movies, cheesy story, nothing but drama and non-stop relationship violence.[Source]
Osama Ali Kamshad made it to the Guinness Book for being the first disabled man in the Arab world to successfully perform a free jump (3rd worldwide). This requires a lot of experience and confidence, I can imagine how hard it is to perform a free jump from an altitude of 13,500 feet, let a alone having both legs disabled.
I’m been playing this game for a week or so, it’s the type that’s super simple but really addictive. The thing is, for some reason I feel that level 49 which I’ve been stuck on is much harder than any previous level by a big scale. The game simply asks you to put the circles on the big circle without any touching each other. Download the game and see how far you can reach.
After it mysteriously disappeared from supermarkets for years one of my favourite snacks is back in the market. Spotted this at Qurtoba Co-op, I bought a full box in case they ran out quickly. I prefer this Twix much more than the original ones. I just hope it’s not a one time promotion and disappears again.
Ever since I was a kid, I would feel overpowering calmness and relaxation whenever I hear the sound of a pencil being used, or a chalk writing on the board. To this day, it’s so relaxing that I can easily fall asleep. I thought it was just me, I asked around and no one shared the same experience. Few days ago I did some research online only to discover there’s a term for it.
According to Wikipedia this feeling is called ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). The feeling is controversal because there’s a lot of evidence it exists but little to no scientific data to back it up. I guess I am proof that it does exist and would love to see research explaining why it happens.
There are tons of videos on YouTube that span for hours and all they do is draw so you can hear the sound of the pencil rubbing against paper, these videos are for people with ASMR. Someone with ASMR mentioned they would record themselves drawing then play it over to hear the pencil for relaxation.
ASMR has it’s disadvantages too, whenever I watch a tutorial that involves mostly drawing and all I hear is the sound of pencil, I would get sleepy and lose focus. Just thought it was worth sharing, kind of a relief knowing I wasn’t crazy thinking I was the only one with this.
Here are the top three burger places I like going to when I crave a burger.
1. Burger Boutique
The photo above was taken from their instagram, I love going their and ordering a Manhattan burger, which is my favorite. If I was really hungry I would add a commando fries to my order, which is kind of a meal by itself due to how heavy it is. The Manhattan burger is also available at OFK (Open Flame Kitchen) 360 Mall since the restaurants are owned by the same person.
2. Classic Burger
What I love about this place is how they focus on the little things, each burger is served with a coleslaw or green salad and french fries. The burgers they serve are above average in size and will definitely fill you up. Most of the time I go for the Classic Burger, they’re a great place for on-the-go burgers that taste good.
3. Nomad Kitchen
I go crazy when I find out a place serves burgers with crispy nachos, unfortunately Nomad Kitchen is a food truck so they’re not located somewhere specific, you can follow their instagram to keep up with where they are. The burger I tried is called The 1973 Burger and was one of the best I’ve ever had.
A few months ago I received a scam phone call from someone pretending he was from Ooredoo and told me I won KD 20,000. People are still getting the same call to this day and Ooredoo don’t seem to be doing anything about it, instead they divert the issue to the police and tell you to talk to them when you tell them someone is scamming people pretending he’s you.
The scammers call from a UAE number and give you a Kuwaiti number to call and confirm your prize (which is nonexistent), here are more details:
UAE number they call from: +971 552794482, +971 50 842 7560, +971-55 366 3109,
Kuwaiti number they tell you to call: 6964-9953, 6007-6242, 60425368
Disclaimer: Ooredoo the company have nothing to do with the scam, it was an impersonator pretending to be them.
I’m pretty disappointed, when I heard about this I thought there was a booth set where you tell them what name you want and they will sell you a Nutella jar with whatever name you want. I wanted to have one with Kuwaitiful on it as a souvenir. So I went to Mishref Co-Op where they were doing this promotion.
There was no booth, just your regular Nutella jars with stickers you put on them. My name, which is a very popular name in Kuwait (AbdulAziz) wasn’t part of the name list they had, nor was any name that started with ‘Abdul’. The name selection was so small many of my friends names weren’t on the name list either.
For those interested in ‘Nutella My Name’ and are hoping to find their name the promotion will be available at Ministry of Defense Co-op & Carrefour The Avenues from 22nd to 24th January.
