This should have been implemented a very long time ago. I often pass by the supermarket just to get a snack and something to drink; only to find there’s a big line. This solves the issue, not only is it 10 pieces or less but you can only pay with cash avoiding the delay when paying with credit cards. Took this photo at Mishref Co-op, currently 1 cashier with has this.
A lot of times I’m peacefully driving my car to my destination, then read what the sticker on the car infront of me says and go “wait, what?!”. Some sticker texts are beyond my limits of imagination to explain. It will always remain a mystery why a guy driving a Raptor is explaining something his gramdma has that you don’t.

Update: Mystery solved! Well that way quick.
It’s a Kuwaiti saying I didn’t know about that was translated in English, which made very little sense. The saying is “اللي عندك عند يدتي”
The meaning of the saying isn’t clear, I had 3 people explain it and each one had a completely different meaning for it.
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.
