A 3 minute report worth watching that brings some stories that were never shared before. When CNN asked an injured in hospital after the bombing if he’s angry he replies with I’m not angry, I’m happy, I see love in Kuwaiti eyes. Although he sustained serious injuries he finds happiness within the unity of the country.
We finally have something I like in Qurtoba Co-op, before that we only had Burger King, a fatayer place, a shawerma place, Caribou (which use to be my only go to place) and Quiznoss (which I kind of like). It looks really nice from the inside but it’s so packed, didn’t bother waiting in line. I’m really hoping after Ramadan traffic will reduce significantly.
Kuwait architecture firm (KEO) has just revealed what the new Kuwait Investment Authority headquarters will look like and according to them it’ll be a “beacon for the city”. Right now with all the food craze everything is the bacon of the city so it’s nice to see some fresh architecture designs. The tower is 220 meters tall and consists of 40 floors.
“The building is really in two parts. The large horizontal podium containing a VIP reception hall, conference centre, dining hall, and public spaces are in the shape of a dhow – the vessel which bought riches to the country through fishing and pearl diving.”
According to service hero who’s been surveying consumers since 2010, the satisfaction rate has been increasing and we are set to reach 8.00+ by the end of this year if it continues at the same pace. Their report also goes through the worst rated categories and the best rated categories.
The worst rated categories were Internet Service Providers (ISP), telecoms and hospitals, understandably so. The best rated categories were cafe’s, furniture stores and Islamic banks. Below is a gallery that includes more info. You can rate the brands you want by going through their website [here].
The National Assembly of Kuwait has approved the use of closed-circuit TV monitoring (CCTV) in public places across the country. They’re cameras installed everywhere that monitor all activities to reduce crime and speed up identification. You will basically be watched wherever you go all over Kuwait. No date on when they will start installing the cameras but places like hotels, malls and sports clubs will be included.[Source]
I have bad news and good news for Qurtoba. The good news being Elevation opening soon obviously, located right next to Burger King. The bad news is a source told me Pick Yo won’t be opening up and instead have decided to close their branch which is disappointing, I was planning to frequent that place like crazy being so close to home. The Pick Yo news isn’t 100% accurate but I guess I’ll have to settle with burgers instead of frozen yoghurt for the time being.
I didn’t like instagram’s old layout on web, this one is a lot more cleaner and best of all they have removed the images on top that change randomly. My last post on instagram was 7 weeks ago, there’s just too many social channels to keep up with. I like SnapChat more because I don’t need to worry about the image looking pixel perfect and taken from the best angle.

This is just outright crazy. I guess Al Ahmedi Snapchat’s moments of fame aren’t over yet. Don’t get too excited though, he wasn’t on Conan as a guest. The actual guest host was shown photos of people submitted by his fans of people that look like him and this photo was one of them. You can watch the clip below.
