I’m sure many of you like me, are big fans of Nescafé’s canned coffee that’s sold in supermarkets. There great for a quick caffeine boost. I went to the supermarket the other day and found illy (the popular Italian coffee brand) is now selling their canned coffee. So I bought a couple instead of my usual Nescafé dose. Turns out they taste the same but cost double. Nescafé is 250 fils per can while illy is 495 fils per can.
I randomly found about this place and the idea behind it intrigued me. I know how hard it is for big guys to find clothing in Kuwait since I have a friend dealing with this issue. Destination XL only offers clothing sizing XL and above. You don’t need to worry about not finding your size. They offer a variety of brands that include Reebok, Dockers, Levi’s, Cutter & Lacoste. They’re located in Symphony Mall, for more information you can click here.
Offered Sizes: “Waists 38-64, Big Sizes XL-7XL, Tall Sizes XLT-6XLT plus shoes in extended sizes 10-16 and widths to 3E.”
If you’re a billionaire that is fed up of buying luxurious cars and is feeling adventurous you can go for the 24K gold-plated $1,000,000 (~KD 281,450) dollar vacuum cleaner. Not only is it gold-plated but you also get an amazing $1 discount. The vacuum cleaner doesn’t look that appealing considering its price but only 100 units will ever be built.[Source]
Japan is making life convenient in Kuwait without even knowing it. The stuff they come up with is exactly what we need in this hot summer weather. What’s better than an air conditioner, is a portable one. The spray only costs $5 (~KD 1.5) so is definitely worth a try but the Japanese website is so cluttered I couldn’t find the purchase button.[Source]
Capital District released their new summer collection not too long ago and I’m loving the Red Rooster t-shirt. You can check the entire collection here. For those that aren’t familiar with Capital District, it’s a Kuwaiti clothing line that’s all about heritage design but with a twist.
Best part is they manufacture their clothing locally in US and China.
This is as weird as it gets, can’t imagine how awkward it would be eating something knowing it’s salted with human tears. Not only does the manufacturer claim it’s made by human tears but also explains the tears are produced by Anger, Chopping Onions, Sneezing, Laughter, and Sorrow depending on the product. Only for $30 so worth trying, kind of.[Source]
“Salt Made From Tears combines centuries-old craft with the freshest human tears which are gently boiled, released into shallow crystallisation tanks, then harvested by hand and finally rinsed in brine”
I have finally found the secret behind why almost all Japanese are thin. Turns out we’ve been doing it wrong and have been drinking fattening water the whole time. How water could possibly have less than zero calories and zero fat grams is beyond me. I guess you can go crazy on a marketing scheme and some would fall for it. I’m making cookie flavoured water.
I got to pass by the new X-Cite in avenues to have a tour of the total revamp they have made. A small portion of the place use to be technology related while the rest was furniture. They’ve removed all the furniture and it’s now like a supermarket for electronic devices. My favourite part was the gaming zone expansion, they really put PC gamers in mind.
They now have a full section for Alienware products including desktops for the very first time. They don’t offer desktop customization like in Hawalli yet but they have some really decent Alienware laptops for gamers with 16GB of DRR3 RAM. That’s more than what I have on my gaming desktop, might go for an upgrade soon.
Designated rooms are available for those that want to get a feel on what it’s like having a full surround system and a big screen. Each room has different brands so you can compare the quality of sound. You now control everything on your iPad instead of a remote.
Consoles have their own section too, there are 3 wide tv screens you can test out the motion controllers with. One with a Wii Remote Control, one with Xbox Connect and the last screen with PlayStation Move. Ironically I found a hardcore gaming headset for the PS3 that costs more than the Playstation itself (shown in gallery).
A cool section in X-Cite is the customization booth. You can custom make any sticker you want for either your laptop or your mobile phone. They also offer engraving, not sure how long it takes though to engrave. I think extra space is for the better because it use to be crowded during weekends. The cinema section is still under construction, looking forward to seeing what it will be like.
