I was passing by the supermarket and noticed Kitco has completely rebranded their product to look like how it was back in the 70’s. The age of “الطيبين”, which is something people commonly say when something is old and loved. In Kuwait when you find something that the older generation had during their childhood you would say ‘راحو الطيبين’ (ra’haw el-taybeen).
I was browsing Ace Hardware the other day and found these DryNow packs that should come in handy if your phone sinks into water. It’s not cheap, KD 5.450 but definitely worth it if it’s going to save your phone, it’s also reusable which is a big bonus. If you’re thinking of just dipping your phone in rice as a solution, well that doesn’t always work.
I posted weeks back about a list of products sent to me that were made in Kuwait, only two were kind of interesting which were a liquid soap and a light bulb. Yesterday while passing by Abyat I noticed some furniture had a logo with a special logo, which turned out to be meaning the furniture was made in Kuwait.
I’m not sure if 100% of the furniture is made in Kuwait but it would be pretty impressive if it was. They have a variety of furniture sets that were made in locally, I think I spotted 4 while I was there. It’s nice seeing companies work on making what they sell locally, it helps everyone.
For those of you that really want one and haven’t bought a Google Glass yet they’re actually in stock on [blink’s website] for KD 575, that’s a lot of money. You can read my thoughts about Google Glass after I got my hands on one [here]. Google has a Google Glass account on instagram that they post cool stuff on.
I received a box the other day that contained items that were manufactured in Kuwait. I was pretty excited to see what else Kuwait manufactures apart from tissue and to my pleasant surprise there were some things I weren’t expecting in that box.
My favourite two were ‘Shatha’ liquid soap and ‘Qray’ energy saver light bulb. I wish we had a local manufacturer that sells solar power panels. There’s going to be an exhibition at the Kuwait International Fair in Mishref showcasing products manufactured in Kuwait from 18th till 21st May. Assumably, it’s not one of those ‘We Love Kuwait’ expo’s that are filled with franchises with nothing manufactured in Kuwait apart from cupcakes.
The box contained tissues, chocolate KDD, liquid soap, water bottle, orange juice, candy, chips, light bulb, biscuits, perfume and raw pasta. I will try to pass by the event and see what else is manufactured in Kuwait that isn’t in this box, hopefully there’s more to see.
Authentic Indian mango is delicious, I get really excited when someone brings a box of Indian mango home. The thing is, we get them by asking a family member or a friend who asks a friend and so on until we reach someone that bought a bulk. I just found out about an [instagram account] that delivers Indian mango, I guess they deal with a direct supplier in India.

There’s something even better than calling in a service to drive to you and fix your flat tire. Tyre Armour is a liquid you squeeze inside the tire wherein it will automatically repair a flat tyre the moment it starts pushing air, here’s how they explained it.
“When a puncture occurs, the air inside the tyre tries to escape, forcing the sealant into the wound, where fibres and fillers interlock to form a flexible and permanent plug, preventing further air loss”
This video was taken somewhere in Canada Dry street I’m assuming, the tyre already had the Tyre Armour liquid inside, it automatically repaired itself. I think it’s the product is great for woman, as the majority won’t repair a tyre themselves. Getting the product on all 4 tyres would cost around
KD 45 KD 30 – 45, no idea how long it lasts though; that would be nice to know.
They have an official distributor in Kuwait and their instagram account can be found [here].
