This isn’t the first time I’ve noticed a local brand making their own chocolate, the first time was I when spotted Sultan Center having their own chocolate bars, amongst a lot of other things. I didn’t like Sultan Center’s that much, Mr.Baker definitely tastes better. They come in two flavours, light milk chocolate and light crispy chocolate, costs 950 fils each.
Facebook are not planning to expand their business to selling perfumes, the perfume was actually spotted in Bahrain. I’m assuming it was in the same store that sells fake Gucci and LV bags, which we have a lot of in Kuwait. You can even see an iPhone 4S perfume on the background which is just as hilarious, doubt it smells like an apple.[Source]
Since riding bikes in winter is suddenly trending, which for a change is a healthy trend; getting some Revolights on your bike would be pretty cool. They come with a rechargeable battery pack that lasts 4 hours on one go. The LED lights are customisable as seen in the video below and cost $250 (KD 70). The LED’s are both water and theft resistant.[Website]
My Puma custom designed sneakers arrived yesterday so I went and picked it up. It arrived 10 days earlier than expected, was supposed to take a month but took 20 days instead. They have 3 different types of shoes you can customize costing KD 44, KD 48 and KD 55. Puma Al Hamra is the only place in Kuwait to have a creative factory.
In comparison to what I designed in Puma’s Creative Factory, the shoe came with a brighter purple than the one I picked. I was hoping the contrast would be the same but it’s off a bit. Puma does allow you to see the material you picked tangibly to avoid contrast issues.
I’ve stuck with Aramex through their ups and downs but no more. They’ve reached a new low in their services that I am not willing to put up with. Before I go on about what made me take this decision I’d like to first point out that all the details in the shipment I had issues with were accurate and lead to my address and no one else’s, attached paper with box below.
Everything in that paper that was attached to the box was correct, no excuses. My brother shipped me two packages from San Diego to Aramex in New York. They were together with the same details except when the package reached my house it was only one box. I called Aramex and the guy told me that the other box was shipped to Doha, Qatar to a guy named Mohammed Abdulla. The guy isn’t even close to my name to cause confusion to begin with.
If I hadn’t called Aramex the guy would have received the shipment which he never paid for and Aramex would move on like everything was fine. After a delay of 15 days while they got my shipment from Doha which was bad enough, they told me the shipment cost KD 11. When I went to Aramex to pick it up they decided it costed KD 16 instead. At that point I wasn’t even in the mood to argue. Won’t be tolerating their services any more.
I’ve already opened an account with PostaPlus and shipped something their way, will review them soon. If everything goes well I’ll be switching from Aramex to PostaPlus completely. If not, Borderlinx is still an option.
Update: Met up with Aramex and had a long talk, you can read about it [here]
The Burger Movement is basically a Kuwaiti clothing store that has a lot to do with burgers. “The idea is to display our tshirts on ovens, grills, condiment bars & dummy fridges.” There shirts are made locally and regionally. The Burger Movement team explained to me how idea started out of the blue at Scoozi Cafe in Boston.[Website]
“It all started when I was having a burger at Scoozi Cafe in Boston during the time I was a college student. A good buddy of mine was sitting across from me as I took another epic bite of their Original Burger, and when he looked up at me – he saw the burger between my hands covering my tshirt and told me that he can totally see that burger printed on an actual shirt.
Since I’m so passionate about burgers & fashion (in that order), his idea made perfect sense to me and I started to scribble down some designs on paper and approached one of my graphic designer friends who transformed my designs to digital pieces provided they were kept basic and simplistic.
When the designs were ready I printed a few on some crappy old tshirts and gave them out to my close buddies (no BO I promise) who fell in love with it instantly. I promised I would save this idea till I got back to Kuwait. 2 years & 5 months later, The Burger Movement came to fruition.
One day we hope to start a Burger Joint that sells tshirts instead of burgers. The idea is to display our tshirts on ovens, grills, condiment bars & dummy fridges.
This is The Burger Movement in a nutshell.“
By washable I don’t mean spraying tidbits of water on the keyboard then painstakingly going around the buttons with a cloth. I mean dipping it in the tub and nothing happens. The keyboard characters are laser printed then UV coated to ensure they don’t fade away. This happens with normal keyboards too so I’m glad they’ve found a way to avoid fading.
If you notice, the keyboard has drainage holes at the bottom to make it really easy to dry. I hate having to clean my hands every time I want to have Doritos while gaming on the PC, those that eat while using the PC know how annoying it is wanting to keep the keyboard clean while eating. The washable keyboard is sold for $39 (~KD 11). Will likely post a review bashing the thing with some Pepsi after I get myself one.[Website]
Not so long ago I received a cookbook from Diet Care with a big variety of healthy low-calorie food that can be cooked at home. It had main courses, desserts and drinks too (46 recipes in total). The healthy cookbook is both in English and Arabic, each dish has all the ingredients on the page next to it. You can order the book from Diet Care, costs KD 5. Looking forward to trying some of what was recommended.
