I posted one of these milk cookie cups on instagram and some people went crazy over them (myself included), though unfortunately it was a crazy recipe I found online. So to my pleasant surprise, I found a bakery in Kuwait that does them, maybe in smaller size though. Will order a bunch soon, here’s their [instagram account]. Still waiting for someone to introduce a cookie mug.
I went to their website and couldn’t believe my eyes, the NBK online website that felt outdated by 15 years got completely revamped. It’s much more appealing to the eye and for once looks like an actual website of a bank. Text is clearer, navigation got easier.
Unfortunately they still use the same security system that most people don’t like, I’ve actually had several arguments about their secuirty system with friends on whether it’s useful or not. Would be great if they could implement something like Google’s 2-way authentication method.
I looked around but couldn’t find any new features except for this one, which I think is new. It allows you to nickname every account you have, if you’re the type of person that has a ton of credit cards this can really come in handy. Makes it much easier to recognize which card is which.[Website]
I have searched long and hard for a good way to get a warranty from ordering online, which is the biggest issue with most people ordering online. They want the cheaper cost but they also want a warranty. I found a great website with a unique policy.
If your camera or phone arrives with any defects, you can go to the brand locally to fix it, and the website will pay the cost, you don’t need to ship the product back. Their warranty lasts 1 year, you can read more about their regulations [here].
How it works:
- You order your device and get it shipped
- It arrives and you notice there is a fault or defect
- You email Digital Rev with proof
- After they accept they either tell you to go to a specific local repair service or one of your choice
- You pay to get it repaired, email the repair receipt to Digital Rev and they will refund you that money
Apart from having this handy warranty policy the website offers cheaper items at clearance, weekly special and overall when compared to other websites they have one of the cheapest prices for items around the web. My next lens is probably going to be from Ditigal Rev, though I kinda hate their popular video reviews, they’re just too cheesy.
Someone has finally said enough is enough, the new android camera now tells you to rotate your phone when you start taking a vertical video. If you insist on taking a video vertically the phone smacks you in the face, I wish. The video below shows how the new camera works.
Here’s a video showing why vertical videos aren’t right (found it on AndroidPolice).
Alshaya has launched their own platform for delivery or pick up which including Pizza Express, Potbelly, Pinkberry, PF.Changs, Asha’s, Sprinkles and Garrett. The place i’d likely to order from isn’t there yet, Shake Shack. You can either order for a delivery or pickup.
The website feels like it’s a 2008 version of Talabat, the interface is old but sort of responsive to mobile. They’re planning to launch an Android and iOS version soon. Haven’t tried ordering anything yet but might post about the experience once I do.[Website]
Everyone got a notification today on instagram, it got me excited then disappointed. I thought they were actually going to delete fake accounts as there’s an insane amount of people in Kuwait that have bought followers; companies, organisations, celebrities you name it.
I checked and no massive drop of follower numbers, even on the accounts that so clearly had bought fake followers. They only removed spammers, the type of bots that automatically comment on posts to get more followers. Either way, it’s one step in the correct direction.
Everyone keeps hearing Kuwait has the most car accidents in the world per capita but I’ve never statistics broken down to deaths per day. There has been 120 cases with involving death due to car accident in the past 100 days, that’s a lot. Apart from the deaths 250 had severe injuries in the past 100 days.[Source]
I normally don’t like when a restaurant specialises in everything because then everything will taste okay, rather than having a specific type of dish taste really good. This wasn’t the case with Coco Cabana, they had a huge variety and the most of the dishes they serves were great.
The Dynamite Shrimp Salad tasted as good as it looked. It was a combination of shrimp, corn and lettuce. We actually tried a caesar salad with some cookie cubes (picture in gallery) and it was a good combination except there was a lot of lettuce.
