The Ministry of Commerce uncovered what is expected to be largest seize of rotten food in Kuwait’s history. Four warehouses owned by the same company were changing the expiry date of rotten (presumably to be resold again). I’m glad this is over with but shocked something in this scale was operating.[Source]
I got an invitation from Ford Middle East to cover their Mustang 50th anniversary celebration for the blog which took place in Dubai.
Being one of the world’s most iconic sports cars with it’s great performance and amazing design generation after generation, the Ford Mustang enjoys great reputation and is owned and loved by so many car enthusiasts in the Arab region and worldwide.
The invitation included accommodation for 2 days in one of Dubai’s most luxurious hotels; the Medyan Hotel. I was welcomed in the airport and driven to the hotel where I was overwhelmed by how amazing it was. I can’t help but highly recommend the place for someone looking for luxury in Dubai.
Apparently there’s a pretty popular [instagram account] in Kuwait that gives you a heads up on the location of most if not all police patrols when they take place, presumably the guy behind the account has inside information.
What also grabbed my attention was the fact that the account also posted about some corruption scandals, remember when I wrote about the guy that faked being a cop? Turns out he was released using wasta without even registering his crime. This is helpful and everything but if only they made a handy app out of it.
The school wasn’t even a high school, it was a secondary school. What will these students do when they move on to high school? Blow up the school maybe. Their complaint was the teacher was very strict during their exam, which often translates to he didn’t let them cheat during the test.[Source]

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I went to their website and couldn’t believe my eyes, the NBK online website that felt outdated by 15 years got completely revamped.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).
