News about the road collapse has been going viral for the past hours, there’s a huge hole in King Fahad Street when driving towards Nwaseeb area close to Bnaider. I haven’t heard of something similar to this happening in Kuwait except in very heavy rain conditions. From what I heard the area will be rebuilt within a few hours so this issue shouldn’t take long before getting resolved.
Not sure whether this video is fake or not because he reaches his hand before the flash but definitely the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while. Was expecting him to freak out and end up in a car crash but it was more like “Oh, just a huge flaming ball falling from the sky”. For those living under a rock, meteorite did fall from the sky in Russia recently causing more than 1,200 injuries.

I passed by Marble Slab’s new location in Jabriya and I’m glad an ice cream store opened there having seen at least four frozen yoghurt stores open in Jabriya close to each other. My favorite part about Marble Slab is the mixing, you don’t just pick what ice cream you like, grab a few scoops, add some chocolate sauce and leave. They blend everything together and there’s a lot to pick from.
I chose some vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate ice cream, some kinder bueno pieces, ferrero riacho pieces and digestive biscuits. They all get put together then with the metal equipment they squashed everything together. I went all-out chocolate but they also have healthy stuff like fruits to pick from. Usually I add cookies but I think there’s enough chocolate and biscuit already.
The manager gave me a tour around the place and to my surprise they have pizza ice cream. I think this one was the red velvet pizza, after you pick your pizza you add whatever you want on top of it. So in this case the red velvet is like the tomato of a pizza. These are great for big gatherings or birthdays. They also had ice cream cupcakes available in the gallery below.
I don’t know how X-Cite got a hold of the Nexus 4 since it keeps running out of stock in the U.S but they’re selling it for a whopping KD 170, almost double what I paid to buy it off Google directly (KD 90 excluding shipping cost). I’m pretty sure they have limited stock and will run out soon so if you don’t mind spending a lot of extra cash they’re the only store I know that’s selling it in Kuwait right now.
I received this book out of the blue and had no idea what it was about. At first impression the cover looked like it was introducing a new concierge service in Kuwait. When I opened the book a series of wonderful photos showed up. It’s a book that hand picks the best photographers in Kuwait and spotlights their work all in one place. Took some photos of the ones I liked.
The coffee table book is available in many restaurants and art galleries. If you plan on buying one you have to contact them directly via email (email@example.com)
I’ve heard a lot about Ubon before trying it and I’m glad I did. I was invited to try their food and I have to say they have a lot of unique combinations when it comes to appetizers and main courses that I haven’t seen before. To start with we were offered thai ice tea with milk (available in gallery below). They have a small menu but they clearly go by quality not quantity.
To start off I had the Fresh Salad, it was nicely presented and tasted different because of the sweet sesame sauce they added to the mix of cucumbers, carrots and apples. This was the lightest salad I could find, the others either contain chicken or beef and I normally like to start light to have a lot of space for the main course and appetizers. continue reading»
I might be too picky on this but I find it annoying having to attach/detach my phone from the phone car mount, specially when I need to grab the phone while driving. I don’t mind magnetic mounts, they’re way more practical but they need to have a magnetic cover on my phone which I don’t want as it will end up being thicker and bulky. So the other alternative was finding a stick car mount.
I recently read about TYLT, a brand that has a unique design in everything they build. One of their products was a sticky phone car mount. So far my Nexus 4 has been sticking without leaving residue and it’s been working like a charm. I’m pretty sure it works well with iPhones but I’m not sure about BlackBerry’s. Also comes with support arms in case your device does not stick.
