Apparently they’ve put this ad in a Lebanese newspaper the day after Trump’s inauguration with the caption “The world has gone nuts.”. I wish we get this kind of creativity in Kuwait, but then again, many would have issues with this.
When I want a quick breakfast snack I normally get a AlFaysal ready-pizza from the Bakala close by and something to drink. I was eating it today and it tasted weird, it tasted like sand was poured on it. Took a closer look and it was obviously expired.
I’ve always ate food without looking at it closely thinking the expiry date is there for a reason, well I guess I have to always double check as this pizza’s last day is today, and it’s already inedible.
Always inspect your food.
The yearly Global Game Jam is a great way to get introduced into game developing in a fun and interactive way. If you’ve wanted to develop any sort of game then you’d probably want to attend this event taking place on the 19th, you can be anywhere from a designer to a musician.
It’s kinda like [Startup Weekend], but rather than building a startup, you’re building a game, which can become a startup on a later stage. I would have loved attending and building a team to work with throughout the weekend, but I’m currently out the country. You can also go and spectate and hear the talks.
- When: 19th-21st January (this weekend)

There is an insane amount of coffee shops for a country this small right now, it seems whenever I browse a social channel someone is talking about a new speciality coffee shop. There are so many that one opened next to my office recently. I think we’re reaching the point where we’ll be the highest country of caffeine consumption per capita.
We were hungry the other day while we were in Ardeya area and decided to pass by restaurants there. It was hilarious the amount of restaurants and cafes named over social media channels, some of them even named on popular TV shows! Just a few minutes of driving and we found 3 notable places.
There was the Snap Cafe, which one of my Snapchat followers told me has a weird tasting Shisha, I don’t smoke so I wouldn’t know. Then there’s the Instagram Cafe, which does not look appealing at all. Well, obviously a restaurant named over a social media channel is the last place I want to eat in anyway.
Then finally, there’s the Hashtag Restaurant. I remember there was Hashtag Burger restaurant in Kuwait City but it shut down, I didn’t like it anyway. If you don’t frequent my blog, I’ve also written about other social media channels [here] and[here].
An Italian friend finally opened his restaurant, remember those super delicious authentic cannolis made in Quot Market? It was done by him and his wife and now they’ve opened up their dessert shop with plans to launch a set menu of Italian cuisine. I highly recommend you try their cannolis if you haven’t already, I will post a full review soon.

One of my favourite burger joints, which I’ve listed on my top 3 burger places in Kuwait is finally expanding, they’re now opening in Salmiya, Gulf Street in a new mall beside Symphony. They haven’t announced it on their channels, I was hoping to find out their opening date, maybe February next year?
I’ve been learning how to speak Japanese for a while now and I’m so glad I committed to learning this language, it’s a lot of fun to learn and I’ve always wanted to learn Japanese for two reasons:
1. I’ve been watching animes for around two decades now, so Japanese words are well instilled in my brain, except I didn’t know what they mean. I’ve always wanted to watch Japanese animes without looking at subtitles.
2. The Japanese culture, lifestyle and food have always fascinated me, traveling to Japan whilst also speaking their language will be amazing.
So I’m looking for Japanese speakers in Kuwait (preferably native speakers), maybe we can have a bi-monthly hang-out, have coffee and learn from each other. We can have other people that are learning Japanese and just have fun hangouts.
I’ve finished my intermediate course and now moving to the masterclass course (only speaking), but my vocabulary is still relatively low, which is where talking to Japanese speakers really helps expand my volcab.
If you’re a Japanese speaker or are learning Japanese and is interested in bi-monthly/weekly hangouts contact me [here]
