Q8Flowers

q8flowers

I just want to introduce my new sponsor to replace Mercedes called Q8Flowers. You might remember them because I posted about them back in November. I had ordered flowers for Nataly from them since they were the only flower shop in Kuwait where I could place an order and pay for it online. If you haven’t checked them out you can do so by visiting their website located at www.q8flowers.com

Back from The Avenues

Posted by Mark

Just got back from The Avenues and its pretty big. The place looks cooler then Marina Mall and I counted at least 5 Starbucks, 2 Boots, 2 H&M’s and 2 The Body Shops. A lot of stores are still closed but its still worth a visit.

Bershka

bershka

I just found out Bershka is opening in The Avenues on March 13th. I am not a big fan of Bershka, Nat is, but the interesting thing to note here is the opening date. If Bershka is opening on the 13th then I am guessing The Avenues is opening either before or on that same day.

update: Launch pushed back till the 18th.

2007 Jeep Wrangler Prices

Posted by Mark

new wrangler

I passed in front of the Jeep dealer yesterday and noticed they had the new redesigned Wranglers on display. Since they were closed due to the holiday I called them up first thing today morning. I spoke to a salesman and he told me they had just received the Wranglers and they didn’t have any prices yet. He took my number down and promised he would call me as soon as they did. Later in the day I got a call back and this is what I found out.

Wrangler Sport – 2 doors
Price: KD7,399

Wrangler Sahara – 4 doors
Price: KD8,799

I find these prices too high but Jeep ALWAYS overprices their new cars.

The ONE Sale

Posted by Mark

my new couch

The ONE furniture store in Marina Mall started their sale today. The first day is invite only and Nat was able to get an invite so we decided to pass by. The invite said that the “private” event starts at 6:30 and we got there right on time. When we parked the car Nat started walking fast towards The ONE, I told her to slow down since its not like there was going to be a long line of people waiting to go in like you would find outside Walmart on the morning of Black Friday.

We got to the entrance and as I expected it was empty, but once we walked in it was a completely different story. It was just chaos! We could barely move and everyone was rushing around and pushing and shoving. We quickly started walking around looking for stuff to get. We found this couch that looked cool and selling for like KD119 after discount but while we were deciding if we wanted it or not someone came and bought it. We then quickly scrambled around looking for another couch. Finally we found one lying on a top shelf and priced only KD97 after discount. We quickly found an employee and told them we needed two. We then went down to the cashier area to pay and there was a really long line there. It was extremely unorganized and believe it or not the biggest problem was the lack of enough shopping carts and baskets.

Anyway we paid for the two couches and we also got a dresser for the bedroom. Now we are hoping the couch will turn out to be comfortable and the size not too big. We couldn’t try the couch nor check the size because it was parked on the top shelf. We also didn’t want to spend too much time thinking about it because we didn’t want someone else to buy it instead. We were lucky even since there were only 2 in stock, one on display and one in storage.

They are supposed to deliver the couches on Sunday, once they do will take pictures and share them here. I really hope they turn out to be cool.

Aramex slowdown

Posted by Mark

Marzouq posted the other day about how slow Aramex has been lately. Well I wanted to share my experience with USWS which for some reason I thought would also be slow. On Friday morning my package arrived in my US mailbox. Late Friday night I get an SMS telling me my package shipped. Today morning I arrived to find my package on my desk. Turned out it was delivered to my office yesterday after I left work. It took 3 days from the US to Kuwait. Thats fast.

My item was a Western Digital 500GB hard drive. Its my first USB 2.0 drive (other then my passport drive). All my main external drives are firewire but since I ran out of firewire ports and the USB 2.0 version is much cheaper I decided to get it. The drive cost me $170 from Amazon and Marzouq has a review on it. The drive arrived just in time because I only had 4GB of space left. Now the total of my hard drives add up to 1.7TB.
