Gulf Bank Flash Mob

Someone should have an intervention with Gulf Bank before they release a Harlem Shake video next. Flash mobs are so 2009. [YouTube]

Watch the Air Show online

Posted by Mark

If you missed the air show on Friday you didn’t really miss much from what I heard. But, if you wish you had watched the air show you can do so online since someone uploaded a video of it. Not very exciting. [YouTube]

Torch Sport & Health Exhibition

Posted by Mark

torchumami

I found out about Torch today by coincidence from a friend who’s taking part in the exhibition. It’s being held at the Kuwait International Fairground starting from today until the 17th. I passed by the exhibition awhile ago and I’m not really sure what to make of it.

The hall the exhibition is being held in is fairly large but the majority of the space is taken up by a fake green field which none of the vendors I spoke to seemed to know what it was for.

torch1

Most of the vendors at the exhibition were for healthy food products and most were selling their products at retail cost. I just didn’t understand the purpose of it since you could find the same products at Sultan Center and SaveCo instead of driving all the way to the fairgrounds. At events like this food vendors should consider running some kind of promotion in a bid to gain new customers.

If you’re into fitness and sports then pass by the event like I did just to check it out. Just don’t go with high expectations.

Coma Chocolate Pudding

Posted by Mark

coma

I had been wanting to try this dessert ever since I saw pictures of it floating around Instagram but I didn’t get the chance to until now. The dessert is called the Coma Chocolate Pudding and is served at the Dikakeen restaurant in Salhiya M2. It’s basically a chocolate pudding dessert with a KDD sandwich ice cream shoved in the middle.

The dessert takes 20 minutes to prepare which is a good sign since it means they bake it fresh. Sadly though the dessert looked better than it tasted since I thought it was flavorless. But, if you’re a fan of the KDD ice cream sandwich (who isn’t really) then it’s worth trying out.

Bilbayt – An Online Catering Portal

Posted by Mark

bilbayt

Bilbayt is a new local website that just recently launched that makes it easy to discover and order catering online. The way it works is simple, you go to the website, pick the date and time you want catering and then you’ll get a list of available caterers. If you choose Johnny Rockets for example you get two options to choose from, a Johnny Rockets Live Station and a Johnny Rockets “Kids” Live Station. If you click the regular Live Station you get the details plus the price which is KD125 for 15 people. You can then proceed to increase the amount of people you want them to cater for and the price will update accordingly. You can then proceed to checkout and pay either by Knet, credit card or cash on delivery. It’s a fairly easy and simple to use website.

As of this post they have 16 caterers on the website including Magnolia Bakery, Upper Crust Pizza and even Shawerma Shuwaikh. You can check out the website by visiting bilbayt.com

Eight Restaurant has a New Look

Posted by Mark

eight

Eight is a restaurant that is open across the street from Arraya Complex in Kuwait City. It opened up over a year ago but I never ate there because the design of the place looked so dark and gloomy. But, today while walking by it I noticed they’ve completely redecorated the place and it’s now so much more brighter and better looking. I still haven’t tried it out but I did quickly flip through the menu and I might end up going back for their sweet potato and brisket dish. For now I thought I’d just mention the facelift since it’s such a major improvement.

Kuwait Towers New Light Show

Posted by Mark

I was on my way to the gym earlier tonight when I noticed a dazzling new light show being tested out on one of the towers. It looks really cool especially as you’re driving by it on the Gulf Road. I was going to say it’s probably for Hala February thinking it starts next month but then I remembered Hala February is actually Hala January since it started last week. While we are on the subject of Hala January, why isn’t there an English version of the website? [YouTube]
