There was a horrific accident on the Gulf Road today. The car was completely crushed and the car was lying upside down. I hope the driver made it.

When the wind blows

Post by Mark

Two days ago during the brief freak storm we had, the wooden paneling covering up the ESPRIT store at Avenues got blown away. A reader was there and took pictures which you can see above and below. The ESPRIT store is the one that burned down a few months back.

Kuwaiti perfume bottle collector tries for world record

Post by Mark

At least he isn’t collecting burgers:

A citizen of Kuwait has applied to Guinness World Records for his collection of over 5,000 perfume bottles to be recognized as a world record, the Kuna news agency reported on Monday.

An astronomer by profession, Adel Al-Sadoun started collecting perfume bottles some 15 years ago, as he was charmed by the unique design created by perfume companies for their fragrances.

After gaining national fame for his unusual hobby, his collection was expanded by bottles given to him by friends and well-wishers. Some of the items are around 100 years old. [Source]

Thanks Jacob

First Impression: Oral B Triumph 9900 Toothbrush with Smart Guide

Post by Mark

Yeah its a long name but it helps with the geek factor. I’ve been wanting the Oral B Triumph for some time now but the local dealer never got the one I wanted which comes with the Smart Guide.

What is the Smart Guide? The Smart Guide is the little device that’s pictured above. Your toothbrush connects to it wirelessly and transmits various information about your brushing technique to help you brush properly while also making it more fun. First off it tells you how much time to spend on each quadrant of your teeth before shifting to the next one. It also tells you if you’re applying the right amount of pressure onto your teeth or gums by flashing a warning when it thinks you’re being too rough. Finally and most importantly, when you are done brushing correctly you get a smiley face on the Smart Guide as a reward. The live feedback system while brushing made me want the Triumph since I like information even if its coming from a toothbrush.

The price of the regular Triumph is KD42 in Kuwait after discount but it DOESN’T come with the Smart Guide. On Amazon the Triumph WITH the Smart Guide is for only KD34. I picked up the KD50 special edition version which comes with 2 tooth brushes and 2 Smart Guides, one for me and one for Nat which saved me a bundle. Will post a more in depth review once I get to use it for awhile.

Red Bull cola in Kuwait

Post by Mark

Sultan Center now has Red Bull cola but as I’ve mentioned before, it tastes like crap. It costs 390 fils which you could use instead to buy a shani, KDD Silver ice cream and a Sunkist.
