Starscream

Posted by Mark

my bike on the truck

Yesterday night Tristar came and picked up my bike so they could install my new slip-ons. While the bike was being put on the truck I realized I still haven’t come up with a name for the bike. So after some thinking I have decided to call my bike Starscream.

Little Treats

Posted by Mark

mini cupcakes

A friend of mine called me up yesterday after reading my post on Juju and recommended I try Little Treats if I was looking for the best cup cakes in Kuwait. I found out about Little Treats a week ago since someone emailed me the link to their website but I hadn’t tried them yet. According to my friend he ordered cupcakes from both Juju’s and Little Treats and he found Little Treats much better. Only problem is Little Treats don’t deliver. I will give them a call today and I think I will order a mixture of Oreo and Fudge It cupcakes, the combination sounds pretty cool. [Little Treats]

Black Sheep

black sheep

This is the FUNNIEST trailer I think I have ever watched. I couldn’t stop laughing, I actually had to wipe my tears after I finished cuz I cracked up so much. The movie is coming out at the end of the month and its a horror spoof about sheep in New Zealand turning evil. You have to watch the trailer. [Link]

The Chili Dog Showdown

Posted by Mark

Nathans or Hardees, which of the two has the better chili dog?

THE NATHANS CHILI DOG
Chili Hot Dog Nathans

THE HARDEES CHILI DOG
Chili Hot Dog Hardees

PRICE
Nathans Chili Dog: 750 fils
Hardees Chili Dog: 500 fils

SIZE
Both Hardees and Nathans have similarly sized hot dogs. The Nathans is just slightly bigger but not by that much.

LOOKS
Hardees looks visually more attractive and colorful while the Nathans hot dog looks dull and stale.

SPEED
Nathans hot dogs take longer then Hardees to prepare. I ordered my hot dog from Nathans Souk Sharq then I went to Hardees ordered a hot dog, I picked it up and went back to Nathans and my hot dog was still not ready. Also while waiting at Nathans I had to stand there listening to the manager making fun out of people who pass him. He’s an idiot.

TASTE
Nathans Chili Dog: The chili is terrible and the onions tasteless. The hot dogs meat itself is tastier then the Hardees meat but everything else tasted bad. I even ordered a plain hot dog with just ketchup and mustard and I don’t know what ketchup they use but its one of the worst tasting ones I have ever tried. A real mess seriously.

Hardees Chili Dog: Although the actual hot dog itself tastes a bit better at Nathans, the chili used at Hardees is much better and the mustard and onions are also better tasting. Even the bread feels softer and fresher.

CONCLUSION
I believe the Hardees Chili Dog is a better hot dog overall. Firstly it costs 50% less then the Nathans one Nathans hot dog costs 50% more. Its also visually more attractive, quicker to order and in general is a better tasting hot dog. I would not have a Nathans hot dog again, not unless they get better ingredients.

Review: Naifs Puri Fillet

Posted by Mark

Puri Fillet

I heard a lot of stories about this sandwich and they were mostly horror stories but never the less I wanted to try it for myself. Awhile ago I ordered some food from Naif and one of the items was the infamous Puri Fillet. The Puri Fillet is fried chicken with cheese, lettuce and mayonnaise wrapped in puri bread. Puri is deep fried bread for those of you who don’t know.

So deep friend chicken plus deep fried bread and you get a three million calorie sandwich. Its so greasy its suicidal. I swear after I finished the sandwich I felt like I had doubled my weight.

The final score, 0 out of 5. This sandwich is for people who ride motorbikes wearing flip flops and no helmet.

Marzouq Lost

Posted by Mark

jack bauer

I was waiting for Marzouq to post about this but he hasn’t still so I am going to post about it first… although it is HIS story.

Today I got an email from Marzouq and he sounded really pissed and depressed. He was vague in his email but it was something about losing a really important bid. I was like fuck, what was he bidding for? I figured something related to work, maybe he was trying to get the rights to Google Kuwait or some fast food chain or something. Anyway a few hours later he gives me a call.

We are talking and he tells me about this charity auction that took place in the US and how they were auctioning off a variety of items like electronics, snowmobiles etc.. I was thinking he probably tried bidding on a limited edition motorbike and he lost. Then he tells me that one of the items they were auctioning off was the chance to appear on an episode of 24 next season! Whoever won the auction would have a role on the show in season 7 and would also get to meet the whole cast and then leave with the episode script autographed by everyone. So I was like ok what happened??

Turns out he had a friend at the auction who was bidding in his place. He told his friend to bid max up to $10,000. Turns out though he had a tough competitor, some wife of a millionaire who according to Marzouqs friend came up to him and told him she wanted to have Jack Bauers babies. She kept bidding against him until past his $10,000 limit. In the end he increased his max bid till he hit around $16,000 but she kept bidding until in the end she won the auction for $21,000.

Its such an insane thing, imagine, a blogger from Kuwait would have been on 24. I would have been really jealous if he had won, but it sucks he didn’t. I know how much it would have meant to him being on the show. Anyway I think he is going to be pissed now because I posted about HIS experience before he did!

This reminds me of when King Abdullah appeared on Startrek.

update: Here is a link to Marzouqs post with more details! [Link]

Termignoni Exhaust Pipes

Posted by Mark

termignoni

Marzouq just posted about the great service he has been having with Tristar so I figured I would post about what happened with me. Last Saturday I passed by and ordered Termignoni carbon racing silencers for my motorbike and I was told I would receive them in 2 to 3 weeks. Yesterday I got a phone call telling me to pass by and pick up my silencers since they had arrived! I called the Tristar garage today morning so that tomorrow they can pass by and pick up my bike so they can install the silencers. Really great service. Also I found out that anyone can join their bike club not only people who purchased bikes from them, so if you are a biker and are looking for weekly activities give them a call.

Jujus Cupcake

Posted by Mark

juju

Today I got a long rectangular box with a dozen cupcakes from a new place that opened up in Fanar called Juju’s Cupcake. All the cupcakes looked stunning and within seconds they disappeared. Everyone just wanted one. I don’t have any idea on the prices and although the box has a website address, jujuscupcake.com, the website is still not up. If you are interested though you can call them on 5722999.
