Two days ago it rained pretty heavily in Kuwait and in some areas it rained hail which I posted a picture of but, I just found a video on YouTube showing one area (South Jaleeb) that got hit by hail so hard it actually looked like it snowed.

Buzberry has some pictures which you can see [Here]

Cheese Cake Factory at Caribou Coffee

Post by Mark

A friend of mine told me the other day that Caribou Coffee got the rights to Cheese Cake Factory cheese cakes in the Middle East and today I got an email confirming this. In total, Caribou Coffee will be bringing in 15 different types of cakes. They will be introducing this partnership on April 6 at the Kuwait City branch (next to Johnny Rocket’s across from Salhiya). The slice of cake will be priced at KD1.950.

Thanks David!

Note: The cheese cakes are currently available at Caribou Coffee but I guess the official launch is April 6..

Update: 4thringroad posted it first [Here]

Blossom’s Bakery

Post by Mark

A friend of mine got a hold of some cupcakes by Blossom’s Bakery and I think they’re the best cupcakes I’ve had so far. Sadly I understood she no longer takes orders or delivers but you can still check out her blog for a ton of pictures of some really great looking cupcakes. [Link]

GTFO?

Post by Mark

A few people emailed me a link to this video on YouTube where two AIS school teachers trash Kuwait. Judging by the viewers comments the two teachers should probably go into hiding. [YouTube]

Thanks to everyone who emailed this in.

Update: Video has been removed from YouTube

Nissan 370z for sale on Q8car

Post by Mark

Asking price? A ridiculous KD20,000! You could probably buy two from eBay for that price and ship them to Kuwait (ok maybe not two but still) or just wait until the local dealer gets them and sells them for around KD11,000. [Link]

Planet Hollywood opening in Kuwait

Post by Mark

I found out today that Planet Hollywood will be opening in the basement of the Olympia towers in Salmiya at the end of summer. The only good thing that might come out of this is if Sylvester Stallone comes for the opening and I stalk him until he agrees to take a picture with me.

Update: Turns out The Noodle House is also opening in Olympia in June.

The artsy side to Mishref

I first spotted this on Some Contrast and then this weekend I ended up driving by it on the way to Marzouqs place so I decided to stop and take a picture of it with my Yashica. If you want to see the previous artwork that was on display there click [Here]

Timelapse Video Camera

Post by Mark

This camera takes pictures anywhere from once every five seconds to once every 24 hours and then combines them all into a single high resolution video. The weather-resistant camera comes with 2GB of storage enough for up to 18,000 shots while the cameras battery lasts up to 4 months shooting one picture every hour. Its made to use in your garden but I can think of a million other uses and at $159 its pretty cheap. [Link]

Update: Its available on Amazon for cheaper, only $139 [Amazon]
