toplexil

Ok this isn’t a serious post but something I was thinking about today. My favorite tasting cough medicine has to be Toplexil and I was thinking maybe I should start reviewing different cough syrups. Of course thats not going to happen.

White 848

I stopped by the TriStar dealer to drop off my new wheels to get painted since they have their own in house paint shop. While there I spotted the really really really sexy pearl white Ducati 848. I think its the hottest looking bike out there at the moment.

Picon and Smeds in Kuwait

Post by Mark

Picon & Smeds

This post is for the Lebanese in Kuwait. I found this place next to my house called Toot that sells Picon and Smeds cheese. The Picon is 550fils for a small pack while the Smeds is for KD1.250.

Toot is located in Salmiya, if Jeita is on your right hand side keep going straight and take the right after Maroosh. Then keep going straight and you should see the place in your right hand side under the hotel.

Emirates A380

Emirates Airlines will be offering in flight showers this autumn but there is a catch. If you want to take a hot shower mid flight it will cost you $18,000! Not a bad deal if you are a gazillionaire… [Link]

My wheels are here!

Post by Mark

wrangler trunk

Ten days ago I placed an order for five steel Cragar wheels for my Wrangler from Quadratec and today they got delivered to me. They would have gotten here sooner but they were out of stock and had to wait till Quadratec received a new batch. As I mentioned previously, the five wheels cost me KD57 combined, shipping them to Kuwait cost me KD94 and I just paid KD22 for customs. So after shipping and customs each wheel ended up costing me nearly KD35 which isn’t that bad.

Now I need to have the wheels painted matt black since they’re currently glossy black and have blue and red retro looking lines. I will probably have AutoTech in Shuwaikh do that since they will be installing my suspension lift once it arrives.

Update: Just dropped my wheels off at TriStar to get painted since they gave me a price that was 70% cheaper than AutoTech. It should get done in 2 days and then I will have the tires mounted.

Event: Eb Beiti, Aana Geezi

Post by Mark

Found out about this exhibit through Facebook:

The essence of living in an urban environment is the forced interaction between people of different social backgrounds, outlooks etc. In Kuwait, where pedestrian culture is nonexistent, people are trapped, encapsulated in bubbles: in walled-off homes, cars, diwaniyas and beach houses. Chronic boredom is rampant. Music video channels, for example, are mushrooming due to their role as a platform for anonymous public communication. Confessions of love and notes of introduction appear as scrolling text messages at the bottom of TV screens. Cruising is a lifestyle, where the geezi, the young, idle male, is the ultimate cruiser. What this show proposes is that everyone is a geezi, by cruising through the filters of the internet, TV, cellphone-to-cellphone Bluetooth technology and other forms of indirect contact.

A group show featuring the work of Khalid Al Gharaballi, Fatima Al Qadiri, Tareq Al Sultan, Bassem Mansour, Monira Al Qadiri, Lauren Boyle and The Bruce High-Quality Foundation.

Curated by Fatima Al Qadiri and Khalid Al Gharaballi.

Volvo over a Ferrari Modena

When I read the title of the video I didn’t think they literally meant a Volvo over a Modena. This happened on the Gulf Road. [YouTube]

Pimp My Eiffel Tower

Post by Mark

For the Eiffel Tower’s upcoming 120th Anniversary, a new extended observation tower will be added to the top floor. It seems a design competition was held a while back and the architecture group Serero won with the design above. I think it looks pretty cool, very futuristic and alien like. [Link]
