caramel

Caramel is a romantic comedy based on the daily lives of four Lebanese women. The movie premiered during the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and since then has been sold to over 30 countries. It premiers on August 14th in France and I might be there on business so I am going to try my best to watch it. For now the trailer is on YouTube and it’s a really long trailer like 5 minutes long. There is also a website for the movie and a lot more info on Wikipedia. It looks like its going to be a good one.

Looking for an affordable digital camera?

Posted by Mark

canon

If yes then I have to recommend the Canon PowerShot A550. I have the older version and I keep it in my car and use it as my everyday point and shoot camera. The camera is 7.1MP and has a lot of features including full manual control and uses regular AA batteries which makes it practical when traveling. Now here is the best part, the camera is now on sale at Amazon.com and costs only $128!! Thats KD36 which is REALLY CHEAP. [Amazon Link]

I understand why cleavage or nudity is usually covered with a black marker, but covering this man completely from head to toe I don’t understand…

Tarsheed

Posted by Mark

I was checking out one of those “Tarsheed” fliers that they are giving out at malls when I found a funny mistake.

First point they tell you to adjust the A/C to 30 degrees and set it on AUTO mode. Sounds reasonable but then the third point they tell you to turn off the A/C. So which one is it? Do I put it on AUTO or do I turn it off?

update:
Some commenter’s are saying in the first point they are talking about central A/C while in third point they are talking about split units. That doesn’t make it any less funnier because no one will get what they meant.
