Dean & Deluca Avenues

Dean & Deluca Avenues

I passed by Avenues for lunch and couldn’t find signs of any kind of fight that took place. What I did find was the location of the upcoming Dean & Deluca store. Its right in front of Häagen-Dazs. Interesting fact, did you know that Häagen-Dazs is actually an American brand? It’s not Scandinavian, its simply two made-up words that was meant to look Scandinavian to the American eyes. Here is more info on the Häagen-Dazs name. [Link]

Avenues

My friend just called to tell me they shut down the Avenues awhile ago for emergency reasons. A huge fight broke out which grew out of control and some stores got damaged and supposedly there is blood everywhere.

My Sushi KW experience

Post by Mark

Sushi KW

I called up Sushi KW around 1PM and placed my order to be delivered at 4:30. I ordered the Spicy Shrimp, Snow, TamTam, Mix Maki, Salmon Sushi and Crab Sushi.

My order arrived on time which was cool since I was starving. The packaging was decent and came with soy sauce, a spicy mayo dip, ginger and chopsticks. I quickly chowed my way through everything but when I was done I wasn’t impressed. From the bunch I ordered I think Snow was the worst while everything else tasted just average. The price is cheap, the whole thing cost me only KD11.250 but I would rather pay a bit more and get something from Wasabi instead.

Long Term Parking Question

Post by Mark

long term parking

So let me get this straight. Parking your car for five days at the airports long term parking costs KD10 (KD2 a day). Now if I park my car there for twenty days and then lose my card do I also end up paying only KD10? Is that why the parking is always full and there are a ton of cars that look like they’ve been parked there for months?

5th Ring Road Drama

Post by Mark

Hostage

Yesterday someone emailed me and asked me if I had heard about what happened on the 5th Ring Road and today morning someone at the office also asked me the same thing. What I understood is that a guy pulled out a gun on his wife and they had to stop traffic. Anyone know what really happened? (if there was actually an incident)

Update: Its in some of the papers including Al Rai where the picture above was taken from. Here is the link to the article. [News Article]

My Pirelli Problem Solved

Post by Mark

Z4 at Pirelli

Just an update to my problem with Pirelli. I passed by the main Pirelli branch in Al-Rai today near Ace Hardware. It was my first time there and the main branch is wayyyy nicer than the Canada Dry street one. I chatted with the manager for a bit and he explained to me how they train their employees really well and how customer satisfaction is very important to them. He apologized for the mess up and told me they would replace all four tires with P Zero Run-Flats which are the original tires I had asked for. He was a really friendly guy and the next time I need anything from Pirelli I would definitely go back to this branch and not the Canada Dry one. Glad this got solved quickly.
