Volvo over a Ferrari Modena

Post by Mark

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]

Who has the biggest brain?

Post by Mark

Who has the brain

I joined Facebook yesterday, I didn’t want to but I noticed there was someone else with my exact same name so I figured I should create an account so my friends didn’t think the other guy was me or something. I figured I wouldn’t add any friends to my account, I just wanted very little presence on Facebook. Somehow that plan fell apart and I ended up adding everyone. Anyway I’ve started playing this stupid game called “Who has the biggest brain?” and now I’m addicted. It took me less than 24 hours to turn into a facebook cliché. I can’t stop playing this stupid game!

Flying Kites in Kuwait

Post by Mark

My second video of the day. This one is of some really large kites flying in Kuwait but the video is very trippy because of the music and the way some of the kites feel like living organisms. [YouTube]

Emergency Jump Starter

Post by Mark

Porta Jump

This device seems too good to be true. Its an emergency jump starter which you plug it into you lighter socket when the car battery is dead and it would help start the car. Its a tiny device and costs only KD8 but it seems to work so I’m going to order one and just keep it in my car for emergencies. [Link]

New bike or not to bike

Post by Mark

Ducati 999

I’m having mixed thoughts about riding recently. I like riding my bike to work, I like riding it to the super market or to Hawalli whenever I need to get something from Rihab or Ibn Khaldoon street and I like riding it whenever I am bored and have nothing else to do. Problem is the weather in Kuwait is terrible. This year has to be the worst so far. The weather is always dusty and winter was pretty much non existent. I hate riding the bike in the heat because it doesn’t make sense to me, why ride to work all sweaty when I could drive to work with my AC on?

Now though I’ve also gotten pretty bored of my bike. Last year when I had just started riding I was thinking about how fast my bike was and now this year since I’ve started riding a lot more I’ve been thinking about how slow my bike is. This is why I passed by TriStar today who are the Ducati dealers and the place where I had gotten my bike from previously. I didn’t know what I was looking for but I think I’ve found it.

They offered me a really great deal on a brand new glossy black Ducati 999. They’ve got an excellent buy back program so they would be taking my current bike for a really good deal and I would just have to pay the difference on a new bike. I’ve always wanted the smaller version of the 999, the 749 and never considered the 999 until today. Its a brutally violent and unforgiving machine which is why I think I’m attracted to it.

But, when am I going to ride it? Its already hitting 38 degrees so riding season is nearly over and when riding season starts again end of the year it will only last for 3 months tops (ok maybe a bit more I’m spoilt). Its a gorgeous bike though that scares the living hell out of me in a good way.

Just a small commercial break here, if anyone is thinking of buying a motorbike definitely pass by TriStar. They’ve got a really large collection of new and used bikes plus they offer training. Here is a link to their website www.tristarkw.com

Burger Review: Munch

Post by Mark

Munch
The Best Burger in Kuwait Challenge
I’ve been looking forward to Munch for a while now since I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about them. Sadly, my burger experience with them wasn’t that good.

I passed by Munch today for lunch and the whole Dar Al-Awadhi mall where Munch is located was empty. It was nice and peaceful and since the mall was empty so was Munch which was great since we ended up sitting in a very cozy corner. The interior of Munch is simple yet trendy and I like their color combination of white and green. We sat down and I flipped through the menu to find a choice of two burgers, the Kobe Beef Burger and the Classic Cheese Burger. I decided to go with the Kobe since someone had posted that I should try it.

Munch Burger

I ordered my Kobe burger with swiss cheese and portobello mushrooms. The burger arrived 10 minutes later and at first glance it was disappointing. The burger looked like something I could have prepared at home. Looks aside the patty also tasted like a cheap COOP burger, if they had used the frozen Kobe burgers available at Sultan Center it would have been wayyy better. The bun also looked like the new burger buns from Kuwait Flour Mills which is very unexciting. I ate it but I wouldn’t have it again.

On a positive note the fries were great, the service was good and as I mentioned earlier the interior of the place was pretty cool. Actually service was not that good, I ordered my burger with a side order of fries and the waiter didn’t think to inform me that my burger actually came with fries. But anyway neither of these things can have an effect on the final score which is 1.5 out of 5. There really wasn’t anything great in the burger, it was also very small and just felt too home made. That can be a good thing but not when I can make a better burger myself.

Munch is located in Dar Al-Awadhi.
The cost of the Kobe Beef Burger is KD3.950
