Free Candy

Posted by Mark

Some guys in Kuwait figured out how to get free candy from a vending machine. In short, shake the hell out of the machine. Pretty silly but funny video.

I Love Muchboos Deyay

Posted by Mark

I was checking a blog called Truth or Dare Q8 when I found a post on t-shirts with the following messages on them:

I love GzZz
Queen of GzZz
Sushi Lover from Kuwait
I love Bniader
I love Muchboos Deyay
I love 7adaag
I love Gahwa
I love Chai 7aleeb
I hate Dawaam
I hate Rejeem
3zooby & lovin’ it!

I thought they were pretty funny so I emailed the owner for some pictures of the shirts since I was curious to how they looked like. The owner emailed me back with the pictures so I thought I would share them with everyone.

The store is called Truth or Dare and is owned by a young Kuwaiti female. Its located in Beit el Mazar which I think is in the same block as Casper & Gambini is in Kuwait City behind the Church. You can check out her blog by clicking [Here]

1988 Kuwait Airways Hijacking

Posted by Mark

In 1988 a Kuwait Airways Boeing was hijacked and diverted to Algiers while on its way to Kuwait from Bangkok. The hijacking lasted 16 days and ended with a Naval Officer from the Kuwaiti Royal Family being killed along with another Kuwaiti military person. The Algerian authorities allowed the hijackers to escape in exchange for the remainder of the 110 people aboard to be set free. (Wikipedia)

This is a video sporty4ever uploaded on to YouTube which is of the plane returning back to Kuwait after the hijacking.

Has anyone tried the recently opened Burger Bar in Kuwait City? I haven’t been to it yet but I heard they had a soft opening and the place is located next to Holiday Inn downtown.

Favorite Watches

Posted by Mark

Here are a couple of cool watches that I like and their prices in Kuwait:


Part of the Bvlgari Ergon line, it comes in two models, with and without the chronograph… but I prefer it with. The case is made of steel, the bracelet is a steel and rubber combo while the dial is made from black carbon fiber. Only the non-chrono version is on display in Kuwait but you can order the chrono version and its priced at around KD1,500.

Bvlgari
Location: Salhiya Complex.
Telephone: 2415360


The Panerai Luminor Chrono Daylight is definitely my favorite Panerai watch ever made. Sadly though its no longer available in Kuwait and according to the dealer you can’t even order it. Its a big watch made from steel and the diameter of the dial is 44mm. The price when available was around KD3,300.

Panerai
Location: Salhiya Complex.
Telephone: 2421907


Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. The most expensive of the three coming in at KD7,000 for the steel version and KD7,500 for the titanium model. This is the ultimate watch to get. Its both classy and sporty at the same time and its distinctive octagon face makes the watch recognizable from a mile away. The dealer does offer a 25% discount which brings the price down to a mid sized car.

Audemars Piguet
Location: Salhiya Complex.
Telephone: 2441716

In-N-Out Burger

Posted by Mark

in-n-out

I have heard a lot about In-N-Out Burger from my friends, everyone who’s tried it tells me that they have the best burgers in the world. I just found this article on Laughing Squid which talks about why it has such a cult following. There is even a picture of their 100 patty, 19,490 calorie burger. We really need more burger places in Kuwait, Wendy’s and A&W should seriously reopen. [Link]
