Milk Milk Milk

Sultan Center have introduced some new milk products which I spotted yesterday. They now have Mars, Starburst, Maltesers and Nesquik flavored milk. Their prices though are outrageous, the Mars milk costs KD2.150, the Starburst KD1.950, the Nesquik KD1.550 and finally the cheapest was Maltesers at KD1.450.

The Day the Earth Stood Still

This remake of the 1950’s classic by the same name looks like its going to be one hell of a movie although I am really fed up of Keanu Reeves. Like come on who can still stand his Matrix voice and look?? On the other hand Jennifer Connelly still looks as hot as ever. [Trailer]

Good Food: Egypt

Post by Mark

Four Seasons Burger

Food wise there were only two things that stuck out for me in Cairo. The first is the burger at the Four Seasons, the second is the spicy chicken fillet at McDonalds.

When I first had the burger at the Four Seasons tea lounge in Cairo (opposite the Zoo), it came with blue cheese which I thought overpowered the burger. So when I went to have it the second time I asked them to replace the blue cheese with cheddar and it made a world of difference. The burger turned out to be great and if I was to rate it I would probably give it anywhere between 3.5 and a 4 out of a 5. Highly recommended. (Burger picture above)

The spicy chicken fillet at McDonalds was another surprise. I don’t know why we don’t have it here in Kuwait but we should since we’re missing out on a great chicken sandwich. Unlike the McChicken, the spicy chicken fillet kinda looks like Burger King’s Chicken Royale but tastes like KFC’s chicken Zinger. So basically its the best of both worlds and honestly everything else I had in McDonalds in Cairo tasted terrible so the chicken fillet is the only way to go.

And that’s about it, there wasn’t anything else I had in Cairo that stuck out.

Official pictures of the new 4-door Porsche Panamera are out and the car still looks as ugly as the original spy shots. [Link]

The strongest man in Egypt

Post by Mark

Sayyed Muhammad Ahmad Abdallah got married 28 times and has 35 kids. Medical tests have proven that his strength equals 260 horsepower and he has the strength of 30,000 men. He can bend a metal coin with his eye socket but lucky for us he only uses his powers for good. And one more thing, he hasn’t slept since the day he was born! [YouTube]

Two guys jumped off Burj Dubai back in May and they filmed the whole experience. They didn’t get caught the first time but a few days after their first jump one of the guys went back and jumped again and ended up getting caught. [Link]

Khan el-Khalili and more

Post by Mark

Khan el-Khalili

Last night I passed by Khan el-Khalili. I had briefly passed by it on my first day but figured it was worth a second visit. I honestly found Khan el-Khalili boring but it got more interesting the further I walked away from it. I walked through Khan el-Khalili and into another larger market and then crossed over a pedestrian bridge into another market until I got to the old opera. The walk reminded me of Oxford Street since it was long, packed with people and there was lots to see. I took a ton of pictures, below are 10 I like. Click on continue below to see them.
