This is not Carrefour Kuwait

Post by Mark

A video has been circulating by email and blogs showing a rat in the meat fridge in Carrefour Kuwait. Other than the fact there is nothing in the video thats proves its Carrefour or that it is in Kuwait, there are a couple of other copies of the exact same video circulating on YouTube that say the video was shot in Al-Ajman or Dubai.

So basically it definitely didn’t happen in Kuwait and it might not have happened at Carrefour or even in the UAE. [YouTube]

Warehouse deals

A friend of mine just made me aware of an Amazon website called Warehouse Deals in which they sell open-box, refurbished or slightly damaged merchandise from Amazon.com at huge discounts. I’ve just flipped through the site briefly and looks like there is a good bunch of deals. [Link]

First flashmob in Kuwait?

Post by Mark

Some students at the French School of Kuwait attempted to all freeze at the same time a la “Frozen Grand Central” except the result didn’t turn out that good really. At least they tried, maybe the next one will be better. Forward to around 4 minutes into the video, thats when they freeze. [YouTube]

Thanks Yass

Bavarian Food

Post by Mark

One of my favorite things about Munich was the food. I was eating non stop through out the day since their food is very hard to resist although it would be easy for the majority of you since most of their dishes are pork based. I took pictures of my dishes whenever I could and if you click on continue below you could see some of them. As you can see most are sausages with potato salad. The one above was taken at the Augustiner Beer Garden.

PUMA RS 100 INJEX

PUMA Injex

I hate Crocs because they look funny but I always wanted something similar for the beach. While in Munich I found an excellent alternative, the PUMA RS 100 INJEX. Pretty long but cooling looking name for what essentially is foam injected into a shoe mold. Its very comfy and much cooler looking than the Crocs. At $35 they are very cheap. [Link]

Munich through my Nikon FE

Post by Mark

Munich 2008

I took my Nikon FE with me to Munich as I mentioned before I traveled. The camera is nearly 30 years old and the pictures I shot with the camera also look like they are nearly 30 years old. It’s an amazing effect and I have really fallen in love with this camera. I loved carrying the heavy weight around and then manually focusing on a shot before snapping it. I took 91 pictures in total but here is a link to my favorite ones. Notice it even made the very modern BMW World look 30 years old. [Pictures]

The Second Chance

Aramex

I’ve been hearing a lot of positive stuff about Aramex’s Shop & Ship service lately. K.thekuwaiti keeps telling me how he keeps getting everything really quickly and SomeContrast posted the other day that you can now even pay with Knet on delivery. I had a lot of problems with Aramex before which I made very clear on this blog but it seems they’ve improved a lot since then so I’ve decided to try them out again.

So far the experience has been positive. I called Aramex up on the new hotline number and I was instantly able to get a hold of customer service, something that was impossible to do when I last used them since their lines used to be always busy. I will try them out for my next few shipments and post my experience with them here on the blog. Looks promising so far.

New Q8car Site

New Q8car

Q8car have a beta version of their new site online now and although it seems better than their previous one it still needs a lot of work. For one thing the site seems a bit sluggish probably because of the amount of flash on the site but at least they’re still testing it out so thats a good thing. Here is a link to the beta site.
