Farah selling cat meat shawerma?

Posted by Mark

Someone emailed me telling me that the ministry shut down the Jahra branch of the Farah restaurant because it turned out they were catching street cats and using their meat for their shawerma. Today this news is in the papers and here is a link to an article from Al Rai Al Aam newspaper. [Link]

I think thats kinda sick but I am still curious to know if they were trying to pass it on as chicken or beef? I am also wondering what I would have rated it if I had tried it…

Thanks Afterstorm

IMPORTANT: Just a note, the article doesn’t mention Farah, the person who sent me the article said it was Farah.

Good deals

Posted by Mark

The Forum on this blog has a “For Sale” section where users place items they want to sell and other users in the forum can bid on them. There have been a lot of good deals in the forum recently for example, a nearly new Xbox 360 with 13 games, extra pads, and even an extra hard drive got sold for KD200, I personally purchased an excellent condition Apple G4 iBook for KD90, and just a while ago someone sold their 1 month old 4GB iPod nano for just KD30.

If you haven’t checked out the forum yet you should. Its a great place to meet people and there are a ton of things for sale there. Here is the link. [Forum]

Lion on the run in Kuwait

paw print

I just heard there is a lion loose in Kuwait. It seems it escaped from a Sheikhs residence in the Fintas area and now the cops are trying to catch it.

You need good headphones

Posted by Mark

sennheiser

A lot of people have iPods and a lot of people listen to them using the white earbuds that came in the box. The earbuds look pretty but really aren’t doing your music any justice since they aren’t very good. This is why I always suggest to friends to invest in a decent pair of headphones like they just invested in the mp3 player.

One brand I always suggest they give a shot is Sennheiser. They have a large variety of headphones so people are bound to find one that suits their needs. My first pair of Sennheiser’s were the PX100 which were amazing as I reviewed previously on my blog.

Anyway a friend of mine passed by aDawliah yesterday who are the dealers for Sennheiser in Kuwait and he told me they currently have a sale and their prices are now cheaper then Amazon. Not only that but the staff their were very helpful and even let him try on and listen to a variety of headphones until he found one that he liked.

So if you are still using your original Apple white earbuds or are looking to buy a new pair of headphones then now might be the best time to buy one. The easiest aDawliah branch to find is the one right across the street from Marina Mall. They are also dealers for Bose but I wouldn’t recommend them since they are over priced and don’t sound that great.

Here is a link to aDawliah’s website [Link]

CNN Pipeline

Posted by Mark

cnn pipeline

Since I canceled my Showtime subscription I no longer watch TV, not even the free satellite channels. I don’t have a reason to since I download all my TV shows and movies. But, there are times when I do wish I have satellite TV, for example there are currently important events taking place in Lebanon from the bombings in the residential areas to the battles in the north and because I don’t have satellite TV I can’t watch what was happening…

Until now! I was playing around with CNN Pipeline when I noticed one of their feeds was a direct broadcast of LBC, the Lebanese TV station. I clicked on the link and it turns out because of the events taking place in Lebanon, CNN have given viewers an option to view a Lebanese TV station for latest up to date news. So I decided to sign up to CNN Pipeline for only $2.95 a month and I am currently watching a live feed of the latest bombing in Lebanon. Pretty nifty.

Review: Hammour Royale

Posted by Mark

Hammour Royale

KFC wasn’t the only one to recently introduce a new fish sandwich to their menu, Burger King also added the new Hammour Royale. Since I tried KFC’s Fish Zinger the other day, I decided it would only be fair if I also gave Burger King’s conception a shot.

Psychologically I am more comfortable having fish at Burger King then at KFC because BK just feels (and probably is) cleaner. Well I tried the Hammour Royale and I definitely prefer it over the Fish Zinger. Firstly it tastes like fish which is a good first step. Secondly it looks pretty good, maybe not as good as the product shots in their adverts but really no burger or sandwich ever looks like their glamor shots. My biggest problem with the Hammour Royale was that it was a bit dry. If I was to have it again I would order it with cheese and extra sauce because the way I had it today it really lacked some flavor.

Hammour Royale

The price of the Hammour Royale is 900fils and I believe its an extra 50fils if you want cheese with it. The price of the combo is KD1.350. This makes the Hammour Royale 100 fils cheaper then the Fish Zinger sandwich and 150fils cheaper then the Fish Zinger combo. Overall not a bad effort by Burger King, I would still rather have McDonald’s Fillet-O-Fish but this is not a bad alternative. I would definitely have it again. Final score is a 4 out of 5.

Like Cola

like cola

I just found out some disappointing news. After all these years of drinking Like Cola thinking I was supporting a local product, I just found out that Like was actually introduced by 7up. Oh well at least we still have Shani to be proud of.
