Infiniti G37 Coupe

Post by Mark

Infiniti G37

I’ve got the new 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe to test drive this weekend and so far I am liking it. I am not to fond of the red exterior but I love the all black interior. Its rare to find a black leather interior in Kuwait but since I’ve been given the “S” version it comes standard in black which is great. I will take better shots under brighter conditions but since I got the car in the evening this is the best I could do.

Here is a link to the G37 page on the Infiniti website. [Link]

Local online pet store

Post by Mark

q8pets

Nat just told me about this website here in Kuwait where people sell and buy pets from. Sounds normal until you actually check the site and realize people are selling everything from ponies and monkeys to crocodiles and cheetahs. My favorite though has to be the rare french dwarf goat, I wish I had a farm so I could get it. [Link]

Update: I called and asked about the cheetah, its 8 months old and the guy is selling it for KD1,200. He had four originally and this is the only one left. Is this even legal? How are people allowed to buy and sell cheetah’s or tigers?? Why isn’t there some kind of control? This is really upsetting.

Update2: Here is a video on YouTube of a guy in Kuwait who had a baby cheetah in his house. Although its very cute keep in mind this is a WILD animal and not a house pet so what he’s doing is very cruel. [Link]

Weekend Demolished

Post by Mark

Weekend

The shawerma place called Weekend that is located in front of AUK in Salmiya got demolished. Supposedly the owner of the building demolished it so that he could drive off the owners of the shop. You can read more about it on the Al Rai Alaam newspaper but its in Arabic. I wasn’t a fan of Weekend, I prefered Malek Al 3aseer which was right next to it but it still sucks. They are doing the same with the shops in old Salmiya. For example Family Bookshop is still open but you can barely get to it. The entrances are blocked by rocks and sand because the owner of the building is trying to drive them out. [Link]

One Hundred Pushups

pushups

I just found this website called One Hundred Pushups. The site contains a plan which if you follow correctly by the sixth week you should be able to do 100 consecutive pushups. I just took the initial test so I could get my rank and I only managed to do 9 pushups! Yes I am not very fit… [Link]

Post by Mark

Pretty strange video, if you don’t want to watch all of it just forward to 2:10 into the movie. Looks like a ghost which is pretty freaky. [YouTube]

Reebok

These new sneakers just got announced by Reebok and I think they look pretty cool. Its an interesting concept of using luxury associated materials like snakeskin in the sneakers but I can’t figure out what I could wear it with! [Link]

Saso Lounge

Saso Lounge

I passed by Saso Lounge yesterday for lunch. They are going to be placing a banner on my blog soon so I figured I would pass by and check the place out. The place is located in a strategic location, during lunch while I was there the place was full of business people since its close to many offices. The food was also pretty good and very reasonably priced. Its an Italian Asian menu which although sounds strange made perfect sense to me since while I was in Lebanon I had a habit of ordering Sushi and Pizza for dinner. The dish pictured above is the Shrimp n’ Hammour which was great and a dish I would order again. Check out their website for more details and their location. If you work in Kuwait City you should pass and try it out for lunch. [Link]
