Students Break “Thriller” World Record

Post by Mark

I don’t know how they broke the record since they were only 242 students and 1500 Filipino inmates already danced to Thriller before. [YouTube]

Pinkberry opening up at Avenues

Post by Mark

I just heard that the Los Angeles based franchise for the upscale frozen dessert restaurant Pinkberry was taken by Alshaya and that they will be opening their first branch at the Avenues. It will be the first Pinkberry branch outside California and New York. According to the Pinkberry facebook group they should open up before the end of the year. [Link]

DukeFleed Shop

Post by Mark

Just found this local online shop that carries some cool Grendizer and Sanshiro figurines and I am already regretting it since I now want to buy a whole bunch of things. The prices seem pretty reasonable which is making my life difficult. I must resist! [Link]

Mogahwi

Post by Mark

I don’t know how many of you remember Mogahwi or even know what it is so I figured I would post about them. Mogahwi I believe is one of the best if not the best stationary and art supply store in Kuwait. They’ve been around in Kuwait since 1940 but the Salmiya branch which I’ve been visiting since I was a kid I think has been around for 30 years but not really sure. The place hasn’t changed much since they first opened, I think they still even use the same bags. They’ve got everything there from the regular stuff like pens and papers to the more interesting stuff located in the basement which is the art supplies. I’ve taken a few shots of the place which you can see below. I don’t think they get as many customers as they used to back in the 80s and 90s so I hope they don’t close down. They’re located in the old Salmiya near Alghanim Electronics.

The Healthier Lifestyle: Macaroni Grill

Post by Mark

I go to Macaroni Grill quite often and mostly because of their garden salad with sweet Italian dressing and the grilled salmon dish.

Although I started going there because of their 2,430 calories spaghetti and meatballs dish, the grilled salmon quickly became my favorite dish. The fillet is covered with a savory honey glaze (which rocks!) and is usually served with orzo pasta but I have them swap it out with mashed potatoes instead.

Macaroni Grill is located at the Avenues, outside near Chili’s.

Update: I recently got food poisoning from Macaroni Grill (from the fish according to them) and so have completely stopped eating there.

Jet Skiing with my new camera

Post by Mark

I went jet skiing today and took my new cheap ass water proof camera (pictured above) to try out. The result? Astonishing! Because the camera is so cheap and poorly built I think while winding the film or rewinding, the internal plastics rubbed against the film scratching it. The end result were photos that look like they were taken decades old! The heavy vignetting (the darkening near the corners) also came out pretty cool. Overall I love the effect and it came as a complete surprise.

American Mangoes

Post by Mark

I just got an American mango (top left of photo) from Dean & Deluca to try out and it was terrible, nothing like regular mangoes. It just tasted really really horrible, the worst mango I have ever had and by far! I hope I’ve not been scarred for life..

3 Kuwaitis riding around the world

Post by Mark

Three Kuwaitis, Muhanad Al-Sultan, Husain Ashkanani and Ali Al-Bairami are going to ride their motorcycles around the world through 17 countries in a trip that will last around 120 days. They’ve set up a blog called “Our Shared Planet Motorcycle Adventure” where they will be documenting the ride which I think takes off from today. Their trip is sponsored by the Public Authority for Youth and Sports. Here is the [Link]

Thanks Dhari!
