Music Video from 1978 – Shot in Kuwait

Post by Mark

Wow Kuwaitism just posted the coolest music video ever made in Kuwait. The video was recorded in 1978 back when alcohol was still legal and when the sea was actually visible while driving down the Gulf Road. Its an English music video called Do You Love Me? and its by the Bendaly Family.

Kuwaitism also has another video linked and more info so check out his post [Here] Also the guy who put the video on YouTube has a ton more vintage music videos which you can also check out by clicking [Here]

update: I asked my mum if she knew a group called Bendaly Family since she was in Kuwait back then and she told me she did and it turns out I do to. They are a Lebanese band and their daughter Remi Bendaly later went solo and was pretty famous. According to my mum back in around 1985 or 1986 I actually attended a Bendaly Family concert here in Kuwait and got to sit front row. The concert was held in Shaab Park which was an open area back then. The Showbiz owner back then George Karam brought the Bendaly Family to Kuwait.

Bershka

bershka

I just found out Bershka is opening in The Avenues on March 13th. I am not a big fan of Bershka, Nat is, but the interesting thing to note here is the opening date. If Bershka is opening on the 13th then I am guessing The Avenues is opening either before or on that same day.

update: Launch pushed back till the 18th.

my bike on the truck

Yesterday night Tristar came and picked up my bike so they could install my new slip-ons. While the bike was being put on the truck I realized I still haven’t come up with a name for the bike. So after some thinking I have decided to call my bike Starscream.

Little Treats

Post by Mark

mini cupcakes

A friend of mine called me up yesterday after reading my post on Juju and recommended I try Little Treats if I was looking for the best cup cakes in Kuwait. I found out about Little Treats a week ago since someone emailed me the link to their website but I hadn’t tried them yet. According to my friend he ordered cupcakes from both Juju’s and Little Treats and he found Little Treats much better. Only problem is Little Treats don’t deliver. I will give them a call today and I think I will order a mixture of Oreo and Fudge It cupcakes, the combination sounds pretty cool. [Little Treats]

black sheep

This is the FUNNIEST trailer I think I have ever watched. I couldn’t stop laughing, I actually had to wipe my tears after I finished cuz I cracked up so much. The movie is coming out at the end of the month and its a horror spoof about sheep in New Zealand turning evil. You have to watch the trailer. [Link]

The Chili Dog Showdown

Post by Mark

Nathans or Hardees, which of the two has the better chili dog?

THE NATHANS CHILI DOG
Chili Hot Dog Nathans

THE HARDEES CHILI DOG
Chili Hot Dog Hardees

PRICE
Nathans Chili Dog: 750 fils
Hardees Chili Dog: 500 fils

SIZE
Both Hardees and Nathans have similarly sized hot dogs. The Nathans is just slightly bigger but not by that much.

LOOKS
Hardees looks visually more attractive and colorful while the Nathans hot dog looks dull and stale.

SPEED
Nathans hot dogs take longer then Hardees to prepare. I ordered my hot dog from Nathans Souk Sharq then I went to Hardees ordered a hot dog, I picked it up and went back to Nathans and my hot dog was still not ready. Also while waiting at Nathans I had to stand there listening to the manager making fun out of people who pass him. He’s an idiot.

TASTE
Nathans Chili Dog: The chili is terrible and the onions tasteless. The hot dogs meat itself is tastier then the Hardees meat but everything else tasted bad. I even ordered a plain hot dog with just ketchup and mustard and I don’t know what ketchup they use but its one of the worst tasting ones I have ever tried. A real mess seriously.

Hardees Chili Dog: Although the actual hot dog itself tastes a bit better at Nathans, the chili used at Hardees is much better and the mustard and onions are also better tasting. Even the bread feels softer and fresher.

CONCLUSION
I believe the Hardees Chili Dog is a better hot dog overall. Firstly it costs 50% less then the Nathans one Nathans hot dog costs 50% more. Its also visually more attractive, quicker to order and in general is a better tasting hot dog. I would not have a Nathans hot dog again, not unless they get better ingredients.

Review: Naifs Puri Fillet

Post by Mark

Puri Fillet

I heard a lot of stories about this sandwich and they were mostly horror stories but never the less I wanted to try it for myself. Awhile ago I ordered some food from Naif and one of the items was the infamous Puri Fillet. The Puri Fillet is fried chicken with cheese, lettuce and mayonnaise wrapped in puri bread. Puri is deep fried bread for those of you who don’t know.

So deep friend chicken plus deep fried bread and you get a three million calorie sandwich. Its so greasy its suicidal. I swear after I finished the sandwich I felt like I had doubled my weight.

The final score, 0 out of 5. This sandwich is for people who ride motorbikes wearing flip flops and no helmet.
