Woke up at 5:30AM to walk my dog and it was freezing cold. I was literally in my shorts and t-shirt shivering. I guess winter is here early this year.
Like many of you I have been visiting IKEA in Shuwaikh since I was a kid. Sadly at the same time this post gets published (5PM) IKEA in Shuwaikh will have closed down for good. Tomorrow IKEA will reopen but at a new location in The Avenues mall. I was lucky enough to pass by IKEA for lunch today and see the original IKEA for one last time before they closed their doors. It was really strange walking around and not see any furniture on display. I took some pictures with my phone so check them out. [Pictures]
I was planning on going to the 4×4 event which is currently being held at the Mishref Fairgrounds, but after checking out some pictures taken there I don’t think I am gonna anymore. It looks really boring compared to the one they held last year at Marina Crescent. [Pictures]

Just found this online store called Lo3baty which turned out is located in Kuwait. They aren’t selling much just one product, a radio controlled helicopter. Looks cool and its cheap but I am guessing its tiny. I emailed the owner asking if he would send me one so I could review, haven’t gotten a reply yet. [Link]
note: I don’t think its the same Lo3baty as My Toy located in Muthana. The reason is if it was the same I would think they would atleast have their contact numbers and shop address on the site. I also did a whois on the domain name and the information there is fake. If it was the same My Toy as Muthana they would have had the correct whois info. I think this site is just someone taking advantage of the Lo3baty name but isn’t actually connected to the real Lo3baty in Muthana.
WOW! All the NHL games are available as a full download on google video!! I can now download them onto my iPod and watch them while working. [Link]
I haven’t finished watching the movie, its currently still playing but I have already decided its getting a 5 out of 5. Do you like Jackass? Well Jackass is to Dirty Sanchez what WWF is to UFC. Dirty Sanchez is the real thing. I just watched one of the guys get a liposuction at some cheap ass unlicensed clinic in some run down neighborhood in Thailand which is bad enough by itself except the guy got the lipo suction while he was awake and no anesthesia! When he was done the doctor gave him the bottle of fat that was sucked out. Later in the night they played some Bangkok Roulette and at the end of the night one of the losers drank a glassful of the fat that was sucked out of the other guy! It can’t get any grosser then that. Thats a 5 out of 5, you have to watch this movie. [Link]
Four girls went on a trip to Cambodia last February and got really touched by the poverty and injustice they saw over there. When they got back they decided they were going to do something about it. The girls decided they would hold a fund raising photography exhibition which would include all of their shots that they took while they were there.
The exhibition is taking place at “Beit Lothan” which is located adjacent to Marina Mall and begins on the 6th of November and ends on the 8th starting at 6PM.
Their pictures will be on sale for KD30 each. All the money they make will be donated to the Schools for Children of Cambodia (SCC) charity.
