Ramadan Meals

microwave dish

For people who aren’t going to fast during Ramadan, a great solution for lunch is microwavable meals. I have a decent collection of reviews of some meals available at local supermarkets and I will be adding more during the month of Ramadan. For now here are the ones I have available:

Microwave Meal: Chicken Masala
Microwave Meal: Beef with Classic BBQ Sauce
Microwave Meal: Beef Patty Sandwich Builder
Microwave Meal: Manicotti
Microwave Meal: El Charrito Grande
Microwave Meal: Fried Chicken Meal
Microwave Meal: Chicken Fingers

Silver prices up

Post by Mark

KDD Silver

According to this random old guy who was watching over the bakala I frequent while the regular bakala guy was out praying, KDD has increased the price of the Silver ice cream by 50 fils and so is now being sold for 200 fils. I don’t know if other KDD products increased in price but if this very reliable source is right, I am guessing they did.

I was hoping for Rambo 4 the action would take place back in the city like the first Rambo but it looks like its going to take place in a Vietnam like location which is similar to Rambo 2. They should have at least made him fight the Al-Qaeda or the North Koreans. [Link]

Apple Store and Aramex

Post by Mark

It seems some people are having trouble purchasing stuff from the Apple Store online with a local credit card. So far I know for a fact it works with NBK and Gulf Bank credit cards. I also know for a fact that if you put your shipping and billing address as U Shop We Ship it works BUT I can’t confirm that it works if you use your Aramex Shop & Ship address. It seems people who use the Aramex address are getting their orders canceled.

Can anyone here confirm if they were able to purchase items from the Apple Store using a local credit card and a Aramex Shop & Ship account?

Just wanted to boast to other video gamers that I am currently downloading the Call of Duty 4 Multiplayer Beta for the Xbox 360. Since I am a gamespot.com member I was given an activation key for the download. Gamespot rules! [Link]

Order your iPhone

Post by Mark

iphone order

Marzouq was supposed to get me an iPhone with him from the States but he couldn’t buy one from the store without signing up for an AT&T contract. So I decided to order one online from the Apple Store.

Thing is because of all my traveling and shopping these past 3 weeks my credit card is completely maxed out, like KD80 over the limit. I figured let me place an order on the store and see if it works, if it didn’t then it didn’t and if it did great. Surprisingly, it went through. MTC Zain couldn’t charge my last months phone bill to my card cuz it was maxed out yet Apple somehow managed to charge an iPhone!

Anyway for those of you who want to buy an iPhone, Amazon.com don’t sell it but you can purchase the phone directly from the US Apple Store online. For your shipping and billing address fill in your USWS or Aramex address. For your credit card you can use a local card. I personally used my NBK Visa card and it worked. I don’t know if it works with cards from other banks like Gulf Bank, Burgan etc.. but I am guessing they should. Enjoy!

Amazon supposedly redesigned but I have been refreshing my browser for a while now and I still can’t see it. I did manage to find a screenshot of the new design on the page where they talk about their makeover. [Link]
