i'm not that familiar with wordpress blogs, but after following an incoming link from wordpress, i landed on this blog called "kuwait blogs suck" who made a tribute to our blog! so here's the link and enjoy the hilarious hypothetical conversation with 965malls.

anyways, we finally met at nestle marina mall for coffee, and our no 1 fan and commenter turned out to be a sweet heart - i was really impressed by his personality, his values and views on life - i was so relieved to see that not all young people are shallow, some of them have a great perspective on life and want to make a positive change - what is interesting, is that everything we talked about was reflected one way or the other in that beautiful wall next to us, every word was the topic of a conversation.. amazing!
TKG is also a blogger, a creative cook, a young guy with a dynamic mind, but if i allow myself to give him an advice it would be to enjoy his youth and leave the big, stressful issues till the coming years..
may be we should make this a trend, meeting regularly with our fans, it is very interesting to put a face to a name and get to know the people who comment on your blog - anyone interested?
great meeting you TKG, all the best in your job hunt!
we often receive emails asking us to post news on a new blog, a new venture or some other weird stuff and we usually either ignore, reply negatively or write a post if the news is unique - this time there was no news, but quite a unique request from a guy called omar, who is basically looking for a good driver to race with him as a team, on a 24 hour kart race! i found the request so strange and unique i decided to make an exception and help him out, so here's his email:
"Hello my name is Omar, and I need some drivers to participate with me in a 24 hr kart race. I am taking this race seriously so there are some important things that I want from the driver:
- has experience in motor racing (important)
- someone fit
- over 18
If you see these necessities in you, and would like to join, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Send me an email talking about your talent and any achievements that you have accomplished. Also, if you know anyone interested please tell them about this.
Thank you for your time.
i was at salhia complex last thursday so i decided to stop by cafe royal for breafkast, though i had decided long time ago to boycott that place because of bad service - nevertheless, i wanted to check if things have improved, so i ordered the american breakfast without bacon - i was so shocked by the size of that portion, it felt as if i was having a kid's meal! i dropped the orange juice on my pants, so i basically had half the glass, but of course no one rushed to help me clean up, the waiters where simply watching!!
the worst thing was the price, kd 6.5 for this breakfast!! i swear mcdonald's breakfast is like 10 times better and may be 6 times less the price!!
anyways, i can confirm that the service is still as bad as it were a few months back and certainly not worth the bill!
i was at the sheraton roundabout a couple of days ago so i took the road towards the church to see if the constructions were over - excuse the pun, but hallelujah!!! it's been probably 5 years now that this road was closed, i can't tell you the traffic it created especially on fridays as the christian community in kuwait assembles in that area for prayers & community functions.
personally, i'm ecstatic, i hated that traffic every friday!
i read this article on arabtimes about a 13-year-old boy who managed to break into 17 cars during ramadan - the story could have been labeled as juvenile crimes news, but something was seriously wrong with that story as i read through it - can you imagine that this boy was sent away from iran by his father, to live with his mother in kuwait after many people started accusing him of theft!!
i can't believe this! so instead of straightening the boy, dad decides to export the problem to kuwait?? how irresponsible is that??
back in a april, we wrote about mo'men replacing health stop soon, it seems that the egyptian fast food chain actually opened over eid - mo'men is quick service sandwich restaurant that opened in egypt back 1998 and grew to become a franchise with restaurants in bahrain, uae, sudan, malaysia, lybia and now kuwait.
i stopped by yesterday to try a few sandwiches, i ordered the filly cheese steak and a mix seafood sandwich - they were both very good, the bun is soft and the medium size is quite filling - i was a bit annoyed by the smell of the place, something was burning and it was suffocating! however the price does not suffocate at all, a medium combo meal + sandwich for kd 2.4!!
i will sure try other sandwiches at mo'men, if you happen to pass by salem almubarak street, the restaurant is located right after missoni hotel - hot number 1827700.
we were at crepaway broumana yesterday where we spotted these awesome advertisements - the first one above was in the washroom, and it basically says "for your ads in our toilets, wash your hands then contact us on email@example.com - i think this is quite funny!
on one of the restaurants walls, this hilarious banner says "we thought long and hard about what to write here" - love it!!
as for this banner on the exit door, it simply says "crazy world out there" - couldn't agree more!! brilliant copy, way to go crepaway!
we took the kids to the beach the other day, a resort called "manar" in jounieh - the place is small, cute and neat, but mostly populated by elderly people and their grandchildren - for me, beach means the sea, sandy or rocky, preferably rocky - so the view above represents going to the beach and i love it.
as for the kids, going to the beach is a totally different experience, they prefer the pool and the springboard - for them the sea is scary and they prefer to stay away from its sands and rocks - not sure how to make them change their minds, this is a bit frustrating for me, they should develop a preference to the natural sandy beaches over the above fake environment.
the best view remains the mountains - quite a strategic spot from where we were sitting, from one side the beach, the other the mountains and the pools - i'll choose the mountains over the beach any day of the year!
there's this great shawarma place in beirut sin el-fil area, called joseph - joseph is a restaurant offering all kinds of sandwiches but the shawarma is simply exquisite! the chicken spit is so huge, i've never seen anything like it before - it's like 70 or 80 cm wide! as for the taste, it is awesome, one of the best in beirut - if you happen to pass by sin el-fil, do stop by joseph and try the shawarma.
by the way, I forgot to mention the "meghle", it's this yummy lebanese sweets usually made when a child is born, you can also find it at joseph's and it is absolutely awesome.
