Sporadic news from Salem Almubarak Street

Monday, April 4th, 2011

i was walking down salem almubarak street visiting a few malls and noticed the following:

1- bath & body works replaces next at alfanar mall.

2- alrifai has closed down its shop right across alfanar mall - it has been a while since the closure and despite its strategic location, the shop is still vacant until today.

further down the street in layla galleria a new coffee shop has opened, café del mar - it's a family owned coffee shop run by a mother and her kids, cute idea..

my last stop was at AG Mart, a schizophrenic supermarket with quite a disconnect between the exterior, interior architecture and the brand name / logo - they're trying to look upscale but my guess they failed miserably - the veggies look awesome though :)

so that's about my quick salem almubarak street updates - too bad it feels a bit laid-back nowadays, i loved that street when it was buzzing with life - i guess that its fame faded with the opening of the new mega malls - remember when that street ended with a u-turn, just before the tunnel? there was no traffic light at that end of the street which created even more buzz during weekends - nevertheless, i'm still a big fan of salem almubarak street and its cafés...

Great news! Laila Galleria’s mole is not growing!

well, compared to other malls laila galleria might look like a mole - but despite being there for ages this mole is not growing, hence a beauty operation might be a great idea indeed...
