With frozen yogurt and burger joints trend slowing down, new shawerma places on the other hand are taking up in Kuwait but I’m not minding that since I’m a big fan of shawerma myself. I spotted the franshise German Doner Kebab opened the other night while passing by the so-called Restaurant Street in Salmiya. I overheard some positive reviews from friends about it but I didn’t get the chance to try it yet. I admit their shwerma pictures are mouth-watering but I’ve got to try it first to pass on my verdict. So Anyone tried it? What are their shawerma prices?
I hope they’re reasonable with their prices since many of the new shawerma places are asking 750fils+ for single shwerma, which in my humble opinion is too much.

Afraid of heights? Well then this is definitely not meant for you! The above view is looking-down from the 78th floor trestle from the tallest building in Kuwait, Al Hamra Tower. We can see the top of the Luxury Center and the parked cars as tiny dots. I wish the same photo can be taken at night!

So the long awaited Samsung Galaxy S5 has arrived to Kuwait. If you are planning to buy one right now you can find it in one of these places:
Al Babtain Samsung Dealer (Kuwait City & Hawally)
Wahran (Al Hamra Luxury Center)
EUREKA (All branches)
ZAIN (Al Hamra Luxury Center)
Now did I miss anything? Remember there are two models (3G & 4G) and there is 16GB and 32GB. The 3G should cost around KD190 (16GB) and the 4G (16 GB) around KD215. My advice is to wait a few weeks to allow the price to drop and users to give their feedback. I’m in love with the blue color, what about you?

Spotted this Manhattan Taxi Cab on King Fahad highway sometime back and I was like “Huh, what is it doing in Kuwait?”. Isn’t it cool if they launch a taxi company with yellow cabs like those we see in NYC instead of those annoying Yota Corollas? I mean just looking at it would take me where I really wish to be! Yeah you guessed it, Times Square!

We all have those friends who drive waaaay too fast for no reason, (I’m guilty of it-sometimes!). Some of us have also lost love ones, family members, or witnessed accidents first hand. I got into my first accident last week and I’m still traumatized. A man ran into the side of my car at a roundabout and pushed me half way down the road before he took his foot off the gas. I am so thankful that my car is so friggin old because otherwise, I would have died that night.
Anyway, here’s a video of people who thought they were meeting a friend or loved one somewhere and instead where invited to their own funeral. The video is in French, so make sure to have the subtitles on in English. Click on the little icon that looks like a letter on the bottom right hand of the video, click on and make sure it’s in English, (This is better known as the CC or closed caption, but if you’re computer illiterate like me, you’re welcome:P)

Finally Thursday! Felt like this week would not end. I came across this video and laughed so much more than I should have. It’s pretty old, but still hilarious as ever!

Recall the colorful glassy building with water falls on its facade (AKA Safat) in Hawally just opposite to TSC? It was totally empty for a long time even though construction completed years ago. Last night, I was heading to TSC and I saw that EUREKA has just opened there.
Inside, I observed that the whole interior was occupied by EUREKA electronics with over three floors, I think this might be their largest branch in Kuwait. I saw TVs, Smartphones, Computers, Home appliances, speakers, players distributed over three floors with Zaatar W Zeit and Nestle Toll House on the side. Also, there was a family entertainment area on the 1st floor. I liked the place since reaching EUREKA at Salem Mubarak street can become Mission:Impossible sometimes.
