Kuwait Flour Mills Gets Certified

In: Food, Kuwait

Pickup a Kuwait Flour Mills loaf of bread these days and the first thing you will notice is the new “FSMS Certification” advertisement. Looks more like an ad for Bureau Veritas. Anyway, its good to know that good ol KFM is taking food safety seriously. Have been eating their breads since I can remember and [...]

British Airways Bowling Tournament

In: Kuwait, Travel

British Airways organised a Bowling Tournament today evening for its GSA and top agents. The event was held at the Cosmo Bowling center at Discovery Mall. Although very few people were present when the event started, the place was packed full by the time it was over. All 10 lanes. It was a great mix [...]

Tall Cake For No Ribs @ Ruby’s

In: Food, Kuwait

So we were in the mood for ribs. And since Ruby Tuesday is our favorite “ribs” joint, off we went. After placing our order, they came back explaining that their ribs got over during the afternoon service and none were left for us. Not sure if it’s their policy or it was the sad face [...]

Ghost Busters Kuwait

In: Fun Times, Kuwait

This “Ghost Busters” van was parked outside a garage in Sharq. Quite a site to see in Kuwait. Wonder if they get any business. The only haunted house I’ve heard of in Kuwait is one that existed along the 30 in Salmiya. Anyone care to share their ghostly experiences?

The new multi-storey parking at Mubarak Al-Kabeer hospital is a great blessing for all visitors. But maybe not so much for those parking on the second floor. If you follow the “Exit” signs, you’ll keep going round and round the entire floor. After spending 2 million KWD on construction, the least they could have done [...]

Door Mats are for Ads?

In: Environment, Kuwait

This is what I’m welcomed to almost everyday when I open my door. Ads for special offers, ads for sales, restaurant menus, cargo companies, private tutions and other crap I’m never interested in. Sometimes it gets so  cluttered that no one see the door mat below all these ads. This is a real pain mainly [...]

Another Big Fire in Dajeej

In: Environment, Kuwait, Work

Saw a huge plume of black smoke near the Sultan Wholesale Center in Dajeej today morning. It seems to be the carpet warehouse next door. Lots of fire trucks and some ambulances around the place. Hope no one was injured. These big fires seem to be a common sight in Dajeej. Seems a lot of companies (including [...]

Driving Gloves …to Beat the Heat

In: Kuwait

Over the last 3 weeks I’ve been driving back from work much earlier (3pm) due to Ramadan. This has been good for my tummy but painful on my hands. By the time I get to the car, its super hot. The door handles, the steering wheel and even the gear box are burning hot …literally. [...]

Alshaya Recruitment Kiosk

In: Kuwait

I was quite amazed to see this recruitment kiosk outside one of Alshaya’s  outlets at the Avenues. It’s a great idea as such but the using it could get cumbersome for some. The kiosk basically shows you a form from their recruitment portal. You need to fill it up. Then scan your resume onto the [...]

Was checking out Expedia’s Hotel Ranking page and Al Manshar Rotana in Fahaheel – Kuwait came up as the 4th best hotel in the world according to their users. Guess everyone loves their huge rooms and corridors.
