Hores and Beer at Lulu

In: Fun Times, Kuwait, News

Rush now to Lulu. For only KWD 2.75 you can get 3 “hores” and a crate of  beer cans.  Now I know why all my Malloo friends love this place. They keep telling me this is the “cheapest” mart but I know why they really come here now.   And btw, it’s not the cheapest [...]

Went to the Burjuman mall with some friends while I was in Dubai. While we were there we noticed a huge crowd gathered. Thought it might be a fight since in Kuwait that’s what it usually is. But it wasn’t. It was a promo by Etisalat for the iPhone. A team of hip dancers were [...]

Laptops and cell phones and even more laptops. Thats about it. The Wataniya stand had a lot of activity going on. I initially thought the image on the background was a cartoon, but it was a live video of the woman on the left. Lots of entertainment there but all in Arabic so I didn’t [...]

Genki Sushi

In: Kuwait, News

If you happen to be on the Shuhada Street near the Array Center, don’t get alarmed when you see this.
