Now this is quite terrific, they did it with Souk Mubarkia and now it seems they finally agreed to do the same with Salem Al Mubarak Street in Salmiya. Municipality is moving forward to turn Salem Al Mubarak Street into pedestrians only street. Yes, that means no more looking left and right when crossing the streets because no cars will be allowed.

I’ve been waiting for this to happen for years, literally! I mean isn’t it fun to only see people walking and shopping just like in Europe. They also intend to further develope the area which is great. However, this makes me wonder where will cars park since there’s not any parking lot in the vicinity. It’s about time!

Lately we can notice  increasing awarness in healthy life style  here in Kuwait  by increasing number of dietitians, playing sport, going to gyms, following hundreds of healthy tips accounts on Instagram, and having healthy food. Here in my post i’ll introduce one of the most interesting, effective and body toning sports which is Zumba.

Zumba Fitness is great fun and an excellent way to burn those calories,  weight loss and tone the body. Dance, have fun and burn between 500-1000 calories per hour.

Recently Zumba classes are everywhere and in every gym in Kuwait,  some people are giving only Zumba classes in centers or at their houses.

For those busy people or housewives who doesn’t have time to attend Zumba classes. I found several interesting Zumba channels which you can sneak an hour to do it during your day.

1. Zumba France

Finally I visited Qout market for the first time on last Saturday. At the first sight the place looked very spacious and very organized.

For those who doesn’t know what is it exactly, it’s an exhibition for small businesses-most of them are food business- established on the first Saturday of each month.

Compared to other exhibitions I’ve visited before, Qout had different, new and unique ideas in food, fashion, home accessories, food supplements and kids’ toys.
I tried there some Afghan pickles which was very tasty, watermelon juice -was very refreshing in the hot weather-, some biscuits and ice-cream.
The good thing about it that it had categorized booths, all booths under same category in one place. Some booths also had playing area for kids and activities like painting and puzzles so your kids can enjoy their time while you are shopping.
I posted below some of booths pictures which caught my eye yesterday.

I liked the idea that loyac were selling a re-cycling bags  for people to use while shopping.

looking forward to the next one!

Last Wednesday I was invited to live station grilling night in Jumeirah Messilah beach hotel under name Chill & Grill night. Weather was amazing although it was little bit hummed but because it by the  sea and pool side there was a cool, amazing, refreshing breeze. The setup included live band playing  oriented music all the time, food, shisha and drinks. The first setup with the band was including the food  and by pool side. Food available was appetizers (taboulah, fatoush, hommos, mtabbal, baba ghanouj,  potato salad …), main dishes were different barbeque flavors (shrimp, lobster, sheshtawoq, steak, lamp,  fish, Hamour…) except beriany and packed potato. For me the best was the shrimp, lobster and steak. If  I will evaluate the food I would rate it to get 8/10.

The second setup was by sea side including only shisha and hot drinks. It has two types of chairs couches  and bean bag chairs, which were very comforting especially with the sea wave sounds.

Overall experience was good and would rate it to be 9.5/10. Food could be better but service, atmosphere and setup makes you condones the food taste.Chill and grill night happening every Wednesday from 7pm to 11 pm, worth a visit!

بالمان ومجموعة بهبهاني  أعلنوا إطلاق حفلهم  الخاص باستقبال سفير العلامة التجارية بالمان وأيضاً ملكة جمال سويسرا دومينيك ريندركنيشت، الذي أخذ مكاناً في معرض تيك توك الأفنيوزفي يوم الأحد 21 سبتمبر 2014.

ويعتبر تيك توك أحدث إضافة لمجموعة بهبهاني، وهو عبارة عن مفهوم جديد ومبتكر يجمع بين الماركات التي تلبي شغف محبي الساعات السويسرية وذلك في أجواء عصرية وغير تقليدية تنقل عملائها إلى عالم من الحداثة.

وبدأ الحدث بمؤتمر صحفي حيث تم الإعلان عن مسابقة بالمان انستجرام لتشجيع المتسوقين ووسائل الإعلام لتجربة ساعة بالمان بيليجانزا كرونو وإلتقاط صورة بجانب ملكة جمال سويسرا وتحميلها على حسابهم الخاص بالإنستجرام. والثلاث متسابقين الحائزين على أكبر عدد من الإعجاب يفوزون بساعة بالمان.

منذ عام 2005، عززت ساعات بالمان هذا التقليد الخاص بالشركة مع رعايتها لمسابقة ملكة جمال سويسرا. وملكة جمال سويسرا هذا العام هي دومينيك ريندر كنيشت، 24 سنة، الشقراء الجميلة التي تتمتع بشخصية ذكية ومتألقة مع ابتسامة أكثر إشراقاً وتنتمي إلى عشاق الرياضة.

لقد أطلق على ملكة جمال سويسرا 2013، لقب بيليجانزا كرونو ليدي لساعات اليد المذهلة من ماركة بالمان. وعلى نحو مماثل للكرونوغراف، تقيس الفترات الزمنية القصيرة – لغاية 30 دقيقة – فضلاً عن عرض الوقت واليوم. ولكن على غرار الكرونوغراف العادية، فان هذا التصميم يقوم بعرض قسطاً كاملاً من السحر الجذاب.

إنها ولدت في عالم حصري لآخر صيحات الموضة الباريسية وتأسست على يد  المصمم الشهير بيير بالمان. و جلبت بالمان التقاليد القديمة التي تتميز بالذوق والأناقة إلى عالمنا الحديث. واليوم فهي تتمتع بالروح الأصلية التي تقود المجموعة الداعمة لمصنعي الساعات السويسرية الرائدة – مصدر من المزايا الفنية والتسويقية التي لا تقدر بثمن على قدر الاستفادة من ساعات بالمان.
