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)

So. Saad Lamjared is a Moroccan singer who is nothing less than adorable, I’ll admit. But what happened over the span of the last couple of days is ridiculous. He became ridiculously famous around this region after his song ENTY went viral.

It’s a pretty good song, no joke!

Anyway. He was in Kuwait, or is still in Kuwait, for the opening of TFK in Hamra Mall. We has basically assaulted in the middle of the mall. There are a million videos going around of what happened and the swarm of girls (and guys) around him.

Here are some of them. Enjoy!

This weekend I was invited to witness first hand stunts, drifting, and intense rubber burning at the Infiniti Red Bull racing event. The day consisted of Carlos Sainz Jr., who tore up the streets (literally!) in a Formula 1 racing car sponsored by Infiniti, Abdo Feghali, a Lebanese drifter who currently holds the world record for the longest drift and is the Middle East Hill Climb Champion, and finally Chris Pfeiffer who left the crowd in awe at his amazingly executed stunts on his motorcycle.

A whopping 20,000 people showed up to the event to cheer on the athletes and feel the adrenalin rush! Gulf Road was closed from right before the Kuwait Towers in order for this event to take this place.

Carlos Sainz Jr. was so extremely fast that I couldn’t really get that many pictures of him. Here’s the best I could do under the circumstances. (Some of these photos were sent to me from Red Bull)

Last night, we had the honor of being invited to Cocoa/Cabana to try out their menu in Abu Halifa. The concept behind the restaurant is one of a kind, and virtually never heard of before!

IMG_0177

Everything in their menu has a mix of chocolate with their special sauce- even the burgers! You’ll find things on the menu like Caesar Salad with cookies, Nutella samboosak and other strange yet yummy mixtures!

IMG_0173

The only downside, I would say, to the restaurant is that the food took way too long to arrive. It took about 2 hours for our burgers to arrive but when they finally did, it was evident what all the hype was about.

IMG_0163

Overall, it was an amazing experience with amazing people and a beautiful atmosphere. There was a live saxophone player who entertained throughout the night, good food and enough chocolate to satisfy anyone’s cravings!

So, obviously I’m super hungry, and somehow stubbled upon this recipe that made me gain 45 kilos just looking at the photos. I am going straight to the grocery store right after work to purchase all these ingredients and will probably end up in the nearest hospital because I gave myself a heart attack.

Warning: This is not for the faint hearted.

How To Make a 15 Pound Snickers Bar

Like I said, you might become diabetic when attempting to devour this cake.

First off, you need a ton of chocolate and fatty everything on the face of the planet- or just everything in this photograph.

15_pound_snickers_01

You’ll then melt all the chocolate, butterscotch, and add a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter, depending on your preference- I’m not judging you.

15_pound_snickers_02

Should look a little like this

15_pound_snickers_03

Then proceed to cover the bottom of a very large tub? with half of the outcome of your melted deliciousnessness, as tempting as it is to stick your fingers in it, save the rest for later!

15_pound_snickers_04

Then add a couple Snickers bars to our concoction. Just around the edges- you’ll add more later.

15_pound_snickers_05

You’ll stick all Snickers to the rest of your melted yumminess with Nutella. Just because there isn’t enough chocolate in the mix.

15_pound_snickers_06

You will then melt the Kraft Caramels, or any other caramels of your choosing, Nestle Carnation Milk, and tons of butter-just because.

15_pound_snickers_08

Something delicious and magical like this should appear..

15_pound_snickers_09

Then add all the melted gooeyness into the middle of your Snickers pool and add some unsalted peanuts.

15_pound_snickers_10

Then you add even more Snickers into the pool of goodness. I know, I know. These ones are smaller, they don’t count.

15_pound_snickers_11

Then comes the nougat..which is basically consists of melted marshmallow puffies.

15_pound_snickers_12

When all melted properly, it should look a little like this

15_pound_snickers_13

I’m almost done, I promise! All you have to do now is create another small Snickers pool with the mini bites and add your freshly made nougat into the mix

15_pound_snickers_14

Perfect! All that’s left is to add the other half of the base you originally made as a top layer and pop it into the freezer for 2 hours, or so!

15_pound_snickers_15

This is what your final disaster should look like. You’re welcome, and I’m sorry if you end up in a hospital with your arteries clogged and weight 45 kilos more than when you began reading this.

On 28 March 2014, Spanish driver Carlos Sainz Jr. will drive an Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One car on the streets of Kuwait, which will be the first time a Formula One car has been driven on the country’s roads.

Sainz Jr. commented: “When I was told I would be doing the show run, I was very happy. Anything you do with Red Bull is a lot of fun and I knew I would enjoy it. It will be my first time in Kuwait and I have heard it’s a great place, so I can’t wait to get there. It’s also exciting as it’s my first Formula One Show Run and while I’ve done tests and filming, it will be a great experience to be able to drive the car in front of all the fans.”

The Red Bull Junior Team driver has plenty of racing experience behind him already but this is truly exceptional. “Most of all, being a racer I am thrilled to be driving an F1 car and especially the RB7. It is a world famous race car, one of the true greats. I have never driven it before, I drove the RB9 last year and I can’t wait to have a go in the RB7, it will be something very special.”

Carlos’s challenge for 2014 is to win the Formula Renault 3.5 championship and the 19-year-old from Madrid is certainly one to watch. During a limited FR3.5 campaign in 2013, Sainz impressed the FR3.5 paddock by topping the timesheets in free practice on his debut in Monaco. He had only been in the car a few times but ran a combative race to finish sixth.

In 2014 Sainz Jr. joins the DAMS team in the FR3.5 championship. The DAMS team has pedigree in FR3.5, having won both Team and Drivers’ Championships in 2013, making a star of Drivers’ Champion Kevin Magnussen, now racing in Formula One.

Fans will see the Infiniti Red Bull Racing World Champion Car on an 800-meter long urban track stretching from Bneid El Gar signal light to the Kuwait Towers. The car, which accelerates from 0-100km/h in 2.4 seconds, can reach speeds of 250km/h and above.

In addition to the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One Show Run, Kuwait will get a glimpse of Chris Pfeiffer, a four-time World Stunt Riding Champion and one of the best Stunt Riders in the world who will be pushing the limits with his new tricks. Red Bull Athlete Abdo Feghali will also entertain the spectators with his amazing drifts.

The hype for the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One Show Run will begin a few days before the main event, when the team’s car will be displayed and fired up around various locations in Kuwait, as well as other activities such as the Red Bull Pitstop Game. The event sponsored by Infiniti, Pirelli, Babtain Group and Sirbb Track is held under the organization of KMRC and will take place next to Kuwait Towers on March 28 at 2pm.
