When it comes to food, we in Kuwait are pretty good at knowing what’s a good plate to have and when!
I found this cool new start up food app called feeditch (kinda sounds like feed your itch,lol) that pretty much covers what most food lovers have been doing on instagram. I found the app to be a little confusing at first but I got the hang of it and I am now having fun on it. Basically, Feeditch is a social food and beverage photo-sharing platform targeted for food enthusiasts and gurus in the Middle East. Feeditch offers the first of its kind recommendations that caters to user preferences ultimately facilitating and enriching the dining-out experience.
It’s available on itunes in both arabic and english. Good work to the young kuwaitis who have started it and all the best!
I just came to know about this new iPhone & Android app named “Wasalny” or as they write it in Arabic “وصلني”. According to the app description, its fed up with traffic jams and peak hours to save drivers the hassle thus helping them beat annoying traffic. They say it uses GPS technology to measure speed and send users real-time road updates.
In more detail, it works by allowing users to share and report both automatically and manually traffic conditions such as accidents and road blockages and provide them alternatives and shortcuts for their destinations to save time and of course fuel. I noticed it was built in multi-country platform (mainly Kuwait and Egypt).
It’s about time to have such a helpful app. I just downloaded it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and am currently playing with the features and options to get a full impression. Though what I hated is that it needed registration in the beginning. The app can be downloaded for free on Google Play & AppStore under the name وصلني
Yet another horrific accident, this time on Blajat street involving two cars and one is Lamborghini (I think Gallardo). I was told three passengers were rushed to the E.R due to injuries yesterday, I truly hope they’re safe now. I can tell from the short clip that the accident involved speed. Obviously, the Lambo is really in bad shape. Be vigilant people!
I’m really starting to hate supercars, they catch fire easily in almost every moderate or major accident. I was trying to figure out why that happens, is it because of the engine design? or probably where they place the gas tank? It’s really ironic how some people literally pay hundreds of thousands KDs to get cars that can’t even assure them safety.
Missed The British Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, air show yesterday afternoon? You’re not alone because I also missed it. Actually I didn’t even know about it beforehand and thanks to the low profile press media! Such events shall be publicly announced on media like TV, Radio, Newspapers, Blogs, and even Google ads so people can know and get the chance to see it in person. I came back home from work at 3:30 pm and heard the roar of jets but I thought they were just moving from one air base to another.
It’s not everyday you get to see British Air Force in action. I was always a fan of Britsh Air Force, well since I ever watched documentaries on World War II, and it seems that they gave such spectacular show in Kuwait sky near Marina Mall shoreline. No wonder since they are one of the world’s premier aerobatic teams.
Luckily enough, one of our blog readers shared with us such a long video for the whole action. Also, I managed to find some shots online.
Looks like fatal fights in Kuwait are not only happening in shopping malls but are also invading football courts! I’m observing that the re-occurrence of fights in sport events are on the rise in Kuwait and no one is doing a thing!
Latest was a knives fight at Kuwait premier league under 20 that started after the last night’s match between Arabi and Kazima sports clubs. To my surprise the fight started between the players themselves and escalated by the crowd, and to make things even worse the police were non-existent to contain it! How can they even play without police or guards? I’m so sick of this chaos.
I awoke earlier than usual today to a very foggy weather, it was so foggy to the point that I can’t see thing 10 meters (30ft) ahead. Coupled with strange silence it reminded me of the survival horror video game Silent Hill. I read on the news that air flights were delayed and that the fog may last for several days.
I advise you all to be extra careful while driving because of extemely poor visibility. Do any of you have any high resolution shots taken for Kuwait City, Kuwait Towers, or Al Hamra Tower in the fog?
A blog reader says he saw rubber lifeboats at a fire fighters station today. Weather forecast in Kuwait said earlier that heavy rains and floods were expected starting today till the end of the week. I was also kinda fearful last night lest that streets and highways may get flooded due to inadequacy of the storm water drainage systems just like what happened back in the year 1997.
However, I awoke in the early morning to see a bright sun and partially cloudy refreshing sky. Thankfully! Also, popular Kuwaiti astronomer, Dr saleh Alojairy, said that the on going talk about tornadoes and storms is utterly a twaddle, and expected rainfall tomorrow.
That’s good to know since I was almost convinced that I need to purchase a rubber boat for work. (kidding!). On the other hand, I saw this scary video for a real twister in Qatar.
Our fella Ali Younis created this short yet creative time-lapse about Kuwait industry at different factories. I felt positive energy as I watched it, especially that weekend is about to come to an end and working days are ahead.
I think two of the featured factories are Shuweikh port and Kuwait recycling plant, not sure about the others.
