I thought I’d share with you the amazing news of American Tourister’s sale that’s going on from now up until July 21st. They have an amazing amazing range of new bags in various new colors and shapes.

Here are some things I didn’t know about the brand and traveling:

When you purchase a bag, you get a 3 year INTERNATIONAL warranty on all it’s accessories (wheels, lock, handle etc.) If you mess it up yourself IE scratch it and bang it up, it doesn’t count! Neither does it count if the zipper jams. They’re only responsible for manufacturing mistakes, so keep that in mind!IMG_1297

American Tourister has been around since 1930, where the owner wanted to originally sell luggage for 1$ and the brand grew from there.

You get excellent value for the price you pay, and the bags are more or less a reasonable price for everyone!

They are located in various locations, Marina, Muthana, Souq Al Kabir, and other outlets like Debenhams and some hypermarkets as well!

The maximum size for your cabin luggage (carry on) is 55 centimeters. It must also not weigh more that 7 KG. They make their bags extremely lightweight to ensure travelers don’t have to worry about extra weight!

Large suitcases should not be more that 32 KG. I know that sometimes airports let that slide, but 32 is the international limit and that should be abided.

There are 2 types of locks (I honestly had no idea) The TSA lock, that has a red logo on the lock itself, and the regular lock that has digits. The TSA lock basically means that it has a universal key that can be used at different airports. In places that are more strict about checking luggage, they usually have these keys, and instead of breaking your locks, they can use the key and check in a more civilized manner:P

All in all, they’re an amazing invest, both in style and in durability.

Do you think that we live in a small world? We’ll we don’t. Social media makes you think that world is right there, in your backyard, but we forget that the we are just drops in it’s huge vastness. We live in a world that is ever changing, one that shifts and rotates without any notice. Blink and you might miss it, especially when you consider these numbers.

One minute in the digital world means a whole lot more than 60 seconds.

A friend to our blog has sent us this short clip showing the waste and trash left over from Ministry of Awqaf & Islamic affairs after removal of their spring camp. I thought Baladiya & K-EPA wouldn’t allow for such uncivilized acts go unpunished! I’m shocked to see such an irresponsible act from an official govermental body that supposedly represents Islam.

Thanks [Nawaf]

I just came to know through friends that The Wayans Brothers are coming to Kuwait by end of next month for a stand up comedy show. Doesn’t ring any bells? Well I’m sure you have seen them starring in movies like Scary Movie 1&2 and White Chicks! These guys are unbelievably hilarious and I hope this is true.

I’ve heard the event will be organized by Madstand Entertainment, but I’m not yet sure where will the stand-up comedy show take place. I’ll keep you all updated, so stay tuned.

When: 30th May 2014

With frozen yogurt and burger joints trend slowing down, new shawerma places on the other hand are taking up in Kuwait but I’m not minding that since I’m a big fan of shawerma myself. I spotted the franshise German Doner Kebab opened the other night while passing by the so-called Restaurant Street in Salmiya. I overheard some positive reviews from friends about it but I didn’t get the chance to try it yet. I admit their shwerma pictures are mouth-watering but I’ve got to try it first to pass on my verdict. So Anyone tried it? What are their shawerma prices?

I hope they’re reasonable with their prices since many of the new shawerma places are asking 750fils+ for single shwerma, which in my humble opinion is too much.

Afraid of heights? Well then this is definitely not meant for you! The above view is looking-down from the 78th floor trestle from the tallest building in Kuwait, Al Hamra Tower. We can see the top of the Luxury Center and the parked cars as tiny dots. I wish the same photo can be taken at night!

20140407_220047 (Large)So the long awaited Samsung Galaxy S5 has arrived to Kuwait. If you are planning to buy one right now you can find it in one of these places:

Al Babtain Samsung Dealer (Kuwait City & Hawally)

Wahran (Al Hamra Luxury Center)

Lulu Hypermarket

EUREKA (All branches)

Souq.com

ZAIN (Al Hamra Luxury Center)

VIVA

Wataniya Telecom

Now did I miss anything? Remember there are two models (3G & 4G) and there is 16GB and 32GB. The 3G should cost around KD190 (16GB) and the 4G (16 GB) around KD215. My advice is to wait a few weeks to allow the price to drop and users to give their feedback. I’m in love with the blue color, what about you?

20140128_084515 (Large)Spotted this Manhattan Taxi Cab on King Fahad highway sometime back and I was like “Huh, what is it doing in Kuwait?”. Isn’t it cool if they launch a taxi company with yellow cabs like those we see in NYC instead of those annoying Yota Corollas? I mean just looking at it would take me where I really wish to be! Yeah you guessed it, Times Square!
