Short and sweet post of the day-

I heard that Arwa (owned by The CocaCola Company) implants had been using sewage water in the water they’re selling? I know water treatment plants treat sewage and waste water till it’s safe to drink, but apparently there’s backlash as to how clean this water actually is? A friend of mine told me that all the water has been recalled and thrown up because it’s unsafe.

Has anyone heard about any of this? Is it true?

I recently came across a gorgeous little boutique called Second Ring Road. Their dresses are tailored perfectly for all the trendy fashionistas in the region.

Second Ring Road is a small boutique established by young Kuwaiti girls in 2011 to introduce new and exciting evening dresses and gowns. Their mission is to provide the customer with a product that has significant class and elegance with very good quality and price.

They make efforts to travel to international fashion shows to find the best designers around the world and deal with them. All their products are extremely beautiful and on trend.

I’m going to be purchasing a couple hundred dresses from there very VERY soon- as soon as I make up my mind on which ones I like the most.

You can find their stuff on their website www.secondringroad.com. You’ll thank me later!

During the past week I was invited to the newest venue for the Stonegrill franchise in Abu Halifa. I’ve been hearing a lot about the restaurant and was FINALLY able to try it first hand.

DSC_6960

The atmosphere is very cosy, and the lighting is dim-which might not appeal to everyone, but we had a great time and I will definitely be back again!

The concept of the restaurant is that you get to grill your own food, regardless of if it’s chicken, steak, or shrimp. Each person gets an extremely hot stone where they put their food on it and cook it to their preference. You are given a bib for safety reasons as well as not to make your clothes smell like food.

Overall, it was an amazing experience and an even more amazing concept. You can visit Stonegrill either in Omniya Center in Salmiya, or Abu Halifa in Menus mall.

If you have been to Second Cup or Coffee Republic recently, you may have seen an exciting new innovation in Kuwait. Boloro Tap and Pay is a new payments service where Viva and Zain customers can use their mobile balance to pay for purchases.

coffee_1

Making a payment is easy – just tap your sticker at the Point of Sale at a Boloro Merchant and you will receive an SMS asking you to enter your secret PIN to authorize the transaction. Reply to the SMS with your PIN and the transaction is approved.

Boloro is fast, convenient and secure and you never have to share your personal financial information online or in stores. To pay with Boloro, all you need is a mobile phone and the Boloro sticker. Boloro works with all types of phones and since it is not an app, no internet access is required to use it. The Boloro sticker uses NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, which means that a simple tap at the retailer initiates the transaction directly from your mobile. To pay online, you simply have to input your mobile number and authorize the transaction via SMS.

NFC reader

To get started, you just need to activate Boloro once – get a Boloro sticker from your Mobile Network Operator (Viva or Zain), or a participating Merchant (Second Cup or Coffee Republic) and SMS the 16-digit sticker code to 281. Once activated, you will receive a 4-digit security PIN, which you must not share with anyone. Your 4-digit PIN is used to approve all transactions through Boloro.

This hip and fun new way to pay is currently available to Viva prepaid and post-paid and Zain prepaid customers in Kuwait. Boloro is available at several retailers and merchants throughout Kuwait. Last year, Boloro announced a successful pilot with KPTC and CityBus, where customers used Boloro Tap and Go to ride the bus. Presently, you can use it at Second Cup and Coffee Republic outlets, as well as to top up your CashU balance online. Soon it will be expanding to more retailers and websites in the region.

Second cup

Boloro has been launched by Boloro Kuwait, the first of its kind regional mobile payment company based in Kuwait City. Its aim is to improve the lives of people in the MENA region by fueling online and point of purchase commerce by offering secure and convenient payment alternatives to mobile phone customers, through the Boloro Mobile Payments Platform.
