Yes we have them! We have some mango trees in our home and yesterday INM spotted some mangos in them. I didn’t know that some day they might give us some mangos.. especially with our kid of nearly 50’s degrees’ weather!

Anyway thanks INM.





Breakfast in Alzour Indian Restaurant

We woke up around 9 and went to this indian restaurant which is about 15 minutes away from the chalet. It was my first time to eat there, they used to bring food from the resaurant for dinner or lunch, but I never went there myself.

The Baith 6oma6 (Eggs with Tomatoes) was gewd. Their Tea with milk was good too, but not as good as the UAE’s Karak I used to drink in Sharjah.

i found this site ewasfat which i think is pretty good and helpful for those of you who love to cook. Its an online recipes source, they claim that they have more than 1000 recipes. Most of the recipes are from the Arabian cuisine.

Note: At first I thought this incident happened in Kuwait, But I just read on another blog that it might’ve happened in the UAE. We don’t know where it happened, just enjoy the video, feel disgusted and move on! πŸ˜›

Thanks Tareq.





Get a Snap Capp

Posted By Mishary.

the Snap Capp is something very special, and yet is so simple. Simply put, the Snap Capp is β€œa plastic re-closable top designed to snap onto virtually all 12 and 16 ounce aluminum beverage cans”.
The Snap Capp also comes in handy on picnics or other outdoor outings. You may have noticed that when an open can is left out in the open, bees and other bugs sense the sugar and love to fly in.

Here how it works .. i think its pretty smart idea!

You should be able to pick up 3-packs for around KD2.600 HERE but its still not available πŸ˜›

Thanks INM

UPDATE:

According to one of our readers they are available HERE.

Thanks DVLz





Medium Means Well-Done in Kuwait

22 05 2008

Posted By Yousef

We went to Nino and ordered 2 of their certified angus beef, and we asked for a medium cook. we got 2 well done steaks instead. My friend started eating his and I returned mine. after waiting 10 more minutes I got a rare steak.. so I sent it back again. My friend was half way through his steak when they finally brought my medium cooked steak.

Things I don’t understand:

1- Why do restaurants always hear welldone when I say medium?
2- Why do restaurants punish customers who return steaks?
3- why did my friend eat his well done steak when his original order was a medium steak?
4- if it doesn’t really matter what kind of steak he ends up eating, why then did he specify?
5- How come I return my dish twice and end up eating after my friend’s done eating and get nothing more than a little lame apology from the waiter?
6- Why are people considered difficult when they refuse to eat things they did not order?

If we all became indifferent to what kind of steaks we end up eating then the whole steak-cooking system would become obsolete! I won’t let that happen! πŸ˜›
