American Express Accepting K-Net Online

Today i got a phone call from 9K2HN telling me that Amex now accepts online payments! Yes finally! i did login to my account and found this:

As you can see above they are accepting K-Net for Kuwait as an option, i didnt try it yet but according to 9K2HN the exchange rate was something around 0.269 which is fair in my opinion.

Anyway Thanks a lot 9K2HN for this ebsharaaa πŸ˜›

After 2 planes and a taxi we arrived at 9 something yesterday. We were all exhausted and wanted to sleep, but no, we had to get our rented car from europcar, and we did, then went to GÉANT to stock up on everthing. Then finally returned back home, where I happily drifted out of consciousness.

I went outside, After taking a 2 hour nap, and took some pictures of the cherry tree near us. Labeeba, These pictures are for you πŸ™‚ I was planning on taking pictures of that tree even before anyone told me coz the cherries looked great!

Couple days ago me and Yousef decided to transfer our blog to wordpress.org so that we get more control and options on our blog but Yousef faced some issues such as the old posts?! How could we transfer them .. (( i mean the text and pictures)) coz now i think the only way we could is to transfer the text and uploading the pics manually for the old posts which will takes ages! So any one tried it? i mean to transfer from .COM to .ORG? whats the steps? and for the hosting we’re considering DreamHost.

We appreciate your help guys πŸ˜›





In Frankfurt Airport

Posted By Yousef

I’m in frankfurt airport right now and waiting for my next flight to geneva. The flight took off as scheduled and was real smooth flight. I usually can’t sleep when i’m traveling, but this time I was asleep as soon as they turned off the lights. I remember thinking why can’t I sleep like every other person in the world! then it…. blurred… Zzzz… Breakfast! Thats it. Thats all I remember. I woke up, ate breakfast and took some photos and we landed.

The next flight is an hour and 10 minutes away, it should be a short flight, maybe an hour .

From now on and till I return to Kuwait, I’ll be posting from wherever I’m at. Nothing will change regarding my posting patterns, Maybe more colorful photos and better scenes πŸ˜› but thats about it. Can’t wait to really use my camera.

A few days ago i was in my father’s in law house, and found out that Bashar got a full collection of Grendizer with traditional Arabic language. In my opinion it was one of the greatest cartoons ever, that have been translated to Arabic.

It’s a set of 4 DVD packages and each one has 3 – 4 DVD and according to Bashar they are of high quality.

You can order them from HERE, You can order any language you wish from this series.

BTW does anyone have any idea when it was first produced? i mean originally in Japan?

Thanks Bashar.

UPDATE:

Anime: UFO Robot Grandizer
Episodes: 74 episodes
Year: 5/10/1975 till 27/2/1977
