Maki Kuwait, keeps disappointing me

Posted in food, kuwait, review at 4:35 pm by Salah


The first time i visited Maki was 3 years ago at marina. Although the place was great, the service wasn’t something to be proud of. To this day, i remember the dull face our waiter had the whole time he waited our table. The reason, however, that made me decide not to go there again was the bad pricing. It was just for a person who tried many sushi places in the states, too expensive.

For some reason, few years later, i decided i want to give Maki another shot after i have tried places like wasabi and osaka. Guess what, Maki still beats them with the rediculous prices, and the food wasn’t special or even worth the price.

Today (2 years since my last visit to Maki), a friend of mine suggested we hit Maki. i didn’t want to bitch about it, so i agreed. However, the prices are still the same, and the food as well. Next time anyone, and i mean ANYONE, who suggest to me Maki, i will easily turn down and refuse. It’s official, the place is just overpriced compared to osaka, which is way cheaper than Maki and the food is just as good if it wasn’t better.

Sorry for the vague review, but I’m blogging from my ipad, and I can’t go into so many details using it. Maybe I will review it and compare it in detail when I’m on my laptop.

Kuwaiti TV figures’ original nationalties

Posted in celebrities, funny, kuwait, Music, TV at 5:02 pm by Salah

Here is a fun post I found online on one of the forums. Even though the statements seems so true, it did not come from a credible source.

جناسي ممثلين و ممثلات الكويت, و لكن المعلومات ليست مصدقة و قد تكون غير صحيحة. الا ان بعض المعلومات انا شخصيا سمعت عنها كثيرا الى حد اني صدقتها, مثل بو شهري جنسيته ايراني.

Kuwait’s ministry of information is back online

Posted in Internet, kuwait, Music, news, review, services, TV at 11:58 am by Salah

For a while now the MOI website of Kuwait was down for some adjustment I think. Now they are back in a very good shape.

I used to go to this website all the time, especially when I first came to the U.S. Even though Kuwait channels aren’t that interesting, you might want to take a peek at it.

The old website was boring, and didn’t have enough links and stuff. Now the website is filled with links and websites related to the TV and broadcasting, magazines, newspapers, radio stations and many other things. So even if you don’t want to watch KTV, you can find links for other stations like AL-RAI TV.


It’s worth a visit.

No internet for a while Kuwait

Posted in electronics, Internet, kuwait, news, services tagged , , , , , at 11:41 am by Salah

Internet disruption occurred and it is affecting “Large swathes of Asia, the Middle East and north Africa…There were contradictory reports on the real cause behind the disruption, but Du, a state-owned Dubai telecom provider, attributed it to an undersea cable cut between Alexandria, Egypt and Palermo, Italy.”(cnn.com)[link]

It was also mentioned in the website that “Kuwait’s Ministry of Communications said the problem could take two weeks to solve, according to a statement carried by the state news agency, KUNA.” (cnn.com) [link]

Yea so you’ll be pissed for a while if you’re in the effected region.

Blu-ray on my screen

Posted in electronics, kuwait, personal, review, services, TV, USA, video games at 9:43 am by Salah

Picture taken from http://www.gearcritech.com

At last I rented a Blu-ray movie, watched it, and experienced the whole thing. The whole experience was beautiful, amazing, and worth every penny for the TV, PS3, and home theater.

I went to Blockbuster to look for a Blu-ray movie that is filled with graphics and cool stuff so that I can get all the juice out of the system and screen. At first I had Fantastic 4 in my mind because I knew that it was available in the store. Nevertheless, there was Spider-man 3! I knew that Spider-man was out on DVD but I also knew that it’s going to be out of stock for a while. It was the only one DVD available in store. I picked it up and I also got Pearl Harbor.

I have to say that Spider-man is worth buying if you want to buy a Blu-ray movie. The fights between spider-man and the other bad guys was breath taking.

What I am getting at is that the Blu-ray is one hell of a picture and experience. If you you want to invest your money in home entertainment, then aim for Blu-ray. The only problem is that in Kuwait Blu-ray is kind of expensive, but prices will drop soon.

How much is a PS3 now in Kuwait anyway?

FIFA and Kuwait

Posted in kuwait, news, sports at 9:05 pm by Salah

So the FIFA banned Kuwait “from all international matches because of governmental interference in the national game.” (www.soccernet.espn.go.com). [Link]

I got the link from Mark’s blog at http://www.248am.com

It just keeps rolling in Kuwait.

SAW IV is on

Posted in kuwait, movies, personal, review at 12:12 pm by Salah

Yesterday, Friday October 25th, SAW IV started playing in the theaters. I watched the whole three sequels of SAW. Although the ending of SAW on the last sequel was good, I was not very pleased with how the ended it. It just wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. Now that SAW IV is on, I’m thinking that the whole smart ending is going to be on that sequel. I’m going to the movie tonight with a friend and I just hope it won’t be a loss of time. Specially that the theater is going to be crowded. I mean really crowded because of the whole Halloween thing. The Yahoo user movie-ratings are not stable yet. It’s only 900 and some users that rated the movie. So far it’s rated B, but that absolutely says nothing about the movie. If I had time tonight, I’ll post something about the movie after I watch it. By the way, is SAW allowed in the movies in Kuwait? I think it is not allowed to be played in the theater, right?

My plasma TV

Posted in electronics, kuwait, personal, review, TV, video games at 1:59 pm by Salah


Last time I posted a small topic about my new LG plasma. Now this is my second more-detailed topic.

I bought the TV from best buy and it was priced for $1199 $1100. However that’s before tax, the HDMI cables, and the warranty. The price after all those things came close to $1700. I bought two HDMI cables, each cost about $80. The warranty is for $250.

Now let’s talk about the TV. Read the rest of this entry »

تقبل الله طاعتكم و عيدكم مبارك

Posted in kuwait, Music, occasions, personal at 2:07 pm by Salah

بعد انقطاع طويل عن البلوج و عن كتابة المواضيع ابي اقولكم اني أعتذر على هالتأخير.

و أتمنى ان الكل يكون مستمتع بلحظات الفرح في عيد الفطر السعيد.

و هذه اغنية اهداء مني حقكم. هالأغنية بس أسمعها أتذكر أول يوم عيد الصبح مع التجهيز والاستعداد حق السلام والترحيب بالأهل والأصحاب.

والدشداشة اليديدة اللي امس مطلعها من الخياط مكوية و جاهزة معلقة ورا الباب. و الغترة أيضا جاهزة, و ريحة العطور والبخور ودهن العود.

الديرة كلها كاشخة و متسنعة والجو ولا أحلى, والناس كلها مستانسة.

كل هذا صورة تدش براسي لمن أسمع هالأغنية و غيرها من أغاني العيد القديمة بالذات.

عيدكم مبارك و كل عام و انتوا بخر والله يعوده عليكم بالخير والصحة والسلامة.
