A new summer activity?

You’ve seen this thing, the jetlev flyer, before on email forwards or on tv, right? It was finally made available for people to buy last month. People now can buy this thing and start flying all over Kuwait’s beaches this summer :P

Jetlev is available in 2 models:

  1. The one with 155 HP costs € 99,000. Around KD 38,000.
  2. The one with 215 HP costs € 119,000. Around KD 46,000.

With these prices could the jetlev flyer be the next big summer activity in Kuwait? To use this machine you need 10 hours of training first, but I’m totally picturing this machine being rented in Kuwait for say, KD20 for a 10 minutes ride, with less than 10 seconds worth of training.

Thanks Fawaz

Finally Horlicks is Here

5 05 2009

Posted By Mishary.

Almost five years ago the first time I visited Yousef while he was studying in Dubai, he was always taking me to a tea shop to drink some kind of milk called Horlicks milk.. It tastes amazing.. it was like magic!! It gives the milk a flavor of what shall I call it.. marries biscuit, I was really enjoying it and Yousef was insisting that there is nothing special with this recipe you can find it in Kuwait, I was like how could it be? and on my last visit to Dubai Yousef told me that Mishref’s co. op got it and guess what ? I went and found it ! I will try it and update you with the result :)

Seeing Doubles

Yeah so I was looking for this book ‘The cry of the peacock’ in every country I’m in for about a year and a half now, I even told my brother to look for it all over london when he was vacationing there last christmas (maskeen dar 390 book shops with no luck. It’s out of stock and print, he said). So I finally had to order something off amazon and thought might as well include a couple of books in the shipment (I hate ordering online coz I don’t like to wait for stuff to be delivered. Yup I’d rather waste a year looking for the book instead). So when I finally received the book it turned out that I ordered more than one copy (not shifa7a, promise!). Anyones interested? I’m giving them away.. (the extra copies that is :P )

So.. (so many so’s in one post), I want to say something to those who like to read and immerse themselves in good books with middle eastern backgrounds.

1-”The Bastard of Istanbul” by the turkish author Elif Shafak is one of the best books I’ve ever read, it’s up there with the kite runner (yep thats the book I compare other books to). You have to read it if you haven’t done so already.

2-Alf Laila’s blog. It’s a blog by a talented Kuwaiti author. I’ve been following her writings and stories for a long time now, and I think she’s got the ability to write stories like the best of them. I hope she gets the recognition she deserves and I also hope that she finds it in herself to write the remaining parts of her latest story, Doubt, faster!

Zain’s New Adapter

zains-latest-router_1

I passed by Zain’s Mohalab branch today to get the new adapter, which comes along with an ego once you subscribe with their service for a year.

The differences between the new adapter and the router are:

  1. The adapter doesn’t need a dedicated sim card to be wifi spot, instead I can plug in the ego to create a wireless network.
  2. It works in the car, using the cigarette lighter socket (car plug included in the box).
  3. Much smaller than the router.

Fly Fish

2 05 2009

Posted By Yousef

Since summer have officially begun, the guys at our chalet inflated the Fly Fish and went on with their annual summer routine, which lasts through out the summer. The Fly Fish is basically 3 Bananas stuck together, and it flies when the boat pulling it goes fast enough.

I tried it for the first time today, and it beat all my expectations and more importantly my worries were subsided. it doesn’t strain your muscles, it doesn’t wear you down, and when it leaves the water and goes up in the air it isn’t as scary as it looks. It’s just awesome!

Today ANM on her way to the university, she spotted a new branch of Oula gas stations in Mishref near the ACK, the design is somehow similar to those in Europe (with a Mini Market).

Thanks ANM
