The Kuwait Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI) will increase fees of New Civil ID from 2KD to 5KD and for replacement ID from 10KD to 20KD starting from the first of April 2016. Actually, the new fees increased double and still I don’t know why the fees of the Civil ID only increased.
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Sabah AlAhmad AlSabah Amir of Kuwait. The third AlMubarakiya Expo began last Thursday. The Expo and Festivals are available in every weekend in the national month of Kuwait – February from 4-9pm at AlMubarakiya Souk.
Have a look at our pervious posts coverage of AlMubarakiya Expo.
It’s almost the end of the first month of year 2016. During last weekend, I listed down for the upcoming events of Kuwait national February month. I heard about Winter Land Entertainment Area which is organized by Kuwait Public Authority for Sport. The Winter Land started on the 17th of January and will end by 1st of March 2016.
Therefore, I planned to visit Kuwait Winter Land last Friday afternoon. The entrance was for free. During my visit there are lots of activities for kids and adults to do such as horse riding, outdoor skating, games, food, boutiques, PaintBall and more. I actually had a great time enjoying the winter 9 degrees weather at Kuwait Winter Land. I liked the design of the area, management and even the activities. If have a time in the upcoming weekends, I suggest you to visit Kuwait Winter Land.

I saw a traditional creative building fully constructed near the Gulf Road. After I saw couple of posts on Instagram I knew this building is call Dar Hamad Restaurant. Successfully, the restaurant released a soft-opening period last week. Dar Hamad is a Kuwaiti Cuisine Restaurant serving traditional food created by Chef. Janan AlAssfour. The restaurant is also managed by MMC Catering Company.
Last week I went to Dar Hamad Restaurant for lunch. The staff welcomed us professionally and invited us to one our reserved table. I took the menu and ordered appetizers, main course and desserts. Overall, I liked their food, but I liked mostly the desserts.
The atmosphere and food quality were good, but the staff service wasn’t that much. I commented this issue to the restaurant manager regarding the food and staff service. Finally, the restaurant is still under soft-opening and hopefully it needs time to be successfully perfect. I rate Dar Hamad 06/10.

… Netflix is now global. #NetflixEverywhere
— Netflix US (@netflix) January 6, 2016
Yesterday, Netflix launched their services worldwide in more than 130 countries including Kuwait and Middle-East. This means you don’t need to access Netflix VPN or DNS anymore. All you need to signup on three different packages:
- Basic = $7.99 (2.400 KD) Monthly
- Standard = $9.99 (3.000 KD) Monthly
- Premium = $11.99 (3.600 KD) Monthly
I think Netflix done a great job by publishing their services worldwide and this could create high competition between other providers.
Yesterday was the last day of the year 2015. Therefore, I scheduled my day to spend my morning at The Avenues Mall. So I recorded some of the scenes during my walk in The Avenues Mall and shared it on @q8path Instagram account.. Additionally, I knew that Lego Store opened there first store in Kuwait at The Avenues Phase II.
