Do We Love Public Beach?

August 29th, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Economy | Kuwait Life | Others - (0 Comments)

BeachKuwaitI captured this photo weeks ago when I was walking around at Shuwaikh Beach. It was on Friday and most of the workers/staff take a break to gather around in Kuwait City. What I saw is a smelly messy beach. I thought if the public beach could be used as an entertainment zone with some games, cafes and activities.

CafeBazzaMishrefCafe Bazza is one of the popular cafes in Kuwait, which established under traditional local flavour theme. Last week, Cafe Bazza opened their 14th branch in West Mishref Coop. All of Cafe Bazza branches got the same theme, design and identity.

CafeBazzaKuwaitI was invited for the branch grand opening. I had full Arabic Breakfast and traditional tea style. Their are no comments with the food, but the cafe is small and if the tables could be more organized so their could be enough space between the tables.

DikakeenDikakeen opened there first branch at Salhiya Complex M2. Dikakeen means a group of kiosks in Arabic and is a part of the tapestry of Kuwaiti Culture. The main attraction of the space would showcase of live cooking by Kuwaiti Chefs with their take on local dishes.

Two days ago, I had a chance to choose Dikakeen Restaurant for lunch. Thanks god the place was empty. I ordered Dikakeen mix grill, salad and ’3aybooba Dessert (Chocolate Molten Cake with Sandwich ice-cream, cookies and lotus). Their food is so delicious and tasty. I really loved their food and congratulate the founders of creating this wonderful restaurant. If you haven’t been there yet I really suggest to taste their food. I rate Dikakeen’s food 09/10.

FairmontThePalmHotelFairmont The Palm Hotel & Resort is one of my best hotels in Dubai. If you are going for swimming and chilling next to the beach. I recommend you to stay at Fairmont The Palm Hotel.

DubaiPalmBeachDuring my recent Summer Vacation I booked my room at Fairmont The Palm Hotel & Resort. What I liked from this hotel are hospitality services, location, beach, swimming pool, beach view, lobby, hotel atmosphere, rooms and the royal services.

However, their are things I disliked such as the WiFi Internet Services should be FREE and not paid service. As well, they should add extra services for families, children and businessmen.

FalafelBurgerIn the first night, I sat in the hotel lobby and saw their dinner menu. So I chose this FalaFel Burger it was really delicious and tasty. I really loved their food, meals and buffet.

Finally, Fairmont The Palm Hotel & Resort will be your best choice if you are going for the beach, swimming or family trip.

CDCastleI almost know every store in this complex. I usually visit “Wala’a Complex” in Hawali every weekend alone to search out any new technology is up in the market. Beginning of 2005, I bought brand new HP & Dell laptop from Dubai.

These days, the internet is so expensive and as well the softwares. So I stayed wondering around Hawali to search for the best cheapest software store to add up some applications to my laptop. However, I kept visiting Hawali only to visit “CD Castle” store to buy new softwares and games to keep my laptop updated.

Does anyone still remember CD Castle Store!.

trafficmapkuwaitWe heard of different solutions, plans, ideas and reports regarding traffic in Kuwait. From what I see, still we live in a rush-time hours daily. Almost all day, we see the traffic jam spotted in most of highways. I believe this would never end up unless we see new streets, metro stations or new policies.

KuwaitiKidEid AlFitr is over now. I really haven’t enjoyed this Eid, especially most of our family members and friends escaped to start their vacation early this time. However, Eid AlFitr is were all muslims gather up after ramadan. Kids enjoyed Eid AlFitr the most, by earning the most “Eidiya” to buy what they need.

As usual, Zain Telecommunication Company never forget to hear their community feedback. Every year Zain invite us to watch the last rehearsal of Eid AlFitr Play. This year the play show called “Zain AlBehar“.

Zain AlBe7arThe play is presented by different young Kuwaiti stars. Briefly, the show is all about the sea world life and how people can love and help each other. Mostly kids would love the play and story.

ZainBe7arThe theatre is almost full yesterday. As well, guests would never miss the moment of sharing the play with their followers on Instagram and Twitter. At the end, I liked the story, decoration, technology used and the theatre.

I would like also to send pleasure regards to Zain CSR and Social Media Dept. for providing us the opportunity to attend the play.

VIVAKuwait4GMore than one month, I’m experiencing bad signal and data service from VIVA Kuwait Telecom. I spoke to the customer service 102 and reported about the issue. The employee said “We will take your request and get back to you”. After a week, I called the call centre to follow-up my request. As well the employee said, “We will contact you when we solve up the issue”.

Weeks and weeks went over. Five days ago, I posted this issue on @q8path Instagram. VIVA Social Media staff requested my mobile number and I followed up with them. One of the network relation staff called me and said we will solve the issue soon.

Till this moment, nothing is solved yet. Well, I’m fed up with calling and calling the customer relations to solve the issue. I will wait for the contract to end this September and move to other telecommunication company in Kuwait which take care of their customers.
