Last Wednesday, the Kuwaiti athlete Fehaid AlDeehani won the first gold medal at the Olympics. He came the first in the men’s double trap shooting event. Since Kuwait is officially banned from the Olympics, as well the Kuwait flag was not raised during the ceremony. Fehaid AlDeehani tried his best to won the medal independently. We wish you all the best Fehaid AlDeehani.
Café Bateel opened there first branch in Kuwait – The Avenues Mall (Grand Avenues) same location as Napket before. Last week, I had a chance to visit the cafe for breakfast. I had Arabic Coffee, omelete and date toast. From my first visit to the cafe, I enjoyed the location and food. The food took more than 30 minutes to be delivered and their hospitality service need to be much better. Finally, Café Bateel is in town. I rate Café Bateel Kuwait 07/10.
Today is my first visit to Kuwait Towers after the renovation. The weather was dusty and bit cloudy, so I wasn’t sure if I could take city view photos inside the tower. I arrived in the afternoon, purchased my ticket only visiting the viewing sphere which cost 3KD only.
I entered the entrance gate and went up to Floor 120. Since it was dusty and the windows wasn’t cleared, I didn’t managed to capture photos expect the photo above.
The last time I visited Kuwait Towers was in 2011. From my visit today I cannot see any changes in the tower expect some of the major renovation such as the floor, toilets, tables and bit more. I rate my visit to Kuwait Towers today 06/10.

Coffee are starting to be trendy in Kuwait. I cannot imagine that every couple of months I hear about a new pure coffee cafes are launched in town. I’m actually on of the coffee drinker, especially in the morning when I need a latte, Americano or Cappuccino to start my day.
I saw couple of posts on Instagram and Twitter about a new coffee started recently. Richard’s Coffee was launched week ago Thursday, March 17th 2016. The concept of Richard’s Coffee to be available only 90 day at Bao Cafe and they will close down and move on to new location.
Therefore, I visited Richard’s Coffee yesterday afternoon and tried their most popular coffee (Salted Cold Drink Coffee). I’m actually inspired with the taste of the coffee and ingredients. I rate Richard’s Coffee 09/10 and recommend you to get your coffee from Richard’s.
Richard’s Coffee open’s daily for the next 80 days from 7am till 10pm except on Fridays from 4pm to 10pm.
