With 1KD food voucher you can donate to autistic children (ABC Centre). I passed today to Taste of Boubyan event organized by Boubyan Bank and Kuwait Concierge. At The Regency Hotel beach garden different food small businesses participated in the event. In the main entrance you have just to purchase 1KD vouchers, choose one of the restaurants and enjoy the food/view/location.
I believe we do have creative and talented people. Today I was in South area of Salmiya near fifth ring road buildings. I was searching for laundry, so I entered to different pathway. Suddenly I saw a power station with creative art work. This art of Joker Batman comic inspired me and I mark it as the one of the best art work I saw.
Stone Grill opened before years ago their first branch in Salmiya. Currently they also operate in Menus Complex – Abu Halifa. Last Wednesday, I was invited for bloggers night. I got the menu and chose to have for dinner Nachos, Stone Steak and lemon juice. Nachos were gave as an appetizer, well I disliked it and even not continued eating their nachos. It is absolutely dry and the cheese is so stuck with potato.
Moreover, the waiter gave me the cooking uniform and bought the stone for me to cook. I cooked my own steaks by placing the beef steak directly to stone and flipping over till it is well done cooked. After that I added the barbecue sauce with some vegetables on the side. I don’t have any comments on the steaks.
The overall experience went good, but I rate Stone Grill food 04/10 because I don’t even see any changes or nothing new that impress me. I really wish if they could start changing and adding up new dishes to their menu.
Google celebrates International Women’s Day of 2014. “Women have historically been underrepresented in almost all fields: science, school curricula, business, politics — and, sadly, doodles. In addition to our continued effort for doodle diversity and inclusion, this truly International Women’s Day doodle features a host of over a 100 inspiring women from around the world”.

Finyal Wa Beiyala Cafe new small business established recently in Kuwait. Someone knocked the door and gave us a lovely heavy basket. I opened the basket and saw this gift from Finyal Wa Beiyala Cafe. I tasted both of Arabic Coffee and Tea with milk. The Arabic Coffee is not cooked and made well, but the tea with milk drink has no comments. The dates added on the side also good but I recommend if it could be packed in other package.

I received lovely healthy gift from Choicesfoodco. If you drink green tea daily, you can try Sencha Green Tea Leaf Mints. Three mints equal one cup of green antioxidants. All made of natural ingredients with organic and fair trade Green Tea Extract. I started a plan from last Wednesday, by taking 3 mints daily and avoiding drinking green tea.
We own two falcons kept under a special care. However, one of them flew away and never got back again. After days we got a call from someone from Saudi Arabia founded the falcon died between the trees. They cost more than five hundred Kuwaiti diners. I dislike flacons but my uncle love to use them hunting. Flacons got a value but if the owner know’s how to deal with them.
One of the great apps I used today is Seene. With this mobile app you are able to create 3D images without using any specialized camera or equipment. The image can be shared in the app social channel or saved in the mobile library.
Early morning of last Friday I drove down to AlWafrah Farms. I knew there is a special Farmers Market organized every weekend. It was my first visit to Yasmin Farm owned by AlBan Dairy and couple of investors. Well, it was really late when I reached the farm as I got lost during my way. I used Google Maps and my car navigation GPS till I lastly reached the farm.
However, I entered the farm and parked my car in the parking permit area of the farm. Guests mostly welcome to have a tour in the farm. Therefore, I paid 1KD/per person for our tour inside the farm. Myself and my family members went inside the golf car with a tour guide to the main factory area.
The farm attractions are AlBan Dairy Factory, Cows, Sheep, Goats, Vegetables and Fruits.
On the way out guests can buy Yasmin Farm products from Yasmin’s Store. Different products are available such as vegetables, fruits, diaries, Honey, Spices and Olives. I enjoyed the visiting the farm, but got stressed of driving down to the farms and getting lost for hours. Don’t get stuck from what I experienced.
To reach the farm go to Google maps on your smart-phone and type your destination to Yasmin Farm [map].
Chanel innovated in Paris Fashion Week Show by transforming the runway into supermarket. Chanel Shopping Center provided the backdrop for Chanel’s 2014/15 Fall-Winter Ready-To-Wear collection. The sprawling supermarket, constructed for the occasion beneath the glass roof of the Grand Palais, made for a tongue-in-cheek setting that evoked the consumerist culture imagery of Pop Art as well as the concept of easy everyday luxury. More than 3,400 guests browsed shelves stocked with goods renamed and packaged especially for the show Chanel-branded beverages, groceries, fresh produce and home improvement supplies – before taking their seats as the 79 models began their sweep through the aisles. As well, all the food and products are donated to charities.
Karl Lagerfeld’s collection resonates with his resolutely modern take on the Chanel vocabulary, electrified by a distinctly urban vibe. Sneakers are the footwear of choice, paired with blazers, dresses and coats, and in knee-high lace-up boot hybrids; the models, freed from heels, had a definite spring in their step.
I really find it interesting to use Supermarket theme to promote their products at Paris Fashion Week Show.
