I think there are special moments during the day to pick-up your coffee. During my last trip to London, I usually pick-up my Starbucks Coffee before I have lunch. I love to drink Starbucks Coffee in London because it got a unique taste and cheap price compared to Kuwait. In London Mayfair you can find Starbucks almost in every street.
I will be traveling today to London Heathrow for a long vacation and medical treatment in United Kingdom. Q8Path will stop posting from today till the next three days. You can also follow us on Instagram @q8path to find my latest posts.
Good Bye everyone and see you back soon!
Today, during lunch I was using my iPhone and texting one of my friends on Whatsapp. My mam started to laugh, I told her “What makes you to laugh”. She said, “Here is your first phone I kept it in my cupboard, when you moved in to our new home”. I also did laugh when I saw my first mobile phone.
This is Nokia phone (without GSM & SIM Card). My father bought it for me when I was 9 years old. This was during the trend of Mobile Telecommunication Company (Zain Kuwait Now) when they started opening for citizens to own a mobile phone. I remembered back when I carry this phone with my friends for show-off and my name tagged on it. What a lovely days!.
In my recent visit to Dubai last week. I stayed in Vida Hotels and Resorts - Downtown Dubai. It was my first time to stay in Vida Hotels and Dubai Downtown. I arrived at 10am in the morning. I checked-in and sat two hours waiting for my room to be free and cleaned. Actually, the hotel is nearby Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and Dubai Boulevard Village.
Around 12pm, I got my room ready. The room is so fabulous, clean and luxury. I book for a king standard room, which is good for one or two guests. I disliked the setup of an open plan bathroom, with a separate shower and toilet.
The hotel designed for intuitive style, convenience, comfort and sensory stimulation. Finally, I enjoyed my one night stay in Vida Hotels and Resorts – Downtown Dubai. I recommend families or businessmen to choose Vida hotel as for the best comfortable place to stay in. I rate Vida hotel 09/10.
I was in Dubai last Wednesday and stayed one day only for some work. However, I stayed all Wednesday morning and afternoon to cover up some meetings. At night, I dropped my bag in the hotel and kept walking down in Dubai Downtown. I haven’t been their since three years in the Dubai Downtown. During my walk in the downtown, suddenly a showery rain came in the town and I forced myself to enjoy this moment to continue walking down the path.
However, I founded lots of things changed in the town. What can you do a night in Dubai Downtown:
- Dinner or coffee in one of the restaurant & cafes
- Rent a bike and enjoy the ride downtown
- Walk down the town through Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain area
- Take a ride in one of the fountain boats
- Visit Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa or The Address Hotel
- Dubai Boulevard Village
The 72,000 sq garden, Dubai Miracle Garden contains over 45 million flowers with fashioned shapes of hearts, stars, igloos, pyramids and more. I went to some attractive areas in Dubai. This was my first visit to Dubai Miracle Garden located in Dubailand area. The garden is so attractive, colourful and amazing place to have a tour.
I arrived at 4pm afternoon and nearly completed most of the areas. Beginning of year 2014, the garden also opened the second phase were they added more objects and attractions. In every yard, you can find seating areas, cafes, restrooms and assistants. The garage garden is the most zone I love were parts of old cars placed and decorated with flowers. The entrance ticket cost 30AED per adult for the both phases. I recommend anyone haven’t visited the garden yet, to get a chance to look around and take some photos.
I was in Dubai last two days. I remember the last time I visited Dubai was October 2013. I realized there are new things coming up every month such as roads, buildings, activities, entertainments and more. Visiting Dubai is really enjoyable for everyone. I done some shopping, visited some attractive areas and done some work. Will be posting shortly some of the places I visited in Dubai. What a great City!
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.
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].
Last month I tried a trial period of Diet Care new menu lunch dishes. Diet Care is a healthy centre that serves a great variety of healthy food delivered to your home.
Day 1 Lunch: Spaghetti with Meatballs, Caesar Salad and Broccoli Soup.
Day 2 Lunch: Chicken Beryani, Persian Yogurt Salad, Chocolate balls.
Day 3 Lunch: Chicken with cheese mushroom sauce, potato, pomelo mango salad and greek potato salad.
Day 4 Lunch: Fish hamour, Caesar Salad and Soup.
Day 5 Lunch: Chicken Shish Taouk with rice, Persian Yogurt Salad and Strawberry Cake.
Regarding their food tastes it is quite good. But I disliked the fish hamour dish because it was exhale with fish smell and not cooked well. Otherwise all the other meals are fine. I also liked diet care desserts they are tasty and delicious to have after your meal. Having a 600Cal lunch everyday is healthy and great management to manage our daily calories.
Kuwait Celebrates the National Day (25 of February) and the Libration Day (26 of February). It is a long holiday this time starting from today night till Saturday night. Most of the people are spending their holiday by traveling, going to chalet or camping. I’m spending the next five days in Khairan with my family.
Happy Kuwait National and Libration Day!
