InstagramSpamSince Instagram announced their will clean up all spam/fake accounts. This message was placed before a while. I did not believe that Instagram can not control the spam accounts, but today I discovered many celebrities in Kuwait and worldwide lost hundreds and thousands of followers in minutes.

instagramfollowerskuwaitKuwaitiful posted List of Celebrities That Lost Thousands of Followers on Instagram. This time Instagram done a great work on managing the followers.What’s funny, accounts had lost over 10,000 followers in onetime. Actually, we compare number of followers and clearly estimate who bought followers.

VerifiedInstagramMoreover, Instagram will move soon on verifying all accounts. This step will be announced soon by Instagram community to make sure their is no any spams/fake accounts in future. Instagram done a great job and I think it is a great strategy applied by end of the year.

Ridley’s Burger

December 19th, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Kuwait Life | Others | Restaurant/Food | Reviews - (0 Comments)

Ridley'sBurgerM2 is a new food/restaurant zone opened months ago at Salhiya Complex. Every time I pass by M2 I see no seats available at Ridley’s Burger. However, days back I went to Ridley’s Burger for lunch and saw the place almost free. The waiter bought the iPads and I ordered original burger with french and pumpkin fries. After I had my lunch I can say it is the best burger I never had in life. Comments: delicious and juicy only.

Location: M2 – Salhiya Complex

BocciniPizzeriaLast March Boccini Pizzeria launched their first branch at Mahboula – Levels Complex. I attended the grand opening and you read our pervious post. Days ago, Boccini Pizzeria Restaurant opened a second branch at The Avenues Mall (Soku) the same place as Nestle Toll House before.

BocciniTheAvenuesI got an invitation from Boccini Pizzeria to review their new menu. However, last Wednesday I drove down to The Avenues Mall to review Boccini Pizzeria food for lunch. The branch manager welcomed us, gave us the menu and recommended to taste the new dishes such as Aranicini Aua Margeritta, Gamberi Crocanti, Mini Pizza Slider, Carne Alla Griglia (Ribeye), Tagliantelle Funghi, Fazzoletti Capriciosa, Insalata Di Cassa and Insalata Dello Cheff.

From all of the new dishes I liked the Mini Pizza Slider, Fazzoletti Capriciosa, Gamberi Crocanti and Insalata Dello Cheff. I founded the Mini Pizza Slider is the most delicious one. Overall, all dishes are great without any comments. I rate Boccini Italian Pizzeria food (09/10) and location (09/10).

Old Is Gold.

KuwaitSubwaysIn Kuwait you can find suburbs lives the same old-days lifestyle. Souk AlMubarakiya is a small town has the same historical life. I really love to go around AlMubarakiya to find out about our history and find some historical information. This image is one of my latest photo I captured last week at Souk AlMubarikya.

TheNomadKitchenThe Nomad Kitchen is a new food truck concept by Gastronomica Group, the same group of Slider Station, b+f Burger Boutique, b+f Open Flame Kitchen and b+f Roadside Diner. The airstream food truck just launched last Monday at Gulf Run 2014 event.

I saw their new menu next to the truck and asked the cashier to suggest what to have for dinner. She suggested The 1973 Burger, Rib-eye Steak Shawarma, Commando Fries and Blackberry Lemonade.

As for the 1973 burger, unfortunately it was so oily starting with the bun and not cooked well. The Rib-eye Steak Shawarma, I was dying to taste, but unfortunately it turned out with dry beef, overly burned and disliked the taste.

All in all, Nomad Kitchen got very similar taste to b+f restaurants. Well I prefer if the concept could change from Slide Station and b+f Burger Boutique sauces and taste. I liked the concept of the airstream food truck, but I disliked their new menu and the way it’s delivered. I am one of b+f Burger Boutique lovers, but I think Nomad Kitchen broke the concept between the Slider Station and b+f Burger Boutique.

 

Apple&SamsungTons of smart-phones are available in market. iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are the most demanded phones in this period. Each of them got major specifications and features. But if you are looking for a device we the best high tech I prefer iPhone 6 Plus. I love iPhone 6 plus camera, touches, design and specs. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera is the main feature I love from Galaxy Note 4. Since I hate Android OS I prefer to use iPhone 6 Plus as my mini smart-phone tablet.

LoadedWedgesThe co-founders of the restaurant welcomed us and directed us to our table. I got a set menu with the new dishes marked down, plus the a special rating card to rate / comment on each dish. For appetizers, I chose to Sesame Prawn Toast and Loaded Wedges. Sesame Prawn Toast is made of toast a prawn with some sesame added on the top. Loaded Wedges is potato wedges with some special sauce and cheese added on the top. I liked the Loaded Wedges the most. I recommend to add some chicken, beef or nuts at the top of the wedges which will taste much better.

T-BurgerFor the main dish, I chose to take Chicken Parmi and T-Burger. The Chicken Parmi is made of chicken with pesto pasta, sadly the pesto pasta sauce wasn’t that tasty. Well, the T-Burger is my master main dish. Made of toast bread, beef burger, cheese and sweet chilly sauce. It was amazing!.

ChocolateBrownieAfter five dishes, it is the time to have some dessert. I chose to have Chocolate Brownie Fudge and Roast & Toast. Both of them were delicious, but the Chocolate Brownie Fudge is the king here.

Finally, it was a wonderful night and great opportunity to taste The Gathering Bistro new menu. I rate The Gathering Bistro new menu 06/10 and food quality 08/10.

Things To Do In Washington DC

November 15th, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Others | Personal | Reviews | Travel | World Life - (0 Comments)

TheWhiteHouseWashington DC is United States of America Capital State. DC formally known as the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, “the District”. I stayed a month in Washington DC and Virginia the state next to DC. I almost visited every part of DC. There are no much to do except museums, cafes and restaurants. The weather is almost wonderful. I liked the people, weather, atmosphere and culture.

madame tussaudsMadame tussauds – Washington DC brand, is the first museum I visited. Madame Tussaud’s is a wax museum founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud and was formerly known as “Madame Tussaud’s”; the apostrophe is no longer used. I actually, disliked the museum it doesn’t worth to pay $45 for a small museum, were every character is closed and have to pay money to take some photos.

GeorgeTownGeorge Town Market is the only popular market in Washington DC you can find luxury brands and stores in this street.

WashingtonDCChinaTownChina Town is a rush place in Washington DC. You can find china stores, restaurants, cinema and more.

I stayed one month in DC and suffered from finding Halal Restaurants/food. Virginia got many halal food stores, but I need a long journey to reach there. However, it was a lovely trip to Washington DC and I already missed DC.

NewYorkJust few weeks left till I return back home. I’m still in WashingtonDC, so I thought to enjoy my weekend in New York City. This is my first visit to NYC Times Square. I booked a three hours train from DC To NYC via Amtrak Rail Transportation. Actually, the train cost cheaper and faster ($280) per person.

New York is a wonderful city, but it is so busy compared to WashingtonDC. I disliked the environment in times square, but liked the activities and entertainments. Still I haven’t been to many places, but I have to get back again to NYC in future.

sixsenseszighybaySix Senses Zighy Bay got really popular this year. Last month, I had a chance to stay in Six Senses Zighy Bay resort for short period. I done my reservations through Six Senses reservation department. To reach Zighy Bay, I booked a transportation service from Six Senses, that took me from Dubai Int. Airport. It is a long 2hrs drive from Dubai to Oman border reaching Six Senses Zighy Bay. But that really worth it.

I was welcomed from the reception, checked-in and walked down to my lovely villa. Six Senses Zighy Bay offers different types of villas, but what I booked is a private swimming pool villa with sea view.

The place is really fabulous. As well as their services, I loved the way they help us with our wants. On the second day, I waked up with flu and called them for assistant. They cooperated with me till I felt well.

At the end, I loved this place and I wish I could stay more than three days. I am planning to be there in mid of March next year.
