UpperCrustPizzaCompetitionI received an email from Upper Crust inviting us for best pizza competition. Last Saturday, I went to Upper Crust – AlBida’a branch to participate. The judges Basma Sultan, Ansam518, Lana AlResheed and Chef Hanouf have to review and rate each pizza to announce the top 3 winners.

Before cooking the pizza, the restaurant chef gave a short cooking tutorial. Q8Path went the first. I got the pizza dough ready, added some red sauce, grilled chicken, mushroom, vegetables and cheese. The chef took the pizza to the oven. After 7 minutes, I handed the pizza for review by the judges. I called my pizza “Chicken Veg. Margarita Pizza”. 

Well, what a shame I haven’t won the competition. But it was a great challenge and fun activity to cook up my mind pizza.

PizzeriaAmamiI recieved an invitation from Pizzeria Amami Restaurant to review their food. Pizzeria Amami started with a small branch behind Olympia Mall and currently they moved to there new branch at Symphony Mall. I arrived around 3pm and the restaurant was empty. The restaurant manager welcomed us, explained more about the restaurant and shared their menu.

I chose for lunch Potato Mozzarella Cheese, Margarita Pizza and  Nutella Pizza. Potato Mozzarella Cheese appetizer tasted good, but I disliked the way it presented, which I prefer to work more on the dish decoration. The Margarita and Nutella Pizza tasted great. I also liked the pizza dough.

Their food tasted great. But their prices is bit expensive compared to other Pizza Restaurants. An ordinary pizza cost around 5KD and pasta 6KD. Additionally, Symphony Mall is a dead area and so quite which leeds their restaurant to be empty. Finally, I rate Pizza Restaurants food 08/10, location 05/10 and services 07/10.

AramexKuwaitTwo weeks before I bought two new Mac Pro’s and some accessories from Apple Online Store. Today, I received SMS from Aramex to deliver the items to my home address. I received half of the items and waiting for the rest.

ShopandShipI usually prefer to use Aramex Shop & Ship services. I discovered today that Shop & Ship website is redesigned with new additional services. I can track my order, pay the shipment fees, check the delivery summary and claim for any questions to Aramex customer service. Additionally, I installed their application from the appstore to track out my orders. I congratulate Aramex Shop & Ship of extending their technology services.

With Wataniya Online Store you can purchase their special offers, phones, tablets and internet services. Payments can be done straight away using KNET, Visa or Master Cards.

All orders will be delivered to the shipping address of the customer. I think this is a great value from Wataniya to provide quick online services [website].

DubaiPalmJumeriahI was in Dubai last two days for some personal work. This time I stayed in Fairmont Palm Jumeirah Hotel located on the world’s largest man-made island shaped in the form of a palm tree. I arrived on Monday noon and went directly to complete my work. Around 4pm I arrived to Fairmont Hotel, stayed all night and Tuesday in the hotel. I enjoyed the beach, swimming pool, spa and other facilities. Fairmont Hotel got luxury rooms. I booked my room with the beach and garden view. I don’t have any comments regarding the hotel hospitality, as all their services and facilities are managed professionally. 

UrbanCafeUrban Cafe is a chic home-style café located in the business district of Kuwait. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city, they offer “sophisticated casual” dining to hungry guests, bringing the comfort of home cooked meals to the urban sophistication of the city. They offer coffee or tea, a light meal, or even a three-course meal. As well the display counter for ready-to-go items like sandwiches and freshly baked sweet and savory goods.

Last Tuesday, I attended the grand opening of Urban Cafe. Their was a set menu to choose from. I chose to have for dinner beetroot salad, lime chicken sandwich and bread pudding with Nutella. The food was tasty and perfect. The cafe atmosphere is perfect, but I disliked the tables setup. Overall, I rate the cafe 07/10.

Red5Q4Through my last trip to London. I visited London Selfridges store, I had a look almost to every department. So I walked in the technology and gadgets department located in the basement level. I saw this amazing gadget “Q4 Nano Quadcopter” manufactered by Red 5 Company.  The lightweight Quadcopter is so adorably tiny, its weighs a mere 11.5grams and only just measures 5cm x 5cm. Under the protective one piece PCB frame is the power house of this mean machine. With four channel, six axis flight and a built in gyro, the Q4 Quadcopter provides a stable flight, and is an ideal Quadcopter for people who want to move on to flying more challenging four channel copters.

Actually, it looks like the DJI Phantom but in a mini size. I got inspired and purchased one for £40. I haven’t got any issues with the Q4 Nano Quadcopter. 

Included in the box with the mini Q4 Quadcopter are four spare rotor blades, preparing you for any small accidents, a USB charging cable and of course, an equally small remote.

I thought the restaurant is located at one of the restaurants in the ground floor. But the security guided to me to the restaurant located next to the swimming pool and beachfront area. They server lunch and dinner only starting from 12pm till 12am.
