Tons 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.
I received an invitation from The Gathering Bistro Restaurant to attend their private event to taste their new menu. Last Monday, I arrived to The Gathering Bistro Restaurant in Salhiya. The event were organised, decorated and well managed.
New Menu Dishes:
Iced Parmesan Salad
Chicken and Halloumi Salad
Sesame Prawn Toast
Chips ‘n’ Cheese
Melanzane Alla Parmigiana
Greek Yogurt Soup
Chicken and Mozzarella Burger
Roast & Toast
Creamy Cinnamon Pudding
Chocolate Brownie Fudge
The 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.
For 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!.
After 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.

Washington 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 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.
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.
Just 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.

Six 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.
Weeks ago, I was in Dubai for a vacation. I had an amazing experience in Dubai Safari Desert. Around 3pm, one of the safari drivers picked us from our hotel and drove us down to South Dubai towards the desert. I haven’t experience this before, but it was amazing. It is a safe 30 minutes safari ride. I actually enjoyed the ride, but at the end I felt bit dizzy and buzzy. Which is normal, but I sat down for 10 minutes and drinking cold water to get back normal.
Information are all included in Dubai Desert Safari [website].
Apple introduced last week iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. With iPhone 6 is larger and yet dramatically thinner. More powerful, but remarkably power efficient. With a smooth metal surface that seamlessly meets the new Retina HD display. With iPhone 6 all made devices are made with beautiful anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and glass. It’s a thousand tiny details that add up to something big. Or in this case, two big things: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The first thing you notice when you hold iPhone 6 is how great it feels in your hand. The cover glass curves down around the sides to meet the anodized aluminum enclosure in a remarkable, simplified design. There are no distinct edges. No gaps. Just a smooth, seamless bond of metal and glass that feels like one continuous surface.
Every day, people take more photos with iPhone than with any other camera. That’s because the iSight camera makes it so remarkably easy. Now, in addition to its large 1.5-micron pixels and ƒ/2.2 aperture, the world’s most popular camera is packed with new technologies to help everyone take more great photos.
To make it just as easy to shoot amazing video, we added new features like the option to capture 1080p HD at 60 fps, 240-fps slo-mo, and time-lapse video. And you can shoot HD video and then watch the stunning results on the large Retina HD display.
Week ago, I received three new ice-cream flavors from Frost Gelato located at The Avenues – The Mall. The three new flavors are Honey Lavender, Lemon Mint and Lotus. The most flavours I really loved are lemon mint and lotus. As I can taste the nature flavor without any ingredients added in. You can find more about Frost Gelato on Instagram @frostkwt.

Ribs & Rumps opened a year ago in Kuwait. Last week, I received an invitation to taste the new menu of Ribs & Rumps. I ordered mix appetisers, ribs, ribs burger and shrimp pasta. The food was some how tasty, but I don’t feel it is over tasty except the ribs burger. However, the pasta shrimp was also not that delicious, I feel they need to work more on the sauce, condiment and ingredients.
The restaurant atmosphere is expectable and I can say the menu need to be much better. I rate Ribs & Rumps food 06/10.
