I posted last year, NBK Need To Invest More On Mobile Banking & WOL. Last week The National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) launched the new look of Watani Online services. I liked the interface, colours, design, fonts and layout. I logged-in to WOL using the mobile web browser. What I found is the website is not capable to use on your mobile. As we use our smart-phone in a daily base. I recommend to NBK to convert WOL to mobile version website.

KuwaitAirwaysFirstClassKuwait Airways posted previously on Instagram some snapshots of how Kuwait Airways new first and business class looks like. The image above of the First Class looks like. Compared to the other airlines, the first class should be segmented in separated seats and this looks like as business class zone. So I dislike it.

HotelMissoniCucinaI received a special invitation from Hotel Missoni Management to review Cucina Restaurant new pizza menu. Today afternoon, after I done from work, I went to Hotel Missoni to dine-in for lunch and taste their new pizza. The hotel management welcomed us and explained some of the new changes in the restaurant.

Cucina Restaurant is now changed with new theme and decorations. As well the restaurant is expanded now with extra seats and tables. There is also a private lounge were business/private lunch can be reserved. Personally, I liked the new blue theme and Missoni texture added everywhere.

CucinaRestaurantWe were given a set menu for our lunch. As a start-up I had pomegranate mojito drink. I really liked the drink and haven’t had the same mojito in my life. For appetizer, I had Parmigiana di Melanzane (Eggplant Parmigiana with orange infuse tomato) and Tagliolini Verdi Gratinati (Homemade tagliolini with beef bacon, asparagus and parmesan cheese). I haven’t tried the Parmigiana di Melanzane as I’m allergic eggplants. As for Tagliolini Verdi Gratinati is wonderful and also I ate two dishes and can stop of having  more. What I liked with the Tagliolini is the cheese sauce and way it’s cooked. This would be my favorite dish.

CucinaPizzaMoving to the main course. I chose to try Margherita Pizza (Tomato sauce, Mozzarella and Fresh Basil) and Ortolana Pizza (Tomato sauce, Mozzarella and Grilled Vegetables). The pizza made with fresh ingredients came specially from Italy, made specially with thin dough, natural, healthy and tasty.

Ending with the desserts, I had Pizza Dolce (Pizza topped with Cucina special chocolate sauce, crushed hazelnuts and icing sugar). The dessert is also fabulous with great pizza dough, tasty chocolate sauce and well presented. The chocolate sauce taste similar to Nutella, but made specially by Cucina Restaurant.

Overall, I enjoyed the Hotel Missoni atmosphere and had a great time to review one of the best Italian restaurants in Kuwait. I highly recommend you to try their pizza, appetizers and beverages.

I rate Cucina Restaurant Pizza (10/10), Dessert (09/10), Appetizers (08/10), Beverages (10/10) and Restaurant Atmosphere (10/10).

ToreroRestaurantInvitationWe received a wonderful invitation from Torero Spanish Restaurant & Churreria to attend the grand opening of Arabella branch. The invitation is designed as passport and boarding pass, as it looks so creative and unique to me.

ToreroKuwaitHowever, on Wednesday night I arrived around 7.30pm to attend the grand opening. The opening started with a speech, then wonderful Spanish flamenco music and finally a draw to win a flight ticket to Europe.

ToreroFoodDuring the event, we were served some Torero appetizers, main dishes and desserts. I chose to have mushroom soup, goat cheese salad and Paella De Pollo. I don’t have any comments of the food taste. But I dislike the dishes presentation, which need to be more attractive and presented to the customers. I rate Torero Spanish Restaurant & Churreria 06/10.

Today morning was Kuwait Operetta of 2014. If you missed watching the operetta, here is the full video which I founded in YouTube.

I saw this video on YouTube of a £200,000  Lamborghini Aventador caused a three-car crash in London. The black Lamborghini Aventador was caught on camera speeding so fast it briefly became airborne before smashing into a parked car. A passerby caught the 217mph motor flying into view, before clipping a nearby Mazda and lifting off the ground. In a split second the young driver loses control of his exotic vehicle and hits a stationary BMW 3 Series before coming to a halt.

KuwaitInstagramI’m really disappointed of how the “Instagram Stars” think of offering crazy prices to promote/market/advertise on their Instagram account. I sat in a meeting with one of my friend (owner of a restaurant). He was talking about Instagram and how he could build up a successful Instagram account for his restaurant. Through our conversation, he told me their people called Instagram Stars which could help us with building our account.

He also said one of the Instagram Star takes:

700KD per advertisement post

1000KD per post / if the star photo-shoot himself inside the restaurant

Come on. Let’s say the highest star got 400K. Most of the followers are individuals, businesses, comedy accounts, spams and companies. This would equal 40% of the population in Kuwait. Then, if the business owner could promote his restaurant in newspaper (Starting from 500KD per advertisement), then I think it would be a great outcome as each newspaper own more than 1.5 million subscriber.

Startups or companies thinks that promoting on Instagram would increase their sales. Well of course not as a high percentage but it depends on the target audience. But spending 1000KD per post for one Instagram star would create a high expense.

CinescapeFreeEntryCinescape announced to offer free entry forever to all special needs/disabled customers. The free entry covers all Cinescape Kuwait branches. I think it is a great CSR strategy for Cinescape to offer the special needs/disabled customers free entry. Good Job!.
