One of the biggest social media deals happened yesterday. Facebook bought the popular social media application WhatsApp for $19 billion. In addition, Facebook would pay $4 billion in cash and $15 billion as a part of Facebook shares. WhatsApp founders and their employees will get $3 billion of the shares as restricted stock that will vest for four years.
Currently WhatsApp got more than 450 million users. As a long-term potential Facebook will invest to WhatsApp by adding additional messaging services to increase the value of the app.
Starting from today you can see every part of Kuwait decorated and branded with black, green, white and red. Chocolate Heaven is a Belgian chocolates store located in Kuwait City. I got a lovely salted caramel chocolates from them branded with Kuwait’s colours and flag. Find more on Instagram @chocolate_haven.
Regus is one of the largest serviced office accommodation business centre. They own 1411 business centers across 99 countries. In 2013. Regus opened their first business centre in Kuwait City Shayma Tower. I saw their advertisements on newspapers last year about their new office accommodation business centre services. The advertisement attracted me to visit the centre and know more about Regus services. Truthfully, the business centre is fabulous with all facilities, atmosphere and resources. So I signed up with Regus for one year contract for a responsible size office.
Through the year I got another offer from them to move to a better office that matches my requirements. Last year I haven’t got any issues with them. But since beginning of this year they came really different in:
Finance & rent:
- They add up some services costs even when I haven’t used any of them.
- They raise up next month invoice before the month even started and any delays of paying the invoice you will be charged automatically for a lateness fees.
- Whenever you claim for any item, they say “we cannot modify it is from the system”.
Services & Hospitality:
- Their services changed a lot specially with dealing with customers relations.
- They close your office whenever you don’t pay on time and you need to hang over outside.
- They even don’t notify the customer to know what services he used in the centre.
- I complained a lot about the AC and cleaning services but they even don’t care.
- For every request they have to take an approval from somewhere and get back to me within days later.
- You are sticked with the contract and that’s fine as a legal purpose. But there are items are not included regarding the service costs and hospitality services.
Finally, the location and atmosphere is fine. But these are the issues as customer I faced this year. As a startup business, I need a place to host me with a great service and hospitality, as well with a reasonable cost. I chose Regus because it’s a place that matches my business as a location, cost and atmosphere. What I actually see is their vision to earn money rather than taking care of customers relations.
Thanks god of having one of the best healthy cafes. Since last month, I’m getting addicted to Pick Yo frozen yogurt. They provide the best ingredients and toppings to be picked by you and added to your choice from our wide range of naturally flavored yogurt. Probably, the most thing I really love is the natural taste of their food. I wish if they could start-up building more branches around Kuwait to enjoy the best healthy food. As well, their prices are not that expensive compared to Starbucks, Costa Coffee and Caribou.
Kuwait occupies ranked as 152 country in ease of start-up companies in 2013. Currently, different startups are moving on with creative projects and concepts in Kuwait. To get a basic commercial licenses it takes more than 2 months. Personally, I did experienced the headache of getting a basic commercial license. You need to pass through more than 10 ministries in different locations to print out some references and documents. For a simple mistake in the name or number your documents should be all repeated again. Actually, I don’t think Kuwait is the best place to grow your business for startups.
Happy Birthday To Me! Today is my birthday. I celebrated my birthday at home last Saturday. It was an amazing day gathering with family and friends at home with outdoor BBQ service from Altrolevel Restaurant. The surprise is a lovely hand made cake and kids pop candy from Lazurd. Happiness and love is the key of life.
