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.
On the occasion of Kuwait’s 53rd anniversary of independence and the 23rd anniversary of liberation, the National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) launches a special musical song presented as a commemorative gift to Kuwait. Titled “Watani Al Kuwait”, the National Song initiative consists of a series of tableaux that depict the social responsibility carried by Kuwaiti youth volunteers from different organizations.
Great Work NBK!
Since Flappy Bird developer removed the game from both Apple and Play Stores. Apple and Google rejected couple of games with the same concept and similar name. I think it’s fair to take the right action to reject the submitted games. I also believe Flappy Bird opened new opportunity for games developer to start developing new games with interesting ideas that inspires the users.

In the market you can find your needs with different qualities. I was at The Avenues and I passed through Dean and Deluca store to get some of Dean and Deluca’s butter. I founded thyme (Za’ater) placed on the shelve next to the butter, so I placed in the basket to have some for dinner. Well I’m impressed with the Dean and Deluca thyme taste. It is really delicious! If you love thyme for breakfast, I recommend you get one of Dean and Deluca’s thyme.
Moreover, I saw different chips flavors next to the cashier. So I picked up sea salt and sweet chilly flavors. What can I say is their taste it absolutely delicious. I wish I can fill up my kitchen with Dean and Deluca Foods.
