The smell of the cake was so sweet and sugary, I couldn’t wait to put aside my camera and grab a knife instead. I cut the part that represent the island of Boubyan to try, take a look at what lies beneath the sugar coating.

Its chocolate and red velvet cake layers surrounded with smooth cream and the entire thing is encased in the almondy sugar layer with the colors. So delicious! Thank you The Chocolate Bar for sending this delicious cake my way!

The cake is now available to order for the National and Liberation days celebrations. To place an order or for more information you can contact The Chocolate Bar by calling 22263396 or following them on Twitter (@TheChocoBar) or Instagram (@TheChocoBar).

To celebrate the upcoming National and Liberation days on 25 and 26 February consecutively, The Diet Centre sent me a very nice package. Diet-friendly desserts on a silver tray with two books talking about the History of Kuwait.

I don’t know which made me happier, the strawberry tart or the two books! The books most likely, and they are so suitable for the upcoming occasion!

Table Tennis Kuwait Open

The video above of the impressive shot that took place during the recent ITTF Kuwait Open has been making its rounds around the internet today. What I find more impressive is how an important event like the ITTF Kuwait Open took place in Kuwait and very little knew about it. Based on the news stories on the ITTF website, it looks like it was an important event yet I don’t recall seeing any advertising for it. Not a lot of activities like this take place in Kuwait so I’m sure a lot of people would have been interested to watch it. [YouTube]

The Select Photography Book

tspb-002

I like it when new interesting books are released into the world. I like it even more if I can get my hands on a copy as soon as I know if its release. The “Select” book is a big black album-like book with dazzling photographs printed on its glossy pages. The photographs are all taken by talented photographers from Kuwait in different photography categories: landscape, food, portrait, fashion, street, and more.

I loved the book. I enjoyed flipping through its pages while sipping a big fat cup of Arabian coffee yesterday evening. With each flip of a page, my eyes would fall on yet another stunning shot and I’d be lost in the beauty of its details. I hope one day I’d be able to take impressive shots like these.

tspb-001

The Select photography book will make a great addition to my collection of coffee table books. If you are interested in photography and want to check how the talents in Kuwait view the world around them, then this book is defienetly for you. Thank you Select book team for sending me the book, I love it when I return home to find a book, and a gorgeous one, waiting for me.

Kuwait: the Authorities Bans a Video Editor from Editing Videos

Cairo February 17, 2013

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI), denounces the authorities of forcing the video editor known on twitter as “ 7MGAN the lover of the Oppressed people” from editing any other videos.

The stateless activist known as “7MGAN@” on twitter, as he mentioned that he was banned from editing any new videos to support the case of the stateless in Kuwait after the authorities practiced pressure on him that amounted the assault, beat, custody and practiced pressure on his father in order to stop his activity and force him to sign the declaration of not designing a video again.

The activist added that he changed his youtube channel password without looking, so he can’t reach it again.

ANHRI said that “the forcing of the stateless activist by the authorities to leave his activity in editing the videos that support the demands of the stateless, is a serious violation to his personal right to express his opinion via Internet. Such violation should be added to the violations that are committed by the authorities against the stateless activists and bloggers and against the Kuwaiti bloggers and activists as the authorities harass more than 200 activists and bloggers due to using the social networks to express their opinions”.

ANHRI demanded from the authorities to respect the freedom of expression and not to harass the activists and bloggers on the background of their peaceful activity to call for political and social reforms in Kuwait.

ANHRI demand from the authorities to reveal the entity that forced the blogger to stop his editing videos and bring him to the investigation authorities.

Now ship from the UAE with Aramex

Although I’ve stopped using Aramex for their increased prices and long delays, i’ve found out from our friend @How2Q8 that Aramex are providing  a UAE address.

 

Called up Aramex and it turns out that the cost is exactly what they charge from shipping from the US and UK (somehow i feel they are ripping us off – might be the distance from Kuwait to UAE?!).

 

They charge you 3.5 KD for the first 1/2 Kilogram, then 2.75 KD for every additional KG.
