Earlier this evening I was invited by the good people behind SOCIETY BY SUPREME (@societykwt) and Ghaliah Technology (@ghaliahtech) to try out their newly launched restaurant in Levels Complex in Mahboula. Little did I know that I would fall in love all over again and find a new must visit restaurant.
To start off, the restaurant is a European Bistro type brought to you by the same people of “Cafe Supreme”. The atmosphere was amazing, at the moment there seems to be an abundance of British memorabilia but soon there will be Italian, French, and other European elements to be added. It just feels like a nice literary salon type.
The day I met Steve Wozniak (@stevewoz) was a very very special day! Thanks to an invitation by Zain Telecom, I was invited on November 18th to attend a private conference for Zain Staff & Bloggers presented by Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple Computers. In this conference we were given another glimpse into the beginnings of Apple and how they started a small business in a garage and it grew to be one of the most successful businesses in this day and age.
Funny thing though, I was in New York 2 days before the conference and heading back home (the only reason I’ve cut both of my trips to New York short this year was because of the Zain Events really hehe :P) and on my way back I was flying Kuwait Airways. The moment I stepped on the plane, who do I see right there sitting in First Class, the very first seat?
Steve Wozniak himself!
I was star-struck to say the least and wanted to say Hello, I’m a huge fan but felt a bit shy especially since it’s going to be a long flight and I felt I would be disturbing him and interrupting his personal time. Hence, I just stayed quiet, found my seat and spent the rest of the flight wondering if I should go up there and say hello, when I finally decided I would I thought I’d see him when we landed at the baggage check-in but something happened and he was whisked away quickly before I got a chance to see him really. But it was one hell of an experience.
Last weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time, @GulfRun held it’s annual 24 hour Karting Endurance Race at the newly opened Sirrb Circuit (@Sirbbcircuit). It began Friday December 6th afternoon at 4pm and ended the following day at 4:30pm.
To say it was fun is an understatement simply because the newly opened race track and organization this year surpassed my expectations and truly gave you a sense that you were not in Kuwait. The track had visible areas for the spectators to sit and watch whether they wanted an aerial view of the race or one on the ground and being a friend of the Gulf Run team I was able to enjoy the special accommodations made for us in a VIP area available above the track with the amazing DJ, DJ B who brought back old school Hip Hop & Rap, as well as a special viewing area in the Pit.
During the last week of November I was invited by Fantasy World along with my little sister Lujain to check out their latest exciting and challenging competition of its latest remote control robotics, the Combat Creatures. The event took place in the Avenues, Mezzanine floor right in front of the bookstore “That Al Salasil” where a beautiful set up was available for the two days of the competition November 28 – 29th.
The battle was raging over a period of two days and was open to kids of the age 6 and onwards, the participants were able to put their strategy, skills, and hand-eye coordination to the test in order to win one of the many prizes. If you are wondering what the Combat Creatures were? Well wonder no more. I’m here to crack down on everything and anything!
What a way to end my last day as a twenty-something, I was invited by Habchi & Chalhoub to attend a special event in which the stylist AlAnoud Badr (@Fozaza) presented the MICHAEL Michael Kors Holiday 2013 collection at their Avenues Store.
We were given a glimpse into what’s new and what’s hot and Ms. AlAnoud showed us her stylistic magic touch by presenting different looks using the Michael Kors Collection.
Last Wednesday, November 20th I was invited by the kind people of Event Mania & Local Flavor to attend the premiere preview show of Pilobolus’s Shadowland. This award winning show presented by an American Modern Dance Company has made Kuwait its first stop in their Middle East tour.
Going into the show, which was located in the Ice Skating Rink (could we just stop using the Ice Skating Rink as a venue for everything.. It’s cold even if they melt some of the ice and it just isn’t insanely comfortable). The invite mentioned we would be attending a Premiere show, which I thought meant seeing the entire deal but unfortunately we were just given glimpses into the show by witnessing four small acts.
I was invited late last month to attend the Rolls-Royce Wraith launch event, unfortunately I wasn’t able to do but I have received some beautiful pictures of the car itself. It looks to be a powerful beast and Ali Al-Ghanim & Sons Automotive celebrated its 10 years of representing Rolls-Royce by hosting this launch. I will share with you all a bit of the press release, and if you wanted to learn more then you can visit the Ali Al-Ghanim & Son’s showroom in Shuwaikh.
