Euro 2012: Italy makes it to the Quarter-Finals

June 19, 2012  |  Sports

Being an Italy fan for the past I don’t know how many years I was ecstatic to know today that they have won their last game against Ireland and have indeed qualified along with Spain to proceed to the quarter finals! This is seriously music to my ears especially since they started off on a weak start by evening the score in both games.

But they have come back and brought us a win! And what better way is there to celebrate this win than by sharing some hots pictures! :P

[Tech Sun] The One With NFC, Walking Chargers, etc.

June 17, 2012  |  Tech Sun

This week’s Al Watan Daily Technology page happened to feature a number of interesting stories.  Can you seriously feel how excited I am every week to give you a glimpse into the inner workings of “Technology!” Well I am insanely happy with this weeks page.

(Right-Click to Enlarge)

This week the featured stories happened to include the NFC (Near Field Communications) Technology that we see rising in the latest handsets and how phones will now learn more things with the ability of touching.  Samsung has launched a set of “TecTiles” which basically allows you to tag let’s say your night stand and the moment you place your phone on that spot it will launch the “Alarm App” and you can set your alarm.  Isn’t that cool?!

[Project X] The Winners

June 17, 2012  |  Events, Food

The Final Round of #ProjectX_KWT took place on Saturday Afternoon at Chef Boutique and boy was it fun! After a grueling round of cooking the winners were crowned at the end of the event at around 9:00 p.m. and everyone was able to relax and put it behind them! You are probably wondering as to who the winners were? I know I know, I have to get on with it but no, I think I will let you see for yourself who were the “Final 3″.

The Winners of Project X KWT!

(P.S. I just spent the last hour coming up with this concept, the images are stock images I purchased online)

So now that you’ve seen the image, the winners were The El Derwaza Team consisting of Fahad and Amer, with the runner ups of Triple F & UrbanQ8 Team, and in third place The Triple Sisters. What exactly happened during the competition I wasn’t exactly sure as I arrived near the end of the competition where the teams were presenting their dishes to the judges and the judges were giving them their comments.

Apparently throughout the competition EVERY SINGLE TEAM did not put any “SALT” in their dishes or rather it wasn’t the amount the judges were looking for. (Is it our fault we want to give you a good healthy bland meal! :P) But needless to say, it was indeed a very fun competition and as you all know I deliberately lost in order to give my friends a chance to win :P (Yeah right! LOL!)

To find out more about what happened be sure to check the participants blogs later on this week [Triple Sisters], [Triple F], [UrbanQ8], [ElDerwaza], [Moody'N'Cheeky], [FroyoNation], and [The Side Talk].  Not only that but I bet my buddies [7ajiDude] and [PinkGirlQ8] will probably have some behind the scenes coverage!

Thanks to Chef Boutique, Ahmed Al Hendi, Basma from 13 Cups, Victor & Olga, all the Judges especially the awesome Diet Ninja, the Filming Team and of course the awesome helpers including Owlolive, you guys were awesome thanks for this insane competition!

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

June 15, 2012  |  Movies

On Thursday I took my cousins Toons and Issous along with Lujain out to see the newly released third installment of the Madagascar movie series entitled “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” and needless to say [damn I need to find me some new words] I enjoyed this movie greatly.

If you haven’t been following the series in the first part the Central Park Zoo animals Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, and Gloria the hippo found their way to Africa when Marty decides that the Zoo life was boring.  In the second part you see them try to live in Africa and try to find their way back home.  With the new part you see their adventures going all the way into Europe still trying to find their way back.

Due to the evil penguins and smart ass monkeys gambling antics in Monte Carlo they became Europe’s Most Wanted when they crashed a Casino there and had to get on the run because Capitan DuBois (Head of Animal Control and a weird woman who collects animal heads) has her eyes on Alex because she wants to complete her collection of stuffed real animals! Anyways so they join the circus and all hell ensues!

This installment is my favorite of all installments the cartoon was a joy for adults (I’d like to think of myself as one) along with the children.  We were laughing throughout the movie and well if you heard the “Circus Afro” song it will be stuck on rewind in your head which is what’s happening to me.  The graphics were beyond amazing and well everything was great. Don’t believe me then check out the trailer!

One bad thing about it though is that this cartoon was censored in Kuwait.  It’s a shame really I think they were referencing the “Cirque de Soleil” shows and mentioned that one of the shows was shot in the nude and that was cut out.  I mean seriously! Other than that I would highly recommend you to watch it!
