July 28, 2012  |  Gaming, Shout Outs

I’m actually quite swamped with shout outs that I’d love to give out and so I apologize if it’s becoming too much on you guys but hey this might be interesting to you.  Recently I was contacted by the National Gaming Union, who are a group of highly advanced and highly competitve video gamers with their newly organized Ramadan Gaming tournament.

This tournament is quite big to the extent that it is being sponsored by companies such as Wataniya Telecom, Al Rai TV, Fatburger, and so many more.  The event will be held on 3 consecutive Fridays, in the Live Theatre – Discovery Mall, with each day holding a different gaming genre.

The tickets are available at 5KD per game and viewers enter for free.  Tickets are being sold at Discovery Mall in front of Live Theatre and in Al Rehab Complex (Game Center).  Once you start playing you might win a prize which could include mobile phones, gaming consoles, cash and wifi routers.  First prize winners get KD 100 in cash, 1 XBox, Samsung Nexus Mobile and Wataniya Internet Device.  Why not check it out?

[Events] Zafran’s Ramadan Iftar Buffet

July 28, 2012  |  Events, Food

Earlier this week I was invited to try out Zafran’s Iftar Buffet.  Zafran is a contemporary Indian restaurant which is located in Centerpoint – Salem Al Mubarak Street (across the street from Al Fanar Mall).

I arrived there with Lujain (as usual) at 6:45 and the Maghreb prayers had just sounded.  The place was beautifully decorated and spacious enough.  We quickly chose a table and proceeded to the buffet area to pick from the mixture of mostly Indian foods and some lebanese items such as Hummos, Tabbouleh, etc.

I am not a huge fan of spicy food so I tried my best to steer away from those and Lujain as well.  But it was kind of difficult as everything is mildly spicy.

July 27, 2012  |  Shout Outs

A few days back young Sarah H. Al Thekair contacted me to educate me about her non-profit organization which is called “Al Zebeel”.


The concept of this project is that you buy “Zebeel” for Gergain and all the proceeds that are collected will go to charity, the Kuwaiti orphanage to be specific. It is available in more than one size.

Sarah H. Al Thekair is a 17 year old girl who is love with our culture and traditions.  She has come up with this brilliant idea to make gergain more exciting and cool.  So why not support her with her endeavors?

Be sure to contact her on the following channels.

[Shout Outs] Bed Shop Ramadan Campaign

July 27, 2012  |  Shout Outs

You should always change your mattress once every few years, because some mattresses either become lumps and lose their shape or you need something more comfortable to sleep on.  “The Bed Shop” is the shop you need to get to as they are having a cool campaign for Ramadan.

They are offering their customers an additional 5% discount when they donate their old mattresses/beds for the needy through them.  In addition, a certificate will be issued from the Charity Organization to the customer, confirming the donation.  So you don’t need to worry whether this is just a publicity stunt or not.  So what are you waiting for? Purchase a new mattress and donate the old one to the less fortunate.

Offer is valid from July 25 – September 1 2012.

Follow The Bed Shop for more information:

[Apple] Installing Mountain Lion via USB

July 26, 2012  |  Apple

UPDATE: A friend of mine on twitter @Nalmulaifi linked me to a much simpler way to create a Mountain Lion USB Thumb Drive which unfortunately didn’t work well with me, but it might work better with you.  So give it a try. [Link]

It literally took me more than 6 hours to download it on my crazy slow connection but at least it’s downloaded.  Anyways I’m here to tell you about the method to create your own OS X Mountain Lion USB drive.

Before installing Mountain Lion just make sure that you backup your machine with the “Time Machine” that way you can guarantee it doesn’t mess anything up and if it does you will have a backup to resort to.  I have created a Lion Installation Drive and am currently creating a few Mountain Lion ones, so this method is tested and works great. Anyways let’s go onto the process.

What You’ll Need:

  • Downloaded Copy of Mountain Lion (Do not install it yet just download and keep it there)
  • USB Drive (at least 8GB)

[Apple] Martin Scorsese’s Day with Siri

July 25, 2012  |  Apple, Link Surfing

Apple continues to surprise me every single minute and with their new celebrity chain of ads featuring celebrities such as: Samuel Jackson, Zoey Deschanel, and now Martin Scorsese joins the crowd.

In this new ad we see Martin in the back of a taxi cab going downtown in NYC and asking Siri about his day.  I simply cracked up at different parts of it and fell in love with him more.  Apple continues to bring us the amazing ads especially after their popular “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” chain of ads.  I miss those wish they can come back again!
