Gadgets, gadgets, gadgets…where would men be without their ‘toys’?

For those that are TryingtobeFahad you’ll love this one!


The Adidas miCoach uses heart rate zones to create varied, complete and personalized workouts—it’s essentially a more advanced and personalized Nike+ system. This little fitness gadget also gives you real-time feedback. You can sync miCoach Pacer to adidas.com/micoach to analyze your stats and get coaching feedback online. This is priced at only 70 US Dollars which is great!

 

 

 

 

So, It’s the Nikon D5000 – need I say more?

 

 

 

And this next one, is for all you music lovers! I’m so hyped about this! I can’t describe to you the quality of sound that you get from it! I picked one up in the UK back in summer.

It’s the JVC-RV-NB50 KABOOM! If you love sporting a retro look, then this new iPod/iPhone speaker dock by JVC will really suit your style!

 

Mr Amazon is a genius for creating this next one, when I first saw it on Oprah, I was super excited! It’s Amazon’s EBook Reader, Kindle.

The fantastic thing about this is, when the Kindle first came out, it cost somewhere around 500 dollars, the price has dropped dramatically (which is surprising as it now comes equipped with wifi) to about 300 dollars.

 

 

 

 

It’s the blackberry playbook…nothing like the ipad but hey, give them a break, they are trying…

 

 

So, this year’s gadgets havent been up to much BUT…here’s what we’ve got to look forward to in 2011/2012…

Iphone 5!

3D Sony VAIO

The Verizon iPhone

2011 Nissan LEAF, an ambitious 5 door hatchback car that runs on electricity and purportedly can go 100 miles on a single charge. It will cost around $32,000!

and possibly…another world war..

We really are moving forward…………..scary eh?

Just think, 50years ago, TV’s were black and white.

Loving my new jimmy choo uggs!

10 Nov

Ahhh!! A friend just brought me back some Jimmy Choo Uggs!! They are super comfy and only cost her 200 Euro during her trip to Dublin, she had to pre-order them though! What a fantastic birthday present!

I’m heading back in December to UK and am thinking of getting these starlit ones (see below)…they are so cute, I just don’t know if I’m ”brave” enough to wear them outside… tell me what you think..

Bit much?

I’m just thinking, is there a Jimmy Choo in Avenues? If so, someone let me know which phase! I always make it as far as the food section and then turn around…..I get bored quickly!

Btw, for anyone that doesn’t know…. Jimmy Choo’s are like wearing chocolate on your feet!! They are simply amazing! Jimmy Choo was Carrie’s favorite Boutique in Sex and the City (yes! Now you remember!)

Al Mayas Restaurant Review

9 Nov

Wow! Where on earth do I start?! It’s delicious.
Food 10/10
We ordered the usual, taboula, fattouche, homous, lamb chops, kebab and potato with kuzbar! It was delicious! Lamb chops were cooked to perfection! Location 10/10 -except during rush-hour! We went at 4. It was quiet, not many around. It was nice. It’s located right off Al-Bida Roundabout, down on the beach behind Sheik!
Staff very friendly. Smartly dressed.
Option to sit inside or out!
Great place to go with family as kids can play on beach and within eyeshot!
Al Mayas gets 10/10 from me!
I’m definitely going back there soon!
Total for everything was 18kd and that was drinks included. Reasonable enough!
Sorry, I don’t have pics! Sun was setting and my BB doesn’t have a flash! X

a random thought

8 Nov

Why is the big red, white and blue country spending billions sending troops to afghanistan/pakistan/ (goodness knows where else) when there are children in africa starving to death.
How is it that so much money can be spent on wars and destruction, destruction that is not actually needed. Why not fix something that is actually ‘broken’? Instead, YOU, yes, YOU being the *blank* *blank* are spending millions on crap, basically.
Michael Jackson was right. We need to save this planet, protect it, make it better. How about by starting with the poor? Feed them. Give them clothes and fresh drinking water.
How about troops going on strike? Refusing to join? Why do these guys keep going to fight unnecessary battles? There is no war on terror. Leave these countries alone and maybe they will leave you alone too. What do you think? You reading this, Mr O?

Arabomber on Girls…

2 Nov

Remember a few days ago, I posted the ‘How to be Kuwaitia’ …well…guess what! This guy has FINALLY got a blog AND it’s up and running RIGHT NOW! Yayy!

And ladies…he also did an interview with Desert Blvd..

Here’s what he had to say:

What do you see in your Future Wife? Personality and looks wise

VA: Oh man… here we go with the tough questions lol. It’s like how to be a millionaire the higher you go, the harder it gets.
Ill sum it all up in one step baby.
– A lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets. WOO!
Ok long pause… awkwardness fades slowly.
No, seriously.
Just off the top of my head, of what I see in the perfect wife.
1) Loving & caring to kids (I love kids, if I had a choice the more kids the better.)
2) Open-minded but respects her culture and her roots.
3) Someone who seems to fit in with my family, juuuust right. Like a missing puzzle piece.
4) Not a party girl. Hate them. Miami too many, ble5.
5) Not your typical Kuwaiti girl, I like them casual, none of that dress up EVERYDAY crap. I would love to see one day in Kuwait, a girl that just wear a pair of jeans and a shirt. (Sexiest thing ever in my book) It’s nice to dress up for sure, but everyday… is just pushing it.
6) Doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty, kick it and play some ball.
7) Hate, hate, haaaate make up. Just like you don’t want to be touching a head of hair filled with gel, I don’t want to be wiping off your mask when I touch your face…. I know girls that are absolutely beautiful without makeup, and they just have to ruin it. Once again, don’t mind it once in a while. It’s the everyday that kills it.
8) I hit the gym, I do my part, tend to be pretty active. Would be nice if she kind of put in the effort too. Put in your fair share of squats you know what I’m saying, keep that booty tight LOL. (Ugh.. a lil too much info..) I don’t eat any fast food, pretty strict healthy diet. So yeah.
9) When you say physical trait its tough to say, Cause I honestly don’t have a specific requirement. All I want is someone who looks after herself. How big your cha-chas play no role in being my wife.
(Man… I hope my mom doesn’t read this lol.)
10) The last step and most important one: “Good hearted.” Underline and bold this baby.
Maaaaan this is sooo important. Truly believe that this world is created with two types of people. People who are evil selfish, and just plain evil! And then you have the good-hearted compassionate people, its something I can just tell off the bat, I call it the “vibe” If I get a good vibe from you then we heading the right way. Just Good hearted.
Ok now I’m speaking gibberish.
To sum it all up: Personality:
-Goodhearted.
-Open minded.
-Loving & caring.
-Honesty. Have to be honest with each other.
Physical:
-Takes care of herself
-Not always dressed up, casual wear.
-Make up = Icky

 

So, there you have it……… NO makeup, not always dressed up ( I DITTO THAT (VA) I HATE GIRLS THAT GO SHOPPING IN HEELS!! WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THAT?! FAKE, FAKE, FAKE …and I am a girl ! ) LOL
