Blood Donation…

Posted: September 21, 2011 in Health and Fitness, Kuwait, Random

A couple of weeks back a friend called me up and told me that they need blood, because his father is very sick and currently is in London for treatment… So without even thinking i agreed and i remember it was in Ramadhan so i went to Kuwait’s Blood Bank directly after futoor… Anyways i thought of posting this to encourage everyone in donating blood, you never know you might save someone’s life… I try to go as much as i can, twice a year at least… So let this be a habit and donate if possible, once a year is enough…

When i talked to the person at 360 Mall where this was built and took place he said that all of it is perfumes even from the inside… According to him they have used 51000 perfumes valued in the millions… Thanks to Habchi and Chalhoub for this pyramid… The day after, i saw this approval that we officially made a guinness world record…

Yesterday my friend and i went to Elevation Burger… This is my second time there, you can see my first visit in this previous post… Last time i went i loved the place and this time i loved it even more… Lets start with the smell of the place, on my first visit the smell of the place was very bad because of the oil they use i think and the ventelation wasn’t working properly… This time the place smelled alot better, thank you Elevation Burger for fixing this problem it made our visit alot more comfortable…
Now lets go to my meal, i started with a burger, fries and 7up for the drink… Everything is ordered seperatly so i ordered a whole meal…

I ordered a 5 patty Vertigo burger with lettuce, ketchup, tomato, pickles and 5 slices of cheese, one on every patty…

This is me half way through… 😀

What i like about Elevation Burger is that it is light on the stomach, even after a 5 patty you don’t feel heavy headed, stomach hurting or sleepy (5adraan)… I don’t know it might be the healthy oil (olive oil) they use or is it somethong else… All i can say is that if you still haven’t been to the place you should give it a try… As for me i loved their fries i ordered the regular fries its once-you-pop-you-can’t-stop kind of fries, but i have to say that my friend didn’t like them at all… I guess if everyone had the same taste then we would only have 1 restaurant in Kuwait, now thats a nightmare i don’t want to have… 😛
After we finished our sandwiches my friend wanted to order another Elevation burger (double) since he wasn’t full from his first burger… I felt i needed one more so i ordered another Elevation burger (2 patty) with the same toppings as before…

Yummy yummy – hni 6ar irejeeeem… 😛

After we finished we ordered some cookies since my previous visit they didn’t have them yet…

20110825-013241.jpg

I liked them, they are not the best cookies in the world but they were ok… They are healthy cookies… 😉

This above card is given to you and gets stamped for every patty you order, and when you stamp the whole card which is 7 patties you can enjoy a free single burger…
Again i say the restaurant is defintly one of My best burger places in Kuwait and its worth your taste buds… The only thing i would like to say is that thair menu is small, not alot of choices… An employee their told us that they are going to introduce a Mushroom burger soon and i hope they also introduce a Chicken sandwich as well…
Thank you Elevation Burger and see you soon… 😉

Yesterday i participated in a training session organized by Aymstrong… To know more about the amazing stuff that Aymstrong does and their goals of having better health awareness in Kuwait click here… I registered in this session when i read about it on The Diet Ninja’s blog Trying To Be Fahad… First of all thank you Fahad for posting about this killer session, if it wasn’t for you i wouldn’t have known about it… 

The training session was supervised by Yousef Al-Qanai (founder of Aymstrong) and his team… I thought i was in good shape and could handle the training but i was SOOOO wrong it was tough… The session was divided into Cardio warmup, core training, circuit training and ended with about 10 minutes of yoga… The hardest parts i felt were the core training and the yoga… Check out these pics from Aymstrong’s blog

New Gergean Generation…

Posted: August 17, 2011 in Kuwait

About gergean i was thinking that before in our generation it was much nicer… The candy was nicer the style of gergean was different… Before when we used to go out and collect gergean door to door we would do it walking and wearing dishdashas at least and we would have one of our friends wear 3abaya… 😛 It was alot of fun and we would sing so hard our lungs would pop out…

Nowadays… Lets start with the candy its a bit different than before but thats ok… What makes me sad is when i see them ygarge3ooon… These things i am about to tell you i saw them bman6e8atna… The picture above, gamaw ygarge3oon b7an6ooor gilna may5alef, ba9 mowa9alat 6awfnaha inzain limosine hathi 8awiya… Shilwanasa bilmawthoo3 9ar gez mo gergee3an… Oo il-lebs la asolif 3an il-lebs ilbanat 6ab3an kash5een a5er kash5a oo 6al3een chinhom ray7een mojama3 mo ygarge3oon wain idarareee3 oo ishabab nafs ishay ba3ad…

Gergean All Around…

Posted: August 15, 2011 in Kuwait, Random, Travel

I just wanted to share with you how different countries have different songs in gergean… I think most of these are just shortened versions because even ours in Kuwait there is a bit more to it… If your from a different country please share with us how you celebrate gergee3an… In Kuwait it goes on for 3 nights and sometimes gets stretched to 4, the children will walk around the area (ilman6e8a) and go to each house ring their bell sing the song and get some candy… I heard that some places its a bit different so please share…
