Free goldfish from Shrimpy?

I saw this over a month ago in the papers and thought it was one of the stupidest kids meal giveaways ever! It's like giving away pet chicks at KFC or cows at steakhouses! Ridiculous!

VIDEO: Marina Mall Kuwait Breaks World Record

I was at Marina Mall about 2 weeks ago and spotted thousands of balloons (70,275 to be exact) all over the place. Apparently they had just broken a Guinness World Record for the Longest Balloon Chain in the World.

Captured the entire length of the balloons on video. It was about a 9 minute walk around the mall to cover all the balloons. Video above is shot at 2 times the speed. Enjoy!

*Had issues with the audio track, so I needed to substitute it with some BS track from Youtube... copyright sucks!

Patriotic Bread

This February is a big one for Kuwait. They're celebrating 50 years of independence and 20 years of liberation (from Iraq in 1991). The entire country is decorated in flags, pictures of the Amir, lights, neon signs, projectors, LED screens, building signs and even bread branding!

Left Overs 2010

Whatsup 2011?! So I haven't been blogging at all this year... no surprise my excuse is that I've been swamped with work, but I haven't been completely useless and I've still managed to find stuff to snap pictures of in my absence to make my comeback.

I now leave you with "Left Overs 2010" - a collection of stuff I ate that didn't make the blog last year... Enjoy :P

This is a "Surf & Turf" burger from Applebees, looks way better than it tastes.

Ferrero Rocher cake I had at Taste of Kuwait 2010. It was great, I just don't recall which restaurant it was from.

Part of Friday's "Premium Burger" promotion, the first burger above was their Mushroom & Swiss burger while the second one is their Bruscheta burger. The burgers were ok, but the fried portobello mushroom wedges were out of this world!

Awesome sushi from Wasabi at the Avenues. That's Salmon Sashimi, Crunchy Crab and two other rolls I'm not sure of lol

McDonald's Grand Chicken burger... it was pretty huge. Tasted alright too.

I had first tried Fondue Melt Away back at the Taste of Kuwait and it was amazing. Going to the actual place and trying out the rest of their menu was just as good.

Really good seafood platter from Al Noukhaza at the Crowne Plaza.

Subway's new Flat Bread sub... can't really comment since there's the possibility I could get sued :P (Subway Kuwait is owned/operated by the same guys from Benihana)
