Trip to Dubai

This trip to Dubai I spent a day and a half instead of the one day which took two days to recover from. As we were driving I saw a Wendy's advertisement and knew I had to find one. I found one in the mall and ordered my chili and frosty that I've missed so much. I also had Baja Fresh and Taqado Mexican food.


I gave Ski Dubai another try this time and also got to hug a King penguin which was amazing, unfortunately the didn't allow photos, only the ones they would sell to us.
I almost got knocked out in these balls

I had to find a historical attraction as I see malls and restaurants everyday in Kuwait. We stopped by the Dubai Museum which was awesome


Around the corner from the museum is a historical shopping area with a coin museum located in one of what looks like old houses

The only problem was trying to flag down a taxi!

Sultan Chef

After seeing their IG page @sultanchef I always wanted to give it a try. They recently opened up a new location in Abu Halaifa in the "Light Complex," with it being so close I figured why not. We weren't familiar with the menu and I have little experience with Turkish food so we asked the waiter for his recommendation. We started off with drinks, I got the fruit drink pictured below which was really good.

We both tried salads, I got the Roca salad, they came in huge bowls which could've been shared. We also tried the grilled soujouk, a grilled Turkish sausage plate. Unfortunately the sausage plate was so salty I couldn't eat it. 

Our meat recommendation was the rack of lamb carved by our waiter.

 Antep baklava
 Of course we had to try the special Antep baklava and tea. The baklava dish is a show in itself.

The restaurant was beautiful and the waiters were awesome but it is really pricey. Our order which consisted of 2 drinks, bottle of water, 2 salads, one appetizer, rack of lamb and dessert came out to a whopping 52 KD and the food was good but not 52 KD good. All I can say is even though it is pricey there are always a lot of people in the restaurant so business is booming with all of the new locations opening up across Kuwait.

Egypt Air plane crash, Kuwaiti and Saudi on Board

An EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo with 66 people on board crashed today after vanishing from radar – sparking fears of a terror attack.

The Airbus A320 left the French capital's Charles De Gaulle Airport at 9.09pm GMT on Wednesday then went missing three hours and 40 minutes into its journey. Flight MS804 vanished 10 miles into Egyptian airspace around 40 minutes before it was due to land, with reports suggesting the jet crashed near the Greek island of Karpathos.

A captain on board a merchant ship in the Mediterranean reported seeing a 'flame in the sky' while a French security official said a terror attack could not be ruled out.

There were 56 passengers, including two babies and a child, and 10 crew on the flight.
The nationalities included 30 Egyptians, 15 French, one British, one Belgian, one Iraqi, one Kuwaiti, one Saudi Arabian, one Chadian, one Portuguese, one Algerian and one Canadian.

Devastated relatives wept and comforted each other as they gathered at Charles De Gaulle and Cairo Airports waiting for news of their loved ones.

----Terrible news, it hits close to home when there are passengers from the country you're in.

Restaurant complex Closed

It seems the whole complex has closed down now and the restaurants have moved to Gate Mall in Egaila. I've seen Abou Jassem open now in the mall but not the other ones. It's a shame because the complex is really cute.

Perhaps they should tear it down all together and build something else?
