The Warehouse Mall - IKEA coming soon to Ahmadi area!

 Those of you who were sad when they knocked down Ahmadi Drive in Cinema should be happy to hear Kuwait National Cinema Companies have taken over the plot of land and are now building The Warehouse Mall in Ahmadi district, Sabahiya area. From the looks of it there will be an IKEA in the area!! 

Concept picture

Mubasher: Kuwait National Cinema concluded a contracting deal of KWD 39.8 million with First United Co. for the construction of the first phase of a commercial, entertainment, and cultural complex in Kuwait.

The new complex, situated at South Sabahiya, will be spread across a total area of 79,640 square metres, according to a statement to the Kuwaiti bourse on Monday.

Kuwait National Cinema also referred that it will provide further details in this regard during the project execution phases.

As for the material impact, the transaction will contribute to higher fixed assets (projects under implementation) as well as an increase in the company's liabilities during the project implementation period.

From the looks of the picture IKEA will be full size, not like the tiny one in 360 Mall. I've always said there needs to be an IKEA in that area due to the amount of people living there and having to travel to Avenues to shop which is a hassle. I can't wait to see the final product!

Fuwa Fuwa Kuwait - Japanese Desserts

After seeing these awesome looking Japanese desserts on IG I took the kids to test it out. Fuwa Fuwa is located in The Port off exit 208. It's on the left side, the cafe itself is extremely small with only 4 tables and a small area to wait for your items. When were there people were finished but still sitting at the table which wasn't cool so we had to eat in the car and by the time we got there the ice creams were almost liquid. 

Some of the Japanese drinks to choose from

Truly amazing drinks, Nebula and Fuji San
It's a more expensive place that I wouldn't visit often but it was really good! You can find their menu and pricing on their IG

List of places for 'vaccinated' residents in Kuwait

Sadly,  the discrimination towards those that haven't received their vaccines has been began and they will not be allowed into most places even though most have registered months ago. I registered in March and didn't receive anything from the government, my company was able to get vaccinated due to the kindness from KOC towards their subcontractors. We received our first does of Oxford last Thursday, I was wishing for Pfizer but I wasn't about to turn down anything that came my way.

Most people that I know aren't vaccinated, besides the Kuwaitis. It's going to be a long summer and the psychological stress of this will take its toll soon enough.
