Orange Theory Fitness

I've been reading about this workout/gym for a few months but they were only located in the city at that time. I waited until they finally opened up in 89 mall in Egaila and checked it out. The 'theory' is that you do an hour class that keeps your body burning for up to 36 additional hours. I joined a gym last July for 3 months but got bored from the cardio. The classes hold up to 24 people only and your place must be reserved online so that will be interesting to see how it works out.

I joined for their special of 60 KD per month as a special offer before they open, it will then be 75 KD monthly and you have to buy a heart rate monitor as well. 

It located in 89 mall in Egaila to the left on the 4th floor I think. You can find more information by visiting their IG @orangetheoryfitnesskw and their website as well.

Arby's in Kuwait

I had to take a trip to Surra today so while I was waiting for the kids to finish studying I went to Jabriya to check on Arby's and to my delight they were open. I was customer number 3, woohoo. I had the regular Arby meal with curly fries and it was good, how I missed that Arby's sauce! 

 This restaurant has 4 tables and take away, there will be other locations opening up in the near future as well.

 This cookie was simply amazing!
 The manager in his Kuwaiti outfit before he left to the states, I think he looks quite handsome
 This was the smoked turkey ranch bacon sandwich?
They are located in Jabriya close to the complex that has IHOP and Starbucks. You can follow them on their IG @arbyskuwait

Al Kout Mall Closed!

As I drove through Fahaheel I was wondering why they parking of Al Kout was empty on a Saturday night, the reason is that the mall is now closed until October 2018. The side with Sultan Center is still open but they have gutted the shops that used to be on the outside of the mall. It's part of the new mall being built now and it looks as if the mall may not be opening this year but sometime next year.

 If you look closely at the shop names there's Biesel instead of Diesel and Valentino with two 'L'

It looks as if all the people who used to visit Al Kout have now relocated to Gate Mall so be warned there are massive traffic jams around that area.

Quick Inspection in Fahaheel by Al Daman

I'm a little late on this discovery but I did see it a few days ago and renewed by vehicle registration yesterday. I was dreading the process in Jabriya, especially in this heat so I was happy to see this place. For women it's extremely easy, you walk in with your CID and registration and someone will take your documents to be processed while you sit in the small waiting are for females. He will come and ask for your number and the cash for the process, if you don't have cash there's an ATM close to the door which is very convenient.

Once the process is completed you will follow the guy to your car and leave out the back, so quick and easy!

I guess the building has been there for a while and it's right beside my car wash place I've been going to for 11 years. I never noticed it before, I guess that's what I get for making a bee line dash to get out of that area.

Archery in Kuwait

Have you ever wanted to be like Robin Hood or just want to do something different? The Kuwait shooting club building now includes archery, which opened around six months ago and hasn't caught on yet but after giving it a try I am hooked and want to try again as soon as I have time.

 My first shot was a bulls eye, it was all downhill after that

It was 10 KD for I think 18 arrows? There are guys there who will teach how to do it but it will take practice!

Don't forget your guns!

Not bad for shooting a gun for the second time in my life. The guns start off at 6 KD depending on the model.

Sadu Weaving Course

Sadu house brings you their awesome Sadu weaving course, I've always wanted to try it but I don't know if my back can take it. You have to sit on the floor in front of the weaving machine. I took a doll making course with my daughters and it was really nice. I love Sadu house!

Life in Kuwait Blog #39 on the list of Top 100 Middle East Blogs

I received an email about my blog being included on the Top 100 Middle East Blogs from Feedspot, I  guess that's cool even though I don't really know how they determine the winners. Thanks Feedspot! You can find the complete list here. The n/a is for Facebook and Twitter, I have a FB page and thought about using Twitter but it's difficult to focus when you have to take pictures for Snap, the blog and Instagram and I have no idea how to use Twitter. I don't think my life is cool enough for all of those platforms.
