511 Tactical Kuwait Location

My new job requires the employees to wear tactical pants and I don't know my size to order online so we took a trip to 511 Tactical store in Al Rai. The store is loaded with all kinds of clothing, shoes, a fake horse and some buggies.

Of course the prices are high as it always seems like they take the US dollar amount and put into KD of the same amount which in reality is 3 times as much. But if your looking for some tactical wear and can't order online then take a trip to Al Rai, you can find more on their IG @5.11kuwait_tactical

Real estate and restaurants--the bubble has Burst

KUWAIT CITY, March 11: The managements of some commercial complexes have received letters from a number of agencies of well-known brands about their intention to leave the sites they rented by the end of March, reports Al-Rai daily quoting informed sources.

They explained that these letters came from agencies in the textile, accessories, perfumes and restaurant sectors. The sites that will be vacant are huge. In some complexes, the rented sites that will be vacant are of size 1,000 square meters.

This will in turn negatively affect the real estate sector this year. The sources indicated that the managements of those complexes have already started promoting the sites that will be vacant soon, stressing that re-renting these sites will not be easy due to the current troubling conditions facing the real estate sector.

Meanwhile, Secretary of Real Estate Union Qais Al-Ghanem said a number of companies recently reduced the number of their branches and their employees due to fall in rate of consumerism in the society. He indicated that these companies rent strategic sites that are capable of ensuring profits, and also depend on earnings from strong branches to compensate for the loss of weak branches. Al-Ghanem stressed that market conditions have changed recently and companies are re-evaluating their presence in different areas. He revealed that many of them decided to close down branches that are not making profits.

Qatar Trip- Boat Trip

Besides Souq Waqif and Sealine we also too a boat trip around the area and to The Pearl. The water was clean and blue, the expats sailing on their boats would wave and smile as they passed, what a lovely place to be. 
 These are the homes on an island for the Emir of Qatar and his three wives, one for each which means there's still an opening for one more, I'm available Sheikh Tamim!
 Entrance to The Pearl
 The boat for Sheikha Moza

 This area is only for diving
 Some of the ridiculous houses on their own island

I would definitely recommend taking a boat trip around Doha, it's amazing!

Al Aysh Camping Supplies- Egaila

When it was cooler I wanted to get some gear to set up a 'kashta' (small camping area) in the desert but didn't know where to buy supplies. A friend of mine told me about Al Aysh for camping stuff in Qurain behinf LuLu Hypermarket. I found the store really cool and loaded with everything you would need for the desert, falcons, hunting and fishing.
I bought this kit which is filled with everything you need for your 'kashta'
 I got a rug and one of these as well

 If you need Arabic coffees or some tea there's a store that will grind it up with spices there as well

I love the place as it's filled with all kinds of stuff and the guys there are really helpful too, I only wish they had some falcons hanging out there.You can find more information on their IG which also has their google maps location which makes it a lot easier than driving all over trying to find it like I did.
