WH Smith – Kuwait Airport

WHSK1

This was a very pleasant surprise, That Al Salasil has opened WH Smith at Kuwait Airport. It is a lot better then the previous magazine store they had there which was a bit depressing. They had a decent selection of English books, some Arabic and a respectable amount of magazines overall.

I’m looking forward to more books being brought into Kuwait, even though a lot of bookstores have shutdown over the years there is still large amount of people that like buying books. Lets hope that this business venture with WH Smith turns out to be a successful one, I’m happy to see a store like this finally open in the airport.

Bulgari Hotel London

BulgariHotel01

I remember hearing about the Bulgari Hotel in Milan Italy when it first opened, nobody thought a Jewelry chain would open its own hotel, it never made sense, but now everyone is opening their own hotel. I was going to London for 48 hours and decided to try a new hotel and this hotel was an interesting one to see. London has a lot of choices, but I called American Express Platinum services to see if they had any deals on hotels on a short notice, and they did for about 40% off the normal price for a junior suite and when I got there I got upgraded to a higher level suite when I checked into the Bulgari Hotel. There are lots of hotels in London and so many boutique hotels but this was worth checking out.

BulgariHotel02

Basically I got a very large suite for the price of a room in London which rarely happens, but they said during Ramadan it is very quiet in London and that was what you could see out on the streets. I saw a few Saudi & Qatari Supercars parked on some of the more famous roads in London, and they never moved, I asked the doorman what was going on they said that they paid for the parking for up to two months so they won’t lose the spot and its cheaper then shipping the car back home, it seems some people love their spots.

BulgariHotel03

The hotel has this sleek modern feel to it, very stylish with a lot of interesting amenities. I was told they have a beautiful pool but I didn’t have a chance to check it out. The hotel is located in Knightsbridge, and most women would know this area because its where most of their shopping takes place. Personally I’m not too keen on the area because there is a lot of traffic at that location.

BulgariHotel04

Going into the room it felt like an apartment, not a room, a large living room with two types closets, a small dining table and beautiful bathroom. The first night of my arrival I had a late night burger because I didn’t have a chance to eat while I was out and I wasn’t too impressed with it, I expected room service to be a lot better, but the staff were fantastic. Very helpful and always going the extra mile to get anything I requested done.

BulgariHotel05

The room was quite different then what I expected in London, even for a suite it was huge, and it was very spacious. They hid all the power plugs in drawers and the wifi was strong all over the room which was great. And the bathroom was the best part of the room, it was huge and the shower had amazing pressure, even the size of the shower was fantastic.

BulgariHotel06

This hotel was a surprise for me, I wasn’t expecting the the rooms to be like that, and the lobby is always buzzing with people. It is one of those funky hotels you have to try at least once, I don’t think I will stay there again. One thing that is a problem for me is the high price of the rooms, I got a deal this time around but on normal days this would have been a very expensive 48 hours. I would prefer trying another one of the amazing hotels in London but this is an amazing hotel, and one I don’t mind repeating.

Ubiquitous – The Most Masculine Office I Have Seen

Ubiquitous1

I always like seeing these crazy offices and its usually the tech companies that have them, but this time it comes from Ubiquitous, a communication company, I think marketing and branding. They have made the most masculine office I have ever seen, it looks like an old gentlemen’s club where people should be smoking cigars and drinking whiskey, not people working on computers. It’s rare to see an office using black walls and dark wood, but this place got it right, I wouldn’t mind working in an office like that.

Ariel Atom 3.5

Every man should drive or at least ride in this car in his life time. There is just a an insane thrill when it accelerates and it is a bundle of fun on the road. The Ariel Atom is known for being a very fun car to drive, and now with these improvements they have just modernized it a bit and given the engine a nice bump.

This crazy-fast ride still has the 2.0L 245 hp engine found in the Atom 3 but there’s now a supercharged variant with 310hp. It has projector headlamps, LED signals, a stiffer chassis and improved suspension. I especially like the modified lights, it looks clean, and I bet its a ton of fun on the road.

Isle Of Man & Guy Martin

How to out run a helicopter on a GSXR 1000 Superbike by Guy Martin

Guy Martin is one of those guys that has no fear, literally, to speed the way he does down those small roads in Isle of Man is insane. For those who don’t know Isle of Man is the only location in the world other then Germany that has no speed limits and every year there is a race called The Isle Of Man TT, these guys are just on another level. I would love to drive there once just to get the feeling but I think I would be over taken probably a good 100 times because I would be riding slow.

Review: The Three Musketeers

The hot-headed young D’Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.

The Original movie from the 90s is one that I loved and so this one movie I was looking forward to. My favorite character out of the bunch was Porthos since he is all about brute force, the bald guy in the pictures. The Musketeers serve the King of France yet the Cardinal serving the King of France is plotting against them all so it gets interesting. And the storyline this time around is a lot more fun with Disney/Pirates Of The Caribbean feel to it, its a lot of fun and a great end that I wasn’t expecting. From what I can tell their is going to be a sequel and its something I will be looking forward to.

Ariel Atom 3 Wimmer RS

The Ariel Atom 3 is already an insane vehicle on the road, its more like a go-kart on steroids able to take any turn at high speeds, and fly in any direction. You must have the skill to control the car since its extremely light and very powerful. Wimmer RS took this machine one step further by tuning it and replacing a few parts to take it from 300 hp to 340 hp.

This machine can do wonders on the track, and now its even faster then before. Not to say that it wasn’t fast in the first place but this is just an insane amount of power. With the little boost it can do 0-62 mph (100kmh) in a shockingly fast 2.8 seconds.

Review: Attack The Block

From the producers of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Attack the Block follows a gang of tough inner-city kids who try to defend their turf against an invasion of savage alien creatures, turning a South London apartment complex into an extraterrestrial warzone.

Inner City vs. Outer Space. The simple idea of a bunch of delinquents in London stumble onto a bunch of aliens and end up fighting them in their part of the ghetto. Nick Frost plays a small role as weed dealer to the people on this block but it centers around a group of kids who end up fighting these monsters on their block and they have no clue what they are, they just look like a bunch of alien gorillas. I have been waiting to watch this movie for a while now, and it didn’t disappoint, Its a fun action movie with the slight twist British comedy. If you are into British movies, and anything from Simon Pegg or Nick Frost then you have to watch this movie.

Review: Blitz

A tough cop is dispatched to take down a serial killer who has been targeting police officers.

I do enjoy movies with Jason Statham, he always seems to be beating the crap out of someone, but this is something a little different for him. Chasing down a cop killer and they can’t seem to get the guy in the eyes of the Law. It isn’t his usual ass kicking in this movie but he does portray a very intimidating character in the movie and its an interesting story with a twist at the end.
