I wouldn’t usually and willingly go into a cinema to watch a movie about sea pirates, not even pirates of the Caribbean, but if it was a Tom Hanks then it’s a must see movie regardless of the story or the trailer. I went to watch Captain Philips yesterday and I have to say I […]
Last week I went to see the movie Prisoners which I’ve been looking forward to watching for a while since its starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. I did cave and watch a bit of the trailer to know the general feel of the movie I was anticipating and then when I noticed the trailer […]
As September is drawing to a close I sit back and wonder how fast will it feel before we celebrate 2014? I didn’t care much for how 2013 turned out so far but I suppose there is still hope that the last quarter would make up for it. Speaking of which, I came upon something, […]
When Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer star in a movie, you expect it to be one worth watching and their latest movie, Malavita a.k.a. The Family, was one good movie I watched recently. The movie is about the family of an ex-mafia boss who ratted out on his friends therefore the FBI had to […]
“We Are the Millers” movie is currently third on the US box office chart for the fourth week since it’s release and since it just arrived to the cinemas of Kuwait I wasted no time booking tickets for a movie with such box office success.
There, at the very end of the Seif strip of restaurant overlooking the Seif Palace, sits a restaurant space that now has the name Pintxos. Many restaurants have come and gone in this particular spot, an Italian one if I recall correctly, then another Japanese one. None of the restaurants that opened in that spot […]
When I knew Jobs movie was in the cinema I wanted to go see it right away but I was put off by the unbelievable amount of bad reviews and feedbacks I got. Some said it was the movie was boring, others said the movie was all shot in a boardroom, others hated Ashton Kutcher […]
Driving through the streets of Kuwait, you notice the fruit bearing branches of palm trees covered in green mesh and waiting. Inside the green mesh, the millions of date fruit are slowly ripening. These days, the time has come to take the dates out and see how they’ve turned out.
There was a block of houses, all white and modern and lovely, being built in our neighbourhood close to our apartment. I passed by everyday, thinking to myself how beautiful they were and how, if one day I ever get to build a house of my own, I’d love to have one just like those. […]
I was looking at cinema listings for Jobs movies in both cinescape and grand cinema in Kuwait when I noticed a movie listing with an “exclusive” written next to it. I did a little research and realised that a movie that it was called Elysium that it starred Matt Damon and Jodi Foster, and that […]
One of two movies I really wanted to watch was The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. It was out in June, and I waited for it to arrive to the cinemas in Kuwait all summer long but that didn’t happen because it was banned along with The Internship. Luckily both comedy movies weren’t […]
It all started during the maghrib prayers time last week. My husband was on his way out to go and pray in the nearby mosque when he heard soft mewing. There was a tiny kitten, mewing at him and licking her lips. He came back inside and told me about the new arrival and so […]
Elba’s traditional Kuwaiti bakery brought back their famous Elba with the start of the holy month of Ramadan. I’ve missed their elba, but they only make it in Ramadan and so on the very first week they sent me one cold pot of saffron-y elba, Dallah’s way of a Ramadan greeting.
