Posh Cafe@360 Mall

16 Jan 2010  2 Comments

After spending some time yesterday morning at GulfRun car show at 360 Mall, I decided to go in and have a quick snack/meal somewhere in the mall. So we just walked into the open area with the cafe’s and decided to try Posh Cafe. I thought the name was kind of snobby and unoriginal, but went against my urge and sat there anyway. I didnt take any pictures and this is not an in-depth review. But we tried a selection of sliders, the chicken lettuce wrap and some juices. The presentation and taste of the food was very good. The waiters were professional, and the atmosphere was nice and open. Since it was a quick snack, I will have to go back again with the intention of really digging in and ordering a real meal. But so far it looks pretty good.

A few weeks ago, both Frankom and Qortuba posted about 2 different models of portable speakers, the iHome and the X-mini II. And because I’ve got both models I thought I might do a comparison.

The iHome is a 2 speakers that has a cool storage mechanism, and and they are a bit smaller than the X-mini II (see picture above). And because its 2 speakers you get stereo sound.

James Bond Re-Runs

28 Dec 2009  4 Comments

Ian Fleming created his legacy, and it continues until current times. I don’t think there is a person who doesn’t enjoy 007 in general. Showmovies Action have recently been putting re-runs of all the Bond movies and anytime i see them on i have to start watching. Probably the worst Bond movies were Pierce Brosnan’s even though he had potential to play the part. And maybe the worst casted Bond was Timothy Dalton. Sean Connery and Roger Moore were great, though I am enjoying Daniel Craig in this new role. He has given Bond a new refreshing and “badass” feel. Gotta love those Bond movies.

Pizza Rustica – Restaurant Review

After seeing a movie, we decided to have lunch at the Avenues (even though it was crowded, we were hungry).

My wife suggested that we try Pizza Rustica, I know that it was opened a while ago but we still haven’t been there, The restaurant’s location isn’t that great either(I almost didn’t go there because of that, I wanted something that had outside seating, the weather was amazing). It’s located at the end of the food-court opposite to Applepees.

When we got there we noticed that they HAD a few tables on their balcony, we immediately sat there.I ordered an eggplant appetizer and a pizza and my wife had a ravioli.

Let me say that the food was great, all of it. one of the hardest things to get right is the pizza crust, and I absolutely loved theirs. of course fast food pizza are getting disgusting here in Kuwait, so I’m not getting my pizza fix that often any more.

Pizza Rustica is simply the best pizza in Kuwait, and of course good experience doesn’t come from the food alone, the service was excellent too. the staff were helpful and knew their menu, recommended the eggplant dish and juices that we loved too.

Sherlock Holmes – Movie Review

Sherlock Holmes

I went to see the the movie today at the Avenues Mall. I arrived a little late, this was bound to happen during the weekend.

The movie was great I absolutely loved it (maybe because I’m a big fan of Sherlock Holmes to start with). I am loving almost everything Robert Downey Jr. is doing at the moment. So I definitely recommend it.

The movie is directed by Guy Ritchie, who also directed “Snatch” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”

Fatburger

Fatburger Dubai.jpg

Last October, during the GITEX expo in Dubai, me and Heema where strolling through Dubai mall looking for Ms. Fields when we came across Fatburger. I was surprised because I haven’t heard that they opened in Dubai. And because we are burger junkies, we didn’t even think twice before standing in line to order.

After a 7-8 minute wait for our order and a 15 second eating session we came to this conclusion, Fatburger is easily the best fastfood burger place in the gulf I’ve tried so far, until Shake Shack opens that is.

I didn’t post about this earlier because I’ve lost my sony point-and-shot, that I got last April, and with it all my pics :/

Avatar – Review

21 Dec 2009  4 Comments

avatar_poster2

I went to watch Avatar on Friday after hearing alot about it without really reading much. All i knew was that it was a James Cameron movie and the most expensive of all time, and sci-fi based. I am not the biggest sci-fi fan. I appreciated the idea behind District 9 but at times thought it was too far fetched and just silly. Not to say that Avatar is not far fetched, its just different. First of all, graphically, its like nothing any of us has ever seen before. The colors, the images and the scenes are out of this world, literally. There is the whole underlined meaning of global warming/green peace/save the world, as well as the curiosity most people have of other life forms. Its a very long movie, but the action scenes and twists in the storyline keep you interested all the way to the end. James Cameron has a very vivid imagination to be able to think up a story like this and implement it onto the screen. Great movie, a must-see even for non sci-fi fans.

Gulf Run 5 Teaser – Exclusive

2 Dec 2009  7 Comments

With Gulf Run 5 right around the corner, at Up Till One we have got our hands on an exclusive teaser.  The event will begin on the 15th and 16th of January in 360 Mall with a car show. All the cars taking part will be on display and it is open to the public. Exotic, tuned up and stock cars will all be available for everyone to see.

Maybe many of you have heard of rumours surrounding this years event. And this teaser just adds fuel to the fire!

Rumour number 1 : Gulf Run 5 has become a 3 day event this year, a day extra from what was being marketed earlier. Credibility of rumour ? As you can see from the dates in the teaser clip, it seems it has been prolonged by one day. Let’s just wait and see!

Rumour number 2 : Gulf Run 5 will include a drift course this year.  Believe it or not, Gulf Run 5 is being rumoured to be giving “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” a run for their money with this brand new event in their schedule. Credibility of rumour ? Let’s just wait and see…..

There will be only 50 drivers participating in the event due to safety measures, but thanks to the Gulf Run staff, they have made the entrance for spectators easy, and they are more than welcome to the event.

Expect everything from a Honda CRX to a KTM Xbow, and everything in between at this years event. It is being hyped as an event that cannot be missed by anyone, let alone car enthusiasts.

For any questions you can go to their website at www.thegulfrun.com or send emails here to us at www.uptill1.com and we will be more than happy to relay your msgs and concerns.

thanks to the guys at GulfRun and Zdistrict.

Stay tuned for new news and updates from the Gulf Run as we will try and be the first to break the news.

UPDATE : This video, like the ones before, was made by NegativEffect, they are doing a great job for amateurs just having fun with cars and cameras. Keep up the great work and waiting for your newest video.
