The Experience of Selling a Car in Kuwait

Few days ago I sold my car to buy a new one, and the process to sell the car was a nightmare. I started by taking my car to the dealership, and I got a lower price than actually selling the car in the market. When I left the dealer, one of the guys who stand on the streets to buy cars walked up to me and told me the price that I got and my car’s milage. I was surprised, because I wondered how did he know about such details. He told me the dealer called him and asked him to buy the car. I didn’t know that big car dealers deal with the people standing outside to buy their cars. Anyway I took his number and told him I will think about it. The next day I posted an Ad on 4Sale, and I got few messages. Back and forth, I realized no one was very serious to buy the car. I contacted someone I met in the past to buy the car, and he was very interested. He gave me a high price, and I was ready to sell. The moment he came and I told him the places where I painted the car after an accident, he dropped the price a lot. I am fully transparent and have nothing to hide when it comes to any deal. I told him that I will think about it. This guy is very transparent in doing business, so whatever price he commits to, he sticks to it until we finish the deal. I contacted the other guy who was standing outside the dealer, and he told me that he will pay a higher price than the guy I met in the past. I asked him to give me a specific number, he wouldn’t tell and kept avoiding the question. He kept saying that I will give you a higher price, so I said OK let us meet then. When he saw the car he dropped 3,000 KD and told me because of the paint and previous accidents. Negotiation back and forth until we agreed on a price and that he will be charged for car inspection. We took the car for inspection, and the report showed a tiny comment. He said we need to drop the price even more. I told him then I would sell to the other guy, because I will get a better price and that was true. He told me you know what lets stick to the price we agreed on. I told him is that a final agreement, and he said yes it is. I told him that you will deposit the entire amount in my bank then I will transfer the car. He was fine with that even though he doesn’t know me. Sadly we don’t have something like escrow where a 3rd party takes the money and car transfer documents and then exchange them once everything is verified. I heard in Saudi Arabia you can sell a car via Link where you send a link with an amount and car registration info, and if it is paid then the car will be automatically be transferred under the name of who bought it. Back to our topic, he told me to go to the bank to issue a cashier’s check. Before entering the bank he told me that the deal is right in front of me, but to continue he wanted to drop another 500 KD. I had enough by then, so I told him how many times do we agree on a final deal. I told him you know what I am done, and want to cancel this deal because I don’t feel comfortable at all. I told him that I hate dealing with people who don’t stick to their word after committing. He was really surprised, and I felt like no one told him such thing in the past because that is their usual practice. For me it isn’t about money as much as transparency. I told him I don’t care about money, and dealing with such people with such behavior really bothers me. He said you know what if you pay the car inspection fees then that will be my final price. I agreed, and we walked into the bank. He issued the check and I deposited into my bank account. Then we went to transfer the insurance policy, and lastly we went to transfer the car under his name.

From this experience, I wouldn’t deal with these people again because they don’t stick to their word. Their negotiating tactics are terrible and they wasted so much of my time.

Pre-Order a Game or Wait For 1-2 Years After Release

My friends and I had a discussion about pre-ordering a game or waiting for a year after release. I personally pre order games all the time. I order both physical when it comes to collector’s edition and digital through Playstation Store. The reason I pre order physical games is because getting the collector’s edition at official price will be impossible later on, especially for Playstation popular exclusives. For the digital pre-orders, I like to get the pre-order bonuses, such as a weapon or so. I also like to play the game right away instead of waiting for sometime. Some of my friends wait for a year or two after release, and in my opinion it has pros and cons. The pros is that they get the game at a much lower price where they save 50-75% from the original price and it might include all DLCs. The game will also be almost bug free, because by that time there aren’t any more patches to fix any bugs. The cons will be, they miss out on all the discussions about the game, because when we meet we talk about the game. For me I feel waiting a year or two is the better option, but I personally can’t do it and I always like to play the game right away.

Tea Party Sweets | The Best Trifle in Kuwait

I realized that I can’t go on diet for more than a week. I have to find something that I eat every few days, and my latest thing is Tea Party Sweets Medium Trifle. The picture above is Large Trifle, but I try to avoid it because it gets more messy when I eat it even though it tastes amazing. The reason I really liked this Trifle is because of the quality and size of fruits and the lightness of their custard. The blackberry is really big and tasty, and it tastes even better with their custard. I highly recommend, leaving the Trifle for 3 hours in the fridge before eating it. The biscuit at the bottom of the trifle will hold much better and it will be easier to eat. This is something that I recommend trying as soon as you can.

The All New Toyota Land Cruiser 2022 Prices in Kuwait

I went today to check the all new Toyota Land Cruiser 2022. I liked the car a lot, and I know for a fact that this car hold value like no other car. The price for the very basic model starts at 18,995 KD. It doesn’t come with a turbo engine. Turbo engine starts at 21,750 KD. The higher model which is Turbo as well but has leather seats starts at 22,650 KD. The higher model which has bigger rims and more features starts at 24,500 KD. The maximum option model is priced at 28,745 KD.

This price list went viral on Whatsapp, and I obtained it from my friends few days after the release

I hate going to car dealers in Kuwait because these people outside whenever they see a Toyota or Lexus they get so close to the car and put their hands on the car’s body. I really felt like I was in the Walking Dead TV Show and was trying to avoid zombies with my car. When I passed them, two cars followed me and parked next to me. As soon as I got out of my car, they asked me how much do I want to sell my car for. I told them I don’t want to sell. They are so annoying and make the experience of going a car dealer really bad.

I really wish there is a company like the ones in the US where they come and evaluate the car at my home and I wish that I can buy the car online. In the US, I bought a car while being in Kuwait via phone. The experience was really amazing. All they did was sending me the documents via Fedex and I signed them and wired their money. The process was very simple.

Update: I decided to buy the new Land Cruiser, and I went today to close the deal. The person who helped me at Toyota was really great and really helpful. His name is Walid Fatouh, and he was very patient with me. I asked him tons of questions and he is extremely knowledgable so it was easy for him to answer all my questions. If I ever deicide to buy another car, I will go to Walid again. The customer experience was really wonderful.

Walid Fatouh Phone #: 50164422. You can call him if you have any questions

Chuck’s | Best Burger in Kuwait

I eat burgers all the time, and I have three restaurants that I consider them favorites. My favorites are BBT, Shake Shack, and Chuck’s. Lots of my friends love Thinnies, but it wasn’t my taste. Thinnies have a limited options the burgers are very basic. I don’t eat ketchup and mustard, so their options doesn’t work for me. I wish they have something like a special sauce that I can have instead of ketchup and mustard. Now I consider Chuck’s the best burger in Kuwait. From their menu, I usually get #1 and #2, and both are really good. I just wish they have an option of potato bun, which I really like. They had an issue in the past where the lettuce was wilted, and people complained about that issue, but now it is fixed. Chuck’s is very unique, because their meat patty quality is impressive, and their sauces are really tasty. It is a meal that I really enjoy having, and I don’t get enough of it. I feel like to order now while I am writing this article. When I browse online, I see lots of burger restaurants on Talabat and Deliveroo, but I usually stay within my comfort zone. I just order from the restaurants that I usually eat at. The reason is that few times, I ordered from burger restaurants that were new to me, and they were horrible. My friends are calling Chuck’s the In-N-Out of Kuwait since it is the closest burger to In-N-Out burger in the US.

Try Chuck’s out and let me know what you think in the comment. Right now they are available at Deliveroo.

Chicken King | KFC Alternative in Kuwait

I have been loyal to KFC since I was a kid, and until today I don’t know any concept that comes close to KFC in terms of taste. The secret recipe of 11 herbs is just perfect. My only issue is the effort I have to put for KFC to taste perfect. Every time I go and wait 20-25 minutes for a new batch, so I eat it hot, fresh, and tender. If there is a long line which is usually during dinner time, I just wait for my turn and it will taste perfect. During dead hours, never get whatever is in their oven, because it will be cold and dry. When I order online, same thing it comes cold and dry. There are good alternatives for KFC such as Naif, and I order their bucket every now and then. The new alternative which I really liked but taste very different is Chicken King. I tried their spicy fried chicken, and I was impressed. The chicken is high quality, it arrived very hot, and the chicken was very tender. Close to my experience when I order a new batch at KFC by myself. The spices taste is completely different, so during my first bite it took me time to process the taste. After the first few bites, I started to like it. Now I am waiting for my next day off to order Chicken King again. I haven’t tried their sandwiches or grilled chicken, so I have no clue what they taste like. I recommend trying the spicy fried chicken at Chicken King. They are available on Talabat and Deliveroo.

Google Pixel 6 Pro Will Be My Next Phone

I have been using Samsung Z Fold2 since last October. I really like the fold feature, but I hated Samsung bloatware and OS. I have no clue why I always get a notification saying that an app was shut down for violating security. Until now I have no clue which app is causing this issue because it is all in the background. I tried lots of Android phones, and never faced such issue. The best Android experience has always been Google Pixel, but the problem with Google Pixel they came with very low storage. These days I consider 128 GB low storage for my usage. I need a minimum of 256 GB, and 512 GB is ideal. Google Pixel has a very clean OS, and in my opinion it it the closest phone to an iphone. Now with Google releasing Pixel 6 Pro that comes in 256 GB and 512 GB and a camera that is 4 times the performance of previous cameras. They got my attention, and I really want to buy it. The only issue is how to buy it, because in the past Google Store used to ship to forwarding addresses. Then after Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, they completely stopped. I didn’t buy Pixel 4, but for Pixel 5, they listed it on Amazon. I bought it directly from Amazon, so it was very easy. Now the issue is that most probably, they won’t sell it on Amazon. I am guessing because Pixel 5a, which was released today wasn’t available on Amazon. I believe same thing will happen with the Pixel 6 Pro. My solution is to order it on a friend or family address in the US and they ship it to me, but I hate doing that. I really hope they sell it on Amazon and make the process easy for buyers outside of the US.

Automatic Soap Dispenser

I am a big fan of automatic soap dispensers. Every time I wash my hand, I like to have the same exact quantity of soap. The first time I bought an automatic soap dispenser was 3 years ago and it was from Simple Human. I used to fill it with Simple Human liquid soap, but now I fully switched to Method soap. Method is a plant based soap without any chemicals, so it works perfectly for me. The automatic soap dispenser from Simple Human worked very well with me, except two at my home that stopped working. Now I saw that Amazon released their own automatic soap dispenser, so I decided to give it a shot. It has a timer of 20 seconds to wash your hand to make sure it is fully clean. I haven’t received yet, but once I do, I will share my opinion about it.

Buying Fire Pit in Kuwait

Burning wood using a fire pit and brewing tea using that fire pit is something I really enjoy. Last year, my cousin bought a fire pit and we used it at the chalet to burn olive wood and then used it to grill shrimp. We first burnt the wood and then when it settled, we started grilling the shrimp. My cousin is an amazing chef, so the taste of shrimp was extremely delicious. The experience overall was really amazing, so I decided to buy a fire pit for my home. I went to lots of places, but they were sold out everywhere. I literally went to 5 Co-ops, but they were all sold out. By the end of winter, I found some really nice fire pits at Home Garden, but they were much more expensive than the other ones available in the market.

The price was 250 for the one I liked, but since it was the end of winter so I decided not to buy it. Few days ago, I decided to buy a fir pit before winter starts. Luckily, fire pits are discounted heavily. The one I liked is now selling for 175 KD, so I decided to get it. Now I am waiting for next winter to start using the new fire pit. There are lots of options available in the market, but the nicest designs are at Home Garden.
