Khazan Spicy Scallop is The Quarantine KFC Replacement

Nothing in this world compares to KFC spicy chicken. It is the tastiest fried chicken ever, and regardless how many fried chicken concepts open in Kuwait, nothing comes close. I have been craving KFC for the past 3 months, and since I came back to Kuwait I was on quarantine. I needed the closest thing to KFC so I started ordering the fried chicken options from supermarkets via Tons App. The closest thing I got was Khazan Spicy Scallop. You can literally make the closest thing to KFC Spicy Zinger at home. One more week to go and I will go to the closest KFC branch.

Kuwaiti Plays (Masraheyat) on Netflix Starting with Bye Bye London by Abdulhussain Abdulredha

I couldn’t believe the news that Kuwait plays (Masraheyat) started to show on Netflix. I believe it was a genius decision by Netflix team to start with Bye Bye London as their first play. It is one of the most popular plays in Kuwait. Until this day people reference scenes from Bye Bye London. Netflix is competing hard with Shahid and OSN. Right now I have subscription for Netflix, Shahid, and OSN. I have Netflix, because I like their original TV Shows. I have Shahid for the Khaleeji TV shows such as AlKoun Fi Kaffa, and I have OSN because my family wants to watch another TV Show by Suad Abdullah. I believe Netflix will be in a stronger position if they include more Turkish TV Shows.

Ufff The Best and Largest Pop Culture E-Commerce Store in Kuwait

I always lookup Kuwait latest E-Commerce websites. A lot of websites doesn’t have much design and branding, but the one I am talking about today is completely different. This is the largest pop culture website in Kuwait and it is called Ufff. The term in Kuwaiti means WOW, so I loved the website name. At Ufff, they sell Funko Pops, keychains, soft toys, bags, wallets, T shirts, caps, socks, mugs, notebooks, board games, and wall art. The thing I liked the most is that they have a crazy collection of Funko Pops. My nephews and nieces are big collectors, so I always buy them Funko Pops every now and then.

I have talked before about how Funko became very popular in Kuwait where you find them almost everywhere. I bought few for myself, and my favorite one has always been the KFC one. There are few collections that I am thinking of buying, but not sure yet. If I decide to collect Funko Pops, I will buy the following collections.

  • Boku no Hero Academia
  • Dragon Ball
  • One Piece
  • Death Note
  • Naruto
  • Bleach
  • Attack on Titan

Salary Cuts During The Corona Crisis in Kuwait

I can’t believe what is happening these days with the corona virus. Businesses ran out of cash, tenants aren’t paying rent, and employees salaries are being cut. It is a pure survival mode for businesses and employees to get through this crisis. There were lots of businesses that were suffering before the crisis, and these businesses will definitely go bankrupt now. These businesses already have lots of loans, so taking more loans won’t solve the issue. In the end all these loans will be paid back. To survive majority of businesses cut their employees salaries in Kuwait. I realized that lots businesses are within the same range of salary cuts. In March some companies were paying full salaries and some were cutting 30-50%. In April some companies are cutting 50-80% of the salaries and some aren’t even paying salaries. They only cover housing and food, but they can’t pay any salary because they don’t have money. Now we are in May, and things aren’t getting any better. The reason employees are accepting salary cuts, because there aren’t other options. Either they take salary cut and make some money or make nothing. Trying to find another job is almost impossible, so sticking to a job at hand is much safer. Hope everything goes back to normal very soon.

Postshipper | Ultra Fast Shipping During The Corona Crisis

I have been using Postshipper for quite some time. Overall I am very happy with their service, their only issue is the custom charges that I have to pay by cash when they deliver the shipment. I like to pay everything online for convenience, but sadly there isn’t an option where I can pay everything online right now. They should add paying custom charges online, because sometimes they arrive and I don’t have cash at home. During the corona crisis, I think Postshipper is the best company in terms of speed. Posta Plus Mybox became extremely slow that I reduced my shipments with them by 80%. I have a shipment very soon with Posta Plus, so lets see if there are any improvements with the speed.

Most Restaurants in Kuwait Are Selling Cook Your Own Meal Boxes

I can’t believe how much things have changed after the spread of corona virus in Kuwait. I never thought that one day I will be able to order from Slider Station and Starbucks for delivery. The corona virus changed the industry so fast and it is challenging for lots of businesses, but this is when you see new ideas in the industry. I like the fact that people in Kuwait were very quick to come up with ideas that increases their sales. Now you see cook your own meal boxes or BBQ boxes across most restaurants in Kuwait. In the past, it was mostly burgers, hotdogs, kebabs, tawook, and tikka. Now it ranges from shawarma to steak. Let me share some of the concepts that I never thought will ever sell cook your own meal boxes even if it falls into the category of burgers and kebabs.

1- Le Relais de l’Entrecôte (Steak)

 

2- Pita Bar (Shawarma) | Photo by theculinaryquest

 

3- Yelo Pizza | Photo by alnahham_1

 

4- Slider Station (Burger)

 

5- Villa Fayrouz (Kebab & Tikka)

6- Rock House Sliders

7- China Garden (Noodles)

8- Abby Shawaya (Roasting Chicken)

9- Leila Min Lebnen (Kebab & Tikka)

10- Vigonovo (Pasta)

11- Table Otto (Pizza)

It is extremely innovative for steak, shawarma, and pizza. This is an industry changer. I am waiting for KFC to make fry your own chicken, I am getting hungry already !

Abnormal Demand For Gym Equipment Purchasing and Rental in Kuwait

There is a sudden demand for gym equipments in Kuwait. People in Kuwait are buying and renting gym equipments for home use since they can’t go to gyms. According to a friend of mine prices went up 50-100% for gym equipment and I called a family member who sells gym equipment and asked him about the trend. He told me we sold our entire stock including the showroom samples. Gyms in Kuwait started renting their equipment, and this is how they are making money right now.
