Back Combined Co (BCC) | One of The Best Contractors & Construction Companies in Kuwait

Walid Shaaban founded Back Combined Co (BCC) after working for more than a decade at First United Company. Few years after founding the company, Back Combined became of the most respected companies in Kuwait. Their projects are all over Kuwait, and they build complex and unique projects that very few contractors can build in Kuwait. The are a lot of reasons that Back Combined is rising so fast in the industry. The main reason is that they work with the client as a team not as an enemy. I realized lots of client contractor relationship becomes more of enemies than a team or partners. Also Walid Shaaban is the type of person who never run away from any issue, he will fix it and will find a solution regardless how challenging the issue is. He has a reputation in the market for sticking to his word even if he is at a disadvantage. There is also one great thing about Back Combined where they seek continuous improvement and they never want to stay at the same level. Lastly they constantly research new materials and find ways for customers to save money, and they are willing to take the risk by trying new materials that makes the building process for efficient.

The Most Attractive Offer By Zain 5G Unlimited (10TB) for 15 KD in Kuwait

When I received the ad from a family member about Zain Unlimited 5G for 15 KD. I thought it was a joke, because I know that the price was 100 KD per month. I told him that can’t be true, I don’t see the package dropping in price by 85%. He asked me to check, so I went to Zain’s website and I was really surprised when I saw the offer. I upgraded my personal router and my home router to that 5G package. I wondered what does unlimited means when it comes to usage. It appeared that there is a cap of 10TB, which is sill a lot. The maximum I have reached so far is 1TB, and my average is between 300GB – 500GB. Most of the usage is because of downloading PS4 and PC games. I honestly think that this is the best deal in a very long time. My 4G speed was averaging between 80 to 120MB. Now with 5G I am getting up to 577MB which is much more than what I need.

Mamas & Papas | The Best Baby Brand in Kuwait

I have been buying lots of baby products the past 5 months and the one that really stands out is Mamas & Papas. They are literally the best baby brand in Kuwait. To be the best brand requires a lot of things such as product quality, customer service, quality of delivery, and % of returned products. When it comes to quality, their products are superior. I started buying things I don’t need because of their amazing design and quality. I think I became a stroller collector, because so far I bought 3 and thinking of the 4th one but it is sold out already. Customer service is really great, they are really responsive and knowledgable about their product line. I bought the products from the avenues store and rose is the lady who really took care of me and my wife. She is excellent at following up and when I was interested in a product and it was out of stock. She calls me when it is back in stock because she knows that I am interested in buying that product. Their delivery is really amazing, they deliver very fast. If they are late, they send me an email telling me that there will be a delay. Also the percentage of damaged products is none so far and they always deliver all the products without missing a single package. I bought products from the other baby stores in Kuwait and I really regret that decision. One big store delivered a piece of furniture with missing parts. I talked to them and they sent me the same exact parts that i have not the missing one. I am going back and forth with them and after 2.5 months, they told me that they will refund me via credit card. Until now I didn’t get back the refunded money. They require so much follow up that I am fed up already. Their delivery is also horrible, they mark something delivered and I get an email saying the product was delivered, but I never received anything. 2-3 days later, I get the product. I was told this the trick by the delivery company where they trick the company they signed with.

The management of Al Tayer Group is really impressive, and because of that I would buy everything from them even if it cost much more than their competitors.

Nissan Patrol is The Best Car Deal I Have Seen in 2020

There are tons of offers at Kuwait car dealerships because of the Corona virus. I have seen offers from Maserati, Lincoln, Kia, Volkswagen, and Nissan. The best deals in my opinion were from Kia, Maserati, and Nissan. The best overall deal is Nissan Patrol which was offered at 14,999 KD. It comes in leather and it has front and back sensors. It comes with 5 years warranty and 4 years of service of 50,000 Kilometers. The reason I liked Nissan Patrol is because the car is one of the popular cars in Kuwait. It is a durable car and it holds value. Let me attach the details of the car I saw.

I was told that the deal is for June, but might be extended to July. I think the deal is very attractive, and it is a good time to buy a car if you need one.

Extremely High Demand For Nintendo Switch in Kuwait That Caused Increase in Prices

There is so much demand for video game consoles during the corona crisis. The highest demand is for Nintendo Switch and then Playstation 4. I am so surprised that Nintendo switch cost about $300 which is around 92 KD before the crisis. Now the world wide stock of Nintendo Switch is so low that caused increase in prices due to demand. Before the corona crisis, Nintendo Switch was selling for 115 KD in Kuwait, and sometimes 106 KD + a game. Now the cheapest price I found was 145 KD at AlFuhod and the most expensive is 169.9 at Xcite. I asked my friends who own stores in Rehab Comples about the reason that Nintendo Switch is selling out. They said parents need to keep their kids quite at this time since they are spending time with them much more than ever. Playstation 4 was at the end of cycle so it isn’t worth the investment right now and Playstation 5 is releasing at the end of the year.

Nintendo Switch Prices keep changing so check out these links to buy Nintendo Switch

Where To Pre-Order Xbox Series X in Kuwait

This year is the most exciting year for video game consoles. The release of PS5 and Xbox Series X is making everyone wait for the end of year to arrive ASAP. The competition between Sony and Microsoft is getting much more intense. In 2013, the comparison was mostly about console power. In 2020 things have completely changed and it became about console exclusives. Now the question is where to pre-order Xbox Series X in Kuwait. Both consoles will be sold through the same distributors in Kuwait, and again there will be 2 options to pre-order the console.

The first option is to pre-order through one of the local stores in Kuwait. The ones that I heard from friends that will have Xbox Series X during release is the following

The other option of pre-ordering is from an international site that delivers to Kuwait directly or through a forwarding address.

Sadly a lot of websites in the US stopped delivering to forwarding address such as Gamestop, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target.

I will update the links to actual listings as soon as they are live, so stay posted.

Two Emergency Items That Needs To Be in Each Car in Kuwait

I always like to be prepared in case an emergency, especially with cars. There are lots of times that I was saved by my own emergency items, which I keep in the trunk of my car. From all the items that I bought in the past, two items saved me the most. Even though the chances of an emergency happening is less than 1-2%, it is still very important to have.

The first item is Fix a Flat, which fixes a flat tire by injecting foam into the tire and it will inflate it and seal it for 2 – 4 hours. The first time I used Fix a Flat was 2 years ago when I was in the farm until 3 AM. I was about to get into my car and saw the flat tire and the first thing that came to my mind was what am I going to do, because the spare tire is also flat. The farm is very far away from my home, and I didn’t want to leave my car at the farm and go back home with my brothers. I remembered that I always have Fix a Flat in the trunk of my car, so I took it and pumped the foam into the tire. The tire was inflated and sealed. I drove back home safely and fixed the flat tire the next day. You can buy Fix a Flat from Ace Hardware in Kuwait, which I highly recommend.

The second item is a car battery jump starter by NOCO sold by Garage Shuwaikh in Kuwait. The one I recommend is GB40, which is one of the smaller ones. I also recommend buying the case of GB40. NOCO GB40 has up to 20 charges, which means you can jump start 20 times. I have GB150, which is very large and I don’t think I needed something that big. I used my GB150 few days ago to jump start a family member car. Everyone who saw me jumping start the car with my GB150 decided to buy their own from Garage Shuwaikh. They all thought it was durable and much easier than connecting jump starting cables between two cars. I highly recommend buying NOCO products from Garage Shuwaikh

Where To Pre-Order Playstation 5 (PS5) in Kuwait

The release of Sony Playstation 5 (PS5) this year will be totally different than previous years, because Sony PS5 will release globally at the same time. Now the big question is where to pre-order PS5 in Kuwait. I honestly don’t want to pay above market prices, which is something I used to do a lot back in the day. Going to Rehab Complex and seeing prices where they switch the original price in $ to KWD and still buy the product will never happen again. The first week of release usually have the highest prices then it drops gradually. Now there will be 2 options to pre-order PS5.

The first option is to pre-order through one of the local stores in Kuwait. The ones that I heard from friends that will have PS5 during release is the following

The other option of pre-ordering is from an international site that delivers to Kuwait directly or through a forwarding address.

Sadly a lot of websites in the US stopped delivering to forwarding address such as Gamestop, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target.

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.
