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.

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.

TONS | Online Grocery is The Hottest App in Kuwait Right Now

With the Corona Virus issue spreading all over the world. Most businesses are losing big time. On the other hand, some businesses are thriving and becoming very attractive for investors. In the past there wasn’t a business as attractive as Talabat and Carriage for investors. I don’t think this is the case anymore. The beauty about online groceries is that it works during good times and bad times. During the good times, it provides convenience for the customers. During the bad times, it provides the essentials and it cater for the needs of the customers. For all investors, keep an eye on Tons Online Grocery.

Sad News The Kind Ones Closed Their Store in Los Angeles, CA

Few days ago I heard very sad news that the Kuwaiti concept The Kind Ones closed their Los Angeles branch. The founders are very brave to open in California in the first place, and I respect them for that. The Kind Ones is successful in Kuwait, so I hope the founders the best of luck.

PS4 Dreams is The Most Creative Game Ever

I have always wanted to create my own video game, but the way to develop is extremely complex. Playstation created a very simple engine called Playstation Dreams to develop video games. I was impressed to see creations like Sonic, Mario, and Metal Gear. All games at the early stages, but the concepts are impressive. Since kids are completely out of school, it is a good time to utilize their talent and create wonderful Playstation games.

Phones Resale Value in Kuwait

Few months ago, I decided to sell my Google Pixel 3 XL. I went to phone shops in Sharq Kuwait City, and I was really surprised that I got a low selling price from all the shops. All of the shops told me that they are only interested in buying Apple iPhones or Samsung phones. They are also interested in buying phones that has a warranty in Kuwait. Since I bought my phone from the US, it made it even less attractive. The problem is that I keep changing smartphone brands, and now I am using a OnePlus from the US. I loved OnePlus so much, but again I am worried about the resale value.

If you want a smartphone that holds value, then stick to Apple and Samsung.
