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.
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.
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.
When I bought Red Dead Redemption 2, I really couldn’t go beyond Chapter 1 because of my PS4 Pro fan noise. The fan noise was so high that I can’t focus at all even with the volume being high. When I searched online, most of the solutions were about cleaning the PS4 Pro by using a compressed air can and removing the dust. I went and tried that solution and it never worked. The issue was more complexed than that, so when I asked around. I was told that the first model of PS4 Pro has this common problem of fan noise. The reason is because the thermal paste dries up fast with the first model. The fix is simply removing and cleaning the dried thermal paste, and apply new one. The noise dropped by 60% and since then I started playing on my PS4 Pro. There are tons of guides that shows you how to replace the thermal paste on PS4 Pro. Check them out and try this solution if cleaning out doesn’t fix the issue.
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.

This is one of the worst days ever when my aunt woke up and her iPhone is stuck in recovery mode as the picture above. It seems her iPhone updated while she is sleeping and since then the iPhone got stuck. She restarted her iPhone 7 Plus using the power button and volume down and nothing happened. She got really worried because she never made any backup and she has years of photos that she really want. She called me and asked me if I can fix it, so I told her let me try it out. Her main concern was the data on the phone, so she wants it to be repaired without losing any of the data. When I got the iPhone, I spent 6 hours doing the following
- I connected it to my Macbook Pro and tried to update the iPhone via iTunes then I got error 14. My iTunes is the most updated version
- I tried different USB Cable & Ports on Macbook Pro
- I tried to update using iTunes on Windows PC
- I tried different USB cables and ports on Windows PC
- I redownloaded IPSW file and tried to update and both Macbook Pro and Windows PC
- I tried IPSW Beta Update
- I tried Repair and Exit Recovery Mode feature on different 3rd party programs, and couple of them were paid version ( Dr.Fone, 3uTools,Fixppo..etc)
I tried everything I found on the internet, but nothing worked. I told her that she has to bite the bullet and restore the phone via iTunes where she lose all the data and phone will be like new. The restore feature on iTunes was the only thing that worked and it was so sad losing all the pictures and data.
Apple should fix this issue ASAP, because lots of people are frustrated with Recovery Mode Loop and Error 14. There is no way around it except few cases.
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 | S in Kuwait. Both consoles will be sold through the same distributors in Kuwait
To pre-order through one of the local stores in Kuwait. The ones that will have Xbox Series X | S during release is the following

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
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.
Pre-order through one of the local stores in Kuwait.

I have been buying statues from First4Figures since 2014 and my very first one was Link on Epona. A lot of people ask me if I am willing to sell it, but I don’t sell my collection. I bought most of the Legend of Zelda collection from First4Figures, and I think it is time to release another version of Link on Epona. I don’t want an identical one of the old one, but a new one from either Ocarina of Time or Breath of The Wild.
I still think that First 4 Figures, Prime 1 Studio, and Tsume Art are the best statue makers in the industry. In my opinion, the strongest line for each of the statue makers is the following.
First 4 Figures: Legend of Zelda
Prime 1 Studio: Guyver
Tsume Art: Naruto & One Piece
