I’ve been meaning to buy one of these ever since I saw this episode of Friends back when I was in college. My reaction on trying out the recliners in the showroom was almost the same as Joey’s and Chandler’s and I couldn’t resist not buying one. The one I bought was listed 95 KD and I got it for 85 after discount. They have a lot more models and more expensive ones but none of them have the built-in refrigerators or speakers as I’ve seen online. This is what I need for dusty weekends in Kuwait.
Thanks Usman Ch,

Burger King & Pizza Hut are offering a 15% discount during the same period
A couple of my friends went jet skiing on Thursday at one of the beaches along Gulf Street. You’ll find a few places along the coast near Kuwait Towers and the 24 hours McDonalds that provide skis rental. The rates are 15 KD for 30 minutes and 25 KD for 1 hour. Unfortunately I couldn’t join them as I’m still recovering from that fucking viral cold.
The number of Indian associations in Kuwait seems to be increasing and thats a good sign. People will have a wide choice of cultural clubs to join or maybe even find that their college alumni has a branch here! The Indian Embassy in Kuwait requires that each association register themselves with the Embassy along with details of the office bearers and signatures of all the members. They’ve got an updated list on their website and you can download it [here]
Theres another list from Konkani World.com but it looks like they haven’t updated it in a while. [link]
My friend BVG and I had just completed a ‘grueling’ 4 hour examination today and I suggested we go shoot some lead at the shooting range. It had been a while since my last visit and I’m happy to report that I still suck as much as last time 😛
The 9mm automatic pistol has become like a favorite firearm for me since I like the way it nestles in my palm and the recoil is almost nil when compared to a .45. We payed 6 KD each for a round with the 9mm. One round gets you two clips and each clip contains 10 bullets so thats like 300 fils per bullet. Shooting at the range can be quite addictive and during the last visit I think my friends and I spent quite a bit of money trying out various weapons. Its good for the occasional treat when you’ve got the ‘I fucking need to shoot something‘ feeling 🙂
To get to the shooting range, go past 350 Mall on 6th Ring Road and then take the exit marked ‘Hunting and Equestrian Club’, once you reach that road go past the hunting club and you’ll come up to a large building, thats Mayadeen a.k.a Shooting Range. You’ll have to submit your civil ID to the security personnel in the lobby and then select what weapons you want to shoot with at the counter. Rifles and pistols are in different ranges.
I’ll be moving to a new domain as soon as I finish up the final touches on my blog and photography pages. Hope to see you on the new site.
I came across this site the other day and I think its rather cool. Theres a lot of really cool effects you can use to create trippy wallpapers. Once you’re done making an image you can save it and download the JPEG file. Check out some of the pictures in the gallery.
