You can pre-order the new iPhone 5s from xcite with a KD100 deposit [link]. I tried looking for the price, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Anyone knows how much it costs in Kuwait?
Update: Q8path says the 16 GB white or black is selling for KD 300 at Eureka [link].
Update 2: Mark says the shops in Sharq are selling the 16 GB between KD 320-360, while Eureka is selling the iPhone 5c for KD220 [248am].

Here’s a video shot by an American lady working in Kuwait. She’s not a military worker, so she lives off base and be out and about in Kuwait like a normal foreigner. She works for a company that does business with the American Military in Kuwait and not married to a Kuwaiti, so her point of view is the closest to an average American as you can get.
The video here offers a nice glimpse into how an American would live in Kuwait. Just like a typical Kuwaiti, she goes to The Avenues mall on weekends. She speaks very positively about local women’s sense of makeup and fashion, how shopping here is excellent, and what she would normally wear when going out in Kuwait.
I liked the video, it showed how Kuwait is really like. Lots of international shops, very normal dress attire (minus the hot shorts and tube tanks), and the abundance of American and international restaurants.
Here are some of her words about Kuwait (I just pasted a few short paragraphs, you can check the whole thing [here]):
First of all they are VERY accepting of American culture and lifestyle, for the most part. NO as a woman I don’t have to be fully covered. We just have to be mindful and respectful. So sure I can wear a skirt or a short dress and they really cannot do much to punish you, but you just have to be willing to deal with the awkward stares lol but it’s really not as strict here as you may think it is.
The cost of living here is quite expensive, the Kuwaiti dinar is almost 3 and a half times more than 1 US Dollar. The Kuwaiti Dinair also beats the Euro, so Kuwait is FAR from third world living, contrary to what most might believe.
As for the demographics here, Kuwaiti’s are surprisingly more like the minority here. There are tons of Filipinos, Ethiopians, Somali’s, Egyptians, Nigerians, Brits, Americans, Indians, Pakistani, and other races here as well. It really is quite a nice mixture of people
Did I tell you how much American culture is accepted here?! They have everything we have and much more: Krispy Kreme, Chili’s, PF Changs, Applebee’s, Buffalo’s, McDonald’s (of course) and ALL of them deliver.
I also love how the culture here is so beauty obsessed. Makeup artistry, plastic surgery and all things beauty are all the rave here. People are always looking for the next best thing, we have everything state of the art with beauty and cosmetics. Which makes the makeup artist like me fit right in

Selfridges was robbed last night by two men, just before the store’s closing time. They were both caught by the public a few minutes after the raid. The men used axes to break the jewelry boxes, wore a burka and a helmet as disguise, and used a motorbike to run away. They were caught when the bike slid, causing the robbers to fall down [link].

I believe this is the cheapest price right now for the new Samsung S4 LTE phone in Kuwait. This attractive deal can be found on sheeel.com till stocks last. You should buy it ASAP if you really want it, great deals don’t last long on this site. KD180 is a pretty good price for this technologically advanced phone.

Sheeel.com has a great deal on the new Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE phone. They’re selling it for just KD 193, and you can get it in both white or black.
The savings might not seem much, but if you’re really in the market for this new phone, then you’ll like getting it cheaper.

This is a real improvment. Sheeel.com are now selling Tom Ford’s perfumes, in addition to their daily amazing deals.
Black Orchid is a perfume my son is very interested in. We were at the Tom Ford boutique at the Avenues last month checking it out. I hated the scent. My taste leans more towards the more sophisticated Arabian Oud than this awful perfume. But that’s differing personal tastes I guess. Either way, kudus to Sheeel.com for expanding into more attractive and realistic shopping options.
Anyways, the 100 ml is being sold for less than KD 50 on sheeel.com. Click this [link] to buy one TODAY.
Btw, today’s sheeel.com deal is the Samsung Galaxy camera which they’re selling for just KD 101. I’ve written about this very camera twice before [here] and [here], and it’s an absolute steal at this price. The site was selling it for KD 130 back in Jan.

Apple has finally added Arabic as an official keyboard option when buying a laptop. The option is available for free at both the US and the UK stores.
Many of us reluctantly buy our Macbooks from Kuwait just to have that option, paying enormous profit markups in exchange. Now we don’t have to do that anymore.
Apple’s US and UK online stores let you chose Arabic as a keyboard language when buying a Macbook. I’m not sure if the option is also available in their physical stores, but I doubt it. Keep in mind though, the option is just available for laptops not iMacs. But this isn’t a huge problem because the iMac Arabic keyboards are priced very reasonably in Kuwait anyways.
I’m obviously happy about the news, but personally frustrated at the lousy timing. I just bought a new 13″ MacBook Pro last month, plus a state of the art MaBook Air last August. Both English KB only. On the bright side, I’m hoping they can change my keyboards for a reasonable fee now that they are officially selling Arabic in the States.
