Banta furniture video commercial


I’ve never been to Banta before, but I’ve seen a lot of their paper ads and I know that they sell affordable furniture. What I didn’t know is that they’re actually more like IKEA, and sell a whole lot more stuff than just sofas and beds. I once saw their catalogue at a friend’s place, and was surprises at the number of items they sell, and how organized the catalogue was. Turns out, Banta sell a lot of other smaller household items, like bowls and plates and drawer chests and whatnot.

This is Banat’s first video commercial, and they kinda want it to explain the history of Banta and what Banta really is. Here’s the [link] to Banta’s website, and the [link] to their online catalogue.

Low cal recipes by Diet Care أسرار الطبخ الصحي

A few weeks ago, I got a low-calorie cooking recipe book from Diet Care. The book has more than 45 recipes; from drinks, soups, starters, to main courses and dessert. The book is sold for KD 5, which is not a bad price at all for a diet kind of book. The best part is that it came in both Arabic and English.

Today’s issue of Al-Qabas has a full-page article on the secrets by diet cooking by Diet Care. There are a lot of easy ways where you can cut the calories of meals, just by substituting some of the high-cal ingredients with low-cal more nutritional ones.

Here’s the [link] to the article. Give it the once over, and then decide if the book is worth investing in.

New Kuwaiti online store: Cavarat Mall


  • Cavarat Mall [link] is a new Kuwaiti online store that sells all kinds of phone covers, stickers, chargers and other accessories.
  • They carry things suitable for iPhones, iPods, Galaxies (notes and Ss), and Blackberries.
  • They also sell other things like mugs, and offer services like repair & maintenance.
  • I found their prices to be very reasonable, not at all expensive.
  • Delivery is done within 24 hours, and free of charge.

I haven’t tried the store yet, but if I do, these skins are probably what I would get myself.
