Just learned that the studio behind Quailtynet's Ramadan Ad. is The Bustop

I remember finding them on instagram by coincident and falling in love with the simplicity of their website and laughing on how they describe their work and concept

For example: why did they call themselves The Bus Stop

"We called it The Bustop for the simple reason that we wanted our agency in a bus. Our own mobile agency. Until cultural reality kicked in and we rented an office instead"

Where to go in Istanbul

Here are some recommendations on where to go if you are in Turkey - Istanbul, my brother is there now, so this post is dedicated to him....

Aya Sophia or Hagia Sophia - a church turned mosque, also pass by the blue mosque , they are all next to each other


Topkapi, a place you don't want to miss, I personally loved it, you will see how they lived cooked and dressed 600 years ago 
Ohh yah and have a turkish coffee there, it was the best
we had it inside the palace in a tiny cafe facing the garden. Dad loves their tea
try it, any where you want, mo ela hnak

I remember having the best burger in my life in Park Hyatt Hotel, so if you want one, pass by the hotel at Nisantasi (pronounced Nishantshi street)
KoseBasi - source
Nisantasi is where all the boutiques and stores are, so if you don't want to eat a burger and want to have Kibab, then in front of the hotel there is a nice restaurant that is called kosebasi
Shop at Nisantasi street, efatr kilmokan

Dolmabahçe Palace, is the other palace the sultans moved to afterward, I didn't enjoy it as much as Topkapi. but if you are interested you could go visit click here for more images of our visit

If you mentioned that the weather is hot now then its not a good idea to go visit the Bazzar
once it gets cooler you will enjoy it more
I know you might not need anything from there, but its worth visiting, esma re7t el Bazzar
A place to eat -  Limonata in the top floor of City's Nisantasi Mall.  I loved the decor
Appetizers a7la shay
6ab3an el mall lo3a, ma t9adig ena hal ma63am fee
they have cinema theaters in there if you want to see a movie
(Note: notice this is in Nisantasi street also, so if you happen to be there visit the restaurant)
Istinya Park - source

6ab3an you have to go to istinye park
Kanyon Mall - source
and Kanyon Mall , Harvey Nichols department store is there and a large selection of good restaurants
Enjoy, and hope you discover other exciting stuff to do in Instanbul and share it with us
this post is for you too BBD

Customized Rolex

Bamford Watch Department is a company that personalize a range of steel watches (like Rolex, Ratek Philippe, Audermars Piguet .. etc) and work independently of the watch brands. Meaning the original brands warranties are no longer applicable and your watch will be covered by Bamford for 2 years.

I just learned that Moda Operandi had selected 10 customized limited-edition Rolex watches from Bamford and they are available online to order until the 23 August.

Click here to see the whole collection of Moda Operandi

I also learned that 4 Boutique here in Kuwait used to have some of Bamford watches, but now they don't carry them any more. If you are interested they could order one for you. Your own customized watch. At first I thought I take my watch for them and they work on it, turnes out that you order a new one. You could change its color, write your name on it, anything that makes your watch unique.

4 boutique is located in Industrial Shuwaikh area, near Al-Tilal Complex. for more info click here
