Coupon Companion





While I was browsing at Tibi something went on by it self and started scanning the item I was looking at, see above the green line on the black leather top?






Then a list of items appeared in a box suggesting similar products with good deals .... hmmm the first one might be related to Tibi's black top but the Sofa? I don't think so, the program have searched the image and the word leather too, and the closest it could get is a leather sofa :) 






I don't know where this program came from, but I think I'm gonna leave it for a while, I want to see if its really useful or not, because they mention that its a visual search technology that lets you instantly compare prices or find similar items on almost any product sold online
Let see its effectiveness

We have set a date for the website to be launched, of course this is a startup so anything you see in here is subject to change, for now we are going to start with 5 types of photography to chose from:


1- Fashion
2- Food
3- Portrait

Our job will be looking for photographers in these types and who are available for hire. Last week we were lucky enough to receive a coffee table book titled Select, that aims to showcase talented photographers in Kuwait, what a lovely gift, thank you select team. That would help us a lot in building our directory.

Looking for Thouq




Thouq the magazine that transformed into a website has now extended into opening a tiny concept store at Souq Al-Mubarakiya in Kuwait City

My friend and I spent approximately one hour trying to find the place, we were about to give up when we realized that there is one mosque only in the souq that the store could be located next to based on the  map provided 





Basically the store is concentrated more on men clothing and accessories, which is what the website is focusing on right now. I had the pleasure to meet with the team behind the place, Bader Al-Hujailan and Ahmad Al-Ghanim. 

Me Blogging had some photography done specially for Thouq Magazine, but the images weren't published for some reason, so I was asking Bader if its ok to publish them here on the blog? and I got the approval , yaaay enshalla you will be seeing them soon. It was taken long time ago so I'm sure the clothing will look boring as they are from last winter 2012.


Ahmad Al-Ghanim is the person creator of the amazing pop art framed posters, you could check his work on instagram click here. I was so happy to hear that he had sold most of the work that was displayed on the opening night. We all love your work hanged now we want to wear it. I want Pajamas, every time I see a person creating beautiful images I always suggest this :p still waiting for someone to go for it and create fancy pajamas. ok,  we will call them comfy clothes if it makes you feel better, home wear :) haa shraykom ? anyways something that looks good and that I could wear it at home



This is where Thouq is located
