Your A OK



Today I attended an event that was organized by Nuqat at Al-Hamra Tower in the 55th floor to launch the new website YourAOK.com, the website brings you all talents , design firms and product suppliers in one place, its something similar to Behance but only for the Middle East and North Africa . Its away of connecting the creative industry altogether.




Also Nuqat announced that their annual creative conference will be on the 7 - 12 of November 2013 in Al-Americani . Follow their blog for more info click here

The event is not over, they will hosting a comedy show with Shaikha AlKhaldi, The Improvengers (both from Kuwait), and Moayad AlNefaei (from Saudi Arabia) . so if you are interested to attend there are 30 tickets left, they are using Tap to book tickets, I'm not sure how that works, but you could click here and learn how.

Next Payment






Every time I get introduced to new Startups at startupQ8 event I get so excited and motivated to learn more on how to run our business.



Today we get to hear from Sayed Al-Mohri the co-founder of Next, I totally liked the idea of being able to pay a company or an individual using my phone.


I Immediately thought of Ibrah (our hand made accessories) once they explained how it works

Watch the video to understand what I'm talking about





that means we could send invoices to our customers and they pay us through this application. Next will only charge us 2.5% for each transaction  The only drawback that our customers outside Kuwait can't use the application, as they need to have a Civil ID to register and create an account, and only in Kuwait we have this number, But I learned from the founders that they are work on this issue and they are targeting global markets.

Search in AppStore for (NextPay) and download the application on iPhone, also available on android

Will give it a try tomorrow and see how it works

I'm traveling soon ... Help Me

Traveling 1



One of my readers from Dubai asked me to suggest some outfits for her as she is traveling to Geneva this summer and she don't know what to wear, I think because they usally wear Abaya, so they don't normaly have outfits with long sleevs when they are in Dubai

She has a similar request to the Qatari girl from last year, who waers Hijab and don't know what to wear abroad, see posts below

Old post # 1

Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel


Royal Suite - Living Room

Last night we were invited to the newly opened Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel for a bloggers event, were they will take us into a tour to see some of the hotel’s rooms and restaurants. The event starts at 7:00 pm and of course I was an hour late, I’m glad it wasn’t just me, The side talk blog was late too :p so the tour was basically for 3, me my sister and the side talk.



They greeted us at the entrance and then took us first to see the Royal Suite on the 4th floor. It has a living room, 3 bedrooms, dining area and a Diwaniya. I found the bedrooms along with their bathrooms to be rather small for a Royal suite, I expected them to be huge. The living room and the dining area were fine in terms of size, but the venetian decor, or let me say the Burj Al-Arab décor is totally not my style.

Deluxe room

Afterward we went to the Deluxe Room, I was happy to see that it was a bit modern and much more specious than the Royal Suite master bedroom, even the bathroom has more space. Average rate 80KD per night.


Deluxe room


Notice the little TV in the middle of the bathroom mirror?


The hotel has around 400 rooms and 12 villas, and I was surprised to learn that a whole floor was already occupied, and 3 villas are already booked for a year.



After the Deluxe Room we went to the residential area, it’s the apartment type, where you have a living room, a small dining area, a kitchenette, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. That was nice, it has all you need in an apartment. Ohh yah and a tiny room with a desk as a working area.
