Muji Has Everything

Bead sofa

I have always used MUJI products, even before they opened in Kuwait. I used to go to the store every year in London to get everything I need. Now, I don’t need to! Their flagship store in Avenues has everything. I recently bought one of their carpets for my room. I have been searching for months for the perfect size, color and material. I found all that in MUJI. I also got bed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers that were extremely soft and light weight.

The following was written as part of an email sent to me from MUJI.

Known for its skillful fusion of innovation and practicality in over a range of 3000 products, the retail import from Japan is known for bringing in a notion of simplicity and a sense of calm in every day’s life. Ever wondered how? MUJI’s appeal, for those who are unfamiliar with the brand, is its philosophy of “no brand quality goods”—products that are simple in design and unadorned with labels. MUJI revels in ingenuity. Almost all of MUJI products are natural yet delightful, compact yet functional, non-descriptive and yet exceptionally Japanese…

Some of MUJI’s products are a ‘must-have’ for all as they are known for their unique Japanese creativity and functionality. For instance, the famous shrink-wrap, which is packaged as small cubes, is ideal for traveling and hardly takes space in your luggage, and the multi-cape can be worn in 14 different ways, which is perfect to adjust to our lifestyle!

Another best-seller is the MUJI travel neck cushion. MUJI offers you two options, the first one made with 0.5mm styrofoam beads, which provides you with the ultimate comfort when traveling, whether you are in the airport, on the plane, or in the car. The other version is a smart, easy to carry and lightweight cushion foldable into its own pocket-sized travel pouch. Both of them are available in a large variety of colors.

When it comes to storage tricks, no one can beat MUJI as the brand offers semi-transparent storage options that are packable, stackable and collapsible to name some of them the Acrylic makeup boxes or the PP storage boxes are the top products sales of MUJI all over the world.

The Avenues Phase 3

From experience, there is one thing that Kuwait does best: food. When franchises open up in Kuwait, they usually taste better than they do in the countries they originally came from. There have been countless times where I’d try a restaurant abroad and compare it to my tasting experience in Kuwait. Kuwait always wins me over. When it comes to food, we’re excellent, but when it comes to retail, we’re not as experienced. Shops always seem to be out of stock and the available items are usually a couple of months old. From my personal experience, I bought a couple of shirts from a clothing store in London (whose name I won’t mention). This same store is also found in Kuwait. When I came back to Kuwait, the shirts weren’t sold there. Three months later…the shirts were there, out of fashion and nowhere near the realm of trending fashion fads. Once again, I was disappointed.

Enough with that. SO, I haven’t been to the newly opened phase at The Avenues Mall. Judging from the innumerable photos on Instagram, the place looks beyond amazing. I was only able to view the new project from the exterior just a few days ago. It seems like there are a lot of new restaurants opened there, which I really hope are going to give Kuwait an all-new and extraordinary experience. Aside from the restaurants, there are new RETAIL stores. Hallelujah. It’s about time. Let’s just hope they don’t get ruined and continue to hold their glamorous fashionable touches.

P.S.: This means: less coincidences where people would be wearing the EXACT same outfits.

Awk-waaaaaaard.

This is such a cool idea! I haven’t seen these type of offers in Kuwait before. I’ve seen a lot of this stuff in Dubai and it’s really useful. It helps make a better shopping experience!

Shake Shack Kuwait Opening In July

I heard rumors from a friend that Shake Shack will be opening in July. It’s going to located in Avenues Phase 1 (it’s where PQ used to be). I really hope that the rumor is true! But its too bad I won’t be in Kuwait at that time. I really want to try their burger. It already opened up in Dubai and people who have tried it say its amazing.

Don’t you think that there’s too many burger places now? Don’t they all kind of taste the same? Only difference is the type of sauce they use. I really do hope that Shake Shack would be worth the wait and not just like any burger place we have here.

Taco Bell’s Kuwaiti Ad

I’m sure everyone by now has encountered the annoying Taco Bell advertisement. Nearly every website I visit, has it. I think it already opened in Kuwait, but I really don’t see the need to have that many ads. Whats so annoying about that ad is that it rings a bell every few minutes.

Anyways, this morning my sister had her bedroom window open all day long. Every time she entered her room she hears a church bell. She kept on complaining. Problem is there are no churches near our house. My mom kept on telling her that it’s probably our neighbors wind chimes. Weird thing is, if our neighbors had wind chimes that means I would have heard the sound in my room too (our rooms are next to each other). Then my sister came to a conclusion that the sound was coming from the roof of our house. She goes up there and finds nothing and no sound of any bell. I go to her room to see if I can help. The sound was really loud. I got close to her laptop and it was pretty clear that the sound was coming from it. I quickly tell her and she doesn’t believe me! She quickly turns it off, just in case. A few minutes later, we hear the sound again… Just kidding. The sound had stopped. Though later I remembered that she had the Cinescape website on. Taco bell’s ad must have been there. After my sister realized that, she got pretty mad at Taco Bell. I don’t think she’ll ever go there. Poor thing she really had a rough day.

Stealing Cigars in Avenues

Last night, I went to avenues and I passed by cig-a-book. I noticed a group of guys that the cashier was talking too. He seemed very frustrated and the guys started leaving. As I was paying, the cashier’s expressions suddenly changed. I turn my head to where he was looking at and saw one of the guys from earlier taking out a cigar from the cupboard. The cashier immediately goes over to him and the stealer got nervous, so he started apologizing quickly. He looked no older than 16. He returns the cigar in its place and leaves the shop.

All this happened in front of me and I was shocked that the employee handled the situation that way. He could have at least called the security in Avenues, so they can deal with him. Even if he’s a minor, his parents should be informed, so they’d keep a closer eye on their son. If that happened somewhere other than Kuwait, that boy would have been in so much trouble.

That’s the cigar cupboard he was trying to steal from!
