Airplanes Show 25 feb 2014 at 3.30pm

Como les gustan aquí las acrobacias en el aire para demostrar su poderío y como nos gustan a nosotros las barracas o ferias (según de donde seas) para celebrar nuestros santos. Que diferentes somos, donde este la charanga, la churrería y la tasca del pueblo que se quite lo demás, jajaja  
Este martes 25 a las 3.30pm show, por parte de aviones de guerra de la armada turca(?¿?¿?¿?), sobre el área de Marina Mall. El mejor sitio para verlo...... dentro del agua... jejeje

The SkyShow by Turkish Airdorces warplanes will be on the 25th of Feb 2014 at 15:30 around Marina beaches.

Ivan Ibañez, Doctor Español especialista en Nutricion.Ejercicio Físico-Medicina Preventiva y Anti-Aging en KUWAIT

I would like to announce the arrival of our new visiting doctor, from Barcelona, Spain. Dr. Ivan Ibáñez Garcia will be visiting from February 19th - 25th.  Doctor Ivan has extensive experience in the fields of Antiaging, Regenerative, Preventative, and Sports Medicine, Rehabilitation, and Physiology. He runs his own Antiaging medical center in Barcelona the Longevity Center (www.centrolongevidad.com) and is Founding Director and Professor of the Masters in Antiaging Medicine and Longevity program at IL-3 and the University of Barcelona (www.IL3.ub.edu). He is mainly focused on the study of metabolism, fat reduction and sports performance. Dr. Ivan helps people who may have been struggling with their weight for years to reach their optimal health and wellness and maintain a healthy weight for life.

As the population in Kuwait is one of the heaviest with the highest rates of Diabetes in the world I thought your readers might be interested to know of the latest scientific methods to lose weight and restore their health. I would love a chance to introduce you to Dr. Ivan if that is something that you may be interested in. I have added a brief synopsis of his main treatments below for your perusal.

During the consultation with Dr. Ivan,  blood and body composition, hormonal and metabolic levels and nutrient utilization and other parameters such as aerobic and anaerobic thresholds are studied. A fully individualized wellness plan including sports / exercise activity, nutrition and supplements will be created for the patient to achieve optimum body composition, health and fitness levels and sports performance. It is especially important to perform these studies in patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease to design a comprehensive nutrition and exercise program that improves their quality of life and their life expectancy.



Obesity Treatment

The goal is optimal loss of body fat while maintaining muscle mass, bone density, and immune status.

Dr. Ivan Garcia is an expert in the treatment of patients who are overweight or obese. He treats both children and adults with the “Ibáñez Metabolic Method.” For successful treatment of excess weight, knowledge of the individual’s metabolism is essential. Some people metabolize or burn fats or carbohydrates better, and vice versa. For example, some people following a low fat diet may sometimes gain weight, while others lose. Since each person has a different metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, they must follow different nutritional eating plans. By studying the metabolism at rest and during exercise, an individualized nutrition and exercise plan can be created.


Optimization of Sports Performance

The goal is to enhance athletic performance and reach fitness goals safely.

This treatment is aimed at any athlete who performs physical exercise of moderate to high intensity, or any classified as elite athletes.  Tests like metabolic studies at rest and in motion, stress test, and blood studies will be performed to assess cardiovascular function, nutrient utilization, body composition, and muscle fatigue which may indicate over training. A full report with the best sports nutrition guidelines for the individual will be generated to enhance athletic performance. In case of inactivity due to injury, a specialized nutrition plan will be devised to keep metabolism, maintain muscle mass and prevent weight gain, expediting the return to training and competition.


Sport Performance Tracking and Control

The goal is ongoing monitoring of athletic performance.

This service is based on regular check-ups to monitor body composition and performance, or to modify nutritional / supplement guidelines when workout routines change or there are variations in the training objectives.

Torero SRC Churrería y Restaurante

Al fin ayer pude acercarme a probar los churros de Antonio en Torero SRC Churrería y Restaurante y puedo deciros que me encantaron. Por 5kd tienes derecho a una bandeja con churros y un chocolate. Nosotros que no sabemos compartir compramos un chocolate por persona y nos pusimos las botas.
Torero SRC esta en el nuevo centro de restaurantes ARABELLA en Al Bidaa en la planta principal a la derecha pegados a las escaleras mecánicas. Aprovecha ahora que a Antonio le quedan unos días en Kuwait para probar esta rica tradición española.

New restaurant Torero SRC Restaurant and Churrería. Yesterday I tried the churros and it was a delicious experience. 1 plate of churros and a cup of chocolate costs 5kd but we could share the chocolate and we ordered one for each... yummy.  



Y esta noche cenamos en el restaurante, eso os lo cuento mañana.

New Super HyperMarket SAVECO in 4th ring road

The new supermarket SAVECO has already opened. I´ve been there today and its a fantastic, clean and tidy place to get your groceries. Many small shops inside for juices, snacks, perfums and other foods. The vegetables and fruits are simply perfect, exhibited in beautiful wood boxes... you can find whatever you want.
All the food is so nicely displayed that for sure my next shopping will be here next week.
And one more tip, the bread and bakery, cooked food and the restaurant is supervised by an italian Chef.  We´ve read the menu of the cafeteria and sounds as music played by angels. Always missing a cup of wine :(

New Lulu Hypermarket in 6th ring road Al Dajeej

Nuevo Lulu Hypermarket en el 6º anillo en la localidad de Al Dajeej, es el número 109 de la increíble cadena de supermercados indios. A mi me encanta este supermercado, la calidad de los productos, la limpieza de este lugar (sobre todo me refiero a el que está en la 208 con la 40) Me recuerda al Corte Inglés por como cuidan el producto y el servicio. La carne y el pescado son buenísimos y la variedad de producto incluye mucho producto europeo o americano. En cuanto pueda ir a conocer este nuevo Lulu os cuento mas.

New Hypermarket in the 6th ring road located in Al Dajeej, I havent been there but I am sure I will find a moment to go and visit it as it is the biggest supermarket in Kuwait and I know the quality of food is fantastic.

When the Student is Ready the Teacher will Appear
 
There is a famous adage that ‘when the student is ready the teacher will appear’.  But come to think of it, are ‘teachers’ in one form or another not always all around us?  Could it be that we just fail to notice them?

It’s Time… to develop the humility and learn the lessons this university of life is teaching us.  We do not simply want to pass, but leave with a ‘Masters’ degree!

Share these thoughts! ‘It’s Time…’ is spreading far and wide! Feel free to forward this wisdom, but to avoid any karmic rebound, please acknowledge its source – ‘It’s Time…’ by Aruna Ladva, BK Publications London
