Websites, Apps, Numbers, and Tips to help survive the Covid-19 Corona Virus Pandemic in Kuwait

Stay safe and stay at home until the virus scare is over!
Once again, Mark at 2:48am posted an excellent list of restaurants that have Iftar specials in Kuwait: http://248am.com/mark/food/ramadan-buffets-in-kuwait-2017/#comments
Most people don't realize it, but many restaurants will deliver food to your home during the day. The best way to find them is to visit Talabat. Talabat will let you see the restaurants that deliver in your area, and you can sort by the ones that are open. Many start delivering around 3:00pm (give or take), but there are a few that start in the morning.
The other day I had a power supply for a electronic device fail. Normally this would be the end of the device, but this time I took the pwoer supply to RTC Electronics. They were able to repair the device for me and it only cost 3KD! Now my device is working again. It would have been time consuming and expensive to order a new power supply from the US. RTC saved the day.
Do you need server cabinets, cable trays, led lighting, cables, wires, tools, testers, etc? Do you like to build or repair your own electonic devices? Check out RTC at: http://www.rtc-electronics.com.kw/
There are frequent exhibitions at the Mishref Fairground, but I usually miss most of them because we don't hear about them. Today I learned that there is a Watch and Perfume exhibition from 25 October to 05 November and a Autumn market from 23 November to 3 December.
Previously we wrote about Masbagti, a new smart phone app that made laundry pick up and delivery super easy! Now there is a competitor. Klean now has apps for both iPhone and Android and promises the same type of service Masbagti offers. Klean also offers shoe care and repair! I am very happy with Masbagti, but I plan to try Klean simply because they can help with shoe care and repair.
Kuwait, where everything delivers! Gotta love it :)
Update: I had them pick up clothes and shoes today. They showed up on time during the window we selected. They then e-mailed me an order confirmation with prices. I'll let you know what I think after they drop off, but so far, so good.
Kuwait Laundry App: Masbagti
Thanks to Mark at 248am I learned about a new laundry service in Kuwait. It allows you to download an app to your phone and place all your laundry orders, track your orders, and see your order history from your phone. Bottom line, I was impressed. You can schedule your pick up and drop off times and they actually stick to the times promised. On time delivery is unheard of in Kuwait, yet they manage to do it.
Bottom line, it's a little pricey, but very convenient. The clothes came out great! Give it a try!

Ramadan Buffets in Kuwait - 2015
In recent years Mark has posted details about restaurants in Kuwait and their Iftar buffets and/or specials during Ramadan. For more information, check out his blog: http://248am.com/mark/food/ramadan-buffets-kuwait-2015/
In addition to what he has listed there, check out The Bistro at Miral Restaurant Complex in Mangaf. They have a nice Iftar special and the best shisha in Kuwait. If you go by, try the "Fire and Ice" shisha!
We also popped by Chili's at Miral the other day expecting them to have something. They did not have any specials for Iftar.
