Back when ilulz was a Photoshop Holic

Believe it or not, I was a photoshop holic back when I was at school. I used to spend my whole summer in front of Photoshop trying to apply new designs, creating new effects and crazy ideas. I was on my way to master photoshop and know more things about it. But then got occupied with University and work afterwards.

Today I am going to share with you some of my old designs (simple designs yet crazy ones) just for the fun sake.

This one was in school "in Physics class to be specific :p"


Most of the below designs are old between 2001 - 2004 (no clue what I was thinking of :p) when I was 100% addicted to our old forum (Montada)













I couldn't find the rest of the designs (including flash designs), once I find it I will upload it for sure. Lol it's so funny looking at those old designs :D "and I was thinking I am excellent and no one can beat me, huh"

Coffee Cup Sketches

Today at work, my coworkers went to Udupi restaurant (the one I wrote about earlier, read about it here) and asked me if I want anything. Of course I asked for the filter coffee :D 

However, when I was drinking the coffee I imagined a girl trying to reach the coffee to have one sip of it "wild imagination, huh :p" and I sketched this girl on the Styrofoam cup while it was actually full of coffee!


It was pretty difficult to draw on it while it's full of hot coffee :p And then, after the second cup was empty I sketched this.



I guess I will start sketching on cups from now on :p 
What do you think ! 



So how would you wake up your friends


One of the funniest videos I have ever seen. Credits goes to "Unknown" editor, because I really don't know who did this video and was able to combine all those pranks in one. Therefore, I have uploaded this video on ilulz Youtube Channel here.

To watch the video, you can visit this link, or watch it below.


After you watch the video, be honest and tell me. Would you really try any of those pranks with your friends? If yes, which one would you chose ?

Cheers :D

ELSOOR Game, such a brilliant game !


Since I was lazy enough to check my mailbox folders, I have missed the opportunity to try Elsoor game before officially being released. I was very upset because I've missed it, but then Fahad (the mastermind behind this amazing game) was kind enough to send me my own package :D So, I consider this as another amazing Birthday gift (Lucky Me).

After I have seen the actual cards, I was really impressed with the graphics. It's very simple and nice, need a little bit of improvement tho, like high quality printing (but overall, I LOVE IT). The first impression/flash-back I got was monopoly, card games and UNO. And since I love them all, I couldn't wait to try it out :)

 

"I am so in love with this soldier, Yu2bshni :p"

However, ELSOOR game is totally different than any other cards game or monopoly game. It is a strategic/war game where you will need to defend yourself and attack others. It's all about protecting your Soor from collapsing or being stolen by other players. The instructions manual that comes along with the game is a bit hard to understand. I tried to play the game alone, but it's not really fun to play it alone :D Well, I only have 3 nieces which can barely talk, so I don't think they can understand me when I say "it's your turn" :p


 

The game box contains the following:

1. The Troops (Soldiers)
Where you can choose one of the following moves:
- Deploy one troop card to one of your soors.
- Move troops from one soor to another.
- Attach your opponent soor.
2. ELSOOR (Walls)
Is what actually you need to protect or steel from others.
3. Action Cards.
That are really handy when it comes to attacking others.

Since I am planning to make a play group, I can't really explain more about this game; because I need to try it out and understand it better. So you better wait for a second post about ELSOOR Game Strategy. Meanwhile, you can check ELSOOR website here for more details about this game. Also, you can order your own cards from the same website.

And, you can follow them on twitter and Instagram @elsoorgame to stay in touch and be posted about any updates pertaining this game.

It's a MUST TRY people !

Congratulations @OFK360 for being "The Best Restaurant" @Mall360

b+f Open Flame Kitchen is an upscale designer restaurant concept focused on serving high-end food for customers. Everybody knows b+f Open Flame Kitchen since it's one of the best in Kuwait !


Today March 19, b+f Open Flame Kitchen won "The Best Restaurant" award in 360 Mall for the year 2012. Of course this is something normal for a very big restaurant which is doing excellent job in the market, because simply put, they serve the best. I have never met anyone who tried OFK and said something bad about it!





Congratulations OFK for being The Best Restaurant in 360 Mall for the year 2012!
You deserve it :)




Galaxy S4 event accidentally hints for the new Galaxy Note 3

When Samsung was launching the new Galaxy S4, they have announced a new Game Pad that is easy-to-go, easy-to-play on the go. 



But then, in the description they have mentioned that this new Game Pad accessory can fit a device with a 6.3-inch screen. And as far as we all know, Samsung doesn't have a phone screen that big. So maybe this announcement is a hint for the new Galaxy note 3! And maybe Samsung accidentally gave us this hint or maybe they are playing roughly this time by giving us this hint on purpose! Who knows.

Google celebrates my Birthday :D No kidding :p

Today is my birthday and no matter what I say, I cannot describe how much blessed I am! For having all my family and friends in my life. Family is not necessarily about family members only, but it could be a friend, a co-worker or a colleague that can actually be considered as a family member.

If you have happy family then you are lucky. Feel grateful that you were blessed with these special ones in your life.

Then again, today Google is celebrating my birthday. Yes it is celebrating my birthday, not because I am a celebrity or something, but because I am a star :-p haha Just Kidding. I bet it's because I was logged in when I opened Google website. But it's really such a nice touch, thank you Google <3


Thank you all for being a part of my life. And thank you for making my day <3
With Love.

Samsung Galaxy S4, what do you think ?

I was waiting for March 14 anxiously just to see what Samsung is featuring this time, I even marked my calendar at work, home and my phone just to make sure I wont miss the event! But I did miss it eventually :/ As I said before, if it was an Apple product, I would've been the first in line just to know what's going on.

However, I have been googling around to check out Galaxy S4 features and reviews for those who actually have seen it. And here is what I have found.


The design is pretty disappointing because it's similar to Galaxy S3, no difference at all except that it's slightly taller, slimmer, lighter in weight and the 5-inch display fits the design properly. Galaxy S4 will be available in two colors: black mist and white frost, and is made entirely of polycarbonate. Unlike what was expected from the video teaser [Part 2]! Maybe they will launch different colors later.

Main Features:
- The 5-inch screen is a full HD 1080p display. It is said that the screen would give you a great experience when looking at images, videos and when playing games.

- It comes with 2 GB of RAM.

- 1.9 GHz quad-core processor or 1.6 GHz octa-core (eight core) processor. Samsung representatives said that different markets will get different processors.

- Supports 4G LTE.

- An IR-blaster built in which allows you to change your TV channels right from your phone. 

- A 2,600mAH battery.

- 13 megapixel rear-facing camera, and 2 megapixel forward-facing camera. All in all, the phone has 12 different shooting mood. One impressive feature is the DualShot, which allows you to take a photo with both the front and the rear camera at the same time and then combine the two together in one single photo.

- Android OS, v 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean).

- Storage: 16/32/64 GB with a microSD up to 64 GB.

- Smart Pause feature, which allows you to control the screen with your eyes. If you were watching a video and you moved your eyes away the video will stop, until you direct your eyes again to the screen. 

- Group Play feature, enables you to share music, photos and games with people around you.

- Air View feature lets you hover your fingers over an email, S Planner, or image gallery to view a larger preview of content before selecting it. It also allows you to change a song, scroll through a web page, or answer a call by just waving your hand. 

- A FitBit feature that will keep a track of your health, sleep patterns and all.

- S Translate feature helps you to translate your text-to-speech and speech-to-text into 9 different languages.

The device will be launched in April end, but it's not said which day, or country. So I assume that the device will be available in Kuwait probably in May or June.

I don't know if you have noticed, but in every S4 review comment box you will find Samsung fans mentioning iPhone 5. I just want to say one word to you S fans, you are actually promoting iPhone 5 when you are mentioning it in every single comment. How is that ? Well, people would want to use or see that phone you are talking about. And once you use an iPhone, you will become addicted ;-) So thanks in advance for promoting iPhone 5 :-p
Honestly, I am not very impressed with the Galaxy S4 and will not buy it or want to have it, unless if it was gifted to me "My Birthday is this Sunday btw lol :-p"

Do I have a problem with Samsung? No, but I don't like their theme and OS, it's really annoying and not very creative. But they have great features that I would want to have in my phone. And maybe, and I say MAYBE after I see or use Galaxy S4 I might change my mind, who knows! "I like Galaxy note 2, so don't get me wrong"

Yet again, I hope the next iPhone is going to be much better :-D And yes I am an apple fan.

Elissa Kim Kardashian Style !

Today I reached home late and I was looking at the TV and saw one video clip of Elissa called "As3ad Wa7da" and I was really shocked of the way she looked like ! I know there is something different in her face but I really can't tell what is it. Is it her cheeks, her lips, her eyebrows or she just gained weight! Really no idea.


Or was she just copying Kim Kardashian look ! If yes, then I am sorry to tell you Elissa, but you have done an awful job ! You used to look much better & this style is really not urs :/

This is Elissa Kim Kardashian style


And this is original Kim Kardashian style 


Not to mention that the video clip idea was really silly and I have no idea how you have agreed on doing it :/

Netflix tattoo gives its holder a one year free subscription


Yes, a man who just recently got a Netlfix tattoo got a one year free subscription. On March 8, Netflix offered one year free subscription to one of their fans right after he posted a photo of his tattoo on twitter.


I am sure everybody will start following him and he will be known for ever as "the Netflix Tattoo Guy!" It's quiet impressive how Netflix reacted with their fan immediately. He is one lucky guy !

I wonder if I get an Apple or Mac tattoo, will Apple gift me a Macbook or something :-p "Just Saying"

Google doodle today goes to Douglas Adams !


Douglas Noel Adams was an English writer, humorist, and dramatist. He is best known as the author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which started life in 1978 as a BBC radio comedy, to be developed into "trilogy" of five books.

In his memory, Google decided to dedicate a doodle as a memory on his Birthday that whispers to the world: "Don't Panic."
