Duplicate Key Maker and computer programming the key in Kuwait - Locksmith

I lost my car key and unfortunately didn't have any spare key after a desperate search finally started searching for duplicate key maker. I looked in Jarida and started calling couple of them mostly arabs and sounded like syrians asking in the range of KD 30 to KD 40. ( Found out the locals call the car key as Switch ). Expensive Car's like Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, Opel, Porsche, Prado, Honda, Audi, Volvo,  higher the price.

Then I got a number of an Asian Key Maker named Faheem locksmith from my local garage and was asking for KD 25 residing in Salmiya and he explained me the whole process. After slight negotiation I agreed.

Found out he is expert in all types of Locks. You can contact this locksmith on 99614917

1) First the locksmith used his tools to unlock the car.
2) Removed the lock from the car.
3) Started making a key for the car lock manually on the spot as he carried all his tools in the car.

4) Once a manual working key is made to lock and unlock the doors, he made a moulded key one with a built in IC (Integrated Chip) for able to Switch On the ignition with the automatic key making machine he was carrying alongwith him.

Key is in process of getting programmed  for sync with the ignition. It's always better to have a spare key instead of losing the peace of mind and money.

Gulf Air is a low grade airline - Food quality sucks

I was really suprised by the chicken meal served in the Gulf Air airlines.
The chicken curry was full of onions and the desert they served was the Maamoul ( Whole wheat cookie filled with Dates paste ) - worth less then $ 0.25 .
The quanity of water served in seal cup is less then 100ml.
