Latest Shisha Order Thread

Question

Well I figured that I would start my own thread on this for two reason. 1. to get everybody talking about what they ordered recently, and 2. Because I changed my order from hookahset.com to medwakh.com.

I needed to order coals so I I figured I would try new stuff. I placed an order at Medwakh.com for a kilo of coco Jamra's, a tin each of Othmani baklava, Turkish coffee and double apple because I'm still searching for that great double apple that tastes strongly like star anise, but not like black licorice. I know it's out there because that was my first shisha, but they don't sell it here in the states. Anyway I digress.

The Good:

Placing the order with medwakh.com was awesome and when you click on their link to facebook, a 10% discount gets automatically added to your cart.

They also carry Nirvana brand Shisha which is good to know for when I'm ready to try that very strong tobacco.

Their shipping is very reasonable, like with social smoke, it's only $6.95 for everything that I added to my cart. Which brings me to:

The Bad:

I tried placing an order with hookahset.com yesterday and the shipping said $6.95. GREAT!!! I placed my order for the coco mazaya, a tin of platinum Bahrain apple Tangiers cane mint and about 5 other Al Fakher flavors to try.

Well, they don't have the Tangiers cane mint, so I changed it to Maraschino Cherry but they also wanted to charge me $23.50 for shipping and the order was only $35.

The kicker is that they are in Jersey and so am I. So I canceled the order, told them to go F&^% themselves an placed the order with Medwakh.com

The Ugly:

I was really looking forward to trying the coco mazaya, but it seems I'm not going to be able to try them right now until I find a reputable company to order from that does NOT charge an arm and a leg for shipping.

I guess this is what happens to me when I try to deviate from Social Smoke. They are a great company to order from, no hassles, shipping is always $5.95 and it's free with an order of $75 or more. They have great flavors and their personal hand holding is great, specially for somebody like me that still considers himself a newbie.

So where can I order the coco mazaya from? Where do you guys order from? Everybody else charges about $12 for shipping but I don't need to place a large order right now, so it's not worth it for me to pay that much for shipping.

Nice order.
Haze is hit and miss. I've tried a few flavors but it was not mind blowing. However there are people that swear by that brand. I only remember liking their bubble gum one.

Not really a shisha order as such, but hookah related, and I am excited, so screw it.

Picked up my delivery from reception during lunch.

For me:

KM Pharonie Yellow 33inch

Khaloud Samsaris Bowl

Minzari Crown

Heba Diffuser

KM Hookah Carry Bag

 

For a friend

Al Fakher Model 2 30 inch hookah

Khaloud Lotus

Khaloud Samsaris Bowl

Minzari Crown

 

We will be testing the new stuff tonight. I can finally put my damaged AF Model 1 into retirement for a bit.

Random question, but just throwing it out there in case anyone has suggestions: does anyone know of an online retailer that one could order from in Guatemala?

Possibly a European retailer. Maybe 5starhookah.com but I can't condone their service or lack thereof

I missed out. Had family staying over and forgot about the sale. When I went back to try and place my order the coupon was no longer valid. At least I spent quality time wth my nephews and sisters that stay over for the long weekend

I ordered 2 kilos of nakhla DA, got a shika sandstorm bowl to try out using it as a DA only bowl and see how it goes, and some cleaning brushes and purge balls. I wanted the leather km hose as well but H-S didn't have it and I didn't want to make a second order on another site, hence why I went with the sandstorm bowl for an unglazed. However that bowl really should be fine

Meh. Now I'm just pissy. The gf says I'm being a grinch this year because I missed out on a few sales so she got me this.

I don't care. I'm pissy and I can't wait for the holidays to be done and over with.

Hey its alright, the holidays can be really hectic and sometimes its tough to get into the spirit, I get ya. Also, for the most part I loved the glazed version being the oblivion, in hindsight I think the bowl I had was a lemon, its kind of hard for me to articulate why it was but I can say that with the way the glazing and clay looked it made sense as to why it chipped so bad, but up until that point that bowl was a monster

@Ecko_1. You got pics, review, and info on the KM hookah bag? I've had a few different hookah specialty bags and they have all sucked with the exception of Burn Bag, buuut I only found two on eBay and snatched them both up and can't even order them from the company in Israel via google translate. They never responded.

Yeah I don't know why but I'm enjoying my unglazed inserts for my hydra bowls. It's fun to smoke out of them and seeing them glaze with use over time. I now have 9 inserts for the bowl. Did I mention how much I love that thing? I own two now lol.

I almost considered the hydra bowl but I only really wanted an unglazed for DA. But I'm glad you're really enjoying it, the concept of that bowl is really cool.

Yeah with this bowl and the fake lotus I call the whole setup a lazy man's bowl. Load it, top it and smoke.
The best part is that I can setup another insert and as soon as I'm done with the first bowl just squeeze out the smoked insert and load the second one and continue smoking.
This bowl is the best invention ever.
