TaniaPlayTania Play is a new entertainment play organized by Senyar Marketing & Branding Co. Week ago, I got an invitation to attend the Tania Play. In few words, Tania Play revolves about the Chinese emperor’s daughter stand in the greedy and hate to defend their homeland. The play was good but more useful for kids. Everything well organized and directed. I liked the theme, decorations and way of managing the stage.

EMallAround two weeks ago, I got a special invitation tour with group of bloggers at eMall Kuwait. The eMall is first social department store in Kuwait owned by Eureka Group. Inside the mall their are different departments that targets all of population. In the group floor you can find Eureka Electronic Store, cafes and restaurants. Such as Zaatar Wa Zeeit, eClub, Chocolate Cuisine, Cafe Supreme, Nestle Cafe, Chiquita Fruit Bar and Koshari Bites.

GamePlayMoving on the first floor you can find a large eGame Play Centre were you can keep your kids playing while you are shopping around the mall. Additionally, the first floor hosts some of Eureka’s electronics departments.

eFashionTowards the second floor you can huge multi-brands such as A&F, Hollister, Lacoste, Tommy, Nike, Puma and more. According to the general manager of the mall “All brands are original and is supplied directly from the suppliers”. I went through some of the items and compared them to US. Actually their are almost similar and no extra dinars are added on.

In the last floor their will be health centre (gym) coming on early this year. We ended our tour by having some dinner at the eSocial Cafe that opened in couple of months ago, where all the tables are functioned with touch screen were could order, play games and draw. I will post more about eSocial Cafe soon.
