A couple of weeks ago Al Ghanim held a huge event at the ice skating rink to celebrate their newest collaboration with Honda. The event featured many shows from traditional Kuwaiti performers to Japanese drummers to visual symphonies -my favorite part- to laser shows. Plus a demo by Honda’s most advanced robot Asimo. And a great surprise performance by hussain Al Jasmi at the end.

Here are the photos..

A Trip To The Kuwait Planetarium

Whenever I passed by the Kuwait National Museum and saw that weird silver sphere I wondered what it was. So after asking around and finding out it’s the Planetarium I stopped by to see what it’s all about.

Some of the people I asked thought the planetarium was shut down after being destroyed during the Iraqi invasion and they weren’t really too far from the truth. Even though the place is fully operating it still looked like it haven’t had any maintenance since the 90’s. The museum itself was a ghost house. Only a couple of security guards and the ticketing person were the only other people around. If you’re planning on going you might as well go during day light.

The planetarium has 2 main areas: The dome where the show takes place, and a little museum. The pretty painted walkway above connects the two.

Inside, The top part of the dome is actually the screen and it goes all around in a 360 angle. But the movie showing only occupied half of the screen.  The chairs are tilted back so you can watch comfortably.

The movie was on the boring side. They can do much better with the movie choices.

After the show was over I got the chance to take better photos..

This is the coolest part, the center circle is designed to echo your voice as soon as you cross the line into the circle, you cross the line back out and the echo stops right away.

Fahad Al-Ibrahim sent over 2 sets of his new creation: AlSoor card game, and I already mentioned before that this is the first Kuwaiti card game with a Kuwaiti concept, not translated from any other game.

Definitely seems like a fun game. I haven’t gotten the chance to play it yet and waiting for the weekend for some free time to try it out.

The game is being sold at EZGRT booth in P2BK expo for 10 KD.
