What we know so far?!?!

September 23, 2007 at 6:01 pm (academic, Expensive Items, News, Photohraphy) (, , )

This picture amazed me. The universe that we live in had been investigated and researched for more than 100 years and still we are not 100% accurate about it’s sercrets. Every year, a scientist would announce to the world, his/her discovery of a new star/planet which is hard to imagine, considering that we only managed to visit the moon. This picture holds all the planets that have been discovered so far. The picture’s link.

This big universe is so beautiful, It will be such a pleasure to be able to visit these planets one day and meditate, think and indulge in Allah’s Gracious creations !!!

Media Rants…

Oh Brit.. I have never been a fan of your music but I wanted you to successed. Your roller-coaster life is depressing and as a gentle human being (That’s me.. Ahem), I wish happiness for everybody and that includes you. It’s sad how a young artist who’s been in the business for more than 5 years, always on top to get to this low point of her life & career. You control your own life but you are lost, can’t guide yourself and as a result… A wreck who I hope that would be saved ..(One Day )….

Arni …In Kuwait

August 14, 2007 at 12:13 pm (Kuwait, News)

 

Yes.. Arnold Schwarzenegger himself is visiting Kuwait, reported Arabtimes today

No, He’s not here to star in a movie, nor directing a movie. I doubt that Kuwait will ever be a hollywood destination. (Sigh!!)

 .. He’s visiting Kuwait in an official trip as the Governor of California. He is scheduled to meet the directors’ board of Kuwait Cahmper of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) and several businessmen. Why would he come for this ? What did the private sector did to Kuwait? Most of the Kuwaiti businessmen invesments are aborad …!!! Did I mention that a number of businessmen from California are palning to accompany the Governor … As Victoria Backham says .. it’s Major, expect to read about deals…

No date had been announced for his arrival …

Bottom First

August 10, 2007 at 6:51 am (Humor, Kuwait, News)

 

No, The picture wasn’t photoshopped. In London, builders who were hired to demolish this building, decided to start from the bottom (Ground +Lower floors), as you can see from the above picture. It’s amazing how the demolishing site didn’t affect the surrounding area, and everybody seem not bothered/not interested with the building and the way it was demolished===>Check the guy in the picture ^_^…

If that location was not London… but Kuwait!! Do you think that we would have smooth traffic without accidents for 1 month in one of our busiest streets? I doubt that !!!>_<

Prepare to be Frightened!

August 9, 2007 at 8:46 am (Entertainment, Movies, News)

Although I’m a fan of horror movies, I can’t say the same about the ‘Saw’ Franchise… I love all their posters and the new ones that were released recently did not disappoint me. For ‘Saw’ Fans…Soon, you will be re-united with a new ‘Jigsaw’ Story. The story is a continuation of ‘Saw III’ storyline’, reported by a number of entertainment websites (Not for me then, as I haven’t seen any of the saw Sequels .. It is set for a release date of 26/10/07…

The first one on the left is my Favourite:

Terror threat level reduced in the UK

July 4, 2007 at 9:11 pm (Manchester, News, Travel)

Msn.co.uk reported that the national (UK) threat level have been scaled down from critical to severe. Good news for anyone travelling from and to the UK.

Good news that would make travelling easier and smoother. Hopefully the situation would not change for the time being as it’s the summer season. We don’t want new alerts every single week.

Concert For Diana; Sunday 1/07/07

July 2, 2007 at 9:12 pm (Entertainment, News)

I heard a lot about this concert … A big concert in a stadium with a history like Wimbly in Princess Diana’s honour would generate a lot of attention and I, for sure, would not miss it. When Diana was alive, I was so into her, reading what’s written about her in the newspapers, following everything and anything with Diana’s name on it. I’m not like that now, but I know how media made me crave for Diana and It did a very good job. When Diana died back in 1997, I asked my dad who was in business trip to the UK by September for anything but it had to be about Diana. I didn’t care what it is, I just wanted something with Diana’s picture on it. That was Diana’s magic 10 years ago on a 14 years old girl.

10 Years later, I still admire her, but do I think of her the same way I thought of her 10 years ago? I don’t think so. She made courageous movements but also stupid mistakes. She was the princess of the hearts but she deceived the closest people to her. She was a human after all and I can’t judge her based on stories and newspaper clippings.

 Back to the concert. I couldn’t go for 2 reasons.. The first; the unpredictable weather and secondly I didn’t want to go to a concert where I don’t know half of the people who are going to sing there. I caught a glimpse of it on TV though and I was surprised that the stadium was not full. It is a concert arranged by her sons and they attended the event , so I expected roaring, screaming and buzzing. 

I hope that they managed to raise a good amount of money for the charities.
