What we know so far?!?!

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 )….

Thailand: Central World…2

September 6, 2007 at 10:12 pm (Personal, Photohraphy, Travel)

Central World is a big shopping complex that is larger than ‘The Avenues’. The managing company knows how to use the mall space to showcase galleries,exhibition and sometimes concerts and dance shows; A simple idea that our friends here in Kuwait might not be able to imitate.

The World’s Tallest Chocolate Tower : Yummy

 

Three Naked Men: Best angle without my little cousins. It’s built from Ceramics and it is located in fornt of ‘The Pizza Comany’. The kids loved,pictures taken of them with the men. Elementry school girls were super excited and they didn’t stopped taking pictures with their phone.

 

The Kermiln in Russia. One of the highlights of the mall is the new wonders of the world and the nominees of the competition. In every corner you see landmarks of different countries which is a very good idea to occupy the vast space.

 

Another famous landmark: The Eiffel Tower.

 

The Cute Doll as a mascot of the japanese resturant: Sakura…

 

Additional Landmark: The Great Wall of China, Had to be there but It was such a hard search to find it. We are talking about Seven Floors !!!!

 

Two Striking elevators that caught my eyes… Sponsered by Sony Ericsson?!?!

 

After a long day, who would refuse a coffee from the ‘Black Canyon Coffee’ .. Nothing special but in some branches, they serve soups and pasta, like a proper diner. Don’t miss the Seafood Tom Yum soup with  noodels ==> So yummy with the mazing ginger flavour …hmmm

 

Next: The Asian Senses.. A gorgeous showcase of thai culture and tradition.. Found in Central World.. Fifth Floor…

Thailand: Hectic Street Life…(1)

September 5, 2007 at 7:52 pm (Personal, Photohraphy, Travel)

 

Thailand… The Land of elephants… Siam as it was known so many decads ago. I was interested when my uncle mentioned Thai-Land. I like visiting new places and I make sure that I aknowledge any country’s culture and tradition when I visit new places. Thailand was no exception. I tried my best but Bangkok did not allow me. Well, my family, whome I travelled with, were not excited about my recommendations.. They preferred shopping which wasn’t my reason to visit Thailand.

Even if they complied with my suggestions, There was something missing. Thailand wasn’t that magical beautiful Country that I thought I will be enchanted by. I think Bangkok is to be blamed. It is busier than London (Which I hate and can’t stand) so you can imagine my rolling eyes when my plane landed.^_^

Street Shopping stalls that sells various items; Cloths (Men,women & Children’s), Kitchen accessories, Jwellery, bags, shoes, watches, sunglasses, Home accessories, plants and so many other things are everywhere. You can’t find street stalls whithout noticing the food stalls where food ‘Chicken,beef, fish and pork’ is grilled. Insects are popular among tourists. The pavements are crowded as a result, if you want to reach Point A to B, you ought to walk on the street itself which is dangerous and I’m not descriping passing through a street to the other side. It’s a whole another story. ^_^

It is very polluted In Bangkok which is a shame. Diesel is heavily used and Colourful taxies are evrywhere and all the streets are in a ‘Rush-Hour’ state 24/7. Pavements are smelly; Food stalls re-use the oils they used in cooking constatntly thoughout the day, then they spilled on the pavements after midnight.. Disgusting, I have to inspects my trousers after a day-out in Bangkok streets in a daily basis.

Stray Dogs are everywhere and surprisingly they are quiet in spite of their obvious hunger.. Very sad. Women with infants on their laps begging for money are found on every street and bridge; One scene that I can’t stand and I had to see daily through out my vacation. Old blind men playing music and mutilated men begging for money. These pictures will be engraved in my memory. >_<

The Weather: Dry, Humid + very hot.. It rained the last few days before our departure which helped shifting our mood.

Temples are decorated with flowers and elephants statues in streets. People worship in silence while sandlewood sticks are burnt.

So many pictures and less writing about places that I visited and exhibitions I came across is next to come … ^_^
