Moving Soon

I'm moving to my own domain as soon as I get the reply from the web hosting company. It has been two days already. It seems they don't work on weekends (Saturday and Sunday!).

At the most they should reply by tomorrow. If not, I'll have to make a few phone calls.


Transparently, News Updates.

Need more HEROES?

As my current addiction to HEROES keeps growing, I thought I'd share some of the wonderful websites that I have stumbled upon related to this wonderful TV series.

Heroes Animated Novels - Sideline stories from NBC

Heroes TV News - News about the series.

Heroes TV - Another News website (One aint enough..)

Heroes Wiki - Wondeful Wiki with great information. Also contains information regarding published spoilers and what not!

Heroes 360 Experience - Real life Heroes experience (e-mails from the heroes, phone numbers to call, websites to visit, and much more!)

9th Wonders - The Official Unofficial Fan-site for Heroes. By the creator of Heroes!

Countdown to Heroes - Official Heroes MySpace profile.

Obsession? Unlikely.

We just got back from the wonderful presentation at Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiya. There was a brief long introduction of Chopin's music and life followed by a Musical Concert with some of his music. It was beautiful.

I don't understand why some people don't listen. If the presenter says shut your mobiles, then shut them off, or put them on silent. If you are waiting for an emergency call, set it on vibrate!

It turns out Dar have events every monday! We got a copy of their schedule, it seems we'll be visiting them again :)

Search for a Song with Your Voice


Search for music by singing or humming part of a song. All you need is a microphone. makes it fun and easy to find and discover music and people. For the first time, you can use your voice to instantly connect to your favorite music, and to a community of people that share your musical interests. Listen to voices, see pictures, rate singers, send messages, buy music, and more.

I haven't tried it, but after seeing the results from my little baby, I'm not surprised this it out already.

Generation 1976-1984

What happened? I was having a conversation with my cousin the other day talking about our generation and what seemed so odd about it. Have you felt it too? I know quite a few people who were born between 1976 and 1984 who feel alienated. There seems to be a common effect on us, was it the invasion in 1990? Or the sudden technology boom? Have we been affected that much?

We seem disconnected from the generations before, and the ones after. I also talk in terms of society and what we experienced while growing up. The shows we watched on TV in our childhood are different from what they see now. The activities were much different. Video games were/are different. There is such a gap that it seems we're so old.. we're not old, it just feels that way.. very much so! Do you feel the same way..

Transparent: Political Schedule Conflict

So do I go see When The People Spoke 2 at 7:30pm at AUK or should I go to the Article 36 meet up at 7:00pm..

Why did they have to be on the same day.. :/

p.s. btw I don't like the title of this post.. each word is a negative for me..

A Traditional Lunch

The men and women gather in separate rooms (2 living rooms). Sometimes there are servants who present juice or water before the lunch starts. When lunch is ready, the men head there first and eat while the women wait a while. If there is a buffet, the men help themselves then sit on tables or on the ground where a long stretch of carpet is covered with a light plastic sheet. The women soon join in, or wait a while until some of the men have finished.

There is a lot of social activity during eating, a lot of people talk, make jokes and have seconds as well. Usually after the person is done, they thank the hosts for their kindness and wish them well, and proceed to wash up and head back to the living room. Sometimes the women eat alone, and them men alone, or sometimes they eat together but in the end they go back to their designated living rooms.

Usually sweets, desert, coffee and tea are served. Sometimes even, someone passes around offering a perfume; 3oud, mai ward (rose water), and even incense.
