Friendship never last forever, IT'S TRUE!

I just don't know what went wrong, it's might be me or he just found a "better" friends group?
We've been best friends for more than 14 years but not anymore, he even changed his number so I don't call him (I wouldn't call him anyway even If I had his number but he is thinking that he is the Queen Elizabeth II and I would be running after him)!

I know I DID NOTHING WRONG but I have no idea what's wrong with him, I wanted to know what went wrong exactly but not anymore since he did forget all those years of our friendship.

I used to think about him for awhile but now I belly dance on Latifa's song "Khalleek Ba'eed" (Translation: Keep Away).

If you think walking a way will make you feel better, OK then you can keep away..
If that would make you more comfortable, I will be happy for you..
But don't return few days later asking for my forgiveness, and to reconciled again!

It's typical of you to forget all about our great days together whenever we have a little problem, I swear if I walked away you will feel lonely even If you had a thousand friends around you
My dear why you are treating me this way?

Don't be patient, return and ask for my forgiveness, and to reconciled again!


P.S. I don't really love Queen Elizabeth II; I am just trying to make a point, I hope she won't sue me for using her name LOL

Happy Eid


Happy Eid
Originally uploaded by radiant guy.
`Eid al-Fitr is the day of celebration that marks the end of Ramadhan . Muslims visit family members, enjoy special meals together and wear new clothes. Children receive gifts of money from their relatives. Amusement rides for children are set up in the streets, and people watch fireworks at night.

The celebration lasts for three days (sometimes four), but if it falls in the middle of the week, shops and schools may stay closed for the entire week.

Photo was taken during a clear night with two different exposures, I post processed both of them to create the fog or mist in the top.

I am BACK but...

They told me it's will be fixed but I have to wait until December when they get spare parts from Japan!
I won't be able to take any new photos, so I'll upload old ones or maybe camera phone shots :\

MY LOST PASSION

Today I was surfing around some blogs around when I read a phrase written by a Kuwaiti girl. I've been thinking about it for awhile since I noticed that I lost many of my hobbies too because of the "computer madness/era". I used to do many things when I was younger but during the last 8+ years I had a great passion for the computer...At least I don't have to take a shower after using paint shop pro LOL

I did lose many years on silly chats and that's what I regret, I mean I don't hate chats at all but they shouldn't be the main reason for using your PC.

On the other hand I developed many computer related skills such as photography and photo editing.

My beloved, I wish my you can hear my voice; when will we meet?
Come to me
All my life and dreams belongs to you...
Come to me

It's the first time I felt lost, I even don't know whether I am still standing here or over there!
I am dieing to hear a voice telling me that I belong to you..

My feelings are above my capability and beyond my fantasy
If your heart was in the end of the longest road ever; I will walk the road until I reach the end!
My beloved, I wish you can hear my voice; when will we meet?
Come to me
All my life and dreams belongs to you...
Come to me

Tarkan's first English album!


Tarkan is a Turkish singer, he is known in the Arab world since 1999 or maybe earlier with his smash hit song "Simarik".
"Kiss Kiss" is the English version of the song released in the year 2002 and performed by Holly Valance.


I rarely listen to non Arab music...But I had to listen to Tarkan's since it's his first English album, I was curios!
Until now I listen to the full album two or three times, my first impression about it is GREAT!
The more I listen to it, the more I love it!

The song "Over" is the first song which attracted me, currently I am using it as my cellphone ringtone.
I will not write more stuff about this album now because I don't want to affect you with my choices, you have to listen to it your self and make up your mind...I AM SURE YOU'LL LOVE IT!

Make sure to check his official site http://www.tarkan-music.de/

Don't go away..


Latifa won the best middle eastern singer in the World Music Awards 2004 for that album. It's was a smash hit in the Arab world.
This song is a great example of Arab Pop Music, you can listen to Arab instruments such as Tabla along with Techno beats, she perform a short part with Arab rhythms in the song.

The song was performed in three different languages!

The first time in the year 2001 by the Greek singer "Despina Vandi", the song's name is "Ah Kardoula Mou".
In the year 2003 the song's music was recomposed and rearranged (legally) and released in Arabic language by "Latifa", the song's name is "Ma Etrohsh Ba'ed" (Don't go away).
"Havas" is the name of the Persian version, released in 2005...It's a remix of the Arabic version performed by the Persian singer "Shohreh Solati"; that one wasn't legal.

Despite it's legal or not, I think it's a great way that people around the world can share the exact passion of Music, I know it's took two years for each version to reach others and I really wish if there is a faster way so everybody can listen to the latest songs in all over the world in the exact released date.

Don't go away..

The photo above is my graphics work of Latifa performing the song in the World Music Awards 2004 also you might notice her photo with Celine Dion.
Latifa's speech was censored by the USA media when she said "My happiness remains incomplete until Iraq & Palestine are freed"!

Here is the song's video clip...VIVA YOUTUBE LOL

My Love, Don't go away

My love, I need you beside me
My love, come closer to me...Come closer

For many starry nights I’ve been living imagining you in my fantasies...
Before seeing you my precious I kept thinking of you every awaking moment


My love, while you are beside me all my life is full of love; your love is the most valuable to me.
With every night your words were on my mind, you are the life in my eyes and the world to my heart.

Dear starry nights he finally told me that I am the love of his life
SIGH

The years of my life passed before knowing you and no one has replaced you ever
All I need is your heart to be with me even for one second
It's enough for me to have you as my forever love in my heart
Love… Always stay with me and don’t go away


حبيبي...ماتروحش بعيد يا حبيبي
أنا عايزاك جنبي حبيبي
قرب من قلبي حبيبي...قرب لي كمان
ليالي أنا عشت معاك في خيالي
قبل ما أشوفك يا غالي
ولا ثانية تغيب عن بالي
يا حياتي أنا
حبيبي و أنت جنبي
الحب كله بيملى قلبي
و حبك اغلى ما ليا
ليالي على بالي
كل كلمة قلتهالي
يا دنية قلبي و عنيا
يا ليالي حبيبي قالهالي
انت عمري و أعز غالي

سنيني قبلك مرت على عيني
و لا شئ عنك يغنيني
قلبك وحده يكفيني
لو ثانية لقا
كفاية أني أشوفك جوايا
مالي قلبي و هوايا
خليك على طول ويايا
يا حبيبي بقى

I AM LEAVING...BYE


I AM LEAVING...BYE

I am going to walk until I reach the end of the universe...
I am going to disappear for a hundred years...
I will never fall for a childish love anymore...

Probably nobody cares but If you do...
I am leaving...
My life is a mess, I need to reschudle my priorities, it's could take a day, a month or a hundred years..

Until I comeback...
Keep smiling...
Stop smoking...
And spread the world with...
PEACE & LOVE

Never!

One of my very favorite songs of all times!
I think no matter how much I say that I love it, it's will never be enough to express the way I love it!
It's this kind of songs which you love everything about, Music, Lyrics, Arrangment and the singer performance.

The song released in the year 2002 (Arabic), I just found out that there is a Turkish version of it released in the year 2004...The Turkish song called "Hadi Git" and it was performed by "Seden Gürel".
It's happens a lot over her, sometimes Turkish use Arabic songs and sometimes Arabs takes Turkish music...Sometimes It's legally others not (It's was legal this time).


Song name: Benoub (Never)
Singer: Najwa Karam
Album: Tahamooni (2002)
Writer and composer: Marwan Khoury
Arranged by: Mohammed Mustafa
Translated by: Me

Never ever go away from me...
My eyes don't sleep because my beloved is coming tonight...
I wish we could find a medicine to cure my agony...
Time seems to pass at a slow pace with our date getting closer.

The evening wind as a signal of separation, It was blowing north while I sat by myself, Suddenly a warm breeze blew and reminded me of my beloved's smile!
O you sadness standing ready to stab my heart with your spears!

The night of mourning is over...
My beloved is coming back to live in (fill) my heart...
Life passes in an eye glance...
O darling, where are you? Come back to save my love!

YA LAILI [MY NIGHT]


YA LAILI [MY NIGHT]
Originally uploaded by radiant guy.
Probably you all noticed that I have a thing for night shots, moons and stars.
I am not a vampire though LOL

Ya Laili (means my night) is a widley used word in the Arab world songs, It's doesn't really refer to the night it self; I think it's refer to the emotions of the night such as sleepless, romance, silence...Etc

Check my music blog for some translated songs ;)

The day I met Cathrine Zeta Jones in the Elevator!

That was in my dreams LOL
Naaah, I went out with my sister and I saw that make up poster in the elevator, she looks amazing...I love her :">
Noticed the Henna on her shoulder?
I loved it

My worst nightmare!

They are my little nieces, they look cute only because they are wearing their cuteness mask in the photo LOL

The photo was taken by my sister and post processed by me, they were wearing those outfits (National uniform) for their school "Gerge'aan" party.
Gerge'aan could be the Islamic version of "Halloween: except children wear the national uniform instead of scary outfits..
They don't need to wear scary things, they are already are LOL

Children celebrates Gerge'aan two weeks after the beginning of the Islamic Month Ramadhan .


Note. The word "Gerge'aan" is widely used in Kuwait, other Islamic countries use different words.

EWOOOO

ATTENSION: Noses in cameras are larger than they appear!

Lately I've been in the "going blank" phase, but It's seems I am getting my mind back. I just started photo editing again (clearly I've been in the mood for that).

My brother traveled and took my digital camera with him. He own a DSLR yet he took my cheap point and shot baby :(

Anyway this photo of me was taken on 1st of June 2004 by my friend using my (very first) cameraphone (Nokia 6230i I think...Well I am not getting any younger LOL). Some parts of this photo was taken by my latest cameraphone (Sony Ericsson k800i).

This is one of my favorite shirts...There is a sad story about it (First of all you should know that I could be in love with everything including T-shirts lol)...

In the year 2004 or 2003 not sure, Dam*menopause :S) I took my laundry including a black shirt with the exact pattern on the right side of this photo above to be cleaned. The laundry was burned, they returned all my clothes without any scratch except my beloved t-shirt was burned :(
I couldn't buy similar one because that store only get very limited pieces of each design...Weeks passed and I found this shirt in the photo kinda similar to my late t-shirt.

I know it's a silly story and I wasted your time LOL
But it's a real story :D
