Google makes it, AGAIN!

Google Talkabout: Merry Christmas, God Jul and 圣诞快乐

I always had a great respect for Google as a company, we all know about their super search engine but there are other great products which many people doesn't know about.

I am talking about gtalk (Google talk) which is an IM application...Although it might look more simple than other similar applications yet it had many great hidden features such as the translating robot which is aiming to bridge language barriers!

I did use it to translate some words and phrases from Arabic to English and reverse, it was OK.
I think that's going to be a success, love you google...You are very creative people *kisses*

You can read more about it in gtalk's official blog.

أكن كامل الإحترام لشركة غووغل, جميعنا نعرف عن موقع البحث غير أنني هنا أتكلم عن الشركة بعينها, لديهم العديد من المنتجات الغير معروفة بقدر موقع البحث.

أتكلم هنا عن جي توك او غووغل توك
Gtalk أو Google talk
و هو برنامج محادثة فوري يعتبر بسيط مقارنة ببرامج المحادثة الأخرى غير أنه يتفوق عليهم بمميزات أخرى مثل الروبوت المترجم و الذي يهدف لبناء جسر يربط بين اللغات!

قم شخصياً بتجربته بالترجمة من العربية إلى الإنجليزية و العكس و كانت النتيجة جيدة.
أعتقد أن هذا التطبيق سينجح، دائماً أحببت غووغل لأنها شركة مبدعة لا تقوم بالتقليد.

COWS COWS COWS :(


I really had no idea how valubale cows are until now, you see the co-op socitey in Kuwait decided to boycott my favorite power milk product wich I usually drink with my cup of tea at home and work because the milk company decided to increase the price, and since the co-op socity's main target is prtecting the consumer wich is the Kuwaiti citisen, they decided to boycott that milk and now I am lost :(

Imagine a cowless world, a world which I will not survive :(

انا توه أكتشفت إشكثر أحب البقر، هذا بعد ما قرر إتحاد الجمعيات الإستهلاكية مقاطعة الحليب المفضل اللي أنا أشربه مع الجاي مالي في البيت و الدوام. هالشي صار طبعاً بعد ما قررت الشركة إنها ترفع سعر الحليب و بما إن الإتحاد هدفه حماية المستهلك و اللي اهوه المواطن الكويتي، فكان قرارهم مقاطعة الشركة اللي تبيع الحليب اللي احبه و من ذاك اليوم و انا احس إني ضايع :(

تخيلوا عالم بدون البقر، عالم انا ما راح اقدر اعيش فيه :(


منك لله اللي كنت السبب

They even had copies of all of them!

I feel back stabbed and pissed off, should I upload them anyway?

P.S. Happy Eid and Merry Christams

I am going to scream place your palms on your ears

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Rayan 2007 Wain Brouh


My most recent addiction is Rayan's 2oo7 album, until now I loved more than half the album; to me that's a success :)

Rayan (ريان) has a powerful voice, I liked him when I listen to some of his songs last album, he recently released this album so I wanted to share it with all my blog's readers if there is any LOL

It's true that the intro of the title song "Wain Brouh" (Where should I go) sounds like a Turkish song called "Istanbul Istanbul Olali" by "Husnu Senlendirici" but it doesn't matter because both of them sounds amazing!

The album contains 8 songs, most favorite songs will be on the top:

1- "Ma Haram" (Is that fair?) ما حرام
2- "Athabi Merafiqni" (My torture accompanies me) عذابي مرافقني
3- "Wain Brouh" (Where should I go?) وين بروح
4- "Allah Ma'ak" (May God be with you) الله معك
5- "Bism El Hawa" (n the name of love) بإسم الهوى
6- "Ya Habeebi" (My beloved one) يا حبيبي
7- "Ha Allimak" (I will teach you) ح أعلمك
8- "Ghasban Anni" (Against my will) غصباً عني

Somiya 2007


The first time I heard Somiya was through unofficial release of a song called "Qalb O Rah" (A passing heart) قلب و راح, at the time I thought she was Sherine because her voice is very similar to Sherine's.

Later I forgot about it until one day I watched her interview on Rai TV when she was talking about one of her songs recorded twice with two different lyrics written by two different poets with the exact music and arrangment, I was curious about it so I listened to the album and I was amazed.

My top songs lists is:

1- Ghayyarni Jarhi (My wound have changed me) غيرني جرحي
2- El Ayyam (Days or Destiny) الأيام
3- Khalas Ya Demo'ei (My tears stop it) خلاص يا دموعي
4- Ana Aisha (I am living) انا عايشة
5- Qalb Wo Rah (A passing heart) قلب و راح - This song did not release officially
6- Ha A'esh Baqa (I will survive) ح اعيش بقى
7- Ham Yebakki هم يبكي
8- Laf Wo Dawaran لف و دوران
9- Baqeet Betohashni بقيت بتوحشني

Yasmin 2007 Shaklak Ha Tohshni


Many albums released recently but I didn't had a chance to review all of them, one of the albums is Yasmin's.

My favorite song of the album is "Bi Amanah" (To be honest) بأمانة NO wonder it's written by Hani Abdulkareem and composed by Walid Sa'ad :)

Songs I like of the album:

1- Bi Amanah (To be honest) بأمانة
2- Hott Nafsak Fi Makani (Be in my shoe) حط نفسك في مكاني
3- Hashofak Etha (I will see you if) ح اشوفك إذا
4- Ma De'eftish Osado (I didn't reveal my weakness to him) ما ضعفتش قصاده
5- Mish Momkin Tekon Insan (You are not human) مش ممكن تكون إنسان

EXCEED YOUR VISION!

Yeeeei finally I bought a printer :D
I was going to buy all in one EPSON printer but when I saw this one I fall in love at first sight :D
Now I can cross EPSON printer from my wish list

OK, I been a loyal fan of EPSON since 1992, when my father bought a black and white laser jet, followed by ink jet few years later and 3rd printer in 1998, this is the 4th one the only difference that I had to pay for it this time :(
Yeah I am sad but it totally worth every single Dinar and Fils I paid for it :D

I never seen any of my photos printed on a paper until today when I printed some photos of my sister from a previous photo session, I wasn't amazed at all, simply because I expected the result from EPSON again :)

I had "test drives" with other brands but they are nothing compared to EPSON specifically when you print a photo.

أخيراً شريت طابعة هيااااااااااااااااه :D
كنت ناوي أشتري طابعة ابسون الكل في واحد بس لما طاحت عيني على عين هالطابعة صار بينا حب من أول نظرة :>
الحين أقدر أمسح طابعة إبسون من قائمة أمنياتي :Pp~

شعار إبسون هو
EXCEED YOUR VISION
يعني تفوق على حاسة بصرك

أنا كنت و ما زلت معجب مخلص لطابعات إبسون من سنة 1992، من لما الوالد شرى أول طابعة و كانت ليزر جت أبيض و أسود بس، بعدها بجم سنة طابعة نافثة للحبر و وراها بسنة 1998 برنتر ثالث و هذا بالصورة رابع طابعة و الفرق بين الرابعة و اللي سبقوها إن هالمرة أنا اللي دفعت فلوسها مو الوالد :(
صج حرقت فلوس بس تسوى كل فلس دقعته :D

أنا لغاية ما شريت هالطابعة ما عمري شفت صورة من اللي صورتهم مطبوعة على ورق, و كانت أول صور طبعتها هي صورة لجلسة تصوير سويتها حق اختي ...و أنا ما ذهلتني النتيجة لسبب بسيط و هو إني توقعتها من إبسون هالمرة بعد :)

أنا جربت طابعات غير إبسون من قبل بس النتيجة ما في مجال للمقارنة بينها و بين نتائج طباعة إبسون خصوصاً عند طباعة الصور.
لمعلومات عن بنتي اليديدة شوفوا هاللنك.

Al-Qurain Martyrs Museum [Read]

I had to take some photos of "Al-Qurain Martyrs Museum" (keep reading to know what it is)...
I didn't know where they are exactly although I passed by them few times, so I asked who lived in the exact area where the Museum is...

The Museum consists of three houses located in residential area in Kuwait called "Al-Qurain", many Kuwaiti men of the Kuwaiti resistance group of "Messila" where killed by the Iraqi army on 25th of February 1991 (only one day before the liberation of Kuwait on 26th of February 1991), one of the houses was attacked intensively while the other two houses weren't really effected compared to the first house.

Back to my friend who I asked for direction to the Museum, only this week I found out that the father of my friend was killed in that house too, I already knew that he was killed by the Iraqi army but I didn't know that he was one of the men in "the Qurain Houses" I only found out this week...When I was talking to the phone with him, he told me to say Hi for his father then we both laughed...

I was thinking, well it will be very fast just snap some photos of the houses from the outside then go back home, but one of the guards saw me and asked me if I wanted to take photos from the inside I should do it now because they were closing the museum in less than ten minutes and I said OK.

Until today, I never seen "Al-Qurain Martyrs Museum" in real life, so when I got in I saw all the Iron bars surrounding the walls to prevent the house from collapsing, I kept taking photos and then I reached a room where I found photos of the martyrs with all spot lights and some information written about them such as where they actually work, how many children they had, photos of the children, what they were wearing at the time...Etc

While I was walking from room to other, floor to roof I was looking at the walls and reading all the writings on the wall (some of them were written by them), I has flash backs of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and I begun to imagine what those guys been through that day and how each one felt linking that to the holes caused by the bullets and tanks on the walls with all the writing and stuff it made me cry.

So I decided to share that story with the whole world because I do want people to know what happened there once upon the time...

Photo and description dedicated to the souls of the courageous resistance men in heaven.
