KaMu?!

As a photographer I've taken many photos that I think they are good but I don't think that other people actually see what's the beauty which I see in that certain photo and they just don't...What makes me realize whether one of my photos is good (according to others) or not is the amount of views, favorites and comments about that photo in my flickr photo stream.

كمصور قمت بإلتقاط العديد من الصور التي أعتبرها بنظري جميلة، غير أني لا أعتقد أن البعض يرى نقاط الجمال في تلك الصور كما أراها...توصلت إلى هذه النتيجة من خلال عدد مشاهدة تلك الصورة و عدد إضافاتها للمفضلة و كمية التعليقات عليها في موقعي في فلكر.

The photo above is an example, it had very few comments in flickr; Now I think it's weird that it was chosen to be in a brochure, website and a blog of "KaMu" restaurant in Tokyo and soon in Austraila...Cool isn't it?

لنتخذ الصورة أعلاه كمثال، حصلت على القليل من التعليقات في فلكر و أرى انه من الغريب ان تم اختيارها لتكون ضمن بروشور، موقع و مدونة مطعم "كامو" الياباني في طوكيو و قريباً في أستراليا!

And this is their brochure

My trip to Sharm El Sheikh


Sharm El Shaikh is a city in Sinai, Egypt located on the red sea known best for corals and sea life.
I honestly thought it's just like flat, hot and dusty just like Kuwait but I didn't really expect what I saw...I was there from 29th of April 2009 until 9th of May 2009, everybody I knew told me that's a long period to spend over there but after spending all those 10 days yet I think it's not enough for a first time.

Going back on time, I packed my bag with plenty of tanktops, swimwear, shorts, snorkel, a diving mask and a water proof case for my digital SLR camera which I ordered online.

Until then I had no clue that I'll comeback to Kuwait with a new hobby which is Snorkeling.

I've done plenty of fun things over there, I went to many different locations and of course I've taken tons of photos...The only sucky thing about was me being the photographer so I don't get many photos of me :(

Cleopark (which is a water park) was fun although there is a larger water park called Aqua park but I didn't know it until one day before going back to Kuwait.

I went to many cruises where I had the chance to snorkeling in the open sea and enjoy the corals and colored fish , one was to Ras Mohammed, one to the blue hole (which was my favorite spot) we took a 4*4 car then a camel (that was a scary ride) and thrid one was to Tiran island where I almost drowned because I was exuasted from last day's trip so I spent the rest of the trip sleeping *blushes* LOL

The only things I regret:
- Sleeping when we got closer to the recked ship on Tiran island cruise
- Not going to Aqua Park (the large one)

Kuwait Trip in 4min

I loved that video, it's a sequel of photos taken on the road from Bahrain to Kuwait by 3 Bahraini guys.

I think it's very creative idea, I love it except I wonder why do they need all that bread for?

Push

I watched that movie yesterday, I like it and it worth watching.
Genre: Thriller \ Sci-Fi

Fasting for MRI scan.

UPDATE> Just came back and it was one of the scariest moments of my life...No wonder I used to drive my mother crazy when I was little, that's why she used to force me stay up all night till dawn so I fall a sleep during the scan.

They made me keep all my stuff in a locker, injected me twice first time before the scan and the second time during it...Then they asked me to place two tiny ear pieces because they told me it will be loud in there, at the time I thought they were just trying to make look stupid...When I got in there I did look stupid but it wasn't that loud, thanks for the ear pieces :S

Amazing isn't it?


Created by Ahmad Al Saleh, a slide show made of sequel of photos

A scream


What a beautiful touching song of hope and pain, I think every human being no matter where he or she from can relate to that song.
By now you'll notice that I rarely listen or like songs by male singers...And I do have a point of view about that which is thinking that female singers can deliver emotions in a song better than a male singer.

The performer of this song is an exception, probably he is the only male singer who makes me "see" the pain in his performance.

I had a hard time trying to translate this song because I didn't want to lose the powerful meanings in each phrase since Arabic poetry's point of strength (in my opinion) is figure speeches.

My very favorite parts of the songs is the second and third.



Song name: Sarkha (صرخة) A scream
Album: Wahishni Jeddan (واحشني جداً) Missing you alot
Year of production: 2009
Song genre: Oriental, Tarab
Tempo: Slow
Singer: Saber Al Reba'ei - صابر الرباعي

Lyrics by: Hatim Al Qeezani - حاتم القيزاني
Composed and Arranged by: Mohammad Allam - محمد علامTranslated by: RADIANT GUY (ME)

Everything in the universe is heading to an end...
Except good words will remain the way echo does...
Only if you understand the meaning of good words

What do I have so you envy me?
Expect agony which was caused by you in the first place!
Don't let my silence fool you...
I am hiding a scream which will frightens a volcano!
Don't let my smiles fool you...
Sometimes I smile as a result of sadness!

I wanted to cry loudly...
I wanted to run and surpass everything including the wind...
No...I don't care if I tripped and fall down...
All what I care about to run away of my sadness...
I know the road will be hard to pass, but I will walk it all the way till the end

A word is a star lit with wisdom...
If you imprisoned it, it will survive...
If you imprisoned it in the middle of darkness, it will survive
The word tought us to be masters in the universe
The word changed many people as long as it was full with emotions
The word builds, but doesn't pull down
It heels, doesn't wound
The word raised the morning...
It lit human beings path to goodness

I have plenty of words which no one heard...
I have plenty of screams which no one felt...
And the best cure for my agony to remain silent!

Hey road of patience, "travel" (figure speech for being a lone) is taking so long...
We've lost many golden years of our lives while we don't notice it


كل اللي في الدنيا مصيره للفنا...
إلا الكلام الطيب يبقى صداه
لو تفهموا معنى الكلام الطيب

اش اللي عندي تحسدوني عليه؟
غير التعب و انتم سبب تعبي اللي عايش بيه!
ما يغركمش سكاتي...
في داخلي صرخة تفزع البركان!
بركــــــــان!
بركـــــــــــــان!
لا تغركم بسماتي...
ساعات نتبسم من الأحزان!

حبيت نبكي نصيح...
حبين نجري نفوت حتى الريح...
لا لا لا لا ما يهمنيش نطيح
اللي يهمني نهرب من الأحزان
نعرف طريقي مليح من بمصاعبو نمشيه مهما كان

الكلمة نجمة منورة بالحكمة...
لو تسجنوها تعيش الكلمة...
لو تسجنوها وسط الظلمة تعيش...
لو تسجنوها الكلمة

و الكلمة ياما علمتنا نكون...
أسياد في هالكون

و الكلمة ياما غيرت الناس ما دام فيها إحساس
الكلمة تبني و ما تهدم
تشفى و ما تألم

الكلمة طلعت صباح...
نور طريق الخير للإنسان

زايد كلامي اللي ما سمعوش...
زايد صراخي اللي ما حسوش...
و أحسن دوا لمواجعي الكتمان

يا طريق الصبر طال السفر طول على الصابرين
من سنين العمر ياما ضيعنا و إحنا مش حاسين

VOTE KUWAIT



كنت أقدر اصوت في الثلاث مرات اللي طافوا و ما صوت، لسبب بسيط و هو شعوري باليأس من الأعضاء اللي كل همهم أشياء تافهة و الواسطات حق ناس ما تسوى و بنفس الوقت طاقين مواضيع الكويت الكبيرة بالطوف.

قلت لو كل واحد فكر بهلتفكير ما راح يتغير شي، شلة البقر نفسهم بيدخلون المجلس كل مرة، و عشان جذيه قررت أصوت هالمرة و نشوف شنو بيصير...اللي يقول الحين نفر واحد بيفرق لول

رحت هناك مادري شالسالفة و كنت الوحيد اللي مو لابس دشداشة و انا ماشي بين الجماهير الغفيرة كنت حاس برهبة المسرح، حسيت نفسي البطة السودا...خلينا نقول البطة الخضرا أحسن بما إني كنت لابس أخضر.

يقولي الشرطي اللي هناك جم رقم قيدك، قلته مادري شنو يعني رقم قيدي عشان أعرف جم لووول
