I went to the Bahrain International Circuit on December 16. It was my first race circuit experience and a fantastic one altogether. Bahrain itself is an incredible country, experiencing that furious development the gulf has recently become famous for. The circuit is 30 km from Manama (from where i stay) and it takes around 35 minutes to get…

A Quick Bite

 Good Evening from Manama!! 🙂  This place has a very light atmosphere with bright colors, and when I see a bit of turquoise somewhere, my heart always skips a beat. My husband and I joined a friend here for a quick snack as we were picking up some groceries, the service team are very friendly and…

Northern Run

After showing you around the western and the eastern part of my new neighborhood, it’s time again for yet another part of the neighborhood stroll and this time it’s gonna be the Northern part, my absolute favorite in the neighborhood. This part of the neighborhood has a lot to offer. I like to start at the corner of Marvida Tower ( my current…

Hungry for More-Day 30-The Arabian Diaries

Last week I gave readers an inside scoop on the best of Western part of the neighborhood, so it is only fair to give Eastern part some love 🙂  Eastern Part is a quaint neighborhood nestled between other little areas of Juffair such as Al Shabab Road and Bahrain’s coastline. The area is the site of…

My first Abaya

Good Evening from Manama! 🙂 This post is part of a series on our trip to Ahmed Al-Fateh Islamic Centre located in Juffair, Manama which is only a short 5 minutes walking distance from my apartment. Instead of struggling with what to wear, I just grabbed my black Abaya  (the first time I wore an…

The Arabian Diaries-Day 22-My Happy Place

I know that when you take the time for a few minutes every day to notice the positive, it does make a difference in your whole attitude. It does not make the problems go away but it can give you the confidence to be able to handle them a little better. We all need a “happy…

The Arabian Diaries-Day 28-A Misty Evening

Everything seems more epic on a rainy day. Coffee and evening sky at the balcony is just a coffee and evening sky. But Coffee and evening sky in the rain? Much more interesting. Love the way that city shines. The air is clear and cold, the streets are damp and clean, and that fresh rain…

Splash into an Artists’ World….

                    “Art is the response of man’s creative soul to the call of the real.” – Rabindranath Tagore Art is as old as civilization. But it is this century which ends in a day which has given a distinct character to the Indian brush. It is…

Change is Around the Corner

          Here’s what the bible says,” Call those things that are not as if they are and they shall be.” Good Happy Wednesday Evening! I just find myself always drawn to colors, and when I see a bit of turquoise in there as well, my heart always skips a beat. I get this feeling…

Summer Heritage Time

     ”Summer means happy times and good sunshine. It means going to the beach, going to Disneyland, having fun.” -Brian Wilson It’s been awhile hasn’t it?  I don’t know if anyone even reads my blog but goodness I have really missed blogging! The last time I blogged was in January. I really wanted to write but sometimes, you…

Celebrating the Beauty of Art – and the Nature in it

Landscape painting is traditionally at the top of the hierarchy of Chinese painting styles. It is very popular and is associated with refined scholarly taste. Landscape painting had evolved into an independent genre that embodied the universal longing of cultivated men to escape their quotidian world to commune with nature. As a nature lover I am…
