[Music] Rainbow Veins

Hey ya'all,

Hope you're having a great time wherever you are. I'm recently into a song by Owl City called "Rainbow Veins". One of the few REAL happy songs I came's just stunning and one of the few songs you can listen to on repeat forever, and never get bored of.

I like the part where the lyrics goes like "your nerves gather with the altitude, exhale the stressed so you dont come unglued, somewhere there is a happy affair, a ghost of a good mood". I tend to remember that part whenever am stressed out or having a very tough day.

So yah...Enjoy!

December in Oman~

1. HM is visiting SQU on Saturday :O. I have no idea why this piece of news is being kept low profile as nothing has been announced officially in this regard. The faculty members of SQU have already announced it to the students though. HM is going to meet with the students and faculty members and admins of the university in the new auditorium of the new cultural center in SQU. Can't wait to hear the speech!

"We are proud of this university; and more than that, we are proud of you in Oman and elsewhere" - HM the Sultan in his earlier visit to SQU back in May 2000.

Turned out that HM is visiting SQU to inaugurate the new cultural center, below is the invitation card!

2. The Fireworks Championship is still running, and it's been great so far although I haven't been very close to the place the fireworks launch from...However, the last two shows will be held on the 15th and 17th of December. Enjoy them while you can ;)!

3. Athletes from all around the world are participating in the 2nd Asian Beach Games in Oman; in the one-million square meters Al-Musannah Sports City. Has anyone been there?

4. A very-very local news: my brazar is on za way! 26 hours left SHARP! I can't wait and missing you terribly :(

Till Next Time <3

Things I feel like saying..

Hey this is just a quick blog entry...

1. Congrats to Qatar on winning the 2022 World Cup bid..But the fact that they played the Israeli card is so sickening. They could have won the bid without such an obvious act/promotion for normalization with the Zionists.

2.  The entire world united to watch a flood of documented scandals when we failed to unite and stand up for the oppressed people in the region...adding more to their struggle and oppression

3. Practicing your rudeness arrogantly doesn't make you any tougher or smarter. Just for your information.

4. I've met an awesome lady called Judith Montgomery on Twitter. Just recently, I found out that she's published a novel that so much reminded me of A Thousand Splendid Suns & The Kite Runner by Khalid Hossaini. Her novel is called Aksandar, here is the novel's official blog...and if your are interested in following her, this is her user account name (@Aksandar). Her novel seems to be based on the things she's witnessed and came across while being there. I will def give it a read once I get hold of the book, inshallah..

5. Proud to be Omani till the end...

Till Next Time <3
