Monochrome Monday: Muay Thai

Originally posted on indahs: travel story & photography:

Recent chats over Thailand with travel bloggers, Packingmysuitcase and Pearlspotting reminded me of our visit to Muay Thai Fight Competition in Phuket (Thailand). Blame it on my photography burnout during our visit in Thailand back then – I was totally forgot that I took pictures of the Muay Thai Fights!

It was Dutchie idea to watched Muay Thai Fights and our hotel in Phuket recommended us a competition at Bangla Boxing Stadium (Patong, Phuket). Personally I do not like any type of fighting competitions. Punching or kicking your rival does not look like a sport to me. I do believe the process of being a fighter itself is the sport. However Muay Thai is rather special. It started with Wai Kru Ram Muay performance by the fighters. It consisted of two performances, the first is to respect people who close to the fighters like the coaches, family, friends and supporters; and…

“Cara?”

Mother. She was too distracted to hear Susan coming. Cara quickly wiped her eyes. She hoped her mother didn’t notice. The rain softened to a drizzle.

“So, it was you. “ Susan joined her daughter at the window. “Ah, and now I see why.”

“Go away.” Cara mumbled.

“I’m going to help you. Come with me,” her mother requested before she exited Cara’s room.

Cara rolled her eyes and shook her head. Right, SHE’S going to help ME. She returned to the window in time to see Allie wrap her arms around Ryan’s neck and glare directly into Cara’s window. As the skies suddenly darkened, Cara determined it might be in everyone’s best interest if she distracted herself with her mother’s drunken delusions.

Cara’s mother was at the dinner table, already drinking directly from…

Mihran Kalaydjian Playing Love Me Sheri Bessi

Mihran Kalaydjian Playing Love Me Sheri Bessi

 

 

Melody: Love Me ” Sheri Bessi”
Lyrics: Edward Khoury & Elias Bandak
Music Arrangements: Edward Khoury
Pianist: Mihran Kalaydjian ” Mino”
Record Labels: Paramount Studios
Location: Coronado Island, San Diego
Love Me Sheri Bessi

When I am with you, I am giddy, youthful, like
savoring expensive dark chocolate; I’m satisfied.
Smiling from ear to ear just looking at you.
There’s never a dull moment with you; exciting.

When you speak, your gorgeous voice sounds like
music, causing chills to literally go up and
down my spine, moments to treasure captured
in a locket draping me forever.

A pearl inside the shell, such a rarity,
we were destined to be, I love you, you love me.
If there’s a clash there’s no crash, we ride,
joy splashes across our lives; magically.

When you caress me, I’m secure; a cashmere
blanket, I wear it with diamond sprinkles
twinkling in my eyes, crystal stilettos adorn
my feet as I dance the waves to the rhythm of you.

Speaking of eyes, I see visions of ecstasy,
dreams of harmony, whimsical sea horses bowing
down to lift us, as we ride this exhilarating
wave of love, the big one; surfing on it.

Sparkling sea waters glistening like sapphire as
an approval while we surf in and out of time,
we ride, we ride, a love ’til we die, we ride
this exhilarating wave of love divine.

Monthly Marine Life is back! I decided to publish this monthly article every 19th of the month and this post is the third edition :)  This time I am sharing a little bit information on Peacock Mantis Shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus). A beautiful marine crustacean that you don’t want to mess around with!

Peacock mantis shrimp is a native to the Indo-Pacific. I find this mantis shrimp is amazing creature and not only me who do think so! Murray Rosenbaum in his article The Amazing Mantis Shrimp explains why this shrimp is the greatest creature on this planet. Personally I can think of three reasons why I find the mantis shrimp is amazing.

Peacock Mantis ShrimpFirst, peacock mantis shrimp is very pretty to see in its habitat: ocean. It looks like an alien, isn’t it? I have seen it during my dive in Indonesia and the Philippines. It has striking colors…

The Churches of Valencia

The Churches of Valencia

Originally posted on indahs: travel story & photography:

The most famous church in Valencia (Spain) is located in Plaza de Reina, the Cathedral of Valencia. It was built in late 1230-ish with Gothic and mix of Barque architecture styles. It was curiosity that brought us to visit the Cathedral. Curiosity to see the Holy Chalice in the Cathedral that was believed as the true Holy Grail. The chalice was dated from the first century. Unfortunately my curiosity was unanswered. The Cathedral was celebrating St. Assisi feast day with a mass liturgy service. I managed to take some pictures inside but sincerely I did not feel comfortable to do so. The Cathedral was packed with people – a mix of tourists and the residents, those who just sightseeing like us and those who wanted to follow the liturgy service. Dutchie and I felt like disturbing the service, so our visit was very brief.

We continued walking around Plaza de…

Gaudí: de la Sagrada Família

Originally posted on indahs: travel story & photography:

I took these photos years back when visiting Barcelona (Spain). I am admiring Antoni Gaudí’s works and I hope to visit all his works in Spain. It’s an ambitious plan but worth to consider as most of his buildings are photogenic.

The church Sagrada Família is perhaps his most significant work that has to be completed. The construction began in 1882 led by architect Francisco de Paula del Villar. He abandoned the project due to some disagreements that later in 1883, the project was handed over to Antonio Gaudí. It became his lifetime project. The church was also called as the Cathedral of the Poor and financed entirely by donations. Gaudí himself said: “The expiatory church of La Sagrada Família is made by the people and is mirrored in them.

At my first sight the church looked alike a huge cave with lava materials with its outer walls decorated by…

Mihran Kalaydjian Performing She Left Me Alone

Melody: She Left Me Alone
Lyrics: Edward Khoury & Elias Bandak
Music Arrangements: Edward Khoury
Pianist: Mihran Kalaydjian ” Mino”
Record Labels: Paramount Studios
Location: San Fransisco

She left me and left me alone, she forgot the man she loved; she hurt me and hurt my life.

She left me, she forgot the man she loved, and she hurt me and hurt my life

The love is in my heart for you
It was found there, unconditional and true,
I flutter in the seventh heavens clouds
The lands of pink roses and sugar mounds,

The key to my heart has rested there,
Bursts of heat and sticky sweat love fill the air,
My lungs filled with the scent of love,
And you giving soul lifting me above.

Does anyone watch Man vs Food? It’s an incredibly mouth watering tv show that we follow most weekends whilst having a lie-in, trying to decide what to eat for breakfast. What better way to get inspiration than watching a man challenge himself against delicious dishes laid out before him!

My big brother is in town and has amazingly high threshold to extremely hot food. We decided to take him to our local biltong shop (a South African treat made from dried meat…similar to beef jerky but better!) to sample the various flavours of biltong we get here in the UK. We quickly slipped into excitement mode when we saw a poster advertising their Volcano Bite Challenge. Now this challenge is not for the faint hearted. It requires the challenger to eat 50g of the hottest biltong they have in three minutes! After a little bit of convincing, my brother agreed…
