Never Alone Again
To you I give the whole me
For I believe that you’re my destiny
To you I offer every best of my heart
For I believe that you will value it

I want to share my whole life with you
For me to show that my love is true
I want to hold you in my arms
And sing you songs and lullabies

Loving you is what I want to do
Although I know that it can make me blue
Cause tears in my eyes has nothing to do
If I’m with a man that is you

Vera Hovhannisian Wins Gold at Culinary World Cup

No this is not a supermodel, this lovely lady Vera Hovhannisian has won a gold medal and the world cup at the Culinary World Cup 2014 held in Luxemburg from Nov. 22 to 26. The competition featured more than 1,000 cooks from 60 countries, as well as 105 national, regional, and youth teams. Vera Hovhannisian’s twin sister Rena also jointed her in the competitions. The sisters presented two works at the contest and both won gold medals. Hovhannisian has won a number of international competitions. At the age of 20 she received her first gold medal in Malta. She’s particularly well-known for her unique cakes.

I had to share this news, for obvious reasons… her cooking of-course ;)

“We offer our full support, solidarity and comradeship to the Armenian people and the Kurdish people, because our State Constitution, which is the law of laws, says no to discrimination, violation of human rights and genocide” she added.

The unofficial translation of the full text of the resolution reads:

Arab Israelis (Palestinians who have Israeli passports, and reside inside the State of Israel – inside the green line) were always considered as second class citizens. Some Israeli might tell you otherwise and this is bullshit, since the State of Israel is the only democracy in the middle east. And no matter what you tell them they will always be like “Look at the Arab world. Look what’s happening in Syria and Iraq. Would you rather have ISIS/IS taking over you?” Just because I’m against what’s going on in the rest of the Middle East doesn’t have to make me pro-Israel, okay?

Okay, let’s take a step back and talk about my rights as a citizen inside Israel. I do have my own rights: I study, I work and I pay taxes. Most of my taxes go to the army who’s operating in the West Bank and Gaza, giving hell to my friends…

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/11/28/us-mideast-israel-lieberman-idUSKCN0JC12Q20141128

“Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman proposed on Friday that Arab citizens of Israel be offered financial incentives to leave the country and relocate to a future Palestinian state.  Lieberman, whose ultra-nationalist party is a core part of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition, has previously spoken about redrawing borders but not about using sweeteners to encourage Arabs to uproot to a Palestinian state. … Lieberman, one of the most strident voices in favor of the separation of Jews and Arabs, said Palestinians living in Jaffa and Acre, two mixed cities on the Mediterranean coast far from the West Bank, should be encouraged to move if they want.  ‘Those (Israeli Arabs) who decide that their identity is Palestinian will be able to forfeit their Israeli citizenship and move and become citizens of the future Palestinian state,’ he wrote…

Is it okay to forget our reality for a little while? Is it okay to enjoy our time as human beings and not as Palestinians? Can we enjoy our time as Palestinians? As Palestinians, can we find a way to balance between bad times and good times? Even though we wake up every day to a reminder of the miserable life we live; reminder of the occupation/colonialism, can we find a space to live as humans?

It is normal for each human to have a daily routine. A routine is a way for us to control our life and make every minute of it counts. An average person’s routine could be waking up, going to work or college, maybe go to the gym afterwards, attending a party, get a few drink and so on. This type of routine can go according to what this human pleases, he/she have the power…

Monochrome Monday: The Colonnades

Vatican City

St. Peter’s Square (Vatican City) is surrounded by semi-round colonnades. Designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, each side of the colonnades consists of four rows of columns with total of 284 columns. Additionally, Bernini placed 140 statues of religious people on top of the colonnades. I did not count it myself but I was tempted to take picture of each statue. The two colonnades were geometrically designed to resemble two arms that embrace the crowds in the square.

Too many photos of the colonnades are available online, so I thought to take a photo with different perspective. Yes, I was queuing when taking the picture, it was a long wait and I learned a lesson to start early when visiting famous landmark ;)

Armenian flatbread Lavash

Armenian flatbread, otherwise known as lavash has been inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Armenia’s Foreign Ministry announced that the “preparation, meaning and appearance of traditional bread as an expression of culture in Armenia” had been included in the list during the 9th Session of the intergovernmental committee of UNESCO’s Convention for the Protection of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Paris on November 26.

UNESCO describes Lavash as the following:

Lavash is a traditional thin bread that forms an integral part of Armenian cuisine. Its preparation is typically undertaken by a small group of women, and requires great effort, coordination, experience and special skills. A simple dough made of wheat flour and water is kneaded and formed into balls, which are then rolled into thin layers and stretched over a special oval cushion that is then slapped against the wall of a traditional conical…

Sam Sevian playing chess at CCSCSL Invitational

13-year-old Sam Sevian completed the final requirement to earn the title of Grandmaster, the highest title a chess player can attain. He is now the youngest American Grandmaster in history.

Sevian, who lives in Boston, had already completed his three “norms”, or superior performances in high-level tournaments, required by FIDE, the World Chess Federation. He just needed to top a strength rating of 2500 to earn the Grandmaster title. He was just 16 points shy of the mark when he arrived in St. Louis Friday to compete in the CCSCSL Invitational. Sam went on to win the Championship and earned the title of Grandmaster.

Once you earn Grandmaster status, you have it for life.

Armenia and Chess

Armenia, a country in South Caucasus with a population of just three million, is a chess powerhouse. Chess holds an important place in Armenian culture that has produced some of…
