A Visit to Al Fateh Grand Mosque

For someone who’s living in Bahrain for around 10 years, it’s kind of embarrassing to say that I haven’t been to Al Fateh Grand Mosque, one of the country’s top tourist destination, until recently. Honestly speaking, I wanted to visit Al Fateh Mosque for the longest time now but I just couldn’t find the right…

Traditional Arabic Breakfast at Saffron by Jena

Upon entering a small street in Muharraq, particularly at Al Qaisariya Souq, you will find a gem called Saffron by Jena. I didn’t expect to find such a restaurant inside the souq and I am so happy to discover such a place thanks to my friends who brought me there. I mean, I’ve been living…

Interviewing the Bored Author

If you’re not into long posts, move along. This will most probably bore you just like how bored I am right now. Now, I’m going to start answering 45 questions because I seriously have nothing to do. Alright? 45. You have been warned.

♚Joyful Memories

Almost two years ago, I was asked to contribute a music composition for our district’s entry in a film making contest. Among the number of compositions I submitted, this short piece was selected. This is the second version of the piece. The first version was only played by piano, it’s a pitch higher, and the tempo is faster….

Blooming Fire Trees

photo from Ben Vallejo If you’ve known me long enough, you’ll know that I have this weird love for trees. Okay, maybe not love. Let’s go for admiration. On the way to the cemetery where my deceased grandmother is resting, a certain tree got my interest. The cemetery is located in the province where my mom…

♚Art Dump

Remember the chibis (little chubby characters) I posted last month for my first art dump? Yea, these are their ancestors, predecessors, or whatever you want to call it. These are my first three digital drawings. I drew them on MS Paint and used the laptop’s touchpad to draw. It was too challenging for me, really….

Ceiling

Spooks #2: The gym’s ceiling at the shower area is open. You can see the tubes and pipes here and there. Basically, you can pretty much see everything in plain sight. Also, the lights focused on each cubicle; thus, making the area somewhat dim. Whenever I go inside a cubicle, I try my best not…

♚Art Dump

These are some of the drawings I did for the people of Gaia Online. I wanted to practice a certain style and play around with new ones and that place gave so many characters to choose from. I decided to post it here because they need some love~! I should probably start drawing again. Now, where…

How to Get Over a Broken Heart

I may not be one of those people who got his/her heart broken a million times but I am still part of those people who got their hearts broken. You’re most probably part of it too. Getting over a broken heart can be difficult. That’s true. Some handle it pretty well. Others, well, they couldn’t and…

Malkiya Beach

I’ve been living on this island for more than 10 years and I realized that I haven’t fully explored the place. It’s not like there’s a lot to explore but I haven’t seen most of them anyway. What do we have here in Bahrain? Honestly speaking, the only places I know are the malls, fort,…

Solo Car Rides

Spooks #1: Whenever I drive alone, I always have this feeling that someone’s at the back seat riding with me. At the corner of my eye, I’ll always get a glimpse of someone’s head at the rear mirror. I’ll get surprised and look. But, there’s no one. Of course, there’s no one. It’s just the head…
