Sleeping with the fish at Dubai, UAE "Underwater 'Discus' Hotel"

This is really amazinggggg!!!Underwater 'Discus' Hotel Planned For Dubai

------------------------------

Owh Lord..
Dubai Architecture is world famous and one of the vital ingredient of Dubai Economy and attractions.
The sky-line high-rises are worth experience of Dubai city-life.
The latest Dubai-Architecture & Design provides a stunning look to the city of Arab Emirates.

When it comes to outlandish new design ideas, Dubai is certainly ahead of the curve.

The glittering emirate has already got the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, and even the Earth itself - in the form of dozens of man-mad islands just off its coastline.

So it is no surprise to hear that architects are set to take on a new challenge - building a half-submerged hotel, complete with underwater rooms offering views of life below the surface of the sea.


The hotel will have two main "discs" - one below and one above the water, which will be connected by three legs that will feature stairways and elevators enabling guests to hit the ocean in a unique way, according to the Daily Mail.


Guests will be able to sleep underwater, but still enjoy the sunshine in the disc perched above the surface.



The underwater section is located up to 10 metres deep and is composed of 21 hotel rooms adjacent to the submerged dive centre and a bar.


A special lighting system will illuminate the flora and fauna outside and the highest technology in the rooms will allow guests to zoom in and take a closer look at even the tiniest creatures using macro photography.
Looking forward to enjoy the beautiful submarine..:)

想念一个人的滋味

想念一个人的滋味,
手机总是拿在手里,却还是颓然的放下,
一遍又一遍地拨着那几个熟透于心的阿拉伯数字;

你知道不知道,
想念一个人的滋味
是当电话响起时,
总是会心慌意乱兴奋的不知所措,
看见来电显示时是那熟悉的号码时,更是兴奋不已,
满身的血液似乎在一瞬间涌上了脑海,满脸的红晕。

想念一个人的滋味,
总是呆坐在电脑前,对着屏幕发呆,
屏幕上的及身边现实的世界都已经消失不见了,
脑海里却一遍遍反复的想着,
此时此刻的你,在哪里?在干什么?
是不是也能体会到了这份思念?是不是一样也会心有灵犀而会心神不安?


想念一个人的滋味,
放下自己所有的矜持,听风起舞,让她飘向你,
带走我所有的思念给你,看见天空中飞翔的鸟儿,
多么希望自己能够插上翅膀,飞到你的身边,这就是我的快乐
想念你的感觉是随着音乐声那种想念的滋味已经深深的深入到灵魂里;


想念一个人的滋味,
抛开对任何事物的感念,一心一意的只是想你。

想念一个人的滋味,
一个凝眸、一个微笑、一声温柔的低语、便让我所有的付出都觉得无怨无悔。

想念一个人的滋味,
是明明很生气很气恼,却在见到你的一瞬间都消失的无影无踪,
觉得心情似乎轻盈的可以跳起来,嘴里哼着歌,似乎世界都是自己的,
知道你就在我的心中,而我也在你心中的那份甜美。



04-02-2012
时间也许能改变一切,但却改变不了对你的思念!

2012年立春的时间

2012年的立春时间是阳历2月4号18点40分(06:30pm)

---------------------------------------

立春24节气之首,所以古代民间都是在“立春”这一天过节,相当于现代的"春节",
阴历正月初一称为"元旦"。 
立春,是二十四节气之一,又称“打春”,“”是“开始”的意思,中国以立春为春季的开始 

每年2月4日或5日太阳到达黄经315度时为立春,
《月令七十二候集解》:“正月节,立,建始也,立夏秋冬同。

立春”只能说春天来了,不能代表新年的第一天,
元旦(大年初一)才是新年的第一天。
中国古代“元旦”历来指的是农(夏、阴)历正月初一

元旦”的“元”,指开始,是第一的意思,凡数之始称为“”;
”,象形字,上面的“日”代表太阳,下面的“一”代表地平线。

”即太阳从地平线上冉冉升起,象征一日的开始。
人们把“”和“”两个字结合起来,就引申为新年开始的第一天。

HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR FOOTWEAR

I'm a shoes lover! 
Too much addicted to shoes especially high heels! 
Unfortunately everyone Ignore me when I wear high-heels..
sobbbssss.. T.T

Anyway,back to the main point of this blog!

This is a sharing post regarding "HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR FOOTWEAR" !!



>> you dont like to see this, don't you?? <<


I believe everyone has own method to keep your beloved footwear, 
but when it comes to Urgent and Hurry, how can u identify and find your shoes in a minutes?



 >> this is good..but barely see this in the current market <<


I'm going to Share my idea with you guys! 
You don't need to buy any shoes organizer and so on..
as that will cost you much if you have alot of shoes to look after!!

First of all,
Do not dump your shoes box..
This always happened to alot of people when they purchase any footwear at overseas just to avoid overweight and so on waste space and bla bla bla.. 

If you don't mind, unfold it and organize your luggage bag carefully..
Its aint metal or glass nor other heavy material,so wont carry many weight!
.
.
.
Shoes Box is always the beginning of caring your footwear! 
Other than CHEAP
LOVE the Earth is the main point!
Majority of the Shoes Box material can be Recycle, Go! Green and LOVE the WORLD!

The item below cost about BND2-3.00/pcs or RM5-6.00/pcs at department store!
why you need to spend your money just like that?
This is a BIG NO NO!! You might not realize you're polluting the world!!


Some say because this transparent so it is easy to find & locate where is it and bla bla blaaaaa~ Well, I'm here to say.. 
I have the other method to SAVE your money & this is even better!! =)

Check this out!

My Advice & Method:
1. Keep the Shoes Box 
(I always keep 2-3pcs extra even though my shoes is broken, I ever encounter no FREE shoesbox during purchase)
2. Take a photo of my footwear
3. Print it out & Stick it on the box 
(like the photo above)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The BEST Footwear Organizer!
*Lovely*





This idea apply to all sort of things including accessories, bag and others!
[ D.I.Y ] Let's do it yourself too!

初七 ~ 人日的来源



也许是因为现今的生活开始现代化了,渐渐的使大部分的人始忘了我们华人的习俗…
趁着今天是“初七”,我找来了些资讯和大家分享~


正月初七是中国传统习俗中的“人日”,即“人类的生日”. 这在中国至少有两千年以上的历史。 

中国民间称初七这天为“人日”“人胜节” 或“七元日”。

根据汉代东方朔《占书》记载,农历新年的首八天为人和不同畜牧作物的生日,依次序为“一鸡,二狗,三猪,四羊,五牛,六马,七人,八谷。

”晋朝董勋《答问礼俗说》记载:
“正月一日为鸡,二日为狗,三日为猪,四日为羊,五日为牛,六日为马,七日为人。” 

故此,每年正月初一为鸡的生日,
初二为狗的生日,
初三为猪的生日,
初四为羊的生日,
初五为牛的生日,
初六为马的生日,
初七为人的生日,
初八为谷的生日,

接着,

初九为天的生日,
初十为地的生日。

传说女娲创造苍生,顺序造出了鸡狗猪羊牛马等动物,并于第七天造出人来,
故此初七为人的生日。
因此,汉民族认为,正月初七这一天是人类的生日,俗称“人日子”。



专家介绍说,
这一天,中国南方一些地区有“捞鱼生(类似吃生鱼片)” 的习俗,
寓意越捞越高、步步高升。

此外,一些地方在这天还有吃面条的习俗,寓意着用面条缠住岁月的双腿,取长寿之意。
此外,正月十七和正月二十七也被视为“人日子”。
正月初七,十七,二十七,此三天分别为小孩儿,大人和老人的“日子”,谁要过“日子”就要吃面条。


捞鱼生南方一些地区,
人们有在人日节“捞鱼生”的习俗,捞鱼生时,往往多人围满一座,
把鱼肉、配料与酱料倒在大盘里,大家站起身,挥动筷子,将鱼料捞动,
口中还要不断喊到:“捞啊!捞啊!发啊!发啊!”
而且要越捞越高,以示 


此外,传说中也有人用七种菜做成的羹,
在人日的时候食用,以此来取吉兆,并说此物可以除去邪气、医治百病。
各地物产不同,所用果菜不同,取意也有差别。


广东潮汕用芥菜、芥兰、韭菜、春菜、芹菜、蒜、厚瓣菜;
客家人用芹菜、蒜、葱、芫茜、韭菜加鱼、肉等;
台湾、福建用菠菜、芹菜、葱蒜、韭菜、芥菜、荠菜、白菜等。


其中芹菜和葱兆聪明,蒜兆精于算计,芥菜令人长寿,客家人喜用鱼一起煮,取食有余之意。


汕头市区的菜摊,在这一天将7件菜搭配好,论把算钱,不计斤两,人们乐意接受。
农村哪一户欠一两件菜,在地里采他人一二株菜凑成七件,没人说他是贼。


大家一起协力把华人的习俗流传到下一代吧~ 
Thank You !! ◕‿◕


Happy Birthday~ 生日快乐~

My Melody & Kuromi



~ A simple article to Introduce "My Melody" & "Kuromi" ~

Many people still confuse with My Melody(in pink) & Kuromi(in black)..
I'm here to clarify the difference..=))



My Melody is a girl rabbit who always wears a red or pink hood that also covers her ears. Her birthday is on January 18. 
My Melody was first released in 1975, and born at the forest of Mariland. 
She was the Little Red Riding Hood character in a version of the classic fairy tale featuring all animal characters. She also one of the family member of Sanrio, Japan!

---------------------------------------------------


Kuromi is the rival of My Melody
Her black hood with a pink skull motif just has ‘I rock!’ written all over it! 
She is a white rabbit or imp-like creature, wearing a black jester's hat with a pink skull on the front and a black "devil" tail in the place of a normal rabbit's tail. 
Kuromi's birthday is on October 31 (Halloween).

今年龙年为什么有年30晚?

今年2月份的农历只有腊月二十九,没有大年三十;而公历却比平年多了一天,即2月有29天。南京紫金山天文台的有关专家近日释疑。 

据介绍,出现这种情况是由于公历与我国传统农历的特点决定的。目前全球通用的公历年,长度为365天5小时48分46秒。为了使用方便就将365天作为公历平年的一年。这样累计4年就有23小时15分4秒,几乎接近一天的时间,如果积累400年就会多出97天来,久而久之会出现寒暑颠倒。惟一的解决办法是4年设一个闰年,每逢闰年就比平年增加1天。 

而我国数千年的传统农历的编排,既要考虑太阳又要兼顾月亮,为保证农历每月的第一天(初一)必须是朔日,所以大小月的安排并不固定。从今年1月7日腊月初一的朔日到2月5日正月初一的朔日恰逢小月,因此大年三十只好被“省略”了。据悉,公历2月份没有大年三十是一种正常现象。此种情形曾在1988年出现过,而下一次则要在2012年再出现。
