Weekly Writing Challenge : Backward

image

Finally got my books exchanged and walked out happily capturing panoramic images through my new Samsung galaxy s4.

Its humongous, isnt it?

Its was a very fine day when my hubby’s cousin told me about the logos hope which is a missionary ship with volunteers from many parts of the world working together to help the underprivileged.
Its a ship with a bookfair where people can buy books for a fraction of the retail price. I agree to my cousins wird that the books are very cheap.
I was eager to visit the ship from the time I herd of it. I was searching online for the details of arrival at the colombo harbour.
My favourite Sunday newspaper and a social media site had an article about the ship arrival in sri lanka and I fixed a date with ny family members to make it a day out.

I couldn’t wait to visit the bookfair.
Finally it was a Thursday evening as the clock stuck three we started getting ready expecting the rain to stop as I had an infant whom I had no other option apart from carrying him along.

We started of by four to the harbour and as we reached we had to park our car and get the tickets from where we were escorted into a bus which will take us to the harbour.
As we went closer to the ship I was really happy to walk in. It was my first ever visit to a real ship and my first visit to the harbour.
As we entered we were welcomed by a crew member and was given a short tutorial about how the bookfair works and a short briefing of logos hopes mission.
Soon afterwards we entered the book fair where there were hundreds and thousands of books on various fields. Everuone can find a book if you are interested in reading. I am addicted to cook books and my favourite was a few baking books. I managed to get one and thought my hubby would be interested in dietery books so grabed a couple of them and walked towards the cafe where my family members met and had a chat over a cup of hot chocolate and popcorns. Kids prefered something cool so we got some lime juices and ice creams.

Soon afterwards we came out of the ship through a passage which led outdoors with a line up of benches, a sailors dummy, huge travelling bag which I believe should be the largest in the world (cos I stood inside it and got a few pictures “not that am 7 feet ) there were many sorta of souvenirs like keytags, badges, 3d model ship making sheets, pena and many more.

As we came out of the ship we took some pictures and returned home.
Soon after coming home and freshening up I remembered I forgot to take the pictures on panorama mode and felt like dashing backwards like harry potter does through a time tuner and redoing the photographing. Yet it was impossible so I made up my mind. The same noght I was talking to my hubby about my adventure and the books I found. He was less interested in the books as we both have a very clear knowledge of lowcarb and dietery proportions. Soon after the call I was eager to return the books and get some other book which I badly wanted.

On monday I returned to the ship with my family and selected a few books I wanted and rusged to the counter with a doubt if they might exchange.
I was lucky enough to get the books exchanged and as I came towards the bus I switched my phone camera to panorama mode and clicked a few pictures in various angles.
The best angle is posted on top of the post.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Nostalgic

20130706-130459.jpg

This weeks photo challenge is really awesome. I had to stumble over my images to pic one. There are so many memories that make me nostalgic yet I managed to pick a couple.
Although these images are my old residential area which is called jumeira village circle I really miss it after shifting a month ago.
Completely deserted with only a few building developing here and there its such a peace of mind to look out of the balcony no matter the hot climate as its got a serene beauty which can never push you indoors.
Nights are the times that reminds you your Abroad with a line up of colorful lights glooming in the dark sky.

“CINNAMON CAN COMBAT DIABETICS”

 

At the Hospital
two people were seated talking at the waiting area until the appointment number was called for them to consult the doctor for diabetics.

Patient 1: recently I read in the paper that cinnamon can combat diabetics did u read?

Patient 2: Is it so, I forgot to get the paper.

Patient 3: overheard the conversation got up and walked to the receptionist.

Receptionist: How may I help you sir,

Patient 3: I would like to cancel my appointment and get a refund; may I know the procedure please?

Receptionist: Please may I know the reason, sir.

Patient 3: I saw 2 talking that cinnamon can combat diabetics, then why should I just spend on doctors, when I can get cinnamon free too??

Receptionist: But sir, how do u get cinnamon free??

Patient 3: Why I live in CINNAMON GARDEN!!

Receptionist: Aaaaaaawww!!! 😉
