Thailand’s Safari World

IMG_20170924_125249_Fotor.jpg

Recently I was In Thailand and I visited this amazing zoo named Safari World. The reason why I am so in love with this place, it’s because I was so happy to see the animals aren’t in cages and have this much space to roam. We drove around looking at the animals from the car  and they seemed in a very good condition and it honestly made me so happy. Anyway enough with my rambling here are some photos.

My Trip To Thailand

IMG_20170922_031904_Fotor

Recently I’ve been going through some life bumps and mostly from work, I needed to take a break and just breath  My husband suggested I would go to Thailand with them, because he wanted to take his mother for checkup and might take his siblings as well. I agreed even though, I don’t really enjoy going with my in laws anywhere to be honest because they are the type that complains too much and I hate it.

My grandmother and mother tagged along later so we became a big family going on a vacation, I would love to describe the flight but I’ll sum it up with … it was horrible and I’ll post why in another post. It’s my second time going to Thailand actually so I was already familiar with the culture, the weather and the weird driving lanes.

It rained almost every night and I LOVE IT, the weather was sometimes humid and sometimes too hot to walk out. I didn’t really put in my mind that I’ll be going out to shop or have fun because the main reason we were there was a medical reason so I didn’t even spend time with my husband, I went out with my son and my in laws mostly while he had to take my grandmother and his mother to hospitals.

Surprisingly, I did have fun and I felt refreshed also in a better state of mind. I wish I could’ve stayed longer though but not with my in laws, probably just have my alone time with my husband at least. I wanted to talk about how amazing their zoo is, the Safari World in the next post for sure but I’ll probably schedule OwlCrate review first so stay tuned for that.

I’m Back

IMG_20171001_075940_Fotor

I’m back … In case you didn’t notice my disappearance, hi 🙂

I’ve been away for couple of weeks because I was in Thailand, I stayed for about a week there and I’ll post about it in the upcoming posts. I wanted to talk about my blog posts scheduling, I’m planning to make it twice a week which will make my posting flow more regular.

I didn’t post my September favorites and I’m sorry for that, I just can’t round up the products I would consider my favorite because of my recent trip honestly … Also I’ve been lazy. I promise I’ll get back to posting more with a regular schedule every Monday and Thursday, OwlCrate September box and my Thailand trip will be up in the upcoming posts.

Thank you and have a nice day ❤

Creating a Radio Show

IMG-20170918-WA0013_Fotor

Recently I mentioned how I’ve been asked to work in the radio station, it was something out of my comfort zone so I was nervous to accept it. Everyone was literally pushing me to go for it so I gave in and started working there as part time. I felt it’s a good opportunity for me to do something different and go out of my character for once, part of me was burned out from being the IT field for so long.

The producer contacted me few times to suggest songs to air, I didn’t know he was making me choose to play it live instantly. I said few and he sent me a picture that the songs are live at the moment.

IMG-20170914-WA0027_Fotor

It was evening and I tuned my phone to the station frequency and heard my playlist being played and obviously freaked out. The producer later informed me that his boss wants us to create a show to be aired and I got so excited to work on this.

In the past week, I was working with this guy on this radio show. We were choosing the name of it, writing scripts and I created a playlist for the demo episode so we can record it and show the big guys.

So clearly the radio show was going to be about Rock music and it diverse from there to punk, soft and alternative. It was an interesting idea to them because they’ve never done something like this, basically the head of that department has that principle of “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it” that’s why they never thought of developing it.

IMG-20170918-WA0010_Fotor

Everything is going well so far and hopefully I’ll have a date for my show to be aired, I’m very excited about this.

Here’s the second playlist if you are interested.

My Figure Collection

I don’t know how to start this post, I mean for me it doesn’t really sound like an original idea but I thought of sharing it. I like collecting figures but for some reason my collection consist of 90% Funko Pop ones but I like showing them off anyway so let’s start …

IMG_20170908_235747.jpg

 

Ezio Auditore Action Figure

The first item which I totally forgot to take an individual picture of, is my favorite character Ezio from Assassin’s Creed. This action figure was a birthday gift from my brother. I think he gave it to me 4 or 3 years ago and I didn’t open package because I like this preserved form.

IMG_20170908_234747.jpg

 

Elise De Laserre Figure

Another Assassin’s Creed figure, let me confess I was obsessed with that franchise so I bought plenty of items related to it, from shirts to wallets and keychains. Elise has a special place in my heart, I love her personality and I love how Assassin’s Creed Unity plays out in Templars against Assassins. I got this figure also as a birthday gift from a very close friend of mine who’s also a figure collector but his collection is way more beautiful than mine.

Ezio and Edward Funko Pop

By now you would pretty much understand my obsession with Assassin’s Creed. I got Ezio one as a free gift along with PS4 which my husband bought for me on our first day of being a married couple which was nice of him. Edward one was on sale actually and it was an offer of buying 3 Funko Pops for a certain amount of money, which was cheap so I got Edward along with these two below.

IMG_20170908_235420.jpg

Jesse from Breaking Bad Funko Pop and Cook Edition

I got these two along with Edward as I mentioned earlier. I love Breaking Bad series, it’s one of my favorites and obviously I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know.

IMG_20170908_235113

Soot Sprite in Miniture Bottle

Okay I wouldn’t consider this as a ‘figure’ but it’s related to my geeky side, I’ll let it slide in this post. I love Ghibli Movies and mostly Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle so these cute soot balls grabbed my attention and I had to keep one with me, I promise I don’t shake it. I don’t remember from where I got it, I remember it’s somewhere online but you’ll probably find plenty of variations of this on Etsy.

IMG_20170908_234916

Dancing Groot Funko Pop

I’m not exactly a fan of superhero movies but Guardians of The Galaxy .. I like it because of Groot honestly. I bought this with few games I got for my Nintendo 3DS and I remember it was the last one left, I was so excited when I got it because it’s super adorable and it’s a bobble head so EXTRA cute.

DobbyHermione and Gus Funko Pop

I got all these three from OwlCrate, Dobby from the Good Vs Evil box, Hermione from Epic box and Gus from Royalty box. Hermione and Gus are both minis from mystery boxes and they are super adorable, as for Dobby he looks so cute holding the socks.

Lara Croft and Adam Jenson Figures

I got those two from Loot Gaming when I was subscribed last year on July and August. I like the fact that they are exclusive so I feel special having them.

IMG_20170908_235433

Overwatch Reaper Funko Pop

Also got it from Loot Gaming even though I’m not exactly an Overwatch fan but it’s a nice addition to my collection.

IMG_20170908_235252

Deadpool Chibi Figure

I’ve seen this figure in an Instagram story on an account that sells gaming and anime items, and I instantly asked a friend of mine to get it for me because I LOVE Deadpool so this figure is one of my favorites.

IMG_20170908_235335

Hermione Funko Pop

I got this one from LootCrate’s Wizarding World which I didn’t post about but it had some awesome stuff along with this figure, my problem was it’s a bit expensive so I cancelled after getting my first box.

IMG_20170908_235021

Sora Bobblehead Figure

I got this figure as a birthday gift from my friends back in college when they threw me this amazing surprise party which we got in trouble for because apparently they stole tables from classrooms to prepare for the whole thing. I love this figure because it reminds me of that day and makes me appreciate having such friends.

Pagan Min Double Sided Figure

I got this figure also as a birthday gift from my brother along with the game itself. Since it’s double sided I was having hard time to position it in a way to be seen from both sides but it’s a cool figure and I like the details in it.

IMG_20170908_234926

Okamiden Figure

I got this on Loot Gaming as well and it’s probably the heaviest one compared to the smaller figures I have. Quite detailed and I like it.

IMG_20170830_210350.jpg

Ryuk Figure

Finally my latest addition and definitely my favorite figure, Shinigami Ryuk from Death Note and I’m in love with it. I recently watched the Death Note movie and … Let’s not talk about it again because it makes me mad but anyway I got this figure as a gift from a friend who knows how invested I am in Death Note.

I’m definitely planning on growing this collection and having a decent shelf to show them off, I would love to see your collection so please comment and let me know if you posted something similar. I hope you enjoyed this post and as always have a great day.

The Time I Got Asked to Host a Radio Show

This might come out as a shocking post to the people who know me because this is totally out of my character.

I’ve been inconsistent in posting in the past 2 months as I mentioned before because of my work and recently I finally finished this project so this event happened during that time. We were updating all computers within the firm to Windows 10 and that took awhile since we had over 800 machines to work on, anyway this happened when I was working in the English Radio department.

As you may or may not know, I work in the Public Authority for Radio and TV so I work around studios and radio booths as everything related to this form of media goes through. I was working in the English Radio department as I mentioned and while I was working, there was an employee walking around helping me by opening the offices in that department so I can finish upgrading the computers faster by working on multiple machines at the same time. I’m a friendly person, I like getting to know people so I decided to start a conversation with this person and as the conversation went by, I asked him who chooses the songs for the radio.

tumblr_mo8zc96bt21rlgnhdo1_500

The guy told me about two employees who chooses the songs and also hosts the radio shows they air regularly and they both aren’t Omanis, so the guy was amused in my interest in music and he said “Why don’t you create a playlist for us of 60 minutes” and honestly my eyes lit up from excitement.

If you know me, I’m addicted to music so I was REALLY happy when he asked me. I instantly agreed and we exchanged numbers so he can contact me later for the details and all because it’ll be like a part-time job for me. Later on he made me meet the managers and they asked me to speak to them in English so I did, they were impressed and all the sudden asked me to create a playlist and host a radio show with these tracks.

Obviously I freaked out because one of my fears is public speaking, I don’t know how many times I tried to escape presentations in college since I get nervous I sweat and talk too fast and I start shaking. Then they said they ALSO want me to read the news on the radio as well because apparently I have a good voice and accent for it, which made me MORE scared. They tried to calm me down by saying we’ll help you to develop that side of you, we really like supporting such talents and we believe you’ll do great with us.

And here I am now, confused about this whole thing because it’s out of my comfort zone. I really want to do it because of that reason actually, it’ll definitely build my confidence and also strengthen my character. Hopefully I’m going to start by creating playlists and we’ll see what happens from there.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

Death Note, Body Cavitation and Yoga

Hello September 
Hello Eid
Hello School
Hello whatever event left I didn’t mention. 

If you are Muslim, I hope you’re enjoying Eid and if you’re not I hope you’re having a great day. Last week was quite eventful and somewhat productive, I’m really hoping I can keep it up. Death Note movie was released on Netflix and … we need to talk about it.

mtf_qaQpA_344.jpg

Death Note is my all time favorite anime so I was really anxious when I found out it’ll be an American movie, hoping it’ll be as good as they claimed. I watched it on the day of release and I wanted to stop 5 minutes into it, and here’s why. Light has an intriguing personality, in the anime he’s a genius that went insane by time but in the movie he was too weak and it irritated me because it sounded like he did all that just to impress a girl who supposedly is Misa from the anime but named Mia.

I honestly got so mad when I watched it, I feel the movie didn’t grasp the real essence of Death Note story as the anime did. I even decided to watch the anime series all over again just to stop being mad. The gist of this, don’t watch the movie with high expectations.

Moving on to the next event that happened .. Let’s talk about body cavitation.

IMG_20170824_125545978

Recently I dyed my hair in this salon which was recommended to me by my sister and aunt, it’s a really nice place actually. I was comfortable in my visit when I dyed my hair there so I was planning to keep coming here instead of that salon I mentioned before that I had a weird situation in. When I was paying at the counter, I noticed a pamphlet about body cavitation and also a huge banner as you can see in the picture. I was interested because ever since I gave birth, I couldn’t return my body shape as it was before. It’s hard returning to that shape, I’m much thinner than I was before but the skin isn’t tight enough and it makes me feel really insecure about myself.

I made an appointment for consultation so I would understand the whole process and the sessions needed to achieve that model sexy body. The lady showed me the machines and explained to me how these devices are used, and that’s when I started to get intimidated because they were four devices for different purposes and she said it’s not a painful process but I got scared anyway. The device basically has a high or low frequency pad thing that will damage the fat, the rest of the devices are used for drainage of this fat and another one for scanning. Along with this process, it’ll smoothen the areas that has cellulite and make it less bumpy.

I cancelled on the day before my first session because I feel I can do it on my own and I don’t need a cheating method to do it fast, also I’m not exactly guaranteed that I will lose all that stubborn fat and tighten my skin as I didn’t really met someone that did this procedure to see the outcome. I thought why should I waste my money on it and I don’t know the results of it. I’m considering to get a massage that will eliminate cellulite and make my skin look smoother but that’s also expensive so I’ll see how this will go.

Because of this, I started doing yoga.

IMG_20170826_150413

I started with beginner poses and I really enjoyed it, I felt really relaxed. My body isn’t that flexible but doing these poses made me feel so much better. I did workout after it to shape up obviously and hopefully my loose skin will tighten .. Someday.

What were you up to this past week? Did you watch the movie? Did you like it?
