Everything Changes

Monday, September 23, 2013

Have you ever lived life without thinking about life? You take one day at a time and everything seems fine until you realise something you had not realised before. 

I don't know why I'm telling you this but perhaps a part of me believes it will help make a difference in someone's day. I woke up at 4.30 am last night with an epiphany.

Questions for the Tall White Man

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Not your usual event title, I know. But that's kind of our attempt at being ironic. [check out Hipster Muslim, by the way]

Are you searching for faith, answers, hope, an identity? A poet, brother and teacher; perhaps the Tall White Man can help you in your journey during this chilled out session with Arabic coffee and spoken word poems. This session is created for the youth by the youth. It is a safe space for the youth to ask questions regarding faith, spirituality and this crazy thing called life.

A Piece of Morocco in Malaysia

Sunday, September 01, 2013

The Moroccan Pavilion at the Putrajaya Botanical Gardens is a hidden gem; an escape from the twenty first century and one of my favourite spots in Kuala Lumpur. 

The Moroccan Pavilion is situated in the botanical gardens in Putrajaya. It is designed to showcase the rich tradition of arts and architecture of Morocco, and the Moors. The traditional art and style of the 4 Imperial cities of Morocco - Fez, Meknes, Rabat and Marrakech - is housed in a modern tropical building. The master plan respects the Moroccan tradition of movement from Public - Semi-Public- Private realms. The public enters through the main ‘bab’ (gate) / glass crescent into an intermediate garden; which leads to another ‘bab’ and so on. The water channel represents the link between Morocco and Malaysia, the host country. The pavilion design comprise of two opposing square, symbolising ‘yin-yang’ tradition of the East. {source: RDA Harris}

Though guests are not allowed to take photos of the pavilion's 'private realm' (which is simply divine, by the way) I can certainly show you a sneak peek of this exquisite masterpiece.
