KADS Charity Event for KAR

KADS (Kyrenia Amateur Dramatic Society) is staging a murder mystery in aid of KAR (Kyrenia Animal Rescue). The details are listed above on the poster which I designed :) I am part of KADS and also a supporter of KAR. So, I encourage one and all to come and support our little effort to raise money for the lovely cats and dogs. Also, to support the people who give time and energy to look after the animals with care. Please come and enjoy the show. Thank you.

Times are changing fast...

I think it is time to update my blog which I have been neglecting for a while. But I have my reasons as my work life takes most of my time :) So, what better way could I find to renew my blog other than to talk about time and it's importance. Recently, I read on BBC about a painting and its importance. The Science Museum is investigating the 450 year old potrait, thought to be of Cosimo I de Medici, Duke of Florence who is holding a golden timepiece. They believe it to be one of the first timepieces. Sounds very interesting, atleast to me.

Time is precious and so is the solving of Cyprus problem. I am very happy to know the two leaders on either side are using it to their advantage :)

In Nicosia..

I was in Nicosia with my friends and were visiting a cafe near Selimiye Mosque. I have been there before, but this time I was enchanted by its beauty. The impressive combination of gothic and islamic architecture is brilliant. A perfect marriage between two religions, does not look odd. Infact, it brings harmony and ambiance. How I wish, politicians on the both sides of the border feel the same and bring a solution to the island soon to reap the benefits of peace. Hope and pray....

Stop Wasting Water...

It is a sorry state to watch in many houses the way taps are run for long number of minutes to get hot water. Such acts are shameful on humanity when water is so precious. I always fill it up in a bucket and then use it on my plants and trees to nourish them. Would you waste food that way! The same way, water is food for the plants and trees....so please don't waste water. Please use as little as possible and don't waste it, especially running tap for hot water. Every little effort contributes to preserve Earth and protect Nature. 

Let's Save Water and Save the World for us and for our children

Anybody knows! Till it lasts, I am going to enjoy the nature's wonder thoroughly. Hope you too will enjoy it.
Will see you soon with more news...

Time to Wake Up....

Hey Cypriots,
It's been a while since i wrote something for my blog. And as winter has left us to bask in Spring and awaiting Summer, I feel the need to be awake like a polar bear from hibernation. So the exciting news of the month was opening of Ledra Street after many years. Good to know among all the problems plagued by this island, signs of unity show up in its own tiny way. Lets see what happens next.

Meanwhile, I will be on the hunt for more exciting news and keep my blog updated..promise!

Happy Sprintime
