I love to eat ful medames or fūl Müdemmis (فول مدمّس).
Ful medames is a very tasty and healthy dish made out of beans.
This dish is actually from Egypt but it is popular in Sudan and Saudi Arabia too.
It is made from fava beans.
We eat ful medames with onion, garlic, tomatoes, olive slices, tahini, lime, olive oil and Arabian flat bread and falafel.
How to cook ful medames:
Cook the fava beans with olive oil and garlic.
When the beans are cooked, mash the beans.
Then, serve the ful.
Add some olive oil before eating our ful.
I also like to eat falafel (فلافل) with ful, so my mother will cook falafel whenever she cooks ful.
Falafel is also a healthy food that originated from Egypt.
Falafel is made from chickpeas.
Ful reminds me of chili con carne because it is a bean dish too.

Emoden was an alien from Pluto. Kamosa, Goplaga, Hilama, Meido and Emoden became friends. Meido invited Kamosa and all his other friends to visit Earth. Anyway, only Kamosa and Emoden agreed to go with him.
On Earth, they met three new friends named Qoyris, Clara and Insyirah.
Qoyris gave Kamosa the ’4 Players Chess’ set that Kamosa left on Saturn.
Qoyris found it the last time he went to Saturn. Anyway, Kamosa gave the ’4 Players Chess’ set to Qoyris because he already had another set that Goplaga gave for his birthday. Qoyris was very, very happy.
Qoyris said that he came from Saudi Arabia. One day, he went to Calovinia for a holiday. But when he wanted to go back to Saudi Arabia, he forgot where the airport was. So he was stuck in Calovinia until he built a spaceship and became an astronaut.
Clara came from England and Insyirah was from Riyadh but they traveled to a lot of places because they were astronauts too.
The next day Kamosa went back to Jupiter to meet his family. Anyway Emoden stayed on Earth and he met a lot of new friends.

Here are the pictures of the biggest clock in the world.
This clock tower is taller than the Big Ben in London.
It is a 4 faced clock.
The clock is at the top of the Abraj Al-Bait Towers in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
Mecca is the muslim’s Holy City.
The size of the clock is 43 x 43m (141 x 141 ft)
On Tuesday, August 10, 2010 the official news agency reported that Saudi Arabia will be testing the clock during the Ramadhan.
Abraj Al-Bait Towers is going to be the second tallest building in the world after Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The tower’s height is going to be about 601m(1,972 ft).
At night, the faces of the clocks would be green in colour.
They can be seen from very far away.
Below are more pictures of the biggest clock in the world.

On Tuesday July 27,2010 a Lufthansa cargo plane crashed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
This is a disaster.
Its German pilot and co-pilot were injured.
The plane was close to the airport when it caught fire and the engines stopped working.
Then it crashed and split into two halves.
The plane came from Frankfurt to Riyadh and was on the way to Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and then to Hong Kong.
I think it was lucky that the pilot and co- pilot were not killed in the crash.
In the Fedex plane crash in China on March 23, 2009 the pilot ad co-pilot were killed.

On Sunday my mother cooked bubur Arab for iftar.
I love bubur Arab very much.
In English bubur Arab means Arabian porridge.
My mother first ate the porridge in Makkah or Mecca.
Makkah is in Saudi Arabia.
We need to put:
The mutton must be soft and tasty.
I eat the porridge with fresh tomato and onion.
We can also add some Arabian salsa but I think the salsa is too hot.
When I eat Bubur Arab I’ll say:
I think there will be a bubur lambuk Arab one day.
