Before And After Photos: Devastation Of The Joplin, Missouri Tornado

28 05 2011

These photos(from AP) are of Joplin, Missouri before and after the powerful tornado(twister) tore the city.

At least 132 people were killed and more than 900 people were injured.

By Friday, about 156 people were still missing.

The tornado that hit Joplin on Sunday was rated an EF-5 or the strongest possible.

It scored a direct hit on the city of 50,000 people in southwest Missouri and left a swath of destruction nearly a mile wide, damaging some 8,000 buildings.

It is reportedly the worst single tornado in modern US history.

I am very sad to see the photos.

So many people are suffering and there are children missing during the disaster.

I pray that they will be okay.

Pameran Bahan-Bahan Rasullalah SAW & Kerajaan Turki Uthmaniyah

1 03 2011

Last week I went to the ‘Pameran Bahan-Bahan Rasullalah SAW & Kerajaan Turki Uthmaniyah’.

The exhibition was held at Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan, Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur.

The exhibition exhibits pictures of wonderful things from the Ottoman Empire and also things related to the Prophet Muhammad SAW.

Unfortunately I cannot see the real things because they are at the Tokapi Museum in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Tokapi Museum, Istanbul, Turkey.

I saw the pictures of the ‘wing of the door of repentance’, the bow of the Prophet Muhammad SAW with its silver holder and other great things.

We spent about 2 hours over there.

I enjoyed myself at the exhibition because over there I saw pictures of lots of wonderful historical things from Turkey.

I wish to go to Turkey so that I can see the real historical things at the Tokapi Museum.

16 02 2011

On 10 Feb, 2011 I went to a stamp exhibition.

The exhibition was held at the Muzium Negara (National Museum), Kuala Lumpur.

My sister Kafah and I on the way to the exhibition hall.

There were lots of stamps at the exhibition.

Over there, I saw the Penny Black and other stamps with picture of Penny Black.

Penny Black was the world’s first adhesive postage stamp.

Since the theme of the exhibition was ‘World of Flora and Fauna’ there were mostly flowers, plants and animals stamps at the exhibition.

The stamps were beautiful and colourful.

I love Penny Black the most because Penny Black was the first stamp in the world.

There were lots of stamps and and things that are related to the postal service at the exhibition.

There were also very old mailbox, old weighing scales, an old postman bicycle, old postmark machine and other things related to the postal service in the past.

And I also saw the longest stamp in Malaysia.

An old postman bicycle.

We spent almost 3 hours at the exhibition.

I enjoyed myself at the exhibition because I could see lots and lots of beautiful, old and new stamps from all over the world.
