Tokyo will be hosting the 2020 Olympics!

Madrid and Istanbul lost in the Saturday’s voting by the International Olympic Committee in Buenos Aires.

Turkey is in a bad situation with the troubled Syria as its neighbour.

Anyway Tokyo has not yet solved the radiation leaking after the  Fukushima Nuclear Plant’s explosion on March 11, 2011.

So, Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe promised an effective cleanup.

Congratulations to Japan for winning the vote for hosting the 2020 Olympics!

A rainbow created by the moon — definitely worth a look.

Our planet Earth is very beautiful.

There are so many beautiful places for us to visit and enjoy their beauty.

But these places will be gone if we do not take care of our planet and if there are wars around the world.

Let us take good care of our planet and please stop the wars.

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.
