Housed in Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai, is a replica of Al-Jazari’s famous 12th century elephant clock – a water based mechanical clock. I’ve only ever seen another version of this in Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization.
My Mom is crazy about gardening and she wishes she had a little place to tend to; however, living in a flat does not give us much of an option. But that did not stop my green thumbed mom from creating a colourful garden at home. She has grown tiny watermelons, tomatoes to roses…she spends her mornings giving them the love and care to help them grow.
Everyone seems to think that when it comes to colours, women think in Pantone shades while men are content to call white white and not ivory or pearl or what not. I don’t think that’s true to be honest, because in my family… my dad’s the only one who can have an entire conversation (read argument) on why an orange car is in fact not orange but some shade of rust and try to make us feel bad about it. Here’s hoping that the lit part of this lonely lamp is actually chartreuse! ^^
