Street Fruit Seller

This is the shot that I took when I was at the fresh fruit market in Sanabis Central Market. It was just outside of the market place, this fruit seller was selling some fruits to a customer in a small carriage. His creativity to put the fruits in the carriage is enabling him to sell more and more mobile reaching out customers outside on the road. So Smart!!!

Sari's Heaven

This is a shot of a Sari shop inside the souq of Manama. All the colourful textile for both body cloth and head scarf always make us wonder of how rich this Sari wearing culture is. For the reader's pleasure, why in the world Sari's doing here in the middle of Bahrain? The answer is easy, this type of shop exists to cater the need of the workers from India continent and it is actually a sight for the sore eyes for us. There are about 45% of the population in Bahrain consists of Non-Bahrainis. Hmmm High numbers, are not they?

I always enjoy going to Manama Souq, especially when there is a Sale or Stock Clearance and this Kashmiri Gift Shop offered a good deal that day!

PS : Dear loyal reader or blogwalker, I am really sorry for the quite long hiatus, I will bring some fresher photos about Sanabis DP in the coming days.

Shopping Time!

Souvenir anyone?

33,500 spectators and more ...

The Race is Today!

Today is officially the final Race day at the 2008 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix. Based on the data reported at Bahrain International Circuit official site, yesteday it saw a total of 33,500 people streaming in through the circuit gates to experience the action and the surrounding spectacle. Form the picture above you could see a glimpse of the stadium filled up with people. This picture donated by my good friend, Rio who was so lucky to receive a free ticket, while I was stucked at work. Further coverage about the race, please go here.

He even surprised me with the following short video taken during the practising and practising qualifiction where as the pole position claimed dramatically by MBW's Robert Kubica edging out Ferrari’s Felipe Massa by just one tenth of a second. I am feeling sorry for my favourite team, the Ferrari team. Later at the end of the day, I would post about the winner. Walah!!!

Enjoy the video then!!

In A Distance Away!

This is an offshot of BIC (Bahrain International Circuit) taken from our Vertigo Restaurant roof top. It surely look closeby, but actually it 1o to 15 minutes ride from us. Tomorrow is the beginning of the F1 Grand Prix Race (dubbed Our Race). It is quite sad actually as none of us could come to see the race. I will try to get some photo from my friends. Wish me Luck!!
