Bend it like Beckham

I saw “Bend it like Beckham” yesterday evening, and i have to say it was quite better than i expected.

It’s a light and fun movie to watch about an English Indian girl who wants to play football like David Beckham, and who faces strong opposition from her parents for it.

The situations at home with her mom and dad are the ones i liked best, they’re really true to the spirit all parents share, especially when they’re defending their culture and their traditions.

Cycling for world peace

Just read about this Iranian girl who is travelling around the world by bike to promote friendship and peace.

A solitary journey around the world that started on April 2003 via 10 countries: Starting with Italy, France, England, The United States, Japan , New Zealand, China, India, Oman, Saudi Arabia and ending in Iran.

She states her main goals as:

1- Gathering support and raising funds for orphaned children and the needy.
2- Communicating with the women, girls and youth in the countries to be visited and bringing their message to the women, girls and youth in Iran.
3- Observing the manifestations of God in world.

and her journey motto is:
“In the name of love, friendship and global peace.”

I personally think it’s cool, she’s having fun travelling the world and she’s doing good at the same time :)

Return Of The King

Just saw the trailer of Lord Of The Rings : Return Of The King on the official site.

From that and some preview material i saw on the DVD of The Two Towers, it looks like it’s gonna be one hell of a movie, and so much better and more exciting than the first two.

God, i can’t wait to see it…

Bionic Office

This should be one hell of a cool office to work in (click here).

Kind of reminds me of my old job in Jordan, i remember loving the office ever since i walked in for the job interview.
The boss was originally an architect as well as half the designers, so they turned the office space into something really cool.

The office i currently work in here in Tunisia is quite cool too, a lot of open space, and a nice environment.
