Hello Ween...

Booh! Hello dudettes and dudes. What's up? Did you know that today's Halloween? Yup yup it is! I've decorated some places of the house accordingly. I've made fake spider webs out of plain paper. I've used mostly some orange and black fabric, black ribbons, orange and black bristol papers, some chandeliers, candles and some fake petals for the decoration.

Since no one is celebrating Halloween in my neighborhood, I'm gonna opt for the next best alternative, which is watching all the Halloween movies and series on Disney Channel. hehe. So long buddies!

The Secrets of the Brethren

The secrets of the brethren are not yet out and it's been almost one month since the MBB blog has been up. Those who regularly visit or know about the Mauritian Blog Brethren already know that the secret of the identity of the MBB team has not yet been disclosed to the Mauritian blogging population, though various attempts have been made on the MBB forum to know something about them! :P Many speculations have been made and some even believe that the MBB team are a bunch of UOM lecturers! This is very possible I guess. Especially, since the last review I've read is of a lecturer's blog.

Several blogs have been reviewed so far and one of them is mine! :D Cool huh!

I don't know to what extent MBB has attained its aim at promoting Mauritian blogs and bloggers but personally, I've got to discover new blogs, make new friends and it has also helped me "break the ice" by going forward and participating in other blogs. I've also got to discover the blogs of old friends and I've bonded back with lost friends! lol! No, I wasn't paid to say these! (I wish I was!) :D

Anyway, I hope they keep up with the good job and best of luck to them and to all Mauritian bloggers! Let's help MBB in building this wonderful Mauritian blogging fraternity! :P yaaayyy!

Wassup with me?

Nothing's up with me. OK, let's pretend you were asking.

So, I went to the concert with Jev on Wednesday. It ended at 9 and a half PM dudettes and dudes! No need to say I was really panicked. Anyway, I hope I haven't been that much of a spoilsport. You can read Jev's recount of the event here.

The next day, Thursday, I was sick! I caught the cold, cough and fever package from Quatres Bornes' sublime climate! Duh!

Friday, still sick with a bad mood to top it all.

Saturday, also known as today, I'm better. This might be due to the fact that I slept as a log all day, this is saying something cause I don't ever sleep in the day.

Anyway, I'm fit enough to type right now and then off to bed again.

P.S: I know I've had flues too much lately. Weird huh?

The Bleeding - Five Finger Death Punch

Dudettes and dudes, at last the time has come for me to talk about my crush of the month. OK, I'll cut the crap and stop being pompous! hihi, the song is called The Bleeding and it's sung by a band named Five Finger Death Punch.

The story behind my discovery of this song is a quite interesting one. In fact I was pressuring Jevin to look for a song with which I could fall in love and ultimately blog about as my crush of the month. So after some days he made me listen to The Bleeding. We were in the bus but I could still hear some damn things and I fell in love with the solo (Jevin wanted to immortalise the moment with a photo. Thank God I did not let him take it). Then I wasn't really in love with the lyrics; I absolutely hate songs that talk about love and relationships.

But then dudettes and dudes, came this part:

As wicked as you are, you're beautiful to me
You're the darkest burning star, you're my perfect disease

And it made me think of someone I really love and he is...

Noushie! my cat. Yeah he's absolutely wicked!

So here's a complete lyrics of this song, borrowed from

"The Bleeding"

I remember when all the games began
Remember every little lie and every last goodbye
Promises you broke, words you choked on
and I never walked away,
it's still a mystery to me

Well I'm so empty
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me
Well you're so unclean
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me

The lying, the bleeding, the screaming
Was tearing me apart
The hatred (deceiving), the beatings; it's over

Paint the mirrors black to forget you
I still picture your face and the way you used to taste
Roses in a glass, dead and wilted
To you this all was nothing
Everything to you is nothing

Well you're so filthy
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me
Well I'm so ugly
You're better off without me and I'm better off alone

The lying, the bleeding, the screaming
Was tearing me apart
The hatred, the beatings (disaster); it's over

As wicked as you are, you're beautiful to me
You're the darkest burning star, you're my perfect disease

The lying, the bleeding, the screaming
Was tearing me apart
The hatred, the beatings; it's over
The lying, the bleeding, the screaming
Was tearing me apart
The hatred, the beatings; it's over

It's over now...

And a video:

I absolutely did not want to post the video since, let's face it, it's not beautiful at all. I expected something more poetic than just a couple drinking beer and doing things and then the woman committing suicide because, well, because there is no reason at all. Anyway, anyway, hope you'll enjoy the song! :D

Loo's Birthday

The surprise was not disclised! Yeaah! :P and well we had fun except that I wasn't very well. Argh! Wrong time of the month. Better luck this Saturday I hope! We changed the color code to yellow and red cause we were all very much uncomfortable with only yellow. I wonder why.

And we made our egg-less cake because we are all fasting but the cake was yummy as usual! :D There was also peach ice-cream and jelly.

I'm awfully tired dudettes and dudes. That's it for the post. I'm off for some good sleep! Yawns.

Think Green!

I've registered for Blog Action Day some weeks ago and I was supposed to be writing something on the environment for tomorrow, the 15th of October. It's not that I'm giving an excuse, but I'm really out of inspiration right now and I feel that to solve environmental issues words are not really much of a help and we rather need some action.

It's really easy to be sitting in front of your PC and then finding some images and information on Google and bang! You got a post ready! People will read it and say wow! And what about when you get out? Did the situation change? Did people stop cutting down forests or littering on beaches? Did the ozone layer mend itself by magic all because of these words?

Yeah it didn't and it won't! What we actually need is education; educating the mass about pollution can be a better way to prevent it. Most Mauritians who have access to the net already know about the implications of pollution. By blogging about it, considerable changes cannot be brought. It's not that I don't give a damn about the rest of the world but each of us has a responsibility towards our immediate environment and by making it a better place to in we will contribute to making the country a better place to live in and this will extend to the whole planet. Yeah I know this sounds utopic. But at least it's worth a try! wink

So don't forget to go out and try to educate the people around you and try to embellish and protect your environment from pollution! Think GREEN! mrgreen

Some News From PAWS

On the 6th of October, PAWS & The Municipality of Quatre Bornes have celebrated the World Animal Week by organinsing an Animal Family Day in Pavillon, Quatre Bornes.

On that day, Denis Ambroise and his friends gave a Dog Training demonstration, which was filmed by Mike Tedford from Brindol Productions, for PAW's 15th film to be shown on MBC TV, Channel 3, on 18 October 2007.

Some kittens were also brought to Pavillon for adoption, and photos and stories about adult dogs looking for a home were exposed on that day. Some dogs which have been adopted from PAWS were brought for their free vaccination and check-up.

Everyone present had a great time, and the Animal Week was publicised on MBC Radio, during the 'Anou Alle Chiake' section of the 'Zenfan Moris' programme.

Something Yellow

Dudettes and dudes, can you keep a secret? Well I hope you can because this one is a really heavy one; my mother and I are planning a birthday surprise for my sister Loona. Yes Yes a true surprise because most of the time surprises tend to be disclosed 3 weeks or so before the birthday but this time we've done things correctly.

The birthday is going to take place in the basement and the color scheme/dress code will be yellow, yeah her favourite color is yellow. I remember for my birthday everything was supposed to be pink and green and we got the cyclone Gamede as a nice gift. So we celebrated my birthday by candlelights in our plain clothes, just the four of us at home with our doggies and a terrible cyclone. But this time dudettes and dudes, this time it will be a nice yellow birthday surprise with lots of flowers (as usual) hihi, some candles and the terribly wonderful drape that my mum has removed from the archives for the occasion (just don't try to understand). Lol.

I've got less than one week to plan a yellow birthday cake and make the basement windows look like mozaics and I gotta find a yellow something to wear. But but I hope it'll be a success and I'll be posting photos after the birthday which is next monday!

I desperately hope that my sister does not read this one or else it'll be another spoilt surprise in our long list of spoilt surprise. I'll tell you later if I've managed to survive without disclosing the terrible secret of the surprise to her!

Take dudettes and dudes and my yellow aliens! :D

summer, where art thou?

Ah, at last a post from me. Now you'll ask me where I was. I was around people but I was sick. So sick that all the Kohl on my eyes faded away and for one day in the whole of my life (except when I was a kid, but who cares?). So for one whole day of my life I did not have kohl around my eyes. Aaaaaaaaah, can you imagine it? Don't run away, I will not dare show a picture of that. I admire Jev's courage of looking at me straight in the face after this. hihi.

So I slept early last night and woke up in my upstairs room. I did not sleep in my basement. I have not been sleeping there for a while actually. And that's because winter is freaking still here!

Well anyway, never mind this, at least the summer blossoms are in bloom and I've got some new bougainvilleas that are waiting to be planted.

Yeah I know another flower post! But this is mostly a gardening blog among others dudettes and dudes. You'll know what comes of these flowers later and oh, I bought some seeds to be sown too!

Take care people and my lovely aliens. I hope that I get better soon! rolleyes This cold is driving me nuts!

Mysterious Blog

Today I discovered a blog, it's a Mauritian blog trying to gather mauritian bloggers to get together and it is providing a review to all new members' blogs. Well I think it is a nice idea but the reviews are taking some time and for the time being only Jevin's blog has been reviewed.

Well you can also check out Yash's blog post for more details and a concise review.

Do send your details there if you've got a mauritian blog and wish to promote it.

But the mystery remains about the author or authors of the blog.question

elections at uom

Yes yes ladies and gents, the time has come! We'll once again head to the Raised Plaza to vote. I don't know about you, but I just totally love the pre-election days and all the colors and banners! My all-time favourites are the various speeches. I mean how can you look at people straight in the face while making all these promises? But I'm not here to judge.

Sorry for these crappy pictures, I was taking them undercover! I'm not sure I'm even allowed to post them here! I love controversies!mrgreen

Oh and about the slogans, for God's sake they could have been a lot more original!

Nah, I'm not complaining but I think that if you're hoping to be elected in an institution like UoM some intelligence and originality need to be put in use!

What the hell am I talking about? All you have to do is win a singing competition! Duh!
