on 1/4/1997 a legend was introduced to the world.. a cute yellow creature and a boy with a red cap captivated millions of people in instants! who didn’t like our adorable Pikachu or our hero Ash? :D
April 1st of 2012 mark the 15th Anniversary of Pokemon Anime Series.. isn’t that wonderful! :”D i mean 15 years that is a lot of time, and seeing how Pokemon maintained its popularity all this years _ and of course still _ is really something awesome!!
Pokemon have a special place in my heart.. i love this Anime unconditionally i was obsessed with it to the point i believed that Pokemon World is really exist somewhere in this planet.. i earnestly collected its products, games, plush toys and figures and also cards, posters and stickers and pictures and many things.. sadly i lost all my dear stuff except for the cards :”(
Pokemon was more than an Anime to me.. it was a best friend.. a sanctuary that i seek comfort from.. whenever i watch its episodes or movies i forget about everything.. and all i feel is a genuine happiness.. you think i’m exaggerating but i really love Pokemon it was there for me in my darkest days.. there was times where i got saved by this Anime.. i was lonely and awkward and everything changed dramatically it was sudden and i was afraid of that changing but when i watch Pokemon.. just a 20 minutes long episode magically makes me feel better like some kind of a spell :)
i’m really grateful to all the people that involved in making “Pokemon”.. the creator and the directors and the writers and the whole staff and teams.. Thanks so much!!
ehm… after all what Pokemon have done to me it will be sad if i don’t do something about the 15th Anniversary so i made a small party to celebrate this occasion.. i went to Munch Bakery and designed a Pokemon Cake… check the cake out! :
awesome right? ah it taste good too *o*.. i strongly recommend this Bakery.. yummy taste, great quality and good service no delays or mistakes :D
partying alone with my sister was weird but i had so much fun remembering the best moments & scenes in Pokemon and most of all eating the heavenly cake :P
i brought a colored candles symbolizing the Types and Kinds of Pokemon
” Fire,Water,Electric,Grass,Normal and Dark “
all i can say is Thank You Pokemon for being part of my life.. thank you for all the happiness and the support you gave me all this years and i wish you an everlasting success :D
back in February i ordered Casio G-Shock and it arrived around 3 weeks ago but i didn’t had the chance to post it.. check out my cool awesome RED g-shock! :
the reason why i picked up Casio’s G-Shock?
the answer is here :P :
YES.. G Dragon is also owns a red g shock! though his watch cost about 3000$ because its a special edition x”D
i bought mine for 99$ only ._. but i dont care as long as i have the same watch as him ♥
i love my watch its really good and i like the fact that it is a waterproof watch.. but its too big on my hand.. look here xD what do you think of it?
there are many models and lines and colors of Casio G-Shock check there website http://www.gshock.com/ its really awesome and i highly recommend it to you, Casio is a brand known for its quality products you will never regret having a G Shock so go buy it and you will be as cool as G Dragon ;)
Hello ~ how’s everyone doing with their short Winter Break huh? :P
as for me, i went to Dubai the day i finished my finals with my sisters and my cousins to spend our long waited winter break.. it was a one week trip, i really enjoyed my time doing lots of things, visiting the hot spots of Dubai.. man i really love this City its awesome!! :D
when i was there my results of the first semester came out.. and i can say that i’m happy with it, i worked really hard and i got what i deserve thank Allah :”)
i called mom and dad immediately to tell them about my honorary results kekekeke :P and of course i asked them for a present for my hard work so they told me to buy whatever i want ~ ~ ~ ♥
on that day i went to The Dubai Mall and while hanging around with my sisters i found this pair of sneakers at Bloomingdales, i told my sister that i want this as the present mom and dad promised me about and she bought it for me ^^ ~
i’m so in love with my Armani Jeans Sneakers thanks to mom and dad ♥
so what do you think about it yay or nay? :P
take care everyone and enjoy your last days of the winter break to the max ;)
Hello, how are you guys its been a while! i hope everything is good :)
back in September i was worried how the current semester will end since i’m in level 6 and the subjects getting deeper and harder and all.. now its nearly coming to an end! to be honest i enjoyed this semester more than the last one.. tho it was loaded with projects, homeworks and presentations but maybe because my Schedule is kinda comfortable and my teachers are nice too! also my scores are good in all subjects so i’m not stressed out because of the finals x”D ( usually i turn into zombie during finals ).. today was the last day i go to college before my finals, now i have 2 weeks vacation and i should spend them studying but i know it’ll be wasted on Dramas and Anime :P
since this year is ending i want to talk a little about myself.. i gotta say its definitely not my year at all.. too many upside downs happened to me personally.. pressure, stress, loneliness, frustration, anger and depression nothing worked right for me! there was a time where i thought seriously of abandoning everything and run away but in the end i stood still and faced it all.. it was a painful experience indeed but i learned a lot from it.. ah the bitterness of losing.. being misunderstood.. and hurting your own pride.. the frustration i’ve been through!!..
i dunno how to express it in words but i can feel a much stronger “me” than before after what i’ve experienced! also during this year some of my blurry future become more visible.. i can’t say for sure but i started to see things i couldn’t see in the past years.. now i know what is it to have a dream.. to work hard for a certain aim.. to start looking to the future without being scared.. i still have a long way to realize my dream but at least i have a plan now! i won’t rush things i’ll take it slowly while enjoying my present :)
i’m gradually changing, my point of view in many things changed dramatically ( to the better of course ).. i’m more mature than last year and the year before, i myself find it hard to believe that i changed this much but it is for good there’s nothing better than being responsible and wise and logical.. i really wish to keep progressing for the best as i’m getting older ^^
my resolutions for the new year are :
Get closer to Allah
Study hard so i can graduate
Work on my Shortcomings
Be more independent and less spoiled
Never give up on what i want
Express myself without being ashamed of the ” real me “
Communicate more with people
Try to understand the people around me ( Family,Cousins, Friends ) more
Appreciate the value of the smallest things that make me happy
Get rid of the negative thoughts and the negative people around me
Nice trip/vacation in summer *yarb* xD
Hit my 500th Anime :P
Remember that happiness is everywhere! you can find it if you are willing to, just have some faith.. don’t stop believing don’t give up on people,dreams and hope cause they are the source of the Happiness ;)

Goodbye all.. take care till we meet again! ^^ ~ ♥
i finally manged to get some free time, i was busy today tho its my last day of summer vacation and i wanted it to be full of fun but i couldn’t help it :P ah i can’t believe summer vacation passed by in a blink of an eye.. honestly i want more! xD
as usual my summer was wasted on fun, laziness and unhealthy habits.. i spend my day sleeping, eating, going out, shopping then in midnight till early morning i sit on my lazy boy tweeting useless stuff, watching Anime, Dramas and listening to music :D
i really watched good stuff this summer.. my most memorable dramas was : Bae Yong Joon’s Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi it was an awesome drama i enjoyed it A LOT because of my BYJ ah it was good to see him as a King <3 and also i fangirl-ed over City Hunter, Sungkyunkwan Scandal… i enjoyed underrated dramas as Its Okay Daddy’s Girl, 49Days, The Thorn Bird… i watched lots of anime both movies and series.. the best was Steins;Gate!!! oh god this anime was awesome *o*.. and as usual i can’t forget my most important summer ritual! Detective Conan nights :P i enjoy it the most n_n ~
and i can’t forget Ramadan! my whole routine changed but it was awesome.. felt an endless serenity ate lots of yummy food and went out and had fun in most of Ramadan nights ^^..
last night my big brother got married.. i’m really happy for him ♥ but i’m a bit sad cause he won’t live with us anymore.. i will miss him so much but all i can do now is to wish him a happy life, when i got back from the wedding i said this to myself.. everything ended .. the wedding the summer vacation the fun.. nothing will comeback as its used to be.. i felt like a chapter of my life has ended.. i felt lost, lonely and i was afraid.. i hold on my dear things and i dont want them to change but i have to be strong to face the reality and try to adapt with changing even if its hard… life must carry on and i believe with every end there’s a new beginning! so i’ll begin a new chapter and work hard.. i dont know what is waiting for me in this chapter but i pray to Allah that it will be a good and happy one :)
Take Care everyone, lets all work hard and be healthy ~ ♥

Boneless Chicken Breasts ( Amount = As You Prefer )
1 Green Pepper ( chopped )
1 Onion ( chopped )
For the Sauce you need :
1 1/2 Whip Cream Packets
3 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
1 Chicken Stock Packet
Salt and Black Pepper and Garlic Powder
1- Boil the Penne .
2- Put the Chicken and Onion and Green Pepper on a high heat skillet, stir until the Chicken is fully cooked .
3- In a bowl put the Whip Cream, Mozzarella Cheese, Tomato Paste, Salt-Pepper-Garlic and Chicken Stock ( its better if you grind it before ) then stir well until it combine to a Light Pink color .
4- Put the sauce in a medium-high heat pot, keep stirring till the sauce become heavey and creamy ( it’ll take 10-15 minutes ) .
5- Combine the Pasta and the Chicken and the Sauce together, then top with Parmesan Cheese and Oregano .

another Shots for my heavenly pasta kekeke 01 - 02
its really easy and simple ^^ you can enjoy it with your family or friends, also you can change the recipe as you like.. for example you can replace the chicken with shrimps you can add other vegetables too but because some of my siblings are picky as hell i only added 2 kind of vegetables.. its great with Salad and Garlic Bread :)

Hello people ^^ ~ how’s everyone doing.. i hope everything is fine :D
i know i’m a bit late.. its almost 2 months since i got back from Dubai xD i was planning to put a review earlier but i couldn’t because i was busy with School projects and midterms :”“( i told you guys this semester is really tough *__*
the last trip was refreshing and i enjoyed every single moment cuz i was desperately in need for a vacation and thank god i can say it was perfect i had great time with my family ♥
it was a 10 days trip from April 6th to 16th, we arrived in Dubai at noon and stayed in Gloria Hotel located in JBR it’s nice and tidy and newly opened ^^
my main goal in the trip was to have fun and eat a LOT :P usually my main goal goes to shopping but this time i was in need for fun and rest so i kinda ate too much food ( usually when i travel i dont eat xD )..
me and my sister are fans of japanese cuisine so we went to 2 Japanese Restaurants, Sushi Manga and Yo Sushi.. here you my experience in details :
Sushi Manga is a unique place, it gives you an unforgettable experience if you are a fan of the japanese anime and manga and the japanese pop culture in general.. its a place where you can enjoy both japanese food and pop culture with reasonable price! :D me and my sister Basma and my little brother Saud went there while the rest of the family went to a Lebanese Cuisine xD
Location ( took it from their FB page )
Manga Sushi is located on Jumeriah Beach Road, beside Chillies Jumeriah, across the road from Jumeriah Beach Park. In the new restaurant Complex (Ruby’s Tuesday,Burj Al Hamam , Duck King, Circle. and much more) on the 2nd Floor.
Tel. +9714 342 8300
as you can see in the pic above, this is the restaurant’s layout not too small or too big its ideal for groups and friends and dates too ♥
what i like in the place is that its full of goodies, good amount of manga books, action figures and display screens and what i liked the most is the HUGE MOE MAIDU SAMA and THE SEXY BUTLER-LIKE WAITER ON THE WALLS ♥_♥ i was amazed by the wall arts that i forget to take pics for the zexy guy i just took one for the maid sama you can see it clearly in the first picture xD
about the food, their menu was really good i mean there was various amount of orders not only sushi.. i can say you’ll really get a hard time deciding on what will you take kekek :P i ordered Katsu Curry as usual, Saud the same as me and Basma ordered Potato Croquettes.. we ordered Sushi too as a side order ( we ate LOTS of sushi that night xD )
the second Japanese Restaurant we went to was Yo Sushi, a famous place for conveyor belt sushi around the world :D.. i tasted it before in London and i got extremely happy when i saw it in Dubai Mall so me and Basma went crazy over it hehehe xD
here you some pics for the layout and the food <3 only god knows how much i ate kekeke :P » the empty plates look funny hahaha
in overall the food was delicious, reasonable prices and full enjoyment… the conveyor belt was so much fun!! :D not only sushi were rolling around there was salads, fruits, desserts ( cheese cake and choco moose and so ) there’s a menu too if you dont want to eat from the belt.. i ordered curry as an extra order :P Basma ordered Beef Katsu it was yummmmy!
lol enough talking about the food i’m getting hungry xD..
in this trip i had the chance to visit the highest tower in the world Burj Khalifa, dad bought us tickets before the visit of 3 days ( because its always busy you cant get in immediately )
i was excited, the weather was good too so we were able to see clearly :D.. it was a really amazing experience i went to the 120th floor in 60 seconds only!! :O.. i’m not good with high places but honestly when i looked down i didnt felt dizzy at all tho when i looked down from Faisalya tower and Kingdom’s sky bridge i was about to pass out x__x.. i explored the place.. ( there was an inside view and outside one ) .. i used the telescope there and dad brought his telescope along so yeah i stalked lots of people hehehe :P
while i was exploring the place i found a crew.. i thought that there’s filming around so i went toward the crowd and guess what i saw!! it was a filming set for a TV show :D you know Sheikh Muhammad Al Arifi’s show on one of Dubai channels ? they were filming an intro or maybe a preview.. it was a pleasure to see him.. i’m a fan ♥.. i actually talked to him briefly, my brother Salman went to take pics with him and i was holding the Camera so yeah i took the pics.. i asked him if i can turn the flash on cuz it was kinda dark he said to me ” yeah sure! go ahead ” with a smile on his face.. he’s so sweet mashallah <3 here some pics i took for him :
as usual whenever we go to Dubai we must go on a cruise cuz mom and dad love it more than anything LOL :P.. we rented a boat from the Marina Mall port and went around the area.. it was a one hour cruise we enjoyed it so much :D here you some pics..
as you can see this buildings are the apartments complexes around the JBR, me in the boat with Abaya on then i took it off later kekeke :P
the weather was nice so it was a good chance to enjoy it :D.. while we were roaming around bunch of boys were enjoying their time.. they waved at us so i waved back to them, they seemed pleased because i waved back.. i was glad to see them happy n_n i love to see happy people the most ♥
in this trip i didnt took much pics cuz you know Dubai.. its all about malls and entertainment.. i went to Mall of Emirates ( it was kinda close to our Hotel i go to it via the metro ^^ the metro station is in front of our hotel ), i went to Dubai Mall and Dubai Festival City and also i went to the newly opened Mirdif City Center… hmmm i went to Burjuman and Wafi and City Center.. as for open areas spots i went to The Walk and i saw Lujain Omran with her sister and her husband the one in Hya Wa Hwa tv show x”D.. i went to Zabeel Park and enjoyed a round in a bicycle kart ^^ ~ hmmm what else.. oh yeah i had the chance to eat Windy’s an old fast food chain which i loved when i was a kid T^T it closed down here in Riyadh in early 2000-2001 i guess .. it was near my home so i used to eat their Ice Cream almost every day :”’( hope it’ll reopen again!!.. ( its located in Dubai Festival City )
also i noticed that Frozen Yogurt are really popular in Dubai there’s a shop named Frozen Yogurt Factory located in Dubai Mall i tried it.. really good i loved the idea of making my own flavor :D.. there’s another shop named Pink Perry.. pretty good too :D

the whole world got shocked by the news cuz all the world love japan!!.. as a result of this disaster lots of associations and companies did an instant relief works to help japan to over come the hard times… one of those companies did a really good job :D its Polo Ralph Lauren.. a major brand known world wide for its great polos! an american classic ~
Ralph Lauren is one of my favorite brands and when i heard about the ” Japan Hope Polos ” which 100% of its proceeds from the sale will be fully donated to Japan, i really wanted it so bad
however i couldn’t buy it online because of some problems but my friend and her sister figured out a way to buy it… thanks to them now my Japan Hope Polo arrived :D
i bought it for 99 USD, you can find it here http://tiny.cc/mmatu if you want to help Japan and have a good quality polo from one of the biggest fashion houses ever ♥ as you can see its a special design different from the original polos
front : the flag of japan applied on the right side, the pony embroidered on the left and underneath a Japanese characters means ” Hope “..
back : a big characters embroidered on the top stands for Hope too, then Japan and United Way Logo and Ralph Lauren which also embroidered..
i’m really amazed by the good willings of all the associations and companies that opened a way for us to help Japan… now i love Ralph Lauren more and more :’)
-Anniversary- 24/4/2004 ~ The Day I Lost a Big Part of My Life...
Today marks the date where my Grandma died due to a battle with Cancer, she was my Grandmother from my father’s side.. there’s no word or even million words can describe her she was a great strong women…. Mama Hessa 7 years passed since you left us :( may allah bless your soul…
i was in my senior year of middle school, i was big enough to realize the meaning of a serious fatal disease.. but my parents never told me about the fact that she have a cancer and dying!!.. i even couldn’t go to visit her!…
Grandma was pretty well known in our neighbor and have a good reputation, some people marked her as The Mayor of The Neighbor hehehe :D she used to come every Friday to have lunch with us… and she always bring candies and chocolates and gums to us.. i was really looking for the fridays because of this habit over the years and even when i grew up i still loved what she bring .. we used to go to her like a lot to play with the chickens she used to raise at home.. not only chickens there was rabbits,turtles,birds, cats,goats and sheeps too.. going to my Grandma’s backyard was like going to heaven cuz mom dont allow pets at our home.. i used to complain to grandma a lot about this matter hehe xD
there’s lots of stories and stuff about my grandma.. talking about them will take so long cuz she was a big part of my life.. she’s one of the few people that really influenced me to the core and she inspired me and still… i wanna become a good person like my Grandma! i’ve always thought this way ♥
if i could go back in time i would go and hold my grandma and never let her go but this is god’s willing we can’t do anything about it… it’s sad to remember the one you love while knowing that you will never see them in life again ( may allah brings us together in heaven.. amen ).. but also i believe this memories are what make us move on!
Hello folks ~ its been a while! i miss tumblr so much its good to back again ^^.. i was busy with school and many other things since mid February, i didnt had the chance to keep on track :(
lets start with March, last month was like HELL for me i was under lots of pressure and i’m not good with pressure so you can’t imagine how i was x__x.. i stopped watching anime and dramas instead i worked on projects and assignments and i studied for my midterms ( i did good in all of ‘em except for one ) ah i dont want to remember anything related to college argh -__-“
but to be honest many good things happened in the last 2 months, my brother got engaged to a really really lovely girl ^_^ and my dear cousin Rana got married last week hmmm also i got a new blackberry hahaha :P and i attended the best party of my whole life it was the bachelor party for my cousin on the 17th of March we surprised her and it was a BIG SUCCESS she didn’t had a clue about it thanks to her sisters <3
in March 11th a tragedy happened! something i will never forget for the rest of my life… it was Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami :”“( i got shocked by the news!! i saw terrible things the japanese people faced a hard times and they still effected by what happened!! i’m sincerely sad i want to help but i’m helpless..when i was watching the news i got a mixed feelings! anger, frustration, sadness and despair i was upset at myself cuz i cant do something for them while they gave me EVERYTHING.. when i looked back on my life i found that my good times and bad times.. lovely memories and sad ones were all related to Japan somehow cuz i grew up watching animes then when i was in high school i discovered a new passion its the japanese dramas… so when i cried for like a whole night!! T-T i knew that Japan was my source of happiness and STILL.. ah it hurt to see the one you love suffer its really hurt!!
Japan stay strong!! Japan you will rise again as the sun keeps on shining everyday cause you are the land of the rising sun.. i believe in that ♥
and in such times we cant do anything but to keep the faith and pray.. my deep condolences to all the people who lost their dear ones :(
now as i’m writing this entry my spring break just started.. i have a ten days vacation and i’ll spend ‘em with my family we’re going on a trip to Dubai tomorrow insha’allah :) i hope for everyone a happy vacation and i wish that April is gonna be a better month for me and all the ones who had a bad things happened in the last 2 months xD
Today is the last day of the year 2010! I remember the first day of this year as if it only yesterday… this year passed by outrageously fast!! And all of it is part of our lives.. How did we spend it? And what have we done? Bad things or good things? What have we learned and what changed in us? I hope you all found your answers as I did.. This past week I reflected on myself and I did find my answers but I still didn’t put together my final resolution… Maybe it’s for the better who knows! I’ll just live and learn my lessons and I’m sure this resolution will find it’s way out as I continue on living and do my best :D
Unpleasant things happened this year but also many good things happened too and I’m sure it will continue till next year :)
About 6 hours left of this year and yeah I’ll spend it studying for next year’s first midterm hehehe :P well it’s fair enough for me! I enjoyed my day.. I watched drama and I ate yummy food and I went out and had fun so why I don’t study for the rest of the remaining time ( ah I’m really good person knows no greed ) xD
Insha’allah this year will be better for everyone.. And for the whole world! and don’t forget this my friends.. here you a small advice from me ^^ nothing really over and if you think it’s too late for you to realize something then you are wrong! Nothing impossible cause as long as you are alive you can do anything even if you take it slowly it doesnt matter! step by step you will reach your goal just keep up the faith :D
Happy New Year to all my dear ones ^^ ~ ♥

This time i’m gonna talk about ” The Smile Project ” that held at Tokyo Dome on Tuesday 14 / 12 / 2010
what is The Smile Project ? Smile Project or “ Message to Asia ” is a big charity event for disadvantaged children around Asia established and sponsored by DATV with the collaboration of KnK (Kokkyo naki Kodomotachi) organization.
Bae Yong Joon participated in this event along with some of Asia’s top stars such as Gackt and Kim Hyun Joong…
it was huge event with attendance of more than 30,000 fans, it’s really admirable how top stars make such humanitarian events to help the poor and weak ones! :)
through this event i saw another side of Bae Yong Joon.. he was always known for his good welling towards helpless people and done a lot of volunteering works and donations but this is the first time for him to take part in public event and thanks to it i was able to see this side of him… just by looking at the pictures, his smile, his look and the way he talk.. anyone can tell that he was sincere and very happy about it :D yeah my BYJ is this kind of person who love to help others from the bottom of his heart…
ah this man!.. i cant help but to respect him, such a nice and caring person make me admire him so much.. i really want to be like him someone can do good deeds to the world.. something humanitarian! this is the kind of person i want to be :)
Michael Jackson, Princess Diana, Bae Yong Joon i want to be a great person just like them ♥
Can i be ?… i hope so! and i’ll work hard to be the person i want to be ^^ ~ ♥

once the number of guests completed we started our night with normal chat then my other cousin Basmah ( we sure have a lot of Basmahs xD ) gave us a weird potato chips named ” potato chips with chicken legs shape ” or something like that despite the fact that this chips is product of Al-Qassim and the words that written on the back ” momtaz m3 alshai “ it was amazingly delicious! and then we ate an extremely yummy desserts made by my cousin Noura with arabic coffee :D
now guess what! finally its the time for drinking beer, to make drinking more funny we decided on a ” one shot challenge ”.. my sister Basmah played the role of bartender cuz she dont like beer and she mixed 3 flavors in each glass xD it taste good » didn’t expect that :P i didn’t win any challenge shame on me hehehe my cousins Basmah and Haifa won all the challenges x’D they show of their wild side haha…. and without realizing it we end up of finishing 7 bottles of beer in less than 10 minutes :O

Hello.. Good morning i just slept for 2 hours and now im laying on my bed since 2 am trying to sleep but eventually I couldn't!.. while flipping from side to another on my bed I kept remembering the past 4 months where my summer vacation started in june.. And I came to a resolution :Summer vacation of 2010 was one of the best vacations I ever had! I really enjoyed it to it's fullest so no regrets hehe :P >> well half of it was wasted on sleeping seriously I was sleeping for more than 15 hours per day hehe.. That was the awesome part of it :D
I've done nothing good in this vacation I was aiming to improve my Japanese skills but sadly I didn't, in the other hand I watched a lot of animes and Japanese and Koreans dramas and I enjoyed it a lot! and my most remarkable thing that happened to me in this summer is my weird yet beautiful fall to one of the best Korean actors and the first Hallyu star my dear Bae Yong Joon.. I experienced love and excitement through becoming a big fan for him.. I'm really thankful to experience such a new emotion.. It's really good to fall in love! That what I felt and what I learned :D another good thing happened too.. It's my sister giving birth to a healthy cute baby boy last September ^_^ happy and unforgettable moments..
Its really sad how 4 months of vacation and fun come to an end but it can't be helped.. life must go on and the new semester will start today! I hope it'll be good and successful one insha'allah :)
now I have to end my entry cause I have to prepare for college and fix my hair.. Not cool If I become late in my first day hehe.. :P
Hello everyone.. welcome to my tumblr! This is my first entry so I want it to be something special and close to me.. since I love Sherlock Holmes stories and I’m a big fan of sir Arthur Conan Doyle and detective n’ mystery novels in general I decided to post my experience in Sherlock Holmes Museum.. I hope you enjoy it :D
Back in April 2009 I went to London in my spring break.. I was really happy cause it was my first visit to this city.. despite the lovely sightseen and the famous spots in London one destination was in my mind! Yeah it’s Baker Street.. the home of Sherlock Holmes that I was longing to visit and explorer it myself.. I was captivated by how Sherlock Holmes described every corner of this street .. it was an amazing experience
About 8:30 am I left the home with my brother and my 2 sisters and went to the underground metro to search for the right train that stop in Baker Street Satiation and we found it without any problem heheh.. it took us about 5 minutes to arrive to Baker Street Satiation.. once the door opened I saw mr. holmes face printed all over the walls of the underground!! I screamed loudly oh my! This is SHERLOCK HOLMES it was a heartthrobing moment!
We went out of the station and finally I was able to see the light and the beautiful fine sky.. but what was more sparkling and shinning is the huge Sherlock Holmes Statue placed next to the subway exit :* .. it was another heartthrobing moment, I actually ran toward it to see it closely and I found a phrase craved on the old marble ” The Great Detective ” oh that’s totally right I kept saying this and screaming ( I totally lost it that day) till my brother pulled me by force to continue walking to Madam Tussauds Museum xD ( the plan was to visit Madam Tussauds first then to stop by Sherlock Holmes Museum later cause none of my siblings are interested in Holmes )
After finishing from MTM ( it was a lot of fun btw :P ) .. we explored the street and took pictures but we couldn’t found the museum!.. after some time passed we discovered that we’re actually lost xD then my sister said ” oops I guess we are lost ” we stopped by a mini market and bought some snacks to cheer us up then we continued our walk hoping that we will find it but things are getting more worsen.. we went a bit far away from the destination and it was already noon and we were worn out because of MTM.. I almost give up on it because of the confusing atmosphere but I begged my siblings for one more chance and they agreed thanks allah xD.. we resumed walking then we passed by a taxi driver and asked him to pick us to the museum directly but he refused saying ” its very close from here just turn right and walk straight and you will be able to find it ” we did so and YES finally I spotted it!! ( it appeared that we didn’t actually lost but we we’re walking on the same area but in different angels XD ) And the distance between the museum and I was only across the street!
I crossed the street with too much happiness filled my heart .. it was an old but decent small shop with 2 doors the first one is the souvenir shop and the other one was the museum where holmes goodies live he he he he :D
I went to the souvenir shop first to buy the tickets and I looked around the store its like I went back to the 19 century! Everything is old and classic the dark brown wooden floor and the off white walls with the old shelves hanged on it.. even the store salesmen were dressed in classic way ( they were so cute ).. I bought some souvenirs ( I’ll post them later ) and I bought the tickets to enter the museum ( I paid for my idiot siblings too x’D they said if you pay we will enter with you and if you won’t then go by yourself! How mean ¬.¬ ) they gave us a brochures contains information and guide for the museum.. there was different languages available but as usual Arabic is not included xD there was 2 japanese women next to me and they got a japanses brochures lucky them ¬.¬..
We went out from the store with excitement made my heart beats grow faster, I gave the guard the ticket and he welcomed us with warm smile and opened the door to us ( he was so sweet and kind when I went out of the museum he offered to take pictures with him and he also gave me holmes hat to wear it.. I took a really nice pic with him along my sister which wore watson’s hat :D ).
As you can see in the picture above the first thing I saw once I entered the museum was the 2 famous hats of holmes and Watson on a hanger, then I went to the first room it was watson’s study as you see in the 2 other pics.. books and stuff related to medicine
After I finished from watson’s study I went to the living room and the dining room it was connected to each other.. it was the best of the museum!! I like the old classic decoration and the frames that hanged on the green wall.. I said to myself this is definitely holmes taste!! I can tell… I was amazed how such decoration created long time ago.. Victorian decoration is my favorite and personally I wish to have a Victorian style home, and the table oh it was an art itself! fancy and simple with the big window which bring the sunlight to the entire room .. then as you can see there’s a pic for the toilet but I notice here that it wasn’t located in the first floor it was in the attic actually but I did put it here because it complete the party haha :P
I don’t remember if it was holmes or watson’s room but I guess it was watson’s room.. look at the bed there’s a black hat and this design of hats usually watson’s type.. it was so small just a bed and small table, the picture on the middle is another corner of the living room you can see the violin which holmes was often play it ( one of his favorite hobbies ).. the last pic is a micro for the table placed next to bed.
A random shots for Sherlock Holmes personal stuffs displayed in the living room.. I was amazed the most of the violin.. its very very old I wonder how many years passed since it first made.. not less than hundred years I assumed @_@ i couldn’t resist it and eventually I touched it.. ( don’t worry It was allowed to touch things hehehe ), the funny phrase that written behind the three Pipes was ” Smoke and Be Happy ” haha my dear holmes was sure fond of smoking :P..
After we’ve done from the first floor we went to the second and it wasn’t experience of how was holmes home looks like.. it was all about the adventures and the cases he took charge of.. and the pic above is for the first room in the second floor… there was a medium statue for holmes while he’s smoking ( this is the most well-known pose for holmes ), as you can see on the walls there’s various frames with info inside it about the cases and small summary for it such as The Adventure of the Gloria Scott ( you can see it in the video which I will post later ).
The first pic displayed three original books which its rare cause it belong to the days where sir Conan was alive and writing the stories! Very precious :O and in the second pic as you can see a simulation of trick appeared in The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist a pistol hidden inside the bible.. scary huh? ( something close to this trick happened once.. there’s a man who hide drugs in the holy Quran!! ).
NOTE : there’s a lot of simulations for various cases but I didn’t took pictures for it but I did recorded it in video camera you can check on it in the video that I will post later :D
Here comes the delicious part neahahaha a wax figures for the eternal enemies Sherlock Holmes And Professor Moriarty.. look at the face of holmes *kyaaa* so handsome with this calm expressions ahhh ♥ ( there will be another pic for the whole figure be sure to see it )
This is me in the museum! As you can see I can freely take pictures as long as it remain for personal use :D .. the first pic is me with the 2 wax figures for holmes and watson ( yeah I know I’m too short xD ) it cant be helped cause holmes height is 182 CM and I’m 163 CM >.>
The second one is me sitting on the Sherlock holmes chair in the living room.. there was stuffs placed on the table next to me and it can be used by the visitors to experience holmes stuff themselves and use them for photoshoots ^^ I picked up holmes hat and pipe while my sister picked watson’s hat ~ ( neahahaha do I look smart to you ? :P )
The last one is me with the medium statue in the first room of the second floor ( neahahaha this time I’m as the same height as holmes :D ), I took a lot of pictures for myself but I won’t display it cause it kinda geeky ( I was imitating the other wax figures and they were bunch of idiots one is screaming and the other Is hanged and so xD ( you will see them in the video )
Finally this is my merchandise i got from the store ^^
The brochure that I received when I bought the tickets.. the information really helped me!
Sherlock Holmes off white T-shirt, there’s another colors and another graphics but I loved this one the most ♥
A magnetic board I can paste it on the refrigerator or any other aluminum surface.. I’m keeping it in my drawer as a souvenir only cause I like whats written on it.. its Sherlock holmes address ^_^
A small Brooch of the shape of Sherlock Holmes shadow ~ this one captivated me from the first sight I really love it but I didn’t wear it yet :* what a waste I really want to show people how I love mr. holmes !
After one hour of excitement our experience come to an end.. i left the museum with huge amount of good memories and I got to see the home of my dear Sherlock Holmes.. I was moved by the big influence and legacy that Sir Conan left for Britannia.. bye bye Sherlock Holmes.. ” I said this ” then we left for oxford street to have lunch there with big smile on my face and good memories will last forever in my mind…. :D
