They have been asking me to go to the cinema for the past few weeks to watch 'Bridge to Tarabithia' so straight after lunch we went to the cinema which actually had great reclining seats, of course White African's recommendation to watch the film made me look forward to watching it. It was a wonderful film with a hint of fantasy but mainly a drama that would be enjoyed by adults and children and yes it was very sad indeed, in fact I sat in the middle between the kids and I could see both of them wiping their tears quickly in case they are seen!
Walking in the shopping centre we came across a real Chocolate Fountain! This stall was selling skewers of sweets and fruits at £1 each which you then dip in the chocolate fountain, it looked amazing but very gooey at the same time, neither the kids or myself fancied any :oS
No idea what we are going to do today, probably just sit at home and get on with home work and other stuff. wishing you all a good day.

I have a friend who's wife is a very nice French lady, because she has a driving licence she tends to do more driving than her husband and on many occasions I had to travel with them while she was driving, those were probably some of the most stressful times I have ever had, her husband & I would be literally screaming while she is driving, checking her face in the mirror and talking non-stop while turning her head to look at me at the back seat! she would be oblivious to other drivers screaming at her to pay attention and as for turning corners she always remembers that she has to turn at the last second without indicating while we are holding on to our dear lives and the car seats.

Probably like me you have heard of these monstrous chickens that are bred specially for fast food chains such as KFC but have you ever seen what they look like? Check Besheshentra's blog Here and keep a sick Bucket handy.
If that did not put you off chicken and did not make you sick then look at Loza's blog Here, sick bucket anyone??

The film has recieved several awards during its run in various film festivals including:
Winner of the "Golden Palm" Award (highest honour given by jury) and for "Best Editing" at the 2007 Beverly Hills Film Festival.
Winner of the 2006 Artivist Best Feature Film Award under the category of Human Rights.
Best of all this film/documentary was made by 2 Libyan brothers: Sufyan Omeish & Abdallah Omeish (سفيان عميش و عبدالله عميش) .
It will go under general release on the 15th of May.
I am embedding a 26 minutes trailer of this documentary, the original lasts for 85 minutes, best of luck to the Libyan brothers inshaAllah, they need it with a film like this in Hollywood.
