a deja vu thing

السلام عليكم 
& peace be upon you 


This is a korean movie .. which was later re-made by hollywood 

it's amazing how memories are linked to scenes .. music .. scents .. even voices 
this one is a special one to me 
which soon will go back in my head to be shelved forever 
maybe deleted .. 
one can never know .. 
:)


it's a very nice movie .. watch it whenever you can 
and hope you'll link it with a nice memory

Exhibition / 2

السلام عليكم 
& Peace be upon you 


well .. let's carry on with the videos shall we ?
but before we do that .. I have to tell you that at the opening day and just before the Crown Prince gets into the gallery hall 
My lil niece was supposed to place shawl resembling teh UAE flag on the crown prices shoulders then present the flowers 
it wasn't the first time 
she did that before at another ceremony 
so it wasn't that she's shy or anything .. she was quite ready and prepared .. 

BUT .. and there's a real bad great scary shocking one 
the lil girl obviously was too bored and weary of waiting .. 
SO ?
when the crown prince actually came .. she quickly handed the shawl and left 
I swear my heart sunk somewhere in my tummy I guess .. not sure but thats how I felt 
and for a single moment or something like that .. I felt that the whole thing was over and .. well .. that's it .. I could have fainted .. but I rarely do that ya know I can't do that during an exhibition I was preparing for a long long time .. besides I could have looked ridiculous 
so I just went blank for a second .. Ha Ha 

but the crown prince was very kind and sweet .. he said .. I don't think she can reach my height 
ahm .. the UAQ gentlemen are well known for being the tallest in UAE
The crown prince is of course unbeatable on that score .. 
so he took it himself and wore it :) 
and then .. well it was one of the happiest days of many peoples lives .. including myself :) 

that was the first day .. more later ;) 
but here are the videos though 


Part 2

Part 3

and Part 4


Hope you had fun watching .. :) 
Happy Quilling

السّلام عليكم 
& peace be upon you 

في يوم ٢٢ نوفمبر ٢٠١١ تم أفتتاح المعرض الفنّي الأول لفن لف الورق بالعالم العربي و الشرق الأوسط برعاية صاحب السمو الشيخ راشد بن سعود المعلا ولي عهد إمارة أم القيوين 
ومن ضمن احتفالاتنا باليوم الوطني ال ٤٠
 لدولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة 

on 22nd Nov. 2011, and under the patronage of His Highness Shaikh Rashid Bin Saud Al Mu'alla the Crown Prince of the Emirates of Umm Al Quwain, was the inauguration of the 1st Paper Quilling Exhibition in the arab World & the Middle East
As part of our celebrations of the UAE's 40th National Day

فترة طويلة من التخطيط و الاعداد والتنفيذ 
وبمشاركة مايفوق ٧٥ مشاركا من داخل وخارج الإمارات 
ومايزيد عن ١٥٠ عملا فنيّا 
بالاضافة إلى ١٠٠٠ دمية مصنوعة يديويا بفن لف الورق لمحاولة الدخول لموسوعة الإقام القياسيّة جينيس 

Long planning, setting and execution resulted in the participation of over 75 artists from UAE and around the world
over 150 artworks varying from framed work to 3D creations
in addition to 1000 handmade quilled dolls for a Guinness World record attempt due end of year 

أود إخباركم العديد من التفاصيل الممتعة ولكن سأقوم بذلك على مراحل إن شاء الله 
I will soon be providing you all with many fun details but on stages inshaAllah 

على الرغم من أن التخطيط والتنفيذ قد استمر فترة طويلة إلا أنني سأشارككم ذلك لاحقا 
although there are many details before the exhibitions opening but I will share those later 

لنبدأ قبل المعرض بيوم 
Lets see what happened the night before the exhibition :) 


Susan Lee .. can't thank you enough and your hubby Ricky .. for all the help you provided me the night before the exhibition, and you did it for nothing .. just because you wanted to make it happen 
I appreciate that and will treasure those moments for the rest of my life :) 
I can't thank the other ladies too enough to do them justice .. but your attendance on the day of opening was great .. 

هذا الفيديو هو الأول من سلسلة تحتوي على ١٠ مقاطع مصوره للأعمال المعروضه وأعتذر لأنه الكاميرا لم تعمل في أوقات عديدة لذلك لم يتم تسجيل بعض الأعمال وهو خطأ غير مقصود 

this is the 1st video of the 10 videos series that included most of the displayed work
" I found out later that my camera went down and was acting funny at different times without realizing it while shooting .. so I'm sorry that your work might not have been recorded " 


أتمنى أن تكونوا قد استمتعتم وانتظروا التفاصيل قريبا 
I hope you enjoyed viewing the above videos and will post particular details gradually :) 

Happy Quilling 
Amna :)
