I love seeing people dressed in their rich native or cultural attires that depict their cultural heritage.
The beautiful lady’s outfit caught my eye from a distance and by the time I took the photo I observed that her clothing blended with the colour combination of her surroundings 😊
Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

“Beautiful Poetry of Life and Love.” Amanda
I love vivid and vibrant things
I love those shiny bling’s
All things bright and beautiful
Just like colourful Spring.
I love things in calmness
I love their simple quietness
It brings out certain righteousness
Painting your heart colourful in gladness
I love life in splashes
They make beautiful sashes
Just like the King’s gaudy ring
Now, that’s one big, fat bling
I love the calm of white
It also looks as bright
Though it may not be as colourful
It’s equally just as wonderful
Now this is just silly rhyme
I just feel like passing time
It’s Friday night Tra la, la
Oh! A good night for oh la, la!
Colourful, The Daily Post Prompt
On Thursday’s, I share pictures about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.
I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.
Every Thursday, share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time. It could be houses, backgrounds of your neighbourhood, activities and so forth and you can tag it Echos of my Neighbourhood, add my link to your post so that I will get the ping from your post.
Every other Thursday, I will publish a post with the links of all those who participated the previous week.
This is just a fun way of getting to see more of the World around us through your eyes since we cannot all be at those places, we could at least, see them through you.
The beauty of Burj at night as we drive by.
This week’s echoes is a mix of several faces and places. From shopping for groceries to going with my bloke and the boys to get a haircut where yours truly spent some time being more observant than usual to the business of manly grooming.
I saw men threading their eyebrows to make it look less bushy. Lot’s of scalp shaving with a scary blade, massaging, barbing, shampooing and rubbing of scalps. Interesting outing I must say 😉
With the children on Spring break, a bit more leisure time so taking them to the cinema and some skating play time was involved.
Thanks to Kat, I got the idea to include a video of real echoes of my neighbourhood, which I will do from time to time. This was fun to do. We drove and I stuck the camera up to catch a one minute video.
Please watch and let me know what you think.
Thank you 🙂

Thank you to all Echoes’ contributors. I am learning a whole lot from this challenge as well as having fun with it.
It would lovely to have you join us. Regards
Finding pop was not as easy as I anticipated. Hmm! The Photo 101 themes are getting tricky.
I had to look in-house and out-house for any relatively satisfying pop.
My meandering made it starkly obvious that we love rich, vibrant textures here and the shinier, the more attractive it seems.
Anyway, I managed to scrounge for a few popping items *at least in my eyes*.
