Thaipusam

Mais uma manha no escritorio, a boss esta numa reuniao por isso aproveito para escrever. Esta semana foi mais calma e dedicada a descobrir a cidade. Finalmente tive um fim de semana a serio, mesmo depois de ter engonhado a resolver o trabalho pendente. Sabado foi o dia dedicado a cultura, neste dia celebrou-se o Thaipusam, um festival em honra de um dos filhos de Shiva. O festival comeca num templo lindo de morrer, recheado de figuras esculpidas no telhado. Mas ali o que impressiona e mesmo o ambiente, milhares de hindus vestidos com roupas coloridas e brilhantes, o cheiro a incenso que e tao abundante que penetra em todos os nossos poros e comeca a provocar zumbido na cabeca. Dentro do templo ha pequenos altares com oferendas aos deuses e ha batuques de tambor em tudo quanto e canto. Veem-se varios aglomerados de pessoas em volta de outra com uma armacao de metal em volta. Quando nos aproximamos descobrimos o que verdadeiramente se passa. As familias entoam canticos aos familiares, cantam musicas de encorajamento enquanto os perfuram com variadissimos objectos como anzois, espetos, etc em varias zomas do corpo como as bochechas, a lingua, na testa, nas costas, no peito ou na barriga. Sim meus meninos vi senhores a serem perfurados com ferros na lingua, como mostra a imagem e nao deitarem uma pinga de sangue e sem se queixarem….depois de devidamente cheios de furos na carne varios homens levantam as estruturas de metal decoradas, prendem uma especie de arame a cada ‘piercing’ que acabaram de fazer e danca ao som dos batuques. Esta cerimonia tem inicio meses antes quando eles se comecam a purificar para serem capazes de cumprir a tarefa. Supostamente nao sangram porque o seu Deus esta dentro deles e da-lhe forca para continuar…dizem… Aquilo e a loucura para a familia toda e como se nao bastasse ainda vao carregar tudo aquilo as costas ate ao outro templo que fica a Kms de distancia…Era 1 da manha ainda estavam a chegar ao templo…O que tenho a dizer e que no minimo e impressionante as coisas que fazem a eles proprios em honra do deus, a quantidade de incenso que estava naquele sitio, a quantidade de pessoas que vai a este festival e toda a celebracao em volta…bem ja experienciei e nao me parece que volte…

Se alguem decidir ver este festival, please n facam como eu e levem vestidos, ao menos que tenham umas calcas por baixo, ou caso contrario as hindus olharao para voces de lado e os hindus olharao bem de frente…

O resto do tempo foi passado a descobrir a Arab Street, passo num instante da India para Marrocos num instante, onde as esplanadas estao a abarrotar de pessoas a conversar alto, com musica e a fumar chicha…

Domingo foi dia de ir a praia, mesmo que o sol nos tivesse a fazer caretas e se recusasse a aparecer e depois foi ver-nos passear por Sentosa, a ilha do sitio com praia….

Mais novidades daqui ?A minha luta com pauzinhos esta cada vez mais facil… Descobri o sitio para se estar a beber cafe numa esplanada rente ao rio, para se sair a noite e beber um copo ou entao ate dancar ate as tantas. Vao ser varias horas passadas ali, a experimentar novos pratos e a escrever milhoes de cartas para Portugal e outros paises do mundo.

Por aqui ja me sinto menos alien, nao tenho registado baratinhas em casa, embora de vez em quando seja presenteada com uma osga ou duas…e no outro dia percebemos que as ratazanas andam pelo tamanho de coelhos medios, grande, gordas e com um rabo nojento…nao, nao tinhamos disto em casa, encontramos na rua e gritamos feitas loucas enquanto um casal que se assustou com os nossos gritos nos olhou com um ar reprensivo, do genero ‘sao so ratinhos ‘…

Para alem da convivencia pacifica com a bicheza esta gente nao reclama de nada, nao se chateia se e abalroado no metro, ou se lhe passam a frente na fila. Teem todos os ultimos modelos de telemovel, estao sempre a mandar mensagens, que escrevem com as duas maos, e vao o metro inteiro a olhar para o chao, os chineses nao olham as pessoas de frente e considerado um desafio. Este post ja e uma colagem de coisas, e pior, sem acentos porque este teclado nao conhece essas coisas. Ai vou enfiar-me de novo em tabelas de excel.

Everything about horse betting

Horse racing's traditions give it unique flavor and character, but to be successful, it must be willing to evolve to catch up to the present and to meet the future. We most certainly hope that it does.
[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horse bet[/url]
Another sad fact is that more than 400 in-racing horses die every year in the UK alone. They may die on the course itself, from injuries received in training or be killed by their owners - considered no longer commercially viable.


The Triple Crown, like so many of our best traditions, wasn't created, it grew into being. During the late 1800's three different tracks created races to test the new crop of three year olds. These three races, the Belmont Stakes, the Preakness and the Kentucky Derby were held in the same year for the first time in 1875. It wasn't until 44 years later that Sir Barton (1919) became the first horse to win all three. The term, Triple Crown, wasn't coined until 1930 when Daily Racing Form's columnist, Charles Hatton, used it while covering Gallant Fox's winning efforts.

[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horce racing bets[/url]
Sweetnorthernsaint ridden by Kent Desormeaux was favored to win the Derby, but finished a disappointing seventh by 13 lengths. That though, after a bumped start and being steadied before finally tiring. With a lifetime 3 wins out of 7 starts, all 3 have come this year, and the shorter distance of the Preakness might be more to his liking.

If you’re like me when you first saw the term “arbitrage sports betting” you just said, “huh?” You may even be reading this article because you were wondering. It is a relatively little method that can actually allow you to make money no matter who wins or loses. Kind of like heads I win, tails I win!

Another way of identifying the best sports betting odds is to examine the money lines on the various sports books online. The quickest and simplest way to understand how to compute the odds and comprehend how the money line bet works is to take into consideration the amount of money one would have to bet in order to win one hundred dollars. Normally this figure is shown as a negative and a positive with the negative number indicating what one must wager to win x amount of dollars and the positive showing what one would win.

With this movement the United States has taken a different approach to online gambling. Whereas other countries are working with these services to regulate them, the United States is attempting to prohibit them once and for all. By doing this they are missing out on the ability to tax internet gambling instead of getting rid of it entirely. Conservative estimates have shown that taxing these services could make the government in upwards of $6 billion a year.

The problem is, most people wouldn't know where to begin if they had to devise their own worthwhile Selection System, and those clever enough to be able to do so simply wouldn't have the time to do it (it is an arduous task). In fact, there are only two groups of people who do bother to spend the time and money to do so properly: (i) Bookies and (ii) sports tipsters. However, while you can be 100% sure that all Bookies operate a good Selection System (but they won't share it with you), you can be sure that 99% of so-called expert tipsters don't. The number of tipsters doing a proper job on the Internet can probably be counted on the fingers of just two hands.

1.) Some game sites post information about the number of players currently playing at a particular game of bingo. Accordingly, you have to plan the number of bingo cards in your online bingo game. More numbers of cards yield better results when the number of players is low. Your winning percentage is then higher.
[url=http://www.bingokisses.com]free bingo[/url] play bingo One of the winning systems is to play with fewer bingo cards. Most bingo players play with many bingo cards to increase their chances of a win at the game. However, playing with fewer cards provides the best odds of the game as your chances of making a big win are higher. Another bingo system in action functions according to the theory of probability. Balls from a bingo machine come out at random, which means that no one can predict emergence of any particular number. In the same vein, you can employ the probability theory to gauge the next number to emerge from the machine. Random drawing of numbers means laws of probability govern selection of balls and their appearance in a uniform distribution pattern.

With so many different casino and gaming sites on the Internet, it is difficult to know which ones are legitimate and which ones are not. After all, if you want to join the gaming community, you have to decide whether you want to play for money or for fun and prizes. If the former, it is more pertinent to find out what sites are legitimate since you do not want to invest cash into something that is not going to give you a return on your investment.
bingo online
Bingo is usually played in special halls where many players can play at the same time. The actual fun is the tension building up seeing other players closer and closer to the finish line. However, with the advent of the Internet, BINGO has gone online as well. There are many ways to play on the net, though the basics remain the same. You will have to complete a given pattern before anyone else in order to win. Over the net, you need not shout the computer will flash it out for you. Some online games also have chat attached to the games where you can speak with other players online and have fun right from your home, office or any other place where you can get on the net. Chatting is a great way to meet new people and pick up the tips and tricks.

5.) However, if you are playing very large jackpot games, it is better to play with fewer cards. Huge jackpots attract numerous players and your winning odds are low. Hence, you can make your money last longer by playing few cards. [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]online free bingo[/url] If the second called number is say N36, probabilities of the next number not ending in 2 or 6 is more. The first six called numbers could have different digit endings. Thereafter, there could be pairing of one or more of such ending digits. [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]play free bingo[/url] The easiest way to avoid falling victim to a scam is to know the site on which you choose to play. One of the ways this can be accomplished is to talk to other people who play online Bingo to get a feel for the sites they use and what kind of experiences they have had with the site. In most cases, word of mouth is going to be your most accurate means of determining the legitimacy of a Bingo or any other gaming site. Of course, if you are using a free site, knowing about the experiences that others have had with the site is not quite as important, although you do not want to waste your time with something that is unlikely to produce any beneficial results. Of course, a free site is not going to give you much in the way of monetary compensation, and the prizes may be minimal, but for those who are addicted to the game, the challenge is there.

Bingo is a beautiful game of luck, which involves patience, rapid coordination between hearing and searching out the numbers and lots of fun. As with all gambling bingo is totally addictive and you should be careful of its grip on you!
