weekend snapshot # 34

Posted by Kero at Sunday, January 04, 2009


Happy Sunday fellow weekenders! How did you celebrate the new year? Over here in Dubai, the traditional revelry to welcome New Year were canceled. The order for somber salutation was made by the Ruler of Dubai to show solidarity with Palestinians suffering from heavy bombings by the Israelis. Dubai Municipality went to respond further by putting up charity donations in shopping malls. I share with you today the snapshot from Mall of the Emirates


While world leaders condemn Isaraeli bombings,
Dubai responds to Gaza crisis with charity.

Thank you to all for your continued visits. I will be blog walking in awhile. Take care and may we all have a peaceful and prosperous 2009!!

that's a great way of showing support--give to the citizens of Gaza which they badly need right now, than give money to Hamas to buy arms.

wishing you the best in 2009!

The Gaza bombing is indeed a sad event this Holiday season. It's a nice activity since sharing is the essence of Christmas.
