Mabrouk Jordan!

 Brought to you by Three

After almost seven months of voting, international and local campaigns , songs and ads 07/07/07 finally came, and with it came the declaration of the new seven wonders. To tell you the truth, I so wanted Petra to win, I did, with all of my heart, we kept voting all throughout the past couple of months, I witnessed the enthusiasm of the Jordanian people, the huge campaigns, but I still had my doubts. Around thirty minutes ago I was probably the proudest person on earth, Hillary Swank asked two kids from the S.O.S organization to declare the winner of the second place; Petra of Jordan. The reaction of our minister of tourism Mr Al Dabbas -our representative in Lesbon-  was so spontaneous, natural, real and touching, his eyes glowed with happiness and pride, the sight of Petra on the screen with the word “Mabrouk” typed up with the same font the Jordanian TV has been using for the past century and people waving the Jordanian flag gave me Goosebumps, unlike the sight of the representatives of China who were up on the stage seconds before our minister, they looked angry and scary! LOL!
Mabrouk ya Ordon! 🙂
This day can’t get any better, unless of course our  football team wins the match against Spain that is currently taking place *Fingers Crossed*. 😳

The football team was about to stage a Liverpool style comeback in the second half. I was left shocked of what the hell they were doing in the first half.

The following poem was written by John William Burgon in 1845, which made him win the Newdigate Prize


It seems no work of Man’s creative hand,
by labor wrought as wavering fancy plnned;
But from the rock as by magic grown,
eternal, silent, beautiful, alone!
Not virgin-white like that old Doric shrine,
where erst Athena held her rites divine;
Not saintly-grey, like many a minster fane,
that crowns the hill and consecrates the plain;
But rose-red as if the blush of dawn,
that first beheld them were not yet withdrawn;
The hues of yough upon a brow of woe,
which Man deemed old two thousand years ago,

match me such marvel save in Eastern clime,
a rose-red city half as old as time.

They actually gave me hope the second half that we might win, but anyway, they played well, well erm, kind of “well” 🙂 Too many wells. Yalla tough luck.

Who Sane: Deleted hehe 🙂 The poem is really nice, never heard of it before, and to think that it was written over a century ago! Thanks for sharing it =)
