Flaming the Green Faerie

 

  He soaks his cube in Brandy,

Keeping his special spoon handy.

Then Flames upon flames,

Igniting the cube is a dandy.

 

A drink for the fiend

Tis Bohemian Green,

The chalice,  The Glass,  the tincture.

Sugar cube in,

The louche begins 

And the fairy swims in the nectar.

 

Drink if you dare to be merry,

Nothing like sipping a Sherry.

For when you cook the Absynthe right

You’ll be a fool of the Faerie.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

More of a recipe tutorial, I suppose..

dont knock it till you try it.

Sahara Noir

 

  I have stood Barefoot in the sun 

Wading through the blushing shallows

In the  Oasis of the Ahaggar Mountains.

My chest is hard and brown.

I have collected the tears Of the Boswellia Sacra 

as they mourn the early Dawn Sun.

I have intoxicated my self,

Consuming the hot molten rum of Dates And Myrrh.

And carelessly wandered off 

In the Perils of the blistering sun.

At nighttime, 

When the moon casts its heavy cool glow

The Ancient Temples burn away the tears

A hot languid incense steams

From the burning sands 

showing you the way.

Take up a bus travel experience from Hyderabad to Anantapur

Take up a bus travel experience from Hyderabad to Anantapur


The road distance from Hyderabad to Anantapur is estimated to be 356kms and takes around eight hours to complete the journey by bus. I opted for an AC sleeper bus, as they are secure for lengthy night visiting. Additionally, Hyderabad is connected well by using roadways; buses most commonly link many of the places frequented via vacationers. Anantapur being one of the favoured places in Andhra Pradesh is effortlessly accessed through bus from Hyderabad. I booked online bus tickets from https://www.redbus.in/bus-tickets/ananthapur-to-hyderabad.aspx and all my travel woes have been reduced. There are a decent number of bus companies offering services between the two cities and creating enough amount of travel convenience for many commuters.

On the other hand, Anantapur is poised in the westernmost part of the southern state of Andhra Pradesh. This location is believed to be very renowned among vacationers given that the whole district of Anantapur is famous for its silk enterprise and holds fairly a combination of historical yore.

I boarded the bus from Anantapur pick up point at 2pm and reached Hyderabad at 11pm. The bus travel was for almost 8 hours where they gave rest stops too. I was travelling in an AC semi sleeper bus that was comfortable and the staff in the bus ensured that all its passengers were travelling in ease.

Hyderabad being one of the popular travel destinations in Southern India, I had always wanted to visit this place. My bus travel experience was a pleasant one!

I waiting to explore the Charminar, Golconda Fort, Mecca Masjid, The Salar Jung Museum, Quli Qutub Shahi Tombs and many others. I also waited to sample the Mughal and Persian style of cuisine.

As I reached the bus stop, I found my friend waiting for me. Overall, it was a great experience of traversing to Hyderabad by a bus!

Best vintage shops in Malaysia and reach them by Bus

 

 

 

Push cart vendors, pop up kiosks and some hidden stores in road side markets and malls in the centre of the city and a few vintage stores have started seeing several visitors throughout the year. These shops are said to have gained quite a lot of popularity amongst the locals and the visiting tourists. From vintage clothes like flapper fringe dresses and suits to home wear items and tiny collectable dolls for the kids, second hand books, designer hand bags, these stores and vintage shops have it all and at dirt cheap rates. The best part is when you keep walking around the shelves in these stores and suddenly find something that is unique. This can be anything like a first edition book or a handmade showcase item. These items are said to cost anywhere between RM10 to RM50.

You can book your bus tickets from www.redbus.my at discounted rates.

Chalk
This store is located in Sungei Wang Plaza. The Store is said to have a large pile of bright trendy collection of second hand shoes, bags, magazines and clothing. Clothes are quite cheap and in order to bring the prices down the store infrastructure has been kept quite simple by the owners. This makes the store look quite underrated however; it is not – thanks to the interiors, the store looks like an industrial warehouse. The story has vintage shirts, jackets, skirts all of which you can purchase at unbelievable prices. Very rarely will you find any designer items here as the store caters only to mainstream local market. The shop is dazzlingly bright and is known to feature a funky collection of second hand shoes, clothing, magazines and bags. Clothes are one of the most inexpensive items that are sold here having a starting price range of RM5.  I found the locals criticising the interiors of the shop but I had a complete different pinion when I explored the shop myself. Colourful rails lining the walls are dedicated to holding jackets trousers and shirts.

Joe’s MAC

This is a unique store located in Amcorp Mall and is dedicated to music lovers. The store is relatively new and has been opened only a few years ago. It is located on the ground floor and is much more than such a music store. The store will give you a flashback of the music back then. The store has diligently preserved old album posters, a collection of guitars, Cd’s cassettes and much more that is sure to grab your attention.

If you have a bent over vintage items make sure to give these two places a spot on your visit list. These stores are only at a distance of about 10 minutes from KL City Centre from where most of the buses originate. Although the distance is short, a Cab ride make set you back somewhere by RM50.  You can reach both of these places by bus in the same time but at an economical price at only RM10.
