2011 Team Building Day in Ramlat Al-Wahiba

On December 3, 2011 the first shift of IM&T North Team took time-out from our usual work routine and organizes this year’s out-of-town team building event in Ramlat al-Wahiba (also called the Sharqiyah Sands) located in Wilayat Bediyah, Sharqiyah Governorate. Taking into account the number of participants, the team was considered of medium size. My group from Fahud met up with the rest of the team in the designated meeting place in Wilayat Ibra. There were a total of six vehicles in the convoy that drove towards the activity venue.

Tawi Atayr: Well of the Birds

The sinkhole of Tawi Atayr is located in the Qara Mountains in Dhofar Region. Tawi Atayr is Arabic for "Well of the Birds" which is a very fitting description since many birds are nestling in the crevices, cracks, holes and ledges along the sheer vertical walls.

View Larger Map

In early times, local people believed that the giant hole in Qara Mountains was caused by a meteorite. But in reality the gap was formed by groundwater through the karsts processes.

Tawi Atayr is a very impressive limestone formation at the surface level which is 680 meter above sea level; it is 140 meter across from NE - SW direction and 100 meter from NW - SE direction. In the lower half portion, it narrows down to 60 meter across. The depth of the sinkhole is 211 meter which is similar to a 60-floor high building. The volume was estimated to be somewhere 975,000 cubic meters.

Majlis Al Jinn: Meeting Place of Spirits

In the remote Selma Plateau region in Oman, there was a myth known some time ago about hearing noises coming out of a cave known as Majlis Al Jinn, the Arabic term for "Meeting Place of Spirits."

Majlis Al Jinn is the second largest subterranean cave chamber in the world, next only to Sarawak Chamber in Borneo, Malaysia. The cave chamber is big enough to fit ten jumbo jets into the floor space and tall enough to stack them four stories high.

Situated on a plateau of Jabel Bani Jabir (Ash Sharqiyah Region), 100 kilometers south-east from Muscat, 17 kilometers west from Tiwi. The entrance is through one of three inconspicuous openings in the ground. The fissure is an extremely difficult cave to negotiate and it is important that the expedition is not undertaken lightly without professional equipment and guidance.

Fahud Oil Field - A Humble Beginning

The Sultanate of Oman's dramatic economic development over the past 40 years was brought about by the revenues from oil, gas and petroleum products.

Oil was first discovered in the interior near Fahud (where I am presently based), in the western desert in 1964. Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) began production in August 1967. The Omani Government owns 60% of PDO, and foreign interests own 40%; Royal Dutch Shell owns 34%; 4% is owned by Compagnie Francaise des Petroles, known today as Total and Partex owns 2% interest.

A typical pumpjack used to produce the remaining recoverable oil after
natural pressure is no longer sufficient to raise oil to the surface.

Oman's growth into a successful oil- and gas-producing nation had humble beginnings. In fact, it was so humble that it originated from a miserable failure. A geological survey of the country in 1925 found no conclusive evidence of oil. Twelve years later, however, when geologists began intensively searching for oil in neighboring Saudi Arabia, Oman's Sultan Said bin Taimur granted a 75-year concession to the Iraq Petroleum Company (IPC).

The Flyby: Asteroid 2005 YU55

This chronicle will be considered as one of the many significant highlights of Year 2011.

Asteriod - an artist impression of a
Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (PHA) 
Asteroid 2005 YU55 is set to pass between the Earth and Moon on November 8 and 9, 2011 at a distance of 325,000 kilometers or more than 200,000 miles. It was discovered on December 28, 2005 by Robert S. McMillan of the Spacewatch Program in Tucson Arizona. The event will be the closest approach to date by an object which is over 400 meters or greater than 1200 feet in length, about the length of an aircraft carrier. This episode that we came to know in advance and in such nature will not happen again until June 26, 2028 when asteroid (153814) 2001 WN5 will pass to within 0.6 lunar distances.

Asteroid 2005 YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision. Classified as a C-type or Carbon-type spectra and composition asteroid, 2005 YU55′s “flyby” at 0.85 lunar distances is close enough to offer astronomers a rare chance to observe a large asteroid in action from the ground.

In Memoriam

If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane.
We would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it, only God knows why.

Our hearts still ache in sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,  no one will ever know.

But now we know you want us, to mourn for you no more.
To remember all the happy times, life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten, we pledge to you today.
A cherished place within our heart, is where you'll always stay.

Rest in Peace.

In Memoriam.... November 1, 2011

Tropical Storm Keila

Tropical storm Keila is forecast to strike Oman at about 12:00 GMT on 2 November. Data supplied by the US Navy and Air Force Joint Typhoon Warning Center suggest that point of landfall will be near 16.2 N,54.0 E.

Keila formed from an area of disturbed weather just south of the Arabian Peninsula. The storm was packing maximum sustained winds of 64 kph (40 mph) as it skirted the coastline of far southern Oman early Wednesday. At least eleven people died as flash flooding from Keila surged across the desert region. But the storm quickly began to dissipate after moving ashore over Oman's arid interior.  Such tropical cyclones form in that area only during two brief periods each year.

A study released this week says that manmade pollution over India is causing storms over the Arabian Sea to become intense in recent years.

Dhub: the Spiny-tailed Lizard of the Desert

The Spiny-tailed Lizard known by the Arabic name of “Dhub” is a common desert reptile which, despite its dragon-like appearance, it is a peaceful reptile that prefers to flee rather than enter into conflict. It can use its short club-like tail with large pointed sharp scales to administer a painful blow. It never drinks water as it has special glands which help its body to dispose of uric acid. They are mostly found in shrubby areas with ledges that allows for burrowing. They can survive body temperatures of 46°C and display chameleon-like qualities, changing color in response to changes in temperature.

Although a protected species in Saudi Arabia, Dhubs are hunted for sport, kept as pets and even “eaten”.

Top Vacation Destinations in the Philippines

We are exposed to life’s daily chores; a seemingly endless routine of similar and odd vocation. Life is short and becoming boring by the passing time. It’s high time to re-charge and relieve your stress minds and overworked bodies.

Before you think of something nice to appease your throbbing, make certain to consider an out-of-town trip and ensure you step afoot in these pristine destinations that would make you be at peace and loosen up.

1. Boracay – sea, sand, sun and shopping rolled into one. Boracay is well known for its immaculate fine white sand beaches and hospitable folks. Even if you are in the Philippines, you get to see and encounter a melting pot of local and international cultures blending into one small paradise.

Boracay Island, Aklan

2. Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte – a coastal resort town on the northernmost tip of Luzon. Its white-sand beaches and crystal-blue water makes Pagudpud a haven for tourists. Saud Beach is where all the resorts are; the waters off Saud Beach are emerald-colored even during cloudy weather or when its waves are rough. The beach is long, palm-fringed and with less people and on a clear day, one can see the Bangui Windfarm in the distance. Maira-Ira Point is an emerging attraction with its secluded beach known as the Blue Lagoon. Some other attractions you should not fail to visit in Pagudpud are the Bangui Windmills, Cape Bojeador Lighthouse and Patapat Viaduct.

Da Da Da

Some of you might not be familiar with this song. It became a hit in Europe in 1982 and became popular 15 years later when it was used in a Volkswagen commercial. The single was rush released in 1997 to capitalize on its new found popularity.

The full name of the song is "Da Da Da du liebst mich nicht du liebst mich nicht aha aha aha," which translated to English as "Da Da Da I don't love you you don't love me aha aha aha." It was shortened to "Da Da Da" when released in the US. Most of the lyrics are in German with some English words thrown in.

The Volkswagen commercial that made this famous was called "Sunday Afternoon." It featured two young men driving around in a Jetta, picking up an old chair by the side of the road, realizing it smells and dropping it back off, all while this song is playing.

After the commercial started running, US radio stations began getting requests for this song. They had a hard time finding it, as it was only available on an obscure collection - Sedated In The '80s, Volume 3.

In Manila, 99.5RT played this song in Casey Kasem's Sunday afternoon program American Top 40. And it became an instant hit.

Trio (sometimes written TRIO) who popularize this song was a German band that formed in 1980 and disbanded in 1985.

The Other Side Of The Sun

This is one lovely song I'd like to share with you. I first came across this inspiring song while I was driving long distance from Riyadh to Qurayat (1,193 kilometers).

The song was sang by no less than Janis Ian.

Janis Ian is an American songwriter, singer, musician, columnist, and an author. Janis first entered the folk music scene while still a teenager in the mid-sixties; most active musically in that decade and the 1970s.

In 1975, she won a Grammy Award for her song, "At Seventeen".

Special credit and thanks to Crossover70's for posting this song in his music channel.

Fury of Typhoon Pedring

On September 27, Typhoon Pedring (International Name: NESAT) struck the Philippines with a maximum sustained wind speed of 194 kilometer per hour (121 mph). The typhoon pounded the Luzon region of the Philippines triggering flash floods, cutting power and halting daily activity in the capital Manila.

Satellite image of typhoon Pedring
As early as Monday evening, the Department of Education announced that all classes from elementary to high school in Metro Manila on Tuesday have been suspended. Likewise, the Commission on Higher Education announced that all classes in both undergraduate and graduate levels have been suspended in Metro Manila.

Residents of Manila had no other choice but to wade through waist-deep floodwater, dodging branches and flying debris as the typhoon sent surging waves as tall as palm trees over seawalls.

Nearly 37% of the electric service area was left without power after high winds and heavy rains toppled power lines. Extremely high storm surges brought by typhoon Pedring crashed over seawalls, flooding hospitals, hotels and the US Embassy in Manila.

Typhoon Pedring made its landfall early Tuesday morning in Casiguran, Aurora.

Public Storm Signal No. 3 was hoisted over Catanduanes, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, and Northern Quezon, including Polillo Island, Aurora, Quirino, and Isabela. Those areas experienced winds of 101-185 kilometers per hour within an 18-hour span.

Track of typhoon Pedring

Metro Manila was placed under Public Storm Signal No. 2. The other areas under Public Storm Signal No 2 were Albay, Burias Island, Sorsogon, the rest of Quezon, Rizal, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao, Benguet, Mt. Province, Kalinga, and Cagayan.

Rub' Al Khali - The Legendary Sea Of Sands

For several years now I have been an expatriate in the Middle East. I have spent considerable time in Saudi Arabia and currently I am in my fourth term in Oman. Part of my job with my previous employer, a North American telecommunications provider contracted by the national telecommunications carrier of Saudi Arabia was to travel within the interiors of the countryside and look after the operations & maintenance of the Subscriber Remote System (SRS).

There was one occasion that I was tasked with the implementation of a rapid deployment of firmware and software upgrade for all the SRS stations. The zone I was assigned to was the southern part of Asir Province starting from Jizan, Sharurah, Najran Province including the remote villages located in Rub Al Khali.

My first perception after learning I will be setting foot in Rub Al Khali with a lone guide and provisions to last the trip was a combination of absolute awe and thrill.

I am already familiar with the environment of Rub Al Khali since I have read and viewed numerous publications and documentaries about that mythical fraction of the Arabian Peninsula.

The Egg...xquisitely Egg...xtraordinary Egg

Red Salted Duck Egg

Red Salted Duck Egg (Itlog na Pula) is an edible egg dish made from duck eggs processed through meticulous curing method by packing each egg in a mixture of damp salted clay.

Red eggs sold in public market
In the Philippines, the municipality of Pateros owns distinction of being the capital in processing Salted Eggs, Balut and Penoy.

The salted clay mixture is prepared by mixing clay (usually from ant hills or termite mounds), table salt and water in the ratio of 1:1:2 until the texture of the mixture becomes smooth and forms a thick texture similar to cake batter.

The fresh duck eggs are individually dipped in the mixture, and packed in paper-lined wooden boxes. The batch is then lightly covered with papers to slow down the dehydration process.

The eggs are stored indoors at room temperature over the next 12 to 14 days to cure. This way the salt can equalize with the egg’s permeable membrane through a natural process called osmosis. Curing can last up to 18 days. The result of curing is a long-lasting egg that can have a shelf life of up to 40-days.

Balut: The Feathered Egg

If there is one food item in the Philippines that can evoke a mixture of delight, disgust, and doubt it is none other than the renowned, BALUT.

Balut is a fertilized duck egg with visible beak, legs and feathery embryo, a yolk and an egg white or albumin that hardens after it is cooked. Balut is a very popular street food among Filipinos since time immemorial. Folks, particularly men considered balut as a virility-enhancing and stamina-boosting aphrodisiac.

The Celebrated Shuwa of Oman

I have been an expatriate in the Middle East for more than a decade. I understand Arabic as well as speak the language practically. Arab tradition is among the most distinguished and unique cultures in the world. The Arabs value family welfare and tradition distinctly. Among the notable tradition of the Arabs is their love for food.

The Sultanate of Oman shares these unique cultures. I arrived in Oman on May 10, 2007; among my first curiosity was my affection to discover the exclusivity of food dishes in Oman. There are similarities among the food dishes I have experienced with from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Yemen, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.

Shawarma and Sarooq are common Arabic sandwiches I savour a lot. Mandi meat dish prepared the Yemeni-way is equally available and serve in different regions in Saudi Arabia; this meat dish is one of my all-time favourite Arabic dish. Kabsa whether dijaz (chicken) or laham (meat) variety is the most popular and most consumed dish in the Middle East. Samak (fish) and laham (meat) Bukhari dish served in ordinary restaurants is an Afghanistan-inspired dish, they are very popular in the Asir Region of Saudi Arabia. Mugalghal (pot roast) is an Arabic meat dish akin to the Philippines’ local Menudo (meat stew).

Oman is one state in the Gulf Region who savours meat dishes. Among its stand-out meat dishes are the Maqbous and Shuwa or roasted meat.

Before the onset of Eid Al Fitr (the feast marking the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan) on August 31, 2011; I had the pleasure to receive from one of my Supervisors an e-mail containing photograph attachment of a typical community cooperation engage in the preparation of Shuwa. Aside from the well-acclaimed and delectable flavour of Shuwa, I found the preparation and cooking technique very unique and fascinating.

Meat Preparation

A thoroughly cleansed jute sack or basket made from palm leaves is prepared and uses to drape and bind the choice cut of meat for Shuwa. Jute sack is hand-sewn after the meat is seasoned.

The Origin of Pinagbuhatan

On January 20, 1572 the Augustinians, an order of Catholic educators who follow the Rule of St. Augustine, reached an ancient and isolated barrio (neighborhood) through the riverside. The group was led by an Augustine secular clergy named Padre Alonzo De Alvarado and Encomendero (Commissioner) Juan De La Isla. The inhabitants of the ancient barrio were so overwhelmed with the visitors that they congregated all day.

A mass was celebrated on the same date and it was recorded as the first ever mass celebrated in the ancient barrio. The similar date happened to be the feast day honoring Saint Sebastian which was later adopted by the townsfolk as their patron saint.

The isolated barrio became the first established parish and cabecera (head) by the Spaniards. It was called “San Sebastian De Pasig” or simply “Pasig”.

Sunday Leisure At Villa Excellance Beach Resort

During the third week of January 2011, I asked my wife if it is okay for her and the kids to prepare for an out-of-town day tour somewhere in Batangas or Cavite. I was considering a beach resort that will not be costly on the budget yet classy in amenities.

I started browsing the internet and came accross Villa Excellance Beach Resort located in Tanza, Cavite. Since their website provided factual details of resort amenities and facilities, I decided to set our day tour.

Baguio City - Rustic Yet Cosmopolitan

My wife had already completed all formalities for our Baguio City trip. She booked our stay in Pine Breeze Cottages located along Bokawkan Road. The cottage we rented is fully furnished, modest in design and layout. It has two bedrooms, a toilet and bath (with hot water of course), a spacious living with an adjacent dining area and a fully-equipped kitchen. The vicinity of Pine Breeze Cottages was always kept clean and tidy. Pine trees abound the area, the gardens are well trimmed and maintained. It is situated on top of a hill so one have a vantage view of Bokawkan and nearby areas. There is 24-hour security and proximity to city center is relatively close. The cottage was big enough for my family at a daily rate of P2,800.

The Churning of The Milk Ocean

If you happen to be or in-transit in Suvarnahbumhi International Airport in Bangkok, Thailand chances are you will not miss the full-size diorama of a typical Hindu mythology right after clearing the Immigration.

The statue depicts one of the famous scenes from Hindu literature - The Churning of the Milk Ocean.

The Churning of the Milk Ocean tells of the story where Asuras and Devas (Celestial Beings) cooperated to churn the sea for thousands of years in order to extract the elixir of immortality, coveted by both groups.

The Devas are engaged in a tug of war with the Asuras. Each team is holding onto one end of the king of serpent - Vasuki (a.k.a. Naga). The center of the serpent is coiled around Mt. Mandara, which is a pivot and at the base of this pivot would be Vishnu, incarnated as a huge turtle.

As the ocean churned, a deadly poison known as halahala emerged. Shiva drank this poison and his wife stopped it in his throat with her hands, causing the throat to turn blue.

Mahavishnu dancing on top of the serpent Adisesha

The cooperation between the Devas and Asuras was shattered with Vishnu taking the form of Mohini — a beautiful and enchanting damsel who served to distract the Asuras while distributing the nectar to the Devas. The Devas having fulfilled their plan of acquring all the Amrita banished the Asuras out of Heaven and into the underworld.

Bringing Down The Ears

The Mighty Ears of East Zone
It soars 120.0 meters above the ground at an elevated height of 350.0 meters.

After serving Block 6 for 30 years, the Mighty Ears of the East Zone will be retired. His twin pair on the West Zone will be similarly put to rest. 

These pair of mighty ears have corresponded clear and strong. It never undergone major repairs nor overhaul. It has withstand force of a gale, excruciating heat and freezing temperatures.

On June 6, 2011, the guns that fired the electromagnetic waves to broadcast streams of intelligence to support and sustain the industry was turned-off. 

His membranes will never be put into a showcase but rather will be auctioned to be transformed into another mould and form that will once again support and sustain an industry.
