Ohh no.. Bhutto was killed...

This is from Reuters:
Dec. 27 - Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto is dead at the age of 54 after being subject to a gun and bomb attack at a political rally in Pakistan.

As a Western educated woman in an Islamic society, and the first female Prime Minister of a Muslim country, Bhutto forged many new paths in a turbulent political career which spanned decades.

Karen Noack reports.

Ohh this so sad I always thought she was such a brave woman to stand up the way she did for what she belived in, in a world thats hard for a woman to have such a strong voice.. she knew her life was always constantly in dangour but she still fought for what she stands for..

Fun Lilliy YouTube Selection The Classic Movie " Its A Wonderful Life"

This Movie has always been on TV when ever I sat and flipped through the channels in North America each year around this time I would be wearing something warm watching snow out the balcony with a hot coco or cinnamon hot cider (which I always buy a can of its mix from Second Cup, I love these things) in hand and covered with my red blanket relaxing in-front of the TV especially if I wasn't on call.. The funny thing is that I never seen it all the way through, I used to only see parts of it but never the ending.. I heard so much about it, they even had it on "Friends" when Febe in the episode about " Old Yeller " had told the story that her mom always closed the video just before they kill the dog.. after she finds that out Febe goes and rents all the sad movies out there, sees their endings and becomes depressed.. to cheer her up her friends gave her this movie and told her that not all endings are sad.. so because I never seen the whole movie all the way through and because some of my friends who are on call at this time at the hospital who might not be able to see this TV tradition I am posting this Movie tonight so we can all watch it together..
This is the playlist link on atarumyth Channel on YouTube if you wanted to be able to view it full screen mode :
It`s A Wonderful Life (1946)

Added: Its a bummer the playlist is not available any more on YouTube that account has been suspended. Thats why I placed a few clips of the Movie on this current player..

Fun Lilliy Celebrating Post Number 100!!!!

Hi every one.. This is my post Number 100!!!!
I had been thinking long on what to write on this special post.. I thought the best would be just to talk about my blog.. what better.. right?
I am really happy about this because I have seen myself change in regards to my posts since I first started Fun Lilliy.
The choice of the name came about from that Lilliy is my nickname and Fun was because I have to be very serious during my work hours and being in the medical field which can take over your whole life, I thought this would be my more relaxed side.. the Fun side.. Fun Lilliy was actually empty for months after I signed up for it, till I placed my first post which was in conjunction with me discovering how fun YouTube is, I had signed up for my own channel, and learned how easy it was to post directly from it to my blog..
My first post I wanted it to be something that reflects me, and who I am so I placed Uzbek songs and videos from YouTube..
The first person to comment was actually my friend IYM ( she had encouraged me to start my own blog for a long time since she had her own blog and really been enjoying it) and then this blog just took a life of its own. I was just posting things that I thought were fun to share with my friends only, to now actually trying to create my own things .. I used to not know what to post.. but now I have to pace my self not to post too much because I have so much I want to share, and write..
I have to be thankful for this blog it had helped me to discover better how other people think.. I got to read blogs from different cultures and it made me more in touch with the events, news, opinions and thoughts from around the globe, not just from where I come from.. it made me read a lot more, and taken me out of the loop of being just stuck to reading medical books and journals.. I am now more opinionated and it is exhilarating to post my own opinions and share them with others in things that I am interested in.. it broaden further my horizons and views about the world and about others.. Fun Lilliy, and the blog sphere fellow bloggers have helped me to keep my mind off my troubles and still put a smile on my face on my worst days and troubled times..
Now I try to think and research a lot about the topic I have in mind.. I used to read very few news papers and websites but now I have extended it to many more.. everything these days is made available online and making articles, videos and links easy to post also made it more exciting to post on the blog.. I take more photos, and this had become a hobby that I really really enjoy.. especially that I am able to share it with others and get to see other bloggers photos.. some even are giving tips on photography.. I have my digital camera in my purse now all the time, I never leave home with out it..
Fun Lilliy has helped me to grow in other ways I didn't think about before.. I am thankful for it and I am thankful for the fellow bloggers who keep me on my feet because of there amazing blogs that made me want to be a better blogger too...
So CHEERS to my next 100 posts, to readers and to all fellow bloggers!!!!

Love in Sri Lanka..

I had heard that Sri Lanka is paradise to be explored.. and a romantic exotic destination to some.. seeing this video made me wonder if it is worth a visit some day..
Also there are The Maldives Islands which some couples go to for their honeymoon and it is close by... which is a dream of mine to go and see.. I love Islands and anything on a beach front.. I think its so romantic..
I have never been to the far east.. but because of my love for travel.. I would love to see a lot of it hopefully in the future..
Do you have a list of the places that you want to see before you die? What is your top ten that you haven't seen yet and hope that you would get to in your lifetime? if you tell me yours I tell you mine..

Born To Be Wild-!! one of my favorite songs on my Birthday!!! to share with all of my friends..

This is the original song by Steppenwolf- Born to Be Wild- Easy Rider (lol..dont mind the 60s hairdos..)

This is the more modern version done by Hinder - Born To Be Wild - NASCAR on TNT

I think this song explains the way of life of anyone who is free spirited.. so I dedicate this song to any woman out there that has a sprit of being who ever she is and not afraid of showing it to the whole world.. saying THIS IS ME !!!!
I think my parents didn't quite expected me when I was born as their first child to be the way I am, I was and still am a handful-!! but I am who I am and my life was never boring.. so I am thankful for this life..

Fun Lilliy YouTube Wed Night Selection The Silent Classic Movie " The Sheik " (1921)

This was the first time I ever seen a complete silent movie.. but I had heard so much about Rudolph Valentino These paragraphs are from Wikipedia:
Rudolph Valentino (May 6, 1895 – August 23, 1926) was an Italian actor. He was born Rodolfo Alfonso Raffaello Piero Filiberto Guglielmi in Castellaneta, Italy, to a middle-class family. In the 1920s, Valentino was known as a Latin sex symbol......
As a child, Valentino was spoiled and troublesome. He did poorly in school and constantly had to transfer to avoid being failed. He mainly did poorly because he would skip class or not pay attention....
In 1912, he left for Paris where he spent less than a year before losing his money and asking his mother to send him funds to return to Italy. When he returned to Italy he was unable to secure employment and everyone was sure he would never succeed in life. His uncles decided he should be sent to the United States where they felt he could learn to be a man.....
he changed his name from Rodolfo Guglielmi to several variations of 'Rudolph Valentino', partly to avoid association with the earlier scandal and partly because Americans had trouble pronouncing Guglielm...
Valentino ( casted) as a male lead in her next film The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Released in 1921, the film was a commercial and critical...It also led to his iconic role in The Sheik and The Son of the Sheik...
Women loved him and thought him the epitome of romance. However, American men were very threatened and would walk out of his movies in disgust.
On August 15, 1926, Valentino collapsed at the Hotel Ambassador in New York City. He was hospitalized at the Polyclinic in New York and underwent surgery for a perforated ulcer.The surgery went well and he seemed to be recovering when peritonitis set in and spread throughout his body. He died eight days later, at the age of 31. An estimated 100,000 people lined the streets of New York City to pay their respects at his funeral

I had seen once a movie mad about him and his life which was very interesting and sad at the same time.. This Movie " The Sheik " was the movie that made him a timeless silent movie legend.. I thought it was entertaining especially the way they portrait The Arab Man, The Arabs, and their culture in those times .. like most legends he had died young at the age of 31.. there is a clip at the end of the movie about his death..
I hope you too find my selection intresting too..
But please answer me this question.. Have you ever seen a silent movie before? What was its name? Did you like it?

Fun Lilliy Question: Do Men Buy Lingerie For Their Women?

When I was in high school a friend of mine told me about an odd tradition in their family (or tribe) that the fiance when he and his family are brining gifts for his feature bride he usually places the lingerie he would like her to wear on their wedding night at the bottom of the wrapping full of cloths or fabric (in those days and till now but less so, a lot of the women cloths were tailored by a tailor, the style would be chosen from a fashion magazine and they used to choose certain fabrics and give it to a tailor and it was made into the dress she wants) which used to be custom to be give by the groom..
I see sometimes some men come into lingerie stores and start choosing things.. but I also noticed they try to avoid looking at people shopping around them.. I know in the west the men are more comfortable buying it I think?..
So are men comfortable buying lingerie for their women? are some embarrassed if they did? do they admit it? or do they like it to be kept a secret? or do they just like that the woman chooses it her self and thats that and would never venture into that world or be seen there buying on his own?
Women!.... what do you think do you like receiving such a gift chosen by your man? Do you mind it if he goes to the lingerie store?
I found this on "Telegraph TV" , if you are a man and want to buy lingerie, this is a video for you "Lingerie: a man's guide"

Fun Lilliy YouTube Selection The Podcast " Avian Flu " a.k.a. The Bird Flu...

I know this is not my usual " Fun " selection but because I was asked to write on my blog some info about "The Bird Flu" which has affected a lot of the birds in KSA, a lot of people had asked me to post information on it.. so I found these informative podcasts to go through ( I am a very visual person so I tend to like videos and podcasts ).. I have also gathered some articles on Fun Lilliy under the tag "Bird-Flu" or "Avian-Flu" , and I will put a concise summery on the subject with in the next few days.. for now just for you to get an idea, I am posting these clips ( by the way it was made by Vets but they included information on human infection which is why I started with part 3 first, and they did a good job on their podcast)

A very informative site with good information on The Bird Flu ( that I recommend looking at) is on which has information to non medical people, but they are thorough. This is the link:
Bird Flu on
When I looked up the WHO site and their updates on the Avian Influenza I didn't see any Confirmed Human Cases of Avian Influenza A/(H5N1) Reported to WHO in KSA in their Dec 4, 2007 report.
They had a nice video on The Global Influenza Surveillance that you can watch if you are interested.
The WHO is monitoring what is being done in KSA with regards The Bird Flu outbreak which is reported to be within birds only, no reports of any human infections. Here is the link to the article in Arabnews:

Fun Lilliy Blog Mentioned in The "Los Angeles Times"

So yesterday I googled "Fun Lilliy" and came across a mention on one of my posts "mission:fashion07 on LBC... Havent they heard about Anorexia Nervosa killing Models!!" in the " Los Angeles Times" in this post "Sexy models take Lebanon"
The show has not been without controversy. Blogger Fun Lilliy, criticizes the show for giving air-time to super-skinny models.
"Haven't they heard about Anorexia Nervosa which in some countries they are actually fighting the Fashion industry against promotion of excessive weight loss...and isn't part of the Arabic woman's appeal...her curves[?]"

Ha ha! someone is reading my posts out there.. :)
I am glad that it was mentioned that not all of us find super skinny models sexy.. I like the look of healthy models not anorexic ones..

Do wait for the film to find out what the bestseller story is and just dont read the book?
Do you see the film then read the book?

The Movie " The Kite Runner" .. much awaited movie..

I haven't seen The Movie yet... but I am really waiting for it to be available, it will be in theaters this coming Dec 14th 2007.. The trailers seem that they have done a good job making Khaled Hosseini`s book novel " The Kite Runner" if you haven't read the book yet I highly recommend that you do (even with the disturbing part in the book).. its still would be nice to read it as the Author had written it with his own words before you see the movie
This is an interview with him :

here is the trailer for the movie on YouTube:

These are the official movie websites:
" The Kite Runner" Official Site
Apple Trailers " The Kite Runner" you can see it in HD on this Apple Site.. which is my personal favorite because may be I am just an Apple fan..
also in the news there is a buzz on the actors in the movie that needed to be moved from Afghanistan to the UAE because there is a possible danger on them for acting in this film which was filmed in China.. here is the link to The New York Times Article:
‘Kite Runner’ Boys Are Sent to United Arab Emirates
Published: December 3, 2007
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2 — The “Kite Runner” boys are safely out of Kabul. After months of worrying and diplomatic wrangling from half a world away, the movie studio that is releasing the tale of childhood betrayal, ethnic tension and sexual predation in Afghanistan has whisked to safety four young actors. They were feared to be vulnerable to reprisal because of the film’s depiction of a culturally inflammatory rape scene.
The boys, each accompanied by a relative, arrived in the United Arab Emirates on Friday just after 3 a.m. Eastern time, said officials working with the studio, Paramount Pictures. The movie’s release had been delayed by six weeks to allow time for them to be relocated. It will open on Dec. 14 in 30 markets.

I dont understand though why they had to use actors that are young boys from the same country as the one in the novel and put them in possible danger like that.. but as in the article the production company says that they will help them.. so I just hope they stick to helping them..
Added: Have you read the book? if you didn't read it do you think you will , just wait for the movie, or you wont do either?

Added: Dec 18th, 2007

The premier of the film was in Dubai, UAE on the last day of The 4th Dubai International Film Festival which was on Dec 16th, 2007 just two days ago.. there were many interviews done by the author who came to the premier and director Marc Forster who said
"I felt the story in the book will shine a light on Afghanistan, and it felt like there was a new beginning, so it never crossed my mind that any of these children would be in danger," he said.
in an interview with abc News " Behind the Controversial Scenes of 'The Kite Runner'
Director Marc Forster: 'It Never Crossed My Mind' That Child Actors Would be Put in Danger"
