Congratulations Bahrain on a beautiful Nafoora (fountain), which will has now given a new facelift to the Manama seafront!

I am so excited about this new gift to the people of Bahrain that I really can't wait to get back and enjoy it! It will certainly make a huge difference in my life and the lives of the 600,000 people who inhabit my land. How much have I missed since coming here?

It is indeed a moment of great pride for me .. that we now have a fountain "similar in height to the renowned Jet D'Eau in Geneva." So what if it is a bit smaller? Who cares if it isn't appreciated by a few disgruntled people who are eluding that the money wasted on building this state-of-the-art marvel, should have gone towards feeding the poor, ensuring decent dwellings for the needy and job-creating schemes for the jobless?

Why are all issues so tangled up in Bahrain? Why don't people do what I just did and sit back and enjoy the show.

Like it or hate it, the Nafoora is there to stay .. and I like it :)

Just wondering how many foreign advisors have been recruited to work full-time round the clock to ensure that the pumps and lights work for it would be a disaster should I arrive in Bahrain anytime soon and the fountain doesn't welcome me with its spray!

We all know that the 'locals' are useless at operating such hi-tech novelties!

NO foeign workers were consumed for this marvel, as it only works part-time, like most Bahraini employees, hence, local talent were utilised for this project. (Dutch, German and English contributions were welcome, though!)

What a total waste of money! Honestly, who will really enjoy that fountain? Yeah, you may oohh and aahh over it for.. maybe a week or week 1/2, but then it's like .. been there, done that. Too bad that those in charge don't take more pride in what's really needed in this country. It's a shame really.
