    Mahmood great job on the Bahraini Views project; its amazing seeing these entrepreneurs and hearing their stories. I don’t know if you were working with the Ministry of Information or the EDB on this. Have you ever seen ‘How it’s Made’ on the discovery channel? If not watch a few episodes. Why don’t you make ‘Made in Bahrain’ based on the same idea. While watching the videos I really wanted to see the products and manufacturing process. Imagine showing the actual models being made during the Bader Murad video, and why stop there show us Kraft factory, Alba, Awal Plastics all the way to Aali pottery. The production process would be very interesting to see. It appeals a lot more to the younger audience and students.

      Many thanks for your support. The EDB covers the production costs for the Bahraini Views series.

      I would love to expand the series to show what they actually do and how they go about making their products/services, but financing for this is a bit problematic, but that doesn’t stop me trying though!

    Beautiful… I like.

    You know what I don’t understand, Yousef? Why we don’t have this plant ALL OVER THE GULF! I mean everywhere! It likes the sun, it can take the heat, and it flowers a big chunk of the year. When it’s not flowering, it’s not great looking but not bad either.

    We need to sign a petition in support of it 🙂

    I agree. But the disadvantage is that it does need care. People normally leave it “as is” and it goes completely out of control. It gets so big that it could topple walls. But cared for properly, it rewards you back aplenty.

    Like you said, it’s a very versatile plant too. You could pot it and bonsai it, you can keep it as a small shrub and even let it climb walls and beautify the whole house.
