A Little Known Fact About Russia

Assalamualaikum wbt

When I was browsing for the Aurora Borealis phenomena in Murmanks region, I found this site. No matter what, I will find the best date when the activeness is frequent and it’s seen clearly on the sky. Three weeks ago, it’s said that it would be on the sky by end of January. So we were planning to go there on the 27th. We will take train and the journey takes approximately about 39 hours from Moscow. But today, my friend told me that the schedule was changed. The activeness calender was withdrawn due to the weather. Meaning that if we proceed to go on the date, we can’t see anything over there.

So, I kept browsing for more info. But suddenly, I found this site. Oh My God! This is truly Russia. This is the hidden military territory which people were talking about when I first arrived here. I thought it was a mere story. Or a tale. And I never had any intention to know more about this. My father once asked me to explore this side of activity. About their technology and the world’s acceptance towards their products. He wanted to know about it after telling him about my visit to Victory Park long time ago (where I witnessed submarines, tanks and many more from the World War ii). But still, I didn’t put much interest to dig out more about it. Unless if I were a boy, I think I would have explored all War Museums in Moscow, visited the Submarines Museum and been to the Aerospace Museum. But I didn’t.

The info I read in the site did suprise me. My mind started to imagine how was the place built by people when we know that it is located far in the northen area, isolated from concrete sources to develop the small town. What happened to the abandoned ships and submarines and are they going to leave them there, sink silently into the sea? And the existance of the nuclear fuel is really surprising. I thought it’s only in Chernobyl (and they are setting up another one in Belarus and soon to complete). This fact does open my eyes about Russia.

Let’s do the Math. How stupid I am to know about this little KNOWN fact about Russia only after 5 years and the half stranded in this country. Poor me. Poor me.

    KS sangat suka art museums. KS dah pergi hampir semua art museums di Moscow. Sama ada lukisan, poetry, portraiture atau sculpture. Yang historical pun suka. Sangat suka. Boleh habiskan masa berjam-jam. Tapi yang berkaitan perang-perang and military stuffs ni tak berapa. KS pernah pergi 2 je kot. Huhu.

    MakNdak had seen the Aurora.. beautiful in Norway..the Norsk called it Blue Light..

    Aurora itu buatan Allah
    Kapal selam, kereta kebal buatan manusia

    Senjata Muslim zikir sebut Allah
    Tidak tertanding senjata manusia

    Food for your thought

    Salam Sarah,

    Salah satu impian hidup saya ialah untuk melihat aurora borealis di di satu tempat terpencil di Alaska seperti yang saya baca di dalam buku yang mencatatkan siri kelana mendiang Charles Kuralt ke seluruh Amerika.

    bila nak g rusia ni. kat jordan, muzium tak best. aiyya. ada je satu yang best, muzium kereta king hussein. fuh, best. ada lebih 80 koleksi kereta king hussein, former king. tapi, dari satu sudut, boleh dikatakan dan tak boleh disanggah, yang dia ni suka membazir sedang rakyat terpinggir. Pemimpin Arab, memang macam tu. Aish.

    Kak Izzah:
    Yang saya maksudkan tu ialah part yang hidden military camp di Murmanks tu. Selama ni ingatkan orang cakap2 je la. Rupanya betul2 wujud. Orang lain semua tau, saya je kot yang baru tau. Hehe.

    Mak Andak:
    Yup yup. U did tell me the story long ago. In Russia, they call it The Northen Light. Thanks for the reminder. And thanks for the sweet poem!!!

    Wow. U learn some Malay language. So I should answer u: Khabar baik.

    Bro Iskandar:
    Oh. Dalam buku tu ada dicatatkan pasal Aurora Borealis ye? Saya tak tersampai nak ke US tu kot. Alang2 dah di sini, gagahla jugak saya nak ke Murmanks tu walaupun jauh. Tu je la yang saya mampu.

    Beli kobis dak?? Hahha =p

    Pikir Sendiri:
    Thanks a lot for the wish.


  20. Sarah Mohd Shukor says on :

  21. Sarah Mohd Shukor says on :

    Nampak macam gempak je kan Rusia ni dengan segala military stuffs yang dia ada ni. Hehe. Tapi orang sini bila cakap bab2 senjata semua ni, diorang memang bangga. Sebab memang negara dia hebat. Cuma pasal fakta yang ni, tentang hidden military territory ni KS baru je tau kesahihannya. Lambat betul KS ni kan.

    Waa. Terima kasih Khairul! Terima kasih banyak2 =)
