Dharubaaruge Rannabadeyri Maalam

4th January 2012 at 14:58 | | 2 COMMENTS

Here’s a Google Sketchup 3D Model of the Rannabadeyri Maalam in Dharubaaruge, that I have been using for some time to plan events.

A few years back, I got an architectural firm to survey and draw up this model for me, so that I could use it to plan events more accurately, while avoiding the need for repeated site visits.

Recently, as I have been getting requests to share this model.  Hence, I have decided to do so under the following license, without support.

Please do leave a comment, if you find it useful or, if you have any links to improved derivative works.

Please use it at own risk and gave a great event!

Fête de la Musique (World Music Day) 2011 was held on the 30th of June, 2011, in Muniufaa premises.  This is the third such event, held annually, by Alliance français, in Malé, Maldives.

The core-values of Fête de la Musique is said to be, to cerebrate music on the streets by both amateur and professionals alike.

Wataniya Anniversary Dinner 2011

The Wataniya (Maldives) Anniversary Dinner was held on 6th March 2011. The dinner was in an “ice” themed hall, that featured an awards ceremony, debut of Rhythm In Peace (RIP) – a vocal duo, a DJ, Haisham’s trio, video messages and presentations.

I should note here that RIP was unheard of, prior to this event.  However, they performed quite well, considering it was their debut performance.  They performed their original tracks to well choreographed dance routines, and their vocals were live.  Bravo! for a good start.
