5 Cool things by Thai Daro

Big Muscles
Do you wish you had bigger muscles?  It’s no simple task, but there are several things you can do to achieve your goal.  Head to the gym every weekend, or better yet every day, and you’ll grow muscles quickly.  In addition, eat meat and drink milk for protein.  Getting enough sleep each night also helps.  Lately, I’ve been working out every night, and it has become my favourite form of exercise.  Getting more muscular has made me healthier and more powerful. It makes me feel respected by everyone.

Hey!  Would you believe me if I told you that an ugly girl or boy could become pretty or handsome without using make-up?  Adobe Photoshop is a computer software program that allows you to change and manipulate photographs to your liking.  Don’t want your friends to see those embarrassing pimples on your face?  Fill in the area of the photograph with the colour of your skin and they’ll never notice!  Newspapers, magazines and posters use this program to produce flawless advertisements, crop pictures and create interesting backgrounds.  I always use the program to edit my friends’ photos. Photoshop is available in CD form at any software outlet.  Try it, you’ll like it.


Do you like painting pictures?  If so, try painting a picture and mount it in your room, I guarantee you’ll feel proud of yourself.  The art of painting requires many tools: brushes, palettes and, most important, colour.   Vivid colours are essential for any artist.  Painting pictures can help us relieve boredom and stress, as well express our love for someone.  The more you paint, the more your skills improve.  If your paintings are popular, you may be able to sell some and get famous. Personally, my favourite painting is the Mo​na​ Lisa.  From a distance, the painting looks very “real”, and the artist was extremely adept in his use of colour.  I wish I could paint such a realistic picture.

Avatar (Hollywood movie)
I LOVED this movie.  The director was so creative, the special effects were literally unbelievable and the plot was intriguing.  In case you missed it, Avatar is a 2009 American science-fiction film of epic proportions, written and directed by James Cameron.  It is set in a future where humanity has almost destroyed planet Earth, and intrepid space explorers discover a very similar planet, with water,  amazing animals and vast forests.  Some humans want to take this place for themselves at the expense of the Na’vi, a strange race already living there. The Na’vi are similar to humans, with their own language, culture and religion.  They are also blue and 10 feet tall.  Avatar is an old movie by now, but still popular.  OK, let’s try it!

Photography exhibition

Have you ever joined a photography exhibition?  The events allow photographers to display their original work: photos of places, portraits of people, fashion photography, just about anything.  Some exhibitions focus on the emotional spectra of people, capturing sadness and joy, humour and jealousy with the lens of the camera.  At most exhibitions there will be red wine.  Grab a glass and browse the photos.  Finally, the  photographer will sometimes give away some of his work in a lottery.  At least this was my experience at the Rooster Kool photography exhibition.  Let’s go to get a similar experience together!
