New 7 Wonders of The World & Some Sex Related Entry

**taking a break from Swedish Stories...**

And no, this is NOT a Sponsored Post!

Since I'm a bit free today, DYK that on the 7th of July, 2007 (070707), the New Seven Wonders of The World will be officially declared in
Lisbon, Portugal.

Copied from here:

The commonly known Seven Ancient Wonders of the World were all man-made monuments, selected by Philon of Byzantium in 200 B.C. Today, only the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt remain.

His selection of wonders was essentially a travel guide for fellow Athenians, and the stunning sites were all located around the Mediterranean basin, the then-known world.


The monuments he chose, to be remembered in perpetuity, were:

  • The Lighthouse of Alexandria
  • The Temple of Artemis
  • The Statue of Zeus
  • The Colossus of Rhodes
  • The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
  • The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus
  • The Pyramids of Egypt
All had been built between 2,500 B.C. and 200 B.C.

Now, just as Pierre de Coubertin revived the Olympic Games in 1896 with his modern version of the competition, New7Wonders founder Bernard Weber is seeking to revive the concept of the 7 Wonders of the World with this ambitious global campaign, the New 7 Wonders of the World. The key difference is that, this time around, they will not be chosen by one man, but rather by millions of people all over the world.

The new wonders that are selected will be the people’s choices, and they will be drawn from the earliest time that humankind walked upon the earth up through the year 2000.

It is, therefore, possible that the only survivor of the original 7 Wonders of the World, the Pyramids at Giza, could be chosen for a second time, taking them well into a third millenium of fame!


Picture nicked from this site.

The 21 Nominees are:
  • The Acropolis, Greece
  • Hagia Sophia, Turkey
  • The Kremlin/St. Basil's, Russia
  • The Colosseum, Italy
  • Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
  • The Eiffel Tower, France
  • Stonehenge, United Kingdom
  • The Alhambra, Spain
  • The Great Wall of China, China
  • Kiyomizu Temple, Japan
  • The Sydney Opera House, Australia
  • Angkor Wat, Cambodia
  • The Taj Mahal, India
  • Timbuktu, Mali
  • Petra, Jordan
  • The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
  • The Easter Island Statues, Chile
  • Machu Picchu, Peru
  • Chichen Iza, Mexico
  • The Statue of Liberty, U.S.A.
The details can be found H E R E. Go vote if you eat-full-nothing-do...

So, where will you be on the 7th of July this year? Me will be with my family on a highland. *wink* Yes chen, I know it's your Wedding Anniversary!

The other thing that caught my attention in the Star today is the newly opened Sex Museum right smack in the middle of London, between Leicester Square & Picadilly Circus, the Amora Academy of Sex & Relationships! (Wenwen!!! You have to go there and then blog about it, pronto! LOL! ) The website has got cute lil' sperms swimming here and there...

There are 11 interesting interactive zones, namely, the Sensorium, Sexplorium, Love & Desire, Amora Sutra, Taste Amora, Amorgasm - The Orgasm Tunnel, Aphrodisiac Lounge, Fantasy & Fetish, Amora Boutique, Wellbeing, and Amora Gallery. Don't all these names make you curious?? Now, THIS type of museum, die-die also must go though I did say that I'm not a museum person! Entrance fee is 12 quids (RM84 for visits from 11 am - 5 pm) or 15 quids (RM105 for visits from 5 pm - 12 midnight). And this reminds me of eastcoastlife who helped save a dick today! It was so darn funny although I could only imagine that guy's ordeal... But really siu sei ngor lor! Read about it here! So, who goes commando here? Hands up!! LOL!
