In 2011, a few things happened that helped Oman get into the international news. Here are 2 things:
- One of the people I follow on twitter retweeted what another person said which I found very interesting
To those who might know Oman but not Al-Habsi: Ali Al Habsi is our national football/soccer team's goal keeper and he currently plays for Wigan. He's been so good that he was trending in Twitter.

- Another thing we got know about is the newly opened Royal Opera House (ROH). I haven't got the chance to visit it as it opened while I was here and I haven't gone back home for the holiday. It has been built as requested by the Sultan as he's a big fan of operas. I'm not the perfect person to talk about such stuff but many Omani based bloggers have been talking about it much better than I do. In December, the ROH presented the Swan Lake and I have sadly missed it.
To those who have no idea what I'm talking about. Oman is in the middle east bordering Saudi Arabia, UAE and Yemen.
I could've done better but I have to go back to studying
