There are many names for this universal party. Carnavale. Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday. It’s so renowned that it even has a cocktail named after it. In fact, whoever came up with the idea of Mardi Gras was probably a badass genius. Mardi Gras started as a celebration on the vigil of the Lenten season because one must give up all their vices for forty days straight. They drank, ate, and had copious amount of sex in the given time period at night and then when the sun rises, they transform back into church-going, fasting, celibate Catholics.
One of the cities famous for their version of Mardi Gras is Rio de Janiero. Brazilians don’t mess around with their parties. Carnavale amazingly lasts for a full five days instead of just one. The whole event takes the whole city’s effort. Local samba schools have organized the people who live around the community to participate in the events. Their grandest event would be the parade where a number of elaborately decorated floats with beautiful women in showy costumes dance around on it. This happens in the Sambadrome where you are placed in a stadium seat. However, if thou wanteth to shake thy booty with the parade, you have to pay a little extra.
You can always party right outside of Rio at Salvador where there are less people. However, Carnavale isn’t for the faint-hearted or absent-minded. There will be violence amongst the drunks. There will be naked women, or at least scantily clad women, parading around the streets. Don’t get too caught up with the sights or else you’ll be clutching thin air as your try to get your wallet.

Africa is home to different cultures and different kinds of people. With its vast landcapes, amazing wildlife, and places that just seem untouched by the modern world, the second-largest continent is a sight to behold for anyone.
Masai Mara, Kenya
The place to visit to see Africa's big five (lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and cape buffalo) all in a day. It's also a must-see to witness the migration of about a million wildebeests via hot-air balloon.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe/Zambia
The Victoria Falls lies between Zimbabwe and Zambia and is about a mile wide and 355 feet high. It's got a lot of power in its water and just from the look-out point, it feels like you're in the middle of a rainstorm.
Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
Africa is known for having a lot of places for those interested in travel adventures and what could be more adventurous than climbing up on one of the world's tallest mountains? This may be a high mountain to conquer at 19,340 feet and can take up to 6 days to climb, but don't let that deter you from thinking you can. If you're determined enough, you can make it up to the top of that mountain.
Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
Known as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it is indeed one of man's greatest architectural feats. Built more than 5000 years ago by ancient Egyptians as the final resting places of former Egyptian kings.
This island's location just off the coast of Tanzania makes a natural trading spot in its history. Home to a UNESCO World Heritage site in the form of Stone Town, it boasts of tradional houses, mosques, and even a Sultan's palace. It's also a great place to relax and enjoy the beach due to its proximity to the ocean.
Omo River Region, Ethiopia
The remoteness of the area and the fact that it is inaccessible by 4-wheeler cars made it easier for the 50-plus tribes that live in the area to keep their traditions and customs alive.
Djmaa el Fma, Morocco
In the very heart of Marrakesh, this exciting town square boasts of snake charmers, story-tellers, vendors, and henna-painters by day and tribal drummers and dancers by night, this will definitely remind you of what Africa really is.

Anna: If I remember right, I read some satire article about a man that was so sexy he had to be deported out of his country. This was a country in the Middle East and I recall he was attracting too much attention there. Of course I did some digging around and found out it was fake. But man, aren't Middle Eastern men hot? There's a gallery here for you if you disagree. Sadly there is barely any information about them on the Internet so we have to settle with their lovely names and nationality.
Daniela: There's something about Middle Eastern men that just make you want to stare at their faces and bask in their beauty. I mean, look at their strong features - their olive skin, dark-colored eyes, defined jawline - you could see why they're considered as one of the most attractive races.
Japan is a country famous for its advancements in technology and knack for all things digital. (Have you heard about their new humanoids? Crazy, right?) Of course, there's no surprise here as science and technology in Japan focus on electronics, robotics, and automative industry. Now that sounds classy and all but little do many of us know that the Japanese like to play a little game called chindogu, wherein participants invent absurd things as part of a harmless joke. The rules: the invention cannot be patented or sold, but must be physically existent. Someone should be able to hold it and imagine himself using it. (Laughing at the thought of it is optional) Enjoy scrolling through these potentially amazing yet painfully ridiculous inventions!
Soup Splash Guard. To prevent you from getting soup in your hair. Way easier than just tying it back, right? Bonus: You get to look like an adorable, little pink lion enjoying a nice, warm bowl of ramen.
Shoe Umbrellas. No one in their right mind would show up to an important meeting with a pair of soggy shoes, right? These umbrellas should do the trick, alongside earning you a few stares as you strut down the puddle-dotted street.
Umbrella Necktie. These should go perfectly with the shoe umbrellas. Stuck in the rain? No problem. Just take off your tie.
Rag Onesie. Sick of your kid or baby brother/sister just sitting there, doing nothing while you drown in a sea of household chores? Get them this fashionable onesie with built-in rags, so they could wipe the floors clean as they go.
Bubble Wrap Keychain. That's right. Never-ending bubble wrap. Come to think of it, this is the opposite of a ridiculous invention. Heck, I want one of these. Scratch that, I want twelve of these. There is nothing quite like the satisfaction you get from hearing a symphony of plastic bubbles pop at your control.
Roll-on Butter Stick. You will never have to use a butter knife again. What a relief! This changes the whole sandwich game. (I wonder if they have this in other flavors like peanut butter or Nutella?) Please do yourself a favor and keep it away from your lip balm, though.
Broom and Dustpan Slip-ons. For those who pick things up off the floor with their feet. Finally, a chore you could finish with ease and possibly enjoy. Put on some music you could dance to for the full experience.
Toilet Paper Roll Hat. May be used for:
Cuddle Buddy Pillow. For lonely nights without the bae. Now you can watch The Notebook without getting jealous of Rachel McAdams. You're a pillow, I'm a pillow.
Silent Karaoke. Perfect for aspiring singers who aren't quite ready to let the world know of their blinding talent.
The soccer bug may have bitten almost everyone due to the 2014 FIFA World Cup but I think we should start talking about another sporting event that's happening soon. That's right, the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix. Singapore is extremely lucky to be one of the few Asian countries who can host this very special event considering that most F1 races only take place in European countries. Racing isn't the most popular sport (or the most interesting for most people) but don't fret because Reinvent is here to explain everything you need to know about the coolest F1 event in Asia.
What is it?
The Singapore Grand Prix is a three day event which is the first racing event in Formula One history to feature night racing. It's called an event and not just a competition because it's not all about the actual sport; they also offer off-track activities which include Karting Training Programs, exclusive Pit Lane tours, and concerts showcasing at least 3 performers every night. Another thing to look forward to are the infamous parties that happen after the actual racing.
Where and When does it happen?
As the name suggests, this annual event takes place in Singapore. More specifically, at the Marina Bay Street Circuit which is the first street circuit in Asia. It passes several landmarks like the Singapore Flyer and has the most number of corners compared to other circuits (that's 23, if you're wondering.) While the concerts and other off-track affairs occur at the different "Zones" located near the tracks. It has been a yearly event since 2008 and occurs on the third weekend of September.
Why should I go and watch it?
Aside from being able to see the expensive and gorgeous cars being driven by equally gorgeous drivers on a modern track, you'll also be able to watch international acts! Yup, one ticket not only allows you to see the racing action firsthand but you also get to watch amazing acts such as Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Shakira, and Linkin Park just to name a few. You can even mingle with the racers during the day (there are special gatherings that you could compare to meet and greet sessions with your favorite band, but better.) If you're a die hard racing fan from Asia but you can't travel to Europe then this is the perfect way to get your F1 fix! It's closer to home and you might even have a better time considering all the other activities that accompany the races!
How can I attend it?
You can get your tickets and other packages here. If you're a first timer and you do attend this year (or the following year), here are a some tips to make your trip more enjoyable:
1. It can get really loud in the grandstands so wear earplugs!
2. Always wear your lanyard pass (with the correct day!) and appropriate clothing since it's usually warm and humid, even at night.
3. Plan your trip around the city/track and make sure you have a map so you don't get lost and end up wasting your time.
