The Lost City of Pompeii | Pompeii Movie

selamat tengah malam- wahai Penang yang suram.
sambil mendengar lagu Dengarlah Bintang Hatiku by De Meises untuk kali sejutanya.
bak kata Fakha- lagu belum lagi famous kat radio, awak dah jemu dengar. mana taknya, asyik ulang lagu yang sama tanpa peduli perasaan lagu yang lain.
well said-- Bruno Mars tetap di hati.

last few days, I went to the cinema with my friends. entah. benda tak rancang pun. tiba-tiba je rasa macam  nak jalan-jalan kat Queensbay (since my private photography class been cancelled). tak ada apa nak cari pun, so, tengok wayang ok kot? selain teman kawan cari kasut-bag-baju-dan beberapa barang yang lain.

habis aje tengok cerita tu, masing-masing duk google apa kejadahnya sejarah Pompeii ni weh? haaa. is that a real true story? or, what?! ada harapan nak dapat tengok movie ni lagi sekali. soon baby, soon! 

Pompeii- bandar yang musnah dan binasa disebabkan oleh letusan gunung berapi Vesuvius yang 'mengamuk' selama 2 hari pada 79M. SubhanAllah. walaupun hanya cerita, tapi, amat berkesan dalam hati ni. kuasa Allah, tak siapa pun yang mampu nak halang. tak siapa pun yang mampu nak elak. kun fayakun. maka, jadilah! gunung yang selama ini teguh berdiri boleh hancur dalam sekelip mata, apatah lagi manusia. tiada yang mustahil dalam dunia ini dengan adanya kuasa Allah.....

"The city of Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune ofPompei. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Researchers believe that the town was founded in the seventh or sixth century BC and was captured by the Romans in 80 BC. By the time of its destruction, 160 years later, its population was probably approximately 20,000, with a complex water system, an amphitheatre, gymnasium and a port.

The eruption was cataclysmic for the town. Evidence for the destruction originally came from a surviving letter by Pliny the Younger, who saw the eruption from a distance and described the death of his uncle Pliny the Elder, an admiral of the Roman fleet, who tried to rescue citizens. The site was lost for about 1,500 years until its initial rediscovery in 1599 and broader rediscovery almost 150 years later by Spanish engineerRocque Joaquin de Alcubierre in 1748.[1] The objects that lay beneath the city have been well preserved for centuries because of the lack of air and moisture. These artifacts provide an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. During the excavation, plaster was used to fill in the voids between the ash layers that once held human bodies. This allowed one to see the exact position the person was in when he or she died.

Pompeii has been a tourist destination for over 250 years. Today it has UNESCO World Heritage Site status and is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy, with approximately 2.5 million visitors every year."


"By the 1st century AD, Pompeii was one of a number of towns located near the base of the volcano, Mount Vesuvius. The area had a substantial population which grew prosperous from the region's renowned agricultural fertility. Many of Pompeii's neighboring communities, most famously Herculaneum, also suffered damage or destruction during the 79 eruption. The eruption occurred on August 24, just one day after Vulcanalia, the festival of the Roman god of fire, including that from volcanoes. The people and buildings of Pompeii were covered in up to twelve different layers of tephra, in total 25 meters deep, which rained down for about 6 hours. Pliny the Younger provided a first-hand account of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius from his position across the Bay of Naples at Misenum, in a version which was written 25 years after the event. His uncle, Pliny the Elder, with whom he had a close relationship, died while attempting to rescue stranded victims. As Admiral of the fleet, Pliny the Elder had ordered the ships of the Imperial Navy stationed at Misenum to cross the bay to assist evacuation attempts. Volcanologists have recognised the importance of Pliny the Younger's account of the eruption by calling similar events "Plinian".A multidisciplinary volcanological and bio-anthropological study of the eruption products and victims, merged with numerical simulations and experiments, indicate that at Vesuvius and surrounding towns heat was the main cause of death of people, previously believed to have died by ash suffocation. The results of the study, published in 2010, show that exposure to at least 250 °C (482 °F) hot surges at a distance of 10 kilometres (6 miles) from the vent was sufficient to cause instant death, even if people were sheltered within buildings.[12]

The eruption was documented by contemporary historians and is generally accepted as having started on 24 August 79, relying on one version of the text of Pliny's letter. However the archeological excavations of Pompeii suggest that the city was buried about three months later.[13] This is supported by another version of the letter[14] which gives the date of the eruption as November 23.

People buried in the ash appear to be wearing warmer clothing than the light summer clothes that would be expected in August. The fresh fruit and vegetables in the shops are typical of October, and conversely the summer fruit that would have been typical of August was already being sold in dried, or conserved form. Wine fermenting jars had been sealed over, and this would have happened around the end of October. Coins found in the purse of a woman buried in the ash include one which features a fifteenth imperatorial acclamation among the emperor's titles. These cannot have been minted before the second week of September. So far there is no definitive theory as to why there should be such an apparent discrepancy.[14]"

Antara gambaran ilustrasi bandar Pompeii sebelum letusan Gunung Berapi Vesuvius dan selepas proses baik pulih berjaya dilakukan:


sangat menginsafkan. semua ini memang tidak mustahil untuk berlaku. subhanAllah. dalam AlQuran sendiri ada menyatakan tentang kaum-kaum yang telah dibinasakan oleh Allah di atas keengganan dan keingkaran manusia terhadap ajaran yang dibawa oleh para Nabi dan rasul. dan tidak mustahil juga Pompeii merupakan salah satu bandar yang telah dibinasakan oleh Allah SWT pada suatu ketika dahulu. wallahualam... sesungguhnya janji ALLAH itu pasti.
