NAC November '06 theme
NAC this month has also seen new participants, notably Rrahmon Salihu (Kosovo), Darren Bent (New Zealand) and Maumau (Brazil). We - naguib and fadilah - welcome them to this little virtual ambigram community! To all contributors, thank you for the time and effort sacrificed to be part of this month's NAC..

NAC November '06 phrase
Frankly, this has got to be the toughest phrase challenge yet, but still, as the saying goes: 'when the going gets tough, the tough gets going'. The submitted designs are not merely pieces of good art of pen on paper but also a process of mind over matter as well. Some clever tweakings include the inclusion of '!' at the end of the phrase.
Again, the entries are arranged according to countries alphabetically. The ambigramists' links can be found under Ambigram Mates in the sidebar.
nagfa - naguib and fadilah - would like to congratulate each and every artist on a great job well done. Astonishing!
1) Find a random word.
(Could be the first word you see in the morning headlines, a random dictionary search or even the first word you hear from a person on the streets. The word 'butterfly' in this example was inspired by Fa.)
2) Write the word down.
3) Rotate the word around.
4) Try to 'see' possible words that may 'appear' or 'present itself'.
5) Construct the 'ambigrammatic formulae' (first draft).
6) Design the final draft.
...and, hey presto, you either get a 'surrealistic word coupling' or an 'absurd ambigram'!

The Dinda, The Ganja, The Minda, The Manja.
tika kita kait sebuah kisah kasih
di detik memetik kecapi dan kejora
di angkasaraya yang layang Musytari
bilikamar sebalik purnamatahari
wahai sabitah sila jatuh patuh ke riba ini
alahai ganu bila gerbang terbang kan tiba di sini
kukan tunggu di sini dengan bulan di dalam genggamanku
wahai fadilah telah padam malam hiba ini
alahai jadilah kita eposajaklasikal begini
kukan tunggu di sini dengan bintang di dalam dakapanku
buat harungi badai yang melandamu,
Another Arabic / Islamic inspired ambigram: Syaitan-Malaikat.
