After a beat...

The ancient Egyptians had a
beautiful belief about death.
When their souls reached the
entrance to heaven, the gods would
ask them two questions. Their
answers determined if they were
admitted or not.

All right, I'll bite... What were

Have you found joy in your life?


Answer the question.

Me, um... answer have I found joy
in my life?
(thinks for several

Has your life brought joy to

Oh, this type of question. I
don't know. I don't think about
how other people gauge... Ask

I'm asking you!

Human Cycle ?

In life, what to take for granted?

What taste does life have if those who are the meaning of your laugh are not here anymore. Those who were here to protect you, to look after you & make sure ain't nothing in the world is bothering you. Are

Live another day, thanking god for what you have today and yesterday and the day before that. Share the love, and make sure to tell those you love, you really do.

We don't get to realize how life is precious unless we are struck with "that" kind of news. We might not be related, we might not be on touch, but in that kind of situation, Hearts & Souls meet before eyes.

In Love with Cardigans

Cardigans came number One in my upcoming shopping list ;) Why??

I was at work wearing my newly purchased mustard yellow cardigan, holding my mug filled with the yummiest Tim Hortons French Vanilla coffee, while having the sleeves covering my hands for extra warmth. That's when I realized: Gosh I need to stock up more of these. Not to mention, it made me keep on wearing my favorite Armani Tees, even if the weather *in my own measures* feel so freezing lol.

I found ahmazing cardi's at Reiss, Forever 21 & Mango. And I'm pretty sure GAP will have even wider range.
So girls, let nice warm *colorfulllll* cardigan
make your day :)

"Layla, If I ever have a baby, I will name her after you" said mzmz.

Me completely startled! *after a long pause* :"what why mzmz!!!"

Mzmz: "they say, ely esammee 3ala ely y7bh, ya5th mn 9efata"

^ can't help but smile at her out-of-the-blue compliments :)

Meanwhile, me & noor are sitting with nothing impressive to work on, so I gave her my ipod to look at my pix haha *talking about loving myself* while I plugged in my other ipod to enjoyyy Sinatra's "Strangers in the night" isn't our winter so cuuute !! remotly freezing but very romantic especially when enjoyed with a toffee nut latte, exxxtra caramel & creme.

Mama came from Haj yesterday! I couldn't be any happier. I noticed for the past 2 weeks she wasn't here, I had the worst insomnia and been haunted when unpleasant dreams every night. Now that she came back, I can finally sleep peacefully. I love you Mama! Oh I got her a gold and daimonds necklace from pure gold that is engraved as " Ummy el 3a'6eema" I highly recommend it for mom gifts.

weekend again and again

Welcome the new batch of kittens in our house. So tiny & ugly :P

Abdulkareem Abulqader song kept repeating on my head while shooting this pic :
ذبل هالورد بعد مافارقه الساقي من يرويه؟
تعال ارجع و اذا بعمري بقى باقي بشوفك فيه

How do you usually spend your Fridays ?

Mine is always about catching up with my family. Ever since I was a student, I can only sit with my family for an hour or two, then I disappear into my world aka my room.

So today went like this :

-Breakfast with my mom and brother

-In my room cleaning and getting rid of unnessary makeup and cosmetices

-lunch with the family

-got my camera and sat outside snapping pix

- back to my room watching Grey's Anatomy

-With mom, bro and sis sipping Chai Za'atar outside

- back in my room, txting, watching tv, planning on my December shopping list

- Dinner sent to my room, so I eat alone and now I'm watching Friends *love*

All I'm thinking about is tomorrow's plan. I totally forgot that my favorite movie is out already. Night in Rodanthe, remember my post about this movie months back? yey it's showing now. And Oh the fact that I'm officially converting into a blackberry anytime next week.

Happy Birthday Joody

Today is Joody's Birthday. If you know me! you will know that joody & I tag along everrrywhere around the city. We have been going to almost all the random places here & there. If one thing reminds me of Joody, I would say her sweetest tooth! she can eat chocolate all day long *mashallaah* & still crave more.

I can't forgot that day when I screamed at this old flirty guy at cinnabon! Omg we just have the funniest accidents together.

& Rainforest cafe in the states! our coats were soaked from one of the water games & we went into this lame cafe discussing our future weddings. Her cousin was saying: aah in my wedding, I only want my inner circle of family to attend & I will have the most classy wedding.

That's when Joody out of no where screamed: what? My wedding will have 3000 guest, in 3 tents & I will wear the Most Manfooooosh dress everrrr!!

Happy birthday my dear friend, You are truly a gem & I hope Allah will bliss you with all the things you wish for *heart*

Foug 3alli el so7obeee

lol, couldn't find a better title, than my mom's favorite song.

Today was my first official day at work. So far so good! everyone seemed energetic & they know what they are doing by heart mashallah! I did struggle a bit with my very first task. But I left the office at the end of the day looking forward to the next. That is exactly how I measure my enjoyment with anything! the feeling whether I want to do it again or not :)

On the other hand, me & my colleagues decided to have sushi for lunch! I felt that I ate lots of "fish" for the past week.

To rememeber

Listening to: Mafeeni Shay- Thekra

Special things displayed on my gifts corner *Hearts*

"I fall for you" Mug. A birthday gift from Bestie Shwai5. It is So cuuute, I only use it to drink my Panadol soluble whenever I'm struck with migraine. For some reason, I believe it has a curing power.


Mrs. Noseless. A funny kisha lady with yummy chocolate hidden under her dress. A very thoughtful souvenir from Bestie Salama from her trip to Germany. I already ate all the chocolates, but I love glancing at her everyday.

To remember: Small gestures count for the world

Goals for Life

Laugh about it now
Better than ..... months later

When you are intentionally pulled into a huge dispute, you just have to step up and handle all the drama by yourself.

I'm trying to soothe down the situation for myself! I wanna look at the bright side of this problem. The problem, I'm sooo was not in the mood for! I made some 911 decisions, and I hope those solutions will work out.

Saying that! I'm listening to my favorite dusty song *elasmaraneyah* etwannesss.

And at the end of the day. I salute myself for the inner power of "I want". The power that made me snap an arrow with my neck! as weird as it sound! I did it. Some people decide to walk bare foot over burning charcoal. I made an arrow split into 3 pieces

Before it's too late, start writing down your goals. Remember goals in your head will always stay in your head! but once you write them down you are declaring it will one day see the world. So far, I have 50 goals to be accomplished. From learning french to donating an organ. Let your mind wander.

I'm Hyper Because

I love you all. ha sho rayekm :P loool

- I'm typing this post while dancing over the drumming sound coming from our neighbors' house. They are celebrating their son's wedding. Wanasa, I love it when our "Freej" has a wedding! all the neighbors will be making dresses & having their hands designed with Henna :D Kind of rare in this time of our life, where people seldomly care about those living next door. Maybe that's explains the fact that my parents are living in the same area for the past 25 years.

- Having sushi two days in a row. Caterpillar rolls! oh my endless love. For those visiting/living in Abu Dhabi, head out to Wasabi. But don't order their tempura, tasteless :x

- Watching too much tv shows during these past days. Too much McDreamy is Ohkazaay ;)

Gotta Sleep now.

Nightie Night. Gorgoues people!

Listening to: Akeed abaz3al - Thekra

Things change all the time, It's our life cycle.

I have always welcomed that change with open heart. Knowing that whatever comes is for the best. But later on, I would suddenly be reminded that I miss old days. I miss those simple chats, open conversations & being completely carefree in life.

Two days ago, my mom's "business number" rang @ 1 a.m, we thought oh what a "mitfare'3" customer calling at this time. Mom listened to the other line very carefully without saying a word. Thought to myself " well that's weird no negotiation!"

She hang up the phone & said: I'm asked to Cater a funeral for a 20 years old guy who passed away on an accident today.

Things change in a split of a second. Ironically, I witnessed that accident on my way to work in the morning, I was trapped on one street for half an hour, cursing my bad luck & being always late.

On the funeral, my mom's employees told her that his father was crying like a baby. Unconscious repeating: He was here yesterday! my only son laughing with his sisters yesterday!

I may not know the guy, nor his name or even his family, but can't help not to feel completely shattered of how things change like that!

So not all changes are welcomed after all.

Side note: You changed! & I don't know why.

So me & my bro decided to be spontaneous & do something different this weekend. I kept thinking well I might just book me a nice relaxing day at the spa. Not until my bro called me & said: yalla pack, we're going to Kuwait on the weekend & cousin Ahmad is joining us too.

Huurrraaay! The last time I've been to Kuwait, I was only 6 years old, Gosh mn zemaan!! so I was soo excited, Packed super lightly & prepared myself emotionally not to be sad if this plan doesn't work out. But with the power of I WANT!! it happend.

Now I just got back like an hour ago, but I left my heart in Kuwait :P It was such a joyful, delightful, just AMAZING trip.


- The unexpected welcome from my Kuwaity cousins at the airport, Oh my god, they showered me with flowers & candies infront of all the crowds. lots of hugs & tears. it's like being separated from your twin for 20 years LOL kinda.

- Out n About everywhere. Chili'es @12 a.m which I have to say should send all our Chili's to SHUT DOWN & declare failure. My god mashallah mashallah 3ainy 3alaihm bardh. Even when it was packed like I have never seen before, the service was exceptional, the food was ahmaaaazing! seriously So NOT like our lame chili's. Acually when my cousins first told me we're going there, I hesitated saying yes. But thank god I did :)

- Maki Japanese restaurant a la shwai5. Go Unagi & tempura maki ;)

- Sea cruise from Souq Sharq at sunset & the breezy weather. LOVED IT.

- Sultan centre & bread shopping for my mom :P

- The heart to heart with Marayem my cousin. I am born 25 days before marayem. That makes her & my cousin Z the oldest friends I have. During this year, me & marayem had the exact same drama happening in our life but neither of us realized that each drama repeated itself for both of us. it was actually very frightening, whenever I say something, she opens her eyes wide open & say: IT HAPPENED TO ME TOO. Sub7an Allah

- My aunts husband who is a photography genius. He has his own studio & editing room in the house. I felt like I know nothing about photography, but he taught me so many useful tips.

lol I'm overwhelmed, I'll leave you with the pix now. Enjoy
