Memories await my arrival ! :D

“Memories are the stars that brighten our dreams.” 

― Sharon Repp

I have some very exiting summer coming up this year. Why? Might you ask.  ;)
Weddings, parties, grandparents,cousins, sleepovers, monsoons, rainbows, puddles,  special mango ice creams, fresh fruit juices , beach walks,salted mangoes on the sidewalks, various types of pickles, VERY spicy food, traditional clothes, bangles, VERY sugary sweets, trains , scooters, bikes,resorts, tours, The ever so cool tuk-tuks etc, etc, etc. :D

 Can't wait to travel back to my home country and make some sweet and fun filled memories. Eager is an understatement. The memories are going to beautiful this year. I feel like the plans made, are all  overwhelming but Life is spontaneous , so they might be more adventures attached, you never know !

Emotions are taking a roller coaster ride. The eagerness, excitement cannot be cooled down with the ants in my pants. Everyday, from day one, is not going to run out of steam. The excitement is due to the freedom and liveliness, back there, is so different from the emotions that I feel here. I'm like a wallflower in school, while a completely different person with my family and close friends. The summer, is when I can be myself  and make some real friends out there. Worrying has always been my favorite of all , so I think just stepping out of my comfort zone might actually be an amazing experience.

Can't stop smacking my lips ! :D

                                                  MAKE MEMORIES AND NEVER FORGET THEM.

Creativity at its peak :D

This is amazing ! :D
"A sister shared this on pinterest"
I find it so sweet and creative:

"30 balloons for the 30 days of Ramadan. My kids picked the candy and filled each balloon, and after Iftar every night, we would pop a balloon and get to enjoy a special treat! They picked the best candy for the 10 balloons on top--for the last 10 days of Ramadan!" Ma sha Allah 



Ramadan in Kuwait : Girgian :D


Girgian - Trick or Treat Tradition

My bundle of joy

   Ramadan in Kuwait as long as I can remember has been quite eventful!
 The best part of Ramadan for me, is Girgian. It is a traditional Arab culture wherein sweets are packed in beautiful baskets or glassware and sent away by companies,organisations and individuals, it is also done by dropping sweets,coins and currency notes from balconies while the children spread their little pouches, singing to old traditional Girgian songs, they go from houses to houses. It is the mid-Ramadan tradition which is celebrated from the 13th to the 15th night of Ramadan. The tradition clothing is also worn by woman and children.This is not just restricted to the Kuwaitis, I assure you that every kid residing in Kuwait will receive a packet of Girgian . Girgian parties are also organised by organisations. For me, this has always been a bag of happiness. Like every other kid, I would be so eager to open the gifts and just gobble up all the candies. This gives opportunities for kids to get together and understand the real meaning of brotherhood, peace and harmony.

Life in a Metro :D

A glamorous city with night lights , life goes fast, it provides an easy access to all the amenities of life. People seek a new lifestyle, new environment, new traditions and customs,  basically a new way of living. The public chattering, stench of sweat and smoke, also fascinates everyone with its lights and luxuries, the early morning coffee you get when you slide into the sleek car and drive in through the drive thru. This is basically the everyday life for a city dweller.

Crowds, cars, skyscrapers is all you see. Crime happenings is all you hear and infected air from the industry wastes is all you smell. Noise can be very unpleasant. Traffic can be a nightmare, it can even make a person swim in the world of profanities. Pollution is a sad reality that everyone faces in big cities. Despite every action taken to reduce pollution, it still prevails in big cities. Every decision or step we take is thought over a million times due to the crime as there is every chance for you being a victim of some sort of crime.

The mindset of people living in the villages is that people instantly become famous, showering in gold,diamonds and what not. Life isn't easy anywhere, challenges are everywhere.Good things happen when you get your priorities straight! : D

 #3.  Don't get involved too much into your fast paced metropolitan city life..... At end of the day your moral values matter! : D


Ramadan :D


Muslims all over the world unite to worship their Lord
The wealthy , poor,young,aged,
Regardless of age,gender and caste
Ramadan is for all
Gifts are exchanged
Sweets are devoured
Dates are everywhere
Long lost families are brought together
In a Communal Iftar and Suhoor                                                                                                                          
*Suhoor- beginning of the fast, Iftar- breaking of the fast                                                                                                        

Wishes are fulfilled
Happiness is spread
Hope is restored
Smiles are widened
Respect is earned
Prayers are longer
Charity is an obligation
Smoking, Drinking is a prohibition
A month of peace
A month of  unity
A month of integrity
A month of glee
Rewards are in abundance
Heaven is unlatched
Hell is barred

#2.  SMILE :)
        ITS A SUNNAH  : D

The First :)

Young Maiden in her sweet sixteens
Writing her first blog
From the land of hot sand, nude pearls
Born as a little princess,
Definitely not the prettiest,
Definitely one in a million
With her partners in crime
Unpacking the world's mysteries
Awaiting victories
Healing minor injuries
Through the path of hurdles
And pointed rocks
A guider,counselor , adviser for all
In search of a guider, counselor and adviser
Sharing a part of her life to you
a happy ending to the day she spends
Grown into a teen
Gladly accepting what life is offering her
With a Smile..
