Weekend Reads


image from livros, whi.

Literally, the last day of this year. This last week was fun.

I wore the same dress two different ways here, and here. What’s new in that huh? I shamelessly like to brag about it as if it’s a huge accomplishment. You can also vote for me, if you like my clothes, me, this blog, or the sky.

Shums has this amazing necklace. I am loving it and Iecco is doing the 30 days blog hop, so don’t forget to visit her blog, everyday.

Happy New year. I am digging the whole weekend-coming-in-two-year thing.

The Last Few Days Of 2010

So, 2010 is almost coming to an end. The days went so fast.
here are some of the things that I did/happened to me in 2010.
  • started my degree, in Marketing and Management. I am gonna be a grad in two years.
  • had my very own show, Access Bollywood for almost two months. It was good to be on Radio and talk about my favorite movie making maniacs
  • wrote scripts for and recoded like three ads. It was a huge accomplishment, since I had no experience at all.
  • was chosen as the class rep, and given responsibilty for three years. I am still having a love-hate relationship with it.
  • got perfect results in the first sem, and good results last sem. Masha Allah
  • turned legal. This was one MAJOR change, as I am now expected to behave and act like a matured adult. But I am always going to be this child-like dreamer no matter how old I get.
  • Lost my job, and got it again, and lost it again. Like a roller coaster. haha. The reason why I stay like this, is because my heart belongs there.
  • Updated the blog almost regularly, haha.
  • Won my very first prize in a giveaway. I am yet waiting for it, it’s a lovely scarf. =)
  • Went back to mom’s place for eid after like 7 years. I was very disappointed with the lack of traditions.
  • Went to dad’s place after 6 whole years. That place has changed so much.
  • Met lots of awesome people, made new friends, lost in touch with a few.
  • Had many many little great things happen that made me love life each day.
In general, it was a great year, and I am glad to have enjoyed the most of it. Hopefully, 2011 is going to be better and bigger! How was your year? Are you loving the new theme? It’s still in the making though.

Have a happy weekend.

Thursday, December 16, 2010


So, I have been MIA lately. I know.
But not to worry, I am doing completely fine despite the fact I am more or less at home, and college starts like ONE WHOLE month later. I have found a good work for myself, but it’s a secret for now.
It’s so exciting, I want to tell you but you guys will just have to wait.
Ok, I’ll give a clue. Or two.
It has something to do with what I am studying. It also involves a lot of my amateur crafting skills.
Oh wish me luck. As soon as I get it up and running, I’ll let you guys know. =D

Weekend Reads


Image from fantasticalfashion.

It’s the weekend, which is pretty much a weekday to me now that I’m on holiday.

Sadly, my movie marathon is going a little slow as I am still two movies and five reviews short. Meanwhile you can read my reviews about Boat Trip, We Are Family and Death at a Funeral.

Yesterday I celebrated a cousin’s birthday and it was actually fun. You can read all about it and what I wore to it. Also, I should've worn this instead.

Maeed is one of those few people I know who actually cares about the environment and does things to help make the world a better place. I recommend his blog to everyone!

This touching blog post of Xef makes me want to help little kids. Do your part too.

I can’t wait to find out what Doe is coming up with this week. She is my role model! Well, one of the few (maybe more than 10) role models that I have.

Also, last night I went out with my gang (not fmc) and we saw the Japanese festival, and later went to eat donuts. Highlight of the night: Those Japanese people singing “Malekey effadha”. Sure beats watching 30rock alone at home. =D

Have a great weekend dummies.

Dear Diary

My life has come to almost a halt. I want to do so many things, but I can’t. I don’t even know why I can’t. I know, I make no sense. I’m going bonkers, and the only thing good about it is, that all the best people are bonkers. Alice told that. To Mad hatter. So, it must be true.

I want to be able to be this person who doesn’t care about what others think. Who lives in her own fairytale. Who is happy, and who loves. I don’t know if I can ever be that person.

People say that everything happens for a reason I just find some things in my life that lacks that reason. People say that things happen, so that better things can happen. They say that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Well, my light isn’t there because my candle is not lit. That reminds me, I need to buy some candles.

The Ignore Life Phase

image credits
Sometimes I have this ignore life phase, mostly when holidays come. I have this habit of ignoring all my sms’s, calls, fb messages, tweets, etc. Mostly all forms of communication with the external world.
I also have this intention to do a complete makeover every time I return from a holiday, and mostly it always goes wrong. WHY? Because I’m not one of those horrible looking people who looks damn hot after after a makeover. (I’m not that good looking either) Maybe I am watching too many movies.
It’s that phase again, btw. I have a gazillion texts that I haven;t replied to and I only go to facebook to play this adorable game Pet Society. (Yes, you can question my age, not my intentions)
I donno what’s gonna happen next, and I don’t even care. Holidays at home is NOT good for me.

Weekend Reads

Today I did laundry, watched Aisha, and spent the rest of the time sleeping and browsing net, not exactly in that order.

You may or may not know from my previous post that I’m doing a 31 day movie marathon this month. Here’s the list of movies I have handpicked to watch.

I also went to college last week to be a backup teacher. I wore a very weird dress/ensemble. You can read all about it here because I am mean like that.

Aisha is one movie I love. I want to live in her room. I also now want to garden and try my hand at match making. Read my review and know for yourself.

I was actually lookig for a redcaprtet site on Bollywood fashion (You didn’t know? I am a huge bollywood freak), and I found one a few months ago.

I would love to switch lives with this girl. She has so many dresses. aah!

Did you know about 30 for 30? Kendi started that all. She is awesome.

I can write about stuff forever and ever. But you have a life as well. So enjoy it, while I sulk in my boredom.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010



Finally, the last month of the year. I can’t believe how quickly the year went. Anyhow, there are still 31 days more to go, and I plan to cherish each day. This month, I hope to

1. Update my blog regularly

I have been pretty MIA since the holidays. Well, you can thank my wmodem for exceeding beyond my wildest nightmares and also me for being super lazy. (Please tell me there is no such thing as super lazy!)

2. Do more chores at home

Only very recently did I realize that I am no longer a child (I sometimes wish I could live one more year as a seventeen-er) and thus, I need to learn to cook. Only cook because I know how to clean (too well, thanks to OCD) and to iron and most of the perfect housewife stuff. No, I don’t have plans to get married next year. I’m just following the girl guide motto. BE PREPARED.

3. Buy more from my “Things I really need in my life” list.

It’s very long and super expensive, but whatever! (I shall stop using super as an adjective to every thing I say. Super sorry. OOPS!)

4. Read the 7 habits.

For highly effective teens. I only have one more year as a teenager, and I want to live it fully. Even if you’re not a teen, I highly recommend this book. It was my mentor when I was growing up.

5. Finish what I started

mostly the things I wanted to do this year, and didn’t do. Mend relationships and stuff.

6. Renew

The most important step is constant renewal. Improving yourself. I am now a 2.0 (I have no idea what that means anyway)

Happy last month of 2010. What are you doing this month?

PS I am also doing a movie a day marathon this month, so check out my movie blog time to time for my blah blah on the movies I watch!

The "I am Not dead" Post

yes, people I am alive.
I came back from mom's place like almost a week ago, and I have been a lazy ass watching too much of 30rock and Chuck and also grieving about the too much shopping I did last night.
I am however doing pretty good, and today, in less than two hours, I am leaving to go to dad's place, home. You see having two homes is kinda weird, and having three is a pain in the butt.
Somehow I managed to keep it going, but now going back to that place after 6 years, I don't know what to feel.
I am however only going to attend a relative's wedding and will be back tonight, but that's not the point.
It's the place I spent so many of my pre teen years, and the place is like the haunted past.
I sincerely hope that this time, history WILL NOT repeat itself.
On the bright side, free trip. =P
So, how is your holidays so far?

What is friendzone?
It’s the one place that sounds amazing, but believe me, it’s one of the worst places to be. It’s when a girl/guy starts to see you ONLY as a friend, and once you’re in there, there’s no getting out. No matter what you do.say he/she will never be able to see you anything more than a friend.
But ofcourse, there are a few exceptions.
I am a very choosy person, and I put A lot of people in my friendzone, and it has led to so much trouble and regrets. One incident was what made me realize how powerful friendzone was.The worst thing is when people you really like puts you in their friendzone. The next worse thing would be when both people like each other but never say, and keep dating the wrong people. Been there, done that, and it sucks!
Why do people tend to put people in friendzone? Is it the stereotyping or the judgmental nature of us human beings?

Eid Mubarak

Well, it’s my third day at HOME and so much happened already. It’s so fun, and yet tiring. I can hardly write this cos I’ve fallen enough times and have like a gazillion bruises. ha!
Anyhow, here’s wishing all my readers a very happy and prosperous eid. Lets remember those times when we used to give real cards to each other and have 5 different frocks for the 5 eid holidays. Those were the days, man!
Being here makes me happy, cause everyone knows me, and I can be me. I don’t have to pretend anything and I have fun. Also cos I can have this horrible tan and still people would talk to me. That’s the beauty of coming from a small town.
So, what’s your small town story?

The Crisis

I have been so lazy lately, and now I am having trouble making my mind. So, here’s the details.
I haven’t been able to go to mom’s place for eid (which is HOME. Dad’s Island is home. I know, belonging to two places is complicated, and much boring-er than you think.) since I moved to Male’, which was 6 years ago. It was due to different reasons on different years, and now FINALLY, I am free to go. That too alone. (Not entirely, since I am going with an aunt and twins, but whatever!)
I want to go to mom’s place because they '”celebrate eid” there the traditional way, unlike dad’s. But the problem is my best friend is getting married tomorrow and I am also going to mom’s island tomorrow.
I wish she hadn’t proponed the wedding, cos I so want to make it. I know how wedding days are a girl’s dream day and she would want everything to be perfect. I’m a girl, so basically I know that stuff. Some of us have this dream wedding, and I don’t want to not be a part of her big day. Ah, I feel sad.
Am I being selfish? I hope not.
On a related note, people keep texting me that they are “home” and it makes me want to go HOME more. aah!!
Btw, What are your plans for eid? Thos of you who have classes/exams/jobs or can’t make it due to some other reason, don’t be sad. I’ve kinda been there, done that, so all I can say is have fun!

Monday, November 8, 2010

Finally, exams are over, and I am able to breathe.
I am not that happy with the exams. Actually, I’m sad that I may have been overconfident and messed up a few ones. *sigh*
Saturday, after the marketing exam we headed to a photoshoot with classmates. It was so much fun, even though three of them didn’t show up. Then yesterday we went to villigili and again another three didn’t show up, but we had so much fun. I finally realized that there are so many things I am so bad at. OK, I did realize that ages ago, but I’ve been telling myself that sometimes I don’t need to be good at everything, but yesterway was a reality check. A wake up call. I still don’t feel that I need to be good at volley, football or moodah erun, but hey, I need to be spontaneous.
I like to think myself as a spontaneous person because in a group, I usually am the one always coming up with new ideas of stuff to do. Maybe that has something do to with my born-leader thing. LOL.
Anyhow, I plan to use this holiday as my retreat to adulthood. Yes, I am gonna learn to do things that I haven;t tried learning, and no, I’m NOT going to try to be mature and stuff because that is boring. I will be an adult no matter how much I don’t want to be one. The only thing I can do is to be ready for it.
Everyone, happy holidays!!!

The Nerdvana

image credits
I am a nerd. I love studying, and I just don’t do it for good grades. I sincerely like knowing stuff. I read a lot, I am a bookworm. I watch documentaries.
People sometimes find it hard to believe that someone can actually love studying. People only care about passing, and well, I don’t care about a pass (insha allah, I’ve been blessed with a good mind), but my parents do. For them, a pass is equivalent to the highest marks possible, which in my college is an HD. So, I do exams aiming for that, not just because my parents want me to, but because I want it. I want to go to a prestigious college and get a master’s or maybe a PhD. College life is a once in life time experience and I want mine to be extraordinary. 
Some people however find it very bizarre, and even associate me with foni and stuff, because I hardly study and yet, I get good marks. That I always finish my works first and I answer questions in class (mostly when NO ONE ELSE answers). Anyhow, My point here is that I think people tend to judge me real quick. I actually fit into so many stereotypes, people get confused. I don’t blame them. I mean I know MOST people my age, in my college, or teens in general HATE studying, but what is wrong if I like it?
I actually like SMART people. I like people who are interesting. I like people who read. I also think guys who read are sexy. But there’s a limit to it. There are other people too, so give them a chance to be smart too.

November Nights


Finally, it’s the month. After three years, I will be going back to my mom’s island, on Eid, and I can’t wait. Only I have like three exams to ace before that, ha! So, last month was pretty boring and stuff, but hopefully this new month will be fun!!! I hope to;

1. Update bloggy regularly

After the challenge, I’ve grown closer to the blog, and it has been like my 5th best friend! (after real bff’s, fashion, books and Techno friends (Blitz, and Trinka, which is my phone. Yes, I’m one of those annoying people who name almost ALL their stuff. On my defense, I don’t name my panties!). So, be ready for some mega awesome posts. =D

2. Be more friendly

Recently I’ve come to know that even though I think I’m very friendly, I don’t really talk much to people whom I don’t know, or know very less of. This makes me a hypocrite according to some very good sources. ha. So, I need to live up to my name, and be friendly!

3. Do more chores at home

I don’t know if it’s the lack of time, or plain laziness that keeps my chores piled up into the third biggest mountain of intangible stuff. I need to climb the mountain and be an ant. (No pun intended!)

4. Be Organized

Clearly, having OCD means one thing. I love order, and routine. So, this is gonna be easier done than said.

5. Read Encarta

Internet comes second as my favorite source of info. The first on the grand list in behold, THE ENCARTA. I know, I’m so 1987 that way, but I love Encarta. Everything about it from the pile of info, the graphics and even that funny Knowledge game where you are trapped in the castle of unknown depth!

6. Learn Atlas

Geography is one subject I fail at. And when I say fail, I mean “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE NORTH IS” fail, which is pretty embarrassing when you are me (aren’t you glad you’re not me?). So, I’ve decided to bring myself to study the geographical locations, and the countries in this small world. (NOT very small when you looks at the ATLAS!)

Let’s hope I can squeeze in A LOT of fun while attempting all this.

BTW, exam in less than two hours, and I have three more chapters to learn. No wonder people call me the Queen of procrastination. (Actually I made that up.No one calls me that! ha!).

Survey Saturday: Beginning


I realized that after the challenge is over, I’m gonna miss blogging so much, so every Saturday I’m gonna do a survey thing, so can know better about me (haha!) and maybe do the same survey so I can know about my awesome readers!

Has the last person you texted ever been mad at you before?
Nope. He’s pretty awesome! ^^!

Who are your last three text messages from?
Muawwaz, Azaan and China. =D

How long does it take you to shower?
Depending on how late I am, it takes from 5-30! I know, I love the bath.

What was for dinner last night?
Garudhiya, bai, theluli rihaakuru, theluli mas, fiyaa, lunboa, mirus. Traditional Maldivian Dinner, which is my family’s favorite.

Do you curse in front of your parents?
never. I am a very very obedient and (sometimes rebellious) but a god girl >.<

Do you wear the hood on your hoodie?
I don’t own any hoodies, unfortunately, and have never owned one. argh!

Did anything special happen last night?
Yeah. I cleaned my room, and I was very happy. (I have OCD and clean things make me happy!)

How many people have you had REALLY STRONG feelings for since high school?
One, and half. (I had feelings for one, not THAT storing though, so it counts as half. =P)

Can you handle the truth?

Day 30

And, behold! The final day of the 30 days “ME” challenge.
What is my favorite song? huh? This is interesting for a last day.
Currently my favorite song is “Can’t be Tamed” by Miley Cyrus. This song is so much related to my life the past few days. Right now, not really that much, but I still love it.
However my favorite song of all times would be Crush, by David Archuleta and Tera Intezaar by Rahul Vaidya. These two songs sum of part of my love life. ha!
The one song that would apply to me right now would be unfortunately “Baby” by Justin Bieber. I never thought a day would come when I would say this, but the lyrics kinda is the same as my life’s lyrics right now.
PS exam in two days. Wish me luck!
PPS2, that picture has nothing to do with the post. Donuts however belong everywhere, so there you go!
PS3, since the challenge is over, I am hopefully gonna stick to regular updates, so check this place every Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!

Day 29


One more day to go! Yippee!! In the past month, what have I learned?

Well, to be honest, last month was crazy. I had a job, and I didn't have it. I disappointed a lot of people including my family and friends. I made many mistakes. I had the worst presentation, and I was a mess.

Then I realized that I’m the one who got myself in the mess in the first place. I made mistakes, and I can say, I’ve learned from some of them. Others, not so much. I let my ego affect everything. And I was being a complete douche.

Most of the things that I do, I do because I somehow can’t learn to say no. I can’t learn to give up. Sometimes, I’m too ambitious, and I have this “kick ass” attitude (literally) and it gets me in trouble.

Blogging had helped me so much. As I go through my archives, I realized how stubborn I’ve become. I was so free before. What’s making me tied up now? I’m becoming more mature, and I’m afraid. Afraid that I’m gonna end up like everyone else. Grumpy and Sad and Serious. I wanna be fun, I wanna be carefree, I want to enjoy life, and right now, I’m being snobby and I’m losing the girl in me. I don’t want to jump into adulthood so soon, but since I am legal and stuff, I’ve started losing myself.

I donno how to be an adult, so I’m like all rude and “Wayne-like” now. I’m in my sleep mode, and I need to wake up. This reality check is lasting too long.

Well, that’s pretty much my life right now. I wanna be so many things, but I can’t. I’m confused. I’m trapped in a box, and I need to get out. I need to burst this bubble. I need my pin.

Do you ever feel that you are trapped, when all you wanna do is fly?

Day 28

a picture of me last year and this year, hmm.
Here’s me last year at CHSE futsal tournament

and here’s me this year.

I haven’t changed much, except I’ve now learned to smile showing my teeth, haha.
But I have changed so much. I have become more mature, unfortunately (according to certain classmates) and I’ve started taking life more seriously. *sigh* Also I think my fashion sense has changed too. I’m still matchy, but I take risks, and I wear loads of color. well, that’s me.
PS I had the worst presentation today. I’m still hoping for an HD in MO. Gee

Day 27

why am I doing this 30 day challenge?
I started the challenge, because in spite of how this blog is supposed to be my “personal” blog, I hardly write anything about myself. OK, maybe sometimes i do, but mostly it’s about how my day was or just some random topic. So, I wanted to give you guys a different perspective of me!
Well, anther reason was I love challenges, and this one had so many fun days. I am so far loving doing this.
Also I wanted to be a regular updater (every-day) but apparently I’m not. Still, it feels good to have had so many regular updates. =D
I also want to thank the readers, who read this blog no matter how lousy I am at updating this. Thanks for being awesome. ^^

Day 26

image credits
What do I think about my friends? Hmm.
I believe that my friends are one of my biggest strength, but sometimes they are also my weakness. I’ve met different types of people over the last eighteen years, and I have made a lot of friends, of different ages, backgrounds, and personalities.
I can honestly say all my friends are not exactly “good” friends. Some of them are otherwise, but nevertheless, I’ve been loyal to my friends as much as I can, and that has landed me in trouble many a times.
But over the years, I have learnt a bit about trust and loyalty, and have seen the bad side (well, some of it) of the world, and it has changed my view about my friends. I do judge people sometimes, but often with time, it changes.
My old friends, those who knew me since I was a kid, are the ones that will always stay close to my heart. Though our friendship has sailed long away, you guys are still the ones who know me the best, and the ones I’ll always drift back to.
Then the ones I met as a teen, well pre teen are the ones who taught me about life, about being a girl, and I can never repay you guys. You guys are great, and I love you for standing up to me throughout the years, and through my lame mistakes and unforgivable stuff.
Then are my current circle of friends, who understands me so well. I know I don’t have to pretend to be someone else with you guys, and even though sometimes I babble and keep doing things I shouldn't, you always stay beside me, and guide me. I love you for that.
Overall, I can say that I am lucky to be blessed by so many good friends, and I hope I’ll never do anything to hurt you on purpose, and if I have (and I know I have done some very mean things that perhaps I shouldn’t) I am truly sorry.

Day 25

So, I haven’t updated my blog in ages, I’d be surprised if I even have a reader by now. So sorry guys, I was really busy with classes, assignments, and some personal stuff. So much happened, but lets move on.

I am now up to day 25, and in 5 more days, I’d be done with this. Today is about one of my favorite things, and I haven't been able to post it cos of my camera issues, but now that I am fully prepared, I decided to show you guys what you would find in me bag.

I usually carry bags that match my dress, so the things may differ, but here’s what I usually carry with me.


I love the yellow bag, and any one who knows me, also will know that I love the color yellow, and I usually carry the bag. So, in no order here goes

1. The “infamous” yellow bag

2. My camera bag, I was taking the pic from cam, so the bag has to make its way in the photo. I have a pink Nikon coolpix.

3. My phone. Yes, I finally got my dream phone, thanks to thuttha. It’s a Samsung CorbyPro, and I can’t get over how awesome it is. =D

4. My notebook, courtesy of Muntha. I quite like Miley, but some people think I should get over kiddy things like Hannah Montana. hmph!

5. An extra phone cover. I am a lot like “Naomi” from 90210. I carry two covers, so that it would always match my dress, just in case I forgot to change the cover. Call me a snob, I don’t care.

6. Make-up bag. I usually carry my MAC mascara, a tiny lotion bottle, a lip gloss, lavender eye liner and a lip balm.

7. A tissue pack. Everyone probably knows that I have unlimited tissue supply. fml! Believe me, it comes in handy, and it sometimes works as a pick up line too. hah

8. Earphones. I am not an earphone type person, but since my phone's got radio, I decided to listen to my own playlists on hfm, and my ads. self centered much? I don’t listen to radio shows since I think it may influence on the way I host shows.

9. A really old Hello Kitty coin purse. I have had this since I was 7, and I absolutely love it.

10. A nail cutter, I am obsessed with my nails since I stopped biting them, somewhere around late 2008’s. So, now even when I am in class, I file my nails. Gah!

11. A pen, pencil and a highlighter. I am a writer (not the kind who is a published famous writer, not yet!) and so I take notes, design stuff on the go, and these are my second best friends.

12. Card Holder. I haven’t found a wallet that I like yet, so this now doubles as my card holder and wallet, and its fugly. fml

13. Mirror. Mirror mirror in my bag, what shall I do without thee?

14. A book. Right now, it’s Intrigue, a Mills and Boon book I borrowed from Shahu. I am a book worm, and am proud of it. >.<

That concludes the usual items I carry around. It changes according to where I go, and what dress I am wearing, and also according to the circumstances, and my mood.

PS, I am hopefully going to leave for Hay Festival in a couple of hours, and I hope I meet new people. =D

October Fest


So, I skipped the September goals, only to find myself getting tied down with the lack of goals and direction in life. Believe me, last month was horrible. Hopefully this month it’ll be better. I am a little in posting this, but hey better late than never.

So, here goes

1. Finish all assignments one day before the due date.

I am a procrastinator, and not proud to be one. Still, pressure makes me work better, but let’s not let pressure do all the work.

2. Study more according to the schedule

Not something I have been able to do for a long time. * sigh*

3. Finish all works

Home, College and even in office.

4. Buy stationary, make up, etc

Seriously, I keep splurging in cab rides and doughnuts, that I now have to borrow pencils from classmates, and wear nothing but orange eye shadow. –_- sheesh

5. Don’t procrastinate

*self explanatory*

6. Update blog regularly

I know I’ve been a bad blogger, as I kinda stopped by half through the 30 day challenge, blame it on the dude, who now has my camera, AND pen drive. *gosh!* as soon as I get them back, new posts! yay!!

Wish me luck! and Happy new month. What do you hope to do this October?

Day 24

A letter to my parents. This is kinda easy.

Dear Mom and Daddykins,

I know I am not the perfect daughter you thought I would be. I didn't quite exactly grow up to be what you painted, but nevertheless, I try. I do try to be what you expect me to be. I do try to live according to your rule book, but I am still a teenager. Someone who wants to rebel, no because it’s cool but because I am never good with other people’s rules.
You are, however the best parents ever because you sent me to school, and gave me proper education, you didn't differentiate me, or treat me like a slave for being a girl. You never made me feel like I couldn't do anything, because no matter what I get myself into, I am always sure you’d have my back. Thank you for keeping up with all my crazy phases and loving me even more. Thank you for not vowing someone’s kid to marry me when I turn 15, and thank you for letting me make my own mistakes. I needed that.
I know I did so many things that hurt you. I am truly sorry, but I love you, and I know I can never ever repay you, and that’s not even slightly why I want to major in Marketing. (One reason is so that I can spoil you when you guys get old and cute and still be there for me). Also thanks for just being there when I needed for a shoulder to cry on, and for when I just needed someone to be there, and not judge me.
I may not be the brightest kid ever, but I do try my very best to PASS (in your dictionary) in all exams and to make you proud. Thanks for keeping up with my crazy spending patterns and shoe obsession, and thanks for calling me Margaret Thatcher (LOL!).
Thanks for not spoiling me, (that much! haha) and for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world.

Love your daughter Shaha

Day 23

Something that I crave for a lot? hmm. I crave for a lot of things, hah. Most of them are sweet stuff like cupcakes, chocolates, marshmallow, coke and popsicles.
When it’s raining I crave for hot chocolate and marshmallows, sitting under a windowsill watching the raindrops, dancing in the rain, and a good nap.
When it’s windy I crave for thelulifaiy and rihaakuru and wearing sweaters and getting out.
When it’s hot, I crave for Ice-cream/Jugo and getting out making sundials, or sipping lemonade under the shade of a tree.
When it’s night time, I crave to be inside, in the light and eat all the popcorn I can and make pizza toasts.
When I feel I am sick, I crave for Granny’s helebeli huiy and listening to Muntha sing “Happy Kitty”.
When I am hyped up and in a mood for fun, I crave for Toblerone Milk chocolate and a good book, or perhaps a bunch of friends to go shopping with.
And I always crave for vanilla cake anywhere, any time, any season!
So, what do you crave for?

Day 22

Today is about a topic I absolutely love blabbering about. What makes me different from others.
Honestly speaking, I am like a lot of people, but not entirely alike. I try to think of me someone completely unique, but then that’d make me an alien, which I am not. So no matter how hard I try to be different, I kinda keep falling back to the spot. so, I’ve stopped the trying, and started just living, just being me for a change.
I’m a lot like those skinny buruga girls, yes. I agree. But I don’t follow the latest fashions, I make my own! When everyone else wears flats, I wear 6 inch heels. That how different it gets.
I’m a very out of the box person. I talk really fast in class so that people won’t understand what I am saying. It’s kinda fun too. I make up silly excuses and expect people to believe them just because I would believe it. I’m a lot like Alice, from Alice in Wonderland, questioning everything, and trying to believe the things others would find queer.
I make up stories when I walk alone so that I don’t have to look all scared and alone. I make up songs about everyday things. I write a lot. I sing, dance, and design!
I pick shoes to match my dress, talk in gibberish when I’m lost for word, play dress up when people are sleeping and pose to pictures when everyone is being camera-shy. I don't try to blend in. I dress like it’s a fashion show everyday. I am too busy dreaming to actually realize how cruel the world is. I like to think I am quite different from others, but then again, I donno all the people in the world personally so there still remain the question of exactly how much different I am. 
I’m not sure how I am different from everyone else because no matter what different thing I’ll do, someone in the world, some one else would do the same. After all, great minds think alike.

Day 21

A picture of something that makes me happy. This is going to be a long post since a lot of things make me happy.
So here goes without any particular order.
cute rings. I love them. also decorated phones. specially PINK!! They scream “Shaha” and they always bring a smile to my face.

cute bags. How can you not smile when you see something like this?

Fairy dust, and kids in gorgeous dresses. Doesn't they go so well together?

People who inspire me to follow my dreams, my idol Doe and yellow flowers, specially daffodils.

Phineas and Ferb! (and Candace and Jeremy too) and Hermione and Ron (also anything Harry potter and Em and Rupert!)
Best friends, and hijabi’s with great style. Also people who walk in the street daily, wearing something that looks like they came from a page of a magazine.

Shoes! and more shoes. 
cute quotes (also great quotes) and BALOONS!!

babies, and cupcakes. =D
marshmallows and food that look too good to eat!
absolutely cute wedding cakes/birthday cakes/cakes and my favorite celebs

Day 20

Someone I see myself marrying/ being with in future.
Hmm this is a hard one. Of course my fictional husband would be either Jimmy Neutron in his 20 year old self, or Ron Weasley. Too bad guys like these doesn't exist in my world in real life. Or may be they do, but they already have their Hermione’s. *sigh*
So far, I haven't really planned that much so lets not plan, and let the magic happen.

Day 19

Nicknames I have, and why I have them.
Throughout the last eighteen years of my life, I’ve gathered up a few nicknames. A lot, actually, but some only remained overtime. My favorite is and has always been the usual nickname Shaha.
Some people call me Shaa, which is totally OK by me, since they think my real name is Shaha and try to shorten it, haha. Then, some call me Shaako (which always reminds me of Sharks. gee), Shahahahahah (cause I laugh way too much), Shaaha (another variation of Shaha) and ShaSha (I love this name. Still, it’s too Bratzy for me).
Then there are those unrelated names, including Baby (everyone in my pre-high school knows me as Baby, cause I was the youngest one there), Diary Girl (apparently, due to the blog name), hansikagirl ( my former blog and mig name), Bieber (LOL, as I hate this guy, and that’s why my crazy classmates decided to call me this! Argh!), Tinky WInky/Tink (a nickname few funny friends call me), and Nerdy (due to my almost nerd state!).
Next comes the family nicknames which are mostly Dhontha (I love this name) and another variation of it, Dhonthi (due to too many dhontha’s in the family).
Also, there are some ridiculous nicknames like Shahaada Ahmed Fareesh,(Don’t even ask me why, my classmates are bonkers!) and Blha Blah (again, by classmates cause I write and talk too much, Lol)

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Day 18

Plans/dreams/goals that I have. As most of the regular readers know, I am obsessed with making goals, lists, name it. So, I have like a thousand dreams and goals.
The most notable of them are
1. I wanna be a fashion designer. Actually a business woman, with a fashion line.
2. I want to do a PHD in Marketing
3. I want to visit all the countries in the world
4. Publish a book
5. Live my life fully!
I do have a gazillion more things that I wanna do before I die, which you can see by browsing through my monthly goals and new year resolutions and the Life list.
What are your goals/plans/dreams?

Day 17

Who would I want to switch lives for one day and why?
Hmm, this is a hard question, I mean there are loads of people whom I would wanna switch lives, mostly celebrities, and kids (LOL).
But since I am only supposed to choose one person, I am gonna go with Jane from Sea of Shoes.  She’s an 18 year old fashion blogger. She is not really a celebrity (I bet that none of my friends even know that she exist!), but she is awesome. She has an amazing mom (but I have the most amazing mom!) and a great blog, the perfect boyfriend, a great home, the freaking-mega-awesome shoe collection, and her own shoe line. Also, she has great sisters, and she has been in the Chanel debutante Ball along with prince’s and other famous people.
Even though she and I have so different styles, and probably opposites of everything, I want to know how she lives for just one day.
Also on my list of people to switch lives with include David Archie, Tyra Banks, Rosie Hardy, Michelle Obama, Hansika Motwani, Shea, and that girl I once saw in Majeedhee Magu with two gay best friends. =D
And the fictional character that I want to switch lives with is Timmy, from Fairly Odd Parents, Jimmy Neutron’s , Nancy Drew and Hermione Granger.
PS, It’s Muntha’s birthday today (Sept 13), so Happy Tenth Princess Myra! (I call her that. Don’t ask why)

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Day 16

Another picture of myself, as if you guys aren’t bored already. But hey, I’m all up for shameless self promotion. =P


My usual weird pose whenever I don;t think people are talking pictures of me! Also, I love yellow, as if it isn’t obvious! Plus, this was the day I decided to dress up as a hufflepuff.Not a good idea, as people thought I was dressed like a Bee. Seriously! People don’t get me at all!!


Did I tell you I love posing around STOP signs cos I think they are cute. Some people may disagree. (yes, Iththi, I AM talking about you!). Also note, I AM NOT SLEEPING. I am just looking down!

Day 15


So, today I gotta put my iPod to shuffle and list the 10 songs that play. And since I don’t have an iPod, I’m using my ever so reliable media player.

1. Loabi Vanee Keevehey – Ehandhaanuga Remix

I don’t like this version, as I love the original version, and I’m against changing lyrics oven to do a cover, and I feel that the song was made worse. I still like the girl’s vocals.

2. Womanizer – Britney Spears

Honesty, this is the first Britney song I ever listened, and I instantly fell in love with it. I don’t like Britney, but she’s such a good singer. haha. Till this day, I’ve listened to many Britney songs, but this still remains my number one song!

3. Billu Bayankar – Billu

Ok, I agree. i have a weird taste in music. I absolutely love Punjabi style songs, and creepy songs like this. Gosh. I would listen to this over some much fames love song  any day! Call me crazy, but that’s who I am.

4. Surili Akiyon Wale – Veer

I absolutely love this song. It’s very romantic and mellow. Normally I would rather listen to a hyper song, but this song soothes me, and it makes me dreamy. haha. Also, I love Hindi songs and movies more than English.

5. Fairytale – Alex Rybak

This is only Alex song that I know, and I then became a huge fan of him. Only one song was what took me to like this guy. Plus, he looks HOT!

6. Jogi Mahi – Bachna Ae Haseeno

There was one time in my life, when i put this song on repeat and only listened to it. This time lasted quite some time, so you can imagine how much I was attached to it. As said earlier, I have a fascination for Punjabi style songs.  This one is special because it kind of tells the story of my life, at some point.

7.True Friend – Miley Cyrus

I am a huge fan of Miley, so I have all her songs. This song is not exactly a favorite. I just happen to have it on my playlist.

8. I Wanna Know You – David Archie and Miley Cyrus

Two of my all time favorite artists doing a great song. It actually should be my favorite, huh? But, not really. I do like the song, and play it quite often though.

9. Fabulous – Ashley Tisdale

Another favorite singer. You must think, “God, does she only like cutesy Disney songs?” haha. Not always, but I do love Disney. Plus, this song is totally fashion- related and fab!

10. Connected – Katherine McPhee

One more reason to love Barbie movies, they have amazing songs. My sisters and I love these type of songs. I personally love how happy-go-lucky this is, and Cat’s vocals are ah-mazing!

So, what is on your playlist today?

Day 14

Today’s supposed to be about a picture of me and my family. But since my parents privacy is something I want to maintain, here are some pics of me and my sibling, Muntha (the older one. She turns ten next week) and Mickie.

Day 13

A letter to someone who has hurt you recently! whoa. I don’t let people hurt me. I think I’ve gotten pretty good at it. Thanks to sarcasm, and positive thinking, and Ice-cream, I've been having good relationships with people. However, hurt isn't inevitable. At some point, I just get hurt, specially by the people whom I never thought would hurt me. But I never hold grudges. OK, almost never! Actually the last people to hurt me were some classmates, but I've gotten over it, and I don’t really have anything to say to them.
As most of you might already know, I am entirely bonkers, and so I make up stuff in my mind all the time. One of these things, is a guy named Ben, his girlfriend Leia, who btw is two timing with my stepbrother Freddie (I do have a step brother, and Freddie is a perfected version of him. LOL). So, I am gonna write a letter to Ben, whose short for Benqjirkinsonn(pronounced as Ben-Jerk- in-son).
Not so dear Ben,
It’s not my problem that your girl friend cheats on you. And it’s definitely not my problem that she’s a freaking gold digger. Get a life! ( and a new girlfriend).
Much love, (and good luck in getting rid of Leia) , Shaha!
On an unrelated note, Ben didn’t hurt me (Ben is a fictional character, for gods sake. He can’t go on hurting people or making them feel like Miss-fatty!)
Also, I should learn to hold grudges more often so next time a post like this comes up, I wouldn't have to write a fake letter to a fictional Ben-Jerk!
