The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

I just want to say a very BIG Thank You to everyone who has visited, enjoyed and has gained something from my blog this year. You’ve all been great! 🙂
I hope you all have an awesome New Year filled with love, happiness and hope.

In sha’ Allah, I will be back in 2015 with more fresher content, which I’m sure everyone will be able to benefit from.
See ya then!

Until then…

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,000 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 17 trips to carry that many people.

It’s Halloween…

Hey hey! 🙂

Halloween is just around the corner now and many of you will have planned parties or have been invited out by friends to celebrate – by dressing up in different/odd/strange costumes imaginable, to party till late or even trick-or-treating; but as I’m a Muslim, I don’t celebrate it. So I’ll be settling down to watch one of many movies. Sounds boring, you’re probably thinking, but it is not at all boring because I absolutely LOVE watching horror movies! This has become a tradition for me of some sorts.

Even though I don’t celebrate it, I decided to blog and share with you guys these five halloween movies which I have watched and enjoyed.


 Halloween  (1978)

If you are celebrating Halloween completely different this year than the norm, I would love to know so do leave a comment.

And if you do decide to watch any of these movies from above, or if you have seen them already; let me know what you thought about them.

Until next time…

Daily life, Quote of the day

Quote of the Day

Hey hey!

Here was the situation this morning; I woke up to find it pouring down with rain (what else can be expected from the British weather!) The first thought I had was I don’t want to get up I would rather stay here in my warm bed; it’s going to be a horrible day. I’m sure many of you have felt like this at some point in your lives – whether going to school or to work.

So I had a dentist appointment today and I hate, absolutely HATE going to the dentists, I have a serious bout of dental phobia. I was going to make up an excuse and reschedule it for another day. But then I realised, why was I making the weather an obstacle for myself. It wasn’t going harm me, just get me a little wet which an umbrella could sort out; so I went and I hated it but the important point is that I didn’t make any changes to my plans and got everything done.

Would you let an opportunity slip by? Lets say you had an interview, which could either make or break your career, would you give it a miss just because it was raining?

I wouldn’t!

Until next time…

Quote of the Day: Friendship

Hey hey!

It will be a quick post about friendship today. I’ve just had a lovely dinner out with my friends from work tonight and it just made me think about how important my friends are to me. I’m sure you all would agree; without any friends, life would become quite lonely really, a very boring place.

Here are some of my favourite quotes about friendship, I’d like to share!

A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.
― Elbert Hubbard

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’
― C.S. Lewis

If you have good friends, no matter how much life is sucking , they can make you laugh.
― P.C. Cast

So ask yourself, how important are your friends to you?
