Healthy and Yummy Sandwich…..

Oooh… back again after almost 07 months… Well, I must seriously start making blogging a priority 😛

Anyways, today out of the blue, I just missed my dear blog and thought I should get back…

I was preparing a very yummy and healthy sandwich for DH… (Btw cooking and the smell of cooking is something I dread these days)  and I thought I must snap a pic or two… Just when DH heard the sound of camera flash he said “Oooh, instagram” hehehehe

Okay back to the sandwich

All the edible stuff you see are from Fantasy Store… (Romaine Lettuce though not visible is under the chicken breast slices)

20131124_130019Okayy,,,, that’s the very yummy lunch for DH today…

The dragon fruit was very juicy and passion fruit juice is someone’s favorite 😉

And I’m going to get myself busy, editing and publishing the drafts I’ve yet to blog…

Till then, Chao..

The lonely CACTUS who stood it’s ground ;)

I’ve been  tending to (once in a blue moon :p) this lovely cactus since early June 2012.. A very generous Security Officer gave this as a gift for my very lonely balcony and this cactus never gave up on me…

There are weeks when I forget to even give a good glimpse since I’m not such a great fan of plants and gardening 😉 (compared to my very garden-able mom n dad, aunts n uncles… hehehe)

Anyways since last 02 weeks I’ve been seeing signs that this lonely cactus is going to be a part of my lonely blog :p But there were times when I had to give up the hope since I thought the plant was dying….

Today morning I was so surprised when I drew the curtains and there it was… the gigantic flower 😀 I immediately called mom and she wanted pictures… hehehe.. and also she wants me to carry the cactus back home when I travel to Addu… Mommy, I can take a branch, not the whole tree please.. since this cute thing is the only companion I have in my balcony 😀

Proud of u dear cactus… do give me more flowers 🙂

My Living Is Fighting Endlessly

Life is a fun thing!!

In my line of work, I always hear people saying “Life is never good for me”, “My life is a mess” etc etc etc…

I haven’t met a single person whose life is mess free. Either they get up every time they fall, heal the grazed knee and walk on OR stay in the ditch not wanting/willing to get up….

Just like most Earthilians, my life some times becomes a harrowing and messy ride too. But over the years I have learnt to focus on the positives, move on if it needs to be done and fight the puzzle called life endlessly…

Yes, sometimes I also wish things were different… That I do not have to go through hard and harsh stuff. But u need to face what is thrown at you right 🙂

So at hard and challenging times, I choose to fight the battle and be the best I can be…… ..  While trying to be the best I can be, I also try my best to be nice to people. BuT I will not let anyone to walk all over me…

Even at this point in life I wouldn’t say that my luck has totally run out just because I may not get everyone’s acceptance for my decisions! I have people who love me, people who believe in me and people who gladly extend their hand whenever I’m in need of it… Al-hamdhulillah 🙂

No matter how difficult your life gets, what you loose, or what people think of you, the only thing that matters, is what Allah has in store for you. This world is transitory, and those who strive, shall be rewarded. So don’t let other people discourage you!

But as for one who had repented, believed, and done righteousness, it is promised by Allah that he will be among the successful. [Holy Quran 28:67]

Beloved readers, in tough times always remember this:

“Olives are pressed for their useful oils, fruits are squeezed for their tasty juice and flowers are crushed for their beautiful perfumes. Thus, if you ever feel pressured, remember that Allah swt is trying to get the best out of you.”
