2 - 8 - 1990 - A Day of Peace

Today marks the 24th anniversary of Aug 2nd. Some of us would remember the bad side of that experience. Some of us would reflect. To me, this day, is no longer a day of hate and rejection of fate.

I'm grateful for Allah for the tons of blessings we are showered with everyday, especially for allowing me to move forward and be able to live gratefully. It is saddening to see some of us get too bored with life to actually acknowledge and appreciate the many blessings they already have, and instead, start whining over trivial things. It's also bad to see some of us still refuse to move forward and open their hearts to peace.

The memory of Aug 2nd should not be a day to wail over past pains. It should not be a day of digging up some old feelings of fear, anxiety, betrayal, anger, and hatred, or a replay of past agonizing memories. Instead, it should be a day of reflection and appreciation towards the blessings we have, ; those uncountable blessings that we take for granted. Let's make Aug 2nd a day of reflection and appreciation, not a wailing day. Wailing will never do us any good, and it will only make us go backwards, stuck in the past.

Reflecting upon the good in the world should bring more of it so, let us do more of that. I pray for peace and love to prevail in the hearts of those who have forgotten what it is to be pure at heart, those who have been too broken to see the truth, those who have been betrayed and thus became betrayers themselves. I pray that light and wisdom shines, lives, and conquers, and that darkness and ignorance erodes. I pray for humanity.

Love is...

Love is a rose that comes in several colors and has many layers. It brightens up the hearts and souls of those who come across it. Some are swept away by its devouring smell of beauty, some are thwarted with its sharp thorns that could cut deep into one's flesh and right into one's heart and soul. 

Like the rose, love needs tender care and a gentle touch to keep it fresh. Once the rose is abandoned and left unattended and cared for, it shall wither away and die. And so shall love. It needs nourishment and a deep foundation in order to grow and live strong. 

What a sad way to live with no love and no care. An empty heart, a cold barren soul equals a lifeless life; a life that is not worth living for. So, don't ever hold back on your chance to love and be loved. Share your heart with all that surrounds you, be it a smile sent your way, or an unexpected gentle gesture from someone on the road, or a hearty laugh sent in by a little kid or caused by a cute little creature, like a bird or a kitten. Whatever it may be, take care of your rose, and your rose shall always grow and never wither away.

Peace and Love, everyone ^_^

I could feel the tension in my nerves...

I could feel the little tingling nerves tossing and turning...

And the funny thing is that I don't feel worried at the moment...

I am just so utterly drained...

Lacking sleep...

Some much needed rest...

Real kind of sleep and rest, that is...

Thoughts on a New Year...

"Thoughts on a New Year..."

By: Just a Bunch of Thoughts

The new year, still infant,
Will you feed your baby?
Will you paint a smile?
Will you wash your face and hope for a little while?

You should hug yourself,
You should love...
You should paint and draw with big wide eyes.

Never waste another minute,
Never waste another smile,
Never look back in tears for they are not worthwhile.

Hug your baby and dance for a while.
Feed it with love and peacefulness, 
Feed it with knowledge and wise.
For your baby shall grow strong and smart,
And would be ready to fly.
You shall say goodbye,
But you won't cry,
For you shall expect another baby.
And you shall feed it and raise till last.
That's what you need to do,
If you want to have a meaning to your life

*عــــــــــيــــــــــدكـــم مبــــــــــــــــــــــــــــارك*

و رحل الحبيب... 
 إن القلب ليحزن...
و العين لتدمع...
 لألم الفراق و الإشتياق...
و فرحاً...
 بالطاعات و التقرب من الرزاق...
عسى أن يطيل المولى في أعمارنا لنلتقيه من جديد أعواماً عديدة...

What's Wrong with my Pictures??!!!

What's Wrong with my Pictures??!!!

So, here I am, after a long time off my beloved blog, and after a hard-working semester, I come, with all my love and passion, missing my dear blog, to find this!

What the hell is going on??!!!

Please, someone tell me! My heart is already aching! I thought it was just my browser, so I checked my blog on my mobile and I got the same thing! What is that?? Why am I missing my photos! I was just checking my blog a day or two ago and everything was fine!

I tried opening and saving a picture but it was saved just the way it is appearing on the shot! Black with that warning sign!

It seems like the pictures are only ones not appearing; the videos and the pics in the links are still visible:


Waaait a minute...

I think I know what happened!!

I must have deleted all my pictures from my Picasa album!


But what the..., I thought I was deleting those from my mobile memory only! Not from the actual online Picasa album!!



How do I restore them!!


Ahhhhhh! I want to cry now!

What a way to start my short one week summer vacation!!!


Please! Anyone!!
