2013, By the roaring waves!, Event

It’s Mae-Mae Time!

‘Look, there’s such a rush! What are those so many people doing over there? That huge group circling that van, what’s all the hip hop for? Or has the vehicle suffered from a serious accident? WHAT ARE THEY ALL UP TO? Oh move aside, I have GOT TO LOOK!’

And lo! A royal cow has arrived in our locality, for tomorrow’s Baqra Eid!!! And oh, not just one, there are four of them!

Its Eid-ul-Adha, or Baqra Eid as we call, the second Eid that Muslims around the globe celebrate (this one after the holy Pilgrimage), in the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim and Ismail (A.S)’s exemplary sacrifice.

This event brings a lot of happy (and yummy) moments together, that start even before the day comes, and lasts long after Eid is finally over.

After a long wait when the cattle finally arrives, (not to mention the mandi process since oops, I’ve NEVER been there) that excitement to play and feed and taking them for a walk and then finally having them slaughtered *tears* and then feasting with those DELICIOUS steaks and seekh-kababs and this and that, and that, and that, it’s SCRUMPTIOUS!!

This Eid also brings a lot of cherish-able moments with it, the best of which include those MEGA-RUNS when one of the bechari goats (or in some cases, a wild buffalo) runs away and a crazy crowd start running after it, leaving rest of the world (or women) laughing behind!

Or the other way round.

Or the other way round.

Anyways, I wish you all a very happy Eid! Party hard and don’t forget to care for those deprived.

Eid Mubarak ūüėÄ

Farewell 2011: Happy 2012!!!!!

Greetings!

2011 was a beautiful year for me. Never had I been so related to something like a ‘year’ or a ‘month’ as I feel now. I experienced love, hatred, tears, cheer, fights, fame, gain, loss , lessons, hopes, and unforgettable moments!! I discovered myself. (atleast I tried to) and deaths. And I discovered a number of great blogs!!!!

2011 was a great blogging year for me! I got a total of 26 followers, among which 25 are from this year only..!
I pay them huge thanks and I hereby tell them how fond I am of their blogs too;)

My Blog Is my Best Friend..!

 

People don’t understand you? Do they? That is, except your mom, and ¬†sis, and your best friend? Or maybe your teacher too? (oops, that is a lot of them!!) But well, they don’t exactly understand everything! They might get tired of listening to your ‘rubbish talks’ and they might find it boring to listen about ‘your stupid embarrassing moments’ again and again?!! Right?

THaT IS WHy i LOVE MY bLOG!!!

You see, you can put¬†everything¬†in your blog..Its your Hyde park! It won’t scold you, get bored, or forget you! It will always be there for you!(But yes, you can get caught if the person who-must-not-read-this, reads this:P)

And what makes me write this is what happened a couple of days before…

  1. I got 92% in my Final Exams, Alhamdulillah:D
  2. I was pleased to have so many calls, messages and Facebook comments to congratulate me.
  3. The same night, a very¬†embarrassing¬†scene happened. I was waiting for my father to come home with a¬†CHOCOLATE¬†FUDGE CAKE that he had promised me, when the bell rang! I rushed towards the door, and without even asking who it was, opened it wide! With a long rant of “ASSALAMOALAIKUM!!!”. Our building’s gatekeeper was standing in front of me, very surprised.
  4. I had the MOST DELICIOUS choc fudge cake everrrr!!!:D
  5. I found out that a choc. fudge cake could be a great anti-depressant and mood-fixer!!!
  6. I slept well.

Now you see, I wanted to tell everything to anyone! And I realized that I could, you know, paint all my thoughts in my randomlyabstract blog!

[update Aug, 2014: Wow. I can’t believe I wrote that. But I remember the fudge cake and the embarrassing salaam. And the celebrations waghera. But maaaan.;_; ]
