December♥Surprises and Rewards..!

My December is so full of surprises and good rewards, that i have start believing that I am getting pretty cool gifts even before my birthday this month;)

This year is ending so smoothly, and as if it loves me, its leaving some cheerful presents for me:)

Right now I am going to have chocolate and nuts ice-cream, and you know what?  It’s so freezingly cold here that I have got a severe pain in my right leg:( {but I think i was about to tell the ‘good-happenings-of-nowadays’.

Okay, so my two bestfriends (who were my school friends) came to my place on Friday…(wait, the ice cream’s so “cold”, not “cool”!) Alright, so i had SUCH A WONDERFUL time with my friends!!!!!!!! We are going to cherish it forever!!! We had lunch here, shared talks, chatted non-stop, got crazy and made memories!! One of them is together with me at college(Though she is in an entirely different faculty, but we do get chances to hang around, together.) while the other one was studying in a different college, so we had a lot to tell each other!

Plus, I made cold coffee for us, which we LOVED so much! i mean, it not only had such a cool blend of brown, but it also tasted AWESOME):P

Thirdly, yesterday I went to my aunt’s house, together with my siblings and mother to spend our day and PARTY hard!! And I had a FABULOUS time with my new-born (actually, 3 months old:) )cousin and we played a lot:) And I had my fave Macaroni Noodles with delicious meat and veggie topping, and tomato sauce on it…Plus Qorma. (which I suppose you don’t know of<sigh> )

Here, meet Bilal:

MashaAllah!!♥♥

And did I forget I went to shopping today?! Or should i call it window shopping only?! Because whatever I wished to purchase, my mom was like “NO WAY!”

Last, but not the least, I got an incentive of complementary classes for 2 subjects because I had got a 90+ in my prev. exams! So, that becomes a happy ending of my post:)

I Thank you Allah, and I thank you people.

Sadness Tracks Happiness: Emotions.

lazy_summer_afternoon

Sadness tracks Happiness.

PROVED.

I came home today, and I was pretty excited for no reason…I laughed, and played, and shouted, and enjoyed. Later, I was trapped in that depressive mode of mine:

And I began humming sad tunes.

Sketching.

Sitting.

And pondering.

Why does that always happen? Why does sadness track happiness? Why is sadness powerful?

Weekly Photo Challenge:FACES

What could be the best photos for FACES, when I have two new-born cousins, awe-fully awesome!

Little, beauties!

Sweet Angels!

The world is so pure for new ones. For youngers. They sleep, laugh, play-all peacefully-because they haven’t realized the ups and downs that awaits every person!

Prayers for my two cousins!

Weekly Photo Challenge: TEXTURE

For this new photo challenge too, I wanted to use only the things that I already had. So, I emptied my drawer and found:

  1. A piece of cloth folded in a purse. This was a cloth that I had applied tie-and-dye technique on, few years ago!!
  2. There was this golden wrapper of chocolate that I saved a day ago, because I liked its texture as much as I liked the chocolate itself!!:)
  3. And then, in a small pouch I had put some sharpener shavings, which looked pretty cute to me. So I took them out too!
  4. Lastly, I put in on my carpet, for another texture, with some silly stuff like the golden, wrapped cloth and the shell.

And here comes my stupid photo of TEXTURES!!

Textures...

Another photo that I took was more trendy, and I guess better.

Trendy Traditional Textures!!!

So this is how I prepared my simple photos for this challenge. Hope you like them:)

Cats and Dogs!

Sir and Madam,

I don’t mean to address you by that name (Cats and Dogs), that actually is the topic for my new blog!

And how’d I get the idea for this blog? I will let you know.

I recently got anewsletter, about a week earlier, from www.answers.com .it mentioned about some funny questions that they recently got. Among which the most interesting one was:

Why don’t cats and dogs like each other?

So, it gave me a new topic to write on!!!

I searched it on Google, and found out to my great amazement, that cats and dogs do like each other!!(at least some rare ones do!!)

Darlings!

❤ ❤ ❤

So you saw that? Lovely, isn’t it? And pardon me, but this is true…

We humans have alot of hate for our enemies. Ever thought of forgiving, and becoming a friend again-of your worst enemy?

Do it now.

Life Rule # 1: Forgive and Forget.

The great thing
is not having
a mind. Feelings:
oh, I have those; they
govern me. I have
a lord in heaven
called the sun, and open
for him, showing him
the fire of my own heart, fire
like his presence.
What could such glory be
if not a heart? Oh my brothers and sisters,
were you like me once, long ago,
before you were human? Did you
permit yourselves
to open once, who would never
open again? Because in truth
I am speaking now
the way you do. I speak
because I am shattered.

~Happy Moments~

Happy moments.

Like the birds sing a sweet song.
Like the rivers strum a lovely tune.
Like the stars serenade the moon.
Like flowers look so pretty in June.
Like water makes violets grow.
Like winter brings flaky snow.
This true and no jest.
Love is the blueprint for happiness.
by Lamar Cole.

The reason for beginning with this poetry here is to tell ya all…that I am sooo happy!!(Alhamdolillah=)

You know what? Today I had a great day!  Starting at 8 ‘o clock, I woke up and realized that I woke up late:/ Well,I did not have to goto school, yet there is a great institution that I joined,  a couple of days before..So  there, the institute van was about to arrive at any time and I was only stretching my legs and arms, and rolling my eyes, until my bro entered the room and told me to get up!

Ignoring the unnecessary details to tell ya, I reached the inst. at 9 and took my classes till you know, the recess time.After that, the ‘fun’ actually started..! We were to go for an educational trip today, and the trip was to an agricultural professor’s house! You know what? It was one of the MOST amazing places I had ever been to. Let me elaborate:
It was a great bungalow and was full of greenery! Plants, plants and yet plants! Oh and beautiful flowers, things I had never seen before.. Plants from around the world! Cactus, Orchids, and so many more that I couldn’t memorize the names of!

There were ponds, three small ones; with the purpose of moisturizing the plants, set at an equal distance from another. Surrounded by rocks and shells and filled up with a variety of fishes..Gold fish, red fish, black fish, cat-fish:P And yes, their darling kids:D… And there was one huge pond too.With the best decor and fishes.Other then that, there was, of course, a variety of plants.. Plants that required no medium, those on water, those on land..Those having their pots filled up with coal instead of mud…And those-hanging creatures! Pretty-est lotuses on ponds!Those awesome awesome plants, pineapples and coconuts…!And so much more!

And then, the professor and his wife explained to us about those various plants and then helped us in planting our own, by giving us proper instructions!And then we had juice and biscuits, which appeared to be great refreshments for all of us then!

Pakistan-India Semifinal match!P.s. DOnt make worldcup a war!

Hello people!!!

Everybody is damn excited for the Pak-India worldcup and an excited aroma has filled up the air..From kids to adults, girls to men, and every every one is excited!

So much of the media coverage plus the text messages and yes, the facebook stuff, has made this event as  “THE EVENT!”

All Pakistanis and Indians (and all the other cricket fans out there) are waiting badly for tomorrow..for the great match in Mohali..

Although rumors say that the match is fixed..everybody is hoping for the best,..

It seems like a huge war because people are taking it more than a sport and more than anything.It has become more like a matter of self-respect n ego..And I appeal all those reading this to control their emotions!:P

In the end, I hope, and I pray that my team wins!

Hatred and Violence..Differences that matter not

Right now, all I have to say is about the differences of groups and statuses that we have made between each other, Why is a Pakistani just a Pakistani and an Ethnic just an Ethnic? A Muslim just a Muslim and a Hindu just a Hindu? An American just an American and a Christian only a Christian???

Aren’t we all humans? Can’t we all be classified just as humans?only as humans?Not on the basis of a color, creed or religion?Why does one group has to fight with another one for the sake of these groups?Just now, I visited a page on facebook.It was about a country, name it A. And its job was to spread hatred regarding country B. Violating all etiquette and laws of mutual respect, they had used such abusive words and comments. Why so?

Country B does that too. It doesn’t let leave a single chance to insult the other group’s person on their own platform. We call them “terrorists”. What are we ourselves??

Life is so short, why waste it in enmities then?Lets gather and spread love.Be kind.Be good.Be just.

P.S. If you can’t be good, dot be bad either!

A traveler once came to the mosque to see Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). After greeting Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), he was asked where he was from.

Story of a man who wanted to change by Prophet’s advice

Once a man came to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and said, “O Messenger of Allah (SWT), I have many bad habits. Which one of them should I give up first?” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “Give up telling lies first and always speak the truth.” The man promised to do so and went home.

At night the man was about to go out to steal. Before setting out, he thought for a moment about the promise he made with Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). “If tomorrow Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) asks me where have I been, what shall I say? Shall I say that I went out stealing? No, I cannot say that. But nor can I lie. If I tell the truth, everyone will start hating me and call me a thief. I would be punished for stealing.”

So the man decided not to steal that night, and gave up this bad habit of stealing.

Next day, he felt like drinking alcohol, when he was about to do so, he said to himself, “What shall I say to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) if he asks me what did I do during the day? I cannot tell a lie, and if I speak the truth people will hate me, because a Muslim is not allowed to drink alcohol.” And so he gave up the idea of drinking alcohol.

In this way, whenever the man thought of doing something bad, he remembered his promise to tell the truth at all times. One by one, he gave up all his bad habits and became a good Muslim, a better human-being.

…………………………………………….

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) taught the mankind justice, honesty, truth and love.And his personality was a model of these great virtues.

He respected all religions and all people and so all should respect him.

This Valentine..

Heya people!

Valentine is coming by and all lovers seem to be very enthusiastic about it, after all “love” is something soo beautiful and exciting,right!

Well,but I don’t get one thing..It really irritates me..Does “love”-the sacred, holy blessing-requires some specific time or date to be celebrated??

Is it not something which should be celebrated every Milli, nano, pako,teeny-weeny second??!Isn’t this what true love is all about? Caring for your loved one-be it your mom, your dad, your friend, your Allah, anyone- at any time?and every time?

Then why on the earth we restrict ourselves to 14th February?In my idea, it’s a feeling to be cherished every time and enjoyed all-time..and i hope you agree too!!

Willpower is real power!

I have always heard this that your “Willpower” is that real tool that can definitely lead you achieve success!

“You have a very powerful mind that can make anything happen as long as you keep yourself centered. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

And this,
“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”
Mahatma Gandhi

It is something that allows you to face each challenges! Lets you believe in your abilities, asks you to stand up for yourself.

“Will power is to the mind like a strong blind man who carries on his shoulders a lame man who can see.”
Arthur Schopenhauer
