End of a Quarter Century

Wednesday, December 31, 2008 19
After 25 years, i choose to close this chapter of my life and look forward for another healthy quarter of a century.

The last 25 years has gone so fast.. The first 15 years, i was clueless on what is it that i am doing and the last 10 i was trying to deal with the crap that life is throwing on me..

In each year that passes by, things accumulate and i tend to carry it around with me for as much as i can.. Though sometimes i’m captivated by these things that they weigh me down and i don’t really progress on where i want to go. Each year i say this is where i will finalize this thing and get over and done with it.. it never happens.. there is always something new that gets added on it and makes it even harder to let go. But not this time.. I am determined to cut off all my attachments to the past and start plain and fresh. I choose to let go of all these things that hold me down which are purposeless and useless.

Before i close this chapter i just want to say:
"to all the people who hurt me in the past i truly forgive you, but that doesn’t mean that you have a place now in my life.. I choose to let go and take a different direction in life where you don’t exist. "

"As well as, to all the people that i hurt, i am truly sorry and i deeply apologize, it was never my intention to hurt you and i am sorry if i was too honest or too brutal. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me."

"As for the people who i hold dear to my heart and who share my life and my world all i want to say is 3asa rabi ma ye7rimni minkum."

I made right and wrong decisions, i had my ups and downs.. Let’s hope that i do learn from my mistakes and make the best of what’s yet to come..

End of a Chapter One..
Turning page one of chapter two..

Voice of Inspiration #4

Monday, December 29, 2008 5
The most consistently miserable people are those who can't be happy unless everything always goes their way.
The most consistently happy and fulfilled people are those who decide to enjoy and make the best of whatever comes their way.

It's great to expect the best for yourself, because your expectations drive your reality. Yet life will deliver many unexpected twists, turns and disappointments on the way to fulfilling those expectations.

Making yourself miserable about those disappointments and misfortunes won't achieve anything positive. Stop and think how much more effective you would be if you could simply accept those disappointments and then move on past them.

Expect the best, and make the most of the rest. That's the quickest way to get where you're going while finding plenty of joy in the precious moments along the way.

Cinderella Story Omani Style

Saturday, December 27, 2008 6
Speaking of Cinderella, i got this in my email and it is hilarious, and i just HAD to post it lool..
WALLAH A PIECE OF WORK.. whoever wrote it is a genius lool.. captured abu el accent.. loool...


Enjoy you guys lool...
P.s Try to read it in Omani-Accent…



قصة سندريلا بلعمانيه

لبست العمانيه وسارت تركض كنها منتزقه حيت القصر وشافها الأمير وحبها ورقصو رباعه وفجأة دقت الساعة الثنعشر وسارت تركض كما المجنونه ... وطاحت على وجها في الدرج

سندريلا سارت البيت بو كنو صندقه واتمنت لو انو الساعة ما سقعت على الثنعش، بس مو تسوي بحظها الناقع

الأمير حط ذيك الفردة بو مال الزنوبه فوق الوساده يمكن لونها زرقة وا خضره يعني كذاك تزرق وتبرق، المهم قام يزعق بذاك الصوت بو يرقع في الذنين حال كل البنات بو في الحاره عشان يلبسن ذيك الزنوبه ، لبسن كل البنات إلا سندريلا

سندريلا نزلت في الحاره (حارة الزط ) ومعها فردة الزنوبه ، وحطتها على الوساده بو عليها الفردة الثانية، ولما قربت عسب تقيسها صلخها الامير بكف خرخشلها ذنينها، وقالها : هين جايه ماه

قالتلوا : الله يصرفك ويلعن شكلك عساك ما تتوفق في حياتك ما شايفني باغيه البس الزنوبه

وقالها : وحدة كماش كما الزط كيف تكون كما ذيك النعناعه

قالتله : حرص علي ود اللذين تو انا اداليك وادغصلك عيونك

ولما جات تقيسها، ما طلعت مقاسها حاولت تخشلها عينها لاكن ما رامت، لأنها كانت ورمانه من كثر الشغل وكلها متروسه برار، ويا حرام ما حد صدقها ونقرعت على عيونها، وجنت الناقعه وقامت تدور حاره حاره كما ولاد الشوارع

Ok this week was i donno even how to say or what to say about this week.. so better me no say anything other than my “Diet Supervisor” is not happy with me and she is loosing hope on and giving up.. My weight didn’t drop but certainly inches did.. coz I can wear things now before i couldn’t.. My fat face became thin, 9ar 3endo shape not before like ba6ee’7.. I feel great…

Ok, so this week i would give my self an honest rating of 50% on track… I KNOW I KNOW, bas wallah i tried, I’m pmsing and it is ruing everything for me.. Bas to be honest, i really screwed up twice, once i was invited to my uncles for lunch and once coz i was invited to a party.. Ma 3aleena.. ra7 Inshallah a3wa’9ha..

So one more week is left!! The Final week.. This week determines my future, it is either i fail or succeed!! The final weigh in will be in the 1st of Jan, first thing when i wake up to get the correct reading..

Clock is ticking and stand alone is.. wallah i donno what stand alone is doing
:s

Dandoon, How is the diet going on?

Twilight *little hearts, little hearts*

Saturday, December 20, 2008 11
"About three things I was absolutely positive:
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him–and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."


OMG its been so long since i’ve seen a movie that left I fell in love with so much.. I just saw this movie and all i can say is “I WANT AN EDWARD TOO”.. OMG *dddrrrroollllzzz* .. I just fell in love with his character.. After the movie finished, straight away went to the bookshop and bought the book.. I was looking for the second part but it is still not in or out of stock so i just bought the first part.. Cant wait to read it.. I bet it is way better than the movie..
*logs off to read the book*

Diet Update #7

Monday, December 8, 2008 10
Ok the official count down has started, with only 3 more weeks to go. I need to loose on an average, each week about 2-3 kgs.. Now with calculating my BMI and all, my idol weight should be at 63.. The closer i get to the number that harder it is for me to loose.. Ana ma a3rif laish i did this.. i was happily faaat!!

Lets see, a quick recap for this week, um i had a little chips, i drank hazelnut café latte and ate ribs.. so very tiny screw ups..

I didn’t weigh my self this time coz i don’t feel that i accomplished anything, therefore I don’t want to be disappointed..

Ok.. on to week #8.. wow.. new year is finally coming..

This eid is the hardest eid EVER!! I love 3omani 7alwa and i cant have it.. The main theme about Eid is the SWEETS that we don’t normally eat.. I WANT.. I WANT.. I WANT.. *sigh* the next eid is way tooo faaaaarrrr….

Now the biggest challenge will be on Friday when my friends come over to my place to have lunch and watch a movie.. Imagine the amount of chocolates and sweets and pizza and drinks that will be there.. AAGGHHHH.. Cant wait for all this to be over..

Yala not much is left anyways.. i can do it...

Diet Update #6

Tuesday, December 2, 2008 8
Too many screw ups happened with me getting my period and craving for MANY things and actually eating them and going to Dubai which made it even harder to maintain the diet situation.. I would have liked to cancel this week from my diet BUT 2 things made me happy and i feel so good about them..

Yesterday i decided to see my weight and what is the amount of damage that i managed to achieve in this week.. I was 70.2 last week, yesterday my weight was 69.6… now 500g may not be much but the fact that i lost means i can do it even if i mess up a bit, bas the highlight of the number is that i actually managed to get my self below 70.. and that was my biggest concern.. I AM BELOW 70.. you have no idea how long it has been and i haven’t seen the 60s lool.. the second thing is today i decieded to wear an old jeans and guess what YES.. I went smoothly with no force at all to pull it up :D…. I am way beyond and extra happy !!!

I still have hope…
4 more weeks to go till end of the year, and the real count down has started!!!

Week #7, here i come….

Diet Update #4

Monday, November 17, 2008 7
WOW.. I am half way through already.. This past week I was so dedicated to my diet I didn’t cheat and I didn’t screw it AT ALL!!...

OMG the weekend was such a challenge, junk food was all over the house, my mom ordered something that I REALLY LOVE but of course it is on the forbidden list so I just had to look at it and droll lool.. my sis kept on getting subway cookies.. and my friends kept on inviting me and tempting me with things and they really wanted to me to screw my diet.. anyways I didn’t submit to them and I stood tall.. Oh the party.. There was this house party that I was invited in.. It was nice.. not as I had it in mind but ok.. Anyways I saw friends I didn’t see for a long time, I mingled and I did Mr. Bean dance (specially for desertpalms).
here are some pics from the party’s temptation..



I didn’t eat anything, I just drank water the whole time I was there.. Determination or what?!!
wallah i am so proud of my self.. my friends couldn't believe i will actually just look at food and not eat it!!! YAY!! *does a happy dance*


So over all the week was GREAT!! But is was kinda slow. Not sure how many weeks left. I am loosing count already, but end of the year aint far!!! I’d say I was 98% on track and I am happy with that.. Still playing football and tennis, stopped jogging…

That is all for this week. Looking forward for week #5 :D

Hey all.. wow, I’ve been away for quite sometime now.. I have lots of catching up to do.. I had a blast last week.. I had a soccer match with the American school.. Yes my team won 2-0. That was a very nice match, did some catching up with some series that I watch, so it was great to just lay back and watch tv and relax..

Ok regarding the diet, week 3 passed fast. I did fewer mistakes unlike before. I managed to stick to the diet abit more than usual.. and yesterday was the first day to do the diet without adding anything from outside.. Wallah I am so proud of my self.. I totally can do it.. Now I have 5 more weeks to go and I feel great. I can see some positive effects on my body, people started to notice that I am loosing a bit.. So that is even a bigger motivation for me.. To maintain this, i will be doing soccer and tennis regularly, i can feel my body is starting to tone and that makes me so happy..

Now the real test comes in the weekend, I have this girls party to attend and all the temptations will be there.. Um is it ok if I dance my heart out and also eat? Balance la :)

Oh well, will see how it goes..

Lets roll to week 4..

Obama is the 44th U.S president.. let's hope for the best (Quoted from Queen)

This is a historical day..I am happy for him.. I was one of his supporters and i so wanted him to win.. Congrats Obama, you did it and you made history with it..
We ask Allah to make him more sensible about Islam and helpful to lighten the pressure on us and change Americans thoughts about Islam..

Diet Update #2

Monday, November 3, 2008 6
Now that 2 weeks has passed things should be easier but it is NOT! God I am suffering, and all the good things come in the time that you so0o don’t want them to come in. So this week was worse than week one. The breakfast and dinners are not bad and 90% on spot but the in-between and the weekend is where the screw up happened!!..

My diet got screwed on the following occasions:
One- Following up with ‘sexy lips’'s birthday and we had an outing and everything went down the drain.
Two- Someone in the office had a promotion and invited us for PIZZA.. how can I say no to that!!
Three- I was sick and I wanted to pamper my self so I took a break.
Four- The weekend welcomed me with open arms LOL..
Five- It was someone else’s birthday so you know the drill..

Anyhow, this week I would rate my self a 40% on track and 60% off track.. But really give me a break.. This week I did more exercise than ever.. I played soccer, I jogged and I also played tennis. So yeah I think I managed to burn what I ate “I know wishful thinking”lool..

I feel great and I feel like I lost some sha7am on the sides so that is always a good sign :D

Yala let week #3 being..

Coloured Shughar--(sugar)

Saturday, November 1, 2008 11
My sister 9ara7a 3ajeeeeeeeba.. she took the normal white sugar and turned it into pink and other colours..
I mean really,, mo 6abee3i how she did it.. Here i took a pic..

Now the question that i have is "What on earth am i suppose to do with coloured sugar?"
So i asked her and the conversation went something like this..


Me: Wow, nice coloured sugar.. looks pretty..
Sis: Yeah, isn't it... *smiles*
Me: ohh i will go and make tea and put it in there..
Sis: What! NO!! you wont!
Me: WTH?! why not? i mean it sugar and you are meant to use it..
Sis: Yeah but not in tea!
Me: o.0 'by this point i am already confused why do we a9lan have colour sugar'.. Ok, then where can i use this sugar in?
Sis: You know, in cakes or as decoration for baked stuff or food..
Me: ok, it is not like we bake these things everyday.. so for me, tea is where it will go..
Sis: 'still arguing that i am wasting a perfect coloured sugar or tea' No,, 7araaam.. ma zain..
Me: o.0 Really?!

I really still don't get it.. and yeah she won the argument and i didn't get to make my tea pink by using the coloured sugar :( !!!

Diet Update #1

Monday, October 27, 2008 11
So week one has passed.. and e7im, well lets say it didn’t really go as planned!! LOL.. I screwed the diet in so many occasions... Well, not really but it got screwed for 4 reasons:
One- coz my will power was always over powered.
Two- coz people keep on giving my chocolates and sweets.
Three- coz it was someone’s birthday.
Four- coz the weekend arrived!!

Ok, to be honest, I always do fine during the day, but at night I don’t follow it BUT i do eat the healthy food that they cook at home,, you know mixed vegetables, steamed fish, grilled chicken, etc. I hope my doctor doesn’t read this post :p

So my progress is as the following.. I managed to follow my diet 70% of the time and I screwed it 30% only,, I exercise everyday, so that helps based on “3anooda’s” philosophy “be optimistic coz at least you are doing something and in the end you are balancing”..

Anyways, I feel great and I feel light and I feel like I shaped up a bit
*smiles*

On to week #2…

Voice of Inspiration #1

There comes a point in our lives when we realize who matters, who never did, who wont anymore and who always will.. So we shouldn't worry about people from our past... There is a reason why they didn't make it to our future!!

Scary Statistics..

Saturday, October 11, 2008 5

This is really freaky.. During the Eid period of a week time, 35 people died!!! And 227 injured!!! Guys really, drive safely..
Statistics, as published by ROP (Royal Oman Police), show an increase in road fatalities this year. Total number of accidents came down by 15% so far compared to same period last year however, fatalities increased by 21% and injuries by 24%.

ROP have attributed the increased death rate to (over)speeding, wrong overtaking, reckless driving and usage of mobile phones. Please be extra vigilant while driving and exercise your defensive driving techniques to avoid being another statistics in ROP list. Make sure that you comply with all road rules and regulations and keep the Road Consequence Matrix at the back of your mind.

May you all be safe while driving and reach the desired destination in one piece..
Allah ye7fa'9kum jamee3an....

Stereotyping The Omani WorkerzZzZz...

Monday, October 6, 2008 10
Inspired by posts from “Abi Omi Abi Oboooy” and “'6ay3a OO Day5a
I present to you, the stereotypes of Female Workers:
The Newbies
These are the types of girls who are clueless and just started working. Not really sure how to dress up or what to wear. They usually tend to change their styles very often and don’t really stick to one. Every week is a new thing to them till they get their groove. They are usually lost work-wise.

The Modest
These types are the ones who are ok. They come in a calm style. Once in awhile there is a change, but usually dressing up is a routine for them and they really don’t care as long as they do their job right.

The Kash5a
These are the evil Arab women who come in dressed in weird style Abbaya’a and they are all about the bo5ur, 3anbar and 3ood. They come in with heavy perfumes that float and linger in the air till you suffocate. All what they care about is the new Abbaya style, whether it is the “French” style or the “African” style, as long as it is new and on the market, they will just buy it and wear it and blind you with their sense of fashion. They don’t care about work as much as they do about the gossiping.

The Magazine Diva
These are the “Fashion Show Ladies” as everyday is a new glamorous day walking in the work runway,, “oops” I mean hallway, with the new Gucci bag, and Prada outfit and Nine West shoes. The talk is all about Mani and Padi and latest fashion crisis. They are usually seen in groups where you cannot mingle with them. Always criticizing the other type of women fashion-wise. Mostly seen eating a low fat yoghurt or drinking caffeine free coffee just to maintain their figure. They are 24/7 on diet.

The Gothic
These are the ladies who are always in black. Black abbaya or a black outfit. Seen in dull make up or with no make up at all. Very unpleasant company and anti social. Always at the corner desk at the end of the office. Gives weird vibes and suspected of using black magic.

The Zbala
These are the ones who come to the office smelling like kitchen. For god sake, it is 8 in the morning what could you have possibly cooked to be smelling like this?? They usually look like they just woke up and they are comfortably sitting at their home. You see them in every team gathering or farewell for the free food. When you need them for work you don’t find them as typically they always have “home/child crisis” waiting ahead in the day.

The Oldies
These are the women who mar 3alehum el dahar and they still don't want to retire. Very old fashion and not really up-todate. Usually seen in groups and never alone. Everyday there is a gathering in of the offices. Doesn't do any work, then complains about the new graduates that come into the company and gets paid more than them.

And here are the stereotypes of Male Workers:
The Normal Dude
Maskeeen hatha el dude. Always minding his own business. Likes to wear the dishdasha and doesn't really mingle at work. Usually married right after graduation. Very dedicated in their work.

The Western Dude
The pants, jeans, and t-shirt guy. Mako wa6aniya at all. If you talk to him in Arabic, Hindi, French or Swahili, he will just reply you in English with an accent ba3ad. Tlaqi bara el wa6an ma-sar. Always criticizing abna2 el sha3b on how behind they are. These types are always charming and running after the Magazine Diva Ladies.

The Over Doing it Dude
These are the male version on the Kash5a Ladies. They are always in new dishdashas, new fragrance, new bu5oor. Charming in the typical "bado" way. They think they are all that and they represent the typical khaliji male attitude. Always seen around the Kash5a and Magazine Diva Ladies. Usually married but searching for wife No.2.

The I Don’t Care Dude
Howa o hindi el shari3 wa7id. Doesn’t really care about the looks. Usually smells like the sun + sweat. The dishdasha always has a stain of curry or tea on it. You never see them in their seats. Always seen in banks or drinking tea in the cafeteria.

Abbaya Crisis

Monday, September 29, 2008 4

ARRGGGHHH… Amazing is the mind of some people..!!

What happened to work ethics and efficiency?

Balloons and Hairs!!

Saturday, September 27, 2008 6
I was talking to my friend "Woody" and we came across a childhood game that we used to play. Its when you take the balloon and you rub it in your hair then you stick it to the wall.. How naive yet happy we were *drifts back to those days*

Anyways, so as we talked about it, i was telling her, not everyone could do that, just coz you have soft hair maybe you could, but us with "e7im" hard hair, it was a bit difficult. She did not understand how i couldn't do it.. so i had to draw it for her..

YAY!! FINALLY! It is about time already.. Wow I am a blogger now *sees my self big in my own eyes* LOOL!

Wow,, as a blogger now, and as this is my first post, I would like to thank the friends who supported me and believed that I can do this *sniff* I am sorry I am getting kinda emotional..

I would like to thank “sexy lips” for her support, and “Manu” for standing by my side, and “queen nusy” for her charm, “woody” for the semi support, and most of all I would like to thank “My Doctor” for putting me off medication and saying that I can lead a normal life from now on.

Thank you
