Happy Holidays!

With one entire week of the holidays already gone and only one more remaining, hope everyone is happy and enjoying!

My holidays so far are going pretty great and quite busy but loads of fun! I was in Indiana, USA last week and this week in Pennslyvania. It's totally awesome here! And there isn't even a drop of snow! (Huge contrast from back in TO!) Anyways.. the landscapes here are BEAUTIFUL!!

Apart from all the enjoying... one thing constantly haunting me is my homework. I have no idea when I'm going to do it.. though I have May GOD help me with that!

Next exciting thing is that I finally got a laptop!! Thank GOD! And MashAllah, it is wonderfully magnificent!

Well that's all the update for now. My God.. time is just going by so fast!! It feels like just yesterday I was rejoicing that the holidays have begun and now I'm starting to think about it ending, school starting and exams approaching... oh God, scary thought!

Well...we've still got six more days of freedom (unless you're stuck doing homework due on the seventh day). Anyways, time to enjoy to the fullest and relax! Soo once again, Happy Holidays everyone!!

A Thought on The Eleventh Day of the Twelveth Month of the Eight Year

There comes a time when you just don't feel like doing anything what-so-ever.

You can't sleep, though you want to.
You can't concentrate, even though you have to.
You can't think, 'cause there is just too much to think about.
You can't eat, 'cause you've lost your appetite.
Even chocolate doesn't seem to work anymore!

So what do you do?

"Talking it out" isn't always the best way to go, nor is keeping it buried inside.

So what CAN you do?
Forget about it? Nope.
Yell about it? No.
I really don't know!

For me, the best way to get peace is to P-R-A-Y. Yes, Pray. A simple prayer and a long duaa is just what helps. That way, psychologically, you know there is a much greater force out there that you can trust no matter what.

Sadly, all humans are mere mortals. Each of us lust for something. Each of us have a good and bad side. Naturally, we are humans and thus made such a way that we can not be perfect no matter how hard we try. Hence, it should not come as a shock when one mortal fails to meet the expected deed.

No worries!!
Put all thy TRUST in the One and Only - GOD.
No matter what, this is one power which will never betray us and only guide us and lead us to a better life.. if only we reach out for GOD. It's only a matter of a small prayer from the heart. One you truly mean. One you truly wish for. One you truly need.

So if you're reading this, and you know that there was a time when you felt like the above, go and pray right now!! Even if that has never happened, a prayer will only benefit you :)

And if you still feel like doing nothing what-so-ever, it's okay, you are not alone..

Your Personal Values

Personality quizzes are fun, whether long or short. Here's one I received just a few moments ago - short and sweet :)

Here's what to do:

List the following animals from your best preference to least- Pig, Horse, Cow, Sheep and Tiger

Got it??

Wrote it down?

Now here is what they mean:

Pig = Money
Horse = Family
Cow = Career
Sheep = Love
Tiger = Pride

How'd you do? :)

Here is my result : Tiger, Horse, Cow, Sheep, Pig
thus, Pride, Family, Career, Love and Money.

Enjoy :)

Bed Time Story - By Hibbed

One of the most creative and intriguing -on-the-spot-made- Bed Time Story.. for me! :D ahahaha
... Worth Reading, if you really want to ROFLOL :D

---------------------Written by HIBBED---------------------

once upon a time in a land far far away

lived a handsome .. strong.. and poetic young man.. Sir Hibbedsalot

he was known around the kingdon for the smoothness of his palms.. and the redish hair on his fingers... (mehndi color:P)

well one day..

sir Hibbedsalot was making his daily route alongside the bridge of Thornsville ! when an ogre appeared from under it!

the ogres name was Hufosy akbore! and had the ugliest face in all of Thornsville ! Legend has it that Hufosy Akbore had been banished by her friends.. to the refuge of the bridge over a dispute of some challengre or a quiz of sorts by the town wise men (science teacher)

Hufosy had also been the victim to many peepers from town.. since he had not Hid his webshaped .. lens.. or camera of sort

anyways.. sir Hibbedsalot.. knew that the ogre had to be slaid:-O

(cue dramatic music )

And then sir Hibbedsalot looked at the ogre.. and the ogre snarled at the hibbedsalot.. every body knew that a duel was about to begin

Hibbedsalot.. went with the first attack.. extracting his hand hair.. to spin a web aroung the ogre.. but his attack was intercepted.. by um.. hair..


a moustache of sort..

Hibbedsalot. looked around and knew.. he was staring at the worst moustache based villain. in the history of villains..

Amalethine - The wearer of pink :-O

(dun dun dun...)

they all lived happily ever after :)

The End:P


The Ogre.. looked at both.. and knew this was nothing that Hibbedsalot could do alone..

Hibbedsalot shouted to the people of the town.. to his aid

but no one came.. no one wanted to be associated with the smelly ogre:-O

This is when.. Hibbedsalot got a plan.

he called apon the awesome powers of the awesome D-U andR trio ( figure that one out ur self) , to his aid.. but the trio did not reply.. since they were the orignal banishers of the ogre:-O the Hibbed had a burden as an ally.. and amalethin- the wearer of pink.. was already opening the knots of her moustache for the second attack

yeah.. so amalething unwinder her moustache.. and and she huffed and puffed... but this time Hibbedsalot was ready

he stood upon a stool (just like in flash back meetings) and aproached the trio again! Except this time.. he mentioned that... the trio should forgive the ogre.. i mean the ogre has had a sad life.. the ogre was just trying to find a place to belong by fulfilling the quiz. He wanted to join the group of the Nutoriously, Evil Red Dragons.. or N-E-R-D for short :)

the tri heard Hibbedsalot plea and didnt listen.. and Amelethine.. gave hibbed a snot-tache whip! covering him with yellow snot!

Hibbedsalot was down. and it was the ogre's turn to move:-O

The ogre... called upon the N E R D squad.. and he was now surrounded by all his friends.. meaning Nottorious Bisma, rascal Rehma (from the trio.. apparently she is the "r" in nerd) Evil Ogru (Hofosy Akbore) and Dangerous Danyal ! (who is the evil clone of the danyal in the TRIO :P)

the NERD squad was now united

they all unleashed their powers on the evil Amalethine

Bisma used the protacted of death! Danyal beat boxed and lulled the evil creature to sleep!

and ofc.. REhma talked and talked and bored the evil monster to death:P

but the Ogre was ready to do her signature move.... (dun dun dun)
so the ogre.. went straight to the monster
liftred his hand.. and did the ultimate move..
The Smush of Mehndi! (k yeah i know cheesy:!) .. and covered the ogre in hair!:P

sir Hibbedsalot came out of his snotsy layer.. and plead to the townspeople to take the ogre back.. and so they did. and they all lived happily ever after .. until the sequel when the DUR TRIO fight the NERD squad:P

Weekend - with English Homework

Taken: 11/16/08 *6:16 PM

This picture is a summary of how 27% of my weekend was spent. Though the digit may seem small, let me assure you that that is 13 hours out of the 48 hours in a weekend. Imagine being stuck writing up five "well-constructed" paragraphs analyzing a novel. I don't even want to talk about it anymore! But yes, that there above illustrates the set up of my environment.

The other 43.73% of the weekend was spent sleeping (hey, I didn't get a lot of sleep throughout the week okay? lol). Then about 10% was devoted to studying for a test and the other 19.27% was just spent going shopping, watching tv and surfing online etc.. Just in case someone was wondering :P

Anyways.. the main point of this post is to show-off the picture above so disregard the other rantings if you must :)

Fall: 2008


One of the four beautiful seasons we are blessed with on earth, and also one of the best seasons to capture Nature at its best!
When the the Green Summer Tree Leaves leave their green colour and change into a magnificent sight for all. Leaves falling ever so gracefully... and that gentle autumn breeze!! Subhan'Allah!!

By this time, all the leaves have fallen to the ground so here the some of my captured shots from the season (enjoy!) :

Shining on..

Falling all over..


Grade 11. Semester 1. Term 1 Ends.

Thank GOD.

At least one term is finally over. Yes it did pass by fairly quickly, but it wasn't easy to get pass. The pressure and amount of work this year is beyond imaginable, or maybe it's just me.

Please GOD, help us all survive this with marks which will actually help us in the next coming years! Ameen.

So this first term is over, what next? As of Monday, November 17th, 2008 8:50am - Semester 1, Term 2 beings. What joy! More work, more homework, summatives and exams.. woohoo!

But all this school talk is making me depressed, so let's look at some stuff that will actually give us a breather rather than more grief:
  • A Community Concert is coming up soon - volunteering there should be a blast!
  • EID!! EID! EID! EID!
  • The School Art Show - few of my taken photographs to be displayed! Yay :)
  • A huge birthday party of two of my bestEST friends ever! :D
  • (and then.. what we've all been desperately waiting for, or atleast I have) WINTER BREAKS!!!!!! 35 days to go! .. oh gosh, that's a big digit! But, it's still around the corner!
Anyways.. that's that! Until all the fun stuff..gotta continue to work, work and work hard. It should all pay of one day, InshaAllah.

Another Amazing Forwarded E-Mail (About Life)

Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see & asked the students
"How much do you think this glass weighs?"

'50gms!' .... '100gms!' .....'125gms' ...the students answered..

"I really don't know unless I weigh it," said the professor, "but, my question is:

What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?"

'Nothing' …..the students said.

'Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?' the professor asked.

'Your arm would begin to ache' said one of the student

"You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?"

"Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to hospital for sure!"
….. ventured another student & all the students laughed

"Very good.

But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?"
asked the professor.

'No'…. Was the answer.

"Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?"

The students were puzzled.

"What should I do now to come out of pain?" asked professor again.

"Put the glass down!" said one of the students

"Exactly!" said the professor.

Life's problems are something like this.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.

Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.
Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.

It's important to think of the challenges or problems in your life,
But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to 'PUT THEM DOWN' at the end of every day before You go to sleep.

That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh &strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!

So, when you leave office today,
Remember friend to

Definitely.. what a true way of looking at the ways of life and its problems :)

Belated Eid Mubarak! I'm a few days late! Okay..almost a whole month late!! But the wishes are just as much from the heart as they would've been on the Day-of! So Hope everyone had a most wonderful and fantabulous EID!!

Best Wishes to you, your Family and Friends!

Understanding and A Change of Heart!

Okay, it's 1am now and I just finished doing a project which when I began, I HATED!
Trust me, ask the people I have been bothering for hours and complaining of what a pain this project was. I totally HATED it with all my heart!
I chose the topic, Depth of Field, as a Consideration of Photography for my Photography Class. I chose DOF because this technique was one I always wanted to learn! Hence I chose it so I could use it. When I began my research, NOTHING made sense. Hence the Frustration and hence the non-stop complaining.
I didn't get it. I loved photography, yet this assignment was such a pain to do! Why? I didn't realize it before, but now, after completing, I realized that it was because of a lack of understanding. Now that I've gained more knowledge on this topic - I LOVE IT! Those who I annoyed with the following phrases throughout the day will laugh and shake their heads upon reading this post!
"ARGH!! :@"
and so forth.. hehe
Anyways, now that I've completed this project, I feel so good! I actually feel great that I accomplished this task and not to brag or anything, I'm really proud of the work I ended up producing! Now, to only do a good presentation and get a good mark! Then I shall be super duper happy!
Oh but unfortunately, I also realized now, that this technique of photography, Depth of Field, one I always wanted to use - I can't, as my current Camera does not have the ability (the proper lens)..oh well, I still LOVE it! So in summary, I liked doing er-- I liked COMPLETING this project very much, because in end, it was totally worth it!! Just goes to show you what a little bit (or a lot, in this case) of understanding can do!!
Thank You to those of you who had to put up with me throughout this!

That One Moment

Isn't it amazing, how one tiny moment in our lives can somehow impact the rest of our life to come?

I'm talking about perhaps that one quick minute or two where you exchanged a phone number or e-mail address which lead to a series of conversations (which were great fun!). The one time you decided to have lunch with "those-girls" and ended up becoming close friends with them. The time you decided to say "yes" and agree to work with that person next to you and they ended up being the best lab partner you ever had. The time where your teacher assigned you to sit next to the two new girls in the class and you later became best friends with them in that class. The time that you just let your heart out to someone and knew just how much they cared about you. Those moments, those few minutes in our lives became some of the best minutes of our lives and some, which perhaps made us who we are today.

Then, there are those blessed moments, like the first time you prayed the Kalimah, or recited the Quran or prayed your first full Namaz. And now, MashAllah whether you remember that moment or not, it was a life-changing moment. Those few several minutes which made you the Muslim you may be today.

Good Moments, blessed moments, but also those other moments. Not the moments that made you feel good, or gave you a new friend or made you excited about somethings. I mean the moments which made you cry. Heart broken. Devasted. And the list can go on with many such adjectives. Everyone, I'm positive, has has many such moments.

That one moment, where you heard the last gasp of your great-grandfather followed by the loud cries of all the aunties surrounding the hospital. Even though you were too little to understand death, you knew it was bad, so you cried too. Then, the time you were praying your heart out for your Grand-father, to let him be okay because you knew he was sick. But then, your uncle walks past giving you a motion with his hands which meant that Daada (grand father) was not with us anymore. Another moment, when you were happily coming home from school and suddenly your mother informs you that your Dadda (grandmother) passed away earlier today. Shock Stricken. Tears at ends. State of Depression.

Life is crazy. It really is. It's great at times, when you get all happy about something and life is just too good! Then, there are those moments which leave perhaps a hole in your heart forever, or maybe just a sinking feeling. Nonetheless, those moments are too a vital part of life. As without such moments, one could not distinguish those other ones.

Each and every moment of life is very precious. Sometimes you don't realize it until several hours, days, months or even years. Sometimes never. But every moment you ever lived, are living and will live will impact you one way or another. Each moment is also special. I know I ended with quite a few depressing ones, but think about the bright side! That one really good moment which made you feel loved? Or that one time you "accidentally" overheard your parents discussing what a good person you were? The time where you realized just how much that someone really cared about you? The time where you felt that someone really trusted you? That one moment which just made your day? See, there are tons of great moments we've all had!

Each moment, that one moment, has somehow made us who we are today. Whether it's the way we talk, the way we walk, the way we speak, the way we think, the we behave or, the way we see the world.

I just realized, there are also some moments which we NEVER want to think about (i.e. the time you the most stupidest thing in class, or fell in front of everyone etc..)! haha :P And there are other many moments too, but this post is long enough!

Life is...well, it's a lot of things. And it's filled with moments. Moments we want to cherish forever, moments we never want to forget, moments we regret, moments we wish never occurred, moments which we just loved, moments we wish never ended. Moments, moments, moments! Life is full of 'em! And personally, I tend to think more about those "happy" moments more often than the "sad" ones, because life is just too short to be lived in misery. We're blessed to be alive, so might as well enjoy and make the most of the moments that we got, right? :)

P.S. Forgot to mention. The significance of that Image attached to this post. The Clock, which reads two seconds past midnight. This was a special moment as well, My sister, I believe took that picture, while telling me, "Now, you're officially sixteen". Couldn't have chosen a better picture for this post eh? :)

Never Quit

"Good Days Give you Happiness; Bad Days give you Experience." Forwarded E-mails are usually annoying, but this one, this one is actually worth the reading:

One day I decided to quit...

One day I decided to quit...
I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality... I wanted to quit my life.
I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.
'God', I said. 'Can you give me one good reason not to quit?'
His answer surprised me...
'Look around', He said. 'Do you see the fern and the bamboo?'
'Yes', I replied.
When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.
I gave them light. I gave them water.
The fern quickly grew from the earth.
Its brilliant green covered the floor.
Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo.
In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.
And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo. He said.
'In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. 'I would not quit.' He said. 'Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.

Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant... But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.

It had spent the five years growing roots.

Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.'

He said to me. 'Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots.'

'I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. ' Don't compare yourself to others ..' He said. ' The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern ... Yet, they both make the forest beautiful.'

Your time will come, ' God said to me. ' You will rise high! ' How high should I rise?' I asked.

How high will the bamboo rise?' He asked in return.

'As high as it can? ' I questioned.

' Yes. ' He said, 'Give me glory by rising as high as you can. '

I left the forest and bring back this story.

I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you.

He will never give up on you.

Never regret a day in your life.

Good days give you happiness

Bad days give you experiences;

Both are essential to life.

A happy and meaningful life requires our continuous input and creativity. It does not happen by chance. It happens because of our choices and actions. And each day we are given new opportunities to choose and act and, in doing so, we create our own unique journey.' Keep going...

Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you humble,

Success keeps You Glowing,

but Only God keeps You Going!

First Week of Grade 11


Shocking, yes, but we have made it! A whole entire (well, sort of) week of classes!! Woohoo!
It wasn't that bad actually. Infact not bad at all! I was honestly really scared about starting grade eleven at first, but soon I realized I wasn't alone and that every other student was nervous as well. I guess it's 'cause this is one of the two years which will affect the rest of our entire lives! *glups* Well now, that's a real comforting thought! Oh well, Insha'Allah everyone will do well! Okay so yes, the first week of class - here's a little overview :

First Period : Photography - My favourite hobby! But right now, it's not so great as we're doing sketches and stuff. HELLO! I did not take this class to DRAW. I took it to take PICTURES. Yes please! Hopefully next week we shall start taking some scenery pictures and start doing some real photography. Should be a fun and easy class!

Period Two : English - Has to be the subject which causes me the most grief! But I'm totally excited for this class because I really like my teacher (I had her in grade 9 aswell). Her admiration of English really wants me to learn it well and be good at it. I'm also excited because she said we will be blogging in class aswell! Wooohooo!! Also, the topic we're focusing on, power, is really quite interesting, so I'm really looking forward to English Classes, despite all the hours of hard writing work!

Period Three : LUNCH - Well, it's not like we eat or anything now, 'cause of Ramadan, but this is the period where me and my friends just chill and hangout. A really good breather!

Period Four : French - Oui, le Francais! Je l'aime! I honestly really like french and this year, my teacher is really awesome too! He talks in french a lot so that really helps to improve our oral communication in french too, he's also very easy going which keeps us all relaxed. I'm already loving this class and I hope at the end of it I'll be speaking le Francais quite often!!

Period Five : Biology - What a way to end the day! Biology class with 2-3 of my most closest friends! I think we're THIS close to getting our seats changed because we talk so much! haha! But this is really is fun! We haven't really begun the actual bio stuff but still, it seems like we're going to learn some great stuff! And of course, having my friends with me is an extra bonus!

So that was my week one! Not so bad at all! Pretty good actually!! So let's just hope for the best and see what comes our way! :)

That's 10 months minus one week of school to go!

Oh Happy, Happy Day !!

Ever get a time where you're just SOO HAPPY!? All you can do is smile and or laugh because you are just feeling sooo good!! Maybe it's something you did, or something that happened, whatever it is, YOU know it, and it is making you SMILE ever so much!! :D (Mash'Allah)

I don't know if this feeling will last all day, so the title of this post should've been "Oh happy, happy moment". But whatever! Because I am just realllllly happy right now!! :D haha :P

And no, it's not because today was the first day of school! :)

It's a nice feeling!! VERY nice and joyous feeling, and I'm sure a lot of you will know what I mean! :)

(...actually the smiley-face on the side does not suit how I'm feeling right now because my smile is MUCH WIDER and HAPPIER! :D )

First Day Of School

Yup, today was the day! Well, actually my classes officially begin tomorrow, but I'm not going to write about MY first day back at school. Nope, I'm going to talk about what my experience was like dropping off my two little sisters to school on their first day of Grade 1 and 4.

So, bright and early, we (my sisters, mum and I) leave at 8:26am to make sure we find both the little ones classes before classes begin. Everything's good, we were early we knew the classes and the teachers but NOT where we had to meet them. So we look around, and we see quite a few people gathered around a small piece of paper stuck to one of the doors. How convenient is that?! It had some type of lines and names all squished together, fantastic! Anyways, then eventually the teachers start to come (around 8:45am now) and my mum assured me they would be carrying some sort of signs. Yes, they were.. regular sized papers with their name and class number printed and the paper was stuck to their clipboard (so that you had to be right in their faces to see what was written on it!). So obviously everyone was crowded everywhere!! Though one teacher was actually smart enough to photocopy that paper and stick it to both sides of a meter stick; so props to her!!
Anyways, next it was the line-up. This was funny. All the parents were rushing to get their kids to be first in line and stand next to the teacher. I heard one person say to his son, "Beta, teacher to hi bolna aur how are you poochna, jao" (translation: Son, say hi to your teacher and ask her how she is, go!). Haha...Come ON (lol)! Almost every parent came up to teacher to introduce their child! Like seriously people! You're child will be spending the next 10months with this person, I'm sure they'll get a good introduction!! But sure, they're excited or yeah.
Anyways, the line-ups were pretty messed up and their signs were too small. But it was great to see my sisters entering grade 1 and 4. (They were excited, clearly, and that was a joy to see!)
I remember my first days on those two years. Grade one..yeah, I felt like I was going on some gigantic mission and I thought I was really brave that I didn't cry when my parents left (haha!)! Now I'm in grade eleven .. so the first day isn't such a big deal, but honestly, going back after this felt a little bit different! After all, this is the second last year of high school!

Ramadan Mubarak !

Happy Ramadan to everyone!

This is THE most favourite time of the year for me!

This is the month where "the doors of heaven are opened and the devils are chained in hell". A truly holy and blessed month. We are all sinners so let's make the most of this month. Let's do those good deeds that we've been delaying for the past year. Let's ask for forgiveness and pray like we've never prayed before..directly from our hearts. Life is too short and we don't realize how blessed we are to be alive. Every minute we live, we are bound to commit a sin. We're not that great people, BUT still, ALLAH (SWT) has given us this oppourtunity to come to the right path. To undo what we did wrong and ask for forgiveness. ALLAH is truly merciful. I know it may be difficult to give up those old, bad habbits, but THIS is the PERFECT time! ALLAH is ready to help you in everyway possible but we have to be fully COMMITED! Insha'Allah, if we set our mind to the right thing, we will achieve our goal. This is the time of the year where every Muslim is trying their very best to wash their sins and do good things and ask for forgivness. So let's follow the right path, let's devote ourselves to ALLAH, then maybe, Insha'Allah we will be able to continue these wonderous ways hence forth and be less of the sinners that we were the year before!
Let's start to (just naming a few) pray more often, give to the poor, not backbite, not be so into TV and music not only for this holy month of Ramadan but for the rest of our lives as well. Insha'Allah. May Allah(swt) forgive us all and guide us to the right ways. Ameen.

Remember, you can never know when life will be taken away from you. And when we're gone, it's everything we did here (on earth) that will determine our fate in the afterlife.

Here is a really great video that has to do with Shaytan and how many sins we commit obeying him. It is a MUST watch! (Do try and watch the other episodes aswell, they are really great to get a realization!)

P.S. I would also like to take this moment and ask for forgivness from anyone who I've ever hurt (in anyway) whether intentionally or unintentionally. My sincere apologies.
Also to anyone who feels that they have hurt me in anyway, don't worry, I forgive you too! :)

Last Day of Summer 2008

It's unfortunately here, the official end of summer 2008.

I don't know what to say! Time FLIES! One moment I've just finished my exams and jumped in excitement as summer had begun, and now, the next moment the summer has already come to an end.

So how did this summer pass for me? Well, let me just sum up my two-month events in a small list.
  • I attended a course at the University of Toronto, that was fantastic!
  • I made new friends and terribly missed the old!
  • My ever-so-lovely cousins came from Pennsylvania, that was a blast!
  • One of my sisters turned 6, the other entered her teenage years.
  • Me and my Friends suffered a terrible loss, but that helped us bring us closer to our religion and face more realities.
  • My other cousins came from Indiana, always a joy!
  • Met up friends, those were good times!
  • Went to a few outings, those are always superbtabulous!
And that's really it, nothing so very exciting, but still, there were a few very, very good and fun moments which I really enjoyed! Time has passed, and now tomorrow beings a whole new year of school. Grade 11. Second last year of high school. *glups* No point in dreading it, it will come, and it did, and now it's here!! So here go, another school year to tackle, let's see what life brings this way!

To everyone else, hope you all had a terrific summer! All the best with the new school year!

Heyy This is a shout out to ALL the people who have done anything for me (EVER)!!
I just want to let you all know that it means the WORLD to me!!

Whether you stayed up with me on those late late nights while I was trying to finish my summatives and other assignments (that one truly a big one!! I loved your company!! --you know who you are!).
Whether you just kept me company (regardless of the time).
Whether you just asked me how I was doing or making sure everything was alright.
Also when you just talked to me when I was in the depths of boredom haha!
Or if just simply were just there for me (regardless of the time or mood or situation)! Or if you just made me smile/laugh!!

Point being, it doesn't matter what you did. You did it, and that's what counts! I'm sorry I can't mention it all here, but just know that it all means so much to me!! I don't know what I'd do without you! I hope I can return the favour, because honestly, it's really the little things that count. I really appreciate it and THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN! (and..uh.. um.. keep it up okay? ;) LOL )!

Also, most importantly, Thank you ALLAH(SWT) for blessing me with such great company and such wonderful people, always keep them blessed and happy, Ameen!

(P.S. The Flower is for you all!)

Do I talk too much?

Just a random post here people.

I was just skimming my blog and man, do I write a lot. lol...I mean with some people it's a great thing! Their each and every word has a deep meaning, but I think I just write a whole lotta nonsense (at times!)! Instead of coming straight to the point, I think I rant a lot more than necessary..haha...seriously! Once again, I will use a Facebook sticker to express this:

haha..Completely true!! When people don't know me too well, I get tagged as "The Quiet Girl"...(I know, hard to believe eh?). but once they've gotten to know me, and vice versa.. it's a totally different story! They ask me to shut up! hehe. But don't get the wrong idea, I am quiet person..sometimes, when I want to be, and need to be. ;)

I'd like to take this moment and thank all the people who know me well. THANK YOU for putting up with me and my talks. Whether they make sense or not!! And I hope I'm not too much of a bother!! I really love that you guys listen to me!! So thank you!! And it wouldn't hurt if you talked a bit as well you know ..hehehe :D

See? Here again? I have made this post lengthy enough! And really.. for no apparent reason!! See, if it I wanted, I could've simply just posted that Facebook Sticker and beneath it wrote, "Enough Said." .. but then that would go against the whole idea that I rant a lot!
Ooo-kayy, I will stop now. :D

...I think I just answered my own question.. =D

Just one of the those days...

There are times when life hits us in our soft spots. Everything is A-Ok and then suddenly you get a realization and then things aren't so fine anymore.

Times change, people change. But at times, change isn't so great. Especially when you don't want things to change. Sure sometimes change is a good thing, infact at times it's great! However, other times you would just wish that things always remain the same. Sometimes, when you have something so special...that's when you don't want the change. And Insha'Allah those things won't change (I won't let them!). ;)

Anyways, about "just one of those days", there are times when you're just real down. Y'know what I mean? And you just wanna sit down, relax and maybe just talk to those real close ones? Yup, that's what I'm doing! And trying to ease the mood I started to listening to a really nice song. Which definitely helped soothe the mood.
Then I started talking to a friend of mine (who's been going through a load of changes lately--for the greater good in her case). Mash'Allah, this summer she has gotten closer to our religion and is helping us get there as well. Anyways, she saw me listening to the song, and suggested that I listen to this instead. Surah Yasin. Subhan'Allah. It is recited so well. It definitely feels good to listen to it. See, in her case Change is a VERY good thing.

I'm sure change hits us all once in awhile. What's important is to keep those close relationships no matter what, because if they're not close ones, then you wouldn't have them to begin with. Change or no change! And as for feeling down, it happens every-so-often. I feel it's best to think about the happy times, than worry over the sad ones. That being said, I think I'm feeling better than I did when I began writing this post! :)

I'm sure who ever just read the above is totally confused out of their mind right now.. soo my apologizes! Sorry... it's okay, just forget you read this! :D haha..

Brilliante Weblog Premio - 2008

So apparently there are blogger awards!! Superb!! I always end up winning things I didn't even know existed! Anyways, I was given this brilliant award and honour by none other than my beloved cousin(ish) Majaz!! Here is what she had to say:

Hufsa, for her candid and life-is-wonderful kinda tone. You're a real sweetheart.

Awwh, Thank you So much Majaz! It it truly an honour!
After all, the only reason I started blogging was because you had suggested it to me and it is your wonderful pieces of writings that inspire me to blog more often! So thank you very much :)
And as for my blog, "life-is-wonderful", haha.. well at times, I just try to look at it from a positive perspective!
I'd also like to take this moment and thank all my family and friends who are very close to my heart and are always there for me. It is you all who give me the inspiration I need. It really means a lot, THANK YOU!

Unfortunately I don't think I can carry on the further rules of this award as I have only been blogging for less than a year and am not familiar with seven different blogs.. :$ So my sincere apologies, Insha'Allah next year I will be able to pass on this award to others! :D

Once again Thank you Majaz, Blogspot, my inspirational people and anyone who has ever read my blog! Thank you!!! It really means a lot!!

My Apartment View - GORGEOUS!

"A picture is worth a thousand words" -- That quote couldn't be any more correct!! Therefore I will let my pictures do most of the talking in this post!

If there is one thing that I completely die-heartedly LOVE about my apartment, it's my VIEW. Yes, the view straight from my balcony. Stare your hearts out people:
I could, and do, stand here for hours simply staring at this magnificent sight. Absolutely Stunning!! I love it!!

Here it is on another day : (See the moon on the far right??) :D This was taken past midnight.
And now one more look at this amazing sight---this time, through my bedroom window during Maghrib (Sunset) Time :

See? Who wouldn't mind sitting here and just staring out there??? :D

MASHALLAH...what a view!

This Summers' Most Frequently Used Phrase: I MISS YOU !

I don't know about others, but I can speak for myself and say that this summer I have used that phrase almost everyday to and for many people. Maybe because last summer I was re-visiting my home country so that was fun and the summers before that I was just too little to miss people (plus we were probably busy with things too). THIS year (2008) however I have bonded very closely with a lot of people, maybe that's why now, in the summer when they're all busy with their daily doings, I miss them so much!
I'm not exaggerating, ever since school ended and the summer holidays begun, I started missing all my friends! With less than two weeks before school starts again I can say that every single day since near the end of June I have said to more than one person that I miss them! And it's not only me, but those same people have said the same to me and I'm sure, to others as well.
Thus we can conclude that the most commonly used phrase in Summer 2008 was " I MISS YOU ".

And to all those people who I've said this too, I really do miss you all very, very much!

Better left unsaid..

The old saying is true, "Somethings are better left unsaid".
"'s easier than explaining why you're sad" (Facebook Sticker).

Both these quotes are similar. I have realized that while something is only in your thoughts (your own head) you can choose to focus on it or even diminish it. However, once you tell another person about that, they also know and therefore can bring it or even question you about it. Depending on the situation that can be good or bad.

Good: You reaaally need someone to talk to, you're in a horrible situation. When someone knows, they can talk to you about it and you can let it all out! (yay!)

Bad: You just don't want that attention on you and would prefer that that matter is not discussed. When a person knows the matter (unaware of your feelings about it currently) they might bring it up in your conversation without realizing you don't want to talk about it. (uh-oh!)

That is why you should always be careful how you express yourself. If you're going to walk around with a frown on your face, people will ask you what's wrong. To avoid being asked, put on a smile! If on your facebook or msn you've written "sad" messages or what not, you're asking for people to somewhat question you! If you don't want that, don't write those messages! Simple!
I'm not saying however that you should NEVER let out what you have to say. It IS better at times to just let it all out--pour out your heart! But there are also times when you just need to settle your thoughts in your own head. So you can just sort through somethings on your own. You may even realize that that "thing" was better off being cleared up in your head.

It's two in the morning and I have no idea why I just wrote this post... I think I need to get some sleep! :)


Trusting someone is a very special thing. When you trust or confide in someone, it means that you feel that what ever you say to them will be, in most cases, kept only to themselves. It also means that you strongly believe in that person in a such a way that you feel secure enough to express all our thoughts and feelings to them. Knowing that you can be trusted is a great feeling, especially when you and others know that you are trustworthy.
However, trusting someone can be somewhat difficulty. Especially if you were once someone who usually kept to themselves. You hesitate and always think twice before you share any piece of information with anyone. Then when you actually wonder if you did the right thing or not.

Luckily, I have a few really close and special people who I completely trust (very limited few!), meaning no second thoughts (lol).

But I wonder about others...I guess depending on who you are you would trust other people (that is probably a fact). I wonder if what they're saying to me is a really the truth, or a complete myth. Oh well God Knows.
I'm just grateful to the people that I do have to confide in. :) (To those of you: Thank you very much, it means a lot!) <3

Summer Get-Together

Summer. Six Teenage Girls. Tightly Bond Friends. A whole day of Chilling.

Can you guess how the entire day from 2pm to 10:30pm was spent?

Partying, chilling, eating, dancing, gossiping, hair-dos, make-up, more gossiping and music?

Typical things close teenage girls would be expected to do right? Nope, not us.

Mash'Allah, I am very proud to say that ALLAH has gifted me with the most wonderful friends in the entire world (Alhumdulillah). After not having a proper chat and get-together after an entire month, my friends and I decided to meet up at my place. All of us taking time out of our busy summer schedule to just chill with one another. What did we do? Well, apart from eating delicious briyani, chicken, samoosas and pizza we just chatted. That's right. Talking. No, not about who our latest crush was, or which girl totally pissed us off the other day. Our topic of discussion was none other than our beloved religion, Islam.
It was perhaps the most friendly discussion on some of the most contriversial topics. We discussed the ways of praying namaz, we talked about Jannah. We spoke about milads, Shab-e-Barat, Ramadan, Tarawee and more. (Which way is correct, how do you know if that's right, what do we do when such happens, etc). All of us, coming from some-what different backgrouds and different views on these topics had lots to share. What amazed me most was how we were all so involved (Mash'Allah) in the discussion and understood each other very well. We took the several points into consideration and expressed how we felt about them and asked loads of questions which we tired to find answers too. Mash'Allah, was such a great discussion. Meeting up with your best friends and talking about all this, is by far amazing.
I am very blessed, I think, to be in company of such wonderful companions. May Allah always guide us all in the right path and forgive us for all our sins. Ameen.

Seriously, these girls are my best friends in the entire world. Meeting up them after such a long time and just talking about this topic is perhaps something not many would do. It was such a wonderful day. (Of course we did a few other things aswell.. like running outside when heavy rain started to pour and thunder and lightning struck!) Great Fun..absolutely wonderful!


Why is it that sometimes you have a million things you want to write and share, but you can not decide which to write first? Or even which to write at all? One idea seems better than the other while the other is perhaps something that should not be written. Are some things really better left unsaid? Or do some things have to be expressed? You have a million things to say but don't know what.

This is one of those times.

I've been told many times to keep smiling. I've heard many cliques and what not about how smiling is so much better than frowning or how it takes more muscles and strength to frown than smile.
Which is yes, true. I recently even read a little saying, "SMILE.. it's easier than explaining why you're upset". Again, completely true. This doesn't mean however, that you should not share what you are feeling upset about. This just means that smiling is just so much more easier and also keeps one in a better mood. In fact, here's something that I got out of a fortune cookie recently, "A smile is a curve that can set a lot of things straight". So people, is truly a great gift from GOD, so we might as well make the most of it!
Keep Smiling :)

Friends In Life

Friends in Life? Correction, Friends ARE life. Every choice, every decision, every action we take in life is because of the friends we have in our lives. Alhumduillah, I am blessed with the most wonderful friends in the world (Yes, you know who you people are).

I think, sometimes, what my life would be without the friends I have, and you know what the conclusion is? Nothing. No friends, no life. 'Friend' is only a title given in the English language, but the meaning of that word is so much more dense. It is a person who shares your happiness and your woes. It is that other human being who understands you and who you feel is another part of you. I could go on and on about how much my friends mean to me, but it will be futile. They know what value they have.

So here, this one little post of a few words is dedicated to them and all the other people in the world who have a friend or are a friend. May God Bless us all with the company of such wondrous people. Ameen. And Thank you, for always being there, especially when one needs you most. :)

Rest In Peace Irfan Jogiat

Irfan Jogiat, older brother of one my best and closest friend in the entire world, passed away on Saturday, July 12th, 2008.

Yes, so he was the brother of my friend, but that friend is ever so dear that her brother's death brought a flood of tears and great sorrow to not only me but the rest of my friends as well. It was/is as if he were our own. Sure we only exchanged hello's once in a while, but the pain and sorrow was just as huge upon hearing the news. I was devastated, with tears flowing down my cheeks and the worried feeling about what the family must be going through. Of course, I rushed over straight away to at least be by my friend's side. Her and her family are hanging in there.
What can we possibly say to make them feel better? There isn't a single word or phrase in the world which can compare to their loss--sorry, not their loss, OUR loss.

Everyone and anyone who reads this, Please pray to GOD that Allah grants peace to Ifran Jogiat in heaven and provides support and courage to his family and the rest of us.

It is truely a huge and painful moment in all our lives. The lives which may never be the same again. I just pray to Allah that all will be well for his family and friends. Prayers and praying is all we can do. Of course, the pain is uncurable and depending on the different situations, it may even increase but we must pray as tears will do no good to him or anyone else. Yes I know, it's easier said than done, I am speaking from experience.

We should know though, that Irfan Jogiat is in a much better place than the rest of us, and may Allah give him more peace and happiness in heaven. Ameen.

Here is the article published on him, and another one here also similar.

May Allah Be with us All. Ameen.

Being Smart

"Being smart doesn't mean you know all the answers, it means you know where to find them."
- Mr. Barrens (STEM faculty, SMP at U of T)

A very good way of looking at it!

... don't you think so? ;)

A Whole Year

Today, Thursday July 3rd 2008, marks a whole year since my last visit to Pakistan.

It does not feel like a whole year has past. Hard to think, that a year ago, at this time... I was in Karachi. This year went by fast! What good times I had in Pakistan and collected some great memories. But looking at time... it's now been an entire year. What a year! Wow.. that's all I can say really... one whole year! It does not feel like that at all. It's really hard to imagine! Time is just flying past us before our very eyes. Ticking away... constantly.

First Day At University of Toronto's Summer Mentorship Program

One word. AMAZING!!!

So today was the first day at UofT's SMP. Taking the subway and the bus all by myself definately is a new experience and I am loving it!! It feels so cool, haha! Very fun as well! Hopefully I will not get lost .. I shouldn't.. I mean, it's a simple route :) *fingers crossed* And walking back and forth to the Station is a delight on its own! The whole area is just so neat! Kind of like something you would see in a typical hollywood film lol. Honestly, it is just the most coolest feeling ever! Yes, despite me being by myself!... but you know, gives me good "me-time" and there are tons of buildings and sightings to see! :)

The course itself we haven't gotten into yet as it was only the first day, but from the calender/schedule we got.. it will be one heck of a month!! I'm very excited!!

The entire campus itself is just amazing!! Absolutely gorgeous and stunning!! Of course.. my fear is that if I do not follow the staright route I know for sure that I will be lost! But one day, when I'm feeling adventurous..I plan on touring.. haha (yeah, you guessed it, that will not happen!)! But honestly.. the whole campus of the University and all the different buildings - both inside and out- are just simply beautiful! And of course, it's downtown so even more amazing. How I missed my camera! But, I've got the entire month.. so we're looking at a minimum of 500 pictures by the end of July :)

The faculty I'm in, unfortunately is full of guys [typically] but there are 3 other girls (about 18 kids in total for that faculty-not sure about the entire program though). The teacher and co-ordinator are both very nice and friendly and so it should be a fun month! Lunch was a sad time though. One whole hour, I was alone -- didn't go out 'cause I knew that I would never be able to get back! And my friend didn't show up (the only other person I knew!!). But I did end up talking to one other girl at lunch for about half an hour or so 'cause she was also waiting for a friend of hers who was a no show. So for tomorrow... I guess I'll take a book or something! Luckily though, in the class the students are nice, and I've gotten to know one girl pretty well. So, so far so good!!

I can not wait for the rest of the month!! Should be a fantabulous experience!! After all.. I am now, partially a "university student" ... well yeah, just for the month of July 08! What? It's true!! We have all the rights and advantages of a regular university student for the entire summer! Cool eh? That was the first day..already a blast! Can not wait for the rest of it!!

Back Again & Happy Canada Day!

So I haven't written in a while. A lot has happened since my last post.
Supernatural Finale ... which was AMAZING!
Summatives and Exams OVER!
Summer has begun.

This whole school year of school flew by. Many new people were met and old relationships became stronger. (More on this later). Time is an amazing thing... it really is. What it can do to us and the world around is just astonishing (more on this later too!).

Anyways.. Summer is now here! And today is CANADA DAY!
So Happy Canada Day to All!
Canada, a country with great people, great places, great benefits but most of a all a country which I can call home. And going back and learning about the history of this wonderful place makes you proud to be Canadian!
When I think Canada, I think Maple Leaf, yes, our red & white maple leaf Flag (thanks to PM Pearson... greatest Canadian, in my opinion!).
So happy birthday Canada!! A country, a nation loved by all! :)

Happy Mother's Day

To all the wonderful Mother's out there, Happy Mother's Day!

This Mother's has been a special one for me as last years' was near a disastor!
Here's the little message I wrote to my mom in the card I gave her:

**Mother's day is not only today, but everyday.
But at least we have a single, separate day to acknowledge that.
You mean the world to me.
You are my world.
My world doesn't revolve around the sun,
It revolves around you.
Happy Mother's Day Amma :)
Please forgive me for all the times I've hurt you, in anyway.
Yours Forever,

Sure, some of us don't believe in this particular day, but that's okay. Just take a single day, a single moment, out of your life and tell your mother how much she means to you. You may think it means nothing, but to her, it means the world.

Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles -- My question Answered on CW Connect

Yes... I could not believe that they BOTH had answered my question! It was the best moment of my life!!! My username is Starlite04.

Here's the original post I wrote on the Forum [It was written on Page two, 03-27-2008 - 4:45pm - right after the litercy exam] :

Jared and Jensen : First off, you both are the best actors ever and are totally amazing. Thank you for keeping us entertained! We appreciate it so much! All the best in the Future to you both!

Question: If you were to create a Supernatural Episode what would it be about?

.. And here's what they answered:
Jared CW Connect: Part 2

Starlite04: If you were to create a Supernatural episode, what would it be about?

Jared: If I were to create a Supernatural episode, it would be all about Dean. And Sam would be on the phone in voice overs, and Dean would be having the time of his life. Getting dropped into mud and, you know, run over by cars, and chasing demons and stuff like that. And Sam would be back at his Motel room sleeping. So, sounds good. Right?
Jensen CW Connect: Part 1

Starlite04: If you were to create a Supernatural episode, what would it be about?

Jensen: Well Starlite04, if I could create one, I probably would – you probably would never see it because writing and creating is something that our writers do and they do very well. And to try and compete with that? I’d be an idiot.

How did I find out mine got chosen? Well I actually read that the video's were up last night but didn't see them until today. This is how I found out: [Yes, it's the actual CONVO. Yes, I did save it]

Supernatural - Season 1 to 3

I am going to summerize what has happened so far so those who read my reviews/summaries of recent episodes don't as lost as they are now [after reading Sin City]. Here goes!

Supernatural is show about two brothers, Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles). It is based on Myths, urban legends and other SCI-FI related topics. It has a good mixture of emotions, comedy, action, suspence, drama and much more! The boys go across the Country (U.S.A.) in Dean's most loved '67 Chevy Impala to hunt evil.


The boys got involved in this before/during the time their mother got brunt and killed by a Yellow Eyed Demon. That time Sam was only 6months. Since then their father, John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) has been trying to locate that YED and also killing other evil things along the way. As the boys grew up Dean, being the elder son basically followed in this father's steps and continued their hunting. Sam on the other side left this life and went off to college to study Law.
(This is how they're mother was killed by the Demon)

Season 1

In this season Dean comes to Sam's college dorm to inform Sam that their father is missing and hasn't returned from his last hunt. Af first Sam refuses to go with Dean but later his Girlfriend is killed the same way his mother was and full of anger and broken down he comes along with Dean. Within this season the boys look for clues to finding their father using his Diary which has information on everything he ever hunted and places he went to and so on. They also kill many evil things along the way. Towards the end of this season the boys meet their father and also find a COLT, made by a famous hunter many years ago. This colt can kill ANY evil thing. (As different evils are killed different ways) But this colt, and its bullets kills one and all. In the end of this season the boys caught the Yellow Eyed Demon by after a fight he escapes (as he had hurt the Winchesters quite badly). Then, all Winchesters bloody, but Sammy hurt abit less than the other two drives them to a hospital but along the way they meet a horrible accident by a truck and their Impala is crushed and the Winchesters left in.

Season 2

In this season the Winchesters are taken to the hospital. And before this we find out that there is only one more bullet left in the Colt. In the hospital Dean is hurt most severely. He is hurt so bad that John sells his soul and trades the Colt with the Yellow Eyed Demon so that Dean could come back in full health. The boys have now lost their father and they sure that the YED is behind this. Soon they are both back on the Road, after Dean repaired his beloved Impala. Dean feels guilty that his father gave his life for him and now has a huge burden his father told him before he died. He said to protect Sam or he'd have to kill him. Sam thinks this means that Sam will become evil and tries his best to stay his sweet and caring self but fears what the YED has in store for him. In the end of the season the YED kidnaps Sam who had gotten pyschic abilities from when YED put demon blood in sam's mouth the day he killed his mother, and also kidnaps other kids like Sam (whom he did the same with when they were young). The others are kept hostage for months which led almost all of them to kill the other but only two survive: Sam and another man. The other man tries to kill Sam and suceeds...making that Man the successor of the YED's plans, which is to lead an army of Demons to take over the world. Dean is devasted at the death of his brother that he goes to the Crossroads and makes a deal with the Crossroads Demon. The Deal was made. Dean now had a year to live and Sam was alive again. Now Sam becomes alive in the end the Man who had killed Sam was carrying on the YED's plans by opening this Door to Hell which was located on Earth. Luckily the Brothers make it in time to kill that man but the Door to Hell still opens and relases hundreds of demons. Luckily they manage to shut the door before anything else escapes. Dean in the end though manages to kill the YED with the remaining one Bullet in the Colt.
In this season the boys also come across a Hunter's Roadhouse but that roadhouse and its members are killed by demons at the end of the season. Only two survivals, Ellen (John's old Friend) who wasn't in the Roadhouse and JO (her daughter who has ran away from home). They also meet another long friend of John's, Bobby, another excellent hunter who helps the boys. Both Ellen and Bobby were present when the door to hell opened. This season ends with giving the message that there is a War coming and they better be ready.

Season 3

So far in this season we are in the 8th episode. We are introduced to two new characters, Ruby, who is Demon which is trying to help Sam and is apparently "good", and also Bella, who sort of a hunter except she makes money off of supernatural artifacts. Basically what happened in this season so far is that the boys keep coming across major evil things which escaped the night the Devil's Gate (Door to hell) was opened. They're surprised that if they let the "Seven deadly sins out, what else escaped?". With Sam trying to get Dean out of the Deal he made for Sam and Dean with only a year to live and with Ruby the "good-demon(?)" trying to help Sam and Bella who keeps crossing they're paths and of course with what else escaped from the Devils gate, who knows what will happen next!
