"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

Back in blogland!!

Its been a while since I posted...nearly a month now. There hasn't been much happening in my life, hence the hiatus. Its been pretty mundane and since I have been in no mood for spontaneity....its just been the same routine for the past few weeks.

Been trying to enjoy the winter (if there is such a thing in a hot blooded African Nomad's world). I have decided to not watch or read the news for the past 2weeks so I am 'blissfully' clueless or at least I thought I was but I have been suffering from 'withdrawal symptoms so I had to read some news today. Depressing as always!

I haven't done much since my last post, apart from a couple of going dinner parties (Nemo's and Sara S').

Today at work the most handsome brother I have seen in a long while entered my office. He was dressed in this black qamees (or thowb or dress...whatever you call it) that was ankle length (so no isbaal), he had shoulder length black curly hair and best bit......his face was radiating this nur that just warmed my heart. I had to force myself to lower my gaze. When he uttered the words "Asalamu alaykum sister". I had to quickly gather my thoughts and clear my throat before I replied with a rushed "Wa alaykum salam brother". I didn't think I will ever utter these words but 'native female has fallen inlust with an arab brother' who by the way seems to be taken since he was accompanied by a beautiful sister (bless her lucky soul). Life can sometimes be a bummer but alhamdulillah.

I wanted to post a video of my fav hippo dancing to a Kenyan song (a recent one by the Logombas if your are familiar with Kenyan music). Youtube been playing hard to get toy so I couldn't....instead I will post the link:
It is one funny video.....and the hippo sure can shake looool

As you can see nothing much has been happening in the world of the native one. Before I forget...I have an endoscopy tomorrow so could you all make dua that it goes well inshaAllah. Jazakumullahu kheyran in advance!

Much luv and peace x
