I've actually put down one of my favorite fantasy series to finish later just because I started reading the first two pages and I was hooked! I'm halfway through the book, probably will finish it in another day. When I finish each chapter, I recount to Fahad what I've read and he shakes his head, "Allah la yebarich feehom, chanhom falsoona!" He means by the French who set the pace to Haute Life and Style! I love fashion, I love life and style, but I'm not a slave to them. However after reading this book, I'm beginning to understand those who are addicted to fashion and shopping ;p I highly recommend this book to all lovers of life and style.
So I've decided to declare war on "Al5az"!!! Yes…"al5azazeen" keep your eyes to yourselves! Honestly this practice has gone way out of hand. Just imagine yourself waking by a table of women, as innocent as ever and unsuspecting, suddenly the all stop cwaking as hens, and simultaneously they turn and stare at you. What's wrong? Is there something wrong with me? Did I rub my eyes and my kohl is all smudged and halfway down my cheeks? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? Hehehe… you think that was my reaction? Nooooo… 3az allah ma 3arftooni ;p
I know I know… I'm drop dead gorgeous bas mo lai haldaraja!!! So the women did stare. And I stopped. And stared back… and shrugged "What?" I give them a little twirl and I say as loud as everyone could hear…"You like what you see?" It is sooo self satisfying when I see the uncomfortable and embarrassed looks on their faces!!! They scrambled around still seated in their places, looking around and down at their plates, except at me! Hehehe… yes I'm enjoying it. So take care I do not catch you staring at me ;p
I think it is part of our society characteristics, which they can't help themselves doing. My sister has the funniest expression on her face when she ogles people, and I do enjoy kicking her under the table when she does. But she is an artist at it! she'll tell you what kind of bag and what season the person is carrying and even the price! or what kind of outfit and brand it is, and sometimes she even can tell you the brand of the watch around their wrists which she only caught a quick glimpse of it! Yes, she is a pro! I do not like it. I don't like people staring at me, so I do not like staring at them. Yeah… I'm at war! ;)
No...I'm not going to New Zealand...although it is one of
my dream destinations. Inshallah someday with the boys ;p
So yeah… I broke several of my resolutions. I was at Sultan the other day and bought a couple of magazines, I splurged on books from amazon.com two weeks ago, and my home is crawling with books! I've been indulging on food for the past two months although I'm exercising, but I feel I'm going nowhere with all the rich food I’m consuming. I still can't get anything straight because time is ticking away. I'm leaving in few days, and I hate long flights, and I hate leaving my kids behind even more. I'm going frantic and paranoid. I have a system with them at home which I know it will not get applied at my parent's home, no matter how many rule sheets I've printed out for my siblings to follow and no matter how my many times I've instructed the help to call me if the boys did not follow their scheduel. I'm losing my mind here. I hate these trips where I'm far away from them. I just hate leaving my boys.
